    Please make any questions, comments, suggestions, or concerns about my Mario Kart DS Tournament in this thread.

    Link to sign-up thread:

    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=55819

    The IRC channel for this tournament will be #MKDS_Tournament on IRCHighway

    EDIT: There seems to be some confusion about this tournament. Snaking is allowed in this tournament. Hope this clears some things up.

    Its impossible to do an acurate non snaking tournament. You can either have a tourny with MT's, or without... you cant have a bit of both. For example, in a non-snaking match, who can say how many MT's your alloud to use? in F8C, coming out of the first corner, who can say exatly where your last MT can be before your on that straight way where its considered 'snaking'. or when it comes to the striaght, and instead of MTing left, right, left, right, and you just repetativly let rip right facing MT's on the straight section the whole time? That is not considered snaking, but for some it would seem against the rules still. What im saying is, unless you say 'you can only do a certain number of MT's per lap' or 'no MT's at all' a non snaking match would be incredibly inacurate. Having a snaking match is a great idea, it solves everything, and your alloud to do whatever the hell you want. and its more fast and fun... the only problem is all the snaker haters wouldnt enter, because they know they dont stand a chance. So good luck on getting 30 -50 people that you wanted [​IMG]

    I'd sign up, but It wouldnt be any fun without any solid competition [​IMG]

    Good luck with the tourny!!! [​IMG]

    Are you sure that you don't want to play? I myself am pretty good, and I'll probably invite some other talented people. We need all the players we can get [​IMG]

    Oh, and would you like to race sometime? I'm just curious to see how good you are [​IMG]

    there is snaking (thats the only chance for me winning xD) but just to make this clear, no hacking right? and if you play on an R4 DS no AR codes on.. just to make sure =D

    Yeah sure, It will probably be on a Saturday. And of course any sort of hacking/cheating will be strictly prohibited. I want the winners of this tournament to win by skill, not whoever can find the best AR codes online.

    I'm interested, but some questions.

    how will results be recorded?

    no snaking is fine, but can you still use skid turns (slide without powerup)?

    Oh, and is it US only or will you ship to other countries?

    Yes, snaking will be allowed. And results will be recorded by posts in a special topic made for them. One person from each round will post the results of the match in the topic. And if the poster is lying, then the other participants will post the real ones.

    Damn, I'm training every day, at least one hour [​IMG]
    But I still suck at snaking, mainly because I get such a pain in my fingers if I do it...

    Any tips for that ?
