    About

    Hello and welcome to the first bi-monthly GBATemp Cup! I am delighted to run this tournament, and as such, I will continue hosting this tournament unless I am unable to do so; which I will pass the honor on to a volunteer.

    This tournament will be a standard, two sided tournament with 4 people competing at one time and 3 moving on. There may be a case where only 3 people can compete at once; thus in that case, only 2 people will move on.

    The tournament will be held on a currently undetermined date. It will be held sometime between 2/10/2018 and 3/3/2018. The tournament will last for approximately one week so it gives every group a chance to race and submit their results. Groups will be determined randomly and once the groups are determined, the results will be posted here as well as live streamed on Twitch by @bennyman123abc.



    Game

    The tournament will take place on the game "Mario Kart 8 Deluxe" for the Nintendo Switch. I will include a link at the bottom of this post that will take you to the eShop to purchase the game if you would like to compete in this tournament and have not already purchased a copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.


    Rules

    Standard game rules do apply along with the following list of rules.
    • NO CHEATING OF ANY KIND!



    Entry and Registration


    Tournament registration has ended. Thank you all for signing up!



    Result Submission and Racing Group Exceptions

    • To ensure valid race results, each racing group will be required to verify the results of a race by either sending a screenshot posted on Twitter from one of the Switch consoles, or the entire group agreeing on the submitted results. A picture on a cell phone will also be allowed, but will be verified for integrity.
    • Two people who live in the same household or can easily visit one or the other's house may request to be in the same racing group.
    • Results will be of the best of 4 races for each racing group.



    Tournament Bracket

    The final tournament bracket will be posted after the tournament registration closes.



    Special Thanks

    This section will be updated as needed over time.
    If you would like to spread the news of this tournament around and provide proof of doing so, you will be added to the sponsor list!

    Current Sponsors:

    Special Thanks:
    • Nintendo - Developing and publishing Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the Nintendo Switch!
    • The Staff Members of GBATemp - Providing us with this beautiful website and allowing this tournament to be born!

    We can cheat with a console that don't have hacks yet? :unsure:

    Also what is he (THE SPONSOR) advertising? Or why is he a sponsor? :blink:

    He advertised on his Discord server. And I included that in case some people want to use something like the microcontroller thing that Quagsire showcased.

    Ok. Also, I will collect all of the Switch friend codes when it comes closer to the tournament.

    It's because I advertised the tournament in my Discord.

    If I enter, am eternally shunned if something comes up that makes me unable to compete? Will it throw off the tournament?

    Nope. If you need to be removed after registration ends, just let me know. If anything it'll give one person an advantage by being shoved to the second round automatically!

    I'd suggest finding everyone who signed up on either GBAtemp or Discord and DMing them the entry code. :D
