Mario Kart 8 Know Your Meme Tournament.

Last posted Jul 20, 2014 at 03:54AM EDT. Added Jun 03, 2014 at 06:26PM EDT

Hello everyone. As you all probably know, Mario Kart 8 was recently released. In the game, you can create Tounaments, which works just like communities did in Mario Kart 7. Now I thought to myself: “Wouldn’t it be awesome if people from KYM could race against each other?” Well, ladies and gentlemen, I have created a Tournament for us here on Know Your Meme. If you wanna be part of it, simply just read the rest of this post.

Rules:

150 CC
No CPU
Items on
All vehicles allowed
32 races (This is how many races you can race before you no longer can get points and the Tournament is over for you. You don’t have to race 32 times if you don’t want too. The reason why it is 32 is because that 32 races takes around 2 hours.)

The Tournament is on every Saturday from 10 PM CEST to midnight. That means from 9 PM to 11 PM UK time (BST) and from 1 PM to 3 PM PDT. Don’t worry, the time can be changed.

Now, since we want this to be between members of KYM and not random strangers, you will need a code so you can find and join the Tournament. In order to get the code, follow these simply steps.

If you want to join, simply PM me and tell me that you want to join. After this I will send you the Tournament code. Then you simply use the Tournament code to search for the Tournament.

That is all folks. If you got any question, feel free to ask, and feel free to post your Nintendo Network names in the Thread. It is more fun if we know who we are racing against. I’ll start: My Nintendo Network name is Mark and I’m from Denmark, Region Zealand. I have a very generic Mii (I didn’t really think about making my Mii special when I was making my Nintendo Network account. Now if I had known you couldn’t edit the Miis used to represent your Nintendo Nertwork account after you had made them, I probably would have put more work into my Mii)

Happy Racing!

This is one of those times I reeaaally wish I had a Wii U. Also, KYM people might want to post their Wii usernames here so we know who we’re racing.

Oooh, sounds like fun. I’m totally up for it if other users are. I believe my Nintendo Network name is Brandon, from the UK, East Midlands. My Mii is also shit, as I am naturally shit at anything remotely creative. Also, I will ban anyone who chooses either Piranha Plant Pipeway or Thwomp Ruins should the options come up. Just a warning.

This is something I’d definitely like to join in on; the only problem is I don’t have a copy of Mario Kart 8.

I’m pretty fierce, so I’ll have fun with this tournament. I’m up for this.

Just so you people know, Mount Wario and DS Wario Stadium are my best tracks.

Wish I got a Wii U, more of a PC gamer.
Mario Kart 8 looks very great.

;-;

This is going to be great! I might not be able to play this Saturday, but eventually I will get in on the action. As for my account, I’m considering on making one separate from my personal Mii just for this. I’ll get back to you guys with the name if I can. It’ll probably be called “Sam” or more likely “Spider” to keep with my account on KYM.

Just a reminder that it is tomorrow that the Tournament takes place. Hope to see you all there so you can get owned by me.

That was fun, but I don’t think it’s physically possible for anyone on the planet to be worse than me. I’m just that bad. (I was Kas BTW)

Weasel has the weirdest sense of humor. He was “leaving” after every race.

Well guys, the Tournament is over for this Saturday. It was really fun and I hope you all had a great time as well.

And don’t worry Random 21, this will be a weekly thing.

Also, Weasel

“This is my last game.”

It felt like it mas me and Thygen mostly in the lead, which was pretty fun because he is a real challenge. Really, I actually think he is on par with me. Also, goddamn Music Park was chosen so much.

Also Thygen, how wonderful was it when you used the Super Horn on me and immediately a Blue Shell hits you in Royal Raceway? I almost died laughing.

Great game guys.

It was not wonderful… not at all.

But it was funny.

I still came in first place though!

Hope I can make it soon! I just recently got Mario Kart 8!

If I can I want to stream one of the tournaments sometime. But I will need to get some capture equipment to do so.

Maybe get the Avermedia Live Gamer Portable, but I think that only works with recording and I don’t exactly have that kind of money right now. Will have to look into it.

Oh, by the way. If I come to the tourney, my Mii will be Ice Man (from the Mega Man franchise).

I’m looking forward to getting served by Count and Weasel tomorrow!

So we’re still on for this tournament right? I reallymhope there sre more people this time instead of just 5. Seems good so far based on these posts. (By the way, I will be a Mii. Which Mii? It’s a surprise…)

Alright, the tournament is tomorrow. I’m guessing there will be more people around this time!
I’ll be going as Wario this time around because the Wario Bros consisting of me and Thygen needs to happen.

My setup will still be the same:

Jet Bike/Comet
Gold Tires
Wario Glider

So then, while me an Thygen take the lead, have fun!

(Today is Saturday in Hong Kong. I’m going to compliment thygen until he pukes this Sunday)

My Combo:
Roy Koopa
Sneeker
Retro Off-Road Tires
Bowser Glider

Can’t wait to see you all. Don’t forget that if you want to join, be sure to send me a PM so I can send you the code for the Tournament.

With that said, good luck guys. Me and Weasel will be sure to cheer for all of you after we have crossed the finish line.

Just a reminder. The Tournament will start in an hour. Good luck everybody.

I unfortunately won’t be able to do much racing today, but I’m hoping to be able play at least a little bit.

Oh my god I hate life. Finally get free time to join and my Wii U’s like “Oh I see you want to play Mario Kart today. HAHAHAHAH LOLNOPE”. It refuses to load anything but Brain Training, which doesn’t sound like a fun alternative. Sigh, Guess I’ll just have to spend the night looking at Dr. Kawashima’s horrifying polygonal face.

Why not just go to the home menu and close software?

Well nothing else is loading besides this game, and doing a bit of Brain Training is better than spending a few hours trying to fix my Wii U. If I get it working before the tournament ends, I’ll join

For some reason I’m unable to join the tournament, which sucks. I guess I’ll have to try again next week.

Well guys, it was fun playing with ya. I hope you had fun too.

I must ask, Weasel. Why didn’t you show up today? It seemed like you would after the posts you made here? I missed my Wario ;-;

Also, You guys are welcome to be friends with me on Miiverse. Just remember to say that you are from Know Your Meme okay?
