Tournament Structure

  • Players will be split into two groups, A & B
    • In the case of an odd amount of players, one group will have an extra person
    • These groups will be released in #tournaments-announcements at 1:00 PM EDT
    • You will have 15 minutes to join your respective voice call (either Mario Kart A or Mario Kart B)
      • You are not required to talk within the voice call
      • If you do not show up by the time the tournament starts, you may be disqualified from participating in the rest of the tournament
    • The MK8DX ref will PM you via Discord with the in-game tournament code and instructions, read the instructions carefully or you may be disqualified
  • The tournament will consist of two rounds, the group round and the winners round
    • Group Round (May 1st (Saturday), 2021 @ 1:30 PM EDT)
      • Both groups (A & B) race within their groups following the rules stated above
      • After the online tournament for group A and group B end, the top 6 participants from both groups in terms of driver’s points will be moved onwards to the winners round
    • Winners Round (May 1st (Saturday), 2021 @ 2:30 PM EDT)
      • The players who move forward will be announced in #tournament-announcements by the MK8DX Tournament Ref and the code for the winners round online tournament lobby will be PM’d via Discord
      • You will have 30 minutes to join the Mario Kart A voice call and online tournament lobby
  • Placements
    • First Place: The player who places first (in terms of driver’s points) in the Winners Round
    • Second Place: The player who places second (in terms of driver’s points) in the Winners Round
    • Third Place: The player who places third (in terms of driver’s points) in the Winners Round
  • Tiebreaker
    • Should a tiebreaker occur, the players will have their driver’s from the Winners Round added on their driver’s from the Group Round to determine placement
    • E.g.
      • Player 2 & 3 tie at 100 driver’s points in the Winners Round for second place
      • Player 2 had 90 driver’s points in the Group Round whereas Player 3 had 80 driver’s points in the Group Round
      • Player 2’s combined score is 190 and beats the Player’s 3 combined score of 180, so Player 2 takes second place, and player 3 takes third place.
    • If the players are still tied after combining the scores from Winners Round and Group Round, all players tied will receive the prize of the associated place


  • Players can be disqualified from the tournament for any of the following actions which are up to the sole discretion of the MK8DX Tournament Ref
    • Trolling other racers without playing through the track normally
    • Intentionally glitching or cheating
    • Colluding with other players in order to hamper other racers or manipulate points (this is supposed to be a free-for-all)
    • Any other actions that are deemed by the MK8DX Tournament Ref to be harmful to the tournament
  • If a player disconnects within the middle of a match, they are allowed to rejoin, but they will not receive points for that specific track
  • No spectating is allowed
