The missing part; a GOLDSPEED tournament.

DISCORD SERVER: https://discord.gg/CxMYXNa

All rounds prior to semi-finals and finals will be casted by Larry, and semi-finals and finals will be casted by Troy on http://twitch.tv/mkboards

LACUNA is one of the first (if not the only) Mario Kart Wii pay-to-enter tournaments! With an entry fee of $4.99, an irresistible prize pool awaits you. The tournament will play with a double-elimination style format and will divide players into brackets based off Mogi Lounge ranks for maximized competitive play. There will be no bracket conferences – each bracket winner will receive a prize!

In the past, a pay-to-enter event was dismissed because there was no way of ensuring people weren’t cheating their way to the prize. With advances made on CTGP and Wiimmfi, we can safely say that not having hackproof tournaments is history. This tournament will require all participants to play on a disc and load through CTGP with My Stuff turned off. Thanks to wiimmfi.de, we can view an individual’s settings to ensure they are abiding by this rule. The host of the room will also be required to turn the “Reject players with My Stuff” setting on, so people with My Stuff can’t join the room.

TO ENTER:
- Must pay entry fee of $4.99. (click here to convert to your currency) Side note: Challonge DOES take debit card as well, just runs it as credit.
- Verified friend code and rank in lounge
- Must be able to play on a disc (no ISO or Dolphin allowed)

PRIZES:
- All winners will receive a cash prize (the amount will be the same for all winners)
- As more participants enter, the cash prize rises. The amount of money awarded is dependent on the number of participants.
- For example, if we receive 60 participants, the cash prize will be $90 per winner. (Challonge charges a $0.50 fee per player, hence the 10% loss)

This tournament play with the double elimination format and will be separated into brackets (assuming min. of 60 players sign up):
- Bronze
- Silver, Gold
- Platinum, Diamond, Master

Peak MMR will be used to determine which rank bracket they play in. Other factors such as WL performance and personal opinion may come into play if necessary.

If the numbers allow, I will expand how many brackets there are, so we can increase the number of winners we have. Ideally, there’s a minimum of 20 players per bracket to start out with.

Highlighted rules:
- Double elimination format
- TC Autofire off
- Rooms will consist of 10 players
- My Stuff off
- CTGP Only

I highlighted these 5 rules because it may determine for some if they will play or not. The full ruleset is in the Discord server.

Please note that certain restrictions apply. You may not participate in this tournament if you are:
- from Iowa, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Rhode Island, Vermont or Virginia
- from Quebec
- under the age of 13
- under the age of 18 and reside in the United Kingdom (UK residents over the age of 18 may participate)

If you wish to view a document that contains references to legal codes and information on the legality of this tournament, there is one available in the Discord server.

If you have any questions, or would like to stay updated with the tournament, please join the Discord server!

thank you, and yours truly,
Savannah

Happy to say that Troy is joining us for casting! Right now, the plan is for Larry to cast all rounds prior to semis, and for Troy to cast semis and finals.

how about draggable blue shells
If I'm completely honest with you I forgot that existed. Will have a vote in the server about this

...unless only allowing Nintendo Tracks prevents it from happening?

edit: yeah draggable blue shells won't be possible since host settings require Nintendo Tracks only
