REGISTRATION DEADLINE: APRIL 23, 2022 @ 23:59:59 PM UTC (8:00 PM ET)
DATES: APRIL 29, 2023 → JUNE 3, 2023 (SATURDAYS)
Note that June 3 is tentative. The tournament could end earlier depending on the number of registered teams.
It's been a year since the last one! Overdrive is back for 2023! 200L: Overdrive is a bracket-style tournament for 200cc. It was first hosted in August 2020 and has become a staple tournament between our main league tournaments. This event will be a double elimination bracket, meaning that teams who lose twice will be eliminated from the tournament.
One change we will be making to the format is we will be introducing a single feeder bracket into the main bracket. This is to hopefully give newer teams more time in the tournament. The eight highest-placing teams from 200L: Season 8 will be pre-seeded into the main bracket, while the remaining teams will play for a spot in the main bracket.
Match Times & Dates
Like Overdrive III, we are asking that teams be ready to play at both 3:00 and 4:00 PM EDT (21:00 and 22:00 CEST) respectively on Saturdays. Each bracket match comes with a scheduled date on the Challonge bracket when it is made available, so be sure to look out for its release in the 200L Discord server, linked at the top of this thread.
The tournament will begin on April 29 and is tentatively expected to run until June 3. Please note that the end date is not final and is subject to change depending on the number of teams who sign up. Depending on the number of signups, we may decide to use a bracket schedule similar to MKCentral Frontier/Paradigm for the feeder bracket, so be prepared for that schedule to release as well.
Similar to all other tournaments hosted on Mario Kart Central, 200L: Overdrive IV will utilize the MKCentral Universal Ruleset, which can be found here. You can also find it in Spanish, French, and German.
Teams have until April 23 @ 23:59:59 PM UTC to register and make any necessary player transfers/registrations for 200L Overdrive IV. Any player transferred onto a registered team after this deadline will be ineligible to play 200L: Overdrive IV.
Please note that, due to the issues on the MKCentral registry, we ask that you make a ticket with the MK8DX Staff in the MK8DX MKCentral server if you are looking to make transfers for your team.
We will be releasing a tentative schedule soon, so be sure to join the 200L Discord server.
