Amplify V
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe Team Tournament
Official Website

Welcome to Amplify V!

Amplify V is the fifth edition of the popular Mario Kart 8 Deluxe tournament, Amplify. Amplify is a team event, where teams compete 6-versus-6 in 12-race matches. This season's tournament starts on January 4th, 2020 and will last until the 18th of January.

This season's tournament will run a new, accelerated format, where teams play multiple matches on both Saturdays and Sundays. Like the previous tournament, the event will start with a dual Swiss group stage, where teams are grouped into two groups which each run a Swiss-format setup. Following this, teams will be seeded into one of two double-elimination brackets and play to the end.

Important: Unlike most other team tournaments on MKCentral, 5v5 matches are not permitted in Amplify. All matches must be played 6-versus-6, although teams may play handicapped if one team is missing a sixth player.
