The Grand Team Tournament is making a grand return to Mario Kart Central! Originally a Mario Kart Wii tournament from 2008, the GTT is an open-ended 3v3v3v3 tournament with the goal of offering more organized MK to players craving it. Players will play in matches with two teammates with the goal of getting their team ranked as high as possible. Matches are weekly on Wednesdays and Saturdays. To sign up, simply click the event signup page below. The GTT won't be required for teams to play every week, so it's encouraged to find some friends to sign up with, and you can decide which weeks to play. Before every match, we'll have a 10 minute window ( :45 - :55) for teams to decide if they'd like to participate. Rooms will be posted on Discord at the hour. That being said, it is mandatory for teams participating to have a representative in the Discord Server for organization. If you are a player looking for teammates, you can always post that you'd like to participate in the Solo Player Queue on the server also. To get information on how to play, make sure to go to #tournament-roles and react to the appropriate GTT message. This tournament will be more casual than others, and a play as you feel type of event. We highly recommend it for new players trying to find some instant site event to participate in!
