d. Players banned from Mario Kart Central are prohibited from registering.

e. Players must play with the Switch FC they registered with for the tournament. If a player needs their FC changed, they should notify organizers in advance.
f. If you wish to cancel your registration, please post on the tournament thread or message a member of Mario Kart Central Staff.

e. The Final Four and Finals will be 12 races.
f. Repeats are -10 points and reset each round.
g. Players found with game-breaking lag will be disqualified, and staff will be alerted. (Example: constant warping, causing roulette to have massive lag, etc)

g.i. Players flagged due to lag will not be allowed to participate. To check if you are on the flaglist, please click here.
h. Players may not cooperate with other teams in the tournament in order to gain an advantage.

h.i. Examples of this include voice communication, teaming in-game, and anything else that could give players an advantage. If it’s questionable, it’s probably not allowed.
h.ii. Players that are found to be teaming will be immediately disqualified and will receive a punishment to be determined by Mario Kart Central staff.

i. Players must not use any form of hacking or other exploitations.

i.i. Should a player hack, the host is to immediately close the room, remove the offender(s), and re-open the room. The race will not count and the player will be disqualified and banned from mariokartcentral.com.
j. Should a player lap-troll, the host is to immediately close the room, remove the offender(s), and re-open the room. The race will not count and the player will be disqualified.

a. A team’s total score will be the total points they scored in 8 races for the preliminary rounds (12 races for semifinals and finals)
b. If a player disconnects before a race and this is communicated to the opponents before the race starts, the host should close the room.
c. If a single player disconnects during the race, whatever the final results are in game will be the results for the race.
d. If there is a missing player during a race, such that the results only have 3 people, all 4 players will be rewarded an extra point (the missing player will then get 1 for the race).
e. If multiple players disconnect in a race, the race will not count. If it is found out or even likely that a team is doing this to try to manipulate the rules/results, the results may stand and the team may be disqualified or banned from future site events at the staff's discretion.
f. In the event of a tie, one additional race will be played as a tiebreaker.

a. Brackets will be seeded. Teams may be moved to separate matches in order to avoid collusion between multiple participating teams.

d. The host must open the room at the time posted by the organizers.
e. Failure to join the room within the allotted time will result in an automatic disqualification.

h. If 2 or more players are missing from the results screen after a race, the race will not count and the room must be restarted.

Registration is now closed. Seedings will be released later today. When that's done, we'll have a bracket prediction game running on challonge for anyone interested, in the spirit of the bracket challenge for the rest of the day.

Rule changes have been made under the Scoring tab for this event.

b. Prior to the finals, players who disconnect will receive +2 to their score per race missed.

Has been changed to:

b. If a player disconnects before a race and this is communicated to the opponents before the race starts, the host should close the room.
c. If a single player disconnects during the race, whatever the final results are in game will be the results for the race.
d. If there is a missing player during a race, such that the results only have 3 people, all 4 players will be rewarded an extra point (the missing player will then get 1 for the race).
e. If multiple players disconnect in a race, the race will not count. If it is found out or even likely that a team is doing this to try to manipulate the rules/results, the results may stand and the team may be disqualified or banned from future site events at the staff's discretion.

Another announcement:

If you are having trouble contacting your opponents, a list of all the registrations may be found below:

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1BqpHUhkOtOlXLtLYMdp8j29f4MQBWT9V5ELWcQXQD4A/edit?usp=sharing

We highly recommend that you arrange matches via Discord DMs. Most people you need to contact will be in the MKC Server or in the March Madness channel. If you want to be tagged for exclusive March Madness info, make sure to go to the tournament-roles channel and type ?rank march madness

Additionally, the team on top on each challonge matchup will be hosting the round. For example,



Pyrax / Lez will be the team that hosts this match. This will go for every match in the tournament.

Obviously in a multiple round tournament, we need to move relatively quickly. We likely won't take penalties for host related timing issues unless a team is definitely potentially bottlenecking the bracket. Please be responsible, check the bracket, and read our announcements on Discord throughout the day if you're still in. If any opponents are causing issues, please dm Cynda or I on discord or any other EO Staff who may be online.

Please post all results here, with some sort of picture evidence. The first four rounds will be 8 races, while Final Four Matches will be 12.

Since we already know the Round 1 matchups, rooms should be up by :05 and starting before :10 for Round 1.

One additional rule has been added to scoring as well:

f. In the event of a tie, one additional race will be played as a tiebreaker.

Good luck to everyone tomorrow!

We've made a few slight rule updates before the event, this should probably be the final one.

Old Rules

f. Repeats are -10 points and reset each round.

Rule Updates:

f. Repeats are -5 points and reset each round.
k. Trolling (i.e. going a lap behind to hit people with items) is banned on all tracks aside from GCN Baby Park.


This is simply because -10 is a ton in 2v2, and we believe that getting triple reds and lap trolling is a strat we'd prefer to not have appear for teams in bottom 2.
