Coming October 27th to the NintendoFuse forums...

**If a console stock issue arises, winner receives $350 cash via Paypal

Prizes will be US version. Will ship any/all prizes within USA/Canada.

There WILL be additional prizes to hand out as well!

Tournament Details:
Tournament will begin Saturday, October 27th 2012. It will be 3 Saturdays Oct 27th, Nov 10th and Nov 17th. Each week about the top 3 from each community will advance to the next round, aka next Saturday date.

Players will be logging into the communities that are sent via PM each Saturday and racing with whoever is in the community. Times will be based on participant availability and registration. I will be logging in when the specified play time has come to an end and will be grabbing scores. If a race is in progress it will not be counted. Players can continue to use the communities during the week to practice or play for fun (codes will be posted with results), or use the official NintendoFuse one to play.

Players will be registering for a specific 3 hour session on each Saturday that they are playing. After the 3 hour play session, I will be grabbing scores. There will be multiple communities through out the day, so if someone needs to switch let me know. If you register for a community that I do not have on file, your ranking will not count.

It will be in an official NintendoFuse Community(ies), and participants will have to compete for the highest amount of points. Winner of the final community GUARANTEED one of the grand prizes. Depending on number of participants, there may be multiple communities at the start, and each week condense the top qualifiers to a new community. Participants can play anytime during the contest period, but there will be recommended play times on some week nights and all weekends during the course of this tournament. This tournament will last approximately 4 weeks, with each official day on Saturday October 27th, November 10th and the finals on November 17th.

Requirements:
(1) Participant MUST be registered on the NintendoFuse Forums. Communities will be sent out over PM on this forum so other players not in the contest do not participate.
(2) Participant MUST register their Mii name and 3DS friend code.
(3a) Participant MUST post a picture of their Mii (if you don't know how, reveal step-by-step instructions below:
Hidden (Non-Spoiler): show
1. Open Mii Maker
2. Click QR Code/Image Options
3. Save Mii as Image
4. [Choose the Mii that is associated to your Mariokart 7 file/Friend's list]
5. Select "Face"
6. Remove SD card from 3DS and insert into a computer
7. Open DCIM folder, open the folder within this one
8. Find the picture of your Mii face
9. Copy this file to the computer
10. Access a website like photobucket or imageshack (site that hosts image files)
11. Upload this file
12. Copy image code or URL link
13. Place within a post within this topic

(3b) If you are unable to perform the above, or simply do not want to, you MUST race me once before the contest. This guarantees that I receive your Mii and can do the above steps for you. If I already have your Mii (like from the Kid Icarus tournament) then please let me know to post it.
(4) Select a period of time between ONE of the following:
10am-1pm (EST)*
1pm-4pm (EST)*
4pm-7pm (EST)*
7pm-10pm (EST)*
*This is Eastern Standard Time, or UTC -5:00, make sure you know the difference between this time zone and your local time zone.

Practice makes PERFECT:
It is known that you will want to practice and polish your skills beforehand. NintendoFuse will try to host numerous practice events leading up to the tournament where ANY member of NintendoFuse or ANY STAFF member can help polish those skills of yours. Community code for PRACTICE is: 49-7013-6157-1921 (same one presented in my signature/Mariokart 7 topic) or the registration community (41-6826-6893-0120). Any user can play just by registering this code. Ranking in this community does not matter, it is for practice. Most practice sessions will be week nights or weekends. JHARDIN1112 (Jeremy) has offered 1 hour lunch times during the week. Please try to schedule those in advance if requesting earlier times. Practice sessions to be posted in this topic or the "Wanna Play" topic (viewtopic.php?f=164&t=6531) or Mariokart 7 topic (viewtopic.php?f=170&t=7932)

**Reminder: you must have the latest patch 1.1 from the eShop to participate. This corrected some of the online course glitches.

I really interested in entering this. Will the winner of the Wii U be the best person over all or raffle type thing? The raffle part turned me off from your last contest. Please consider letting the Wii U winner be the best player over all.

I've added my MK 7 online info as my signature. Is that good enough or should I post it in an actual post?

I haven't competed in a Nintendofuse Mario Kart tournament in a while. This should be fun.

I'd like it to go this way. We are still organizing the tournament. Also need to make sure the races were legit (someone didn't register a dummy account). Thankfully this is easy to see if someone has way too many points and a non-registered user has points (since thankfully all racers get points).

We are also seeing the range of number of participants. If we reach a good number, prizes will go 1-2-3. The additional prizes will go to those advancing, or other runner ups depending on size.

I need to determine the requirements. But yours should be okay since you are on my 3DS (XL!). The key thing is being able to match faces either from picture to community, or from my friend's list to the community.

For those 4-7 I believe it only shows faces in the community, and that is the easiest way to rank and know who is who.

The raffle was more due to the number of games. It could have been unfair to those advancing to the top quickly and with 10 games, it was harder to determine 1 overall winner. Since this is a single game, it could easily be the best person we get. And with it being online, you can always see who is playing and join the next group or whatever. So it will be easy to get points. Like I said I want to try to schedule specific times, but will allow 24 hour play if people have the time for it. I will be ranking based on community points, and also determine if the registered # of players match my records and whatnot.

So the logo contest... Is it just words or a picture? For example: should it be like the mario kart 7 box picture, but with nintendofuseforum's name on it?

It should be an image, and include 'NintendoFuse' and 'Mariokart 7 Tournament'. Any backgrounds or characters or other parts of the image is up to you.

See the Ambassador Contest threads for those submissions (I think they are still there).

That works. Nice job! You could take out the Forum part if you want, but I think it might be fine as is.

Would I be able to compete for fun? If I were to win a prize or something, it could go to the next person down the list of course. I just think this would be cool to participate in if we get a lot of people playing.
