Wow what a story today...

Alright for today, we have Titiumshiftum, Funkman 64, philleaz, Prof3ssor MGW, Ebil and NintenKing as 6 of our 8 finalists.

I know there were lockouts, disconnections and the sort. It really helped if you were in the chat for your time slot. Some groups were able to merge, others not so much. We had one accidental picking of Daisy Cruiser, but it was not played, and the user didn't qualify to get a DQ.

The 3rd place finishers:
Mavrick593 ($EAN)
Supermariofan99 (Cole)
ZingZing45 (Austin)

We also had one scratch. Apologies to Luigitime for his 3DS was stolen.


Good thing I didn't pick Daisy Cruiser by mistake, I just realized I thought you were talking about the other daisy stage lol.

Another random note, somehow a Japanese dude attempted to join group 3 today (4-6), but thankfully contestants exited out when he attempted to start, and he eventually left.

So if that's any indication, it's best to have your friend's list off while playing tomorrow, and especially next Saturday.

Also, for the 6 of you that made it, we also need to agree on ONE timeslot. I will take suggestions if you have a preference. I know a few mentioned they needed to camp for the Wii U and have other plans and what not. So I was hoping for a 12-2, 1-3, 2-4, 3-5 or 4-6. This one will be the hardest to schedule since we need all 8 to agree. So I really hope everyone has entire availability next Saturday. It will be a single community since we won't have the time to break it up and have the winners do a show off. I can make the finals 90 minutes if that helps anyone or something like that too. But I'd like to just have the single community so it will be finalized.


Ebil = Available all day
Phil = Anytime after 2PM

I'll go with 3PM - 5PM

Thanks for putting that together with the 3 times. Let's hope someone doesn't need it earlier.

T-minus 1 hour until the Semi-Finals round 4 begins! Don't forget to join the chat!

Based on the previous round and from my experience playing with some of those who you will be playing, I think you should have a shot to finish in the top 2. I haven't raced everybody, and I don't know if people have been practicing, but I still think you have a fair shot.

Really? Thanks! Well that makes me a little more confident :D

Also, I hope we can have everyone in one group from the start.

I might try to get another going next year, but it definitely won't have the caliber of prizes that this one does. I might try some different formats or something to. Although the way this was done seemed to work pretty good. I have to discuss with the staff and site owner who helped contribute our 3 large prizes (Wii U deluxe and 2 Wii U games). If people just want to play for fun, I can organize them a lot easier too.

Just skimmed through a few pages, but didn't find a scoreboard for the Sunday race. Can you tell me who moved on today? Sadly, something unprecedented came up, so I was unable to race.

I got 1st and KirbyisAwesome got 2nd so the two of us are moving on. I was sad that you weren't able to make it, we waited for quite a while too, but noticed that you weren't even browsing the forums so we had to start.

edit: I need to make an adjustment to my time. Gbatemp semifinals are next saturday at I would assume 12:00pm PST (3:00 PM EST) but it's just one gp, will probably take me until 12:30 (3:30) at the latest. I'd like for the nintendo fuse finals to start after that, so preferably 4-6 or 5-7 EST.

Since it seems like we got half of the finalists to post, 4-6 looks to be the official time. I sent out 5 PMs (confirming with philleaz), so it seems like we will have a time for this to go down. It's exciting and sad at the same time.

If anyone wants to compete in Kid Icarus, there is a topic for that in the Gaming Events section hosted by a fellow member, Cocoa. The official NintendoFuse one was about a month and a half ago. That one will be in about a month or so from now.

There will be other tournaments in the future, so if you have been knocked out, feel free to stick around and challenge others to play. Based on the success of this one so far, it seems highly likely to have another one next year. Feel free to lurk around, post in other topics there's always discussions going on at these forums. I'll try to consider messaging you in the future for other tournaments, but it's always easier to stick around and post. I am also open to suggestions for further improvements to structure as well.

Alright for 4-6 I have confirmed:
Ebil
Mnemosy
Prof3ssor MGW
Titaniumshaftum
philleaz (just awaiting confirmation, said after 2pm was fine, which this is)

Going on Hattrick's suggestion of community, I already have someone available for a race on Wednesday at 8pm EST. Any finalists that want to sample or feel out the competition is welcome to join, along with any/all eliminated contestants and any NintendoFuse staff (I plan to play!). It will be in the official NintendoFuse community (in my signature below).

Wednesday at 8pm EST! There's no official end time, so you can play 1 GP, or several, whatever people want to do.

Yea, I would keep going to them, but I found out about them in February and got 1st place the one time I went. Once you win you get whatever prize they had for you that day, and an entry into their "grand finals" tournament for all the 1st place winners some time in January, 2013. It will be 16 of the first place winners; 8 people from January to August, and 8 people from September to December (2 winners per month).

^pic of me after winning the February tourney.

edit: I see you live in Long Beach, you should check out StreetPass OC. They hold meetups closer to where you live, so you don't have to drive all the way out to Little Tokyo. It's chill going to both though, for the raffle prizes, streetpass, etc.

I want to try my skills at a tournament... wish they had ones out here in IL, more specifically Chicago. I know there's a streetpass Chicago group, but I haven't gone to one since their last 2 events were on the Kid Icarus Tournament day and the 1st day of the Mariokart 7 tournament.
