Hello once again, Ninfora members! This is Lt. Surge, host of the widely popular and retired Mario Kart 7 and Mario Kart Wii game nights!

 

Every Thursday night, I am willing to host a night of Mario Kart 8! All the craziness of the new eighth installment of Mario Kart in what I am hoping to be a successful night of fun, laughter, and nail-biting races! Joining is pretty straight forward: RSVP your spot by indicating your interest in participating and  use our tourney code to enter the weekly tournament! Please be aware that both DLC packs are REQUIRED to participate in the tournament. Also, the last Thursday of every month will see the speed class in the tournament change from 150cc to 200cc for a night of high speed and crazy item shenanigans to say farewell to the current month and start anew with the following month.

 

For those that wish to be in contact during the races, there is the forum's Discord server and the MK8 channel that was built on the server. There, we can chat via text and even join the voice chat channel in the same app.

 

Were there some epic moments during the night you wish to share? That's highly encouraged! Pick out some highlights from the night to show off those Banana, Green Shell, and Bob-Omb snipes, Blue Shell dodges, photo-finish endings, or maybe an unfortunate combo of items used on you (probably won't see too many of these :P ) and share them with everyone here!

 

With that, I hope to see plenty of racers every Thursday! See you on the flip side!

 

 

(Tentative)

For the week's top racer, they will receive the Top Karter rank. This rank will be held by the winner for the week, from Thursday night/Friday morning to the next rank distribution the following Thursday night. Consecutive weeks of being Top Karter will be handled as such: the winner will be recognized as the Top Karter, but the rank will be given to the player who finished in second place in points.

Glad to see this ain't dying along with NS2! This is something I look forward to every week and I feel it has helped make us closer as a community. :) LONG LIVE MK NIGHTS!!!

I'm so happy to see this moving to Ninfora, and you as well, Surge! I think I'd like to try giving the races another go again. I've missed racing with you guys.

Hey, the Mario Kart nights were my ideas, I'm certainly not gonna let the only active one sit and rot on NS2.

Great to have you back on board, Aya!

Are we going to make a new tournament that reflects the new website name? I'll see if I can join this week. I've been busy so much on Thursdays that it's been tough to find time to make it out!

What i understand is that it will still be the same tourney code, but the name of the tourney will be altered to reflect the change from NS2 to NinFora

Just now, Link said:

Surge, will you be managing the Mario Kart threads on NS2 and Ninfora simultaneously or is it moving here entirely?

If I could figure out how to lock the NS2 thread with my newfound Mod powers, I would have that locked right now and be stictly on this new site. All I can hope for is minimal interaction on that site and those that have not made the transition from NS2 to NinFora to do so soon.

Yeah, do consider renaming the tourney and saving us the trouble of having to join a new one if it can be helped.

By the way, officially the current name is written as Ninfora, or you could call it N4A for short too. Feel free to use either of those!

I'll be in the races tomorrow night. I think I got the mic on my latop to work through a Windows 10 update. So I'm gonna try and see if the mic can work through Discord from my laptop, instead of my phone.

Kind of weird, just last week we were racing in a tourney as NS2ers... we'll be racing tonight as... um... Ninforas?  Yeah, Ninforas!  But we'll be racing with each other so it won't be too out of sorts I suppose. :P

I know, I am still trying to get used to NOT saying I'm an NS2 member to folks.

Try to test that early. At least an hour or 30 minutes before showtime.

Yeah, I'm gonna try at 8pm, I'm gonna do some worldwide before tonight races. I hope PB show up then or anyone else who is free.

 

My NNID is Ancologia, either @mention me, status me or PM me here for me to get your NNID for those joining tonight for the first time and welcome.

 

EDIT: Huh, I think the mic is actually working on my laptop thru Discord, no way to know if anyone can hear me as a test (cause currently no one is on that voice channel) but I see my avatar icon light green when I speak through it. Currently racing Worldwide right now.
