I'd prefer if you just submitted one time to keep the thread more organized. One idea - each time you record a new PB on the course, take a screenshot of it, and until you're satisfied (like until you reach a point where it's very difficult to beat your time) submit the time you're best pleased with.

I hope that's alright.

Ok perfect, that's how I've been doing it 👌🏼

My best is 2:07.793

I think I could've shaved a couple more seconds off if I spent another hour or two, but looking at other peoples' times I don't think that would take me through!

The best I could do, seems like it will not be enough. Yoshi's Circuit is the perfect first course but at the same time also a tricky one.

Great time! But is racing a ghost allowed? I figured it could give an advantage since it shows the racing line etc.
Oooh I didn't think about that... If it helps that ghost is my own attempt from earlier, I didn't copy another person's build/line for this time

I figured it was your ghost and you did get a super quick time... I guess any potential ghost advantage is very very slight, and you would still have a super quick time without it, so 🤷🏻‍♂️

I think ghosts shouldn't be allowed going forward though

I can see that, I'll make sure to only drive without a ghost in the future (if the others are ok with me being in the tournament still, not sure how they view the use of ghosts)

Of course now I see the discussion about previous ghosts 🙃 Is there an easy way to disable them? Honestly I've never really messed around with Time Trials before in any capacity, certainly the first time I entered the mode since I got MK8D at launch lol

Going into time trials you can choose between driving alone or against your own (or others) ghosts, right before starting the race

That's what I thought I did too, but both times I clicked retry after finishing three laps it automatically showed my previous ghost the next time. Is there no workaround for that?

Ooh I thought that just happened if you were already in ghost mode, which I went to on autopilot. Then I guess you'd have to go back to the menu and go back in everytime, not ideal...

Oof, I was afraid of that 🙃

I never used ghosts because I always found their silhouette distracting while I'm racing.

But OK, ghosts are banned from now on. I'm not going to ban jirou from the comp though.

That’s weird, I don’t remember that happening for me. I chose single player race (or something) from time trial menu, and had a few tries

I was never suggesting jiroh should get penalised or banned by the way, sorry if it sounded like that

Admittedly it could be user error behind controller; as I said I don't normally mess around with time trials and could just be very confused about what options I selected haha 😋

Nah, I mentioned a ban just because I wasn't sure regarding the rules at that point, no need to say sorry. At least to me it was clear you didn't want me banned haha

I kind of regret posting my result so early now. PokéNeutral knows exactly what they have to beat, and it's a very average time 😅

If this tournament goes well, it'd be nice to have more in the future. So even if you're eliminated early, hopefully you can participate in another event sometime.

After all we're getting so many tracks with the booster pass.

OK.


Round 2 lineup is here.

Does everyone have the booster course pass? I wanted Mario Circuit 3 as our next track.
