Absolutely buttfucked thoroughly tonight. I think they randomly decide what items will actually work when you use them. I had 2 Golden Mushrooms in a row and gained nothing. Someone in front of me got a Star and I managed to keep pace with them with no items.

I remember now why I wasn't a fan of this :(

Nice one @Dcubed, you got GP1 and 3 the wrong way around though. :hehe: 

Fun night. I was not ready for 200cc. Still in Shadow of the Colossus mode. :laughing:

Whoops! Fixed that up!

 

Yeah, 200cc threw me off too.  Been too long since I last played it (and the extra speed from mushroom hell didn't help :laughing:)

My best performance yet. :D

I guess I managed to avoid the cluster this time. I shouldn't get too comfortable I'll be back to my usual placing next week lol.

I just managed to sneak on for a few races near the end.

 

I really need to practice 200cc - I was terrible!

 

Hopefully get to join in fully next week as it’s great fun.

Yep I deserved that.

 

That was a little harsh.

@Nintendo Fan you only need to post the address of the tweets.

I should be able to post the league table and theme sometime on Wednesday. Next theme is a suggestion from @RedShell, so... Yeah, good luck with that.

Sorry for the wait, here's the table after last week.

I know @DazzeL joined in during the last GP, but I don't know if he was present for all 4 races, if someone could clarify that for me, that'd be great.

And here's the theme for tomorrows night, courtesy of @RedShell

Next League Night: 15th February 8pm

Spoiler

Vehicle - Tanooki Kart

Wheels - Monster is available from the start

Glider - Plane Glider

These 2 parts aren't available from the start, so if you haven't got something, let me know, and I'll tell you what the closest thing is.

This week's theme sees the return of Mandatory Smart Steering. You do not have a choice in the matter. Anyone who isn't using Smart Steering will be penalised.

Just as a reminder, you can turn on Smart Steering on the vehicle selection screen by pressing + or - and then pressing L.

Nice touch with the last GP there!

Cheers.

Mushroom only/no item races make for pretty boring MKTV highlights though, so figured I’d try something to make it slightly more entertaining. Almost cut out the last GP entirely, but in the end settled for running it at “400cc”. :hehe:

Yeah, I can totally understand that. I don't think anyone would complain if you did leave out those kind of GP's.

Just to confirm - I only got in for the last 3 races last week so didn’t complete a full GP.

 

IN for tomorrow though - never tried smart steering before so that will be interesting!

That's one way of describing it, yeah. :laughing:

@Dcubed summed it up very well when we did the first "Smart Steering" GP last year, by posting this:
