Please never use that setup and track choice again.

You say that every year and yet, here we are.

I'm quite excited about next week, I've got a new twist to implement.

You can turn it off mid race by pressing start.

I did, but wanted to finish last. I didn't relise it as I have drifting problems (with pro controller), so when it didn't follow my commands I thought that was the problem..... :D.

That's a lot of movement seeing as we're approaching the end of the year.

Speaking of that, just a heads up that the 17th of December will be the last night of this year's league before the Christmas break kicks in.
Anyway, I hinted that I had a new twist to implement fo this week's theme, so here it is.

Next League Night: 10th December 8pm

Suppose I better explain myself.

Survival Battle is my attempt at replicating the original format of Battle Mode seen before Mario Kart Wii changed to the more modern point format. Here is how it works:

  • The aim is to be the last player to lose all of their balloons. Pop everyone elses in order to obtain 1st place.
  • If you lose all your balloons, you are considered "Out" and your placing for that round is set.
  • Even if you are "Out", you can still continue playing and try to pop other player's balloons, but you won't be able to improve your placing even if you hit other people.

How do I figure out where everyone places? Easy! I'll watch each of us on MKTV after the night ends and use a stopwatch to time how long you last. The person who lasts the longest will be placed 1st.

Anyway, some more things to note:

  • If time runs out and more than one player has survived until the end, your placing will be determined by the number of balloons you had left.
  • If two people have survived until the end and have the same amount of balloons, then your score will determine your placing (Much like normal Battle Mode).
  • That second tie breaker will also apply in the unlikely event that two people get knocked out at the same time.
  • In the spirit of fair play, anyone caught remaining idle in order to hide themselves from the action will be penalised.

I think that about covers it. This is very much a trial run for this idea, so it might not work perfectly. Do give me some feedback afterwards, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask.

I might get distracted by Cyberpunk on the 10th but I don't want my attendance to suffer! I'll try and pull myself away as best I can. No promises though.

@Glen-i, question. What should the time be set to per battle? 3 minutes like normal?

Oh right, knew I forgot something.

Yeah, normal Balloon Battle setup.

I guess no one will know how we did until @Glen-i post the results but I feel like I didn’t do as well as the scoreboard showed. Fun twist on it though. I had the crown a few times but it meant nothing. 😂

I'm pretty bad at battle mode. Last round was pretty good though.

I freaking hate battle mode, curse you @Glen-i!!

hate is not right, I’m just not great at it, but I still curse Glen for doing it.

Right-o, for the sake of clarity. Here are the results of each round.
Timing starts at the moment "GO!" appears. Should a player lose all their balloons, then the timer stops when the screen fades to black.

I hope you lot liked my revivial of old-school Battle Mode. I'll be sure to have it show up a few times next year. Only a few though. It takes me around 3 hours to watch everyone throughout! Don't mind though, I learned that @martinist is amazing at using mushrooms to steal balloons!

Boy, this year sucked, huh? Luckily, social distancing is normally how you win in N-E League, so at least that went ahead as planned. But it's almost done, the next night will be the last one of the year.

Last League Night: 17th December 8pm

Wow. I did surprisingly better than I thought. It’s a good spin on the battle mode. I like it. 
Yeah it seems when you’re not around @Glen-i I seem to do better and get my score up, so if you could do that again next yeah that’ll be swell 😝
