Miiverse Community for the GS* Bar League:
https://miiverse.nintendo.net/titles/14 ... 3331491656

That is right! It is Week SIXTY-SEVEN of the GS* Bar League! The world lost a timeless legend of an artist this week when David Bowie passed away. His influence on the arts have transcended mediums, generations, and genres. That is why, this coming Friday, the MK8 Bar League returns with a special David Bowie theme! Join us in our David Bowie event! Show up with your Mii masqueraded as David Bowie! If you need help building a Bowie Mii, here is a good source: http://www.miicharacters.com/?_form=sea ... earch=Find

Raffle! We are also hosting a raffle for the Bar League event. Anyone who participates in the David Bowie MK8 Bar League event is automatically placed into a raffle for a chance to win a David Bowie digital album of their choosing! It doesn't matter how well you do in the races because everyone is entered into the raffle based on participation. The overall race winner will be crowned with the ever "respectable" title of Keeper of Das Boot with its custom forum icon, however. ;)

Double your chance to win the raffle! You can have your name entered into the raffle TWICE by changing the Mii associated to your NNID account to Bowie or Ziggy during the event. Just remember to keep the Mii name as your handle so we know who everyone is for the raffle. If your Mii shows up in the tournament's resulting leaderboard, you will have double the chance of winning the raffle!

Good luck & see you all this coming Friday! :D


Welcome to the Shellslingers Mario Kart 8 Bar League!

A rather "infamous" feature at Gunslinger Gaming during the Wii generation was the weekly Bar League where members race to be crowned the "Keeper of Das Boot" and be given a special forum rank. Thanks to Nintendo providing a convenient in-game Tournament feature for Mario Kart 8, the quest to be the keeper of Das Boot is back! Please read the following information to learn how to participate, goals, and the event rules. Cheers!

CURRENT KEEPER OF DAS BOOT: ShaX

CURRENT TOURNAMENT CODE: [See top of MK8 Master List]

CURRENT TOURNAMENT DATE/TIME: January, 1/15/16; Friday @ 5pm Pacific/7pm Central/8pm Eastern/1am GMT

CURRENT MII THEME: David Bowie
CURRENT WEEK TOURNAMENT SETTINGS:
  • Mode: Racing; 150cc
  • Tracks: All
  • Teams: No
  • Items: All
  • Vehicles: All
  • Control Methods: Any
  • COM: No COM
  • Race Count: No Limit
  • Race Duration: 2 Hours
  • Group Shuffling: Off


Tournament Information and Rules:
General Point:
Registered members of the Shellslingers race in a weekly, Frosty Pints-themed tournament using the Mario Kart 8 in-game tournament feature. The member with the most race points at the end of the tournament is given a Bar League custom rank and icon to show the fact that he/she is the current winner, otherwise known as "The Keeper of Das Boot." The tournament settings change every week, and a new funny Mii theme is attached.

Goal:
Winning each weekly round results in the GS*Forum rank, "The Keeper of Das Boot," and is accompanied with the following icon next to the person's username:
Image
Winning isn't everything. This is a Frosty Pints event, after all. We will be laughing it up on Voice Chat and showing up some silly Miis that will earn some chuckles in highlight videos.

How to Participate:
  1. Register in the Gunslinger Gaming Forums.
  2. Post your NNID in our Mario Kart 8 Master List.
  3. Reply to this topic prior to start time to confirm your attendance and be guaranteed a spot.
  4. Add the Tournament Code found at the top of said Master List.
  5. [Optional] Check the Mii theme and make a funny Mii relating to it.
  6. Race! Have fun!
  7. Post your good times and share highlight videos in this topic at your leisure.

We are adding a twist to when someone successfully defends his/her title. Should that happen, the Keeper of Das Boot gets to issue a decree. Meaning, he/she can choose the settings of the following week's match to in effort to continue his/her reign on the beer throne. The defending Keeper of Das Boot has 48 hours to post in the the topic otherwise he/she opts out of that ability. If we have a three-time repeat winner, the racer who came in last place will choose the following week's settings.

Rules:
Please do not share the Tournament Code to anyone who is not a Shellslinger member. If you have an odd Mii name, be sure to let us know who you are; otherwise, we can't award someone a winner if we don't know his/her identity. We want to accommodate everyone, yet we want to event to run smoothly. Because of this, making additional race rooms after the tournament is open may not always be possible. This limitation may affect people who do not sign up ahead of time or show up late. Do not take the competitive aspect overtly seriously. Really, we are finding an excuse to meet up and race together at the same time during Frosty Pints. ;)

Looking forward to this. :D

We have to race as our Mii, right? Do we need to include our name and the person we are racing as in there too :?:

Nope, you do not need to race as your Mii. There is a Mii theme that I encourage everyone to use for laughs in the lobby, but it isn't required to take part in the tournament.

Note: it WILL be very helpful if people used Mii's with their name in it so we can more readily track the winner of the event. :D

*See MK8 Master List for the Tournament Code that you will need to add to take part in the event!

Cool idea, I'm going to see if the wife will let the kid and I have the game for father's day rather than his bday at the end of August. So we can play it over the summer :D

I've got to work tonight, but if the feces doesn't hit the ventilator I might stop in to vent and say hi to everyone. Have fun everyone!

Taking off early from work today so I can get a headstart at practicing, even though I don't stand a chance, lol. But wouldn't miss it no matter what :D
