MK8 Deluxe - The First Frosty Pints!

Welcome to our FIRST Frosty Pints Event for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe!!!

Roughly nine years ago the Gunslingers tradition called Frosty Pints---grabbing some brews on Friday evening and playing some raucous rounds of games---started with Mario Kart Wii, and we are happy (Happy Hour Nintendo, that is; inside reference) to announce that the tradition continues into Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. If you have the Nintendo Switch and are picking up MK8D on launch day, you are invited to join us as we blaze through some double item wielding races and duke it out in the newly expansive battle modes.

Here is what you need to know:
  • Frosty Pints will begin around 4pm Pacific Time (6pm Central / 7pm Eastern)
  • Communications will occur in our MK8 Discord Channel.
  • GS*Silus will start live streaming our activity around 6pm Pacific (8pm Central / 9pm Eastern) - LINK
  • We will be raiding both worldwide races and battle mode during this time.
  • BYOB

Keep in mind that Frosty Pints is a weekly event, and expect to see Tournament rooms set up starting the following week.

If you are reading this and have not yet become a Shellslinger, change that by becoming a member: ucp.php?mode=register

Welcome to another new generation of the shellslingers!

P.S.: Don't keep Balki waiting. He already has the game. ;)

Thank you for hilarious races and battle last night. I can't wait to make this a tradition for yet another generation. It was great to see old school members like Mikey & Korchie racing along side with with new members like Brot. Also, thank you, Silus, for streaming the activity!

Here is a link to his Twitch video: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/138763637
[Hmmm...this reminds me that we should have an embed code for Twitch videos as well....]

It's a shame the online infrastructure is in shambles. Hopefully they get it sorted out soon. Tournament room will definitely be a better experience.
