Hello everyone and thank you to everyone who participated in the presvious season of MKU. Hopefully everyone had fun, and got to feel the adrenaline pumping in a competetive environment. When something ends, we usually start something new, so we figured we should probably tell everyone of our plans as of right now. First of all, we are gonna become two staff members fewer. Ronan and Teeples are leaving the staff group, and we thank them for their time and wish them good luck for the future. We are currently unsure if we want to add another member to staff, but if we decide we need more people we will announce it. Continuing talking about staff internally, we have re-established Admins for MKU Staff. We've had a couple of situations where we've seen that the lack of someone in charge has been a negative thing, so we are gonna try it again. The admins got voted to be Nato and myself, but this will not change much for anyone outside of MKU staff. So what is in it for you guys now? Well, a couple of weeks ago Nato posted this thread, and since most of the responses were positive we've decided to go with that idea. We will start signups today on a new thread, and they will end on Saturday September 23rd. We need some time to tweek the ruleset and to generally prepare for a new format, so the tournament itself would begin on September 30th. This would run for 3-5 weeks depending on how many teams sign up, so if you want your Mario Kart fix before the next season of WCL style competition begins I strongly urge you and your team to participate. We want to inform everyone that results in Season 1 will be the main factor for seedings next season of normal league style, but if someone does a lot better/worse in this tournament than they did in Season 1 we will take it into consideration. We would start a "normal" wcl style after this tournament, which would be the official Season 2. We also got a new logo, and changed our color here on the boards. If you want to see a high quality verison of the logo check the spoiler below. Spoiler: logo And that should cover everything, feel free to give us feedback below. We do listen to you and will consider anything you guys say. Cheers!
