Mario Kart 8 Test Tournament Winner


Update: The winner of our Mario Kart 8 tournament has been decided and it's a great big well done to Tsuki who was by far and away the winner. Second place was well contested with Spud just coming out on top, although our own Ash 'Magnapop' Buchanan certainly gave people a good challenge.

We'll have an official tournament with a special prize soon, however we will likely turn this tournament and in the future, the likes of Super Smash Bros, into a weekly event.

Well done and thanks to everyone who took part in our fun Mario Kart 8 tournament.



Original: We are planning to host a ShopTo wide Mario Kart 8 Tournament, but before we do we'd like to do a test run and make sure things run smoothly. So who is up for a bit of Mario kart 8 just for fun?

If you'd like to take part then simple post your Nintendo Network ID below and head into the tournament when it begins later tonight from 5pm.

Question: What do people prefer, Karts or Bikes? I'm trying to find a good combination for tonight
Benjamin 12 months ago

Loli-Nox-Tan 12 months ago
Also Inside Drifting or Outside Drifting? I prefer Inside
Kaysar 12 months ago
I'm a kart man, myself
Gloria 12 months ago
Karts for me too, with a heavy character, usually DK, and I'm flexible with my drifting.
Bindiana 12 months ago
Havent played much of it but i preferred the bikes they seemed faster to me.
Danny_936 12 months ago
although i don't have an Nintendo console nor Mario Cart 8, this is a really good idea by shopto staff, gets the shopto'ers playing/competing against one an other and sounds fun.
Fear Sinséir1612 12 months ago
Thanks for that, 'Glam_Glo' :)! Where was my head at? Admittedly, I have never accessed a tournament before. I usually just opt to enter the randomizer online versus modus! Definitely will be hoping to join! So, ShopTo also be doing this for ForzaHorizon 2? Might pre-order it then, although, I would like the steelcase edition with the tickets inside of it, admittedly! Wouldn't mind something like this for Drive Club too! I should own a PS4 by then!

Loli-Nox-Tan 12 months ago
What setup is Ash using? I can't get near him,lol
Loli-Nox-Tan 12 months ago
Scratch that
Kaysar 12 months ago
Well I've discovered I shouldn't use my "mates" as a bench mark for my Mario Kart skills. You guys have owned me!
Ash Buchanan 12 months ago
some close races there, one bad one with no decent powerups and it all went south. next time.
Gloria 12 months ago
Yep, good games, should definitely make this a regular thing.
Kaysar 12 months ago
I think I need to practice some more before I give this tournament malarkey another go...
Ash Buchanan 12 months ago
just to make you all feel bad, I have not even completed 150cc yet. only the first grand prix.
LFC Bywater 12 months ago
Feel well left out :( lol. Do more soon though sounds like fun.
spud218 12 months ago
StephenW81 is mine :-) had fun so far
Gloria 12 months ago
I've not completed 150cc either, I'm pretty crap really, just have the odd good game now and again.
Bindiana 12 months ago
Haha I didnt even get into the picture had fun though
Kaysar 12 months ago
Can we have a wooden spoon prize? I think I stand a great chance of winning that one each and every week ;-)
RTLF 12 months ago
What a great idea! are there plans to do any tournaments like this for games on other consoles?
superniceguy 12 months ago
I was too busy yesterday, but if there is another one then will join in.
Gloria 12 months ago
Least you beat Joe Bindania ;)
Bindiana 12 months ago
True I got 58 or something in the end the last race I had against you I came last as nothing would go right if I did better i might of just sneaked into the picture.
Gloria 12 months ago
I was surprised how well I did really, wouldn't have done half as well if I'd started with Nox and Akemi etc, but a few races without them gave me the chance to nab a couple of first places and boost my placing.
Bindiana 12 months ago
In my defense the tournament last night was only the second time I had played online so was not used to real player competition
Gloria 12 months ago
You were having enough trouble with the AI from what I saw ;)
Bindiana 12 months ago
Haha true was trying out Mario on a kart when usually use Yoshi on a bike and they handled completely different.
Gloria 12 months ago
Yeah, takes a bit of experimenting to find the right combination for everyone.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
