I doubt it'll happen as people don't tend to show up. I think it may be a good idea to move it to a Thursday night as people who join on Wii U will be able to join on Switch as well.

I know it only happens once every few weeks, and only a couple of people turn up, but Thursday is ARMS. :shifty: If you're choosing completely arbitrarily could you do Tuesday instead?

Sweet. In repayment I'll try my best to play some MK8D on Tuesdays. ;) It's not a great night for me but maybe I could just join for a few races? (Or is that rude? :shifty: )

I'm up for Deluxe Tuesdays :toot: (can't do Thursdays). Sixteen races, 150 CC, Hard CPU?

I'll setup the tournament in a moment and post the code here. In time, maybe we could race on the Switch on Mondays but it would seem a shame to do so before the U sessin dies out.

I could do Tuesdays. Hopefully that works for everyone, would be good to get some regular games on switch :D
I wouldn't want to potentially ruin another games night when the whole point of moving it is to not clash.

I've never used voice chat but I think some people use discord. I think Pedz posted information about it.

I'm a noob will that alert Pedz? :lol: :fp:

On Wii U we didn't use voice chat (that I'm aware of) but I'm sure some people did on switch for the few weeks we did play at the start.

Ooh, please may I ask that this change isn't made? The Tuesday kart tournament is not actually replacing this Monday event. I will put out the details in the new Mario Kart Tuesday thread in just a moment. Thanks!

I played a tournament on Switch immediately followed by a tournament on Switch last night and some of the variances were interesting*:

> The track name shows up on Switch :toot: ... it has long since disappeared in the U version for some reason
> The results table is still shown better on the U version; once a race has finished the race results are shown and then the overall positions are shown, but the overall positions are not shown on the Switch version. Quite an odd omission
> The between-race text chat function runs for longer on the U version than the Switch version; on Switch you are sometimes cut out of the text chat before everyone has chosen their choice of track. The button to access the text chat has changed, too (A on the U, X on the Switch)
> The bump in graphic resolution on the Switch really is quite nice... and the shiny crown worn by the last race winner on the course selection screen is a cool touch!

The great thing is that the game feels the same on both versions; you shouldn't have any trouble adjusting from one version to the other.


* Well, maybe not interesting... but I noticed them :-).

Ok, it was asked a little while back that when the Wii U servers are shut if we'd like a Tuesday for MK8D or Monday. I would like Monday. The reason is I planned on doing Telltale Tuesdays on the GRcade twitch channel from 9 until I finish a chapter, but it would clash with Mario Kart 8 if that was on on a Tuesday.
