Would players flock to the Wii U version if we 'forbid' Switch on Mondays, or would they just go and play something else? I get the impression the people playing the Switch version either don't have a Wii U or don't want to go back to the Wii U.

The best way to resolve this would be to have a vote on changing the Deluxe session to a different day (Switch owners vote only). Then, if it stays on Mondays, the Wii U players can have a vote on changing their day. Call it a referendum if you like.

We already had a vote and Monday won. It's the day most people are available to play.

With the possible exception of Dragon and perhaps Pedz I can't think of anyone who was playing the Wii U version who has now stopped. Myself and Qikz had long stopped being regulars. Most of the Switch players are people who didn't own a Wii U or MK8.

We did. Mondays won it, though Wednesday was quite close behind.

I've got no problem with us having a proper discussion about it. All the talk of "Traitors" and "being deluxe" is fine as I think most people realise it's a bit of fun and there's nothing malicious behind it. I just take offense to being called a "twat" and a "banana split" because we happen to play a game at the same time they do. I didn't realise that us playing at the same time somehow detracts from their ability to enjoy the game they have.

Ultimately it's Mario Kart Mondays. Not Mario Kart Wii U Mondays.

And yes it's a silly thing to have an argument about.

Obviously the way to resolve this is for Wii U owners to trade in the console and MK8 and upgrade to Switch

There was a vote, rinks, but the results have now been cleared. I think that Monday and Wednesday were by far the most popular nights, finishing - I think - equal.

I think that's probably it, Karl. Which is fair enough.

I doubt that any of us are going to change our opinion. Probably best to just play whatever version you want, whenever you want to.

I will play the U version at 2100 on Mondays for the next few weeks at least. I'll also be keen to play the Switch version at other times outside of that one-hour slot.

Hey guys. I should point out I was deliberately being a fake devil's advocate arse. Re-read my suggestion with the knowledge that I knew there had been a vote already.

WiiU been running for three years now and has pretty small numbers. So even the loss of one or two players has a significant effect.

Kart temperatures are rising.

There's only one sensible way to settle this.

I don't see the problem with people playing on Switch on a Monday, as Denster said it's been running for 3 years, why should people change the day they play just becasue they have a new console? They shouldn't.

And I stopped playing on the Wii U version near the end of last year. I wouldn't be playing on the U anyway.

I joined the tournament, and I'm standing here waiting on this blue planet, and nothing's happening. I assumed I was waiting for the current race to finish, but it's been ages now.
