Mario Kart Chat I
Tournaments are used to organise a night of races with GRcade's Club U and usually occur on Monday (8995-3668-4616) and Friday (8936-8616-1275) evenings. Details of the next tournament can be found in the topic title. Simply type the tournament code into the tournament section of Mario Kart 8 to join the fun. If you'd like to race on another night, feel free to ask if anyone else is up for some karting action.
To take part in the regular Monday and Friday night tournaments, you will need to buy and download both DLC packs. Each pack is available for the low price of £7 and gives you three new racers, four new kart sets and eight new tracks. There are two DLC packs available to buy and both are available in a bundle that costs £11 and also gives you a rainbow of colours for Yoshi and Shy Guy.

It even has gain control so you should be able to sort out whatever mic, built in or otherwise, to a good level.
The main issue with the "official"/GPL Mumble client is (besides looking absolutely awful and having a drill-down menu structure) the "push to talk" button on there is a toggle, not momentary - not sure if I made this clear - so you can't just hold it to speak temporarily, which would have been OK. But this app has that option, and signal-to-noise options!
So if anyone wants to set up Mumble on a phone/tablet without any other stuff in the way, just install this app, configure the app to push to talk and have it in your lap or whatever to poke when you wanna join in the bants. Alternatively, if you really can't get your head around pressing a button to talk, use SNR with conservative settings. The idea is we don't (ideally) want to hear all of your background stuff while you're not talking. Also the controller noises are pretty loud too. Finally (so you remember), you MUST USE HEADHPHONES, or the feedback loop will instakill everyone presentFeatures:
