Title: GTT is back! Fridays at 9pm UK
Post by: rylan on May 21, 2012, 12:59:53 AM
GTT is back! Fridays at 9PM UK (check your local times via the internet! it's not that hard just google current time uk)

The original Mario Kart clan based ongoing tournament is back (mainly due to WCL ending again).
We're an easy bunch and don't want this to be stressful or too much work, so check your drama at the door and remember this is all for fun!

The basics are:
GTT = 20 events per season, teams must play at least 7 of them for ranking. +2 per race missing player, dcs on scoreboard count as real points. hosts reset whenever the fuck they want to, if you don't like it, OFFER TO FUCKING HOST NEXT TIME

It's very simple to participate in the GTT, we strive for simplicity, so simply follow the 3 step registration guide for your team:


1) Please have your players register on the forum: (

2) Once logged in have them go enter their friend code at the top of the page here: (

3) Activate team and set manager(s):
Tell a GTT admin your exact team name and which player(s) should be initially set as managers. (Teams can only be entered by an admin.)
When creating your team, one (or more) managers must be selected, these  managers are able to add and remove players from their teams as well as set the participating players for the team each week. The other role of managers is to set teams as participating YES/NO for the next event (default is no, so you will be marked as NOT participating each week until a manager selects participating: YES - see  below)


Your team can sign up for the next event by having a team manager go to your teams page and select the YES button for "participating in next event" (find your team here: (

If you want to verify your team is signed up for participation or to see which other teams have already signed up go to the status page here: (


To submit scores, start a topic under "Scores" (NOT here in "General Discussion") with the scores from the match, and the room number from pairings.
Score subforum: (
We need your scores to enter points and reset and reopen registration for next weeks event. Due to past problems with days of closed registration due to unscored matches, we will be requiring all scores to be posted within 48 hours of each event.

Scoring Responsability: it is everyone's responsibility to keep score, if you want points you should submit your scores. Don't depend on host teams to take photos, get some yourself! (In fact as a historic rule of the GTT, the host "has enough to do" so the other teams should really take photos and do scores)


We prefer if teams send a representative to the skype chat between an hour and 45 minutes before the event, this is so we can arrange hosts for the rooms and communicate with teams about any problems.
The GTT is a 3v3v3v3.

GTT team registration is NON-EXCLUSIVE, meaning you can play on as many teams as you want, we leave it up to clan leaders to decide weather or not to allow their players to multi-clan. Since most don't allow this, it sorts itself out for the most part =)


No hacking, whining, or being a douche.
If you violate the rules we reserve the right to verbally abuse you and/or ban you from the tournament.

Check back every now and then for changes to these rules.


Pairings: (
