KartExtreme Grand Prix Finals - Season 1 (Premier) ... Sign-Ups begin Dec. 9th 2016: This finals will be the last stretch of gaining points before the end of the Season/calendar year. The top 3 racers under the Speed & Item rankings will be seeded into the final eight. The top two Friday Night Lights racers will also receive positions on each event's fourth slot. This will be determined by their Speed to Item scores, with the higher score being able to seed them into the corresponding tournament.

The open bracket will, however, reward higher-ranked racers by placing them away from each other until the final stages of the GP Finals.


Prizes

Thanks bro ~ You're right on everything you said ;D Never thought it'd be this much fun with just practice karts . I think it has something to do with the fact that the skill gaps are closed by a lot, making everybody close to each other ! Anyway, it's amazing & there's definitely going to be more to come in the near future ~

Man watching that youtube video makes me cry. We should play non-infinite N2O next time, I was drifting way too much where you're not even drifting at all :(

You told me to cut drift, but what you're doing is not cut drifting! You're just tapping the drift key :P

@ Okie: A friend & I tried non-infinite N2O before choosing the mode on which we were gonna be making standard, & it's just grueling man, haha . I actually was against infinite N2O at first too, believing it to be easier than infinite, but it turned out that infinite is just so much easier + less grueling to play & watch .

@ Don: hehe, you'll see this Friday

@ Mandu: Trust me when I tell you, the standard kart for Speed should be practice kart pros . Not only does everybody have access to them + they cannot be enhanced, but the skill gap closes tremendously when you do so. Anything faster & there will be absolute blowouts that will make everything less fun since the game has been out for so long & many of us started at different times.

In general - even though after testing it out practice karts will likely be the standard - there will be tourneys I've already come up with over the coming months that will be played with faster karts. There is still a ton of skill involved & it is much easier to train & become good @ these standards than others where speed raises the skill gap .

If the optimal strategy is to just not drift at all.. that's incredibly boring and kind of defeats the purpose of speed mode, IMO.

I think most people who play now have played for quite awhile. When we played with 9 karts after the tournament ended we were all pretty evenly matched.

Same here, I didn't even know you could get it permanent.

I've never seen you guys play that frequently, but I actually feel like there's still quite a wide range of talent in this forum. Nova is really good, but I'm a noob and never play on S2 and always play S3 or Infinite mode :P

But anyways, Okie, what do you suggest would be the best way? I mean honestly, I'm sure we can all find a time where we can try multiple modes.
