Yeah, I wasn't last! I probably should've stuck around for a couple more races, though, to get enough points to pull ahead of Yabo. She and i were neck and neck in points most of the night.

 

You were her nemesis for the race. At the end of every race it was either, "Yay! I beat Morgil!" or, "Geez, Morgil beat me!" Also, I'm pretty sure you're not invited to her birthday party because of beating her a few times. :)

Lol, i was doing pratically the same thing after every race. When i finally quit for the night, i made sure to wait until after i was ahead of her in points before i signed off.

Dammit... I'll be back in a few weeks. Maybe I'll race from Plant's house in two weeks if he lets me use his Wii U.

 

Fine fine, but if you two play together don't expect me to work hard to insert your score on the weekly scoreboard like I do for Yabo. I only do that for her because she's sleeping with me.

On hindsight, I guess even with lag, I did get some postable races.  Enough to make four videos this time.  The lag that gets me is when I'm trying to do tricks.  Sometimes the trick button on the Pro Controller doesn't trigger when it's supposed to compared to the GamePad (which only acts up once in awhile).  I'll post them soon.

Part 1 of 4.  You can see some awkward jumps off the ramps being one of the examples of lag I encountered using the Pro Controller last Thursday.

When you say it's that kind of lag, then my incredulousness fades (I thought you meant lag like on the analog sticks). That behavior sounds exactly like what I experienced at the Play Nintendo competition in July, where in the final match I could barely drift or use items because the Z buttons weren't responding most of the time. I attributed it to it being a crappy controller that was just used too much in giant events.

 

That said, I've never had that problem at home. I'd say you should just take yours back and get a different one, but that would require a trip to Japan, wouldn't it. :O Have you tried re-syncing, just out of superstition? It's also odd still that you say it happens when you're online but not playing just locally.

The final two parts from last week's tournament:

3 - https://www.youtube....h?v=TmAtklZ03Kw

4 - https://www.youtube....h?v=hr-xDyOSVm8

 

Anyone up for the tournament tonight if it's being held?

 

EDIT - Well if it is still happening, I might run somewhat late this time provided if the local weather doesn't interfere.  I have to wash dishes tonight in my house.  As soon as that's done, I should be free to hop on MK8 afterwards (unless the tournament ends while I'm working or doesn't happen in the first place this week <.<).

Looks like we all forgot or were too busy to play tonight (personally I came home and worked at home until around 9:00. :( ).

 

Anyway, maybe next week. Oh wait, that's Christmas, so it's probably unlikely. We'll start the new year off with a tournament, right? Right?
