Mario Kart 7 Thread
welcome to the BasilMarket Mario Kart 7 thread! here, you can discuss everything about Mario Kart 7 for the 3DS and find new friends to race and battle with. now that Christmas has been and gone, I'm hoping that enough of you have gotten your mitts on a copy of Mario Kart 7 to warrant a discussion thread. if you don't have a copy of the game yet but you do have a 3DS, I strongly recommend getting this game - the fun is almost literally endless, and I can guarantee you'll be playing this one for years (or at least until the release of the next MK title).
we also have a BasilMarket MK7 Community set up! using this feature, you can race against up to 7 other members of the Community without having to add a single friend code. note that you don't accumulate VR while playing in the Community [b]but[/b] you do earn coins towards your total, meaning you can easily unlock karts, wheels and gliders without having to repeatedly grind in the Grand Prix.
* please try to keep discussion of 3DS Friend Codes out of this thread - instead, go [url=http://www.basilmarket.com/forum/2304404]here[/url]and consult the list of Friend Codes or post your own.
the Community code: 59-3349-7461-0737
rules: 150cc, all items
[b]IMPORTANT NOTICE[/b] - please do not make use of the Maka Wuhu/Wuhu Mountain Loop glitch! it's just pointless and doesn't earn you anything but infamy and enmity from other players. for those of you who don't know what the glitch is, [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X12LOUEgecs]this video[/url]demonstrates it pretty clearly. it essentially ruins the track and spoils the fun for everyone involved, so please don't perform the glitch while racing against other members of the Community. if you do happen to spot someone who keeps choosing Maka Wuhu/Wuhu Mountain Loop only to perform the glitch and get an easy win, try to make note of their username (and their Mii if they're using it) so that they can be publicly named and shamed in this thread. I highly recommend that, if a glitch user is spotted, everyone else in the room pelt them non-stop with every item they get until said glitch user is forced to leave the room.
as far as other rules go, please don't spam a track while playing in the Community. it only makes the game much more monotonous and tedious for everyone. if your track gets chosen, try to avoid choosing the same track multiple times in a row.
please also adhere to the rules of BasilMarket in this thread - that means don't go cussing someone out just because they red shelled you into a pit. it is only a game, so please have fun while playing and don't get angry over little things like item hits.
[b]STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE TO JOINING THE COMMUNITY[/b]

- type in the Community code (59-3349-7461-0737)
voil� ! you've joined the BasilMarket MK7 Community. if you're looking for a race but there's no-one else in the room at that moment, just post in this thread and ask if anyone's free! hopefully, someone will be around to come and join you online.
also, please bear in mind that the Community is suitable for all skill levels! not even the best players win every race, and even if you don't think you're very good at the game it'll be great experience for your races in 150cc and mirror modes and you'll have fun at the same time, so please don't feel afraid to join.
here, I will compile a list of all the known BasilMarket MK7 Community players so that you'll always know who it is you're playing against. to have your name added to this list, post your BasilID (using an @ tag - i.e. the "@" character followed by your BasilID) and then your Mii name. if, for whatever reason, you change your Mii's name, please [b]post in this thread[/b] and let me know so that I can amend it for you. [b]do not send me a PM[/b] or else your name won't be added to the list, it's as simple as that.
to summarize, post something along the lines of this:
[quote=example]BasilID @audio, Mii: mark[/quote]
