- July second half - A great Kart event has ended! -
by Chraizy at 11:45 am

Hello guys, it's Chris here with a new update. A great Kart event has ended in Germany exactly a week ago, and with all the MK64 TOP players and some very well known names we had a wonderful time (you know who you are!)! Let's hope for an even bigger event next time. For the upcoming weeks we have a few more EVents in MK64 and SMK, so if you are interested into more streams with some awesome MK action you can pop in there! However, let's see what happened during the last 2 weeks!

New Players

Michael McFadden sent us a full timeset and debuted at #529.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer got the WR at the very last day of July, so his PR streak of every months keeps going! He improved his own FS WR by 0"04 seconds and stands at 2'00"34 (NTSC: 1'40"08), which is incredibly close to the NTSC sub! Keep pushing!

But Daniel Burbank was busy aswell, and also on FS. His own flap is distancing from every else player more and more and more. Another 0"03 cut gives him a lead of 0"14 seconds to #2!! The new WR is 38"34 (NTSC: 31"89)!

And another WR came from William Lacey who showed us the WR on his laptop at the meet, with a completely new shroomstrat on DKJP he was able to cut a whole tenth off his flap and beat Jamie and Matthias here by 0"03 seconds. The new time is a 42"39 (NTSC: 35"25)!!


Non-SC Movement

MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion Matthias Rustemeyer continued his monthly PR streak by improving his own FS 3lap. He lost AF points though due to Williams new WR and is 4 points away from the perfect AF now.
#5 (5) Daniel Burbank had a busy time and set 4 new records on FS flap (new WR), WS dual and YV 3lap. The YV 3lap was actually the only time that cut any AF points. He stands at 5.5 points now, only 0.8 behind the #4 Zoran!
#6 (6) William Lacey had a nice suprise for everyone at the meet and presented us a complete new shroomstrat on DKJP. The flap now uses a shroom at the corner before the bridge, to cut even more grass in the complete lap. He cut 0.06 AF points and maintained his rank.
#31 (30) Marcos Vinicius Alves sent us a MMF 3lap, FS flap and SL dual PR. All of them cut quite a few ranks, which let him pass 4 players. The next player is 2.7 AF points away though, so a similar cut is needed to overcome this gap.
#55 (55) Jake Walter improved his DKJP 3lap and almost reached the GOD barrier here. He is really close to the Legend A promotion aswell, and he cut 0.16 AF points to close the gap to Italian Champ Nicola Torre.
#69 (67) David Moll improved his BB times and got 2 really nice times ranked 70th and 60th. Both times jumped two standards to Legend B and A, and his AF improved by 1.1 points. It was enough to pass 2 persons and secure his TOP70 position for a while.
#95 (97) Frankie Morgan improved SL and BC dual to reach the famous MK64 TOP100! His ARR also jumped to Legend D, which means you almost need the Legend D status now to reach a TOP100 rank :O! However, Frankie was able to cut 7 whole points off his score and passed 4 players! The next few players aren't too far away aswell, so let's see what he is able to do with the next update!
#102 (102) Patrick Blank had an incredible PR streak at the meet and improved 19 PRs in the last half! A lot of them saw improvements of more than 30 ranks, but that's not all, he also reached his first Non-SC GOD time! Patrick also reached the Legend F status and barely missed the TOP100 by passing 12 players for the 102nd rank. Well done!
#103 (103) Naveen Selvam improved his RRy dual and YV 3lap. All of them got good cuts and helped him to cut 0.9 AF points. He passed Lachlan, but got passed by Paddy, so he maintains his rank for now. He is also really close to the TOP100, so a few more AF points will do the trick!
#131 (131) Kyle Begley improved 7 records in the last half. Most of them where small improvements, but KD dual and DK 3lap saw big improvements of over 45 ranks cut on each. He cut 5.4 AF points in total and passed 4 players.
#136 (136) Leif Christian Tode improved 4 records on MR and SL flaps and MR dual. All of them had similar cuts (except SL which was a smaller cut) and helped him to cut 3 AF points. He passed 4 players in the progress and is closing in to the King A standard. Leif got a pretty decent MR flap ranked 66th, close to the PAL sub 28!
#192 (194) Anna Moon improved 4 PRs on RRy dual and BB dual. All of them were quite good cuts, on RRy flap she achieved the Legend D standard. Anna passed 3 players with a 2.8 AF points cut and a similar cut would help her to pass 7 more players!
#356 (365) Mark Vizza improved 20 PRs across all cups. He passed 14 players with a 17 AF points cut and is currently the lowest ranked Master A player. Only a few more standards to go for Elite!
#402 (407) David Noack improved almost his entire timeset with 27 PRs over all cups. He passed 139 players and easily crashed the TOP500, he barely missed the TOP400 with his insane 139 AF points cut! He also went from Expert B and jumped 2 whole standards to Pro B!
#470 (474) Eric Smits improved almost the same amount of PRs, 26 to be exact, and passed 89 players with a big 72 AF points cut. He also jumped a whole standard from Expert C to Semi-Pro C!
#577 (592) Daniel Plaumann improved his YV 3lap and got a new TOP650 time here. He passed one player on the AF charts.
#843 (929) Dev Cheti improved a probably wrong time on RRy flap from over 7 minutes to a sub 1 Minute time.
#846 (932) Joseph Mace improved WS and DK dual and got 2 new TOP800s on WS. He passed 7 players with a decent 4.6 AF points cut.


SC Movement

Only 2 active players, the first was #32 (33) Marcos Vinicius Alves who was able to beat his TT times. The 3lap was his 7th SC GOD, and his 39th in total. He cut 2 whole points and is closing in to Sami and close to leave the AF graveyard.
#88 (81) Daniel Burbank scored 3 new records on TT 3lap and RRd dual. He improved his old RRd 3/3 spiral with a smoother run and better hits at the meeting, and also improved his flap by 0"16 seconds. He cut 0.22 AF points in total and maintained his rank.

That's it guys! Hope to see you at the next meet, and of course at the next news ;)!

- July first half - WGE! -
by Chraizy at 4:36 am

Hey guys, it's Chris! No seriously, it's really me this time :D! First of all, shoutouts to Kyle for helping me with the news, you did a great job mate! Secondly, we have a new Worst God Ever! What is that you may ask? Well, it's the player who reached the GOD rank with the worst AF of all GOD Players. We got a new one this month, and he outplayed Cooper after a veeeeery long while being WGE, to take this (in)famous title into his hands! Let's see what happened.+

New Players

David Romero joined the site with a complete timeset and debuted at #466.
Dev Cheti joined the site with a complete timeset aswell and debuted at #928.
Joseph Mace also sent in a complete timeset and starts the journey at #939.

World Records

Nope.

Non-SC Movement

The highest mover this time was Matth... oh wait he's practising for the Meet to destroy everyone, let's see... ah! Okay okay... there we go. #5 (5) Daniel Burbank is practising aswell, but had time to improve 2 PRs in the meantime aswell. He didn't cut any ranks, but improved his WS 3lap by 0"11 seconds and his BB flap by 0"01 seconds.
The next active player is #6 (6) William Lacey who played WS 3lap aswell without success of improving a rank here. However, he was able to cut 0"27 seconds off of his PR and come closer to the sub 4'22 here!
The first guy who was actually cutting AF was #13 (13) Beck Abney, who is playing like always! RRd it was this time, and he might only have improved 0"03 seconds, but cut 3 ranks with it! His AF subbed the 14 points mark and Greg is only a little more than a point away.
#32 (30) Christian Wild improved after 2 years of abscence (and news updating) 2 PRs on LR 3lap and MMF flap. The 3lap was long overdue as worst time. The cuts were enough to rejoin the TOP30, however the next rank is over 3 AF points away.
Now prepare for the biggest news of this... uh.. news update. #33 (34) Marcos Vinicius Alves made it! He was able to dethrone Cooper Lovera aka Worst God Ever. With Marcos last missing GOD times on KD, FS 3laps and WS dual he was able to not only achieve every GOD time, but also be worse ranked than Cooper was when he finished his GOD quest! Well done Mister Alves! In addition to that, he passed 3 players with his 5 PRs and the next spot and TOP30 is not too far away anymore!
#71 (69) David Moll is getting his hands on MK64 again and improved 2 records: MMF 3lap and BB flap. Banshee was a big exception as Moll said, as he's playing this course only every 8461472362731 days because bats and mansions can be really, REALLY bad. However, he still cut a good amount of AF, 0.5 to be precise, and came closer to the next 2 spots.
#101 (101) Frankie Morgan is back on track and improved his SL times by a good margin! The 3lap is a Legend B time ranked 76th and the flap went down all the way to GOD at 46th! It's one of his best times now beside YV dual and MMF flap.
Only 2 spots above we have #102 (103) Naveen Selvam who improved KD flap and YV 3laps. KD went down 10 ranks and YV 20 ranks, in total he cut 0.9 AF points and almost passed Lachlan, but lost a rank though because Frankie passed him with his SL PRs.
#135 (135) Kyle Begley was busy with the first 2 tracks of MK64, with tricky SSMTs and extremely annoying moles. However, he still managed to beat both of those and improved his LR by 0"11 seconds and his MMF by 0"65, which led to a 50 ranks cut! Kyle passed one player with a nice 2.1 AF points cut and is coming closer to the King A ranks! Not too long until he competes in the Legend area!
#371 (369) Nathan Truchan improved 15 PRs across all cups and was able to cut 29 AF points to pass 29 players! Nathan also left the Pro ranks and is now a Master D player, well done!
#372 (379) Mark Vizza improved 14 PRs also across all cups and made a few nice improvements. His MR flap is getting closer to the King ranks, edging at Elite A right now. Mark passed 13 players and put his AF under 400 points!
#528 (546) David Noack improved 12 PRs and passed 97 players! A few huge cuts were done, his RRd times went from ~700th all the way down to 443rd and 442nd respectively. David also left the Advanced B ranks and passed a whole standard to land in the Expert B area!
#544 (568) Israel Mendoza also improved 14 PRs and passed 78 players with a giant 65 AF points cut. He also made the jump into the Expert B area by almost jumping a whole standard!


SC Movement

Only one active player! The lonely ranger was #5 (5) Beck Abney, who improved his WS flap slightly by 0"01 seconds and didn't even pass anyone! However, his flap totals went down by 0"01 seconds... hehe :D!

That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed it! See you next time, and don't forget the meet next week! (see news above)

- June 2nd half - Brand New Milestones! -
by Chraizy at 8:55 pm

Hey guys, it's Chris... just kidding, he's still not back. So you're stuck with me for another news update. How exciting. Let's see if anyone did anything noteworthy this half.

Oh wait, yes someone did. Beck Abney, in fact, created a brand new milestone this half by sending in the last 4 GOD times on NTSC, becoming the first person to get 108/108 GODs! He achieved this by setting GOD times on every track both NTSC and PAL and in the category Shortcut and Non-Shortcut. Congrats to Beck!

New Players

Our lone joiner this half is David Noack, who sent in a full timeset and debuts at #643.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

We had 1 new World Record this half, and it was set by (big surprise) Matthias Rustemeyer at Sherbet Land 3lap! The new time is an amazing 1'55"65 (NTSC:1'36"18)!

Shortcut

Man of the hour Beck Abney set 2 new NTSC Shortcut World Records this half! The first was Rainbow Road 3lap Shortcut, which beats Karlo's record set 9 years ago. The new time is 3'17"66 (PAL:3'57"67)! The other World Record was set at Kalimari Desert flap. This one was only a tie however, with a 31"64 (PAL:38"04). Way to go Beck!

Non-Shortcut

Mario Kart 64 Time Trial Non-Shortcut Champion Matthias Rustemeyer sent in the lone World Record and maintains his AF since he already held the record.
#3(3) Vincent Tolhuis sent in a PR at Frappe Snowland flap. He cut a few hundredths and moved into 3rd on the chart, reducing his AF by a spot.
#5(5) Daniel Burbank is a beneficiary of more free time, and used it to cut almost .5 AF with 9 new PRs! He now has all TOP10 times, joining the 4 players above him as the only ones with this feat. Great job Dan!
#36(37) Marcos Vinicius Alves set 2 PRs this half at LR flap and WS 3lap. Both were big cuts and helped him shave off almost 1 AF. He moved past 2 players.
#55(55) Jake Walter sent us 4 PRs this half with MR flap, BB 3lap, and RRd dual. He cut over half an AF point, but is in an AF graveyard and stays in the same spot.
#101(102) Naveen Selvam returned from a slight break and sent in 17 new PRs across all cups! He passed 16 players this half, and is super close to the TOP100. He is also the newest Legend F player!
Steady as always, #381(392) Mark Vizza sent us 15 PRs this half. He was able to pass 6 players this half and is close to a rank promotion. If he can balance his timeset out by ranks a bit better, we could see him shoot up the rankings. Keep it up Mark!
Next up is #474(485) Ryan Dunn, who sent us 9 new PRs, mostly in the Mushroom and Flower Cups. They were enough to have him pass 7 players.
#648(675) Tyler Simcoe set 17 new PRs this half. He made HUGE cuts, and passed 36 players en-route to becoming a new Advanced C rank player!
Lastly, #939(963) Adam Farrell-Shaw sent us a dual PR at Koopa Troopa Beach. The cuts were small, and Adam actually lost some position due to activity ahead of him.

Shortcut

The highest active Shortcut player this half was another not so surprising player. #5 Beck Abney may have set tons of PRs this half, but only 1 was a combined PR. Better yet, it was a .01 PR at Toad's Turnpike flap!
Next up was #11 Jake Walter, who set a Choco Mountain 3lap PR. He passed 2 players on the chart, and is moving ever closer to Ben Miller for TOP10!
#33 Marcos Vinicius Alves also sent in a single PR, this one at Luigi Raceway flap. He wound up cutting over a second on the lap, and got a new GOD time! Marcos passed 1 player this half.

Well that's it this half. Congrats again to Beck for 108/108 GODs and being the first person in MK64 history to do so! So if you have any complaints with this news, he's the guy you should PM to complain to. Also, I talked to Chris last week, and he said he should be back to write the next news update. So this seems like it's it for me. I had a blast writing these news updates even when I barely had the time. This last news update is for my fans. And they know who's the best. Til next time.

- June 1st Half - Danky Kang's Jungle Parkway -
by Chraizy at 7:55 pm

Hello karters, it's not Chris again here for another news updates! It feels like it's been a quick 2 weeks, and there are a few surprises this week! Let's get started with...

New Players

I changed my mind. Since no one new joined, we'll start this half with...

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Another World Record at Frappe Snowland, this time on the flap. Daniel Burbank beat his old time by a few hundredths, bringing the new best down to 38"37 (NTSC: 31"91)! His lead now swells to over a tenth of a second, way to go Dan!

Shortcut

Beck Abney just messed around and got a new NTSC record at Luigi Raceway flap! The new time is 21"68 (PAL: 26"07), NTSC ftw!

Non-SC Movement

This weeks highest active player was... #2 (2) Michael Jongerius! Well, sorta... Michael had a pair of Moo Moo Farm PRs sent in that were set a few weeks ago. The former champ moved up a spot in the 3lap, helping him gain a bit of AF.
He might need more to keep the next man at bay, #3 (3) Vincent Tolhuis (told you there would be some surprises)! Other than sending in old MJ PRs, VAJ is back in the game yo, sending in a DKJP flap PR that moves him up a spot. He wasn't able to cut any AF though thanks to...
#5 (5) Daniel Burbank. Daniel sent in 8 PRs, many of which are new TOP10 times. He only has CM flap left until he has a full TOP10 timeset. On top of that, Daniel got full control of 5th place by passing #6 (6) William Lacey in WRL. William did set a Royal Raceway flap PR, moving up a few spots on the chart. His AF didn't change, however, due to activity around him.
Keeping with the surprises theme, #29 (29) Finn Berger sent in a lone PR at Mario Raceway 3lap. The new time moves him up 2 places on the chart. Still waiting on that MR flap GOD Finn...
#38 (38) Marcos Vinicius Alves sent in a single PR as well. But it is a new GOD time at Luigi Raceway as he hit it on the spot. Marcos moved up 17 places on the chart and 1 spot on the AF rankings. He only has 4 more GODs to become overall GOD, will he get it next time?
#55 (55) Jake Walter sent in 6 times, TT & RRd dual, and LR & DKJP 3lap. Jake moved past 2 players and is really close to reaching the next rank. The TOP50 is also within striking distance. Just a thought... ;)
Next up is #123 (124) Josh McCambridge, who sent in 10 PRs. His most impressive was his Frappe Snowland flap that is a new Legend B and ranked 69th! Keep it up!
#158 (159) James Farrell-Shaw set 14 new PRs this time around as he continues his climb up the leaderboard. His Royal Raceway flap is now a Legend A time and ranked 80th!
#305 (309) Justus Gilstrap sent us 10 new PRs across all cups. Many of them were small cuts, but it was enough to pass 3 people on AF and 5 on WRL. He is close to making the TOP300, so keep on playing!
#387 (400) Mark Vizza broke into the TOP400 this week with 18 new PRs. Like Justus, a lot of them were small cuts, but any PR is a good PR! Mark is the newest Pro A player this half.
#481 (495) Ryan Dunn also broke through a barrier this week, and did so in style! He obliterated his entire timeset to move into the TOP500. He also is now a Semi Pro D rank player!
#578 (590) Daniel Plaumann sent us 7 PRs this half. He passed 10 players and is now an Expert D player!
#664 (723) Stephen De Winter sent us just 2 Kalimari Desert PRs. They were HUGE cuts though, and allowed him to pass 13 people in the process. Does Stephen have more to come? We'll have to wait and see...

Shortcut

#5 Beck Abney sent us 2 Shortcut PRs this half. You already heard about the LR flap, but he also set a Frappe Snowland flap for another new TOP5 time! He gains a bit of AF and is slowly coming closer to the Big 4.
#11 Jake Walter sent us a Luigi Raceway 3lap PR. He was finally able to sub 1'20 and passed 2 on the chart. Let's see if he sticks with Shortcuts in the 2nd half.
#214 James Farrell-Shaw sent us 3 PRs here. He passed 7 players is is closing in on the TOP200.
#242 Daniel Plaumann sent in Wario Stadium flap and DKJP 3lap PRs. He passed 1 player on the rankings in the process.
#325 Ryan Dunn sent in a single Rainbow Road flap PR. He cut 3/4 of a second and passed 3 players in the AF rankings.

Well guys, that's it for this half. See you next time when we see if these old veterans decide to continue to play the game! If you have any complaints about the news, send Chris a PM. He'd love to see you guys still care about him. See ya!

- May 2nd half - Scorching hot PRs at freezing cold tracks -
by Chraizy at 9:00 pm

Hey guys, Chris isn't going to be around for the next several weeks, so I'm going to write the next couple of updates! Who is "I" you may be asking? Well, if you stick through the whole news you might find out! Anyways, let's see what's happened in the last 2 weeks!

New Players

Greg Gray sent in a full timeset and debuted #504.
Ryan Dunn also sent in a full timeset and starts his rank at #626. He also sent in 4 SC times to begin his journey there at #328.

World Records

Non-Shortcut
Only 1 new World Record this time around, but it was a hotly contested one (which is ironic, because the track was Frappe Snowland). Both Matthias and Dan set PRs at FS 3lap, but Matthias Rustemeyer broke the tie with his new time of 2'00"39 (NTSC: 1'40"12)! That NTSC sub keeps creeping closer and closer, stay tuned here...

Shortcut
Nothing...

Non-SC Movement

MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion Matthias Rustemeyer stayed at the same AF as his FS 3lap World Record broke a tie. Still 3 WRs to go until the perfect 1.000!
#6 (5) Daniel Burbank may have lost that World Record, but he did set PRs at LR & CM flap, and DKJP dual as well as FS 3lap. Most notably, he cut his LR flap by 0"04, but that moved him up 7 spots on the chart and helped him to move his AF past Lacey and into the TOP5! Next up, Zoran and VAJ...
Trying not to be outdone, #5 (6) William Lacey sent in dual PRs at Sherbet Land, moving up to 4th in the 3lap and 5th in the flap. He cut 0.125 AF points, but it wasn't enough to hold his spot in the AF rankings. Maybe he'll be able to ride the wave that is Dan higher up the rankings.
#23 (26) Michael Arends also spent some time in the cold weather, and got himself a sub 1'56 at Sherbet Land 3lap! Although he doesn't gain any AF points (and actually lost a few due to other activity) 2nd place and the Dutch Record is only a few hundredths away. He also moved up a spot on the WRL and is within a point of a few people on the AF charts.
#38 (39) Marcos Vinicius Alves sent in dual PRs from Toad's Turnpike and Rainbow Road. With 3 new God times, Marcos only has 5 more to chase down! Although he didn't pass anyone, he cut nearly 2 AF points and has a slew of people right in front of him!
#57 (57) Jake Walter sent in dual PRs from Kalimari Desert and Sherbet Land. He cut a solid 1.2 points, and is closing in on 2 more players. He also moved up a spot on the WRL. Keep it up Jake!
#117 (117) Naveen Selvam continues to send in many PRs, 5 to be exact. His most impressive was his Sherbet Land flap, which cut 4 tenths, giving him a both a new Legend D and TOP100 time!
#129 (129) Josh McCambridge sent in 2 PRs from Moo Moo Farm, with his flap being a new TOP100 time. He passed 2 players and is the newest King A player!
#171 (170) James Farrell-Shaw crushed over half his timesheet, sending in 18 PRs! Many of them were only small cuts, but together helps him pass 11 people! He is now a King C player as well.
#201 (199) Lorenzo Houweling improved 14 PRs, mostly in the Star and Special Cups. Most notably, he cut over a second on his SL flap and set a new Legend F time! He passed 13 players on the AF chart and is now a King D player!
Steady as always, #403 (411) Mark Vizza improved in 19 PRs and cut 12 AF points. He passed 12 people and is now in the Pro B ranks.
#557 (558) Drew Harsanyi sent in 7 PRs, and moves past 25 people. He reached the Expert C ranks in the process.
#543 (568) Adam Nitsche sent in a time at almost every course with 31 new PRs! If only he got that DKJP flap... Anyways, he cut over 140 AF points, and moved up 178 spots on the AF chart! He moved into the Expert D ranks as well.

SC Movement

After a short break, #6 (6) Alex Griessing sent in a single Mario Raceway 3lap PR. It would, however, be enough to pass Matthias to give him 8th on the charts there. He has Beck right in front of him if he wants to go for it ;).
A little further back, #220 (221) James Farrell-Shaw sent us 5 PRs. All of them cut a bit of AF, and helped James move past 7 people on the AF chart.

Alright well it looks like that's it for this new update. Maybe next time people will realize its summer and move to warmer weather tracks. If you have any complaints, I hear that shadow likes to deal with those. ;) See you later!

- May first half - jumping off cliffs may be deadly -
by Chraizy at 7:10 am

Hey guys it's Chris! May brought us a few interesting things already in the first half, unfortunately the SC player came pretty short this half. SCs are risky friends!

New Players

We got exactly one joiner this half, and he happens to be the 1000th listed Non-SC player on the site! Lorenzo Houweling joined the site with a complete timeset at a relatively high rank. He debuted at #212.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank set a new WR on FS 3lap, which is 0"01 faster than Matthias' time, but converted they are still tied in NTSC. However, Dan improved FS 3lap to a 2'00"44 (NTSC: 1'40"17)!

Shortcut

No new WRs...

Non-SC Movement

The highest active player was #6 (6) Daniel Burbank, who improved his FS 3lap and also KTB flap by 0"02 seconds. He passed one player on each chart and cut 0.06 AF points. Dan is so close to William and the TOP5 spot, only 3 rank improvements are missing!
#13 (13) Beck Abney improved a mass of 11 PRs this half! With a lot of nice improvements, and a few TOP20 improvements Beck improved 0.9 points and is only 1.25 points away from Greg! The next few spots will be tough to reach, but Beck seems to be unstoppable when it comes to PRing. Keep it up!
#39 (39) Marcos Vinicius Alves played Choco Mountain and was able to improve both times into the TOP40. But not only this, he also reached both GOD times in the progress! He lowered his ARR to Legend + and doesn't need many more GOD times to be the next overall GOD. Marcos didn't pass anyone, but cut 1.6 AF points with those 2 PRs alone.
#58 (57) Jake Walter improved 6 PRs. The cuts weren't too big, but he still passed Nathan and Richard for the 57th spot with a 0.7 cut. He also reached his 10th GOD time on YV flap.
#124 (124) Naveen Selvam improved 11 records and passed 9 players with a 12 AF points cut. He got 5 new Legend times and improved his ARR to the King A status! Well done!
#130 (131) Josh McCambridge improved 17 records and got a lot of big cuts! He reached the TOP100 on FS flap and improved 5 King times into the Legend ranks. Josh passed 18 players with a 16.3 AF point cut and is not too far away from the next spot and rank promotion.
#141 (140) Leif Christian Tode improved 6 records to get a 3 AF points cut and pass 4 players. He mainly got flap PRs and also reached 2 new Legend times.
#182 (181) James Farrell-Shaw reached 18 new records, a lot of new TOP200 times and even a few new 150s. He achieved a new Legend time on KD flap and erased a few remaining Elite times, James has easily reached the TOP200 by passing 20 players with his big 16 AF points cut.
#413 (423) Mark Vizza improved 11 PRs and passed 11 players with a 8 AF points cut. He also reached the Pro D ranks in the progress.
#546 (561) Collin Nieuwold got a few big cuts and cut 17% of his AF with his enormous 121 AF points cut. He passed 155 players and easily reached the TOP600! His ARR went from Advanced F to Expert B!
#583 (583) Drew Harsanyi improved 6 PRs across all cups and got a 9 AF points cut. Drew passed 12 players and reached the Expert D ranks.

World Records


Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank was the only Non-SC WR setter for this half! He landed his 3rd current, and 4th seperate overall WR with the new MR 3lap. It was a tie with Matthias time from January last year. Dan hit a superb sub and is only the third to do so, at 1'27"96 (NTSC:1'13"15)!

Shortcut

Greg Ihnatenko is reporting back! With a long term goal of himself and a lot of hard work he was able to beat the time on his cartridge by a good amount and at the same time also hit a new WR! Greg bested VAJs old time to a 1'59"63 (NTSC: 1'39"49)!!
But Beck Abney was also on fire. With 2 new WRs he hit the most WRs in this update. The first one came on CM flap, where the already really strong Weathertenko time was improved again. The new time is a 3"16 (PAL: 3"80) and made the NTSC WR the overall WR again!
The same happened with KD, where he not only got a new WR, but also transferred it back to NTSC like CM. The new time is a 1'42"37 (PAL: 2'03"09)!!

Non-SC Movement

The highest active mover was #6 (6) Daniel Burbank who improved 3 PRs. A 0"3 MMF 3lap cut was reached, which sadly only cut one spot, but still is another sub 1'27 here! Apart from that he also reached a new KTB 3lap, which also reached the sub 1'36. Dan is only 0.15 points away from Lacey and the TOP5, from there it'll be tough to get any further...
#13 (13) Beck Abney improved his MR flap by 0"01 seconds and reached the 13th spot here. He still needs to cut like 2.3 points to reach Greg for the 12th rank, but he will definitely get there!
#24 (26) Michael Arends improved his BB flap another time and reached the 22nd spot here. He cut 0.15 points and is closing the gap to Cooper.
#40 (39) Marcos Vinicius Alves was playing some BC 3lap and got a new TOP40 time + his 22nd Non-SC GOD. Only 10 GODs left, and one of the hardest is already eliminated, will he get there?
#47 (46) Andreas Rudmarker reported 2 PRs after a litte break from MK64. He got 2 new records on KTB 3lap and YV flap. The KTB 3lap was a new GOD time, the YV flap was a new TOP50. Andreas is really close to pass Jason Whalls for the 45th spot.
#58 (59) Jake Walter reached 5 new times on 4 different tracks. The PRs weren't too big, except for WS flap where he passed 23 players. Jake made a 1.5 AF point cut and is closing in to Nathan and Richard in the AF lists. He is also close to the next rank promotion.
#72 (72) Mark Jones hit 3 new records on KD, RRy and YV flaps.KD and RRy were new GOD times, YV is now a Legend B time. Mark cut 1.8 points and is only 0.3 away from the next spot. He is also really close to the Legend B ranks, only a bit is missing!
#96 (97) Patrick Loseth hit 7 new records, with a new double TOP100 on KTB and 3 new Legend times! Patrick passed 3 people to enter the double digit ranks at 97th with a nice 5.7 AF point cut. Well done!
#132 (133) Naveen Selvam sent us 12 new PRs mainly on the Flower and Star Cup Tracks. He improved his already strong MR flap, but also brought his other weaker PRs to a higher standard. Naveen passed 15 players with a nice 12.4 AF point cut.
#135 (135) Kyle Begley improved his BC flap by almost 3 tenths and barely missed the Legend standard here. Kyle passed a player, but got passed aswell, so no rank change for him.
#143 (144) Leif Christian Tode sent us 23 new times, eliminating 3 Elite times and getting 2 new Legend times. Leif cut 13% of his AF this half, with a 25 AF point cut! He passed 27 players to reach the TOP150 with style.
#147 (149) Josh McCambridge got 16 new records across all cups, which resulted into a 16 AF point cut and passing 18 players to reach the TOP150. Josh also reached the King B ranks in the progress, congratz!
#194 (196) Anna Moon improved her RRy flap by another 3 hundreths and passed 4 players in the chart.
#199 (201) James Farrell-Shaw is slowly approaching the TOP200 with more nice PRs. He reached a Legend time on RRy flap and hit many more King times. He passed 6 players and cut 12 AF points.
#231 (233) Cole Horan improved 7 records, eliminating one Master time from his timeset. He passed 6 players with a 7.8 points cut, but is facing a few bigger AF gaps from now.
#423 (434) Mark Vizza played some more this half and improved 14 PRs. A few new Pro times have been reached and helped him to reach the Pro D standards! He also passed 7 players with a 10 AF points cut.
#621 (640) Israel Mendoza got 6 new records on LR, KTB, KD and SL, most of them were big improvements, and also a new Pro time was reached. He cut 28 AF points and passed 41 players to reach the TOP650.


SC Movement

Highest SC mover #2 (2) Greg Ihnatenko was able to hit the RRy 3lap SC WR and improved one rank here. He still got like double the AF of Vincent, but it is unlikely that he will lose the #1 spot in the next few months, if even years anyway.
#5 (5) Beck Abney is still on fire in SC and improved 2 WRs of himself and also set a new MR 3lap. He cut 0.15 points and is slooowly closing in to Karlo.
#13 (13) Matthias Rustemeyer hit his first ever Mylestyle SC on LR flap, which brought him an enormous cut in the AF charts! But also a new KD 3lap was done, which is a new Legend time for him and also a TOP15. Matthias passed Daniel on the charts for Germanys #2 spot.
#275 (255) James Farrell-Shaw sent us 4 new times and improved his RRd times. He passed 105 players with a 23 AF points cut.

That's it for now. Hope you enjoyed it ;)

Vincent Kwiecien sent us LR and MMF dual times to begin on our site. He is ranked #985.


World Records

No new World Records...


Non-SC Movement

The highest active mover this half was #6 (6) Daniel Burbank. He was able to improve his MR 3lap by a bit. His BB 3lap also saw a small cut and gained him a rank, which makes it his 9th TOP5 time!
#29 (28) Finn Berger had a go at MR this half and presented us a double PR. His 3lap went down by over a tenth, giving him a 4 spot jump. The flap came closer to the GOD time, only 0"04 left to hit this! Finn cut 0.15 AF points to pass Tuomas for the 28th spot.
#40 (39) Marcos Vinicius Alves hit 3 new GOD times on RRy 3lap and BB dual. He also got a really strong 30th ranked RRy flap. Marcos passed no player, even though he made a 1.3 cut. He's in an AF graveyard currently, and 4 points are left to reach the next spot. Tough, but doable!
#61 (59) Jake Walter scored 2 new GODs on 2 Mushroom Cup 3laps: MMF and KTB. He also improved his KTB flap by 0"07 seconds and got a Legend B 3lap on CM which hit the TOP60. All in all he cut 2 AF points to pass 3 players and to reach the TOP60 with style, congratz!
#97 (97) Sean Sullivan improved his Sherbet Land times and both came close to the TOP100. He cut 0.6 AF points and maintained his position.
#104 (101) Lachlan Young improved his KTB 3lap and RRd flap. Both saw similar cuts and are new Legend times for him. He cut 0.3 AF points and is 3.3 points away from the TOP100. Keep going!
#135 (135) Kyle Begley improved his dual TT times and went for the MR and SL flaps. He cut a decent amount of time from his MR time and almost reached the TOP100 and a Legend F time here! He passed 7 players with a 3.8 AF points cut.
#150 (148) Naveen Selvam scored 8 new records this half, two of them are TOP100 times on MR. His KTB times saw big improvements from out of TOP200 to almost TOP100 and gave him a significant cut. All in all he improved 10.5 AF points and passed 11 players to reach the TOP150.
#162 (167) Josh McCambridge improved 8 of his PRs aswell, but with a smaller AF cut of 7.3 points. He has passed 9 players, including #165 (168) Anastasia Steingold, who is making smaller cuts, but more consistent ones, ranking wise. Stacy passed one player and eliminated 2 non TOP200 times on MMF 3lap and TT flap.
#170 (171) Leif Christian Tode improved 28 records, which included many new TOP200 times and big cuts. He passed 47 players with a huge 55 AF points cut! He also got 3 Legend times, which are his first Legends so far, well done!
#206 (207) James Farrell-Shaw continues his streak of consistent PRing and got another great week with 30 records, many new Elite and especially King times and his first Legend time on YV flap! James passed 37 people with an awesome 46 AF point cut and also reached the King F ranks in the progress!
#235 (239) Cole Horan got 18 new records, all of them cut similar AF points and gave him a total of 13.5 AF points to pass 14 players. He also reached Elite A in the ARR ranks in the progress!
#436 (441) Mark Vizza got 15 new records, of which one is a Master B time and the other one is even ranked Elite on MR flap! Mark passed 15 players with his 14.2 AF points cut.
#505 (512) Dan McMullan got 4 PRs on WS and BB dual which are all new TOP600s, except for WS flap which was ranked 598th. He passed 14 players and reached the Semi Pro D ranks.


SC Movement

#5 (5) Beck Abney moved to RRy this half to get another TOP5 time here with a 0"2 cut. He also improved his RRd flap, which is a new TOP5 aswell and cuts 4 ranks. Beck cut 0.28 AF points and maintains his rank.
I almost thought Beck was the only active SC player this half, but he got some warriors with him, #298 (340) Dan McMullan improved his WS SC times and passed 2 players with it.
#349 (361) James Farrell Shaw got a nice RRd flap PR and passed 43 players here to reach the TOP200. He passed 9 players in the progress.

That's it. Jojn me again next time!

- March 2nd half - a lot of activity. USA is going strong! -
by Chraizy at 1:44 pm

Hey guys, it's Chris with yet another episode of MK64 news. Todays episode shows a lot of activity at the TOP, new rising stars, WRs and much more!
We had 20 active players this week. Kinda less than normally, probably everyone was preparing for easter... however, let's see what happened!


New Players

Valentin Vilas Boas sent us a complete timeset and joins at #323. SC: #166.
David Moreno joined the SC side of MK64 with 2 YV times at #448.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer was able to hit another WR this half. He was able to push the DK flap a bit further and tied Jamies incredible NTSC and overall WR with a 42"41 (NTSC: 35"27) lap!
But Matthias also lost a WR, as Daniel Burbank just went full rage on MR. He had many 27"71 ties, but in the end finally got the run: a sub 27"7 PAL lap, with a time of 27"68 (NTSC: 23"02)!! As this lap is already insanely strong, this is one of the most impressive improvements by another player than Matthias! Congratz!

Shortcut

Beck Abney was the spectacle of the SC WRs side. With 2 new World Records he catapulted himself to the 2nd spot in the SC WR tally, 4 WRs seperating him and VAJ with 9 WRs. He first improved the CM lap further and was able to get a 3"88 (NTSC: 3"23)!!
The next one is a really strong one. a 3/3 spiral hit and getting the insane good driving to beat this is really tricky. Beck was able to get it and improved VAJs old WR by 0"16 to a 3'56"36 (NTSC: 3"16"57)!!

Non-SC Movement

MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion Matthias Rustemeyer hit the DK flap WR, but also lost his MR Record (you know? MR Record?! Ok, I know that was a bad pun...) and stayed at the same AF. He still is only 3 AF points away from the perfect 1. Let's see if the A1A is able to keep it up.
#6 (6) Daniel Burbank however didn't suffer a loss of a WR and improved his AF sliiiightly by 0.03 points. He's not too far away from William tho and a few more WRs... or PRs could help to reach him!
#13 (13) Beck Abney also had a one time improvement this half, not as much as usual, but he played MMF, the most time and nerve consuming course in the game! He was able to cut 0"02 seconds off his flap PR and jumped to #7 in the flap charts!
#25 (26) Michael Arends also only improved 1 record, named BB flap. With the actual tie of the GOD standard he started the journey, and ended up 25 spots higher in the charts with a 41"30 lap at 28th! Sounds like a successful session, right? In the progress he also passed Zwartjes to come closer to the Worst GOD Ever! (and the TOP25 of course)
#40 (39) Marcos Vinicius Alves scored 8 new records and 3 new GOD times. His times ranged from 49th to 30th, but... wait! Is this the MR flap GOD?! Holy cow, he even beat it by 0"03 seconds! This is quite an achievment, as it ranks him at the 13th spot and makes it his highest ranked time! Well played.
#62 (62) Jake Walter improved his MMF and MR 3laps and both came really close to the TOP50. The MMF 3lap also came really close to the GOD standard. In ARR he is close to the Legend A standard, and in AF, he's really close to the TOP60! So many unfinished goals, easily reachable with a few more PRs. Push it!
#98 (97) Sean Sullivan PRd for the first time in 2 years on SL and was able to hit a new SL 3lap time. The time bumped him 22 ranks up on the chart and helped him to improve 0.6 AF points.
#115 (113) Patrick Blank got 4 new records, a nice dual MMF, a BC 3lap and a YV flap, which is also a new Legend time for Patrick, were reached.
#141 (142) Kyle Begley improved 4 records, 2 tiny improvements on MR and BC flaps, but quite big ones at FS and WS flaps. Kyle passed 2 players and cut 1.8 AF points.
#146 (149) Lewis Richards, the injured karter who still keeps karting even after a brutal crash, was able to hit 3 new records. His MMF 3lap looks a lot better after improving over 100 ranks here. It is a new King time for him aswell. Lewis also improved SL dual which saw smaller, but also notable cuts. All in all he passed 6 players to finally reach the TOP150. Congratz!
#157 (159) Naveen Selvam improved 20 records this half and scored 2 new Legends on RRy and KD flaps. His MR times look really good, the 3lap is even a TOP75 time and ranked Legend A! Very close to the GOD standard, and a few more hours investing into this course could bring him to the GOD!
#168 (169) Anastasia Steingold decided to visit Yoshi Valley for a nice ride and scored 2 PRs meanwhile. Stacy improved the 3lap into the TOP150, the flap into the TOP190, the flap a bit under her normal standard, but that could change with a bit dedication. Go for it!
#193 (195) Anna Moon scored a little PR on RRy 3lap and was able to push it into the TOP200. Anna didn't cut any AF due to the activity above and below, but hey! A PR is a PR, right? :)
#215 (218) Leif Christian Tode scored 17 new records across all the cups. Especially his BC times saw immense cuts. But the other ones also helped him to cut almost 50 AF points! He passed 49 players in the progress, meaning he reached the TOP250 with ease. Congratz!
#242 (244) James Farrel-Shaw improved almost his entire timeset except for MR flap and made immense cuts on all tracks. He scored 9 King times and made a few nice improvements from the Expert ranks up to Elite. He passed 209 players and easily surpassed the Master and Pro standards! He made an insane 209 AF points cut and is now ranked Elite B!
#251 (253) Cole Horan got not as many, but still 18 new records. He focused more on 3laps, but also got a few nice flap improvements. He passed 19 players with a big 13 AF points cut. He also came really close to the Elite A standard, not much left to get there!
#293 (300) Jed Grabman improved 11 times and passed 7 players to reach the TOP300. He got 3 new Elite times and also a TOP200 time on YV 3lap, his strongest time so far.
#446 (456) Mark Vizza got 14 new PRs this half and passed 7 players with a 9.1 AF points improvement. He is really close to the TOP450, he has to face a big 6 AF point graveyard though.
#621 (656) Ben Stoneman got 11 new records and passed 26 players in the progress. He started the half at Advanced D and "advanced" to Advanced B within the last 2 weeks! (Man...I am really bad at this pun thing) Ben is close to the TOP650, so a few more PRs should do it! Keep it up!


SC Movement

MK64s rising star #5 (5) Beck Abney is getting better and better. With a WR improvement, a new WR and a new YV 3lap he was able to cut 0.1 AF points and reduce the gap to #4 Karlo to exactly 3 AF points. He will probably make bigger cuts again, as he focused a lot at RRd 3lap, in the end it was worth it!
#6 (6) Alex Griessing had a shot at the RRy flap and improved it by 0"09 seconds. No AF cuts were made though, so he stays at the same position.
# (133) Jed Grabman improves his 2 RRy SC times and was able to pass 2 players in the progress.
# (138) Naveen Selvam sent us improvements for his WS times and made nice cuts here to a nice sub 10 lap and a close to PAL sub 1 minute. Naveen passed 12 players and secured his TOP150 spot.
# (370) James Farrell-Shaw got a new MR flap and moved 5 places up in the AF ladder.

That's it! I wish all of you (at least the ones of you who celebrate it) a nice easter weekend!
