- November first half - And everyone was like WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA -
by Chraizy at 12:44 pm

Hi guys it's Chris! Back from a very stressing MK weekend, and here to provide you the newest news! Let's go:

New Players

Daniel Lunczer is back! Well, not a new player, but he decided to put his times back to the site, under his real name. He is starting at #11 again, with a slightly lower AF as he got a few PRs in his abscence.
Darius Austin is joining SC, as he hit the weathertenko and thought: hey! That's a free national record, right? :D No, jokes aside, he hit the number 5 time on the flap, which let's him debute at #406.
Josh Randall is a SC only joiner aswell, with 2 KD times he debuted at #506.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer Was active here, with the first ever sub on LR 3lap! The PAL sub, which he wanted to reach for so long, which was so much talked about, can it be reached? Yes, it can. Matthias took it at the smallest possible margin and the new WR stands now at 1'57"99 (NTSC: 1'38"13)!!
The next WR happened on FS, where Daniel Burbank hit his very first 3lap WR, on the same track where he got his first ever WR. it's Frappe Snowland, he improved Matthias old time by a small margin, and reached a 2'00"55 (NTSC: 1'40"26). However, Matthias decided at the very same day to play this track aswell, and unfortunately to Dan he was able to get it back: Matthias improved it by 0"06 more and stands now at 2'00"49 (NTSC: 1'40"21)!!

Shortcut

A huge collection of new WRs happened, due to the new Weathertenko SC. I won't list all the WR holders that held it (there weren't that many actually), but if you are interested in how many times it has been hit, you can check the MK64 Forum section.

People who hit the Weathertenko: Vincent, Darius, Marcos, Beck and Pat.

The 3lap WR holder is Beck Abney, who got the hang of the weathertenko as first of all. Now he dominates the 3laps with a time of 52"54 (PAL: 1'03"17)!
The flap WR holder on CM is Vincent aka VAJ, and man, you can believe me when I say he was like WAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!! Vincent just destroyed the old flap WR here with a lap 2 hit, the only one so far. The time is a 3"26 (PAL: 3"92)!

Non-SC Movement

MK64 World Champ Matthias Rustemeyer improved LR and FS 3laps. Both led him to new WRs, but not an AF cut, so he remains at the same AF.
#12 (12) Daniel Burbank improved 7 PRs all over the cups, with really nice cuts overall. His biggest success was with no doubt FS, but also his LR times went well down. He cut almost an entire AF point and is even closer to Greg and the #11 spot!
#27 (27) Beck Abney improved 30 PRs! That's almost the complete timeset, with a few really nice cuts, which leads him to a total AF cut of 7.8 AF points! That's a 20% cut of his previous AF! Beck got 4 new GOD times, which gives him a total of 27/32 non-SC GODs! Beck passed 9 players, and his best times of the update were his DK times, ranked 14th and 9th! It's his first TOP10 in non-SC, and not everyone could say that he got his first TOP10 on such a hard course!
#41 (42) Michael Arends is ruling tracks again, cutting over a second off of his KD 3lap, and a smaller cut on the flap. His 3lap is a #7 time, which is his highest ranked time so far! Michael passed 2 players with a nice 1.1 AF cut.
#65 (63) Darius Austin got 2 RRy PRs and also a new GOD time on the flap, which is his 11th GOD time. He passed 1 player with a 1.7 AF point cut. The TOP60 is not too far away, a similar cut next half could get him there!
#77 (77) David Moll played some KB and RRy this half, resulting in 3 PRs. His KB flap is a new GOD time, which is his 5th in total now. David also got a sub 2'56 3lap on RRy, which is ranked 82nd. He passed 2 players with a 1.5 AF point cut.
#104 (102) Lachlan Young improved both KD PRs, with the 3lap ranked at 122nd and the flap being a new TOP100 at 95th. Lachlan passed 3 players with a nice 2.5 AF cut. The flap is also a new Legend time. He is
not too far from the TOP100 now, only a bit more!
#119 (119) Christopher Zartler got 5 new records on LR, KD and MR 3laps and CM dual. All of the times are close to the TOP100, the CM 3lap is a new TOP100 time and also a Legend. Chris passed 4 players with a 3.8 AF cut, and is also close to the Legend ranks. Keep it up!
#175 (176) Kyle Begley got 2 little PRs on SL 3lap and YV flap. He cut 0.06 AF points, but didn't pass anyone.
#228 (231) Thomas Bundschuh got a complete new timeset, with many strong TOP300 times, even a few TOP200s! Thomas passed 117 players with an enormous cut of 112 AF points!! He also jumped from Elite F to Elite A, and is very close to the King standards! Thomas is on a good way to the TOP200, but if he can recreate what he did this time he will probably fly well into it!
#255 (259) Anastasia Steingold improved 9 PRs on MMF, WS and RRy dual, on BC and DK 3laps and YV flap. All of them are close to TOP200 and TOP200 times. She's improving well with another King time on WS flap and also earned a few new Elite times. She passed 15 players with a very nice 17 AF points cut!
#273 (276) Brandon Knodel improved 5 records and made a 2 AF points cut, but got passed by 2 players above, so he lost a rank. Brandon is still going strong with a few TOP300 time and many close to TOP300 times.
#276 (279) Lewis Richards got 6 PRs, eliminating 3 Master times and he also gained a new King time on MMF flap! He passed 3 players with a 4.7 AF points cut.
#283 (285) Naveen Selvam improved 16 records, and got many new Elite times, and even got rid of a Semo Pro A time! He passed 25 players with a big 24 AF points cut and also reached the Elite C ranks!
#296 (299) Anna Moon played some BC 3lap and maintained her current rank.
#366 (368) Tyler Chambers played 3 tracks and got 4 PRs, which resulted in a 1.8 AF cut. He passed 5 players and is close to the Master C ranks. Tyler got a nice BC flap, ranked 269th!
#824 (526) Jayden Ly played some BC 3lap and improved it from 554th to 340th! It helped him to pass 2 players.
#633 (674) Daniel Samspon improved 6 PRs and passed 8 players with a 8.5 AF point cut. Most notable PR was his LR flap, which is ranked well in the TOP600 area.
#637 (681) Mark Vizza improved 21 PRs, all of them by a pretty good margin. He cut 14 AF points and passed 17 players. His ARR also improved to Advanced D!
#972 (972) Alysia Tolhuis was able to finish another track, and also got a new double PR for MMF! For such a young member those times are really impressive!


SC Movement

MK64 SC and Universal Time Trial Champ Vincent Tolhuis improved both of his CM times and cut 0.05 AF points. He also reached the CM flap WR, see the WR section for more information.
#10 (10) Beck Abney got 6 new records, in Flower and Special Cup. Beck cut 0.9 AF points and came closer to #9 Ben Miller.
#24 (25) Pat Bertovich improved his 2 CM times aswell and reached a new GOD with the help of the Weathertenko on the CM 3lap. Pat cut 0.7 AF points and is only 1.5 AF points away from Noah Gordon.
#34 (34) Marcos Vinicius Alves also got 2 CM PRs and also added KD times to his timeset with his first KD hit. The CM flap hit brought him a good AF cut, all in all he cut 4.6 AF points and passed 4 players!

That's it for now guys. Join me again next time!

- October 2nd half - SMK, MK64 and MKDD are still providing WRs. Classic Karts are the best! -
by Chraizy at 9:08 am

hey guys! It's Chris. I am a bit late, but I saw an opportunity for a WR in SMK, so I spend a bit time there, forgot a bit about the update... :D but now! I will present you the newest news of the 2nd half of October! Spooky PRs, even more spooky WRs, and 2 new female players! Seems MK64 is getting more famous with the girls eh..? Hehe, well, let's see what happened:

New Players

Anastasia Steingold joined our site with 32 times. She joined with a pretty high standard, Elite C, at #274. You don't see that all days. Stacy told us that she plays MK64 already a while, but finally decided to join the site.
Alysia Tolhuis joined the site at #972 with 2 times on the first 2 3laps, namely LR and MMF. She will probably become much better, I mean, with a teacher like VAJ... you can only become good, right? :)
Mark Vizza decided to join the SC side of the site. With 8 PRs he popped into the charts at #355!

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer is back in business! He tried his hands on LR, and sadly barely missed the sub with an improvement of his own WR by 0"02. The new WR is 1'58"00 (NTSC: 1'38"14)!!
But also Daniel Burbank was active, hitting the PAL WR on FS 3lap aswell this half! He tied Matthias here with a 2'00"70 (NTSC: 1'40"38)!!

Shortcut

An unexpected SC WR from a Brazilian player. No, it's not Karlo, it's not Marcelo. It's Marcos Vinicius Alves! He improved his FS SC flap and tied Myles' recent WR with a 4"89 (PAL: 5"88)!! Well done on your first WR :)

Non-SC Movement

The highest active player this half was Time Trial World Champ Matthias Rustemeyer. He improved his own LR WR (see World Records section) and maintained his AF.
#11 (12) Daniel Burbank improved 4 PRs this half, namely KB flap, KD dual and FS 3lap. The flaps are new TOP10s, and his KD is sharp aswell, sitting at #13. Daniel cut 0.4 AF points to come closer to the other Dan, who luckily showed us a sign of life yesterday! Daniel Burbank is not very far from the TOP10, and with his WR he also has a slight advantage on the WRL.
#36 (36) Beck Abney improved 3 PRs on KD 3lap and TT dual. His TT times are 2 new GODs, which gives him a total of 23 NON-SC GODs. Beck passed one player with a nice 1.6 AF point cut.
Not far behind we have #42 (44) Michael Arends, who improved KTB and KD dual. All 4 times are new GOD times, and all of them except for the flap are new TOP50s! Michael has a total of 22 Non-SC GODs now, only 5 dual GODs are missing. One of them are the MMF GODs, which should be easily in his reach! Michael also reached the Legend A ARR rank, and also reached the TOP50 this half! That's a lot of achievments with only 4 PRs!
#79 (79) David Moll improved his FS flap by ~0"15 seconds and passed 14 players on the chart. He cut 0.3 AF points and is closing in to the next spot.
#122 (123) Christopher Zartler got 17 new PRs, 4 of them are new Legend times. Chris got many close to TOP100 times, and also a TOP100 time on MMF flap, which is ranked 93rd! He passed 13 players with a 15 AF point cut and also reached King A in the progress, well done!
#175 (176) Kyle Begley improved 3 PRs on WS dual and SL flap. The WS times are new TOP200s and SL barely missed the TOP200 spot. Kyle passed 5 players with a 2.4 AF points cut, and is very close to the next 2 spots. After that he will face a little AF graveyerd though.
#297 (230) Tim van Ham sent us 14 missing times, ranked between 120th - 298th. He almost completed his timeset, only missing the SL times. Tim made a huge jump from #525 to #230, passing 295 players! He also jumped from Expert F right to Elite B! His potential lies a lot higher though; if he sends the missing SL times he will probably be ranked as high King.
#271 (275) Brandon Knodel improved 25 PRs and made a really nice cut of 41 ranks with a 40 AF points cut. Brandon hit many new Elite times, which helped him to improve his ARR from Elite F to Elite C!
#278 (282) Lewis Richards improved 6 PRs and passed 8 players with a 6.7 AF point cut. The cuts weren't too big, but he is getting more and more Elite times!
#295 (298) Anna Moon improved both MMF times into the TOP300 and even got a #222 ranked flap! It's a King D time and her second Non-SC King. Anna cut 1.7 AF points, but didn't pass anyone due to the activity and new players.
#307 (310) Naveen Selvam got 4 new records on LR and MR dual. His LR saw a small cut on both 3lap and flap, while his MR times got a massive boost into the King D area, and low TOP200. The 3lap is even a TOP200 time. All of them helped him to cut 5.2 AF points and pass 4 players.
#342 (348) Thomas Bundschuh played this half and scored 19 new records, He finally decided to use all 3 shrooms on the flap tries and made immense cuts! He passed 70 players with a huge 73 AF point cut. He also jumped from Pro D to Elite F!
#647 (704) Marc Vizza passed 55 players this half with a 46 AF points cut. he scored many new TOP700s and is now the newest Advanced F player!
#905 (852) Brett Nowotny sent us 9 times for his timeset and improved his BB flap. Most of his times are ranked around 750th, but his BB times are a lot better, ranked 525th for the 3lap and 340th for the flap! Brett passed 86 players and easily reached the TOP900!


SC Movement

The highest active player was #16 (17) Matthias Rustemeyer again. Matthias improved his MR flap to the 8th rank and is now equal to his 3lap. Only 0"03 seperate him from Daniels german record. Will he go for it?
#38 (38) Marcos Vinicius Alves improved 3 PRs, including his new FS flap WR tie. Marcos passed 4 players with a 3.9 AF points cut and easily joined the SC TOP40! Well done!
#124 (129) Anthony Caiulo played some MR flap and improved his flap by a bit to pass 19 players on the chart. He passed 1 player with a 0.7 AF point cut.
#142 (154) Lewis Richards landed the KD SC for the first time, with a style that nobody has seen before! You can check the video in the forum (it's not a faster strat, but it looks really awesome!). He also improved his TT flap, all in all he cut 0.8 Af points and passed William Lacey.

Well that's it for this time! Join me again next time :)

- October 1st half - Old Legends -
by Chraizy at 8:20 am

Hey guys, it's Chris! Again, sorry for the delay, I was at my gradparents' golden marriage, so I got not too much time this weekend (at least at the PC). However, I found some time now and we will see what happened during the last 2 weeks!

New Players

Thomas Bundschuh joined our site with a complete timeset at #418.
Steffen Hagelskjaer sent us 4 times on TT and CM dual, with pretty impressive TT ranks at #125 and #134. His debuting rank is #842. SC: #243.
Brett Nowotny joined our site with only one time on BB flap, which is ranked 405th. His debuting rank in the AF ranks is #938.


World Records

Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank went for the sub in PAL aswell, and here he goes: a 38"47 (NTSC: 31"99) flap on FS flap!!

Non-SC Movement

The highest active player was... #2 (2) Michael Jongerius! He came back to send us 2 new MMF PRs, which cut not too much, but the flap went a rank down and is now a bit safer again to not fall outside the TOP10. Michael didn't cut any AF though due to the other active players.
#7 (8) Thomas Jordet Larsen was the other surprising comeback to the site. Thomas sent us 2 new LR times, the 3lap saw a big cut of 0"15 seconds, which helped him to pass 6 players and reach a new TOP10. The flap went down by two hundreths and tied him with an old rival. Thomas cut 0.24 points, but didn't came significantly close to Karlo in the AF ranks.
#12 (12) Daniel Burbank got 5 new records on LR, TT, FS 3lap and RRy dual. He got 3 new TOP20s and is coming closer to the #11 spot with a 0.6 AF cut.
#52 (49) Stefan Kok improved his MR 3lap by one tenth and passed 5 players on the chart. He didn't cut much AF but enough to stay in front of #49 (52) Michael Arends for now. Michael showed us again what dedication can bring. He skilled his way up to the double GOD on LR. Notable is the jump fron King A to GOD on the 3lap, which is definitely no easy GOD! Michael cut 4 points with those 2 PRs and passed 2 players, closing in to the TOP50.
#79 (79) David Moll got 5 PRs this half and got a new GOD on SL flap! It's his 4th GOD now and also a new TOP60. David passed one player with a 2.4 AF point cut. TOP75 is only 3 AF points away, so a few more PRs could help him to reach it!
#179 (181) Kyle Begley got 4 new records on KTB, CM and SL 3laps and YV flap. All of them are ranked around 190th except YV, which is 141st. Kyle cut 3.8 AF points and passed 7 players with it.
#285 (290) Lewis Richards got 5 new records and passed 4 players with a healthy 5.9 AF points cut. Notable record was his RRy flap, which went almost sub 49 and is a new TOP300 for him.
#299 (300) Justus Gilstrap improved his entire timeset and reached many Elite, even King times! Justus got an enormous 87 AF points cut to pass 90 players and perfectly reach the TOP300!
#311 (314) Naveen Selvam improved 10 PRs and passed 23 players with a 21 AF points cut. Naveen got a few nice TOP300 times and is on a good way to the TOP300! He also became an Elite player with this update, well done!
#315 (316) Brandon Knodel got 7 new records, one of them an Elite A YV flap, which is TO250 and almost a King time. Brandon passed 11 players with a nice 15 AF points cut, but wasn't able to hold Naveem off his back. He needs to get a few more PRs now to repass him!
#580 (604) Anthony Caiulo got 5 PRs, which are pretty unbalanced, as they range from 670th to 397th. He still got some really nice cuts and even 2 Elite times and passed 17 players with a 18 AF points cut.


SC Movement

#11 (11) Jake Walter improved FS and DK 3laps, both are ranked 9th now and cut him 0.19 AF points in total. The FS 3lap is a new GOD time and gives him a total of 14 SC GODs, and 15 total.
#124 (13) Anthony Caiulo sent us 6 times, 2 of them were new times on YV dual. He cut around 7 AF points and passed 6 players to reach the TOP130!

That's it! You might ask why I haven't mentioned Duncan's name so far in any news... well, it's a bit weird to write the wrong name for the person you knew when he was active and even battled with. However, I can't change his mind, but still hope that he will come back someday :)

- September 2nd Half - 1000 Players reached in MK64! -
by Chraizy at 10:51 am

Hey guys! It's Chris. We finally reached 1000 players on the MK64 PP! Let's see what else happened this half:

New Players

Christopher Lange joined our site with a complete timeset at #212. He is also the 1000th player on the MK64 PP! SC: #151.
A bit before him joined Naveen Selvam who also submitted 32 times and joined our site at #337.
Eric Smits joined a bit lower, but also with a complete timeset at #546.

World Records

No new nice WRs...

Non-SC Movement

#13 (13) Daniel Burbank improved 9 records in PAL. He is getting really strong times in PAL, for example a perfect sub 5'56 on RRd 3lap! He also subbed SL 3lap. Dan cut 1.4 AF points and is closing in to Trystan for the 12th rank in the AF charts.
#37 (37) Beck Abney improved 2 flaps on WS and RRy. The cuts weren't too big, but he still got a 0.2 AF cut. The next player is still 1.6 AF points away, so he got to work a bit more!
#52 (49) Stefan Kok improved 13 PRs, cut 5.3 AF points and passed 4 players to reach the TOP50! It's a glorious milestone, big congratz! On the other news, Stefan got a few really strong times on MR flap and WS 3lap, which are 26th and 31st. On Banshee Boardwalk he achieved the flap GOD, which is now his 10th GOD!
#51 (54) Michael Arends is continuing to improve his RRy times, the 3lap now even became a TOP10 time at 2'52"87! The flap is 13th with a failed sub 56 at 56"00. Michael improved 0.09 AF points and maintains his rank. Which track will he destroy next?
#82 (80) David Moll was able to improve some MK64 PRs this half and got TT and BC dual PRs. TT became a new double Legend and both are now TOP100s. His BC flap is really close to the GOD time and almost TOP50. It'd be his first TOP50 in non-sc, go and get it David!
#97 (99) Patrick Loseth got a huuge cut this half with 20 new records and a massive 42 AF points cut! He passed 38 players and barely popped into the TOP100! He also became the newest Legend player this half, that's a quite nice double achievement. Patrick got 12 new Legend times and 6 new TOP100s. His last nonTOP200 times got improved, his SL time even went from #221 to #89, congratz!
#107 (105) Lachlan Young got 3 new records on TT dual and FS flap. The cuts weren't too big, and resulted into a 0.3 AF cut.
#187 (188) Kyle Begley got 6 new records, 3 of them are new TOP200s. His KTB flap looks sharp and almost became a Legend time. Kyle passed 5 players with a nice 6.1 AF cut. He also became a King D player in the progress!
#292 (294) Lewis Richards got 11 new records which resulted in a 15 AF points cut. The cuts were constant and he passed 16 players to become the newest TOP300 member.
#294 (296) Anna Moon improved her RRd dual but lost a rank due to the high joiner Christopher. Still, her RRd times cut 20 ranks off of the 3lap and the flap.
#325 (327) Brandon Knodel improved 17 times, mainly in the Mush and Flower cups. Brandon passed 27 players with a 26 AF points cut. He also became the newest Elite F player! Brandon got a few nice times on MMF, KTB and TT flaps, which are all TOP300 times!
#440 (335) Aron Langerak sent us 28 new records, resulting in a huge 76 AF points cut! He passed over 70 players to easily join the TOP400! His timeset is very consistent with TOP300 times, the best times so far are his MMF times, with the 3lap almost being TOP200 and both King F!
#387 (390) Justus Gilstrap got 15 new records on all cups and passed 26 players to join the TOP400 with style. He also reached the Pro B ranks! His LR 3lap is pretty strong at #290 and the KD flap even sits at #216!
#588 (621) Anthony Caiulo improved his MR 3lap and passed 21 players there.

SC Movement

MK64 SC and universal Champ Vincent Tolhuis finally joined the group of the guys who hit the weathertenko SC on CM! He almost subbed 10 seconds with his time, in PAL it almost subbed 12 seconds. He passed one player and regained his flap total #1!
#10 (10) Beck Abney improved 5 PRs of which 2 are new GOD times. They were achieved on KD and YV 3lap. YV is one of the harder GODs in SC, so it's nice to see he nailed it! Beck cut 0.5 AF points and distanced himself from #11 (11) Jake Walter, who also PRed this half with KD and FS flaps. He subbed 5 seconds on the FS flap and gained 6 ranks with it, which resulted in a 0.27 AF cut.
#25 (25) Pat Bertovich also joined the group of weathertenkos! His time jumped from a already really strong 12th rank to an almost sub 8 NTSC flap and #2! Well done!
#45 (42) Marcos Vinicius Alves improved 3 PRs this half on RRy 3lap, DK and RRd flaps. He cut exactly 3 AF points and achieved the GOD time on RRd flap with his very first spiral hit! He passed 5 players and is on his way to the TOP40.
#140 (136) Anthony Caiulo improved his FS 3lap and cut 1.8 AF points. He passed 2 players and is closing in to Burbank.
#153 (155) Lewis Richards sent us 2 new records for TT and improved his WS 3lap. He passed 12 players and cut 5.3 AF points.

That's it for this time. Sadly no new WRs, but many active players and really strong players fight their way to the very top. Hope you enjoyed the news! 'till next time!

- September 1st Half - You could advertise right here!... I'm too tired to think about something productive... -
by Chraizy at 11:13 am

Hey guys! It's Chris. I am coming from a 3 weeks vacation and I am feeling tired after 3 days of work. But don't worry - I will still deliver you the latest news of MK64 world! Here we go:


New Players

Jayden Ly joined our site with 20 PRs, ranked from mid 500s to low 200s. Jayden starts at #524, with a lot of potential upwards as he got a few really nice times already! SC: #286.
Alex Matteson joins us with 32 times at #896.

World Records

Shortcut

Vincent Tolhuis got a new WR on DKJP, with a nice improvement for the flap! It's a 0"05 improvement, which is a lot, and it now stands at 4'06 (NTSC: 3"38)!
You think without non-SC WRs Matthias couldn't have been active this time? Well, that's wrong... he surprised us with his first SC WR! It was TT 3lap, which barely improved Zorans' WR from July 2013. The new time is a 1'49"14 (NTSC: 1'30"77)!!
The flap wasn't safe aswell. Allthough it's only an NTSC tie, but still lies 0"01 behind in PAL, it's still counted as WR. He tied Zorans TT SC flap at 34"67 (NTSC: 28"83)!
Last but not least we have an old veteran here. Myles Bukrim shows up and successfully demonstrated how to be successful on FS SC flap. He broke the tie with the other 2 players and is now 0"01 in front of them. The new time is a 4"89 (PAL: 5"88)!!


Non-SC Movement

#14 (14) Daniel Burbank was the highest active player this half and improved 4 PRs on TT and WS dual. All of them went into the TOP20, and made him cut 0.6 AF points and closed the gap to Jeffrey. He is only 0.8 points away from #13.
#37 (37) Beck Abney improved 18 PRs and got 2 new GODs. He got a few really nice cuts and made it to a 4.6 AF point cut to pass 2 players. The next few spots shouldn't be a problem at all for him, with the cuts he is doing lately he can probably reach TOP30 within the next 2 weeks! He also became the latest Legend+ player! Well done!
#56 (53) Stefan Kok improved 24 PRs and got 4 GOD times. Stefan is on a good way to the TOP30, as he is PRing like crazy lately and passed 14 players with that update! He cut 12 AF points and is also the newest Legend B player, almost even reaching Legend A!
#54 (51) Michael Arends improved his RRy times with dedication and got the GOD at the 3lap. But not only this, he just completely destroyed his old PR and got a sub 2'53 3lap which is an incredibly strong #12 time!! He passed Nathan on the AF lists and is closing in for the Legend A rank.
#293 (295) Anna Moon improved her MR times and got a 303rd ranked 3lap and a 235th ranked flap. Both helped her to pass 4 more players and reach another King time!
#306 (310) Lewis Richards improved 17 PRs and got a few nice TOP300s. He is filling his timeset with Elite times now and became an Elite D player with this update! He passed 25 players and is closing in to the TOP300.
#498 (409) Aron Langerak improved 28 PRs and sent us his missing WS times. He is on a good way to become a great player in this game as he is already constantly hitting TOP400 times! He passed over 400 players with those PRs and went from Beginner C straight to Pro D! If he keeps up the progress I can see him being TOP300 by the next update easily. Go for it!
#685 (604) Mark Chang improved MMF flap and sent us a missing time of DK 3lap. Both made him cut 8.4 AF points and pass 9 players. He also reached the Advanced B standard!

SC Movement

MK64 SC and Universal Champ Vincent Tolhuis improved 2 PRs on WS 3lap and the improvement of his DK flap WR (see WRs). His AF got decreased though, as several other players challenged his times this time.
#6 (6) Myles Bukrim for example untied the FS SC flap which made him lose a spot. Myles long abscence didn't let him rust, though, he got this WR within a few tries!
#10 (10) Beck Abney got 5 new records, 1 of them is a new GOD; RRy flap. He also got a great YV flap, also a new TOP10. He cut 2 AF points in total and easily passed #11 (11) Jake Walter, who PRed on TT 3lap and FS dual. He wasn't able to keep his TOP10 spot for now, but still got a few nice times nonetheless. Jake cut 0.4 AF points and is secured for now.
#16 (17) Matthias Rustemeyer could probably be a threat for him though, as he is boosting through SC lately! With the TT dual WR he owns all 4 WRs on one track! Matthias also improved FS flap which made him cut 39 spots on this course alone! In total he passed 6 players with a 2.4 AF cut.
#49 (47) Marcos Vinicius Alves was impressed by Myles tutorial video and improved his FS flap straight from 90th to 9th! Additionally he was able to get the YV flap GOD aswell, scoring him 2 new GODs with one update. He passed 4 players and is the newest TOP50 member!
#163 (167) Lewis Richards sent us 4 times to improve 1.6 AF points and pass 1 player. Lewis almost reached the TOP100 on CM, and is working on the other courses aswell.
#407 (460) Mark Chang sent us a DK flap time, but didn't pass anyone with it. He cut 3 ranks on the charts though.

- August 2nd half - It's not that I like it warm, but it's reeeeally cold for summer? -
by Chraizy at 12:06 pm

Hey guys! Summer is already over, but the heat in WRs will definitely not stop that soon! Nice battles and stronger WRs than ever were presented this month. Let's see!

New Players

Aron Langerak finally joins MK64! It's the last game he needed to have all 3 classic kart games listed, and now he's on the way to become the #1 classic karter! It seems the controller he currently uses is not good anymore, but he already got a new one on the way. Let's see how far he can get, as he is a MKDD pro and currently also a high level SMK player. Is this the next MK he will destroy? He joins us at #836. SC: #480.
Jonathan Toole-Charignon joined the SC side of MK64 and sent us 4 times for KD and RRd dual. The KD times were incredible strong, the 3lap is over 4 times worse than the second worst time here. But the flap is even stronger, the second worst time here is over EIGHT times better than Jons time! Fried will not approve sleeping while playing, the ranking for this probably would have been reeeeally bad if he saw Jonathan playing. Still, Jon got a new record for the longest time to finish a 3lap race and a flap race. Not only for KD, but across every track... He's currently ranked at #396.


World Records

Non-Shortcut

There are a few new World Records.

Matthias Rustemeyer hit a new World record on FS flap. He beat Dan by 0"01, BUT! Daniel Burbank made a comeback just in time! He beat Matthias back AND achieved the NTSC sub of 32 seconds as the very first person ever. Incredible! It's one of those subs no one thought it would ever be achieved. The new time is a 31"98 (PAL: 38"45)!!!

Matthias also was able to get Laceys WR on DK 3lap. But William Lacey just fought back and easily beat the time TWICE. He got a 2'12"91 (NTSC: 1'50"54) two times!! Well done!


Non-SC Movement

MK64 Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer improved 3 PRs, of which 2 would be WR, if others weren't active. He cut some AF though, as he also improved his DK flap and tied William for the 2nd place here. 4 spots between him and the 1.000 AF. Can he do it?
#5 (6) William Lacey achieved a new WR on DK 3lap. His streak of over 11 years holding that WR is over though. His AF remains the same, as well as his other ranks.
#14 (14) Daniel Burbank won the battle on FS and remained at the same spot. The time was well spent, next time he will probably focus on other tracks again, or will he try the 3lap again?!
#39 (39) Beck Abney got 5 new records on KTB and WS 3lap, MR flap and DK dual. KTB was a new GOD time, which brings him up to 19 non-sc GODs. Beck also got a nice TOP20 flap on DK flap, with a pretty good cut, getting him a 43 seconds PAL sub.
#53 (55) Michael Arends got 5 new records on CM and RRy dual and RRd flap. All of them are new GODs (except RRy 3lap). Michael is making great progress as always, as his RRy flap came out of the TOP100 and is now ranked 36th! He cut 6.2 AF points total and passed 6 players. 7.4 AF points are between him and the TOP50. Will he reach it until the next news update?
#68 (67) Stefan Kok gained a lot of ranks with 25 new PRs! He got a really strong double PR on MR which is ranked 33rd and 29th. In total he dropped 12.1 AF points down and passed 12 players for a TOP75 spot!
#84 (83) Stephen Meakings got a double PR on YV and passed Patrick for the next spot. The 3lap was a nice 1'29 sub and brought him a 72nd ranked time.
#106 (105) Lachlan Young improved 6 PRs and got a 5 AF points cut. He passed 5 players and is only 5 more spots away from the TOP100. In ARR he achieved the Legend F status! His best PR was a CM flap, ranked 68th and is also a new Legend time.
#138 (137) Patrick Loseth set 8 new records across every cup and achieved a few nice times, one of them is a new 71st ranked MMF flap time! He barely missed the GOD time here, but it's still a really nice cut of over 100 ranks! Patrick passed 14 players and is now in the TOP150! His ARR also dropped and is now at King B!
#190 (193) Kyle Begley got 7 new records mainly on Mushroom and Special Cup. The cuts weren't too big, but he got 2 new TOP200s and passed 2 players with a nice 6.2 AF points cut.
#278 (284) Patrick Ode got 7 new records aswell and was able to pass 8 players. He got 2 new TOP300 times and was able to reach the Elite C standard in the progress. He destroyed 3 remaining Master times and is coming closer to a 32/32 Elite timeset. Moo Moo Farm might be a challenge, but he will definitely reach those Elite times soon aswell!
#297 (299) Anna Moon was able to reach the TOP300 with style! With 19 new records she was able to barely get into it, by passing 37 players with a big 36 AF points cut! She got many new Elite times, and reached the Elite D standard. She got many nice times, a new King time on RRy flap across them, which is also a new TOP200!
#303 (305) Ryan Dunlap got a new KD 3lap PR, but got passed by Anna, so he lost a spot. The 3lap cut 20 ranks though, and is now at 231st.
#330 (335) Lewis Richards got 21 new records and passed 35 players to easily reach the TOP350! He eliminated many of his old non-TOP400 ranks and got a lot of low #300s. Lewis got a 33.3 AF point cut and also passed a whole standard and is closer to Elite than ever!
#357 (362) Jonathan Toole-Charignon played more non-sc and passed 146 players with an enormous cut of 142 AF points! Jon got a wide range of PRs now, ranging from out of TOP500 up to 208th on YV flap. He already achieved a few King times, and if he could get his hands on a N64, he could definitely reach some higher ranks!
#413 (415) Justus Gilstrap got 26 new records and passed 54 players with a 65 AF points cut. His PRs range from out of TOP500 to mid 200s aswell. He already got a few Elite times, and is close the TOP400. His ARR is now also almost a whole standard higher, sitting at Pro D now!
#426 (425) Rich Hatch got a new WS 3lap and gained a bit AF, but sadly he got passed by 2 players, so no rank gain for him.
#720 (784) Craig Sargent got 6 new records and passed 12 players. He cut 14 AF points and got a stronger LR dual time. His 3lap is TOP600 and also a Semi-Pro F time!
#746 (819) Scott Campbell got 30 new records and passed 47 players with a nice 36 AF points cut. He got a few nice #600-ish times, and is on a good way to break out of the TOP800 soon!


SC Movement

#11 (10) Jake Walter improved 4 records on LR and FS 3laps and WS dual. He cut a few ranks, but not enough to come much closer to Ben on the 9th spot. He should worry about his TOP10 spot though, as #10 (11) Beck Abney is incredible close. With 7 new PRs, 2 of them are new GODs (which leads to a total SC GOD count of 10) he cut over 5 AF points, mostly coming from WS dual. He is only 1 rank behind Jake in AF, so any PR could get him past Jake! In the WRL he already passed him, making him officially a TOP10 member.
#68 (77) Patrick Loseth got 3 new records on CM dual and MR flap. His CM is looking sharper than ever with a big 10 seconds cut on the 3lap. MR flap was an even bigger cut. He came out of the TOP200 and improved it down to 37th! That's insane, and to top it it's also a Legend B time! Well done!
#165 (168) Lewis Richards posted 4 new times for his timeset on FS and CM dual. He also improved DK and RRd dual. He got a strong cut of 42.5 AF points and passed over 100 players! He almost landed in the TOP150, which is not too far away.

That's it! Join me again next time!

- August first half - you never know what will happen tomorrow... but you might be surprised what CAN happen! :) -
by Chraizy at 7:38 am

Hey guys, it's Chris here. Vacation is coming closer and more playing will be done in the future. With so many events happening lately I really got motivated to play some of the older karts... we got a Jersey MK64 meet this weekend and the SMK World Championship was held last week aswell. You may not be too interested in SMK, but it's definitely worth to rewatch all the stuff on twitch! Some crazy battles... however, I'm here to bring you some news, so here we go!

New Players

No new players...

World Records

Non-Shortcut

There are a few new World Records.

Matthias Rustemeyer improved both of his RRd WRs. Allthough Zoran Tintor was able to gain both WRs from Matthias in non-sc with tiny cuts of 0"01 in the flap and 0"02 in the 3lap, Matthias decided to come back from the jungle and improved the RRd flap by the exact same amount of 0"01. It now stands at 1'56"95 (NTSC: 1'37"26)!
The 3lap went down by a bit more, over 2 tenths to be exact! Matthias showed us some unreal splits, being able to even sub 5'53 (think about that...). The new WR is 5'53"56 (NTSC: 4'54"05)!
Matthias also gained the 31st Halford 10 standard, which means... every Halford 10 standard has now been beaten! The new time is a RRy flap of 55"63 (NTSC: 46"27)!

Shortcut

Vincent Tolhuis improved his RRy 3lap and finally subbed here! With that sub he also gained the WR and it stands now at a time of 1'59"87 (NTSC: 1'39"69)!!
The other WR came on RRd, which was already his WR, but he pushed by another tenth. The new WR is 3'56"52 (NTSC: 3'16"71)!
But Zoran Tintor got his hands on the SC side aswell, playing RRd here,too. He improved his own flap by almost 0"15 and it stands now at 1'17"63 (NTSC: 1'04"56)!!


Non-SC Movement

MK64 Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer improved 4 PRs/WRs, which were only significant for his 3lap and flap totals. He stands at the same AF.
#4 (4) Zoran Tintor improved his MMF 3lap and dual RRd for a fantastic cut of 0.2 points. He's coming dangerously close to Vincent now...
We have a very surprising comeback from #21 (21) Eddie Taylor! Eddie was fascinated by Matthias and others streaming and decided to see if he can still get those nice PRs. He did, with a new GOD on YV flap! This is his 28th GOD, and watching his timeset, he is missing 2, which are not thaaat hard to get. At least BC flap GOD seems like a nice goal for the next time. Come on, you can get that one! :)
#40 (39) Beck Abney improved 9 PRs and is coming closer to the Legend+ level. He improved his RRd 3lap by over a second and achieved another GOD time here! His CM 3lap doesn't look bad aswell and could probably reach GOD soon aswell.
#58 (61) Michael Arends improved 5 PRs this half. There's nothing more to sa... wait, is that a GOD time on MR flap?! Seems like. Well, Michael got the probably hardest flap GOD, which leads him a lot closer to the overall GOD! Apart from that, he also reached the BB 3lap GOD, and 2 really nice TOP 100 CM times. It seems his CM 3lap will sub 1'58 soon, and the GOD here won't be a problem at all for him if he can get 3/3 good end jumps.
#81 (79) Stefan Kok played a bit LR and secured his 79th spot from Stacy Needham.
#84 (84) Stephen Meakings played WS 3lap and BC dual. His WS 3lap looks sharp with a nice 3'43 sub and Legend D standard. His BC times got improved a lot aswell and overall he cut 3.3 AF points to pass 3 players, including #86 (85) Craig Makepeace, who PRed on LR dual. His flap is almost a GOD time, and the 3lap is now ranked Legend C. Craig passed 2 players, but got, as already mentioned, passed by Stephen, so he only passed one person with a 1.8 AF cut.
#87 (88) Brent Wingert PRed on MMF dual and TT 3lap. They weren't very big improvements, but it was enough to cut 0.6 AF points and come closer to Kevin Borne in the charts.
#177 (178) Andrew Weatherton played YV this half and his 3lap went down by 0.35 seconds. It might be a small PR, but the 3 players in front of him were so close together, that he passed all of them with one PR!
#194 (195) Kyle Begley improved 4 PRs, mainly on flaps, and managed a nice 5.2 AF point cut. He got 3 new TOP200s, and a new King time aswell. Kyle passed 3 players and is now facing a big 3 AF point gap.
#286 (292) Patrick Ode improved 22 PRs and cut 35 AF points to pass 32 players. He reached the TOP300 and improved a few of his last remaining Expert and Semi-Pro times.
#332 (336) Anna Moon improved 13 PRs and especially her DK times look very solid being in the TOP300. She passed 15 players and finally reached the Elite F ARR! Anna is constantly PRing, I could see her in the TOP200 very soon if she continues with that pace!
#364 (370) Lewis Richards has gone wild as usual. With 28 PRs he almost improved his entire timesheet (again!) and passed 46 players to reach the TOP400! Lewis is getting more and more Elite times and almost made it into the Master ranks, now sitting at Pro A!
#498 (508) Jonathan Toole-Charignon got 12 very nice PRs at the Jersey meet that was held this weekend. A few times are even time trial first tries! That shows that he got a lot more potential in this game. He made a pretty nice cut from all his 600th ranked times, and most of them are now in the TOP500 range. KTB flap even went down to #356, being an Elite D time, which is also his very first Elite time! He passed 64 players with a 54 AF points cut and is closing in to the TOP500.
#569 (579) Pascal Schlereth got 13 new PRs, most of them in the Advanced/Expert range. He got a Pro A time though, on RRd 3lap, where he cut 10 seconds off of his old time! It's also a TOP400 time and all in all he cut 20 AF points to pass 24 players. That made him become the latest TOP600 member! Additionally he also reached the Expert F standard.
#865 (648) Paul Fisher improved YV flap, and he is now probably the lowest ranked person with a GOD time, as this was his first one! Big congratz to that achievment!
#755 (833) Mark Vizza improved 23 PRs across every cup and passed 32 players. He is making slow progress, but he is very consistent.


SC Movement

SC Time Trial Champ Vincent Tolhuis improved 2 WRs this half and cut a bit off of his 3lap totals. No significant AF cuts though.
#3 (3) Zoran Tintor got 3 PRs on LR 3lap and RRd dual. He cut the tiniest amount of AF and comes closer to Greg.
#14 (16) Beck Abney improved 12 PRs this half! It resulted in 2 new GOD and 2 new Legend times. Beck passed 11 players with an enormous 8.4 AF point cut! Mostly his FS flap brought him that big cut, as he passed 49 players here to become #8! Well done!
Non-SC Champ #23 (23) Matthias Rustemeyer fooled around with the spiral jump on RRd and after a few fails in the beginning he first tried a 3/3 attempt. His first ever, which resulted in a really nice 3rd ranked time! Matthias cut 0.3 AF points and maintains his rank.
#64 (66) Andrew Weatherton improved his MR flap by a good margin and reached a King A rank. He maintains his current AF rank.
#69 (69) Michael Arends played MR 3lap an RRd flap. His MR 3lap seems to be still a 1/3 run, so he didn't cut that many ranks. On RRd, however, he finally achieved the spiral jump and reached another GOD time!
#123 (116) Paul Fisher improved his YV flap and got the fencejump to work. He reached the GOD time here and also a new TOP50!

- July 2nd half -. another fantastic Mario Kart 64 month is over! -
by Chraizy at 7:10 am

Hey guys! With the last month we had two MK64 events, the European Meet 2014 in Germany and the Virginia Meet in the USA! The meets where definitely fantastic, and some of you have followed the action over the live stream. Nice fights and shoutouts to the hoster of the meetings!


New Players

Nicholas Joseph Renzetti III joined the MK64 site! He debuted at a rank of #796, but will probably aim for higher spots. SC: #421


World Records

Non-Shortcut

There are a few new World Records.

Matthias Rustemeyer went mad at the last few days and beat 2 of the hardest Halford 10 standards. He is currently at 31/32 Halford 10s (one not included as it was achieved after the update). The 3 WRs he improved were on TT 3lap, with an incredible cut of 0"13 seconds, with the WR being a 2'58"63 (NTSC: 2'28"56)!!
The other two were on RRy. First he improved the 3lap by over 2 tenths (!) to a 2'51"75 (NTSC: 2'22"84), which also made the NTSC sub happen! The flap went down by 0"05 seconds, now being the first flap under 55"7 with a time of 55"66 (NTSC: 46"29)!

Shortcut

We got 2 not so typical WR holders here today. William Lacey, who joined the SC side of MK64 recently already achieved his first WR! It was on MR, he was craving for it so bad the last few weeks, and now it finally happened. The new time is a 1'00"81 (NTSC: 50"57)!!
The other WR came from Beck Abney, who was the first person to hit the Weathertenko, the newest discovery in the SC world, which was never achieved humanly before! It's really a huge achievment, as it beats the old WR by 9"99 seconds!! It now stands at 5"89 (PAL: 7"08)!!! It's also Becks first World Record, so another huge congratz to that!

Non-SC Movement

MK64 Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer got, as already mentioned, 3 new WRs. Except for his flap and 3lap totals it didn't change very much. Matthias now has a lead of over 1 second in the flap totals, and a bit over 1,5 seconds in the 3lap totals. Only 0"42 more seconds to go for the next minute sub in the 3lap charts! Can he do it?
#3 (3) Vincent Tolhuis improved his KD flap, but with no significant changes. He remains at the same spot with the same AF, just as Matthias.
#5 (6) William Lacey improved his LR 3lap and pushed it another tenth to reach the TOP5 on this chart. He's not far behind Jamie White, if he keeps up the progress he could catch up with him and regain his #5 spot!
#10 (10) Greg Ihnatenko improved his FS flap by 0"06 seconds and is now 11th here. His AF dropped to a sub 11 now and puts him only one AF point behind Marcelo! Not too far anymore...
#14 (14) Daniel Burbank improved CM and BB 3laps, both with not that big cuts, but it helped him to cut 0.15 AF points. He maintains the same spot for now, but the next player is not too far away.
#41 (41) Beck Abney improved KTB and SL 3laps, and FS and YV flaps. The cuts weren't too big except for FS flap were he cut over two tenths to pass 21 players! It's also a new GOD for him, his 17th Non-SC GOD so far. Beck passed 2 players and came closer to the Legend + ARR!
#64 (62) Darius Austin got impressed by Matthias' live streams of RRy and tried it himself. With a really huge cut of over a second from his old time he was able to pass 2 players with only a single PR! His time is also a new Legend for him.
#67 (69) Michael Arends, the course specialist tested himself on KTB and BB this half. KTB, still in work probably, has seen a new Legend 3lap and TOP100 time so far, the flap also went down a few ranks, but is not as strong yet. The real focusing was on BB this time. He improved both times into the #50 range and even hit the GOD on the flap with a perfect GOD tie! If Michael keeps up to focus course by course he could easily end up as the next GOD!
#87 (86) Craig Makepeace improved his LR 3lap and passed 12 players here. He also passed one player in the overall charts.
#111 (110) Lachlan Young got 5 new PRs on KTB and DK dual and SL flap. All of his times went close to TOP100/into the TOP100 and gained him a really nice AF cut of 4.3 points!
#154 (151) Patrick Loseth improved both RRy times, with significant cuts! The 3lap got almost halfed rankwise and he now stands at #76 there with a Legend C standard! The flap though was more important, as it's a new GOD for him... but not only a GOD, it's his first non-sc GOD! Well done! RRy is now his strongest course rankwise.
#349 (351) Anna Moon improved 23 times in the last half, most of them were double PRs. She got many new Elite and Master times, and is erasing more and more Pro times! Anna passed 26 players with a 25.4 AF point cut.
#412 (416) Lewis Richards improved his entire timesheet! With 32 new PRs he was able to easily surpass 53 players! The highlights of his PRs were his very first Legend rank (while he is not even a TOP400 player!) on YV flap! His 3lap looks solid aswell, being only 43 spots behind his flap and has also reached the King standard. His BB times are also really good, both ranked 309th and Elite C/D times.
#865 (649) Paul Fisher improved his YV flap a bit more and maintains his rank.
#675 (730) Mathias Haugvik improved 19 times in the last half and made a great 43 AF point cut. He passed 53 players and made it into the TOP750!
#780 (865) Mark Vizza improved 19 times and passed 22 players. He also made to jump out of the Newbie range and is now the newest Beginner C player!

SC Movement

Time Trial SC and Universal Champ Vincent Tolhuis improved his CM flap, but he got passed from Beck, so he dropped a spot and lost a bit AF.
#2 (2) Greg Ihnatenko improved his KD 3lap by another two tenths and is now ranked 4th here. No AF changes though.
#11 (10) Jake Walter got 5 new records which are really from high quality! His MR flap and YV 3lap both became new GODs, which are his 11th and 12th GODs in SC! His AF dropped enough to tie Michael Fried for the TOP10 spot! Well done!
#26 (27) Beck Abney achieved 8 new records, one of them the new WR with the Weathertenko on CM. He got a few nice Legend times and improved some times by a good amount! He passed 2 players with a 6.5 AF points cut. He also achieved something really nice with the huge cut on the CM flap, he became the new #1 in the flap totals!
#117 (114) Anna Moon improved TT 3laps and RRd flap, which she tried at the Solingen meet already. She succeded in improving it by another second, but so far the spiral didn't come. She will hit it soon though, as the tries at the meet looked promising!
#150 (135) Daniel Burbank sent 3 new records for his timeset. Those are FS flap and CM dual. FS is close to the TOP100, while the CM times are already inside. Daniel passed 31 players and got a rank promotion to Elite D!
#176 (153) William Lacey finally achieved the MR 3lap WR! This didn't affect his AF or RR stats though, as it was only a gain of one spot. Still, alone this WR should make William feel really happy now, as it took him a good amount of time.
#264 (273) Lewis Richards sent us two times for MR and improved his RRd flap. The cuts weren't too big, but it helped him to pass 6 players.

That's it for now! Hope to see you next time again!

- July 1st half - Germany is World Champ! -
by Chraizy at 12:53 pm

Hello guys! I have not much time to write news at such a time, as the final exams are upcoming next week, but I still achieved it somehow so here they are!

New Players

Carson Keenan joined our site with 32 times, debuting at #832.
Scott Campbell joined us with 32 times aswell, just a little bit higher in the ranks. His debut rank is #864.
Jack Cummins joins with only one time on RRd 3lap. He starts his journey at #959.
Trent Morgan (joins SC) sent us WS dual and RRd flap times. He is trying new territory, and starts at #358.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

There are 2 new World Records.

Matthias Rustemeyer got beat by Daniel on FS flap, but he didn't want to lose this WR, so he decided to try the flap again after his PAL return. The new PAL World Record is 38"53 (NTSC: 32"04)!
But Daniel Burbank tried his hands on the flap aswell and was able to cut even more from the old time, making a sub look possible in NTSC. The new NTSC and overall WR is 32"03 (PAL: 38"51)!!


Non-SC Movement

MK64 Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer improved his FS flap, but wasn't able to hold it, so he loses 0.03 AF points and one of the many WRs he held.
#4 (4) Zoran Tintor improved his KD 3lap by a huge margin for his level and cut almost 0"4 seconds off his old time! He passed 2 players and is only 0.5 AF points away from the podium.
#10 (10) Greg Ihnatenko improved on KD 3lap, but the flap aswell. Both are new TOP10s for him and made him cut 0.15 AF points. Sub 11 AF isn't too far away and probably reachable if he keeps up playing in the next weeks!
#14 (14) Daniel Burbank got, apart from his FS flap WR 9 other PRs! Mainly in Star and Special Cup he managed to cut many AF points. His YV flap is even a new TOP10, ranked 8th. He cut 1.4 points, but didn't pass a player, as the gap is really huge. Still, he lowered it to 1.7, which seems way more reachable. Keep it up!
#44 (43) Beck Abney improved 2 PRs. One came on KD flap, where he cut 6 ranks and the other one was on BC 3lap, where he passed 17 players. In AF he passed one player and is on course to reach the TOP40.
#71 (78) Michael Arends played some WS and improved both PRs here. With a nice cut of 2.8 points he was able to pass 3 players and reach the TOP80. Well done!
#116 (114) Dan Tarr also got a double improvement, but on KD. He cut a lot of ranks with those 2 PRs and got a new Legend time on the flap! Dan passed 3 players.
Right behind we have #117 (115) Lachlan Young, who is one of those passed players and lost a spot, even though he PRed on MR 3lap. the 3lap went down to sub 1'30, which is also a new TOP100 for him and only 0"3 away from the GOD time!
#242 (246) Trent Morgan got a double PR on TT and passed 1 player with a 0.5 AF point cut.
#302 (303) Ryan Dunlap sent us 22 PRs this half, which are mostly ranked around #250 - #300. Ryan passed 37 players with a big 35 AF point cut! In ARR he left the Master standards and is now an Elite D player!
#371 (377) Anna Moon improved many of her old Semi-Pro times and reached Pro on most of them. She even got the Master standard in WS flap! Anna passed 15 players and is on a good way to reach the Master ranks!
#487 (500) Rick Kwasnik improved 10 times and beat some of his Expert times and got some new Semi-Pro ones. In ARR he is really close to the next rank promotion, almost leaving the Expert ranks! In AF he passed 18 players and reached the TOP500!
#864 (649) Paul Fisher played YV and sent us missing times from there. Both are directly ranked 85th and 81st. Both are Legend times, and they helped him to cut 47 AF points! That makes him pass 61 players and easily reach the TOP700!


SC Movement

The highest active player was #2 (2) Greg Ihnatenko, who scored a new KD flap which cut 0"12 seconds and gained him one rank.
#11 (11) Jake Walter played KD, YV and RRd 3laps and improved a few ARR points. In AF he wasn't able to cut any points, as #29 (29) Beck Abney just raged through some courses and beat a few of his times. With 9 strong PRs he achieved 2 new TOP20s and even 2 TOP10s on KD! Beck passed 3 players and also reached the Legend D standard!
#129 (118) Paul Fisher reached the RRd 3lap GOD and also gained 4 other PRs. In total he cut 5.1 AF points and passed 12 players. He's on a good way to reach the TOP100 if he keeps this PR spree on!
#190 (166) Daniel Burbank added 5 times to his SC timeset, and just got a new GOD on RRd 3lap! He cut 38 AF points and was able to pass 80 players and easily reach the TOP200! Dan still got no rank in ARR, but that should change soon, as those RRd PRs are pretty sick.
#314 (306) Rick Kwasnik PRed on FS flap and passed a single person in the AF charts.


That's it guys! Join me next time for some more action!
