- November News - MK64 again one of the highest active communities -
by Chraizy at 12:12 pm

Hey guys! Chris here. It's been a while, but I am back and ready for some news! Let's see what happened last month!

New Players

David Gutierrez Pena, also known as OptimisticEmo in the MKDD world joined our site with a complete timeset at #644. David showed an impressive rise in MKDD, let's see if he can reproduce that here! He also sent two SC times to debut at #395 there.
Adam Roberts, more known in the MK7 section joined us with a complete timeset aswell and debuts at #893.
Stephanie Leyritz sent us dual LR and MMF times, with a Rainbow Road 3lap on top of that. She debuts at #967.


World Records

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer sets a new WR on RRy after Dan tied him here. The 3lap got beaten 2 times and stands at 2'51"66 (NTSC: 2'22"76) now!

Daniel Burbank, not without a blast here, has been defeated on RRy, but he took 2 WRs of MR and beat the 2 ties to claim both of them for himself. The 3lap is now at 1'27"74, which is not only a strong improvement but also made the NTSC sub possible (1'12"97)!

The flap was a small 0"01 improvement, but we all know how much 0"01 actually is on this course! Dan beat the tie and stands alone at 27"66 (NTSC: 23"00) now, barely missing the NTSC sub, which would require a 27"64!

And that's not enough, Dan also claimed two NTSC records, one on MR again, which was a new 3lap record of 1'13"26 (PAL: 1'28"09).

The other one was on TT, which was a tie with Matthias old 3lap record. It stands at 2'29"12 (PAL: 2'59"30)!


Non-SC Movement

Matthias Rustemeyer, the MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion set a new RRy 3lap WR. but lost ranks due to Dans WRs. He is down to 1.125 AF again, 4 spots away from the perfect AF.
#2 (2) Daniel Burbank, who is defending the happening of a 1.000 AF with his heart set 5 new records on MR dual with a dual WR, RRy with nice improvements and a brief WR on RRy 3lap and BC flap, which was an improvement from #7 to #6. He cut 2 spots and is solidifying his position and lead to Beck...
Speaking of #3 (3) Beck Abney, he returned to Non-SC this month with 3 new records on KD and MR flaps and a new SL 3lap. KD and SL were smaller PRs which didn't cut any ranks, his MR was a 0"02 cut and helped him to overcome a triple tie to land at 4th place.
#8 (7) Daniel Lunczer had a MR 3lap improvement to report and scored a new TOP10 time. His AF dropped a litte bit though, as many of the guys above him set a few impressive times!
#15 (15) Michael Arends hit 2 new records on FS and SL flaps. FS was a small 0"02 improvement and SL was a 0"03 improvement landing on 38"00, barely missing the sub! It was a small improvement from #8 to #7.
#17 (17) Marcos Vinicius Alves who already showed us that he can do great things in SC had a brutal BC session with two very strong improvements! The 3lap went from #30 -> #8 and his flap was a 43"31 time, ranked 6th and coming from 28th! The flap had a mess up in it and could have been even stronger, so we ae looking forward if he can beat this time again!
#29 (29) Frankie Morgan set 2 records on MMF 3lap and MR 3lap, both are older and weaker times of him which he improved both by 15 and 10 ranks. His MMF 3lap was the last time outside the TOP50, so all of his times are now 49th or better! Frankie passed one player with his 0.7 AF cut, in the WRL he passed 2 players and made the jump into the TOP30!
#47 (48) Jayden Ly set an impressive 15 new PRs this month, with 2 new GODs on KTB flap and RRy 3lap. Jayden improved many of his weaker times and was able to cut 8.7 AF point to pass 11 players and comfortably reach the TOP50! Jayden is also close to the Legend+ ARR, only a few more improvements and he got it.
#48 (47) David Moll who sits exactly one spot above in AF was able to escape Jaydens PR haul and keeps his rank with 9 new records. 2 new GODs were among those on KTB 3lap and RRy 3lap, being his 15th and 16th GOD times! Half of the timeset is GOD now, the other half will probably be harder, but since David once only wanted to have 1 GOD time in an MK game, he already collected a very nice amount of them! David passed 3 players and the 4.1 AF cut was almost enough to get him a sub 50 AF.
#50 (49) Jake Walter who got passed by both persons above sent a single PR on SL which was a new TOP50 time and tried to reduce the damage done by the guys above. He lost almost half a point though as many of his times got beaten.
#66 (64) Kyle Labelle hit a nice collection of PRs aswell, 15 new records, with 7 new GOD times to report is a nice way to end a month! Kyle passed 15 players with a big 15 AF point cut. His best time in the submission was a new BB flap, ranked 38th and was also his biggest improvement coming from #118. In ARR, he was able to leave the Legend C ranks and joined the Legend B ranks!
#73 (72) Kyle Begley lost his lead to the other Kyle but still had the power to set a new FS flap which provided him a 7 ranks cut on the charts there. It wasn't enough to keep his AF from dropping, as he lost 0.3 points due to the other players above.
#114 (114) James Farrell-Shaw improved 3 times on FS, SL and DK flaps, all of them cutting a smaller amount of time to help him gaining 0.75 AF points. For now he maintains his position, but is actually very close to the next spot.
#191 (192) Hans Jorgen Follevaag hit 2 new PRs, a dual record on RRy. His 3lap made it into the King ranks and his flap not only reached Legend F but also is a TOP150 time! He cut 2.5 AF points and passed 7 players.
#194 (201) Doss Willowhite had an amazing streak with 31 new PRs this month! Only TT flap hasn't been improved, but he got a lot of new strong times everywhere else! His highest rank was a 98th ranked WS 3lap and the highest standard was 126th ranked SL 3lap, his first Legend time! A total AF cut of 104.5 points secured him a gigantic jump of 96 spots, barely missing the TOP200! His ARR improved from Elite C straight to King D aswell, making him the newest King player.
#220 (222) Valentin Vilas Boas improved 15 PRs, almost half of his timeset, to secure himself a nice 17.2 AF cut which let him pass 15 players. Valentin hit 3 new King times and in total he made the jump to the King ranks at King F aswell!
#226 (229) Christopher Lange had a session on RRd 3lap and improved his time by 2.2 seconds to a TOP200 time. He cut 0.7 AF points and maintains his rank.
#234 (240) Jed Grabman just refreshed his timeset with a 32 PR submission! Many smaller improvements, but enough to bring every time into the TOP300! Jeds timeset is ranging from 298th to 188th, so there's still room for balancing it out. Jed passed 27 players with a nice 33 AF cut, also gaining that Elite A rank in ARR in the progress!
#245 (249) Tyler chambers hit 3 new PRs, a double PR on MMF and a new WS flap time. MMF flap looks sharp with a new TOP300 time in the King D ranks and WS flap is also looking good as another King time in his timeset. Tyler did pass two players, but got passed by the others above him, so no rank gain.
#310 (315) Gerard Seinstra hit 5 new records on CM, SL dual and RRy 3lap. One Pro time has been demolished and a Master time has been improved to Elite. Gerard passed 8 players with an exact 6 AF point cut.
#384 (389) Kevin Beauregard hit 6 PRs, dual PRs on MMF and CM and flap PRs on MR and DK. He got a 14.5 AF cut and passed 16 players, making him join the TOP400.
#556 (572) Peter Ford hit 8 new records, with a few new TOP650 times. Peter hit a few Semi-Pro times and was able to increase his rank to Expert B. He cut 12 AF points and passed 16 players.
#560 (563) Anthony Caiulo hit 11 PRs, 3 more than Peter but had a few much stronger improvements. Times outside the TOP700 got improved and are now not only in the TOP500, but also TOP400 range! Anthony passed 89 players with a massive 72 AF point cut. His ARR improved from Expert F to Expert A, not far away from the Semi-Pro ranks.
#828 (931) Jordan Fetner sent us 9 PRs, which resulted into a total cut of 3.3 AF points and he passed 7 players with it. His ARR rank improved from Beginner C to Beginner B, closing in to the Apprentice ranks!
#1002 (833) Dominik Kersch improved his LR and KTB flaps and got 2 new TOP400 times. He passed 9 players with a 6.9 AF cut.


SC Movement

Beck Abney, the MK64 SC and Universal Champ has provided us a WS 3lap improvement, which was still one of his worst time in his SC set. It went from #5 to #3 and leaves only FS flap and DK 3lap outside of the TOP3. Beck made the jump in AF from 2.000 to 1.909 with his PR, allowing him to surpass the sub 2 AF barrier.
#103 (104) Anthony Caiulo sent us 10 new records for TT, FS, MR and DK dual, CM flap and RRy 3lap. he got 2 new TOP100 times and got a few new ranked standards which helped him to get an Elite D standard in ARR! Anthony passed 32 players and barely missed the TOP100, which requires another 5 AF points.
#106 (106) Jayden Ly beat his MR and RRd flaps and improved both of them into the Legend area. RRd was also a new TOP100 time and both PRs helped him to cut 1.7 AF points to pass 3 players.
#113 (117) Jed Grabman improved 4 PRs on FS flap, RRy 3lap and DK dual. FS and RRy were new TOP100 times, FS and DK 3lap were both new Kings. Jed passed 4 players with a 3.2 AF cut and is closing in to the other two active guys above him.
#148 (140) James Farrell-Shaw had 8 PRs to report, mostly new TOP200 times which were enough to cut 11.7 AF points to pass 13 players, which was enough to reach the TOP150 with ease!
#288 (259) Kyle Labelle sent us a MR flap for his timeset and scored a 144th ranked time. A 6 AF point cut was the result and Kyle passed 18 people with it.
#488 (428) Gerard Seinstra improved his RRd flap by 4 seconds and passed 110 players on the charts there, scoring a new TOP200 time. He passed 50 players with this improvement and is quickly closing in to the TOP400.

Allright, that's it for now! Hope you enjoyed and see you next time :)

- October 2nd half - Oktoberfest is over... let's have some more! -
by Chraizy at 11:24 am

Hey guys, Chris here with the newest News. October is over, and germans activity in drinking beer and eating Weisswurst is slowly going to stop. But to give you some more tatse of germans... just read the news and you will find out what happened

Neue Spieler

Kevin Beauregard sent us a full timeset and joins us quite in the middle of the field at #405.

Weltrekorde

Non-Shortcut

Matthias Rustemeyer had a strong last half of October after gaining enough power over the Oktoberfesttime, with 2 regained WRs on MR. The first was the 3lap which tied Dans World Record at 1'27"81 (NTSC: 1'13"03)!The flap also tied Dan, and stands at 27"67 (NTSC: 23"01)!

William Lacey didn't like Matthias' aim for 32 Beer Records and unhoarded one of his DKJP times. It beats the old WR by 0"17 seconds and stands at a 2'12"50 (NTSC: 1'50"20)!


Non-SC Entwicklung

Matthias Rustemeyer, the MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion successfully brought his AF down by 0.03. With 2 WRs gained and one lost it's bringing him up to 30/32 WRs again.
#2 (2) Daniel Burbank sent in his WS time from last half and remains at the same position.
#5 (5) John Dude had a nice FS and MR 3lap to report, cutting one rank and coming a tiny bit closer to Michael Jongerius.
#7 (8) William Lacey, the savior of the Anti 1.000 Alliance (at least for this time) hit a new DKJP 3lap WR and maintains his current rank.
#8 (7) Daniel Lunczer is right behind in the WRL, but is coming closer with a small MR 3lap PR, which could have tied John IF he wouldn't have PRd himself, so he remains at ther same spot.
#31 (30) Frankie Morgan hit a double KTB PR, bringing his 3lap down to #22 and his flap from #44 to #31. He cut 0.7 AF points and is coming closer to Zwartjes in the Af lists.
#60 (59) Jayden Ly hit 7 new records this half with improvements for KTB and BB dual, DK 3lap and TT and CM flaps. All of them cut a nice amount of ranks and TT flap and BB 3lap were new GOD times. Jayden passed 4 players to reach the TOP60 and also got the Legend A rank on the way.
#73 (71) Kyle Begley hit a single KD improvement for the 3lap and jumped up 2 ranks here. He lost a significant amount of AF due to surrounding AF cuts tho.
#79 (79) Kyle Labelle was the main part here, getting 27 new records only leaving 5 Non-TOP100 times in his timeset. He improved all his PRs at least to Legend standard and achieved his first GOD(s!) on MMF flap, KD flap (his first GOD of all), FS flap, SL flap and YV flap. Quite some potential here, with a huge jump from 136th to 79th with a big 60 AF point cut! Not only this, his ARR also improved from King A straight to Legend C, not only making him the latest TOP100 player, but also the latest Legend player! Congratulations!
#158 (163) Mike Gaydeski improved 4 PRs on MMF, KD and RRd 3laps and YV flap. MMF and YV were both new TOP200s and RRd was the strongest time in this submission ranked 133rd. Mike passed 3 players with a nice 5.7 AF cut and is on his way to the King B ranks.
#188 (187) Aljoscha Schneider was active and sent us 10 new records across all cups. Most of the times are now close to TOP200, and especially his RRy flap stood out ranked 123rd and Legend D! Aljoscha passed 15 players with a healthy 10.5 AF cut, bringing his AF below 200.
#193 (199) Hans Jorgen Follevaag sent us a single PR for CM 3lap which was a sub 2'01 3lap ranked 207th. He cut 0.5 AF points, but lost a rank due to Aljoscha.
#317 (323) Gerard Seinstra was on PR hunt aswell with 12 new records to report. He improved his DK 3lap time into the Pro area, only leaving MMF and YV 3laps in the Semi-Pro area. He also achieved a new King flap on TT, bringing the King counter up to 8. Gerard passed 8 players with a nice 10.1 AF cut. His ARR also reached the next level at Elite D!
#565 (588) Peter Ford sent us a complete overhaul of his old timeset with 32 new PRs! He hit many new Expert times, a few Semi-Pros, Pros and even an Elite time on DK flap! Peter passed 137 players with a huge 106 AF point cut, cutting 14% off his old AF. He also left the Advanced F area and jumped straight into the Expert C pool! Well done.
#1001 (842) Dominic Kersch has sent us a new time for KTB flap, which jumped from 967th to 432nd, allowing him to cut 16 points and passing as many players on the AF list.

SC Entwicklung

#8 (8) Daniel Lunczer hit 2 PRs on MR 3lap and DK 3lap. MR was a nice cut of 0"3 seconds which allowed him to enter the single digit ranks at #8. His DK 3lap was a smaller cut, but helped him to pass fellow german Matthias and reach the Legend C rank. He cut 0.15 AF points and is coming closer to Alex G and the german crown!
#81 (73) Daniel Burbank had another shot at MR flap and improved his time to 18"78 ranked 17th. He passed one player in the AF lists.
#329 (277) Kyle Labelle hit successfully the LR Mylestyle and sent us his first submission for it, ranked 55th at Legend A. He passed 33 persons with this PR alone!
#371 (387) Jay Dupont also sent us a single PR, but for RRy 3lap, which got cut by another 2.4 seconds to land him into the TOP200! Jay passed 5 players with this PR.

This is it! This is it! Hope you tune in for the next update aswell. Till then... cya~

- October 1st half - WRs? SO MANY?! -
by Chraizy at 12:01 pm

Hey guys, it's Chris!

New Players

Peter Ford sent us a complete timeset to debut at #725.
Jay Dupont also sent us a new timeset and starts a little bit more down at #851. SC: #392.
Dominic Kersch debuted at #858, sending us 6 flaps which are ranked in the 300ish range. If he fills his timeset his estimated rank could be in the 300-400 area.
Christopher Carp sent us 4 times and joined the SC side this half. With a dual FS and DK time he debuted at #395.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank and Matthias Rustemeyer had some serious fights on WS going on. Dan came with the first improvement of the 3lap with a 4'20"75, which Matthias answered with a 4'20"70. Dan beat it by the smallest amount with a 4'20"67. Matthias however came with a very strong time and pushed it to the now standing WR of 4'20"48 (NTSC: 3'36"63)!

Only a few moments later after his most recent WR improvement, Matthias also tried his hands on MR, which was in Dans hands aswell. He was able to get this one back too, with a 1'27"85, which beats

Dan by the smallest amount! However, Dan was able to get it back just in time before the update, and pushed it by 0"04 seconds more to a 1'27"81 (NTSC: 1'13"03)!

But this is not the end, the jungle was on MRs target list aswell! DKJP 3lap was one of his other victims and puts William Lacey to 0 WRs again. The new time is a 2'12"67 (NTSC: 1'50"34), another one which beats the old WR by 0"02 (0"01 in NTSC).

And the next WR also beats the old one by 0"01. It was Becks only WR on KD 3lap which fell just a few days later. The new time is a 2'04"23 (NTSC: 1'43"32)! This puts Matthias up to 15/16 3lap WRs!!


Non-SC Movement

Matthias Rustemeyer, the MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion had a fantastic half this time with 4 new world records, the most in a long while! Getting back a few of the lost WRs from Dan and finally getting back the KD and DK WRs. His AF dropped under the 1.1 mark again and he is almost on his lowest AF again!
#2 (2) Daniel Burbank however lost his 2 WRs from last time on WS, but was able to successfully defend MR 3lap. He lost some AF tho, but is still close to the sub 3 mark.
#3 (3) Beck Abney hit a single MMF 3lap PR and defends his #3 spot. Dan is still too far away and more PRs are needed to catch up.
#15 (15) Michael Arends, Dutch #3 hit a new FS improvement, coming from #40 to #12, almost hit's the TOP10! This PR allowed him to finally pass Jeff for the AF TOP15 spot! Trystan is not too far away, but aiming for #13 will be a tough challenge.
#62 63) Jayden Ly sent us 3 new PRs on KD flap, CM 3lap and RRy flap. All of them cut around 15 ranks and helped him to cut a total of 1.4 AF points. Jayden also hit the KD flap GOD, his 11th Non-SC GOD time. In AF he didn't pass anyone, in the WRL however he passed Rune Stubhaug for the 62nd place.
#99 (96) Dan Edeen, our newest TOP100 member sent us a new BB dual improvement to stabilize his TOP100 position. A new double digit time for the 3lap and a on spot TOP100 time for the flap helped him to cut exactly 1 point and pass 2 players, one of them being Vincent van der Fluit, a legendary MKDD (and poker!) player. Vincents time in the TOP100 could soon be over, as more players from above target the mighty TOP100. So does #113 (113) James Farrell-Shaw, who is hungry for more. 3 PRs on KTB flap and BC dual were enough to cut 0.9 AF points and pass 2 more players. 18 points are needed to reach the 100th spot, and it's looking good with the progress he makes!
#165 (166) Mike Gaydeski sent us 8 new records on FS, CM and WS dual, MR flap and SL 3lap. 6 of those times are new TOP200 times, his FS flap is even a new Legend time! Mike passed 13 players with a nice 11.1 AF cut, and the next rank promotion is not too far away either.
#192 (198) Hans Jorgen Follevaag sent us 15 new times this half, with a lot of new TOP200 times and 2 new King times. It was enough to get him a rank promotion to King D. He passed 13 players with a 16 AF point cut.
#322 (320) Michael Ferraro improved 7 times across all cups, his timeset looks still really unbalanced. With his latest improvements he got a new DK 3lap which is ranked #111, while his worst time in this submission is ranked #377, TT 3lap. Michael passed 10 players with a 11.7 AF cut.
#328 (331) Gerard Seinstra hit 11 new records, with slightly smaller cuts than Michael. He hit a few nice times, including eliminating two Semi Pro times and getting a new King time on RRy 3lap. He passed 9 players with a 8.1 AF point cut.

SC Movement

#8 (8) Daniel Lunczer beat his YV flap time by surprise and got a nice 6 spot cut with a sub 7 flap! He didn't pass anyone, but he is coming closer to pass Alex G. for the German title. Keep it up Dan!
#157 (153) James Farrell-Shaw sent us 5 new improvements for his timeset and was able to cut a good 6 AF points off his AF. he passed 8 players and is closing in to the TOP150.

Seems activity goes up again...

- POW updates - 2 for the price of 1! -
by Kyle at 9:14 am

Hey guys, finally got around to handing out POW awards. It's been a long wait, so let's get right to it.

August:

Week 1
The first week started off with a bang, as Mike Gaydeski had a huge week. His 15 PR, 64.5 AF cut was enough for him to pass 46 people, and move him from Elite F to Elite C.

Week 2
Aljoscha Schneider of Germany wins this weeks award with 11 PRs cutting 16 AF. Only a few more PRs until we see Aljoscha in the TOP200, keep it up!

Week 3
The third weeks award goes to Mike Gaydeski after another strong week. He was efficient this half, as he turned only 13 PRs into a 15% AF cut, allowing him to pass 45 players in the process. At this rate, Mike should be in the TOP200 by the end of the month!

Week 4
Mike Gaydeski picks up another award this month, as he certainly is flying through the ranks! Passing another 25 players this week, Mike became our newest King F! Congrats to him!

POM
A fairly simple decision here, Mike Gaydeski nearly sweeps the whole month of August. A brand new timeset with 32 PRs sent in allowed him to cut 40% of his AF and move him past 134 players. He also was promoted a whole standard over the month, as he moved from Elite F to King F. The only thing he wasn't able to manage this month was TOP200 on the overall charts, but that should come very shortly...


September:

Week 1
The first week of this month belonged to Dan Edeen. Dan set 12 PRs, with many of them being new Legend or TOP100 times. He was able to pass 7 players this week, and is sitting on the verge of TOP100!

Week 2
A bit of a down week in terms of activity, but that didn't stop Jayden Ly from winning this weeks award. 2 PRs was all he sent in, but both at LR and both being new GOD times is what won him this award.

Week 3
Another week, another new name etched in the POW record books. This weeks new winner was Cole Horan, who used 19 new PRs to win it. He was able to pass 17 players using 9% AF cut.

Week 4
The final week of the month was a great one for Gerard Seinstra. The Dutchman had 15 PRs, which was enough for him to cut 48 AF and pass 48 players en route to Elite F status.

POM
This month's award goes to someone that didn't even win a POW... How crazy is that? Anyways, Mike Gaydeski is this months top player, as he sent us 22 new non-sc PRs that allowed him to pass 33 players and enter the TOP200! But what separated him from the pack was his contributions to the SC charts, as he filled in all his times and placed 75th on those charts as a King F. Great month for Mike, keep it up!

POQ
This was a very tough award to give out. We saw quite a few players have a good quarter, namely Mike G., Dan B., Dan E. But at the end of the day, there's one acheivement that reigns supreme and deserves the recognition it shall receive. He set 3 non-sc PRs (although he moved down to 3rd on the overall rankings), as well as 5 on the SC side for a total of 1 new WR. But let's be honest, there's one particular reason he won this award, and that's because he's the new Shortcut Champion of Mario Kart 64 (and by doing so in style, might I add). That's right, the title of top player of the quarter belongs to Beck Abney, and deservedly so! Congrats to Beck!

Well, that's all for now. Hopefully next month I won't be so lazy and actually have these out on time. Until then, happy karting!

- September 2nd half - 4th Quarter of the year -
by Chraizy at 4:48 pm

Hey guys, it's Chris! The end of year is coming closer and activity seems to be getting fired up again!

New Players

Matthew O'Donnell Thomas joined our site with a double LR submission which is ranked not too badly in the Master area.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank hit 2 new WRs. The first was the WS flap, which was an improvement of Matthias' old flap. Matthias replied with another WR improvement, but Dan quickly fought back and pushed the flap down by more than 0"15 seconds in total to a 1'26"12 (NTSC: 1'11"62)!

The 3lap didn't wait too long after that and Dan quickly added another WR to his collection. With a 0"26 second improvement Dan was the first person to sub 4'21 (and 3'37 in NTSC!) on WS and is leading the leaderboard with a 4'20"90 (NTSC: 3'36"98)!

On the NTSC side we have a new WR by Beck Abney, who was able to beat the old MMF flap WR by 0.01 seconds. The new WR is a 23"27 (PAL: 27"98)!

Non-SC Movement

Matthias Rustemeyer, the MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champion hit a new double PR on WS. He tried to get the WRs back which Dan has claimed, but he wasn't able to do it. He lost a bit of AF here and is now sitting on a 1.219 AF.
#2 (2) Daniel Burbank also hit a dual PR on WS and had a nice chance to improve his AF closer to the sub 3. His previous 3lap was ranked 2nd and his flap was ranked 3rd, so 3 spots have been gained and helped him to save 0.09 AF points. He increased his WR counter to 6 with those 2 WRs.
#17 (17) Marcos Vinicius Alves woke up from a slumber and showed us that he's still alive, being able to PR. With 4 new records on MMF and KTB dual he was able to cut a nice chunk off of his AF. 1.5 points helped him to repass Chris Wild for the 17th spot in the WRL and Michael Arends is not too far away, 0.9 more points are needed to catch up with him.
#31 (30) Frankie Morgan sent us a single KTB 3lap improvement which went from 38th to 29th and helped him to cut 0.27 AF points.
#49 (47) Jake Walter hit a new FS 3lap time which was a nice 0.22 seconds improvement to his previous time and helped him to jump from 60th to 52nd. He passed Joe Bernier for the 47th spot in AF.
#61 (59) Darius Austin sent us 3 new PRs on SL dual and YV 3lap. SL 3lap hit the TOP100 and almost even the TOP50 and is a new GOD time. The flap followed and also hit a nice time close to the TOP50 and is another GOD in the collection. YV 3lap was improvement from #124 to #74 and erased his last remaining King time! Darius passed 3 players with a 4.1 AF cut and was able to jump right into the Legend A area!
#63 (63) Jayden Ly hit a new WS flap which went from 61st to 46th. A nice improvement which gave him a 0.3 AF cut.
#99 (98) Dan Edeen hit 4 new records on KTB, which was a smaller improvement from #134 to #123, KD flap which is a new TOP100 time at 91st, TT flap which moved up 4 ranks to 131st and DK flap which was also a new TOP100 time, barely landing in the double digit ranks at 99th. Dan passed 4 players and was able to hit the legendary TOP100 in the progress! His ARR also improved to Legend D.
#170 (173) Cole Horan sent us 19 new records for a nice 18 AF point cut. He passed 15 players and hit the King C ranks. Cole hit 2 new Legend times and erased 5 Elite times out of his timeset.
#176 (179) Mike Gaydeski had a few big improvements to report. 16 new records, 15 of them are new TOP200 times, are in his collection and helped him to cut 24 AF points. He passed 29 players and comfortably reached the TOP200! In ARR he was able to jump from King F directly to King C, completely leaving the King D ranks behind.
#210 (211) Hans Jorgen Follevaag hit 12 new PRs across all cups and cut 13.3 AF points. He had a few bigger improvements to report, the biggest being his KTB flap going from #244 to #183. He passed 9 players and is closing in to the TOP200.
#333 (330) Michael Ferraro hit 9 new records and was able to stay in front of #336 (340) Gerard Seinstra, who was very close behind him in the last update. Michael extended his lead by a few points more, cutting 54 AF points compared to Gerards 48 AF cut. However, Michael had 2 missing times to report, he sent us his RRd times to complete his timeset and land directly on number 330 in the AF charts. Gerard, only 10 spots behind can catch up with the next update, as he also got a few strong improvements. Both joined the Elite F rankings this half!


SC Movement

#70 (75) Mike Gaydeski improved 4 PRs namely TT dual, WS 3lap and DK flap. All of them made the jump into the TOP100 and helped him to get a nice 5 AF point cut to pass 8 players on the list and join the TOP75 with ease. His ARR also improved and he is our newest King F player!

That's it for this time! Hope you enjoyed it :)

- September 1st half - aaaand another one! -
by Chraizy at 9:30 am

Hey guys, it's Chris! Not delayed, as I came back earlier. So be ready for almost due news!

New Players

Michael Ferraro joined our site with 30 times, only missing the RRd dual times. He debuts at #385. SC: #430.
Mike Gaydeski joins the SC rankings this half with a complete timesheet, placing him really high in the ranks at #83. He already hit 2 GOD times on RRd with a successful spiral jump, so there's probably nice SC potential coming!

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Well, normally you would see some epic World Records here, but as you can see, you can see nothing... except for those sentences that represent absolutely no WRs at all :^)

Shortcut

I mean, there was really not a single WR. What a shame!

Non-SC Movement

#2 (2) Daniel Burbank hit a new WS 3lap improvement. It was a small PR so he didn't gain any ranks, only his 3lap total was affected by his PR.
#8 (7) Daniel Lunczer hit a new MMF flap PR and was able to successfully sub the 28 seconds mark. It was a jump from #8 to #6 and helped him to get his AF under the 8.5 mark!
#31 (31) Frankie Morgan hit 4 new PRs. One new GOD time has been achieved and... wait! Isn't this... the last missing GOD time? It definitely is! Frankie has reached the last GOD standard on WS flap by tying the standard and it makes him officially the 23rd GOD player! His other 3 PRs on KTB 3lap (#52 -> #38), KD flap (#41 -> #37) and YV 3lap (#42 -> #29) helped him to close the gap to #30 by passing Finn for the 31st spot. 0.3 points are left to beat Tuomas and to throw him out of the TOP30!
#33 (34) Patrick Blank hit 3 new records on TT dual and WS 3lap. WS 3lap missed the GOD standard barely by 0"02 seconds and TT 3lap, even though it reached the Legend A ranks, also isn't too far away from the GOD time now. Patrick cut 0.7 AF points and is closing in to Stefan who sits 1.1 AF points away.
#49 (48) Jake Walter hit 2 PRs this time with a new RRy 3lap which was a new GOD time and a BC 3lap that jumped from Legend B to Legend A. The BC 3lap was also a new TOP50 and with those two PRs he was able to pass the No-R Master Maurice Fleer for the 48th spot.
#63 (63) Jayden Ly hit 3 PRs on MMF dual and RRy 3lap. MMF was a new dual GOD, with the 3lap barely missing the TOP50 at #52 while the flap made the big jump from #83 to #48! His RRy was a smaller cut but still made it into the TOP80. The overall cut of 1.7 AF points helped him to pass Nathan Stinson and MKDD #2 Richard Karlsson.
#91 (91) Brent Wingert hit a new dual PR on FS and provided us two new TOP100 times. His times are ranked Legend C and Legend B, the flap not being too far away from the GOD. Brent passed 2 players with his 1.6 AF cut and is getting closer to a rank promotion.
#103 (102) Dan Edeen hit 12 new PRs across all cups, with 4 new Legend times on MMF 3lap, MR and RRy 3laps and RRd flap. His Legend counter is now at 23, with only 9 times still remaining in the King ranks. Dan hit 5 new TOP100 times and got a few really nice cuts overall which resulted into a 10.8 AF points cut to boost him 7 ranks up the charts. The TOP100 is getting closer and closer, with his recent cuts he missed it by exactly one rank! 2 players occupy the barrier right now, so one PR that cuts at least 2 ranks kicks 2 persons out of the TOP100!
#196 (198) Alexander Schiller hit a new DK flap which subbed the 45 seconds barrier in PAL and gave him a new TOP200 time. His time is a King C rank and with this PR alone he was able to pass 3 players and reach the TOP200!
#204 (208) Mike Gaydeski hit a few nice times on LR dual, MR 3lap, RRy, YV and RRd flaps. 3 of his times are new TOP200 times and with his new PRs he was able to cut 9 AF points to overcome the bigger AF gaps that lied in front of him. Mike passed 3 karters and is on his way to the TOP200.
#218 (229) Hans Jorgen Follevaag sent us a total of 6 new PRs on LR and CM dual and RRy and YV 3laps. All of them cut around 30 ranks and especially his YV stood out with a jump from #295 -> #224. His cuts were enough to let him pass 5 players with a solid 5.5 AF cut. He also made the jump out of the Elite A ranks and is our newest King F player. Congratulations!
#707 (757) Taylor Fankhauser hit 6 new PRs aswell and improved a lot of his times that were outside the TOP600. LR, WS and RRd dual were the new times, and LR dual made the biggest jump, both reaching the TOP500. Taylor passed 31 players with a nice 17.6 AF point cut.


SC Movement

#51 (54) Patrick Blank was the highest and ONLY active SC player this half with a new CM 3lap PR which was a 4"4 seconds cut to help him pass 19 players on the charts. A nice 0.7 AF cut was the result of it and helped him to close the gap to thew few player above him and the TOP50.


That's it for this time. Quite the low activity but I guess for many people the summer break is over now and they need to study/work again. However, wish you guys the best!

- August 2nd half - when Items get important -
by Chraizy at 4:08 am

Hey guys, it's Chris! Not much to say, so let's go straight to the news!

New Players

Jay Nguyen joined our site with 7 times ranked in the TOP300 area. His debuting rank is #830.

World Records

No.

Non-SC Movement

The highest active non-SC player was Matthias Rustemeyer who set a new YV flap to gain a bit of his AF back that he lost due to Dans recent WR. He is still above the 1.1 mark as recent activity made him lose quite a few WRs.
#2 (2) Daniel Burbank played some BC 3lap and cut a few hundreths off his time. He didn't gain any ranks and maintains his position for now.
#8 (7) Daniel Lunczer beat his CM times this half with a 0"1 cut for the 3lap and a 0"02 cut for the flap. Both reached #7 on the ranks and helped him to reduce his AF by 0.09 points to bring him to 8.5 points.
#15 (16) Michael Arends was able to reach the TOP15 in the WRL with his most recent PR on BC 3lap! A nice cut of 0"4 seconds helped him to reach 11th on the charts there and cut 0.25 points. In AF he is still 0.6 AF points behind Jeff, but seeing his progress it shouldn't take too long anymore either!
#32 (32) Frankie Morgan worked on his WS times and was able to cut a good junk of his 3lap and make it jump from Legend C all the way up to his 31st GOD time in Non-SC! Only the flap, which he improved aswell is missing now, sitting at Legend A, only 0"1 seconds away from the milestone! Frankie passed one person with a nice 1.4 AF cut and is closing in to the TOP30 which requires another 1.4 AF cut.
#34 (34) Patrick Blank hit a new CM 3lap time and passed 3 players on the charts there. He maintains his position for now.
#50 (50) David Moll hit a new small KTB PR which went from 64th to 62nd. It was actually enough to make him get the TOP50 rank in the WRL!
#64 (65) Jayden Ly hit 2 new records on KD and RRd flap. KD was a small cut and baaarely missed the GOD time here! RRd was also a small PR but gained him 5 spots and made him cut 0.16 AF points.
#78 (76) Patrick Hewson beat his YV PRs and gained a new Legend time on the 3lap. His time went from 115 -> 90 on the 3lap and 117 -> 91 on the flap. Both are new TOP100 times as you can see, only his BC times and RRy 3lap are left outside the TOP100. Patrick passed 2 players and is coming very close to reach the TOP75 in AF!
#94 (93) Brent Wingert hit a new FS flap time which was a small 0"03 cut. It helped him to pass 3 players on the charts there, and gained him a small amount of AF.
#110 (109) Dan Edeen hit 4 new times on KD, TT, YV and RRd 3laps. KD and YV saw nice improvements, TT and RRd were a bit smaller, but nice improvements nonetheless! His YV time is a new Legend and also a new TOP100 time. His 2.6 AF cut was enough to pass Kris Will and Beau Fairbourn on the rankings.
#120 (120) Lewis Richards hit 4 new PRs aswell on LR and SL 3laps and TT and BC flaps. All of them reached the TOP150 with ease and made him cut 3.1 AF points to pass 3 players. His best improvement was definitely LR going from 161st to 127th!
#140 (141) Anastasia Steingold kept playing her favorite track FS and was able to get a pair of fairly strong times up! The 3lap is a new TOP100 time at 92nd and the flap also made the jump into the TOP100 at 90th. Both of them are her first TOP100 times, quite a nice achievment!
#200 (199) Aljoscha Schneider set 9 new records across all cups and was able to join the TOP200 with his 8.2 AF point cut! He set 3 new King times and also improved MR flap to the Legend ranks! LR 3lap was a new TOP200 time and his ARR improved from King F to King D!
#209 (211) Mike Gaydeski set 26 new records over the last half month and hit quite a few nice improvements! 4 new TOP200 times, outstanding are his RRd cuts from 326th to 197th and the flap from 380th to 165th! He hit a lot of new King times and was able to leave the Elite B ranks to join the King F ranks with ease! In AF he was able to pass 69 players with a very nice 75 AF point cut.
#222 (225) Hans Jorgen Follevaag hit 17 new times with 5 new King times and a new TOP200 time. He was able to cut 19.2 AF points and passed 17 players. His ARR rank barely missed the King ranks, but it's something to aim for the next time.
#243 (250) Tyler Chambers hit 5 new PRs on MMF, MR, SL flaps and RRy dual. MMF was a new King time and helped him to gain the Elite A ranking in ARR! His 3.8 AF cut was enough to pass 3 players and reach the TOP250 on spot!
#485 (493) Sam Smith hit 5 new records on TT 3lap and RRY and DK dual. Both RRy times are new Elite times and his DK times went from Expert to Semi Pro level. He passed 15 players with a 16 AF cut and his ARR improved from Semi Pro D to Semi Pro C.
#583 (622) Sean Bartz hit a new double PR on Yoshi Valley with a 3lap that went from 644th to 550th and the flap went from 696th to 634th. He passed 7 players with a 4.5 AF cut.


SC Movement

The highest active SC player was #53 (54) Patrick Blank who got 2 new records on TT and CM flap. TT 3lap was a new TOP20 time and the flap is coming closer to the TOP10 and GOD time. He cut 1.3 AF points and is closing in to the next rank.
#71 (75) Lewis Richards hit 2 new RRy times which improved quite a few ranks. His flap went from 120th to 68th and also reached the King C ranks. Lewis passed 4 players with a 3 AF points cut.

That's it for now! Be ready for a nice surprise at the next update... hehe... hehehe........ ok.

Let's get on with the news:

New Players

Non-SC Movement

#2 (2) Daniel Burbank had an awesome start in August by firing out 5 new PRs on TT dual, DK and YV flap and BB 3lap. He cut a total of 8 ranks, resulting into a 0.25 AF and increasing the distance to Beck to 0.5 points. He hit 4 new TOP3 times in the progress and is now 2.2 AF points behind Matthias.

#35 (33) Frankie Morgan hit a new TT 3lap time getting rid of one of the harder 3lap GODs with a clear sub 2'30 ranked 29th! He maintains his rank, but is only 0.8 behind Stefan Kok, our current worst GOD.
#51 (50) David Moll hit 4 new PRs on LR, MMF and DK flaps and also beat his KTB 3lap. LR and MMF saw strong cuts, coming from 69th and 65th going down to 48th and 43rd. His KTB looks solid and is closing in to the GOD rank, sitting at Legend A currently. He passed 3 players and was able to get a spot in the TOP50 with his 1.7 AF cut. Congratz on your second MK TOP50 position!
#63 (62) Darius Austin hit a new BB 3lap time. It was a nice 0"7 second cut and helped him to reach the GOD time here! It's his 14th GOD time and also pushed his ARR a little bit closer to Legend A. He cut 0.7 AF points and maintained his rank.
#64 (65) Jayden Ly hit 6 new records on LR 3lap, MMF, MR and SL flaps and TT dual. The SL flap was a new GOD time and MMF and TT flaps both are at Legend A. A lot of nice improvements have been done, the best rank being TT 3lap ranked 48th. Jayden passed 2 players with a 3.3 AF cut, getting closer to Darius aswell.
#78 (78) Patrick Hewson sent us a new YV flap time which was a 0"08 second improvement over his old time. He got a small AF cut of 0.06 and maintains his position for now.
#112 (111) Dan Edeen hit 3 new records on MMF, FS and BB flaps. All of them saw good cuts of 40 and more ranks, the biggest on FS, going from 154th to 88th! MMF and BB were new Legend times aswell. Dan passed 5 players with a nice 4.75 AF cut and is closing in to the TOP100.
#206 (207) Aljoscha Schneider hit 24 new PRs which resulted into a 31 AF point cut. He passed 22 players and came one step closer to the TOP200. His ARR also improved from Elite A to King F, making him the newest King player! He also achieved 2 new Legend times on MMF flap and FS flap.
#212 (213) Ben Stoneman hit a new MMF 3lap and improved it further down from 139th to 117th. He's closing in to the sub 1'30 and the TOP100 here and reached King A. He passed one player, but got passed by Aljoscha, so he remains at the same rank.
#247 (253) Tyler Chambers hit 6 new PRs, KD and MR flap and WS and SL dual. All of them saw decent cuts and he hit 2 new TOP300 times. Tyler hit a new King time on KD flap and came close on WS flap. He passed 7 players with a 6.2 AF cut and is super close to the TOP250!
#279 (280) Mike Gaydeski hit 21 new records mainly on the first 3 cups with solid cuts especially on MMF and CM! MMF 3lap was a massive cut (#494 -> #201) and CM also got improved by a lot (#388 -> #277). He improved many of his Semi-Pro and Pro times into the Elite ranks and jumped from Elite F to Elite B overall! In AF, he passed 71 players with a 74 AF point cut.
#383 (387) Gerard Seinstra sent us 8 new PRs mainly for Mushroom and Flower Cups. A few of his weaker times saw nice cuts into the TOP300 and his AF rose by 15 points, making him the newest TOP400 member by passing 17 players! His ARR also improved from Pro A to Master F in the progress.
#501 (506) Sam Smith demolished almost his entire timesheet, only missing the LR flap improvement. A lot of his non TOP700 times have entered the TOP600 now and resulted into a massive cut for his AF, netting a 144 AF point cut! He passed 182 people with it and is close to the TOP500! His ARR improved from Advanced B to Semi Pro D.


SC Movement

#3 (3) Greg Ihnatenko continued playing YV since the meet and finally hit the time he wanted to get! It didn't affect his AF though, as he got beaten by another player...
...which is #8 (8) Daniel Lunczer, who set 5 new PRs for TT dual, CM dual and YV flap. His CM saw strong cuts as his first Weathertenko hit made a sub 10 lap possible! The 3lap is down at 4th and the flap at 8th, making it 2 new TOP10 times. All in all Dan cut 0.7 AF points and is closing in to german SC champ Alex G.!
#12 (12) Jake Walter hit a new MR flap with a nice 0"07 cut to pass 5 players on the charts. It was a nice 0.2 AF cut and helped him to close the gap to Ben Miller to 1.5 AF points.
#38 (43) Christian Wild hit a new small FS improvement, which was enough to jump almost 100 ranks with only a 0"1 cut on the flap! This PR alone helped him to pass 6 players and cut 4.4 AF points.
#53 (54) Patrick Blank, Germanys #6 in SC, was able to hit a new KD flap, which was not only a 0"4 second improvement, but also a new GOD time! He cut 0.5 AF points and passed one player in the progress.

That's it for the beginning of August! Let's see if we see more WRs through the rest of August!

- July POWs - by a fraaaaaaame -
by Kyle at 2:01 pm

Hey guys, time for another POW update. For those of you that are interested in viewing some highlights from the European meetup, Matthias posted a few videos on the forums, so head there to watch those. Without further delay, here's the POW awards for July.

July:

Week 1
Jayden Ly checking in yet again, winning the first POW award for the 2nd half of the year. He used 10PRs to cut 6% of his AF and pass 7 players. Jayden's most impressive time this week was MR 3lap, which is a new GOD for him. Keep up the good work!

Week 2
This week saw a newer name win the award, as Hans Jorgen Follevaag wins his first honor. Hans had a great week, cutting 18% of his AF to pass 55 people. A great week for the Norwegian, as he moved up to Elite A in the process.

Week 3
This week would be quite the toss up, but in the end the award goes to fellow newswriter Christian Wild. Chris had a good week on the nonsc side, with 5 PRs helping him pass 3 people to reach the TOP20. But the SC stuff he did is what clinches the POW for him, as Chris was able to use 6 new PRs to pass 10 people, cutting an efficient 12 AF in the process. Those big cuts included 2 new GOD times. Way to go Chris!

Week 4
The final week of the month was also hotly contested. Honorable mention deserves to go out to Patrick Blank and Christian Wild. They both had great weeks at the European meetup, and would have been in contention for POW any other week. But this was a total non decision, as Beck Abney takes the awards thanks to one huge milestone... New Shortcut Champion! After months of grinding, Beck was finally able to break through and past Vincent. Only 2 PRs this week, which shows how close he was, but he took over the top spot in style, with an impressive RRy that would take the World Record by a fraaaaaame. Congrats are in order for Beck! :)

POM
Lots of tremendous achievements this month, but the top player was Christian Wild. Chris sent us 13 nonsc and 9 sc PRs, and he would improve his nonsc rank to #17 and his sc rank to #49. He cut about 2 AF points and 6% on the nonsc side, 16.5 AF points and 20% on the sc side. As you can see, Chris had an impressive month and deserves this award.

Well that's it for this month. Meet back here again next month to read about some more impressive cuts in the mario kart world! Cya!

- July 2nd half - F I N A L L Y -
by Chraizy at 12:12 pm

Hey guys, it's Chris. Again, we have a new category champ! This time it was a reign of the SC crown. It ended with the end of the month July 2016: Beck Abney took the crown! More details in the SC section!

Also, special shoutouts to everyone who made the 4th MK64 Meet in Solingen happen! It's one of the best weeks in the year and definitely would be a shame if it wouldn't be organized. Thanks!

Ok, let's see what happened:

New Players

Aaron Morgan joined our site with a complete timeset at #610.

World Records

Non-Shortcut

Daniel Burbank hit two WR improvements which untied Matthias, who lost 2 WRs with it. Both were on MR, first with a 3lap improvement of 0"03 seconds. The new time is a 1'27"86 (NTSC: 1'13"07)!
The flap went down by one hundreth and helped him to untie this one aswell. The time is a 27"67 (NTSC: 23"01)! SO close to the NTSC sub!
Matthias Rustemeyer had a go at his own CM WR and was able to improve it. The new time is a 1'56"08 (NTSC: 1'36"54)! Also a close PAL sub, and it's possible, as a live performance showed some clear weaknesses in this run. Can he do it?

Shortcut

Vincent Tolhuis beat Gregs WR on RRy by a tenth, improving it to a 1'59"53. Beck Abney had a go at RRy aswell, with best splits at the start of the session which could barely tie the WR. However, something crazy happened and he was able to cut over 1.5 seconds with an absolutely insane run. He beat Vincent by a frame with a heart throbbing run: the new time is a 1'59"49 (NTSC: 1'39"38)!!

Non-SC Movement

MK64 Non-SC Time Trial Champ Matthias Rustemeyer had a go at CM which he didn't play since he achieved the WR. He improved his own WR, but didn't gain any ranks of it.
#2 (2) Daniel Burbank had 5 PRs to report, mainly gaining some total time cuts. Only RRy gave him a small one rank cut as he jumped from #3 to #2 with his 0.22 seconds cut. DK saw the sub 2'13 and both MR WR ties have been untied by him, which caused a 0.06 AF loss to Matthias! Those PRs were enough to pass Beck in the WRL and become the deserved #2!
#3 (3) Beck Abney had a small cut on MR flap to gain one rank. He didn't gain any AF due to AF fluctutations, but he's safe at his spot currently.
#8 (7) Daniel Lunczer had a go at MR 3lap and cut a small amount of time. He maintains his rank for now.
#16 (16) Michael Arends beat his BC 3lap time which was among his weakest times. Jumping from #41 to #20 gives him a nice cut of 0.5 AF points, coming as close as 1 AF point to Jeff. The TOP15 is near! It's also his 18th TOP20 time, only 14 to go!
#17 (18) Christian Wild had massive success at the MK64 Meet in Solingen with 13 new PRs which helped him to pass 5 players with a 1.8 AF cut. A few of his weakest times got improved and also 3 new TOP15s have been achieved. He made the jump into the TOP20 in AF, and also evened out the messed up 3lap totals which was quite weak compared to the flaps.
#18 (17) Marcos Vinicius Alves hit 2 new MR PRs with a cut of 0"15 seconds for the 3lap and a small 0"02 cut for the flap. He went from #10 -> #7 on the 3lap and #14 -> #12 on the flap. He only gained 0.03 AF points though as the people around him caused massive AF losses.
#35 (33) Frankie Morgan played some TT and BB 3laps and had quite successful times to report. TT went from #50 -> #37 and BB from #51 -> #24! 1 AF point has been improved and helped him to get a step closer to Stefan Kok, who sits another 1.1 AF points away.
#38 (38) Patrick Blank had a massive PR spree at the MK64 Meet with barely sleeping and maximum playing! 16 new PRs have been achieved, a total of 5 new GOD times, which puts his GOD counter up to 25! A lot of small cuts, but also a few really big cuts have been achieved like a SL improvement from #57 to #22! In total he cut 6.9 AF points and passed 4 players to easily conquer a spot in the TOP40! Way to go!
Fellow german #45 (43) Leif Christian Tode hit not as many PRs, but 8 are still a nice collection of PRs to report. He was able to achieve the LR flap GOD and also hit several nice improvements, mainly on flaps. Only SL and BC 3laps are 3lap improvements. BC saw the sub 2'15, and WS flap went down to sub 1'28. Leif passed 3 players with a total cut of nearly 3 AF points.
#53 (53) David Moll had a few successful runs to report. 5 PRs helped him to pass 3 more players with a 1.5 AF cut. Those PRs were on FS 3lap, BB and RRd dual. BB saw a total of 26 ranks cut, while RRd had a total cut of 21 ranks. The RRd flap is a new TOP50 time, his 7th to be exact. BB flap was a new GOD time, currently his 14th GOD time. David is on a good way to the Legend+ ranks now. His timeset is really balanced, all of them range between 44th and 72nd. 1.2 more AF points should help him to break into the TOP50!
Retired Newswriter #63 (62) Darius Austin hit a new BB 3lap time. A cut of 0"55 seconds helped him to break into the TOP100 here at 78th. His AF cut of 0.3 points wasn't enough to get him a rank up, but he gained a spot in the WRL, where he's currently ranked 63rd.
#67 (67) Jayden Ly hit 11 new PRs, with 2 new GODs to report on KD 3lap and DK flap. He got 7 total GODs now, almost a quarter done. Jayden had a few nice cuts, his best PR in this submission clearly the KD 3lap, which went from 70th to 43rd. But also FS saw a big cut from 99th to 55th. In total he passed 9 players with a nice 7.7 AF cut. He also improved his ARR from Legend C to Legend B.
#73 (71) Kyle Begley hit 5 new PRs on KD 3lap, TT dual, FS and RRy 3lap. KD was a new TOP100 time and TT has been improved into the double digit ranks. FS 3lap was his biggest PR in this submission with a 0"66 seconds improvement, coming from 87th going all the way down to 55th! He passed 2 players with a 2 AF points cut and also achieved the Legend B rank in ARR!
#118 (116) Dan Edeen also hit 5 new PRs on KTB and BC 3lap and KD, BB and RRd flaps. KD flap was his biggest PR with a 40 ranks cut up to 124th. It was also a new Legend time for him. And speaking of Legend - his ARR improved from King A to Legend F, making him our newest Legend player! Currently the 118th Legend player. Dan cut 3.1 AF points and passed 3 players.
#137 (136) Kyle Labelle ALSO hit 5 PRs, on MMF and KTB 3laps, CM flap and RR dual. MMF and KTB saw massive cuts, both worth 80 ranks! MMF was a new Legend time aswell. CM, already being a TOP100 time went down 35 ranks more to 64th and makes it his strongest time. Kyle scored a 7.8 AF cut and passed 3 players with it. The next few players are pretty close together, so a similar cut should bring him a clearly bigger cut in AF ranks. On top of that, he also achieved the King A rank!
#211 (213) Ben Stoneman had 7 new PRs to report, with 5 new King times and a really strong improvement on MMF flap! It went from 163rd to 80th, barely missing the GOD rank, sitting at Legend A! It's his strongest time and also his first TOP100! Apart from that, he also improved the 3lap here, a new KD dual PR and CM, RRy and BC flaps also have been improved. A total cut of 10 points helped him to pass 5 players. In ARR, he was able to leave the Elite A ranks and joined the Kings!
#221 (226) Christopher Lange, a good friend of Matthias, hit a new PR on YV flap, which was a nice cut of 0"4 seconds. It helped him to jump 28 ranks and pass 2 players on the AF ranks. He could definitely get a lot higher under Matthias's hand, but it's his decision if he wants it or not! For now, he's closing in to the TOP200.
#308 (311) Alex Losego hit 10 new PRs across all cups, mainly improving his Flower Cup times with everything except CM being improved. He improved his times that were outside the TOP400 and 300 and gained 4 new TOP300 times. He passed 26 players with a nice 25.7 AF point cut and also jumped to Elite C in the progress!
#377 (382) Stephen Weber hit 4 new PRs to continue his MK64 adventures. MMF, SL and DK 3laps and BB flap got improved, with a really strong improvement on MMF as his best PR in this submission. It went from 432nd to 286th, giving him another TOP300 time. He passed 6 players with those PRs, which resulted in a 8.5 AF cut.


SC Movement

Beck Abney was the highest active player this time. And it doesn't matter who else was active, he will still remain as the highest active, as 2 new PRs helped him to reach the SC crown after conquering the Universal crown! Vincents reign lasted incredibly long, 9.5 years in PAL to be exact. The overall reign lasted well over 5.5 years and is now over. Beck spent so much time and put so much power into this, it is deserved. I don't think we will see Vincent just letting it be as it is and we will probably see a fightback! For now, Becks PRs were on WS 3lap with a small 0"11 cut to put him up to #5 there and the crazy RRy 3lap run which was 5th before, but thanks to a 1.5 second cut and his first sub 2 minutes he was able to claim the WR here which was the one to make him champ and cut well over 0.2 AF points! His AF is currently at 2 flat, Vincent only 4 ranks behind.
#2 (2) Vincent Tolhuis also improved the RRy 3lap before, but wasn't able to keep it cause of Beck. He was able to pass Greg here though who previously held the WR. His AF remains the same.
#8 (8) Daniel Lunczer beat 3 of his PRs: LR dual and FS flap. LR flap saw a nice cut from 15th to 7th with a nice 0"8 seconds cut. FS flap also saw a jump from 14th to 9th with a sub 6 flap! Dan cut 0.6 AF points and passed Steven for the 8th spot in AF and WRL.
#46 (49) Christian Wild had 9 new records to report, with a few very nice improvements. 4 new TOP100s have been achieved and a few huge cuts, like a MR cut from #103 -> #36. 3 new GODs are in his collection now which puts him up to 5 SC GODs. He passed 14 players with a massive 16.5 AF cut, easily breaking into the TOP50!
#53 (55) Patrick Blank hit a new RRy flap and a DK flap improvement. RRy was a pretty big cut, coming from 40"75 down to 38"98, which is also a new Legend time! DK saw a smaller cut, but also helped to pass 18 players. He passed 5 players with a 3.4 AF cut.
#353 (308) Kyle Labelle hit 2 times on WS and sent us his first submission for those. He landed well in the TOP200 for the 3lap and close to it for the flap. He passed 78 players with those two PRs.

That's it for this time! Hope you enjoyed the read :)
