    Scribble down your Nintendo ID, Skype details (if you want voice-chat) and how often you're likely to be online. If we get enough interest I'll try and arrange some kind of tourney or mini-league :)

    I'll keep a list going on this post (Skype details in brackets).

    Should be online pretty regular but Wed and Sat nights are my preferred nights for some drink driving:D

    Good work Daft Ada, that's the type of enthusiasm we like to see :) Trouble is I'm all excited now and there's too long to wait!

    Not a regular online gamer, but if there are time trial and weekly challenges like MKWii I will regularly take part in those.

    Looks like a good range of features are going to be available, including Voice Chat! Looking forward to running some tourneys and leagues.

    Isn't it just voice chat in the lobby? Best not drop any plans for Skype until in game chat is confirmed. Though hope I'm wrong.

    Regardless, will be great when it's out and we're playing these leagues/tournies. What you thinking first; league? Cup? Or just some get togethers? Or maybe I'm getting too excited.

    Can't wait!

    I think Skype can host 25 people in one audio group call so plenty of room for a real gents night out at the races :)

    Added Prezzy and Cas Fan.

    Skype will still be welcome for in-race chat/slander :)

    Tourneys might be easier to set up at first if we can get everyone together. I was thinking of running a friendly league too, which doesn't need people to play X games per week, but takes into account average placings or something. Anyone else have any thoughts?

    By the way, can the Mods argue the case for a dedicated Mario Kart 8 Online sub-forum a la Titanfall / COD / FIFA etc? It would be handy to have all the MK8 threads in one easy place to keep track of tourneys, leagues, friendlies and things. And MKTV means we can all watch the close races even if we're not available to play them, so a dedicated thread that doesn't clutter up the rest of the game board would be nice.

    What say ye @Honey Badger and @G a f f e r ?

    I'm still pretty chuffed with the chat compromise, better than nothing. Can use Skype for prearranged game nights, and quick on the moment games at least you can speak between(hate to suddenly leave a lobby without being able to thank folks for the games etc. at least).

    I will mention it but don't get your hopes up. It was hard enough getting the games sub forum back.

    Can be on most evenings, a AvF league would be great fun! And time trials comps to see who can be the ruler of the AVF mario kart league!
