Welcome To The NintenDomination Thread!
So, eventually this is where the hot topics will go for the thread (for now, they're just a little bit below this), containing any major news regarding Nintendo, and indeed, in the thread. In the meantime, let's leave this as a short introduction to the thread.
Basically, if you're familar with threads like this one for Playstation, I'm going to be doing something similar. If you aren't, then this will hopefully grow into a thread where people interested in Nintendo gaming, at any level, can talk freely about anything and everything Nintendo-related without the needless "console wars" going around elsewhere. Consider it a safe haven, if you would.
In addition, I'll be posting some news here, and I'll be offering incentives for people to do the same whenever they find any in the thread. Anything major I'll link in the main thread for an appropriate level of time, and everything else will be dumped in the second post for, say, a week for ease of access. Sound simple? I hope so, because it really is!

Consider this a "hall of fame" of the greatest users in the thread. They shall forever have their names and profile pictures (accurate at the time of the addition to the hall of fame) here in this thread. If you want in, you need to get 100 coins in the thread. That's no mean feat, so only the best users come here!
Every single user on this list has made a massive contribution to this thread; and I would be unable to do it without them. So, I thank you all deeply for your assistance! Without further ado, here are the Defenders of NintenDomination:
Mario Kart 8 Ranking Tourney
Next Tourney - Sunday 1st June 4PM BST/11AM EST
Mario Kart 8 is finally here! To celebrate, how about an official ranked Mario Kart 8 Tourney? It'll follow the same general feel as the Mario Kart 7 Tourneys, put in the tourney code, post in here to show you're ready about 10 minutes before it's due to start, wait for my signal to go in, then it's every man for themselves! If something happens which means you can't take part; don't just "not show", please inform me beforehand so we aren't waiting if at all possible. Repeated missing of the tourneys will mean automatic exclusion from any future tourneys, and your points total to be reset to zero.
Most important thing as usual is to have fun, this will be a weekly thing and the performance in this tourney will go towards the official rankings in the Mario Kart 8 thread. So try your best!

Pokemon X/Y Tourney
Next Event: Saturday 10th May 8PM BST/3PM EST - Sunday 11th May
So Pokemon X and Y have been out for quite a while now...so it's about time we have a proper competiton! It's quite simple, really. Just say in the thread that you want to join, along with your friend code (just to first time, I'll save them here after!) and I'll add you to the OP. For this firrst tourney, we'll be doing a round-robin event. Namely, that means everyone will play everyone else, so it should be a level playing field as opposed to what would eventually be the two best players fighting each other straight away. Then, the top 4 or so people (depending on how many people take part, this number could change) will progress further, and the person who won the most will play the person who won the least (who get through, so 4th) and so on, and then the winners here will play each other for overall victory!
Sounds simple, right? Here's some pretty basic restrictions, which are changable if people don't like it. Note however that, if you break one of these rules, you will be immediately removed from the tourney, not allowed to play in future tourneys, and your points total will be reset to zero. So please follow them!
- ALL Pokemon are Level 50
- Banned List:
- Banned Items:
- Six Pokemon each, you can't change these Pokemon after you start the tourney.

Next Event: TBA
To join, merely post in the thread and be online approximately 15 minutes before the tourney is set to begin. You don't need to know any friend codes, merely the community which you will be in for the races! If there are more than 6 entrants, then we will split into 2 groups (Group 1 and Group 2). The top three from these two groups will go forward into the final, where you race the best the site has to offer! If there are 6 or fewer people, then everyone goes straight into the finals!
The tourney will take place if 5 or more people are willing to take part. If not, then it shall be delayed until the following Sunday, where I shall renegotiate timings.
1st- 25 Coins, 3 Stars
2nd- 15 Coins, 2 Stars
3rd- 10 Coins, 1 Star
4th or below- 3 Coins

Here's the current plan. Criticisms and adjustments will be welcomed:
There will be two different rewards, coins and stars. Coins will be obtained for being the first to post news in the thread (1 coin), creating a thread about said news which is featured in the Big News section at the beginning of this thread (5 coins), creating a popular thread about Nintendo (+100 posts, 10 coins), and creating an official thread (25 coins). In addition, there will be one-off occasions in which you can collect coins, such as posting in this thread for the first time (2coins), taking part in an event (3 coins), posting your NNID/Friend Code (3 coins), and others. I'll be keeping track of these in a table which I'll place here, and there will be real prizes for whoever collects the most coins over a period of time (yet to be finalized). I'm thinking maybe an eShop title, in addition to these in-thread rewards:
The stars will be received after completing special events which will happen, hopefully, weekly. These could be anything from challenges, puzzles, games etc. The winner will receive 3 Stars, second will get 2, third will get 1 and everyone else will get 3 coins. Again, whoever has the most stars over a period of time will get a special, real life prize!
I hope that all makes sense. Any questions, just ask!
