    A. no matter what game i decide to pick, like you said there will always be a favored person
    B. Mario Kart Wii is VERY BALANCED...
    back when i played *though i wont be trying when im watching people* i could get Half the track on 2nd place and lower... and then BAM, right before i won 5 blue shells, and 2 reds, and i came in 6th =P
    C. there are REALLY only so many games it can be...
    bleach Versus crusade: 2 players... and a lot of people dont have it
    Bomberman: japan only atm, and i doubt many people will download it just to pay people to play it online
    Call Of Duty: this game is all about nunchuck/mote skill, if you just start playing you will be easily SOL, and its a heavy load game, and not a lot of people play so a lot of DLers *there was only 3 people who posted in the FC topic*
    DBZ: same as Bleach
    guitar hero: too much to ever do it sorry
    fish game: come on xD no one is playing this game
    jikkou: same as bomberman
    hokuto no ken pachinko: only i would be playing and winning =P
    NFL: 1 v 1 =\
    kart
    mario & sonic: wasnt fun enough to get players
    -sick of listing them from here-

    the fact of the matter is its really this or brawl, if this works well then other games might be attempted but AC, and MKW are easy to do...

    in the end, its not gonna change, because theres no way to even it out, but guess what Mario Kart is ALL LUCK, not a ton of skill, because trust me the game is evened well

    Any info on the payment arrangements and/or a general time? I have the OK from my gram to use her card, assuming the fee is $5-10 USD.

    Oh hell yes!!! I would be one of those Mario Kart players...3 stars here! Although I don't want to pay.

    Skype should be set up, also.

    the general idea IE BASIC! concept will be

    found cheating = Ban, from tourny and the forum
    all Karts usable
    all bikes usable
    all stages random no stage favoritism i dont want to see rainbow road picked 20 times, so newer people get screwed to the max, not picking random 3+ times = auto lose
    entry 5 usd to a paypal account

    to enter
    pm or post the name you paid under, your racer name *like im my Case admiral*, friend code, and finally location *so i can keep track of which bracket*

    idea for matchs
    2 different time zones, 1 for like 7 pm est, and one for 5 am est *subject to change based off main region of the foreigners*
    top 3 from each set, advance, then based off how many people 3 or 2, and keep going in that set, till we get 6 or so people in the end, and the top of them = winner

    prizes
    75% of the pot
    special forum title
    and a award

    also i will be doing a 1 week trivia event, the basic idea for that *probly starting tommorow* is...
    ill take a pic of my screen, and the first to get what game is the game in the disc channel, wins but has to do the next game, the person with the final unanswered pic wins, and person with the most right wins something too

    heres exactly why the event isnt free, and that isnt happening as long as im running it =x

    this site has 40,000+ members
    and on average 2,000+ people on a day

    if this contest is free then i got to do every single last person who wants to do this....

    im expecting around 50 *probly MUCH less* to do the pay *which if doesnt get intrest then guess what its gonna get 86ed contest wise in the future*

    if i do free, i see atleast 200, and im not putting in the time do to 200+ people its just too much work and effort
