    Update

    Change:
    Modification of Rule VI. b.ii. & Addition of Rule VI. b.ix.

    b.ii. If a host is caught with Thundercloud Autofire set to "OFF", Thundercloud Effect set to "Mega", or Host Always Wins Vote set to "ON", their team will be forced to reset the room at the cost of one of their resets (see rule IV. c. for more information). If the host refuses to reset, their team will receive a penalty of 150 points.
    b.ii. If a host is caught with Thundercloud Effect set to "Mega", or Host Always Wins Vote set to "ON", their team will be forced to reset the room at the cost of one of their resets (see rule IV. c. for more information). If the host refuses to reset, their team will receive a penalty of 150 points.
    +
    b.ix. Unless a different setting is mutually agreed upon by both teams, If a host is caught with Thundercloud Autofire set to "OFF" their team will be forced to reset the room at the cost of one of their resets (see rule IV. c. for more information). If the host refuses to reset, their team will receive a penalty of 150 points.

    Due to discussion upon CT Council for Mutual Agreements regarding TC Auto-fire settings, we have decided to implement this change, however this is only for TC Auto-Fire (not to be confused with TC to MEGA).

    Update

    2 tracks have been banned:

    - Alpine Skyway: Various of out of bounds errors have been found within the track, such as going through the clouds when small, and being counted out of bounds on the spiral turn after the ramp.

    - GCN Rainbow Road: If you get bumped before the spiral turn at the end of the track, you'll be falling for a really long time as there is no fall boundary, therefore giving an instant last place to the player who witnesses it.

    Important Update

    Change: Removal of Rules IX. e.-e.viii. Section name also changed to Suicide Bagging & Trolling.

    e. Overlapping
    e.i. Should a player be overlapped, they must, without affecting the other players, move out of the line of any players, item boxes, and/or ground items within 5 seconds of being overlapped. When this is performed, the player is not allowed to move (minor movement is fine if the player is stopped on a sloped surface, but this is not an excuse to drive near or around any item boxes), use any items, make contact with any item boxes, collide with any ground items, hit any ingame hazards that can cause items to be lost (i.e. thwomps, cars, etc), fall off of the track, and/or gain positions from which they were overlapped in for the remainder of the race. Using the rearview mirror every few seconds will prevent disconnection while overlapped.
    e.ii. An overlapped player must allow any non-overlapped players to hit him/her with items.
    e.iii. If a player overlaps another player due to re-spawning in front of them (as in Lakitu appears holding the player in front of the overlapped player and henceforth), the overlapped player must immediately abide by rule IX. e.i.
    e.iv. If a player is overlapped while under the effects of an item used prior to being overlapped, a penalty will not be given. However they must still abide by rule IX. e.i. when given the opportunity.
    e.v. Players are not allowed to affect any players that are in close range of overlapping them. Rule IX. e.vi. is the only possible exception.
    e.vi. Players close to being overlapped may only take item boxes that are out of the usual line of first place, and may only take said item boxes if there are others readily and easily available in the item set.
    e.vii. Close encounters between players close to being overlapped and the first place player will not be counted as an overlap unless sufficient proof is presented to prove that an overlap occurred. If the player close to being overlapped provides evidence from their perspective that they did not get overlapped, no penalty will be given.
    e.viii. If e.i.-e.vi. are broken while overlapping rules are in effect, a penalty of 10 or 20 points will be given depending on the severity of each incident (assuming sufficient proof is presented). A penalty may not be given if the incident has no effect on the results of the race.

    Reason: The majority of the players participating in the CT Division(s) have voted to remove Overlapping from the rule-set, due to many issues regarding this type of rule. This had already been removed in RT Divisions, and now it's safe to say it's been eliminated from the Wiimmfi League entirely.

    Update

    Change
    : Modification of Rule VIII. e.

    e. Players may not use the following glitches/shortcuts:
    - Alpine Skyway
    - BassBasher City
    - Blue Loop
    - Disco Fever
    - Haunted Woods
    - Iceway (1)
    - Iceway (2)
    - Kinoko Cave
    - SNES Donut Plains 3
    - Subspace Factory
    - Volcano Beach 2
    - Water Island (1)
    - Water Island (2)
    - Yellow Loop
    e. Players may not use the following glitches/shortcuts:
    - Alpine Skyway
    - BassBasher City
    - Blue Loop
    - Castle of Darkness (Bagging Shortcut)
    - Disco Fever
    - Haunted Woods
    - Iceway (1)
    - Iceway (2)
    - Kinoko Cave
    - SNES Donut Plains 3
    - Subspace Factory
    - Volcano Beach 2
    - Water Island (1)
    - Water Island (2)
    - Yellow Loop

    Reason: A new shortcut/glitch has been found in the following track:

    - Castle of Darkness

    This shortcut/glitch is only viable with bagging/going backwards. It is banned because it triggers a position glitch for the whole race, showing the bagger in 1st place for the other racers, therefore players who are actually first will not be getting blue shelled, while also getting items which they shouldn't be getting. Link of video of the shortcut/glitch is attached to the name of the track to show what it is and why it is banned.

    Update

    Change: Modification of Rule IV. e., and removal of Rule IV. f. (Rule IV. g. will become Rule IV. f., Rule IV h. will become rule IV. g., and Rule IV i. will become Rule IV h.).

    e. Players who make their registration/transfer post after Friday @11:59 PM ET will be ineligible to play that week's match.
    e. Players who make their registration, transfer posts, or FC updates after Friday @11:59 PM ET will be ineligible to play with those updates for that week's match.
    f. Any FC updates must be completed before a match starts.

    Reason: Once an issue came up last season where someone posted their FC update very close to the match start time, we noticed that this rule was very vague so due to a vote happening, the council felt that FC updates should have the same deadline as registration and transfer posts as there won't be any more confusions with this new rule happening. This means that Rule IV. f. will no longer be needed.
    ______________________________________________________________

    Change: Addition of Rule X. f.

    f. If a player disconnects during any race where the sandbaggers are at least one lap behind by the end of the race (with proof), they will be given the equivalent spot of the lowest runner (for example, 8th place in a 5v5 with 2 sandbaggers).

    Reason: The council has decided that this change will benefit the competition since we feel that if someone DCs during a race, they do not deserve to get the last position when there are two designated baggers competing for the shock going backwards.

    Update

    1 track has been banned:

    - Disco Fever: Position glitches have been found evident in this track, therefore interfering with results of matches as some people won't receive the items they should be and could avoid getting hit by items they should be getting hit by (red shells & blue shells). This has occurred in two previous WL matches, one where we have video evidence of here (1:40:55). This occurs because the game judges a said player of doing the ultra glitch in disco fever due to lag, but is actually not, therefore showing them as last on other peoples screens.

    Update

    2 tracks have been banned:

    - Comet Starway: A glitch has been found where If you happen to fall off the track near a zapper, it is possible that you will respawn onto the zapper continuously, pushing you off of the track over and over, therefore giving you an instant bottom position because of it. This has occurred in a few past WL matches, proving that it is a common bug, hence why it is being banned. Video can be found here.

    - Helado Mountain:
    A glitch has been found where if you fall off in the alternative route of this track, your lap will not count, therefore giving you an instant bottom position. This has also occurred in past WL matches. Gif can be found here.

    e. Players may not use the following glitches/shortcuts:

    - SNES Donut Plains 3
    - Subspace Factory
    - Volcano Beach 2
    - Water Island (1)
    - Water Island (2)
    - Yellow Loop

    Reason: A new shortcut/glitch has been found in the following track:

    - Crossingville (37:00)

    As shown in the video attached to the name of the track, see Jose's point of view as he takes the shortcut, this shortcut does not count his lap, however, it causes a position glitch on all of the other players screens, showing whoever is actually 1st in 2nd place, whoever is 2nd in 3rd place, etc. This will cause items to not hit the player, such like blue shells, while players will also be receiving items they potentially shouldn't be receiving.

    Update

    4 tracks have been unbanned:

    - Alpine Skyway
    - Faraway Land
    - Kirio Raceway
    - Super Sky Courtyard


    Reason: Due to majority council vote, we have agreed to unban these tracks as the reason they were banned for originally don't cause a huge impact on the race(s) and are avoidable.

    ______________________________________________________________


    1 track has been banned under special occasion:

    - Undiscovered Offlimit: As witnessed in the previous CT FFA, there were a lot of spots lagged at the end of the race in this track. This has been evident to be a permanent issue with the track and will occur in 12 player rooms. This track is only banned in 6vs6 matches.

    Change: Modification of Rule VIII. e.

    e. Players may not use the following glitches/shortcuts:
    - BassBasher City
    - Blue Loop
    - Castle of Darkness (Bagging)
    - Crossingville
    - Disco Fever
    - Haunted Woods
    - Kinoko Cave
    - SNES Donut Plains 3
    - Subspace Factory
    - Volcano Beach 2

    Reason: A new shortcut/glitch has been found in the following track:

    - Star Slope

    As shown, the player is able to skip a large part of the track with a mushroom, and then going back to hit the checkpoint to then continue on, counting the lap. As seen in the gif, Myth hops fairly far over the invisible wall, and onto the other side of the track. The player, skipping a portion of the track has a major advantage over the other racers, giving an unfair advantage. Also, if done incorrectly, the shortcut could potentially cause a position glitch.

    - Star Slope: Major out of bounds respawn glitches have been discovered, along with the fact of a major shortcut being already banned, which could potentially cause position glitches in the room. You can find the shortcut here, along with major invisible wall respawn problems here and here.
