is an online tournament for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
. Consisting of a series of 12-race matches, teams and players from all around the globe matched up and competed to win. Amplify V
is the fifth event, which took place in January of 2020.
This edition of Amplify
continues on the success of previous Amplify
tournaments, exciting events with many teams and hundreds of players. With Amplify V
, we saw many more teams and players join the fun!
New this year was an accelerated tournament format
. Whereas previous Amplify
events took about two months to complete, with matches only taking place on Saturdays, in Amplify V
, both Saturdays and Sundays
were used for matches. This made the tournament roughly twice as quick to complete—and an intense battle to the end!
The tournament starts with a split swiss stage, where teams play a series of matches in their group, facing opponents with a similar win/loss record each time. Following the swiss stage was a triple-bracket elimination stage, where teams were seeded into three brackets based on their performance in the swiss stage.
