CDM 2014 dates and location are known, and subscriptions are open!
FFSMK is pleased to announce the subscriptions for the 2014 edition of the Super Mario Kart World Championship are open !
After an excellent and highly praised 2013 edition, we have to thank the current World Champion Florent Lecoanet (Neo) who took the best decision possible — i.e , hosting CDM (Championnat du Monde, French for "World Championship") again in La Suze-sur-Sarthe (France, 20 kms from Le Mans, Sarthe), where it will be held from August 12th to 17th, 2014.
You can find all the useful information and details about the way to reach La Suze on the "How to come ?" page, thanks to a satellite view of the village, to help you figuring out the location of the train station, the venue, the hotel and camping. Like in 2013, the subscription fees include the camping ones, as long as you bring your own tent (or manage to share one with another player who can bring one), but FFSMK cannot take responsibility for hotel room bookings.
Of course, FFSMK wants to thank the town of La Suze for trusting us once more for CDM organization, and Neo for all the administrative work he performed to make things official so early in the year!
The definitive agenda is still to set up, especially when it comes to the groupstage system, but we can already announce Time Trial will open the CDM as usual on Tuesday 12, the championship ending on Friday 16 with the fourth and final mode. You can check out the current temporary agenda anyway, which is very close to what will be officialized afterwards, on the detailed page dedicated to the CDM agenda.
Alongside to the website evolution, a new automated subscription form is available for the potential participants : you will not have to fill in a file then send it by email anymore — only the parental authorization (for people under 18) requires to be downloaded, signed and sent. Once FFSMK receives your payment, your subscription will be validated! You can fill the form and send your payment until June 30, beyond this date the fees will be slightly higher (see conditions in the subscription form page), just to keep people aware how important it is for FFSMK to get the most possible payments and attendance details early.
Of course, as usual, many prizes from our historical partners will be provided, in addition to the usual trophies. So stay tuned: many details will come very soon about all those prizes on the dedicated page!
Like in 2013, those who will not be able to move to La Suze and/or attend CDM will have the possibility to watch it live thanks to the event livestream on twitch.
Who will succeed to Guillaume Leviach (Mario86) (Time Trial), to the Briton Sami Cetin (Grand Prix 150cc), to Harold Christensen (Battle Mode) and most of all, to Florent Lecoanet (Neo) (Match Race), 2013 World Champion and main host of this new edition?
Without any doubt, this 13th edition of the SMK championships will make the best players in the world fight very hard once again, but we're always hoping to see everyone attending, especially newcomers, whatever their SMK level is! As we've been telling for years to all the potential new players: being afraid of not having the skills enough for such an event is definitely an excuse for not coming that FFSMK cannot just accept... ;-)
So, please do not hesitate and go on, by attending Super Mario Kart World Championships too! After all, maybe you will be one of those legendary surprises competitions are made of...
