Official Tournament FAQ
This is a "working" FAQ, meaning changes will be made to it as time goes on. If you have anymore questions after reading through this FAQ, drop me a PM or post your question in the tournaments forum.
How do Track and Field Tournaments work?
Track and Field Online Tournaments are simple and easy to join, and they take competition to a whole new level! Sign up for a Track and Field tournament right here on http://www.newtrackandfield.com, and once the tournament starts, fire up your DS and compete for the top spot. As with all other Track and Field statistics, your tournament statistics are automatically uploaded to the website and to the tournament standings (as long as you have successfully linked your account). When the tournament has come to a close, a winner will be determined and bragging rights will be earned. Read below for a more detailed breakdown on our tournament system.
How do I find a Track and Field Tournament to join?
The best place to find a tournament to join is on our Tournaments Page, which you can access from the main navigation bar. The “Upcoming Tournaments” block on the tournaments page lists the Track and Field Tournaments that will start in the near future. You can also use the calendar and event search function to find a tournament more specific to your playing style. The homepage of the Track and Field Community Site also features a block specific to the next upcoming tournament, which you can easily click to find tournament details. Once you find the tournament you want to join, click on its link, and this will bring you to the official tournament page. You will see a “Join” link in the top right corner of the official tournament page. By clicking this link you have officially entered yourself into a Track and Field tournament!
How do I play in a tournament once I’ve joined one?
Playing in a tournament is easy and fun! Go to the official tournament page of the tournament you have entered (this is the page you joined the tournament on, and it can be found easily using the “My Tournaments” Tab on the Main Tournament Page – also described below) Once you are on the official tournament page, you will see the tournament details. Each tournament will feature four Track and Field Events. One event represents one round in the tournament (Four Rounds in all). Each tournament has a set start date and time. Once that time starts, all you need to do is play the Round 1 event (detailed on the bottom on the official tournament page) in any single-player game mode, and your high scores from that event will automatically be entered into the tournament standings (the next time you sign onto Nintendo WFC). With this in mind, make sure to sign onto Nintendo WFC after you play, or you can just sign into Nintendo WFC before you play and remain signed in throughout the course of your play (this is the best way to do it).
Each Round lasts exactly 24 hours. If your scores earned you entry into the next round, then you would follow the same exact play format for that round and any round to follow, except that you would be playing the event specific to that round (listed on the Official Tournament Page). Tournament progression is described in further detail below.
You can continuously try to “up” your highest score as long as you earn the higher score within that specific round’s 24-hour play period.
How do Tournaments progress and end?
The length of each Track and Field tournament depends on how many people enter that tournament. Each tournament starts with four set events specific to four set rounds, but the amount of people that enter the tournament determines how many of those rounds are actually played. Please refer to the easy to read breakdown listed below:
# of Entrants: 0-25
Rounds Played: 1st Round Only
