Made this to archive my history piece from my "The State of the Custom Track Warring Community" thread on old MKBoards.

Before Wiimmfi, CTs were VERY POPULAR in funrooms with literally everyone, but warring on them was never ever considered or taken remotely seriously, and so a war never happened. Prior to Custom Track Grand Prix Revolution, on CTGP version 4.4, Flow (Fw), Revolution ([Rv]), and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (NWFC) were among the first clans to ever do a CT war and essentially founded CT warring itself.

On Revolution v1.00.0000 and v1.01.0000, Clan Volo (CV) and High Definition (HD) were the first clans to ever do a recorded custom track war in the game's history (as well as the first to do a 6v6 variant) and it was uploaded to my first YouTube (which got hacked into and deleted), which was vs. the two clans. They also were considered the most active clans to custom track war, and the top 2 clans on custom tracks at the time. They often warred each other, and I was in both (and usually had to pick a side. Since HD was a community and CV was a clan though, I chose CV 90% of the time). Some other clans that would CT war were Sacrifice (SE), Aus Chanps (ac), and Dream Team (Dt). Nightfall (Nt) also did a few CT wars, but stopped after warring Dt. These clans all died out after the release of Mario Kart 7. Despite CV's hate for MK7, they never went back to being active on CTs.

The release of v1.02.0003 really sparked activity for custom track wars. F$, R4L, and a good amount of other clans all did some CT wars, even some top clans since the hype was so high for the new update. A league was also made called the CTL by Nato, but it never took off. Unfortunately, in summer 2013 it all dwindled down to Trident and The Disasters (TD) being the only active clans to do custom track wars. They came too late to the scene... but they wound up being the top 2 custom track clans in the world for v1.02.0003. Nobody could match them... especially TD. TD had a 82-4-6 war record or something similar. Trident gave them their only defeats... they were literally unstoppable on v1.02.

Then Sorry Not Sorry (SnS) came around as well as Relapse (RE) and Kryptonite (kr). Trident and TD went very inactive, and kr took over as the top clan. For awhile these 3 clans were the only ones who would war each other... up until the release of v1.03.0012 and after. CT wars were pretty hyped for awhile due to this long awaited update (which wasn't that good imo--the speed mods ruined some tracks and some good tracks got removed. v1.02.0003 will always be my favorite)... but it didn't last long. RE eventually died out. Then Trident revived itself with Eon under control instead of myself. Midnight Wasps (mw) also came into the mix and Twitch Emotes (TE). SnS, Trident, TE, kr, and mw seemed to be the only clans that ever really warred each other. kr shortly died though, leaving only 4 clans.

Then there was an influx of Japanese custom track clans, such as Universal Century (UC), whatever kA is, and whatever p's is. There were probably some other Japanese Custom Track clans, but they disconnected themselves from the rest of the community that resides in The West.

So we had around 7 active teams at this point... then May 20th rolls around, WFC is gone and Wiimmfi takes over with the update v1.03.0050.

At first 0 custom track clans were active that were really known to the community. At this point, it seemed like custom track warring would die out.

Then in June, SnS revived, a Japanese Custom Track war chat was made, and my clan, Daughters of the Amazon (Da, which did CT wars in the past and tied against TD in TD's fourth war), as well as some other groups that also did regular tracks, took an interest in doing CT wars. A good one of these groups to note is The Hard Truth (Ht), which died.

CT wars really started to pick up in July and it seemed like they weren't going to die out at this point with a few more clans getting into the mix. TD came back as did Trident.

Then August came around and TD died and Trident went very inactive once again. RE revived though, but a few Japanese CT clans died. At this point there were around 4 clans or so warring each other. SnS did a majority of these wars. RE barely did any.

Now September hits, and although FC adding is fixed (which REALLY helps out a lot), it seems like SnS, Da, 1 or 2 Japanese clans, RE (which isn't even that active to begin with), and maybe Astronomical (A) are the only clans that would do CT wars at this point. SnS also looks to be the best clan around at that moment as well.

Also some Japanese CT clans can still be seen on the radar thanks to Wiimmfi being able to show who is playing and what rooms are going on, but they never really interacted with the rest of the community.

Okay let me talk some; how was the situation of cts and their warring in Japanese community. (with poor English lol. mercy on me.) It's worth talking specifically. I wanted you to know such thread exists more earlier tbh.

Back to around 2011, when is the first ctww was founded (1.00), people in Japan believed that Installing both HBC and Riivolution on their Wii are sin cuz it lets everyone be cheatable, if some of them do it then the person will be never seen on any tourney which is held most likely on the well-known board; 2ch (People called it Hon-Sure, as Hon means Main and Sure means Thread in Japanese sound) unless we stream anywhere. They'd denied jailbraking wiis so hard due to less knowledge on it cuz of language problem which none of us has cared. That's why nothing had happened about cts in Japan. So, people playing cts then were most likely hackers doing on ww or regional as well. It means we didn't have players as skilled as making and run decent clans cuz people played them are all hacking main nor playing normally and seriously.

The first clan happened in Japanese community is Mky, which is run by Taka (You can see his name on WR/BKT CT thread sometimes.) in 2013. But nothing else would play against them till TD acknowledge it. Next, in the same year, the clan ™© (almost same thing KD said, UC United Century, it was the clan for rejecting people annoying the leader; Kabakuni from ™© tbh) was founded. These two clan were the base of later Japanese ct warring clan. I belonged to both and we played war with each other and anything other clan outside of Japan by the middle of 2014.

After CTGP Channel and 1.03 had released, alot of people came into cts and started to make clans. The first case was ρ's. (btw among Japanese community it was called as Rose. They read ρ as a Greek character.) It was founded by Kaao (he was also in tmc). Rufus and some Kaao's visitors in his NicoNico Streaming came into it. On the other hand, Nato and Kabakuni decided to play JPN vs WOR in CTs for the first time. (Even though it was almost tmc vs kr 6v6 but who would care). This would be happened for 3 times in a year even though rest of twice didn't involve Nato and Kabakuni. And by happening JPN vs WOR for the 2nd time, Suberita brought lots of his mates from regs and made a clan called Xt (X-theory). This is the major reason why more cts clan was founded ever like 3GB, mfk, GAY R'n (turned into RL later) and etc but I don't remember. But there was the next problem. People didn't exist as much as so many clan existing like Person A belongs all of them, Person B belongs two of them... this was usual and due to this Japanese clan vs Japanese clan hadn't had so mamy times.

By being 2015, Japanese ct community was back to serenity cuz of the death of Suberita due to MK8 releasing. I. Morin. Kyon. Burnout, Kabakuni Kaao and a few other people were just playing wws and tts with Skype more than Wars. and Kaao kept streaming also. I only remember the Christmas Anniversary war had happened (If I'm correct, that was team Kaao vs team Xander) which nobody hadn't recorded sadly. From then to early 2017, anybody like Fin, Akira and Kevin (From Belgium but he was so close to some Japanese people) had held some mogi events on Twitter. It was main kind of playing cts (even we do in regs now) at the moment. I believe MaL, which is the most active Japanese based CT clan was found then.

In 2017 autumn, MaL achieved attending CTWL as a first Japanese based clan in this league and now they are keep going on.

That post was wonderful and very interesting to read, thanks for sharing all of that. Really gives a good insight into the past for the Japanese CT community. :)

Revolution (Rv) was also one of the first clans along with us and NWFC that played custom track wars back then for the record. Nice thread, I honestly didn't have much knowledge of the teams that came after so this was well worth the read.

I find this part hilarious due to you getting caught cheating in the long run :D

... just i wrote how that was
see ya again in 2020
Yeah you did, I am not saying your post was bad. However, what you said is pretty ironic given what you did afterwards... seems like the old Japanese community was right in being afraid of that kind of thing

The "see ya again in 2020" is a great reflection of how unproductive this community is, WL lost tons of teams so that people like you get to play again after 2 years (are you really counting down the days already? lmao), how sad

I wasn't about to say irony. But, exactly, I know I shouldn't have said such a thing with this situation. But I'm the only one who can leave these things as sentences nowadays. Sorry for this and letting whoever read this misunderstanding. Hopefully you don't feel bad at me.

Btw I'm counting for sure... August 25th is the day. Really looking forward to it : ) Originally I wasn't getting heavy shit due to the thing wasn't intentionally but getting 2 years ban, showing as I could play ctwl at least at first, councils sudden changed rules about this, nobody notices by w1 and getting -150'd. It's the Very Managed League ever. (irony this time) I know I shouldn't swear such a thing here but let me say those atleast.
