Worldwide Lounge (formerly known as Mario Kart Wii: Ranked Play) is a custom game mode created by Zeraora. It modifies the VR system to add custom ranks for certain amounts of VR. This also modifies how much the user can gain and lose depending on their respective rank. This game mode is completely open source, and will be able to be implemented into existing distributions.

Game Features
Feature Description
Ranks Players get rewarded for the amount of VR they have with a custom icon next to their name.
Placement Matches When players first boot up the mod, for the first five races, they will gain/lose 20 times the amount they would normal receive.
Unused Winning Music for 1st When the player's rank is above 7999 VR, if the player gets 1st, an unused 1st place theme (also known as "o_FanfareMIWinBoss_32") will be played instead of the normal theme.
Rank Up Music When a player is possibly about to rank up, the final lap music would be changed to a different song. If the player gets a winning position, "strm_me.brstm" will play.
