Overview

Mario Kart Wii: Ranked Play is a game mode created by TheNinjaKingOW. 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.
