2024 Hololive New Year Cup

From Hololive Fan Wiki

The 2024 Hololive New Year Cup was the fifth edition of the Hololive Mario Kart tournament series. In this edition, both Towa and Okayu served as tournament hosts. The group raffle drew the participants into the preliminary groups on December 16, 2023. This time, the competition was a two-day event with the preliminary rounds on January 7, 2024; with the group stage and final rounds the following day.

Tournament Format and Rules[edit]

  • Preliminary rounds: Four races
  • Group stage rounds: Four races
  • Zako and Tsuyo final rounds: Six races
  • 150cc with no assists
  • All items and cars permitted
  • All stages may be chosen, but limited to only once per round
  • Ties are broken by highest placement
  • Disconnected players may rejoin but forfeit previously earned points
  • Preliminary groups are randomly determined by lottery
  • Group stage groups are determined by preliminary positions

Groups[edit]

All 37 participants were randomly drawn into four Preliminary Groups. The winners of these four groups proceeded directly to the Tsuyo cup, while the remaining 33 were sorted into three Group Stage groups based on their placements from the preliminary groups. The preliminaries were played on Day 1. Group Stage and the final Zako and Tsuyo Cups were played on Day 2.

The initial draw placed members via the web roulette spinning wheel. One by one, they were randomly grouped. Towa and Okayu served as hosts, and they could not be placed in the same Preliminary group. Likewise, if Fuwawa and Mococo ended up in the same group, one would have to be randomly placed in a different group. Towa intended for the two to race separately. Due to work schedule, Lui was directly placed into Group A.

Redraw of the Preliminary Groups[edit]

On December 28, 2023, the preliminary groups were redrawn. Both Lamy and Nerissa dropped out of competition which put the number of participants down to 35. A reduction count below 36 allowed the preliminary round to be completed into three groups instead of four. The same grouping restrictions pertaining to Lui, Towa, Okayu, and Fuwamoco still applied. The redraw did not affect the tournament schedule.

However, on January 5, 2024, Chloe was diagnosed with COVID-19, forcing her to drop out of the competition. Juufuutei Raden instead raced in her stead.

The new preliminary groups were as follows:

Group A Group B Group C

Group Stage Placements[edit]

Based on the results from the preliminary round, racers were placed into their groups by snake position. Two of the groups had 11 racers and one had 10. Had Fuwawa and Mococo been placed in the same group, one would have been traded to a different group with a racer of the same rank.

Group D Group E Group F

From Group B: 3rd, 6th, 9th, 12th

Final Races[edit]

The final cups consisted of the Zako and Tsuyo Cups. For the championship, the Tsuyo Cup consisted of all Group winners from A through F. After the Group Stage, the non-winning racers were ranked from 1 through 29 based on their combined points from the preliminary and group stage races. The top 6 from this ranking also joined the group winners in the Tsuyo Cup, while the bottom 12 went to the Zako Cup. The Zako Cup was used to determine the last place overall tournament finisher.

Preliminary Results[edit]

The preliminary races took place on Day 1. For the preliminary rounds, first place from each group qualified directly into the Tsuyo Cup races. The remaining 32 were grouped into three groups: D, E, and F. They were placed into those groups in accordance with their placements from the preliminary rounds.
