Better hurry up Dragon or you wont get the satisfaction of crossing the line in second place.

Players like Matt, Dragon, Jazzem and Spindash know the game inside out and so, even if bad luck strikes them, over the course of a tournament they'll have the skills and knowledge to battle through and win.

Less skilled Karters such as myself have to fight for the scraps and, very occasionally, find that luck goes our way and roar to victory :toot: . Even when we don't do that well, our experience will be improving race-by-race as we learn new techniques.


Oh for sure, Matt & Dragon are skilled drivers but I will not agree at all that the online for Mario Kart is all down to skill based. There are fundamental problems with online that help people with better connections, I don't know how many times I was 'rewarded' a mushroom while someone up front were given read shells.

I dunno, Jazzem used to win loads with his awful connection back on the U version. He'd finish in like third and he'd be first on the score board after the race. Hence him being called Laggem.

Not a tough choice you want to be superior.

If you want a bit of a confidence boost, play on the Switch as the competition will be easier than those of us who play on the Wii U.

I'll be back on for this next week. Perhaps rather than putting in Monday which some people are still not happy about we can play some other day so hopefully some of the people refusing to turn up to the Switch one out of principle can play :P

I don't think anyone is refusing to turn up to the Switch one out of principle. It's because it's got lightweights like you in who never turn up

How the hell are people so fast in this? Play with people close to my 'rank and it's a good game with a good chance coming high up. Some munter who has about 5-10k more 'points' than you just wipes the floor with everyone.

And I'm sick to death of getting nothing but mushrooms :|
