      I'm a little surprised they nerfed Stingray too, but yeah he was busted in Classic. The Goose buff is insane, MORE spinning? He was already really good, nearly as good as Stingray. Falcon deserved the buff too, it took them long enough.

        Actual moronic reasoning. Given how machines were only slightly tweaked it's more likely that they have the data of the top 1000 users and found that Golden Fox very slightly leans towards the best machine. Most people that play Golden Fox also agree that the machine hasn't even been nerfed that much and that the only real thing this changed was that you have to be more careful and you can't abuse the dry boosting mechanic which is across the board now anyways.

    As a Goose main, I am now obligated to spin even more. I'm happy to see some balance changes. It was clear to me that Fox was busted when I recognized that if you boost the same number of times per lap with any other machine, you'll always start the next lap with slightly less energy. Except for Fox. Full bar every lap. I also am happy they added new things to the mirror tracks. They're actually fresh. Spark lines are way more of a game changer than I anticipated too.

    Man, this one is gonna sting, past S21 losing to 3 rivals makes one lose rank and losing to all of them takes like a fifth of your whole rank. Also, why would they even increase Stingray's boost cost? It's already the most expensive of the four.

    Fire Field in Classic is nice because the map actually plays as it's supposed to now. There's an actual weighted decision between taking the pit or skipping it, whereas in 99 you just take it every time no matter what.

      Makes me wonder if those S40 players will start losing rank, losing against the rivals is really punishing past S21. The only solace I have is that some streamers I watch who are at 2 stars are still hard stuck between S22-S25, so I'm giving them a run for their money at my humble Lv87.

    My thought so far:

    Falcon is the biggest winner of the patch. Zippers send him up to 999kmph now and his boost is significantly faster. Frequently, Falcons will match Foxes to the starting line, nearly getting there first. Falcons are better able to tail and harass frontrunning Foxes now and overtake them.

    Goose's changes are kind of just icing, not too impactful. The zipper boost increase isn't as great as Falcon's and while the lesser spin cooldown is nice, the reduction in player damage across the board this patch might hurt Goose more in the long run.

    Stingray is more or less the same. Uses ever so slightly less boost now. The big problem is that everyone else got better, so Stingray is just relatively worse now.

    Fox didn't get hit too badly, in fact there are some good things for him in this patch. While the increased boost cost will make some courses a little more lean, Fox actually received a greater decrease in damage than any other vehicle which helps to offset the boost cost; relatively, it is now tankier than it was before, and isn't punished as heavily for playing in the pack. Fox also now drops to 380kmph in power down instead of 400 (alongside the overall nerf to dry boosting) but dry boost strats were lame and degen anyway so this is negligible.

        I think a lot of highly competitive players came back in full force last night. Normally I place top 10 in GPs that FZD doesn't divebomb into but the two GPs I have played so far I typically end in the tens (13-18). Many of my starting races consist of taking one turn wide and going from 10th to 40th.

      Golden Fox was just too easy to master. With every other vehicle it felt like you had to perfect boosting as well as remember to get KOs, make sure people are hitting you from behind, and use the proper skips. I won all of my Golden Fox races literally just by boosting and maybe like 10% of it being attributed to placement/dodging bumpers.

          I disagree with making barriers drain less energy across the board as well. It really should have not been given to Golden Fox. But at the very least, the machine is more inline with other machines and has less of a handicap for people that just do the frontrunning + boosting playstyle.
