whoever thought being able to hold two items was a good idea needs to be beaten to death

    I won more when I started hoarding double shells or bananas and just outraced people instead of depending on knocking them out
    at the higher places
    Obviously for middle and lower you can go nuts because it's fun, but for frontlining I just play it safe unless I feel like screwing some annoying fag over at the very end

    Remove the lightning bolt. Remove it. It's the worst. There's no counterplay, and it's so unfun and punishing. It barely even helps the person who used it. It just ruins the game for everyone else.

    >drops your boost
    >temporarily stuns, killing you if you're over a gap
    >makes you drive slower
    >makes you lose coins
    >makes you drop your items
    >makes you get crushed if someone drives over you
    >turns your music into farty penis music
    >lasts forever if you're in 1st

    It's the fucking worst. There's no warning, there's no avoiding it unless you have an invincibility item which you'll only have if you're losing to begin with.

      bro, the blue shell does the exact same shit. Both of them are the game's way of labelling you are a cuck.

        You can avoid the shell more easily than the lighting, especially if you're not 1st

        It doesn't remove your items, which is THE biggest issue with lightning. Most people who get it use it immediately, which means everyone else who just picked up items from the same blocks probably got fucked. The blue shell only fucks up the guy in 1st if everyone else has the sense to dodge it, and even then it doesn't strip him of his shit.

        Mass item removal should have been a separate thing.

    If this happens you probably didn't have that long of a hold on 1st place, since frontrunning is very easy. Most item spawns give you at least 1 double box which is the guarantee of a defensive item, and meanwhile 2nd through 6th are fighting through hell because the drop rate of Reds in MK8D is bullshit insane & power items are generally underpowered & too infrequent. It's very easy to build a lead in that game that even a Blue will hardly make falter. If something kills your frontrun, it'll be 2nd getting Quad Reds (Triples + Single from a Double Item Box) and somehow being at a time where he's not being too contested by other people throwing Reds.
    This phenomenon kills more frontruns in 8D than Blue Shells.

      Yeah, the 1st place is a lot better to be than people often think. You only have to worry about red shells (generally easy to counter just by holding a banana or a green shell) and blue shells (which you can do nothing about most of the time, but they’re rare), meanwhile people in 2nd - 6th positions are in a constant shitstorm of items. It’s so easy for 1st to just pull away from that crab bucket with just little luck.

    If you hold on to items you are playing the game wrong.

    Agree completely. MK8 was an amazing game that I played thousands of hours of with my friends. Deluxe fucking ruined the game, and the two-items thing is one of the big ways it did that.
