            Getting coins now is painful as sin, if you don't have friends for online cheesing daily earnings you're never going to get enough to unlock anything, and in general the entire shop end's been altered to make sure you spend RL cash for enough coins to honestly get anything.

              To be fair, the game is fucking dead now. It's a shame. You or anyone that wants to be a completionists should've played it in 2019-2020. I haven't played it in over 2 years and I doubt you can find a full lobby now. The online was fucking awful anyway because of the load times, part of the reason I quitted.

                They make the game worse. It's the reason the online died, between the reserves being OP and items being UP it's completely imbalanced so every race becomes a time trial since it is impossible for anyone to ever catch up.
                The artstyle is also fucking atrocious, and several stages have major issues with collision detection as mentioned before. I can have a great time popping in the OG CTR with some buddies and a few drinks, but NF is not fun for a group to play, at all.

This is a game where losing your blue fire and all your speed is already really punishing, what is the point of also making you stand there bouncing for like 4 seconds or being slowly placed on the ground by the mask? Doesn't seem properly balanced for multiplayer.

      The game in general is poorly balanced, the game had one foot in casual kart racer and another in more skilled based play, weakening the experience for both sides. There fact there was no ranking system made every lobby such a mixed bag of players it wasn't much fun for anyone. There should have been a no item mode/ranked mode for the tryhards, and the items needed to be stronger to help level the playing field in casual. It sucks because there is such a good kart racing foundation that had a lot more potential.

        But there was, there's a hidden MMR system that makes high skilled players more likely to end up with other players of similar skill. The matchmaking sometimes adds people below you or above you to fill out the lobbies though.

            I mean 8 new tracks and a shitload of new characters and voice actors being called in is a lot more post release support than other games get. I think Activision probably just got sick of paying for an entire studio to keep developing a game they've already released.
            >but if it was still making decent money, why did it end?
            Because Call of Duty makes more money and before Beenox made CTR this is what they were the most known for.

          Can anyone confirm? I haven't read anyone saying this for a long time.

            just started it on my switch last week after like a 6 month long haitus and it took me about 2 minutes to find a lobby, considering switch was the least popular compared to ps4 and xbox I imagine the other platforms are doing just fine.

              Is this known?
              Also, are you finding lobbies regularly at any given time, or did you just give it a go and then stop afterward? I see the opposite sentiment very commonly.

                From what I saw it was Xbox that was least popular, most of the online discussions I saw were about Switch/PS4

                Well it was in the middle of the day on a weekday, and also a bit on the weekend. Considering the matchmaking is localized on your continent it probably would have very little players in the middle of the night though

                I'm from Xbox and occasionally play on the night, I find a lobby pretty quickly each time, not a full one tho, like 6 players

    Not at all. With no comeback mechanisms or means of engagement that'd allow for effectively turning a race around, the best it had was maybe speed-running potential. That isn't saying anything, because racers generally have time-trials.

    sorry but I'm sticking to the PSX version because I don't have a console and I don't think my skills are that transferable

      You'd be surprised how close the games feel. There certainly is a difference, but they play very similar, for the most part.

    So much more they could have added, but for whatever reason they just dropped all support.

    Not really. Frontrunning was always too good in this game to be a serious multiplayer game. Its strength lies more in the large amount of singleplayer content.

    so why didn't CTRNitro get a PC release anyways?

    The remasters and Crash 4 were released on PC so why not CTRN?

      Most people seem to attribute it to hacking potential, the fear that people would circumnavigate the MTX, but all of Activision's other games are still on PC so it don't make much seance to me.

      I think it has nothing to do with hacking and mtx like some anons have said, I think the biggest reason Activision hasn't ported CTR to PC is because they don't want to pay for the servers they would need to support the online and they can't rely on the steam servers because they prefer to release their games on Battlenet because they don't have to pay Steam anything and it's good advertising for their other games

    My only gripe with the game is the lousy online. Many other problems like phantom items or bowling bombs way off to the side hitting you would be solved with better connections. It is the first online Crash game though

        Switch emulators already run it but doesn't fix the load time problem even on SSDs
