Now that the dust has settled, what are your final thoughts on MK8's race courses?
>cheep cheep beach
you are the biggest homosexual i have ever met holy shit
Whoever is the dumbass executive that suggested Ice World over any of the other tracks deserves the largest amount of bad luck.
Frappe Snowland was right there if you wanted a snow level at night.
>Frappe Snowland was right there
Rosalina's Shitland at least has pits and some decent turns. Frappe doesn't have shit especially after they nerfed the snowmen.
Oh yeah, unfun course design is so much better than a nice, flst course. Kys.
>a nice, flst course
You have all the Tour shit if that's what you want.
Extra have a nice day if that's your defense for Rosa dogwater world
Rosalina's track is fucking trash, but I'll still take it over fucking Frappe. At least pick N64 Sherbet.
Nah, bad music and bad track? No thanks
They share the same song
I meant rosas track.
Your boobs are flat.
but enough about Snes bowser castle 3
MK7 had some great tracks and its a shame they got left out for that one. The Wuhu ones, Warios Ship or Shy Guy Bazar are SO much better
>Whoever is the dumbass executive that suggested Ice World over any of the other tracks deserves the largest amount of bad luck.
why does everyone hate this stage so much? nobody i've asked has managed to give an actual answer
did some homosexual youtuber like vinesauce say he hates the track?
i see literally nothing wrong with it other than being a boring ice stage
donut plains 3 is underrated as hell
I haven't played any of the booster courses yet.
you ain't missing much
>Shroom Ridge that low
die casual die
At risk of sounding like a bitch, can we get off teams for the next round?
>red shocks at the last second
cam on red. score some fackin points
shock = win
how do i beat the rosalina ice world 150cc ghost? it just peels off and never makes any errors
Currently joining the room
For future reference
whoever is making the new one put in "it takes all colors to make a rainbow. except black. there is no black in a rainbow"
REEEEEE THE GAME ISN'T DESIGNED FOR 200CC
>that Lap 2 skip
my team droped a bomb I was gonna make it 2nd XD
Are you king boo? LMAO I saw you die like a dog
yeah thx bro
the peachette who let me into 1st place because you saw I was on the same team as you and had triple nanas...
If it was the ink striker, that was me
Room is full, fucky my life
I TRANS HEART SHOCKS
gonna wait about 5 mins before next grand prix
Are we gonna migrate to a Gankereekend thread like anon said he was gonna make at 6pm est?
>host pissed into his switch, causing everyone to DC

Everyone DCed again, same room ID anons
Rattle me bones
There will be no justice until Mona is in Mario Kart.
2 iterations away.
classic frontrun into blue shell incident
step it up redfags
How did a red shell hit me by the side
Sherbet Land really
Yea nigga deal with it, it’s good
YEP! That map is still a bagging track.
Bagging is dead anon.
electrodrome and yoshi circuit are incredibly fun
What are some underated tracks?
neo bowser city
dear the other Kamek in the room: no more brother wars
Alright anons it's 11pm here, I'm gonna head off. Someone else should be able to create a room
jannies please ban all red players for that shameful display
sorry Pauline but this is Funky Chad territorium
I got fucked so badly lmfao
well guess its time for the fun to die now because of course noone else can be arsed to open a lobby
wel I take it back
To be fair I wanted to host a lobby but I figured someone else would have also hosted by the time I posted my code
I don't remember that DK track being so short on the gamecube
It felt even shorter on the gamecube because it wasn't so wide
nice playing with you guys, this was a core Ganker memory that I'm sure we'll all remember in years from now
we used to have Gankerkend threads regulary but then everyone started arguing about 200 vs 150cc and it all died down after spliting up in two groups
>200cc fags ruined everything
>we used to have Gankerkend threads regulary but then everyone started arguing about 200 vs 150cc
You also forgot
>OG MK8 splitting up everyone because some people didn't want to buy the DLC
>Deluxe coming out and people refusing to move on from the Wii U
Hopefully this final wave of MK8 revives them, I'd be down to play more with you guys on the weekend, it beats playing random sweats on worldwide
>Shocking when over half the lobby dodged
Button mashing nagger.
who has the nsp and 3.0 update?
all major sites
but I will spoon feed you today
JOIN THE LOBBY FAGS
Apologies ahead of time team mates if I hold us back
Should I start ?
Idea for next Mario Kart that's not turning it into Nintendo Kart: Every character has a unique ability. For example
>Mario gets 1.5x speed on Mushrooms
>Luigi gets 1.5x duration on Mushrooms
>Peach gets pulled 3x faster by Lakitu
>Daisy only loses 1 coin if pulled by Lakitu instead of 3
>DK gets his Giant Banana special from MK:DD as a replacement for triple bananas
>Toad gets much more distance/air time out of jumps, to the point where he can stay airborn for almost a whole second if jumping in a straight line
>Toadette can turn much faster in the air allowing her to make insanely precise turns
>Wario recovers from item damage 20% faster than normal
>Waluigi's items stun victims (including himself if he hits himself with an item) for 1.25x longer than normal
And on and on.
good idea but that's not a gimmick or feature you can base a game around, those are just ordinary game abilities
>Mario and Luigi have an ability that can get outright negated depending on distance from 1st
>Peach only benefits shit players
>DK gets a better item
>Toad is objectively worse than all racers who stick to the ground and maintain speed
>Wario makes other heavy characters worse
Did you actually think this was a good idea?
>Mario and Luigi need to do something other than frontrunning
Is that a bad thing?
this is a terrible idea, because you KNOW they won't be balanced
Mario Kart is already plagued with character meta autism, and you want to make it even worse? The ideal future of the series is to do what CTR Nitro Fueled did by making characters/vehicles entirely cosmetic without affecting stats.
>some characters get situational passives
>DK gets a permanent item upgrade
How the fuck is that balanced?
Triple bananas are one of the best items in the game and appear most often around 7th - 4th place.
Yeah, but how is that not busted? DK gets to have what is basically a double use triple while Toad stays in the air longer.
At high level play, hopping is integral to playing the game. There are some shortcuts that you'd be able to take just by hopping. The opening grass shortcut on Toad's Harbor, for example, would be insanely easy to do with a drift hop if your hop covered more air time. That means you could cut a lot of corners that you otherwise
It is very track design dependent, I'll admit, but it's not as useless as you'd think. Shromless shortcuts are the most fun shortcuts in Mario Kart. That final shroomless shortcut on Yoshi Valley is pure soul.
And what if there's a giant banana in front of the shortcuts?
>There are some shortcuts that you'd be able to take just by hopping.
The air time doesn't really mean much when faster characters aren't even affected.
Oh they're affected. You need to have the right stats and size to clear that jump with only one hop in the grass. Being able to jump across it without slowing down at all would shave a second or two off your time by the end of 3 laps.
DK could straight up fuck whoever is behind him over by blocking the entire road in Double Dash. The roads got much larger from MKWii onwards to accommodate more racers so the DK banana strategy wouldn't be as strong as in Double Dash.
>The roads got much larger from MKWii onwards to accommodate more racers
But shortcuts were also made significantly more predictable. Outside of the few courses where Lakitu lightens up, DK would be able to shut down most cuts.
Even if the giant banana was permanent, DK could only block one shortcut starting on Lap 2. That means that as long as you're ahead of him, you only miss out on one shortcut.
stop jacking off host
>200cc baby park
Wow, I got combo'd to death so hard that race 90% of that wasn't even me driving.
total red death
>racing against a mini with the cow suit
>waves it’s fucking ass at me as it trick jumps
I can’t fucking breathe
Mario Kart has fallen, billions of blues must die
Finally, I can appreciate how fat my ass is, but in a game
do 50cc and maybe I'll join
50cc Solo plz
Shut up you unfunny retard
50cc is fun with a lot of people
So make your own lobby
will i see any of you guys in Wii U MK8 before they pull the plug on wii u and 3ds online?
Very late reply but yes, I intend to do some lobbies for both somewhere before the servers shut down
a shameful display from red
Team or Solo ? 150cc only tho
I said 150cc only nagger
Im fine with a solo
I hate bullet bills
I hate being pushed by heavyfags but we can’t all get what we want
HAHAHA THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE FUNKY KONG YOU BLUESHELL KEKOLD
That's right keep backing your items in 9-12th retards
I totally earned that first place. Lowkey Koopa friend I was fine with getting second
just got home what is room code
Props were a mistake.
>They lost to Baby Rosalina
I had better ideas then honking someone who has a bobomb
>getting pushed off track at the end of the last lap
that white yoshi nagger make me lose the cup
GG I was the yoshi 🙂
bowser is fucking terrible. no wonder no one uses the super heavies

You're welcome Chris
I guess It's over for tonight

oh my god these fucking comm errors
HOLY SHIT GUYS NEW DLC WAS JUST ANNOUNCED
Fun games guys, See you tomorrow (mabye)
TOTAL RED DEATH
Post Mario thumbs up pic
How are you guys enjoying the new tracks in 200c Gankerirgins?
Anyone wanna do 50cc?
too late, maybe tomorrow
Thanks based lightningfriend
Sadly I squandered the opportunity
200cc fucking sucks lmao
Not him, but I got Gold Metal Mario and still hate 200cc. Some maps on it are incredibly homosexual. Neo Bowser City on 200cc is a war crime.
Alright after 10 years, my final ranking of MK8 tracks
I will never understand why some people love DK Sumshit.
filtered by turnpike homosexual
Big Blue and Wild Woods should swap places. Cheese Land and Ribbon Road are too high, and Donut Plains 3 and Yoshi's Island are too low.
Dropped mushrooms might as well be traps on 200cc
i love rosa
Would you love her if her hair was pushed off her face?
YES I LOVE ROSE
i love rosa
Based Rosalina enjoyer
If the new character’s models are mostly ported over from Tour, then I wonder how the heck they managed to mess up Pauline’s shoes.
I'll let you in on a secret, the model qualities in Tour are the same as MK8. Tour just looks worse due to the lighting.
That just makes it weirder still. Pauline’s Tour model has her usual strapped pump heels, but her model in 8 has her with strapless heels.
peachette's voice is pure sexo
speaking of peachette does she still have the "just like a princess" line
I expected to dislike Madrid as much as most other city tracks but I think it's actually pretty damn good, I dunno why people rate it so poorly.
Why do mushrooms have a near 200% item box spawn rate now? This is awful, hotfix patch when???? I hate the mushrooms.
150cc room if anyone wants
Is this one still active?
This one is
so why doesn't peachette get a biker outfit
Retracting the dress to shorts and putting on boots isn't enough for you?
whaddo i look like some kinda chump? im a big man with big needs. like leather. or ascots.
It's like I never left
Get the fuck in here
>willingly playing 200cc
who does this
Stfu naggerhomosexual go play in the babby lobby
People with a need... for speed
the cc stands for cocaine
MK8 if the roster was actually good
Where is he?
Isn't Hoy out of season?
wheezed when i saw mung daal’s stupid grin in the bottom right
Bagging still exists and still works, it's just based on the player's distance from the item box so players are testing how far you need to be
In webm related the distance isn't far at all and the slight extra time is more than made up for with the items
Pretty sure the bagging changes just mean that you can't camp the same set of items for more than 2 items. After that, it starts giving you bad items until you move on. That seems to be all that has changed.
>unlock all the gold kart parts
>the all-gold kart is fucking shit
>beat the game
>get a golden turd
Just like botw
SEXO with funky kong
Join or die
You are the one who needs to die
150 for you, you filthy casual
GGs 200cc room
Good games, see you tomorrow!
If nobody makes a thread tomorrow I likely will (PM EST, maybe earlier)
Probably just gonna do lobby codes for the future but I'll use the old OP and naming just for ease of finding
This shit is so jank.
You bonk'd on the side of it
it really is. Feel like you're playing a bobsledding game or some shit.
Good Peachette combo that I can jerk off to?
>get 1st three times in a row
>lucky if i get top 4
why are we so terrible mericabros
Is it me or mushrooms are way too common?
I need a Star or a bullet bill and they drop a single mushroom wtf
It is to disincentive hanging out on an item box.
Damn, even if you are not bagging? Because I got fucked a couple of times and only got shrooms
Depending on what place you're in, you can still get single shrooms when you're really far from first. I think they changed the balance of items a little bit during DLC4 or 5 and I think that's a bit more common now.
This has been a consistent problem since the original MK8 on the Woi U
item distribution is just shit and you're in last place constantly getting mushrooms.
That's because MK8 uses a different item system then all previous MKs
What you're describing has been a thing since vanilla
Are the CPUs set to double cunt on these last two cups in 200cc or something? After several tries, I got first in Rome and then held first the entire race on DK Mountain before succumbing to the ninth red shell right by the bridge because I got literally nothing but coins.
hold your coins dumbass, you can't get a second coin if you're already carrying one
>keep it, guaranteed defensive item next
>also Boo will always take the coin
the game has been out way too long for you to not know this shit
Didn't know this. Good looking out.
what is the current code? none of the codes here don't work
We all went to sleep anon
Anything below 200cc is too slow
Was this absolutely necessary?
Do different mii costumes have different tricks?
I love Pauline bros. They made her so cool. The singing pose is one of the best stunts in the game and her song lines are such a nice detail. Pure SOUL
Based Pauline enjoyer.
Based Pauline enjoyer.
Wish they had kept the hat
Nicked the last wall of Wii Rainbow Road and got second to miss the triple star by three points. You can go ahead and euthanize me now.
I think I will make a new lobby. if there's at least 3 of you playing I'll keep it open for a few hours. will post code shortly
I know it's not viable now because of how much stage bloat there is but I liked the All Cup tour.
I create a lobby and then after roughly 60 seconds it closes and pops up "A communication error has occurred." So this is the power of Switch + ethernet adapter
How are people with modded switches connecting with each other?
you homosexuals are fucking useless, somebody make a fucking room already.
you host it then the lobbies I make instantly die (ethernet, no issues in smash bros surprisingly)
> That Peachette bike outfit ass
Damn I wasn't ready for this
Don’t even think there are any anons up to play that would make it worth opening a lobby anyway
You and I almost couldn't disagree more
My global rank is high enough that I only get 150-200cc matchmaking. The absolute hell that is mushrooms spawn. This game needs to rollback the item box changes, I am sick of golden mushrooms. I literally get them back to back from the upper 10 positions to the 1-6 positions, I'm actually peeveed to just ignore item boxes at this point.
mushrooms are good thoughbeit
MK8's item system is not based on race positions but distance and has been since vanilla
But yea the item changes in 8 aren't the best
why do tour tracks always have to have that spaghetti ass layout with giant arrows telling you wear to go because they're so poorly thought out
just make normal tracks you fucks
I hate them but by far my biggest issue is when they start ruining older tracks by shoehorning that route gimmick in. I want 3 laps of the actual track from the original game, not a shitty Tour-ified version that makes you race backwards on Lap 3 again like it's the most creative novel idea to have ever existed.
I like the new kalimari desert
They combined three different tracks into one. The individual laps were ones in Tour.
>Pauline sings during her actions
I waited to play the entire booster course until it was all released, and man, I'm pretty mixed on it. The new characters are great additions and it was criminal for some of them that they weren't already in. There's some great track additions like DK Mountain, Rainbow Road Wii, Bowser Castle 3, Yoshi's Island, Maple Treeway, Mushroom Gorge, and Peach Gardens. Also the death of both WaluWiggler meta and item bagging are enough together to outweigh the bad tracks being added to rotation.
But man, some of these tracks are awful. All of the bland-at-best city tracks that blend together and rely on giant glowing arrows to tell you where to go, nothing retro tracks like Mario Circuit 3 and Toad Circuit, stages like Coconut Mall and Choco Mountain being straight downgrades from their original forms, and the absolute butchering of Kalimari Desert. And some of them are downright ugly too. If it weren't for the balance changes I'd consider the addition of all the dogshit to rotation a net negative to the quality of the game
Need a lobby?
Feels like the hype for this wave is dead compared to the previous ones
thats what happens when DLC takes two fuckin years to roll out
I mean, the game still sucks anon.
Reminder that any mario kart tierlist where yoshi valley is bellow A tier is a shit list, I don't make the rules btw.
No need to post any more tier lists. These are facts, not opinions.
You must really suck at drifting
Close, I play inside drift bikes, I am in a different world from you
that explains it
This makes me wonder if what courses I like might be influenced due to solely using bikes and such every turn is engaged with differently compared to Karts
why's it not on the usual sites yet
it is on nsw2u, ziperto and on a lot of trackers
just read the thread here bro
so do ATVs actually control differently from karts or is that just a myth?
