      That they stopped supporting it.

      Compared to other games Crash Team Racing's microtransactions are so ignorable that you wouldn't even realize they are in the game unless you sought it out.

    It succeeded well enough, but it could've been stronger, and still relevant, if the online was better.
    Apparently porting it to PC would've accomplished this, plus 60 fps which is vital for karting games I guess.

    Actually a pretty competent recreation of ctr, it's just mangled by a shitty shop system they were probably forced to include. Also while blue fire is extremely satisfying to maintain for single player and time trials, it is terrible for casual multiplayer play so skill differences in a lobby feel almost insurmountable even with items that are supposed to even the playing field. I dont know how you could go about fixing that without purists throwing a fit though.

      I think the best way to fix online balance if the game ever gets ported to PC would be to make a new racing mode in online.

      >Fun mode
      Double the usefulness of all items, re-balance all items to be borderline unfair. This will be the fun gamemode casual players enjoy, being good at keeping blue fire will matter less if people are spamming you with blue orbs, clocks and missiles
      >Competition mode
      Everything is exactly the same as now, except items are turned off. Players can still crash into each other so it's different than fighting against ghosts, but races are measured more in raw skill than in item luck.

      Casual players will flock to fun mode because they just want a fun chaotic kart race. Speed autists will flock to Competition mode because generally they all hate items with a passion

              >Turbo track
              I remember beating it and seething hard because William clearly lets you win at the end, he loses all reserves on purpose, just before entering the last turn in lap 3.
              Personally the one I took the most time to beat was Dragon Mines, not because the dev was faster than me but I was in a race to get ahead of the trolley on the third lap, I ended beating William time like for 1+ second lol

              Yeah. I wish I knew that, but the grind was real and I reset until I got the U-Turns every lap. My thumbs almost became rock-hard.

      The worst part is that online uses a different item rotation to offlien multiplayer. There's a shitton of orbs and clocks online. You never see them online. Online also has the super engine which is fucking awful, worse than thunderclouds in MK Wii.

    Dogshit online. That's really it.

    Mario Kart 8 lobbies are so fucking fast, the time between a race ending and starting is one or two minutes at most.

    In CTR NF that shit can take like five minutes. The load times are insane, then you have to watch a podium animation, then back to the lobby which usually disbands and you have to search again.
