Items ruin online
It's really driving me insane now. I would have won at least 5 of the last 10 of my online races had it not been for items. For god sake, just bring in boost races for matchmaking games. Nobody does Lucky Dip and it's easy to see why, just make boost races it's own bloody option for christ sake.

It could've been worse for you. It could've been Mario Kart-scale item rapefests.

At least in Mario Kart, I don't get 'Network Connection Error' right before the finish line when I'm about to win my first race of the day. I officially declare the netcode for this game beyond garbage.

For what its worth though, Mario Kart does have the worst items, all I want is a boost race option for online.

I agree, I would love to see a non-itme race mode.

Its a race mode with no items but a ton of boost pads, its all about maximizing your kart's stats

While a boost race mode is a cool idea... I don't see why people get so tied up about items. It's like they forgot all about Mario Kart, Crash Team Racing, and the like.

If you don't wanna get hit by an item, watch your back and hang on to an item you find useful.

Lucky dip/boost race is your answer;)

Sumo Digital should put the Boost Race mode in the Matchmaking. That would make me very happy.

I wouldn't mind a mode that included everything.

I agree it's tough to defend yourself, this game lacks a triple shell type powerup.

You make it sound like it's simple, it absolutely isn't. Getting hit by a Twister at close range can completely stuff you up, and there's little to nothing you can do about it.

It's extremely difficult to get any sort of consistency playing online because I keep getting bombarded. I'm not saying the mode should be scrapped, but there should be an alternative.

and another thing, get rid of the bloody slot machine minigame in the loading screens, totally ridiculous design choice.

Dude you are not listening to anyone. Boost race mode is in the game. Stop complaining and try out the mode because it's racing without items. If you wanna play that mode online you'll have to do lucky dip.... which does kind of suck because lucky dip isnt boost race alone but a lot of modes. But you can always try to vote for a boost race course so yeah. Otherwise play custom games

As for the slot machine, I don't find it bad at all. If you get something really good, you'll end up in the front, where you wont get the good items from the capsules, and pretty much become #1 target.

The game indicates what weapons a player got. If you see one with Twister, try to bloody stay away from his direct vicinity. If you see one with Firework, Ice Shots or Blowfish, don't be in a straight line infront of them/behind them. If you see someone with a glove, save your weapons. Etc. Or just keep something yourself to counter with.

It's really simple -once you get used to it-. Trust me.

And that ladies and gentlemen is why they should put it into the matchmaking as a separate gamemode.

Haha, what an oxymoronic post.

Whadya mean. Otherwise yw and I hope you enjoy the mode because it seems to help everything you are complaining about.

@green giant. I agree, but notably people do pick boost mode the most when playing lucky dip. Now and then battle race too but mostly boost mode
