@6ch6ris6 the controls aren't broken. But I guess people today are too stupid to adapt to control schemes on all platforms nowadays so it's no surprise that people would whine about swiping left and right.

i swipe left to the edge of my screen. character barely moves to the left ingame. my screen is fine. my phone is not broken and i have like over 20 years of gaming experience. i can trell when something just doesnt work.

also in general it is kinda stupid to even have this control scheme when you cant change the aspect ratio to widescreen. steering comes down to a too narrow degree. if the screen was widescreen you would have way more space to steer. but oh no it is a smartphone game so it has to be dumbed down, because people cant use both hands to control a game

I don't think they'd take away anything you've got up til now. The reason the system works is because they'll be consistently pushing out new tracks, and new characters that are proficient on those tracks. The rates of proficiency are going to change as the the tours come. Meaning, you're going to need a greater spread of characters to be scoring just as well as the last tour.

As far as leveling goes, it also doesn't make sense. unless the standard challenges would change with each tour, then it'd make more sense. But for now, we already have challenges for the tour for a limited time, so yeah.

it gets hard to do anything when it takes 50 150cc 1st place finishes to make it to the next level

So I really have no interest in playing this but my God is it popular with my kids and their friends. There's about 15 kids that live on our street and they always play together games/sports etc. When they got off the bus yesterday almost all of them were talking about it staring down at their phones playing. Was crazy to see. Guess they've got another hit on their hands!

You can't beat simple, addictive gameplay. Mario Kart has the added benefit of being well known and extremely approachable which is why it is doing so well right now. couple months down the line, we'll see who is still hanging around.

By getting rubies for free, obviously. They have you fire it once without paying and then I managed to get 45 rubies and fired it 10 times.

Downloaded the other day and wow! Im having way more fun than I have any right to lol

This is probably my most played mobile game ever. I’ve really got the hang of the controls. The rewards have been worth it, so far. Saved up for a 10 pull and got Toad and Peachette with some rare karts.

Haven’t spent a dime. Great game!

I got the 20 rubies and didn't really get much either, but I managed to scrounge enough for Bowser in the shop. I also found out the Gold subscription has a 2 week free trial, so I took advantage of that and managed to get another 45. Was more successful with that and got Mario and DK. Current collection:

Drivers: Baby Peach, Baby Daisy, Koopa Troopa, Shy Guy, Dry Bones, Mario, Peach, Yoshi, Daisy, Toad, Toadette, Bowser, Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, Metal Mario

Karts: Pipe Frame, Mushmellow, Koopa Dasher, Bull's-Eye Banzai, Daytripper, Turbo Yoshi, Soda Jet, Gold Blooper, B Dasher, Blue Badwagon

Gliders: Super Glider, Parafoil, Peach Parasol, Flower Glider, Gold Glider

Still haven't paid anything, but I'll have to cancel my Gold Pass before the 2 weeks is up or else I will.

EDIT: Got Yoshi from the Tour Gift.

@Bolt_Strike be advised that you manually have to cancel gold subscription before the free trial ends

i dont get why you guys spend your rubies on loot boxes ehm i mean pipes. it is way more efficient to use gold rush and buy new characters in the shop with gold. you can easily get over 4000 coins with one x10 gold rush, which is 25 rubies i believe

@6ch6ris6 completely agree. Gold rush coins guarantee you to buy the players rather than hope to get lucky with the pipes.

Anyone knows what level bonus is that you get for upgrading karts, gliders and drivers?
I mean the one that’s stated to be x1 when you reach level 2, x2 for level 3, x3 for level 4, x4 for level 5 and x5 for level 6?

At first I thought it was a bonus multiplier but than it wouldn’t make sense to give a x1 indicator at level 2 but no indicator at all at level 1. Could it be every level you go up you get an extra frenzy, bonus time and 2x multiplier stage for those karts, drivers and gliders?

I thought it's alright for a mobile game, hopefully the online multiplayer is free.

With the controls I preferred the simple version with the arrow, you can still drift with that method.

Otherwise free Mario kart pretty good for abit of entertainment, not a big fan on the microstranactions though.

@1UP_MARIO
The only problem is that the rare characters cost 12000 coins, the rare karts cost 10000. While duplicates are disappointing, I'd rather level them up that way rather than spending the coin. unless you're really good at unlocking a doing challenges, its hard to get a lot of coins.

Do you not get the high end characters at the shop until Lv. 12? Because I'm Lv. 10 now and I haven't seen any of them. Most of the characters I'm missing are the high end ones, so the Shop does me no good at this point until I start seeing them.

For reference, I'm just missing Baby Mario, Dry Bowser, Peachette, Musician Mario, and Pauline.

Wow. Ironically it is very hard to lose at this game. I'm trying to do the challenge for using Lightning 3 times, but it's so hard to stay in 8th place in this game. You can't stop to let other racers pass in this game, you can only steer in the wrong directions, you have to use your items when you pass an item box, and when you do, you usually end up passing multiple racers. I'm pretty much just botching the start and hoping I get a Lightning.

Meanwhile in 150cc for me, the rubber banding is real, it feels at times that enemies that get hit can recover very quickly. I even took a picture of me doing well (besides getting hit like twice), and well....

This happens more then it should for me, like you can't catch a breather, meanwhile 150cc in 8 is pretty relaxing for me.

In other news, saved up enough rubies for the 10 shots, didn't get anything too special with that, but I had 3 more shots left. I GOT THE CHARACTER I WANTED THE MOST, Dry bowser!...now Dry Bowser is gonna be a golden pass reward, but oh well, mine will be level 2 soon.
