Ok fellow forum friends. Can anyone explain how I did this on CTR? At a hairpin in CTR, when I landed a little jump turn, I got a crazy instant boost that ricocheted me another direction at the 4-5 second mark, which was an amazingly fast way get around this hairpin. Anyone know how to do this? I haven't been able to reproduce this. Look carefully, there's even a sonic-boom-like boost cloud when I ricochet turn. (if youtube shows a low res video, set it to 720p to see the boost cloud) I land drift boost wheelies all the time, but this isn't anything I've seen before.

@Woomy_NNYes I make it around the turn by both tapping the brake button and turning while in midair. I believe that's how you made it around the hairpin without loosing your speed boost.

“As always, the Pit Stop will be stocked with new and returning characters and cosmetic items, which players can unlock using Wumpa Coins*. With all this content available, there will also now be a way for players to fast-track their Wumpa Coin collection if they like. Starting in early August, players will have the option to purchase Wumpa Coin bundles from their game console stores to supplement the Coins they earn by playing. This option won’t change the game’s core mechanics players will still earn Wumpa Coins by playing the game in any mode, just as before. They will just able to purchase additional coins if they choose.”

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

I didn't buy the $60 CTR. So, I missed out on that DLC(since you can't buy the DLC seperate). I wonder if this means they'll be making that DLC available to buy on it's own. We'll see, I guess. Seems like a good sign

As long as I can still get enough wumpas to earn all the grand Prix pit stop items, I don't mind. Though I did sort of think microtransactions would make an appearance but I just hoped for the best. Getting that Nitros oxide edition gear somehow would be cool though, not £20 extra worth of cool though. In terms of pre ordering that version in the first place, how can you decide if you Wana get extra stuff in a game when you haven't even played it yet?!

Anyone else have this bug in Pitstop?

Pitstop won't let me purchase the $500 'Bed Time' decal for nostalginator car. I have the car and money, but buying it doesnt give me the decal.

Anybody still playing this, for the grand prix, what I need is to play a friendly race online at the Prehistoric Playground track to unlock the challenge of Friend or Foe and Friendly meeting.

@Woomy_NNYes I haven't had any problems with the pit stop in this grand prix but have had problems with it in the past. It usually clears up after a while.

Hey,
Anyone have problems with the online whereby you try to join with friends but just says not joinable all the time??

Hayleys45

Woomy_NNYes

@Hayleys45
Yup! It always says "Not Joinable", if they are online(I think, regardless of which game they are playing). Repeated & constant disappointment lead to my giving up Not sure why Nintendo lets you friend people if you can't see a status when they are actually racing online, or ping your friends to invite them to race online.

Maybe the microtransactions aren't coming to Switch, to have microtransactions on Switch the game has to have a warning very visible on the store page (see Daemon X Machina for example).

Pretty good point there. It's strange how silent things have been regarding wumpa coin bundles coming to the Switch.
I mean, I won't be shocked if it comes to the Switch. Seems like Activision is mirroring what Rocket League has already been doing on the Switch. But, in line with your point, Rocket League had the dlc currency system in place when the game hit the market.

Hello everyone, i got this game a couple of weeks ago. I really enjoyed the story and the mechanics are so much fun but i have not been able to find a single online match so far on Switch, am i the only one having this problem? It has honestly been so disappointing because i couldn't play the game online. I always find one or two people max in a lobby and we never make it past the loading screen. Is the game dead on Switch? Or am i having some kind of problem?
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Tell me about it, how are you ever suppose to invite friends to play online with you.
Hopefully they'll bring out a fix for this in the future.

If it's true that the Switch won't be getting the microtransactions, that would be a cool boost to that particular version.

Online races work here in the eastern US. So, its not dead. Are you trying to do battles or races? I could see battles having less participation.

To my knowledge, geography plays a part in Switch matching. In the eastern US, here, i typically see 5-8 in my race match ups, sometimes less. 8 is the game's max. If it's midnight or later i tend to see less people getting matched. So, that makes me wonder how favorable your geography is. Possibly what internet speeds are in your area.

There is a silver lining to racing less people; less people =less brutal weapons being fired, and bigger payouts. If you only have 3, the worst you can do is 3rd, and it seems like you still get the bigger 3rd place payout. Being last at 8th place pays less then being last at 3rd, or4th.

@Woomy_NNYes Thanks for replying!
I think my problem isn't just geography, i found a discord for CTR players on Switch and I still was not able to play any games. Every time i join their lobby and they start the race, the game says everyone left in the loading screeb and i get kicked back to the menu while they continue playing the race so it's just me. My internet connection is definitely not bad and i play many other games with it and some of them are demanding when it comes to connections so I don't know what's the problem! The online experience with CTR has been disappointing to say the least.

Right on. With a good connection, i have seen the issues you mention once or more if I do several races. So, i think some of this may be normal with the games current condition.

A successful online race with a friend!
A friend of mine got CTR yesterday, and I was able to race him online. Everywhere still said, "not joinable", EXCEPT when I clicked on Private Match. Once in the Private Match lobby, my friend's name was there in the upper left just below my name (like the list of players for regular online matchmaking races). While in that Private Match lobby, you can go in Settings tab, and pick the track & difficulty level, and he an I raced each other, along with some AI. So, I think I saw someone else on this thread (a ways back) say they were able to do a Private Match. You and whoever you're trying to race need to both be in the same lobby to see each other. Otherwise, we weren't communicating, I didn't try to do any other type of online races.

And yes, I got the 600 Nitro points for beating my friend in a private match online race.
