Might seem obvious after playing it, but multiplayer pipe points are based off your score, so it's better to use your highest scoring combo instead of grinding new stuff. This also means battle is pretty bad since I can't get higher than ~13k in multiplayer, while it's easy to get 20k+ on some racing maps. You also can get x2 with gold pass for easy fills.
>>
>>1024677
Yeah I don't see myself playing battle too much after filling out the multiplayer challenges.

Battle multiplayer is pretty fun. I hated regular multiplayer because of the bullshit with lag and your items not affecting someone so you dropped to last place, but in Battle mode it's so chaotic that it doesn't really matter too much.

My strategy is to try to get all the good stuff to at least level 6 double cap, and then save tickets for the stuff that keeps being relevant forever. Before I can really commit to this though I have to max out all my shop commons and supers. I was about to and then bam level 8. And now the added even more stuff.

Strategy for ranked cup:
1. Clear all cups/stars/challenges and get all the Level/Cap tickets you're going to get. Get familiar with the ranked cup course layouts. Use the quick tickets from multiplayer to get the grind over with faster. (Wed.-Fri.)
2. Use best available D/K/G with existing loadouts without spending anything. Ideally get into first or as high as you can, but BARELY in first. Don't overbake [less than 5000 points over second]. (Sat.-Sun.)
3. Wait until someone passes you. Then the algorithm will favor you again. Gather more stuff from pipes and the regular grind if you can. Use the shop if needed.
4. When someone passes you in ranked, spend the minimum amount of tickets, starting with cap/points tix (max to cap), then K/G levelups, then driver levelups. Just spend one cap/levelup at a time. Spend/grind/repeat until you get back into first. Again, don't overbake (Sun.-Tues.)
5. Profit when rankings are announced next Wed. night?

I hope they add more than just 2 battle arenas for tour, there's still New York and Paris ones left to see.
Also, let's not forget, according to datamining stuff, there's 2 more different battle modes like Coin runners and the new "spiral battle" that will come soon on next tours. (Wondering if they're gonna put different battle music for these game modes, people for sure will get tired of MK8 SNES Battle course 1 for so many tours.)

I've been playing for 11 months, and it's the only city I haven't seen yet.
Most of my driver gaps are covered by drivers with several New York tracks.
Prediction: After Autumn Tour (11/2-11/16), probably New York (11/16-11/30), then some random maybe winter theme (11/30-12/14), then Xmas tour (12/14-12/28), then New Year 2023 tour (12/28-1/11).

It still exists in the Cup races (single player vs. bots) for Gold Pass only [pic].
But 200cc is mainly used for daily grinding; top scores are usually best done in 150cc (unless there's a course with a lot of dead spots where it's hard to keep combo.)
In this tour, I haven't seen 200cc in multiplayer races yet, but didn't play it every day. I think there was 200cc in last tour's MP races when battle mode was down, so maybe it will come back.

It's a completely new era. We can't know what value they will be putting on ranked rewards going forward. Seeing as this is the only good way of them sucking up our coins/rubies (by rank-locking items) I see the items possibly being very valuable.
So far the only good ranked reward was the blockhead suit.

Yes. But I'm doing well enough in ranked with a crappy loadout. Plan:
1.) Wait until the trailer for the next tour on Friday. Is "Autumn Tour" interesting, or same old shit? What is the new driver/kart reward? (>>1028404)
2.) Decide whether to hold onto D/K/G tickets for next tour, or go all-in for week 2 ranked. Kind of pointless to go for 1st place; top 3 is good enough.
3a.) If holding back, maybe raise a glider or kart up a level to get some breathing room.
3b.) If going all-in, do it this weekend. Karts and gliders first, then Petey. Only to level 3 or 4 at first; hold onto level 6 to stop Tuesday night sleepers. About half of my top 10 opponents have Petey; 2 or 3 may choose to take him to 6 if they have tickets.

Interesting. I always thought the brooms were small or medium.
Surprised the Tanooki Kart, Jukebox, and Bruisers were relatively small. Also, the new red Vampire Flyer is massive; possibly useful with L6 Gold Petey on Ghost Valley 2R/T.
>>

I don't like this chart, it's misleading as it takes length into account where as width is much more important.
For example I'd place Tanooki and Tropical in Large, they're the same width as those karts.
Brooms are incredibly small, the only reason this shitty chart puts them in XL is their useless length.

It would be very interesting having new york 1 as a ranked track, it's so old and has such a limited top shelf that they could treat it as a new track with a lot of new top shelf items

>>1033121 (me)
OK, it's same old shit, so I'm going with plan 3b.
City tours are fun, but city tracks are not a good investment for tickets, so may as well spend them now.
Better to throw tickets on a coinboxer than on featured banana drivers (Mario Sunshine, Yellow Mii) in a tour where tokens are probably going to be on the courses, not from hitting opponents.

To be fair, the battle courses are actually quite good for scoring with Coin Box.

Shame her coverage is so rough considering how many people love her design. Would be nice if she got a streak of new tracks similar to others like Holidaisy or LM King Boo, though she’ll have some use either way next tour.

Off that note, it’s quite weird how the main featured drivers next tour are from LA and New York despite the new track being Vancouver 3.

Welcome back Pauline, Queen of New York.
Rubies for boobies.

>>1035512
Pauline fast fact: Base Pauline has FAR more voice lines than anyone else in mario kart tour (besides peachette). This is because they were recorded for the initial tour, before the dev team wildly scrolled back how much effort they put into sourcing voice lines.

Status: Got passed in ranked, so spent some kart and glider tickets to (barely) get back into first. Still holding back on using Gold Petey.
It feels like my Boo Lake drivers are being suppressed by the algorithm to bait me into throwing tickets on Petey. Didn't have nearly as much problem improving scores (~2k) on the other 2 courses after spending fewer kart/glider tickets.

Pick your favorites from the top ranked drivers.
>>
I only started playing during the anniversary tour; both Pink Ninja Shy Guy and Petey are in my shop today, do I need to buy them?
>>
>>1036929
I would go for pink ninja, he has a lot of 2022 tracks so for a new player he should give you more raw coverage
>>
>>1036938
Petey is ranked much higher in that image than Pink Ninja is though
>>
>>1037018
I didn't notice that petey now has 22 non city tracks while pinja has 21 so, yeah, he's now a better option.
>>
>>1036929
I love Pinja, and he has been clutch for me all year. But White Tanooki Mario is probably the best mega banana driver right now, though Pinja is still very good.
Petey is the best boomerang driver right now, with nobody else really close. Rosa Volendam and Vacation Luigi are too city-heavy, and Mario Samurai is way past peak.
Gold Chuck is the latest greatest coinboxer (not counting Mii suits), with Meowser starting to fall off. Too many new coinboxers this year (Mario King, Gold Petey, Thai Daisy, Gold Chuck, Gold Egg Yoshi).
For Lucky 7, I still like Mario Satellaview [great coverage] and Nabbit. The game is overdue for a new great L7 driver; they're useful in Battle mode.
>>
>>1037102
>The game is overdue for a new great L7
My level 7 Chuck has been incredible for ranked for several weeks since he was added, is he not considered good?
>>
>>1037307
He is, but he's pretty old now, and all items peak at some point, fade into irrelevance and then are replaced by newer ones. for example, chef mario during the second half of 2020 was a top tier driver but now just last tour was useful
>>
Fuck yeah, showed up in my spotlight shop finally. Only like 3 or 4 coin gliders total left.
>>
>>1037038
>>1037102
So Petey would be the better buy over Pinja since Petey is newer and has more tracks currently right
>>
>>1037471
Yeah, I feel like samurai tour items are almost done with getting new buffs. They came around late march while piranha items are from mid july
>>
>>1037495
Ok, one more thing, the autumn tour trailer shows that LA Laps 3 will be in the next tour; and Petey has LA Laps 3 and LA Laps 3T, do you think Petey will still be in the shop rotation next tour because of this?
>>
>>1037547
Probably but who really knows? Sometimes nintendo takes really weird decisions with this game
>>
>>1037547
Get him while you can. You can invest on him later if you want.
>>
>>1037678
I have 470 rubies now, is having enough to buy 2 more drivers after Petey enough leeway
>>
>>1037710
Petey is one of the best drivers right now, so yes.
>>
The next tour should be the tour between the autumn and winter celebrations with no celebration running, and the next mii suit is a cow or bull which implies Moo Moo Farm/Meadows
….But neither Moo Moo Farm or Meadows has been datamined and the track ID list shows no gap between 1011663 (Luigi Raceway X) and 1011664 (Royal Raceway, named Peach Circuit in the files where Moo Moo Farm would go, and no gap either between 1012549 (Maple Treeway X) and 1012549 (Mushroom Gorge) for Moo Moo Meadows
There is however a very big gap between 1010346 (Los Angeles 3X) and 1010360 (New York 1) for a new track that likely starts with M
Madrid is the next tour isn’t it?
>>
>>1038026
I was on the Moo Moo train but this got me leaning towards Madrid.
>>
>>1038029
The other likely track that’s closest to release is GBA Luigi Circuit since an even larger gap exists between 1010837 (Cheep Cheep Island X) and 1010860 (Sky Garden) for it, and the texture for its rain puddles is already in the game with the filename Puddle_LC making it pretty obvious that it’ll be released soon
>>
>>1038026
I swear if we get cow tracks and farmer Daisy doesn't get a couple of top-shelf options for them, I'm going to send a rude letter to Nintendo.
>>
So again; 471 rubies and both Pinja and Petey in shop, buying Petey would be generally recommended?
>>
saw a S+9 Battle guy online, what the fuck
>>
>>1038103
Yes
>>
>>1038103
I'd be tempted to get both, but I know it's hard for newer players to get level tickets fast enough to get maximum value from a driver before it decreases.
Both Pinja and Petey are good, but you have more potential upside with Petey (26 courses) than Pinja (29 courses). But it's really close.
I've had lots of fun laying down banana carpets on Maple Treeway, Ninja Hideaway, Coconut Mall, Piranha Plant Slide, and Baby Park with Pinja this year.
>>
>>1038193
I decided to just get Petey
I want to save for when Meowser and King Mario are available in the shop, and I already got Gold Yoshi and Gold Chuck from the shop, are any of the other rare gold drivers worth buying if they show up?
>>
>>1038220
At this point, honestly, not really. I know Shy Guy and Dry Bowser have decent coverage, but they aren't the most relevant Drivers. And Koopa Freerunning and Dry Bones are in a similar boat AND are small, so not good.

Aw yeah, just edged ahead. I already got kart and gold Petey but now that top 3 has a gold pipe I'm done doing tank weeks where I place 20

Update to ID gaps:
Gap between 1011702 (Luigi Raceway) and 1011708 (Peach Circuit/Royal Raceway), only track this could be alphabetically is N64 Moo Moo Farm
Gap between 1012477 (Coconut Mall) and 1012483 (DK Summit), only track this could be alphabetically is Wii Daisy Circuit
>>
>>1039239
Whoops, for the N64 track I forgot it could be N64 Mario Raceway as well
And the gap for this is only 5 numbers wide compared to the 14 number gap between LA and New York for Madrid so Madrid should still be coming first probably

Actually, the new ID gaps might just be for the R/T versions of Luigi Raceway and Coconut Mall, that would make more sense…

Is it a bad thing for drivers to have a lot of city tracks in their favourites?
>>
>>1039313
Yes, because city tours are rare, and each city is only seen once or twice a year at best.
Some of the New York tracks in this tour haven't been seen in nearly 3 years.
>>
>>1039239
>Daisy Circuit
They better not fucking DARE put this garbage track in.
>>
>>1039318
Like I said, I think it’s more likely that the gaps are just for Luigi Raceway R/T and Coconut Mall R/T
>>
>>1039321
Actually I think I’m mistaken on that, R/T tracks are listed before T (X in the IDs) tracks alphabetically, and if you note the IDs for Luigi Raceway there’s already a gap between its R and T versions for its R/T, same for Coconut Mall, so the gaps really do seem to be for N64 Moo Moo Farm/Mario Raceway and Wii Daisy Circuit after all
Of course this doesn’t mean they’re coming very soon, tracks like GBA Luigi Circuit and Yoshi Desert and DS Shroom Ridge and Peach Gardens and GCN Waluigi Stadium or Mushroom Bridge/City or DK Mountain have had ID gaps present for much longer

So I used a tracker and with cities included Penguin Toadette, Samurai Mario, White Tanooki Mario, Pinja, White Birdo, Volendam Rosalina, Black Birdo, Cat Rosalina and Dr Peach would give me the most coverage
I’m also interested in Thai Daisy and Meowser because they’re high on the tier list, as well as King Mario, but they don’t seem to give as much benefit
Also White Tanooki Mario is in my shop today and he’d give me quite a bit of coverage which includes Vancouver 3R/T which I don’t otherwise have a driver for, should I buy him

That looks like a decent plan, but use caution when using the optimizers. Some advice:
1. They optimize coverage, not quality coverage or skill. So you might be happy in a weekly ranked cup with Samurai Mario, Pinja, and Meowser, but not so much with White Birdo, Penguin Toadette, and Cat Rosalina.
2. As you noticed, the coinbox coverage is weak. You may end up wanting to get additional drivers to improve this later.
3. No coverage optimizers that I know consider matching driver skills to glider skills (e.g. banana glider with banana driver) or kart size (i.e. big karts to help coinboxers.). They just do only one type of item (D/K/G) at a time.
4. Nobody knows what new courses or items will come in the future, so keep a flexible approach to the game. Don't get locked into a plan around too few drivers/items, and watch as the game goes in a different direction. Try new things.
5. Set aside the competitive aspect and make sure these are drivers (+ karts/gliders) you like and want to spend a lot of time with. [see pic; obey Aqua] Nothing feels worse than throwing a lot of tickets on something you hate for ranked, and then have it appear in your loadouts over and over again.

#5, example
This kart looks like a real baby cart that I had a bad accident with when I was very young. I forgot about it until after I took it to level 4, and now I just wish I could delete it from my account. Using it gives me PTSD, especially with a baby driver.

Likely upcoming tracks based on ID gaps:
>GBA Luigi Circuit (31)
>GCN Waluigi Stadium and/or Mushroom City/Bridge and/or DK Mountain (29)
>DS Peach Gardens and/or Shroom Ridge (20)
>Amsterdam Drift 3 (14)
>New track alphabetically between “Lo” and “Ne”, likely Madrid (13)

>GBA Snow Land (5)
>GBA Yoshi Desert (5)
>Wii Daisy Circuit (5)
>Bangkok Rush 2 and 3 (10)
>Singapore Speedway 3 (5)
Apparently the larger the gap size the closer the track is to release so the first 5 tracks on the list are close

Probably doesn’t matter. Pinja is slowing down, but it has nothing to do with city buffs. He’s not another Sunshine Maro case.

Dude you have pretty decent potential. As you are, try grinding good frenzies with your coinbox/lucky 7/boomerang drivers. Max out their points with your tickets, too, but you shouldn't need to invest level tickets.

I do find it has good value for its price, so only get it if you're serious about the game. You don't have to renew each month either.

For me it is, mainly because I take advantage of the daily +600 coins and it's the best way to get extra high end tickets that it's not as expensive as the premium challenges

I know it's super grindy and tiresome to do but you're really limiting your score by not raising your player level

>>1041371
I just the level 43 lol
Yeah anon you should keep grinding until each 1st place gives you about 2% experience or less.
>>
>>1040792
There we go.
NYM T, take Pauline to 800 base points and Mario's Mustache to 400. Use the black baseball kart. grind for a run with a Lucky 7 frenzy and a coin frenzy. The target action count here is 180 with lucky 7, if you're feeling grindy.

LAL T, Gold Boo is a fairly safe driver to take to level 4 to get red coins. Or Swimwear Rosa. They're the same size. If you already got all the free driver tickets for the tour you should get the tier shop ticket, they're worth it in a pinch (unless you haven't unlocked that one yet? I don't remember which tier that you unlock those shop slots at).
For karts you have a nice level 4 (suny?) surf sailer, finish the base points on that one and consider uncapping, it's level 4 after all. Gliders wise the sunset clouds, nothing you have to change with them. Grind for a run with atleast one coinbox frenzy and a few singles here, target is 200 with coin box if you're feeling grindy.

Vancouver 3 is an obvious loadout, nothing to ticket here. Boomerang action target is 195, but that is assuming you're able to get a boombox, which can take some time. You should still be able to get a very high score thanks to your Knight Luigi.

All in all you have lots left to do for this week, and you should be able to win pretty easily. If you have some extra time, you should grind some player levels. They make a big difference. Well, until level 200 that is.
>>
I have no giant banana drivers, should I get White Tanooki or Pink Ninja from the shop?
>>
>>1041615
Depends on your other investments, Pinja has alot of overlaps with other popular drivers, but can serve as a great account pillar.
White Tanooki is pretty safe, he is newer and already has plenty of value, though he also has some overlaps.
>>
>>1041656
These are the drivers that would apparently give me the most new stuff >>1039685
Thing is that Pink Ninja would mostly give me new cities, and he’s older than White Tanooki and got 4 Vancouver tracks this tour, does that mean he’s slowing down in viability as compared to White Tanooki
>>
>>1041706
Definitely go with White Tanooki then.
Always assume that every appearance of a city will be it's last for at least a year.

What do you think Tour’s future will be once MK8 DLC finishes and releases all Tour original tracks?
>>
>>1042839
We already know that the DLC doesn't have enough room to hold all the tour nitros and retros.
As it looks now Nintendo is trying to hard-push every single retro ever with a streak of 2 new track families and a new rt every tour.
I think we will be getting more RMXs.
>>
>>1042839
They'll ruin it with in-game ads and promotional tie-ins.
Imagine McDonald's Mario driving the 2024 Honda Civic with the Japan Airlines glider.

Also one point; the following object strings were apparently added to Tour in the 3.0 update:
>RRoadMovingDash1
>RRoadMovingDash2,
>StarRingPink
>WarpTube

What do I do if I started 2 weeks ago and have no HE gliders, I'm still 1st in my ranked but should I buy one now or keep saving rubies
>>
>>1043307
Winning ranked is pretty easy until about rank 20 iirc
Buying new stuff with your rubies is always a gamble but if you're new you can't go wrong with the top rated stuff. Even if you don't need them for ranked, you can use them to get good scores all around.
You should also save coins and buy the HE stuff that pop up on the shop.
>>
>Actually currently in second on this shitshow of a ranked cup
I'm fucked next week though, outside of LA Laps 3.
>>
Should I prioritize the drivers who are in both the top 10 in this image and in the list of drivers that give me the most coverage when buying new drivers? Is Thai Daisy only going to be in the shop once Bangkok Rush returns? And Meowser hasn’t been in any of the shop rotations so far even though he’s top tier, why?
>>
>>1042839
No reason remaining Tour tracks can't be retro features in MK9. They wouldn't have revamped the game so much recently only to kill it off soon.
>>
>>1043506
Do you think Tour will have future city tracks beyond mob_md, mob_at and mob_or? Those are the only remaining cities datamines indicate, which fit the 3 remaining unknown cities in the MK8 DLC
>>
>>1043504
This list is fanmade, the spotlight shop isn't. Nintendo decides which drivers to put in it per tour, for you to have top shelf stuff on the new tracks.
A driver that's very useful but less available than others becomes more valuable in the eyes of fans.
>>
>>1043586
When do you think Meowser will be available in the shop? And Thai Daisy and Volendam Rosalina likely won’t be in the shop until Bangkok and Amsterdam appear again in a tour?
>>
>>1043504
The spotlight shop only contains drivers which appear in ranked and are not city drivers (and are older than 4 tours).
IIRC, Meowser hasn't had a ranked appearance since the shop was added.
This tierlist is a very good guide on what you should be looking out for and which drivers are hot at the moment (Ranked + ACR appearances).
Ultimately I'd advise to prioritize drivers with the top 4 skills, as they will replace most drivers with non-top 4 skills, unless you don't mind going off-meta and just playing for fun.
>>
>>1043628
Wait, then why is Meowser still near the top if he hasn’t been a ranked driver for that long?
>>
>>1043639
Large hitbox and many ACR appearances. The most consistent driver for the past year. He even got buffed on Twilight House recently, which is a battle course so it has an extremely high score ceiling.
>>
>>1043640
But I only started during the anniversary tour this year so ranked appearances before then are pretty irrelevant to me
>>
>>1043536
I am sure they can add more tracks to the list, right?
>>
>>1043662
I'm sure his ranked value will pick back up, it's just that most of his tracks are shelved for now.
Look out for 3DS Bowser's Castle N, Wario Shipyard R, Waluigi Pinball N and R/T and Rock Rock Mountain N and R. Those are some of the most fun high-action Meowser tracks, and we should see them soon since it's usually around this time of year that many of these would return.
>>
>>1043671
Do you think Rock Rock Mountain and 3DS Rainbow Road will come back around wave 3’s release as a tie-in of sorts?
>>
>>1043674
I hope so
>>
>>1043693
If that random twitter person is true about Waluigi Stadium being replaced with Maple Treeway in wave 3 I really wish they had instead replaced London with Vancouver, Vancouver 3 debuted this tour and it’d be good timing to put Vancouver in MK8 now rather than waiting for more than a year for it

The update increased the ID gap sizes for:
GBA Snow Land: 5 > 11
Amsterdam Drift 3: 15 > 30
So now the most likely upcoming tracks are:
>GBA Luigi Circuit: 31
>Amsterdam Drift 3: 30
>GCN DK Mountain or Mushroom Bridge/City or Waluigi Stadium: 29
>DS Peach Gardens and Shroom Ridge: 20
Also there are new ID gaps:
>GBA Bowser’s Castle 4 (5)
>an SNES Bowser’s Castle (5)
>Berlin 4 or a new track alphabetically between “Berlin” and “Hill” (5)
>Wii Mario Circuit/Moo Moo Meadows/Moonview Highway (7)
I think the ID gap of 7 means we might see Moo Moo Meadows in the next tour

This is always a very good idea, if you feel like being patient until friday (and potentially missing out on the driver you want to go for, since he's not guaranteed to be there every day)
>>
>>1044480
I’m interested in Meowser like I said before, and if Amsterdam 3 is imminent like the ID gaps suggest Volendam Rosalina should be in the shop with it and I’ve noticed that she seems to have been in every ranked cup since I’ve been playing
>>
how much have you spent on this game
>>
>>1044620
5 a month (total around 190) for gold pass, around 50 or so on the premium challenges, another 30 on comemorative shit and like 80 on packs.
190 + 50 + 30 + 80 ~ 350, -+ a bit since i might not remember all.
Pretty low over 3 years for a game like this. I play every day so it's worth it for me.
>>
>>1044620
$300-$350, from quick estimates
>>
>>1044620
A couple hundred, mainly because of that period of rapid fire Daisy alts a few months back.
Now i just stick to the gold pass and might grab the cheap premium challenge board when it has driver tickets.

I hashed it out, playing since near launch I have spent $181.19 USD using staggered gold pass strats, a couple special offers, and one or two premium challenges.

I have never directly bought rubies, or bought anything that cost over five bucks. My coverage is obscenely good and I am happy. I have been playing Mario Kart Tour for 1116 days at an average cost of 16 cents a day.

Why is this pisshole of a game so fucking blatant with how it cheats and how often it does? The above was all in the same fucking race.
>>
>>1045521
I've noticed how much the bots cheat too and that's why you should always get rid of their badges to reduce their intensity. they detect when you are tapping the screen too much, I bet they were programmed to be annoying as fuck when you get a frenzy so they shoot you as soon as you stop tapping when the frenzy ends but to me the biggest offenders are when you use a mushroom and all the bots also get a speed boost, this has already being confirmed too, and when during the race, the RNG locks and you keep getting the same combination of items after restarting several times or keep being hit by lighting/blue shell in the same spot over and over again

>Is there any way to predict the future value of a driver?
You can predict a Driver will be bad if their starting selection of Tracks is mostly cities.
You can predict a Driver will be useful if they have one of the strong items, like a new Coin Box or Lucky 7.
However, you can't predict if a specific Driver will be a top 10 Driver down the line, that's up to luck.

Nah, the entire 2020 and 2021 were like this until they brought kamek. The game survived those awful tours during the pandemic so obviously it won't die now. My guess is that they blew their load during the first half of the year and now we're having the improved version of the regular filler tours, next for the winter celebration we should get a new snow track (gba snow land probably) with another reskin from rosalina or daisy since this year they focused on luigi and those 2 a lot, then the return of all the holliday drivers with merry mountain and then maybe finally a new driver for new year

>>1046213
This might be just a theory of mine, but probably the reason why Nintendo seems to be afraid to include new racers, it would be because they're gonna test the new driver in 260 karts if it doesn't have huge looking mistakes (like pic related as an example). Probably the most economic option for them could be making new alts of characters that are already in, like Kitsune Luigi as an example, hope someday they break the mold by adding new characters (easy mode for them: reusing Wiggler and Queen Bee designs from MK7)
>>
>>1046488
They added Petey a few months ago.
The issue is that they keep giving the same few characters alts and they're adding a fucking DK track and aren't giving a DK character an alt in favor of the shittiest character in the franchise.

The leaves glider is definitely a commemorative glider because it's too pretty but I could see the cow suit and the cow offroader as ranked rewards. They are no better than gold petey with the red offroader so it's possible

So next tour we’ll need to hope we can put together coverage for 8 new tracks - DK Mountain + it’s T, R and R/T as well as Riverside Park + it’s T, R and R/T; and there’s no way to tell which drivers will have them as favorites until the tour starts right
>>
>>1046982
Actually, 10 tracks.
Sky Garden R/T and Baby Park R/T are coming aswell.
>>
>>1046986
That sounds intimidating, so the ranked cups will likely be something like DK Mountain, Sky Garden R/T and Riverside Park T/R/RT for one and Riverside Park, Baby Park R/T and DK Mountain T/R/RT for the other?

>>1046996
Sadly it's entirely possible.

There are several burnout points for new players:
1. The level (tier 30?) where you go from up 3 levels to only up 2 levels per week. At the same time, you stop getting all the new player bait and freebies to help you.
2. The level (tier 40?) where you go from up 2 levels to only up 1 level per week. At the same time, you've completed most of the "standard challenges" and aren't constantly getting recharged with mega rubies.
3. The level (~ tier 50) where you start getting actual competition even if you're serious, and may have to make the choice to either pay up and buy the challenges/rubies or lose.

I got Gold King Bob-omb in the King Mario pipe a few months ago.
He hasn't helped me yet, but is a decent coinboxer with OK coverage on older courses. Large size like Meowser and Gold Petey. Currently grinding him to single cap so I can throw some tickets on him if I need him. Grinding coinboxers is also good for collecting tokens; also did this with my other under-used coinboxers this tour. (Gold King Boo, Thai Daisy, Pink Gold Peach, Peach Vacation, Mario Hakama).

Achievement milestones for new players:
1. Being able to collect all of the grand stars. This is reliant on..
2a. Being able to get 10k on every course or almost every course. Typically around Tier 30. You should have several items around Level 3 to do this. Takes 4 - 6 months.
2b. Having top shelf coverage for (almost) every course in a tour. They're always debuting new courses with paywalls to get you to spend rubies/$$, but not as bad as it used to be. Becomes easier around Tier 40.
3. Getting at least 20k on every course or almost every course. Typically around Tier 50. Starting to get a few items up to around Level 6. Takes 10 - 12 months.
4. 30k, etc... I'm not there yet myself.

Been there done that. Classic "Mario-Karted" moments:
1. Fighting into 1st place, then getting blue shelled.
1a. Getting blue shelled when not in 1st place.
1b. Getting blue shelled while items are loading, and the first item is Super Horn.
2. Needing a triple frenzy run for ranked, but constant pulling two coins and a banana.
3. Getting hit by your own green shell after bouncing off of several walls.
4. Having a great combo run ended by a random item on the track around a blind corner. Bonus if you left it there yourself on Lap 1.

You need to stay in 5th place to get the boomerang frenzy and if you're grinding the third track you could get up to 3 coinbox drivers on your lobby to increase the odds of getting the boombox. In my case I got one and a coin frenzy

How to boombox in MKT:
https://youtu.be/36BjC-Sk6v0
>>
>>1048684
Boombox is a term for getting a boomerang frenzy and stealing the coins of a coinbox bot, it's pretty tricky to get but it will get you the highest score possible, better than regular coinbox frenzies
https://youtu.be/Czko7KTGUcE
>>
Coinbox, boomerang and giant banana seem to be the best items so I should prioritize drivers who have them right?
>>
>>1048714
And lucky 7 too

>>1048691
>>1048693

>>
Should I use quick tickets to try and get White Tanooki or save the tickets and rubies
>>
>>1048768
You haven't gotten white tanooki at the shop yet? That's weird, he has regular odds of appearance. Regarding rubies, I'd say he's worth buying but you should save some if you're still missing coverage and important drivers that are coming soon like meowser or santa bowser
>>
>>1048775
Thing is that White Tanooki Mario would give a lot of coverage compared to Meowser (3) and Santa Bowser (2), I know the Bowsers are coinboxers but I also need a HE giant banana driver since I don’t have one yet
>>
Do you miss it, Goldbros?
Do you miss having 200cc days in multiplayer?
>>
>>1049227
I also miss it.
I used to grind exp/coins/tokens in multiplayer and get the bonus waiting points (quad grind?), especially on 200cc days. Now it's not really worth it.
>>
>>1046452
Hope for another Super Leaf driver.
Tanooki Rosa has been very useful to me as a top shelf driver on the Cookie Land battle course. Helped me get to S level.
Maybe Kitsune Luigi will get a good battle course.
>>
>wonky schedule made me forget to do the bonus token tracks
Fuck
>>
Well there’s White Tanooki on the last quick ticket, still unsure about buying him though
>>
>>1049513
Just get him. I did the same for Wicked Topaz.

Yeah, the white version is the one that ended up being great, all the others are garbage
>>
>>1049730
It's still trash though, awful hitbox.
>>
at what level gap is it better to choose something super/normal over something high-end
>>
>>1049801
1 level higher for drivers. The bonus points boost is the same for every level across the board for drivers, the only thing that changes is frenzy chance and the unlock level for upgraded skills.
You will probably still want to pick the coinboxer if it comes down to a level 4 HE CB vs a level 6 non-top4-skill super.
For karts it's a little more complicated, a Level 6 HE gets the same BP boost but a BP multiplier equal to a level 8 super. Normals don't even reach the same multiplier.,
For gliders, the BP boost is the same across the board again, but the combo time bonus for a level 4 HE is equal to a level 6 super and a leve 8 normal.
Keep the base points in mind though, high ends have a much higher points cap.

Congrats!

It was frustrating 'cause for the longest time this was my only top shelf track for one of the Bowser's Castle variants. I kept it at Level 1 and now that I don't need it, I'm glad I did.

Not really, it's almost as limited as a super kart. The green speeder which was a ranked reward a couple of weeks ago is already better but at least it has a nice hitbox

You won't have real competition until you reach tier 40

I hope luigi knight, gold petey and white tanooki get tracks, I want to double uncap them and take them to at least level 5

I’m probably not going to buy White Tanooki right now, I’ll see what’s in the next tour shop then, I assume Meowser is an instant buy?

Yes but if you're low on rubies better wait to see your coverage, he could have a new track overlapping with other good and more recent drivers

lel, king mario keeps getting the short end of the stick. Got three new tracks, none of them ranked ones and two of them overlap with gold chuck so only baby park R is his exclusive as a coinbox driver but regular petey also has it so not that good.
>>
So is Meowser still worth buying when he appears in the shop? Seems like DK Mountain is his only new track this tour and Gold Chuck already covers it for me

Meowser is still worth buying, but you can wait for an urgent need before spending rubies on him. Maybe you'll pull him in a pipe.
Meowser is a great coinboxer, but he has tons of overlap will other top skill drivers. I got him late this summer and have rarely used him, except in tours with tons of Bowser's Castle alts. (i.e. Bowser Tour)
>>
>>1050282
What about Santa Bowser instead? He should be back soon for christmas and I heard he’s also pretty good? Meowser is top tier but he’d only give me 2 new tracks without leveling him so I don’t know
>>
>>1050303
Santa has a low amount of tracks but they are very fun and high quality.
HOWEVER. He does suffer from having many old tracks that rarely return, such as Shy Guy Bazaar.
>>
Oh thank god I'm actually well sorted for both ranked cups and just in general
>>
>Very first fucking track I'm dealing with sweeping across the fucking track to shove a banana in my face AI

White Tanooki Mario is a good choice for Week 2 ranked on DK Mountain R/T. Good luck!
I'll probably use DK Jr...

Yeah, DK Jr. is great for laying down bananas on the narrow Choco Mountain tracks. I also remember using him a lot on Cheep Cheep Island earlier this year.
>>
>>1050233
Animal Tour Week 1 plan:
Going for top 3. Should be able to hold rank with some kart/glider tickets on Riverside Park R.
>>
>>1050814
I'm in an odd situation for week 2. Don't have a decent kart for riverside until i unlock the two from the tour and only have lv2 fire rosa for a driver on DK, but everything else looks decently sorted.
Makes me super worried about ranking decently especially since I'm only in second by 6k right now and haven't even done riverside R for this week.
And i should do moderately well with Sailor Daisy lv5, White Bruiser lv5, and Cream Toes lv3. Thinking a 20k+ should be managable there.
i really do need to actually figure out some karts and gliders to focus on though. i know i'm having self inflicted struggles with my driver focus, i should try not to do that with the rest.
>>
>>1050824 (me)
... or I could just do what Nintendo wants and spend money on the new kart and glider instead.
Don't know whether to be happy or cynical about it. Gotta pay to win.
>>
>>1050834
Might also consider Yellow Offroader for Riverside T in week 2. See if your week 2 opponents have it at a high level; if not, maybe invest in a newer kart.
Yellow Offroader = #1 kart of 2022
It's nice to see the Rambi kart comeback; it was kind of big in 2021 before the offroaders (yellow / red) took over.
>>
>>1050323
Depends. King could always be considered a special or city driver and only appear on certain tours.
>>
>>1050860
Funnily enough, i do have it. I'll keep it in mind once i get the tour tickets especially since I'm likely to get the two cheaper premiums this tour anyways.

>>1051151
Why is the ? block mii suit considered so powerful compared to other coinbox drivers?
>>
>>1051172
Mii drivers get extra base points that normal drivers don't have access to.
For every mii suit that you own, all mii suits get +10 base points. They are almost at 2000 already, but Nintendo said there "might" be a cap someday.

Because it's still getting tracks and the more suits you have, the higher the base points cap. Mine is only triple uncapped and it's already as good as a max uncapped driver currently. It's considered better than the gold suit because the latter started getting tracks 10 weeks before being available so its usefulness is reduced a little

Token grinding tip:

Agreed; the bots are unusually rough for early in the tour.
And multiplayer is also rough because everyone is clearing their reward pipes and going for Kart Pro.

Success! Tips for Kart Pro:
1. Use small karts. Brooms are good.
2. Don't drop items when in 1st place.
3. If you randomly luck into easy matchups with small groups (2-4 people), go for the win.

If he gives you coverage, go for it.
Meowser = #1 coinboxer of 2022
There is a small danger of Meowser getting surpassed by later coinboxers (esp. Gold Chuck), but he already has so many tracks that it doesn't make a difference.

I'm really new, according the spreadsheet the driver that gets me the most non-city courses is freaking Penguin Toadette tied with White Tanooki Mario at 8
For Karts it's Yellow OffRoader at 14
and Gliders it's Black Toe-Beans, Pink Gold Meteors, Wonderful Wings and Wicked Topaz at 13

should I buy anything?
>>
>>1053116
White tanooki is pretty decent, yellow offroader is a great kart and wonderful wings is the best glider in the game right now
>>
I have 55 tracks not covered by a driver, 87 tracks not covered by a kart and 115 tracks not covered by a glider yet, at which point should I focus on getting new karts and gliders instead of drivers?
>>
What’s better for token grinding, DK on Rock Rock Mountain or White Tanooki Mario on Yoshi Valley R?
>>
>>1053270
I just run all of the courses with top shelf banana drivers (triple or mega) as part of the daily grind.
If I get a good result, I grind on it a little while until the luck stops, then move onto the next course.
The rank of the driver will make a difference, as will the kart/glider. If you can, use a banana glider or a lightning or blooper glider as they also give a lot of hits + tokens if you get a frenzy.
>>
>>1053116
>>1053116
>Penguin Toadette tied with White Tanooki
I wouldn't spend rubies on drivers with crappy Skills like Toadette's (because you're not going to invest in her later when you have better options for those tracks), but White Tanooki is a great choice.
>Yellow OffRoader
Fantastic kart, and the red one too.
>Black Toe-Beans, Pink Gold Meteors, Wonderful Wings and Wicked Topaz
All fantastic gliders, too. I do think they have some overlap between each other, too. Start with Wonderful Wings.

Penguin Toadette appears in everyone's spreadsheet list because there was a Toad vs. Toadette tour in Nov. 2021 with some special tracks which haven't been seen since.
I wouldn't get her because none of the new 2022 drivers has seen those tracks, and some of them will get buffs on them if they come back.

Merry and Sundae definitely.
Vancouver and Amsterdam are also discountable, cities rarely come back.
Vanilla Lake is a family they love to shove in tour after tour, they will be back again soon.
>>
>>1053270
Dk should give you more tokens but the problem with farming a long track like rock rock/dk mountain is that it becomes a chore to keep grinding and it takes too long to complete a race. I would go for white tanooki even if he's not that high level just so I don't get sick of it.

You can get her from token pipes? Did they update those that much or something because last i saw it should have been just Swimsuit in pipes.
But she's ok, i like how hammers just ignore the AIs fucking bananas to nail them. I also admit to being biased though.

Two Mega Banana frenzys; both in the narrow part with the dinosaur right before the curved tunnel.

Result: 2nd place. Was 1st place until the last day; woke up 5000 points behind and couldn't catch up. Didn't want to throw too many tickets on it for 20 rubies.
Week 2 plan: Hope the matchup is favorable. Plan to be using Tuxedo Mario / Gold Petey / DK Jr., and have tickets to take them up to Lv 6 if needed. Already have over 73k and Lv 5/6 karts and gliders.

Top 3 looks doable. Will try double capping drivers before taking any to Lv 6. Probably Tux Mario and DK Jr. since Riverside Park T is a low scoring short track (sorry, Gold Petey).
Surprised that many of my opponents are scoring relatively high with Cat Peach on River Park T. Guess the bell works well on the narrow course.
Seriously considering raising Yellow Offroader to Lv 7. I have no HE items above Lv 6 so far.

It feels like they planned to do something else for the next tour, but didn't get the devs finished in time and had to fall back to a rerun tour as a backup plan.
>>
>>1055713
They could have reran something like Peach vs Daisy though.
Wouldn't have been much more effort, just allocating a handful more drivers.
Then again, all tours lately have felt low effort. Little to no new stuff, token shops that are frankly pathetic, and battle mode is actually awful.

Thanks to Gold Petey for a double coinbox frenzy run. Now in 1st place.
I often have good luck on day 1, but then get passed later in the week and can't shake the bots.

I could use my tickets but I think I'll just take the rank down.

Tier 28 now, how long more until these scores become inadequate?

I had no problem finishing 1st or 2nd every week until around Tier 50.
Just get the D/K/G to give you coverage, then get them to level 3 (unlock coverage), then drivers to level 4 (unlock skill).

I have Pink Gold Peach and Gold Yoshi as coinboxers for team Peach and Meowser, Gold Boo, Gold Chuck and Gold Petey for team Bowser, I should probably choose team Bowser for the sake of token grinding right

Token Shop will probably be PGP and Dry Bowser, or something equally useless.
>>
>>1056483
Grinding tokens during rallies is not a problem, the recovery and bonus days will give you plenty of tokens even if you don't have many coinbox drivers. Your focus should be either
>picking the one you like more just to help your team
Or
>picking the opposite team of the one with the most coinbox presence because that way tokens won't get in the way of grinding ranked/ACR
>>
>>1056495
I’m going to be on holiday during the entire duration of the tour so I won’t have a lot of time to grind tokens so I’d rather pick the team that will make it faster for me to get all the non-pipe stuff from the shop at least
And my personal preference would be team Bowser
>>
>>1056511
get an autoclicker dude, you'll thank me later.
>>
So my guesses for the next few tours would be
>Snow/Winter Tour: Merry Mountain returns, GBA Snow Land
>New Year 2023 Tour: DS Shroom Ridge? Paris 4?
>Madrid/Athens Tour: Madrid or Athens as the first tours of 2021 and 2022 were new cities so 2023’s first tour should be a new city too
>Chinese New Year Tour: Singapore 3
Seems logical?
>>
>>1056528
Don’t autoclickers not work on ios?
>>
https://mkt-upcoming.web.app/
There’s this site I found showing the current ID gaps and what courses would fit in the gaps right now
>>
Next tour will be at least 8 new tracks for coverage again, right? 4 versions of Peach Gardens, 4 versions of Amsterdam Drift 3 and any new R/Ts that might be added?
>>
>>1056598
Paris Promenade B is likely.
Also (maybe) GBA Bowser's Castle 4.
Let us rejoice at the fact that the shitking will get his topshelf expanded with even more cities.
>>
>>1056601
I’m assuming Paris B will be added at the same time as Paris 4 in the future, and we know from ID gaps that Paris 4 is coming soon

Drivers at 1 year: Main drivers are Pinja, Kamek, and all of the Rosalinas.

Hoping to get more high rank coinboxers and banana drivers, since they drive my account. Never cared much for boomerang and Lucky 7.

I'm looking to get gliders paired to drivers a bit better in Year 2; looking at Para Panini and Piranha Plant Balloons to match with courses featuring my banana drivers.

She has been kind of weak for my account, but I didn't get her until the anniversary. Not getting good buffs. I got her to collect all the Rosalinas.
Kangaroo Yoshi and Vacation Luigi are more useful boomerang drivers.

Yes, seems like nintendo's new strategy is dumping at least 6 if not 8 new tracks every tour while slowing down on releasing new drivers as a way to make new players be able to catch up and at the same time ''force'' veteran players to use more tickets for ranked/ACR by giving ranked rewards constantly because rubies are not that valuable anymore. Also part of me believes that we are getting more and more karts because they want people to buy those awful point boost tickets packs.
>>
What are the chances that DK Mountain T and/or Riverside Park R/T end up in next tour’s ranked cups? I don’t have a driver for either…
>>
>>1058510
Close to null, they tend to put away new tracks for months on end nowadays, especially since we're getting at least 2 new families next tour (Peach Gardens, Amsterdam 3)
>>
As a new player will I be able to complete this challenge before it expires? The highest score I’ve ever gotten was 18,657 on Maple Treeway R/T
>>
>>1058546
Don't worry about the expert card, you get nothing special for completing these.
>>
>>1058546
Raise your player level, that will help you score higher without spending tickets and since we keep getting a bunch of new tracks every tour, the improvement should be more dramatic for a new player

>>1058598
I’m only player level 27 now, how much more score can I get from raising my level?

The higher your player level, the more it increases your score at the end of the race. You should be aiming for at least level 150 so that you get 6000 points just for finishing first place
>>
>>1058546
You've got a whole month left, you might be able to get it. Next tour try to spot a high scoring track and focus on your DKG for it. Like, a 3-3-3 high end setup can get you 22k easy on certain tracks.
>>
13th place, 30k away from 1st.
>>
>>1055734
Final result: Stayed in 1st place all week until late on the last day. Got more improvement from DK Jr. on DK Mtn. in the late hours, but finished in 2nd. Opponent had some triple caps which were hard to beat with my double cap items. Saved a bunch of tickets for the next tour; first time I'm keeping at least 5 each of D/K/G. Didn't want to spent lots of level tickets just for 5 rubies and a few hundred coins. Got Koopa King kart (to Lv5) in the gold pipe.
