Ninja hideaway is coming back again edition
No new alt again *and* another reused tour name when it doesn’t even make sense? Zzz
>gacha's gone, so they dont feel the need to make as many new characters & cool costumes anymore, just lame colorsLosing it Literally ruined the game.just.... fuck europe and their anti gamblan laws!
Yellow Shy GuyGold Hop RodGold Boo MasksThose seems to be all the new items in the trailer
>>1148071There's a new pink kart too that Yukata Peach is driving, probably the commemorative pack. Still, what a fucking letdown. I know this game probably doesn't have THAT long left in it, but even then this is just sad. Guess Dry Dry Ruins at least looks mostly the same in terms of gameplay, although removals of the ruin murals and the Yoshi Sphinx are pretty damn lame.
>>1148075Another worrying sign is that every tour after Animal has had a reused name, Winter didn’t make sense as a name for the Tokyo/Singapore/Bangkok tour, PPC tour could’ve had a different name, and teasing DDR only to reuse the Ninja Tour name makes no sense
from the trailer we can see that>shy guy ninja blue, mario happi, jade hop rod and that new kart will be at the shop, happi is too trash to be a discount one so maybe part of the rotation>peach yukata riding a new unicorn sports coupe, she's at the shop most likely as a spotlight and that kart seems a paywalled item>new shy guy alt riding a golden hop rod, most likely the ranked rewards>pink ninja, peach happi, king bob-omb, sakura hop rod, armored ride, dark hop rod, boo masks, secret scroll and fireworks parachute all on rotation>golden boo masks as gold pass giftas for the tracks we can see>ninja hideaway>dry dry ruins>wii's rainbow road>shy guy bazaar
Ninja Shu Guy got a Wii Rainbow Road T buff back in Space and now Wii RR is back with Ninja Guy as a spotlight, seems very likely that Wii RR T will be in ranked the same week as Ninja Guy in the shop
>>1148078Yeah, that's just the cherry pit on top of the shit sundae. I at least thought this game would last until mid-2024, but this is feeling like bottom of the barrel already. What the hell would they even have to keep up for that long? Not to mention other problems like the spotlight shop being a money sink or Miis taking over the meta with their point boosts. The game has just felt stale this year. I had some decent hopes at the start after Space-Exploration even with their problems, but now I'm not sure what they even want out of this game. This is the closest I've felt to taking a hiatus since mid-2020.>>1148080Happi is in the shop. They always feature the two featured drivers in the shop big on the banner and together in the first shot of each tour trailer. They're probably bringing out the kart and a glider to counteract his horrendous value, dumb as that sounds.
>>1148084Even more, tour after next is almost guaranteed to be Yoshi Tour, another reused name (not as bad since Yoshi Tour is an annual thing), and it’s quite likely that the tour after *that* reuses the Metropolitan name since it’s going to be another Paris/London/Berlin/Amsterdam tourIf Athens Tour somehow manages to reuse a name instead of being called that, that’ll be hilarious
>>1148080Happi Mario and Ninja Guy are week 1 and 2 spotlights and Yukata Peach will either be a spotlight the whole tour or boosted in shop
>>1148081I think given their recent trend of having more new courses on ranked, we should expect at least 3 versions of dry dry ruins there, unless they include some random R/T missing, plus 2 from ninja hideaway since it's the ninja tour and a random one from all the other returning ones, my call is shy guy bazaar since we haven't seen that track on ranked in years
and the new suit that looks like another piranha plant one, maybe PPC is coming back already
>>1148098>2x Dry Dry Ruins (N and R/T)>2x Ninja Hideaway>1x Wii Rainbow Road (R or T)>1 random remaining courseMy guess for what’ll be in ranked, but I feel like either Wii RR R or T are guaranteed because Pinja has R and regular Ninja Guy has T
>>1148103Yoshi’s Island has a piranha plant on it so that would fit, but it might be odd for the Yoshi Tour’s mii suit to be a piranha plant
“Good” ending:Next update increases number of cups per tour to. 18, Athens debuts in the tour after Metropolitan (like how Bangkok and PPC debuted after all-city tours) and the tour is called Athens Tour“Bad” ending: No change to number of cups in a tour, Athens 1+2 debut in Metropolitan and the other tracks in the tour are the 1+2 versions of Paris, London, Berlin and Amsterdam, so we manage to get another reused tour name for Athens
This is the one new thing next tour that isn’t Dry Dry Ruins, I wonder how good it’ll become
>>1148234it looks the same size as the warrior wagon which is pretty big so for simple hitbox it should be decent, hopefully it covers dry dry ruins and not ninja courses because they are old, have a lot of coverage and only comeback like 2 times a year
>>1148308Also the kart is called the Taiko Drum Dasher, which is a pretty cool name
part of me thinks that the reason why they're recycling previous tours with barely new content is because nintendo is focusing almost exclusively on newer players and their catch up mechanics from now on. veterans now have only the ranked rewards to look forward and rubies keep piling up because unless you're a collector, which I think are probably just a couple of people at this point, you can only buy a couple of things once in a while and stay competitive. those who follow the meta may thing that the game is dying but if you think it from the perspective of a new player, you would be thankful for having those tracks and characters comeback since you weren't playing around early 2021. what really surprises me is how we didn't get a 3.5 anniversary celebration announcement, it's just a generic spring one, maybe they're done with those as well
I heard they removed the gacha from the game, is the game worth playing?do i need to grind 24/7 or can one just play casually?
I'm a casual, is there anything worth buying from the ruby shop? I have 520.
I just realised that GBA Luigi Circuit has been finished for ages but after MvL3 didn’t happen there’s no place for it at all in the predicted upcoming schedule, wonder when it’ll show up now
>>1148412without using a tracker there's no way to tell you what's good for your account but you should save some rubies in case you're lucky to get gold chuck there
>>1148653Where can I get a tracker?

>>1143447 (me, last thread)Mario Tour Wk2 status: 11thI'm sitting out Week 2. Top 10 opponents have better loadouts; lots of Lv7/Lv8 Metal Mario and DK Jr. on Mario Circuit R/T. The problem with recycling these old courses is that older players have their loadouts maxed, making it hard for newer players to compete in Tier ranked.I could get a 10k improvement by throwing level tickets onto the 1st 2 races, but it would just get me the same or fewer high end kart cap tickets. And there's a high chance I'd be grinding Tuesday night on the 3rd/4th line, just to get sniped like last week (>>1146080). Also, the Gold 8bit Pipe Frame is not a reward worth chasing.Next tour looks better, so I'll hold my tickets. Ninja Hideaway is the most fun course in the game. Look forward to using Pinja to fill Ninja Hideaway R/T and Shy Guy Bazaar R/T with giant bananas!
>>1148986>recycling these old coursesDS Mario Circuit is a new course, what do you mean?
>>1149024oops my badNewer players may have an edge on DS Mario Circuit R/T if they're investing in the newer coinboxers: King Mario and Winter Larry. Tuxedo Mario is there too, but only one of my opponents is running with him.
I’m worried that Wii DDR might pull a Snow Land and have Ninja Guy (regular) as the only good skill driver and the rest of the drivers are random stuff people aren’t likely to have
According to a youtuber with official info, Shy Guy Ninja is week 1 spotlight, Mario Happi is week 2 and Peach Yukata is the whole tour And N64 KTB and 3DS Daisy Hills seem to be returning so Thaisy will finally get to see the N, R and T of Daisy Hills
>>1149209Unless King is a new precedent and not an exception for Mar10 Day, that means no gliders discounted. Ninja Guy is well past his prime now, and while in ranked a lot I wouldn't say Yukata matches some other non-elite drivers we've gotten in recent memory. Happi is a contender for the shittiest driver in the game, and the Jade Hop Rod is hardly anything special.Taiko Drum Dasher is still a mystery. How do you all think it will turn out? Trying to think of great karts we've gotten in recent memory aside from the Streetle and the Blooper Shuttle.
>>1149796Well, the current tour has a driver, kart and glider spotlighted each week as well as having King Mario, so it’s still possible that some of the ninja gliders like Secret Scroll or an Origami Glider are discounted too
Gold King Boo, Fire Rosalina and Cat Rosalina are my only drivers that cover Ninja Hideaway variants, hope I’m not too screwed next tour…
I ended up getting all four of the new 8 bit gliders this tour because I’ve heard that the past 8 bit gliders all turned out very strong, I hope these gliders can help build a stronger foundation for meI also got the King Boo mii since it was discounted and has a good skill
these threads always feel like just 2 guys talking to eachother, lol
>>1150110I think there's at most 5 recurring anons here. This thread only has 11 different posters, so the difference is probably the new or returning players asking for advice.
>>1150110i checked out ages ago. i just lurk nowadays to see if any decent new characters or alts get released.
>>1149884The good news is that any new driver introduced since the March 2022 Samurai Tour hasn't seen these courses yet. That means buffs for a ton of Mii suits, as well as any other regular character which debuted afterward.Including: Yoshi Gold Egg, Rosa Volendam, Thai Daisy, Petey Piranha (regular and gold), White Tanooki Mario, Gold Chuck, Knight Luigi, King Mario, Kitsune Luigi, Winter Larry, Astro Toad, and both Shy Guy Explorers.
Existing featured items on Ninja Hideaway variants.source: https://www.mariowiki.com/Ninja_Hideaway
>>1150265But isn’t Ninja Hideaway going to be a low-value buff for anything that gets it because it only appears once per year?
>>1150368The point is that you most likely WILL have coverage, but you're right.
hey whales you want even MORE rubies?
gotta keep the whales fed I suppose.
I bet the only thing extreme about these challenges will be how unbelievably grindy they will be. Like hit 10,000 opponents with green shells or some bullshit like that.
>>1151046I've seem some speculating that the Donkey Kong badges could possibly come with the mysterious mobdk track, which may check out if it's based on the original Donkey Kong arcade game. It is odd that we didn't get these with New York Minute.
>>1151065The only snag is that the gap for mobdk is still at 10 currently, so mobdk doesn’t seem planned to release anytime soon unless the next tour and/or update increases it by a lot
With the recent drought in new alts, do you think there are very many more alts planned for the game or not? There doesn’t seem to be many slots left for non-recolor and non-Mii drivers; and the mysterious slots 48 and 53 are still empty
>>1151219After doing some digging, it looks 48, 53, 81, 183, 187, 205, 206, 207 and 210 seem to be the only slots remaining for new drivers that aren’t Miis; 223, 224, 242, 255, 256, 277 and 279 seem to also be for new non-Mii drivers, and apparently the IDs aren’t planned to go further than 279
>>1151219I feel like the game is going to have another major update soon hence the lack of new HE drivers and this will bring a new rotation of battle tracks, tier 100+ and maybe player level 400+ as well. the thing that worries me is that nintendo may take a different approach this time and add a new mechanic to shake things up. level 9 would require at least 12 to 15 tickets which I think it's too much, but what if they introduce a new element like wheels with their own set of level and base points tickets or maybe something even more extreme like messing with the coverage of already existing items to change the value of random shit
>>1151381People are also suggesting that part of the next version update will increase the number of cups per tour to 18, since future tours, starting from the tour after the presumed Yoshi Tour, seem to be prepped to have 12 tracks per tour rather than 10, will that be a good thing?
>>1151219>sixteen slots>several are clearly going to the final three citiesThat's absolutely grim.
>>1151492Also, 95, 96, 100, 101 and 152 are apparently junk slots with no data in them so those are unused, not sure if any of the later IDs are also unused
>>1151494Makes sense they cut other Pit Crew Toads since there's only one color left from 8, but what's up with 152?
>>1151219>>1151265>>1151494Made a guide to show off remaining slots for drivers that aren't just Miis or the recolors from 8.
>>1151516After next tour, we'll be waiting on the following:>16 new drivers, several possibly recolors>21 Mii Racing Suits>six ranked Super rewardsThat firmly lines up with around a year of content left, which fits with the leaked tracks too.
>>1151497I’m not sure, but 152 being unused is what the dataminers have said, and after I’ve spent quite some time reading everything they‘ve done I’d say they’re reliable Also I don’t think I should say that 279+ won’t happen because that was just second-hand info I couldn’t find the original source for; they could always expand the slots past that
Who's ACTUALLY getting this gold kart from ranked tonight? Shit was impossible.
>>1151698I've been ignoring rank past couple of tours due to burn out.
did you get it?>>1151698>>1151739honestly you won't be missing much since it's pretty tiny and has awful coverage
its their time to get:BUFFED!
>>1151772Black and red got T!
wow, the dry dry ruins top shelf is awful, if it wasn't for the yellow suit I would probably have to finally get either cat or chef luigi
>>1151788I don’t have a DDR driver lmao, wondering if I should get the mii or Peach Yukata; or just tank week 1 and do week 2 instead since I have everything in week 2 covered except for the DDR T kart, which the new discounted spotlight kart has
>>1151815Buy the Mii, giant banana is superb.
>>1151816Pokey Mii is triple banana, not giant banana
>>1151817I would say any of the 2 suits are a good option but giant banana is better even if is at full price at the shop
>>1151821I’m not very keen on getting a full price mii from the shop though; and I already feel like getting Pinja this tour The Pokey mii is discounted and newer so I think it’d have good future value over yellow mii too
So is it a very bad sign that they aren’t even acknowledging the 3.5 year anniversary and having a “springtime celebration” instead?
Had a fun multiplayer challenge run, and I got 3 frenzies including a coin frenzy on Ninja RT at the end, shame it happened there instead of on the ranked cup
>>1152065I still find it retarded that they dont discount the high chance groups.
Thoughts on the next two “springtime celebration” tours (where is the acknowledgment of 3.5 anni)Yoshi Tour: Yoshi’s Island and Yoshi Desert alongside Yoshi Valley R/T, one each of the two missing Birdo/Yoshi colors for ranked rewards, who knows if we get a new alt but I’d hope so since Yoshi’s Island should get oneMetropolitan Tour (If number of cups increases): Paris 1-3, London 1-3, Berlin 1-3 and Amsterdam 1-3 rerun; with Paris B and Berlin 1R/T (3R/T saved for later), no non-recolor altMetropolitan Tour (No increase in cup amount): Paris 1-2, London 1-2, Amsterdam 1-2, Berlin 1-2; with the debut of Athens 1 and 2 at the same time alongside Paris B and Berlin 1R/T, with a new alt for Athens
>>1151516Ok, found a source confirming which ID slots are for Miis, which lines up with what I said before (some of the IDs here have been added as Miis already)I did find one more piece of info after searching the server: 223 and 224 started with unused Mii Cup boosts, but those were removed and 223 and 224 were never added; so those two IDs might also be scrapped, or just unfinished
>>1152343And then I just found more: apparently 48, 81, 210 and 255 (at least) are confirmed High Ends, 53 still has a placeholder rarity of Normal, and according to this pic posted around the NY Tour, 183, 223, 224 and 242 are all scrapped leaving us with even less slots for new drivers than I thought
It's 2023 and my best driver for Daisy Hills is still regular Daisy.
Nice, easy token grinding!
>>1151516>>1152343>>1152359Ouch, that would leave just 12 more non-Miis left then unless they expand the IDs again.
I’ve been wanting to get Pinja for a long time and I was waiting to see if he’d be discounted for when Ninja Hideaway returns, unfortunately he’s not; so I’m wondering if he’s still worth it for 150 rubies
man... YELLOW SUIT cucked that POKEY SUIT
Isn't it funny how Happi Mario has such fat little feet? Haha, so cute!
>>1153287What isn't funny is how fuckin useless he is. Happi Peach should've been the Spotlight instead.
Dry Dry Ruins R/T is another RMX Rainbow Road 1R/T situation where the devs forgot to put a 3rd item set somewhere at the end.
>>1153654They probably wanted another Mario Santa on Snow Land situation where the discounted spotlight is a trash old driver who got a single buff on the most difficult ranked track to cover; except Happi’s track (DDR T) is covered by Gold Chuck and Light Blue Explorer so he isn’t needed unlike the terrible Snow Land topshelf
Cleared token shop already, White Tanooki Mario on Vanilla Lake 1T got them all
>>1153940When you do this do you always restart the race until you get a giant banana frenzy?
>>1153951not him but I also cleared the shop and I just used an autoclicker on daisy hills r/t with yellow toad because I don't have other giant banana drivers at high level. you don't have to restart just set it to repeat the race over and over with the same setup
>>1153996How do you autoclick with giant banana drivers? dont you still need to tap manually when they get the frenzy?
I’m kinda worried about the 3rd tour of the spring celebration because there are two options for it and both don’t seem appealingThe first possibility is that the tour contains only Paris/London/Berlin/Amsterdam tracks with the only “new” tracks being Paris B and the R/Ts for Berlin 1 and 3; which would be bad since there is no new course and every tour lately has had at least one new course, even the filler ones, and the tour would be guaranteed to reuse the Metropolitan nameThe second possibility is that the tour debuts AT (Athens) alongside the other European cities and Paris B, but then there would still be a high chance the tour reuses the Metropolitan name rather than getting the Athens Tour name, and if even the debut of a new city can’t give us a new tour name that’s not good
>>1154013by using the auto mode, the cpu doesn't take advantage of the full frenzy but you can still get several hits, boomerang drivers are also decent using this method if it's a narrow track, but the real advantage of the autoclicker is not getting burned out because you can leave it working while you're sleeping or doing something else and in like 8 hours you could get 3k to 4k tokens without doing anything.
Studfit/Antilev Rundown live:https://youtu.be/yvA-oithmk4
https://youtu.be/aTnV52FYrgkhttps://youtu.be/f6BOAU4D35ohttps://twitter.com/mariokarttourEN/status/1631534873759424512I’d like to point out that the reveal trailers for the Mario Tour and the Spike Mii were made private on youtube and deleted from twitter for some reason; and checking in-game, the news post with the Mario Tour and Spike Mii trailers were deleted from the in-game news list as well, why did this happen?
>>1154894Even just one high end ticket can get you much better scores, not to mention you can still grind for points. Just one ticket on king mario and getting everything to their point cap can get you an extra 1k on your overall score.
>>1151747I got it but I've only started playing the last couple of weeks so I'm still in low tier
>>1154956I've done a bit of grinding now, just scraping second, and still 2,500 from first.
>>1155088I kind of hope something new gets added after maint even if it’s unlikely since nothing significant was added or changed after the version update
>>1148986Mario Tour Wk2 result: 7th. Down to Tier 71.Ninja Tour Wk1: 1st so far. Suffering for the last 2 months is finally paying off. Ninja Tour Wk2: Should be competitive with my existing loadout.
>>1155095They're probably laying the foundations for the next expansion of Levels/Tiers.
It’s gonna be weird when Yoshi’s Island is the big new course for next tour except we’ve already been playing it for a month; just hope the T and R/T are fun
It seems like the currently theorized tour schedule is Yoshi Tour with Yoshi’s Island and Desert > Metropolitan Tour with Athens 1 and 2 > Bowser Tour with GBA BC4 and one of the SNES BCs > Tour with Daisy Circuit
>>1155176It's going to be even more weird when we don't get again a new driver but gold egg's and kangaroo's return along with another recolored yoshi as the ranked reward for week 1 and an old one for week 2
>>1155680I'd take a proper Birdo variant at this point.
>>1155738They highlighted the Birdo recolors in MK8 when Yoshi’s Island was revealed so it seems like either Red or Green Birdo would come with the Yoshi Tour; maybe Yellow or Light-Blue Yoshi and Turbo Yoshi week 1 ranked, and Red or Green Birdo and Turbo Birdo week 2
The following tracks are fairly likely for next tour based on ID gaps:>Yoshi's Island (a given)>Yoshi Circuit>Yoshi Valley>Yoshi Desert>Cookie Land>SNES Choco Island 1>Vanilla Lake 2>Boo Lake>Riverside Park>Piranha Plant Slide>Twilight HouseWould be both hilarious and painful if the last ranked track outside the new Yoshi additions is Baby Park R.
>>11557443DS BC, Neo Bowser City, Piranha Plant Slide, RRM, Boo Lake, GBA BCs 1-3, Riverside Park, Airship Fortress, Baby Park, Yoshi Circuit, KD2, Yoshi Valley, Choco Island 1, Vanilla Lake 1, Amsterdam 1-2, Berlin 1-2, London 1-2, Paris 1 and RMX BC are the remaining ID changes from Holiday Tour that link to upcoming toursAmsterdam, Berlin, London and Paris link to the tour that should introduce AthensAll the Bowser tracks link to the tour with GBA BC4 and the SNES BC, Koopa Cape and KD2 may be linked to this tour too due to being changed at the same time as the Bowser tracksRRM and Airship weren’t changed after Holiday so they may not be planned for an upcoming tour DK Summit was changed but it’s R/T was added that tour so I’m not sure if the change was just to accommodate the R/TThere were also changes for Bangkok 1, Singapore 1-2 and Tokyo 2 and 4, but those may have been for the Winter Tour instead of an upcoming tourThis does leave Piranha Plant Slide, Boo Lake, Riverside Park, Baby Park, Yoshi Circuit, Yoshi Valley, Choco Island 1 and Vanilla Lake 1 for the Yoshi Tour as you said; but PPS and Yoshi Circuit weren’t changed in the Winter Tour while all the others + the Yoshi Desert gap were, which means PPS might not appear, especially since every track from the Mario and Ninja Tours did get changed at the same time during the Space and Winter Tours respectively
>>1155755>Amsterdam, Berlin, London and Paris link to the tour that should introduce AthensI know that it's clearly happening, but still think it's lame how they're already recycling the Metropolis Tour.
>>1155769Ok hold on, I may have realised something important, the current theory is that Athens 1-2 will debut in a metropolitan with the other Europe cities, and the first time the Athens gap was increased past 15 (5+5+5) was alongside increases to the other Europe cities?you know how there’s a gap between Paris and Singapore that’s likely to be an unknown city because of the +15 increase to it? After the +15 increase, the next time the gap went up was the Space Tour, where it got +8. Importantly, New York 1-2, Singapore 1-2, Sydney 1-2, and Vancouver 1-2 all got changed during the Space Tour as well, and we know that the changes from after Holiday will be for tours after the GBA BC4 and SNES BC tour, so maybe the 1-2 of this city are planned to debut in an all-city tour with the 1-2s of NY, Singapore, Sydney and Vancouver?
>>1155790And the gap between LA and New York actually seems to have something like this too, it was also a 15 gap and we know about “mobmd”This gap went up by +13 in Winter Tour, and +13 is a bigger increase than the first increases to the Athens gap (+9) and Paris/Singapore gap (+8) Winter Tour has increases to Amsterdam 3, Athens gap, Bangkok 1 (and maybe 2, 2 started with a higher ID size than 3) Berlin 1-3, London 3, LA 2-3, Paris 1-3, Paris/Singapore gap, maybe Singapore 3 (gap size 15 in Space but added at size of 16, +1), Sydney 3, Tokyo 1-3 and Vancouver 3. I’m theorizing that the gap increases here are for Athens 3 and one of 1/2, P/S gap 3, and MD 1-3; the +13 suggests that all 3 MDs got increased, +10 to Athens gap suggests Athens 3 getting its increase alongside either 1/2, and +4 to P/S gap suggests only 3 getting increasedIf Athens and P/S gap have 1 and 2 debut together, then MD should also debut 1 and 2 together, so I think the increases in Winter Tour are for both an MD 1/2 tour; and a tour where Athens 3, P/S gap 3 and MD 3 all debut MD Tour:>Athens 1/2>Bangkok 1 and 2>LA 2>MD 1 and 2>Paris 1 and 2>Berlin 1 and 2>Tokyo 1 and 2“3” Tour:>Amsterdam 3>Athens 3>Berlin 3>London 3>LA 3>MD 3>Paris 3>P/S gap 3>Singapore 3>Sydney 3>Tokyo 3>Vancouver 3This isn’t perfect because I have to assume an 18-cup tour with 12 total tracks per tour to fit these in, but the increase to 18 cups was theorized before, and laying it out like this allow every city I think was changed in Winter Tour to fit; Bangkok 3, LA 1, New York 3-4 and Tokyo 4 are left out but they weren’t changed in Space/WinterAdditionally this also has to assume that Athens, MD and Paris/Singapore gap are the last three cities, with the only proof being the initial 15 ID sizes for each of them and MD’s fence objects; but if I’m right then the release order will be Athens > Paris/Singapore gap city > MD, with the first two being in wave 5 of MK8 and MD wave 6
Apologies for that giant wall of text but I got convinced the ID increases to the cities in Space and Winter Tours had to mean something, and the changes coinciding with the ID increases to the gaps that are likely the unknown cities didn’t feel like a coincidence
Ok, I actually have one more theory to post after looking at all the info we have again, but I’m not sure if I should…
Done with ACR.
Wii Rainbow Road T is miserable, the halfpipes are so weird, coinbox is bad because the coins just fall into space 90% of the time, you basically have to pray to RNGesus that your driver does a trick on the big halfpipe, and the track is so short and the jumps are vertigo-inducing, yuck
>>1156053yes, it's trash track, having only 3 item boxes plus your item ticket makes it impossible to get a triple frenzy, even getting 2 is already very complicated.
>>1155790>>1155832Rio would fit well with both the Paris gap and a hypothetical American-themed tour. Still think it would be strange for the final city to be something like Madrid, but we'll see. Possible as well that MD is a seasonal track while the last city is currently unknown. Not impossible if that one is debuting closer to the end of the year for Wave 6.I think a "3" Tour would make sense during 4th Anniversary.
did you get it?
>>1156606Going to try next week.
>>1156606I got it
>>1156447MD would make sense for a city given that we seemingly still need 3 cities, and it’s gap was first increased by 15 indicating 3 variants; but this could also be a Piranha Plant Cove where it’s a multi-route non.city insteadAnd I have no clue what “Tentmobmd” could be, why there are 2 versions of this “tent” and if MD is Madrid, why there would be tents in Madrid in the first place
>>1155161Result: 1st place>>1156606Yes. Also Orange Shy Guy. And B Dasher Mk. 2 (to Lv2) in the gold pipe.Also bought the Taiko Drum Dasher. Starting in 3rd place for Week 2.
So I was looking at the gap between Bangkok 1 and Berlin 1 that was for Bangkok 2 and 3 and BR (assuming it is BathRoom to fit there alphabetically) to figure out when BR was increased, and came up with this>Initial: Bangkok 2 (5) + Bangkok 3 (5) = 10>Animal: Bangkok 2 (5) + Bangkok 3 (5) + BR (5) = 15 (BR rendered and added to gap)>PvB (+12): Bangkok 2 (11) + Bangkok 3 (11) + BR (5) = 27 (Bangkok 2 and 3 increased for Winter Tour)>Holiday (+8): Bangkok 2 (15) + Bangkok 3 (15) + BR (5) = 35 (Bangkok 2 and 3 increased)>Winter (+8): Bangkok 2 (18) + Bangkok 3 (15) + BR (10) = 43 (Bangkok 2 and BR increased)If I’m right, BR would be part of the Winter Tour increases, the last-known set, and won’t come for quite a while, but now I’m wondering whether the Bangkok 2 and 3 increases during Holiday are meant for another tour that wasn’t Winter, because Bangkok 1, Singapore 1-3 and Tokyo 2 and 4 are also part of the Holiday increases; were they just for Winter or for another tour within the range of Holiday’s increases, since the earliest tour using the Holiday increases was Mario
>>1156780Additionally, these are the courses that were increased in Holiday but not increased further in connection to any other upcoming tour:>Rock Rock Mountain>Piranha Plant Slide>Airship Fortress>Yoshi Circuit>Bangkok 1>Bangkok 2 and 3 possibly>Piranha Plant Coves maybe>Singapore 1-3>Tokyo 2>Tokyo 4The Asian cities could just have been for the winter tour, Yoshi Circuit may be for Yoshi Tour but it’s weird that Yoshi Valley and the gap for Yoshi Desert got increased in Space alongside other courses that were increased in Holiday and look to be for Yoshi Tour, but Yoshi Circuit was not changed
Alright, another wall of text coming but this one is pretty important, there’s info I’ve put together based on unused Mii IDsTLDR, unused Mii cup boosts get removed over time to prepare the Mii in that ID for release, and the tours in which these boosts are removed relate to the ID increases within that tour. You can see this with Peach vs Bowser Tour which removed the boosts for IDs:>217 (Roaring Racer)>241 (Para-Biddybud)>268 (Brown)>274 (Purple)The ID increases in this tour are for all courses that appeared in the Space, Winter, Exploration and Doctor Tours, the same ones those Miis were released inAnd then it turns out that over the course of Holiday - Space Tours, all remaining unused Mii boosts were removed. The pattern holds with Holiday having ID increases for the courses in Mario and Ninja Tours, and Spike (236) and Pokey (245) being removed in HolidayNow, 8 other Mii IDs were also removed in Holiday; this seems to suggest that all 8 of these Miis will be added in tours based on the Holiday ID increases before moving on to tours using the New Year increases; except that as I said earlier, there seem to only be 3 more tours that are planned according to Holiday IDs, which are Yoshi, Metropolitan/Athens and Bowser, so 8 different Miis will release over only 3 tours? So assuming the Piranha Plant Mii next tour is 249, then maybe Metropolitan/Athens will have 5 Miis based on the 5 European cities, like:>259 (Paris Mii)>260 (London Mii)>261 (Berlin Mii)>262 (Amsterdam Mii)>263 (Athens Mii)Then leaving for Bowser Tour:>264 (Unknown Mii for Bowser Tour, could be ranked reward)>267 (Blue Mii, would be in the shop)Which would use up all remaining removed Mii IDs from Holiday in the tours seemingly prepared in HolidayThere’s also an oddity; you can see that 276 was listed as an unused Mii boost during Peach vs Bowser, but on the list of Holiday Mii boosts 276 is gone and it’s not listed as a removed Mii boost, so what happened to 276..?
>>1156897One last observation is that the removal of all unused Mii boosts over the 4 tours correlate to the large amounts of ID increases within these 4 tours, and there don’t seem to be any further unique increases past Winter; Exploration ID increases link to Metropolitan/Athens ID increases from Holiday, Doctor ID increases link to Bowser-related ID increases from Holiday, Mario ID increases were all increased during New Year as well, and Ninja ID increases also connect to the ID increases in New YearThe important thing is that again, ALL unused Mii boosts for EVERY ID known to be a Mii were removed over the course of the Holiday - Winter Tours. What this means is that the release timing of every Mii known to exist in the data has been planned out since the Holiday - Winter Tour stretch, and the unique ID increases ending in Winter Tour suggest that every tour from now until every planned Mii is released is planned within the ID increases for these 4 toursNew Year:>252>254>258>273 (Pink Mii)New Year “1st time” ID increases:>GBA CCI - Riverside gap (Luigi Circuit + 2 other GBAs)>GCN DK Mountain - Yoshi Circuit gap (Waluigi Stadium, Mushroom Bridge/City)>Wii Daisy Circuit gapSpace:>240>247>250>271 (Light-green Mii)Space “1st time” ID increases:>GBA CCI - Riverside gap again (for the 2nd of 3 GBAs)>Wii Maple Treeway - Mushroom Gorge gap (Moo Moo Meadows and/or Mario Circuit and/or Moonview Highway, but +5 so could be adding another track)>Berlin - Hill Climb gap (mobDK)>Paris - Singapore gap (city like I said before?)Winter:>251>257>270 (Light-blue Mii)>272 (Orange Mii)Winter “1st time” increases>GBA gap again (3rd of the 3 GBAs)>Wii M gap again (1 or 2 of the 3 remaining Wiis starting with M)>Bangkok 3 - Berlin gap (mobBR, see >>1156780for why)>LA - New York gap (mobMD?)There are no more unused Mii boosts nor “new” ID increases past this point
>>1156905So AT, BR, DK, MD, P/S gap are accounted for in my theory, except there is now a missing new track, because there are 4 more prefixless tracks coming to MK8, and BR, DK and Piranha Plant Cove only make 3, so ??? (MU and NU assumed scrapped/tests)>AT - Holiday increase>BR - Winter increase >DK - Space increase>MD - Winter increase >Paris/Singapore gap - Space increase 6th nitro - ??? (Does it exist? The only hint of this existing is the last unprefixed wave 6 track)Super TLDR - Seemingly every unreleased track and unreleased Mii suit was prepared for release during the Holiday - Winter Tour stretch, every tour those new tracks and Miis are for seems to have been prepared during that same stretch, and no more new ID gaps or unused Mii slots have been added ever since then; and no new ID increases have happened to any track not increased during that stretch, which may or may not have implications for the game’s futureI can also connect the Mii ID info to the driver ID chart posted here >>1152536, after all IDs for Miis, recolors and scrapped IDs are taken out, the remaining IDs that should be for new drivers that are not Miis or recolors are:>48>53>81>187>205>206>207>210>255>256>277>279Regarding ID 276, I can’t tell what happened to it after it disappeared from the list of Miis; and about ID 242, someone said just an hour ago that 242 originally had a duplicate of Pinja in it before the data for 242 got deleted, so 242 does look scrapped
>>1156772>bought the Taiko Drum DasherMe, too, got a good feeling about this one.
>>1157026I’m waiting for next tour trailer to decide; since next tour is very likely Yoshi’s Island, I really hope they do a teaser for a new alt tomorrow
>>1157054don't get it, it's small as fuck
>>1157404Poochy is coming as a driver. Hope he has a good item, after the last four seasonal track's drivers.
>>1157404>>1157407we may be seeing the next coinbox driver,?it's been a while since larry wintertime
>>1157409I'd be welcome to it, if only to see Poochy be viable. Could be some line of logic that he sniffs out valuable items.
also, I'm guessing this suit will be based on him and not on the piranha plant again, really weird how they skipped spike but are adding poochy
>>1157409if he really has coinbox then it's certain that the tour after will be a city, since all CB drivers have to get ''tainted'' with city coverage either during their introduction tour or the one immediately after
>>1157418Lines up with rumors of an all-city tour with Athens and the older European cities.
THE GOLD PIPES MASON
>>1157422doesn't add me coverage but it's new so can't complain
Am I blind because I can’t make out Poochy in that blob of pixels in the teaser
Latest update on driver IDs, it was clarified that ID 255 is also scrapped; and also explicitly clarified that the remaining driver IDs are apparently:>48>81>187>205>206>207>210>256>277>279
Is there a chance that Poochy isn’t a coinbox/banana/boomerang/lucky 7 driver?
Wait, actuallyLast 3 original drivers:>Kamek (coinbox)>Chuck (lucky 7)>Petey (boomerang)Last 3 shop drivers:>Winter Larry (coinbox)>Astro Toad (boomerang)>Explorer Shy Guy (lucky 7)If Poochy is giant banana then he completes both quartets at once
>>1157424got this glider three times now in the last two or three, insane
How to make friends please
>>1157740I really doubt it, the only original character that didn't get a meta skill I think was regular king bob-omb and that's because the giga bomb was doable for this racing game, I don't know much about poochy but I haven't seen the character shooting a projectile or anything that could point his potential skill but simply being able to walk over spikes to help yoshi cross between platforms so maybe a heart skill but who knows>>1157853I can't add you because I already have my friend list full but you can search the pinned megathread in the mkt subreddit, people post their friendcodes there all the time
>>1157853Just post your fc
>>1157853 (me)My friend code is 7192 8294 1976
The teaser for the next tour’s Mii suit will be interesting, especially if they show more than 1 Mii silhouette; and especially if it’s 5 Mii silhouettes like I think might happen
>>1157422Tour Gifts (not shown): Tanooki Rosalina (to Lv5.2), Pink Gold Meteors (to Lv2), Mario Aviator (to Lv3.1).All clear pipe (not shown): Black Dozer (to Lv2)Token Shop pipe random gold: Pirate Sushi Racerpurchased Premium Challenges:PC: OffroaderPC+: Cloud Glider, Treasure MapPC++: Kamek, Luigi Parafoil
So the piranha plant mii suit: Fire Flower or Boomerang?
>>1158162>especially if it’s 5 Mii silhouettes like I think might happenWait, why's that? Only guess I got is for the five cities, but Winter Tour just got one for Singapore.
>>1158287Look at the theory I posted earlier, I said in 1 part that it looks like 8 Mii suits will be released over the next 3 tours; and next tour only has 1 new Mii
>>1157407>yfw white spike
https://youtu.be/kNbSaFoJRKQhttps://youtu.be/g1vEHxmDuwsthe trailers and the next suit
>>1158305Well it’s just the Blue Mii then, which I still predicted anyway, since Blue Mi = ID 267 and that ID was removed in Holiday Tour
poochy looks really tiny, now I don't want him with a coinbox
>>1158308He seems to be same size as Yoshi. The Birthday Girl karts are just really fucking small.
So the trailer thumbnail has Egg Hunt Yoshi and Gold Yoshi on the front with Poochy at the back, but the actual trailer shows Egg Hunt and Poochy together, and then Goldshi driving with the ranked reward; the last 2 tour trailers had the entire tour spotlight driving with the ranked reward, so Goldshi is the spotlight for both weeks, while Egg Hunt is week 1 and Poochy week 2? I really don’t want Poochy to be locked to only week 2 of the tour thoughEgg Hunt and Goldshi being on the front of the thumbnail might mean they are the week 1/2 spotlights instead, this trailer’s inconsistent between the thumbnail and the driver scenes
what is this glider supposed to be? at first I thought it was wiggler but it has a heart in the middle and kinda looks like a piece of jewelry too
>Piranha Mii = 249 (assumption)>Next tour Blue Mii = 267>Remaining Holiday Mii IDs = 259 - 264What are all those Mii IDs going to be for then, especially since after Blue Mii there’s likely only 1 tour left that uses changes from Holiday
>>1158324I had no idea those are his cookies from his snes game
>>1158324Yoshi's Cookie. Probably lines up with Cookie Land being on the rotation for this tour.
>>1158305>>1158307>even more evidence for Metropolis Tour 2 later next monthWoo lads!
>>1158330I hope they don’t end up putting Cookie Land in ranked, but it could fit like thisYoshi Tour ranked:>Yoshi’s Island x2>Yoshi Desert x2>Yoshi Valley R/T>Cookie LandRanked for tour after that:>Athens 1 x2>Athens 2 x2>Berlin 1R/T>Paris BI hope ranked Cookie Land doesn’t happen though since the debut of Paris B + it being in ranked is pretty certain for the tour after
>>1158333yeah, it looks like ranked is going to be brutal, hopefully petey, gold egg and kangaroo do the heavy lifting for all these new tracks and we don't get another snowland situation.
>another garbage skillThis will be the 7th tour in a row I haven't bought a Mii Suit.
Poochy in spotlight shop confirmed at least
The other new spotlight shop items for the tour; also there was no shop banner for the Piranha Mii posted which implies it might be a ranked reward
https://youtube.com/watch?v=YthTFdgTZyUOk I don’t speak Spanish but this guy said that the week 2 ranked rewards are Gold Yoshi + his glider, which is….strange
>>1158551Oh, and here’s his original post about it(Light-blue Yoshi and Turbo Yoshi are week 1’s ranked rewards)
>>1158551>>1158553yeah, this would be the first time nintendo has done this, now the gold drivers like gold chuck, king boo and so on are a possibility for upcoming tours. fortunately for me, I already have that yoshi and that glider so I will only focus on week 1 for the light blue one
>poochy is on the table but not e. gaddwhy even exist
>>1158166see and this is why I never buy the premium challenge cards, you're just most likely to pull trash-tier stuff out of the-"GOLD PIPES MASON " now that everything is so old with only a few exceptions of good stuff like the candlelight cake,jukebox car&a few of the coinboxers.
One more glider has been revealed: a Smiley Flower glider. Probably one of the commemorative packs.>>1158551Wait, is the kart commemorative then? Thought it would be a Week 2 reward. Guessing that they wanted to do something a bit more involved for Goldshi since he's still a bit recent for Gold Pass.>>1158553Poochy is really going to be Week 2, isn't he? Shame if that's the case.I love Easter, so think I'm going to dump most of my Rubies into this tour.
I was wondering; why is Fire Rosalina specifically considered her own character with her own cup while other powerup alts like Cat Mario, Luigi, Toad, Rosalina; Penguin Mario, Luigi, Toad, Toadette; and Tanooki Rosalina don’t count?
>>1158948Just give it time. Cat Peach and Tanooki Mario have cups.
One of the content creators who got early info on the Yoshi Tour from Nintendo is claiming this is what content is to be expected next tour. Lines up with the track list from >>1155744 as well as content in the trailer.
Easter /d/k/gs are treated like the Christmas-themed items aren't they? That's why we've never seen stuff like the "Bright" objects & Purple Bunny in the Spotlight Shop, correct me if i'm wrong? means they'll probably only be back for this Tour.
I've been buying all the Miis but I think I'll skip blue just to buy Poochy and the new glider.
>>1159158I also noticed this and agree that they are hard to get.The Bright Balloons glider and Purple Bunny kart keep showing up in the Rundown as good pairings for optimal coverage with top gliders/karts.I think they probably cover a lot of older courses with little overlap on the newer high end stuff, so they may be worth getting.
>>1159255I missed the Purple Bunny, but got the Bright Balloons when it was in a pack to finally obtain Nabbit. They turned out to be surprisingly useful.Easter items don't have the best track record in fairness, but I'd say they've all had some genuine use outside the initial Egg Hunt Yoshi set. Would call the Christmas items worse, for a close comparison.
>>1159264Addentum: the Gold Bunny is also kind of shite. Just forgot about that because most of the gold karts blend together in terms of being garbage. Conversely, I'd say that the Gold Egg is one of the few decent ones past its small hitbox, especially considering its age. Wouldn't recommend buying it over other options unless you like the design, but it covers a lot of tracks with weak alternates.
I got some of the Easter stuff last year (pic). Only Gold Egg Yoshi (Lv4) has really been useful, but he has been relatively weak for a coinboxer. I got several coinboxers after Gold Egg Yoshi and already have them at a higher level: Thai Daisy (Lv5), King Mario (Lv6), Gold Petey (Lv5), Winter Larry (Lv5).The karts are kind of small; maybe useful for multiplayer. Gold Eggshell Glider would've helped my coverage last summer, but I think I've plugged the gaps since then.
>>1159265>>1159271 (me)Forgot about the Gold Bunny.Never really had a use for it, like most gold K/G.My ultimate fear is that the final boss in MKT will be Gold Mario from Coin Rush, and the last tour will feature a new course with all gold D/K/G on the top shelf with crazy rewards, but all my gold K/G will be at level 1.
>>1159271Dreamy Egg didn't debut during a Yoshi Tour, actually. Gold Eggshell had some nice buffs after its initial debut, but did overlap some other recent gliders around that time. Egg Hunt and his kart are obviously shit.
>>1159056Cat Peach and Tanooki Mario have cups because they have unique emblems from MK8, Fire Rosalina and Kitsune Luigi are also considered unique characters because they have unique emblems; but Tanooki Rosalina, Cat Luigi, Penguin Mario etc. don’t have unique emblems so they aren’t unique characters
Now I’m debating between buying the Taiko Drum Dasher or saving to get the limited Easter stuff next tour (kart and 2 gliders); Ninja stuff isn’t limited while Easter stuff is. right
>>1159454Ninja Hideaway usually only comes back once a year.But you're right, Ninja stuff like the Hop Rods and the Ninja scrolls appear during the rest of the year, and are not seasonal. (e.g., pic)Usually stuff will appear in the shop when it has good track coverage and isn't totally out of theme.
It feels really silly that Ninja Hideaway reappeared in a tour before Koopa Beach 2 did
>>1158406How is this gacha game able to destroy MK8 time and time again. It adds Poochy with the Yoshi's Island track and MK8 gets Birdo trash for some ungodly reason.
Without paying for a good account, how am I supposed to get the top reward?I can only count 8 stars in cups that I haven't completed and those ones are out of reach for me
>>1159738>gacha gameWell this is technically no longer true.
>>1159784You use the star tickets. It is what it is until you have a decent repertoir of dkg.
>>1156772 (me)>>1155161 (me)Update: 2nd place so far.Lucky to be competitive with no tickets spent yet. Want to hold top 3; don't need top 2 since I already won the rewards in Week 1.May need to bump Thai Daisy up to Lv6 and try for a higher score after clearing the token shop pipe tomorrow. Also thinking about taking Pinja to Lv7/3cap, but the cost in tickets is more than I'll get back.
>>1159837I see what you mean, for those maps I'm missing out on, I just don't have a full trio of the top choice which means these aren't happening. although I did spend too long wondering what 'G' follows Donkey Kong.I've reduced it down to just 1 star missing for the penultimate prize so I'l might have a few more goes at the map while I can and use the star ticket for that if I can't.I have 13 stored so I won't use them all up to get the H skill up ticket
>>1160113Different map, scored a combo of 70 which gave me the edge for the last star needed. Would have been higher if I hadn't fallen down a hole so I think this was lucky to have still come first
