They are removing ruby pipes.
>>
>>978226
Like how I was expecting next thread’s OP to be the lame Mario vs. Luigi Tour rehash, then this happened.
>>
I suddenly feel like I had a prophecy when I decided to put the game down the other night.
There's no way eos isn't incoming.
>>
>>978226
I don't play this, but I'm assuming that rubies are the p2w currency and they're getting rid of the paid gacha (ruby pipe) while still allowing players to use that currency with the stuff in the "spotlight shop" aka the new p2w part of the shop menu, is that right?
>>
>>978348
Yes. New items would usually premiere in weekly pipes and you had to gacha for them, now you can buy them out right with no gambling.
>>
>>978356
Okay, yeah. That's a bad sign because that goes against the gacha "trick" for exploiting whales.
>>
>>978226
Doesn't mean daily pipes, pipes with green coins or other currencies will go away.
>>
Looking forward to whatever crazy pipes they bring out as a goodbye.
The gambler in me will miss them, but it's for the best.
>>
>>978262
I was 50/50 earlier on whether it's a sign of a sunset, but after thinking on it I think it's more a final attempt to try and soft reboot the game to improve its reception among people not playing it right now. It's not like this system is going to be all that generous either, most likely. Nintendo now has full control over pricing with the luck factor being hugely toned down. They WILL tempt people to buy as many items as possible, and if you are low on Rubies you'll be forced to pay up instead of chancing a lucky pull.

>>978348
Rubies are definitely staying. They will just be used in the shops instead. It's the same premium currency.

>>978702
Absolutely think in hindsight that the token pipes in particular were in preparation for this change. The Mii Shop as well, with it happening around the same time.

>>978867
We've got a Team Rally next, and likely 3rd Anniversary immediately after. They are going to go ham during those.
>>
>>979105
Oh it's absolutely a final resort and also a sunset.
Unless this somehow doesn't backfire, being still feasible for f2p to do and still be a heavy whale draw, the game is done for.
>>
Now if they let you unlock these skins and characters in 8DX if you have them in tour, I'd be all over this shit and im sure a lot of others would be too.
>>
>>979179
Don't lie, the majority of MK8DX fans doesn't give a shit about "characters" if their lobbies are full of Waluigis for the same reason almost everyone used Funky Kong in MKWii.
>>
>>979192
A loud set of retards who can't think for themselves isn't indicative of the overall fanbase.
>>
>>978226
inb4 the amount of rubies needed are so absurd that the gacha system was better
>>
>>979240
Except it's not a loud set of retards but 90% of the community. I play as Isabelle myself whenever I hop on 8dx, hope they bring her over to tour soon.
>>
>>979192
>if their lobbies are full of Waluigis

That is literally just Japanese players.
>>
I just realized DK has yet to get a high-end alt, what's up with that?
>>
Downloading the app now, any tips for new players?
>>
>>979641
Yeah, uninstall and don't fucking bother.
>>
>>979641
Unironically, read the subreddit. Their FAQ will help you figure shit out, I would also recommend watching videos about learning manual driving, that will help you on ranked mode and for multiplayer is a night and day difference. these threads are more for casual chatting and news about the game. Also, the gacha is still not gone and will last until the anniversary at the end of the month, it would be wise if you save some rubies for those pipes that nintendo will bring, I bet those will be really good for new players and if not, save for the new spotlight shop in october

What's the best way to raise your score for the ranked cup?
>>
>>981223
Take your time forcing your dashes and waiting to be on last places to have better items and frenzies to hit other racers but being aware to stay on first place after.
That and luck, frenzy has more chance to show up on the second lap so its better to use tickets when it starts or when you get hit or when you feel that you are about to lose the combo chain
Also the game doesnt allow you to have two frenzies in a row, the limit of frenzies are 3 per race
>>
>>981223
Use a spreadsheet to calculate your max score, raise your player level each tour and watch videos about which lines to take for nonstop combo and extra actions/boxes.
I like watching hiro's videos to see how many actions are possible on a track, now that zephiel is semi retired, this guy is probably the best player right now

Seems to be a bit of a mixup going on between the two trailers, the official twitter one shows Kimino Peach but the App store one shows Yukata Peach.

>>983821
That's exactly why I pulled, actually.
Anniversary will only have re runs if previous years are anything to go by. I doubt they will be putting a new driver in there.
Last year we had Kamek and Kangaroo Yoshi right before the anniversary and pulling both of those was the right call. Knight will be a useful driver.

Well I mean the game's bound for EoS and there's no reason to summon on the most trash pipe ever so they have to keep you invested somehow

I wouldn't be doomfagging just yet, they're adding battle mode along with (assumingly) a new kart part, being balloons.
With the removal of gacha bullshit the game with hit new highs and won't be sunsetting any time soon.
That said, the roadmaps have been complete and utter garbage ever since the retirement of the three tour celebration. I guess their effort is going into the actual game instead of promotional material now.
>>

>>983688
Shit the new Boo Glider is a week 2 spotlight.

>>983706
It will payoff tho, nintendo is making sure that each new good skill driver gets at least a couple of good buffs. I had to almost empty the piranha pipe for petey at the time and he was finally useful last tour and now he's in ranked again

That is the hope. Knighty is already very helpful in this week's ranked so I see a bright future.

that doesn't make any sense, they are making more money than ever now with this game, if they are removing the gacha element is because they have to do it to keep operating, why would they spend resources implementing battle mode and more shit they said is also coming if the game was near the EoS?
>>
they’ll still make money from the gold passes and premium challenges
people will also still buy rubies if they want to buy a character quickly instead of grinding so yeah. Killing gacha will still leave the game profitable AND kill off a lot of negative rep around the game
Smart move for them honestly
>>
>>984581
>Gold Pass
Completely worthless these days.
And I don't think you quite understand how whales operate.
>>
>>984654
which is why i said people will still buy rubies…
>>
>>984656
1. The average light spender doesn't buy rubies outside of bundles.
2. I don't think you understand just how much whales spend on average.
2a. Some whales actually don't spend resources like tickets just so they can flex their spending harder
2b. No gacha = much less rubies spent on average unless the cost of the new character, kart, and glider available is 150 a piece
2c. Many whales won't want anything to do with basically being handed what they want
>>
>>984654
>>984665
I've been gold pass forever and with smart planning and realistic expectations I've never bought rubies from any real money source including bundles

Peach only lost because of the recovery bonus during the last day, this time team mario outclasses team luigi so much that even with almost a whole week of recovery on their side and the double bonus on saturday, they still haven't taken the lead, I wonder how would the score be without this dynamic.

Even with the continuous recovery bonus, team luigi did 13M less than mario today, the only way they could be able to win at this point is to keep the bonus until the very last day, manage to get a 51/49 disadvantage and hope for team mario being worn out but maybe not even all that could do it.

to be fair, everyone knows anniversary tours are only good for new-ish players because the pipes are decent to fill your coverage gaps, for veteran players the only value comes from farming experience from rare cities. I'm not interested in king mario but the tours after that will be interesting , specially halloween, I bet we'll get a brand new character there
>>
>>994789
He'll have all city unlocks as well. Chef Rosalina is the only other driver in that situation, and she's pretty mediocre for someone with Giant Banana.
>>
>>994817
Yeah, all cities tours are always a pain in the ass for strategy. It's guaranteed that you will have very low level coverage on several tracks so investing is only possible for whales. King mario will have 8-9 starting tracks being all cities making him complete garbage. also gold chuck, luigi knight, petey, thai daisy, and white tanooki may be affected as well with those terrible buffs.
>chef rosa is pretty mediocre for someone with Giant Banana.

I think Tuxedo Mario is middle of the road in terms of track coverage. His problem is that they seem to have some passionate reason to always keep him out of ranked. Usually that’s not a major factor, but it’s so consistent that I think it’s an actual issue.

Hakama may be the worst Coin Box at this point, yeah. Even Party Time Pauline at least has a big hitbox and can be an alternate option to other old Coin Boxers (ex. Gold Dry Bones and Swimwear Rosalina) on a small handful of tracks.

Would have been nice for them to throw in Thai Daisy to make this final premiere pipe feel special, but at the same time I'm certainly not shocked they passed on her to add at least some filler to the pipe. Bangkok isn't even featured in the tour for some reason.

Week 2 is underwhelming as fuck. They already paired Volendam Rosalina with Lederhosen Luigi back in the similar Metropolis Tour recently, and both he and Baseball Mario are well past being worth pulling on their own rights. What a lame ass pipe to end on.

boy am i glad i dropped this shit. got 825 rubies though. guessing i should just keep hoarding them at this point.

You could spend them on Marios since King Mario is going to be the rarest Driver in the game.

seems like my chances are pretty low and rubies might become even more valuable post pipes.. i might do a few pulls.

Anyone else not care about trying for the White Generic Color Suit and don't feel like investing in city tracks? I'm sure it's just gonna show up in the Mii Shop in like 2 Tours from now.

For sure, the only one worth grinding ranked and spending tickets is blockhead, which could still appear at the shop like the rosa suit did not too long ago.

I would've stopped at pic, the Mario set is pretty bad and Rooshi and Silver Surfer are the two things worth getting here.

You have to be mentally retarded to pull for him. Hands down the worst driver value-wise in ages. Huge shame since he looks really good.

I can see him getting like 40 tracks total because of that

Also with how courses are picked in Mk8dx online of course people will go with the driver+parts combo to have the best coverage. If the course was picked first and THEN you could pick your driver you'd see people flex in their picks.
>>
>>1000911
Some drivers are hitting 40-41 and we still have the early high ends with sub 13 courses at level 6 lmao

is king mario worth pulling for or nah?
>>
>>1005111
depend on how much you like gambling. you could get him in next to no pulls or you could spend 450+ rubies and not get him.
>>
>>1005111
>medium size driver
>all city coverage
>even triple uncapped, still inferior to blockhead and gold suit
>gold chuck came out very recently too so both will have tons of overlap
>mario alt, all of them have been terrible, so bad that technically penguin is better than tuxedo, all the other alts are pretty bad.
>1/15 chance to get him, even after spending 450 rubies, the odds of getting him are only slightly better than flipping a coin. Carlos85 spent 2250 rubies and he only got him 4 times
TLDR, no, don't pull for him. Chef rosa is a similar driver and she only has like 6 non city 2022 tracks and the rest are cities and very old tracks, that will be the fate of king mario.
>>
>>1005111
Tough call. On one hand he could end up being very strong if he doesn't come back for a long time after this. On the other, he's a major gamble for a driver whose future is currently uncertain. I'd say the best two questions are how many elite items (Coin Box, Boomerang, Giant Banana, to a lesser extent Lucky Seven) you own right now, and how many of the Marios you already own from that pipe. If you don't get King but still have a chance at getting something at least semi-useful, then pulling seems much more viable.
>>
>>1004458
If they did something like maxed out Supers and Commons (both for driver points and level) add their courses added to other HE drivers then at least it would give them some relevancy.

You maxed out Daisy both ways? Congrats, all courses she gets top-end coverage in now applies to all Daisy alts as well. fuck balance at this point.
>>
Boo hoo this lucky 7 pipe is so bad don't pull i pulled 1000 rubies and didnt get nabbit beware

so i've been gone since mii suits were introduced. may i ask what the point of them was ultimately? looking around it would appear they don't get as much value or use as regular drivers. just a way for them to stop introducing new normal or super drivers i'm assuming?

Not really, some of them dominate the meta now, if you can choose between the metallic suits/the ? suit/those with lucky 7 or boomerang, you will score better than with any other driver. Plus now that gacha is going away along with the spotlight boost, the only benefit remaining will be for the miis getting a boost on the first track of every cup and since more of them have been datamined, we're seeing possibly +2000 base points suits in the near future, completely demolishing any other driver
>>
>>1006865
They have less coverage on average, but the more you have the higher their base points can get. A triple uncapped Mii can have almost 1700 points now. So if a Mii with a top 4 item pops up on ranked, if you've investing in them, they'll be your best option for that track by far.
>>
>>1006912
>>1006913
yuck. gonna be impossible for me to get back into this i guess. oh well, i was getting mega bored.
>>
>>1006914
To be fair, the other suits can be good options to fill up your coverage quickly, nintendo put them there to test the new spotlight shop and to give new players a chance to catch up
>>
>>1006918
think there's a chance of the good suits coming back?
>>
Not a fan of the Mii suits.
If I like Rosa or DK, I want to race with the actual character, not my avatar in a pink jumpsuit or a monkey suit.
The Mii suits are killing the meta in base points, but their course coverage is crap. You either go all in on all of them, or stay away. In a year or two, they'll be like the MkII carts or the Hanafuda gliders: sitting at the bottom of your inventory unused.
>>
>>1006920
yes, the ? will eventually be at the shop and the other suits with good skill rotate every tour. then the metallic ones are technically free so it's just grinding
>>
>>1006924
not all suits have bad coverage, though. gold suit already has 32 tracks, already more than meowser and king bomb gold, bronze has 23, silver and ? suit have 22 and keep getting more, the shitty ones are obviously those themed suits that only serve to give you quick coverage on a new track.

Is Black Carriage good? I got it from my 5 ten pulls.
>>
>>1007585
Not really, all the new items from this tour, king mario, castle suit, white suit, gold double decker, gold clouds, white waves origami and black carriage have all cities starting coverage so it will take a while for them to be decent since these tracks only come back once in a while, in case of that kart, its skill isn't that good and its size is kinda small but it could end up having a lot of tracks since I doubt many people will pull for that pipe
>>
>>1007563
For me it's less "shame" and more "I can't believe it". One of, if not the rarest, most valuable driver.
>>
>>1007563
Shame they didn't make any more 16-bit drivers
>>
>>1007689
genuinely can't believe they didn't do that. it would have been so damn easy to do too, both smk characters are so fun and damn cool to play as. i would have absolutely came back earlier if they did smk bowser. like why the hell not, tragic.

I'm really curious to see if the new base point cap increase will affect the miis as well, if not, this would even things out. tier 99 making the gold suit more accessible and eventually having the ? suit at the shop would be hard nerfs for the miis in the near future, but if they are affected too then they will be even more broken and maybe tier 99 will have a super special god mode suit as a ranked reward

Chef stuff is being dumped into the shop next tour. RMX Donut Plains 1 is the new track. Only two battle tracks shown are GBA Battle Course 1 and Cookie Land, although I could see Twilight House the following tour for Halloween.

Or london 4 could be the halloween tour once again which would suck because it should be a new iconic retro track and a brand new driver
