Considering Luigi was intentionally left out from day 1, I am guessing the Halloween tour was always in the cards. There may/may not be a new course to go with it but I think that's fine. The focus for new courses seems to be real world major cities, so spacing those out with other general themed Tours makes sense.

And I would be shocked if we didn't get halloween costume variants of characters as spotlights.
Yeah it was obvious the Halloween event was planned for a while since Luigi has been missing. I just mean that it may feel last minute if the developers didn't create any Halloween-related content exclusive to this game and are instead using series' past content for it. It would be madness though to put Luigi as a spotlight driver given how he "should" be in normal rotation and probably isn't high-end in rarity.

I'm just disappointed in this game. I can barely feel the care to play it with how it's geared to the point and need certain carts and so much luck system. All in the name to hope and get more loot to buy more of it. What's the fun in this system

I mean given how lackluster the tour courses have been so far I don't think a last minute Halloween course would feel all that different.

I'd prefer one to just not having them at all though. Even a new course that serves as cheap LM3 fanservice would be better since it could come back better as a Retro course in MK9.

I think the problem with the city courses has been a matter of the devs making a bad call rather than them not getting enough development time, particularly because the art assets that went into them are so detailed. If they would've combined the different paths into a single lap they would be a lot better, but as it is the layouts are way too short and basic all in the name of having something "new" on repeat tours.

Poltergust is great and all but give me my Dry Bomber god damnit. They have all the favorites in already, just that last one and they can move on to the later games for all I care.

Who uses a brown Pipe Frame?
That's the big question. You'd think it's DK but nope.

Edit. Just remembered Wiggler use the brown colors in 7 so maybe it's him.

Based on past games only Wiggler and Miis in the DK suit used brown. Wiggler would be pretty cool, and I believe data miners have found files that point to potential Mii characters.

Of course anything could change, and we have to take into account new characters/alts too.

Kimono Peach's special is by far the worst of the game. I effectively am just helping everyone else in front of me.
Eh, Boost Ring is probably worse just because they affect more people than the mushrooms do.

You can hypothetically pick up all the mushrooms and prevent other people from getting the boosts themselves, but the ring sticks around regardless of if you hit it or not.

Still no Wendy in shop, I don’t think I’ll be able to complete that challenge.
Same with Hakama Mario, stay behind one and get your combos rolling!
Oh for sure. I've only seen that a couple times though.
Also you don't have Kimono Peach or Peachette? The challenges work with them as well. I also am pretty sure Wendy was on the shop yesterday or the day before, unless everyone gets different ones.

Nah they’re both high-end and I don’t pull for now.
Everyone has indeed different shops, this is my current one

Wario is in my shop today... Should I get him? I'm leaning toward no since tracks for him are pretty limited.

And Wendy showed up today too! I can finally complete tbe ribbon driver challenge.

The problem with Spotlight characters is this.

They’re too difficult to level up. They can only be levelled up via High End tickets once they’ve left the Spotlight. They don’t appear in the shop and they’re taken away from any pipe pulls once their Spotlight ends.

So for me, I need 2 Kimono Peach’s to upgrade her to Level 4. I won’t be able to get additionals out of the pipe after her Spotlight finishes, she won’t appear in the Shop and High End Driver upgrade tickets are almost as rare. So she’ll be stuck on Level 3 for the foreseeable future.

This is my current score, there is F2P players and no ruby spent players like me :p

Will have to use some next Tour I feel like, plus I kinda want King Boo.
I'm F2P too but definitely not no rubies spent. 23,443 is impressive.

I'm currently sitting at 24,817 because someone suddenly jumped up 4k to take 1st over the weekend and I had to fight back.

I've been working on the 1-4 challenge card requirements even though I still need to meet the skill level 4 requirement but, someone's also posted the 1-5 card. I think these have distracted me from focusing on the ranked cup but I should be better prepared for the coming tour(s) because of it. At least that's what I keep telling myself ;-P
