Looks like I got knocked down to second in the last min. I've got some level up tickets, not sure if I should use them to try and claim back first.

Also, I feel I'm the only one that gets absolutely nothing in the pipes and the shop. Always the same koopling kids....

Great, I played so much of this game I appear to have rubbed off the oleophobic coating on my screen protector.

There's a big spot where I stear/drift, haha.

tfw i'm a mere 500 points behind 1st place but i don't want to spend my hoard of high-end kart tickets on spotlight karts that have barely any favored courses outside of this tour

I truly cannot get a higher score with my current gear. I’m stuck at 42,075 and while I am in first, it’s by a mere 100 points....and we have 24 hours left

If you want stuff from the pipe save up at least 250 rubies before pulling so you can pool them into one pipe rather than pulling a little from each.

Man, everyone posting about +40k scores and I've basically capped at 35k. No point in really trying when your missing the best gliders for 2 tracks.

I needed to spend A LOT high end tickets to upgrade my gear, I'm actually fighting to get that first place (at 52,092),I'm pretty sure I still have room to improve, I just need enough luck to get those sweet frenzies. I really hate the luck factor in this game but, oh well, it's a gacha at the end.

Just got to the top of my ranking with a score of 38,123. Second place has 36,651 so I’m not sure if I’m gonna be safe by Wednesday.

I got a score of 16,144 on Rainbow Road T with a x98 combo. That’s the highest I’ve scored for any individual course.

Somehow managed to add 300 points to my already ridiculous Rainbow Road score. Coin, super horn & banana frenzy did the trick. I'm imagining three coin frenzies now 🤔
It was either upgrade Queen Bee to 3 or Swift Jack to 2. Went with the former since it's easier to maintain combos on Daisy Hills and 7 favored courses compared to 3 ignoring tour specific tracks.
Looks like you saw some pretty immediate results from the upgrade. Good decision, lol.

I probably should have done this but I'm committed to the Super Glider now. Only five more until it reaches level six, hahaha.

Decided to dump my high-end tickets into the Queen Bee near the very end, ended up being a good idea since I apparently just barely took 3rd. People are out for BLOOD now

Came up 500 points short. Oh well, still got second. Getting to Tier 40 on the first possible week can still be done.

Hold up. What Rainbow Road is this?

edit: 7 was supposed to be in 8 or 9 dang it. Glad that past tour kart and glider spotlights are gold pass items.

also that 2020 glider is looking tight, they just squeezed an extra $1.99 out of me ngl

So no freebie high end driver for gold pass subs but instead they'll get a kart and glider from the original NY tour pipe.

Rainbow Road 3DS is incredible! Wow, I can't wait to deep in the tour and play those amazing variations.

Literally just yesterday I was thinking to myself that they should add MK7 Rainbow Road and here it is, the slight makeover they gave it looks really great. I was wondering how they'd handle it since every other course has 2 laps, but it works the same as on 3DS so it's technically the only course in the game with 3 laps.

Edit: Also, I like that the Gold Pass rewards this time are Pauline's special kart/glider from the first tour for anybody who missed out. Definitely takes the sting out of tour reruns.

I've been hoarding rubies for ~4 tours and dumped them on the Yoshi pipe.
Got the 3 spotlights, 2020 glider, platinum taxi, pauline, birdo, freerunning koopa and pit stop toad.
I guess I can be pretty satisfied with that.

FYI: Regular Pauline has been added to the off-banner High-End Drivers. :)

There's also a Pauline Cup now too, so I'm thinking this will be permanent.

The player who gave me trouble last week is back for this ranking and has all the spotlights and Birdo already. Not even going to try lmao. 😒
Edit: Seems like they lack King Boo though. That could even things out since he doesn't show up in the daily shop anymore.

Wow, original Pauline isn't even a Frenzy character in all NY courses? What a joke.

Also where's the multiplayer? Ugh.

I don't think there's been a single pipe exclusive high end that was tier 3 on all their tour exclusive courses. They probably wanna divide it up between both tour specific drivers in order to encourage pulling both pipes and spending but I've always been content with just getting one of them if possible.

Wow MK7 RR is a cool surprise!!

Sad about no multiplayer. Thought it would be here since this is the last December tour unless they add it just randomly in here.

For real. I see that New York Minute 2 on the ranked cup this week is all tier 3s from the pipe...

After playing a few more cups, I think they added the godlike Rainbow Road because New York Minute 2 is comically low effort. You take a different path than before but it still feels basically the same, and you don't even get to go through that tunnel by the Statue of Liberty that they teased ages ago... which means there's going to be a New York Minute 3?

MK7 Rainbow Road feels like a big boy track compared to most other courses they've used in Tour so far, lol.
Lmaooo my three point lead held and I kept 1st!
A win is a win!
I lost my streak this tour ):
My streak of first place finishes was ended a while ago. While the tiers weren't changing, I was getting punished by players with much better gear. I also put in less effort since there was no tier advancement incentive until last week's ranking. I got lucky with a favorable loadout and placed first when the chips were down, hahaha.

At the very least, I can say that I've never placed lower than third 🙃

The top three of us that were in my group last week are back for me as well 😔

I did three pulls and got:

- Reindeer Yoshi

- Jingle Bells
- Zuicchini
- Turbo Bird

- Piston Glider
- Pink Flower Glider

Which is not too shabby! Was really hoping to magically pull Pauline off-focus, and to get my girl Birdo finally, but the fates wouldn't allow it. Maybe I can do a christmas crowdfund on twitter and just buy her as a gift lmao.

Got first place last ranking and got Reindeer Yoshi on my second 10-pull.

This tour is off to a good start!

Edit: I just played the 3DS Rainbow Road and wow! That's one of the best Mario Kart tracks I've seen, very fun and impressive.

Blew all of my rubies, but it was worth it as I got the Reindeer Yoshi set in the pipe!! :D

Wish I would've been lucky to pull Birdo too but no such luck.

Wow quite happy with the direction of this tour.

Past spotlights in the gold pass, one of the new spotlights in a $2 pack, Pauline back in the pipe as a regular high end, nice additions with 3DS Rainbow Road and Birdo.

They just need to put a better selection in the shop and I'll be really happy.
