Got Party Time Toad and his kart/glider in my first 20 pulls of the new pipe! My gacha luck has returned... for now.
Added. Happy to help with those early challenges.
Same for me. Crushed it last week (got 1st fairly easily). This week I'm in 10th and am behind 1st by like 12k. I know there are some points I can make up with a few lucky runs, but I'm not making up 12k. Will be lucky to just not go down a tier.I have a 6k lead in the ranked cup and no one has moved up since yesterday morning. I'm not complaining, but the ranked cups have been a seesaw affair for me since they increased the cap from 20. First I'll dominate one week, then the next week I will have to fight to merely not lose ranking, and then I'll get an easy win again the following week. I really like the score attack gameplay, so it's sort of the worst of both worlds where I'll go from being hopelessly outgunned one week to having no pressure of competition at all the next.
Has this seesawing been merely a coincidence for me? Or do the rest of ya'll see swings in ranked difficult based on your previous week's performance?
10.2k behind 1st and sitting at 11th in tier 29...
All that I wanted was to hit level 30 this time!
I think it means that featured karts and gliders won’t get an additional bonus for the tour. Basically it’ll be easier for F2P players to be competitive in ranking.
So now there’s even less of a chance of getting an off focus high end like Ice Mario
It’s better than just having Metal Mario, Dry Bowser, and Peachette though.
Actually, it means that karts and gliders will no longer get tier boosts from tours. While it wasn't immediately obvious, karts and gliders did receive those kinds of boosts before, just like drivers do. For example, during a Luigi Tour, the Poltergust 4000 would get boosted a tier like Luigi would get boosted a tier.
I love that all the updates and changes clearly don't benefit the player. At least they went back on changing the challenge reward to a quick ticket.Actually, it means that karts and gliders will no longer get tier boosts from tours.

In the end, it's an overall net negative for us since it means karts and gliders that are tier 2 for certain courses will now always be tier 2 for those courses, instead of being boosted to tier 3 every now and then.
Yeah, I was to the point where I didn’t even attempt to compete last week, and without those ranked rubies there is even less motivation to do anything. I might just derp around but I don’t see myself investing energy moving forward unless there are sweeping changes which most likely will not occurYeah, this tour seems like the final nail in the coffin for a lot of players if the reddit is anything to go by. I could barely afford to care enough last tour to do more than just grind out the daily exp bonus since the cups were getting far too competitive without paying up anything and this weeks one just decided to drop all subtly of the fact.
