Default Mario Kart Wii

So... how many people seem to ALWAYS get the biggest "WTFOMGFUCKINGDIE!" moments in this game?

Example... 150cc, I'm Bowser, Mushroom Gorge. 1st place the entire race on my bike, last lap, right before the last jump... I get hit with a blue shell as I hit the jump, I land, I hit the jump, Lightning bolt, fell down, get up, hit by a Mega Mushroomed Princess, re-size, hit the jump, hit by a passing bullet bill... 1st to Last with no hope of recovery in about 5 seconds.

And how the hell does one get a Star ranking? I always seem to get A and B on the courses and normally I'm always first place.

I made a thread for MKW a week or 2 ago, but anyway, just winning isn't enough, for a Star ranking you gotta rank 1st at the end of a cup, AND have very good times in all 4 courses.
Some tips, though most are obvious:
- Perfect your drifting tactics to get the most out of your turbos
- Learn to know the tracks, and use the hidden shortcuts whenever possible
- Pray the enemy doesn't shoot blue shells your way
- Try to keep a banana or a shell handy whenever possible, they will absorb incoming red shells when you drag them behind you.
- When driving a bike, use wheelies whenever possible
- Do stunts at any and all jumps

That shell has, and always will be, the bane of all humanity.

Winning should be enough given how as soon as you hit 1st expect to be hit by a blue shell no less then 10 times...

Best advice I can give when you've got a blue shell coming your way is to either:
- Slow down to let the others catch up, the blast radius will send them flying as well.
- Or better, if the 2nd placer is like right on your tail, stop, let him take 1st place and get some distance from you, reclaim 1st place after he gets nuked.

'Tis why it's hard to take Mario Kart seriously anymore.

I seem to do very well with the bikes. A lot more so then the Karts. Probably because I don't need to rely on the drift/turbo boosts to like you do on the karts. (2 starts on each 50cc cup so far... save the one with Rainbow Road)

Helps I also use Boo so I can still kick people out of my way. (I just love the Boos)

Just wish each character had a unique item like they did in Double Dash.

Noticed the same thing...soon as I grabbed a bike, all my scores went up. However, that can also be granted considering popping a wheelie when you can increases your overall top speed.

Also I give mad props to people who use the Mach Rider motorcycle. That thing turns on a dime for me and is darn tricky to drift with.

Yeah, I noticed that too so I generally just stick with the standard bike. I tried using Peach, love the outfit she wears on the bikes, and using it but I had far to much trouble with drifting.

I guess I'll stick to King Boo and his Wario Bike.
