Prinny is a dark wizard. The last time we played head to head he got nothing but stars and lucky 7s. I thought I was going to lose my mind :(

So I had a conversation about MK7 with my friends recently. They said that the game mechanics are flawed, because now each race is all based on luck. They said they should put snaking back into Mario Kart. Personally while I had fun playing MKDS in the past, I did not find snaking make the game more enjoyable. I did not use it much due to fear of damaging my dpad. What are your thoughts?

If all racers are equal skill then items will determine the winner and even that balances out if you play enough cups. Every item is defendable and I really haven't found that they help low level players beat high level players. Just the fact that you can get mushrooms while in first fairly often makes the game a lot more balanced than MKWii.

Whatever. If you actually raced all the time instead of playing around so much I would never beat you and we both know that :P

I agree. I'm ~4200 VR, and whenever I see a 12000+VR player come along he finishes 1st most of the time. Would you guys want snaking to return though?

I thought snaking is in MK7 but it's just nerfed so it's not as overpowered as in MKDS. That was the issue that most people had with it before was that it just overwhelmed every other strategy.

Ah yes, you're correct. Are there actual strategies for this game that requires skill, other than drfiting, shortcuts, etc?

Aside from shortcuts the tracks have different surfaces that play into strategies. There's know when and where to use certain items and the gliders bring in a whole new way to approach some of the tracks too. If snaking existed just like in MKDS no one would both with any of that stuff.

Edit: How could I forget about the coins. People love's beating them out of you which is another great strategy.

Coins are the most notable skill-based addition other than drifting and shortcuts, but knowing how and when to drift, how and when to use items, and how and when to take shortcuts is still the bread and butter of Mario Kart 7.

I'm getting used to them now, it's pretty much all you see once you get into the 3500-4000 VR range.

I need to do something about my defense though, one item hit and I go from 1st or 2nd to last. I just can't get the timing on the recovery boost even after all this time (and all those hits).
