I'm done with this game. I just came from a room where 8 people were hopping all over the track like fucking bunnies.
I shouldn't have bought the game for full price.
It sounds like you just need to learn to play better. If you are playing Mario Kart and not hopping at all, you are doing it wrong. Deal with the losses, play through the grand prix modes, and just get better at the game. It'll be worth it in the end, believe me.
