was playing mkw right now, I was challenging the cpus and I was crushing the a.i. (was far ahead as any mkw players would be against the cpus).

And then this happened..

-blue shell
-shock
-red shell

As I was slowly moving forward (at this point I had no items to protect my self obviously)

-another blur shell
-gues what? Another blue shell (two at the same time really?)

They almost all catched up

-another red shell comes
-and then another
-and then another
-green shell from the front
-bomb
-starman

At this point I almost lost it.

Does this happen to you guys?

Of course it happens, it's Mario Kart and it's always been like this.

You can't win 'em all, no use complaining about it.

Well at least MK7 fixed the blue shell spam issue, at most you would only see 1 per lap.

That said, the CPUs are highly predictable, just learn their usual pattern and don't be afraid to sandbag for a power item if you can't get miles ahead of them. And always be prepared for a red shell to follow a blue shell, it happens nearly every time.

So you got hit with two blue shells at the same time?

Even though that's literally impossible for the AI to do.

Quitting after failure never leads to success.

Not really they came one after another, hit first, moved for less than 5sec and then another one came. This shouldn't be possible to begin with.

This. Mario Kart sucks at item balance.

As for the part about sandbagging, that doesn't work if you're trying to achieve 3 stars. Wasting time outside of 1st reduces your ranking. Other than that, it does work, but not for getting a higher rank.

I really hope they do away with the blooper item. It's just annoying.

I'm more concerned about the awful Thunder Cloud. The longer that stupid thing stays in the recycling bin, the better.

But yes, the Blooper does kind of suck.
