Okay, I know damn well this is false.

1.) I've gotten unlocks from playing VS mode midpoint and stopping, and the game gave me a notifier saying, "You unlocked such and such", so the point of you gaining nothing when you quit is false.

2.) When I first played the game, I got a part by the first GP I did in 100cc, so that's moot.


are you sure you havn't touched ANY other mode? no online/timetrial?


I've noticed these BEFORE I touched online. I know I'm not imagining this, and a number of other people seem to agree.

@Steven-Chase: I already Answered the reason He unlocked extra Karts, He was doing multiplayer Grand Prix. With 2 Players, 1 cup can give 80 coins, 3 > 120, and 4 > 160 with each cup being approx. 10 minutes long it would take no time at all to unlock the 10k coins cause you would be averaging 960 coins an hour however it has its difficulties Especially if you're triple star farming as well everybody will have a job to do

How it is done
one players will have to be to take first while all others focus on supporting and ko'ing any computers that come their way. The person whom is to take first should have the MAP and keep an eye out for Blue shells (and should know ALL MAPS BY HEART If all Persons are in the first 4 positions there is no need for attack only defense 1st(the person with the MAP) should take Point while all others stay somewhat close behind and defend from second thru 4th place as I have noticed it is harder to get Bananas and shells in 1st (5 times out of 8 in one race I HAD gotten COINS from the blocks in first) If a player should get a megahorn strategy revolves around the following 1st or 2nd(if playing 2 player use it to defend yourself) KEEP IT and ward off the blue shell if it should show, if 3rd or 4th Move up to 2nd and defend position. With this battle formation it should be easy to conquer multiplayer Grand Prix. just good luck with the small screen

@FFMaster1212: I dunno who "he" is because there's about 400 people in this thread saying the same thing, but... you seem to be arguing something that I'm not disagreeing with. I've acknowledged several times that coins count separately per human player, so if you have 4-player local multiplayer and each player collects 10 coins, you just brought home 40 in one race. More human players = multipliers.

I just started a new file, and I have gotten 45 coins so far without a part unlock via time trials. So therefore, it is safe to say that people have gotten more than 40 coins via their first grand prix. So are the coins you complete a race with counted? Or does completing/placing high in a Grand Prix get you extra coins?

@Pinxed:
Interesting. Start a new file again and complete a GP. Count your coins and see if you get an unlock. If possible, record it. #icommandyou

I'm unlocking new parts after every grand prix.. How can I get more than 50 coins in 4 races if the max is 10?
I think it's because I played mostly online races and you have to play single player to unlock them?
It's like I have a bunch of kart parts reserved from all the coins I collected online, and I keep having to do a grand prix to receive them one by one.

I have a feeling it'll be this reaction about every 3 posts until the topic dies.
If they don't read the posts, they won't see you telling them to read the posts.
I think you'll just have to ignore the ones who obviously haven't read the topic, and only deal with the ones who can have a proper discussion.

@KogaSteelfang:
You're probably right. It's just irritating. I have little patience for people who want to read a fraction of the information available to them before making a comment.

On another note...

I have a feeling the official player's guide for this game is going to clear this all up.

www.crashwiki.com/mario-kart-8-spoilers-found-leaked-guide-photos-shows-simplified-gameplay/

These photos go into great detail about the game's mechanics, far more than I ever expected... so I can't help but think that something would be outlined about how coins work. Amazon says the guide is available now, so I'm going to run by GameStop after work and see if they have it in stock.

This is incorrect for a simple reason.

Upon starting a new file, you can unlock the part for getting 50 coins after a single Grand Prix.


THIS

I am pretty sure I unlocked a car part by finishing my first grand prix, which menas I somehow got 50 coins in 4 races.


i also unlocked a new car part after MY FIRST grand prix so it was my first time playing


I can also attest to this. The very first Grand Prix I finished on Mario Kart 8 resulted in an unlocked character and part.
