  3. Where are all the blue shells :( ?

In previous games; I just loved pounding say a first place player with a blue shell making them place 5 or 6th or something in the process LOL but I just can't seem to get some more of those in this game.

I picked up the blue turtle once or twice per 3 or 4 battles and that's not much fun. Is there something wrong with my game :( ?

Blue shells should really be only something 4th-6th get as its an item that is only really going to help them. Someone in 8th or lower really should be getting a Star, Golden Shroom, Bullet Bill or best of all, Lightning. Blue shells don't help someone in a bad place go any faster and catch up to the pack...

That said, I despise blue shells.

Those stuffs that Honorable mentioned are actually uncommon and very much less timing to appearing. I barely able to get Star in this game, while I did in MKWii recently, twice.

It's just rare that's all, people WERE complaining about it in the last couple of games, so they actually turned the frequency down this time.

Superhorns are also a somewhat rare sight as well as the Fire Flower, I don't think I barely gotten the Fire Flower at all.

Yeah, I just wish they reduce the frequency of Lightning as well - I kept got struck by it at least once per track, not cup...

Blue just come out each four tracks I raced in and bombed me all way to hell and hooked back to the track.

Nintendo nerfed the blue shells because of babby's whining all the time not understanding how balancing it was.

Those shells were balancing? I thought all they did was nerf a leading player though I guess that is pretty balancing.

That's not balancing at all. That's penalizing a player for being better. I can't believe you're actually whining that you don't see them as often now.

Apparently wondering = whining. LOL
