At which speed do you play when you first get a new Mario Kart game? I always start at 50cc and work my way up.

I always start at 50cc to get a feel for the tracks.

100cc. Get a feel for the tracks on a "normal" difficulty. Then 150cc all the way.

150cc. I leave 50 and 100 for my wife to play through.

50cc, gotta play in order.

Cripes, 50, of course. I've seen like 4 of these tracks. Gotta learn 'em, get the lay of the land, etc.
Thats cool that you can 3 star the 100cc and it fills in any 50's you might've missed.

Getting screwed at the last second is a great thing about Mario Kart.....for me to poop on.

I started from 150cc this time around and I can confirm that you are correct. I have one star in 150cc mushroom and three star in 50cc mushroom.

@Abdooooo

..Alright, I think we're all confused, or I am.

I got 2 Stars on 50cc Flower Cup, or something. I was going to play the 100cc's and then go back to do the 50cc Flower after that. I 3 Star'd the 100cc Flower, and then when I went to pick 50cc Flower..I magically had 3 Stars. "Did I 3 Star it the first time? Is this my imagination?" No matter, I still had the last top row (Lightning?) that I only 2 Star'd on 50cc. Proceeded in the same manner again for the 100cc, and when I went to pick 50cc, I had 3 Stars there again after 3 Star'ing the 100cc one. Wow!

So yeah. I don't know what the correct verbiage is. My definition, that IS Stars "carrying down."

50cc co-op to unlock content. 150 to play the real game

Stars might only carry down if you achieve a 3 star score. Otherwise I don't think they do.
Posted: 06/03/14, 20:10:43
I'd love to never have to play 50 or 100 in my life, but unfortunately Nintendo forces you to play through all of them. I honestly forget how I do it. Probably start at 150 and then go back when I've had my fun and am ready to do the boring grind.

@Zero Except in Mario Kart VIII, where you never have to play 50cc and 100cc at all.

@Zero

You don't need to in this one!

They carry down regardless. I did four cups on 150cc that I didn't play otherwise and my one star scores carried down. They won't replace a higher score. For example, if you scored two stars on the 100cc Mushroom Cup and then scored one star on the 150cc Mushroom Cup, your 100cc score would still hold for 100cc and 50cc.

@DrFinkelstein

Yeah, like Ludist said, I 1 Star'd Flower 150 and my Flower 100 now has 1 Star.

Shy Guy Falls HATES me.

@Zero

This doesn't make any sense.. Why must you readily avoid common sense? Its like you eat dinner, "Ice Cream Sundae -> Steak -> Salad." Nobody does that.
Posted: 06/04/14, 00:13:02
@Mr_Mustache It makes perfect sense, because I want to actually enjoy a game during my initial play, not slog through a bunch of stuff that I don't care about. If I have to grind, I'm sure as F not doing it day one.

But it sounds like they fixed it anyway.

@Zero

Why is 50cc/100cc not enjoyable? You're still playing Mario Kart 8.
Posted: 06/04/14, 00:38:49
@Mr_Mustache

It's slow. To me, it's not as much fun. I get why Zero feels that way. I just use 100cc as a warm-up to learn the nuances of the tracks. 150cc feels like the real deal.

To be more precise, 50cc is molasses slow. It's so boring. 100cc isn't horrible, but it's still too slow. 150cc is perfect. No interest in playing anything else.
