How can i love and hate this game at the same time? Yeah... i was going to say that Trish joined in 2. I was also going to ask what the hell is with maku? What is this cheat? that would explain a lot as to why i was in 3rd then in 8th in seconds.. Arg. Worldwide ended up as a NW meetup :) good races overall. S
@Smerd Yeah, there's a glitch that skips over the entirety of the second section. Ridiculous stuff. Trish didn't think she'd pull it off and when she did, she felt bad and stopped racing. It was sort of funny.
Is Nintendo doing something about the Maku Wuhu exploit? I only ask because....
... I was racing last night and the track came up the random draw. I went ahead and used the glitch because I was racing against a bunch of randoms who were all voting for the track (gee I wonder why), and I saw them use the trick before me. So I said "eff those guys" and went for it myself.
I finished in like 2nd or 3rd, but then? I got kicked offlline. There was a "communication error" or something. Later, the track came up again, and I saw a guy use the glitch. I didn't this time, and I wasn't kicked offline at the end of the race. The guy that DID use the glitch? Mysteriously disappeared.
That didn't happen in the three races I played last night. The guy from Japan won Maka Wuhu easily (though the rest of NW in that race came in 2-6, so rock on NW) and was in the next two races with us. He lost both of them.
That would be awesome if people who use the glitch get a communication error. I feel that it's possible to implement on the server side -- for example, you get booted if your time is too low, meaning that you must have used the glitch.
