Mario Kart 8 DLC Pack 2 - Survivor Poll - Final Round (Vote for your LEAST fav) [poll]
 
Crossing Cup - Wild Woods (11/12 votes)
 92%
Bell Cup - Ribbon Road (1/12 vote)
 8%
 
Mario Kart's second DLC pack has released finally and with it come eight awesome courses. I wanted to gauge the interest and appreciation of these various courses around here so I thought I would put on a Survivor Poll to determine the proper order of things. For more discussion on Mario Kart 8, visit it's Discussion Thread.

For those interested in participating (and why not? it's very little effort), just post IN BOLD the track you find the least appealing of the set. The bold votes will hold more weight over the actual poll voting to prevent any kind of tom-foolery (or Tom Nook-foolery perhaps). To go the extra mile, tell us why, or if your favorite is losing the poll(s) then tell us why we're wrong!

Have a go at the courses. Have a vote. But most of all have fun!

This phase of the final chapter of the Survival Poll is live until Thursday, May 14th, @ 9:59 PM EST.

Unlike in other Survival polls, in this last round please STILL vote for the LEAST favorite of the remaining options and post in BOLD your choice below.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

3rd Place:
Bell Cup - Big Blue


4th Place:
Crossing Cup - Animal Crossing


5th Place:
Bell Cup - Super Bell Subway


6th Place:
Bell Cup - Neo Bowser City


7th Place:
Crossing Cup - Cheese Land


8th Place:
Crossing Cup - Baby Park


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It was quite a photo finish for the blazing Big Blue but alas it made its way out and Wild Woods stayed in. Does this mean we have a clear winner already? Perhaps or perhaps not. With Big Blue out of the way only two courses remain; the Crossing Cup's Wild Woods and the Bell Cup's Ribbon Road. The former is a fun and creative romp through a small community living around a giant tree while the other is a masterfully imagined re-make of a level found on the Game Boy Advance version of Mario Kart.

Again, please STILL vote for the LEAST favorite of the remaining options and post in BOLD your choice below.

Crossing Cup - Wild Woods

That's a tough one but I think I'll have to go with this. I love it due to it working well with 200cc and the sense of speed is really great... but Ribbon Road is pretty fantastic and the overall look of it is just great.

Crossing Cup - Wild Woods is too wild to stay the course.

Ribbon Road is a masterpiece.

I really like Wild Woods, but Ribbon Road is too perfect.

Crossing Cup - Wild Woods gets my vote. It's a fun, whimsical track, and I like it's airy theme music. Unfortunately, it's not my favorite course from the new DLC pack.

That honor goes to Ribbon Road. Nintendo did an awesome job remastering some of Super Circuit's courses by preserving their unique aesthetics while going the extra mile in upping their overall complexity. This redesign effort is very appealing to me, and it's just a great track to race on.

Wild Woods. Could have voted for either track really, and I tend to prefer nature themed stages, but when it comes to racetrack layout and design Ribbon Road is the more accomplished of the two.

It's kind of amazing to see Crossing Cup - Wild Woods nabbing so many votes. Is it that clear-cut of a decision between the two?

@Octorockin

Well said!

Wild Woods. It's an excellent track...one of my favorites in the new pack (and possibly overall), but Ribbon Road oozes with charm, and it's just a more fun track to race on.

Well something tells me I could end this poll early... lol

Booooo!

I'd rather have a new track win than a retro track, but I guess there's no stopping Ribbon Road.

That said, it does make me want a new Micro Machines game...

Ribbon Road is barely a retro track though. So much of it is new.
Posted: 05/14/15, 23:38:18
@Zero

Indeed. It's retro only in vague left-right turn order and general idea but there's so much NEW in it that it really is a new track.
