    I've been seeing a growing number of pairs of identical players in online lobbies - same names and Miis and everything except score. What's that all about? Is it some exploit I'm not aware of? I thought it might be one player somehow using a controller to play on two machines like the old MMO multiboxers, but I can't for the life of me figure out what advantage that would give anyone. Very strange.

    2 player split screen is a thing online.

    @Saul_Iscariot You could, I was answering Zyrr's question about two identical Miis with identical player names showing up online.

    @Thingy Ah, of course! I feel a bit daft now as that never even occurred to me. Thanks for the info :)

    I should finally be able to get online this evening. Have just moved house and so short of mobile-hotspotting, my online playtime on Switch has been limited since MK8D launched.

    Prepare to face-off against a decidedly average MK8 player soon!

    Any advice for the best Kart combination on the Mirror tracks? I've done all the 150cc races but son of a bitch I can't get all 4 races in the special cup. Always seem to get rubber banded to fuck on Bowser's Castle and Rainbow Road in particular. Pipe frame and off road wheels have done the best so far.

    Haven't been able to connect for a week. DNS issues?

    @Mfolf try fully powering down the Switch. I had problems connecting to the eshop last night and had to do that.

    Utter bliss.

    What do people do with their banana skins? I just chuck them straight away but wondered if there's a way to be more tactical.

    Also, fuck that squid and his ink, seem to get that at least three times in a race. Annoying as shit.

    Never waste them. Like shells they make for great defense if you hold them behind your kart. I also block double item boxes from other players with them.

    Has anyone else had issues with the karts steering to one side without any input? I had a whole Grand Prix this evening where the kart was always trying to turn left when I let go of the sick. Another race my kart would randomly steer left or right. Calibration seemed ok in the settings. I have a feeling my pro controller may be fucked

    I'll try it on Zelda tomorrow.

    Oh, I wasn't using auto steering either.

    Can you still jump 'nana skins? I've not actually tried, my vague memory of it is that they removed that some games ago.

    @Thingy Some good races there tonight! There was one particular race in which I was fortunate enough to have 4 red shells to waste on you, only then to accidentally fire off a green shell, which was my only defence at the time! D'oh.

    We each seem to have a few tracks we're faster on than the other, and a few were there's practically nothing in it at all. There were a few races in which we were miles ahead of anybody else. Good times!

    @Derblington I don't think so, though you can jump over oil spills with a well timed jump!

    @Derblington not sure but banana behaviour has certainly changed - you used to be able to brake in time to prevent spinning.

    Had my first mirror race online yesterday.
    They're a thing! Quite good fun as no one was quite sure of it. Came a cool 1st place too. Hence why I enjoyed it haha

    I had my first online 200cc race.

    I'm assuming it picks up on what people have completed in single player?

    200cc in online races is a very cruel joke.

    I just got 3 stars on all trophies at 150cc :D

    Just think, in years gone by, that would have been the end of it.

    Do you need to 3 star the races in 200cc to unlock the character? I keep messing up 1 race from 4.

    Had a little play this eve. Managed 2 stars on the bell cup 150cc, screwed over by slip stream on last corner of race 3 hence no 3 stars.

    Went online for 4 races and came 1st, 1st, 7th and 1st! Now am on over 1200 points.
