    It's kinda tedious that this is a thing now because 100cc is really slow for online races and keeps on dragging on for too long.

    I'm now on the 2k rank and yet the system still tends to choose 100cc over 150cc. You can see when it's 100cc or 150cc as the stage is selected. I'd guess that 150cc becomes the official racing speed by 5k.

    100cc is slow, 150cc is normal (somewhat fast) and then there's 200cc which is fast. I tried 200cc and really liked it but takes a lot of precision and effort to get it right, I did 100% all 200cc cups though. :)

    Ah, so that's what the 100 that I see pop up sometimes means

    I'm on 2200+ rank and all matches from now on have gamers with similar ranks and 150cc-only so turns out it doesn't take too long to reach 150cc matches.

    Sounds like it's based on the room average. I wish it was straight 150 all the time honestly, or the custom search function was still there so we could always do 200cc.

    hang on, does that mean we're being ranked then segregated by that rank? Like in salty games like LoL?

    Holy hell how did you manage that? I can't play a race in 200cc without falling off or banging into walls on turns and I'd say Im pretty good at MK. Too fast lol

    I didn't find it too hard after a while, I just needed to press B at certain times to slow down and then it'd boost up at the same time. Honestly, it feels like 200cc in MK8D was made somewhat easier than the original WiiU version.
