    Alright, so I head into a Worldwide match. Start going around the course and this one person stops. I thought it was odd and was expecting them to get disconnected due to lack of activity. Well, it turns out this person was waiting for the rest to get to that area. The moment I get there and go to pass the person uses a bullet bill, trying to hit me obviously. It missed and I finished the race without more of this, but the next race the same thing happens. As soon as I pass, this time he uses the mega mushroom(or whatever it's call. the one that makes you large, from NSMB) and then proceeds to try and run me over. He fails again, miserably. This continued for the next few races until they quit.

    So obviously this pair's plan of attack is to go in and the guest hinders the leaders so that the other does well for more points. First time I seen this going on personally, but I should have expected as much. So, just something to watch out for when you are playing.

    Discuss.

    Dunno the name of the main cause he was never in front of me. But the guest was Naruto. They were from Japan, and both characters had their glasses on the top of their head on their Miis.

    Fucking lamers... That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard of. Some people really need to stop taking their games so seriously, seriously.

    The freewebdictionary defines game as "An activity providing entertainment or amusement." Games are for having fun lamers...

    We should invite friend to counter their attacks.

    You and the cheater making the race, and your friend and friend's cheater trying to kill themselves.


    Two games in one.

    It was a bad idea to make guests unaccountable with no score imo. Even if they started each session with 5000 it would of been something.

    Guests, should absolutely be accountable for points, as i've seen a fair few matches online, where "wingman" are sitting on blue shells and so on, so their mate can safely finish first, or steal first.

    Making them accountable for points would stop this completely.

    Or just set it up so if they fall more than 1.5 laps behind or dont move for a lap they automatically get kicked form that race

    I've just experienced this first hand now two red shells in a row from the second placed guy and a blue shell from his dawdling guest. I so nearly recovered, but 2nd was the best I could do.

    They both had a [G] tag for ghey perhaps?

    I think I'm going to compile a list of the most difficult tracks to play split screen and vote for those each round if I see this sort of thing again.

    It's a shame really. I'd like for it to do that. I wanted to have it so that when my wife plays with me that she'd have a score too, but she can't despite also having a license on the Wii and picking the same Mii. Kinda sucks...

    Well I encountered this kind of thing one day...it turned out that I got the upperhand. I had a fun time "teaching those lot a lesson"

    1) Me and the other 11 random players raced in Moonview Highway. We started the race except one, who tried to do the Finish Line trick (not sure what it's called, but it's like you win by advancing then making a U-turn and staying in the finish line until the race ends and you end up in first place)... Well, that guy's plan got backfired (I think) because when I was about to make my second lap (I was in first place), I bumped onto him and the race mysteriously ended...I won it and he's second.

    2) I call this my best MKWii WFC moment so far.

    Place: Maple Treeway

    Same situation as Spikey (just waited at the finishing line). When I made my second lap, he hit me with 3 red shells . He nearly got me cornered but I intentionally fell on a cliff. When I got back on land, I showed him ruthlessness.

    I went to get a box and here we go, STARMAN! He was staying in one spot and he didn't know I got a star. I then used it and bashed him from the back then I reversed back to him. I did it until the star power ran out. It was fun seeing him jumping to the groove.

    His name was "titi" from France.

    Do all of you hate wingmen using 'legitimate' team strategies as well? When I race as a guest on my machine I never use attacks against my wingman, always inform him/her of 'universal' attacks and attempt to time them to our benefit, and always wait at the finish line if I'm ahead to maximize/minimize their VR point gain/loss. That's just smart team racing isn't it?
