Just tried looking for people online, didn't see a single soul in the group :( So I just played against people across different countries since I couldn't find people who added me.
I haven't added you yet cause I haven't been home. It won't be for another few hours I add you. Please be patient young pad won. :msilly:

Ignore this. The unlock system is random.
I was about to say you needed to finish every 150cc cup with gold, cause that's when I unlocked it.

So far I don't feel like any of these unlockable characters are worth unlocking at all. I'm still waiting for Ludwig to unlock, though.

And does anyone know if Dry-Bones is in this game? He'd be my main man if he is. Otherwise I'm sticking with Yoshi.

Then maybe I'm missing something, when I go to Friends in the MK 8 Online Mode, I see the list of people who are friends, but then what? Send a message, go click on "Start Game"? Clearly I'm missing something here as I can't join any games unless it's random people. I create a room, nothing. The way you join friends is convoluted and confusing...it's unclear to me. What's the process in joining people I know?

Waste of slots imo: Baby Daisy, Baby Rosalina, Metal Mario, Pink Gold Peach

Who shoulda been in: Bowser Jr, Diddy Kong, Dry Bones, hell even Funky Kong and ROB.
...no...just no...while I'd have liked Dry Bones, I can't STAND the other ones...and, therefore, as a mod, I have to take action...

I'm going to jump in shortly to see who's online, but I won't start broadcasting until about 8PM CST. But if anyone's around to play now I'll probably start in about 10 mins.

Bugger, guess I'll never be able to join up with friends online, from the looks of it anyways. Did I ask the wrong questions about how to actually join a match with friends? I mean so far, I've had rotten luck, all I've gotten were random matches with random people and not people I know. This is FAR more annoying than it should be.

Edit: I never can seem to collab with people, and when they do, I'm busy with something else and/or gone. Rotten luck.
 
I swear you just join a room a friend has made, that's how it worked in MKWii anyway. Someone help randomizer out.

Looks like I won't catch the stream, but Juegs I ask of you to save it! I'll watch it at a later point.

From what I understand, you go to "Online - 1 player", then "Friends", then from your list of friends you can see who's currently in a room or race. I believe the ones in a room or race have a little flag icon next to their name. You select them, and there's an option to join their game.

I'm creating a room right now, anyone who wants to start playing please join me. I won't start broadcasting yet, I'll wait until 8PM CST or so.

Nice to get a few races in with you @juegosmajicos :) it's late here and everyone else is asleep so I had to call it there unfortunately (and turn off voice chat). Out of curiosity is the voice chat only in the lobby or is it in-game as well?
 
I'm not a fan of how it uses your personal name. So instead of CitizenOfVerona, it's Ryan. I don't know who anyone is :(

Also noticing weird visual lag (?). I see Jueg get a box, but the box is still there. Or he's on one path and then suddenly teleport to another. Weird

PLEASE UNDERSTAND....
I've actually never used Skype before.... Though I may start now when I get my MK8.... Menashe was awesome enough to send it off to me today.... I can't wait to participate....
 
Downloaded the game and got a little taste during lunch but not gonna be able to really jump into the game until tomorrow afternoon. My Wii U is just sitting there w/ MK8 taunting me.

isn't using that sucky pickaxe
It punted me earlier. Which is okay because I'm almost certain my gamepad needs to be recharged.

I tried to switch to the pro controller, but it wouldn't respond.
