How are you guys and gals doing in this ranked cup so far? I'm in 1st at the moment with 27,066. 2nd is 23,049. I only tried these courses a few times and haven't even tried to improve Tokyo since my first completion. I think I had a couple frenzies on Mario Circuit and Yoshi Circuit and have 10k on both of those courses.
I'm at 15.7k right now in 4th place in tier 7. I won the first week, didn't place the second and won the third. In this one, I'm pretty sure I could overtake 3rd, who's only ahead by 1k but don't think I can catch 1st and 2nd. However, not sure if I actually want to overtake 3rd. That would put me in tier 10 ahead at the end. It might be worth hanging back where I am now and going to tier 9 instead. There I would be "off cycle" and at least face people who've not come in top 3 some weeks. Then if I come in 1st that week, I'll go up three tiers to tier 12 and again face people who've not been top 3 before.
Not sure if this is actually the best strategy but sacrificing a few gems and coins now could pay off in the end.

I'm barely ahead by around 150 points. I'm just a bit over 20k. Third place and below are under 20k. I'm just glad the rest of the players in my rank aren't as good as most of you with your crazy high scores XD My Tokio Blur score is around 5.2k and there has been no way for me to improve it.
