Jesus Christ as long there can be 3-4 warp orbs chasing me at once I'm going to want all the defensive Items I can get...

Doesn’t matter when you can out race the orbs

1st place should definitely get zero masks

I think shield should be rarer but still available

Shields, yes, masks, no. Masks just feel cheap

IMO...

1st-3rd place should only get explosive crates, beakers, bowling bombs, and the power shield.

4th-6th place should get missiles, turbos, shields, and masks.

7th & 8th place should only get turbos, masks, warp orbs, and the clock.

So basically, each racer will get one of 4 items depending on their placement, and there’s a 25% chance for each item.

Anyone else noticed they use the "Shortcut" to catch up with you as well?

Even if you did already long pass it, it seems the game remembers so the orb does it's best to catch you there.

Back with the glitched thunderstruck shortcut, back at wumpa time with friends. A guy used a warp orb on me, and it used the glitched shortcut.

I'm mostly being facetious about the masks. But shield items should be more common or the amount of warp orbs should be reduced. I've had enough of having to "outrace" 3+ warp orbs at the start of lap 2 in relatively short levels with no USF pads.

Agree with this. 1st place should mainly get traps, occasional defence bubble. Not even boosts should be given I think.

Second to 4th place should get more maks and boosters, not a lot but enough to catch up atleast.
