Specifically from Quick, Daily, or Weekly Challenges.

I really despise "Passive Rider" since it always takes forever to get the Track the Challenge is tethered to in Online Mode.

And with the Online Mode being pretty unstable at times, it's especially infuriating when the Track needed appears, the race is about to start, and you get kicked back to the lobby.

For the dailies, Passive Rider is definitely the worst. Even if you get the track, you'd better pray the host isn't an ass and disconnects or people actually vote for it.

And for the weekly's, all the battle mode challenges.

I don't really have a problem with the Battle Mode Challenges that you can do offline, though I avoid any that have to be done online. For example, one of the Weekly ones, "N. Sane Hat Trick," was knocked out in less than 5 minutes or so.

It's made easier because of the Joy Cons, so I can knock it out quickly. I'm not very competitive, so I only do Online Challenges that don't really require a lot of effort like Multi-Hits or Online Racer.

Passive Rider in its current form is awful. I play on PS4 and it is just as much of a headache to clear on that console.

Though I find the "hit crates with power-ups" one or whatever even more ridiculous because it is a boring ass grind, in the end it is much less luck-based than Passive Rider; you will get it eventually if you just play the game. I just don't like how "playing the game" gets you the challenge [actually doing a race vs. mindlessly throwing power-ups until you get ones that can hit boxes].

Anything online. Every time I try to join a lobby everyone quits.

It's because of that Passive Rider challenge, super f***ing annoying.

Passive Rider wouldn't be nearly as annoying if they made the Track tethered to it appear more often instead of once in a blue moon.

I have a feeling they do it on purpose to keep people locked in on the Online Mode. For example, on Thursday, the tethered Track was Prehistoric Playground.

It took me an hour to get it, yet Wednesday, I kept seeing it appear almost every other match.
