This dude and his partner were throwing bombs, stars, purple shells and all sorts of other items out of thin air throughout the race. They even had the items at the very beginning of the race.

Both of these cheaters got first and second place in every single race. I'm not even going to bother with online play any longer when there is cheating like this.

I thought that the cheaters stayed on MKWii and MK7, but then a couple days ago I ran into a lobby with a FTL hacker in MK8. Endless Bob-Ombs, Green Shells and Blue Shells and even Mushrooms were scattered around the racetrack...It was a crazy couple of races until I left.

You ran into FTW (For the Win) hackers though, who are a lot dirtier than FTL hackers because they used their cheating to hold the top two spots in the race instead of just messing with everyone else for fun.

The hackers have been infesting the game for a while now. 2016 was the last good year for online play in the game. The only way to get away from them at this point is to get a Switch and Deluxe.

It should be noted that the hacking is still not as severe as it was in MK Wii. I'll often go through 20-30 lobbies before I finally come across one of these douchebags. As soon as I see one, I immediately exit the race. I don't even care if it hurts my VR. Too old to deal with that BS.
