Hi again.

Has anyone encounter with MarioKingR? He has more than 10000wins and 0Losses. Today I encountered him. And in the last race I was winning and even had 3 mushrooms and use it to win, but when I cross the finish line it said that I got second! What the...? Is that even possible? How can he do that?

What Deathly said, that sounds pretty much like a hacker.

But thank you for the heads up about him.

Not hacking. I'll explain

First things first, he/she does NOT have 0 losses. Obviously an abuser of the delete losses glitch. I won't go into detail since I don't want anyone else abusing it. No hacks there.

Second, I know exactly how could he do that. A couple of months ago I had a race with an Nsider. I remember the track being DK Pass. I was smokin the guy as well as another guy. Once I crossed the finish line, the Nsider in third suddenly reached first place, while I had second place even though it looked like like I was winning by a longshot. He D/Ced on the next race and I found out that his connection was pretty bad, which caused him to lag pretty bad as well. The whole time he was in front of me, but I didn't know because he was laggin too much. His bad connection was also the reason why he D/Ced.

My point? No use of hacking whatsoever. Just a bad case of lag.

Well, I might as well finish.

Having an awesome record is very possible in this game. I myself have a record of 1159 wins and 139 losses. I really don't find a lot of good challengers in this game even on Rivals. Most of them come from chumps that can't even mini-turbo a corner, some thing I do in all of them. Of course I know a couple of other tricks, like which shortcuts can be mini-turboed (For example, if you're using a light vehicle you can mini-turbo the jump in GCN Yoshi Circuit.). And of course, snaking when I MUST and only when I must snake.

I dunno, cosmic Lag action? I've seen people drive off the course only to appear in front of me later.
Must have been Lag
