Mario Kart Tour – Current Events

Issues

  • [Issues] A few more issues are currently impacting the game:
    • Sometimes the player level decreases by one if players return to the tour screen after advancing to the next player level. Players are able to obtain the level-up reward. Racing again to increase the gauge will increase player level again, but players cannot obtain the same level-up reward multiple times (added on May 15th)
    • An issue may occur that causes the base points of drivers, karts, and gliders that had reached the maximum value before Ver. 2.0.1 was released to appear to exceed the maximum value after updating to Ver. 2.1.0. If affected drivers, karts, or gliders are used in a race, the points will be shown as exceeding the maximum value after the race begins and until the finish line is reached. However, the points actually earned will be the maximum value. This issue also makes it possible to use point-boost tickets on the affected drivers, karts, and gliders despite the base points being maximised. If a point-boost ticket is used on an affected driver, kart, or glider, the base points shown will revert to the maximum amount and the ticket will be expended (added on May 20th)
    • The Pipe Frame kart may appear in place of level-boost tickets in the Daily Selects section of the Shop (added on May 20th)
