You don't care about winning? Why bother to play a racing game if you don't wanna come in first?
The reason why he might still be playing this game is not because he's a competitive racer that wants to win, but rather, it might be that he likes to create new mods/karts/tracks in this game.
I realize this. Sorry, sarcasm and internet don't mix well.
My point being that this was supposed to be a racing game and creation game in equal parts. While I feel ufg messed them both up, it's my opinion that the online racing is the part that was messed up the most. The ppl that are big into the creation side that refuse to see the problems that the ppl that want to race are having is more frustrating to me than ufg's inability to fix the problems in the first place.
What UFG has done is put a glorified BETA on sale for €50, I'd say The retailers are getting more money for the barely touched pre-owned games

Yeah I may be shelving this one for a while if not for good... I have gotten platinum... and there is nothing more to really do... dont want to mindlessly race xp races... casuals would be nice if so many of the tracks weren't crappy and undrivable... Not to mention the constant problems with the game itself... I stuck through the glitchiness while there was still something to do and achieve, but now there is nothing less... UFG will have to fix a lot of problems and pull the perverbial "rabbit out of their rectum (with some new dlc other than preorder mods and karts)" to draw me back and get me interested... figure out how to showcase "good" tracks, give me new tracks, new online modes, better creation tools, or something to freshen it up for me otherwise it may just be goodbye for good... I will keep checking here and popping in once and a while to see whats going on in the game.... but its not looking good for the home team right now....

As my 'ingame' profile shows, I'm retired as well. I've only logged in 2 times last 3 months, and those times were both to receive trophies. (Once for 250 000 Create XP and once for Level 30 and Platinum). Now the only reason for me to play is to get myself as high as I can on the skill rating leaderboard. But seeing as the leaderboard is glitched, that isn't very fun either. Right now I'm top 50 in the world even with the glitchers, but Seeing how I'll always have several glitchers ahead of me, I've stopped caring.
Anyways I've gotten more than 100 hours out of this sweet game, so I'm more than happy, and seeing as I've got several unopened games in my room, I'll probably not come back to this game until DLC with trophies is released seeing as I'm a trophy *****

I've played this game for months. It helps that I've been fortunate to race with a solid gang of misfits that are patient enough to withstand dodgy servers, mediocre track building content and seemingly no interest by the company to resolve these issues. There's alot of potential with this game, but they need to listen to thier community (but definitely not Harbinger and fuzzyclutter) on how to improve the Online experience.
In other news...
The Modnations' numbers are taking a nosedive. More Elite's are falling by the wayside and retiring daily.
The official Modnation website is half-functioning(at best).
Casual races are the new modspot...cuz who wants to go into the actual modspot and get solicited by 10 year olds and full-grown adults chriping "download for download"???
And that is all..for now.
