Tier List Criteria

Special Skill and Courses

This tier list focuses on glider's special skill and amount of favored courses. Gliders' stats are linked tp their special skill and favored courses, unlike their counterpart from the console games which has other stats tied to them such as Speed, Handling, etc. Certain Skills like Lightning Plus and Coin Plus are more useful for increasing your total score, while something like Green Shell Plus is a bit harder to use effectively. Gliders of higher rarity also have higher base points in addition to more favored courses, and thus they rank higher.

Where do the numbers of favored courses come from? Is it the number from when the item was first released? I would think that the Tropical Glider’s current 17 favored courses make it much more valuable than the 9 listed. Anything I can do to help you guys get this list updated?

51 Platinum Karts !!! This really goes to show Nintendo cares nothing about game play and track creation. All they want to do is constantly dangle new drivers, karts, and gliders with each tour to get players to spend $! EVERY PULL OF THE PIPE SHOULD PROVIDE A NEEDED ITEM! With rubies so $$ and difficult to collect, premium items buried in the last 10 to 20 of the pipe, it’s BS. Everywhere you look in game is BUY, BUY, BYE 👋
