      i hate multiplayer 🤣😂🤣😂, i feel like they match up all wrong. and usually i dont stand a chance. i played tonight and won 1 race. and im expecting thats about the best i will do. i feel like there is some kind of big spacial discrepancy between the way they match the players half the time. im an E , but i get A's and S's and S+'s 🤣😂, then there is the horrible wait time as im watching the coins go by to wait for players to match up 😁, no thanks, thats not fun to me.
