Well, in the end I decided to join, I'm actually involved with the Mario-related community (mainly the Super Mario Wiki) including the Mario Kart games (but not really from a competitive point of view, more like from a "how do they work" point of view!).
I was introduced a few weeks ago to Korean KartRider by PacMani and became interested in the core game, including how it explores new avenues that Mario Kart series so far failed to explore, and - you guessed it - in the dinos and pterosaurs...
I honestly already am pretty involved on the Mario part so I don't know how much I will manage to be active here, but still hope I won't be an annoyance for you...

Welcome, welcome! Glad to have you here and glad that PacMani invited you. A fellow racer no matter from which game is still considered part of our "extended family".

As varied as KartRider may seem, it has had its share of problems breaking through the main stream audience which Mario Kart has no trouble with.

What wikis in specific are you vested in (I'll let you shameless plug this one time :shifty:)

Hi Mister Wu! Pacmani is a genius for bringing people over form the MK community! DaFlameKing is also right about the mainstream thing with KartRider, but be rest assured that SOMEDAY a PC-driven racing game similar to Mario Kart/KartRider will be released that will break open those doors. The tourneys in Korea already show that an e-Sport would work, Mario Kart's fame shows that the casual side can be done, which means the remaining thing is how to keep the hardcore players interested like League, Overwatch, etc.

Thank you again, and have fun!

P.S.: You can add me on Kart (USAlNova or USA1Keng). Thanks again!

Thanks! I'm currently working on the Super Mario Wiki, where I also report the actual in-game stats and actual item probability in the various Mario Kart games.

Thanks! Actually, i already have you added, but this is a more complex matter that we'll discuss with PacMani!

Also, sorry if I don't write much about a comparison of Kartrider with Mario Kart for now, there would be a lot to write about!

You can sum it up like this
Mario Kart 8 > KartRider > Mario Kart Wii
*insert kappa face* ;D
