7/30 update: Popkart's great downfall
In today's update, TianCity released a new "well" designed quest for players to get unlimited karts ! (range from E2 - SR, Cotton SR as being the unlimited time SR).

Well sounds interesting eh? The truth is here, you need to race with a SR to obtain jewels to finish the quest, now some people might say, it's really simple ! you get jewels from racing and jewels just come from every race (regardless of speed of item mode).

BUT you need 4400 total of jewels to get unlimited time Cotton SR ! ( YES IT'S OVER 4000 ! And see the calculation below for more info, mostly the time spent to get it)

Rough calculations based on players in Popkart:

1 Jewel per 4 rounds, rarely 2 Jewels in one:

4400 x 4 = roughly 16000-17600 (sometimes 2 jewels in one race)
and let's suppose one race is about 3 mins long:

16000-17600 x 3 mins = 48000 - 52800 mins = roughly 800-880 hours ! ???wtf?

So yea, basically this quest is just so insane that nobody's getting the unlimited time Cotton SR, now players in Popkart are crtiticizing TC and waiting for changes in the quest, and we'll see what happens, if TC still remain the quest same, I would consider this as another great downfall of Popkart.

EDIT: the quest lasts until 8/26, which is less than a month, 800-880 hours of gameplay in the summer? TC is just insane...and yes, about 18 hours of gameplay EVERYDAY if you're hardcore enough, about 30 hours per DAY for casual players (remember, we only have 24 hours in one day, TC fails at math too......)

There's not even 800 hours in a month, lol. Impossible, but I guess that's why it gives such a good prize.

Just go tested it, 5 speed races, only got 1, and I got bored out of it......

I mean, come on, Cotton SR in PK is slow as a R4 now, 270~ boost in L3 only, giving out as a prize in a lower quantity WILL attract back players, but they're doing it worse, 4000? what the hell are they thinking?.........they should raise the rate.

I partly understand that TC is a company too, plus everyone knows that this event is to attract old/new players, but they're just freakin stupid to think about the math.....

Oh well,TC is having another server check tomorrow. We'll see.

Btw, the popkart forums are spammed with people complaining now lol

O MY FUCKIN GOD. WTF??????????????????????
I cant play that long :(
They are just making us play.
No one is going to get it, unless they play it 24 hours a day, no sleeping, eating
