Most other stuff is related to strategy, which basically boils down to not wasting your items. It's not that hard to learn when the best times to use an item are.

Theoretically you could devise some pretty sophisticated team strategies,..... but I don't know of any pro item teams that are that organized yet.

Basically, Item skills are only gonna give you a small advantage. You could still lose.
Thank you. No matter how "skilled" you are, you cannot win without the items you need. For example: getting a useless UFO zapper when you're 2nd while the opposing team is 1st. If this was Popkart, what is really more annoying is getting the Suicide Time Bomb in those circumstances, and not being able to use it without hurting yourself.

If you want, I can think up of many other situations where skill doesn't play a part.

I never said it didn't take any skill. However, it doesn't take a lot of skill... that a Yellow Glove (and I don't mean fake newbies) beating a Starred Rainbow Glove is possible.
yeah thats tru but glove ranking dont me shiet just how long you have been racing for not skill :roll:
Yes, I'm aware of that. Gloves doesn't show skill, but shows experience. Let me put it this way: you get 1st place in a singles race (teams too), and then suddenly in the next race, you get 8th place (or last). Would you call that skill or luck?

My point being: skill isn't a big part of Item mode that it is almost insignificant. Why else can your rank drop or increase dramatically between games?
That doesnt happen to me either im wining them all or losing them all :lol:

It doesn't always happen, but it happens quite a lot in Item mode when you suddenly get 8th place (or any other low ranking) after being 1st the previous game. Either way, you should get my point.

In NAKR I'm usually either first or second. In popkart, however, it's a lot more random. I go from first to last much more easily.

.... They're either more skilled or the items and stuff that you can buy just make it harder to stay ahead.

Even in NAKR, you cannot always gurantee 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place because Item mode is really random.

It does take skill, but only basic skills that it is almost insignificant compared to luck.

It depends what items other people get and who they choose to use it on. That is also another factor where it is pure luck: the chance of them choosing you as a target.

I've played plenty of games where I've gone from 1st to 8th (or any low rank) or retire within the 2 games, even with all the same players.

It depends on whether or not those other guys know how to use their items to get back to #1 aswell.

Besides, if you're talking about teams, then it's your team thats preventing the opposing team from stealing first from you. All you're really doing is shielding any attacks if possible, and winning the race, but really it's your teammates doing all the work if you've been first in a race for quite a while.

But you get the point: Item mode is nothing but luck and very basic skills.
