There are obvious annoyances in this game, which everyone lists; blue shells, glitches, getting hit right at the end and having everyone overtake you, three red shells, et cetera. Which I agree are all very annoying.

However, the two things that really bug me are:

1. Getting the squid as an item. Those things are OK when playing against the computer, but useless when playing against actual people! Real people know how to use the map to navigate while they have the ink on their screens. If you're in 4th or 5th place, coming up to the last set of items in the game and hoping for something good, and you get the squid, it's really frustrating (especially if the person behind you then gets a red shell and you have nothing to defend yourself with).

2. People who shoot shells at the person behind them just as they're about to cross the finish line on the last lap. I can understand shooting people behind you if you're in the lead throughout the race as a defensive strategy, but why do it when you're just about to cross the line on the last lap? There's no tactical reason for it, the person behind you is no longer a threat. The only reason is to screw up the chances of that person behind... basically, to be a jerk!

I don't think I shoot any shells behind me unless I'm about to get a new item, I usually just keep them behind me for protection when I'm at first o:
Yeah so do I, in fact it's pretty much all I do.

Getting Blooper in eighth place is one of the most annoying things in MK in my opinion. The same thing also used to happen to me in MK Wii.

I've had something somewhat worse. I recall someone in front of me on wifi using a star, and then backed up and hit me without warning. So I understand where you're coming from about getting hit right at the end. that's happened to me before, mostly with blue shells.

I never rage quit myself. However, I kind of can't really blame you there.
