I saw Link. I was thinking of buying the game.

Well that didn't last, didn't it.

I'm not terribly surprised Yoshi is at the top, I felt like after the changes they made to trick shots that Yoshi's speed went from unnecessary to incredibly useful.

Not that I can find anyone that plays online in Australia these days. Those co-op challenges might as well not exist at all for me and even though the rewards for them are cosmetic, having them be locked out from me because of things out of my control left me a little bitter so I've pretty much stopped playing this completely.

Lucky that I got all the Yoshi colors from co-op challenge just one day before it ended.

Earning points is surprisingly not as tedious as before the Online subscription requirement, so I am halfway in unlocking Luigi's costumes. Still wish they provide a way to unlock the character costumes because I missed out on 3 or 4 months worth of challenges, as I wasn't patient enough to wait for the Co-op games (even the Yoshi ones). If only I have some people to co-op with.

Thank you for reading.

I got Plumber Mario back in June, the Yoshi colors last-minute, and Plumber Luigi a couple days ago.  I did not get the Boo visors, unfortunately, as I had neither the game nor a subscription back then.

What do you think of it?

Somewhat disappointed, but there's always room for a turn around.

Did you play co-op with family or with other people online? I have a feeling that it's possible to earn points on a friendly session, which would mean that having a person to play with is a huge advantage itself.

I've got five siblings, so it's pretty easy to find people to play with in my house.  I got half of the required points with my brother and one of my sisters, so I only had to find one other person online.  The other half I did by myself, so I had to find three other people online.  But I frequently logged in to the room, and I didn't have many problems finding players (other than the fact that this one guy was usually in the online room but would always instantly leave when I entered for some reason).

I have finished Star Cup in this game finally, and it was as difficult as it is. I used Koopa Paratroopa intending for this tournament to be a warm up, but it proves to be tougher than I thought. I don't remember the first opponent I faced, but the second was Bowser Jr., which gave me trouble so I suspect his AI is much better than average. The final match is against Spike which I suspect had the highest difficulty AI, and he proved to be too much that I just quit. Luckily you can continue where you left off, and Mario was my opponent that time (which is better because being defeated by Mario beats being defeated by Spike). The match went much better for me so I can't complain about the opponent change.

In terms of online, I still never won a tournament in both Standard and Simple, so I feel like I am the worst Mario Tennis player in the forums. Because winning earlier matches increases rating, the Finals will usually be very tough because I will inevitably be matched up against tougher opponents. My current rating is in the C (2200 - 2349) range for Standard, and C- (2100 - 2199) for Simple, so sadly I probably will never win a tournament.

Star Cup was tough for me too.  Man, I had to fight Bowser in the semis!  He was one of the hardest opponents I've ever faced offline.

I won an online tournament after many tries, it's doable if not frustrating.  If it helps, I never broke past C- and quickly dropped back to D+.

For those who has also played Mario Power Tennis and Mario Tennis Open, how would you compare the difficulty?
