Anyone else notice that this game is becoming very laggy?
With the 2.4.0 update, more RAM is used (and CPU as well if you use the dynamic switch between portrait and landscape), this makes the game perform worse on older phones.

With an iPhone 6, you need to use Power Saving mode to be able to finish some races, otherwise the game uses so much RAM that it ends up being killed by iOS in the middle of some races or before the results, invalidating the whole race.

Well ****. I use iPhone 6S Plus. It should stop using so much ram damn it. If your app is crashing phones you got a problem

To be fully fair, the site explicitly says that phones with just 1 GB of RAM aren’t supported, consequently they rejected my ticket about the game going out of memory.

The game isn’t even supposed to run on my phone, so I’m already lucky that I can still compete in ranked cups without spending a dime.

Your phone is supported though, so if you notice major reproducible issues you can file a ticket using the built-in support dialog.

Fancy that, it was Bowser Jr.

Nice that Airship Fortress is located over lava, and the "fortress" exterior looks like a castle. Really fits the World 8 setting.

Yeah I prefer the ruined, isolated, sorta spooky aesthetic of a track rather than this.

Gotta agree. They call those things airships and why not have a fortress in the sky?

But if you think the lava is a good change, then that's fine too! I just see it being too close to Bowser's Castle at this point though.

I don’t mind the lava theme too much and I like when developers go the extra mile when remaking a track, especially so in a game that is known to favor SNES and N64 courses since they are easy to remake, but I’m surprised that they didn’t follow the Ruined Kingdom theme, since that track was already very similar in both concept - ruined castle - and color choices.

The Ruined Kingdom entailed in a lot of misery for developers according to the Art of Super Mario Odyssey, so maybe that kingdom will just remain the way it is... Forgotten.

Huh, I didn't know the developers had a tough time making the Ruined Kingdom. I...I think that may have changed my perception of the kingdom.

Here's the developer comment on the Ruined Kingdom, particularly from one of the art directors.

Rikuto Yoshida; Art of Super Mario Odyssey; page 258 said:
Each kingdom in this game is distinct from the others, and from the very beginning we had ideas for a medieval fantasy world complete with a dragon boss. Even so, we had some difficulty deciding which direction to take this. At one point, scheduling difficulties made it seem like the stage idea itself would fall to ruin... Still, we found a gameplay style we could agree on and somehow made everything work in the end.

Like the T-Rex and Sphinx, we aimed to make a by-the-book dragon design that would offer players a realistic surprise. Both its looks and the gameplay made this boss difficult to assemble, and you could often hear the stage lead uttering their own cries of woe. Despite the difficulties, though, I think this stage is a fine addition to the latter half of the game.

How in the world does Daisy have more alts than Luigi

Or Wario (who also has more alt costumes than Luigi)

At least, Luigi has the same number of alts as Waluigi.

Hey so if I wanted to add information to the wiki about what the exact kanji are on these gliders and what they mean, would I put it in the main section or would I add a trivia section?

Main section. I'd minimize the amount of trivia as possible.
