I recently got a bronze medal for making it into the top 1000 for the Easy Endless Challenge. However, I had to clear up to 864 courses to get there.

I just got the game and right now it's pretty fun. Didn't play some brutally hard courses but I mainly got this to play with some friends later on.

(I hope later on is soon because it has almost been a month and there's still no option to play with your friends, cmon nintendo)
 
Apparently there's a new update that ups the course upload limit to 64. And it's not gonna stop there, as they plan on raising it one more time! Great, can't wait to get online again and upload more.

Sadly, that doesn't really help when your courses are not attracting anybody. Those who are very popular get to feast with a lot of players and likes, while the rest are being treated as lowlifes who are begging for their courses to be played and liked. And let's not forget that Nintendo does not allow people to ask for likes.

At times, it just feels like a total waste when you notice that your own hard work, regardless of how good or how fun it is, is being ignored. And even if people do play your courses, they have to clear AND like them if you want your maker point amount to increase.

Imagine playing Super Mario Maker 2 for recognition and fame
I totally get it though. When you make a level, you want people to see it, play it, and enjoy it. You wouldn't want it to just disappear into the void, would you? The worst part is when you have an actually good level and it gets taken down because not enough people came across it.

I'm not sure how much the second game improved this, but the first game was utterly evil to the unlucky. The upload limit depended entirely on how many stars you had, so if nobody ever saw your courses, you wouldn't be able to share many courses at all. Worst of all, your course could actually be taken down if it didn't get enough views or stars, never to be seen again unless you knew about the scheme beforehand and saved a backup (luckily, I did).

In short, sharing your courses is an absolutely essential component of the game. There is a solid line between playing for fame and simply wanting your hard work to be noticed. It's just depressing that Nintendo's so tough on newcomers and make it harder than it should be to simply get your courses out there. The second game removed star-based upload limits from what I've heard...but I wouldn't be surprised if permanent course takedowns solely due to lack of views is still a thing.

... Why isn't that limit established to begin with!?

My guess would be that they don't want the servers crashing because too many levels are being uploaded within a short timeframe, so they're gradually increasing upload limits to prevent that.

Whatever the reason, it's much better than "you can only upload 10 courses until you get more stars" from the first game.

I'm that guy who's happy enough that one person plays a level, lucky me that I've had over 60 plays combined.

I just don't see how flooding will overwhelm their servers, particularly when there's a playerbase already uploading tons of levels per second. They're telling me they can't handle users uploading level after level? Pfft.

Anyone else annoyed that Fire Bros. are only in 3D World style despite also existing in SMB3 and NSMBU?
