Mario Kart Tour Guide – What Are The Points?
Based on the number of points that you get by completing a race, you get the Grand Stars, which are required to unlock the next cups in the tour. When you finish off the race, the game calculates the points and you get the Grand Stars. The higher the points, the more Grand Stars you can get(not more than the maximum limit). So how the game calculates the points? And, how do you earn more points in Mario Kart Tour Game? Let’s find out!
Types of Points in Mario Kart Tour Game: –
- Position Points
- Base Points
- Bonus Points
Position Points: –
In Mario Kart Tour game, you race with more than five characters. And, your objective is to finish off the race with #1 rank. The higher the rank in the race, the more position points you get. Leave other characters behind and try to get in the top 3 to get more position points. The lower the rank in the race, the fewer points you get.
- 1st Rank – x1
- 2nd Rank – x0.85
- 3rd Rank – x0.75
- 4th Rank – x0.65
- 5th Rank – x0.55
- 6th Rank – x0.45
- 7th Rank – x0.35
- 8th Rank – x0.2
As you can see in the table – as the rank drops, the points reward drop simultaneously.
Base Point(s) calculation is determined by the individual score – the driver, kart, and the glider selected by you. Each driver/kart/glider has their individual score, which adds to the total points calculation after the race. For example –
- Driver – 513
- Kart – 232
- Glider – 232
So the total base points would be 977(Driver score+Kart score+Glider score).
After the race, on the points calculation screen, there would be a separate score for this section! Bonus Points are given to the player upon performing actions such as jumps(pass through jump boosters), knocking off the opponents(hit them using the items), combos, and techniques.
After finishing the race, the combines these scores(bonus points, base points, and the position points) – and, based on these points, you will get the Grand Stars. Your objective is to earn enough points to get all the Grand Stars.
Mario Kart Tour Guide – Favored Courses or Tracks?
In each cup, you race on a variety of courses. For example – In the Donkey Kong Cup, three courses are Dino Dino Jungle, Toad Circuit, and Rock Rock Mountain. If you select the drivers or characters based on the favored course, you will get more items from the item boxes.
If the track is not preferred by the character/driver – and, yet, you choose him/her for the race, you will get only one item per item box.
The same rule applies to kart and glider. However, both these provide a different buff to the player.
To start the race, you have to select three things: –
Character – select the best character to get three items per item box or two items per item box.
Kart – select the best kart to get more bonus points.
Glider – select the best glider to get more combo bonus and combo-time boost.
On the selection screen, you can check the bonus/buff a character/kart/glider gets. If you don’t have the best ones, then go with the available ones.
Mario Kart Tour Guide – Leveling Up
As you raise the player level, the game gives more position points. Also, as a level-up reward, you get free rubies in Mario Kart Tour. How do you level up? By obtaining the EXP, you can level up.
