I was racing this guy "Ben" via Wifi and he had like 2500 wins and 800 losses I think. In the 4 races that we had, most of the time he got the start advantage and I was always second to him ( it was a one vs one race ). It didnt matter that I was second ( last ), and if I was close to him, far from him, and very far from him ... EVERY TIME I went through an item box, in hopes that I will get a good item to slow him down ( blue shell, lightning, red shell, star, etc ... ), all I got was a mediocre banana, green shell, or bomb!!! Maybe an occasional single mushroom that counts as nothing if you snake.
Is there a cheat that prevents players from getting good items?
I noticed that he was holding most of the time a banana. He didnt use it at all ... so maybe there is some kind of glitch.
Anyone know anything about this? ... or did I just had pure and uber bad luck?
