Many improvements have been made to the general gameplay mechanics and core systems. Weapons have been rebalanced, difficulty levels have greater consequences, kart handling has been improved, AI obstacle avoidance has been rewritten, as have shields, armor, and more. Furthermore, respawning actually works much better! You now have a small period in which you are essentially transparent to others, and will not collide with them, before you fully re-enter the race. Enjoy the latest update, and stay tuned for more!
