A follow-up question from here. The main question is:
Are coins saved to your account at the end of the race, or at the end of a Grand Prix, in Mario Kart 8 (or every Mario Kart, for that matter)
'We' always talk about coins awarded every race, because then it is determined how much you should earn, but is it also saved at that moment to your account?
For example, you collect 10 coins in race 1, 5 in race 2. Half-way during race 3 you have 7 coins, but I remember the pizza in the oven is done, and I have to eat. Because I can't play MK8 during pizza eating, I quit the game from the in-game menu, and turn off the Wii U. How much coins do I have extra then:
- 0, because the GP isn't finished
- 15, because that is the amount of coins collected in finished races
- 22, because that is the amount of coins collected in finished races and the amount I have in this race
In the first two cases, rage quitting would not result in a lower coin amount, but the third option will. However, the third option would be exploitable, by starting a GP (with 5 coins) and quit immediately. Of course it is more fun by playing, but this way coin grinding is a lot faster (and you need 10000 coins for the Gold Glider
