Early on after the launch of Mario Kart 8, players discovered a technique dubbed “fire hopping” in which players could greatly extend a speed boost by rapidly flipping the joystick at just the right time. This became a pretty widely used controversial technique, but it appears that the latest patch (which added in 200cc Mode) has eliminated it, or at the very least greatly diminished its effectiveness. There’s some debate among players on the MK Boards, but everyone seems to agree that fire hopping is nowhere near as effective as it once was.
