Guess how many points you got for fifth place? NOTHING.
Congrats on picking up gimme points for coming in ninth place on your beautiful Wii course, little kid! You did it! But hey, guess what? Once upon a time Mario Kart didn't believe in that brainless AYSO everyone-gets-a-trophy mentality. Once upon a time you only got points if you came in first, second, third, or fourth. And guess how many points you got for fourth? ONE. ONE POINT FOR FOURTH. Fifth place or below? ZERO. NO POINTS. IT'S LIKE YOU DIDN'T EVEN PLAY AT ALL.
