    I press to get it early as a rule, unless something is happening that diverts my attention.... as for whether or not it affects the item you get, sometimes when i get duff stuff i feel it has, but I'm undecided overall:eyebrow:

    I like to let the box slow down on its own. I think you do have a higher chance of getting a better item if you wait.

    I always press the A button to get my item quicker. There's really no difference than waiting, the only one is that you see the Star slip right past you into a banana peel.


    - That's why we won't back down, we won't run and hide, yeah 'cause these are the things that we can't deny, I'm passing over you like a satellite, so catch me if I fall -

    I feel there should be a hidden system that increases chances on getting a good item if you don't spam, I feel it is deserved for not relying on items.

    Off course I'm the best I have to be, I'm using the 21st fastest character in the game, the 8th slowest.
    Why be the fastest when you can be the cutest?

    I always speed up the roulette and I don't think it affects the kind of item I will get. I believe the second you hit the item box, the computer already knows what it's going to give you. The roulette is just for show.

    if it's something i really needed to help me win, i'll save it 'til the right time comes.

    but if i don't need it, i just throw it.

    It would very depending on the situation, but the speed of the roulette won't make much difference with the results since you could still end up with a Fake Item Box when you don't want it.

    For me it's mostly random. Just whatever I feel like doing at the time. But there definitely are times when I will try to stop it early. I can't think of any time where I will definitely wait for it to stop.

    (Again this isn't saying that I never wait for it to stop, just that I can't think of any time where a situation comes up where I will definitely wait every time.)

    If the back side indicator is saying that a red shell is coming, I will try to get whatever as quickly as possible.

    If a POW block is about to POW which ever item I am about to get out of me then I will try to stop it early.

    There are also circumstances in certain stages. Like for the first set of item boxes in DK Summit I will almost always stop it early. I have gotten many Thunderclouds in that first set of item boxes. However when I stop it early, I am still in the cannon so the Thundercloud disappears.

    I remember several occasions where I didn't stop it early and got mad at myself when I received a Thundercloud and was already outside of the cannon.
