I'm just confused what's the use of shields in TR? 

I thought they were to avoid those smoke clods and boxes, maybe even fireballs. But I'm really confused. Are they good for anything?

If other people in the race

If other people in the race are right next to you or right behind you, the shield bumps them back away from you. Basically if someone is too close it gives you a little distance.

 

I get bumped with shields a lot so I find it very annoying xD

I don't usually shoot unless

I don't usually shoot unless someone does something extremely inconvienent on purpose. Like slowing down while in first to put a box or cloud right in front of me. (That has actually happened, but I managed to barely avoid it and take their place.) If I get hit with a shield I will just sit at my desk with this look on my face >:O The rest of the race.

 

Wait do you have a Black Monstrous Nightmare? I remember racing someone with Butter in their name.

I still remember my first day

I still remember my first day of kindergarten so remembering that wasn't all that hard xD

 

I don't think you shot me I just remember seeing your name and the dragon though. Also the course for some reason O.O

No problem :)! I don't know

No problem :)! I don't know for sure if it blocks shots or not though. Whenever I have a shield nothing happens, but when other people do I bounce back so I just know that part.
