View Full Version : I unlocked Phantom Class

29th March 2005, 12:12 AM
Hey folks,

Just unlocked Phantom a few minutes ago..

I beat all of rapier w/Feisar.

Ran the first track... got gold but it was extremely tight...

It's a 5 lap race, as I'm sure many of you probably assumed. It's going to be pretty damn hard in the 4th and 3rd last track (not counting the classics) :(

haha... I really need to remember the names...

Ah well... back to gold-getting.

Sol2 is the easiest track of them all

TMoney: Is it faster than XL Phantom with Piranha?

29th March 2005, 01:12 AM
It doesn't seem like it - but I'm using Feisar right now.

can i bother you with a request?, if you have the zone ship, can you try that one in Phantom?, THANKS!!! ;)

29th March 2005, 01:30 AM

I don't have the zone ship...

I do have the medievil ship, which is rated at 5 for top speed I believe.

I've seen screens of the zone ship in real tracks.. so I suspect I need to get gold on all 4 zones to do it.

I'm not the biggest zone fan, so I only have 2 of those and every gold medal in every category rapier and lower...

The Medievil ship can be handled on the 1st track... but it isn't easy... and I'd probably not be able to do it on most tracks.

I can win fairly easily w/feisar if I concentrate.... so I'm going to stick w/that for now.

i have the zone ship and phantom class and in my opinion it isnt quite as fast as XL phantom but one reason for that feeling might be the difference in the tracks. It is pretty quick though and with the somewhat agressive ai phantom keeps you on your toes (especially with the zone ship, you get blown up a lot).

Thanks for the reply Tmoney

Def thanks for the answer!, i guess XL phantom with piranha will still be my Wipeout nirvana.

Still I so want to try Pure, gotta save money, the hardware is expensive.

Zone ship?
That thing I saw in the manual, Core?
Problem though.
Where's the stats for Assegai in the manual?

29th March 2005, 04:53 AM
no, in the manual ( pg 18 ) the stats listed under "core" are for the assegai ship, zone has 5/5 speed 5/5 handling 4/5 thrust and 1/5 shield

Thanks, but that "Core" craft has a different logo though... but 1/5 shields for the Zone craft??!!?!? WTF!?!?!?!?

29th March 2005, 05:02 AM
different logo but those are the assegai stats.

29th March 2005, 07:09 AM
Whats this, another cock up with Assegai in the actual manual this time? First the US website, now the manual. Whats up SCEE?

29th March 2005, 08:49 AM
Shouldn't that be what's up with SCEA?

29th March 2005, 08:59 AM
Yes it should.

Does that mean SCEE won’t make these mistakes? You had better not or else… *fist shaking*

I'd imagine intoxicated probably has more sway in an organisation he works in. :)

Phantom has 5 laps? But doesn't have Vector 2? Which two classes then have the same number of laps per race?


29th March 2005, 11:43 AM
vector / venom - 3 laps
flash / rapier - 4 laps
phantom - 5 laps

29th March 2005, 11:58 AM
Aha, so that's how they did it. Thanks a lot! :)

29th March 2005, 12:06 PM
no problem. yea the arrangement works pretty well 5 laps goes by pretty quickly on phantom.

29th March 2005, 12:18 PM
Well, after hearing that we'd get a new class, I was hoping Phantom races would then last 6 laps. I would have liked slightly longer races a lot. But that's no new Pure rant yet, of course. ;-)
