View Full Version : Wip3out pileup

In my opinion, the most annoying thing that can happen to you. Youre racing round, about 4th-5th place and the guy in front drops mines say, while you activate a forcewall. You bam into the guy in front, everyone else comes whacking into the back of you, hitting the force wall, pushing you into the mines, its chaos. You get moving again and youve gone from 4th to 10th. Annoying?

It's the "floatiest" WO, but when he comes flying back from that force wall and hits you, he always manages a direct hit on you.
It would be awesome if only your sharp, pointy, arrow-shaped craft would slip under or over or even to the side of the oncoming craft (taking significant damage, sure) instead of somehow always managing to nail it dead-on center.

Till that happens though, change lanes right after you fire off the force wall. Avoids the whole problem at least 80% of the time that way.

Yeah, there is the more minor version where you activate the forcewall and hit the guy hitting the force wall in front, but that isnt usually so bad. Im talking the 5 or 6 ship pileups, usually occuring when the race is quite closely bunched. It reminds me of when one cyclist crashes at the start of a bicycle race and half the field goes with him.
