View Full Version : A Challenge for 'Endurance' pilot...;)

2nd November 2007, 02:21 PM
Hi All.

This is a challenge for lovers of endurance races.:nod

A track
A determinated number of laps, at least 50 laps.
Phantom Class
No Triakis and/or only Triakis
.....the Time....:)

The challenge is simple: the less total time, the better!

Are you in agreement?

I want to start with Porto Kora.

50 free laps phantom class.....

Who is a crazy wiper enough to accept this challenge? :D

To calculate the challenge time it will be enough to stop in the lap following the last scheduled one and Subtract from the total time the time spent in the last lap.

Hi Rom!

Long time no seeing (both on the forum and on kai). You are very good in finding ways to define new challenges, as usual. :)

I think I might sit down and try this, but I am not sure I will do many sessions in order to push the results... On the other hand, maybe the idea is not to try it too many times? It could be that there are enough laps in order to get a good representation of the average quality of the pilot, so that in multiple tries the results will be quite similar.

No Triakis and/or only Triakis

I think the 'and' part is not very interesting since the statement "No Triakis and only Triakis" excludes all ships. :p

Cheers mate :beer

Hi All!....and hi Stefan!!!

I must now add a little new rule to the challenge.

It is not fair to complete the race by introducing pauses in the game...the challenge is a long one shot at phantom speed ;)

Excuse me Stefan for the mismatch with the ship....only i think that we possibly have two type of challenge one with only Triakis and one with all the others ships.... :)

ok! now i have a start at Porto Kora with my little AgSys (after 20 lap i've the annoying voice of 'energy critical' in my ears :D )....

for now, here is my first result:

Hi Rom, impressive time you got!

I have finished the endurance challenge now. The last ten laps were horrible.

During the race I was thinking that I had to watch the energy in order not to blow up. For that reason I usually absorbed the turbo in order to recover energy. In fact, I was not critical a single time during the race. It was not until after the race that I realised that I cannot explode in Free Play... Maybe I could have been a little faster. :?

Ship: Puma 2
Total Time: 20.15
Average Lap Time: 24.30
Best Lap Time: 22.56

Btw, sorry for the stupid remark before (about the 'and'). I was in a silly mood. ;)


I have now finished a proper attempt.

Ship: Piranha
Total Time: 19.36
Average Lap Time: 23.52
