View Full Version : Races with weapons off.

Friday night I was doing a race online with weapons off in phantom. This race was on Chenghou Project, within 2 laps my shield was critical because of all the BRs possible. Luckely I was able to do 3 perfect laps and survive the race. But later on I was thinking maybe I just should have let myself explode and get new energy for more BRs and be faster.

If this will be the way to be faster in races with weapons off, then it will suck big time. Does any of you tried this out yet? Otherwise we'll have to experiment with it to find out what is faster! I hope to be faster without exploding because otherwise there is no challenge in racing with weapons off.

Here is hoping for a good outcome for all our Avalon lovers out there.

Non-weapon hotlap parties invented and generally hosted by Kanar. The operating principle is to be "the fastest, ever."

I gathered the fastest ever part from a quick forum search but i couldnt find any detailed info on it, thanks for that flash.

I feel like some sort of unsanctioned, underground rebel league has formed within our ranks! :P And slipped right under my nose in the process.

"Underground rebel league" :lol Very much so, but peace-loving rebels too, and therefore not likely to win the war in the end. ;)

Mad, I`m not sure if this is going to be a problem as when you respawn it`s only with 30% energy, I think - so maybe two or three more BRs and you would be dead again. I don`t think you would quite make up the time lost from dying, but we should test it I think.

How ironic then that someone with weapons on could pick up turbos and flatten these fastest ever records.

Mad-Ice, don't worry mate, getting eliminated sets you back A LOT, no way in catching up all that time, even if you had full shields after respawn.

Hi guys,

Back from the lab (f----n' floaty fish)

Just noticed that thread, ok elhabib so no probs for online TTs good news. If I may; just wanted with that avalon thing to federate all the beat-music + TT/SL lovers. That's all. Peace Rapier LOL

Anyway I'm obliged to use these guns in my HD gold quest!

Hm, I guess I can use this forgotten thread for it. So, if anyone is interested in Phantom races without weapons, feel free to add me. Maybe we can gather enough people to meet more or less reguarly and play a nice tournament withount boom-boom. C u on the track!

Funny, I'd been meaning to create a thread for exactly that purpose. I'm not really any good at Phantom speed, but if anyone's interested in non-weapon races in Rapier class (or below), go ahead and add me as well.

Too bad many people leave when I choose weapons off or zone battle...Most people i play today aren't good pilots,they win because of the accuracy with plasmas and rockets (I'm quite good shooting rockets on corners,but i'm not a freak like some people around the game...

Sad but true. Recently, I hosted a single race "weps on"; A freak raced in front of me, just to fall behind all of a sudden and shoot my rear end. Or passing me to wait at the following corner and shoot rockets right into my face...this happened 2 races in a row. The whole time! :brickwall WTF? Itīs not an eliminator - itīs a damn single race!

I turned into weps off, and guess what: The freak left the room, sending me a message sayinī: German Coward.
Man, I totally unlatched and gave her massive retaliation. No remorse, serves her right.

Let me guess,her name is U_Love_Sheepgirl?

Yeah,she always does that,I race her really often,seems like she follows me,and I win most of the times...She started doing this to me yesterday,and I sent her a message: "U_Hate_Me?"

She replied,I replied,she replied,I replied...

Then she said I was no competition for her,even after beating the :turd outta her :lol

The technique with her is not to appear angry in your messages, then she gradually just gives up :P She beat me in a 1v1 12 race tourney using that technique and I freaked her out 'cause I was perfectly calm at the end of it :P

Warning, not for the the faint hearted :

Dunno where he got that alias, but his racing/messages seem awfully normal after seeing that *pukes* I shan't question sheepgirl's motives again for they are unfathomable...

I did the same search too,P_Denton...

That's the exact same results i had (of course,same search,same results,:lol )
I freaked her out some days ago since i had lots of shields and autopilots (after getting hit,use the autopilot,it will make it so that the hit never happened)

Then I started playing her game,i kept on side-shifting into her ship when she stopped,she couldn't shoot me and eventually left...Some time later she joined again and I made zone battle.She also plays the aggressive person in it too :lol

Aaaanyway,i haven't heard any news about her for some time,maybe she give up "attacking" me...she saves the weapons she gets to hit the 1st place,anybody ever noticed?

Flint Fandango
7th November 2011, 03:10 PM
Yeah, thatīs her...U_Love_Sheepgirl or sweet_sheepgirl. Well, I would have ignored the message if it were only about the "coward" - but regarding the "German" itīs no fun at all, itīs down on a personal level!
I gave her "German", you bet. :twisted

In my opinion, youīve to accept the hosts choices or leave the lobby. Fair enough. If you wanna do an eliminator race - no problem, go for it. But please, try to keep a level head and something like dignity during a single race/tournament!

Who is this sheepgirl anyway? I've never seen or heard of this person in any of the rooms that I frequent. Do they stay away from Phantom speed or something?

U_Love_Sheepgirl... I can't believe we're discussing that person. I'll say honestly, I don't think I'm playing the same game as some of these kids who race online (and I use the term "race" lightly).

They stay away from Phantom rooms, alright. They stay away from any room that isn't Flash, Weapons On, BRs off, 8-player shim-sham.

Anyone know how many sheepgirls are there? I've seen 3 of them...

I like messing with her sometimes,but if you guys are those who can't take some offensive messages,here is a tip:

1.Go to messages box
2.Press Triangle on one of her messages
3.Add her to Blocked List
4.Done! She won't bother you anymore :)

Flint Fandango

Huh? Thereīs a blocked list?? Thatīs fantastic, Iīll try it immediately! :D
Thanks, mate! Now, the discussion about the sheep-freak is over, I guess.

They've been at if for a good couple of years at least; they were around when I started playing, although they raced under the name 'feel_the_weapon' at the time. Honestly, I don't really have a problem with other people using stop+shoot tactics like that, I just start doing it back if I see it! I just see it as a different style of play - if you can pull it off, go for it.
