View Full Version : Modesto Heights Reverse WR!

15th August 2011, 02:08 AM
After a very long time of doing speed laps on ModR, my favorite track by far, I was finally able to dethrone Elois and his year and a half old record with my own!

18:82, 21 pads, 3 BR's (same as Leungbok's BR's in his video which helped me greatly), in a FEISAR+.

Thanks to Connavar and his record keeping website I feel pretty comfortable that I still have first even with the records not updating in-game.

I know making a thread like this is pretty annoying for most, but please overlook it this one time. I've been trying to best Elois' ridiculously quick time for pretty much my entire WipEout career and now that it has happened I feel like I officially beat WipEout as a game. Though I'm going to continue trying to improve my time since I enjoy ModR probably more than anyone else in the world.

I'm sorry that there's not much to discuss here but feel free to ask me any questions about the track I guess, though there's not much to tell!

The last pic is impressive!!
Well done mate :rock

Awesome! Now take a crack at the time trial where the real skill comes into play. ;)

For perseverance, if not pure bull terrier stubbornness of not letting go till you beat it.
I absolutely detest that particular track myself [well the FURY version ], maybe I should take the time to try and learn it anew, now you have set a new record .
Not knowing my times of the top of my head, I reckon I'll be happy if I can get 21 sec or close to it.....yes I really do struggle with that %^&*()&^* long corner in the tunnel. :redface::frown::rolleyes:

Haha, thanks guys.

I'm working on Time Trial, I think I managed to get 4th on it but man restarting the track after every screw up gets frustrating.

15th August 2011, 03:30 PM
You beat Elois? o_O

Damn, that is some seriously good stuff there Frailavi, well impressed! :rock

15th August 2011, 03:47 PM
Nicely done! Leaderboards seem to have updated for once as well, so its there for all to see!

15th August 2011, 04:31 PM
:o Congratulations Frailavi! Good work and kudos to your perseverance! :clap

15th August 2011, 04:32 PM
Congratulations Frailavi, you deserve it!

16th August 2011, 01:55 AM
Wow, great job indeed :nod hope I get there one day haha

16th August 2011, 06:51 PM
Congrats Frailavi. Nice to see a relatively unknown get a record :)

Congratulations Frail! You were always a superbly talented pilot, and now that's ascertained for good. Now I just gotta keep ahead of you in Zone and Detonator .

Thanks everyone, though I'm surprised no one asked me any questions about the track. I was expecting someone to ask a few things to try and better their own personal best.

I'm also close to getting TT #1. I almost had it 3 times but fumbled the last lap under the pressure. The way I see it the first lap is 20.32 ~ 20.48 and the other 4 are 19.32 ~ 19.48 without that tricky BR (Coincidence that they're exactly 1 second apart on both ends), so a pilot has about 0.80 seconds of error room on the low end and 0.05 on the high end. Any times outside of those I'd consider sloppy. I also switched to AG-Sys+ just to abuse its thrust at the beginning which is a big help. I'll get that spot from yeldar and elois, there's no quitting until it's done!

I was about to have a crack at that TT myself actually. Nice to see someone else analysing a TT in a similar manner to myself.

Good stuff :+

You asked for questions, I'll oblige :P

Do you do a BR at the bottom of the first hill after you enter the tunnel? From what I've seen, some of the top players don't even bother on Phantom.

24th August 2011, 06:19 PM
Well Mod Forward isn't my expertise, but I'd have to say that depends on how well you handle your ship. Just know it's the next corner that makes some people think twice about BR'ing there. If you can manage BR'ing into it and still get a really quick inside turn on that next corner then it's worth doing. I usually don't myself, but now that you've mentioned it I'm going to try and get that down soon.

Last thing I'd suggest is don't use an Icaras unless that's your usual ship. Its top speed isn't worth sacrificing good handling - in the sense that you know how the ship will respond - for on Modesto either direction.

@yeldar, You have to let me take first before you make it even harder!

Game on Mr Frail :mr-t

Yay TT competition. Happy days :)

Your turn yeldar, I finally managed to nab that Time Trial after so much sweat and blood.

1.38.34, just barely a tenth of a second faster.



And that finally means I have SR, Multiplayer, SL, and TT #1. My WipEout dreams have come true!

I HATE that track. Modesto Height's normal is already hard to me, now imagine the reverse one. In fact all Pure reversed tracks are a royal pain in the a** to me...

10th November 2011, 11:57 AM
Haha, thanks guys.

I'm working on Time Trial, I think I managed to get 4th on it but man restarting the track after every screw up gets frustrating.

Awesome! we have a winner! Good work! Can't believe your the same guy who played with me some days ago.Remember we we're both struggling for the 1st place...(or was it 2nd? I remember someone really good joined,but i think you left right before he showed up) So,if you had a WR in your favorite track,I can probably get one in my favorite track! :g

Stay cool,

10th November 2011, 12:58 PM
Lol oryx.I was so nervous yesterday i was crashing in every wall! There's a long time I'm wanting to play with yeldar,that was the day :g

I was getting on pos. 3000 or something in all races,there's some time I don't play on Phantom,sethbird keeps on inviting me to his venom rooms and now I'm too used to it...I will do some Phantom speed laps to train and we can play again soon :)

ah hehe well yeldar is a fast man that he is I was angry with myself for not being able to perform better but hey... being drunk doesnt exactly improve your skills.

10th November 2011, 02:34 PM
Great work Frailavi :+

Very well deserved indeed.

You chose the right ship too ^_^

You chose the right ship too ^_^

I used Feisar once,but it's "top handling" quite of got on my nerves,i wasn't used to the high cornering difference from the EG-X to the Feisar,but i only picked it because i was scrolling through ships (going to the Piranha) but the host started the race and...yeah,that's about it.

And that finally means I have SR, Multiplayer, SL, and TT #1. My WipEout dreams have come true!

just a little effort mate ;)
