    Usually the US servers are a lot of Combat/Eliminator anyway. Did those a few times to get the Destroyer of 50 ship trophy then split. Combat ain't my thang. I see a lot of Venom and Flash lobbies in the UK, and I always feel bad joining them because a lot of new pilots hang there. I prefer slower speeds because I like the technical barrel roll challenges of slower speeds. I think because of my flag, I get underestimated too.

    Example: A few days ago I got a PM from someone that was obviously owning the lobby until I showed up. After I joined, I was winning by a mean time of about 8 seconds with a standard deviation of about 2 seconds. He PM'd he and said that "I wasn't expecting skills like that from a US pilot, Thnx for races " Sent a new friend request immediately.

    Is this a common thing? When you see a US pilot is the sentiment that we are easy targets? I only look for UK lobbies now, because truth be told, the competition is way more fierce in EU. There are a few ace pilots here that are decent. Kronicreaper is pretty decent as well as some others that aren't on my friend list, but I wish pilots like Wizardplay and Onlykpop would show up!

    Also, are there any "elite" pilots that don't race Phantom? I don't see many elite pilots on lower speed classes which is a shame. I'm not up to snuff yet on Phantom, but I really love some close Venom/Flash barrel roll until you explode races.

    Well, 'texasalex' and me almost never playing phantom, 2 world class grand masters, who love the technical aspect of the lower classes Phantom has not so many hard BR-combos, as Venom, Flash and even Rapier have. Rapier is my favorite online class, for SL and TT i prefer Venom. Phantom is just being good with lines + a BR here and there and you can fight for the win. In Venom up to Rapier good lines simply aren't enough, you've to know all the secret stuff to go for the crushing win.

    JF, for just tonight, you win the internet.

    we should start a club! I think that it is far more challenging to race at a slower speed with the average speed of the next class up. When I race venom, I typically on average am racing at near Flash speed all the time with all the BRs. We need a High Rollers club. Count me in for a good Venom session sometime

    Well, even though this is also my credo, you have to admit that Phantom class has advanced in the last 3 years, where having good lines is not enough to be on top of the ladder anymore, at least as far as speedlaps are concerned. There have been a lot of extra double or triple rolls introduced which are also hard to perform. I know online multiplayer isnt s much affected by that progression because the player tend to be more conservative in that mode, but imo it is necessary to be mentioned.
    Still, Venom FTW!!

    I would love to be in a tournament. But Microsoft influenced Sony into making Paid Online . I cant convince my dad into buying Ps Plus.

    i wonder if ps plus is the reason omega online isnt so active

    on the first leaderboard in 2048 campaign, there are 115k players, also not everyone played 2048, so maybe make that 125k?
    however on online leaderboards, theres just 26k people, if you finish one match, you will be registered to that board. like... 4/5 didnt play online at all?

    it used to be pretty active at release, like 45+ lobbies during peak time (all regions)

    however nowadays during peak time, its just 15+ (only eu is active now, the other regions are a ghost town)

    hopefully future sales/and free on ps plus can make the online more active.

    I wish they re-introduced the Purchasable Online Passes for a game (alongside PS+). For people who do not have much time to play or don't play many different games, PS+ is a bit of a waste of money, which is why i think most people don't get it.
    A network pass for a single game you like to play online doesn't expire either whereas PS+ does, it kinda kills the online community, which is a bummer :/

    I was talking to my brother the other day about how when HD/Fury was out all I did was play Phantom multiplayer. Nothing else except a SL now and again. This time around I'm only doing TTs/SLs on 2048 and I haven't even touched HD or multiplayer yet!

    I fully intend to, there's just so much content (and a full time job to go to!) that I just haven't found myself online yet.

    @Ciper
    100% agree with PS+. I don't play enough games online to warrant it, but I keep paying for it.

    I personally only got PS+ for online play and online saves. They really should do a budget PS+ (call it "PS=" for lols) that is $30 for a year, but doesn't have cloud saves or free games and is only for online play. I've downloaded 3 games ever from PS+ and I don't play them (with Life is Strange being the one exception).

    Cloud saves are really useful, but it is so situational that it justify the cost. I pretty much just used it to transfer characters from PS3 Borderlands to PS4 Handsome Jack collection. If my PS4 ever dies, I might be very happy I have all those cloudsaves, but then I'd need a new PS4.
