    I haven't seen Wizardplay since HD/Fury on PS3. But onlykpop is still around. He goes by celestialemotion now.

    That would explain the run in and close loss I had with them the other day! Glad to know it's him.

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.

    ahhh the modesty, that old friend xD

    btw, talking about phantom, i find your 'just' a bit diminutive, sounding like it's the easiest speed class.

    Well, it's a lot easier to learn Venom than Phantom, but it's also a lot easier to master Phantom than Venom, because of all the advanced SS/BR combo stuff Venom offers. No offense intended here, just a very straight explanation of how i see it.

    Agreed. Take nothing away from phantom racers though, to nail the lines consistently is very skilful.

    I'm so glad the slow rollers crowd came out! I totally agree with just about all the points you guys (Booney and JF) are making. I'm average to slightly better than average at Phantom. I've spent more time devoted to learning how to be an acrobat.

    It is SOOO much easier to learn venom and SOOO much more difficult to master. In my experience, to succeed on venom, you have to pretty much take risks all the time that will cause you to lose to an average pilot if you mess up. Those shortcuts require precision, as do the triple rolls. At least with Phantom if you slide out of a line you can recover. One missed shortcut and it's game over on venom!

    I'd love to do a Venom Masters thing. I don't mind fighting for 3rd place. Do you guys feel that with all the rolls that sometimes you feel like you are racing at Flash or even Rapier speed on average for a track with lots of rolls?

    Would love a venom masters tournament, standard racing and some pure racing too.
