    Default Omega Collection Platinum Roadblocks

    I thought I would set up a thread to help people with specific problems or road blocks preventing them from transcending. Please post any of your race related problems here, and hopefully the community can help you out with videos and advice. Consider this a general advice and trophy help thread for the Omega Collection.

    Be as specific as possible when posting a tip or problem.

    Sometimes the answer isn't as simple as git gud.

    Thank you for this! Right now I am having difficulty elite passing the zone stages in 2049 and 2050. I have elite passed all other events (race, combat, time trial). I don't know which ship to use, and the in-game records don't indicate what ships other players used. All tips and suggestions for this welcome. Thank you.

    I did this using the AG Systems Agility, but you might find it gets a little too twitchy at higher zones. The Qirex or Pir-Hana Agility may be a strangely better choice. Also, avoid the AG Systems Prototype - yes it does have by far the highest agility but it takes double damage, punishing you for even the slightest error.

    I just replied to your post in a similar thread (tips for older pilots). There is more detail in that post, but Hellfire's answer is about what it sums up to. Ag Prototype is for zone pro's only looking for top zone WR attempts; extra SS range is not worth 2X damage.

    I like the Qirex Agility for the 2048-2049 challenges because the shield stat means scrapes don't do damage and won't affect perfect zones. I only use the Ag Agility for the 2050 challenges. That stiffer handling helped me not to wobble as much on less technical tracks, and I didn't over-shoot difficult turn series as much. Keep in mind that since there are no zone specific ships, SS will be necessary for certain series (looking at you Rockaway hairpins). Also try not to get air on most tracks, but use it to your advantage for Altima and Sol where it is unavoidable because you still have some control in the air. Nose down is needed to prevent leaping of the track and can be tough to combine with steering if you aren't already use to it.

    Best tip I can give you is to try again, and again, without trying any other event in between tries. You’ll get a little bit better every time until you reach it. Try to blink regularly as your eyes tend to stay open too long.
    Also, I always used the Auricom Agility, which has a really good shield rating.

    The rest is pure skill, I think.

    Thank you for the tips everyone. I will take this and try and try and try again. I don't mind losing after all.

    Update: Managed to reach zone 80 on Sol last night. It has begun!

    I'm looking forward to utilizing these zone tips in 2048. You guys are awesome. With this forum even an old fart like me can have a chance of transcending (again).

    Honestly, the only real roadblock for me is a PSN+ subscription And I'm not willing to shell out for just one game, at least not yet.

    I will say that elite passing the Altima zone event was the biggest hurdle for me by far. I eventually managed it by using AG-Sys Agility and trying my hardest to avoid any skillcuts.

    A note about Altima, the complex turns are harder for the skill cut just before the start line, but the skill cut is way easier to fudge. The non-skill cut route has a harder entry than the skill cut does around zone 40 or so. Problem is, if you aren't used to it, it is quite tricky. I recommend choosing one or the other to begin with and stick to it.

    Thanks, I'll try it once I feel confident enough to give it a go again
