    Default Favourite & Most hated tracks.

    Yes ladies and gents this is the Pulse thread for you most loved and hated track. Here are mine

    Favorite: Tech De Ra/ Moa Therma white & black

    It was love at first race on Tech De Ra really, you can build up so much speed on this track its just fantastic, I'm a fan of the transparent track idea too so I love that area of the circuit. Finally the way the white run ends with 2 sharp turns you better be paying attention! Moa Therma I just really enjoy also can't decide which one I like more at this point.

    Hated: Basilico white & black and any other form it might appear in

    Whats this? Another one of Clarkos efforts?

    As a matter of fact, Basilico is one of my favourites. Love the speedy black variant and the almost straight line through the chicanes in White. Also, the Neo-Tokyo style surroundings alone keep me going there.

    I find it hard to decide on THE favourite track, though. Tech De Ra is awesome, yes, as are Platinum Rush White, Metropia (B & W) Vertigo White and Talon*s Junction (W & B). However, I definitely don't like De Konstruct! I just don't get the flow on the bigger part of its length.

    Well, seeing I haven't even reached Phantom grid yet, it's a bit too early to tell. I think only Phantom shows how well a track is balanced and its architecture. Although all Zone events so far have proven that all tracks are perfectly playable @1000kph, there are once again some that are a real b*tch. But nothing that would make you pull your hair out like Silverstream or Citta Nuovo, except, well, for Outpost 7, especially its Black run is close to those old threats
    I mentioned my favourites already, Basilico Black is one of them now too thanks to the amazing mag strip corkscrew section (only surpassed by Metropia B's vertical drop) and Vertica White for pure speed.

    Yeah, I'm a fan of Basilico too. Well, certainly the White version. Actually I think my faourite might actually be Moa Therma. It feels the most distinctive to me in terms of both layout and visuals. I love it. Platinum Rush White is another fave and both Verticas.

    My least favourite is hard to tell yet but so far I'd say Outpost 7. Not a bad track by any means and carries a few grat features over from some of the Pure tracks but in both layout and appearance it doesn't feel like a 'last track' if you know what I mean. I guess I was hoping for something that made me go 'wow'.

    Love Fort Gale too but I find it a bit of a tease - the outdoor looks absolutely stunning but you only catch glimpses of it as you go in and out of tunnels. Would love to have been more exposed to the elements.

    Overall, I'm a huge fan of the tracks in Pulse. It's clear a huge amount of effort went into the design.

    I think if anything gave me a kick in the bollocks like Silverstream did it's Outpost 7

    Favourite so far is Platinum Rush, closely followed by Moa Therma. Just don't ask me to do Zone on Platinum Rush, I'm still having nightmares over that one

    Favorite: Platinum Rush - The most well implimented technical track I've seen in a wipeout game yet. Tech De Ra - This track is just beutiful, and the speed you can gain on it is lovely.

    Hate: Basilico - See Platinum Rush but replace 'well' with 'badly'.

    Love/Hate: Outpost 7, untill I develop a proper racing line I know I'm going to have nightmares, but the second I've got a decent racing line, as a feisar pilot, I'm going to love it to bits.

    Not that i have the speed here, because i don't, but Tech de Ra is fantastic.... i just love the Layout & the transparent tracks, and the tunnels etc. I also like Moa Therma. As for the others, i haven't reached that far yet.

    Good thing you mentioned it, Dogg Thang: Fort Gale looks absolutely beautiful, yes! Probably the prettiest one of the new pack, if you ask me. Love the Black run for its more technical approach.

    favourite is probably metropia black, love that plummet
    least favourite against AI is possibly fort gale. it's a gorgeous track, but there's no way to escape weapons fire. haven't tried it multiplayer yet

    Yeah Fort Gale is pretty tight and it can get hectic when the AI start firing off their weapons. While there's nothing that compares to Pure's Citta Novua in terms of psycho AI, there are quite a few tracks in Pulse that have the AI riled up something rotten.

    But one thing I really like about Fort Gale is that it feels really substantial. The tracks in Pure and Pulse have been shorter and, as a result, have fewer parts to negotiate but Fort Gale, for whatever reason, feels very meaty. Is it longer?

    Actually that's one of my slight disappointments with Outpost 7. It's really just two sections - u-turn, u-turn then scary bridge. Or scary bridge then u-turn, u-turn if you're going the other way. It feels really short. To describe a classic track or even the likes of Fort Gale in similar terms would take much longer. Silverstream is one of the meatiest tracks in WO history but going from memory it sort of goes like this - first split, sharp join, u-turn, huge climb, fast descent, second split, hard weave, sharp join, fast arrows designed to plough you into the wall. And that's just describes one route.

    I do like the scary bridge section in Outpost 7. It's like that Delta track I've forgotten the name of.

    I also love that big open section in Arc Prime.
