    Default Online Ranking and Pilot Assist.

    Is there a way to see rankings online on your computer? I am having a hard time reading the times on my crappy TV and I am interrested in seing who is in first, as you can't scroll up and see people above you.

    Also, Pilot Assist....I think it's totally unfair that people with PA get to be on the same boards as people who race clean.

    On a sidenote; I was trying to do campaign but my TV is so crappy (I have no remote or any other controls), that Zone was a nightmare when the red color kicked in. I had to navigate by luck and distant speedpads that were blue. Maybe this is the incentive to get a new TV?

    Maybe it's just me, but Pilot assist hurts me more than helps me.

    Hmm, so perhaps the bottom half of the table is for people with PA on, and the top half for those without? 8 D

    More seriously, just how high up the table can you get with PA on? I can see a PA challenge appearing in the Arena forum at some point in the future. 8 )

    Thereís simply no way pilot assist users are going to be able to post respectable times; it becomes a hindrance opposed to a performance booster.

    That said it has its uses when grinding out trophies if thatís your thing.

    There's also a speed penalty if assist has to pull you off the walls.

    Haha, I just played Anulpha Pass with the pilot assist on, jump on the narrow straight leading to the end of the lap and just tap left or right and watch pilot assist freak out

    Do you think there are heaps of newbies to the series online?? Because I hardly ever lose, I played all last night and never lost a tournament and probably won about 45 out of 50 races, It's great news if there are heaps of newbs playing as wipeout lost it's mainstream appeal for awhile, So im betting Wipeout HD is good enough to bring it back.

    Have anyone else noticed that something like three out of five additionally seem to clueless that they don't start races they host, even with a full room?
    I just took a quick twenty minutes online, and I ended up in no less than seven rooms - with seven different hosts - where they were just sitting there until people started leaving, and still nothing happened.
    I only managed to get four actual races done.
