    Question HD's AI

    Is anyone else finding the new 'Elite' AI really really hard to beat? Especially on Chenghou? it just took me about 25mins and 7 or 8 tries to beat it in the second grid....

    They do make you work, yes. I think it`s cool that you have to fly reasonably fast just to catch them. In one race I saw the leading ship holding a plasma, waiting for me to pass, so I had to make sure to take him out before I went past. Touches like that are quite impressive AI.

    I was being brutalized at the back of the field in 7th 8th place, unable to catch the leaders! it takes some extremely crafty flying and some precise weaponwork to beat them, for sure.

    While I do appreciate the really hard AI, I think it takes it a little too far sometimes. Try a race on Sebenco Climb Phantom with Elite AI and you'll know what I am talking about. They fly lines that are impossible - and I'm not saying that as a noob. I did a couple of perfect laps, all speed pads, really nice line, and still got passed by AI ships (no turbo pickups involved). Autopilots really become valuable then, when you activate them you are somehow a lot faster than racing the same line yourself. Something's not perfectly straight here...

    I like having competent AI. i found the pure/pulse AI lacking in competitiveness, and i was constantly winning races by 3 seconds or more. This AI im fighting till the end, and then some. Sure, it can be a little bullshit at times, but patches can fix obvious discrepancies, cant they?

    Elite difficulty sounds very tantalizing. My biggest complaint about XL was the AI felt brain dead, very rarely when playing Wipeout do I ever feel like I'm really working for a victory...

    Elite is really hard this time, good luck on finishing first the first time. It does take some practice, but I managed to beat them eventually. Of course it takes a good dose of luck too, you don't want to be hit by weapons' fire too much.

    I've dropped the AI down to Skilled, Elite are just too brutal and you feel like breaking something when they press the bullshit buttons.. The Skilled AI still give you a really good race without the frustration.

    Elite Ridiculously savage. So much more difficult than Pulse's Hard AI

    The AI is clearly the most advanced for a WipEout game, but there are times where I find it programmed similar to that of 2097... well not entirely...

    I feel as though still the AI is doing enough to stay in front of you for the majority of the way... where 2097 is that you couldn't get into first until "Lap X"... so if you go crap, you have no chance, but even if you are flying well, they are either still in front of you early on... and towards the end, they are right there and/or getting reasonable catch up to make sure you work for it...

    oh well, it's a challenge... and that's what it's supposed to be, but like all there are times where you feel robbed because you know that shouldn't have happened...
