    Give it a month mate. Icarus will be the most over-rated team in WO HD. Assagai is just the flavour of the month

    yes i think the same , there's something wrong in a good way with icaras , this isn't absolutely a complain ( it's one of my favourite team ever )

    I think a lot of people are defaulting to Asegai due to it's high handling and quick jump.

    Personally, I'm using Mirage as I just like the feeling. I will use Assegai if I'm playing a tourney of Chenghou, Sebenco, Sol and then the reverses, as the extra handling is mighty nice without sacrificing top end and acceleration.

    Well, in Speed Laps and Time Trials Icaras will obviously the best ship to get good times with, especially if you consider that Piranha handles like a brick and doesn't have the acceleration Icaras has. At least it seems to be that way, maybe it's too early too say. Usually a skilled player will get better times in a faster ship than a skilled player in a more maneouverable ship (say, Assegai/Mirage/Ag-Systems). Tame the beast.

    However in Multiplayer I wouldn't pick an Icaras at Phantom speeds much. Not enough shield

    Rubix, I'd say I'm the same when it comes to the feeling of a craft. I find craft like Assegai too light for me, if I'm not trying to haul the arse-end of a freight train around a corner it just doesn't feel right. But the logic is there to explain the abundance of Assegai on the grid online, most people start off in a high handling craft and see the Assegai as the perfect balance. Whether they'll ever really get to grips with the airbrakes though is another story.

    it's something strange to explain but i feel better whe i race with ship like auricom or piranha sometimes , when i use feisar for exemple i do much mistake in turns than when i race less friendly handling ship, it was more or less the same in wo3 , i like to call it " assegai syndrome " when a ship has too much handling and sensibility and tend to "overturn" when you do a turn or a corner

    don't know if i've explain myself well

    Yes you have, overturning is very easy to do in Feisar, AG, Assegai.

    Really I think it's probably because so many of the WO Zone members race Assegai, and beat people online by 10 seconds or more consistently. These people then start racing Assegai, etc, etc, etc.

    no but i mean that sometimes i get racelines wrong or smack in the turn ( or after a good turn) because of the excessive turn radius of certain ship, do you can undestand what i mean ? it happens to me in the old days of wo3 everytime i race with assegai

    I am using Mirage online due also to the good feeling i got with it.
    Offline it depends on the tracks ( icaras on easy tracks , others on hardest ones)

    And from my experience, it's easy to overdo it with a Goteki 45. It feels like a brick going into the corner... then when you think you're going to have time to avoid the inside wall when you straighten out, the 10 in acceleration kicks in and it plows you into the wall. Then if I try to correct, I usually end up overcompensating and hitting the outside wall...

    Or maybe I'm just a bad pilot? Anyway, I was struggling last night on Outpost 7 (Pulse) with Goteki 45 and Triakis. I gave the Assegai a shot, and I nailed it.

    What I can't understand is all these people flying EG-X. Is there something special about it? It seems rather mediocre to me - it isn't super fast, doesn't have super good handling, and doesn't accellerate exceptionally well.
