    Default Is Harimau the weakest craft in the game??

    I ask after a few hectic avalon races, where i was repeatedly getting knocked off the track. Every time i brushed paint with another craft I swear I was on the losing side (except elhabibs assagi, that was a real battle!) Originally I thought if you had the racing line you can essentially "shove" another craft aside, but wellingtons feisar just wasnt budging

    Not to be biast though, I got involved in a few online races using the other craft, and noticed i was happily barging my way through, especially with triakis and ag. I know it wasnt the same quality of competition, so difficult to really judge unless I was against you guys.

    Just wondered on your thoughts. No doubt everyone feels hard done by when they get crashed into regardless of ship, but hey

    Hey, my Feisar got slammed by Wellington's Feisar too !!! This isn't fair, because I am always loosing with him And it happens always when try to slam anyone. Maybe I can't just slam? I prefer more "technical" driving so it is a huge problem for me :/

    Whatever craft I use I seem to get knocked all over the place, not just the Harimau and the Assegai.

    I never understood the reason for that craft to exist. Why bother with it's weak stats? If people like the looks than just make is a skin or something. This craft feel so light and there is nothing in it that makes me, personally, pilot it.

    Every other craft feels much better to me, not to mention, there is atleast one area where each craft is strong in, but with Harimau...

    Besides, that thing looks like moulded play-doh where the colours have fused and it's stuck like that.

    not to offense anyone. sincerely i don't undertand some people, i never understand and never still, what the hell you want, end up in racing with less teams possible? i don't understand certain people around who scream " rid off harimau " " what the sense " " why there's a ship like harimau " " what its existence mean " and or whatever non-sense rant , you don't like it simply don't get it , don't use it, do not race with it...
    many people like it, i like to race with harimau for ex., why people around complains that harimau is in hd really never understand.
    why? i can tell you why, because too much people around wants to win and the thing end there, don't matter anything else, only win, some people really don't give a **** about fun
    WTF if it should be for some people future wipeouts will have 4-6 teams , cause others do not own the super magick win factor

    Harimau is good. Although it doesn't stand out in any area apart from looks, I still like it. More than Assegai (No offense) because of the awesome yellow and black skin (Assegai's are all the same sadly :/)

    But to be honest I like all the teams. They're just all so well balanced. Now if only VanUber and Tigron could pop in without being 'teh ship' that would make the family complete.

    @Darkfaerytales, I think the reason a lot of people see the Harimau as superfluous is that it has identical stats to the Assegai except for slightly weaker Thrust. So on the surface there is no reason whatsoever to use the Harimau when you can use the Assegai. My guess is that having less thrust might be seen as an advantage when you have to quickly brake after a BR, e.g. on Sebenco. But off the top of my head I don't think the TT and SL experts seem to use it much, so it's probably just there for aesthetic variation, as you say.

    OT: I seem to remember someone saying that the weaker a ship's shield stat the more it will be affected by shunting and by weapons. I can't really tell myself, but if that's true then that would explain why my Feisar stood up to your Harimau .
