    Default cheating the ZONE

    Well, there seems to be the first obvious cheat in WipEout HD ZONE. PSN user
    xtianoPL got the following result on ANULPHA PASS; 384181 points, 157 zones,
    and 2 perfect zones, which is virtually an impossible result. And I'm absolut
    certain that all Top10 zoners agree with me without any doubt.

    xtianoPL might have found a bug by accident. I think that the craft got stuck
    into a wall without damage. He then simply waited until the points added up to
    kick me (367k pts.) from rank 1.

    @SCE Studio Liverpool:
    Please contact the PSN user xtianoPL and try to fix that problem, otherwise the
    leaderboard will mess up rather soon. Thx!


    Anyways, ZONE rulz! So awwwww ... can't get enough!

    @all: My wishlist has only one entry; The uncut ZONE mode.

    Sad to see "fake" results on top of the leaderboard... I reached zone 74 yesterday... that's just my type of luck... sigh...
    But hey, Problem Solver, now you have a new goal to reach for!

    I agree there`s no way anyone would get to that speed with only 2 perfect zones. He must have had 155 imperfect zones, which would mean there`s no way he could have reached 157 without blowing up. Say he only lost 1 point of shield energy on each zone, and add the 20 shield points for the 2 perfect zones, then the max he could have got to is 123 I think. I think that logic is right.

    I think it`s definitely worth an email to SCEE/SL as Wipeout HD is an amazingly "clean" online game and should be kept that way. Hopefully it`s just a random occurrence and not a glitch in the game that can be exploited.

    yeah that's sad, obviously 157 zones with only two perfect = glitcher. might be a little presumptuous to suggest he did it deliberately although that's the explanation 99.9% of the time in these cases. shame.

    Yeah it's impossible, I've seen another such impossible time for a speed lap
    I think, the time was about 3 seconds!!!

    The best solution would be bugs removal, but that's not easy for them to fix,
    so they could add a system that checks whether a time is possible or not before
    officially posting it.

    For instance, on speed laps / races / ... take the best current times, and check
    the new time, if the time is 20% faster, then it's impossible.

    Or if the lap is 6 km and the turbo speed is 2,000 km/h then normally it would
    be impossible to run the lap under 10.8 seconds.

    New record on anulpha : 1000 zones with 3 perfects zones

    I think that score confirm the existence of one glitch on zone mode ^^

    Let's ignore all the obvious details that make that record ridiculous for a second... can anyone's brain even handle almost 3 hours of zone madness without... you know... melting? I could barely get to 80 without needing to reach for the eye drops.

    Also, since supersonic is the last named zone, wouldn't it eventually become impossible to take the corners since you wouldn't be getting handling upgrades anymore (I'd imagine around 150)?

    This glitch needs to be fixed asap with a patch, before it destroys the rankings.
    Removing scores from the leaderboard is not enough.
