    Default Are highscores reliable ?

    Hi all !

    I'm wondering if highscores are reliable ...

    In Speed Lap mode, there is someone who owns the world record of almost all races in Venom, Flash, Rapier and Phantom (!) which is truly unbelievable. But the same guy barely appears on any other rankings (multiplayer, etc.). How is it possible ? Unless the guy spends days and nights playing SOLELY Speeds Lap and no other mode, which I can't believe.

    Are there known issues of fake highscores in Wipeout HD ?

    No known issues, but most of the guys who own the top scores frequent this board, and yes, they are very fast and practice SL and TT often.

    Frankly I doubt that only one man can own nearly all the Sleep Lap records of Venom, Flash, Rapier and Phantom. He must be exploiting some glitches and that would explain why his results are so low on the other race modes (it's easier when you have 99 laps to try). Some results are insane take for example the world record in Vineta K reverse / Venom >>> 0:26:14 seconds, ie 2 SECONDS faster than the second best time in the world (0:28:26). Venom being the slowest, top scores should be close but they're not !

    I think the ghost race should be sent to Studio Liverpool everytime a world record is broken to check whether it's real or not

    Must be talking about FJ's times.

    I think all his lap times are legit, he's pretty nuts.

    I disagree about almost everything, first if someone is really good at the game,
    he's probably really good in all classes and all tracks, so it would be logical
    to have the best player(s) on top of everything.

    Also you say the gaps should be wider on phantom than venom, I disagree, because
    venom is much slower, a Barrel Roll would have that much more impact, hence
    increasing the gaps.

    +, he usually does not have a ps3 connection to internet, so he just doesnt play multiplayer often, that's all.
    He's just very very good, and plays much more than anybody here i think
