    I bow down to ye oh generous one
    But that was some serious stickage going on with our ships.

    On a more topic related note, all my ship locations appeared to be random in yesterday's session First time I can remember not being at the back every race.

    it has nothing to do wich craft you take but i dont anderstand why pilots choose harimau because when you compare it with assagai statistics you will never choose for harimau exept if you like sweets

    I think almost everyone has noticed that now. I use and push Harimau to its limits and think that theres a lot more to ships then just the four main menu stat bars. This, however, is going off topic so if you haven't already, have a look at Haydn's thread.

    And ever since I made this thread - which was around the time the mystical update came out, I've found myself starting in more random positions which is promising

    I've been with assegai for a long time (wonder when the spear will land), but I have found myself starting all over the place, so I would conclude its random.
    Interesting harimou stats, when I tried it, it felt pretty good to fly, a little touch of assegai and some seasoning of feisar. Not a bad taste at all

    Agreed - must be random. Tournaments are different though... I reckon your position on the grid has to do with the position you finished the previous race on. First race is random, no doubt about that, but the second race starting position is the inverse of the first race finishing position. e.g finish 8th out of 8 racers, and you will start in 1st place in the second race, finish 3rd out of 8 racers and you will start 6th (3rd last) in the next race....

    I gotta disagree with you there buddy. I completed the campaign in the Harimau because I liked the feel of it, especially for phantom. Assegai just felt clunky to me, and I couldnt get a handle on it. Whereas I can only equate the feeling of the Harimau as driving a mechanical bee, light and fast with precision point turning. Just a shame theres no sting in the tail
