    Yes .
    Everything new is inferior.
    The attitude of most new racers are sadly NOT in the "LET's BE FRIENDS" mode

    It's Kill Kill Kill,you MotherF-cker,Cheat,sh1t,Arseh0le...etc.

    That's getting messages from those that have some sort of actual diction happening.

    i must admit i did it a few times back when i started playing HD; i forgot that lag could be a factor and thought that everyone had some sort of vendetta against me.
    not done it since i realised that mr.lag is the person i should really hate.
    sometimes i get angry at people using PA and say "so you want to take advantage of my poor little icarus/ag sys? welcome to my world of pain, i nicknamed it triakis"

    I never quit! - (and Ive had my arse beaten severely several times).
    Unless:
    1. The host changes speed-class milli-seconds before starting the race.
    2. Disconnections from the internet (has happened less than 5 times during the period Ive been playing WO HD).
    3. I have to wait more than 52 minutes for the "Waiting for"-screen to dissapear.
    4. My house is striked by lighting and the electricity goes bang-bang (has never happened!).
    I simply dont get why some would quit during a race because of journeys to hell or other racers - who also wants to win the race - are ramming them. Quit afterwards if its getting on your nerves. Ill suggest doing Time Trial or Speed Laps instead.
    Me myself, I would certainly do anything possible to cross the finish-line as no. 1. By wanting to do everything to win myself, I accept everything being done to me to make me the looser.

    I'm with Yeldar on this one, it used to infuriate me too and in the early days I have quit a few races due to 'rammers'. Now that I understand that its most likely due to lag, it does'nt really bother me anymore and I can keep my calm.

    Due to some rough and tumble during some Avalon races last weekend, I ended up upside down on the track twice! I just found that funny though.

    The only time I quit races is due to "real life" events. (I know, how dare something so trivial get in the way of something so important)

    Having a Mrs, 4 year old girl and 1 year old dog means that emergencies or problems can strike at any time so apologies if I do disappear.

    I still don't get the point of ramming though as surely it slows you both down allowing others to benefit. Never a tactic I've purposely employed

    I hate being rammed and i have left race's before when i've been down to 5% energy with in a lap and the guy you want to get past is weaving around trying to stop you from overtaking the just makes me mad! The only ramming i do is side shift on to the racing line if i've been hit so that i'll get rammed back up to racing speed. Works quite to lol

    Trouble like yours happens often, but then I finish good last.
    If I quit early it's usually network disconnects, or sometimes I need to do something else.

    I must have something wrong. The races I get smoked are the ones I enjoy most! It drives me to play better.

    I never emo-quit, except when my PS3 freezes or the network bricks.

    I never said anything about being rammed into the wall

    Though, I'll agree it bothers the **** out of me... I fly Qirex, I should be the one ramming people all over the track, but HD's physics engine doesn't seem to make that possible. It always feels like the other ships on the course are immovable and I'm just a paper-airplane, haven't quite grasped how to ram people and make it work for me. The only time it has any effect is when I turbo into someone's tail-end and they shoot forward, taking all my speed Being pushed around doesn't bother me enough to quit, because I've never been eliminated by it... and I figure it's par for the course for how brutal I used to be in XL and WO3.

    I usually make it a point to stay in races, like I said that was the only time I've quit in the middle of it. I totally appreciate the sentiment of seeing things through to the end, but for sake of not totally destroying the $400 paperweight I bought to play WOHD, it was necessary -_- Glad I'm not alone at least

    Amen. If im losing it means I'm
    a. racing like crap
    b. the other dude is a great pilot

    Generally its b, and to quit on a good racer is stupid and disrespectful.

    Also, what the point of quiting? not like HD has stat tracking.
