    I don't intentionally quit unless there's some imporant thing I gotta hurry for, and even then I at least try to finish the current race.

    However if I get bombarded with bombs, have mines thrown in my face like some enraged kid would throw sand on the playground, pull an Icaras on every single turn and really feel the need to ragequit, I DNF. I hit the brakes right in front of the finish line and wait the few seconds left. It's a race that doesn't deserve to be finished

    Just to clarify, I don't quit when I lose, I quit when bull**** happens and messes up my session. Like the elimination I talked about. I was second in that race and was eliminated by a noob we had lapped because he crashes into me.
    So yeah I said **** it.

    I'll agree that it can be annoying when you're about to get a 1st place global time, and the person you lap then screws you out of it - but this is to be expected! It's a game with weapons. Splosions happen!

    The only time I intentionally quit a race, is when my XMB freezes, and I only get to stare at my ship, floating idle, as people fly by. I h8 that! You can't even message people to tell them why you're not interacting, either. And after you restart, you can NEVER find that same room.

    I think that's more annoying then when people quit mid-tournament, getting kicked out of your own, and not being able to go back for redemption!

    I never understand quitters, what are they gaining by doing it?

    If I'm having a bad race and getting hit loads it does make me angry but the aim changes from wanting to win to damage limitation for me, if I'm at the back then the aim is to catch the next racer up.

    I always try and get a positive out of it, though i know it tests all our patience to the extreme, when things go from bad to worse i sometimes don't know if i should laugh or cry.

    Personally I have more time and respect for people who stick around who are being beaten badly, than people who may win one or two but then leave when they start losing, which i know happens, not so much on Phantom class which is mainly populated by people who understand the nature of the game more. But definitely on the lower classes who maybe are used to winning lots but hate losing so leave to find another less able room .

    EDIT: Besides, you may have a couple of bad races, but how many more races will you have, thousands? You win some, You lose some.

    Spot on KGB.
    Maybe the best thing is to get beaten and then still carry on trying to get better.
    When I´m racing, say Greenix, Wellington86 or Wotan999 (and a lot of other superior wipers), I know I´ll have a hard time keeping up with them.
    What should I do:
    1. Quit and pretend they don´t even exist (aka I'm - in my own little head -wiper no. 1 in the world)?
    2. Practice some more and learn from what other wipers are doing better than me?
    The answer is simple if you´ve become a WO-lunatic like me.
    Regarding ramming: I think it´s obvious that ramming just for the fun of it doesn´t make you any faster, but your opponents slower - and you wont even see the rear end of the fastest wipers.
    I dont care a f*** if i´m ramming other wipers because of sideshifting to keep my line. And if I´m side by side to, say, KGB1971 just before the finish line (not that it happens often), I wouldn´t mind doing every dirty trick to stay in front of him.
    See you on the tracks, when the smoke has dissappeared.

    I will generally finish a race no matter how much I'm failing. I avoid tournaments because it's really annoying to see yourself lose to the same people over and over without being able to pull it back in any way other than being better.
