    Default »»» Is there a "best ship" (Elite Campaign)?

    I'm not one of the best Wipeout HD players and I'm having a hard time trying to get Elite Campaign Legend. I'm on the 5th event, but now Rapier and Phantom races are starting to show up and I just can't win anymore.

    Wich ship is the recommended to deal with Rapier and Phantom Elite races? I'm trying with Icaras (higher Speed attribute), but even this way I can barely reach a Bronze Medal.

    Here's a ship status comparison graph



    Any hints on sticking to one ship, or general hints about Rapier and Phantom Elite races?

    I'd actually like to see a tier list for all the ships, similar to Street Fighter. Sadly I know too little about all 12 of them to really make one myself. -_-

    My hint is luck. I already complete the trophies but, I still have some problems beating the AI on Chenghou and Sebenco. I can tell you 1 thing. Sometimes you do great race times but the AI still beats you. But in otherwise some of my wins were with crappy times. you just have to do what you all had to do... "2nd place..." Race again etc... sometimes the AI beats you at the final straight and you will scream ugly words XD good luck mate

    ps. I used AG Systems.

    Default Well.....

    On Phantom Elite I found changing teams every now and again when I got stuck a big help. I personally was swapping between EG-X, AG Systems and Harimau although since then I found Mirage are pretty good at high speed to. I also think slower ships that handle better are a safer bet as I dont think top speed makes that big a difference when going at Phantom speed. Its pointless going fast if you cant get round corners. Id only attempt using a team like Icarus if you can get tight perfect lines consistently.

    For me, it's Feisar...I feel it's superior handling gives me just the edge I need when racing the elite AI on Phantom in stage 8. Don't get me wrong, it's still extremely tough, but it's definitely the ship I have the most luck with in that scenario.

    I went for ships with good handling mainly AG systems and on Chenghou front and reverse I found the Harimau useful.

    You need a really good first couple of laps IMO to win on elite, once you're at or near the front you seem to be able to get away with the odd mistake but not when you're near the back.

    Good luck and keep trying

    I did every race with Icaras as I thought the speed would be the edge needed to keep up with the elite AI, but its true that on some races you just need insane luck and patience. it's a shame they made the AI so damn hard, but it makes it very satisfying when you get it done.

    This is just my opinion of which craft to use for which track against the Elite AI at Rapier and Phantom speeds.
    [Well it's what I used until I got good enough so I could beat the Elite AI on every track with one craft]
    Actually,on the last grid there is a cell with an 8 race tournament at phantom speed that you have to win to get gold,not easy against elite,but AG Systems is your best bet for that challenge when you get to it.

    The same craft are also the best for the reverse of each track,good to know for the Arcade Perfect Trophy.

    Vintea K.......AG Systems.
    Ubermall It fast and maneuverable enough for the tight sections of these tracks to pass the AI.

    Moa Therma
    Analpha Pass ....Icarus,lots of straights,you need the out & out speed.
    Metropia

    C/Project
    Sebenco..... Feisar.Turning ability,keep smooth lines and beat the AI.

    No best ships, just the one you are most comfortable with.
    I used Goteki for everything. But if you're better with Feisar, well use Feisar (for example).
