    Default Are the old records beatable now that BR's are harder to do?

    I'm just wondering if anybody else is thinking along the same lines.

    Since you had to be really good to be able to BR at some of the more obscure BR locations as the game play WAS.

    Now that it appears that BR's are a fair bit harder to do,I think the word "Unresponsive" would sum it up best in regards to what it now feels like to BR compared to pre 1.30 patch.

    Trying to do them at the trickier spots now is nigh on impossible for me [I was only just getting the hang of doing those ones,so I really noticed when not one was successful],something has changed.

    I don't know about you,but I think the TT & SL records we have now will not be broken,the handling physics of the game have changed.

    They've "moved the goal posts" so to speak.

    I don't really feel much difference in BR's. They wheres always hit and miss before anyway.

    But if indeed harder to do now, sucks if you havn't beaten Zico yet.

    Yeah RUb in the Zico That and Bling Brigade is all I need

    BR's arent much harder to do... its just you gotta adjust your timing. After about 20 races my BR's went back to normal.

    Yeldar Definately was angry over the whole BR issue

    No. Actually there is a problem with BR now. yeldar is right to be pissed. BRs can fail completely even after you mash leftrightleftrightleftrightleftrightleftrightleft like some kind of psychopath.
    I have had the same experience as him. BRs can become as unresponsive as in PurE during online races. And that's bad. Really bad.

    Online it's really annoying !
    Offline, i did some laps on several tracks, and br seems to work properly, the 3 brs on metropia and the 5 of vineta reverse as an example
    But online something else seems to have changed : weapons impact !, a single rocket shot can stops you for 3 seconds ...and no br can help you earn 3 seconds

    Your right there Leungbok. I found myself loosing my voice yelling at the TV last night with that one. Yelling at Icarus "accelerate you c u n t", have my thumb burried into the controller to a point that there was no x button. Im lost Icarus feels slow, im getting that most picked up boost pad thingy yet the bastard ship doesnt fell like its maxing out.

    Right now Wipeout HD might overtake Burnout Paradise in the highest controller breaking game avaliable.

    I'm getting mixed reports about offline play,some say it's effected like the online,others say it's not.
    There is certainly a "Stiffness" to steering now that wasn't there previously.

    I tended to get that before the 1.30 patch. Maybe I just suck at executing BRs, but I swear sometimes I'd go apeshit on that stick and NOTHING would happen

    Yeah I couldn't beleive the ship handling was different last night. I put it down to the lag monster.

    So frustrating were the mini-freezes / lag I turned it off after an hour as I couldnt handle it any more.

    I definately felt a difference when

    1) Trying to do a 'simple' BR

    2) Getting hit by a missile (I think its ever more important to let go of x and then re-apply it to try and not 'completly stop' your ship)

    I agree with you Backwiggle - if there have been any changes to the game mechanics the current records should be wiped (and fixed )

    I'm already on my third WPHD controller. I'm back to using the old Six-Axis one cause my DS3 triggers broke and the left stick was squeaky as.
