    Default botched ranking online?

    just talking to yeldar about your "online rank"....some ppl are 22 plus already...people not from here and what not. not saying they arent good but how in only two days do they move up so fast....i know there are a lot of factors. i may be wrong so im not accusing but i think there could be some people possibly boosting for rank points kinda like doing an "eliminator" mode with their friends in races

    I'm already on rank 20 and I've haven't spent too much time online. I did spend the best part of yesterday racing but no more than I usually would. The people who are the higher ranks will have just been playing a lot, at least that seems to be the most likely case. For all we know they've been racing non stop since the patch launched. Even if you lose a race you get some points so everyone can get to a high rank with time.

    Wotan is playing a lot for sure. The others, yes probably stat padders.
    But in a game like WipEout where the rank is just some icon or some text, it doesn't matter as much compared to games like Killzone 2.
    Don't worry, you will be rank 50 eventually, and you can beat the padders anyways so it doesn't really matter xD

    ya its just always bugged me how ppl have to exploit things just to have a status simple that they know dam well themselves they dont deserve. it actually just happened in Worms as well, im in 1st place globals for Pro scheme. and the 2nd and 3rd place guys were stat boosting each other to try and take my top spot, then i called them on it and they stopped as soon as i rolled them both online

    Yes i played a lot during the last two night (sleepless) . i think everybody can obtain rank 50 . It just necessary to have a lot of patience .
    So i'm not interested by this ranking . I still prefer TT and SL ,which are more revealing of the skills of each .

    Edit: i'm curious of what happenned when everybody will have 50th rank

    Has anybody some of the single race records have been badly corrupted just like Pulse. Check out the single race reverse track records. 15seconds on Moa Therma for a total time, WTF!

    ya i noticed that, if you join a game to spectate depending on how long you watched you still get a global record, i was being placed way ahead of my capabilitys as a pilot like 1 minute 16 on some, didnt know that they were actually kept as records though. This needs sorting quick

    I'm a little confused looking at the rank system, whats it for? it doesn't seem to prove anything just that you've played more than the other guy? some one shed some light on it please.

    Also with this stat padding i raced seb climb (flash) todayi'm rank 8 online and rank 3 multiplayer track rank it was set to 6 laps and the guy in last place who i lapped was rank 21 online. So again what does this prove? just seems a little pointless?
