    You nailed it on the head there mate.

    That is the most perfect example of an online mode ruined. Ive been an avid player since International Superstar Soccer on the SNES, and is often the game of choice for "post-pub-banter", but the online mode though is truly SHOCKING. I think "The Darkness" was the only game ive played that came close to the dier lag you have to endure online.

    The whole point of Wipeout ,after you are through playing it in Campaign is to be fast,faster than before,then faster than the other racer.

    There becomes a limit to ones abilities if playing alone.

    This is where online comes in.
    You see people taking different racing lines,going for the weapon pads instead of the speed pads.....it all eventuates into a well rounded player that can usually account well for themselves on the track in the most elite of company.

    Then you have the "FREAKS" [I mean this in the most flattering way] like Leaungbok & Piraphiac.

    They post videos that we mere mortals look at and think ,you absolute BASTARD ,I'll never be able to do that,but you try anyway,and much to your surprise,you actually can pull a few of those moves off,not as well or as frequently,but it's a little win,something somebody else might not be able to do,which I suppose would make YOU the absolute BASTARD when you do pull them off in somebody else's eyes that doesn't know about them.
    It's all relative.

    The problem is where technology,not know how or ability let's you down.

    That's the hardest pill to swallow.

    A real game killer.

    I think the reason the lag in HD gets to so many people is because it is a game that requires split second timing. I've experienced worse lag/game issues in a few other games..(LBP anyone?) but it hasn't mattered as much as it does in Wipeout. For those of us who are competitive (to a degree) that made the game really infuriating.

    But like I said, I've adapted to this style of online play now, I'm just not as competitive. I still love the wipeout franchise and think HD and this community are awesome

    Guess Stinkleroy and I are both covered.

    Yeah, that was bad. I remember joining a game and I could not move at all. The game was pretty fun (I beat it), I remember watching the whole movie on the TV in there (Too bad there wasn't a fullscreen mode), some glitches and you essentially become overpowered at the end (Black hole, srsly), but the online I tried once, lagged like hell and disconnected. Fortunately it was a rent, I must say I got my money's worth at least.

    I enjoyed playing through The Darkness, as well. I'm not a big FPS guy, but when a unique one like that comes along, I can really get into it. Playing through Bioshock right now and absolutely loving it.

    Back a couple of months there was a discussion about PA (Pilot Assist) and I said that it's not that big of a deal. Two weeks ago I joined a race with PA enabled, and I think I understand what is bad about racing with it on - when in a narrow place everyone just ran me over like I was a bump in the road, and I could do anything becuase they would just bump off from the wall, ballet (sp) style and ram me instead.

    So I apologize if I sounded abit arrogant before, thankfully it is not a problem anymore
    And thank god I get lag on RARE occasions

    I think you will find that the 'diehard' players ..

    1) Respect SL, and the Wipeout Series no matter what
    2) dont actually moan about the game - especially publicly
    3) belive and trust SL, and that it will 'all come good' in the end

    I think you will find the vast majority of people who constantly post negative comments are 'newbies' who have joined WOZ since HD was released.

    thats not true mu5. as JPAP said, the diehards are saying things because they have been around for all of the other wipeout entries and we would like to see HD shine as much as 3se or XL/2097.

    ive posted negative comments plenty about HD along with many other seasoned WO vets. and im surely not a "newbie" coming into WO for the first time... 1996 my friend.

    PS- SL didnt take over WipEout until after the year 2000. before then it was psygnosis.

    Really? I always thought it was Studio Liverpool!!! Im *sure* they released wipeout 1!!

    Maybe there is some confusion here between 'die hard pilots' and 'Legendary Pilots'

    Im sure any competitive player on HD who has put in a lot of effort would like to think of themselves as 'Die Hard'. I took from the original post that he was slating the *real* 'Die hard' pilots - the 'Legends' - and I dont think that is very fair, as all they have to say is good words about HD - the mantra being SL 'will fix it soon'. Note: No toys were thrown from pram
