    Default The 1.30 PATCH POLL

    I thought I'd start a poll to see what the general feeling is about the 1.30 patch/update.

    blackwiggle I'm on late at night. I know you know that since I see you there. Honestly the first night of the update it was horrible but that's to be expected. Now when I'm on there's really not too many people on and as a result there's not many people joining or waiting on races which I believe adds to the problems inherent to the update. I'm sure if I were on earlier when the Euro guys play in mass I'd be more frustrated. Is it perfect? Absolutely not. Last night I got disconnected from the very first race of a tournament and I've never had that happen before. I get a momentary freeze which I've grown to live with and it doesn't freak me out anymore although the first few times it happened I banged wall right after it unfroze. BR's seem to be less consistent but it's so arbitrary that I can't say for sure. Spectating a race is less than desirable. Other than that I'm fairly pleased.

    I voted I like it,but problems slightly annoying

    Honestly I wish I could say what my opinion was but ever since the new patch went live I havent been able to play online with my main account and that completely discourages me from playing the game at all. It really dissapoints me because I was looking forward to playing online with the new features. Please fix this bug.

    think i am really in the minority for liking the patch

    the bad thing (lag when ppl join a race in progress) is not a game killer for me, and all the new things, especially being able to see all the races going on and thus reinvigorating online play far, far outway this issue.

    Hopefully with a bit of thought this lag can be reduced further, but even if it stays as is i think the patch overall is a good thing!

    random thought on spectator mode:
    The implementation for spectators is a bit iffy, mostly because of the fps, so maybe instead of giving cockpit views have an overhead representation of the course with ships on it, think pixel junk racers Something to reduce the impact on players is the important goal though and ghosts jumping in their cockpit is not helpful...

    too much thinking, not enough coffee, must run

    I like it,some problems, but I can live with them.

    I experienced some freezes the first night but nothing since then.
    I like some of the new functions like quick-joining with a friend, in-game invitation, or the badges.
    It's still not perfect, and something has to be done for the solo mode (AI cheating too much because ... it's a bad AI -__-) but, i like that step.

    I think everbody knows my feelings on this patch. It's ruined the game for me, not just the glitches but the infinate amount of mines and obstacles on the track make this game highly unenjoyable for me now. I mostly race against other zoners these days but even that couldn't save me last night, I just had to turn HD off before my PS3 got hurled through the window. Racing conditions are key for me, at the moment its

    I just pray these bugs get fixed as I can't see me playing for much longer if they don't.

    Pretty much anything create/made/constructed or whatever this decade technology wise shouldnt have high expectation, for example Cunty Windows Vista.

    But in this case ANY advance is an IMPROVEMENT and can be edited in the future. So it is welcome regardless of the shittyness of the problem. We'll see if these problems are resolved in the future.

    Well, I find it only slightly annoying. But if "Invites Only" werenīt a part of the new patch, I would find it absolutely horrible - (donīt get me wrong: I like every thing about the new patch; if it was working as intended, no micro-freezes, 15 mines at the final straight of Sol2 , etc.). Public rooms come almost unplayable, when there are lots of wipers in the lobby checking in and out. Lots of these annoyances are eliminated, when playing "Invites Only", but then again WO looses itīs social aspect aka meeting new players.
