    @okam: I must have missed your introduction thread. If you're a girl,
    you got me really good. Damn.

    @IH8YOU: You mean, I should feel like this;

    You get your chance, but don't blame me!

    I'm not really a huge fan of zone mode (which really hampers your progress as you play...), mostly becuse it takes so long to get to the interesting bit. I wish they would shorten the duration of zones 1-50 so you could get through them faster. Just a little. I feel like I've sat there for ages and am getting bored, and the announcer says "Zone 13, complete!"... gaaaaah...

    You would still have a gradual increase in speed. It just feels like a bit of a chore TBH. My feelings about zone went from "I hate this crap" to "hmm, this is allright, actually" after I could regularly get into the 50-60+ zones. 1-50 just isn't FUN for me at all.

    I'm on a little, "zone journey" as it were. Waiting for Fury to come out here in the states. I won't say what I'm doing "yet," but I thought I'd like to point out along the way out of all the jellybeans in the jar I am currently wound up next to Osama Bin Haydn on the leaderboards of my little pet project. I'll just post the scores, I thought it was interesting

    I'll check back in if I do what I'm planning on OR if I bump into some other friendly names from WOZ that need mentioning.

    @RobCox: Glad that you made it over here.

    @okam: Yeah would be cool if the speed increases just a bit faster on
    lower zones.

    @Handmdelion: "zone journey" sounds kinda cool. Tell us about your
    project!

    I'm really interested to see how all the enhanced Zone Battle crafts stack up
    against the ZONE craft. And I hope that these crafts to keep a certain (team-)
    individuality. If you look at it, the new crafts are somehow a forerunner for
    higher speed classes, don't you think? The only question is; how do they
    behave at very high speeds?

    Second, I really hope that the lag isn't killing Zone Battle. I mean, just
    imagine being somewhere in zone 75+ and someone suddenly drops a zone
    barrier. Essentially, a zone barrier is kinda of a singularity, but from the
    Fury trailer I saw that SL has lowered the order this singularity by smoothing
    it out to a certain degree. If your are going to use the boost then a zone
    barrier builds up behind your craft. If you look closely then you will see
    that this barrier remains attached for a certain amount of time. Within that
    time frame the information might be distributed to all other players. Would be
    awesome if this was the solution to get that singularity resolved. So you
    actually have some time to react on someone who is currently dropping a
    zone barrier. And I have to say, I like how these barriers detaches from the
    craft. There is a certain oscillation to it.

    I've worked out zone battle a little bit. Each speed pad you go over increases the boost guage.
    The 1st pad gives you nothing, the 2nd pad 0.3 zones worth, the 3rd takes it up to 0.6, and then things get interesting.
    Each pad after this moves the zone bar up more than the last, it might be as simple as +0.4, +0.5 etc etc. But it maxes out when you reach 8 zones.
    So the worst strategy would be to use up your zone bar every 2 speed pads: this would give you 0.3 zones per 2 speed pads, and would take 55 speed pads to go up 8 zones doing it this way.
    However it only takes 12-13 speed pads if you save it up. A massive difference.
    Of course you may want to use your bar straight away at the start of a race to get ahead and make getting perfect zones/laps easier
    These also fill up your zone bar, not sure how much yet.

    Barrel rolls also seem to add to your zone gauge - not sure how much though and of course it's at the expense of shields

    ProblemSolver himself!!

    it's very challenging to avoid barriers on zone 40 with many opponents!
