    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.
    Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh thank you! I was trying to boost as soon as possible, and getting rinsed by the AI (on Elite). I did a perfect set of laps, hit every pad possible and still came 4th. Now I might be able to keep up!

    got a problem,
    can you solve it?

    the barrier warning is in the middle of the screen,
    ok i want to know there are zone barriers, but i would like to see them to avoid them...

    edit : @ Rezzy : going faster and you can pass over more pads faster too...

    Holy! Everything turns out to be so good. Zone Battle is awesome! Hell, it
    works! There is competition and the thing about risk and reward works as
    well. Nice! I like it.

    At the moment, I have only minor things to complain;
    - *barrier, barrier, barrier, ...* xD, perhaps there might be a
    better solution
    - the barriers remain for too long
    - can't distinguish a barrier behind another one
    - *perfect lap* cuts / delays the *barrier* voice as well as
    *target attainable* voice
    - only zone 55? Eh?
    - wanna play Zone Battle as a tournament


    Have you all played the new ZONE-only tracks? They are mind-blowing right
    from the start. All these structures ... ... nice! It's like an enhanced
    ZONE experience. And the new color schemes are as smooth as the given
    track itself.

    I actually reached SUPERSONIC on Syncopia;



    The coloring looks superb.

    Thanks for posting the info Reezy, that is really going to solve the problem I was having. I was trying to win the ZB events in the campaign on Elite at first, and was already 4-5 zones behind by the end of the first lap.

    So It's better to save the boost then use it right away, as the amount you get per pad increases the more you have saved. Great stuff.

    And the perfect zones/laps stuff is pretty important to winning on Elite I believe.

    I quite enjoy Zone Mode. I'm not the biggest fan of the 4 forward only tracks tho. The design behind them is awesome, but they sorta just feel like they where added on for the hell of it. But they're still fun to play on.

    About the Zone battle "power bar" - is there any advantage to letting it charge up, or might I just as well activate it as soon as I have +0.3?

    Edit: Disregard. I get it now

    @ProblemSolver :
    oh hell yeah, Zone tacks are awesome, and challenging too with turn that requir much skill : you cannot only steer, but too much airbrake and it's the inner wall...

    Supersonic on Syncopia, you didn't waste your time, very nice!

    about zone battle : Modesto reverse is hard, because of many double speed pads, there are barriers every where!

    That's only unless you release your own ZONE blast [circle] you can overtake every craft and beat it within seconds

    Depending on what ZONE you are at & how many speed pads you have run over ,well ,depending on timing of release you can beat ZONE BATTLE with one press of a button

    Just reached Mach1 on syncopia, all I can say is WOW :O
    It's like you're racing in the dark with headlights on your ship. Dunno if I can make it to supersonic.. but that looks fantastic too judging from Problemsolver's pic.

    Online zone battle doesn't contribute towards your online rank
    I won 4 in a row and my rank bar didn't go up even a tiny bit. Shame.
