    Exclamation Unknown Pilots

    Have any of you come across any 'unknown' pilots online that are VERY quick? By unknown, I mean not on WipeoutZone and basically unheard of around the HD community.

    I was on tonight . I know rank dosnt mean a thing but a rank 2 guy in pirahna beating rank 50 guy by like 5 seconds..come on who are they fooling.

    I have played many players who i consider are using a secret id to hide there true level so as too attempt to impress new players like me when they win.

    If you r are good your rank wil reflect it, if it dosn;t then you look bad to other players, kinda like a smallfry noob hunter.

    I cant even be bothered seeking out weak players to make me feel good, instead i play and lose to people like luna and dividedxzero cos i want to learn to compete with the best.

    So I'm a small fry noob hunter, simply because my rank is 28 and not that "beloved" 50.
    Hahaha, thank you!

    Without trying to brag, I can safely say that I can teach a lesson from time to time to a lot of people on this forum, some who are very good WipEout players too.
    But small fry noob hunter as a title suits me and the people on my friends list who are also very good and at a lower rank than I very well I suppose.
    People like KIGO (11), Leungbok (14), AG-Wolf (20), ALSARTWELL (21), eLhabib (21), pirhapac (25), TehRedscar (26), AkFurtif (27), Soccermums (27), and others who are also very good friends, probably not as skilled in the game but a great part of this community nonetheless.

    You do know that Online Rank = time played online; right? It doesn't mean anything. At all.
    I've been playing online with the Zone people almost exclusively since release, and those that at the moment were not part of the Zone are now here for the most part. So no, I'm not going out of my way to beat the newbies, in fact it's their fault if they come into my game because Pilot Assist is usually disabled, to save them from even being tempted to join and lose badly and being frustrated.

    dont split hairs .firstly i never said you are a noob hunter or anyone you named, you said that and you know what i mean. everyone you mention goes under their real name so none of you are small fry noob hunters.You are all skilled players

    There is also a difference between rank 28 and rank 1 like under 5 races.

    You cant actually think that some people dont hide under secret id's to make themselves look better.

    we do libve in a nice world but its not perfect im afraid.

    oh btw i know how good you are because i watch your videos and learn your moves.(phantom elite vids)

    Sorry also forgot to mention some of these players apparently have no trophys either yet they play like an elite. So it's unlikly they could really say they were zone players or speed lap players. As they would at least of unlocked there tracks..

    Slightly off-topic, but since online rank as a unit of measurement was mentioned: What I'd love to see in lobbies is a display of the number of online races played (maybe also a win/loss ratio) next to the player's rank, or perhaps in a "pilot details" submenu. That would be a much clearer indication of what I should expect from him during the race.

    Also, it might make me comfortable knowing that rank 26 from just over 300 races isn't such a bad result as I feel now.

    Did anyone raced Kaleidoscope## (w/ ## some numbers)? Average online-time, no country flag (he got the Wipeout-flag, anyone knows what that means) , and he's really, REALLY fast. He also joined a few avalon races some weeks ago.

    @Darkdrium777: Got the impression that your are very keen in bashing this online 'ranking'?

    I've raced Kaleidoscope on two occasions. He/she is a very quick Brazilian (I think) Assegai pilot. They said they don't know why they have the 'WipEout Flag' but I'm guessing HD doesn't have all the flags in the world and Brazil is one of those excluded. It would be nice for an official explanation of the 'WipEout Flag' from SL, I've seen it a few times online and it annoys me .

    I can't name any other unknown racers, there seems to be a big amount of capable racers online these days.

    Sounds a good idea, in reality and in practice a bad idea. online ranking based on wins and losses would make wipeout a bit like some beat m up games i have played. People will pull the internet cable if they lose so it wont show on there record, some people will boost each other, some will find ways to glitch cheat, some will even buy 2 psp's and play themselves, (yes i know it's sad, but unfortunatley true), others will hide behind fake id's only using their real id's on easy wins. wipeout as it is, seems really good online with nearly all players playing good honest quality games, i hope it remains that way going forward. We all have an idea of who the true champs are without a need of a table.
