    I just did a few laps on synchopia, and I think Motorsagmannen was right. It's just that points add up so fast you don't see the round 1000.

    I think points in zone do not matter so much that we have to count them. It's do or die, so you should make sure you get the points through flawless play rather than caring about instant scoring.

    Passage to venom, sub rapier, rapier... etc grants you points. Barrel rolls too. Speed pads too. Perfect laps to.

    For synchopia I hit all possible pads, do four BR first lap, then 2, then 3, then I do as much as I can until subsonic where I just drop them. I alway pull one or two accidentally anyway.

    That means no shield energy AT ALL between the last jump and the first "sharp" corner (it gets sharpish at Mach one) but as long as you do perfect laps, you're never out of shield. You get more shield then you spend in the accidental scrap or BR.

    Actually only perfect zones give you a replenish of your energy bar, not the perfect lap itself (like in Wipeout Fusion) ( i am pretty sure i am right but hey i am not an expert anymore )

    Nope, 1000 as Motorsagmannen said. And a loss of 15% of your energy.

    ^^But you are right. Perfect laps are only announced but no shield energy is given.
