    i use all ships except icaras frequently (mostly piranha, auricom and g-45 though)
    but it seems like i never get ramming priority...ever. no matter what ship i use. so best tip is stay clear and when in doubt, use rockets to ram instead.

    @ Jimsin. No Heavier ships wont knock wm out of the way, Triakis and G45 both get stumped by Icaras' and AG Systems Crafts.

    Well that's a relief, but this implies that you reckon that there actually is some sort of ramming priority yes? The debate rages on!

    this happens to me all the time...
    also it's possible that it happens to everyone else.
    especially in the first corners of a race.
    it doesn't matter if i start 1st or last i always end up in a wall after getting rammed.
    maybe it's the lag.
    also it could be the ship but i doubt it, i'm sure i'm doing something wrong, perhaps i'm passive and not as agressive as i should be...
    maybe i need to change my strategies? i don't know...
    the only solution i ended up using is than when this happens i let go for a sec the throttle to avoid the collisions with other players.
    i think it's better than being hit and then end up hitting the wall.

    i know it's a race but it is a little frustrating in a race without weap being knocked out by someone...

    The old ADSL1 i had. had zero ramming whatsoever. However i was a ghost pretty much all the time, there are some advantages in that, flying through all the players, maintaining the best racing line possible.

    With the faster net connection ive had since the start of the year, ive had alot of ramming experiences. Which is a bloody pain. However the vista pads from the previous network connection i had nearly all the time are next to gone with the much faster ADSL2+ network connection.

    Well, I remember on Chengou Project being pushed out of the track (which of course drove me mad )... and the pilot was recording the race... so I could see his point of view... and on the video, we even didn't see him touching me... so, I tend to think that online is faaaaaaaar from perfect (don't you always see a guys that is on the other side of the track picking the weapon pad just before you... 10 meters away from him? Well, I do... a lot!).
    My conclusion : don't try to rationalize what can't be

    I thought ramming was just a technique I hadn't learned yet. I get rammed often, and usually it is so exact that it seems purposeful. For example, I will start to get pushed from the back corner until the other ship has actually caused my ship to turn almost sideways, then they just continue to keep pushing me out of the way. I always lose a ton of time from it.

    Last night, while doing a venom tournament with danterich, he actually managed to do this but it was right at the finish line and so he ended up ramming me sideways across the finish line and I got to beat him by a 10th of a second. I am not sure you can say I really won in that case... he just forced me to win. It was pretty hilarious.

    haiku, it's definitely not a technique or a skill. That happens all the time and most of us who appear to be doing it to others know nothing about it. People don't realise how messed up it is in that sense until they see something like a splitscreen video of two players and notice they're often nowhere near each other when it happens.

    If this whole phenomenon of "oblivious ramming" by those who say they are not intending to ram another pilot is put down to lag, how come certain pilots are consistently more "oblivious" than others, surely if the lag was solely to blame the ramming would be spread out over the whole field, not so isolated as to make one pilot stick out for doing it.
