    Koleax: Unfortunately, welcome to a year ago when I found out that "Contender Eliminated" didn't mean the same thing as it usually did.
    Why is there a respawn? Because they couldn't make it work without bugs when the game host was eliminated and felt like leaving the game.
    They said they would work on an option some time in the future. Welcome to the present, one year later.

    Just upset all the time arent you DD777?

    In my opinion all the things they say they would do and what they actualy did totally outweighs the former.

    Bugs, eh? I wonder what other annoying things about WOHD that are not bugs are actually because of avoiding bugs.

    What happens when the host leaves in the middle of a race now? Does the whole race end?

    With more than 2 players, nothing happens to the race if host leaves. Another player is selected by the game to host when everyone get back to pre-race screen. If its a 1 on 1 race, the race ends if the host leaves cuz you cant race alone actually

    What a strange problem, then. I wonder if it's related to spectator mode and its respective weirdness, which may also be related to why we can't save replays.

    Or, all these considerations could just be indications that no one actually worked on this area.

    No you just have this Really Snide way of getting your point across. And I know for a fact that Lance picked up on it too. Just enjoy the game for what it is?

    Right. I have played WipEout for well over 300 hours but have not enjoyed a single moment of it?

    Please don't be ridiculous

    If I didn't enjoy the game for what it is (A damn fine racing game mind you, and one of the last few challenging games and worth owning if you have a PS3), why would I be here?

    But of course, selectively go ahead and read my posts... Never mind the fact that I praised the game multiple times in the past for the amount of content, the graphics, the challenge, and the overall quality. Stating it could still be better is apparently soooo wrong that I am not allowed to do so by some rule you made up in your mind.

    WipEout HD can still be better than what it is. Look at how good it is. Imagine that, but better. Can you picture how incredible that would be? Why do you think I push for that often? Exactly, because it would be incredible. Mind blowing. Out of this world. WipEout HD is so close to perfection. Imagine it being perfect. Don't you even want that?

    Why am I not simply saying this then? Because it's been over a year, and the treatment given to us loyal fans has been far lower than sub par. Sure, we got DLC, but not a peep since then. How long did it take to get the leaderboards fixed? Yeah, a few months, and they are fixed only because the blu-ray version has come out. I feel we've been treated like **** to be honest, and for a very long time. Pulse (where's mah DLC), and then HD (hello, bugs?). I'm starting to think Sony doesn't really care, so sorry if I go on with my comments about it having lasted a year.

    Oh and lastly, you're not so much better mister BigMouth. You've angered a fair share of the members here yourself. Like to Lance, I will suggest you actually try and have something to back yourself up. Good night.

    wipeout does have bugs but nothing near the quantity many other games have.

    the only thing i dont understand is game makers always seem to get plonkers to test their games...now if SL gave wipeoutzone members a copy of hd and fury to test before they released it i bet their would be no bugs left..which means better finished product and less money spent fixing broken stuff for sony..

    i noticed this issues many times before with other games.

    Indeed jasmin! I completely agree with this. It's a proven thing that beta testing only makes a better product in the end. Unfortunately the practise is uncommon because it's hard for a business to hand out freebies and still be viable. But yes, the few bugs in WipEout HD would have been eradicated completely had many expert players been exploring the tracks throughout the development process. You can never have enough testers, and though the actual job of being a video game tester sucks (Repeat a thousand times walking into this wall), a beta tester is fun. You get to play the game and give your feedback to the developers, an awesome feeling. You are actually contributing to the game. This is really good, unfortunately outside of indy studios the practise is quite uncommon and only done for really big budget titles (Of which WipEout HD isn't a part of, though it can certainly rival with them!)
