    On a very good day I would be a 5, on a bad day aound 2 or 3.

    It also depends on the opposition- good players make be push harder and I can sometimes surprise myself- I once had a nailbiting race against Sinus1 on Seb reverse where I won by a tenth of a second and I was dead chuffed (this was when Sinus1 was at level 50).

    Slightly off topic but when is the best time to 'see' and race against WZ pilots? I would race for ages and never come across anyone from here- and do all WZ pilots race Phantom?

    Poll perfectly fitting to few threads recently posted through the zone that i don't feel myself really incline to post in.
    Not that i have something against you Jasmin ( you work in Paris weekkdays : you can't be bad ) but it's typically a topic which leads to non-sense : What do you expect answers from everyone? Fake humility from guys who are the complete opposite on their continuous posts, true arrogant saying : ' i'm dominating' or free 'polite' congratulations from others...

    @JJ: TBH i thought my vote was pretty accurate. I went on the description rather than the actual 'rankings' of the choices though.
    Also, is this based on people in their prime or at this moment in time?

    This reminds me of TGS (Teh Greenix Scale). Anyone else remember that?

    Well Jasmin, I don't love the idea to rate myself. I'm just someone who loves what he is
    doing. That's it.

    Default Satelite :P

    Online, I'm a 6/7, including TTs that I really set my mind to I think I'm a 7, and the occasional TT/SL I could be an 8, if I had the time and a little more skill to beat Elois.

    I think that's an honest assessment of where I am, based on the excessive time I've spent playing this game.

    Unfortunately this thread ignores the Greenix scale, the standard measurement of WipEout HD skill. Look it up, it's most entertaining. I remember the days when I and yeldar were both a 7 on the Greenix scale. Ah how I wish we were still even.

    EDIT: Bugger, yeldar beat me to it on the Greenix scale while I was correcting my grammar. Grr!

    I'm skilled. My only flaws preventing me from improving more (for now) are my inconsistency and being short-fused. I also have a slight tendency to choke under-pressure, mostly when im winning against top dogs

    But other than that, i know how to handle most of the ships and tracks. I think im efficient in managing and using strategically my weapons and items. This said, the more i learn about WipEout, the more i see i know nothing xD Once, i thought i was great, among the elite, but i watched gameplay footage of Yeldar, Hellfire, TCK, etc., and i saw i was not that great, and far from it... hehe. But, like people say, you can't really improve unless you mesure yourself to the best!

    I perfectly agree with Arnaud !

    Whatever i think about my level (on wipeout and other stuffs), i always prefer to explain myself with acts and let the others judge than trying to convince people with words. We are sometimes the worst judge of what we deserve

    @asayyeah..post is meant to be fun.hopefuly it wont be abused like the other threads you speak of where it ends in flames and bans.

    @yeldar..

    to be honest as far as i am concerned every player in the world cup is an elite in my books save a few like me who were not really good enough to compete on the same level.

    as for legendary players i would comfortably say you are one as i have played you in games with others (as i put it elite players) who beat me as bad as you beat them putting you above many.as well as you in top 5 of nearly every leaderboard for TT and SL.

    i would say there are only a small handful of legendary players that i am aware of.

    @problem solver..im happy you play for fun..me too.

    I remember he gave me 8 back in the day, I wish you two were still 7.

    Your right Asa, too many threads with the 'look how good i am' thing going on.

    Voted 7. Elite.

    I'd say people like Wotan, yeldar, reach-big are Legend.
