    Today I (almost) managed to crash together 2 Quakes
    Playing Eliminator on Metropia, I suddenly heard "Quake!", I picked up nearest weapon pad and what I got? Quake ]:> So quick flip and waiting for the incoming evil wave.
    - Eat that! - I shouted when quake was in front of me, I pressed Square and... Nothing happened... The Quake hit me and flew further AND after that MY quake fired up

    Hmm... So many quakes in my post...

    My guess is that two quakes pass each other with no effect at all. They just carry on in their respective direction. When will we get a lasso weapon!?! It would be awesome to catch 3 or 4 opponents on a straight section of a track and throw them backwards! I would also like to get a small speed boost since I'm "stealing" some of their momentum. It would be an awesome weapon... Right?

    The old force barrier weapon from WO3 can be used in a way that's a bit like that, making the ships that hit it bounce back, though the barrier only covers about half the track width. And you can pass through it yourself with no effect. But you don't get any energy from the other ships.

    a few days ago i raced against XBARNSTERX (100%1 of the best i've ever played with!), it was MPSR/MOA<</phantom; we fought a great battle with almost no weapons at all. almost every lap he got AP just b4 magstrip and used it to overtake me in the loop, so he guessed (viaPM) AP is a fantastic way to gain a higher speed during the MOA-magstrip-section.
    he found a new advanced technique.
    un4tunetly it doesn't work on METROPIA-magstrip, not sure about CHENGOU<<.

    Yeah JF they where some great games mate, neck an neck most of the time.
    Metropia doesnt work because ap runs you down the middle missing the pads
    Both mags on moa work fine, not sure about the first on reverse though.
    Chenghou works
    I'll have to check on talons, i dont think it would work there. To be able to hit all pads anyway.
    Second mag on amphi works, no pads
    Same goes for modesto, only a small mag there so nothing gained really.

    Anyway mate look forward to race you soon

    Edit.. is there even pads on the mag on talons, lol im not sure.

    Found out the other night when playing eliminator online that if you pick up a quake when another quake is active you can't fire it! It seems like 2 quakes can't be active at the same time. If you press square, the quake is fired automatically as soon as possible.

    Ive always found using AP on mag strips kinda "scrabbles" the nav system. For a split second, your ship gets all "wobbly" and then straightens out.

    @abukii, you just need to learn when/where to activate it and when to disengage .
    Takes a bit of practice

    Aha! So that's what happened when I quaked myself the other day
    I fired the quake, nothing happened for two seconds, and then it fired from where I was when I hit square the first time, which was now behind me. Instant death.
    And about autopilots BR'ing - it's happened to me several times on Sebenco rev, Metropia reverse and once on Vineta fwd. Why it happens I don't know, but I would guess it's the AP 'accidentally' doing a l-r-l while trying to keep me on the track.
