    But I didn't think I would be losing by 10+ sec on my return.
    That hurts.
    In early summer I've had a brake for 5 weeks and it took me about a month to reach the same level as before. Since Fury was released I nearly completely stopped playing WO, I don't want to know how long it would take to become competitive again now...

    depends how long you played for prior to stoping play
    it also depends on how long you stopped for
    it also depends on how much passion you have to get back into the game

    my advice is

    do a bit of zone on a easy track like syncopia to just get used to fast speeds

    then do some SL

    then do some TT

    then if you want to make sure do a few SR

    then get online to race...

    you could skip everything and just go online but you may just get frustrated when you lose games you were easily winning before you quit.but its all really down to mentality and how you handle winning/losing i guess.

    I've been away couple of times for about a month, and when I come back it takes a week or two to get "the touch" back. I go straight online because it doesn't really bother me if I lose at first. Everyone lose sometimes. I've never understood why some people get so frustrated if they don't win all the time.

    Well me and my DS3 had a falling out ever since he developed this erectile dysfunction, extenze needing, flaccid trigger. But it hasn't been all bad. I'll say more than a few races. I usually do that, just a few races already on Phantom elite. Or a tournament. And by then I'm ready to go online and mingle with the other quality racers, which there are a lot more of now by the way. Lot of new names online flying past me.

    It takes me a week of playing daily to get my touch back whenever I come back after a break. I've never been a top WO pilot, nor will I ever be. I love the series, but I like playing too many other games to ever reach that level of being an Elite pilot.

    Regardless, just remembering the little tricks you used to do without thinking, and getting your brain back into form of having split second reactions takes some time. What you have been doing during your break from the game will help. One time I took a break and played Ninja Gaiden, came back and playing that fast paced game helped improve my WO skills. Another time I played FFXII and that game destroyed my WO skills as it is so slow paced.
