    Arrow Do you ever get carried away...

    Seriously, whenever you playing online do you get a sudden burst of aggresivness in regards to wanting to come 1st so badly

    I get too much involved with WipEout and this happens to me frequently...

    what about you guys

    not really..

    But i keep my expectations low so i enjoy online and wont quit playing just cos im not the world champion after a couple of hours online play..

    nearest i get to what u talk about is when i am in second near the end of the race and i believe i can win it..i turn it on hard and go for either blow them off the track and race safe or just do some risky flying using side shifts and anything to make me go faster.I find in these situations my brain goes quite quick so i can make a good desision..dosnt always pay off but sometimes it does..

    All the time. I get really angry and aggressive especially when I'm in races with 6 or 7 other people and I can hardly maneuver because I keep getting shoved into the wall or missiles/rockets are flying everywhere, or bombs and mines are being thrown in my face. I really wish they had an option to limit the amount of players in a race, in my opinion 4 is the perfect size.

    I get pretty violent... it's not so much out of a desire to come in first, but rather the insult I feel when I'm stuck at the back of the pack. I'm not at the top tier of pilots out there, but I don't suck either... unfortunately, sometimes I just get the short end of the stick and eat tons of weapons, or fly off the track somewhere inopportune, and it leaves me screwed for the rest of the race. THis is the most infuriating thing ever because I KNOW I can do better, but the game is just like LOL NO

    I only really start getting angry if stuff like that happens consistently... otherwise, I kinda just chill and take victories and losses in stride.

    I get REAL angry at myself in Speed Lap or Time Trial offline though. I know the bar is set high but I have this attitude of if other people can do it, so can I, so I get really psyched up when I'm trying to focus hard and shave down that 5/100ths of a second or something lol

    LOL me too. My downstairs neighbors go ape when i go on a swearing fit when im trying to get a simple trophy.

    The local GAME store staff knows me alot now since im always in there buying new PS3 controllers, since my PS3 controllers get thrown around a bit. Was soooo mad last summer that one of the PS3 controllers went out of the apartment window XD. I hope it didnt hit anyone on the head Well we are the city with the four seasons in a day i guess haha

    Rarely. I can handle a bit of the odd Cambodia here and there, however there are times when it got to a ridiculous level.

    The worst for me was going from a 6 second lead in 1st down to 8th thanks to a quake, leech beam, missile, rockets, and bomb all one after another. Then I got rammed off the edge twice - needless to say I got angry at that one.

    I thought "Ok, that was a one-off - Cambodia at that level doesn't happen often." The next 6 races were almost exactly the same. I had to leave the lobby after that and take a break to save my precious controller being thrown.

    Don't care for 1st place, just don't wanna come last... If I come 2nd before last - I'm ok with that...

    If by a combination of mad luck and some skill, I do manage to take a win - I get bloody nervous, coz I think "Schitt - I beat the pros, now they gonna lynch me" and er, they usually do... still, I dont get mad... No... Next race, I get the "Successful Pacifist" badge ROFL

    Completely agree with you, I am partial to rage quit these days...not because I want to win, all I'm bothered about is a good race. However with the amount of weapons firing around the track these days that seems impossible and is the reason I rarely play online anymore. That is the only time I ever feel angry with this game. I counted 6 quakes in one race a few days back, that was enough to send me offline again

    I enjoy the fierce competition when everyone is racing close to one another and weapons are flying all over the place. It's a good bit of fun.

    The only thing that annoys me is when the race leader is 6+ seconds ahead and still drops every mine and bomb he picks up. I get annoyed but not exactly to 'RAGE' levels. I never ragequit.

    I'm fairly content with losing. I occasionally host games and wait for players to join, and sometimes good players join up and I have to 1v1 them. Had the pleasure a week or two ago to race Ace3cube 8 times in a row because noone was joining, and was left eating dust every time. Though we weren't using weapons, we had them active, but had a mutual understanding to 'just race hard!'.
