    Yes, but it takes quite a lot for me to get to that point and by then I am no longer thinking about placing, full agro/revenge mode on =D. Usually my badges will either be fastest top speed or most accurate(cannons ). I've gone into rage mode when that most accurate badge becomes a destroyer badge lol. Otherwise I like to absorb/shield all the time with the occasional turbo.

    I'm sure I give more rage than I receive though. I'm as cheap as possible with the weapons in this game and I'll admit that openly.

    Pathetic as it is, I do this. I'm so insecure and jittery when I get a good lead in a strong race that I know my nerves will cause me to eat some turn or or fly off the bridge in Chenghou Project. When I score a lead like that, I will leave every bomb and mine I can get.

    One day I'll be able to keep my cool in a lead and absorb, but I play some of you WOZ pilots online and you monsters will eat every millisecond you can to catch up if you fall behind.

    Yah, I'm pretty much the same way...I get so nervous with a lead that I need all the help I can get to maintain it.

    WOHD may be the only game that doesn't make me go mental.
    Because in this type of game the best player wins.
    Sure there r moments where you are out of luck, but in Wipeout HD there is no "camp", "spam", "glitch"( well I haven't seen any really bad thing yet...) or "abuse of whatever". And it is a very punishing game by nature, and I the first things I see are my own mistakes.

    Sometimes I'll act like "oh this is ****d up, I take a piss" leaving my ship on the track

    I wud just have liked to see a ghost option

    i got carried away in my last tornament..

    first race i was in the lead cruising along then suddenly i star getting shot at with rockets quakes and al sorts of nasty things and eventually i got blown off the track..i caught up and on last bend and used aturbo and beat them with like a hundredth of a second..Every race afterwards was fought with tooth and nail with leaders changing throughout the race they won a race i won a race it ended with final race with one point between first and second and the whole tornament was decided on a rocket blast on the final stretch..

    we both got carried away and it was a battle of wills we both pulled every trick in the book to beat each other...

    held nothing back...

    it was really fun and enjoyable..i hope he liked it as much as me.

    but we both definatley got carried away..

    If I'm in front, and you're in the same race - I'm dropping everything I can mate... HD is a nice title, yes - BUT THIS IS FURY, get with it, or die trying is what I say...
    SO yeah, guilty of this myself. I love to Cannon someone to a standstill personally. But hey, If I got a bomb, or mines and I'm seconds ahead - damn straight, in the words of Snoop Doggy Doggy - "DROP IT LIKE ITS HOT"

    OH, and if i'm like 10 secs ahead, and got rockets... I'm TURNIING AROUND TO SHOOT YA HEAD ON!

    Besides, the badges are quite collectible, you know

    Well, I can enjoy the game, even if I'm not in first...

    Just getting better and getting the badges are good enough for me!

    Therein lies the problem. It wasn't always Fury. There weren't always so many bombs and mines everywhere, or weapons in general. Phrases to describe those kind of races came up because it happened sometimes, but wasn't the norm, and now it is. I think too many these days are relying on these kinds of 'tactics' which embrace those aspects of the game, which I consider slightly broken in that sense since Fury (or more likely the update just before, if memory serves).

    It's not only the game itself, we're all better at it and closer in terms of skill these days, which means more weapons in a tighter space. But surely the reason we play online is to test ourselves against each other. Shouldn't it be more about a furious race based on a passion for speed and skill? Where's the test in going to such extremes that you drop all the arse litter you can just to maintain a deficit which only prevents us racing each other in the first place? All it does is make each other furious and drives people away from the online game. I can think of quite a few who don't play online any more, simply because they got fed up with those kinds of races. Some people don't realise it, but it's true, and I for one think that many are getting a bit carried away too frequently. Is it really so important to win that we degrade the racing element so far and ruin others' enjoyment of the game? I say enjoyment, because it's not the losing the race that does my head in, it's the constant loss of momentum in a game which is, in my opinion, supposed to be largely about speed. If not, then why race at Phantom in the first place?

    To anyone who is thinking of telling me to bugger off and play a different game if I don't like the way it is, I say this:
    I could go and play a different game. I could host less popular weapons off races where half the field, particularly newer pilots, leave the game as soon as they realise. I could create private games and race like minded people who feel the same way about the weapons situation (as a lot of folk are already doing). But is that really going to help maintain an already waning online community? In a word - NO.

    It's funny you should say that, I wrote exactly the same thing as you. Word for word. Word

    Ok I didn't but it's what I would have said if I had the mental capacity to convert whatever it is that I'm thinking into words...

    Very well put Mister S, very well put indeed
