    Default Most spectacular crashes?

    Everyone crashes at least once in Wipeout HD, and the game makes sure that they're as explosive and ship-throwingly powerful as possible. What are the most impressive crashes that you've had?

    Mine:

    1. Once, at Sebenco Climb, I oversteered into a corner and died. The crash made up for it, though - my Assegai spun across the sky end-over-end in slow motion, trailing fire and smoke the whole way and silhouetted black against the blue sky behind it.

    2. Today, I was racing at Chenghou Project in the Auricom, and I hit a mid-air bomb right in front of the second ramp. The screen was filled with an orange fireball, and the camera cut to the other side, where my Auricom emerged from the fire and smashed into a wall. It was pretty cool.

    I thought we already had a thread like this. Anyone? Bueller?

    Assegai definitely gets into some wild crashes.

    The latest one I can remember is Feisar going up the hill after the magstrip on Metropia Reverse and getting destroyed, the forward momentum carrying me upward seemingly without end. I was a little upset that it was online, because I'm particularly keen on that spot. I would have paused to take some pictures!

    I think it was called 'what are your most spectacular racing incidents [or accidents]' or something like that. I was hoping one of the thread readers would remember.

    Looking through that thread, it seems to be more about cool things that people did (like the time that I avoided a Quake by boosting off of a bump in the track), rather than crashes in particular. And it's several months old.

    Spectacular crashes aren't cool?
    The several months don't matter; topics can be revisited and revived, though it tends to get necro after 2 or 3 years of hibernation.

    Had one a few days back on Tech De Ra forward, did the turbo BR on the section where you can fall off both sides, and got rocketed onto a section where I got stuck, outside the track, facing the track sideways, whilst staying balanced on an adjoining pipe section - unbeleivable? check the attachment
