    Whoa there sailors! When did I say Hazzer was the best? I'm very much an "each to their own" type.

    Tiger Woods people, Tiger Woods.

    Lol phlanj, that's brilliant!

    Harimau means "tiger" in Indonesian, Yeldar That's why we started this up! But come to think of it, if there would be a rich looking black ship with a stunning drive, maybe this would attract more females to the game? No?

    Yeah i went there


    Oh and HD Triakis is horrifying. Looks like a big green duck, with its huge duckie beak. Qwack-qwack... At least Fury Triakis looks more like the bad-ass shark tank it supposed to be!

    Harimau isnt Indonesian Yeldar it is Malaysian. Where all the Proton cars are built.

    Indonesia is Jarkata and Harimau is Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur, where the Petronas Towers are. Nice place that is, awesome place for cheap electronic shopping.

    @ Kyonshi: Common both the Triakis ships look awesome. the Triakis one is the perfect weapon for online eliminator, and it looks suit as well. Would love to buy a car one day that looks like a Triakis ship

    Malay and Indo are pretty much the same language: Harimau means Tiger in both so I'll claim it

    Shield energy is an unnecessary stat, doesn't make enough of a difference to matter.
    The old 2097 AG-Sys, now that had poor shields

    Sorry I'm finding it well hard to stay ontopic in here...

    Well last time i checked on the translator, i wrote Harimau in the Indonesian as well as Malaysian box and in english it did gave me Tiger. So case closed. Move along.

    Come to think of it; what's the meaning of other less obvious team names? Like Goteki 45, Qirex, Auricom, EG-X (i know its a fusion or EG-R and Xios though)?

    I know that Assegai is the name of a traditional African spear that Zulu warriors used in battle, among other. Fury Assegai actually have this spear-shaped design.

    Triakis is a type of shark, the houndshark precisely. Tri for "three" and akis for "sharp" or "pointed", referring to the 3-pointed teeth of those sharks. The Triakis ship actually have 3 pointed design features, being the cockpit and dual arms. The Fury version has of course the awesome shark face on the nose.

I remember Vartazian and TarotCardKiller being unstoppable with it, while they were in my team.
    Yes, I stick with HD AG when I play online. It feels better than everything else despite lacking in pace. Makes a win over fields of Icaras Furys all the more satisfying too.

    I must agree with Kyonshi about the Mirage Fury ship; It is incredible. I like the way it handles especially and it is easily one of my favorite ships now.
    PS: Honestly, though, when i see the ship at its sides, it looks like a sneaker shoe.

    Awesome! More Mirage fans!

    My Mirage has by far the most loyalty points. I started using it because it had completely average 8/8/8/8 stats, and I figured that if I found myself needing more speed, or shields, or whatever, I could easily swap the default-in-every-way Mirage for another ship that had the attributes that I needed. As it is, the Mirage has carried me all the way to the final event in Fury (which I'm almost done with).

    BTW, Goteki means "strong enemy" in Japanese. 強敵 or 剛敵. Make sure the "o" is long. Here it is in a Japanese dictionary:
