    I'm pleased you did this - coz now I'm gonna have a bash at it this sounds like a lot of fun - at least the last 4 laps won't be just me on my jacks. 15 second headstarts mosdef ;g take out 2nd position pilot - this is tricky but even more fun

    I know I've ended up having to do the same sort of race tactic around Xmas time when there seems to be a never ending stream of newbies.

    It also helps to give them half a lap head start so they can thin themselves out a bit, what with the "pilot assist ping pong" that tends to happen in these types of fields, your far better off avoiding that mayhem and just cruise past the wreckage on lap 2

    Haha ... you know I managed to win many photofinish races this way, the art is to guess
    exactly how many seconds you should give, to win at the end of the last lap.
    So you have to know your own skills as well as the skills of the other players, the best
    is to do a normal race just before.
    And obviously it depends on the tracks too, on Sebenco you can usually give a lot more
    than Moa.

    About the "Terminator" mode, if you're much faster than the others it's easy because
    you can just go behind him and launch the rockets or plasma. But try not to show them
    too much that you're faster, otherwise they'll know it and then ally themselves against
    you (which is fun) ... or rage quit (not good), also good if they win some races.

    Like sometimes I identified a player who was much worse than the other 2, and my
    goal (game in the game) was to make him win the race!! So you had to slow down the
    other 2 players as much as possible, and never hit the 3rd one... pretty nice

    @Connavar I lol'd man, full respect to you for letting the 3rd nOOb gert a chance at winning, that made me smile...

    ... I sometimes feel like doing that also, but not really a charitable type

    I started playing online just a day or so ago after not having touched online in months. I think in just two days I went from Rank 5 to Rank 12, won a few races here and there (enough to get Connected 2) and also got the Endurance trophy. So far it's been good fun. HD has once again become my favorite game on the PS3.

    Just played a whole lot of online HD yesterday with new-ish players at levels around 5-15 (I'm at 22). The races would end up with me and one or two others fighting for the top; it was a lot of fun. Until recently, all my opponents would be around level 50 and would thrash me thoroughly.

    Particular props to one new guy from France (Mico?) who stuck it out through 10 or so Zone Battles with me; I think I won all of them. Don't feel bad; you'll be beating me soon enough!
