    Default weapons

    I'm so sick of getting hit with so many weapons online these days that I'm honestly considering not playing online anymore. just wanted to see what your take was on it.

    Agree with you totally. Especially 1v1's. When it's just you and a randomer, and you have a clear 3 sec lead that you fought hard to get with lines, not weapons, then he just fires a rocket at you and flies past, well, that's just annoying.

    Especially when he flies out of sight and you just happen to pick up a missile that's out of range. Story of my life.

    I voted against weapons. Not because I want them removed from the game (though I wouldn't object to that), but because they're just stupidly overpowered in HD Fury in particular (Pure and Pulse also have overpowered weapons, but not so bad). The speed loss is just too much IMO.

    I agree as well.

    Normaly I fly Piranha. It has well-known less thrust. A few mines/bombs - I'm the last one immediately and if I pass someone I'll be hit by some missile or such crap and can't get away from last place.

    When I host a race without weapons, after a few tracks most of the contenders were gone.

    Weapons are for sissies, imo.
    Mines, Bomb and Quake equals scraping, pricking and hair-tearing.
    In Wip3out, I play weps off only, because you still have the possibility to do a hyperthrust, but in HD I prefer "green races" due to the Turbo.

    This is SO true. I turned weps off for a full Rapier room, 5 left after the first race (did it suddenly... ) and 2 messaged me, 1 saying "F*** you noob", and the other politely asking for weps to be turned on. The latter was Azurooth

    Hey, imagine an eliminator with weapons off...
    That would make a great WOZ-Trophy: Win an eliminator just by ramming your opponents to death, slam Žem into walls and push them off the track, if possible.
    Sweet fantasy...
