    Default Xx333xxx-xx1/xx3.... WTF

    Anybody played those two guys lately? Xx333xxx-xx1/xx3 or some like that?
    What a bolony, let me tell you that!
    They are ****ing up my game online since two days...
    What they do is easy I think, one is ridding a heavy armed ship while the other a more responsive one.
    One stick on the front of you preventing you to take any option, while the other one stick behind you collect option and fire at you.
    Then the first one brakes, and you think 'I gonna make it', turns out he is loaded with some that he will fire at you, then the other one get on the front and do the same again...and again and again....
    I think i have seen one guy passing them, once....and thats all.....

    Anybody having them ruining their game, or Im old school and that is totally normal?

    That doesn't sound nice although I have to give them credit for being clever.
    At any rate, can't you choose a different game in the lobby?

    I would, but lately the lobby is kinda deserted...assumed people were into 2048 now...so we have 6 to 8 player max everyday playing single race or tournament.
    But I give them the credits to be really clever on that way of playing...still tho it aint racing anymore...not much.

    A technically clever but annoying tactic, but stick them on Phantom speed and I guarantee you that they won't stand a chance.

    Practice some speed lap and time trial. I've raced them, they're not particularly fast. Admittedly didn't have much time to test, there may have been a double rage quit 3 races down the line

    You can try to be clever all you want, but in this game, speed rules all.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. This tactic wont work at Rapier and above I'm pretty sure. The ships go too fast for slowing down and blowing **** up to work effectively.
    Other than that, kids eh. Their name tags don't suggest otherwise.

    I have been popping on here and there. But, in the US, HD is deserted as hell. Met a couple guys who did the same type of thing, but when the speed went to Rapier or Phantom..... :~

    Granted I'm nowhere near where I was skill wise a couple years ago, especially at Phantom.

    I shall look out for said clowns online, I usually race at Phantom though or Rapier if it isn't available. Might be worth a wonder into flash etc with a Triakis, hello lads

    "Spectated" a race or 3 with these guys in yesterday out of curiosity. They seem very efficient at what they do and between them blew the absolute living crap out of the normally pretty fast lone pilot in the game. Was tempted to have a go at the challenge of beating them but with a ds3 now at almost £50 a pop to replace, i decided not to risk a ds3/wall interface event in what looked like a pretty frustrating experience and left them to it. Have to give them kudos for the teamwork but would love to see them get some of the same treatment from a similarly organised team. But then.... who wants to practice being an ***hole?
