    I kind of like it! It could be a new mode or challenge. Team based races like we did before between countries. The only negative thing about the two dudes is: not telling the other pilots and not placing a challenge here at the zone.

    Ever tried backfiring? Works for me.When they hit you,have a weapon prepared for backfiring (especially for the one on the front) Rockets work best,as if you hit two of them at close range they will be stopped for a quite long time.

    Not sure if this tactic will work for you,but doesn't cost anything trying it out

    they're minimum 3 different accounts, 1 & 2 & 3.
    no. 2 is the guy with the lowest skill, if racing heads up.
    no. 1 is a very good pilot , and no. 3 is fast too.

    imho the guys are cheating in doing team up against the other players. cheating, cause they don't tell the others what they're doing, although it's pretty obvious after a few weapon pads. they always race with hints on, so if u want to avoid their game, select only rooms with hints off.
    some1 mentioned their gameplay wouldn't work @ rapier, but that's exactly the class they choose most of the time

    I've come across them as well......bloody hate them for ruining perfectly good races. A few other like to stop in the middle of a race and then blow the crap out of you as you go past them - all I can say is if you are in a race then race, otherwise go and create your own eliminator event...this applies particularly to some american called weapons_ _girl.

    I competed with them, are not so strong, the only thing they do is fire their rockets.
    Another player with a similar behavior is GRAN-STRATEGGAIR, always a fake id

    GRAN -STRATEGGAIR's a weird one. He's not a bad racer, also does ZB and Elims, but the other week he turned around on a race at Talon's and went backwards firing at everybody. Not something you expect from somebody who plays a lot.

    Every time he sees me, it changes the game from single race to eliminator, just to get me out.

    Their strategy is pretty much only effective for the first 10-20 seconds of a race where everyone is close together, then again thats about as much time as you need to ensure a win. In most situations I get hit once in that time, X3 gets ahead, either out of short weapon range or in weapon hogging range and you're forced to play catch up with less energy. The other two "Xx" pilots are too far behind me to be a problem unless they quake.

    If you're the first one to the first weapon pad they have a serious problem setting up, especially if it's a good boost, bomb or mines. A shield will delay any setup they can do on the next pad (if there's one pad on that section).
    It's easier to win on tracks with dual weapon pad sections, Sebenco is a nightmare when you have 3 pilots organising mine/bomb placement, and I imagine Chenghou forward would prove difficult.

    And yeah, they always play with hints on, so use it against them.

    Ha. I joined a ZB lobby with vitamindrink the other day. It was just me and him. He changed it to a 600pt Venom eliminator and pressed start immediately. As if I was going to stick around for that? I never usually bail on someone, particularly 1vs1, but that would have been tedious.

    Re: the Xx... crew, I don't mind it really. It's fun if you're in a chat room with a couple of friends and you play against them, adds another dimension to it. It's not like they're spamming people with nasty messages or anything.
