    A+ challenges open after 25+ rank. With each rank you get new challenge.

    As for usage of stick or d-pad, I prefer the letter, for it gives me better control of steering, stick is too loose for me. But I am no super racer, maybe I'm wrong. )))

    Qirex speed is faster and Altima is not the track where handling is of top priority. And qirex speed's handling is ok anyway. IMHO, of course. )))

    Well, I am still on rank 13. So it will take some time.

    Thing is, I only started playing WO on the psp with Pure. Wen GTpsp came out I switched to that. But after many years grinding the Nurnburgring, I really love WO 2048.

    I did play WO hd for quite some time, but getting some TV time with 2 young kids is not always easy

    Thank you for answering. The reward / unlocking in WO 2048 is a bit fuzzy and hard to understand. Hard, just as the game itself. But every time I boot WO 2048 I am amazed at the stunning visuals. It is the best looking Vita game.

    G-Superpilot, Mad-Ice, Leungbok and Asayyeah use D-Pad, they are quite fast too

    Chalovak : depends on the people. I personally hate the Qirex, it's a fat and heavy ship, I prefer light ones such as Feisar or Ag-S speed

    No, no, no, don't get me wrong. I totally agree with you on that matter, Qirex is heavy, but - I don't know why - only Qirex speed granted me Elite pass on this final event.

    I assume you haven't got Elite pass for every event, otherwise your rank would be higher giving you more ships to choose. In that case you could find the proper ship for yourself for that event.

    Elite for every event ??? Hell no. I think I will try to finish all the other events on normal and some perhaps on elite before I try to do the final race of 2050. On the other hand, I see that the top 10 of the world user AGS or Feisar speed ships.

    No, Elite is not a difficulty, you get Elite Pass when you complete the goal REALLY further, like finishing 1st place. If you don't Elite Pass them all, you don't get that PSVita trophy.

    I don't want to be mean... but if you can't get Elite pass easily on the campaign, be prepared to scream when you'll try A+ Challenges!
    The difficulty is REALLY higher there

    Now that you've mentioned A+ challenges again, Temet, I would like to ask this:
    What is the secret behind getting Elite pass on these challenges. Which ship is better? Should I ignore other ships and just race, trying to avoid grinding; or should I use an offensive strategy?
    I usually go with Feisar speed, but even on Queen's Mall (which is one of the easiest tracks out there) I manage to get just a Pass. Looking at global records I have a feeling that Auricom speed might help, but I need 10 more ranks to get it.
    Guess, I should concentrate on Multiplayer campagn now.

    Multiplayer campaign is a pain in the , A+ challenges are way more fun

    Well, I don't know why, but Ag-S really seems overpowered in A+.
    So, except for Capital Reach (Feisar prototype), I highly recommend you to go for Ag-S speed.

    I'm far from being a terrific wiper, so it was not an easy task to win these challenges, but I did it.
    My recommendation is to go for green pads, boosts are your friends! Autopilot can help sometimes.
    The hard part is to get in first place. Once you're in first place, no right for heavy mistake or you're screwed.

    This is fast, this is hard, this is WipEout!

    PS : Sol was the easiest track for me, by far! You can try for this one if unlocked.

    Try this track at lower speed class first to nail the first shortcut,it will give one additional barrel roll and it will come in handy if you are willing to get the Beat Zico trophy in the future.
    How can I try Altima on a lower speed class if I have not beaten the 2050 final event?

    And that is why I miss racebox so badly.
