    I think I've encountered one of these sheepies before. When I was playing WHD at my friend's house, some random racer kept sitting on the weapons pads and shooting all sorts of annoying things just to eliminate the others. Even though there may be a small 'friendly' tone to their messages, it's so freaking irritating since you can't do anything about it.

    Umm, correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought this thread was about friendly interaction between community members? Yet nearly half the posts are talking about someone you find irritating There is actually an opposite thread somewhere in this forum talking about people who are annoying, can we keep this one positive?

    I love everybody who races nicely, and even better the ones who exchange pleasantries after many close races. When you're not a top player, it's more difficult to find people close to your skill level(as in, you can't guess skill level by rank like the 101s can, lol), and when it happens it's like finding a blood brother, you know? "Yay, somebody skill-impaired at the same level as I!!!" Even if been exchanging bombs for two hours, any language can understand a message with a "" and a "thank you for the races" in it. Not that I do that often, just for special pilots.
    Gekko, just jump right in, it's amazing what you learn by watching the top players lap you!

    Well skill level does factor in the races but personal ability is truly the key. Elite racers are not invincible, you just need to practice and believe in your abilities and master them. That way, skill level doesn't factor it as much and abilities step in to play. Of course I'm not saying that a pilot on level 1 could easily beat a pilot on level 101 but you never know...

    Hmm... I'm pretty sure personal ability is skill. It may also be the ability to learn faster in the circumstance, but regardless, that's still a skill too.

    I'm talking about the level you're on in WipEout HD, the number of your rank. let me rephrase that, "Well your level in rank does factor in the races but personal ability is truly the key."

    I think it's worth remembering that there are loads of hardcore HD players that don't come on here. And loads that visit as guests, but don't post. As long as you're polite and courteous to people you'll always get on fine.

    In fact the other week I had a really funny encounter with somebody in an Elim room. The lad who beat me (can't remember his name) send me a pretty abrasive message, lording it up "You got pwned sucker!!" or something . Over the course of our conversation I ground him into submission by basically being really nice, and refusing to argue.

    Eventually he had no choice but reciprocate, and we got on just fine. One nil.

    Just started the online yesterday for the first time and while I didn't have any messaged conversations with people, the experience was pretty great. Nobody trashing each other in messages, no rage quitting, some good long sessions... all in all a very enjoyable experience. It was also a pleasant surprise to find I wasn't finishing at the bottom of every race which is what I had expected coming into it. I'm still not a fan of how luck based 'weapons on' matches are which put me near last a few times and other times let me beat clearly superior pilots with 4-5 seconds to spare. It keeps the matches interesting I guess.

    The only thing I'd mention is give me a few seconds after you switch tracks (not naming names). At Phantom I lamely can't use Icarus effectively on every track, and it'd be nice if I was given a few seconds to switch ships if I need to. It's odd we're not able to do that in the 15 second count down.

    Oh and is the lobby I see international? I only had one chance to select a server region, but that lobby seemed to have people from everywhere.
