    the lobbies are international and well the countdown starts on it's on (if you get 15 seconds that's what has happened otherwise it's 5 seconds) after a while, a very short while if you have 8 players in the lobby though I'd suggest picking a ship you can play with on all tracks comfortably, as icaras doesn't really give you much of an edge, ship choice is pretty much all about personal preference, especially on phantom.

    try adding some people you feel like racing with from wipeoutzone though and you'll definitely find some good conversations

    Ah, so that's what's happening, do the maps cycle randomly too then?

    With the physics changes I'll probably end up switching back over to Harimau. I've noticed Icarus lost its definitative pre-patch advantage now that air breaking makes you lose so much more speed. I preferred the psuedo-drifting system in place before... I suppose this makes better handling ships more viable now that I should be primarily using standard turning, but it's still a pain to relearn the sharp corners.

    My PSN is temporary and is more of a joke account to learn the new physics before I go for my run. That said, you can add me if you want as it's always nice to play with some familiar faces. ID is To​My​Fallen​Homies.


    Edit: ...I can't do this ever again. Anyways Icaras still feels like the way to go.

    Hi fast pilots

    I think I've raced most of you before. You're all very nice people. See you on the tracks sometime

    Regarding the 15 second counter: I'm not sure how many people are aware but it's a real pain for server hosts. It's supposed to start the game automatically if the host idles for a little while, but it doesn't actually check if you are idle. So the host ends up going into the menus to change their ship or the game settings, but after 5 or so seconds the counter starts on it's own, forcefully taking them out of the menus and back to the main screen, where they have to deactivate the counter and try again. This happened to me. :x

    A small correction.

    The countdown timer won't start if the host changes the game settings. but it will if he wants to change ships. Odd.

    Aside from a case which someone sent me a hate mail for defeating him/her several times at Chenghou Project reversed on Phantom, I see the Wipeout community as healthy and mature. It's one of those fan-bases which I'm glad to be part of it.

    Finally got my first races online. Don't know if any of you guys were racing with me (PSN id: Gekko_P), but well, you were absolutely right. Gorgeous experience overall, and I have to say beating pilots with 74 and 101 badges makes me proud. Though I didn't chat with anybody so far, hope to catch some of you online soon.

    When the next Ozone event is planned and ready, then you'll have a chance to chat galore.
