Guide for newfrens (1/3)
nth for diavolt
WHERE ARE THE TITS CELL? CTR HAS THE NITRO SQUAD AND BAH GAWD I WANT THE HYPER DRAG DEMONS.
You sold me OP
I'm finally getting it
>>501523You show those AI cunts who's boss.
>>501523basedkeep going anon, before you know it you'll be fucking the AI up the ass with minimal effort
thoughts on scorpio?i love its design, but feel like it's held back by its shitty top speedof course, even if its top speed was buffed it would pretty much just be a shittier diavolt, but i'd still love to see the brick become semi-viable in multiplayer
>>501778Surprisingly competitive in races because its forgiving and recovers from mines, energy walls and all the other shenanigans; though not so much time trials. Probably imo the easiest ship to control and good for learning airbrakes. Overall it's fun and i'd actually argue it's the best ship to start with because you learn how to use airbrakes and it can take a few donks into pit-wedge kun.
>>501798makes sense, i guess if anything cell is living proof that even a 2 speed ship is capable of being competitive in multiplayer races if the pilot is good enough, just kinda wish it lived up to its "fly like a brick, crash like a brick" motif more my dream scorpio stats would be 4/5 accel, 5/6 speed, 3 handling, 7 shield, 7 firepower, although that might also be considered to be *too* well-balanced, so idk, just spitballing thoughtscaptcha: GAYAA
>>500821PadAnalog, with linear curveDisable pitch on stick, and slap pitch buttons on triggers
>>501908pitch on triggers is gross feeling
>>501523Don't worry anon soon you will stop sleeping as anything less that full throttle, eyeball scorching speed is a moment wasted.
BallisticNG won this week's poll to get stickied on Saturday tomorrow. Should post deets there again like last time it won.
>>502402Will we be going up at the same time as usual?
>>502402Again? And I missed that poll again, but nice
>>502413I would assume so. That's the usual host's prerogative, but for the record: the OVN is only an hour later than the usual Race Day time anyways, so there wouldn't be any real need to delay it
>>501368Nice to hear, I tried my best to not fuck this up. Generals are a serious deal.
>>502402Steam or IP lobby?
>>502675No one knows yetif you need an IP lobby for whatever reason you can just host one.
>>502440I sure hope we won't start even later than usual. I always have to delay my usual bed time as it is.
>>501523We're all gonna make it.
Legally required to post pilot art in here
>>503098did you draw this? if so, very nice job
>>503098Did you draw this? If so, then it's shit, but it's good that you're drawing.
>>503388dont be rude anoni very much like that anon's depiction of scorpio waifu (assuming it is his)
>>503392Well I think it has a ways to go before it gets really good, and that the value would be less in how good it looks and more in that it was actually made, which is more than what could be said for other anons (if it was produced locally). It's like the Tenrai Titties and such produced by one of our gracious hosts. They get put in high regard, but I'd definitely say they aint great lookin'. What's great is that they were made and are representing creative expression and effort--especially due to being locally sourced--and I'd definitely ask for more; I just wouldn't deny that those fat badonkers are deviantart as hell.
>>503098is this supposed to be the jetbrick pilot? cute art, even if it's bad
>>503098You're damn rightAlso cutie
>>503098I love this little autist like you wouldn't believe.
>>503098people are kinda shitting on it but the body is very good, just the face is a little lopsided. Just like playing the game do it over and over until you get it ezpz
Is there another link for the custom music pack? Mediafire says access denied for copyright shit.
can i play on a pirated version?im from ukraine
>>503526You can play the SP and online if you're lucky :^) like you could yesterday
More Wipeout, Less BallisticNG related but sick art nevertheless
>>503530what do you mean if youre lucky
>>503478Some say shitty, I say soulful.
>>503563you can join direct IP lobbies with a pirated version (as long as it's the latest version, 1.2.5), but not steam lobbies and most of the time racedays are hosted in a steam lobbywe did an IP lobby yesterday though
>>503505Try again, it works
>>503572Gris swimsuit, nice
>>503572the only way is up
