On another note, more often than not Q forgets to spawn a minion for me to race, and I just run it alone. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Last year I never once had anyone to race. The first few races this year, nothing either. I honestly assumed it was just a "run around the track, get your prize" kinda deal until suddenly other racers started getting spawned.
I like playing this game as it presents challenge. The Fastest Game on Ice presents none. It is far too easy to beat and has now become a chore. Please, Devs, speed up my foes. Make it a challenge that I need to do my best on to succeed. I'm tired of giving them a headstart to make it interesting!!
There, fixed for you.
You can always walk instead of running by the way
Grinding for MkIV epic gear?
Ain't Nobody Got Time for That
Hm no, thanks. I still fail a fair amount of time a day, especially because of lag since the last update. It's not easy and i'm just doing it for the ship, not for the race itself, considering how much i suck at such arcade games.
It is easy indeed, but I see it as a symphatatic gesture of Cryptic. Everybody and his/her dog can get the ship now.
I make it challenging by
- giving the NPC a headstart
- trying to overlap the one who started before you
- running at top speed all the way without jumping or rolling, just turn sharp at the right moment.
The animations for sliding and stumbling are gorgeous. My thumbs are up for the devs here.
Finally, if you want a challenge, go to the group race.
