I think race/lap time will be the only element which will decide who is the winner.

40 pts
2.45.0 Lap Time
I'm back and I repaired my joystick (thanks to soldering iron and cyanoacrylate glue !), it's not perfect but the top direction is working again

My time on the last circuit sucks, especially compared to John4p, very fast time !
The luck will be a big impact to determine the podium in my humble opinion...

You don't need luck if you have enough homing missiles (or super) and nitro for the final race (I suggest you always jump over the rails - regardless if you see the train or not).

Well... I guess I'm just having bad luck then :P I haven't got crashless race yet, but always had way more than enough homers and nitros . Always somebody dropping to my head or I'm dying to some loose rear missile

Yeah, well - that's really a part where you need luck with: you can only pray your lvl 3 armor withstands it. Still brutal use of the homing missiles should minimize that risk because there won't be many cars in front of you able to fire backwards...

It's also a chance for the questionnaire (some questions doesn't work) and you can lose a lot of money...
And the price of arms, eg a nitro can cost 4 to 5 times more expensive sometimes.
In short, I strongly prefer A.T.R, which rewards primarily the driving

His strategy to avoid me at ATR was good, too bad for me
This knockout is for you jPV, congratulations
You are an excellent driver

Maybe Robosparkle out of wood otherwise the new season for lemoners could be tragic !

I actually like the trading part on it, it kept the interest while playing first tracks again and again . You have to make aggressive trading and then you'll have all the needed things in the last track. I don't fire a single missile before the last track. They're my savings and if there's something cheap, for example rear missiles under 200, sell everything else including all the engines and buy them.. next time when they're expensive sell them and in the end you have 99 homing missiles and 99 nitros and all the engines & armour In medium level you can win the races without equipment anyway...

Yeah ATR is a great game. I don't know how I've missed it before, but it certainly was a jewel to find because of the compos. I think I'll play the 3rd level set (which we haven't played in compos) just for fun.

Thanks I was trying to improve time this night too, but couldn't get perfect race at all. I wasn't sure at all if current time would be good enough, knowing your skills

All over and a big well done to jPV - anybody who can beat rexsu deserves the title in my book.

New Super League to start very soon...
