Is the a Catchup mechanic in VR
Post by iconPost by Seben | 2017-12-16 | 23:02:28

I've started the race late(4days or so ago) at the Frigate about 50nm north and 160nm behind the leaders.
It was realy easy catch up to 60nm behind the leaders an joining the south group.
Totaly new to VR - pure luck?

50:50 luck vs. weather conditions. And 75% frigate position.

We're riding the front of a weather system that can't be overtaken. Which is not always the case.

But 24 hours later the Frigate is too far behind to catch up with the leading pack.

100:0 money vs skill. I am at the moment in ranking 58 509th and with mere 600 virtual money I could be beamed up by Scott to the very top of the pack. Am I still tempted? Still going home - and dragging the fearsome frigate (pilot boat) few miles back every day.

It's too late now. Frigate is ranked around 26000 and currently about 24 hours behind the leaders.

If we assume that the frigate is placed by algorithm and not just at some random position, the weather conditions play a major role for the position you get when you start late/restart the race.

No, its not too late. You will run out of barrels and cards and thats when the frigate will pass you. And then I will pay 600 and pass you - and all the other skillful players who have invested several hundred hours in beeing in the top position. And if that doesnt happen, I will be in the middle of the pack after spending 2 minutes and 600 toy money.

You should recognize a joke when it is as obvious as this one. Sorry for the troll. Still sailing home (59 857th)

We are all a bit edgy when it comes to VR.

I know, I know my friend. That is my whole point. If you can not trust someone (VR) .....

I started in 1st place but now several thousand of you b*stards have passed me.

Time to fix the "Catchup Mechanic" so it will stop working. I liked be in 1st, if only for the nanosecond between the start and the first round of rankings.
