I wonder what's wrong with those kids to damage those wangan cabinets just because those stuffs doesn't belong to them.

If those cabinets belong to them at home or their properties, i'm sure they won't have done that. We play the game and not abuse the machines.

I see no point to slam the wheel or even to bang the cabinets just to win a game. Really silly of them. Kids these days are really a headache. Really poor upbringing.

Btw, i saw many kids in TKA star factory jurong point abusing the 3dx plus machines in the past but now hardly go there so not sure about the condition of the new mt 4 cabinets. The management there always warn those kids only but didn;t take any action. I really pity those cabinets.

@roponggi: the MT4 machines in jurong point so far are still safe, some kids there does slam the machines but the machines are still fine, jurong points has tons of kids with SSS rename evo 8,9 and RX-8 with the mindset of this 3 cars are the best, i always go there to get stars with "junk cars"

I see. I haven't been there for a long time...

Yes those kids think that those popular cars like evo and rx8 are good only just because the so called pro players at there use those cars.

They also prefer evo and rx8 because it's easier to play to them and also because other players hardly use other unpopular brands so they follow this trend. Monkey see monkey do biz. :lol:

I see , thanks for the reply !!

What bothers me is the amount of ah-bengs playing this game .. not only do they damage the cabinets but they also hog the seat for as long as they want , switching between members in their group , sometimes the whole row is members of the group ..

Hate having to wait for them to finish their game to finally sit down and play story mode .. -.-

Thats why i asked , to avoid these places and go to slightly isolated ones .. :D

at least mines were somewhat intact probably losing a few ghost wins but grimsolace's and Grisbane's case is too painful

A bit off topic but recruiting people for a team.

Requirements
Able to drive all tracks
Friendly
Positive attitude
Basic blocking skills

A good timing on minato mirai time attack will be good as well.

why must whore on Mirai just like Osaka on DX?


base on the requirements ... any tom dick or harry can join ...

no wonder the new blood has no etiquette

on my checks ... Namco servers hasnt roll back anything ...
but what i can tell u guys is this ... Internet is a messy place to begin with ...

E.g.
Connecting to a server say from Singapore to Japan

<What you see>
- Connected

<What you think>
- Connecting directly from Singapore - Taiwan - Japan

<What it really is>
- Connected

<What you dont know>
- Connecting directly from Singapore - Hong Kong - Ukraine - United Kingdom - US - Japan

for Australia, the hop should be, Telstra - Indonesia - Singapore - Taiwan - Japan but instead depending on the ISP configuration it can be Telstra - South America - US - Taiwan - Japan

if there is signal dropping ... a re-connection is needed but it will not warrant a (RETRY) screen

- This is one side of the picture ...

It could be TZ's own network having a problem ... you will never know ...

Maybe server has data hiccups on a target station... and it's more feasible but the rollbacks on two guys were evident and it is pretty weird

and yeah if they ever did a data rollback more like millions will scream in rage for that :ph34r2:

Cos just starting out ma. Later too strict then cannot find people. And mirai is not exactly a requirement, only an added bonus to secure positions if there are a lot of applicants(which I doubt)

How do you have team etiquette? I want to learn the way of how this works in the scene here.

more likely is that the server did not receive updates timely from the arcade .... which will be the likely case ...

every team has their own rules and regulations ...

like mine ... even if you are the best in the world but you do not have a good personality ... u are out ...

we can have players who suck at MT but having a good nature of a person ....

lastly, the only absurd requirement in my team is that out of the 40 members, you must get an approval of more than 80% and team leader does not do recruitment ... only the recruitment section of the team does it ...

in my team, we look at the person ... not the game ...

I also look at person. That's why got 1 apprentice in training. Just that we don't really have the time to help more than one.

That's why an important requirement is friendly attitude.

For me I have to do recruitment cos my "team" too small to have a recruitment branch lol.

I'm coming more on the perspective of adaptability to new tracks to see if one is able to learn new tracks fast rather than bandwagoning the track.

It's also a good place to fish out those fake renames that can't play mirai for nuts.

honestly speaking, i have yet to see a team that does not stereotype against an individual just cause afew in the team doesnt like for some personal reason(includes see dont like rdy). And more importantly, countless in teams sees themselves as professionals against individuals just cause they have teams, sorry to say ive came across too much ppl just cause they are affiliated with TRD in some way they feel the need to start shit on other ppl with proof of borrowed cars from TCS. Its not hard to question was that how the legendary TRD operates... Thats the only problem i see in teams but otherwise its actually all good and healthy on competitive side.

Nah joining teams is a serious business.
Something social aspects is good but there are too many factors needed and stuff.

Usually its made by a bunch of friends close and regulars, newbies joining might be a bit difference feel and tension can happen.

i not sure how this operates but definitely you dunno how recruitment operates in every team ... recruitment for what i know is very similar for those previous teams that i know of (requirement: 1 v 1 against team leader and win at least 2 games with any members) ... their team leader will make the final decision and as for the new teams ... i dun bother since they dun last very long ... chances of them lasting more than 6 months is good and 3 years is a wonder

not surprising with them ... expected from them ...

strange as you put it ... during MT1 to MT2 ... I remembered the unanimous rule was that no one other than the team member can use a team car ... if you see a person using U.F.W and not a U.F.W member ... either the card is stolen or picked up by someone ... so a counter check is necessary ... (During MT2 .... dupes are readily available and done by the arcade technicians ... this is something that not everyone knows)

even as a new member, the other teams will want to test their newcomers ... its more like an initiation ... its very common during MT2 era ...

every team although we differs, we stand together ... very different from the teams now ...

even we organized a meet up, we still say hi to each other unlike those new teams which we have no idea of ... not to mention whether a simple manners is instilled into them or not

QUOTE
Its not hard to question was that how the legendary TRD operates


sounds like a compliment but our operations has been always doing things together as a team, win as a team, lose as a team ... we like to take what others perceived as trash and train them up

lastly ... when we train someone, it doesn't mean that they belong to our team ... every individual has to go thru the recruitment department ...

it depends but on the general front ... yes ... thats the case ...

for mine ... we have a different way ... a way that will make you show ur true self ... we are not interested in superficial individuals ... we are only interested in individuals that can comfortably show their real self to us ...
