Competition Central / Re: Sonic R question

D'you basically mean that, contrary to what Sprint is saying, you would be forced to submit for everything if you really wanted to compete seriously, and that with so many divisions it'd be more than anybody would want to do?

I agree with Sprint's last post.  As for the issue with the mastery of multiple divisions, I'll refer back to other titles. The absense of ring rankings could prove there aren't that many completionists out there to put forth the effort to go through with Sonic R.  Not many people upload ring rankings, so rings may be as important as Balloons or Tag in Sonic R's sake, but it should still be implemented in recorded rankings.

What I meant by 'absence of ring rankings' was that not many people upload ring rankings in any other Sonic game.  There aren't ring rankings in Sonic R because you can get an infinite amount of up to 999, I know that.  XP

Point being there shouldn't be too many people complaining if all divisions for each character are uploaded, since there aren't many people uploading ranks for all the divisions(I refer back to teh ring rankings as an example).

I'm often slow at calculating every bit of the details in arguments(hey, not all arguments are offensive), so thanks for correcting me, Quartz.

I'm glad others agree that something should be done about the characters.  I still don't understand why Grand Prix counts towards regular lap & course times, but whatever.  A positive note is that strategically using the speed shoes in conjunction with the shortcuts can be tricky to topple leaders, so it adds some competition.

For now, we just need the correct TA, Reverse, and whatever mode that isn't as popular as regular time crunchers.  While I enjoy Balloons and Tag, I guess they wouldn't be taken seriously in rankings.

I still can't think of anything for individual character times though.

400 divisions?  I'll try to break it down.

Characters are as follows:  Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Shado--*shot*, Robotnik, MS, MK, Tails Doll, Egg Robo, Super Sonic

That's 10 characters total from memory.  The other divisions would be as follows:  Grand Prix, Time Attack Normal, Time Attack Reverse, Balloons, and Tag. 

That's 5 other divisions.  The stages are as follows:  Resort Island, Radical City, Regal Ruin, Reactive Factory, Radiant Emerald.

That's 5 stages.  5 * 5 * 10 = 250.  There would be 250 divisions, but who really needs Tag and Balloons anyway?

Still, Super Sonic is the character to use when making records, and since for some reason people are saying it's ok to use Grand Prix mode to make records, it all seems unbalanced to me.  And correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the Saturn version was identical to the PC and Gamecube version except for the fact that the PC/GCN has weather effects.  Records-wise, it's the same.

*shot again for being such a prick about it*  XP

I just noticed it has me as registered just a couple days ago.  I guess it doesn't track a user until he/she posts.

Thanks for the greetings!  =D X:

You can nearly half the times in Grand Prix as opposed to Time Attack.  Why is Sonic R so special that it doesn't matter? 

I'm not questioning your expertise here since you're more accustomed to the site, but it seems odd that I can just wait until I'm in last on any stage, resume a lap, and get running shoes and use the speed booster to beat a (lap) record ftw.

As a follow up to Quartz' last post, I still stick by my reasoning for including individual character stats for Sonic R.  The reason Sonic Advance 3 doesn't have this is because it would be very extensive since there are a wide variety of partner/character match-ups to choose from. 

Sonic Advance 2 is pretty extensive since each character has his or her respected stats for each zone, and a few other titles.  My only guess as to why Riders doesn't have character stats is because all the characters are pretty balanced, so there's no real need.  As in Sonic R, Super Sonic "owns" every other character, even Sonic, needless to say his original identity.

I can see why there isn't a Grand Prix/Time Attack option since in the Competition Rules on the site state to use Time Attack if given the option.

It's not much of a big deal.  Sonic R is just, remarkably, my favorite game, even out of the hundreds of top quality RPGs, action titles, and other racing games.  I won't get in to why though..@.@

Oh noes, I didn't use the search engine.  I should've said 'hi' in another topic.  >.> j/k

I registered some time ago, and decided not to become a part of the forums for awhile until I was sure I would be a frequent member to the site.  Now that I've uploaded a few rankings and surfed around the boards, I feel I may as well introduce myself since I'm in this for the long run.

I can ramble like there's no tomorrow, so I'll try to get some key stuff down about me then shut my trap.  I've played the Sonic games since Sonic the Hedgehog's release back in 1991.  I made my fan character, Ice, around then as well, but of course he's gone over some simple changes since then.  I've been on teh interweb since late 1999, made a few Sonic sites(even some demos of fanmade titles), but stopped around 2003 due to my laziness.

Now I'm more active in gaming communities online.  I do dislike unneeded flames and arrogant 'veterans' kicking around noobies.  Even in more popular message boards such as GameFAQs.  Woo, a newbie made a topic that's been made 20 times already, just answer his question and move on.

That's a little about me.  Uh..crap, I rambled.  Oh well.  I have noticed all the posts that I've read so far are positive and the members here are friendly, so I'm glad to say I've enjoyed my stay so far!

Why doesn't Sonic R have character divisions?  That just creates the need for Super Sonic to be used for every division.  And as mentioned in the master list, there's no reverse lap option.

That's my only beef.
