Total Bullshit....

Im playing a level. Sewage plant or something where water squirts you up in the air. Im trying for gold but have noticed it luck based. The water squirts me in positions that are impossible for me to land. Anyone got any tips to try a do this other than luck!

Are you using the Phoenix Evo? I was getting killed using that bike and switched to the Scorpion and it was a breeze.

If you're using the Scorpion, then I have this tip: do better!

Reading this makes me realize I shouldn't get this. I sucked with the demo.

It's not luck. Watch the top guy's replay. He planned every bit of his run. There's an obvious skill difference between him and myself, but watching it made me to realize I just need to figure it out.

Finally a sensible response.



THIS GAME IS NOT LUCK BASED.

Learn the tracks, learn the bikes and get better. I don't understand why most people are expecting to be trials Gods right off the bat.

Seems it is a bit. There was a level where a platform fired me across and everytime it didnt fire me far enough the randomly after 15+ attempts it worked and i didnt do anything different.

Feel your pain, this level beat me earlier today, all gold in that part but that one. the water bits just mess me up they fling you in completely different ways every time, its rather hard to predict & so i just keep failing.

Bit annoying, shouldn't be so random

You are probably talking about the track suspense, where the platform launches you across a big gap (you are up in the clouds). I guarantee you were rolling too far down the platform. You need to slow down so it launches at more of an upwards angle rather than horizontally.

I would say that Trials is 90% skill/practice/memorizing tracks and 10% luck. And by luck, I mean just making a quick reaction and managing to save a possible fault. And if you keep landing on those gaps in Sewage Plant, how about slowing down so you dont even launch over them and then just drive across them? Thats what I ended up doing in my platinum medal run.

Not 100% sure, but I think you just go to the map leaderboards and you can watch the people's trial run.

View the leaderboards for a specific track, press "Y" on someone in the top 5000 and you can view their replay.

I don't think it's just the Top 5000. I've got a run where I'm 5858 and I can watch the replay, and a friend who is at 8901 and I can watch it. Think it's 10,000 now; not like it would matter to watch 10,000 replays, haha.

I agree. Sure, it might seem like it, but it all comes down to knowing how fast to hit a jump, which jumps to avoid, and how to keep control of your bike. I'm no Trials Master, but I consider myself pretty good. I'm the top of the 20 or so of my friends I have who have the game.

What direction the jets push you also depends on
How your rider is sitting. If you lean back, you flip back,
Try and hit it as level as possible and it is better.
Also for landing in the gap, you have to slow down a tad
to hot it right.

I just got gold on this one. I had the most difficulty with the last water blast. I found you have go with a 360 flip but clearing it is pretty much luck. Keep at it, it's doable!

I'd say it's fair enough to say some levels are luck based. The two the OP mentioned sure took me a lot of tries to even be able to land. Take that sky catapult thing for example. I'd be in the exact same space and have the exact same positioning on my bike, but I'd only get over the jump about 25% of the time.

The rider has four stances but are you sure you had the same speed in both situations, if a game is not luck based but timing based it's Trials.

The first few times I played sewage plant I got annoyed for the same reasons as you, then I realised if you play the same way, the same things will happen.

It's not luck, it's just finding the right angle/speed/whatever. You need patience, not luck, it didn't even take me 5 minutes to figure out how the water jets worked and to work around them so I didn't go flying in random places.

I hate to see you play the flatline levels, though i will admit seeing a video to how the level is being done especially could really give an idea and makes it easier (for me, atleast since im used to the physics of the game alot now)

I too had to practice this a couple of times before getting used to it, just slow down before the final 3 steam/water pumps and you'll be fine
