I can't believe I've never seen this thread before. So sorry about my thread
. I have seen the Whitelight video the moment it launched but never thought about making a thread on it until later today when I saw the Driveclub appreciation one.
Now for the game, I played the shit out of it when the beta dropped and was there day 1. At the time I was an avid racing gaming enthusiast (burnout, need for speed, gran turismo, forza, project gotham racing, Motorstorm, Mario kart). I was at the time playing exclusively MotorStorm Pacific Rift, I was max rank on it and you can only get max rank if you keep winning because of their rank system (you'd lose patent with you lost top 5 for 2 or 3 consecutive races), then Blur came to take most of my time in its place.
I loved the game, I was a member of the Luminosity clan on PS. We'd spend all the weekdays training and would fight between clans on the weekends on team-based races and some individual ones for bragging rights. I got to top 50 with the rank of 44th before the community discovered the drift turbo strategy (which took a little of the fun out of the game, because everyone was forced to use only that). I still have the contact of some players that I made friends with in real life
. I was an avid rival of DuffBier (I think his name is written like that), at the time he was top 3 on Playstation and the best German player.
