I got into the habit of crashing people BECAUSE other people would do it to me a lot more times than not.
Especially since I've been trying to unlock all the engine mods/paints I've yet to unlock, and a sh*tload of my losses (when i actually TRY at that) are from skilless buttf*cks clipping my car. Got tired of turning the other cheek, so I just started clipping people myself.
Not to mention, catch-up is complete garbage, if you got first place after escaping a huge pile-up consisting of every other player, or if you're neck&neck with someone and your rival smashes into a guardrail, then you should already have that race in the bag. But no, you get punished because everyone else sucks. Then the guy in second place, miles behind, uses this handicap to get upclose to you, and sure enough, he'll probably clip you, and congrats, you've just received another undeserved loss. Catch-up also defeats the purpose of modding your car, I put these engine upgrades in here to make my car FASTER, so I can do BETTER in races, not to have some tool sneak restrictors into it that trigger when i'm either doing too well, or he's doing completely horrible.
but of course, clipping is something i only do to randoms, because more than likely, they're thinking about doing it to me
it's not something i do in a lobby full of people i know
