Sparrow Racing

I came up with an idea to add into The Tower, and through my time in the forums I've seen I'm not the only one suggesting this. People are asking for more entertainment factors in The Tower, duels, arenas, volleyball with the purple ball, etc. Today I present to you [b][i][u]Sparrow Racing[/u][/i][/b]. [b][i][u]Sparrow racing[/u][/i][/b] could have two different versions in [i]The Tower[/i], them being: [b]1[/b]. The typical race in which the top 3 gain currency ([i]Glimmer[/i]). This one would be always available in The Tower. [b]2[/b]. A gambling version of Sparrow Racing. Same as #1 where the top 3 win Glimmer, but spectators can place bets on the racers. This would be available several hours a day, everyday; or some other timely way (daily, weekly, etc). And besides these two racing modes, Bungie could add a custom mode where players could build their own courses. There would also be a sort of board where people can see through a list of player-made custom courses and either download or "like" (the list would be assorted from most to least likes), and implement a search function. In this custom mode players would edit everything in the race of their course, by that I mean possibly editing the Sparrow. Like length of boost, turn boost on/off, dodge on/off, dodge causing damage and how much, adding guns to the sparrow and their damage, allowing racers guns, allowing ADS if holding gun, invincible on/off. The options are [u]limitless[/u]. Give the players the freedom to make their own defining course. Please leave your thoughts in the comments and like the thread if you like the idea. [b][i][u]Show Bungie we want Sparrow Racing.[/u][/i][/b]

    I totally agree with this! I was thinking the same thing playing the game and love the mobility of the vehicle and wish I could use it more. I feel like the size of the planets aren't big enough for them and wish to see the planets become bigger. We need some Halo "The Maw" type missions but with the sparrows. But please add racing, maybe a wager system (possibly with items) or just for experience in some manner. On a side note they need to do something with the space ships!!! Take a note from 343 and do space battles. If you can buy them and have different ones do something with them instead of just a loading screen gimmick. Who knows people might like it as much as people liked Assassin Creeds boat battles

  • I think sparrow racing is a great idea. You can even hold weekly or monthly tournaments and let everyone spectate or let people watch them later. I feel that would be an awesome way to expand the community factor of destiny

  • I think an impromptu race would be awesome, all that has to be implemented is a way to tell another player who is near you to know that you want to race, chose a destination, and... [b][i]3 2 1 GO!![/i][/b]

  • Love it. Please do it Bungie. Start off with a beta by putting people into races across landscapes already made, just have routes defined by beacons, and have several checkpoints. I like the idea behind a Pike version as well. Or blind firing weapons while riding. Or side kicking. Or maybe more like Road Rash using melee. Make it competitive with top 3 placing, highest K/D earning prizes.

  • That would be crazy fun. Add some special tracks. Different effects, like low gravity, maybe add a jump move to the sparrow, Blue Shells, etc.

  • [u]Sparrow/Ship Racing -[/u] I mean this one is a no brainer. First one to make it to the end WINS. [b]A. Normal Racing:[/b] Reach the finish line (Top 3) [b]B. War Racing: [/b]First one to reach the finish line ALIVE wins. Weapons & Super Charge Enabled. [b]C. Keep Away Mode[/b]: 6v6 Each team goes for the Ghost at the center of the map. Once equipped with the Ghost , that team will hold it as long as possible while being chased by Sparrows before the time ends (Vehicle based Oddball).

    • Agreed, but you would have to find a way to equalize the sparrows so they are the dame speed and durability. Like the crucible you could have a mode where all sparrows are the same, and one where sparrow level matters.

    • As soon as I got into a sparrow I said to myself "this is perfect for racing people" I would love to see this implemented.

      • .... make it a crucible version..... with PIKES. Also, we should have the option of shooting our weapons from the sparrows.

        • Ha, I thought about this too as I was zooming around with my friends. But then I remembered I suck at racing. I know lots of people would love this though- GTA races Destiny style.

        • No. There are other more meaningful things to do. You can cruise around on a sparrow from point a to b in explore mode with your buddies.

              • Really happy to see that I'm not the only one who wants racing. I never thought of tower races before but that'd be an awesome way to do it. However, Idk if the make your own track idea would work in this game. Here's what I think. Like u said, there should be racing in the tower. Betting, quick joining, etc. There should also be the ability to challenge someone one the frontier to a destination set on the map, like a quick race ability. It would be a good alternative to dueling other players as it is something involving guardians randomly running into each other and competing for whatever reason. Either way, I'd be happy. I know that I'll verbally challenge my friends to races anyway but if actual racing is added in any way to this game I'll pee myself.
