I'm slowly feeling confident enough in my skill to give some pro tips. I'd appreciate getting some pointers myself in return. Like can somebody answer if it's adviseable to use the signature trick every other time - or are there hidden diminishing returns? So here it goes...
- Grabs and grinds, when sustained, get first 'HUGE', then 'MASSIVE' (It's indicated in the HUD and 'massive' grabs cause that tremor effect). My goal is to get as many 'massive' tricks into a run without bailing. Anything but massive tricks are not worth the risk. Grinds take a long while before they pay off and hence are less attractive than grab tricks in most situations.
- In wingsuit races, don't jump. Go over the cliff with boost and deploy the wingsuit right away. Works for most chasms. Cutting corners while flying saves a lot of time.
- 'Walls' are thine friend. Use them as ramps for big air grabs whenever possible.
- Don't push jump and boost and boardpress buttons inadvertently. Keep your muscle memory in check. Try to turn all of your controller input into conscious decisions. I often catch myself loading up jump or boosting or boardpressing inadvertently, before actually having planned ahead. The loss in control is fatal.
