Dead drop race

The dead drop race is impossible now and way to hard for a useless piece of Mr fodder I just spent hours doing that race and now that I can't even skip 1 single gate it's garbage no one is an expert on these useless things so please stop designing things that it would take a pro to do. I now will always be missing 6k master rank because I will not subject myself to that this kind of unfair play I would like to see all of the community streamers do this race as is without them practicing for days. It's just a mess of a race

I spent 4 hours trying it and an hour of it just practicing the one spot I have a hard time with. Not many people will put that much into trying 1 thing over and over. I'm not over to just get on a forum and complain but 6 other people in my clan tried it also and couldn't do it

Is dead drop the one where you jump the massive gap?  Everyone kept telling me you have to use archwing to get across that gap but I cleared it my first run on my board without issue.

The main Deimos specific issue I encountered is that there are race sections that require grinding and the grinding on Deimos barely functions even with the mods that assist it.  The internal mechanics are just broken or poorly implemented on Deimos.

My issue with Kdrive, especially on Deimos is the poor collision detection and awful physics.  You hit one invisible pixel and go flying off your board and go ragdolling through the air in slow motion for hundreds of meters.  On a board that hovers you can hit a pebble and go flying like you have wheels and hit something with one of them.  The exaggerated physics are not only awful on top of the frustration of bad terrain and collision detection, but they don't even fit the universe.  My super agile frame that can practically fly can't do any kind of an air recovery to get out of this excruciatingly long animation?  Seriously?

All the frames are super strong, super fast, super dexterous gods right up until DE doesn't want them to be and suddenly we go from being able to fly and tear apart giant robots with our bare hands to "My invisible wheels bumped a thing and my hands don't work so I couldn't reach out to grab anything and I don't know how to move my body so I'm just going to Family Guy Corpse my way through the air in slow motion for very literally over 20 seconds.  Enjoy the wait."  It's BS.

That jump is easy though, if you have the mod for double jump.  It's sort of crappy that they build races that kind of require you to have Kdrive mods when most players want as little to do with Kdrive as possible, but that's how they do.

Read the topic and looked up the race location to go in blind. Failed the first attempt because I wasn't expecting to need to jump at the end of the "Dead Drop" grind and fell into the valley, but cleared it the second run. Overall a really fun race actually. Worst case scenario if you're struggling with the grind you could maybe fly over the root and deploy the K-drive to fall into the bubble and then jump off and redeploy again on the otherside of the gap.

k-drive build and modding?

Bro, you're responding to a comment that is almost a year old.  I have no idea what my build was at the time, but it was probably the boost speed mod, double jump and reduced fall speed, if I'm even remembering the mods correctly.  I don't know if they stuck the bulletjump replacement that they stuck on Merulina on normal Kdrives, but if they did then it should be even easier to clear.

And your actual Kdrive build doesn't matter because all those parts do the exact same thing.  Unless they've changed it in the last few months.  The only thing that matters is mods.  And if you aren't clearing that jump, it's because you either aren't building up enough momentum before hitting the jump, are jumping off in the wrong spot, or are wasting your double jump instead of timing it better.  Or you haven't modded your board at all.

Kdrives suck, but that jump isn't even an issue compared to all the other glaring flaws in the deimos races.
