Anyone figured out any strats? I've just been winging it.

One thing I just noticed is if you get in behind an ambulance no enemies spawn in the lane coming towards you (I think)

That's an interesting observation spacey, good stuff. Especially coming from a guy who didnt know there was a boost button Kappa

It wasn't immediately obvious to me but you can only drop a sawhorse at an intersection. Meaning it sometimes won't deploy straight away.

Also, it's best not to get hung up on out if the way monies. Just boost through to the gas/bank

anyone know if this works better with a 4-way stick?  i'm not unhappy w/ my score, but damn my 8-way seems to be a little loosey-goosey.

Impossible with an 8 way, I'd say

Literally tried 50 games w/ a 4-way, couldn't even break 40k.  Actually threw the stick across the room (this is why I don't stream).  Back to 8-way it is.

This is exactly why you SHOULD stream

Nothing makes the viewers more happy than hearing a controller break from frustration. Right Jry? :)
