Some races are easy to do because you clearly have the next checkpoint in view.
With some of the recent beetle races (especially the one in Kourna, I think it's a training race?) it seems they added "hide and seek" into the "race with an unsteerable mount" "fun".
Having to race with the beetle is bad enough if you're not used to it (since it can barely turn), but trying to find the next checkpoing while trying not to run into a wall is getting me close to having to buy a new keyboard (because I almost smashed this one).
But maybe I'm not seeing the obvious? Is there something that actually tells me where the next checkpoint is?
At a time, I liked my account name. But by now I'd prefer to use my character name - Rejutka Lupex.
I guess on Tyria, an account name is like a tattoo - hard to change, almost impossible to remove :-)
