    Ive played online about four times on ZP2 and when setting options I set the game on 5 min instead of a point race. With only a 5 percent penalty for ball loss it seems more enjoyable for some reason. I know what you mean caper, that would be frustrating if it happens often.

      I found a multiplayer game on Marvel's the Avengers with the target set to a paltry 1 million, so I thought I'd enter the game, chose the Hawkeye ball and immediately scored a skillshot for 1 million, game won. I played again, did the same trick and got the 1 million skillshot again, game lasting just a few seconds. Everybody quit after that, including myself.

      But you can see how the multiplayer can be abused. I got 200 points in just 15 seconds. The top player has 99,190 points on that table. By my calculations that will take him/her just over two hours, assuming they hit the skillshot with Hawkeye every time and assuming the other players stay with him. Considering how easy it is to get a friend with a PSN account to help out, it sounds very plausible.

        Co-op multiplay!?

        Is it possible to co-op on a game over the network? Where player one commands L1 and player two R1 perhaps. Or maybe the first ball gets played by player one while second player watches the game and second ball goesn to second player and last and third to the one that got the most score?

        This would make the game look pretty original while it gets two people to actively get involved in the same game.
        When talking about the unknown... Anything is possible.

          I like the controlling of R1 and L1 idea, it's kind of like a multi-player mode in Tetris I think, total team work. It could have separate scoreboards for it and everything

            Nice idea, but I can't see how it would work. There is a delay when going over the internet, and that delay will just kill it.

              True, but every game has lag if you're playing online, you just gotta live with it.

                You are 110% right... still wouldn't you go for a game of this kind with a friend? I think you would. I have survived a wife keep telling me to stop playing (in various ways), I think I'll survive a bit lag too.

                How would it work to co-op with a buddy from same city or even country would it still lag much?

                  Separate scoreboards sounds just delicious.
