Bobsleigh Basics

Bobsleigh in Empire of Sports has been developed with a focus on high realism. All the available bobsleigh tracks are virtual reconstructions of actual real tracks. There are currently 3 game modes in bobsleigh: Skeleton, 2-Crew, and 4-Crew. While in skeleton you’re limited on shifting your weight in order to be as fast as possible, a team bob event requires every athlete to fulfill his own important responsibility.While steering and breaking has been solved on an established way (arrow keys or W,A,S,D), launching and balancing must be handled by succeession of various reactions all along the race.

 

Launch

An on-screen prompt will indicate which keys to bash in order to fill the power gauge. You need to reach at least 50%


Jumping

Once the launch sequence is finished, a new gauge will appear. You must hit [SPACE] before the ball enters the red area. The closer you are from the red area, the better your jump will be.


Piloting

To steer your sleigh, and avoid rubbing against the border, which would decrease your speed, use the left and right arrows.

Yellow and red indicators will inform you of your distance to the wall. Yellow indicates that you are close to the border, and the red indicates that you are touching the border.

 

 

 

Balance

During 2-crew or 4-crew combinations, crew members must balance their centre of gravity to assist the pilot.

Keep the ball in the middle of the balance bar, with the left and right arrows, to fill the balance gauge.
