The math has been done. The most expensive super advanced ultra high tech flying hover bike is about as fast as Usain Bolt, a human, can run. My car tops out at about 6 times faster. It is absurdly and annoyingly slow.
I just like seeing math in forums. The number crunching is pretty cool imo.

Usain Bolt can only run that speed for short bursts. Try running at that speed for several miles.
Your car tops out at higher speeds but you also have to be more careful on how you navigate. One wrong turn and your dead. They could change that as well. Careful what you wish for
:P

Does ANY MMO have that? I'm not familiar with any.

The game can barely draw the game's highly detailed worlds fast enough for the speeders we have now. There's no way they can make them much faster without you riding off into the matrix whenever you speed off on one.

Sorry, it's just not possible with this kind of game. Racing games cheat by not drawing out the entire world, leaving graphic holes in places where you cannot go, etc.. There is no way to use those kind of design cheats in a MMO built to this degree of detail.

Champions Online and City of Heroes both have movement powers that are much faster than any TOR speeders.

You can pretty easily bike (pedal bike that is) at that speed indefinately though.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Sorry to nitpick.... but ...... Not on the ground, only in the air. There are no air mounts in this game at this time. IF air mounts ever come, then would be a good time to boost speed to 300% on air travel.

A more valid complaint about mount speeds in this game would be along the lines of 90/100/110 diminishing returns on mount speeds. The difference between 90 and 110 is small, yet the cost is very large (unless you have the referral speeder, and legacy perk and are speeding at 110 at level 10).
I'm back..... in advance of KotFE.

And MUCH more fun.

If you didnt smile the first time your character superspeeded or took off in flight in CoH you probably dont have a soul.

110% of your running speed does make it more of a bike than a car. I wouldnt mind if they made a 150% or so but more is really not necessary.
