Has Lestropie disappeared? I remember the time when he was top on everything. It seems like he might have changed his gamertag or something.

Anyone know what happened to him? Or is he GlobalShockwave in disguise? http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_wink.gif

I wish Lestropie would come back. I think its crazy how he still has top 10 runs and he hasn't played in forever.

Hopefully in the next trials on 360 he comes back with a dramatic return of greatness!!! LOL

something that many people forget is that lestropie did not just get those skills he worked long and hard for them like all of us. i believe that he has a 1 in a million ability to translate his real-life trials knowledge and implement it into a video game version of trials this is just my opinion but it makes perfect sense when you break it down.

he had almost all records (some by huge margins), quit playing the game and still retained a lot of those #1s for months and months long before you got your first bronze medal, so youre opinion of him is worthless. you can call him over-rated all you like but its been about a year and a half http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_exclaim.gif since he even played the game and he is still well above your global rank.

and thats not why hes so respected. he was one of the few incredible T2SE players, he then went on to dominate THD and all the while contributed to the forum/community without ever posting **** like "just took midnight club by about 2mins lulz" - he was a class-act, all the skills and none of the ego ******** and thats why most Trials fans still look up to him.

This. And we had a ninja tournament last year, i think was the last time he played trials and he went out with a bang (http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=F30DF9F7DD667F33). This was before anybody could 0 fault those tracks, mind you.

Im higher than him on the leaderboards now but he was my idol when i was just tryin to pass Inferno 2. I even at a few points thought he was a cheater....he was just that good at the time. Not tryin to take anythin away from the top dogs nowadays, respect can only go so many ways.

You're not getting it. Sure he has top 30s now.. but these are scores he set a LONG time ago.
People say he is a legend becuase when most people were struggling to beat extremes and ninjas at the very beginning when TrialsHD was released, he seemed to have this natural ability and blew everyone away, and 0 faulted ninjas like they were nothing.

Hmmmm Weak minded fools

I have respect for Lestropie but no more than I would any other top 30 player. Most of his ranks are probaly not even below 25. Therefore, in my opinion, he certainly does not deserve more respect than that.

Wanna see Lestropie's domination again? Go to a Kindergarden playground, take a 10 yo and have him play kickball with all the lil 4 and 5 year olds. Don't get the true reference? Not my problem.


Fact of the matter is I live my life in the present and I look to the future. Most of you are still in the past. In a pathetic bubble of pretentious bs.

The brake flip thing for one.

I honestly don't care what the community thinks of him. It's pretty much a matter of opinion now. Personally, he was a huge inspiration and he's still one of my favorite riders. Nothing will change that, its like having a favorite sports team. If he doesn't show up for Trials Evo, you won't hear me talk about him.

Oh and your partially right about that one, according to Slinkys record; kyoshi yozima is the best at beginner tracks and easy because he can do those small critical things better than they(slinky,gws,jj) can, slinky I believe from what he said is that hes better or best at hard and mediums, and jj the German is the best at extremes and ninjas.

I wouldn't be surprised if Nova found it on his own as well. All I know is when I did, I was the only one in the top 50 who had it in their run. Murdoc was the first to do it properly and get 1st using it.

Jealousy...

Les is a legend of Trials. As said before, he picked the perfect time to stop playing.
He mastered in a matter of months what it took for the top riders now, to master in a year. Chances are, if Lestropie carried on playing for the same amount everyone else did, he would be top. His consistency was incredible.

And i really hope he comes back for Evo, but by saying that, i hope he comes back better than ever to prove everyone how good he is!
And yes, i would love to race and lose against him online!

01-25-2012, 10:53 AM
this is a very interesting debate, but no one has answered the topic question..............."WHERE IS LESTROPIE"???

I think we should start a search to find him!

ive been looking all over the internet, on various gaming forums, and have found nothing which is very dissapointing.

why would such a good player just stop playing.....? ok i understand that when he left, he was top of his game, but the addictive nature of trials must surely mean he would want to get his no1 spots back?

And from what i can tell, he totally just disappeared not only from trials but also from the forum?

I shall continue my search, and if i find any trace of him, i'll let you all know! http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_e_smile.gif

Lestropie, well I don't know the guy. But still, we know he was in an accident when he was riding a bike since he does it in real life, damaged the back of his eye, not sure if he has gone blind or not... Unknown.

But it could just be down to he's not into trials or he's done what he wanted. He had nothing else to prove.

He didn't have the passion? Maybe who knows... It would be cool to see him playing but still you might never get to see that again. So don't get your hopes up!

you cant find someone who doesn't want to be found!

i did find this though

http://www.gametracker.com/player/Lestropie/173.199.80.198:25230/

not entirely sure what this website does, or what it means, but it would indicate that lestropie last played battlefield 3 sometime last november? it also has a little australian flag so it could be him.

presuming it is "lestropie" this would indicate that he was still playing xbox last year in november. mabe he's just given up on trials.

I agree with HighDeff. Most people don't understand the top skills, so they should stop drooling over something they don't understand (especially when Lestropie has been outmatched).

It's the same in chess. The noobs talk about Fischer like he still exists and is no. 1. He's a dead dinasour and instead of talking about a player who was rated 2700, they should discuss players rated 1700 who would still effortlessly smash them into the ground.

I doubt it. People have a belief he would bring a certain awe to Evolution. That's nonesense. We have world-class speedrunners and the lesser speedrunners also contribute to the community. I like to think I bring a bit of awe for others with my BFTP run.

No one needs Lestropie to feel awe, inspiration, or admiration. I'm sure Lestropie would say the same.

We certainly do have some amazing players in this community, but people who watched Lestropie's runs back when they were the fastest times will always feel like he is THE Trials HD rider. It may not be fair to some of the great riders around now, but by doing all of the things he did in HD before anyone else, he truly did inspire people to try and do better.

Most of the fastest runs today use some variation of a technique that Lestropie pioneered. These are also the guys that are the most vocal about how BAD Lestropie is at Trials HD.

And you are correct, Lestropie doesn't want the spotlight. He acts in a humble manner, which only serves to make him a much more likable guy. Some people post every time they beat their previous time by 0.001 of a second. Lestropie didn't do that. He would talk to you and try to help you be a better player instead of saying "you are bad at this game", or "you suck".

He was the subject of a Game Informer interview where, instead of calling everyone noobs, he acted in the same humble manner that he used when dealing with everyone else.

He may no longer be The Best In The World at Trials HD, but he was a great ambassador for this community and I am actually sad that he doesn't come around that much. Some people could really learn from his example.

Anyhow, that is his legacy and why many people in this community are inspired by him, nothing that anyone who didn't know him says or does will change how people perceive him.

Sure, he's just a gamer, and this is just a game, but his legacy in Trials HD is assured.

Don't get me wrong. I too would like to see Lestropie blast from the past.

I sent Lestropie a private message not long back. He read it, so I don't know, show your love if you want him back.

Interesting! I didn't even know this existed. I bought the game a little late, about Dec. 09, and didn't even join the community until much later.

Here is a link to the post with pictures of the Game Informer article -- http://www.redlynxtrials.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=20409&sid=53b03e9d35295f85fc236dffdcbb0416

I have to admit, I find it almost humorous how he has such a 'common' name, but his skill is anything but common.

Ahh Lestropie...the good old days before I could even finish an extreme track! How times have changed...basically Lestropie is the Tony Hawk of Trials HD. He pushed the boundaries and people still remember him long after he has retired!

Exactly, I think that the Tony Hawk analogy has been made before. The Hawkman was the first to successfully land a 900, others have done better, but he pushed the boundaries for his time.

Same principle.

Some credit needs to be given to the current greats at Trials HD, like GSW, Murdoc, JJ, (and others) hell Kevin's meteoric rise on the leaderboards is another point of inspiration. Kev went up damned fast.
