View Full Version : Sampa run Challenge. (WO3&WO3SE)

11th March 2008, 08:12 PM
I think that we need some WO3 competition here, so here we go.
Sampa run, Qirex craft, Rapier & Phantom classes, SR, Race time.
Both Wipeout 3 and SE pilots are eligible, but times will be presented on a different scoreboard. Challenge ends at the end of april.

Current situation:


2:50.24 (Hillo)
2:54.12 (The muse)



2:44.52(Albino Ace)

Sounds good to me! Great excuse to play some good ol' 3SE. :) Here's my first attempt on Phantom (SE): RR: 2.54.12 LP: 0.31.64

I had a go at it today, SE, phantom. 2:51.84 with the fastest lap in that race being 0:33.04.

Ah, nice times. Might have another go tonight, although constantly switching between different W'Os isn't very beneficial to my skills. :p Any other people willing to join inbetween playing Pulse?

I might give it a try, although my WO3 time lies way back and I hated Sampa Run! Especially in a Qirex :blarg

I just love Sampa Run, except for the tunnel where the track goes upwards and it's nearly impossible to NOT hit the ceiling (especially in Phantom with Qirex!).

Hmm...I haven't tried the Qirex on Sampa Run - let alone in Rapier or Phantom classes! LOL - but for me, holding down the "up" arrow on the D-pad as I traverse the hill usually lets me continue on without giving the ceiling a greeting. :P

I'll give it a shot... :)

EDIT: Just did a run on Phantom...holding down "up" to lower the front end still helps. ^_^

That is so cool to watch on Replay which I want on HD hopefully.

Good race there, I`ll try my best to play on that.

BTW, is it 3 or SE?

Thanks! It was a pretty tough run. I'm surprised I managed that... :o lol

Anyway, it was just regular 3. No SE.

You lapped the ships which is significally a good result. :+
I ll take part of that Qirex challenge after Amsterdam Euro convention next week.

2:44:52? :?
I'm gonna have to improve my time. :g

I remember Asayyeah's best time being something like 2.30... although that was done in an Icaras, still very impressive.

14th March 2008, 05:47 PM
Gotta admit that, but i too prefer Icaras mostly. However, i wanted a slight change to that all with this challenge. SR is not my favorite when it comes to record attempts, either.

:g I do what I can. :nod

Qirex was hard enough though...I'm not even gonna try Icaras! LOL

I managed to improve my time, not by much though...
