View Full Version : Die Hard League

22nd February 2009, 10:51 AM
Hello, I present you my new league, the Die Hard League (thanks kanar for the name).
It's a kind of Avalon, but with weapons! It's forbidden to absorb any weapons, even to cancel an auto-pilot!
In order to prevent your reflexes to press O before a pad for example, you will need to go in settings paddle before an Die Hard event, and put the Absorb function on the button... Select? :naughty R3 since update 1.30 :D

Next event, thirsday 16 april, 20.30 GMT +1 (London) or 21.30 GMT +2 (West Europ)

This looks like an interesting idea. I doubt I would survive more than a second in the AGS or Feisar but I like to give new stuff a try. So count me in for the first one.

22nd February 2009, 11:03 AM
That is very interesting, what happened if I accidently pressed a `O` button?, that means I`m disqualifed!


22nd February 2009, 11:29 AM
It's why you have to set your paddle : absorb = Select button

22nd February 2009, 11:42 AM
I imagine that with absorb assigned to the select button, the O button would return to its default. So if you press it accidentally on purpose, then you will immediately self destruct and respawn in hell. Either that, or nothing would happen, it's 50-50.

22nd February 2009, 11:51 AM
No no, the O button don't work, no function on this button. We've test this tournament last thursday with leungbok, Wotan, ExpitariuS, Bonake, Epsilon Darkdrium & Xtriko, good racing, no cheats, and "contender eliminated" twice par lap!

22nd February 2009, 12:42 PM
great idea! this means that other people will be eliminated and not always me by myself :)

22nd February 2009, 02:06 PM
Ridiculous idea :) I like it!

22nd February 2009, 03:57 PM
This will leave no room for BR's :) in the other hand, it sounds like my usual day to day online failure.

23rd February 2009, 01:56 AM
Hmmm...what time?

23rd February 2009, 01:57 AM
Should be called "Absolute carnage league" :lol

23rd February 2009, 11:16 AM
**** im tired.

Whats this league features, elimination styled events?

23rd February 2009, 11:32 AM
No BRs, no absorbtion, more explosion... new racing to death gameplay. Great idea. I'll do my best to join one of this event in a near future.

23rd February 2009, 12:12 PM
This definitely seems more like my kind of event :D I'll never make it because of the time difference but still, it sounds fun.

23rd February 2009, 12:47 PM
is it that BRs aren't allowed or are they just inadvisable?
would be fun to try and do BRs like normal :) lots of elims woo!

23rd February 2009, 12:56 PM
My understanding is that BR's are allowed...just not advisable.

23rd February 2009, 01:08 PM
exactly. BR at your own risk!

23rd February 2009, 04:09 PM
Kaori, this idea sounds really fun ... something like a merge of Killzone2 and Wipeout, a 'bloody' aka 'shreddy' feast ... i applied for the usergroup, please accept, and see you on track latest in March.

26th February 2009, 10:44 PM
I've mentioned this in the news.wpa newsletter.

This is a brilliant idea. I'll totally be there on the 5th.

27th February 2009, 09:28 AM
Maybe a port to Pulse also? ;)

27th February 2009, 04:21 PM
The problem is you can't respawn in WipEout Pulse.

27th February 2009, 04:28 PM
OH! Sure, ok, but that'll make it even more "tight". ;)

4th March 2009, 10:41 AM
Who wants play tomorrow? (20.30 GMT)

4th March 2009, 05:25 PM
Yes please, I do :)

4th March 2009, 06:52 PM
ill definitly join if im at home round then

5th March 2009, 08:21 PM
Holy mother of cow. I'm in this right now. This is how the game should be played. Wow!

Why they included the absorb feature in the game is beyond me. AWESOME!!!

5th March 2009, 11:38 PM
Here the results. Big races, with 5 deads in the last lap on Chenghou, or that : "leungbok killed le_trou_noir & le_trou_noir killed leungbok" at same time! Look the final points, three players with 68 points! We need a big big podium!

Tournoi Normal :
1. kaori 47
3. Wowo 36
3. SaturnReturn 36
5. le_trou_noir 31
5. leungbok 31
7. ExpitariuS 6

Tournoi Reverse :
1. leungbok 46
2. Spartiate 38
3. kaori 36
4. SaturnReturn 32
4. Wowo 32
7. le_trou_noir 19

Total :
1. kaori 83
2. leungbok 77
3. SaturnReturn 68
3. Wowo 68
6. le_trou_noir 50
7. Spartiate 38
8. ExpitariuS 6

5th March 2009, 11:45 PM
Wow, joint 3rd, cool! I was amazed by how well I survived in the Icarus. The only thing I didn't like was canon. Having to wait to fire off all the rounds before I could get another weapon was making me impatient. Plus the fact that I kept driving into walls while doing so :lol

5th March 2009, 11:59 PM
Sounds fun, as i am making a bad habit of being eliminated all the time i shouldn't be out of place in this. If you have another one i would like to join in:lol

6th March 2009, 12:12 AM
It'd be good to see you there kgb, as I felt a bit out of place against all the frenchmen. Especially as some of them had headsets and seemed to be talking some strange alien language. At least I assume it was alien because it sure wasn't english.

6th March 2009, 03:41 PM
Yes Saturn, we speack a strange dialect ^^

In any case, it was a very good Die hard yesterday ! Thanks Kaori ;)

8th March 2009, 10:42 PM
Next Die Hard, this thursday, 12th march, 20.30 GMT.

registred :

12th March 2009, 07:59 AM
Who's else?

12th March 2009, 05:15 PM
I'll join, but mum could take tv at this hour... so it's not 100% ok

12th March 2009, 06:11 PM
Is there room for me? If there is then I'll join.

12th March 2009, 06:46 PM
Ok Eloļ, we will play 2 hours or more, you can come later


12th March 2009, 07:37 PM
My icaras and his 60 on shield will be there :P

12th March 2009, 10:02 PM
Damn, I couldn't stand with you kamikazes :banzai

Wish I could have stayed more, hope no one drove mad after all these beep-beep-take-care-you'll-die-as-soon-as-some-player-launches-this-inevitable-quake laps =p

13th March 2009, 08:14 AM
Those earlier morning races with ****ing brilliant, loved it! Some of the most fun ive had on the Wipeout HD servers, reguardless of the outcomes of the races. Really good league to race with Triakis in too:D

Sign me up to this league Kaori.

Thanks for video Saturn :rock, you couldn't do better than this race on Moa Therma I won ;)

11th April 2009, 09:28 PM
Looool, it was that race where we killed each other with "le_trou_noir"(bomb against missile, lol). It was awesome !! Thanks for that, mate ! one of my funniest experience in hd ! :lol

11th April 2009, 09:30 PM
There's so many cool meets going on at the moment, I can't play them all but if there is any room Kaori, I'd like to have a go. Being eliminated is a hobby of mine so I should be very good at this ;)

Shame kgb - we would have had fun getting destroyed together. What do you mean by "Now a Phantom pilot though"?
