I'm home alone this time, no fast mate at my place to run a second host... But I'm trying to organize a HOSTING NETWORK all around the world for this week-end. Let's say I'll be the "mother host" _lol_ aka the no-sleep mode dude. Don't worry guys, I'll take a 2 months break after that, in order to prepare Bergamo lol.

i'll be there to take up the reins until around 05:30 (or maybe later) each morning so we should easily be able to get 24/7 hosting in conjunction with the non-euro hosts.

im so excited :dizzy :D

KIGO1987
19th March 2009, 04:31 PM
The colours used in this post have given me a headache, lol.

Nice map at the bottom of the page btw :D

stinkleroy
19th March 2009, 04:34 PM
Weeeee I'm so happy this is happening again so soon, from the vids it looks like I missed a whole load of fun in March attacks. But now I can look forward to being obliterated in April instead :p

I'll help out in any way needed.

archman
19th March 2009, 04:38 PM
Now this is some excellent-looking thread. As always, kanar, you amaze me with your dedication and flawless promotion of Avalon.

Keep it up and stay heavy. lol

I'm definitely in for the host, only if something emergent happens, I'll let you know!
Add me to the map, LOL LOL :D:D:D *kidding*

Outstanding work!

kanar
19th March 2009, 04:54 PM
Thanks a lot for your support guys & Cat! I need to practice a lot now, only 2 weeks remaining!!! Cat, we'll keep in touch regarding the host stuff. I'll check my pm box & edit the definitive emergency hoster list soon!

again, thx a lot. :P

Arch, I added you on the ugly map I found on google. I'm at work, I'll make a clean stuff soon lol

archman
19th March 2009, 05:25 PM
hahahah, awesome.

You rock! :)

Darkdrium777
19th March 2009, 06:18 PM
I'll be there if I can. You are simply amazing friend :o

No troubles hosting if someone needs to, it's just that my internet isn't that great in upload so if someone else is willing it might be better for them to host first (Deactivated weapon pads in weapons on races very fast otherwise). Since this is Avalon it might not matter so much though.

LOUDandPROUD
19th March 2009, 06:49 PM
I won't be able to participate on that Fri or Sat, but I should be able to find some time to race on Sun. Can't wait! :hyper

Mad-Ice
19th March 2009, 07:35 PM
Looking very professional! With multiple hosts and all. Big thumbs up. I hope I can be there a lot.

archman
19th March 2009, 07:38 PM
Hope you'll participate on Pulse too, mad! ;)

kanar
19th March 2009, 07:52 PM
yeah, looking reaaally crazy this time lol. Professional? thanks but it still looks fake for me lol. I'm trying to set up a sort of grand finale before the euro convention! And this is my last available week-end before a long time (Bergamo!). And I need a break. :lol. For the moment, we have fantastic & multiples network solutions nearly everywhere; yeldar, Saturn, Asa & Elhabib are up for some emergency stuff. Kigo (Australia), Darkdrium (Canada) will be ok for some host if needed too. Archman will be ok for the pulse sessions, but it would be great to extend the concept to the PULSE part too. What is extremely risky on HD sounds impossible on pulse, but... why not?. We'll keep in touch, feel free to pm Arch or me for the pulse part too.

archman
19th March 2009, 07:54 PM
You just gave me an idea! What about implementing a team race into avalon on Pulse, to make it even more interesting and attractive, but to not break the boundaries of avalon (if there are any anymore :D?)? Maybe one session? True avalon style I mean (no weps).

:)

btw.: April Rush? Hell of a cool name!

kanar
19th March 2009, 08:05 PM
lol, sure, you can try to organize that. For the moment, let's keep the pulse schedule, & add during the week-end a team race. There's nothing sunday?... More stuff lol. I'll try to help too, if I find time!

EPSILON
19th March 2009, 09:50 PM
Excellent Kanar ;)

I finish my cocoon, time to test it with a AVALON dreams !

Asayyeah
20th March 2009, 11:28 AM
I ll be there helping hosting Avalon for the glory of that amazing event :cake

kanar
20th March 2009, 11:37 AM
Good news mate! I'm just waiting for Blackwiggle answer for now. Well, we have already a cool crew, 2 weeks before the event. Nice. It would be awesome if we could light at least one candle, & maybe 2 when the first is full, all over the week-end. I think we're all in our respective psn list, Kigo you can erase this kanar_is_back s****y ID, he's dead forever (I hope). We could coordinate our efforts from here too, synchronizing/relaying & passing the hosts. Lol, I'm dreamin'.

Mateo
20th March 2009, 02:06 PM
I had to miss the march attack, but now I'm even more happy about the soon coming april rush! :nod

kanar
20th March 2009, 03:34 PM
Good to hear that Mateo! Ok, I've managed a day off lol. The first race is now scheduled for the first minute of friday, April 3, 00h00 GMT :banzai. As I said, some kind of "grand finale", before a 2 months break.

AG-wolf
20th March 2009, 03:52 PM
Maybe I'll put some effort into this one :3 Stock up on the Red Bull, and practice like mad.

kanar
20th March 2009, 04:43 PM
awesome AG-wolf, we need fast qirex pilots! ok 100% of the wishlist is up to host some races, & run the no-weapons record hunt. As I said, I'll begin to host in the thusday night (23:00 or 00:00 GMT). We'll see if a second host is needed then. Who wants the first relay? (5:00 GMT, friday morning...) :lol

RJ O'Connell
20th March 2009, 04:53 PM
Is it too late for me to possibly enter that weekend? I finally won't have a weekend dominated by other stuff...

kanar
20th March 2009, 04:56 PM
Lol mate, I'm actually trying to set up a massive GG (with no filters) all over the week-end, with multiple hosts. The list in the first post is an emergency hoster list, in order to have at least one candle lighted -maybe 2 if there's crowd- during the entire week-end (based on GMT times). RJO, hope you could join us!

Estimated roadmap for day1 (friday ap. 3) so far (GMT) :

00h00------------------->05h00 ---------------------->11h00
-->Host Kanar ---------> Host ? --------------------->Host Kanar
-->(Emergency host)?-> (Emergency host)?------->(Emergency host)?

AnErare
20th March 2009, 06:42 PM
W00h00! Awesome :)

I'm definitely attending this time and probably for the entire weekend :D

Danterich
29th March 2009, 07:46 PM
Im terribly sorry guys ! Im suffering a, what i call, "WipeoutHD-Burnout-Syndrome" caused by various reasons.. so, i wont be an "emergency-host". Maybe ill show up 4 some races. All the best and have some real good times on tracks, wipeout-fellows!!!!

kanar
30th March 2009, 09:48 AM
no probs mate, I'll take your turn lol. Hope you could join us for some races anyway. My kanar Id is broken again, hopefully kanar_is_back will be there.

Darkdrium777
1st April 2009, 03:08 AM
I will not be able to host or join either, too busy with school. :| Oh well.

AG-wolf
1st April 2009, 05:49 AM
CRAAAAAAP I work friday, I have to go to a Q&A session at the college Ive been accepted to on Saturday, and Sunday I made plans for lunch and bullshit with a friend of mine I Haven't seen in years ;_____;

I'll try to jump in if at all possible, I'm sorry I totally forgot about this :C

kanar
1st April 2009, 07:47 AM
no worries, I'll be there. Whatever the time, the day, the hour. You could jump for some races at any time, if there's remaining slots. Darkdrium I wish you good luck with your school works.

Estimated roadmap for day1 (friday ap. 3) so far (GMT) :

00h00------------------->05h00 ---------------------->11h00
-->Host Kanar ---------> Host ? --------------------->Host Kanar
-->(Emergency host)?-> (Emergency host)?------->(Emergency host)?

(feel free to post here or pm me if you want to host some sessions related to this event, the goal is simply a massive GG room deployment)

djKyoto
1st April 2009, 02:16 PM
Maybe I can make this one for a change.

I still hate timezones.

KIGO1987
1st April 2009, 09:40 PM
Remember the timezone shift. Aus went out of daylight savings last weekend, when in the North they went into daylight savings. The timezone between our countries have closed by a 2hour gap. Perth is back to GMT+8, Melbourne and Sydney are back to GMT+10, but France is GMT+2 now, and the UK is at GMT+1, now due to the time changes....... **** i hate daylight savings.

yeldar2097
1st April 2009, 09:47 PM
you've successfully confused the **** out of me :lol
stupid timezone shenanigans...

SaturnReturn
1st April 2009, 10:06 PM
You're lucky he didn't go into the detail of different time zones within Australia. Someone at work did with me and, coupled with all this daylight savings nonsense, it makes it impossible to know when is a good time for Australians. You're better off just assuming they're in the same time zone as us. You'll still get it wrong but it will have taken far less effort and destroyed far less brain cells.

kanar
1st April 2009, 10:27 PM
LOL guys, I had the same conversation at work today. You're right Saturn, it's better to ignore timezone. This is maybe the last time I can devote an entire week-end to this game, so why not... playing a lot of wipeout lol. Of course I'll try to sleep a little too. I've finally shooted 3 crappy teasers for this event. Again guys, thx A LOT for your support. We're about to live something really cool this week-end, thanks to you guys. Ok, final training sessions now lol.

crappy stuff :

Kanar, you're hilarious. Once again, great work...loved the shark one! Lol!

SaturnReturn
1st April 2009, 11:53 PM
kanar - I'm clear to take the day off work this Friday so can be there for the whole thing. Yayness! Looking forward to it. Let me know if you need me to host and I'll try to be there.

And yes I am sort of taking a whole day off to play wipeout, but I have a whole year of holiday saved up and can carry it over, so it's not as bad as it sounds. I mean, it's not as if I'm addicted or anything.:blarg

stinkleroy
2nd April 2009, 12:39 AM
Haha don't worry Saturn, if anyone will understand your terrible addiction it's us :p

Nice tearsers Olivier, I'm with L&P I really like the shark one, and thats not just because I love sharks...glad you managed to get them done in time :D

Mad-Ice
2nd April 2009, 06:29 AM
Thanks for the teasers. I am hyped up right now. I also want to take the day off, but that is not possible for me, sadly.

Go Saturn, go Saturn, lol.

lunar
2nd April 2009, 09:55 AM
Day off? You lucky so and so, Saturn. But somehow I will juggle real life, football and wipeout to be there a while. I`m looking forward to seeing how Harimau performs, but as a temporary Harimau pilot also feeling slightly like the seal must have felt just before the start of teaser 3 :)

kanar
2nd April 2009, 01:58 PM
Thx a lot -should I say as usual, awesome- for you support & dedication guys & gals! Saturn you're really nuts -like me, but in better shape lol-. Feel free to confirm or decline the stuff above.

Let's arrange the host relay from here. For the moment, we have this configuration for tonight :

Estimated roadmap for day1 (friday ap. 3) so far (GMT) :

00h00------------------->05h00 ---------------------->11h00
-->Host Kanar ---------> Host ? --------------------->Host Kanar
-->E. Host : Go Saturn-> (E. Host ?)------->(maybe Go Saturn too?)

Kigo my friend! I'm still GMT+1 -Hopefully not more lol-

RJ O'Connell
2nd April 2009, 05:16 PM
The start time is at zero hour in GMT...that's 6 PM where I'm at...I can do this!

On a second note, I'm going to at least _TRY_ to record some of my races, bear in mind if you've seen videos like these (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxG8teuSio8) they won't exactly be top-quality. And I'll try not to swear at others during the videos. Don't want you all to know what I'm thinking in the heat of battle ;)

AG-wolf
2nd April 2009, 06:14 PM
maybe I'll take friday off... but then, should I stay home and play wipeout all day, or go out and do stuff with friends? that's a tough decision :P

RJ O'Connell
2nd April 2009, 06:17 PM
Usually I'll lean towards the latter but I haven't been to an Avalon race all year. They can come visit me, I'm not coming to them today! >_>

SaturnReturn
2nd April 2009, 11:19 PM
kanar - Not sure I would last all night like you. I can definitely be emergency host until 2am, more than likely can be until 3am. All in my time.
As I type this it's almost 2320 hours in London and according to the internet almost 0020 hours in Paris. Hope that clarifies times for people. Just to try and clear things up. London was in GMT until last Sunday. Now the clocks have gone forward one hour. This is no longer GMT. It is called BST (British Summer Time I think). It's equivalent to GMT+1. However, I believe Europe is now in GMT+2 as their (your) clocks should also have gone forward 1 hour for daylight savings.

I hope that's right.

If you still need people to fill out the ranks for the NA league Ill play... Im on right now ;)

yeldar2097
3rd April 2009, 02:33 AM
as far as i know (it may not be my place to say), avalon is an open league so there should be no problem with you joining.
still haven't found my ps3... :(

Vartazian
3rd April 2009, 02:45 AM
I was invited to the league. I just dont think I registered for this competition in time :P

SaturnReturn
3rd April 2009, 02:56 AM
Vartazian - It's ok. you just turn up, join the right room, and play. No signing up necessary :+

I hosted some races earlier as I couldn't see kanar online but thought it was supposed to be starting. If they're deemed to count by kanar then Wotan broke 3 records already :p

Videos on wegame:

WipEout HD - Avalon - Chenghou - Wotan - 2.04.34 (http://www.wegame.com/watch/WipEout_HD_Avalon_Chenghou_Wotan_2_04_34/) (Fixed:))

I would like to play avalon tomorrow afternoon or evening but I has not played HD for over a month!:eek

kanar
3rd April 2009, 08:18 AM
Stin, hope you could join us, & don't worry, I'm actually in a real bad shape so I'll take the last place instead of you. I would like to appologize, again, I f****d up. I was too tired last night to wake up for 00.00 BST. I just wake up here (9:17 in France, 8:17 in London). Saturn I would like to thank you a LOT. I really suck. Ok I'm kind of operational to host now. Again sorry for last night, and sorry in advance for my future creepy performances.


but then, should I stay home and play wipeout all day, or go out and do stuff with friends? that's a tough decision :P

You're right, & this is why I need a break after this we.

I'm just uploading a video. After that I'll be on to fill the gap while kanar's off train spotting. (Unless there's another emergency host that's beat me to it.) I did forward last night and raced forward tracks again earlier. I think kanar probably just did reverse tracks but I missed it so will do reverse and maybe mix in a few forward tracks too. ETA 1915 hours BST (London Time).

Damned.. I was joining in on the action until at first WO was starting to show my name as 'PLAYER' on my ps3. Then strange things started to happen with me finishing 3rd and the system showing me as being 3rd but the voice telling me I came in 2nd.. I decided to restart WO but since then I am receiving the infamous network error...

Will try again later, have fun guys :)

hey Arch, hope I let you the host properly. Me & my bro are totally out of training, on pulse, & more, my bro keep puking everywhere for 2h now cos' of my f*****g d**g. We're about to move to hd through my kanar_is_back id now, as soon as the servers will be up. un-gros-ours is dead. Me too lol.

some words from my bro :

I'm totally ****ed up right now and there are trillions of thoughts blowing in my mind, plus, a lot faster than a piranha in fantom. If I had as much money as sentences ringing inside of my head, I 'd be able to put an end to the economic crisis, right here right now. But sadly I don't have the money, only the **** in my head... have fun!

Just finished a session of the reverse tracks. I've been uploading a few videos to wegame so will make a list later. The next one will be the closest I've come to a record. 0.7 seconds behind Wellington's VinetaK reverse time. Which in some ways is a lot but in others is quite close. This is where videos=torture as I watch back all the cock ups I made and wish I hadn't made them. Ah well, it gives me hope. Should give others hope too as there are plenty of folks as fast as me so avalon records aren't out of reach for any of us.

kanar - Can you let me know next time when you start reverse tracks again please? Via this thread if possible. I want another crack at Vineta :rock

Thanks to all those who joined me for the session. Sorry to kgb for the lag etc, but thanks for staying til the end to keep me company when everyone else had left.

Ehh maybe if I didn't fall through the track I would've stayed a little longer... But I was fed up of losing because of BS netcode and collision issues. :|
If there's one thing disappointing with WipEout HD, it's the online gameplay. I have great fun racing with you guys, races are always so tight and that's good. However with that always comes those damn "lag bombs" that I always get hit by no matter where I travel on the track, and the frustrating ship to ship physics. :|
The falling through the track was just the hilarious/frustrating bit that pushed me over the edge. :frown:

Good races with everyone, and the chat feature is really cool for this type of get together. :)

4th April 2009, 10:04 AM
You seemed to do ok 777, winning lots.

I, on the other hand spat the dummy, too tired and too drunk and getting pushed from pillar to post (lamp).

Great fun though, the chat feature is making me laugh big time. Some proper laugh out loud moments happened last night. couldn't concentrate enough on the racing. :lol

Darkdrium777
4th April 2009, 10:20 AM
Yeah well you know that's my problem... I'd always be doing Ok (Finish in top four a lot more) if it wasn't sometimes for these bugs and glitches. It's generally because of them that I finish close to last. >.< I absolutely hate it when a glitch prevents me from playing normally, and this is exactly the situation sometimes with WipEout HD online. :( So that's why the last two races I just sat there... I just didn't feel motivated enough to continue... It's like a barrier that I cannot surpass, but it doesn't show up all the time, just sometimes. But when it does show up it completely breaks the game for me. :/

A few more videos here:

Avalon_3rd_March_Sebenco_Climb - A close race at the start but then I start to lose it and Wotan starts to br. Then you start to see the true difference in our abilities.

Avalon_3rd_April_Ubermall_Weapons_On (http://www.wegame.com/watch/Avalon_3rd_April_Ubermall_Weapons_On/) - This is how not to race - so many mess-ups. But still a close race considering there were only 4 of us in it.

Avalon 3rd April Moa Therma When_Avalon_goes_bad (http://www.wegame.com/watch/WipEout_HD_When_Avalon_goes_bad/) - For everyone who gets annoyed with lag (including me) - this is just an example that it happens to all of us sometimes. In particular check out kanar's and Smelly Cat's double team on me around 1 minute in. Harsh guys! (Any tips for Flatland Flyer welcome)

Avalon_3rd_April_Vineta_K_Reverse (http://www.wegame.com/watch/Avalon_3rd_April_Vineta_K_Reverse/) - A New Hope. The race that gave me hope I could get an Avalon record someday, because I got a reasonable time despite a fair few screw-ups. (Yes, lucky with the front row start but still)

Avalon_3rd_April_Vineta_K (http://www.wegame.com/watch/Avalon_3rd_April_Vineta_K/) - The name's kanar, license to thrill. Just a close race between me and kanar.

Avalon_3rd_April_Anulpha_Pass (http://www.wegame.com/watch/Avalon_3rd_April_Anulpha_Pass/) - This one might amuse a few people with my crazy screw-ups. Another "how not to do it" video.

Avalon_4th_April_Chenghou_Crazy_Eliminations (http://www.wegame.com/watch/Avalon_4th_April_Chenghou_Crazy_Eliminations/) - Again, don't follow my crappy racing as an example. But there is a couple of fun explosions in this one.

Hope a few folks enjoy those. I'll try to get some more up for tracks I haven't posted, especially reverse tracks.

I typed in Cambodia Kanar cause someone else said there where that many bombs and mines in that race i decided to reply in the same way Blackwiggle tells me "Cambodia"

Sorry about the online spam in the Chatbox guys i was on the brink of death of boredom. I can imagine all those irritating msgs coming up on the top right of the screen during those milli second battles when any decision can ultimately change the fate of the race.

Im just thinking some of these video where recorded were'nt they. I can imagine the infinity amount of cursing seen in the top right of the screen for all to see. At least ive learned something new tonight. In France you dont have toilet paper.

Well, well, well. I'm... finished. What a marathon. Thank you guys & gals for this marvelous _freaky_ week-end. I'm happy cos' again I raced a lot of people from here & arena. That was a big fiesta. I had the feeling to be in that chatroom with you guys, cheering me up just after my Icaras burned 2 or 3 times in the previous race (I was awful this we). LOL. This community is awesome, & I was honoured to read it in "live" at the corner of my screen all this we. But as you know, What goes up, must go down. I have to go back to my real life & get back control of myself. this is not related to this place or this game (well maybe a little lol). I've some real probs to deal with. Thanks a lot, really, for your incredible support, all through this year... What an incredible story. World of wipeout. The best game ever. lol. I'll upload some vids soon, I'll try to find the rare ones where I'm not chatting/giving a phone call/opening to a friend lol, or dying/respawning 10 times. Hopefully I had my mate Saturn with his awesome skills & his wegame account, thank god we already have great vids from you. Arnaud thank you too a lot. For your nice words on msn, & your support. I wanted to finish this post with you, cos' it's ALL YOUR FAULT lol (and Flashback fault too) if I'm a wipeout addict. I love you. And I love you all. Well, enough with my stupid words. Time for a break. I wish you all a GG soon!

Kanar... may the cafeine god keep mercy over you. i defo LOVED the avalon concept with all my heart. first day i worked untill late night, then i daaylighted it and went to work the following day. last day i was shitfaced drunk :beer. this is acctually the most enjoyable time i ever had online ( i feel all warm and fuzzy from all the love :D )
im still trying to keep up at all with the ace pilots but even though i got my face kicked in i enjoyed all the avalon races. ( off topic: i tried hosting my own room for an hour but without zoners i felt lonely. and besides i was kicking ass, which is unnatural for me to do nowadays on phantom.)

thanks Motorsagmannen, & thx a lot to EVERYONE who joined this big fiesta. DAMN DAMN DAMN work. I need a real clone to manage this stuff. Thank you a lot SaturnReturn, awesome support you provided me in this epic week-end. I put links of your vids in the front page of this thread. I was able to upload 3 vids (had no time to put the links here yet) on youtube, but it will take me the whole week -maybe two- to sort this stuff. I think it worths it, cos' I enjoyed watching these awesome bling brigade races last night (well, I'm still in World of Wipeout, couldn't clean my place & get back to reality so far LOL). Maybe you'll like 'em too. I'll try to put the best vids on wegame too, but as I said, I'll need time. Links above are Saturn vids.

Ooh by the way, there was a competition stuff lol. I found interesting to make a "fantastic four" pick instead of the "traditional mvp kind of award lol". The four aces quoted in the first page raced in the record times almost every races. CrAzY.

Thanks kanar. I have a couple more videos on wegame now but I've actually switched to youtube. Why? Because wegame gives you no choice of file size/quality. I've experimented with settings and now I can get reasonable normal quality videos on youtube, with the added option of HD. The HD file will be about 60MB. Wegame makes all my videos 60MB no matter what. So those with slower connections will be put off. Youtube HD is still slightly lower definition than wegame, but it's not a big difference. If you're camera is standard definition though, I'd stil go wegame, as the quality will be much better than youtube, and it's less hassle with transcoding.

Videos (mostly forward again, more reverse vids soon I promise):

Very nice skills Saturn on Ubermall. I tried to do that short cut 5 times as well, didn't make 1 of them. :lol I need to practice a little.

Thanks kgb. I think that's the first shortcut I've gotten the hang of so far. All the others I suck at, especially if they involved a boost. I often end up in the wall. I actually only got the hang of this one since the last Avalon. I watched one of kanar's videos and saw that he sideshifts it. Once I started doing that it was much simpler. So I owe him for that one, as well as the bit on anulpha where you drop off the bridge and barrel roll. On that one I actually did sideshift when I shouldn't have. Goes to show how subtle differences have a big effect on lap times.

do avalon records count outside of avalon events cos luxoflux beat his moa R time??

Nice to see his form is suffering before our Doubles race tonight! :lol

SaturnReturn

I'd like to know if they count too, because I beat all these records by at least 5 whole seconds per lap. I even had video evidence but then my camera magically updated itself and I had to destroy the SD card just to turn it on. Funny how these things work out :p Records for me please :D

I wouldn't have thought they should count. Otherwise, anyone could be on form and go online and bust out an awesome race. Well I say anyone, but I mean about 4 guys in reality. But still, I'd hope that Avalon records can only be set during Avalon weekends. It adds to the excitement :+

Nice youtube races by the way Saturn! I have left a few messages on some. Good that some of my wins have been recorded for posterity.

I'll show them to my grandchildren someday. Just after I've thrashed them on Wipeout14. :lol

Thanks Saturn. But you know, I'm feeling more & more like old snake, tired. Just after one year of intense wipeout way of life lol. Living a double life is exhausting. We'll talk about the future of this league soon. One event per month with multiple hosts recording these times all over the world is something possible, & maybe better than just one fool in front of his ps3 during 3 days. I had my Raiden mate Saturn last time, I'm sure we can coordinate something even bigger if we all agree for a same date/week-end.
