So, since we're finally 4 active racers (or so I'm told...) let's get our act together and have some practice sessions, shall we?
Mateo and Danterich are racing very frequently (almost everytime I'm online actually) - so I'm gonna ask TaroBarkhan to tell us when you are available mate, since you're the one with the least spare time it seems.
Would be cool if we could get like a weekly session together, ey?

Also, if anyone else from Austria reads this, this is a call to arms! :) Reveal yourself and join the real Red Bull Air Force ;)

Another team ENG will get to tick off the list ;)

Awesome idea buddy :)

I saw a couple of previously unknown austrian racers this weekend while online. I can't remember their names (sorry) but if I see them again I will be sure to send them your way.

Best of luck Team Austria in your future racing endeavours.

Hi eLhabib,

Sorry, for not showing myself online. My PS3 is not connected to the internet anymore, cause there is some re-construction going on in my flat. It should finish in one or two weeks.

I had to play with the AI though it felt like swimming on the land.

I have time on the weekend/national holidays and mostly on Fridays. During the working week, it's hard for me to find time.

I let you know, as soon as I can start.

This is great news, eL. By the looks of things team Austria should be strong, I know you eL, Danterich and Mateo and three very fast pilots. Unfortunately I can't comment on Taro as I don't think we've ever raced :(.

Maybe Austria can have a (not very)friendly meeting with England when you're all ready? I'd certainly be up for it :D. I also hope that Austria will be taking part in the world cup, the more the merrier!

Mateo

Training sessions are a great idea and since my holidays are starting next week I'm available pretty all the time (okay, my 8-10 hours per week at university weren't actually that hard also when not having holidays:lol)

I was thinking of the movie Bruno then for a sec actually.

Good another team is involved, seems like you guys are ready and organised unlike Team Aus NZ or whatever the **** it is called these days. My team seriously needs to be re-managed if there is any consideration participating in the world cup.

Danterich
29th June 2009, 07:38 AM
Hell yes, lotsa training i need! We shall pm 4 details.
I just pointed LaiN-85 to this thread. I really hope he will finally join the wzone AND our team!

Danterich
30th June 2009, 08:22 PM
OMG.OMG,OMG, i flying so terrible shitty these days, and im uncapable to improve it seems. So to make it short, and it seems that LaiN-85, who flies a level above me(at least), wont show up,..blah blah.Ive got to withdraw from registration for the WWC2009. Im sure that eLhabib ,Mister_Mateo and perhaps TaroBarkhan will make me proud to come from our little country Austria!!

30th June 2009, 08:25 PM
Not you as well. Stop it. In these kinds of matches anything can happen. If everyone quits because they have a few bad days then we won't have any of our favourite players left :(

You're playing Danterich, so get over it :p If you want you can have some coaching from the Dutch team, although we don't seem to win anything so it probably wouldn't help too much :D

eLhabib
30th June 2009, 10:02 PM
Danterich, it's not about winning, it's about having fun. Please, don't withdraw because you're not feeling skilled enough, that would be just stupid.

Amorbis
30th June 2009, 10:14 PM
Danterich don't be like that, I can see where you're coming from but if you stop racing it wont help. I would have left ages ago if I'd said to myself 'I'm rubbish and I can't compete' and there's no doubt I would have regretted it. I've continued to have fun despite not winning all the time.

Also if you now leave then your country may not be able to compete at all, you're low on players as it is. Of course no one can't stop you, it's your decision.

Don`t give up, Danterich. Don`t make me change my nationality to Austrian. That would be okay as I do love Mozart, Apple Strudel and Red Bull, but I`d rather be Italian if it can be arranged. With eL in Goteki tearing off at the start and you guys backing him up you will have a great team I think and could cause an upset or two :banzai

Saturn is right - anything can happen. Focus like mad on getting a good start then really you will always have some chance of scoring useful points I think.

Mateo
1st July 2009, 12:53 AM
I just can join the others! It's not the winning, it's the taking part that counts. Otherwise we could cancel this event and declare the favorites from France as winner without racing. We're racing for fun and everything else doesn't matter. Also I cannot imagine Team Austria without Danterich, the guy who hustled me to become more active at this board in january and hence is responsible for my Wipeout addiction!
:(:(:(

I really really hope you'll change your mind about this.

Danterich
1st July 2009, 07:56 AM
Well, ehem, okay, ill stay in the team. I dont wanna ruin your fun by not taking part in this event. I f you only can keep up a team if i stay , so may it be this way. But i cant promise nothing. I will train but im still a messy pilot...so
I stay in the name of FUN and may FURY ignite a new racing flame in me(and you all)

eLhabib
1st July 2009, 08:26 AM
You'll be fine, don't you worry :)

TaroBarkhan
1st July 2009, 08:46 AM
That's great, Danterich. I always valued as a very strong pilot. Don't worry about your skill, I am also not that good - compared to many others of the WZ.

But, I won't make it easy for the others to pass my ship. Hahahaha (Demonic laughter):evil:lol

kaori
1st July 2009, 09:22 AM
Have fun, it's more important than win. It's just a game but we have to respect members like Mad-Ice who spent a lot of time, in order to arrange this nice event.

Sasha Baron Cohen RULEZ. And Austrian team too! Danterich, keep it up, we're all feeling the same, don't you worry. And Lain-85 signed up btw, you see, wipeout unity rocks!

And LOL Kigo, Elhabib is not Bruno. Nice one btw

Mateo
1st July 2009, 12:07 PM
That's great news Danterich and don't you worry about your skill, you're one of the fastest internal pilots around. When I change to internal you're beating me on every track with a lead of 5-10 seconds. :dizzy

Hi everyone :)

A few days ago, i meet Danterich on Wipeout HD. He ask me to be a member of Team Austria, and now i'm here.

At Phantom i'm not very good, but at Flash and Rapier i'm not soo bad i think.. ;)


So, what i have to do for the membership?

Bye


(and sorry for my bad english..)

Hi Kerni, welcome!
What you have to do to become part of team Austria? Well... be austrian, I guess ;) Welcome aboard! Hope to race you eye-to-eye online soon!

OBH
9th July 2009, 04:25 PM
Just saw Danterich saying he might not take part.

Rubbish, during one of the recent Alavons no-one was able to get anywhere near you for about 9 races :)

Mateo

Hi Kerni, nice to meet another Austrian pilot.:D

This is Shaping up to be a powerful team! You guys should take on our North American team!

We have been looking for a team to race for some time!

Danterich
10th July 2009, 10:52 AM
hi kerni, welcome aboard the zone. you should write an intro in pilots lounge!
Avalon was a real training lesson 4 me again! pressure,pressure, lol
i raced LaiN-85 often lately, man, hes superfast!! I really hope he will join our team, since hes a zonemember already! and thx 4 your kind words Mateo and osama..
and Vartazian, that sounds nice 2 me, we could arrange a (friendly)challenge sometimes soon, well see

TaroBarkhan
10th July 2009, 12:44 PM
Hi Kerni,

Welcome. And you're living close to the village where I grew up: Perchtoldsdorf (For everyone else, that's about the distance of 2 or 3 laps Anulpha Pass). Hope to see you soon.

Taro

Thanks for the warm welcome!
But i'm confused; what means "Avalon" exactly..? :o

Mateo
10th July 2009, 01:30 PM
I've raced and written with Lain the days before and he told me that he would like to join our team too now, guess he was just a little shy.:g
But he'll be on holiday from tomorrow till around 25th or so. I'll be away from 2nd August till 27th August (will be back home for 2-3 days around 15th August). So we always would have enough people to race/train @Vartazian.:+

Edit: look here Kerni: http://wipeoutzone.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6314

By the way, I reconnected my PS3 to the www (finally, after 1 to 2 months abstinence) and did a few races. So, I am eagerly waiting to see you guys all online again. :banzai

Danterich
30th July 2009, 08:52 PM
I just had an incredible wohd-session with LaiN-85 and some other zoners. We chatted about the WWC and hes definitly in our Team Austria now:beer:rock!!
Please welcome him, visit his profile page to motivate him to finally write his 1st post.

I've seen you on the track one or two times and you're very good. :beer

Austria and Team NA should have a small Scrimage before the WWC.

We just want to test the waters ;)

Hello Team Austria, I propose you choose a date for our WWC match.
I think a good choice will be a friday evening, a saturday or a sunday afternoon. The earliest is the best.
See you soon.

Please contact us ASAP with times that your team will be able to race. Earlier the better.

Yeah, hardly any time for racing over here, either :(
Will try to be online once or even twice a week, but I'm in no shape to be competitive. I guess we'll have to withdraw from the WWC, sorry :paperbag

Not quite. More like Team Austria misses the start because their pilots aren't done shagging all the other teams' cheerleader teams ;) Yes, I like that one better.

9th September 2009, 09:58 AM
That's the spirit, El.

I have to admit, I'm just too effin busy at the moment. work, GTA IV and some personal stuff keeps me from training.

It's a pity, but as a replacement we'll train like the famous mad scientists and go for the win next year! And the cheerleaders of course.
