Thought a thread to sort out the race dates would be a good idea.

Does anyone have any particular days in september they deffinitly can not race?

If not, I reckon we should try kicking things off nice and early with a race on the first saturday 5th against... well... whoever wants to go down first :g

Hellfire_WZ
4th August 2009, 02:13 PM
I'll be unavailable on the weekend of the 12-13 and possibly one other weekend too. Will let you know.

Also unavailable before 5PM on weekdays due to starting my teaching career

Amorbis
4th August 2009, 02:28 PM
On weekdays after September I won't be available before 4:30PM due to being at Sixth Form, any time after that on a Week Day I should be fine. Weekends I should usually be available except for the odd Saturday. I'll let you know about anything that happens that might get in the way so we can reschedule if we have to.

OBH
6th August 2009, 04:34 PM
I was thinking, one of you guys (you know, the ones who OWN a ps3 :g) should see if the japanese team want a race on the first saturday 5th.

Their not as frequent here, and with a different time zone id love to get the game out the way early if we can :)

Good luck getting a response from the Japanese Team.

I PMed them weeks ago about racing against team AUS ,still no response.

If you get a bite could you please PM me with WHO actually replied to you.

Cheers

Well it seem Team Nordic wants to go first...

Sunday the 23rd of august - 20.00 GMT
Team Nordic vs. England (aka "The Revenge")

Im good to race on that date and weekend after weekdays after 19.00 GMT. Ill messgae Greenix and get him up to speed on things.

Hellfire_WZ
13th August 2009, 11:36 PM
No good for me mate, I'm out at football on that day and the trains are f*cked so no guarantee I'll be back in time.

Amorbis
14th August 2009, 12:43 AM
I'll be on holiday for two weeks as of Monday the 17th of August and I'll be back around the start of September. If we're having any games in that time I wont be able to take part, sorry for the inconvenience :(.

blackwiggle
14th August 2009, 05:00 AM
Are you guys OK with chalking in a race day against team AUS/NZ on Sat 5th or Sun 6th of Sept,time to be confirmed?

We play team NORDIC the following weekend,if not,the weekend of the 19th 20th of Sept.

Hellfire_WZ
14th August 2009, 09:20 AM
I'm good for that weekend. Anyone else available?

blackwiggle
14th August 2009, 01:51 PM
Which one are you good at,sorry I just want to stop possible confusion..

Was that the 5/6yth Sept or 19/20th you guys might be OK with.

Amorbis
14th August 2009, 02:00 PM
I'd be more likely available for the 19th/20th although I'm sure I can get back into shape quickly for the 5th/6th, but I'd be better off as a reserve.

Hellfire_WZ
14th August 2009, 03:56 PM
I was referring to the 5/6. Can't do the 19th

Hi Team England :p


http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/picture.php?albumid=11&pictureid=710

is more or less out of shape .....
So weŽve decided, that our first WWC 09-match should be some kind of a walkover ... :rolleyes: You guys!
IŽve contacted Haydn (donŽt know if heŽs still your organizer) and he said that Team England is always ready ... I know you are.

My idea:
Team Nordic vs. Team England
Sunday the 23rd of august - 20.00 GMT

A couple of days before the match, weŽll decide on which wipers for each team.

Okay?

Prepare to meet The Reaper, mates :beer

Aka-sho
17th August 2009, 01:23 PM
Dear Team England.

Team Japan will want to race with team England on Sat 12th of September 17:00[GMT] start.

Could you match at this time?

If you cannot manage it, we will change race date & time.

Please reply our Team Schedule thread.

I won't be available for the 12th, hopefully the rest will be able to make it.

Amorbis
17th August 2009, 10:43 PM
My holiday has been postponed and I won't be going until Thursday. I don't think this will affect anything but I think it's best I give everyone notice.

JJPAP
18th August 2009, 10:38 AM
Hi Team England :)

Could any of you, please, confirm if youŽre up for a match vs. Team Nordic (sunday the 23th of august - 20.00 GMT) or not.
If you want to do the match sometime in september instead: No probs!
Just have to gather the troops soon, if youŽre ready for sunday .....

Cheers

Hellfire_WZ
19th August 2009, 06:05 PM
Turns out the trains are now running properly on Sunday so I'll be back in plenty of time. I'm in :)

Andybob also said he could play if needed, so that's three. Any word from Greenix?

JJPAP
20th August 2009, 07:26 PM
We have three players ready for the 23rd, working on a fourth. Will let you know in due course, but the likelihood is it's going ahead.

Brilliant, mate :D
WeŽre ready when ever you guys are.

See you (through an inferno of scattered Gotekis and smoke) :pirate

Hellfire_WZ

Greenix
21st August 2009, 10:00 PM
Damn this has kicked off fast.
I'm gonna need to practice quite a lot if you want me to race on sunday cause I haven't played in ages.. rust is guaranteed on my part.

Anyhow, Sunday - August 23rd - 20:00 GMT is good for me :+

Hellfire_WZ
21st August 2009, 10:34 PM
If you want we can sort out a warmup tomorrow to get you up to speed ;)

Can we consider this our final team then?

Greenix
21st August 2009, 11:45 PM
lol you just want an easy target ;)
So to confirm with everyone:

Team Eng - Hellfire, Andybob, OLOuk and Greenix
Sunday 23rd August 20:00 GMT

....bring it JJPAP.

JJPAP
22nd August 2009, 08:04 AM
....bring it JJPAP.


LOL :dizzy
IŽll spend the entire day to search the shops of Aarhus for a miracle to bring ...

Today or tomorrow, IŽll give you the names of the participants from Team Nordic.

Hosting?
Team England hosts the forward tracks and Team Nordic the reverse - okay?

See you

I'll fill in the final spot as long as no one else wants to race, considering I was in the Nordic meeting. I'm also only available on the sunday so best to see if any other interest is shown.

29th August 2009, 09:04 AM
Guys, have we decided on a final team for today?

EDIT: Ignore me, it's next weekend :redface:

Amorbis
29th August 2009, 03:51 PM
Maybe we should send a PM to everyone in the team that qualified? I'm not sure if everyone has seen this thread and might not know about next weekend's races. I'll send some now and see if I can get some responses.

Edit: I just sent a few out to those who haven't shown any interest (I think I sent one to OBH by accident), hopefully more interest should appear. Also Barnster can't receive PMs for some reason as it refuses to let me send them to him.

andybob35
29th August 2009, 04:46 PM
Ill be about for this, all set for team ANZ :D

Hellfire_WZ
29th August 2009, 04:49 PM
Makes sense, should try and get as many people in as we can. Have you tried to send Barnster a PSN message? He does play regularly so if we can get in touch I'm sure he'll be up for it.

Amorbis
29th August 2009, 06:37 PM
I just left him a message on his profile. If I'm on the PS3 later I'll try to remember to send him a message. With Andybob on board things are shaping up to be just fine :).

To be honest though, I know so little of New Zealands national sports besides rugby, I wouldnt know where to begin the trash talking!

Do kiwis even play sport? :g

silverfoxy
1st September 2009, 04:25 PM
Kiwis are the world's best rugby union team for 3 and 3/4 years out of 4.

Then they go to the World Cup and choke !!!!

Nothing for Team England to worry about !!

Amorbis
2nd September 2009, 11:50 AM
I should be able to take part on Sunday if we have to move it back. Of course we'll have to see how that works for ANZAC. We still need a confirmation from everyone who wants to take part, unfortunately I haven't received any messages back from when I asked around.

Greenix
2nd September 2009, 04:14 PM
I'll fill in the final spot as long as no one else wants to race, considering I was in the Nordic meeting. I'm also only available on the sunday so best to see if any other interest is shown.

This must have gone unnoticed amongst all of the banter on page 4..

Amorbis
2nd September 2009, 04:26 PM
I got a message from OLO and he can't make it this weekend at all unfortunately. Sorry for missing your message Greenix, it would be nice if you can race on Sunday :).

Greenix
2nd September 2009, 07:50 PM
I can I can, just see who else wants to race as well - want as many team mates taking part as possible :)

You can put me on the list but if anyone wants to race they can have my spot :+

andybob35
2nd September 2009, 09:54 PM
Should be good to race on sunday, out late saturday so put me on standby incase im not around. Have messaged xbarnsterx and he seems good for the aussies. We should get a confirmed/standby list ready.

Amorbis
2nd September 2009, 10:22 PM
OK then, here is a list of possible England racers for Sunday:


Amorbis
Greenix

Can any Australians confirm whether they'll be able to move the race to Sunday? And any change in time if we have to?

XBARNSTERX
2nd September 2009, 10:39 PM

I hope I make it. I agreed to race 4 pages ago, and have tried to get as much practice in as possible since :)

As for your plasma, save it all you like, itll just go sailing past me :g

Greenix
3rd September 2009, 12:29 PM
It's a list of those who have confirmed they can race on Sunday - since it has to be moved from Saturday. I'm sure now you have said you are available for the Sunday Amorbis will add you to the list.

6th September 2009, 03:51 PM
I vote Amorbis should clearly get to play 100% next time. Regardless what happens.

Considering he was the highest scoring englishman at the time, having to drop was really harsh.

Hello, Team England.:)

Team Japan will want to race with team England on Sat 26th of September 17:00[GMT] start.
It's said that reach-big7 can participate at this time. Could you match at this time?
If you can't manage it, we will change race time.

6th September 2009, 05:44 PM
Sundays are generally easier for me, but i cant see there being a problem.:)

xBarnsterx and Peh-hok are the 2 yet to race i believe. Peh-hoks no longer on my friend list, ill have to see what he's saying. Amorbis left early so he should clearly get a say (if available of course!).

Amorbis
6th September 2009, 06:40 PM
Thanks for the thought, OBH, I'd be happy to race against Team Japan. Of course we'll have to see what happens in the mean time but for now you can put me down as interested :).

This'll be a tough one, I know that Japanese pilots are some of the best online after quite a few encounters.

Greenix
6th September 2009, 09:41 PM
Jolly good work chappies! Got a nice cup of tea for you all. Still undefeated as a team :rock

For our race against the Japs, I usually get in at about 5pm on a saturday and all our games seem to start 15 mins later then planned so I should be good for it :)

Good to see things coming along nicely. I haven't seen Peh-Hok in a while, he last signed in 3 days ago but I haven't seen him post since around the time of the team qualifiers. I hope he's still available for a race sometime.

It would also be good if we could get a 5th possible racer, not necessary but it would be nice to not have to make compromises during the races for both teams.

23rd September 2009, 06:43 PM
Played peh-hok today, don't think he is aware that he is racing on Saturday, someone should message him sharpish.

OBH
24th September 2009, 01:57 PM
I re added him to my psn list and he was well up for it.

did mention that if he wants in he needs to mention it here, so we should start looking for a replacement (unfortunately!). OLOuks only raced once.

Just in case Peh-Hok or anyone else doesn't turn up we should have a back-up. We need to have all of our bases covered, I'm sure some of you'll be online if we need you anyway, including those that didn't qualify ;).

25th September 2009, 12:17 AM
A pilot that didn't qualify is in Blackpool this weekend to see the lights so will not be around. Good luck though.

What's this Lancashire thing you have got going on Amorbis. Have you moved or are you denying your true roots? :g

Hi guys. Sorry I've been out of the loop for a while, busy with work, holidays etc. I'm up for Saturday 5pm if still needed, will be online anyway, ready to kick ass.

Well, outside of Ulverston the signs have started to say "Lancashire" instead of Cumbria and I found that true to the signs Ulverston did used to be part of it. It also made for a change in the location box ;D.

Also good luck to everyone facing Japan tomorrow!

Unlucky lads, was a hugely frustrating reverse tournament. Better luck next time. We'll have to arrange a grudge match at some stage.

Im going to sit out the scottish match. Feel personally responsible for losing to the Japanese (and immensely gutted), plus ive raced the last 3 anyway.

Next weekend I presume? I don't see anything wrong with that. I'm fine before 1930 too.

Is it possible for Saturday at 8pm? because Scotland are playing against Japan at 5pm. But, we will find out eventually.

Sounds good to me, 8PM is fine. Are you sure you'll be able to handle that on one day though? Two matches is quite a load!

Im half scottish, proud to have a little rabble in me :)

Rabble (Noun)
1. a disorderly crowd of noisy people
2. the low or disorderly part of the populace
3. a disorderly collection

We've got five interested:

I asked OLO today, said he'd be happy to race. We shouldn't be short on the day then :D.

Good luck guys. Think it's best if I just stay out of the way for now ;) Will be battle ready again soon...

Greenix
30th September 2009, 04:42 PM
Sorry guys, been busy past few weeks but thankfully not dead.. not yet anyways. And my my my... Japan... might just be the dark horse of the competition :O

I'm free for the Scots meet if you need me, although I'll have to get some practice. We have to win this, can't let Team AUS and Japan nab the top spots :pirate

Speaking of which, any idea how a 3 way tie is going to be solved if it does happen Haydn?

Hellfire_WZ
30th September 2009, 05:45 PM
Could we use points accumulated? Bit like goal difference in football

OBH
30th September 2009, 05:59 PM
I thought about that but ANZ have used 3 players for a couple of games, theyll be at a massive disadvantage.

On one hand, its deserved for fielding fewer players, but id rather not do that if at all possible.

Could have a 6 man race with 2 players from each team participating perhaps? :) Was the only idea i could think of that wouldnt but ANZ at a disadvantage.

Not 100% sure what should be done :)

Greenix
30th September 2009, 06:11 PM
Could tally up everyones points but knock off the least scoring player's points on every race so we have a score based on 3 racers per race. Then again I guess that could have issues as well.

SaturnReturn
30th September 2009, 06:22 PM
You could do it based on the scores against Scotland as a tie-breaker, seeing as it's coming down to that anyway. You'd have to make sure every team raced with the same number of players in all matches though.

stin
30th September 2009, 07:25 PM
HUH!, look guys whoever you are!, as you aware Scotland will whup yer arses!!!!!!

Hey!, We will be there on Saturday and I hope you all gets drunk before play!

stevie:nod

SaturnReturn
30th September 2009, 07:53 PM
Go Scotland. Beat them all, them they can still use their scores against you guys as a tie breaker for second place in the group. See? It's foolproof. Then again, if there's one team I would trust to mess it up....

6th October 2009, 05:48 PM
We need 2 people to be in the playoff match. Greenix and Hellfire have been the best 2 pilots so far. Do you guys want in??

No date for a race yet, if you have specific times that suit you let me know and ill see if ANZ and japan can make it then.

Hellfire_WZ
6th October 2009, 07:12 PM
If it comes to that, I don't mind. :)

Greenix
6th October 2009, 10:16 PM
If it comes down to a 2v2v2 I'll be up for it :)
Ughh, no pressure.. right?
:cold

Availability wise, I'm free any day after 18:00 GMT and anytime on Sunday.
We need to make sure we have a back up as well.

7th October 2009, 12:10 AM
Any chance you could record it HZ? Would be a awesome watch. :)

Looking at your availability, would Sunday GMT+0 11am be suitable for you two?

Hmmmm, who should we have against TFD??

To my knowledge Hellfire, Greenix, Amorbis and Andybob have played 2/3 with Peh-Hok, XBarnsterX and OLOuk having played 1.

Really dont want to lose this, and really want to compete in it, but ive been in 4 already! If i want to potentially try and blag my way into the final, it'll take the p*ss if i compete in this one too :g

Hellfire_WZ
11th October 2009, 07:58 PM
I'd like to have a bash as it's very likely this will be my final appearence in the competition. Next Sunday evening is the only time I am available on a weekend, but during the week is fine. After that, I am away in Greece from the 23 October to the 1 November.

SaturnReturn
11th October 2009, 08:05 PM
Hey guys

Well done on your victory. You wanna start trying to organise out match a bit sharp-ish? If Hellfire can only do Sunday evenings then that might be fine. That's our usual time for matches. So far all our matches were at 2100GMT+2, so that would be 8 P.M. in English. I'm not sure if there's some weird daylight savings shenanigans going down soon though so will have to check on that.

The only problem at the moment is a lack of certainty of where I'll be. My company is trying to deport me to Denmark, so if it happens suddenly then organisation might have to be passed to someone else.

But anyway, should be start to check availability for Sunday 11th October at 2100GMT+2?

Hellfire_WZ
11th October 2009, 08:07 PM
That's good for me. Clocks don't change here for another couple of weeks so no issues there :)

Amorbis
11th October 2009, 08:54 PM
So would that be 8pm in BST? I could do that, but I'll let other England pilots race first. If they can't then I'll race.

SaturnReturn
11th October 2009, 09:02 PM
Indeed, 8 P.M. Bull Sh1t Time :P I gave up on calling it British Summer Time due to the almost complete lack of summer we had...I mean...you had...over there, in Engeland. ;)

After asking around it would seem that Andybob is interested in playing on Sunday. We'll have to ask Greenix, OLO and Peh as well.

So far possible racers include:

Andybob
Hellfire
Amorbis


I've raced in 3 so far so I'll sit out for anyone who has raced less.

Greenix
12th October 2009, 10:35 PM
I've only raced in 2 (counting the 2v2v2) so count me in :D

Sorry Barnster. :lol Do you want me to add you to the list?

Interested pilots for Sunday the 18th of October 8PM BST:

Hellfire

Amorbis
Andybob
Barnster
OLO


I think that's a good amount of people, we should have no problems with attendance to the match.

Update - Currently no Yeldar or Luxo on Friday. I'm always a potential uncertainty on Friday nights. So unfortunately for Mad-Ice it doesn't like it'll work out. :( Sorry Mad.

Sunday we have an awesome foursome now - hopefully will have a backup too, just in case.

So I believe Sunday is on - pending final confirmation with Dutchmen. (One of them hasn't quite mastered the days of the week yet).

Amorbis
15th October 2009, 04:25 PM
I can make it on Friday most likely, but still no definite time? I can make it after about 5:30PM BST. Sunday will be fine too.

Unfortunately OLO can't make it on Friday, so only me and Barnster so far for Friday?

Mad-Ice
15th October 2009, 04:56 PM
That is just too bad for me then. Anyway, good races for all and may the best and most lucky win :D.

After a talk with Mad last night when I only knew Greenix was unavailable for tonight I was going to suggest we do not need to have this match this weekend. I felt this weekend might not be entirely comfortable for either team and we are in the semis :P

But if we're all ok with this then let's go for it.

Just a thought..

KGB
16th October 2009, 03:21 PM
what day are you doing it on then? Come on England.

Amorbis
16th October 2009, 05:21 PM
I looks like it's on Sunday at 8PM BST. Possible England players:


Amorbis
OLO
Greenix
Hellfire
Barnster
Andybob

Nothing solid as far as who is first to race, but I suppose we can decide on Sunday if necessary.

SaturnReturn
16th October 2009, 05:33 PM
Yeldar's told me that he's only a maybe for Sunday. I think if we were missing yeldar and Mad-Ice then I would want to postpone. Will try to get a more definite answer out of him by tomorrow evening and let you guys know.

Yeldar still should be there. Luxoflux is having problems with Icaras online though. Apparently it keeps changing views on him and doesn't happen with any other ships. AnErare is constantly getting signed out of PSN, which could be a bit of a problem. But hopefully it will be fine tomorrow.

AnErare

Doubles ladder you say? I'd be up for some of that! I'll need a partner as eLhabib can't race until next year, maybe my eliminator-partner-to-be could help me here? Unless of course he already has a partner.

Is there any news on a runner up match against Australia? I'd be willing to give it a go if that's OK with everyone.
