Welcome in the new competition by team !
Keywords are : friendly, easy and enjoy.
Social group here ! (http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/group.php?groupid=45)
Chat on PS3 called "Xpand channel", request for an invitation.

Create a team :


invit some friends in order to make your team. National teams are welcome, but it's not an obligation.
One team can have up to 9 players. Every 1st day of each month, a team can switch one or two player.


Play a match :


The main goal of the Xpand teams is to play WipEout with friends. Give a rendez-vous or improvise a match if you cross some wipers online !
You can play with 2, 3 or 4 players in your team, regardless number of opponents.
A match is a tournament, hoster team choose the options : speed, number of laps, weapons, pilotage assistance, and barell rolls. Just one prohibition : you can't play a no weapon and no barell roll tournament.
NEW UPDATE FEB.2010 : tournaments with 3 or 4 teams are possible.
I've chosen some official Xpand tournaments :



HD Campaign Tour : 8 HD tracks forward (4-5 laps in Rapier or 5-7 laps in Phantom)
Fury Campaign Tour : 8 Fury tracks (4-5 laps in Rapier or 5-7 laps in Phantom)
No Campaign Tour : 8 HD tracks reverse (4-5 laps in Rapier or 5-7 laps in Phantom)
Forward Tour : 12 tracks forward (4-5 laps in Rapier or 5-7 laps in Phantom)
Reverse Tour : 12 tracks reverse (4-5 laps in Rapier or 5-7 laps in Phantom)
Free Tour : 8-12 free-choice races (4-5 laps in Rapier or 5-7 laps in Phantom)
Enduro-XL Tour : 3 free-choice races (15 laps in Rapier or 20 laps in Phantom)
Enduro-M Tour : 5 free-choice races (9 laps in Rapier or 12 laps in Phantom)



NEW UPDATE FEB.2010 : If a player is disconnected, he scores the rank of the last place (0 points with 8 players, but 4 points if only 4 players in race), but if the players are agree, they can arrange in a gentlemen agreement. (eg : insert the DC player in this position when he was DC).
NEW UPDATE FEB.2010 : After a disconnection, the hoster have to restart a tournament, respecting the rule of inverted grid. He have to invite the players from last to first of the last race.



Win a match :


Case 1 : each Team have same numbers of players, it's easy! All points count, do the sum of each team will give the winner team.
Case 2 : Team A with 2 players, Team B with 3 or 4 players : Team A score the sum of his two players. Team B score the sum of his two best players at the end of the tournament. (and not the sum of the 2 best in each race)
Case 3 : Team A with 3 players, Team B with 4 players : Team A score the sum of his three players. Team B score the sum of his three best players at the end of the tournament. (and not the sum of the 3 best in each race)
Draws are possible.


ELO Ranking :


NEW UPDATE FEB.2010 : Elo ranking is calculated by Multiplayer Elo Calculator (http://elo.divergentinformatics.com/) created by TorquedSoul.


Preseason :


Preseason start now.
You can exchange as many players as you wish before 1st february.


Championship :


February 1st, a championship will start with all team who want participate.
If 5 teams or less are registred, the championship will endure 1 month.
If 8 teams or less are registred, the championship will endure 2 months.
If 11 teams or less are registred, the championship will endure 3 months.
If 12 teams or more are registred, the championship will endure 2 months, teams will be separated in groups, with a final.


Rules in the Xpand championship :


Each team have to meet others.
When team A meets Team B, each team host a tournament. These tournaments are independant.
A team who win a tournament score 3 points, the loser score 1 point. If it's a draw, each team score 2 points. (so in a meeting, a team score from 2 to 6 points).
All unexpected situations will be discussed.

Ultimate rules :


Be fair, be gentle(wo)men, and enjoy.

I've created a chatroom on PSN called "Xpand channel", and I've invited some of you. Keep this chat in your PS3 and invite your teammates in.

Then, when you are playing with your friends, you can enter in the chatroom and maybe you'll see other teams ready to race ! :hyper

Cool, what about amplificated? We could do with a few more yet.

As for names, the DP part of your name gave me a couple of ideas, both too disgusting to repeat. :twisted

You're not the first to point that out KGB - my mate refers to me as that "disgusting" name frequently :)

EDIT: Team Plod is my current idea for a name. Any more?

ACE-FLO
10th January 2010, 07:28 PM
I was thinking 'Trotters International Traders' or Team TIT for short? :D

or... The League of Extraordinary Gentle Friends... :paperbag

The Pies In The Sky (or The PITS) :rock (plus a curry :hyper me!)

Teh Flying Knights of Nih (Holy Grail/ Monty Python reference) :mr-t

Kiki's Delivery Service (bit girly, but its sutdio Ghibli - so it's justified) :paperbag

should I carry on?

alterego
11th January 2010, 08:01 AM
Hi All!

I'm in!

@ Ace-Flo I really love Myiazaki's 'Kiki's delivery service' film, I think another team name maybe in the same direction: "Totoro's" or "Porco Rosso Team" ;)

Read You soon

ACE-FLO

Dirty Suggestion



Kiki's Delivery Service

Random Suggestion

Dirty suggestion + random suggestion= Kinky Delivery Service

Or if you really want those initials in there, and can ignore made up words with no meaning, then you can also makes it rhyme with KGB's initials:Kinky Delivery Pervice

If only ACE had made the dirty suggestion then you could have had: Kinky Delivery Perv-ACE & Co

Too far?

Lance
11th January 2010, 05:54 PM
How about a Team Porco Rosso with an anti-grav Savoia-Marchetti?
Naah. Porco is an antiquarian with an appreciation for unsullied classics.

And so is Hayao Miyazaki.

11th January 2010, 07:38 PM
I'm really trying, but failing miserably. My mind keeps returning to my initial thought. All I'm getting is Deep Phantom or Dark Penetration. Sick! :P

EDIT: I wouldn't mind trying both.

15th January 2010, 08:33 PM
Woo! Go team!:rock:hyper

Maybe that should be our name, "The Go Team". I thought it sounded familiar so I looked it up and it's actually fairly appropriate as they're one of the artists from the Little Big Planet soundtrack (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K4FaGacwtd4) (potential team theme song?). To make it more WipEout relevant we could call ourselves "The 3,2,1 Go! Team". Too cheesy? :P

Ace3cube
15th January 2010, 08:59 PM

I take into account all the reported matches (http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AqkOSVTDzvnYdGNRa25PMzgteXRaNDdzMXVyMExfM lE&hl=fr) for Elo ranking & general statistics (http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=0AqkOSVTDzvnYdHdCckNac1J2Sy04WDlMYTd4X0RCb EE&hl=fr).

From February 1st, the teams who want will start a championship, so there will be official Championship meetings, but friendly ones will be always possible.
And if it will work good, we will add an elimination cup...

I'm happy to say I'm now a member of the BRBs thanks to KGB's invite. I hope that we can all look forward to a successful competition. :)

It should also help me get back up to scratch, I've had a few other things to occupy me as of late.

This is supposed to be about friendly competition, so please let's keep it that way folks.:)

I'm not sure what the status of The Go! Team a.k.a. The Highly Flammables is. After getting a new LED TV which apparently makes WipEout HD unplayable, z1r0rEi has told me he's not going to be playing it any more. Also, I think yeldar has taken a break from the game. As z1 isn't around I assume he won't be organising things either. I'm enjoying a break from organising things myself, so unless someone else on our team wants to take up the reins the our future is uncertain. I will get in touch with other team members and see what they think.

Thats weird if it has such a great impact on gameplay because AFAIK these "led TV's" are basically Rear Projection LCD TV's, where back lighting is implemented with LED's.. The real LED TV's with OLED technology are in development.

Is this an LED-sideeffect, or what?

About change in environmental setup - u remember we talked about this in December? I moved and now I'm ~3.5 to 4 m to an 37" (<1m) LCD. Took me approx. 1 week to adjust - anyway, it's still way too small. Upgrade will happen soon. Cheapest >= 50" LCD I'd get.

Could you be more specific on why (this) LED (is it full LED backlite?) sucks for you when playing WOHD, please? I feel really sorry for this as it was always a pleasure racing you (and got kicked butt most of the times)

I'm posting to ask about a standardised disconnection procedure. Recently it has be a real pain when someone disconnects (I know it's not intentional) and the race has to be restarted regardless of the results. I find this to be unfair to those who did not get disconnected as much as for the person that did. Instead of restarting the race and disregarding the points that were earned, a new way of dealing with the situation is needed.

IDReaper had a good idea of using your best position from the two races. For example, if someone was to disconnect the race would continue and points be obtained. The race would then run again with the racer who disconnected and depending on the best position from the races the relevant points are awarded and the racer who disconnected receives whatever points that got in the race they participated in. This eliminates frustration for everyone and keeps things going.

Any other ways we could improve things?

SaturnReturn
30th January 2010, 11:49 PM
Enjoy your dead franchise.

I joined it got to the top and now I dont care about it anymore

Since HD's launch the top has continuously been moving. No-one has truly reached it IMO and as long as true fans are devoted to it and keep supporting it and pushing the limits, no-one ever truly will. For those same reasons, the franchise will never be dead. Even if the industry doesn't keep it alive, which it still might, then we will.:)

EDIT: Also, I have a spare slot in my PSN friend list now for anyone who tried before but found it full.

IDReaper had a good idea of using your best position from the two races.~snip~

Can you give an example per say so I can understand it better? Sounds good to me, just that I don't understand what you mean "best postiion from the races" part kinda thing. Sorry for being a pain mate :paperbag

SaturnReturn
31st January 2010, 12:05 AM
I never really had a problem with disconnection restarts , as they always happened at the start of the race and were fairly rare in the World Cup matches. If everyone knows that a d/c causes a restart they know to stop immediately. As long as everyone knows where they stand it's usually OK. If it does happen frequently then I guess it would be very annoying.

Anything can happen in these races, and just because someone is in a good position, even on lap 5, it doesn't mean they'll finish that way. Having said that, it is more annoying to almost complete a race and for someone to d/c. Perhaps say, only restart if it's within the first 3 laps or something? You can also try to invite the racers in the order of their position when the d/c happened, so that the guy on front will probably be first on the grid if he's at the top of the lobby. Although the host usually starts first and order isn't always guaranteed, as people sometimes join and get slotted in the middle.

Perhaps you could also allow a maximum number of restarts per team, after which they lose some points for frequent disconnections. Or even number of restarts per player, before that player has to sit out. That way it could carry on with one team at a slight disadvantage with one less player, which may be a suitable compensation for the other team having to deal with the frustration of their opponents disconnects.

But anyway, just some ideas there.

kaori
31st January 2010, 12:08 AM
If I understood, imagine that, you race :
1. Icaras
2. Harimau
3. Feisar
4. AG-Systems
5. Piranha
DSC. Goteki 45

So we restart the race and the new results are :
1. Feisar
2. Harimau
3. Goteki 45
4. Piranha
5. Icaras
6. AG-Systems

Feisar and Icaras score 8 points
Harimau : 6 points
Goteki 45 : 5 points
AG-Systems & Piranha : 4 points


You can also try to invite the racers in the order of their position when the d/c happened, so that the guy on front will probably be first on the grid if he's at the top of the lobby

Yes I always do that, but sometimes, a player takes too time to join and lose some place on the grid ! The more important is to be fair

Amorbis
31st January 2010, 12:43 AM
Koari presented the idea better, which does feel OK. I bring this up because of disconnections at the very end of the race where perhaps some people have already finished. At least with having two races where you keep your best points and the person that disconnected getting points everyone can be a bit happier.

IDReaper
31st January 2010, 01:59 AM

It seems to be a good idea to sort out the DC problem.

Can we apply it to yesterday's match?

I don't want anyone to be hit by a messy hosting :) When we had to restart last race i invited my team first... It wasn't intentional, i thought it gonna be random order on a grid... Sorry, that was a first time when i was hosting a tournament.

Great match BTW :)

PS : what were the results tonight between team Poland and BRB ?

The second half of the match had to be postponed due to some members having to go. The current score is BRB's 103 Poland 129, however, if we didn't have to restart Moa Therma and Ubermall (where we got 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 8th,) it would be a different story...

This restarting races over and over is a pain. Personally I think that if you disconnect during a race the result should stand and then the member who left can rejoin after. This would take away all doubt that someone is doing it on purpose, which I think some of us believe could happen. As a general rule it doesn't happen much, It may happen less if this rule was included.

Kanar, be warned.

Be assured I'm certainly not proud of what happened here. Just woke up with a good headache this morning. Wanted to apologise to Vartazian's friends here, seems like I forced the guy to the wall, which is not a smart move at all. Slowly but surely, my contribution here degraded itself. I've started a lot of banters recently, so I'm going to take my distances with this place, don't want to pollute all these threads with my incapacity to control myself. Seems like I forgot it's just a game we're playing.

Dark_Phantom_89
31st January 2010, 09:52 AM
Well our result is a little controversial, so I included both. We still need to play the second half.

Results by restarting tracks:
Barrel Roll Barbarians: 103
Team Poland: 129

Results without restarting tracks (DNF gets 0 points - ACE-FLO and Klocki_LEGO disconnected)
Barrel Roll Barbarians: 114
Team Poland: 118

Either way, Team Poland is winning so far, but look at the difference in scores.

Also, with restarting tracks, Klocki_LEGO was the MVP, but without restarting tracks, it was me.

@Kaori.

I'm sure you haven't mate, But at the moment it's turning a one hour race into a two hour race, making everyone annoyed and hard to keep track of scores. If that idea doesn't fly then I would suggest awarding the DC player a set amount of points and move on to the next race. It totally destroys the game when we have to restart tracks.

kaori
31st January 2010, 10:05 AM
An other idea can be a mix of your idea and IDReaper's one.

The player who disconnected rejoin in next race and his points in this race count twice...
But only in case of the pilot was in first half of ranking in the disturbed race.
If the disconnection hit a player who was in second half of standing, it's 0 point or the points of last place if there are 7 players or less in race. (because I don't want a guy who could just score 2 or 3 points in a race, and because he was disconnected, he can score a double eight in next race)

I took 114-118 for archives results and Klocki_LEGO & Dark_Phantom_89 like MVPs

If someone think it was done on purpose please tell me.
I don't think BR Barbarians did, I would never thought they did.

We've joined "Xpand-friendly league" to compete in fair way so I hope rules will be sorted soon.


BTW: When player is disconnected during the race, he gets DNF and 8th place?

Don't highlight certain parts of the quote in order to suggest I'm accusing you of cheating please. I'm not. Also it's my view, not the BRBs. I've had no discussion with any team mates about it.

These disconnections have happened since the game was released and has been discussed many times. No one likes playing the same track over and over again, and I do believe it is in the back of some peoples minds (including mine, I admit. Very cynical of me) that there may be something astray when it happens. I just would like a set rule that is fair to everyone which would include no restarts.

This restarting races over and over is a pain. ...in the ass!


Personally I think that if you disconnect during a race the result should stand and then the member who left can rejoin after. This would take away all doubt that someone is doing it on purpose, which I think some of us believe could happen. you know, now that you mention it - it puts doubts in my head too!!! (not that I am accusing anyone, just that it is a possibility you know?) Thanks for pointing that one out mate! Hmmm... thinking hats come back on :|


As a general rule it doesn't happen much, It may happen less if this rule was included. Yes, meaning that with the current scoring system employed in HD Fury - that would earn a pilot 0 points for disconnecting... seems a bit harsh but necessary imo! The way I see it, if an F1 drivers car had a fault, he'd have to leave the race - the race still goes on regardless and the track is not repeated for the sake of one F1 driver. Why can't it be the same here? If a Pilot disconnects - they sit that one out and get 0 points for it - the track doesnt get repeated the tournament carries on with the disconnected pilot taking part in the following race as normal.

Oh, and any xpand tourney would be better hosted on a race by race basis - instead of hosting a tournament, as Disconnections will suck the fun out of our allocated gaming time for that session... some of us do have other schitt to get on with. Last night, it took the best part of 15 mins to run one race because of DC's mid tourney - and the hoister having to re-host the tourney from cut off point... If hosted on a single race by race basis - this problem would have been halved!

I supported the idea of single races for these types of events when this discussion came up before. I changed my mind a bit though. Single races are a pain in the arse too. People's places aren't randomised properly and you often end up with the same starting order race after race. It can give one team a big advantage if it's really bad. Tournament formats are definitely fairer in terms of grid placing.

I think what I suggested at some point before was to race in 4 race tournaments. Each 4 races each team can have 1 restart, after which the 4 race tournament carries on. Then if one player disconnects 2 or 3 times, depending on tourney length, then they drop out, and are replaced by a sub, or not if there's no sub available. If disconnections are happening on both sides all the time then postponing would be the best option.

Strangely, after all the discussion, we didn't really have any issues in the World Cup. I think there was only 1 restart. I guess we got lucky, and there have definitely been more disconnections recently.

Giving someone zero points might seem fair, and I wouldn't really have much of a problem with it, but comparing it to reliability on F1 races doesn't really work IMO, because genuine disconnections are often more to do with the reliability of the PSN than the individuals' hardware or connection, although not always.

ACE-FLO
31st January 2010, 12:57 PM
Good ideas SR :)



Giving someone zero points might seem fair, ...but ...~snip~
True, well said - and my example for F1 was just for reference as a working system. Say an F1 teams car gets shorted out mid race - that is comparable to a DC imo... yes, we are playing on a virtual race track whereby DC mid race and real life technical probs with an F1 car seem worlds apart, but essentially - it is still racing, and we are having probs which draw a parrallel with F1 in that regard.

The whole thing with restarting a race due to DCs is going to cause problems, especially now that some of us (including me) think DCing could be used as a tactic to get different results from the restarted race, in future races... hmmm...

Let's hope we get this sorted quickly :)

Dark_Phantom_89
31st January 2010, 01:05 PM
I'm all for counting a disconnect as 0 points and allowing the disconnected player to return for the next race from now on.

SaturnReturn
31st January 2010, 01:05 PM
I never really thought badly about disconnections myself. I can't think why anyone would do it knowing how a race can turn around at any time. When a Frenchman disconnected against TFD in the World Cup, it actually benefited us, not the French. But if it started happening frequently after some racers had finished, then perhaps I'd be more skeptical.

Maybe it's that simple - no restarts after lap 3 or 4, or something.

Amorbis
31st January 2010, 01:08 PM
Disconnecting within this community seems too unlikely, I don't think anyone in the Xpand league would do that. I know people could build a reputation for disconnecting, but whose to say it wouldn't be their internet at fault?

If we were to go down the DNF route it would help speed things up. Sacrificing points for getting things done seems OK enough for me and if a person's disconnects persist then it's probably better that they sit out so they can sort things out. But with sitting out we'd have to use Saturn's idea of four tournaments with four races, just so a team isn't severely disadvantaged. This way scores wouldn't be so changed as seen in yesterday's BRB vs. Poland match. I'm not accusing Poland of cheating, after all we had as many disconnects as them.

ACE-FLO

No restarts after lap 3/4 sounds good to me. Lap 4 sounds like the best option as that way the results won't change as much as they could have in lap 3. But lap 3 is quite far into the race when you think about it.

ACE-FLO
31st January 2010, 01:16 PM
OK - sounds good, but um - Lap 4 from when? I mean - who decides it's lap 4? If in an 8 player race Deepmix is leading and in lap 4 whils I'm in last place and in lap 3 - and say Pilot X disconnects whilst he/she in in lap 3 - does that race get restarted or does it carry onwards and a penalty of 0points awarded to DC'd pilot?

IDReaper
31st January 2010, 01:18 PM
The four tourney's idea sounds like a good one too. However the grid will be affected, not to the degree of single races but it could make a difference. Still sounds like it is more of a benefit though.

Also by ACE-FLO's logic I see the flaw in my previous plan as far a cheating. Say a player is in last but has a first place team member n the race. Said player d/c. The re-race starts and the d/c gets first. So instead of 8+_+_+0 for the two racers it becomes 8+8+_+_ giving that team a massive advantage. Although I doubt anyone here would do that it is exploitable.

@ACE-FLO
We could just go by the final lap indicator, everyone hears that at the same time.

DNF = 0 point

It's the best option if you ask me. Clear and simple rule.

Amorbis
31st January 2010, 01:21 PM
I would of thought that if 1st place is on lap 4 then it should count as lap 4. If the person in first was to disconnect then it would quite an annoyance, though. And if someone in last was to get disconnected whilst the person in first was on lap 4 and the person in last on lap 3 that would also be frustrating. But we can't please everyone and keep the tournament going at a steady pace, or can we? :|

IDReaper
31st January 2010, 01:23 PM
Well I have a question, if some d/c and gets 0 points, but rejoins before the next race, will the game place that player in pole position? If so then I think we can just stick with that as fair.

Guys - who out you long time Pulsers ever raced TeamLink Division (basically xpand but on PSP Pulse) with Archman and us last year? We had clear rules for DC pilots - and a whole new scoring system to boot.

ATM - HD Fury, like Pulse allocates points in tourneys in the following format:

1st - 8points
2nd - 6points
3rd - 5points
4th - 4points
5th - 3points
6th - 2points
7th - 1points
8th - 0points

Meaning Disconnected Pilot gets 0points - even if he Disconnected in the 5th lap whilst he/she is in the top 3 postions... seems harsher now doesn't it?

A revised point scoring system for Xpand tourneys which allow for Disconnected pilots to recieve points as a means of compensatory allocation could be quite beneficial in the interest of fairness... let me explain.

Here is a points system I have worked out for Xpand league tourneys:

1st - 12 points
2nd - 10 points
3rd - 8 points
4th - 6 points
5th - 5 points
6th - 4 points
7th - 3 points
8th - 2 points
Disconnection - 1 point

What do you guys think? ofcourse - it would mean that someone who knows programming would have to make a C+ app to sort the data for points though... but hey, it's a solution. :)

As long as we all happy with the 0points for DC rule - we got it sorted! :)

Kaori - can you update the rules now?


It's the hoster will start first, then it depends of the order the hoster invite players.

Would it be fairer for the hoster to invite pilots into the room like from team a, then team b then team a then team b etc - so the start grid order is fairer also?

@ ACE, I know, no problem ;)

I agree for rules DC= 0 point, but we should look case by case, just imagine, you are leading 5 seconds in advance, and your are DC in end of 4th or in 5th lap. I remember it happened me or leungbok during a tournament.
In this case, you can reinsert the DC player in the rating.

So, I can add this rule, DC=0 point, but if the players are agree to reinsert the DC player in the classification of the race, they can in a gentlemen agreement, because Xpand is a friendly and fair league.
Then, when they will tell us the score, I don't want heard "but we have a disconnection and...". if they are not agree, DC= 0 point, that will be simple.

31st January 2010, 02:17 PM
Ok, I've added this 2 new rules :



NEW UPDATE FEB.2010 : If a player is disconnected, he scores the rank of the last place (0 points with 8 players, but 4 points if only 4 players in race), but if the players are agree, they can arrange in a gentlemen agreement. (eg : insert the DC player in this position when he was DC).
NEW UPDATE FEB.2010 : After a disconnection, the hoster have to restart a tournament, respecting the rule of inverted grid. He have to invite the players from last to first of the last race.

I hereby put myself up for auction (don't worry, I'm cheap:p).

I sent another PM to JFthebestJan. I've seen him online several times recently, so it's not that he's unavailable or anything, so hopefully I'll get some kind of reply. If I don't have something by tomorrow I'm either leaving the team or trying a hostile takeover:)
Edit : Hostile takeover as in pretending JF is not on the team and trying to set something up without him. Anyone else on the team interested? (And no offense JF, but you need to check in. You started the team. If you have no intentions of continuing then say so and let someone else take over. At least say something)

Bad news from my side (Team Rollcage Rebels). Well, I've played a lot of
WipEout HD during the last two months and it seems like that I've injured my
pointing fingers to some degree due to lots of airbraking. :? After playing online
a lot and after having set four new ZONE records lately (some tracks are very
demanding on the airbrakes) it seems like that I have to give my fingers some
rest for a certain amount of time.

Hello, I give you some news for the end of the season 1.

If some teams won't play their matches before saturday night, I'll give you a timetable, all postponed meetings will be played this sunday.

If a team won't be able to present 2 players, it will lose the match and won't score any point.

Look the calendar !

After this week-end, the ranking match and the big final between the 2 best teams can be played :hyper

Are you wanting all remaining games played or just the ones we are behind in Kaori?

EDIT: Don't answer that, I just had a look and obviously we do need to play them all.

Reserve day, sunday 21th, this is the provisionnal calendar if no match is played before sunday.

It's impossible to compact more timetable for Group B, because zero of five rounds have been completed :frown:

I'd like to make public excuses to Cool Runnings, Charming Melon Menace and Highly Flammables for the late progress with my team. I take the blame, but i also have to let you know that i'm running the progression of North American Team, and even if it doesn't look difficult to organize things, its getting complicated with schedules and time zones. That's why i'm getting 3 races late in Xpand. I can't really race in week days, since i'm working until 5 and most teams are from Europe, meaning they're already in bed by this time. I can only race on week-ends, and most of my team mates also have complicated availability.

This upcoming week-end we have to race Team France and Cool Runnings. I'll put some efforts in making things advance more. Thank you for understanding.

Hmm!, personally I think all of group B should be disqualified for not being arsed :dizzy.

How to say/write this ... ?

We played 3 xpand tourneys - was big fun. Tried for the last two (round 4 and _after_ that round 5) for two to three weeks but there were some schedule obstacles - not on our side.

Then, on short notice we'd perform 2 tournaments last weekend. Didn't work for the Melons and also for one of our groups opponents. Sucks!

Got ranked one above DNF ... At least not last :xtree

Don't get me wrong. No ranting and no offence. This is just a hint that regrading the schedule (communications and timeframe -> esp. when there are cross timezone races and the teams won't get together) there is room for improvement.

Looking forward to season 2. And I'm sure the Melons will improve compared to season 1. :beer

Bastards, mateo and myself are ready for the battle on rank 9 on track . :sonar

They couldn't play against Cool Running and Highly Flammables yesterday, I can't punish these two teams because they were ready for race yesterday (I spent lot of times on Xpand Channel), so I gave them points like they have beat Rollcage Rebels.

Don't forget, you can use our social group (http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/group.php?groupid=45) for contact opponents, it's easier to have one place in order to communicate.

For the reason given here (http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/showpost.php?p=168726&postcount=216), I can't currently play the game as I used to be.
Hellfire, Andybob, or Greenix should take over the team for the time being.

Do you know when you'll get a new PS3?

Not seen any posts up in the Xpand league social group about when us BRBees are racing The Watchmen ??? Ace3Cube has proposed Sunday this weekend coming.

I understand many may wanna watch some footy at the time proposed, but if we know who - then atleast we can maybe know isn't, and therefore maybe available to race. S come on chaps, let's roll this one out :)

Also, I can race most evenings, and weekends cept saturday afternoons, but after 6pm is fine on Saturdays :)

Also, I see that only 4 teams are ready thus far. It's a good start guys, if anyone wants to get into a team or make one of their own - why not join the Xpand social group and post your availablity in the WIperMarket thread there? Team racing rocks the house down :)
