View Full Version : Avalon: Shockwave (Sep 17/18/19)

11th September 2010, 10:46 AM
Ok, first I have some news which I'll get out of the way. There's a very big chance that this may be my last Avalon. Now I know what some of you may be thinking - "Oh, he's only done 4 events and now he's sodding off," but rest assured, it isn't like that at all. The end of this month sees a change in my life - I'll be a lot busier than I used to be, which means less PS3 time, and more sadly, less WipEout time.

I have spoken to Kanar about everything, and he was really great and understood completely. Of course, I don't want Avalon to die, and will do my best to help out in any future events. However, I feel that this is such a strong community that the event as well as our love for the game will never truly die - it's been 2 years and HD is still going strong, especially now with the Avalon Cup.

I hope I did ok with the whole events. I'd like to thank Kanar for asking me to take over, it was a lovely surprise reading your PM that day. I'd also like to thank MrSmadSmartAlex, Kaori and TropicMoon10 for all their hard work hosting the Pulse and Pure sessions - it couldn't have been done without you guys. Finally, last but not least, I'd like to extend my gratitude to every single person who was at the event, however long or short. It was really great to see the community together and there were some good times in the Chat Room - we also got a fantastic collection of videos for the Avalon library and Woopzilla especially did an amazing job in this department.

I'll wrap this up now, as nobody likes to read a wall of text. Let's get on with the event!

11th September 2010, 10:47 AM

In partnership with the Avalon Cup. (http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7658) If you would like to have your round in the cup, this would be the perfect time to do so!

Shockwave... Good name, That's dope man! For sure I'll do my best to be around & help if needed during this week-end. And I'm happy for you, glad to read there's some good changes in your real life, enjoy & leave for a moment world of wipeout lol, you did so much for the community already. SL/TT challenges for a year now; and the huge wipeout week-ends... So a massive thank you for everything mate. See you soon on the tracks!

11th September 2010, 12:45 PM
Shame to hear you won't be with us as much, DP. I take it you're either heading off to University or getting married? If it's the latter, my condolences.

I'll definetely be in this Avalon and a few after if possible (might not be that possible considering going back to Uni and got work to take my mind off it), but if you need someone to come up with a SL challenge every week I'm more than happy to try. :3

11th September 2010, 01:06 PM
so you made it happen ;)
i'm sorry to hear that is your last Avalon DP... :(
but i understand the reason and as you said to me yourself, real life comes first :)
so good luck on everything you decide for your life my friend! :)
personally, my college work goes great and i think i'll be available on most part of the cup.
i hope yeldar and woopzilla be around again this time^^
anyway if you need help, i'll try my best to host some races whenever i can.

finally, i wanna thank you DP for all your efforts and sacrifices you made to organize all the Avalon cups and the SL/TT challenges! BIG :+ to you :)

11th September 2010, 01:09 PM
Your last Avalon!?
Sorry to hear that :frown:
Oh well, I'll defintetely be on to make your last Avalon a great one 8)
Btw, Avalon: ShOckWave? good name sir!

11th September 2010, 02:45 PM
That's kinda sad...
Anyways,let's make this (one heck of an) Avalon as memorable and as exciting as possible!
ShOckWavE:Great name.

13th September 2010, 11:34 AM
definitely loving the name; this is a nice picture too; I'll probably take some good schockwaves online... rockets => Icaras' back on fire/exploding nicely...
And bad shockwaves in my own ass if I'm playing too much, the wife won't appreciate that.

But I'll try my best to be around as much as possible, and as you said DP, only 7 meetings remaining in the cup' round 1, so guys, if you can't arrange something during this week then DO IT next week-end! Already planned mine next sunday;

Xtriko you're a dead man :mr-t, taking your crazy funky youtube vid as a declaration of war, you'll feel my wrath with a good JB schockwave into your ^* :g

13th September 2010, 02:05 PM
your last one? :frown:

*sings Weve Only Just Begun by The Capenters*

count me in, and hope to use the skills ive got from you, against you! :lol

*that is if my stupid internet connection is working

13th September 2010, 10:46 PM
I'm in bro! If you want I can see if my man ACE-FLO is avalible? :)

13th September 2010, 11:56 PM

16th September 2010, 03:33 PM
I have no idea of my availability [New job], but I will appear at some time, and will hold up[ HOST] the Wipeoutzone AVALON Flag when possible.
It's all about the AVALON chat room's.
If you see somebody from the Zone come online, invite them into the chat room, this perpetuates AVALON.
That's the way it ends up running over several days consistently:+

17th September 2010, 04:08 PM
thx all the zoners (u know who u r) that joined earlier. :+
we had some fun races! :)

17th September 2010, 05:16 PM
Join me on adhoc party (euro), world A, lobby 04, for play WipEout Pure ;)

17th September 2010, 07:10 PM
I can't get online at the moment, anyone else having trouble?

Great to race with you all this morning/afternoon. I'll back for some more punishment at some point :+.

Thanks to all who raced against me today. :3 I got videos of all of Saturn's races with me in from Vineta to Sol, they'll be up on youtube tomorrow. They're not the best - anyone familiar with my lack of piloting skills will realise that before they've even loaded them up. Vineta is the only one I'm even close to the front. ^^;

I may (not) be able to race around 2 to 3 pm GMT+8 and perhaps at night around 11 to 12 GMT+8.I'm very sorry that I was not able to race yesterday.
I really hate this weekend.My relatives from overseas are coming over and the place I am eating at is quite far from my home.I hate this weekend as I also have quite a bit of schoolwork to do and I'll be missing out:frown:

18th September 2010, 12:56 PM
Had a nice session this morn, thnx chaps! :+

18th September 2010, 05:22 PM
argh couldn't spend lot of time so far, with the wife around and my epic meeting with X. I'll do my best to join you guys more tonight. Damn it's DP89's last avalon, and maybe the last avalon ever too, so I'll join you guys for sure!

19th September 2010, 12:23 AM
That's weird. My PS3 just turned itself off. Oh well, seems I missed out on most of the fun today as everyone just disappeared. Think we must all be getting old. Maybe I'll catch up for longer with all you WO geriatrics on Sunday.

19th September 2010, 12:23 PM
Missed both evening sessions so far but been doing the afternoon. :(
Was at a party last night, sorry fellas!

19th September 2010, 04:30 PM
Was nice racing with some,but had to leave abruptly due to my younger bro.
Damn him

Your not the only one Novide who though the ramming extreme.
I have seldom been in races where it was so bad. as last nights Avalon.[I suspect collision detection lag was partly to blame since the boards were full]
I only managed a few races before finding it too frustrating, god knows how many times I got shunted off the track on Sebenco, Ubermall and Sol 2 then to be put back by the wuss wagon at a stupid point only to go off again:|

20th September 2010, 08:15 AM
thank you everyone for all the fun (and some brutal ones) races during those 3 days :)
it was also nice chatting with all of you! (i especially enjoyed the vendetta with the drunken ninja master ;))

special thx goes to DP for organizing this event (hope its not your last! ;))
and of course to kanar (who is very friendly :))
cheers everyone :+

22nd September 2010, 11:19 PM
Hi all.. found this Avalon, well rather stressful. had a few gremlins!
anyhoo, hope i's not the last, and if it is?, i had a lot of fun with it. thnx to all who made it happen, cheers!

23rd September 2010, 04:28 PM
Thanks to those whom I've raced during the three days.
DP,you must be psychic.I did not race you but you knew I participated?

23rd September 2010, 04:40 PM
I think he noticed you in the chatbox, chatting & racing mate. Yeah that was a great event once again, despite the fact hd is getting older, and the tired online servers. sometimes it's totally unplayable, sometimes it's really enjoyable... anyway, was good to race with you all. Tarquin what a bunch of vids, great stuff!!
