I couldn't find something similar on the forums so I went ahead and decided to do one myself.
Basically, I'm just listing a date and a time we can put together an organised online game of Wipeout HD Fury. Sound fun? :)
I was thinking that we have something happen, say a small tournament or something, every Sat. It doesn't matter what country you come from, anyone can join, but the AUS is there in the topic title because it's hosted in Australia. The times listed are also aussie ones (GMT +9:30). So any aussie players, come out and say hi :)

Status: Not Running. This weekend is a bye. Try the Tuesday Bling Brigade instead!
Upcoming event times:

Remember to use the Avalon Lounge chat room to talk during the games!

A time zone converter is available <out of date>. Just search for your town or city and find out your local time!

Hope to see you there! :)

I should be online, just send me a message when your ready to play!

Had moderate success tonight; We had a full 8 players at the start of the tournament, but Sony were useless as usual (http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/showthread.php?8642-New-Wipeout-HD-patch&p=216956#post216956) and after connection drops, race freezes, lobby freezes, scoreboard inconsistencies and other generally stupid bugs we were down two only two players, neither of whom were me. ._.
At any rate, it was good to catch up with Liod19 and Rennfisch whom I hadn't seen in a while. Had fun racing, thanks guys :)

We'll be doing this again this saturday, starting at 7:00 this time. We'll put on a rapier tournament if we get a good number of people, and flash/rapier friendly events for the rest of it. :)

29th June 2012, 05:08 AM
What time is it universally? I'd like to join but I have some stuff going on saturday evening.
Maybe you can create a new event here (http://www.timeanddate.com/) so everybody can check the time for thei individual time zone.

29th June 2012, 08:41 AM

8:30 AM - Room open
Friendly events until 8:20
8:50 AM - Flash tournament, all tracks, fwd, weapons on
9:30 PM - Phantom tournament, all tracks, varied direction, weapons on

DoM, I hope u can organise more of these get-togethers within the next few weeks. I would do it, but my ps3 is at home in Albury & I won't b over there for another week & half. :frown:

29th June 2012, 08:45 AM
My time zone is GM +9:30, I have put it in the first post. :)
The time zone converter event has been created here (edit: url redacted, out of date).
Edit: Also keg, those times in the OP are for the first one, and I forgot to edit the post to change them afterwards (Whoops). The upcoming one is starting half an hour later. I'm changing them now to be correct.

29th June 2012, 08:52 AM
I like your event time announcer. Much easier (for those who need it) than doing the math.

29th June 2012, 12:49 PM
Yep, it helps alot.

Well, but unfortunately I won't be free around that time. Am still at work in my place....

29th June 2012, 01:49 PM
So that's 9.30 UK time tomorrow. Good stuff, I'll be there. Do these events have a specific chatroom or are you using one of the usual WOZone ones (avalon lounge, ozone room...)?

29th June 2012, 02:31 PM
I hadn't really thought about using a chatroom; I'm not sure what Avalon Lounge and Ozone Room are, could you enlighten me? :o
Dunno how such a thing would work in the PS3 itself but I should be able to get an IRC channel up. Edit: IRC channel is now up at #WipeoutAusWeekly on naos.foonetic.com (irc.foonetic.com if that doesn't work)

29th June 2012, 04:17 PM
They're both text-chat rooms that are used pretty regularly by members here. It makes it a lot easier (and more rewarding IMO) to have a chat room open for this sort of thing. It might be worth starting one for these events, then you can invite your friends when they join the lobby.

29th June 2012, 05:30 PM
Isn't it possible just to use one of the existing chat rooms? Might be my own stupidity, but I don't even know what an IRC channel is, lol. I can invite you later, if it isn't already done by then, dread.
Btw I'll be there for the event, too. Guess you figured it already ;) And nice to see that you're also in for it, Col.

29th June 2012, 05:34 PM
Wait, is the event tomorrow, Liod?

29th June 2012, 05:39 PM
Yup, it's tomorrow, doc. In this event planner the day is wrong, but time is right.

29th June 2012, 06:04 PM
Cool, then I'll of course join in, too :)

30th June 2012, 04:36 AM
Why does the thing say Friday? I specifically put in the 30th of June o-o now fixed.

30th June 2012, 09:32 AM
I'm online now, can't see any of you guys though. Who will be hosting?

30th June 2012, 10:23 AM
I'm just booting it up now. :)
edit: wtf; in between now and when I switched the PS3 off last, they updated and I have to download the thing. typical sony -.-

30th June 2012, 10:31 AM
take ur time... I am ready on the PS3.

Colonel, whats your PS3-ID?

30th June 2012, 10:36 AM
Sorry, I've got to go. I'm being moaned at. I'll be back online later when I have the place to myself, about 3 hours from now.

30th June 2012, 10:39 AM
You guys can go ahead and start, I'll join in asap.

30th June 2012, 10:41 AM
I only have you, Mega & Liod in my friend list who are for the tournament today... I'll just wait until you're ready

30th June 2012, 12:10 PM
Thank you for the races everyone, sorry i couldn't stay any longer.
By the way who was it that went backwards around the track and tried to shoot me with a plasma on ubermall? very cheeky :lol

30th June 2012, 01:18 PM
Was me :) Had some bugs and microfreezed on my PS3 at the beginning so I had no chance to keep up. I tried to play some eliminator instead haha.
Problems kinda solved after PS3 restart but then my playlist was gone xD Strange sometimes...

Anyway, the weapons off races at the end with dread & Liod were lots of fun! And good practice for phantom ;)

30th June 2012, 01:34 PM
Definately! Had a lot of fun tonight, hope to see both of you again. :D

6th July 2012, 06:09 AM
The OP has been updated with the times for next saturday. :)

6th July 2012, 01:18 PM
So that's 10am tomorrow UK time? I might make it but I'm going out tonight, so if it's a heavy one I'll still be asleep.

9th July 2012, 01:14 PM
Updated the OP with the next times. It'll be Bling Brigade events first and foremost!

12th July 2012, 09:27 PM
hi, please someone inform me the date and time tournament Venezuela? thanks

13th July 2012, 01:21 PM
Hello :)
The times are listed in the first post, but if you click here (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Wipeout+HD+weekly+tournaments&iso=20120714T1930&p1=5) you can see when it will happen in your time zone.
Hope to see you there :)

14th July 2012, 10:09 AM
Hopefully, I'm in tonight. My PSN ID is touge_rider2

EDIT: How do I get to the Ozone Room?

14th July 2012, 11:58 AM
Sorry guys, I've been having internet troubles for the last hour and it's virtually impossible to host a coherent game, let alone a tourney. It took 15 minutes to even write this message. And I was looking forward to this, too! :(
Hopefully someone else will be able to take over, like keg_11 or doco4r.
Also, the ozone room is a chat room on the PSN network. I'm not sure how to get into it manually (i was invited by someone else).

15th July 2012, 02:50 AM
I'm interested in this. I happen to be keg_11's brother and I currently have our PS3, so I can run these events if possible and/or needed. My PSN account name is my WZ name.

31st July 2012, 09:17 AM
Try using the PSN chatbox name "Avalon Lounge" to communicate with each other.
Since "Players Met" via the PSN " People Met" doesn't work

31st July 2012, 01:22 PM
Ok, I updated the OP to reflect the times for this week.

In the future I probably won't add a post just to say I've updated, so remember to check back and watch for the little Status bar on the post! :)

31st July 2012, 01:43 PM
I need to get in on these! :) I have to set up the avalon lounge chat thing

31st July 2012, 02:34 PM
If you race against somebody now that you recognize from this forum, they now should register under your "Players Met" list, as this function is now working again .
:rock :rock :rock
A total PITA trying to sort a BB without this, as you always seem to get some somebody filling a grid spot that just doesn't get the fact that they need to be, or have forgotten to be, wearing chrome.

31st July 2012, 03:17 PM
As for the BB thing you can also create a lobby which is not public but invitations only. This way you can invite your friends [wether from the forum or not] & won't have some random guy without chrome skin.

4th August 2012, 01:46 PM
To the person who sat on the start grid and shot at players as they flew past: Hope your PS3 dies! :nod

5th August 2012, 10:09 AM
LOL okay xD
Some mysterious racing techniques going on here :sonar
