    Default Van-Uber lore?

    This question mainly goes out to NotEnoughRed and Mooney.

    We got that nice bit of lore for why Tigron is back on the track. Is there lore for Van-Uber's return, too?

    I love love love the lore in this series! Fingers crossed!

    My head canon was that the game shows the 2207 FX350 league (instead of the 2206 season, as in HD) and Van-Über was just late.
    But now I'm looking forward to this :v

    Am I the only one who’s tired of not understanding management decisions like that? After all it was realized by people and they probably had some thoughts about it as well. It just always seems like wasted potential to me: Creative people working on related creative stuff but the one hand doesn’t know what the other is doing

    Well... I'm not looking to undermine the Word of God. But as I remember it:

    After 2197 (Pure) the FX300 racing league on Makana got so popular that they had to build more tracks elsewhere in the world to stop overcrowding. As they expanded, it was effectively rebranded as the FX350 league to accommodate for the change in location, and by 2206 (HD/Fury) it was announced to be the final transition into a new racing series the following year (which would turn out to be Pulse's FX400).

    ---------
    So, since HD Fury is between Pure and Pulse, the added teams in Omega would presumably be a retcon that doesn't have to effect Pulse.

    We know that Tigron was involved as a sort of training team for Qirex in FX300 for pilots to learn how to fly heavier ships, and that the team and its remnants were dismantled when it fulfilled that purpose. But with the new content, it's revealed that an unknown entity brought Tigron back for FX350.

    We also know that Van-Über made an appearance in FX300 but, for one reason or another, didn't transition into FX400. So, with the new content placing them in the FX350, what if Van-Über had always planned to stay, but something happens at the start of FX400 that prevents them from competing? The question being... what made them retire?

    Possibly the rise of the combat-oriented events in the FX350 (Fury) caused them to not want to deal with that again, and just backed out of the scene after the FX350?

    Or we could go with Charlie's version of events and say they couldn't sustain themselves and ended up becoming bankrupt, but just shift that point to between the FX350 and the FX400 instead of FX300->FX350.

    Either way, Rob said he's working on it, so it'll be interesting to see what he comes up with!
