    Ok, i'm in. wait for me, please im gonna borrow a ps4 from my friend. Lol
    @JF: On PS3 HD, it was on one track even closer
    Vineta k Rev venom #1: 22.24s

    Vineta k rev flash #2 : 22.13s who was even booney, so no sloth there
    Vineta k rev flash #3: 22.50s

    It happened coincidently, while pushing the maximum out of the track. I noticed it later, but actually liked the idea to be faster than most flash pilots.

    But as said, i'm in for some venom/flash tournaments - in August, though. Promised.

    I'd be interested in watching the "Slow Rollers Tourney". Someone please upload those we can see them.

    Sorry, been really busy. Suddenly decided to complicate my life by trying to buy a house.

    I've been thinking over how we could do this so we might be able to have as wide an ability range taking part as possible, but it's incredibly difficult as there is such an enormous gulf between the best players and beginners. There's only one way I can forsee to try and reduce the gulf a bit - turn off barrel rolls. If they stay on we may as well just give out the awards now.

    Is this something people would agree to? If we do do a tournament we MUST make sure it is as accessible as possible to everyone, not just us.

    It would be good if this type of tournament is the opportunity to bring new players and allow them to shine.

    And as hellfire says, there is too much difference between the top class players that we find here and the average quidam who would like to try out wipeout. For me the best solution would be that the top player does not do this tournament but that they are working to promote it.

    As Hellfire and tug said, it should be the most accessible possible : forbidding top players to compete, no barrel rolls... both solutions are good IMO.

    Why not apply both ? A newcomer tournament with no BRs could appeal a lot of casual players and, if we're short on players, let the top players join since the gap would be slightly reduced.

    I don't think we should exclude the top players, that's a little silly. If the barrel rolls are off it just becomes about the racing lines and use of weapons, which I think should be a pretty even playing field.

    Side note, happy birthday Mikahail

    If a tournament with barrel rolls off, it wont help much imo because of skill cuts in 2048 (newer players may not know about it) Pickup RNG in 2048 (turbo spam spam and you can get 2-4 each lap no problem) and theres many spots you can use turbo in 2048 and weapons are very weak in 2048 and extremely unbalanced ships (feisar prototype on C-A on any track except sol, queens mall and altima) and AG systems on every A+ track. Yeah, 2048 has huge balancing issues

    unless the tournament is HD only

    Hellfire, is it gonna be weapons on/off/pure racing? or just weapons on?

    I'm open to ideas, but I think it'll be weapons on as I can see the majority of non-elite players favouring this. Plus it does give less experienced players a chance to catch up. If we do 2048 I may suggest restrictions on craft type dependent on the game mode, and I would be willing to bet that very few of the less experienced players would be up for racing on A+.
