    I'm interested, but i think the 2048 version isn't needed. as i think it's is not possible to play on, as I believe lots of people will play it for the trophies, making it hard to get races.

    Why the hell did they decide to close down the servers on a Thursday?

    If there is going to be some sort of 'Last Gasp' GG, I think it should be held on the weekend prior to that....just IMHO....more likely to get a fuller house.

    Business day. I never seen a game have it's servers closed on a weekend. We are going to start from 6pm GMT then play till around 1am or something, Then we continue next day at a earlier time like 2PM. We also want to play till the moment they plug off the servers. But we don't know when during the day that's gonna happen. Resistance 2 closed at 7PM on closure day. GT5 closed around 2am. So it seems random overall

    The players that were on hd & 2048 was at 0 like 99% of the time after omega was released. Sometimes there was a lobby though. 2048 however, only trophy hunters play that online.

    Hi guys! I'm helping WipeFuSionZ to organize this event. We're still discussing whether we should hold the event on the day prior to shutdown of the servers, to make sure we don't get cut off mid tournament. We will still keep on playing next day until they shut it down, but the main event with tournaments will most likely take place the day before.

    If you haven't registered yet through WipeFuSionZ, you can do so by messaging me. Please also mention your PSN ID in your message, that would make things much easier for me

    PS: The event will be HD Fury only, no 2048. Sorry if we made you looking forward to that, but we came to the conclusion that it would make more sense to focus on HD Fury.

    Hope to hear from you guys! Looking forward to let this era go out with a bang!

    Why?, and more so, How?, and just as equally by Whom ? Did the decision to make FURY the Main / Sole version of the game to be the final version to be played by all?

    IMHO I think it will end up being a free for all, and that all the old pilots [If they have any interest] will just turn up on the day, and race as everybody feels it should be done......no organization needed.......My only wonder is.

    Who is going to be the last pilot to die in a normal weapon based online in HD/FURY race, from a PLASMA BOLT ?.......the last TRUE legendary AG death !..[Eliminator does not count].

    We just thought it would be nice to organize a small competitive event during the final days of HD Fury online, for whoever would like to join. Just a fun little tournament, that's all
