    Why did you tease him about the harimau? (Favorite ship Colin)

    Because, like Flash, the name is just... well... not Wipeout IMHO.

    well, I think 'harimau' is not that unfitting as a name. I was more disturbed by the sound of 'triakis'. sounds too pseudo-sophisticated for wipEout IMHO :wink:

    Harimau certainly has the asian sound befitting a malaysian team, and Triakis sounds like something pompous created by a consultant team using a focus group of average joes fed Krispy Kremes and cheap coffee, while some high ranking military corporate types look upon them through a one way mirror and congratulate each other for being so brilliant on their naming strategy.

    "Triakis" would be the product ultimately excreted by such a process.

    I don't know, triakis to me sounds like a warring race from babylon 5.

    the Triakis (like 1 Triaki, some Triakis)

    'Captain! Fuzzy Lumpkins, the commander of the Triakis Battleship, is calling through viacom.'
    'Bring him up'

    I'm changing it to Team Quantax, there's a few peeps on here that are much better at coming up with names and backstories than I am.

    Yeah. Good Idea. I thought it would be a good idea to keep al-vaskei with just the one.

    Random: your Al-Vaskei backstory is very cool. I always felt that the arab oil princes would be the first to leap into the AG racing game, financing their multi-billion dollar-pound team with the change they fished out of the cracks in their sofa

    thanks. I wasn't sayin' that al-vaskei should go, just that it didn't deserve two ships, that's all, just to make it clear.
