    my personal experience of green races....

    ive never played green race official events but i have played green races with friends. its not that i dislike weapons either (cos most my games are weapons races) or i am trying to top the leaderboards, its i like to race and want to chill and cannot be bothered with the intesity of weapons on race...i just want to go around the track and chill and listen to music..i cannot be the only player who likes to do this... their must be other tired players who work hard who just want to chill and chat and play easy without the hard compettion..

    then you also have the players who play green just to practise with each other to improve for the regular races too.i have done this too...

    Yeah but please don't forget the most important part of the demo mate.
    I'm terribly slow and as a consequence I'm always struggling with mines and bombs. It's quickly boring ... and I often switch off the PS3 after an intensive session of mines and bombs eating.

    I'm slow, so even in GL I'll never make to a top 100 in the ranking (and I really don't care). And even in GL, I often use Ag-System (even if I tried Icaras recently, Green or not).

    I don't know if you ever raced with Ace3cube, but he's very fast and talented (look at his vids ). I can't speak for him, but I'm 90% sure he doesn't care at all of the ranking board.

    Really buddy, I don't understand this crusade against GL

    [QUOTE=ACE-FLO;177408]For the record Blackwiggle, I never named or shamed anyone = there is no one to name or shame imo. As for lynching - WOW, who lynched anyone, anywhere on this thread I fail to see that, so what makes you think I'm all for lynching eh? My issue is with the format of the GREEN league and my intention was to get the views of WZ members here so we can debate it = and I even added a poll so I could see at a glance the majority votes, so I can better understand the communities greater wishes regarding the issue. This is lynching? It's news to me

    The title of the thread "Green League -bane of Wipeout" and that you have named the Green League specifically in your fist post as the major perpetrator of, what in your opinion, seem dubious practices for the sole purpose of acquiring a high multiplayer rank.
    Lynching was the first word I could think of, maybe not the best choice and a bit too strong a word, but the way I read the posts, and I have read them all, some several times, that's who seemed to be cast as the bad guys.

    QUOTE Ace-Flo
    And yes, futlie as this debate may be - you still posted in it too I am passionate about my opinions, but am not unreasonable as you will see through this thread, if only you took the time to read through it all (which I hope you have already done, but from these quotes I'm rebuttling, I feel you havent) you wuld see that I dont target any indiviual, hmmm.. can I ask what gave you that idea?

    I've never said that you have targeted any individual, I don't know where your getting that from.
    I asked a question, they have these things at the end of them called question marks {?????}
    It seems you have misread them as a statement and then chose to rebut something that was never said in the first place.

    And a for the "Futility of it all" as I said, not "Futility of this debate" as you are incorrectly quoting me, I was referring to the multiplayer times themselves, not this thread.

    QUOTE Ace-Flo
    This is what I mean BlackWiggle, attempting to put words in my mouth when my vote is clear for everyone to see in my first post in this thread, is a bit wrong don't you think?

    I haven't put words in your mouth ACE, you are misreading the posts and then commenting on what you think has been said, above are just 3 examples of this which I hope have been cleared up.

    I haven't been in a green-league race (and as a rank 14 I'm probably still noobish enough that I probably wouldn't know it if I were). But to me if you want to have a race where the skills of the pilots reign supreme, and not have to worry about the weapons, turn the weapons off. One can fly around the track and not have to worry about the guy two meters in front dishing out a faceful of mines. Just don't hit too many walls as there's no way to recover your energy...

    That being said I think people should be able to race any way they want. If they only want to use green pickups and absorb everything else, that's their prerogative (I sometimes do that myself depending on the situation). If they want to go all out and blast away, that's fine, too.

    And even if he cares, what's the problem with that ?

    Reminds me all the crusades here (against BRs, bsb...), it seems that the pilots that reachs top score always uses unfair stuff !!

    If someone wants to reach a high rank in multiplayer, green races is the right way to do it !
    You want to reach a top score in sl/tt/multi ? Do the difficult BR and boosts, race in green rooms... and if you don't succeed, what will be the next complaining ???
    A solution anyway : play wipeout2D at playstation home ! No BR, bsb, green races or other unfair stuff !!!

    That was just to point out that the creator of the GL doesn't care about ranking, so the GL was not invented to make new records

    This is the fundamental reason why I love the green league.. It enables me to br the **** outa my Ica, without worrying about, Tarquin go kaboom..nothin to do with getting new WR's. Leave the green league alone.

    I just transfer a message of a young french pilot who start WipEout HD with Playstation Plus gift and who have just talked with us on chatbox. Of course this message is formatted by me, it was a chat.

    So I avoid to shoot pilot behind me, because he's faster and I risk to knock him, and it can waste seconds.
    I prefer to use turbo, I save lot of time with it, and with autopilot in some turns like Sol 2 270, Chenghou Project hairpin or lot of turn on Modesto Heights.
    I don't use bombs or mines because I'm often last.
    And I prefer absorb them to do more Barell Roll to go faster.

    And some guys say my records are unfair, because I should race 6 laps ? I think these persons are not interested to improve their times, because they don't use the good way to do it.


    So why they complain ? It's just the jealousy !
