    You know, Green League is "just" an "official" League created to make it possible for people who want to race "no weapon but BR" races.
    I mean "official", because I'm been playing several times with Tug and Leungbok for example when we played without firing weapons, or rarely. It was existing before, this is just a mean to get pilots all together.

    PS : be happy "Pirhapac" is not playing often online... you'd see some new WR ^^

    lol Temet, you too funny sometimes. Why does Pirhapacs name keep getting bought up? he's got nothing to do with this debate - peeps were mentioning in the "other" thread too LOL

    Now, some of you might find this hard to beleive - but I don't care for records personally, I don't compete on that level - I'm in it for the fun, but the fun is waning away when the game become elitist and broken....

    @mic-dk = Yep, all about the fun here too I still think its all about the fun, a sI play the game regardless BUT TAKE my cousin who bought the PS3 and WipEOut HD Fury on Bluray around 6 weeks ago now. He doesnt play it at all, becuase he thinks the multiplayer online times are messed up, and is aware of GREEN league also.... that's one real life example right there !!!

    Oh, and TEMET - there's nothing "official" about GREEN league - LOL, the leagues that are officiail are all included in the standard HD Fury package - Weps OFF / Weps ON /Eliminator /Zone Battle etc... don't paint it otherwise please

    I remember racing alot with Leungbok back in 2008, back in the Pulse good days, we just raced in phantom and played the game how it was, with non of this poncy bullshit of today at all. Everything has changed since then. Make a game called "TIMEOUT" just for all the Green League players, and have "WIPEOUT" like it is. Keeps everything in order. as well as the records too.

Of course you must know what you're doing (via Time Trial) to get a top MP time regardless of pickups...

    Multiplayer online times are nice but not so serious IMO. Not only do they largely depend on pickups/luck/opposition, but also online playtime. I've notice alot of my MP Flash times being eclipsed lately but then I realize they are by players who play Flash online almost exclusively and are 20-25 ranks higher than me meaning they've had hundreds of more races on each track at that speed.

    So my point is... it doesn't really matter. Time Trials remain the most accurate measurement of skill (and not just Phantom yeah).
    Damn ! I totally agree with that !
    You see ? when you want !

    I see we're starting today where yesterday left off.......
    Im going to say my piece then quickly leave it think.

    • First and foremost, i think "the bane of wipeout" is a massive, massive overstatement.
    • 2nd, asking the people who enjoy this league to put it on 6 laps isnt really fair, as your not going to say 'all players that race 1-on-1 with a noob must put it on 6 laps also' are you?
    • Clearly different people enjoy different kinds of competition, its just a touchy subject because all our competitions are user made, so all times go into the multiplayer races board regardless of its set-up.
    • I doubt anyone would have a problem whatsoever with any of this if players could chose what weapons were on offer in the lobby, and if SL made a leaderboard that could be filtered to view only times using a set weapon list.
    • Last but certainly not least, the leaderboards have barely worked for months anway. A couple of top 3 times ive made are yet to be displayed, and apparently Ive never raced on Anulpha Pass reverse since ive had the internet back still an auricom time i set from way back when.

    hows that any different to me racing a nobody while i wait for my lobby to fill? I dont do it often (mainly becuase 9/10 times they quit anyway), but i dont see how me doing that doesnt offend you an equal amount

    offend me? I do that too - but that is fair play man... everyone plays on the same level there, to the same format, the way it was intended...

    Not everyone plays the GREEN league though do they? it's a just a bunch of Zoners who are doing this

    Let me present the flip side to your argument Haydn.

    A noob enters a weps on race - gets blown up 6 times and DNFs

    Same noob enters the GREEN race, and manages to finish for once - advantage? you tell me mate

    EDIT: Noob is probably unaware that there is an elitiist club (GREEN league) churning out bad ass times anyway - and leaves the format thinking "this game is broke" sad days...

    still dont see how a race where you must absorb everything except greens, vs 7 other players, is worse than me vs 1 sh*t player, but i too am absorbing anything other than greens

    You're splitting hairs now Haydn The same noob who got "worked" in a 1 on 1 race with you, can atleast race with you and maybe even slow you down with nooob bombs and mines when you come round to lap him/her - I'd like to see that happen in a GREEN race there you go, split that hair
