    I thought this was a poll with added thread to discuss opinions and views And somewhere a way to advertise another league in off-topic mode. But mostly people expressing their opinions and some using other's posts to show they agree or disagree.

    Ace, you haven't won or left early to prevent getting cornered or just to post your flag on the summit. I think people will save that option for the tracks to be decided at ;D
    Shall we roll? I'll host

    Time of single or online races are not significant !

    In real life, look at car competition : do you look race time (eg Formula One, 78 laps on Monaco) ?

    No, because weather, temperature, opponents' value and number, incidents, etc, all this varies the conditions of races, so the time you can realize.



    Green league is fair because everyone knows the rules.

    Leaderboards of online races is useless, like the online rank (sinus1 the best oh yeah )

    And to blame guys like Ace3cube who try to preserve interest for WipEout is very unfair.

    In the interest of finding a solution between those who like and don't like, the extended races (6 laps or more) looks very clever.

    As for me, well I do not care much about weapons and getting hit by them. They are part of the game (I said that.) However what I absolutely hate is the lag and I wish it would one day disappear because sometimes you drive and you can't race properly because you keep getting rammed off your line by other players who are not even supposed to be touching you (They are not touching you on their screen.) So yeah, I don't like that a lot.
    Green league offers theoretically no solution to that but with people using only green things I noticed that racers eventually spread out and makes for a pleasurable driving experience. But I can get that same experience offline and so I do not care much about green league if it were to stop because of this discussion. For me it's a way to drive with other people I enjoy playing with but that's it. Multiplayer race times seem not to be corrupted so I can understand why some voice their concern for that but it has been brought up that similar situations to green league can and will happen often, so green league looks to me like everyone has a shot instead of the one or few who pull ahead in a race populated with average players.

    EDIT: But then there are those who green to get records, and so extending to 6 laps is not a solution for them. I have no idea.

    Formula One is very different again to Wipeout i would say Jonathan. Two very very different examples. Times do play there way in a way

    Oh ****ing hell for ****sake this is getting dumb, i feel asleep tbh with the laptop in front of me, simple, if there was a way to segregate the Green League acquired times, then im happy for the selected French and the others to do there own thing. The considerate an unselfish thing would be to make it 6laps as Cat mentioned in the Icaras thread before Chris deleted everything. I believe that would be the best solution at the time in order to keep the peace.

    My exemple concerns just "opponents' value and number, incidents" you can meet in online race, it's why time of online race (or single) are not significant.

    I don't understand. Since 25 september 2008 :

    1. I've seen friends who play one vs one to beat their record.
    2. I've seen some guys who start races against just one newbie ( it's like a Time Trial, with luck you can have 6 or 7 turbos).
    3. But I've seen (rare) pilots able to get a top 10 in Avalon races too, without any green item. I don't hear them complaining.

    And 21 months after, green races would be unfair ? And the aforementioned points 1 & 2 ?

    EDIT : nice tag "french silent treatment" :-

    The game has changed alot since 25 september 2008. Some people have come and gone, some people still fire up the game to do a bit of TT or Eliminator or some online. This is what happens when no new content comes out on the game after an extended period of time, people get bored and start creating new leagues up, and playing the game in alternate ways.

    Please call me SaturnReturn. Until you posted my full name a lot of people didn't know it. I don't have an issue with it if they do, but I think it's my choice whether people know my full name or not.
    Thanks

    On topic - I think it's up to individuals how they play the game. I don't really like green races that much because I feel it becomes all about the turbo. But I find the best solution to that, for me at least, is to just not play green races. It's worked out pretty well so far. So I voted 'not bothered'.
