    I see your point about people who don't have the Fury DLC obviously not being able to play in ZB races, but I don't think they should be denied a chance to play in the WC based solely on that reason, mainly because ZB is played by so few who do have Fury anyway.

    We could stipulate in the promotion that it is strongly recommended that anybody wishing to enter the WC have the Fury DLC, so that if the opponent they are drawn against requests ZB as their selection, then they are obliged to either get the Fury DLC and compete or forfeit those races.

    There's two decisions we could make with this that would make matters clear cut.
    1] At least one Zone Battle race is to be selected and raced by each player [no opting out of this] = Fury DLC required for entry.
    Problem arises when neither player likes ZB, which I can see happening quite a bit, plus it would deter possible entry into the tournament from people who read that they have to race at least 2 ZB races when it this race mode holds no interest for them, or they don't have or want to get the Fury DLC.

    So basically IMHO it's a bad call if you want to attract pilots into the WC by making ZB mandatory or Fury DLC ownership for that matter.

    2]Then you have the more relaxed option, if you can race Zone Battle at the request of your drawn opponent then you are obliged to accept the challenge.
    Same goes for Fury tracks generally, if you draw somebody who doesn't have the pack but your choice was from it, well tough luck, plenty of other HD tracks to choose from.

    Most people will have Fury anyway, so I think it would be very rare for this problem to occur, plus we are not alienating potential contestants from the start by making the tournament more relaxed in structure.

    @blackwiggle :
    lol i forgot that everybody didn't purchased the fury dlc !
    But it gave me an idea :
    when you meet an opponent with fury, you should be able to choose zb, eliminator or detonator mode, and if you (or your opponent) only own HD, you should be able to select zone, sl or tt mode (for the proof it's easy to send at your adversary through psn an ingame picture with hud activated for zone or sl mode, for tt or detonator i have no idea yet). about offline modes it can be possible for the opponents to start together and to decide of a time like 15 mn session or something. Well i don't know if it's possible to organize but it can add variety and attract people that like essentially offline modes (wowo's idea ), and also make some to race some mode they never do and to give more chances at those who're better at some modes than in multiplayer races.
    Of course half of the challenge will be classic online races (or tournament) but to make a grand final we must try to use the game at his full potential, no ?

    !!!!
    Goooood morning guys. First and foremost, wanted to say .

    90 reservations in one week. That's just completely nut. Big thanks to all, I've no words for that... Just awesome!

    Regarding the issues discussed above ; TBH all your inputs guys are really great, there's tons of good ideas that we could try, but if you're checking the reservation list, you can easily imagine great but complicated rules couldn't be applied.
    As Blackwiggle said, the format really needs to be set in stone quickly. Saaadly we don't have wipeout HD TV to relay our talks here, or detailed/elaborated/stratified rules. So I'm going to stay UBER simple and go with Saturn here :

    -Both players have to pick at least two different modes (modes are single race weapons, single race no weapons, zone battle).

    BUT

    Here are the "hidden rules"
    If the 2 opponents are reaching a common agreement : They can pick WHATEVER they want. Green races is going to hidden rules too.
    Even wanted to add an easter egg to that like "In case of draw before round 7, and if the opponents are both owning the Blur game, they can play their last round on this game" ... But I think it's too much ah ah.



    The Wipeout HD cup
    "For the record"
    ALL INFOS/RESERVATIONS HERE
