    a nice read all around and quite in tune of how I percieve auricom throughout the games good job

    one small detail though that I picked up on in the team history.

    I seem to remember a text that states that Auricom competed in the F9000 scoring one last chamionship win (in the form of pascale rouser) and then just quitting right after saying that they had proven all they came to prove, that a passion for racing and skill could beat corruption and violence... or something like that...

    not entirly sure where I read that stuff but it stands a bit at odds with your description

    otherwise great job

    You think it's the best one I've done, Kraken?

    It's totally in my opinion, Challenger.

    You're right, Oryx Crake - Auricom did indeed withdraw from F9000 competition in 2168 in protest at the corruption in the league.

    The reason I wrote it like that was to "protect" the original teams from the fallout of it all, and AG Systems and Qirex were already out.

    That kind of looks like I left FEISAR to the wolves, but I reasoned that the way the European state operated the FEISAR team meant they were obligated to participate at the highest level of AG racing available, so their hands were tied.

    Having a look around, I'm quite surprised that this part of the Auricom backstory isn't on the official sites - at least it's not mentioned in full on the WipEout Pure site.

    It's mentioned in this timeline I posted, but not in great detail:

    I'll have a dig around at home and see if I can find the pre-WipEout Pure team history document and add it to the Fiction area of the site.
