    I actually don't mind this influx, though it is a bit boring when the newbies start spawning in the middle of the track right in front of me or using weapon after weapon.

    There was this time where I got eliminated 3 times in a row by level 2 players in a normal race because one after the other rammed into me and sent quakes everywhere and every time.

    It's raining newbies, it's HUGE!!
    50 rooms open.
    There's never been a better chance to get your "Comeback king" badge if you haven't got it already.

    It's a bit dull thrashing people even after giving them 10+ sec start.
    I've just been in a 10 race tourny doing that, the bloke who kept coming second cottoned on that I was sitting on the grid giving them a start, so he waited till I took off, must of got the shits because he quit the rest of the tourny, which was a pity.

    Best thing you can do guys is throw a few races so the new pilots don't get disenchanted and throw in the towel early, that's if we want to keep these players active in the long run

    Yeah! Online is full to the seams. We should embrace this guys, not fear it. Many of the new players will quit after a couple of days, but a number of them will go on to become valued members of our community. Wipeout HD's never been so popular, it's a very exciting time

    I inherited a hosting position, Leungbok and greenymac joined the room and there were 5 newbies.
    Rapier-pilot assist off-Sebenco reverse- new world record broken - most times Contender Eliminated was heard in one race, no kidding it must of gone off at least 40 times
    I was crashing into the side walls I was laughing that much.
    Funniest race I've ever been in, I think some of these newbies are using their feet instead of their hands on the controllers.

    Only problem with all this activity is that I'm suffering terrible lag, still having some fun though.

    Just counted, 52 rooms. What's the highest you guys have seen? (This will only go up, in a months time it will be in the hundreds I reckon)

    It will be interesting to see what it gets up to.
    It's as big as I've ever seen it, and I've been on it since day one, I'd say very similar to the first weekend of HD's release, the only difference being far more US players this time around, I suppose that's because wipeout has always been the most popular in Europe.
    It's certainly bigger than when HD/FURY was given out in the PLUS+ subscription give away.
    Don't forget that if a room has 8 players in it it disappears off the board until the game is over, plus games that don't show up if it's a friends only room.

    It's brought a lot of people back that have had the game since release date 2008 but never got into it which I find interesting, I suppose they lost interest because they didn't improve, but now so many are totally new to HD/FURY they feel that they won't embarrass themselves.
