    @keg11 I'd love to see some of your brilliant writing detailing the the period between the F9000 and FX300.

    Okay, thanks for the suggestion.

    Actually, I've been pondering about that recently (particularly in regards to what sport may temporarily replace AG racing during this period, may even cross over with another game outside Wipeout).

    I'll see what I come up with.

    Maybe. Though reading the manual, it assumes it to be an underground series from the 25th century (might need some artistic licence, here)

    Y'know, this makes me want to follow your footsteps, along with Challenger 001, when it comes to writing fanfic stuff related to Wipeout.

    @Keg_11

    I just noticed on the 2216 results that Tyrrell Byron from Auricom had transferred to Assegai. How did that Happen?

    I would write something out of this, but unfortunately I already had something planned out for his continuous storyline recently.

    I'm just saying because I do follow and reference this fanfic, and you're always welcome to continue using my pilots anytime. I did liked the idea of what happened to Liana and made a paragraph about it on her storyline, but Tyrrell transferring to Assegai though, wasn't what I had in mind.


    BTW, I've been active on here again.

    Hi Synergy,

    If I recall (from a writer's point of view), I had transfered Byron from Auricom because I had felt that he had spent enough time at the team and thought he needed to change.

    When it comes to the pilot's tenures at a team and their careers, I try to emulate what a F1 driver would do considering they have a (on average) 10 year career. It's good if a particular pilot is so loyal to a team that they'll only race for that team for their career, but doesn't seem realistic to me.

    Plus it gives me a chance to put new characters into the teams and see how their career pans out.

    PS: Funny incident I had with Liana which inspired me to write her story as I did: I was flying her Triakis on Metropia (as mentioned in my news report), as I rounded the uphill left after Gemini Pin, I made an error by activiating a boost which saw me fly off the track into an overhead gantry. I finished the race, as you do, but I did debate a bit onto whether to include that in as is or change it somewhat. I left it as is, in part because it was part of the 2214 FX400/350 online events organised here on WZ.

    Good to know, and it would make sense for a pilot to find better success from other teams within their race careers. To be honest I wanted to write this somehow for his pilot bio on my thread, but unfortunately I had already planned out a storyline/scenario before seeing the results of 2216. I didn't want to scrap my idea after seeing it until I realized, this is your fiction, you write what you want, I'll just stick to my own.

    Perhaps in my fiction he did wanted to transfer to Assegai for better success, but because Qirex pretty much declares a war on the Belmondo foundation and their supporting teams around the same period, he got stuck with Auricom to not only to defend the race commission but also protect his teammate, Rachel Vega, not to abandon her while she goes out to fight Qirex in the racing league. Obviously mine is more story/character-driven while yours is more close to the reality of F1 drivers, though I do take references from here at times.

    BTW I did see that video of what happened in that race. Surprised that didn't completely paralyzed her or is able to finish with that neck injury. Of course I had to added in her pilot story.

    I had to write something to explain why I finished the race. I should've stopped and waited until the race ended, but the heat of the race got to me Also, I did write that Morelli was braced with a sort-of safety exoskeleton that activated in the crash to circumnavigate the neck injury until the end of the race.
