    Default Friendly Wipeouters

    Hi,

    sometimes while playing with other (for me unknown) people I try to message them to congratulate for a good race or to pay tribute to these players. Now the strange thing: Nobody has ever ignored me or was unfriendly. Most conversations ending with a smile and sometimes with a new training partner on the friend list. I've never seen such a pleasant/nice community like this. In other games one is often ignored or a hateful message is returned (rare but happens too).

    Well here's my question: Am I the only one who had made such an experience? Or is it reality?

    Edit: Hmm made a mistake in the title. Should be "Friendly Wipeouters"

    I've messaged people after races with those same results, too! I think it's a reality for us Wipeouters. We're just a group of friendly people.

    It's true, the number of people we've experienced over the years who have been utter tits can be counted on one hand. Not sure what it is about this game but it certainly seems to bring together the decent part of the gaming community

    WipEout is easily the greatest game for community. Never ONCE had problems.


    I love you all.

    this community is great, cause EVERYONE is welcome! if you have a question, im sure it'll be answered here, if possible. most of the community members over here are 30+ of age, and have a 'balance' in RL (own family etc.). so you won't get stupid (childish) answers or comments most likely

    Same goes to me, virtually through PSN and also in reality when we decided to acheive steps forward and meet for real through European Wipeout Conventions or North American ones. Welcome to a family-kind community

    I absolutely love this community. This is easily the best one I've signed up for so far. There's something magical about WipEout that surprisingly brings everyone here together, like what Hellfire said. Long live WipEoutZone!

    Yeah great community!! I think it is partly because the game is very individual in the way that you don't have teams so it becomes more important to be friendly and message other pilots during races. All my firends on PS3 are Wipeouters!! Even if they have "retired"...

    With the exception of the xX333-3Xx and xX333-1Xx and of course the "sheep girls", I've never had a problem. I could get a bit competitive and go on the war path but that's only if I'm really p-ed off.

    Thanks for your answers.

    I fit into the group JFthebestJan mentioned. With 30+ now I've played some Wipeout games before (started to play Wipeout 2097 on a brand new Playstation console back in 1996 I believe). I think most of you have played a Wipeout series game before HD/2048. This creates a question in my mind automatically:

    Is the Wipeout community growing? Do young people (who had never played this game series before) stay with Wipeout a longer time and not to get the game trophies only?

    Everytime I see the online lobby of Wipeout HD it's getting more empty. Although many PS3 users got the game after the PSN outage. But maybe it depends on the game genre and most people have other preferences.
