    Thanks for leaving a message on my phone, Mad - otherwise I would have surely missed this announcement!

    This collides a bit with another planned trip, so I have to check and report back if it really makes sense. Just looked up flights, which are ~224 EUR at reasonable times (which means: arriving on Thursday afternoon and departing on Sunday evening) and I think the price is okay. I'm curious how others plan their arrival/departure times. 3 years ago in Paris most people left on Sunday morning, which gave me a few hours to explore the city - and that's what I aim at again...

    Hell, could you please visit it beforehand to get an own impression? I mean, both photos from the hostel itself and from guests look quite okay (the bunk beds remind me to Paris), but they don't reflect any atmosphere or staff behaviour. Thank you.


    Also: what's the game plan? If there are only PSPs I'd be pretty bored (yes, I'm a bit sick of those games), if there are Vitas I can't contend (don't got one and even if there's a spare one, I have no experience). In other words: no PS3s will reduce my interest in playing at all (the 5th convention was no problem, as we played PSX versions, too).

    Aside from those "problems" I'm surely anticipating to see you all again, of course! And to finally visit London. If someone else is thinking the same (playing doesn't matter, let's see the outside) it would help me, of course!

    very nearly attended previously, but ultimately never made it for a few years now, not through a lack of desire I might add.

    this could (and should) be the year I finally get to say hello

    hope to see you there.

    So guys what we are doing with the accommodation? I've done a quick check for other hostels but didn't found anything special. If you guys would find something or just decide to book the hostel proposed by Hellfire I'm in. One thing that I would like to mention is that I was staying in hostel in London around year ago for the lowest price and it wasn't nice experience - so this time I can pay more for better accommodation Maybe we should do a list of people who needs booking and one of us will make the booking for all? I will start

    Kappeskopp! - 12th - 14th (2 nights)
    DreamerX - 11th-14th (3 nights)

    Thumbs up

    Oh yes, please!

    I'm arriving on Thursday, 11th at 12:10 on LCY and
    I'm leaving on Sunday, 14th at 20:00 on LHR.

    Protip: seems like I'll have no problem using my VISA card to get money over there. Going to buy 2 power adapters.

    Looking forward to you all again, especially dreamer, mad Asa and Mad.

    Great initiative dreamerx and superb to hear you are coming Amigo, hyper!

    Arriving 11th and leaving 14th.

    We will have to tell the people at the hostel we are One group and that we want to share rooms. Same booking. Tell them we are the wipeoutzone group. Tomorrow Asa, temet and I will contact the hostel.

    @AmigoJack - thanks and same here
    @Mad-Ice - awesome! thanks!

    To summarize a little bit there are still some maybes, but most of us so far are sure about
    going to EWC and some of us already organized their travel to London - that's great.

    Hellfire - 11-14
    Mad-Ice - 11-14
    Temet - 11-14
    DreamerX - 11-14
    Knux_Chaotix - 11?-14?
    Asayyeah - 11-14
    Kappeskopp - 12-14
    Amigo Jack - 11-14
    Aeralys - 12?-14? Do you know already if you can make it?
    Mr Phlanj - 12?
    AquaAura - ?
    DJ Techno - ?
    zeeZ - ?
    lovedr - ?
    yeldar2097 - coming to say hello probably

    Is that correct?

    Next thing is, who is taking what to London (I mean hardware and games )? What about PS3's and screens?
    Because in cheap airlines it's probably better to make booking with registered luggage instead of taking big bag with you into the plane - some airlines like Ryanair not always like big bags on the board.

    I can take at least one big console (PS3 for sure), PSP, PS Vita. Games: Almost all Wipeout editions. But probably won't be able to take any TV/LCD monitor with me.
