    Question WipEURout 2018

    Update #1:
    • date is September 10-16th (Mon, 2018-09-10 to Sun, 2018-09-16 = week 37)
    • location is most likely Vienna (Wien), and far less likely Bad Soden (near Frankfurt)
    End of update.


    I won't give up that easily:
    who is interesting in a meeting again this year?
    As usual: the competition is optional, the fun is mandatory. Conventions are a great thing to meet people in real you otherwise only know thru texting or eliminating. Over the years scoring the best times and choosing a winner has become less important, while enjoying talking and eating now is the biggest priority.

    For those not being familiar with the history books here's a quick overview:
    • 2007: Amsterdam NL - hostel, PSP only.
    • 2008: Amsterdam NL - hostel, PSP only.
    • 2009: Frankfurt DE - hostel for PSP, AmigoJack's apartment for HD.
    • 2010: Paris FR - hostel for PSP, one member's apartment for HD.
    • 2011: Heerhugowaard (near Amsterdam NL) - Mad-Ice's house for PSP and HD.
    • 2012: Frankfurt DE - hostel for PSP, AmigoJack's apartment for HD.
    • 2013: London GB - hostel for PSP, small bar for a PSP meet-up as well.
    • (2014 and 2015 did not happen)
    • 2016: Bad Soden (near Frankfurt DE), AmigoJack's apartment for PSP and HD.
    • 2017: Amsterdam/Heerhugowaard NL - hostel for PSP, Mad-Ice's house for HD and Omega.
    As always I'm open for being a host again: my apartment is big enough to let 3 people sleep on the "guest" room ground, 2 in the living room (although it happens that people stay up all night), 2 more on the kitchen's ground (that was new to me but someone really liked it), and given high temperatures my balcony is large enough to support room for another 6 sleeping people.

    Bad Soden is next to Frankfurt, which you can reach by almost everything (car, train, plane, blimp, horses, broomsticks, bicycle...). Whoever arrives at the airport or at the train station and expects to feel lost can be picked up by me personally (yes: 9 years later I still do this despite my age). Hotels are nearby, but expect normal/moderate rates. The hostel in Frankfurt would be the cheapest option but needs you to ride the metro for about 1/2 hour.

    Your ideas? Your thoughts? When do you have time for this?

    I'd definitely still be interested in attending another one, although it's slightly more complicated now with a full time job, I'd have to either take a flight (in which case I can't really bring anything with me), or just take a holida, visit the family and end it off with wipeout con

    What time stamp were you looking at?

    Ah, there you are!

    I'm available for almost any time - it could start right away this weekend, or it could happen in mid November, or anything inbetween. The only exception is last half of May. If we two remain the only ones I could also look into visiting you.

    Although I definitely wouldn't mind you coming over, that's currently not possible as I am living in with others and my room is too small to house anyone else (On the lookout for my own place, but finding the proper thing needs time, once that happens i'll prolly host one myself some time ;-))
    I'm not sure how many of the others still regularly read WZ, but I'll mention it in that KIK chat we set up last time at your place

    Would be nice to meet up again though, fun times, just gotta wait to hear form the others
    (timing for me would probably be best around july/august i think, but I'm somewhat flexible, just need to plan far enough ahead)

    Hope you've been well Michael! ;-)

    I'd be WISHING I could be there. Alas, I'll be chilling out here in Seattle, biding my time until Arc Prime is built.

    Count me in!
    But if we're doing this, I am planning to get 8 PS4s with PSVR together so we can have the first full VR championship
    Good thing is, we won't need screens! (only for spectators)

    Sounds good, just write down at least 3 weekends you have in mind. Maybe a local holiday on your side kicks in during that time.

    Is this a joke? Sounds überawesome! Looking back at 2016 I guess 6 should be enough already - if I remember correctly no more than 5 were playing simultaneously. Tell me your favorite 3 weekends as well. Got to honor your long car ride somehow.

    The sooner we choose one or two dates, the better.

    @all: this time I can provide ~10 blankets for the ground, so anyone planning to only bring his sleeping bag should have a more comfortable ground this time. I'm fine with July/August - if we do it (as usual) on a weekend I can also call off work on Friday/Thursday/more even shortly before and surely get it approved, so no problem for me here.

    Makes us 4 already, right? AJ, eL, Ci and Dre.

    I won't be able to provide any exact dates until somewhere early June Micheal, so please schedule for other people's preference if you need to know it sooner than then and I'll see if I can make it
