    As someone who lives in north america, i personally find that there are a HUGE amount of servers going at certain times of day (i'm talking tens of servers, relatively well populated). Particularly around midday to afternoon on Fridays and weekends there are a good amount of servers. however any other time it seems pretty much deserted, i find there are alot of EU servers until about 4 pm here, then things start to slow down.

    I think there are still a good couple of years left in HD Fury's servers, personally. Unless of course something drastic draws the audience away.

    Yeah about dat Farmotogillz or whatev's, he must be on there 24-7, I see him in a Phantom Elim lobby ALL the time. I used to see a Cool_and_Cute there too, but now just the Motogillz.

    Cipher, it must be nice to mention "Wipeout" and not have people ask you: "You mean there is a game about that show? I LOVE that show!" It is no where near as popular here as is the EU.

    I join anything these days. Venom, Phantom, Zone Battle, and sometimes Eliminator. Just desperate to keep this thing going before dusting off the PS2 and going through Fusion again. Yeah, THAT desperate. I just recently got the ole N64 out. Might be a good time to play that horrid game too while I wait for someone to show up online.

    I might even start a proxy lobby and play Wii U on the gamepad until someone shows up! ^_^

    AGgamer, consider yourself friended! Would be nice to have someone in a near timezone. @ Zzonk, MK8 is pretty good though, you must admit. That aside, the leaderboards have been screwed up now for YEARS. Wipeoutrankings.com is perhaps the only reliable leaderboard anymore.

    Though to be completely fair, I do kind of like the show.

    Lolz! Did you ever watch MxC? Waaaaaay better!

    So just to update... 2 Phantom Eliminator matches right now. mannjon in an EMPTY RACE LOBBY. If any server stays open it will be the F'in Eliminator lobby and nothing else. I stand by my original remark... if you want the servers to stay up RACE.

    not sure about phantom with a dodgy dpad but I'll give it a shot

    few days ago, cipher and I were racing with dodgy pads in a room, and were cannon fodder for noobs... highly embarrassing but fun all the same hehe


    7 in a room and i'm hosting, jump in

    This does bring up a point I'd like to make. More and more developers these days are including some type of online requirement for trophies and such. It is just plain wrong to do that to gamers. I hate this trend because unless you buy the game new and start with the online campaign, you'll likely miss a few trophies that are otherwise impossible to get. Imagine trying to get Bling Brigade right now for example. It is rare enough to have 8 players stay for one whole race, let alone 8 players that have beat the campaign.

    Then on top of that, there is no indefinite time that the servers stay online. There are so many games I have where I have earned just about every trophy except the one that forces you to grind it out in online play and most of those games don't have any open servers.

    Sometimes I'm around in 2048 and we don't get the lobby filled with at least 4 players.
    To be fair, shutting down the servers of not played games saves money, but my heart bleeds when I remember that I never played Pure or Pulse online.
