Welcome to the WipEout World Championships!
My name's Owen, as you can tell from my e-mail address, but my PSN username is Darkplayster2. I've played WipEout since its introduction to the PS3 era in 2007 with HD-Fury. Since Sony Liverpool, the development studio responsible for the WipEout series, was closed in mid-late 2012, I took it upon myself to find a way to regenerate the series. Recently I've contacted the studio founded by those involved in Sony Liverpool, called Firesprite, to ask about a series reboot.
But until then, I've started this blog to make WipEout online as fun and interactive as possible for budding WipEout pilots. If you're interested in making an application, PLEASE READ THE TERMS & CONDITIONS!!! You'll always be able to find them, whether it be now or at a later date, on the right-hand side of the page. This document features most of the rules that govern the blog, the rankings, and anything else related to WipEout AGR World Championships. This includes the rules for making an application, so if you're interested in taking part you MUST head there first!
Another thing you may be interested in is becoming a tournament supervisor. You'll see this mentioned throughout the Terms & Conditions document, because as the site gains popularity I WON'T be able to act as administrator for every event. I would prefer it if people wanted to take on this responsibility sooner rather than later, so if you want to become a tournament supervisor, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
The first race will not be held for about a month, or not at all until we have enough applicants. In any case, those of you who have enlisted in the World Championships will receive a notification via e-mail as to when the first race will be held. It would be greatly appreciated if you could encourage others who play the game to get involved too: just send them to http://wipeoutwc.blogspot.co.uk/.
Let's rev up the pace!
Are YOU the master of Anti-Gravity Racing ...?
Welcome to WipEout Anti-Gravity Racing: World Class!
No doubt you're here because you crave the high-octane world of WipEout! But have you ever wondered how good you really are? Perhaps you've only ever played against the AI, and you're probably pretty good. But against real-life opponents, who all think they have what it takes to be the best, do you have what it takes?
And that's what we're here to find out. Enter into the Anti-Gravity Racing World Championships here to determine your global ranking. Every week, friendly WipEout tournaments will be hosted in one of the formats (HD-Fury OR 2048), and if your entry is successful, your points will be submitted to your profile and global ranking. Earn virtual trophies to demonstrate your ability in the world of AGR, and see how successful you are in each event.
Do you have what it takes to be the best? Or will you be left behind in the dust ...?
Whatever you do, don't WIPEOUT!!
NOTE: ranking is separated into each format. If you wish to develop your ranking in both formats, apply to tournaments for each as often as possible!
