Announcing the Motorstorm Apocalypse TSA Festival

Taking to the city

It’s not often we hold a tournament for old games, but TSA Network is changing that as we are about to stage what used to be a very popular game here on TheSixthAxis. That’s right, Motorstorm Apocalypse is back and, as it’s free on Playstation Plus, here’s hoping its back with a vengeance.

Sixteen drivers will be able to participate in a six week long championship. Every week, the drivers will meet up and race over one area in the Apocalypse world (eg The Rock). Rather than counting race results though, all drivers will record their completion time for each individual circuit. At the end of the racing, everyone will count up their combined times and then points will be awarded. We shall be using the F1 system here so theoretically (if with a full lobby) six will miss out on points.

The six areas we shall be visiting are:

  • Downtown
  • Mainline
  • Boardwalk
  • Interstate
  • Skyline
  • The Rock (Endurance Final Round)

Number and Organisation of Entrants

The maximum number of entrants allowed is sixteen, with places given out on a first come first serve basis. To enter please post in the forum here. To be included you must state what days/times you are available and what vehicle you shall be using throughout the tournament (e.g. Muscle Car – Patriot Surger) in your post. The deadline for entry is Friday 3rd August.

NB: If a player attends a round but disconnects/cannot attend a specific race(s) then the slowest time out of the runners will be added to the player’s time. If someone does not turn up for all four rounds, then obviously they score nothing.

TSAN Tournament Coverage

As with DiRT Showdown I would like to ask all contenders to try their best to record the races and upload them to YouTube as soon as they can (that day if possible). No editing is required, as that is what I will be doing. I am pleased to announce that YouTube personality and good friend of TSA, Chuggy will be providing the commentary for TSAN TC during the tournament, so please give him all the support you can for his first TSAN gig!

Headsets are always welcome and chat lobbies will most certainly be set up for everyone anyway. So all that’s left is to wish everyone who enters the best of luck in the coming weeks!

This is a community run tournament put together by DeathinFlamez.

  1. Signed up :) Yet to decide which vehicle to use :P Also apologies in advance if I get too frustrated on a headset.

  2. About 6 months too late for me i’m afraid.

  3. I knew I should have started playing! Haven’t played it yet, by the time i know what vehicle I want the entries will be closed :/

    • All I’d say is even if you don’t know, take a punt :) Never know you may do really well!

      • Already signed in :)
        i guess you’ll have to play the game to unlock vehicles, so mine will be pretty slow :P

  4. Ive already entered, quite looking forward to this i must say.

  5. I will enter soon just need to play motorstorm apocalypse a bit more to decide what vehicle I want to use but I’ll definitely enter soon.

  6. May enter, but still piised off with the free plus version, didn’t realise the games save wasn’t transferrable, so lost all my progress. Unless I go out and by a BD version again, as I was a numpty and traded my copy in straight away!

    • There is a way. You need to make a copy of both save files (one for the retail and one for the digital) on to a usb memory stick and open them on a pc. If I remember correctly they should consist of folders with files in them and by copying one of the files from the retail to the digital save-file-folder and copying it back to your ps3, you should get your progress back. Try Google for more details.

      At least it worked for me with infamous.

  7. I’m moving house and my interim property has a slow connection so I’m sorry to say that I’ll have to miss out on this. Have fun those that do.

  8. already signed up and it’s going to be awesome!
    and if ur unsure what vehicle to use, just post a comment in the thread to secure a place in the tourny and choose vehicle later =D
