I can't seem to find any exclusive UK threads on this forum, so I thought it would be sensible to start one since I know there's quite a lot of competition in London for WMMT3 these days. But are there any scenes happening anywhere else in the UK?

Nope, it isn't version B, and the 59k course in VS battle is disabled too. Also, there's zero competition. The only thing it is good for, if for getting an unshaded card completed to transfer over to WMMT3 for the racing meter + R soundtrack.

yeah i had the pacman sticker on me evo 9, but now it's blue with two black stripes down the middle. i'm currently not using the evo 9 as i'm concentrating on dress up for my z33 and story mode and dress up for my r2. i do play troc now and then but not too often as it is loud there.

i think i've raced your ghost as well. can't remember.

Holy shit. It's a pound per play at the UK?
That's expensive.
I can grab various frozen goodies for only 99 pence at Tesco.

Has anyone investigated the Birmingham area?

It would be nice if there is a 4-player WMMT3 machine somewhere more central. Unless we can persuade Tamworth Namco Station to get an extra 2 cabinets.

Btw Si***, are your the owner of that GDB-C (OlivA)?

M.S is my friend and we usually go together to play Maximum Tune 3.

M.S. usually goes to Trafford Centre and sometimes Tamworth since its only 2 player.

I usually go to Tamworth and try to go to Trafford Centre or London if I have more time and free time.

Hopefully will have more time in February when Si***, M.S and OlivA will back out to battle with all you ppl... :lol:

I'm going to be out of the country from the 14th January for 2 months in Malaysia. For 2RM a game, it works out about 30p/credit over there ^^

Here for (no particular reason :D) is the current Osaka TA leaderboard on the 2P-side machine in Tamworth:
