"As soon as the WCG announces its rules I will train hard and then decide whether I'll attend the tournament"Niklas 'Sliver' Timmermann has already won the WCG and the SEC, and has represented Germany in racing titles many times but the choice of TrackMania Nations Forever as a title for WCG 2009 could mean he must train at a game he has voiced his dislike for in the past.
Sliver told Slidestar.org that he awaits for WCG to reveal all the information regarding the title before deciding to compete. "At the moment i'm only racing a bit in the VRTCC, because my studies are taking up most of my time. But as soon as the WCG announces its rules I will train hard and then decide whether I'll attend the tournament."
With only the top three qualifying for the Grand Final, Niklas 'Sliver' Timmermann's goal would be nothing less. " My goal of course is to qualify for the Grand Final. A 4th place or similar would be a disappointment," said Sliver, "but if I see earlier already that there's just too much space between the top players and me, I will choose to not attend the event."
There is of course precious little time for Sliver to reach the same level as long-term players of the free racing title, but he already races in two games for SK Gaming and his previous racing experiences could come in useful. However, Sliver voiced his hopes that the WCG would return to more classical racing titles. "I hope, even if it is not nice, that TMNF will soon be replaced at the WCG by a steering wheel game again."
