IHLC #19 - Sunday 15 November @ 19:00 CET

Post by dede » Fri Nov 13, 2009 7:32 am

What's this cup?
The goal of International Hot Laps Cup is to get as fast as possible with each default car in a brand new track. Players will compete with every car, at the same server, with the same amount of laps. Fastest lap will show the real speed of every driver.

When?
November the 15th 2009 (Sunday) @ 19:00 CET (18:00 GMT, 18:00 UK Portugal, 19:00 CET Germany Italy and Spain, 20:00 Finland...)

How can I join?
The cup is open to demo players also. So just connect to the server to join the cup. Please play the whole cup if you join the server.

How does this cup work?
Car: each car will be driven once (order: EasySlider, Slider, Speeder, Spinner, AntiSlider OR random in case of one server only)
Track: Unreleased - you will be able to download it during the cup
Laps: depending by track-length
Ghost Mode: Enabled
Servers: Community Server [ITA]
Rules: Fastest lap for each car counts. Times will be counted together in order to establish the winner of 'All Cars Ranking' (EasySlider+Slider+Speeder+Spinner+AntiSlider).

Little change to the cup, that won't make big difference.. There won't be laps limit anymore, as it'll be replaced by time limit: 6 minutes for each car.

See ya'll!

Yep. I also want to know how it exactly works. What if someone does personal best lap between "race is over" message and manual(?) /continue? At least in F1-league practices, sessions didn't stop instantly after session was stated to be over.

I think this would be better and perhaps more realistic: More like an real F1 quali session (your last statement that is)...I suppose its up to dede though.

Correction: there will be 7 minutes sessions (so that there'll be about 6m driving, if we consider that track loading isn't excluded from countdown).

There'll be 0 seconds idle time between "Session is over!" message and the end of the race.

Lap limit was better in my opinion.

It's only a little change and it will be the same for everybody. We haven't even played the cup yet so at least give it a chance before passing judgement :roll:

Maybe. But I will just miss 'final lap' warning.

After some tests, I changed my mind.. It'll be the default way (max laps fixed basing on track length).

Fu...!!! I missed the race. I didn't look that time carefully. 19:00CET, not GMT. :oops: So Janne, you had luck this time. :roll:
Good job. :wink:

I agree. :o I didn't do any better than usual, maybe even worse with some of the cars after a long while without driving much with default cars. I guess Tijny and dede were just even more rusty than me, besides them being injured.

Best way to learn is to do some (thousands of laps) lap wanking. 8)

Hehe, I'm not injured, just a scrape on my knee. I kinda brought that up as a joke because dede was having physical difficulties himself. I just hadn't touched default cars at all for 3-4 months until 30 minutes before the start, so I'm actually surprised I drove as well as I did.

nah your good at default you beat me 1.5 sec on small tracks remember and this new track was 30 sec,
plus the factor you have more experience with default which then the time should widen up a bit too 2/2.5 sec and i was 4.8 sec off janne,
so you would be about 2.3-3 sec off janne this time it would have been good for 6-7th place ;)

Results are now published on the homepage. Congrats Janne for winning the IHLC for the first time in your TS career (if you didn't win it in first two editions - I don't have the results here..)!

I'm planning to organize IRT soon too, but I really don't have time to make a track. Can anybody provide good racing tracks for IRT/IHLC's? If not, this would mean to use existing tracks.. maybe too big change to even keep the same cup name.

My comments about IHLC:
- not very satisfied by number of players, but this could be because of late announcement and because we never had this kind of cups in last two months;
- I'm really happy about my performance, because my conditions were really bad during the cup: for the whole day, I had problems with my left eye (I couldn't focalize.. everything was doubled).. I was about not to join the cup, but at the end I decided to try to play and eventually stop in case things had gone worse. Happy that I beat Tijny, but a bit disappointed for the mistake in last lap with Speeder: I drove to grass for a couple of tenths, stopped accelerating and still crossed finishline with 28.0 :|

No, only IHLC and IRT are back. Other cups aren't interesting enough.
