Whiplash has already put this in the first post but just a reminder for noobs like me who can't tell the time, you can check what the current time is in CEST here.

I'll make sure I'm there super early tonight so I have no chance of missing again :)

I probably won't be able to make the next one as I'm going to the Formula E race in London and doubt I'll be back in time.

Good luck everybody for the final though and thanks for organising this Whip. I've really enjoyed it.

Happy and surprised to win, though Alex and Oompa were missing.

Next goal to be in top 4 overall after these monsters, all better if someone won't show up. :)

Yeah I played a good cup and I had luck too.
In the 11th race I passed through about 10 cars in a crossing and I found myself in 2nd place without any expectation :lol:

Unfortunately I can't participate on Sundays but this has been a fun championship. Any plans to do something else in the future?

Pfff, too many quits. Maybe we could postpone the last race?

I'm not sure about that. It would be nice to have something automatized, so that we have some live competition every week.

Seems 8pm on a Sunday isn't the best time, i agree with postponing .)

I think Enrico Papi and Carlos Sainz first idea was to have separate championships, with 2 (or more) divisions. At the end, some of div1 would be relagated to div2, and some of div2 would go up. This way this would go on "forever" and it's less work for you... :D

Yes, it sounds good on paper, but it wouldn't work in reality. You never know how many players will join to play the cup. So, saying that somebody goes up or down means actually nothing. If we get 20 players joined to the server, I would rather let them all play div1 cup than saying that some of them should go out. That system would work only if we knew that we have stable number of 35-40 players. But now that's not the case: sometimes we get 20, sometimes 28 etc. But we always aim to have full grid in div1 cup and that's the reason why we play like this.

Good luck all! I put money on Azev. If he not wins, put into account so we can print ts t-shirts!

Nooooooo!!! I was so looking forward to battling it out with you for the championship... without you it's not nearly as fun or interesting. Still no homo. But much sadness. :(

Good cup, that managed to win more easily, because it lacked enough players.

Thanks for organising Whip. I've enjoyed it a lot.

As I pointed out right at the beginning, a cup like this was never going to be easy to organise or run, but I think you did a decent job in the end (even if we will never agree on some things :wink: )

In the end, most TS cups I've seen organised like this always lose players after the first few rounds and we could see that again with this cup as we dropped from nearly 30 at the start to just 18 last night. That's not through anybody's fault, that's just how these things go. I guess it's quite difficult for most players over the age of 24 to dedicate a specific time each week to playing these cups because they don't know what their work or family life might require. That's certainly true for me - I would love to dedicate as much time to this as I did when I was 18/19, but it's just not possible anymore.

But anyway, let's put that into perspective. A few years ago, almost all organised cups had a 20-player limit. Sometimes only 10 people would turn up. Looking at it this way, to still have 18 people turn up for the final cup after 6 weeks of playing is actually quite good. Even though I do agree with Sig too - I would never have finished top 3 last night with people like T, Oompa, Alex, Serif, Matic and kiki about :)
