Holy shit... nice stats on that page! Great job.
A shame I'm a noob at wanking, but maybe now I'll have some extra motivation (like beating azev :twisted: )

This competition is a dream for many of us who love the fast laps but 86 circuits is TOO MUCH. In itself we are few players and only two players have reached 100%.

There are reasons for that. If we set less tracks, players won't play more for sure. In the end, you'll get pretty the same results and probably more boring competition.
Btw, you need to know that percentage of driven tracks isn't the most important thing. The algorithm behind the ranking puts you higher rather by your skill than by having 100% of driven tracks. For example, T can easily be the best with Speeder even by driving 75-80% of tracks.
Have in mind that this is an 'always goin on' competition. So, there is no reason to hurry anywhere. ;)
Btw, all the cars are still in test phase and they will all be replaced sooner or later, and the ranking will be restarted.

suggestion besides the all-time ranking:

- 1 new track per week
- "current top drivers" ranking (sum of 4 tracks that are 1-4 weeks old -> so current week track does not influence the ranking until the track has been there for 7 days)
- no tracks including jumps, where a jump bug might save time (hit% has been around 1-1.5% for me in J_Splash with AntiSlider-E8 and it saved around 0.15sec; I ended up with a 25.027 (24.811 reachable), which was about the lap time I was heading, but I would have been fine with a middle 25.0 or at some point maybe also with just a high 25.0)
- no energy drop in server (I love to find out interesting bounce opportunities, i.e. Slider-E8 at de_Feat: 2 bounces -> 32.357 (ssdfds: 32.517))

That's more frustrating than jump bugs. :wink:

LOL. I tried 2 bounces too but it was so frustrating to execute that I gave up.

That doesn't count. The cars are already upgraded to E9. :p
And, next time the server is up, offline wanking won't be counted either. :p

But then there will hopefully be just tracks which are local as fast as online with the server cars and settings.
