Formula-2 Championship Season #1

PostSun Jun 08, 2008 11:40 pm

First, i planned to start new antislider fairplay cup but most of players thinks it is boring...so, i think this is more interesting.

Rules:
-----------------------------------------
- Rounds: 12
- Car: TSB-F2
- Race Weekend: Qualifying = 4laps/Ghost, Race One = 20-30laps, Race Two = 8laps (reversed race order)
- Fuel: No
- Damage: No
- Points: Qualifying: Pole +1, Race One 20 15 10 8 6 5 4 3 2 1, Race Two 10 8 6 5 4 3 2 1
- WHEN?: After UEFA Euro 2008 (starting day not decided yet)
- Fairplay: Yes

Fairplay Rules:
----------------------------------------
Not Allowed:

- Driving in the wrong way
- Pushing or blocking
- Leaving your car on the race line if you have to quit
- "Talking" during the race (unless you have good reason)

Remember:

- If you are getting lapped, give room for the faster player
- All races will be recorded in case if someone protest, then jury decides what kind of penalty will be given
- If you go out of the track and lose your speed, stay out of racing line until you get your speed back

Only registered players can join, room for 15 players!!! Registering starts now on this topic, only player name needed.

Registered players so far: 4/15

1. Scud
2. Ippon²-dede

I don't get what's the point of this. Shouldn't it be the opposite (first race shorter and then second race with reversed order and more laps?). In the way you planned Race 2 would become too much linked to luck (and probably will result in some rough racing).

And again, what's the point of assigning fastest lap point in a racing cup? No need to copy Keppana's sucky ideas.

About points system: if you accept up to 15 players, and you assign points to 8 players only, then ending up 9th or 15th won't make any difference. Wouldn't it be a better idea to give points to everybody?

Basically count me in, but I really have to check schedules before confirming it. Will we have a break for holidays?

I wanna keep this cup tight as possible, this way slower players has some change to get points when they start in first rows. It may cause some bad luck races for someone, but thats racing...sometimes it is about the luck.

I wanna keep this in formula style, but maybe i add points for top 10. And because of race 2, i think everyone has change to get points.

I really have to check schedules before confirming it. Will we have a break for holidays?


Yes there will have some breaks, i will post cup starting day soon as i can, but main schedule is 1 Round in every second week (sunday or monday).
I would like to chat with you about this but i have msn problems, cannot login!!!

Ps. No more points for fastest lap, but pole position is +1 point.

But then again: you have Race 1 with 30 laps and with quali starting position. After that you drive a sprint race with reverse order (=first row is potentially slower than last row of 3 seconds/lap). And both races have the same value for the championship. Naturally players starting from row 1 won't ever make it to the victory, so they will keep blocking or being pushed out in corners.
Players starting from behind will try to gain as much positions as possible because the race ends in few laps. To me it sounds really a nonsense. Just say that race 2 is rough racing.

Anyway, I said that I'm basically in, but I need to check final rules & schedule to decide.

Well, i have think about these rules too...and im gonna do some changes in points. Check new points in rules section. But these are final rules, if you are not happy with new rules, you dont have to join in this. About race two, starting order is reversed because this way this cup may be more exciting--->no same players in podium in every race.

It may take time when this cup starts...i were in Austria (euro 2008) and now we are planning to to visit in USA. But i will report soon as i know when this cup really starts. I hope we get more registered players in, its not fun to race with 4-5 players.

Maybe that image should've been posted at Rendy Adrian's threads. He announced several cups, but he never released any schedule for them.
Same funny thing happened when announcing tracks: "I'm making this track", but no img or download link associated :D
After all, Scud organized a cup already.
