Smurfy, I just noticed something. Didn't we do 30 laps last night in your lobby? The schedule says we were supposed to do 25.

We did 30 laps in lobby 2. I noticed some of the ST cars took more than an hour to finish.

yeah sorry about that, i ran a 25 lap race before hand and i felt that it was too short for the time scale we are aiming for, moving the laps to 30 gave us the hour mark we were looking for.

the only reason why it was so late, is mainly my fault, i have not run a series looking after two lobbies before, if you noticed last week's (Test) event, there was one lobby, which qualifying took place and was able to set the grid under lobby points, so we was able to start a lot earlier, but working with paper and pen, and sorting racers into lobbys and postitions, looking at re routing racers with connection issues, its very difficult for me.

In case people were wondering what "something" is, he meant the tiny ifca url toward the bottom of the plate.

What's up with the points format?

Points:
BAR Smurfy wrote:POINTS

1 Bonus point will be awarded for Fastest Lap
1 Bonus point will be awarded for Lobby win


1st2nd3rd4th5th6th7th8th9th10th11th12th
Room 1200197195193191189187185183181179177

Room 4127125123121119117115113111109107105

From Info:

Season Scoring

- Driver Points will be determined by overall driver position at the end of the race using the Standard IFCA point scale of 1 point per place.

- There will be a single bonus point for fastest lap of the race in each class.
[/font]

- Two driver teams will be scored as a combined finishing average on the points chart against singles. This means that teams will not only be competing against other teams, but also against singles. Team drivers will be rated individually however. As a team you will be allowed to use private chat with each other. As long as a team finishes in tandem, i.e., 1-2, 2-3, 3-4 etc., they will earn the higher place. A 1-2 finish, earns a win. A 2-3 finish earns 2nd. A 3-4 finish earns 3rd and so on. If team drivers do not finish together but have a gapped finish of 1-8, or 3-10, or 6-12 for example, then their finishing order will be averaged, i.e., added together and divided by 2. 1 8=9/2=4.5 for example.
[font=Arial]

- Manufacturer points are added up by podium count, 3 for 1st, 2 for 2nd, and 1 for 1st.

Also from Info:
If you lag out of a lobby that is already in session you will lose all driver points earned for the session.

This is one of many rule discrepancies between the stuff in "info" and what is actually being enforced.

yeah thats right, the point scale you have quoted noting rooms 1 2 3 4, that was there as a stop gap, with hindsight i was meant to put in the 1 point scale but it slipped my mind. apologies

I have a suggestion for future racing,series etc. Make sure that your NAT settings are OPEN people !! It really gets old having NAT problems all because some idiot is either too inconsiderate of others to A: FIX your crap ! B: Being a PU#$Y and just saying screw it I can can in......and never fixing your damn settings ! total BS. I say this also from just being in a practice lobby with a few ......get my invite (wrong one by the way --- then had to try the other lobby, which was already going etc....really?? )

With that I guess I'll resign from this one. I have a funny feeling it will never get resolved ....

Well, at least I can race first 30 minutes of the race, but i think that is not right if someone else can be in the room.

DNF's earn 0 points, so it wouldn't be worth it to start the race without the intention of finishing it. Thanks for letting us know.

Another suggestion from some people I've heard from is the need to keep the series unique by enforcing the no mic rule. This was the only known series that used a no mic rule and gave it that extra something that made it different, and more real, than other series. I would encourage the managers to keep this standard.

I agree entirely. Without mics people are more careful. With mics people wreck on the first lap.
