  Blocking or not | Example
Posted by: Sainted - 10-25-2016, 09:24 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (3)

After 19 years of simracing, I finally realize that I don't have a clue what many people call blocking.

Attached is a replay of my battle with Monza this evening. 1st lap of the race, I slipstream by, clear him and then take the normal racing line. The guy gets quite mad, tries a bonzai move, which goes wrong, and then throws his toys out of the pram.

In my view I did nothing wrong and never impeded the progress of a fellow competitor. Similar moves are being done all the time in real racing.

I would appreciate if you all could share your views: have I done anything wrong, or should I have continued on the inside line up until the corner?

  An intriguing read
Posted by: AOR Nova - 09-02-2016, 04:06 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (5)

Greetings everyone!

Would like to make a suggestion which could help the activity side of the team and it's servers Smile

Been on the various FBM servers, and I've noticed a handful of racers who would like to see a "elite", if you put it that way, FBM server. A server in which is based on rating, best lap, and experience, to bring out the best of the best in terms of racing.
A few people have brought this up, such as SnuxFox, a FBM racer as well, that the racing in the regular FBM servers, although exciting, and very active, can be sometimes a dread, annoyance due to inexperienced drivers in amongst the ones who can drive. Not limited to the FBM class, the GTi class is relatable too.

Crashes happen very often, as well as hackers, tweakers, just to name the few occurances.

Back on to the point, what I'd like to put forward, is a FBM server (and GTi, for that matter, seperate of course), run by us, that would cover the more high-class aspect of the LFS demo-based community.
It would be set up along (as an example) these lines :

> The racer must have at least 85% or higher rating in the particular car class in any team Airio server (MRc, AA, AMG)
(Meaning for FBM, he/she must have 85% rt in the AA Demo FBM server, or if he is in GTi class, then 85% rt in the GTi server, etc)
> The racer must have a Airio-based, no tweak 1:13.30 or lower laptime for FBM, 1:34.00 or lower laptime for GTi
> The racer must have sufficient LFS experience (to be deemed)
Failure to meet any of these set regulations would mean he/she would not be able to participate in the Elite server of his class.

---------------------------------------------
This would help with server activity on both sides, as the Elite Server gets active, more would join the regular servers to try to better their skill to meet the criteria.
This would mean all our servers would probably get activity!

Also, we would also be able to find more potential members for our team from the Elite server, that we never seen or considered before. And since they're online, they would be active members, and that's what we strive to look out for.

It'll also be a change, not saying that you can't race in the regular servers (heck, the racing's probably more exciting there!), but, there would be a choice, and choices matter in how the public views our service to the community.

No one, I think, has done this, ignoring the default "PB Time limit" in Airio servers.

Just a pointer to consider, I hope it's been a good read, and, if any suggestions, or support, will be gladly appreciated!

Cheers

edit : Moved from Team Mgt
Note : Highlighted by buddy fnatic, this has been done before a time ago? However, possible to have a re look into whether it could be done again in present Smile

FFS... it's been quite a while! It must've been two years since my last visit here.

Sorry for not being around, been busy (work/travel... work-related travel ) and forgot about this place as I haven't been racing.
So I will catchup reading peoples threads over the next few hours...

What have you all been up to? Hope you all are doing well.
