Title: Who will win the live racing contest at WSM 2006?
Post by: BonzaiJoe on April 16, 2006, 03:57:44 AM
CTG must be considered the biggest favourite due to his noRH results lately - but with Argammon, myself, Akoss and other strong live pipsqueaks, it is all open! Now vote, who do you think will win the game?

In my opinion it will be:

1 Bonzai Joe
2 Argammon
3 Akoss Poo

CTG can overtake me if he drinks much less than me. In my opinion he is the master when he has hours to drive without RH. But on a new track, when he has only 5 trials, he will be beaten by the mentioned 3, and maybe by Zak, too.

You are right...  :?

It also depends on the cars a lot.


If we just drive Lm002,countach and the like I should have a good chance to win it.


If we just drive Melange,Jaguar,and especially INDY,I wouldn't even be top 3 and I would bet heavily on Bonzai Joe!


With cars like 911,corvette,audi I am not that good in live racing either.



So my overall guess is:

1)Bonzai Joe
2)Argammon-Akoss-CTG depending on car choice and crash rates  :lol:

the official race will be the following:

every competitior designs a track and announces a car for it. Of course eveyone can select his favourite car - we"ll probably have some indys, but some like slow cars too :D

Gooooooooooooooood!  :-) What about a ten-minutes-track for the BB 1.0 Indy for life racing? (I'm thinking about my track "Hell 5"!)  :lol:

What about an other Porsche 962 track with a loop in the middle of a straight on a water? - again we would need a no-RH loopcut with 200 mph like in 2004. :D:D:D
(Two years ago BJ and me did it - but we had about half an hour to drive then... :?)

Or a Skoda track? In 2004, I won both Skoda tracks. :D:D:D

I will build a hypericy Countach track... kidding.

My real choice is Acura, it gives a lot of possibilities with hard handling powergear. :)

I won't race the skoda.

It's a totally unrealistic cheat car!

OR I will design a car with max speed 10mph and acceleration like a slug.Happy live racing  :twisted:

I should be closing down my contest for all my track designing abilities and all my spare time will be fully invested in creating a live racing track...

Don't escape from challenge! I could have also said: nah, I hate Countach, I won't race with it. Last year, I almost won a live Countach track. I would have missed that if I had ignored that track, just because I find the car boring and/or unrealistic. And you will lose precious points in the overall competition (yes, there was an overall classification in the end last year). And the community spirit have to make all the drivers to race each other's track.

It's only a shitty game. There's no place for vengeance.

Escape???
Helllo?!

The skoda is a CHEAT car,yes a CHEAT car and not an original stunts car.

The performance is unrealistic.The steering is totally unrealistic even compared to test drive 1.


I will -not- race that car as it doesn't add anything good to the original game.




I think some thoughts here might need to grow up.
Yes it is a shitty game.But that does not mean we have to edit stupid cheat cars in.And while I can accept the melange the skoda is no challange it is a badly designed cheat car.



PLease.....in the future.... for the sake of the bottle of whine..... never mind

Well that's one contender for the original game box out of the way if someone makes a Skoda track.

I mean, all the cars are unrealistic. The game is unrealistic, that's what's fun about it. I realise the Skoda is more unrealistic than the Melange and other cars, but are you really racing Stunts for realism?

I hope there will not be a Skoda track, because I don't like the car much, and it's hard to race live with. But if there is, of course I'll race. I don't see what I would gain from not racing ? Except if I was leading and wanted to give the game to someone who wanted it more than me.

Argammon, I'm sorry to say that and don't want to hurt you, but that really sound bullshit... Skoda was used in Stunts competitions, in live contests... please, if somebody desings a Skoda track, race with us! ;)

Btw I haven't said that I really would design that Skoda track for sure.

After drinking some Palinka, nobody will have any problem with any car, and everybody will want to take part in every races. :D Btw, my main problem with Skoda is also its "unrealistic" behaviour. Well, this is an unrealistic game... But for example, when I saw Stunts for the first time, I wanted to race with manual transmission immediately. Why? It was harder, but I felt automatic transmission very unrealistic in any kind of car racing. It seemed ridicuolusly simple, like the acceleration of Skoda...

Well, we probably won't. Sorry, I forgot to add you in the poll CTG - you're not active enough on the forum :-)

Skoda is not my favorite car of course but we need a silly race too and it's good for this purpose.

Post by: Argammon on April 23, 2006, 11:58:46 AM
1)The point is that the skoda is not an official car.
If I race stunts it's kind of 'old games nostalgia' so I am not interested in any non original cars.
If someone makes a non original car it has to be very good and thoughtfully designed and not look like a 5 year old kindergarden kid made it like the skoda.
This is a skoda and not a formula 1 car!

2)Realism

The driving behaviour of the cars is not THAT unrealistic if you discount the 'bugs' for example if you drive a normal long corner I think the realism is 'ok' though far away from being perfect.At least it feels like I am driving a CAR.
With the skoda I don't feel like I am driving a CAR but rather some undefined way to fast slippery being.

3)If someone designed a rocket-car as they use them on the salt lake I would have said ok might be fun for a joke.But this is a Skoda!!!

4)Next time someone designs a 245mph "Soap box car" .... sorry there is a border and Skoda crossed it for me.I hated it from the beginning.


Imagine a variant of chess where all pieces but 1 could just move 1 square forward per turn and the remaining last piece could teleport anywhere.

Sorry there is a border even for stupid ideas.We don't have to do everything.

Skoda topic closed for me.

In such a chess variant, it would be automatically checkmate from the start  :-)

Argammon: I understand why you hate the Skoda, but again, it's just your own problem if you don't race (if there will indeed be a Skoda track). Then someone else will win the game, it's fair enough.
