Title: New teams for 2021
Post by: dreadnaut on November 20, 2020, 06:41:04 PM
We've had quite a few new names on the scoreboard recently. Should we look forward to some new teams? Or old teams coming back with a vengeance? 8)

I'm afraid that Looping Warriors won't come back. Poo is now a henpecked old fart, while Usrin became a bourgeois Norwegian scientist. :D

Plenty of other pipsqueaks to team up with, unless you are also an old fart ;)

Would it be possible for me join team Slowdrive?

Cas, Leo?

I am planning to take part in the next season without a team—I'll have a different focus—so there is an empty spot in Rolling Stunts, or there are two great pipsqueaks looking for a new team ;)

I give my thumbs up to KyLiE!  In fact, I invited him!  Leo, what do you think?  Marco?

My teammates so far (ghost-free list, or at least not my ghosts):

Akoss Poo
Alan Rotoi (for a single race, LOL)
Argammon
Bismarck
Bonzai Joe
Cordi Montserrat
Diesel Joe
Juank23 (only in IRC2003)
Krys Toff
Pedro Antonio
satanziege
Super Brian
Usrin
Zak McKracken

Maybe I should extend this list with some new names...  ;D

Quote from: Seeker1982
I'm back able to race in assetto corsa competizione due to which I'm not able&willing to put so much effort in stunts. I do quit RH/racing in stunts, but I may continue GAR and OWOOT-racing

So it seems I would be alone in Rolling Stunts for 2021...  I'm open to join any team that would benefit from my performances... ;)

Hey, Leo hasn't responded yet about KyLiE joining. We're only three in slowdrive and Marco hasn't been on most races. We're also having little activity in Slowdrive :(

Poo announced his comeback, Looping Warriors are back.

That's great!

I have been a bit uncertain about how to treat teams that are in... hiatus? I have tried to stick to the rule "if there is only one active pipsqueak left, the team is inactive."  But I'm happy to hear other opinions on the matter.

Maybe Daniel3D is looking for a team?

I am,
I don't know how many races I can drive.
But I'd like to be part of the action.

Which team's will participate in the next season?
(Although slowdrive seems the obvious choice 8))
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: afullo on December 27, 2020, 07:06:33 PM
If someone will join me, Rolling Stunts will be of the game, otherwise as dreadnaut just said, only one pipsqueak is not a team...
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: Daniel3D on December 27, 2020, 07:38:28 PM
I'm happy to join you Afullo  8)

I'll be the designated driver among the pipsqueaks... 8)
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: afullo on December 27, 2020, 11:02:36 PM
Lol, I'm happy to have you as a teammate and to ensure the team participation also for 2021, too 8)

Of course, we have still space for two other pipsqueaks, in case some other would be one of us... ;)
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: Daniel3D on December 28, 2020, 01:18:19 AM
I believe that theoretically I could create a ghost to fill the team..
That one will be dangling at the bottom of the chart as well so I don't think anyone will care..  8)

(Although, I don't have a Dissociative identity disorder and I don't fancy getting one.. it's just to much effort 8) 8) 8) )

[this is not a statement about others making, having or having had a ghost or there motives]

Clean slate so to speak...

It is also a more than concrete possibility...  :D

Guys, so I'll team up with you for the coming year!
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: Daniel3D on December 28, 2020, 08:13:13 PM
O, nice.
Welcome to the pack  8)
(Assuming that Afullo doesn't mind)

That's an interesting roster you are setting up at Rolling Stunts! I do wonder about what's in store for Slowdrive, and where KyLiE will ultimately land. We also are yet to hear news on the plans of the Traction Faction camp... the silly season (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silly_season#Sports) is far from over!
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: Cas on December 29, 2020, 03:40:06 AM
I have enjoyed being in Slowdrive so far, but I've seen that teams have changed a lot with time and many pipsqueaks have been to many teams, so I wanted to try something different for next season. I feel something special about my native team, though. I have never tried another before, so it was a hard decision to make. It's just something I want to try. I've been messaging the guys and trying to make up my mind one way or the other. KyLiE has told me he'd join too. Being four and with three of us completely new to the team, it may be a whole new team or we may keep the team name. I don't know. I am open to any of the two.
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: afullo on December 29, 2020, 11:38:19 PM
For me it is basically the same. Maybe with a little preference in maintaining the current name, but nothing more...
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: Cas on December 30, 2020, 01:05:04 AM
Since you're a founding member, it makes sense to keep the name. We could add to the team's history then :)
Title: Re: New teams for 2021
Post by: Daniel3D on December 30, 2020, 07:00:36 AM
Then we keep the name 8)

Wacky Raçers died before they started...

I have been a bit uncertain about how to treat teams that are in... hiatus? I have tried to stick to the rule "if there is only one active pipsqueak left, the team is inactive."  But I'm happy to hear other opinions on the matter.

I disagree, this year has been plagued with setbacks in the real world and had made it clear to me that the future is uncertain.

In my opinion
For a team to count, every race has at least one team member race for team points. If only one member remains than that member has to bear the responsibility of the whole team and race them all.
But that should be his (or her) own choice to so. Being alone in a team is no fun though, has no team spirit.

In short
- at the start a team must have at least two active members
- every race has to be presented by at least one member
- at least one member has to finish the season.
That is my opinion on teams

Post by: afullo on December 30, 2020, 02:50:43 PM
- every race has to be presented by at least one member
- at least one member has to finish the season.

Maybe it is a bit limiting. For example, by basing on participation from previous years, CTG and Poo are not assured to race at least 9 tracks during the season, and maybe they will both miss a certain one. Nevertheless, the presence of Looping Warriors can add interest in the team battle...

I'm not sure how "the future is uncertain" goes along with stricter rules ???  In difficult times, I would go for more lenient rules: ZakStunts should be fun, not more responsibilities.

I think I'd like to see "cause and effect" rules, rather than "requirements". If there is more than one active pipsqueak, then we'll count the team as active. Even if they can only pipsqueak twice during the season.

Agreed. My idea was not based upon Stunts competition, but more in general.

Indeed, I raced in running competitions (http://usacafasse.it/trofeo_vdl/vdL_attuale.htm) in which a team was classified only if at least a rac3r (not necessarily always the same) was present in every race, or a very limited number of total absences was allowed.

But, as both of you remark, these are difficult times, so asking people for racing even if they are not willing to, just to fill the scoreboard for satisfying a condition, can not lead to boost interest...

KyLiE, Daniel3D, Cas, you should now have access to the Rolling Stunts forum section, here in the Team Zone (http://forum.stunts.hu/index.php?board=25.0). Afullo is now the section moderator.

Looping Warriors has its full roster now that Usrin is back, Traction Faction has returned with KaoS and Heretic and Slowdrive remains a going concern with Leo and Marco. What else is left? MeganiuM and Yellow Fleas re-forming? :)
