Competition 2020 / Re: Cars and rules for 2020

Let's say you got 239 hours last race, you get 241 hours this race, does that mean you only get 1 point from this race and no leftover hours?

Uh? I think you would get 2 points, and with zero hours left. Let's try with an example:

A. Always carry over
Race 1: (0 from previous) + 239 hours --> no points, all 239 carried over
Race 2: 239 + 400 = 639 --> 2 points, 159 carried over
Race 3: 159 + 200 = 359 --> 1 point, 119 carried over
Race 4: 119 + 50 = 169 --> 0 points, 169 carried over

B. Carry over unless you get points
Race 1: (0 from previous) + 239 hours --> no points, all 239 carried over
Race 2: 239 + 400 = 639 --> 2 points, 159 carried over reset!
Race 3: 0 + 200 = 200 --> 0 points, 200 carried over
Race 4: 200 + 50 = 250 --> 1 point, 10 carried over reset!

I think this would make things more difficult for those who stay in the lead for longer; in particular, it would decrease the incentive to keep the top position in the last third of the race, leading to more uncertain finales.

Might be completely wrong though :P

Carrying over, as you pointed out, means that LTB goes from being a "race score" to a "season score". We could just sum up all the leading hours and assign floor(hours / 240) points at the end of the year. I don't know if I like that :\

That's probably even better. Nice and consistent.

I'm left with a question: if a pipsqueak collects enough hours to gain a point, and then more, should they carry any leftovers to the next race?

I'm leaving toward carrying hours only for those who did not get points, but I'm open to suggestions.

(Maybe I should clean it with hand fertilizer spray. At least 5 times.)

The virus should not survive more than 24h outside the body, so you could just wait... you'll still have time to submit a replay tomorrow :P

It was a good logo. I did not appreciate the team member(s) too much :-\

So there you are, new team created!

I'll need a logo for the team, that for historical reason should be 75x50 pixels.

Opening this to have a space to discuss teams for the new season!

KaoS and Stingray86 seem interested in starting one. Anyone else? :)

Damn, only 5 days left? I guess I have to leave out this race.

Not even a list-filler?

I predict a CTG list-filler would at least be on the podium ;D

No track thread yet? Where's everyone? :)

I like the fort shape, but I every shortcut I try in the pit gives me penalty. I wonder if Overdrijf is hiding something good... :P

Can I book 226 - May?
Have a great track ready!
How do I submit the track file?

Sure, May is yours!

For the track, I'll make a page where it can be submitted, so we solve the email problem :)

Uhm, with a small kid around, don't you need something more solid? :P

Slightly older Thinkpads are heavily discounted, and easy to maintain. For example T580.

I like the idea from the start of the season post to let unused leading hours carry over. That's probably the most realistic option to let LTB hours motivate everyone, if you get 3 days in several races you could still grab points eventually. I'm in favor.

I thought about this a bit more, and came up with these numbers:
- a 28-day race means 672 hours
- we have 12 races, so 8064 hours in a season
- in the existing system, we assign at most 3 LTB points per race, for a total of 36

We could change the system so that one LTB point is assigned as soon as a pipsqueak collects 8064/36 = 224 hours of leading time. We can round that to 240 hours, ten days, so that no-one can collect 3 points in the same race. At most, 33 LTB points will be assigned over the course of a year, with 144 hours left over.

An average of 20 hours per race are enough to collect an LTB point at the end of the season. With the existing system, most of the time, you would need multiple days, and a good amount of luck, across multiple races.

Collected points are carried over to the next race, even across season.

Comments? Graphs? Obvious pitfalls I have not considered?

It's really late tonight. Tomorrow, when I finish work, if nobody has yet posted the pictures, I'll make them :)

Sleep tight, Overdrijf helped :)

I'll start with these ideas:
- rotate the DTM cars, swapping the BMW for the Mercedes
- keep the SuperKart
- replace the Ford Ranger

Following the points above:
- BMW DTM is out, replaced by Mercedes-Benz DTM
- Ford Ranger is out, replaced by the Toyota Sprinter Trueno

Can anyone help with the side pictures for the two new cars? :)

List updated, thanks again everyone :)

Not sure why I forgot about 233... Maybe because 234 is such a great number ;D
