Cars and rules for 2016
« on: December 09, 2015, 12:29:14 PM »
Starting this thread a bit later than usual, so quick feedback is welcome.

Cars:
Xylocaine and Speedgate out for sure. Prefer to keep the Melange and the F40, unsure about the Porsche 911
Which ones should be the replacement cars? I would opt for a best-of from the past years, including only cars with proven realistic and bug-free behavior.

Rules:

I did not plan any rule changes. The 14-days public replay rule seems to be a success and needs no adjustment. However, I am open for any recommendations.

Schedule:
one month or 4 weeks intervals?

To elaborate more on cars, my view is as folows:

Proven to be working, welcome anytime:
Nissan skyline
Lotus esprit turbo
Ferrari f40
Melange

Unsure:
Mclaren F1 - there seems to be a generic dislike for this car
lwt zr1 gt3 - not custom enough
porsche 911 turbo - not custom enough

Tested as a competition car, not to be considered:
Speedgate
Ford ranger
Superkart
Xylocaine xf

Untested:
toyota corolla / sprinter - likely both too slow to be considered as a proper competition car
ikarus 260 - definitely too slow to be considered

Keep Melange


Enter Skyline and make some tests with Corolla.


I liked Ranger to do a double with LM

My take on cars is similar to Zak's: Speedgate and Xylocaine out, Melange and F40 kept, on the fence about 911 Turbo -- I would kind of like to see it being given a chance, but I haven't tried it enough to have a clear idea of whether it is an interesting car to drive. No settled opinion on cars to be brought back either. As for the other issues, I like the predictability of the 4-week schedule.

Quote from: dstien at the shoutbox
Thanks to Leo for reminding me about the deadlines. Hope next season's rounds will be aligned with the Gregorian calendar again. :D

That is a valid point of view as well, though -- it sounds not unlike the trouble I had in keeping track of LOL Classics deadlines.

Another issue worth settling IMO is that of tiebreakers. Following Zak, I suggest resolving draws through the number of victories (and then of second places  etc.).

All tracks released on schedule, 12 pipsqueaks per track, at least 8 pipsqueaks active throughout the entire season and a battle similar to 2015.
