I have to agree with Alain on this point!
Most voters don't really vote the track but vote with other purposes in mind!
Example 1)CTG's bad everglade vote as that track was on of the main contenders with CTG's track for the first place.That was before I voted for CTG's track *g*
2)Akoss Poo and CTG seem to give each other good votes,or at least no bad votes on every track wheter it's good or bad
3)All those people giving their own tracks to high marks which are really out of place,I have to confess I belonged to that group also
4)the problem alain described
5)Why does goal has so many 3's in design? while other tracks which sure look more interesting often only have 2's? sorry that's inconsistent
6)How can a 0/8/15 design as Alford get 5!!! design points? come on and compare it to those tracks with really good design! alford's scnerery is average at best.
7)Someone sees a track he thinks is average got one of the top places.Though he would have originaly have given it an average vote he gives it a very crap vote to drag it to the average place he thinks it belongs to.
8)To many tracks have the same feeling:Some hills,some water a lot of trees and houses.Now what next?
Oh yes we need a track! Let's use some curves and jumps... oh hmm something is missing! What? Ah yes! Let's place some boulevards corks and loops.But not more than 2 in a row.Let's scatter them around the track.
Most of those tracks are boring as hell and easy enough for live racing!Now is that a live racing contest?
Now who is the best voter?The one who gives 5's to every track? NO! the one who gives 1's to every track? NO! actually after all tracks have been voted on the average vote of a voter should be close to 3 as that is supposed to be an average vote.Good tracks deserve better votes and bad tracks worse votes of course!
Alan rotoi: 3.78! fun average even 4! Now does he like to race on every track wheter good or bad? Does he just like the game?That's nice but why does he vote at all then.Go race the default tracks then!
Satanziege:3.31 At least that's somewhere close to 3.0.But really: OH that was to hard for me... and that was work also.... Why don't you just race the default track against bernie if every hard track (those for real pipsqueaks) is nothing for you?
Mingva:3.27 Close to 3.0 at least but: Face it your taste is really good described by point 8. Let's build some nice terrain.Build a track which is very fluent to race,put some random track elemements.And ready is the mingi track?What's about creativity ? No that does not count.Go race bernie's.
Argammon,Alain: The only drivers with an average vote below 3.0!
Alain does not seem to like close to any track for competitions! average vote 2!Do we agree with him that most of the tracks fit the point
description or isn't he satisfied with anything?
What's about Argy?He does not like close to any track's design?Does he think he can do better?Does he has to give 1's to every track w/o scnenery.The stunts contest is not an art contest but a contest to make a good track for a RACING game.Keep that in mind Arg.
Akoss,CTG,Krys: Competition rating is far to high.Or do you like to compete at any track thrown at you?
Read this rant with some
in your memory while doing so.But even though the rant exaggerates big time,don't you think there is some truth behind it?
