Quote from: Krys TOFF on May 06, 2008, 09:10:09 AMOne limitation of quality points is that 90% of JACStunts pipsqueaks don't race any other competition, so they will never get well ranked and so JACStunts will remain anecdotic compared to other competitions...
Quote from: BonzaiJoe on May 06, 2008, 11:57:26 PMSome kind of measure has to be taken towards the amount of pipsqueaks in a competition. When I made a Worldranklist really long ago, I simply rated the competitions like in tennis or cycling, based on participants, race frequency and replay strength, and used the ratings as multiplication factors.

Rivers on May 07, 2008, 08:38:02 AMMy thoughts is that the only contests can be join for a unique global rank are Zak's Stunts and WSC.One of them is with IRC rules and the other no, but I see both as two multiformity of a single specialty, that is RH mode. Even if IRC rules don't permit flying, drivers have to race in the similar way, trying and re-trying in every point of the tracks to make the desired paths. NORH races is all another story, another kind of race, and I think it's not comparable wiht RH races. As I said more than one time, NORH races need to manage emotions and risk, need firm nerves and the ability to drive almost perfectly from the beginning to the end, so even for 90" consecutively.

I don't want to hurt anyone with my declaration, but, about this point there's an abyss between FTT and JacStunts. If we assume JacStunts' replays reliable as FTT's replays, then Krys could eliminate the rule that demand to the drivers to send the video. But I think that rule has a good reason to be active. Not for all drivers but sure for someone, above all if there would be a world rank that could stimulate dreams of glory. That rule has contributed to rescue a forgotten wonderful specialty, and we need that rule to preserve it,avoiding every kind of compliants that could damage the right atmosphere we are inspiring.
