Quote from: dreadnaut on October 16, 2021, 12:41:32 AMSome thoughts before heading to sleep:Cars are going to be tricky! Thanks to Ryoma, but not only, there is suddenly a bunch of new cars. Most of them are "untested" in a racing situation though, and we don't know if they have any peculiar and interesting traits. We'll need a short-list if we want to consider any for the next season. Note that I don't plan to increase the number of total cars, or the proportion of custom cars. Revised Melange in for sure!
QuoteAmateur league: we'll continue this experiment until the end of the 2021, but in early December we'll have to decide if we want to make it "official" and code it into the website. See specific thread.
QuoteTrack ratings: track scores for 2021 will become visible at the end of the season, giving us the Track of Year; I don't know if there'll be time to revise the system, so it's likely to continue as it is for 2022. We can improve it for 2023 if needed.
QuoteGAR: my idea at the moment is to phase out GAR for 2022, and replace it with a more relaxed OWOOT tag, which allows replay handling. GAR could be back in 2023, or not, we'll see next year.
QuoteTeams: we discussed some changes earlier this year, but didn't get very far; feels like to much stuff on the plate now that we are planning the Amateur league, but I'd like to keep that discussion going.
Quote from: afullo on October 16, 2021, 07:35:59 PMI have been played since February 2014, seriously the first year, less seriously during 2015-2017, and again seriously from 2018 onwards. Nonetheless, Ryoma is able to place himself ahead of me, probably with statistical significance, when he plays at his best. In light of this, since he defines himself an amateur, have I to be considered an amateur too, or not?
Quote from: Duplode on October 16, 2021, 11:50:13 PMwe might want to think of a less loaded name than "Amateur".

Quote from: Duplode on October 16, 2021, 11:50:13 PMA wildcard slot -- almost anything could work here; I lean towards either something from the Lotus/911 Turbo/Skyline bracket or, if we end up with too many slow cars, the McLaren MP4/4.
Quote from: Daniel3D on October 17, 2021, 10:39:38 AMMaybe a simple rule set. Not to heavy."FTR" competition. (No reference to skills)Follow the road.- Allows off road as long as it's within reason.NoRH but CR (crash recovery) allowed.I know that the rules are a bit vague.Just an example of a idea.Sort of a middle ground between freestyle and owoot.
Quote from: Overdrijf on October 17, 2021, 01:28:21 PMThat does feel a little bit... open to abuse? Something in that direction?
QuoteFor those who have joined recently, and anyone who prefers to race in a more relaxed way
Quote from: KyLiE on October 16, 2021, 04:18:19 AMIn the next few months, I plan to thoroughly review and test each of Ryoma's cars to determine their suitability for use in competitions. If you're interested, I can share my findings with you.
Quote from: alanrotoi on October 16, 2021, 01:47:29 PMI remember the section time analysis was a big success between pipsqueaks. Is it easier to make it manually or is it possible to make it automatic?
Quote from: afullo on October 16, 2021, 07:35:59 PMUnfortunately I generally forgot to rate tracks, so I will be probably able to say something not before the next year.
Quote from: Daniel3D on October 17, 2021, 07:53:03 PMIt does. But then the same can be said about gar and owoot.
