The track is ready! Now I'll check the replays, decide on bonus adjustments, and complete the update...
I finished 2nd of the newbies League face to people who is not newbies.... For this race I spent a lot of time. You can count my replay which represent a third that I do for this race. During this period, I did not made any car.... All these sacrifice to have an unfair 2nd place. Now it's easy, I would come back with another pseudo...and at one moment win the race .... But I prefered stop this ..and maybe erase my méga and do anything else.
You finished 6th out of all 21 racers, new to super experienced, in ZCT238. If those kinds of results aren't good enough to keep you motivated you may in fact be too competitive for joining competitions. I don't really know what else to tell you. If instead of the newbie league we had a system of tiered scoreboards where you compete against people of similar skill someone with results like that on their resume would be racing in (something like maybe) the silver league. You would still be compared to some pretty strong racers. Yes, KyliE would (could, might) have bneen promoted to gold league with his third place finish in ZCT239, and Zapper would have joined him with the second place one race later. Is that the difference you're going for? The super league (Stunts Wiki: List_of_ZakStunts_race_winners ) would all be people who aren't elligible for the newbie league anyway. You know what, my whining might be on to something here. We could try marking racer's names on the scoreboard for "has won a race before" (super league, or wait, do we need an ultra tier for season winners?), "has placed on the podium before" (gold league), "has finished in the upper one third of the board before" (silver league) and "everyone else" (bronze league, or do we need another distinction within this one?). That might actually help newer drivers judge who they should see as their competition quicker. KyLiE would have won gold league this round and Heretic would have been this month's silver league winner, as an example. And I think Cas would have won bronze league, but I did not check all his results for whether they fell on the top 1/3 of the board or not. It might also chase people away because it smells like elitism though... Another alternative might be that you always start in the lowest league and are promoted based on internal end of the year results, but that honestly sounds like it has too many moving parts.
@dreadnaut I said 2 months ago that I'm not happy with the définition of newbies. Until a change, I don't want to participate...ok I will finish 3rd...what a challenge !!! I want to challenge people of my level...and maybe after the next level...
The results in newbies league since 2 races proves that I'm right....
Yes! Someone did find a way to jump from the final cork back onto the mainland! Thanks Alan, nice run! I didn't design this track with powergear in mind, but from the moment you posted that first run it seemed something like this was going to be the winning replay. (Although I honestly didn't know if someone might be able to get the Corvette into powergear to beat out the Acura.) The short powergear run in the first section is a nice bonus on top.
Again only 2 people close the newbies League.....
Okay, let's reveal the quiet replays! (The full update will happen as soon as I have my track ready to go, which should be before noon if all goes to plan )
You're right, it lost out narrowly on both 225 and 241. We quite possibly only still have a few months to fix that. (Or write the fact onto the wiki.)
Mercedes DTM is the only car used in zakstunts that never had a 1st place according to the Car podium stats.
