  • The MP4-X missed out on having it's boards moved to project page hence propose a fresh new set for the car.

    I'd like to get numbers in to find out if it's really going to be worth doing. Also we can use this thread to discuss any future events.

    For example a weekly rotation event where 1st place on board picks the next event or selection for event & players vote for which they would prefer.

    Feel free to give any input to what you would like to see in terms of community competitions.

    • Bring on the weekly challenge thread!  The leaderboard project pages have been a total failure.

    • I’d like to get some competitions/leaderboards going for sure, and MP4-X, as the apex car of the game, is a favorite. With a few exceptions (like the farming races), participation was never all that strong. In that Mt Pan race I posted, I was already in the top spot - I was racing myself and trying to break 12:00. #2 was GizmOh and he set that about 2 years ago. So expectations should be low for anything new.

      There’s quite healthy participation in the new weekly WTTT thread, and a bunch of hot shoes competing. The new format means everyone is focused on the same thing. Plus it pays GC, of course. I think the best shot is one more additional weekly challenge, with user generated content. I like leaderboards, but with 200+ cars and 40+ tracks/configurations, It’s real hard to get enough people focused on the same events.

      For the MP4-X, I leave you with this, a product of ~10min last night and 90min tonight (home alone on a Friday, a rarity).

    • I suggest posting a new thread on the main board about a weekly challenge. I don’t think the likely players are seeing this thread over here.

    • I don't think there's enough interest to warrant the effort of typing out another thread let alone creating a weekly challenge.

      We'd be better off running it in private on Facebook or Hangouts since it's only us 3 who are game to enjoy a game.

    • I would like a try if you post it somewhere I can participate.

      Let me try to give it a go.  I'll post something later today...

    • Great run SM! Not easy to control that beast around that track. I don’t think I’m up for a tt right now, though. Wttt is stressful enough at the moment!

      Do it!  I don't doubt you can, but it's gonna make you work.  That was a real hero run, one of those 'put down the phone, that's the one, no use trying to even match it again' kinda runs.

      While you're at it, go for that whole set.  You'll see me #30, 1:00.888 (0.998 off leader) at Monza, and #20, 0:23.130 (0.179 off leader) at Brands Hatch.  About on hour each this weekend.  I'm leaving a bit on the table at Monza, although I'm done with it, but Brands Hatch was another hero run.

    • OK, posted on main board, I want to see you guys participate!!

      Quick event, multiple cars eligible including everyone's favorite P1 GTR, and a track with no major cuts available.

    • I made some quick runs at Bridge, .8 behind you. You lost me at the right hander that heads to GP start/finish. Not bad for minimal attempts. The grip on this car always amazes me. However, when you get too confident in the grip and really push you go for some BIG slides. I’ll try to carve out some time to make all the runs.

    • G’hamO, your weekly challenge idea is a hit! We’ll do an MP4-X event at some point, but waiting until after the LTS makes sense for that one. The concept of the weekly is getting buy-in with the good cheaper cars, so we can take that momentum up to the Apex cars at appropriate times.

    • Does seem to be getting popular, I guess since it's the low-end cars people are interested (because they're cheap to upgrade) I'd bet that if a high end motor was picked the numbers would drop. 

      I'll be back in the McLaren soon, the high downforce cars are fun (to me) I know not everyone likes them but that's the joy of choice we all have in this game.
