Ok all ya DTR2 Fanatics....ya know who ya are...league racers,browser racers,real racers,forum racers,race freaks and gamers,crack heads,potheads,shitheads and drunks lol! Were gonna try something here just for shits n giggles and see if we can have some fun with it! No BS! No Drama! Just a good time for all! Since I know there are some of ya around that are night owls were gonna give ya somethin to do every night at the stroke of midnight.
Enlight of the recent controversies during our DTR2 league events were going to try and use this format as a way to try and experment with some new ideas. For example: No Restarts! No Cautions! We come to race...so were gonna race! As you all know when you race in the DTR2 browser you do not get to restart! You also do not get any cautions! Hell ya dont even get any hot laps! You do not get to swap positions after the race has finished! Your finish position is what the server tells you it is when the results are presented after the race! The only thing you do get to do other than race is say...uh sorry man! and na no problem!...or maybe bitch n moan! (Hopefully we aint gonna be doin that!) Ya know if ya think about it most of the time in the browser the same amount of cars that start the race usually finish it! Yea sometimes theres some DNF''s but thats usually due to someone X'n out before the finish of the race. Its been my experience that if you have a wreck or spin on the start if you hurry your ass up and get going back in the right direction theres a damn good chance you'll still get a good finish.Hell I can even remember getting spun in the 1st corner before and actually making a comeback to win the freakin race! I'm sure some of you have had that same experience. Sometimes if your consistant and just keep going chances are the ones in front of you might have an issue that allows you to take advantage.The thing is just don't give up! Just because you have a bad moment is no reason to throw in the towell! Also getting pissed off at your friends because your game didnt play out the way you hoped is BS! Theres going to be contact,thats a given,get used to it! Intentional or deliberite contact is akin to anger provoked road rage and has no place in our game! PERIOD! It should'nt be tolerated,not in the browser and certianly not in the leagues! If you can't control your temper in a damn online game then I would suggest you seek some proffesional help! With that being said let it be a warning that it will NOT be tolerated here! Were gonna do this to have fun and I wont hesitate for a second to ban your IP from my servers and vents if your taking the fun out of someone elses game! I can get along with any one and I'm a very easy going guy as are most of the people playing this game.Theres a lot of good people here,I think a lot of you guys and am damn glad I have ya'll around to game with.I'm just trying to help us all have fun so please lets have fun!
Now Iets cover just a couple more things real quik,so everyone will be up to speed on what were doing here:
First and formost were gonna do this every night at midnight! Mainly since nothins going on with any of the leagues at this time and some folks are still up and like to race! Maybe we'll get 10 cars maybe we wont.But we'll try! Would be nice to have a full field for the "A" mains.
Were going to be using the SUPR Late Models BLS_F1yer made,manual or auto its up to you. These cars auto trans have shift points that are equal to the shift points you should use if you were using manual.They are fast and they have great handling charactaristics.Your G3 n G5 skins will transfer to the SUPR's.So if ya dont have a SUPR skin there are several people in the game that I'm sure will be more than happy to help ya out with a transfer or possibly a new skin if ya just ask them.
This is going to get challenging and very interesting as we are going to be using a different track each night.I will be choosing the track for the inaugural (1st) race.I am also going to predict the winner of the Feature at intermission (break before Feature),if I am correct I will be choosing the track for the next night,If I am not then the feature winner will get to choose,however if he wins on the track he chose he will not choose again,I will,and again I will make a prediction and the process will start over. If he looses whoever wins will choose but if he wins I will choose again.This process will repeat itself and this will be how the track for each night will be chosen. Instead of me creating a track schedule this will add a little suspense and hopefully a chance to race some tracks that we dont get to see too often.There are well over 800 tracks in this game so the track for any given night could be any one of them.Any that are compatable that is.
Points are explained on the results/points page.We made some changes from what we originaly was going to do,but I think you'll find it is a very fair point system.
This is going to start the 1st week of March 2012, stay tuned for exact date and time.I am not finished here and this is just a rough draft so if any one has any ideas or suggestions to incorporate into what we are attempting to do here we would love to here them. Please use the forum under DTR2 Nation on the home page to offer up any suggestions or ideas you may have. Thank You n God Bless!
C-Ya at the Races!
