Season 3 Thoughts. Speak up!

Post by S7 Interseptor on Wed May 01, 2013 2:36 pm

With the new consoles set to come out later this year, we start looking towards our final season of Forza 4 Championship Series. Right now I am looking to start the final season sometime in late May/early June. So we are here once again to talk about the upcoming season and what, if anything we would like to see changed. So now is the time to chime in with things like:

Day of the week we should race?
Start time for events?
Overall schedule requests?
General Rules?
Points system?
Are you even interested in doing an official clean season?
Etc…

So speak up. Let’s get this thing settled and then I will post up a general announcement and schedule for Season 3 (the Final Season).

Day of the week we should race?
I still like Thursdays

Start time for events?
Later is better for me. 10EST is perfect.

General Rules?
Simulation Damage... maybe. (See Below)

Points system?
Same as we did last season?

Are you even interested in doing an official clean season?
YES!!!

Etc…
I was thinking MAYBE for our final season of Forza 4, we should change up our rules. I'm not sure what everyone else thinks but going Cosmetic damage - full contact might be interesting. I think having Ghosting on would help prevent any ridiculous/pointless hits.

I suggest this because I have always wanted to run a series that was no holds barred - all out, do whatever you can to win fast racing. No big bears or driving backwards, but if someone is ahead of you in a turn and you can spin them out to take the lead, go ahead.

I also think that a lot of our frustration during events come from accidental hits, car damage, etc. So rather than ending Forza 4 on an intense, super hardcore series, it might be nice to still be competing - but know full well that you're going to be slapping each other around (no homo).


What do you guys think?

I say wed thurs or fri. Start time of 9 or 10 est the first two weeks in August are out for me. I will be on vacation. Point system we used last time was good. Clean or dirty either is fine with me I have had a ton of fun wrecking people out in the late night series. But would be happy to get back to clean racing. F-S maybe with some themes to mix it up and keep things interesting.

I love a serious season. Its all about the racing. The gentlemen's race. No cheapshot spin outs or intentional bashing or pitting to get ahead. Those antics should be reserved for the Friday night bruiser series.
As for the details.

Day of the week we should race? Any night but Sunday night I'm good.

Start time for events? 8~9 central would be prime with the same no late start rules as last season. That helped to keep us from running till 12am.

Overall schedule requests? My work travel will be at an end after I land back home this Friday morning so I'm good for whenever we want to start.

General Rules? Clean, limited damage would be a little more forgiving I"m sure, but I prefer sim racing. Try this combo, 'limited/no damage' + C to R1 class and no Dick Dasterdly sh!t. Or season 1 and 2 rules.

Points system? Bring the point value down for the pole position wins. It should help prevent runaway scores.

Are you even interested in doing an official clean season? Hell to the fuggin yeah! When do we pop dem green flags?

As a side note, maybe we could spend a day or two discussing split class if there is enough interest.

I don't know about two man teams. You'd have to have a perfect attendence all season unless you want to ditch your teammate

Teams would be a blast but really probably aren't viable.

One thought.... do the tournament as normal, However;

Assign players to Red or Blue team. Have each players weekly points go towards the teams totals. That way aside from the individual stuff, there is a team tournament going on as-well.

What do you guys think?

I like this and splitting the racers between blue and red teams. Possibly find some way to handicap it if a player from one team or another isn't able to race so one team doesn't get screwed. I think a bit more on an example for this and try to post it up soon.

So the team handicap bit. We assign the red/blue team members at the beginning. Race day 1 lets say everyone is present and for the sake of argument, 4 members on each team. Race day 2 rolls around and only 3 blue team members can attend. At this point, a random member of the red team is selected whose 'team points' don't get added to the team score.

Maybe that will help spark some ideas.

I say we take the top points for members that show.

So if 10 people show, both teams get all 5 players points.

However if 9 people show, only the top 4 from each team get their points counted (from each race).

We just have to be careful about what team Wiggles gets put on. They'll have an instant-lock on 1st place if he can make it. Twisted Evil

I think Atrum's system should work pretty well. We gonna try and make some type of team paint schemes or something fun like that?

I bet we could make an emblem people can throw on their cars if they want to represent the team.

Red vs blue. How are we going to split up the teams? Captains picks or just as even as possible?

Look at class by class finishes from seasons 1 & 2 to get pairings and put one member on each team. For example, OC and I would be on different teams because we have similar skill levels and we tend to battle eachother every race.

Yeah, we all know generally where we finish and how we place. Shake-ups happen (ala Atrum suddenly stomping intereseptor in every race) but it should be fairly easy to make them close.
