EU Have Your Say - GSC Race Club Changes

    Hi all,

    So, there's some changes happening to the GSC club I want to lay out for you all.

    First of all, we're reducing the number of events per week to 3. This is to ensure grids are better filled, not only on GSC, but on other games too. If we see the 3 events aren't enough and we have enough demand I can always add more. This is also to stop people jumping around back and forth between events; we won't have two events of the same cars on any night.

    Main events will take place on Monday, Wednesday, and either Friday or Saturday.

    So, why Friday or Saturday? It's a two week, alternating event. One week we'll run a GT Endurance on Saturday, and the next week we'll run an event on Friday. This is so that clubs like Rf2 can run their own GT events too (so basically we rotate between us). You'll still get a GT event every week.

    Show you support for the other clubs when we don't race in GSC! Hopefully players of other games will likewise support us.

    Any feedback or suggestions for your race club is welcome in this thread. I've already mixed up the two Camaro's on one night, or Mini and Opala same night, in order for everyone to get to use the cars they like. Just remember that even when we run the cars you like a little less, it's a good idea to support the race clubs.

    Here's the plan for the next two weeks just to be clear:

    Mon 24th - Mini, Opala 2x20
    Wed 26th- F3, FClassic 2x20
    Sat 29th - GT Endurance 1x80
    Track: Greenwood Roadway Zolder

    Mon 31st - Camaro SS, Camaro 1968 2x20
    Wed 2nd - GT Sprint Ford GT Vs Corvette 2x20
    Fri 4th - V8 2x20
    Track: Mosport

    As you see you still get GT cars each week, and you can still get an endurance race on other games like rF2. And well, we'll see how this goes.

    I like it too. I think this is a better system.
    We still have great events without having to do them everyday, which can be difficult for some due to various reasons.
    Even better, allow us to better manage club races from other games.

    I can see where you guys are coming from, for me it's not the case I can do other sims because I don't have them yet (only AC and GSC). For myself I would have liked an endurance race every week (maybe one week friday and other week saturday) but I can see why this can make the racing better.
     
  5. I can do only do Saturdays. (And weekends)

    No worries - there are other sims as noted to fill the void. Best success with GSC Races!!

    There's nothing to stop us having an endurance race Fridays too.

  7. I really like this plan, and teaming similar cars on the same day is good.

    I also like the idea of an endurance race every week once on Friday once on Saturday.

    And yes there shouldn't be an event like everyday. 3 times per week seems the best way to go

    The more people sound their opinions the merrier

    I do think we have some drivers here who need to get up early.
    If we start race 1 one hour earlier, maybe more drivers will stay for race 2. On a day without Formula Classic, as these seem to make drivers run away.
    I know I'm not the one with the most important voice here, as I only join occasionally. Still wanted to say this.

    I'm glad to see there are still some Fridays races for me without endurance.
    Mini Friday in Race07 runs the same 80 minutes long. And I never had fun in endurance.

    I agree and I don˙t know, why some time ago race became races with two different cars. By my opinion, one 25 - 30 minutes race, as it was in the past, would be just great. But that is just my loud thought and I am sure, staff know what they are doing :thumbsup:.

    Based on your feedback, here's what I am going to do and see how it goes. Please let me know if this works (I can't give everyone what they want, this is as close as I can get it). If in a few weeks we need to adjust, we can, but let's see how this goes.

    Week A
    Monday and Wednesday events rotate
    Sat - Always GT Endurance

    Week B
    Mon, Wed, Fri events rotate, 1 day guaranteed to be GT Sprint or GT Endurance.

    And occasionally I'll try a special event on a Sunday or something (ideas welcome, PM me). In fact, feel free to PM me any ideas, tracks, etc you would like to see. I won't guarantee everything (there are considerations to bear in mind), but I guarantee I'll take a good look at every suggestion.

    I am grouping 2 different cars in each event normally to try and run everything - we have to be picky with only 2 days to run non-GT stuff a week. And soon we'll have more content when Reiza releases their DLC (prototypes anyone? :geek:)

    So, do your part! Keep on supporting the club, even if there's an event that maybe you're a little less fussed with. This way, we can get bigger grids. It takes time and effort and behind the scenes work to make the schedule. If, for example, the GT Endurance grids get too small we'll have to think about scrapping it. So, support the club, get on the grids, and we can try and cater for all. We also need to bear in mind that we cater for all skill levels, some people run as soon as they see a Formula Reiza!

    Maybe an idea for a reverse grid. I know if you reverse the whole grid faster drivers form the back cause more incidents trying to pass the field. Why not just reverse the top 5 on some nights? that might give some close racing.
