060512 MISSION DEBRIEFING

 

Present: Woodie, Canon, Parts, Fred, Tone.
V8 Supercars 3 was played all night!!

We squeezed in a record ammount of racing, with some very close & contentious outcomes and some heated debates during breaks. Seems everyone has a different opinion on how games should be hosted, in regard to collision, damage, race length, pitstops, cars & tracks.
To be fair, I try to let anyone who wants to host races host them, which gives everyone a chance to have a few races how they like them set-up. This ads variety to the evening, and hopefully keeps most players happy.

Personally, I like longer races – You don’t see many (any) real-life races only lasting 3 laps! – 10-15 laps gives everyone a chance to settle in to the car/track combo. Tyre wear comes into play, upping the strategy aproach, as well as driver skill. With a mandatory pitstop, full damage & collision on & REVSERSE GRID starts, the pitstop becomes a tactic which can even things out, giving you a chance to fix any accumulated damage – or not. Over larger distances, everyone is likely to come unstuck at some stage. I prefer car setups on for improved handling, but understand closer racing can be had with them off, so generally mind neither way.

  1. Alleged Blocking Tactic!
     

    For the record:–I never intentionally "blocked" anybody. The way I saw it, I was in front and was looking for the best entry, apex and exit for any given corner and had the right of way. When negotiating any corner, I doubt there would be a gamer alive who drives in, hits the apex and drives out again with their eyes glued to their rear view mirror just in case someone is trying to sneak up the inside. Looking at it from my point of view, others were trying to stuff it up the inside and got caught short because they had a poor racing line. If you want to pass someone, you have to make it happen, they’re not just going to get out of your way–you have to go around them (or through them in some cases). . . though I did let Fred and others pass me doing the oval tracks (where’s my medal) as in some places they were carrying a lot more speed out of some corners than me and ovals aren’t that demanding in the concentration department so you have more time to check who’s coming up behind you.
    I was also on the receiving end of some rough treatment whilst trying to pass "said accuser" on a long straight after slipstreaming and pulling out to overtake, found myself being rudely sideswiped into the wall with the words "that was payback" being muttered. I doubt the marshalls would let him get away with that on a real race track. I also found that most of the other drivers behaved exactly the same way through corners as everyone else–i.e. out wide on the approach, wash off speed, look for your apex,  turn in, gas on, power out. If you’re stuffing it up the inside–that’s your look out. So where this blocking tactic comes from is a bit beyond me. I won’t say I’m not guilty of the odd lapse in concentration resulting in a shunt or two causing the odd venture into the kitty litter, but where I deem it my fault I slow down to allow the "aggrieved" driver back past me. (this did occur on Friday. . .sorry Woodie!) On the other hand, I have also been on the receiving end of the odd bump whilst braking into corners and finished up in the scenery with jam sandwiches and thermos in hand. . . but at least I don’t go looking to pay them back for their indiscretion. If you cop a bump shut up and get on with it. We’ve all been there and I’m as guilty as the next guy but I don’t do it on purpose.
    Moans aside, I thought Friday was an excellent night and I feel I put in my best ever performance on the track at the enclave. Some others would disagree no doubt! And I’m not looking forward to being relegated to an also-ran when Woodie gets back up to speed with his wheel and the indomitable Darklord returns! I’m thoroughly looking forward to my next "approved" foray into the world of Edge Entertainment. A good mix of serious stuff and light-hearted fun with Tone being given the title of "Clown for a Day".
    Quote of the night:–"She was the first white woman I’d seen in two years".

  2. Scored another cool quote courtesy of American Dad:–
     
    "Francine, I already live with something soft and girly . . . It’s called Roger"
