    I'm hoping this takes off too. Any chance you want to take the lead on it? Doesn't have to be anything too involved. In fact, doesn't even have to be every Monday (possibly just once or twice a month if that's all you want to do).

    You'll want to make sure Vol sees this. He's the resident parity master around here. :)

    Sorry for being a bit late replying to this topic, but I wanted to get a good look at the upcoming calendar. Now that I've had a chance to do that, I really don't think we'll have to worry about how to handle months with five Sundays.

    Here's a tentative schedule from now though 2013. I've basically divided the year into 4-week seasons. The months that have five Sundays either include a week that won't have an official league night, or have one of their Sundays "borrowed" by another month. Let me know what you guys think:

    October 2012 Season

    League Night #3 - October 21st

    September 1st - league night will be cancelled due to Labor Day weekend
    League Night #1 - September 8th
    League Night #2 - September 15th
    League Night #3 - September 22th
    League Night #4 - September 29th

    October 2013 Season
    League Night #1 - October 6th
    League Night #2 - October 13th
    League Night #3 - October 20th
    League Night #4 - October 27th

    November 2013 Season
    League Night #1 - November 3rd
    League Night #2 - November 10th

    December 2013 Season
    League Night #1 - December 1st (last league night with GT5)
    December 8th - league night will be cancelled in favor of GT6 testing session
    League Night #2 - December 15th (first league night with GT6)
    League Night #3 - December 22nd
    League Night #4 - December 29th

    As always, only the top three scores for each driver will count in any given season. Therefore, drivers can miss 25% of league nights and still be in the mix for their divisional championship if they perform well on the nights that they show up. Of course, that's for those who care about that kind of thing. Rest assured, promotion and relegation is not determined solely by how many points you have at the end of a season.

    I think renaming D1 to D51 would be kinda funny so I say go for it. Ever since GT Academy I'm apparently an alien these days along with a few of you other guys lol.

    And for manual Mondays I say lets get something going! Possibly follow previous week track/car combo? Just manual?

    Just to clarify, there is absolutely no adjustments of any kind to any car. Correct? Other than using correct tires.

    You'll want to "break in" the car for maximum HP by driving it about 200 miles. And you can adjust brake balance. That's it.

    Oh, and of course you can change rims and paint it.

    That looks like it works surprisingly well, zer0. Though I'd say that canceling the races on Easter seems more likely/important than canceling them two or three days prior to Christmas.

    What's going on with tutoring? Is anyone available to give some pointers and tips on the Sunday combos?

    I think there are several benefits of running Manual Mondays with the same combos from Sunday night. First of all, there wouldn't be any kind of practice necessary and everyone would at least know what gear they "should" be in at all times. It'd also allow us to compare our "paddle" times to our "manual" times to see how much time we're losing (and thus how much we could improve on driving completely manual). And finally, it would keep organization and coordination efforts to a minimum.

    Of course the downside is that we'd be racing the same combos that we did just 24 hours earlier. :lol:

    PM Hillracing and he will help you.

    We could still use the help of a friendly snailian or two for holding a weekly practice for us slower guys. We need the return of "Tutoring Thursdays".

    It means that any penalties you might get next week will be doubled.

    Good stuff, I can walk you through the steps, it's not that big a deal and if you have the replays already, only takes a half hour :tup:

    Did you calibrate it on a PC with Fanatec's setup/calibration app?

    EDIT: Inside Sim Racing Calibration Guide

    I have three votes for, zer0 and I will be meeting this week, will make a decision then :)

    1 week probation means for the week you're on probation, any penalty you receive will be doubled. If you receive a penalty while on probation, the probation periods remains. If you go penalty free that week, you are no longer on probation.

    Not sure renaming D1 is a good idea. It only "alienates" that group from the rest. Yuk Yuk.

    Honestly the are several drivers from other divisions that I'm sure would not finish last on any given night in D1. So renaming it I feel kinda separates that division from the rest when they are just people on a PS3 like everyone else. It almost makes it seem like graduating from a lower division to D1 is impossible...how does one go from regular driver to "Alien"?

    To simplify...renaming it almost makes it seem unattainable to everyone else.

    Good point right here :tup: and I'd add that renaming wouldn't fit with the actual seriousnesssss of the league (thats my pov).
    Stick to what made your success and innovate when the time's right, keep in mind the league's initial vision.

    I actually was going to suggest that last night in my post. ;) thought maybe it would be to much of the same for some. I'm liking the idea.


    I'm all for using a car we know some what well. We have a lot at the helm with banging and racing.

    I think Division 51 might work best as a joke but maybe not an official rename since there seems to be a few people against it. That's just my $0.02.

    That works. Personally, I think it's funny but in the interest of keeping everyone happy that might be best.

    Yes, congrats to Sandblazter for winning D5! I've update the results post from Sunday night to reflect the changes in position after penalties were applied.

    As always, thanks to the stewards for taking the time to review all of the racing complaints! You have the entire league's gratitude for keeping our league as clean and enjoyable as possible! :bowdown:

    I'm interested to see if I got promoted or staying in D3 :tup:

    If I happen to get promoted, can I just stay in D3? I won't be online for 7 weeks and will come back rusty :O

    I doubt you'll stay in D3 even with a 7-week break. It'd be one thing if you were "on the fence", but you won D3 outright and had a dominating eight 1st place finishes during the month. I'll post the monthly championship results shortly so you can see what I mean. :)

    That's why I was so concerned with not being there the first week and having a bad showing the first week I participated b/c I accidentally brought the wrong Aston to Monza. I didn't get any points for the first race and it killed me for the night.

    GT5 should introduce ebikes. I currently borrowing my buddies ecoped city 45 and that thing is a blast to drive around town! 32km/h here and there. Never owned any ATV's or Skidoos in my childhood so I'm pretty excited about it. Would probably be more entertaining then the electric cars we have in game ;).
