What do you have your FFB on, Mike? I play in the wee hours under my sleeping family with headphones on - FFB on 3
I would really like to! , but from what i understand, the event is at
22h here tomorow, and the neighbor(spelling?) under my appartment would not like me driving that late with the G27, they can hear the force feedback kick-in, and walls are really thin id need to use headphone, i cant join unfortunatly.
But if you guys practice tonight, in the next hour or 2, i can try to join!
Right, we have two races every Wednesday at 3:00 PM and 10:00 PM Eastern. I don't know if anyone will be around practicing as there was a pretty long practice session earlier today already, but watch the online event thread and see if anyone posts.
Just about to open the room for practice now 👍
Sweet!, i will join, i dont have a mic though, you would not understand a word of my english anyway
Yes i speak french, i understand most part of english if not too fast.
Close finish there Matthew, just a couple of tenths over 7 minutes .
Wow, last in the handicap, I don't know what I didn't know about this combo. Great job to all those who had a clue. wow
I feel your pain Lefty. Does this have anything to do with an over achiever in our division? I don't know how this handicap thing works...
As far as I am able to observe (with no direct knowledge of the internals), no. Your handicap does not directly depend on any single competitor, and the maths don't "see" anyone's division at all (the Vaxen behind the curtain does, but he also has more than enough experience to tell what an outlier looks like). A div 3 or even div 5 could in theory win the overall event with a stunning time, but that would only affect your handicap very slightly if you still did well amongst everyone else.
So, it is not so much to do with how any individual in your division did as how everyone did (all divisions), and how you fared there - ignoring fine tuning, it's all about mean and standard deviation. That's how you get placed in a division in the first place, via the qualifier. Each event is like its own qualifier - the event handicap change figure is effectively the difference between how you would have been placed if only the current event had ever been run, compared to how you've done in the past over time (all of them added up and averaged*).
Someone let me know if I'm off base or even explaining badly; this is opinion based on what has been made known in the past and what I've seen.
*Weighted, and pretty nice about it.
NOTE that Vaxen has updated the OP to include GTP_DOUG and GTP_CargoRatt.
Mitch, your replay is requested.
