    Welcome to the GT3 World Tier Championship Series



    Okay guys, i'm trying to get a Series going for Project Cars. It will be just, GT3 Cars. This will take place on the PS4. There will be 3 tiers of Driving skills. The Tiers help the avg Racer, a change at winning and a possible Tier Championship. Also, there will be Teams involved for this Series. The 3 tiers are GT PRO, GT SEMI PRO and GT AM. When the game comes out May 5th. There will be a Team of 3, in all three tiers.I will hold Qualifying to get your time. Your time you Qualify with, will put you in that tier of your Driving Skill. No one will know the track or car for Qualifying. That'll be selected the day of qualifying. To give everyone an even playing field. The Races will be Sundays at 2pm est..

    Let's talk a little more about the 3 Tiers. In each Tier, i want at least 12 Drivers in each Tier. We get more interested, more spots will open up. I'm looking to get, 36 interested Drivers for the 3 Tiers. Each Tier will have 3 Drivers from each other. No Drivers will be split up. That's why i need 3 Room Hosts and 3 backup Hosts. Each skill Tier will have it's own individual Point Standings. The Team Point Standing, will be judged by Points of how your 3 Teammates did in the Race that Weekend. It's shaping up, and looking like a great Series. We just need, to fill the slots. LETS GO RACING GUYS!!!

    I'll be looking for people to race with. I hope to find some good racers who don't mind that I will be using the DS4.

    Yeah, I'm looking for someone to race with on XB1 and maybe PC. Not going to be playing that much and I'm not that fast, but I usually drive fairly.

    I'm in a clan and hope that the clan support for the game is enough that we can have our own clan league but if not I'll be looking out for leagues as my interest in this game is probably higher than anybody in my clan. I'm on XB1 so we'll see. The XB1 seems to be the device with the lowest amount of people that will be playing so I'm not sure how it will all pan out.

    There's probably more XBOne owners going to pick up pCARS than you think, they're probably just not as amped about it as PS4 owners as they already have Forza to play whereas PS4 hasn't really anything close to pCARS yet (DC doesn't cut it) so they are chomping at the bit for it a lot more.

    The fact that xbone actually HAD a racer is the primary reason I chose it over the ps4. :)

    The CRAP group that started on GT5 and currently races in GT6 will be setting up a Project Cars group for organising races on PS4.

    It will mostly be a good variety of events and cars so we can explore the game.

    CRAP prides itself on being both a welcoming place for those new to online racing as well as providing competitive fair racing for all levels of racers who might struggle to make exact race times due to work/family/life commitments.

    CRAP's GT6 events will continue.

    I own a PS4, Every one in my country and nearby country grown up with the playstation, hell even sometimes when i played wii or when one of my friends plays on his Xbox 360, people who usually over 45 years old says for example "he's playing on his playstation" which makes me want to face palm so hard.

    Anyway I'm not sure why everyone prefer XB1 Over other types of consoles.

    For example People thinks that the windows 8 and 8.1 is a massive failure and that it's sucks and yet people thinks that the Xbox one is a great console and that it has the best UI which is basically a Windows 8 UI :banghead:.

    What else?? Lower resolution with 720P that even ps3 exclusives has more with 1080P. Ps4 is more powerful than the Xbox one.

    Maybe because it's coming from the US and not from some asian countries...

    I don't hate XB1, i just don't understand how people are always into XB1 and there's no love for the PS4 and Wii U. What sadden me the most about the Xbox one is that for the PS4, we waited for almost a month (compare to Canada and US release date) for the ps4 to reach here while the Xbox one however we had to wait for 4th September of 2014 just for the Console to reach here. Call me crazy but the only real reason for me to buy the xbox is because of Forza, that's right it's because of forza not because of somethings like halo or other games, just Forza.

    The UI? I own windows 8.1 on my PC and i see not a problem with it.
    The gamepad? I think it's totally fine and is a change for the generic Controller that PS uses (i'm not talking about the DS4).

    The price for the xbox is higher than what i pay for my Playstation.

    I do want to get the Xbox but it's seems that the locals prefers the PS4 and that means i couldn't play with them. No one even knows the original xbox or game cube or dream cast because it's overshadowed by the playstation 2. It's still on sell over here!!! Almost everyone prefer PS4 so i had to choose the PS4.
    -----------------------------------------------
    anyway i just want to have fun in any sort of way on my ps4, long races, short one's...etc

    Considering we have a lot of attention here. I was thinking we can create a series. This series will be based off of skill alone. Have 3 tiers of Racing skills. The tiers would be Pro, Semi Pro and Am Pro. This would help keep everyone competitive and continue to Race. If anyone is interested in helping me build up this Series let me know. I'll be doing this on the ps4..

Hey Bethany Dawn, nice to see a lady wants to be on the team. Don't see that much here on the forums. I thinks it cool. Feel free to ad me to your psn.

    I can recommend my px4. It's not fully wireless and that's the only fault. Chat needs a cable. Besides that it's awesome.

    Any headset with a 3.5mm plug will work it will plug into the DS4. I just ordered a sony earbud with mic off of Amazon .
    Also the PS4 comes with a mono earbud with mic so in a pinch that can be used.

    and then after the series is over whoever wins the series will graduate to the next tier and whoever finishes last in the series will get demoted but they would have to run so many races to do so, unless we just re-qualify everyone again for the next series

    How long are you thinking of having the races? And what about weather? Personally I prefer longer races. When I played forza 3 and 4
    everyone set up 5 lap sprints. The tires were just getting warmed up.
