It’s been a while guys! Hope everyone is enjoying the new game and getting to grips with it.
I suppose we better start thinking about the future of this league then..
A few months ago, I came up with a suggestion where we shorten the season length to around 13 races. The general impression was that the current number of 20 races was too long. Having 13 races means we can hold 3 seasons over the next 12 months (rather than just the two currently).
Everyone would get the opportunity to vote for their favourite circuits. Once the votes are counted, the top 8 or so would be used in every one of these three seasons. The remaining 5 races of each season would be filled with the circuits that remain. They would be spread so that over the course of the three seasons, each of these (least popular) tracks would be raced on at least once.
Here’s a quick Example..
Let’s say 8 popular races are:
Every season would have these eight races. The other circuits in each season could be..
I imagine a lot of the least popular circuits will be the so-called ‘Tilke Domes’. These tracks are quite similar so I don’t see it being a major problem if we only have one of each in every season e.g. Malaysia and China and Korea aren’t too different from one another, so we can just have one of each of these in every season.. It’ll keep every season feeling fresh too!
Also, a few other changes I’ve thought of..
-maybe 1-2 drop scores a season (due to shorter calendar)
-no 100% distance races (too long for some and now fuel and tyre wear is scaled for 50% races – just like in f1 2011)
-brands and Jerez could be included. But what about Imola and Estoril? I like the idea of all four but I know some only have the standard edition of the game. If you do, are you going to download the DLC?
- penalty system… Corner cutting only?? Or keep it as it is? I think it’s slightly better in this game but up to you guys really..
Sound good? What do you guys think? Or would you rather keep things as they were in season 4? Any other rules need to be changed? Let me know what you think.
I’ll set up a new forum over the next week or so. Then we can choose teams, calendar choices etc…
