I'm a bit confused.  I didn't think I was racing in this one.  I thought it was about filling two rooms completely and the rest are reserves unless there was a reasonable amount extra.  I actually prefer it that way because then you've got to earn your spot.  And I'm saying this from the stand point of more than likely missing out each time because of it but I think them's the breaks.  

I also think by not having just the two rooms to capacity is going to greatly change the championship results in the long run.  So many more variances happen when there are 16 on the track.  Plus the top people in Room 3 as it is may have had the chance to increase their standing but now they're limited.  Look at Cosmic who's a bee's dick away from Frozen, but now that battle won't take place when it should.  For the good of racing I really think you should go back to the cascading method throughout.  People like me will just have to pull our fingers out and practise, practise, practise.  I need to prove I should be there and not just rock up on the night possibly having no laps under my belt and therefore possibly stuffing up what could have been some great racing for others.  There's always the chance someone can't make it anyway and up the ladder we go.

This was actually my original thought with the cascading room setup but i was concerned that people may miss out.

This said the room could be 16/16/rest if they are up to it, but this could mean they only have 4 people in the room.

I would rather it this way as it means you earn your spot on the grid in the top 32. In future we would need at least 40 signed up to have 3 competitive rooms as room 3 would have 8 cars then.

So if its 16/16/rest in reserve this week then the following would be reserve drivers in order of qualifying:
ThresholdAU - would get first draft as he qualified.

then:
chopsticks666, G00MF and madracer38 would be picked up if needed in any given order as they did not qualify, they would only be able to race in room 2 and would be treated as qualifying 32nd (back of the grid) for the first race.

IF there is no issue with this from the people who may miss out then ill change the rooms to suit, this would better sort our championship and put more of an important role on qualifying.

Got an opinion on this then post away Smile it open to discussion, also get more people to sign up spam your Friend List about the series 3-5 more people competing and you'll have a competitive room 3

16/16 + rest/reserve is best. Perhaps think of it as the F1 rule of 107% of the fastest lap time......Nascar share the same rule too I think.

I'm happy with a 16/16/+ room set up. For reasons stated by others above.

Another thought: I think it would be good to allocate points to drivers that don't make the cut but only those that actually put in a qualifying time. So position 33 should get championship points equivalent to 1st place in Room 3. Myself and others get squat because we never rocked up in the first place. That way people who don't make the cut don't feel their efforts were for nothing and they've still got a chunk of points that keeps them possibly competitive should they sneak into a room.

Also, I think this is going to need to be a scenario when Pcars comes out. There's no way known (assuming it's a good 35 on the grid) that two lobbies should be made when you get a handful extra trying to qualify. There should be nothing wrong with the extras racing in a 2nd room, but to split a room when you can have 35 in the one race would be racing heresy.

I'm against changing the rules in the middle of a round, and we're 2 day away from a race. I say keep it the same this round, and we can look at changing it next round

So officially what was the original rule? I thought it was full cascading.

My thoughts are 16/16/rest but I'm only new to this group can someone explain why it's not run qualifying to determine the lobby number but then the race results is by the total race time. Now I know there is the warm up lap but if for each round there is a start time for example start at 5min.  that gives everybody the chance to climb the full field if fast enough.

I guess if one lobby has more SC then their times will be a slower than the other lobby.
Say lobby 1 has a couple of SC periods, that might mean lobby two finishes before lobby one (on overall time) without those drivers being exposed to the same race events that those competitors in lobby one experienced. I think you can't compare things that will always be unequal.

Ok here is what is happening. 

Race week be run as:
Lobby 1 = 16
The rest of the field split evenly over the other two lobbies. Scores will be determined by lobby 1 points through to 16th with lobby 2+3 following respectively. The results will not be determined by total time. If you don't qualify high you don't score as high. Plain and simple.

Plain and simple and very very big.  So I guess I am racing.  I'm definitely in the right room anyway as I'm 1:59's in general but busted into the 1:57's by fluke. Not a fan of this track.

Let's leave things as they are for now. Tuesday night lobby 1 will start at 9:00, lobby 2+3 will start at 9:10. At 9:00 the hosts of lobby 2 and 3 will swap to party chat, if there are 3 no shows across lobby 2 and 3 both lobbies will be merged to a full 16 player lobby

Just a heads up, as it is a safety car round lobby hosts will need to make sure they save and share the replays of the race
