This thread contains general information about the Assetto Corsa Competizione League, such as league structure, assist restrictions and lobby settings.

General Information:
League structure: A set amount of tiers will be created, depending on the amount of drivers signing up at the start of the season. The faster drivers will be in the higher tiers and the slower drivers in the lower tiers.
Regions: Assetto Corsa Competizione leagues currently only have European starting times. Drivers from all around the world are allowed to take part in the leagues, as long as their connection is suitable enough towards Europe.
Assists: All tiers will have the maximum stability control setting to zero. Other than the one mentioned before, all assists in the in-game menu can be used.
Driver placements: Drivers will be placed in an appropriate league based on their hot-stint time, their performances in the evaluation race, and their performance in the previous league season (for drivers who raced in Season 3). Drivers who missed a significant number of races in Season 3 may be placed as reserves.
Race format: Each race event features a 15-minute qualifying session followed by either a 60 minutes race or a 90 minutes race.

League Setup:

Driver placements:

When setting up the tiers for a new season, we always aim to make the tiers as close and competitive as possible, by placing drivers where they best fit into the league structure.

The leagues have no fixed promotion & relegation spots, due to the drivers taking part usually changing drastically from season to season, and due to wanting to incorporate new drivers in a competitive league straight away. This means it's up to the league coordinators to make a determination on where drivers should be placed, with the intention to make each tier as competitive as possible.

All drivers will be placed in a suitable tier based on various factors; the hot lap event held as part of the sign-up process, performance in the evaluation race, and to some extent performances in the previous league season (for drivers who raced in previous seasons).

Each tier will allow a full grid of 40-50 drivers. This includes reserve drivers.

Note: Drivers who missed a significant number of races in previous seasons may be placed as a reserve driver.

Joining mid-season:

It is possible for new drivers to sign up while the season is ongoing. They will still have to complete the regular sign-up, the google form, the hot-stint event and evaluation race, and will then be placed into an appropriate tier based on their pace. However, drivers will only be able join mid-season if there is a space available in an appropriate tier. If there isn't, they will be placed into a tier as a reserve driver until a space opens.

Reserve drivers:

Drivers who are assigned to a tier as a reserve driver will not have a guaranteed spot in the league races, but will be able to step in to race in place of any no-showers.

Reserve drivers are required to pick a car before being put in a tier, the points they score will also show on the standings page.

Reserve drivers will be visibly listed in their tier's championship standings. Points scored during the reserve driver period will stay when the driver becomes a regular driver.

Unlike main drivers, reserve drivers are not required to be online at the time of the races, but this is obviously appreciated. Reserve drivers who are inactive for a lengthy period of time (eg. frequently not being available to fill no-shower spots despite such spots being available) may be removed from the league. It's a good idea to keep an eye on the league forum before the races to see if any no-showers are announced.

If a main driver spot opens up within a league during the season, that league's most active reserve driver will be first in line to fill that spot. In case there are multiple most active reserves, the reserve who signed up earliest will be allowed to fill the empty spot.

Mid-season driver moves:

Drivers may be moved between tiers while the season is ongoing if it's clear they have been misplaced. This could be that they are clearly too fast for their split, or that they are unable to experience close racing due to being too slow.

Preferably we want to avoid having to move drivers between leagues against their will, but in extreme situations this can be a necessity to keep the leagues competitive or sufficiently filled up. The league coordinators reserve the right to move drivers up to a higher (or lower) tier, if this is deemed to be in the best interest of a tier, to avoid drivers from excessively dominating.

The following points will be scored for each race finishing position.

1st = 100 points
2nd = 90 points
3rd = 82 points
4th = 75 points
5th = 70 points
6th = 65 points
7th = 61 points
8th = 57 points
9th = 53 points
10th = 49 points
11th = 45 points
12th = 42 points
13th = 39 points
14th = 36 points
15th = 33 points
16th = 30 points
17th = 28 points
18th = 26 points
19th = 24 points
20th = 22 points
21st = 20 points
22nd = 19 points
23rd = 18 points
24th = 17 points
25th = 16 points
26th = 15 points
27th = 14 points
28th = 13 points
29th = 12 points

33rd = 8 points
34th = 7 points
35th = 6 points
36th = 5 points
37th = 4 points
38th = 3 points
39th = 2 points
40th = 1 point
41st - 50th = 0 points


DSC:
Drivers who get disconnected from the server, due to a connection issue, need to complete 70% of the race in order to be classified.

DNF:
Drivers who complete less than 70% of the race distance will be classified as DNF (Did Not Finish) in the race results and will score 0 points regardless of their final position.

DSQ:
Drivers who get disqualified from a race - whether that be due to an in-game penalty or post-race disqualification via the stewards panel - will be classified as a DSQ (Disqualified) and moved below all other drivers in the results. A DSQ due to an in-game penalty can be appealed via the stewards panel.

If a driver is classified as DSQ within a points scoring position, they will score 0 points for that position regardless of race distance completed.

DNS:
Active league drivers who did not attend the race will be classified as DNS (Did Not Start), and will not score any points.

● Championship standings:
Drivers and teams are ranked in the standings based on how many points they've scored over the course of the season. If two or more drivers or teams are tied on points, the higher place in the standings will be awarded the holder of most first places. If the number of first places is the same, the holder of most second places, then third places and so on until a winner emerges.

At the end of the season, the eight best results of every driver count. In case of attending just seven races - one 0 points score will be added. In case of attending just six races - two 0 points scores will be added. And so on and so forth.

Who to contact:

For league related enquiries or questions, your first point of contact should be a staff member within the tier you are assigned to. Upon joining a league, it will be made clear who your tier's coordinators are.

Example reasons to contact them could be:

● To inform them that you're missing a race
● To get information about your tier
● If you are unhappy about something, either with regards to a race or something on the forums

If you have an issue with your coordinator and would rather discuss the issue with someone else, then seek out another person from the below list and address the issue to them. Our coordinators and moderators are expected to remain completely unbiased, and as long as you address the situation sensibly and maturely they will be happy to discuss any issues no matter who it is with.

The following members are currently part of the team running the AOR ACC Leagues:
