I'm going to quit this league, sorry guys. I don't enjoy playing Project CARS anymore and because of that I have no motivation to practice. I might still watch the stream if it's broadcasted. :oops:

Dont wanna sound like a dick here, but Wednesday seems like the only days off I'm getting recently, and honestly I dont really wanna spend it practicing to then have a bad qualifying to then be involved in someone elses accidents and effectively waste a day. I'll go back to being Mr stat man :p

I'm retiring from this league, as I have moved on other sims.
Pcars isn't fun anymore for me, especially in this understeery mess of a car.
I won't take part in gt3 s7 either.
See you all in Pcars2 ! (If the physics are good enough...)
Wish you all the best, have fun racing (y)

Season review.

Rather sad that the season is over!
I loved the car choice! (although personally, I'd like to switch to something new for season 2, V8 SC's / Ginetta / etc - but that's a personal opinion!).
I loved the default setups - Some of the best racing I've seen on AOR streams! Very entertaining to watch and even more to be part of!
I really enjoyed the reverse grid element (Ok, it helped me a lot due to the fact I can't get magical qually times - putting me ahead of the faster guys (for a while at least).
Even though we all know the nature of putting faster guys behind slower guys will result in them having to work their way through the field, I do feel there was quite a lot of overly aggressive moves going on in places! And even taking into account of this being a Touring Car League, where contact was one of the main reason for watching it back in the 90's! There really is no need for it here :(
Sometimes it's almost impossible to pass someone who is just slightly slower than you. In which case, you just have to accept it, and stay behind and hope they make a mistake.
It's just very frustrating when you are defending against the faster cars behind you, and defending fairly - only to have them pass you by either making contact, or abusing the track limits.

I don't think I need to add anything to what Papand + Enzo posted about ppl not turning up towards the end of the season. But this is very sad. At least have the decency to inform the coordinators!

Accidents happen, we all know this. But it is only an accident if control of the car has been lost. if the driver is still in control of the car, and makes contact, then that's not actually an accident, it's a mistake. The term 'Accident' is miss used, and makes it sound like there was less fault/blame.

Finishing in the top 5 is rather crazy - my pace is just not even close to be in the top 5!, but it's a decent advert for driving your own pace / race, and just keeping it clean and out of trouble (although I was involved in 1 or 2 incidents!). It's always been my strategy, and has worked out rather well in the past, and clearly again here...

I've had some really fun / great races this season, and enjoyed every one of them.

I know what's involved in creating a league from scratch, and it takes a lot of time and effort to make sure things run smoothly. I think both @Enzo and @Morvic have done a great job in building this league, and I am already looking forward to a Season 2!.

Thank you to everyone involved, from creating / streaming / driving in it!

Was a nice league with a fun concept. Personally it was probably a mistake of me to join. Already in the GT3 S6 i could feel motivation dropping and being in need of a break from Pcars, so i should have let the wheel rest in off season. My pace in Zhuhai was good and it was nice to show i can be competitive in the top in a non-RUF. The rest of the races were all inflicted by no practice, so i had to pick up the pace as the evening progressed. That worked very well at that desert track i cant remember whats called. :D

Never really been a fan of default setups. One of my strengths has always been to be well prepared and working on your setup is part of that. With default on its too easy to just skip practice.

Thanks to the coordinators for their effort to make everything run smooth. Shame with so many dropping out. Also bit too much crazy driving here and there, that i hope will be gone for GT3 S7. :)

Gentlemen... @Enzo @Nismo this was really a exciting league !!! I had so much fun and i hope we all had. I liked almost everthing in this league :woot:. The competition was strong and sometimes with some unfortunate mistakes and incidents but overall very very good. So really thank you for the time and effort to set this up for us ! (y)

I hope there will be a second season or maybe something thats somewhat similar in this format and see all the guys back on track again !

Offcourse also thanks to @FisiFan91 for his great commentary and videos :snaphappy:!
