Also, DNF puts you in a huge disantvantage for the 90-minutes races.
Are you sure about this ? From what i read during the announcement there will not be 3 different classement, just reversed championship order regardless of DNS/DNF/DSQ

Oh my bad then. I thought they used the same system like last season.

A lot of people complained about this last season, so it was changed for this season.

The idea behind it was good in my opinion, unfortunately it just didn't work or people didn't understand why it was like it was. Let's hope everyone likes the new solution better.

there was a big fault in the execution of that idea, which was penalizing people who actually started the previous races but wasn't able to finish them.
if someone got crashed out of a race, he got screwed twice, which was unfair.

I somewhat agree. Problem is that it's almost impossible to keep track of who disconnected because he couldn't be bothered to drive until the end or who actually got disconnected because of reasons out of his control.

Now everyone is in the same situation, even the people who just miss races without a good reason or just quit because it wasn't going how they wanted. I personally don't think that's fair either.

imho whoever bothered to show up at the race start should have been counted in "group 1".
but anyways that's the past, we got a new blanket solution now and i'm perfectly fine with that too.

Yea only top 20 get points, so in reality it doesn't matter whether 21st is ahead of the DNF aside from the fact he actually finished the race. When I saw it I just assumed that somehow 21st place completed less laps than the DNF driver, although I wasn't there so I don't know. And like I said, both get 0 points so I didn't really care.

I assume the table only looks at points, nothing else. Get some points and the problem will be resolved :)

We upset him last season :( poor Cravgar. Either way, he would easily be challenging for the leader's points in T3 anyway, and from what I've seen the staff don't like adding drivers mid season who are capable of winning races in their tier :p

Yes, that's true. We tried to avoid adding drivers to a tier where they could potentially interfere with championship fights in S10. TBH, I don't know if this unwritten guideline is still in effect.
As far as I know, there has not been a placement decision made about the mid season signups. But T2 is full, so there aren't many options available to place @Cravgar .

I agree with you all whole heartedly on not placing drivers who might interrupt things, racing with most of you was great but only having the option for a 3 way battle isn’t really that fun which is my main hesitation.

Having said that I signed up for the last two gte races so I’m hoping I’m in there which will see me through to pretty much the end of the season so bring on s12. I did lol at seeing all the lobbies with only 22 or so people though, at least 20 people bailing is a shame
