AOR Hype Energy F1 Leagues - Season 19
XB1 - Main Sign-Up Thread




This is the sign-up thread for Season 19 of the Main AOR F1 Leagues, sponsored by Hype Energy Drinks.

CURRENT SIGN-UP STATUS:
The sign-ups for this season are now OPEN.

The initial sign-up deadline is set to 29th February @ 23:59 (UK time).
You have to complete the full sign-up process before this time to be included in the initial league placements. Sign-ups after this time will only be added to the leagues if there are still spaces available.

Introduction:
Welcome to Season 19 of the AOR F1 Leagues! After a rather successful first season on the F1 2019 game it is time for a second season. Due to the possible release of the next F1 game, this will be a shorter season of 12 rounds.

AOR is all about having an enjoyable experience on track by following proper racing rules, as opposed to the demolition derby that is public lobbies. We have built a reputation for providing clean, fair and competitive league racing, and we will do our best to ensure that this continues in the best possible way. But remember, in order to achieve this, we depend on you as a driver to respect the rules and drive in a professional and fair manner.

It doesn't matter how fast and experienced you are - with our tiered league structure we welcome drivers of all skill levels to join the fun. All we require is that you are committed and that you've got the mindset of clean racing. Our top leagues will challenge the fastest drivers on the game with no assists allowed, while drivers with little experience can choose to sign up to the assist leagues where Traction Control and ABS is allowed - while everyone in between will be placed in competitive leagues that seem to suit their pace.

If you are fast enough to be placed in the top leagues, you will have to race with no assists. Exactly how many leagues will be forced to no assists will depend on the amount of sign-ups, but we urge any drivers with aims of reaching the top to embrace the challenge of no assists as soon as possible! Drivers who get placed in lower leagues are allowed to use the auto gears and racing line assists if necessary. And if you feel that you are dependant on using Traction Control or ABS in order to race, you should sign up to the Assist leagues.

We also have separate leagues for the Oceania region and the America region. The social race section can be used to organise your own one-off races or join races organised by our members.

The league races from the top leagues will be broadcasted live on the AOR YouTube channel!

General League Information:
League structure: Each platform runs a set amount of leagues, depending on the amount of drivers signing up at the start of the season. The leagues are tiered, with the aim to have the faster drivers in the higher leagues and the slower drivers in the lower leagues. More detailed info on how the leagues are set up can be found in the info thread.
Assists: The top league tiers will have all driving assists banned, while lower leagues will allow racing line and auto gears. The amount of no-assist leagues will depend on amount of sign-ups and may vary between platforms.
Driver placements: Drivers will be placed in an appropriate league based on their time trial times, their performances in the evaluation race, and their performance in the previous league season (for drivers who raced in Season 18). Drivers who missed a significant number of races in Season 18 may be placed as reserves.
Race format: Each race event features an 18-minute qualifying session followed by a 50% distance race.

Day/Time:
Race day: Sundays
Start time: 8:00pm (UK time)
PLEASE NOTE: The top tier league of each platform will have staggered starting times. PS4 Tier 1 will start at 7pm. PC Tier 1 at 8pm, and XB1 Tier 1 at 9pm. All other tiers remain at 8pm.

It is vitally important that you read and understand the full content of the threads listed above. By signing up to our leagues, you agree to abide by all of our rules, and we expect all drivers to be aware of these before entering. Rules may change from season to season, so it is strongly advised to read the rules before each season.

Our racing rules are in place to help us enforce clean and fair racing in the leagues. As an AOR driver, it is required that you do your very best to race within these rules at all times. In short, this means no contact and no abuse of track limits. We also expect you to behave maturely and respectfully in the race lobby and on the forums, and follow the guidelines and requirements stated in the rules.

Sign Up:
You should only sign up to the leagues if
● you intend to complete the full 12-race season.
● you are able to race regularly on the set race day (Sunday nights).
● you intend to be active on the forum.
● you are a clean, fair and mature racer.

In signing up, you confirm that you have read the content of the League Rules and League Information threads, and that you accept the rules and regulations specified.

Sign-Up Process:
You need to complete all of the relevant steps below in order to be granted a place in the leagues. The sign up stage must be done before the other two stages.

STEP 1 - Sign Up (All Drivers):
Sign up by replying to this thread, following the below template. Make sure you fill in all of the fields.

● Gamertag: [Enter your Gamertag here]
● Nationality: [Enter your nationality here]
Assists used: [Enter any assist that you are dependant on using]*
Have you read and understood the AOR Rules? [Yes/No]
Do you accept that if you are fast enough to be placed in one of the top leagues you will have to race with no assists? [Yes/No]
Are you committed to completing the whole season as an active member of the league? [Yes/No]
Have you taken part in any previous AOR F1 league? If so, please state your most recent league/split:
Have you ever requested a name change on the AOR forums? If so, please state your previous username(s):
● Speedtest result:
[Test your connection towards a London, UK-based server at speedtest.net and add a screenshot of your result here]

*Note that drivers who are fast enough to be placed in the top leagues will have to race with all assists off. The amount of no-assist leagues will depend on amount of sign-ups. TC and ABS is only available in the Assist League (see separate sign-up thread).


STEP 2 - Time Trial (All drivers):

To help us judge your current pace and assign you to an appropriate league, you will need to set time trial times at 3 specified tracks - Spain, Hungary and USA (all dry) - using the Mercedes car (with TC/ABS disabled).

When done, post the screenshots showing your lap times in the Time Trial thread.

STEP 3 - Evaluation Races (All drivers):

New and returning drivers participating in AOR leagues before season 18, will have to take part in one evaluation race in order to be placed in the leagues. Drivers who participated in season 18 are not obliged to take part in an evaluation race.

The evaluation races will be arranged on various dates throughout the sign-up period, and the drivers mentioned above are required to attend one of them (whichever date suits you best). This works as an additional measure for us to judge your pace, to ensure that you are properly committed to participate, and also to make sure new drivers have had an experience of organised online racing before jumping into the league.

Evaluation races will be arranged from 19th February - 1st March. You can find all the necessary information in this thread.

When done, post your race information in the evaluation race thread, following the template in the first post.

If you have any questions about the sign-up process or the leagues in general, feel free to send a message to a member of the F1 Coordinating Team or put a post in the Main Discussion Thread.

AOR Hype Energy F1 Leagues - Season 19
XB1 - Main Sign-Up Thread




This is the sign-up thread for Season 19 of the Main AOR F1 Leagues, sponsored by Hype Energy Drinks.

CURRENT SIGN-UP STATUS:
The sign-ups for this season are now OPEN.

The initial sign-up deadline is set to 29th February @ 23:59 (UK time).
You have to complete the full sign-up process before this time to be included in the initial league placements. Sign-ups after this time will only be added to the leagues if there are still spaces available.

Introduction:
Welcome to Season 19 of the AOR F1 Leagues! After a rather successful first season on the F1 2019 game it is time for a second season. Due to the possible release of the next F1 game, this will be a shorter season of 12 rounds.

AOR is all about having an enjoyable experience on track by following proper racing rules, as opposed to the demolition derby that is public lobbies. We have built a reputation for providing clean, fair and competitive league racing, and we will do our best to ensure that this continues in the best possible way. But remember, in order to achieve this, we depend on you as a driver to respect the rules and drive in a professional and fair manner.

It doesn't matter how fast and experienced you are - with our tiered league structure we welcome drivers of all skill levels to join the fun. All we require is that you are committed and that you've got the mindset of clean racing. Our top leagues will challenge the fastest drivers on the game with no assists allowed, while drivers with little experience can choose to sign up to the assist leagues where Traction Control and ABS is allowed - while everyone in between will be placed in competitive leagues that seem to suit their pace.

If you are fast enough to be placed in the top leagues, you will have to race with no assists. Exactly how many leagues will be forced to no assists will depend on the amount of sign-ups, but we urge any drivers with aims of reaching the top to embrace the challenge of no assists as soon as possible! Drivers who get placed in lower leagues are allowed to use the auto gears and racing line assists if necessary. And if you feel that you are dependant on using Traction Control or ABS in order to race, you should sign up to the Assist leagues.

We also have separate leagues for the Oceania region and the America region. The social race section can be used to organise your own one-off races or join races organised by our members.

The league races from the top leagues will be broadcasted live on the AOR YouTube channel!

By signing up to our leagues, you agree to abide by all of our rules, and we expect all drivers to be aware of these before entering. Rules may change from season to season, so it is strongly advised to read the rules before each season.

Our racing rules are in place to help us enforce clean and fair racing in the leagues. As an AOR driver, it is required that you do your very best to race within these rules at all times. In short, this means no contact and no abuse of track limits. We also expect you to behave maturely and respectfully in the race lobby and on the forums, and follow the guidelines and requirements stated in the rules.

*Note that drivers who are fast enough to be placed in the top leagues will have to race with all assists off. The amount of no-assist leagues will depend on amount of sign-ups. TC and ABS is only available in the Assist League (see separate sign-up thread).


STEP 2 - Time Trial (All drivers):

To help us judge your current pace and assign you to an appropriate league, you will need to set time trial times at 3 specified tracks - Spain, Hungary and USA (all dry) - using the Mercedes car (with TC/ABS disabled).

When done, post the screenshots showing your lap times in the Time Trial thread.

STEP 3 - Evaluation Races (All drivers):

New and returning drivers participating in AOR leagues before season 18, will have to take part in one evaluation race in order to be placed in the leagues. Drivers who participated in season 18 are not obliged to take part in an evaluation race.

The evaluation races will be arranged on various dates throughout the sign-up period, and the drivers mentioned above are required to attend one of them (whichever date suits you best). This works as an additional measure for us to judge your pace, to ensure that you are properly committed to participate, and also to make sure new drivers have had an experience of organised online racing before jumping into the league.

Evaluation races will be arranged from 19th February - 1st March. You can find all the necessary information in this thread.

When done, post your race information in the evaluation race thread, following the template in the first post.

AOR Hype Energy F1 Leagues - Season 19
XB1 - Main Sign-Up Thread




This is the sign-up thread for Season 19 of the Main AOR F1 Leagues, sponsored by Hype Energy Drinks.

CURRENT SIGN-UP STATUS:
The sign-ups for this season are now OPEN.

The initial sign-up deadline is set to 29th February @ 23:59 (UK time).
You have to complete the full sign-up process before this time to be included in the initial league placements. Sign-ups after this time will only be added to the leagues if there are still spaces available.

Introduction:
Welcome to Season 19 of the AOR F1 Leagues! After a rather successful first season on the F1 2019 game it is time for a second season. Due to the possible release of the next F1 game, this will be a shorter season of 12 rounds.

AOR is all about having an enjoyable experience on track by following proper racing rules, as opposed to the demolition derby that is public lobbies. We have built a reputation for providing clean, fair and competitive league racing, and we will do our best to ensure that this continues in the best possible way. But remember, in order to achieve this, we depend on you as a driver to respect the rules and drive in a professional and fair manner.

It doesn't matter how fast and experienced you are - with our tiered league structure we welcome drivers of all skill levels to join the fun. All we require is that you are committed and that you've got the mindset of clean racing. Our top leagues will challenge the fastest drivers on the game with no assists allowed, while drivers with little experience can choose to sign up to the assist leagues where Traction Control and ABS is allowed - while everyone in between will be placed in competitive leagues that seem to suit their pace.

If you are fast enough to be placed in the top leagues, you will have to race with no assists. Exactly how many leagues will be forced to no assists will depend on the amount of sign-ups, but we urge any drivers with aims of reaching the top to embrace the challenge of no assists as soon as possible! Drivers who get placed in lower leagues are allowed to use the auto gears and racing line assists if necessary. And if you feel that you are dependant on using Traction Control or ABS in order to race, you should sign up to the Assist leagues.

We also have separate leagues for the Oceania region and the America region. The social race section can be used to organise your own one-off races or join races organised by our members.

The league races from the top leagues will be broadcasted live on the AOR YouTube channel!
