There, we don’t have to speculate what tire strategy we’ll be running.

Hello, new to league racing and looking to join a league. It looked like you had a spot or two open so I'm just wondering if there was any potential to join and, if not, could someone point me elsewhere? Not quite sure exactly how people are put in different leagues and I didn't see a specific thread for it so figured I would just post here because I saw an open spot or two. Thanks!

I’ll let Joseph handle the logistics portion on how to do that, but I’ll ask the common question.

How fast are you, lol.

Not really sure how to answer that question rn since I'm new to league racing and therefore haven't had others to compare myself to. I spent about 15 minutes in time trial at spa because Joseph said that was one of the tracks i needed to set a lap on and i managed a 1:43.9, which is top 5%. But ofc take out all assist users and idk where that puts me tbh :/

I mean I do career mode on 105 difficulty but i would definitely question the efficacy of using career mode as a measure of speed or skill lol

@FatTwinkieMan all of the instruction on how to join a league are found in this thread: https://apexonlineracing.com/community/threads/aor-f1-2017-xb1-main-sign-up-thread-season-14.24567/

Once you complete TT on those tracks I believe the mods will try and fit you into the league you best belong in given that there's room. Best bet is to knock out the time trials as required and the ping and go from there
Thanks man. I was talking to Joseph and he gave me the whole run down but thank you. any idea how stringent the ping test is? The thing is im doing the test on my pc which has a mediocre wifi connection compared to my xbox which is on ethernet. i still get sub 100 ping (to UK servers) on my pc though so i would imagine thats fine, right? The ping requirements and download/upload speeds requirements are just to weed out those with slow or unreliable internet i would assume?

Ok a couple laps in tonight and a 1:06.9 is all I can manage with a theoretical .8... Absolutely love the flow of this track, I think it should make for some fun racing with the various spots you can overtake depending on how your launch is out of the corners.

I had a play with my set up (wheel) and knocked 2 secs off and coming in at 1.10.

Still can't seem to get front pointing into the corners right.

Do auto gears make a massive difference guys?
