X360 Grid Autosport League - Season 2



This thread contains general information about league information and lobby settings. Reading this will help to understand how the league will work.Before signing up to the league, you must read the league rules and information

The racing rules are as per the F1 leagues.

Clean racing:

Race cleanly at all times. No contact should occur between cars on track, and as a driver you are required to do your best to avoid this from happening. Accidents do happen, but if you are at fault for causing a collision, you may be penalised.

Deliberately crashing into another car will result in being permanently excluded from the league. If you accidentally take out another car, or are responsible for causing an incident, you have to slow down and safely let the affected car(s) back in front of you on track, as long as the circumstances allow it. Even if it doesn't benefit the other car, that is the punishment you have to take for causing a collision. If you fail to abide by this rule, you are likely to receive a harsher penalty by the stewards if the incident is brought up. This rule can only be overruled by the affected driver telling you over voice chat to keep going. The above rule still applies even if lag (connection issues) is the cause of the incident, when it is obvious that your car's lag is the cause of another driver going off, as this would still be classed as an unfair overtake. Please be more careful around other drivers if you are regularly involved in lag-related incidents.

Overtaking:

Don't be too aggressive when trying to overtake. As the chasing car, it is generally your responsibility to not make contact with the car in front.

Defending:

Excessive weaving and blocking is not allowed. When defending from another car, choose a line on the track and stick to it. Do not force a chasing car off the track by leaving it too little room. If the attacking car is alongside you going into a corner (generally if the attacking car's nose is ahead of the defending car's sidepod), you must adjust your line to avoid contact.


On Grid, the cars are much wider, so some bumping is expected.

Corner cutting and track extending:

Luckily on Grid, when you cut 90% of corners, the game automatically slows you down. You've still got to stay with 2 wheels inside the track for that other 10%Track extending is dealt with by the game to an extent, there are times when you extend and the game lets you get away with. Again though, keep two wheels on the track at all times.

General Lobby Behaviour

Communication:

Please use a working headset while in the pre-race lobby and while racing, to effectively receive any potential messages or instructions from the League Coordinator. Using a headset is not mandatory, but desirable. Having the ability to talk to other drivers during the race can also make it easier to avoid - and resolve - incidents.

Lobby etiquette:

Shouting, name-calling and generally speaking rudely is not acceptable. Drivers who are a disruptive influence on the lobby atmosphere will be penalised accordingly, or in extreme cases removed from the league.
Respect the other drivers. Keep a friendly atmosphere in the race lobby and treat your fellow drivers as equals, regardless of them being quicker or slower than you.

Respect the League Coordinator:

Listen if he is giving a message, and accept the decisions he makes. If you feel any actions/decisions are wrong, address the issue calmly and maturely. Coordinators' decisions are final within the lobby, but may be reviewed later if you feel an error has been made. Please accept that making a call instantly is very tricky and the Coordinator, even if participating in the race, is expected to be entirely neutral.

Race etiquette:

If you are involved in an on-track incident, don't overreact. It may be frustrating, but you need to stay calm and get on with it. Losing out due to another driver's mistake or recklessness is no excuse for retaliation or acting against the rules. If another driver does something you feel is against the rules, report it to the Stewards Panel after the race rather than argue about it over the voice chat.
If you are having a bad race, don't act foolishly. As a driver, you have to accept that some races will be better than others and you can't always have it your way. If you are unable to enjoy the racing due to not being at the front, this is not the place for you - there are many drivers in the league, and someone always have to be at the back.
If you know you suffer from lag issues, are are battling with someone on track whom you know suffers from lag issues, you need to exercise extreme caution when attempting overtakes or using defensive manoeuvres.

Rage-quitting:

Deliberately quitting the race in any way - whether that is by quitting through the pause menu, getting yourself disqualified or deliberately crashing your car - is not allowed, unless you have a very good reason to do so. Accepted reasons for quitting could be that you are a danger to other drivers on track due to poor driving or connection issues, or that you are so far behind that it's obvious that you won't be racing anyone for the rest of the race, but ideally we want all drivers to stay in the race until the end. Quitting due to being angry at something - rage-quitting, in other words - is not a good reason.

Forum activity:

You need to be an active member on the AOR forum while being a driver in our leagues. We aren't forcing you to make several posts every day, but we prefer drivers who are involved with the community. We will occasionally check how long it has been since a driver has been logged into his forum account - if you have been inactive on the forum for a long time, you may be removed from the league. You are also expected to behave in a respectful manner on the forum, like in the race lobbies. Please avoid name-calling, baiting and other behaviour that is intended to aggravate other members of the community.

Participation:

If you cannot attend, please inform the league co-ordinator. (aka Erti)

Connection & Lag:


Fortunately, the game has been coded online so that lag is dealt with differently to F1 games. But you've still have to make sure your connection is stable as possible for the best experience.If you have to pull out, again you must inform the league co-ordinators.

There is a problem on GRID where looking back while driving can cause lag and frame rate drop. Please try to do this as little as possible.

Rule Enforcement and Stewards Panel


Up to a range of penalties can be applied for going against the following

Do not cause contact with other cars through being too aggressive when overtaking
Do not cause contact with other cars due to leaving them too little room when defending
If you do accidentally cause contact, back off and wait for the affected driver to recover.
Do not gain time through persistent corner cutting or extending.
Refrain from rage-quitting, accept that not all races will go to plan.

Penalty System


Mainly time penalties will be given out, whether it be a 3/5/10/20 second penalty.We could also swap finishing positions between for example 3rd and 4th get swapped due to a collision in the race

Penalty Points


Points may also be put on your driver license along with time penalties

Driver License system


12 pts = Race ban
9 pts = 15 Points deduction
6 pts = 8 Points deduction
3 pts = 5 Points deduction
