01 server needs longer races pls

Postby Jrife548 » Tue Apr 21, 2020 3:30 am

01 Server is clearly the favorite as far as outdoors servers go, but it's 4 laps long. Barely enough for erode to start getting good. Let's get a solid 12+1 meta goin

Literally anything longer than 4 laps plz. Some tracks have the finish right after the start.

I did message JLV about a while ago asking for them to be 25 minutes or something like that. Was denied, think he said no body would want to wait.

That's true. 4 laps x 2-ish minutes + last guy to finish, is tedious enough if you have to wait. Better having like a flowtech server set to rotate on 20+2 races with auto restarts --.00h and --.30h, then you know to enter at 10.25 to make it into the 10.30 race... ?

Interesting idea! Easily done with a script too. I wonder if 30 minutes might be too long of an interval though.

In the meantime I changed 01 to 5 laps. It should take effect next time the server empties out.

Thanks for making the sessions a little longer, even one lap will make it a little better.

If people want long 30 minutes races, I think 20+2 or 20+1 is a good way to go. Easy times to remember when to log onto the server as well as you should get a few minutes between races to grab a snack, reply to a text or go for a quick bathroom break.

Way too long. Would end up with 5 people at the finish every race going 25/30 minute Motos.

I recommend 10-15mins + 1 lap if anything

But some folks (me) just wanna pop on and shred quick races, not everyone’s here for the ‘endurance’ runs
if I’m still complaining on the internet over the age of 30 someone ban me

Think that would need a separate server.

May you put 02 to 5 laps also?

Done. It'll take effect the next time the server is empty.

For now, 5 laps is perfect! But that is also a very good idea A lot of flowtech servers are circulating the 2019 Nats, mine included. They are on 30+2 and it's empty so I doubt majority would want to wait that long.
