Well unfortunately, I don’t have anything in the way of decent pics to post, because the replay didn’t save right (the above image is the extent of what happened according to the replay). Fucking brilliant job, Turn 10. Five stars. (I should’ve streamed it...) If anyone else happened to save the replay and had better luck with theirs working, please send a copy to me if you can.
Apart from that, there were a few hiccups in hosting this race. Firstly, apparently lobby rules don’t override user settings. I.E. people were taking damage/fuel loss/tire wear despite the lobby settings being set to “Cosmetic”. A+ job again, Turn 10. This led to people having to pit during the race because of accidents. I’m a little miffed because I noticed this was happening, and called everyone to pit once before the race was over if they hadn’t already. I was in first place when this happened but after that pit, plus a screwup later on on my part, the whole thing essentially cost me first place. Yeah, I’m a little salty. I also forgot the end of race timer and the random grid setup, so sorry to all about that.
Still, it feels great racing again, and I had a fun time. I hope the newcomers had a lot of fun as well. Nice to meet all you guys, and I hope to see you more in future races. Hopefully we’ll also get tag sorted out later, and maybe even work out a new version of Oppo Cat & Mouse. I hope that my guess is wrong and that Tag isn’t locked to Test Track Airfield, because that place was a little too open.
(This guy’s seen some shit.)
