Raceroom Introduces Ranked Multiplayer Championships

VCidAf9.jpg


Ranked races in multiplayer have been around for quite some time, but now Raceroom takes it to the next level: The sim now features Ranked Multiplayer Championships! To start, these are divided into three categories, in which sim racers can participate depending on their reputation value.


The beginner championship is the BMW M235i Rookie Cup: There is no minimum reputation value, a fixed setup and 15-minute races in identical cars. The GT4 Trophy is more challenging, where sim racers with a reputation of 75 or more can take part and choose between different cars and setup options to compete in 20-minute races.

The highest level of the Ranked Championships is the GT3 Pro Series. A reputation of 80 or higher opens the door to participation in this series, and vehicles from various manufacturers and builds are available to choose from in the GT3 class. The setups can also be changed, and the races are the longest among the Ranked Championships at 30 minutes.

The classes are divided into Bronze, Silver and Gold splits depending on their rating, with the latter being streamed live on YouTube. A maximum of 24 drivers are possible per split, so a race of a championship can have a maximum of 72 sim racers on board. The races take place on fixed dates, which you can find below - for the top 10 of a championship vRP bonuses await as prizes, also drivers who participate in all races of a season receive an ingame currency reward. The top three also win Raceroom trophies.

That's great, but unfortunately racing around 8 pm is not possible for me and a lot of southern europe people. Same goes for the RD races (which I really liked to do). I understand that should have a compromise between east and west times, but come on, 8pm is too early. I think 9 pm would fit all.
 
1100 on weekdays...

It would be nice to participate in series such as this and the Race Department ACC series, yet they are always held on weekdays and while I am at work.

In doing this you lose nearly half of your potential participants.

Maybe set multiple times up so that everyone who wants to can participate? If other sims can do it I am sure RaceRoom can do it.

I thought when I saw the headline it might be something like rfactor was trying to do, obviously along the lines of iracing.

It seems its more like a league that races twice a month. I think there are plenty of leagues around that work for all time zones and have stewards review at the end of the race, dish out penalties if needed etc.

There is nothing bad about it but personally I think games need totry and tackle the issue of more frequent online MP with as good racing as can practically be had. There is no short supply of leages to offer what they are coming out with.
