ANNOUNCING THE TEAMS
How do I not get give a GT Div 2 driver when RZR has 4. Surely if you are running the draft you should make sure every team has at least 1 driver in each division now it has been taken out of our hands.
Also RZR has no PCars Div 1 drivers but NLR and Selby have 3 each???
Hey @Hatfield, Firstly, thankyou for the time and effort to organise the draft.
im quite interested in how the draft worked (as im sure some others are too)
if its not too hard to explain, could you give us a rundown?
you are very welcome.
Certainly I can explain the process:
Considering the Captains voted to have some retention's instead of the straight draft I had planned, we had to get those out of the way first.
So I assigned every team their chosen retention's and moved on to the rest of the drivers for the draft (ignoring those already chosen via retention and the captains themselves)
Each Captain listed all divisions in order of preference. Then going from the new team ICR, followed by last place, 2nd last place etc worked out which team would get to pick from which division in which order.
Then the first team got their highest pick that was not already taken etc
It just worked out this way that certain teams missed out (especially in GT6 Division 2 which had the lowest number of drivers and contained 3 Captains & 2 retention's)
I felt that Captains divisions & retention's shouldn't influence the draft.
New team. I will miss you TLR but will be happy to beat you @v8power383 see you on the black stuff.
Awesome mate. Thanks for that. Seems like the retentions made it a bit less of an 'even' spread (for lack of a better word)
I know it was discussed prior to this draft, but now we all know how it works, maybe we can look at the retentions again next season?
I am all for perfecting the process
oops sorry @VARDZ I just realised I assigned you @Beau_Albert despite him being down as a privateer.
Unless he would like to stay with the team, I will remove him from the list
Now it's time to join a champion team. I think you and Bounty will make great team mates.
Replace him with @MINT_GTR
I'll stay unless there is someone that could replace me because i will only be doing 3 races at the most, potentially none so if there is any late sign ups, throw me out please.
....Gets retained after being that 1 fella no one wanted last season
Come on Beau HTO has lost warrior we need a leader
Isn't that your Job?
Nah, i'll try and do the 787B rounds but they will also mostly be for fun rather than practising my nuts off going for outright wins. Just taking a little step back from ROOZ for a while and focusing on iRacing. When GTSport comes around in December 2046, i might just make a return purely to go back up against Warrior.
I was referring to you as our on track leader but i understand your motive in regards to IR. my choice was a new computer to go DIRT or a trip to Spa
I agree. We will be strong running with each other, @Anthonyb and I had some good close racing last season - respect
Yeah good pace last night mate it is a good car I've gone 2 softer front and rear just to try to save tyres and done nothing with brake bias
I don't touch brake bias but I do run harder on the front which suits my driving style but it chews tyres. I've never felt the need to adjust my rears but might play around later today with some diff settings.
