Credit where credit is due, if I'm prone to criticise I'm also prepared to praise.

This is good info Pepper, thank you. It would be better before the fact of course, for everyone, to manage expectations.

In this situation you failed to anticipate the obvious (many flags don't match IP's - did you validate that before implementing your rule?) and then had to use a blunt instrument to mitigate (not fix) it. Thereby disapointing many of your most important customers. In the middle of an event. That's both poor planning and poor execution. In a marque event. We, your customers, could have helped you avoid both. Feel silly now? You should.

Hello guys!

I'm sorry for those of you who travel for work or leisure and then play the game. As mean to fight against flag-changing the IP's are checked for all participants. Disqualifying those with an entry done in a different country in their flag as the one corresponding with their IP.

We are very aware of the false-possitives this can create for racers with the charasteristics above and also with people who live near borders.

Nevertheless, we decided that it was more important to ensure flags and IP's matched.
 

And then...

OMFG.

If GL cannot prove that a time was done via a glitch, how can they prove, that a time was cheated if it does not exceed the legit zone and is not detected already by the game?
I guess it cannot prove this either.

It's funny how people still expect anyone associated with GL to do something that requires the use of their brains.

Third party software and modded versions of the game (E.g cheats) have been checked for all entries.

Respawn glitch and shortcut videos only exist since 2014, GL had no time to prepare yet. Maybe in 2030.

Idk how respawns are managed in game, but to resolve all glitches that exists on all maps maybe can be done in a way that respawn point cant be furter down the track, only at same place where it start or even before.
Game, i hope, can detect where car leave track before wreck/going of bounds.
In TLE-s this wont make any diference, problem can be only in MP but glitches are rarely used in MP anyway.

That's what they did in A9.
Basically if you respawn there you can mostly close the game, because you will be so far back, you cannot catch up.
In A9 it puts you back to the last place where the car was on the ground with 4 wheels, which, considering the bounce issue, can mean very long sections.

(imagine chaining a few ramps and getting physicsed then being placed 10 seconds back on the map, this is A9)

Ok, but this is perfect for TLE-s.
Cant expect any good time with wreck, besides, it will be same for all who wreck.
For mp leave it as it is.

What would you write to me is GL and he will do it his way
 
  1. Nie muszę grać, gram, bo chcę.
  2. Czas gry 82 days and 23 hours, for now
  3. Graj uczciwie szanuj swojego przeciwnika
