Gauntlet Mode

Thu Oct 29, 2020 1:06 pm
We would like to thank you all for spotting different issues with the newly added Gauntlet mode.

Here are a few things that will happen today.

Current Gauntlet season will end today, in a few hours to be exact, in order for the proper fixes to be deployed for the next season.
Once validation period is over, the next short season will start shortly after the current one.
Everyone will be gifted with 25x Golden Gauntlet Tickets that you can use to take advantage in the new season to come.

Reminder: ALL THE TICKETS WILL RESET WITH THE BEGINNING OF THE NEXT SEASON SO IT IS BETTER TO SPEND THEM ALL DURING THIS WEEKEND

====

(added from viewtopic.php?f=1505&t=708046&start=80#p4068566)

Let me give you a bit of clarification in regards to gauntlet mode.

- Player has to own 5 cars to enter the Gauntlet.
-To participate in qualification race (QR), player has to choose a deck of any 5 cars he owns. Different cars could be selected each time Player wants to improve his time.
-Player has a one free attempt to set the time on his home track. After that, each next race to improve the result requires a ticket.
-The race is a tag-racing with selected cars. Player's best Ghost on the home track should be saved until season ends.


Leagues Distribution
In each season player is assigned to the specific league based on his best cars rank.
League can't be changed until the next season.

League brackets

Garage score (GS) = best team score, sum of players top 5 cars ranks.

Rank from Tuning Kit doesn't count.

League 1: 9000 < GS

League 2: 8000 < GS ≤ 9000

League 3: 7000 < GS ≤ 8000

League 4: 6000< GS ≤ 7000

League 5: GS ≤ 6000

Challenge (active gameplay)

Challenging an opponent, player tries to beat the ghost set by the opponent on his home track during QR. Beating the ghost adds rank. If player lost to the ghost - rank decreases.

When challenging, the player receives a selective set of opponents with a similar rating (up to 5 opponents, the set should include players with both lower and higher rating, but approximately within the player's own performance indicators) and a home track different from his own (player cannot attack opponents with the similar home track).

To challenge someone player have to choose one of the opponents from the set.

If player doesn't like the set for some reason, he can reroll it to receive more suitable opponents. Reroll is a free option with a cooldown.

Each race is paid with a ticket (both successful or not)

Each challenge race grants standard credit rewards for Medals
Player will also get a daily challenge reward for several challenges (both successful or not)
Any race in which the player hasn't reached race result screen (left) is counted as a loss and takes the corresponding number of rating points away
When an opponent is selected player should beat the ghost set by the opponent on his home track.

Defense (passive gameplay)

"Defense" - someone tries to beat your ghost.

Defensing player gets rating if someone has lost to his ghost, and loses rating if someone has beaten player's time.

To "protect" himself from attacks player can improve the time set on his home track during the season (with a cost of the Ticket) by replaying QR.

Player can take the same set of cars that he used in QR, or another one

Each defense race costs a ticket.

Player's rating doesn't change with QR races

If player didn't beat his time, the best ghost remains.

Revenge

If player was challenged and defeated, he has the possibility to punish the attacker in response.

By pressing the "Revenge" button in the history of challenges player goes to the attacker's home track and tries to beat the last recorded ghost the attacker had set

Revenge could be performed only once, regardless of its outcome

After the player has avenged the attacker, he cannot be avenged with the same attacker in return.
Rating points should be added or subtracted according to the standard scheme.


Tickets

Each race in Gauntlet except the first one is paid with a special Ticket.

The number of tickets is limited per day.

After the player runs out of Tickets, he can:

Win Bonus Tickets in another events as a reward;
Wait for the Tickets refill.
If player leaves the race, the spent ticket will not be returned.

Tickets refill

The total number of free tickets refills every day.

Player can also win bonus tickets as items in different activities.

There is a timer that shows the time until the next tickets refill.

Bonus tickets

Player can get Bonus Tickets in other ingame activities.

Bonus tickets will be shown in the Gauntlet only, and have to be reset when new season starts. Bonus Tickets are shown as separate counter from free tickets.

During the Gauntlet season, player will use regular tickets first, and bonus tickets afterwards if they want

Bonus tickets (Golden Gauntlet Tickets) could set as reward in:
Milestone Ads Lottery (milestone reward)
Bundles in the shop
Festival reward
TLE reward
Multiplayer reward

Hi Andreea,
here a few issues:
- MP now crashes very often and the app exits. is this related to the new update?
- Good that they fix Gauntlet asap bcs it has several problems. Also some racers have crazy points. And can the tickets be 10 instead of 5? 5 seems very limited for 1 day.
- gud that the songs are bek
- there is a glitch in metal garden track, invisible wall on left road at beginning. everyone crashes there. I crashed there 2 times yesterday. its really an invisibile wall in the middle of the road!!!

- could you also explain the difference between grey tickets and the gold ticket?

I think thats all for my observations.

Ps Id like to spend my tickets now but its all grey and spinning.....

Gauntlet Mode

I've explained a few of the stuff already on the other thread, I'll address the MP bug and the garden track also.

I will ask whether they can add 10 tickets instead of 5 and will look over the leaderboard as the scores seem a bit too suspicious.

I'm sorry, Neilson :( I wish I could just send the update myself, but it was sent only for 50% of the Android players and nothing else since yesterday noon time...

Ohh, thank's for letting us know that GlitchLads has started drawing lottery draws on who will get what first. BTW my profile gets everything almost last (except poor Window users) and I also did not have any cars on offer to buy.

Are GlitchLads running a game company or some kind of East India Company which specialised in discrimination, segregation and extortion.
GL has decided to shut down this forum and asked us to join them on bla & bla bla where there is more noise but I prefer to migrate to https://asphalt8.freeforums.net
where forum friends have decided to congregrate and keep the spirit of this dying forum alive.
