RACERS & BREAKERS

Recommended Posts

Nitty Don

Look forward to tonights shenanigans !! Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gifShifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gifShifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif

 

Also on the subject of adding extra rules, I really really do not think this event needs any more the less rules there are, the lesser the chance of anyone breaking them, so the lesser the chance of anyone getting pissed off/or calling foul play, I love the fact that this is just straight out wrecking !! rampage_ani.gif

 

Jedi - If you were driving that car you are now demoted to breaker wink.gif only kidding hope you and your friends are OK smile.gif

@dee - sorry to hear, budsmoker, but i understand if now is not the time for you to use yr code. smile.gif we gotta get you 6 months(!), you just can't continue like this! angry.giftounge.gif if you do decide to join tonight i promise it'll be way worth it... just be sure you can move yr half eaten controller to race and still hear game chat (just use headphones & turn em WAY up!)

 

@lerayee - cryani.gif no after work?

 

@nittee - i'm with you on rules... the less the better if we can help it. icon14.gif this race is what it is, racers racing, breakers well... breaking. everything else is no holds barred....mean street racing baby! cool.gifjust the way daddy likes it

 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

RACE NIGHT TONIGHT!

i'm sure a bunch of us borough breakers will be short handed tonight. confused.gif so we'll most likely have a mix of 5 team skirmishes and possibly simple 2 team rival races. booze is joining us later so i'd like to finish the night with our chosen teams (even 2 man teams if need be). Shifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gifShifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gifShifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif

 

i'm still waiting to hear back from strength & iggs. i see strength online often so hopefully he'll show & just hasn't been able to reply? confused.gif

I'm not suggesting we physically enforce any rules. I'm merely suggesting that teams band together and form some sort of strategy before the race. A bit of mystery and not knowing what's waiting for you around the corner is what MAKES this race, but getting the same old, same old at every turn and no help from team mates gets a bit irritating after a while. A bit of team work and communication will make this a much more pleasant experience. I ALMOST lost my temper a couple of times the other night, and probably would've if this wasn't so effin fun. But you know what they say... do not feed the animals! Know what I mean! devil.gif

 

So yeah, that's all I'm suggesting... smile.gif

i completely understand & agree where you're coming from leelee. it's good to bring up the importance of teamwork and strategy which is a huge part of the competitive aspect of the game. whether you have breakers that chase or breakers that block ramps & traffic.. the whole point is to get your racer to the finish first. that's also why the racer is the team captain.. breakers should be giving the racer just what they need. smile.gif

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(party chats) will help emensly for both talking strategy & for the folks who just need to give their ears a break from the game chat. music.gif but as dee boi/ Rguy pointed out, if you are in game chat just use your phone if need be.

 

monocle.gif i do want to emphasize again that this tournament we're about to embark on is meant to be fun... with that good ol friendly competitive edge. there certainly will be winners lol.gif &even losers cryani.gif . some will hardly finish in the top 3 and some will be there consistently. but with this circuit spanning 8 weeks anything can happen. best advice i can have is to just enjoy the ride! cool.gif

Not sure how the phone will work if a racer is trying to co-ordinate 2 blockers ??

 

For the fact that I am a grumpy old man it would be preferable to me if my team went for the party chat route, I'm too long in the tooth to be fighting over airspace !! also I think the breakers can spring better suprise attacks if there plan of action isn't broadcasted to the whole lobby wink.gif

 

What is my teams thoughts on this ??

(party chat / phones) best case example i can think of is: racer phones a blocker: "go block off the broker bridge you maggot!" then breaker 1 calls breaker 2 "see the boss has got a little job for us tah doo see" (but without the bad mobster accent) colgate.gif the downside is a racer has to "fiddle" with their phone for the first call. confused.gif

 

something else comes to mind ... might be better to have a breaker start party chat.. this way if the racer wants to dump the party chat and go to game chat... he won't have to do any fiddling with menus. smile.gif

Nitty - I say we stay in party chat but then again, Booze isn't going to be here until later so I guess we can just use the phone, even if its a little bit of hassel.

Lol, you said "I" eleven times in that short post, its just me me me with some people! wink.gif Only joking, I do it quite alot aswell.

 

On-topic - I have a suggestion swoon, for future casual events (like last night), we should divide the top and bottom halves of the lobby into teams to avoid confusion and time wasting (like last night)... thats if people dont mind playing with anybody ofcourse, personally I dont give a sh*t.

This sounds like internet grooming to me mercie_blink.gif I will not remove my clothes for any videos you are making barf8bd.gif

 

On topic - Great games again, and I don't mind what team I am on if its a casual meet up, I think Sweaty's idea is simple and effective icon14.gif

very nice, shweaty...we'll make this the standard then. if we're doing two teams we'll just split the room and have a racer for each. (nice & simple) smile.gif

 

last night went alright, we lost a good twenty minutes to trying to work around moderate nats (i blame cockstar!) but now i know who to invite first to get everyone in. icon14.gif

 

the races themselves were fun but not quite as competitive as i hope these to be. this is why we need to be sure our racers are up for the task of racing and not getting caught up with the fun of breaking. we need racers! angry.gif

 

(switching roles for circuit) what does everyone think? personally, i just want to avoid having breakers race as i think it will result in what we saw last night. but if real racers are having a go at each other, it keeps things competitive. we need racers who have that real passion of winning, speed, and won't quit early. the downside of having one fixed racer is that everyone is limited to their roles. but when i think of racing in gta i think of two breeds.. racers and (rymes with reefers).. you're either one or the other. confused.gif i hate to limit you all, but i still think it's better for the essence of the game... i'm def open to being convinced otherwise.

 

(attendance) where was mister worker? iggs?

Swoon - I am a natural racer, but enjoy breaking things where does this leave me ?? wink.gif

 

I was thinking if we go down the 2 team route why dont we have a bunch of no holds barred racing and the first 2 players to record 2 wins are our team captains ?... basically everyone who turns up will race against each other until the true racers emerge ?

 

Leray I will help out but my clothes will remain on my body, I can't have them type of videos leaked to the interwebz !!

Hahaha. Yeah, I apologise for just taking off.

 

At the beginning of the race I heard everybody say "let the racers past" so there I was toddling along up to the front of the pack when BOOM, I'm knocked off the road by Nitty. So I just thought "f*ck this then - I'm driving to the docks" so there I was toddling along to the docks (albeit at a riduclous speed) followed in hot pursuit by the very same person who drove me to this madness in the first place. Then to add insult to injury, after I drove my car into a warehouse, he has the flipping cheek to collide head first into the back of my beautiful Sabre and dry hump me without the common courtesy to even give me a reacharound! "I'm trapped - Do I respawn, or do I just sit here and take it up the tailpipe?" Oh, what a predicament! cryani.gif

 

This was all in good fun, by the way. I figured I'd be able to get away with it seeing as this was just another casual night. As you could tell, I wasn't in "professional" mode anyway, considering I wasn't talking (yes, I could hear everybody but Guru who got muted, just couldn't be f*cked to talk) and griefing anybody and everybody! Next time I'll be on tip top form and ready to rumble wink.gif

 

The subsequent race and TDM were fun. I was on a team of my own in that race (incase you didn't realise by my shiny red Patriot I was driving! tounge.gif) and the less said about that embarrasing TDM the better tounge.gif

LeeRay - I'll help you out. Getting a capture card myself soon hopefully.

 

Nitty - Great idea, i'm in the same predicament. Natural racer but love breaking.

 

Leelee - You funny f*cker.

 

Swooner - Strength just pm'd me saying he's gonna be there next time but can you find out about this "iggs" guy i've yet to meet, if he's inactive then will you allow me to find a replacement?

If its tonight I might not be able to help, I have a friend around for some drinky poos !! might make it but expect me to be muted or incoherent smile.gif

 

Leeham - your exaust pipe was too damn sexy to resist why do you think I chased you all the way to the docks wink.gif on a serious note is there a rule for the breakers to let the racers through at the begining ?? I did hear people mention it but I am a sucker for breaking rules !!

 

 

Also some tunage ideas for the promo :

 

I Predict A Riot - Kaiser Chiefs

Fast Cars - Tracy Chapman

?? - Madness (not sure of title track but the one that includes the line (I've been drivin in my car, its not quite a Jaguar)

Road Rage - That welsh bird (I thinks its Catatona or something like that)

 

Yes I am showing my age !!

....can you find out about this "iggs" guy i've yet to meet, if he's inactive then will you allow me to find a replacement?

(iggs) i haven't heard a thing from him since he applied... he knows how to find us here. notify.gif i'd say see if you can find someone for your team... go for it. strength is pretty active and i'm pretty sure we can count on him being involved.

 

@leelee - you are a funny guy indeed! i wish you had yr mic in so i knew what was at hand there with you and nitty and i'm glad it was all in good fun. i was starting to worry that you were just in a bad mood & didn't want to race anymore. tounge.gif

 

@nitty - you have a fine idea there! no holds barred racing! top two are our racers. but just so we're clear... we're still going for the 5 teams for the circuit? monocle.gif

 

(head start) there is no rule that racers need to be given a head start. though breakers should try and help their racer get out front from the starting line and to the lead.

 

(promo) we'll try and see if we can at least get some 3 on 3's going tonight and film some of the action. we'll race simple 1 lap tracks and switch up the car colours and types (to give leray mixed footage). if you can make it great if not, hopefully we'll get some footage with all of us next week!

Chasing cars wouldn't suit it properly.. Not what i have in mind anyway for the video..

 

Although, it maybe hard doing this video if i turn off everything... I will just have to check the arrows on the markers you pass through. Or pick i track i know well..

It was a joke anyway, I was just brainstorming for tunes with "cars" in the title wink.gif . Thats why I said put it in the credits. Definately not my kind of thing anyway. The only bands I really like are Oasis, Arctic Monkeys and Bloc Party. I'm listening to alot of jump up/liquid d&b and crazy dubstep atm. Its awesome, see you @ 10.30.

Nitty - Is that idea for the wednesday nights or for the 8 week circuit, if its for the 8 week circuit then I only see one flaw is that if a "racer" doesn't get in the top 2 and doesn't want to be a breaker he will probably not enjoy it or maybe worse try and ruin the event =/ If its for the wednesday night thing (which it probably is) then yeah its a good idea.

 

The Promo - I would've helped out but I wasn't on the forums earlier and I doubt you guys are still doing it smile.gif

 

Swooner - It's better to keep the roles the same to have that whole personal competition between each racer which you wouldn't get if the roles changed all the time, only problem is that alot of people are natural good racers but also like breaking. Kinda hard which ever way you do it. =/

You could take inspiration for the promo from this blast from the past !! The music is quite fitting if you think back to that first race we did with the blue/red Sabre's ! cool.gif

 

I doubt any of you young 'uns remember this advert ......

 

 

 

Sorry I didn't accept the invites last night but I was bladdered so would of only slowed down any recording you had to do blush.gifShifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gifShifty41s_beerhatsmilie2.gif
