**Feedback

 

I can't begin to count how many things went wrong in this meet. I severely failed to keep this meet under control. while every event I had planned happened, there was to much time waiting and misunderstanding. To started off with the usual meet n greet and the showroom event. This lasted a good 40 minutes which i think is pretty long. Once the fist set of cops arrived they never left. It got so bad that we had to move the event to a different location. Once we moved all went well for the rest of the showroom with JMer23 winning in his red comet. Next we proceed with the feature event the Custom Creations. In this event each player had to find a common everyday civilan vehicle and customize it to the best of there ability. Surprisingly with the small selection of vehicle there were and the small spawing rate, There were only two players with the same vehicle. This event was won by Tick in his pink Issi! We then moved on the normal drags using the bracket system which always works out. This was another example of how i failed to keep control. Many players were not ready when it was their time to go. Players were all over the airport in planes and helicopters. It just frustrated me thats when people were supposed to be racing there were flying around. That is all my fault because i didn't maintain order. Anyway the drags were once again won by Raptor! Someone needs to beat him!! :p We ended the meet as usual with the demolition derby! Before we started people were confused on if we were just finding vehicles and getting ready or meeting up then finding vehicles. But once it was all settled the derby was great! the new spot was amazing and really changed up the derby with some rocks as obstacles! For the most part the Sandkings were dominating but the little buggy held in for quite a long time! But the Sandking ruled and G Money 2o9 Won! I think this meet could have gone a lot better! I should have stepped up as a host and controlled my meet. I did very poor as a host in tonights meet. And for that i am sorry everyone.

Feedback & Pictures
Oct.15 "Car Off The Street" Meet


Feedback:
Sorry the feedback is long. It's actually the longest I've made and made me question why I do these. Oh well...

Right, I'm gonna sound like a dick for the first few paragraphs but please bare with me. The theme was that players would join the lobby and once everyone was assembled they had 15 minutes to find a car off the street, do it up and come back to the starting point. Afterwards we would race and do a demo derby in them. Ah, but there's some fine print. De didn't imply that we would be doing the racing and demo derby in those cars that we found. I feel I had my hopes up for nothing but I was also misled. I spent a good 2-3 hours getting as much money as I can and made around 160-190K which is great when doing missions by yourself. I went to Sandy Shores and on my way back with a family Regina, an Issi (mini cooper) spawned on the highway. I decked it out in pink and some sweet rims. The damn horn cost more than the actual value of the car. Made my way back in the city, we had some voting aaaaand then that was all for my Issi - a car I spent 100K on. I put an engine, tranny (not me) and a turbo in it for racing. Not once did De say, "pick a car off the street and make it nice ONLY for voting because after that they'll rot in your garage while we race sports at the airport". All that money wasted on performance when we used them to vote for ONE category, "best of show".

Yes, I'm a bit bitter but De missed out on such an awesome idea that would of made the slow-paced meet into a funfest. Everyone at the drags were sitting around in sports - typical car meet stuff. If everyone was in their custom creations they would be looking at what cars they could race against and actually think on how to beat them instead of the usual, "well that Banshee is gonna double-clutch, that 9F looks beatable", etc. They would be having fun and realize how close races could be when cars off the street race one another. Going faster isn't always best - go to a Nascar race and see them whiz by at 200 miles an hour. You get to cheer for 1.4 seconds and then wait a whole minute for them to come around again. I'm just saying that sports at the airport is done so much that the airport is now closed due to no planes being able to land 24/7.

Another missed chance was when a guy offered everyone a ride in his Miljet. 16 players in it and all jumping at the same time sounds like tons of fun. De instead opted to go by himself (offering a ride to anyone who needed one in his helicopter) and that broke the closeness of the lobby as everyone stole a plane or helicopter to get to the demo derby arena near Sandy Shores. You had plane icons all over the place and it was just a mad rush to get there. De seriously missed a chance for a memorable moment - you gotta take any chance you can instead of sticking to the script. Before we go away from the airport I wanna talk about the drag racing that took place there first. De did a great drag racing system (best out of 3, I think - not sure as I didn't take part as I was taking pics). Those that were not in the drag racing due to losing were in planes and just being a nuisance such as the one crashing in the middle of the track and just distracting me while taking pics. No one has a reason to be in a plane/helicopter other than taking pictures. That's why I don't do racing at the airport - players just can't sit still. A system needs to be made where those not taking part in the racing could, for example, go at the finish line and rate "best race" by which has the closest finish and all that. I was so off my game for taking pics as a Titan kept getting into shots and I would click a pic a second too late.

The thing I thought that everyone enjoyed was the demo derby which took place in the quarry. Great spot by De and really drove everyone into gear as they scrambled for vehicles. A lot of Sandkings showed up and I tried a few times to make an anti-Sandking alliance. I like to think I had teammates but my blown up car begs to differ! The Sandkings ultimately won but I feel the true winners were those that took part in the derby. You seriously need to bring the derby back for the next one!

De, you're a great host but I feel this wasn't your best one. I got the feeling you were out of it, that it just wasn't your day. Either way, hoping your next one goes better with more conversation on your part. Glad the whole lobby was patient and it went as good as it did....actually, before showing pics I'd like to warn the following:

jamrock55

Great detective work by Freddy1Krueger - jamrock55 was in a buzzard during the demo derby and crashed it into JMer23's Sandking, blowing him up and out of the competition. You had no purpose to get a chopper other than take pictures but seeing you were that low to the ground I doubt you were taking pictures. Plus the fact we were in the quarry, a place with tons of ledges for great photo spots makes me think you drove to Sandy Shore for a buzzard just to be the center of attention and/or add to the chaos of the derby. Granted, a dump did join the derby after but I did see what it was doing; destroying cars that were already out of the comp just like Robot Wars in-house robots would do (great reference that I enjoyed). You've been warned as the lobby was a bit loose. Please don't do something like that again. If you're going to slack off please do it away from the other players who are taking part of an activity.

Enough with the smacking,
Show 'em that we weren't lacking!

Pictures:


Selfie-first traditions. The cougar is back! Vice City replica of the Sabre Turbo was my first pick to meet up:

De is a fab mercenary - will kill your enemies with text messages of smilie faces:
0_0.jpg

Another nice car ruined by bullet holes - stop lowering your damn rides!
0_0.jpg

This one is tasteful - so glad to see players showing love for the classics:
0_0.jpg

Saw this Banshee at Slime's meet, I'm sure of it and loving it:
0_0.jpg

Father of four Precaution Paul took a wrong turn and ended up in the ghetto where he got shot up for blasting Vanilla Ice with the windows down, luckily he was wearing his safety helmet that he occasionally puts on when driving:
0_0.jpg

Elegy with offroad tires actually looks great!
0_0.jpg

A Merryweather Mesa that's so bright enemies cover their eyes and making themselves easy targets. Great tactic!
0_0.jpg

I always love seeing an Infernus at meets and this one was superb:
0_0.jpg

Color on this is great:
0_0.jpg

Sun came out and I just had to take a picture of that Phoenix again:
0_0.jpg

De hired a cop to keep things calm. Here is the cop after killing someone who was "running around with intent to keep running." Perp was apparently "resisting arrest" - man had earphones on while jogging:
0_0.jpg

My Sabre was impressive but I just had to change when I saw this:
0_0.jpg

Man claps as wanna-be back-stabber player gets knocked the f*ck out by a quick-reflex cop:

This Sentinel looks awesome! Who could be driving such a sweet ride?
0_0.jpg

"Hey bro, can you park it in the shade? My cream for hardcore abs is gonna go all jello if it sits in the sun."
0_0.jpg

A yellow Jackal impressed many:
0_0.jpg

Every meet taking place at the golf club attracts cops. With the cops being a nuisance, we relocated to this famous spot:
0_0.jpg

A nearby rooftop gave me a great angle on the variation of cars:
0_0.jpg

Here I am standing on a ledge and hearing someone climbing a ladder - taking this one quickly, boys!
0_0.jpg

Two Phoenix's, the sweet Banshee and my Penumbra:
0_0.jpg

That red Comet got me hard as well as the black Infernus and the yellow Jackal. So many great cars in this pic:
0_0.jpg

Pretty sure that's death hound with his trademark black and green combo:
0_0.jpg

We were apparently voting for the cars we brought before doing the main event:
0_0.jpg

"Best of Show" goes to JMer23. Congrats! I voted for it and is such a sweet car.
0_0.jpg

Random pic so I can tell a story. De's sister got on the mic when he was gone. She said he spends his time on this game and that the game was gay. I tried making conversation by saying, "yeah, De's pretty gay" as a joke. She replies with, "yeah, he likes men, seriously." De got back and I asked how far in his walk-in closet he was. Hilarity ensued. De's sister got him good. :cookie:
0_0.jpg

You're looking at 100K that won "Best of Show" for the random cars:
0_0.jpg

This Cavalcade is very well done:
0_0.jpg

The wheels on that truck really makes it unique and actually fitting:
0_0.jpg

DAT JAG:
0_0.jpg

Good variety so far. Ignore generic black guy:
0_0.jpg

Generic black guy is shown here trying to steal a car - he's still learning:
0_0.jpg

BMW fans in this game make them look so good:
0_0.jpg

Apparently this guy was trying to walk away from an explosion like Tom Cruise. I then offered wanna-be Tom Cruise stunt men to the nearest Epsilon center:
0_0.jpg

Raptor and I ready to drag race - note the mini cooper on the right:
0_0.jpg

A Banshee? That isn't a car found on the streets...and then I looked around and realized I was the only one with my damn pink mini cooper surrounded by a bunch of sports cars:
0_0.jpg

See?
0_0.jpg

You're still beautiful to me!

Continued from above...

Pictures:


Drag racing started and I got the best view:
0_0.jpg

Not sure if the Banshee is that quick or he double-clutched when De said not to:
0_0.jpg

Racers were patient and waited their turn:
0_0.jpg

Props to the guy in the left lane for driving right under my chopper that was so close to the ground:
0_0.jpg

The Banshee dominating the Elegy again:
0_0.jpg

OH NOEZ! COMPETITION!
0_0.jpg

This man is stealing my spot:
0_0.jpg

Finish photos showing who won:
0_0.jpg

How races were close or not:
0_0.jpg

A few jets roamed around...
0_0.jpg

Some even showed off by "taking part" in the racing:
0_0.jpg

One of the rare shots with no planes in it and the Banshee getting whooped:
0_0.jpg

While snapping pics, I saw my PV icon moving and couldn't find it on the ground. I looked in the distance and saw this:
0_0.jpg

This was the closest race and my favorite picture:
0_0.jpg

The final race was close that Raptor won. Congrats!
0_0.jpg

And this concludes drag racing!
0_0.jpg

G Money was having issues with a truck and I found some dead women behind a truck with a flat tire:
0_0.jpg

I found G Money spazzing out uncontrollably:
0_0.jpg

"Help, I can't stop falling down!"
0_0.jpg

Seeing I was taking part in the derby I took shots on the fly:
0_0.jpg

I wasn't attracting that much attention:
0_0.jpg

Then everyone spotted me and came for me:
0_0.jpg

Props to this buggy for making it in the top 3 - spoiler!
0_0.jpg

First casualty was a Cavalcade:
0_0.jpg

So the Sandkings could climb higher and thought it was a cheap move:
0_0.jpg

My car didn't last long but it lasted longer than I thought:
0_0.jpg

The derby still raging on with the Kings dominating:
0_0.jpg

Rodeo clowns showing up:
0_0.jpg

This man's head was over his car roof:
0_0.jpg

Fog settled in and made it harder to see. I had to get a better view:
0_0.jpg

I jumped in one of the Sandkings and got sweet shots!
0_0.jpg

Here we are ramming a car:
0_0.jpg

I joined the rodeo clowns:
0_0.jpg

VULGAR! Also that man in a grey shirt is dancing:
0_0.jpg

Two Sandkings ganging up on the beetle:
0_0.jpg

Night arrived and just like Robot Wars a house vehicle was brought out:
0_0.jpg

While I'd like to say the house vehicle destroyed everyone, that's actually caused by the buzzard crashing into one of the vehicles - ruining his chance of winning a free beer:
0_0.jpg

The winner of the derby is G Money. G Money receives one free Pisswasser! Slightly used!
0_0.jpg

For most of the meet this man called me ugly. Looking at this picture it looks like he fancies me. I think this man is lying to himself:
0_0.jpg

With a flying truck, the meet ended. We left the quartz with more rumble than it ever had.
0_0.jpg

Don't be so hard on yourself. I can see your interest is more in your Scavenger Hunt than meets. Once you do something that unique car meets just become so stale. My Handyman event was apparently good but I didn't like it so I'm working on minigames to make up for it. You could do a meet soon to make up for your meet if it helps you sleep at night. We all have good meets and bad meets. No one hosts meets and gets good ones, you know? We all have to suck to learn what we did wrong and I'm actually glad you know how you screwed up. It's gonna help you to be better. Think of it as the equivalent of aspiring rappers getting shot to get fame. ;)

Sorry, then. I've edited the paragraph to fit the current situation better. Please understand I'm keeping an eye on both you and jamrock as you were both involved in the killfeed (names showing up when dying) when it happened. I understand the meet was a bit loose but if I let this one slip I'll be wary of both of you whenever I join meets that you guys are in.

Always love reading the feedback and seeing the pictures from these. I had a good time but I agree with Tick on the missed opportunity on the cars we found off the street and modded, would have made for one unique meet and drag that's for sure. That said I still think it went pretty well and im glad Del took my suggestion of the quarry, the jump in the middle makes for some fun stuff (not including me getting too much air and going up in flames in my calvaclade)

 

Anyways, thanks again for the invite and the next time one of these comes around i'll be sure to sign up!

Sorry to hear that the event wasn't up to the mark this time De. I did take part in your meets and you are a great host. Your scavenger hunts are fun like i said in an earlier event's post. Read the feedback from both You and Tick and yes i feel Tick is doing the right thing of looking into the elements that added to the host's misery which resulted in his efforts of hosting a good meet go down the drain. To the elements that ruin such events - It's not fair to the host and others who join looking to have a fun and memorable event/meet/experience so please refrain - just want to put that out there.

I'm really tired so it might explain my next sentence....but what?

 

So anyone that's as stupid as I am; outkast is saying that people who rode in jets basically ruined the meet (or at least the atmosphere of it). To some extend...yes. I think De should assert himself as host more. Putting your foot down is tough but I told Slime (who hosted a meet yesterday) that people join meets to follow YOU. If you don't lead then who do they follow?

I have to agree with Tick. It felt like just another meet up. I had to leave early so I missed the derby but other than the ban on double clutchs, it was pretty typical. I did like the dress up random car thing and I wish I couldve raced my futo.

 

It does feel pretty nice to win without clutching though. Cant wait for the next one!

Im gonna give myself a couple days before i start planning my next meet, maybe my poor peformace tonight had something to do with me hosting the scavenger hunt just two days prior. I dont kno but imma take a few days off and probably start alternating my meets. One week its the car meet and the next week will be the scavenger hunt then back to the car meet and so on.. But i consider all suggestions greatly! I wanna give the people what they want! although i didn't tonight as i didn't even think about using the custom creation cars for the drags untill Tick had showed up with his, which was then to late. But i had asked about using them for the derby and nobody wanted to as they wanted to sell their cars and get some of there money back. But i've learned a lot from tonight and i will defiantly be putting a lot more thought in these features, Which will most likely be turning into themes.

 

**Edit

 

I would also like to add that when i first started planning these meets, I thought we would have the normal type of meet activities and then the Feature would be a unique new event for every meet. But, apparently the "Theme" type of meet is what everyone wants. So thats what im gonna start doing, granted it might take me a while to come up with these things as i am not the best of thinkers lol

I'm sorry for the confusion, but that definitely was not me that brought the helicopter. I was in one of remaining sand kings.

 

Just to stop all the confusion here is a picture with the culprit in the Buzzard and as JMer23 has said he was in the Sandking on the left of the picture and jamrock55 was the player in the Buzzard

Dude... You couldn't have gotten a better shot of the culprit. Good sh*t.

I thought it was an interesting meet, I agree that we should have used our found cars for racing but I'm just be redundant. I did fly in a plane but only after I lost and as soon as someone said it was distracted I landed (not crashed!) and got out to watch the finish of the drag and take pictures. I'm sorry that I missed out on the Derby because that sounded like was the best part. I am very much looking forward to you next event and I'll hopefully have some cash for the car modding.

Cheers

Wow, that's the best shot possible. Great work! :cookie:

Do you record meets or something?

 

My warning paragraph has been edited and my apologies to JMer for being a bit judgmental. I do a lot of warning/blacklisting when attending meets as I want to clear up the car meet community of any "bad" players. When typing up my initial warning (directed at JMer), I felt it wasn't right as I met JMer at a car meet or two in the past and he's a really cool guy. The buzzard thing wasn't a big deal but it's the fact the player in the buzzard didn't speak up or send a text to someone to apologize. Everyone was just confused at what had just happened.

 

If something like this happens at a meet in the future the best way to defuse the situation is to apologize with your mic or via text to the host. Any problems caused should be discussed with the host and hopefully people will learn that the host is there as a guardian of some sorts. If you don't speak up/text the host then everyone will assume something other than the truth, you know what I mean?

 

Glad to hear De will work on his meets and Scavenger Hunt one at a time. The Hunt had 30 items and lasted for....3-4 hours? Such a monstrous event and 2 days later he's holding a car meet. It's impressive but you also gotta limit yourself! I held an event called 3 Days of Dirt where it was 3 consecutive nights of offroading. Offroad meets are such a pain to plan and by the 3rd meet I knew this one was gonna suck - which it did. Don't wear yourself thin by hosting so much.

 

People do like joining theme meets and I've been doing them for a bit now as players put effort into them instead of joining up and calling a sports car. You can go full detail with your theme or just make a class restriction. I suggest taking a theme and see how much you want to go into it; should people dress the part? Will the events reflect the theme? Or will the theme just be cars and we'll do the normal car meet stuff? All works great and I'm sure if you do a theme meet I know it's gonna rock. Can't wait to hear back from you, De. Don't worry about the past meet and look towards the next one. ;)

Yeah I used to record a lot of the K2 car meets and upload them. I just record the ones I join now because you can get some great photos from them when I play it back

Continued from above...

 

Pictures:

 

 

Final race, round 1:

0_0.jpg

 

Final race, round 2:

0_0.jpg

 

Final race, round 3:

Grand winner was RaporSkwee!

0_0.jpg

 

With the competition finished, players still wanted to race so double clutching was allowed and showed us even more intense races!

0_0.jpg

 

The airport is a very beautiful spot at night:

0_0.jpg

 

So much that I took my car on a photoshoot:

0_0.jpg

 

This spot was alright:

0_0.jpg

 

I took the opportunity to steal Raptor from the drag race and do a photoshoot of his car and him as he won the drag racing:

0_0.jpg

 

Background closer/more zoom:

0_0.jpg

 

Other angle:

0_0.jpg

 

My favorite shot out of them all - less grainy. Not sure what's up with my pics at the moment. Is my snapmatic acting up or was GTA always this grainy? Then again I don't play on an HDTV...

0_0.jpg

 

Go Potal!

0_0.jpg

 

And to finish off:

0_0.jpg

 

Back to racing!

0_0.jpg

 

The most colorful 9F I've ever seen:

0_0.jpg

 

What a beautiful day!

0_0.jpg

 

Nevermind...

0_0.jpg

 

Such a gray day:

0_0.jpg

 

This Sabre was great to look at:

0_0.jpg

 

This Elegy was also well done - also note the weird square-pattern tarmac:

0_0.jpg

 

Banshees were used as double clutching in the rain proved to be tons of fun:

0_0.jpg

 

But the Coquette Classic had it down:

0_0.jpg

 

I had many opportunities to take random yet awesome pics:

0_0.jpg

 

This one too:

0_0.jpg

 

I think this is LordRoyy (sorry if it isn't) but I must congratulate this man for co-hosting the drag racing and doing the salute action for the whole time. Thanks! It's a thankless job and many overlook its usage, effort and patience.

0_0.jpg

 

The rain slowly gave up:

0_0.jpg

 

And this pilot could finally see where he was going:

0_0.jpg

 

Missed it by that much:

0_0.jpg

 

"Hey guize, what's going on?"

0_0.jpg

 

So apparently there's this glitch where you f*ck up your car you go faster (yeah, I don't get it either) but you need to do it gently...

0_0.jpg

 

Or else this happens:

0_0.jpg

 

This white Banshee wasn't like the other Banshees. We didn't say anything but it knew it was different:

0_0.jpg

 

With a good 30-40 minutes of drag racing, we ended the meet with a destruction derby:

0_0.jpg

 

It came down to the stretch and Cavalcade and these rodeo clowns:

0_0.jpg

 

"FIRE!"

0_0.jpg

 

In the end, the stretch proved to be the biggest target but lasted the longest. Congrats!

0_0.jpg

 

With the meet finished, the lobby recycled itself into an offroad cruise. We stopped at this lighthouse and I found this weird goat. Others joined me and pointed out other animals. Can you find the following?

 

Goat (smiling sideways with white thing as horn)

Duck (angry eye with white thing as beak)

Rabbit (left side is ears, looking up/surprised)

0_0.jpg

 

 

sorry It's so late (2 meets ago) but I wanted to say that this meet was a ton of fun and I can't wait till the next one for which I am up for GT: cjcool17
