will priority for position depend on the time you sent your SRS aswell? (i.e those who make the same SRS spend, the player who sent latest or who didn't submit an amount will be in the lowest position)

I like the default value - however, maybe it can be for a maximum of 3 consecutive races.


Why Penalize people if their strategy is to sit back for multiple races?

Setting a default and sticking with it for a while is no less valid a strategy than changing your value every race.

Inactives really only take away one scoring opportunity per season so I think people are overreacting to them.

Oh and #confirm next season

I think Jim might be right that having tax and this penalty is basically a double whammey. Probably best to have one or the other than both?

Well, something should be done, all the top scorers in race 17 this season were just the inactive people or the at the bottom or both :)

Nah, the tax is boring, especially since it only applies to the last race, the penalty is very creative, Mario's strategy this season banked highly on that(ofcourse the major factor is him pushing at the right times with the right money, thats most important in this game...and also what makes it totally unpredictable :P)

I think inactive people add extra unpredictability to the game(you can see they are clearly capable of winning a few races, but you dont know whether or not to take that into consideration) and I am not very fond of that.

If you want to maintain a low profile for some time, you can perhaps notify the mod about the number of races you would like to do so beforehand, but chronic inactivity should certainly be punished

There will be no tax.

Along with the default value, you will also be able to send more than one race at a time. By allowing this, then this could be used as an equivalent to a default.
For me, the default is more of a value that could be used in case you forget to submit a value. It happened to me one race last season, where I forgot to send and I got the value I wanted.

So, next season there will be 3 races per week.

It will either be:

VOTE GREEN THUMB(up) for: Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 23:00:00 CET (this gives the weekend off)

OR

VOTE ORANGE THUMB(down) for: Tuesday, Friday & Sunday at 23:00:00 CET (this includes both race days)


Race Results will be presented by 16:00:00 CET on the following day.

The more race days per week, the easier to keep in mind the deadlines IMO.

Well, it seems that the clear choice is for a Tuesday, Friday & Sunday schedule.

I will try to get the new season open before I start work today, however it will more likely be around tomorrow at 16:00 CET with a Race # 1 deadline @ 23:00 CET on May 20th.
