1. How do Ladder events work?


General Information:

  • Frequency: Ladder events will not take place on a regular basis. See the events page to find out how you can find oncoming races.
  • Number of races: Each event have exactly 10 races.
  • Cars/Classes: Same car for everyone! Either Random Cars, or Exclusive Cars. For Random Cars the car-pool includes all cars from the Plus Pack. If the event title has a “Stock” in the name, only Re-Volt Stock cars are in the pool, but no Custom or Dreamcast cars. If it’s an Exclusive Cars event, one specific car (as listed in the event name) will be driven. Visit this site for a complete list of cars.
  • Tracks: Only stock tracks and tracks from the Plus Pack will be chosen randomly. Visit this site for a complete list of these tracks. R/M/RM versions will also be driven! (Maximum one of each type per event.) All exceptions will be stated in the schedule.
  • Point system: For the event results, players’ ranks are calculated by their average points. For each race, the players get points according to the following system:
    • Place 1: 12 Points
    • Place 2: 11 Points
    • Place 3: 10 Points
    • Place 4: 9 Points
    • Place 5: 8 Points
    • Place 6: 7 Points
    • Place 7: 6 Points
    • Place 8: 5 Points
    • Place 9: 4 Points
    • Place 10: 3 Points
    • Place 11: 2 Points
    • Place 12: 1 Point
  • Ranking: For players to be qualified for ranking, they have to finish on a minimum of 5 consecutive races, otherwise they will only be listed at the event results and will not get any average points or Kudos. At least 8 players have to be in the events results to get the event counted for the Ladder. If this limit won’t be reached, the event will be skipped and also not listed in the Past Results section.

Session settings:

  • Connection type: P2P
  • Number of players: 12
  • Laps: 4
  • Mode: Arcade
  • Pick-ups: Off
  • Auto-kick: On

Disconnection rules:

  • No race restarts will be done.
  • Players disconnected during races are asked to wait for a free slot if there’s none at the time.
  • If more than half of the players experience disconnection during a race, the race will be done again.

Handling of P2P-issues:

  • A player may not see other players driving or be seen by other players due to an issue with peer-to-peer. The host will then try to solve this by asking affected players to reconnect the lobby. Please follow instructions.

Etiquette:

  • No chatting during the race!
  • After finishing a race, please limit all chatting to a gr until all players have finished.
  • Avoid pushing/ramming others by full force, but remember that it cannot be judged properly and may also be caused by lag. Play fair!
  • If you are behind for one or more laps, be careful with racers who are going to overlap you. Slow down and let them pass without interfering them. Again: Play fair!
  • Be nice to other players in both chat and voice chat.

 

2. Tell me more about the Ladder!


  • The Ladder won’t be resetted – forever.
  • Every events result will be added to the Ladder after the event.
  • The ranking will be done per average points.
  • Statistics (attended events, races won,…) are always up-to-date.
  • Players which attended less then three event and didn’t attended for more then 10 events, will be marked as “inactive” and will be ranked at the very end of the Ladder. If the player joins another event later on, he will be activated and ranked again.

3. What is a Season?


  • Seasons take place at a not regular schedule.
  • One season contains exactly 10 events.
  • At the end of a season, there will be final season results.
  • A players final season rank only counts, when he attended at least 5 events from the ongoing season.
  • Players can gain a lot of Extra-Kudos, by attending a season.
  • When a new season begins, the old season results will be archieved and a new (empty) season table will be generated.

 

4. Achievements/ Kudos 


General information:
