If it helps with what a 3-Lap speedrun would look like, I did one a while back so we have a time already for those interested 🙂

Thread: Category ideas for this game

Started by: Thebpg13Thebpg13

Hi there,
I recently picked up this game again and found that when looking at the leaderboards that it was mainly IL's (Seems fair as it is a racing game after all)
However I couldn't help but notice the main game categories, there's only one and I think we could change that to categories that people could actually speedrun.

Firstly there's the Challenge mode that is in the game, this is broken down in 3 difficulties (Novice, Standard and Expert) now these could be three Misc. categories with the main one being Challenge%.

Challenge% - Beat all Challenge Difficulties in as short time as possible, RTA will be the one that matters here so load times and driving will be important.

Next we have the Support Car Championship mode, now before you think "Wait a minute there's loads isn't there?" Well yes and no and here's why...

The Support Car Championships could be speedruns within themselves and if you wanted to you could have a main category such as "Beat Support Car Championship - Any%" and also since it is all dependent on points and for those completionists like myself - "Beat Support Car Championship - 100%"

The rules for this would be simple, time would start when you select your car and end when you cross the line in the last race for that series. You can use this for the main categories too if you wish.

Looking forward to hearing your responses on this and seeing how you feel about these new categories 🙂

So in the last year I've held a rallying speedrunning marathon based around the Colin McRae Rally/DIRT Series and this time we are back for a third installment with McRaeathon 3.

We are raising money this time around and are allowing all off-road racing/rallying games so if that sounds like the kind of marathon you'd like to be a part of be sure to check out the official thread and submit some of your favourite runs today! 😃

Thread: ESA Summer 2019 Feedback Thread

So this was my first time at ESA and I loved the entire week from start to finish 😃

Most people have covered my points with both streams being in the same a bad idea and also the whole Street Boyz fiasco (Which I loved btw)
Didn't really see too much of the other rooms such as Mafia and the Board Games room as they weren't within my interests but a nice addition to have for those that do use them 🙂

Ok so to mention a few things that I feel need bringing up, the whole rubbish discussion everyone has mentioned I'm on your side and do agree that people should at the very least put their rubbish in the bins provided since most people that attended are at the point in their lives where they are a adult and putting a little bit of rubbish in a bin isn't that difficult.

The tournament room where they had the races and the GTA San Andreas relay race (Which was incredible btw and I'd recommend keeping that for the next event) was a bit tight and could have done with being in a slightly bigger room if possible.

I thought the hotel was nice as was the room that I stayed in but I have a problem, the whole policy with the food and drink stuff. Now I do understand that they allowed you to take food and drink up to your rooms or you could eat them outside as its the hotel and they expect you to eat their food etc.
But when your food and drink is nearly 2x and sometimes 3x the price of what you can get in the supermarkets it becomes a joke and is horrible really to have to pay the extra money for the same thing in the hotel.

A huge plus side to the event was meeting so many new people and old friends from my last few years in speedrunning, it was great to meet you all and I hope we can all meet again soon 🙂

The actual venue location and where everything was located was perfect travelling distance for me and won't be a factor for me to travel to the event again should it be hosted here in the Summer next year which is great 😃

Overall I don't think there's much else to say other than I had one of if not the best time of my life during this ESA event and also I don't think I mentioned the Ice Cream or PopCorn did I? 😉
Well in that case I'll sign this off by saying Ice Cream and PopCorn was eaten and it was delicious so credits to the chef on that one 😛
