Can someone explain why there's two sets of points on the division results and furthermore why I've been docked 1700 points. Everyone seems to have lost points too, but definitely not over 1700? What I miss? Confused.com

edit: Just having a look through the divs there. Some people have lost no points, some have lost 2000 plus. People that have missed 1 payday or more have lost less the others. Doesn't make any sense.

Ye ^^ sure we will explain that =)

We just implemented the function to delete the 2 worst racedays for each player as announced in the rules.

So:
- if you have missed 0 racedays, you're 2 worst playdays are not counted.
- if you missed 1 raceday, the worst one is not counted.
- if you missed 2 ore more racedays, nothing happens in your point amount.

the points in the brackets are all driven points of every playday you have driven (without the delete of the 2 worst ones)

I hope i could have helped you =)

Let me get this straight. I do not show up for the next 2 racedays and nothing happens.

I see a difference between and ( or )

Supporting not showing up does not make sense to me.

The worst race day is the day where you performed the worst. To be able to rank a performance, a performance must first exist.

Thx for the answer nsbl.

I agree with kaaskie and i think there's a flaw in whatever has been implemented or something has been overlooked.

It would stand to reason that if you raced 5 of the 6 paydays then you can oly receive 3 payday points. The no show does not count as a payday or a worst score.

If you only raced 3 you should only get 1 payday points. Take Erik in my Division for instance. He missed one payday and is now 2nd and I am 3rd and kaaskie is 4th. He has points credited from 4 paydays and we only have points credited for 3. As I said this makes no sense at all. Why is this? Erik should only have points from 2 paydays, the payday he missed counts as zero and a no show. it would seem he was docked about 900 and the 0. His 0 no show day was counted as one of his worst days and we lose 1700. Dafuq?

It seems to have punished those of us that have put the time in to train and actually race on the set time every week and I'm not saying anything bad against Erik, it's not his fault.

It makes no sense that the players that haven't even raced don't lose anything and we all lose thousands of points.

What will happen next week when another payday happens and nobody shows up agaiin. Which of the zeros don't count as the worst payday then? Or if nobody mises another day, Do their zeros count as their worst paydays?

To be clear i'm not bitching and moaning either, I just think this implementation of rules hasn't been carefully considered.

Cheers

the worst playday is personally and not one day for the hole division.

You are right saying that during the season the points reached may not be fair, thats why we added the total gained on in the brackets.

After ALL playdays everyone has the same amount of days and the to worst will be deleted. At the END all is fair! And your training will not have been for nothing

why do we delete the 2 worst racedays for each driver? cause not everyone can show up on every date! We wanted to build a league for casual players, and casual players have sometimes stuff in real life that is more important than a game.

this delete is also a chance for players that have driven all days: they got more chances to reach a higher amount of points: so if you drove all 8 days you could have increased your points // if you only drove 6 days you have to live with the points you became // if you drove less than 6 you will completly miss the points of the no shows.

for your Erik example:
if he races next racedays and gain lets say 900 points he has a total amount of 4840 points. if he does not show up he gain 0 points and stays on a total amount of 3940 points.
He will have been driving 4 racedays (if he shows up or not) so 2 worst will be deleted instead of 1 actually.
Do you understand what i mean?

and as allready said: AT THE END the scoreboard will be correct and without any unfairness.

Maybe we can change to delete 2 racedays for every player immediatly, but i have to talk with the database admin wether this is possible at this point

thx guys and keep on racing =)

yeah ok thx for clearing it up a little and I get why the rule is there. Still I reckon something needs to be done as it just doesn't seem right at the moment. I'm enjoying it so I'll definitely be there every payday, thx

"The worst 2 Racedays will not be counted towards the Season total." see CPL rules.
i think nsbl explained what´s the sense of this rule, but i do it again.
most players don't know in advance if they can drive all 8 playdays .
So you have the opportunity to miss 2 playdays (because you want drive another tournament, because of menstruation or whatever) or to have 2 bad playdays with lack of points.
No show means 0 points.

i couldn't enable it before, because everybody would have 0 Points after 2 Playdays.
I won't enable it later, because you would cry more than now.

Maybe it is a little bit brainmucking (muck = childfriendly and kickfree version of f...) atm, because loyalty player loose a lot of of points. but hey, if you miss a playday now, or you have bad playday with less points than the other playdays, you will loose nothing. you can just improve now ...


Perhaps the first explanation was to technical ....
