The Official BATracer Thread

This thread is for discussions related to the Ultimate Guitar BATracers.

I have decided to create this thread, as it's far easier for all the people involved to just sticky it and see when progress has been made than having to check the Official Group all the time.

Although the official group may be better to still be used for registration processes, keeps the riff raff out...

So, here's some info atm.

Current Season : 10
Current Champion : Korzack
Current Sign-Up Thread :
Current Game :
Hall of Fame

OFF SEASON


Current registration

Well divid3d has been saying we used to clutter the official F1 thread up with BATracer talk, so I figured we ought to have a new thread, and since I was bored out of my mind I thought I'd make it

I'm quite interested in doing an F1 2010, provided they've modelled the car performance quite well, there's only a few teams that would suck to be in, and we usually don't have enough people for that to be an issue!

aye, 2010 would be quite cool - I did like I think simsimius's idea of one-man teams, if we have wind up with few enough people, we could try that in 2010, drawing cars out a hat like before... Okay, that dooms me to Hispania, but the hell with it

Same, I only fire the site up for the UG games now, fed up of the cherry pick system meaning I'm always stuck at the back, and then people wonder why I've one of the highest AWOL rates on there. Think I was 4th, last time I logged on...

I kept reading it BA Tracer.

British Airways Tracing didn't seem too related to UG.

That seems like a cool idea.

We have 12 teams, so if we 12 or less participants, we could do that [maybe give lower 3 teams a boost to be on the same level as the Toro Rosso?].

A random selection would be also be best.

I played a '10 game a while ago as Lotus (Sotul in BATracer speak ), it seems to be pretty accurate to this year. Going by my results at least

2010 game would be cool. The new teams are a bit faster than IRL, but it does seem mostly realistic. And a random draw would be best.

Don't see why not? I'll start a thread up on the group, and mirror the list in the first post here.

Do we want to do F1 2010 for sure?

edit - sign up thread here . This will be mirrored in the OP and my sig ASAP.

Got 12 people now, I'm gonna check through the 'regulars' see if anyone's missing. How big a field are we interested in fielding? I'd rather 12 consistant users than going for 16 with 4 people who are gonna bugger off after the first race...

edit - Also means if we do F1 2010, won't get stuck with pants teams. We can use Ferrari, RBR, McLaren, Mercedes, Renault and Force India. Or a team decides to go for Williams/Sauber they are more than welcome!

I notice Will Thompson (Death_switch), Kieran Sears (Demonsheeps friend), Sarah Ball (Demonsheeps GF), Michael O'Brien (Khann) haven't signed up yet. So might be worth PM'ing to find out?

aye, sounds good. If we can get 16, that means the existing grid's sorted, without having to feel pity for lapping people in Vi - I mean, "Maiden" cars
