7. GAMEPLAY RULES
7.1. – Abuses & Exploitation
Exploiting game or map bugs/glitches/flaws (“exploits”) for the purposes of gaining an unfair advantage is prohibited. Exploits that are not specifically named here are still prohibited but will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. Gamer.LK Staff reserve the right to decide what will be deemed as an exploit or abuse.
7.2. – Race Penaltie
Race control may impose any penalties including but not limited to the following
– Post Race time Penalty (Amount to be determined by Race Control)
– Points Deduction (Amount to be determined by Race Control)
– Exclusion from any event.
Any driver deemed to have used an off-track advantage in the process of a pass will be penalized.
All drivers must have Race Control audio channels open, also need to be able to monitor text chat for messages from Race Control during the race.
7.3 – Driver Etiquette
– Drivers are not allowed to move off their line under braking to respond to any move unless there is an accident ahead and need to take avoiding action. Drivers moving to cover off the inside in the braking zone with eventual contact will be considered to be blocking and will be penalised. Race and let race, it will be more fun for all.
– The leading car may make one move to the defensive line, as long as that move does not create an incident. This move must also be made before the trailing car starts their move for a pass.
– Drivers will be allowed to race hard against each other. But etiquette needs to be top class. Incidents due to contact may still bare responsibility on any driver and result in penalties.
– Patience is a virtue – In real life racing it take guts to keep the foot down, in virtual racing it takes guts to lift!
– Race starts can be chaotic. Remember the old saying: races are not won on lap 1 but they are often lost there.
When you spin, please remember to lock the brakes. It makes your trajectory much more predictable. Just sit still and let other drivers worry about avoiding you. Contact due to poor re-joining of the track will have serious penalties.
– No Divebombs. Generally speaking, if you are not alongside another car at corner turn in you should not attempt to pass; the other car has the right to the racing line and will be closing towards the apex. Dive bombing and poor overtaking attempts that end in a crash are going to be penalized.
- Never rejoin the track perpendicular to the racing line.
– If you spin out manoeuvre off track, make sure there are no oncoming cars using real time and car radar.
– A yellow flag is a warning, you need to slow down and prepare to stop should the track be blocked. Passing is forbidden when yellow flags are present. Be cautious and you will be able to avoid accidents.
– A Blue flag is shown when you are being lapped by the race leaders. Be considerate and let the leaders through as soon as it is safe to do so. Drive your race, by all means, but if you can help the leaders please do so. Most importantly, always be predictable and make your intentions clear.
- An acceptable ping is a requirement. Race control reserve the right to remove drivers whose ping will make them a hazard on track.
– Every driver is expected to behave in a manner that is respectful and representative of the series, your fellow competitors, sponsors, etc. Any breach of the behaviour clause will represent immediate expulsion from this series.
- Regardless of any scenario, comments, discussion, or other unforeseeable, we encourage everyone involved to keep the fun factor. This is a hobby at the end of the day.
– The series reserves the right to terminate inclusion of any entry in this, or any future series determined by administration.
