Confused by Blancpain Classes

    I watched the Monza race yesterday . First Blancpain race I've ever watched. Great fun but I'm a bit confused by the Classes. I'm looking at the results in the Blancpain app and I see some teams listed as AM Cup, PRO-AM Cup, SILVER Cup, and some are blank (no class listed).

    1) What does SILVER Cup mean?

    2) What do the blank ones mean?

    (I attached a screenshot showing the race results with Classes listed)

    1) Silver Cup is the class of teams that only have Silver rated FIA drivers driving the car. Silver drivers are typically young drivers in the FIA or decently accomplished Bronze drivers, not considered 'pro' yet.

    2) The blank ones are the Pro Class, which doesn't have any driver restrictions. They tend to have a professional driver lineup anyway though.

    Pro-Am is a mix of professional (Platinum + Gold) drivers and amateur drivers with at least one Bronze driver.

    AM class is just a mix of Bronze drivers.

  4. Thanks for clarification. In ACC, how do we get to the next rank/class?

    under TO7000 points --> Bronze
    over TO7000 points --> Silver
    over TO8000 points --> Gold
    over TO9000 points --> Platinum

    But it is still bug. Not working correctly

    You also need to drive 250km I think on the next level to get it. For example, if you reach TO 8000, you have to drive 250km without going down to 7xxx. or something like that.

    I don't think that works at all yet, I have been over 9000 for well over 250km and well over that before at 8000 yet I never moved from Bronze. I am sure this will be fixed soon enough or at least by release, will be cool to see this on peoples cars. At least that way in MP you will have a decent idea of what to expect from someone by the class sticker on their car.

    Also will give the lower class guys something to race for being best in class and to try and work up to the next level.

    Pro drivers are rich people that get paid to drive and Am drivers are rich people that have to pay to drive.

    i think 8000pts can be reached relative easily... maybe i'd change it: over 8000 -> silver, over 8500 -> gold, over 9000-> platinum
    or i'd raise it +500 more. (atm i'm around 8300 with not too much of playing, SA only 61-2, RC only 42-3 currently, CC used to jump between 83-90 without any logic to me)
    however i don't know why my PC rating is only at 88 when i'm well in top100 in all 3 special events.

    PC 99 to PC90 are only for the people who enter top 10 in events. the rest of the mortals, start from 89. So 88 would be the equivalent (more or less) to 98 in previous releases.

    I think it would make more sense like this:

    1st place-- PC99
    2nd 3rd place -- PC98
    4,5,6 place - PC97
    7,8,9,10 -- PC96
    .
    .
    .

    In a pyramidal style.

    and then from PC 89, as it is now.

    Yep that also makes some sense, I think I actually like it. The reason for this change was that huge leaderboards make most of "us" have 98 or 99 PC (now translates to -1), while the new TR, CN, CC values should go like 99 (with 1.0), 95, 91 or so - and having the PC in line with 90 or below will make a lot sense for most of the more serious simracers. For less experienced guys, I suspect everything to be all over the place anyways :D
    And in a nice side effect, the top10 ranks the "special" rating they really deserve

    I totally understand and agree with what you say. I support the idea of having some "rating only for the fastest" as it is now.

    My idea/point is that I think that the most important, unique and rare rating should be PC99, but right now we have the same amout of people with PC 90, PC 95 or PC 99 (unless someone repeats in the top10, i guess).

    in the system I suggested, the top 10 would be granted PC from 99 to 96, and PC 95-90 would be granted to people from top 11-55. Still pretty exclusive as we have over 3K people per event, it is just a....top 1,8%. (we have also had some events with over 10k, which is just top 0,5% for PC 99-90 with the system I say).

    Anyway its just my thoughts ;) just hoping it might help you and give you some ideas.

    ya again I like it - not for 1.0 of course, that'll be as-is while I focus on fix what is not properly working right now (majorly the buildup which is kind of inverse). But for 1.x, yeah, I like it a lot
