[Feedback] Refresh Hotstint Events on a recurring basis

    For the longest time I haven't played racing games. Since finally Dirt Rally roped me in. However, even after several hundreds of hours DR, closed circuit racing never really appealed to me.

    Well, this has changed with these hotstint events, especially the longer one with 30+ minutes. I feel like my driving and consistency has improved significantly by competing in the currently available hotstints.

    I would really like to see these events to be refreshed on a recurring basis with changing environmental conditions and tracks, maybe in a similar way that Dirt Rally does them, for example:

    - daily: single 8 minute hotstint
    - weekly: 35 minute hotstint
    - monthly: set of 35 minute hotstints with accrued rating OR single 2 hour hotstint

    I do feel that a 'week's best' may be a good idea.

    Though what I most stringently would recommend to the devs is to reset the leaderboard when any change is made to tire models, car performance, track layout or physics modeling.

    For instance Project Cars devs have made the critical mistake not to do so after BOP's and tire model revisions
    This has led to lap times that are unrealistic and do not encourage to go into hotlap mode to try and improve the time. (For example for the Ferrari 488 GT3 which performance has reduced after the initial release).

    Not sure about refreshing events, but I think we aren't going to run out of them. I really wish for events in various conditions, that's for sure.

    Please, God, don't have anything switch on a daily basis. Weekly/semi-monthly/monthly may be okay, though i honestly think semi-monthly/semi-monthly/semi-monthly makes the most sense. I love the amount of performance and setup improvements people have managed to make on the NurGP, just because it's the only game in town. Keep things slower, no reason to rush anything, if events get switched daily, there are people who just would never participate because why bother putting in the 2-4hrs needed to really do one's best, if it's irrelevant the next day?

    The special events will be different for every EA release, so unless we change the approach after 1.0 it is "monthly".
    I agree on letting drivers have enough time to sink into the events (even those who can't spend soo much time during a month), I think they will become quite complex and interesting.

    The current leaderboards will close (but play a role later ;) ), so we only have 3 leaderboards to focus on at any time.
    One week to go, so make sure you have given your best when R2 is coming!

    Thanks for the info.
    However, why couldn't we keep the past Special Events, and have a big collection (like for AC1).
    It would be interesting to spend time on a "combo" then, when bored, turning back on a previous Special Event.

    I presume the reason is that it's difficult to manage so many leaderboards...
  8. Minolin

    Minolin Staff Member KS Dev Team

    The reason is more gameplay oriented; having 3 leaderboards for a given time means the competition is high and should be more entertaining than the scenario where drivers slowly distribute their efforts over many, many leaderboards.
    But for sure it's a wise thing to see how the server infrastructure develops, before throwing around with high quantities :D

    Also there will be a bit "more" to be made out of the finished leaderboard seasons.

    Not on the table at the moment. I can see that the scenarios we forge for the leaderboard events may remain quite cool and unique in the end, so we may want to see them playable (without active leaderboard) in the end.
    But while we are developing, we will see many changes that most probably will break the special characters of the events, so again this is something to decide before the final release.

    Wait. Did I miss something? What will the current leaderboards be used for later on? Free DD wheels for the top 10?:D

    I am secretly looking forward for the hotlap event to be ended, otherwise I probably would be hotlaping for thousand more laps just to reach the prestigeous 1'53. It is just not meant to be... :D

    What’s the chance of the first event to run for some time after build 2 for those of us waiting on VR before we can get in to it?

    I really like this idea OP posted. Having certain events that change daily/weekly/monthly to keep the challenge fresh. Specially having the weather conditions change so we would be kinda forced into trying to cope with other conditions on the track too :)
