CLASSIC TRACKS HUNT revived10:19 PM 05-Nov-13 : Quote : Report : #

~~~Welcome to CTH (Classic Tracks Hunt) revived !~~~


First of all i want to give a huge tribute to a guy called   cranberries, he's the founder of the CLASSIC TRACKS HUNT. Haveing a read doesn't hurts, he deserves our respect for a great job done.
Now this was a long time ago... may some rules need to be changed.


I ... myself took part at the CTH as well, i loved the hunting.
I liked the way we could influence a track and to be a part of the mainpage through the leaderboards top 10.
Nowadays the leaderboards seem 'empty'... almost dead, but... shut the f*** OFF!
We are here, we are not dead! We can bring back life to that thing!

I was already asking around and the interest is still here!
Let's revive an awesome project!



The idea...
...
Originally posted by cranberries ...

the purpose of this project is to put the spotlight on great tracks
tracks that deserve a greater attention, this means we're here to make specific tracks go classic \o/
...
but this is not an easy thing to do ... you (as players that submit replays) have to have your own leaderbord score quite high to make a difference, and to do that you have to have good replays submitted in the last month on tracks that already have great LB score ... so if you want to help with more than a replay for this hunt, make sure you have great LB score yourself, this way you will bring our suggested tracks closer to classic.



The firts steps to do...
...
Originally posted by cranberries ...

you can start with submitting replays on tracks that have great LB score, here's what you do: open the "find tracks" page on the TMX main page; on top of the list there's a "quick search" button; in this quick search list, click onto "Best Rated For Main Leaderboard"; now the list will show you the tracks with the greatest LB score; play and submit replays on these high LB scored tracks so that your own leaderboard points are high, this way you can increase the LB for our selected track with much greater value and chance ^^


The topic rules...
...
Originally posted by cranberries edited by iMap ...

- we can talk about what tracks we play, but do not spam the tracks with "full" link, just a simple link is sufficient
- the CTH team will choose the tracks to be played and I'll announce a new hunt every Sunday
- do not go off topic
- do not spam your own tracks
- stay friendly



The tracks...
...
Originally posted by cranberries edited by iMap ...

the tracks that will be put under this "LB hunt" must meet these simple rules :

- the tracks must be over 30sec and under 1min30sec
- the tracks must not be luck based or bugged
( that means no crazy transitions, and very smooth for both high speed and moderate speed )

additional guidance rules :
- ...



Some points ToDo: ...
...
o-> I'm looking for some active guys helping to find suitable tracks in various styles (dirt,tech, speedtech, fullspeed). PM me!
o-> Raising LB.
o-> First Hunt starts @ 10. November 2013



~~~Have Fun and Good Luck to all!~~~

I hope this LB hunt will bring together great players and the replays will be awesome and quite close, this is a pure hunting project, give your best and have fun playing, but never stop improving yourselves ... we're maniacs, remember!?

High- or Low- LeaderBoards user? WTF?

Hehe, its not that hard to get into understanding if you are an high- or low- LB(Leaderboards) user...

Go to Leaderboards...

... if you can see your name into the top15 ranks you are an high LB user.
... if you have an average leaderboard score higher than 80k you are an high LB user too.
... else you are an low LB user.

The scores and ranks are depending on general activity of the users...


How can i improve my average score?

You should have uploaded 10 replays within the last 30 days...
... your 10 highest scored replays are counting for your leaderboard score.
Have a read in the 1st post... "the first Steps".


Hint: If you already uploaded a replay to track and its nomore into the top 10 but still showing on the trackpage
you are always able to upload a replay thats an improvement of the actual replay. You dont have to enter a Top10 time
you can always improve yourself!

(on some Maps a rank 12 is still worth 80k LB !!!)


The hunting week:

Originally posted by cranberries ...

/!\ it's very important for us to follow the replays strategy, here it is in 3 simple rules :

1 ... the users with LOW LB score should submit replays in the first days of the week
do not make incredibly hard replays to beat
( so that the next wave of replays
will kick you out (sort of speak)
from top 10 replays on the track
that's because a good replay now,
will make it impossible for the
best LB users to submit theirs )

2 ... the users with HIGH LB score should wait until the first wave of replays has passed
you should submit you best times

3 ... the final day should be a good day for WR hunting
pls submit your best replays very late in this week
( Saturday is the last day for our hunt,
so that's a good day for WR hunting,
no matter if you have HIGH or LOW LB )


- for the LOW LB users : your help is best if you follow the first rule more accurate, be careful not to submit fast replays, thsi is very important, I understand that you might play an incredible time, but that's why there is the 3 rule where you're free to post for WR hunting ... if you want to help us even more, you can increase your own LB and become one of the HIGH LB users, all you need to do is to have 10 active replays with high LB, replays that are not expired yet, because all replays expire after 30 days ...

- for the HIGH LB users :
pls try to keep your own LB score high and active ... it's not that difficult to play 10 tracks each month - at least 4 of them will be for the CTH, so you only have to play an extra 6 tracks per month ... also it's important for the CTH to be successful that you participate every week with a good replay, the track gets a bit more LB if you submit a faster replay.

maybe 30 minimum to prevent a wave of mini hunter like it happens the last time we tried to push the LB.

I'd even say 40 or 45 seconds. Hope you find a good mix between all styles and I do hope everybody who wants to take part here supports every style.

I don't think 40 seconds is necessary, some classics are only 30 seonds long, but I agree no mini hunters built in 1 hour, even though they are fun to build.

I`m realy curious about the track you`ll choose, I hope that the amount of different styles will be equal (not 10F, 6tech & 2Dirt e.g.)
I`m looking forward to this and try to be active

Yes bozz. Here is my idea:
1 FS
1 Tech
1 Dirt
It is fair enought for all drivers.

Nice. I would change tech to speedtech simetimes, because speedtech are more like tech than fs . But It is just my opinion

I'm sure that it's going to be hard motivate more thatn 10 guys for a RPG or trial, mostly they also are not within the rules for the CTH... lenght and huntability.
BUT please teach me the oposite! i'm open for everything. Just pm me. Or post Track here in "short link"

Of course RPG Maps are huntable. And a No just because they are against the rule of length? Ignore that rule and also allow RPG maps, if enough guys want it.

Thats the way we go.. i didn't say NO! We can easily take a 4th track into our lineup, but i wont have a search on them cause thats something i have no experiences.

o There's one or two guys needed which takes the choose for RPG/Trial. Sky and? If you are interested.

we'll at least you respect every other here instead of critizising directly. And yes i would be in instead of driving tech for example.
An please ignore the time limit if we add it to the styles since many rpgs which are longer than 5-6minutes are still huntable,
for example here Paralel Universe from Ign which has some close and great times
