Basically the problem is that I'm not a professional driver and I have to go to school the following day after the race. At least for me racing is still just a hobby and if it has negative effect on my studies I may have to decide not to do the race.
Woohoo, a complaint thread. I like complaints. :woohoo:
People who whine about wind are either noobs who have no idea how to drive or hc nolifers, who get totally lost when their perfected braking points and driving lines suddenly don't work if there is even a minimal change in the driving conditions. The ability to adapt to different situations is part of being a good racer and therefore I think that wind in LFS races is a good thing. Of course it's clear that the way wind currently works is not the best possible and it should be improved, but still; it is same for everyone after all.
In general, I think that Deko/NDR are doing great job running these series. Even though I dislike some of their decisions and think that the admining is often very biased, it is still much better compared to some other online games. For example World of Tanks; they have multimillion budgets for their professional leagues and all kinds of fancy stuff like big offline finals with money prizes and cool live streams with studio commentators. Still, they suck. They seem often to have no idea how their game works and the admins' decisions are usually either totally random with no sense or then they just completely ignore the complaints. Compared to that, NDR's events are very well organized and that's why I appreciate the job Deko is doing.
EDIT: btw the starting time of the 24h race (16UTC) is probably the most retarded thing ever and it should definitely be made like 3-6 hours earlier.
New 7v7 team battles are the best thing ever and also the fastest way to grind huge amounts of credits. Making 50-100k profit every 2-5 mins when whacking noobs with premium tanks is just pure awesomeness. I love this thing.
