Well since I stumbled upon it.. MNK launches "Mestarisarja". The winner of the whole series gets 200€, 2nd 100€ and 3rd 50€. To enter a single race it costs 3 kredits (8 kredits = 4,90€). Additionally, there are satellite races where the winner will win a s2 licence and the top 3 will win 9 kredits each. Very confusing indeed.
The calendar is a mix of all tracks and cars. You can see the calendar here.
Right. I watched the (first) thingy on tv today and wasn't really impressed. They showed a few clips of the race but mostly concentrated on the host's face while he was commentating. They managed to make LFS look crap, no shift-f, loads of lag, awful skins on the cars... plus a boooooooring race as it was only 4 guys on track.
And to top the bloody crap, one of the fellas was doing over 1:14 laps in the immensely long 4 lap race. Though, Jesse managed to do 12.94 with the setups they weren't allowed to change too much IIRC .
Anyway, the general look was quite arcadish. So well done (Vic?) for promoting a serious simulator
Just to bring this up again, I haven't looked on the maailman nopein kansa site before. But now I did, I'm pissed off. Not a single mention about LFS, you can buy license from there, not a single mention about scavier or LFS. And there has been so many finnish fags thinking that this is a finnish game. Most of these are speaking finnish in the servers like everyone in the server was finnish. Also the finnish ppl acts like an ass. I'm talking about the newfags who doesn't know Sh*t how to act on racing and AARGHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!
E: Any other thread where I could bring this up a little more where maybe scawen would explain wtf is this sh*t..?
Well what teh fook were you expecting? You must have seen the adverts, it's being marketed as mtv3's online game service. Not a serious racing sim.
How I see things is that there will always be a seperate LFS and MNK communities. Luckily, a few people have stumbled upon the Finnish LFS community site (or even lfsforum, :schwitz and I'm sure those few smart ones will brighten up the community with their new enthusiasm.
ps. Too much compression in that flash video and no FSAA on screenshots. It's just that when LFS is not exactly the most modern looking game out there, these things don't improve the impression on visuals.
