A combination of factors including speed, number/quality of drivers, stability of the team, age of the team, reputation, performance in the test race, and so on. There's no strict formula, just the common agreement of the admins.
Add something to the rules and rumours about a total DQ for a team when exceeding 75% would stop.
"........ did not technically finish the race due to their disconnect on the race's final lap. Once they reconnected, the race had ended and they were not able to finish. Rule M3 states that all teams who DNF will be placed behind all teams who complete the race. However, a disconnect is not an event that causes a DNF under IGTC rules, and therefore JeDi are not considered under rule M3."
"........ also failed to finish, due to being stuck in the sand. As with a disconnect, beaching is not a DNF incident, and SHD only failed to finish because LFS auto-spectated their car when the race ended, preventing a push car from freeing them. Therefore they are not considered as a DNF under rule M3."
This round, a car ran out of fuel 20meters before the start/finish line on very last lap. Couldn´t find the post/thread about running out of fuel and its treatement, but I remember an admins statement has been made earlier. Wanna add something to the rules about it ?
True that every team has to have at least one guy on your #IGTC @ Gamesurge channel ? If it´s the case, it´s not to be found in the ruleset yet.
I got a question referring to my team, n!faculty.
In the past there happened some strange things so now we try a new beginning with n!faculty.LFS. I am the new Co-Leader of the team and I'd like to know our status in the iGTC. Are we allowed to take part in the next season?
