Ben is going to be moving around Christmas time, so will have no time heading into the new year. There could be something at a slightly later date though iirc. Don't think that no one wanted an MoE race, it just isn't feasible in it's usual slot.
Wouldn't have been able to broadcast it if same week as last year anyways.
Me and Ben have spoke about it but he is a bit busy with real life stuff and moving across country. When/if it gets planned, you'll see an announcement. Just need to know when its feasible with current time slots.
Lol folks this is basically revival and tune-up of old MoE (before Ben and all the multiclass shenanigance (yes i didn't spell that right)) when cyber-racing was the greatest and obviously we don't need MoE any longer then.
It's actually lovely that NDR boys didn't just take MoE name, rather filling the hole with something good-old-new in a brand new packet and leaving doors open to Ben and MoE to make a comeback any time they want or who knows making competition to them in future with new patch or making merge or you know possibilities are endless.
Baring in mind it's the only open config of the season, as a person who had 22FPS at the start of last GT2WS, which climbed up gradually to drivable 40ish FPS I'd say it's actually the best place to have an open config is a 24hours race. After couple of hours cars get spread out and this isn't so very much of an issue anymore then, whilst if the race was shorter it would pretty much be over right there or in a little bit.
On the other note, FE3 is a little bit ridiculous, or any fern bay track and GTR in a combo for that messure. Would much rather see AS7/AS7R instead for example if you want a twisty track with few slow corners, a lot of fast corners and even extra corks crew challenge with properly allocated anti-cut tires, instead of FE3 ludicrous chicane.
And can we please change the track for the finale. AS4, which was used a number of times in IGTC is basically just endless straights track with interesting mid sector (which isn't even that interesting anymore as we used that level of DF there for ages in IGTC race and MoE 24h so very many times... AS5R/AS6R is way more interesting for a 12hours race if you ask someone who did IGTC/MoE there so very many times and if you're so very much OMFG nooo, not the rev track, then why not give AS6 a shot. Such a beautiful, twisty track, yet fast track, rarely used.
P.S. Before some of you come here and start ranting how great Fern Bay is and how much you love it, erm Isaac mostly ;D or how cool it is to have a race at each on of the LFS tracks, let me state some downsides to this track. It's the narrowest track anyone has ever seen and that is the core of all problems. Well, it wouldn't be too much of an issue if there wasn't for that horrible chicane. Tires are trown there at will and people are killed like in WW2. Yeah, ok, it can be little bit fixed with layout, but still it's absolutely horrible when you think it's only a 2nd corner after the race start, when mostly everyone is still side by side. It's the most difficult track to overtake as well, giving one half chance and baring in mind how narrow it is, quite easily defendable giving only one half opportunity around the outside of T1 to overtake and that only if fuel/tires state is much different and if your opponent isn't really willing to squeeze you off the road out of the T1 or if he's willing to slot in behind in chicane. Anyway, hard to overtake, ok no problem I say, but the possibility that your race can be hampered any time by a driver in front trowing a tire at you (in most cases will be a backmarker not willing to move out of the way soon enough) is absolutely terrifying and very unjust.
Therefor I believe AS7 is a whole lot more elegant solution to the problem.
No, I have an okay PC that is fine on every other combo - as Isaac has said, if there are a lot of drivers struggling with FPS issues then you in turn, without meaning to, alienate a percentage of the drivers wanting to compete. I myself cannot race the 24 hours even though I would love to, purely because of the fact the open config rapes my computer.
