Team Manager
« on: May 22, 2017, 12:57:39 AM »
Sup guys, i was wondering, since we already have some outdoor championship, can we make any team we want?

What if i want to make a redbull ktm factory team, would that be ok?

Thinking out loud here, but would be cool if we can make any team (fictional, current or old) and each team can have a limited budget (letīs say 2 450 riders and 2 250 riders) to avoid having a full gate of the same team.

"Contracts" could last for a season, in wich each rider can opt for any team or keep going with his actual team.
Each team can offer a rider more skins, publicity, videos, coverage or anything the team manager is up to offering.
And of course, a team cant change his bike brand, if your team is official, letīs say HRC honda you cant make a HRC kawasaki team, of course that apply to real teams only, Aerial and their sick team can run on ony bike they want  ;D

Thoughts?

What is there to make a privateer want to get into a factory racing team?
is there going to be a slight advantage riding a factory bike?


     These are just a few questions I could ask. Simulating the game like in the Formula 1 style is great. But how about those who does not have the speed yet (for sure we wont get hired by factory teams)? Who's assigning managers to each team? What limitations there will be for the privateers to use skins and other stuffs factory teams uses?

    I believe this is a great idea.

-For now the perks i described first, team skins for rider, helmets, gloves and bike.
-Perhaps the ability to share information of setups for each team, that way you can have "secret" factory setups discussing it with the team
-A custom Discord channel for the team
and pretty much anything a team manager could want to offer, no money of course.
and of course, the good vibes!  ;D

Is there going to be a slight advantage riding a factory bike?
No, all the bikes still the same, you wont get a custom bike with 10+ hp for getting a factory ride.
you can get extra help/feedback with the team tho.

But how about those who does not have the speed yet (for sure we wont get hired by factory teams)?

well, thereīs a lot of factors like wich bike does the team uses? does the rider like it?
a rider that likes the kxf wont go racing for a yamaha team, unless thereīs a shitload of skins/exposure.

and actually we have like 12-15 riders, with a couple of teams we can get everyone on a factory ride, and if you doesnt get one, apply yourself, go wilson style in a stock bike and earn a ride!

Who's assigning managers to each team?

i was thinking, that anyone can be a team manager, each team has one team manager and the team members can help him with the skins or thatīs up to each team.

But thereīs a catch, i can go and make the Team Honda HRC, but because i founded it iīm the manager right?
ok, then the catch is that managers doesnt race, i cant be the Honda HRC Team manager and race, that would occupy a spot in my team reserved for riders only.

so choose, make your own team and dont race or get a team to hire you, or just make your custom skins and race as a privateer!  :)

well, of course we can discuss this and i would like ot hear everyoneīs oppinions!  :)
itīs just for fun, hope you guys like the idea, cheers!

Fun idea.. But what would the manager actually do?

I'd be more interested in doing fictional brands / teams like Aerial have done. I love the idea of limiting the team to 4 riders but would allow them to sub riders if someone couldn't show up (I.e a 250 rider could take the place of a 450 rider).

An option would be that a team could be run by one person or could be a team effort with a rider taking the title of manager, as my biggest doubt is anyone will want to play the part of manager if it means they don't get to ride.

Aerial exist since MXS. Like.. 5 may be 6 years now ! i always been the manager and i always ride  ;D
In MXS the manager just decide of the brands he want to use and make the skins. If the riders like the skins and brand.. he ask to come in the team and the manager make his selection. It's that simple :)
It always worked
