Fast Lap Challenge Series
« on: January 19, 2018, 12:06:00 PM »

What is the Fast Lap Challenge Series?

The fast lap challenge is a 7 round series in the game of MX Bikes over 7 weeks using 7 different tracks. Each track will be scored separately with an overall standings being tallied after each round.

Competition Details

Dates

Competition starts on Sunday, the 21st of January 2018 at 12:00am MX-Bikes Forum Time (UTC +0)
Each round Lasts Exactly a Week. The rounds go as follows:
1)   Round 1 – Winchester – 21/1/18 12:00am until 27/1/18 11:59pm
2)   Round 2 – Maryland – 28/1/18 12:00am until 3/2/18 11:59pm
3)   Round 3 – Washington – 4/2/18 12:00am until 10/2/18 11:59pm
4)   Round 4 – Forest – 11/2/18 12:00am until 17/2/18 11:59pm
5)   Round 5 – MXB Club – 18/2/18 12:00am until 24/2/18 11:59pm
6)   Round 6 – Practice Track – 25/2/18 12:00am until 3/3/18 11:59pm
7)   Round 7 – Nevada – 4/3/18 12:00am until 10/3/18 11:59pm

How To Enter

Entry is Free, to Enter a round of the Fast Lap Challenge, simply log in to the MX Bikes Forum and post 2 screenshots of your lap time from the game in the correct forum page of that round. I will be posting a new topic for each round. The First Screenshot needs to be taken in the Testing; Pit; Laps tab like so:



The second Screenshot needs to be taken of the exported lap time file. In the screenshot above, you can see the Export button below the Ideal Lap Time. Once exported, you can find the file in your ‘documents’ folder; PiBoSo/MX Bikes/exports. Open in the file in your internet browser and take a screenshot of the results.


 
Both the lap times in the screenshots must line up correctly. Please see the cheating section of this document to see what are the consequences of manipulating a lap time.
You may only post one lap time in the forum each round. If any competitor posts multiple lap times, only the first lap time will be taken while the others will be discarded.
Any lap time posted before the round has began will not count.
Any lap time posted after the round has finished will not count.

Scoring

Once a round has been completed, each competitors lap time will be documented and scored using the Olympic Style of Scoring. For example, the best lap time will score 1 Point, while the 15th best lap time will score 15 points.
If a competitor does not compete in a round, they will be given the score of last place + 1 for that round.
In the case of two or more competitors posting times that are exactly the same, they will be given equal points and the next competitor will be given points equal to their position. For example:
4th – 1:07:098 – 4 points
5th – 1:07:122 – 5 Points
5th – 1:07:122 – 5 points
7th – 1:07:144 – 7 points

Results will be posted shortly after each round, as soon as I can tally up the scores and count the points.

Cheating/Manufacturing a Lap Time

There is absolutely no tolerance to cheating. If you are caught manufacturing a lap time, you will be immediately disqualified from the series and be striped of all points earned in previous rounds. You may also be suspended from possible future competitions.

Thank you to anybody who competes and shares this around.
This series will only work through community involvement, so tell any friends of yours who play MX Bikes about this series and encourage each other to play.

So any questions?/Have I missed anything?

I was going to leave it open, but if enough people enter I will split it into 125/250Fs and 250/450

Good Luck everybody! If this series is a success, I have a few plans/ideas for future series and implications of the series. If you have any ideas and suggestions, I would love to hear them! Shoot me a PM and we can discuss them. If you wanna hear some of my future ideas, shoot me a PM also and we can discuss them too.

Good Luck!
