First, welcome to the new drivers coming up from C2: Stephen Peeples, Doug Schulz, Chris Brandt, and Tim Burnett.
I will be running a fairly strict schedule, with plots due Monday/Wednesday/Friday at 4 PM ET (US) unless I say otherwise. Plots that are late will not be accepted unless you can show it was actually sent before the deadline. I will respond to every build/bid/plot, usually with a terse “Got it” or something similar. I know some drivers like to add commentary/thoughts to their plots, and I do enjoy reading them, but usually I don’t comment so as to make sure I don’t give something away. If you have sent in your plot but have not received an acknowledgement from me, and the deadline is closing in, send it again. Don’t assume that I got it! Also, even if your plot seems obvious to you, and you plan to use the default, please send one anyway. If I have all plots in early, I will process the turn early, which will help us stay on target for the inevitable delays at times. I will *try* to send out reminders, but I often don’t have the time to do so - do not rely on me reminding you!
If I don’t receive a plot on time, I will use the guidelines set out by Mike to move your car. This plot is designed so that you will spend zero wear all the way around the track. You may not enjoy where you end up with one of these plots.
There are a series of defaults for how I will process your plot. You can override these defaults on a given turn by letting me know what you would like (such as “if line blocked, spend more wear and go inside, get me through corner”, etc.).
In addition, there are penalties for an NPR (No Plot Received) which are detailed at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vuC ... dO7A/edit#
as well as the defaults and other Redscape rules. If you want something OTHER than the given defaults, please let me know.
When plotting, please take into account that you may not be able to get the line/lane/space you are shooting for and have a backup plot listed if possible. Otherwise I will use the defaults and best judgement. My judgement may not be your judgement.
If you have a question about whether or not something is allowed, please feel free to ask. I cannot offer advice, but I will help you with the rules. If you have any questions about what you can and cannot do, please ask rather than assume.
Please know now that I *will* make mistakes - moving cars to the wrong place, mis-interpreting your plot, forgetting to take wear/skill (or taking too much). Please AUDIT what I have done with your car and let me know as soon as possible about any potential issues! The sooner I know about them the easier they are to fix. If you tell me 6 turns later that you should have been one space further up, it’s probably too late to fix.
Below are your assigned cars. New drivers, please select one of the open cars. I suggest giving me a few choices in case your first choice is taken.
Here is the track for race 1 - Yeongam. Please send your 2-point builds to me no later than Wednesday, 2 June @ 4 PM ET (US). The build point costs are found at http://www.lucidphoenix.com/sc/rules/core/setup.asp . Once I have the builds, I will send them out and call for pole bids, which will be due Friday, 4 June @ 4 PM ET (US). Remember when bidding for pole that skill chips are worth 0.5 and wear 1 point. A bid of zero is perfectly legal (and if I don’t receive a bid by the bid deadline, you will get a zero bid). Ties will be resolved using percentile dice on an internet die roller.
