Title: The 1st Time Trial Series Competition - Win Great Prizes!
Post by: AndyT on Feb 17, 2012, 12:00 pm
(http://i726.photobucket.com/albums/ww266/CookieWNGAT/ttcomp.jpg) (http://i726.photobucket.com/albums/ww266/CookieWNGAT/ttcomp.jpg)

We are excited to announce the launch of a great new competition that requires nothing more complicated than playing
the TimeTrials in GT5 with a chance to
win some great prizes!



Rules of Entry:

All you have to do to register is put your name and your PSN ID in this thread.

Registration closes Midnight of 21st March 2012

Once registration is closed, a PSN friend request will be sent from the competition account. You need to accept this request and remain "friends" during the length of the competition for your times to show up on our leaderboard.

There is a limit of 100 people that can register for this competition, due to PSN/PS3 limitations.

Round 1 starts with the TimeTrial that begins 22nd March 2012

You must play both of the TimeTrials (not drift trials) that appear in the Online Challenges section of GT5, new ones are released approx every 2 weeks. Both races' results will be counted.

The Series will last for 10 "events", with each "event" consisting of the 2 TimeTrials released every 2 weeks.


Points Scoring & Prizes:

Once each TimeTrial finishes, the Top 3 times for each particular TT will be awarded a Year/Level ticket of their choosing.

Points are only awarded to the Top 10 positions in each Time Trial, as follows: 1st=10, 2nd=9, 3rd=8, 4th=7, 5th=6, 6th=5, 7th=4, 8th=3, 9th=2, 10th=1

A "running score" leaderboard will be kept updated and displayed in this forum.

At the end of the 10 TimeTrial Series, the following prizes wil be awarded according to final places in the points Leaderboard:

1st  : $55 PSN credit
2nd : $30 PSN credit
3rd : $15 PSN credit

Places 4th - 10th will receive "In-game" prizes along the lines of cars/tickets, etc.

In the event of any "tied" positions in the final points leaderboard, those positions will be further separated by counting the number of 1st places that those positions had achieved during the whole contest. If further separation is required, then 2nd places will be counted, and so on until a separation is achieved.

That's it! Good Luck!   8)

Do you keep one list with a mix of wheels and DS3 times?

This competition is a good challenge for me to learn to drive with my DFGT!

Good moment :-)

Keeping it simple for this 1st competition series, so they're all in the same bag. For some races wheels will be better, for some races controller will be better... it will even itself out over the weeks.   8)

Wheel guys can flip depending on the race...DS3 guys have no choice.

Post by: AndyT on Mar 19, 2012, 09:31 am
Unfortunately with only 12 entries so far, we can't reallly justfiy running two leaderboards for wheel / DS3. If we had 50+ people, then yes.

I can't use a DS3 for GT5, it just feels too strange, because I drive for a living I'm too used to holding a wheel.

Title: Re: The 1st Time Trial Series Competition - Win Great Prizes!
Post by: Outeke on Mar 19, 2012, 12:13 pm
Of course it isn't important.
The fun we get out of it and me learning driving a wheel instead of a controller.

So expect improvement in place while we move through the series! lol or not...

I didn't choose to participate for the prizes, but I haven't managed a clean lap, not with wheel nor with controller.

soooo , whos using the ferrari or the lambo for the italian trial?. ive found the lambo is a bit more stable under acceleration but i think to tame the pony will be a faster time.

Not even tried that one yet, concentrating on the other one atm, can't believe how slippy that track is with those dumb-ass tyres... one day PD might give us a seasonal that doesn't require you to use crappy tyres and listen to a lap full of tyre-squeal.   ???

If we added each other we could compete in real time but I think that would spoil the surprise. I like not knowing how bad I've done.

If we added each other we could compete in real time but I think that would spoil the surprise. I like not knowing how bad I've done.

That's kinda the point... I'm not looking at what other people have done, I'm just gonna set my best possible time and see what happens. If we start showing times achieved so far, before the round closes, people might see times and not bother trying any more. Just set your best time that you think you can possibly do, and remember the whole competition is decided over 10 rounds, a total of 20 time trial races.   ;D 8)

The other side of the coin is that a live leader board can spur you on to set a better time if you see that you're falling behind.

I agree with both options.

For sure I get a drive when I know I can beat somebody with tens of seconds lead.
On the other hand, a surprise would also be fun!
