a World Cup?
« on: January 03, 2014, 11:25:30 AM »
Could we do some sort of Race series country vs country?
A bit like the old Trans Atlantic series in the 70s and 80s.

I think that a country vs. country race might be a bit unbalanced since some countries are better represented than others. As for a world series I expect that one for every class will be organized this year similar to that in 2013.

This all depends of course on how stable GPbikes and the servers will be in Beta4. The bugs and game crashes are the ones limiting the amount of competition, as for the players I guess there are enough willing to participate in a championship with regards to last year.

A easy way to represent your country would be to have a selection of national flags for the default helmet   ;D
They could be used for any race

I think this is a great idea! ;D And yes, some countries will be more represented than others, but hey, it would still be great fun! ;D 8)

If a table of current results was posted, it might even encourage more riders from countries less well represented to take part?

Maybe PiBoSo could integrate this in the game. That you have to select your country in your GP Bikes profile. We could have a country leaderboard with stats (players/country, races won, races lost, championships,...! :D
