the only problem of that is, that 300 peolpe want to drive in 6~7 100k server where only 8 persons can drive

i have to wait a lot when i want to make points.

i remember i raced 6 tracks and got 3 times the first place, 2 times 2 and the last one place 4 then the time was over...

i can drive fast and faster there is no way sorry :/

sometimes u have to wait 2 hours until u can drive

Maybe go on the server 30 mins before it opens as a 100k server?
Then you are right in the start in the race and could show you skills instead of 2h waiting.

That's why servers should loserkick more players for a faster player rotation. But try telling NFS that.

Nadeo doesn't give that as a rule.
You don't even have to have Aseco or XAseco with FuFi plugins running according the rules...
So you can boost as a clan to make a 100k server and just enter many hours before the server will change into a 100k server.
I am glad to see though that many 100k server are doing differant, like mine.
Although the auto kick of worst players will not offent admins if you set that to false in FuFi plugins.
I think there is much work to do for nadeo if they won't to make it fair for all, I think nadeo has to make several 100k servers and not like how it is now.

This was just my thought and nothing else, didn't want to attack nobody :roflol:

I agree with Ouwe.
And next to it i think the times for playing the
sunday server could be optimized globally - say in timezones -, but on the otherhand, players desperately want to be on top would race all the open servers throughout the day.

Zooz, anything against expressing opinions?
Please dont be, there was nothing offensive there;)
It still the choice of each of us to keep playing or resigning.

It's easy to understand,
viewtopic.php?f=132&t=18508

and these are only United server, they get more than 500 pts,
so you lost rank because they beat your rank.

The hole Ladder is now mixed who was <90k
Sunday was a crazy day :D

this system dont work

player with 90k or less cant make enough points on sunday to get over 90k on monday, today they remove 1200 points from 90k players

nadeo say me, how to make more then 1200 points in 3 hours? stop the time?
a guy woth 90800 points has now 89600 and all player with less then 90k can catch him easily

(i have united too)

By being fast. Not everyone can fit in the top 100, only the fastest players who gain the most points do. So, drive faster and gain more points. Isn't that the whole idea of a ladder? It's quite possible to gain 2000 to 2500 points in one RoC if you're good and have around 90k points.

I bought united because it was fun and i wanted to support nadeo but then they came with the idea of reducing points :s wake up, let them make servers beyond 100k instead of taking points!!

for me the fun's over...
