The leader mode with three laps map
A player needs to win 3 maps to win. To win a map, a racer need to win the race.Monomap leader mode
1vs1vs1vs1. One map of three laps. Only the first get one point. The first to be at 5 points win the match.
It makes 9 because the remaining players continue to battle for second and third place. The race does not stop when the first one reach the limit (like in any race btw)
Racing competitions sometimes have only one map (ski, cars, bikes, run etc.) I don't say that boring is a bad argument, but if it was the only thing that makes the mode a trouble, I am not sure it is valuable against: no random of maps like people want to avoid, no loading/warm up.. this is boring, no too much training, more easy for spectators to understand the race etc.
For the fact that you dislike other drivers fighting for the remaining places, loot at this post:http://www.tm-forum.com/viewtopic.php?p=143909#p143909
I already suggested that you can make additional run to split the equals.
but another possibility is also to reduce the number of points to 4, to enable the catch up from #4 over #2. This way, the match will last between 12 and 15 rounds of 3 laps. Which I prefer as you can guess.
This mode is designed on the team alternate style I made some years ago.
I need to put aside your accusation that we designed the cup against Frost (even before he won) But if you could apologize on this, I think it could help. I take it for granted that you discuss the mode in order to find a solution. I say this because you made a good step with suggesting a finalist round on each map instead of only the end. However, if it is not the case, I really would like you to avoid making losing my time and make this discussion a dead end.
