we had two people send a Friend Request to GT Saturday last week, but they didn't join the race. Maybe this week?
be sure to send requests sooner rather than later, and someone will definitely check prior to setting up the room for racing. don't worry if it's hours before the race and it is not accepted. It will be prior to race time.
That's good to hear, Ex. I was meaning to ask how it went last Saturday.
We had three show up on Monday and two of them look interested enough to hang around. I'm not sure how young Max found us, but he may have been a drop-in. It seems that, two years after release, it will take more than a blog post to get some traction with players who are either set in their ways now or who don't know how to find other good drivers.
If anyone out there is sitting on the fence, you can easily join either event and you are assured with help in getting going and with having good clean fun.
that's a nice idea, but even watching a race takes bandwidth from the race so I think for networking reasons they might only allow you to watch if you join...
posting replays of races, however , is something we could do more to demonstrate what the races are like. i need better equipment.
yea posting replays is something I've always wanted to do with greater ease. I need to get a capture device that allows for better quality. I only have a device that will do standard def videos, and they don't really look good enough to make people watch them.
posting GT Saturdays races and many others would be a great way to get people acquainted to what some more organized racing is like.
afterall, if one is reluctant to join, they usually don't get to see what it's like unless they actually do join.
FWIW, there will be people of all skill levels in races like GT Saturdays. Long time racing veterans, relative newbies, and everwhere in between.
If you think you can at least get a car around the track in a semi-controled fashion and can watch out for other traffic and play nice, then it is best to just send a FR to GT Saturday and join a race. That's the best way to get acquainted at this time... just show up!
