or inside of the game:

The format will not change from last week, so the most Miles Raced in a 30 minutes session will decide upon final standings. Seems like lack of frequent updates has got some of you confused, so we'll aim to make updates every hour, during the whole duration. If you are looking for tips on how to approach this event, please browse this thread and you will definitely find some good ones  :)
 
Good luck in  :rolleyes: guys!

I'm sorry, but seems like the automatic results delivery is not working right now. :( 

 

If something changes we'll post the current results right away, but if not then please be patient untill approximately 9AM PST (18:00 CET, 5:00PM BST), maybe earlier.

I think this is from the first time I was there and I was already at the end of the session and did maybe the entry lap before the session restarted  :wacko:

 yes, first session I received is up first, so this will get updated as the day progresses.

Like a hotlap, only if you beat your previous sessions miles will your info be updated,

 

Stay tuned

They will count, but do it at your own risk. If that affects your final result in a negative way - please don't complain.

 If game dont dq you after you enter 15. lap, you can make dosen of laps if your friend,for example, stuck in sand beside track in that last fast lap, or drive extremly slow so you can overtake him few times etc

 

The format for these events is really bizarre in my opinion.  Basically, the winner is the guy who figures out how to keep the server from advancing to the next session.  Like vaskezzz said, it's not the guy with the fastest lap, the most free time, the most skill, the most luck, or the most setup knowledge who wins, its the one that keeps the server going, lol.

I agree with vaskezzz and acerockolla.
I mean, I set 15 laps from 2:08.9 - 2:09.3, so maybe I am even the fastest driver on average laptime in a 30 minute session, and still I'm not even in top 10, so there is about 5% skill needed and 95% working together with other drivers to keep the server going, which in my opinion shouldn't be the purpose of this event.

Can just agree with both of you, about the times Pirat and I also ran 15 laps, on 2:08s and low 2:09s and we are barely on top 10 so far.

acerockolla, pro_drifter100 and RaZoR, all I can say is that the purpose of this event and format was to give as everyone a chance to get into prizes. There are many drivers on the list above, who usually don't have any chance with you, but thanks to this format - they can actually beat you and win a nice prize.

I'm upset with that form of event, not because I dropped some places (I was expecting that so no surprise:)) but because what happened in the last two sessions. We as everyone know "extended" them and that the funny part the same players the same methods same server and different time was added... the difference was huge because more than 3min. It ended that I did less miles today than yesterday but today I did a way better stint. So it looks like the event is based on luck and if you're not lucky the server will give you less time its disappointing

 

to sum up this event for me is waiting for that one lucky session when server gives you more time than usual

Sikham, yesterday I did 15 laps around 2:09:0 average laps, around a 32 minute session because I crossed the line around 29:50 on the 14th lap and today, I did 14 laps but 9 minutes of circles, so around a 38 minute session. Yeah, the game wasn't made for this.
