Thanks for the encouragement David and it would be great to do live races too. It would be something I'd like to do but there is a couple of issues that I can't help but be concerned about:
If we have the challenges as mentioned and a scenario occurs where player A is 2 points ahead of player B for the championship win, and cannot make it to the last live race, he would feel pretty deflated he could not make it to the live race and player B wins the championship. I know I would be gutted. Maybe if we did a couple of mid-season live races, it won't be as bad.
Another factor would be live race participants. If we were to host a live race, we would need it closing off to championship entrants only. We'd need admins to do that for us - just saying. It might be an extra overhead Coss doesn't need/want for now - only he can comment on that one. We could perhaps see how the first season develops and go from there.
Adjudication - We would need some sort of marshalling at these events if championship points are at stake.
I'd love to have live events livestreamed and commentated. Again, Coss' input on that side of things.
The way we could get around all this I suppose is to make it so that the live races do not count towards the championship points i.e. just for fun? Then we could simply set a time and anyone and everyone is free to join, have fun and log off with that experience.
I am of the mind set of seeing how the first season with challenge events progress. Lets see what interest we get and we can develop the series from there. Start small, develop it and scale it. What do you think?
