It appears that AC is not the Sim we will be moving forward with so we need to get our plan of attack together for the future.

The low turnout reinforced my belief that AC is not where it is at for league style racing. I have discussed re-starting the rF2 league (See here - http://vscr.createaforum.com/rfactor-2/re-starting-of-rf2-league/) Guy is likely going to move on with his plan for PCars (http://vscr.createaforum.com/project-cars/pcars-retro-series-not-another-dry-track-cookie-cutter-series/?topicseen) and I wish him the best of luck. Both series will be run under the VSCR banner. If someone else wants to continue running AC as a VSCR league event that would be great, however, I dont believe it will be either Guy or me.

I believe we can run multiple series on multiple sims. Guy has shown that he has the drive and experience to run a league. I expect that PCars will have a growing following. I think I can offer alot of skills that will be attractive to the league in rF2. Hopefully we can get the new series and schedules worked out so the people who want to take part in both series can.

If anyone has suggestions now is the time to speak up. Lets build this league and plan for the future. VSCR has been around for a couple years now and with good leadership and skillful execution of our plans we should continue to grow.

VSCR. The best place for clean and competitive racing.

We should consider keeping an AC pubby MR server for A + B ratings only.  At least we keep a presence in AC.

I have understood that it's not that easy to keep server open without some management. Not worth the hussle I think. There are plenty of "pubby" servers in AC anyway. If we are not going to use it for our league races then what's the point. Better use your energy elsewhere.

I agree with Matt. I am not entirely sure my computer will handle 24/7 servers for Teamspeak, rF1, rF2, and AC + MR. I could be completely wrong. I dont see any benefit to having an AC server online. The one we had up was only visited by our members, and very infrequently at that. I'm not inclined to maintain an AC server simply to keep a presence in AC. we can agree on a pubby server to invade if we feel the overwhelming need to play AC. Also the MR service has a central repository, so your MR ranking moves from server to server with you.

It'd be nice if MR came to rF2.

I completely agree. MR has been a fantastic piece of software for AC. I thought there was something like it already (rFactor Rank or something). I'll have to look into it.

Slightly off topic, but is there something akin to Minolin's Helicorsa app for rF2?

My Understanding is that there is no equivalent to MR for rF2. I would hope that once it has been developed for AC it will be moved over. However, I suspect that some of the issues may be the data that the program needs to have access to. But rF2 is pretty much and open book so this may not be an issue at all.

It may be more that there is not nearly as much online pickup racing happening in rF2 compared to AC so there is no reason to have an MR like rating system.
