Bahaha I did exactly the same thing to bird on my first ever xgn race

I think it's important to remember that at the of the day what we do is really just a game based around a common interest. For me it's something to enjoy in my downtime to relax a bit and take me away from busy real life shit. The level of aggression and attitudes on the forum and voice chat do sometimes really make it a much less enjoyable environment and experience. We're all human and make mistakes, we're doing the best we can, as is Wally who has to manage this large group of people. Sure I want to understand racing and race etiquette and become better at it, so discussion is always good, but let's just be nice about it  8)

I have decided to wait for the Ryzen 3000 before upgrading.

Just make sure you remember all the RGB lighting when you do  ;D

Made it to T9, was well inside Joe leaving plenty of room, got ploughed into. 

I think I remember this but thought it was Seanus. The car got squirrelly on exit when I put the power down and lost some traction and it moved slightly over to the right. Sorry but had every intention of giving room and there wasn't much I could do; 'ploughed into' doesn't really describe what happened IMO.

I had good pace tonight qualifying 3rd but a few minor mistakes lost quite a few positions.

R1 tapping gb through t1/t2 turned me around and lost 10 or so places. Sorry if anyone else was caught up in that.

R2 was pretty decent I think I came 6th chasing bacculum at the end for a photo finish.

R3 I ran into bacculum. Not quite sure how it happened but he seemed to slow more than i expected in front of me and I was already back on the power and couldn't do much. That lost me a few positions then a  bit later fighting with Mael I caught the grass on the I inside of the final turn pushing me out and into the wall.

Awesome racing all round though.

Pccg do some mobo/CPU combos. Saving isnt huge but better than not. That's what I did when I got my 8700k.

Also Roo, GLQuake!!! I was in a Quake 1 clan and still remember the day I went and got my 4mb voodoo1 3dfx card and launched GLQuake and got transparent water. Was magical.

I upgraded from an i5 6500 to an i7 8700k and got a 30-40 fps increase depending on game. I then replaced the 970 with a used 1070 which gave me more then double the fps of the previous build

CPU can make a surprising difference on fps more than I ever realized.

So what's happening to the 1080ti ?  ;)

Good stuff Roo. Didn't you have a 1080 TI before? I thought that would easily handle 60fps on 4k

Thursday Nights fun racing / Re: Fun run 9/5

May jump on been a while since I've done a Thursday. What time does it kick off and what car? Or just get them all?

Best night racing I can remember having in a while.

R1 had a coming together on lap one into the stadium with Freezer and someone else; no idea who was at fault there but I couldn't safely re-enter and was back in last place in 22nd but made it back to 9th so was great fun coming through the pack.

R2 started well and had a few really good laps side by side with Freezer before he pulled ahead then maintained the gap until the end. Finished somewhere around 6th I think.

R3 was going great up into 4th. Kcender was coming through the field and bird had dropped back a bit behind him so decided not to really fight the inevitable with kcender and keep a bit of a gap to bird, but the draught must have thrown me off somehow and when I braked it all went a bit pear shaped and into the trees. Rejoined in 10th I think and maybe finished 9th due to Freezer crashing out a few laps later.

All in all awesome night.

No idea how Guybrush gets the Ferrari to 310km/h and be 1.4s faster than me.

The rest of us have been wondering that for years.. especially when he's running a single monitor.

Thought I could use my old G27 one but I can't run that with the Fanatec wheel.

Technically if you plugged the entire G27 in with the shifter attached to it, you would be able to use both. Think you can also get adapters for the G27 one too, but I do recommend the Fanatec shifter it feels so much better.

Didn't finish any of the races but cars seem fun. Probably would have helped practicing a little before the night. I do love the escorts but think these would be a nice change.
