For me it is more about the "run" length, ie the time to reach the finish. The rule was thought essentially for TA and Rounds.
Ask directly by MP to Alinoa, specifying clearly that you speak about Laps mode with serveral laps, and an idea of the Laps race time, despite the fact that the laps themselves are 20s to 40s.

The ladders points won on a Trackmania United Forever server are now multiplied by 1,5 instead of 2. This new dichotomy should enable to get a better balance between all environments. First post edited.

<3 Nadeo ...You guys are awesome ^^

Nice to hear that Alinoa, good measure from Nadeo. Thats a lot more fair to Stadium players, even if they have United but only want to play Stadium. A good balance should be keept now between all players and envoirments. :lovetm

Yeah, today just opened another coast only RoC server with very easy maps, even too easy for 90k for my taste. The big competion maps rule doesnt seem to count anything anymore :?

Well, it only opened in this form today, we didn't spot it before! I'm pretty sure that server is violating rules (if the tracks are unapproved) and won't be there in the same form the next week.

Instead of having to play for hours to get your "stolen" points back, practice to become better so that earn more during the RoC race.

I dont want more Points. Because, i dont have time to play every Sunday.

I have 90k and thats enough for me. My acc should stay at the 90k. But this is not possible!

If you stop playing or play less time than other players, you cant expect to be in front of them, that simply will not be possible or fair to that players that gain more ponits than you do! :mrgreen:
