Here's the place to discuss anything related to TMF ladder ranking, special "ladder servers", rank limit rules and possible issues you might have with this system.

Ok,

here we go...again.

But, first of all i thanks Florent for his message.

But..
I really tried to play on sundays...it was a pain(to come on a 100k server)...
Sorry to say this, but thats true.

if you ever wanted this or not...i dont know.
The boosters are gone...welcome the new ones(server owners).
Yes they paid enough, to get this servers running(and to be get controlled?)...but thats it?

Now you dont need to be a booster, you only need to run your server on sundays...thats it.

And again as a "normal" players like me, you never get the chance to move up...and when other ppl tell other stories...lies. Nothing else...



Off topic:
Florant, i would ask you a question, if it will ever possible...would there be computer created tracks? That you can play online? So, i dont want masterpieces, but tracks random made, so its for everyone new?

That's the sense of the ladder, or? That normal players (in this way with normal i mean "not high skilled" not serverowner) don't be in the top?
And to your problem with the maps.
As all before, just go and dl a mappack or train online on the servers in the week.
And don't try to connect to different servers, just search for 2-3 RoCs with maps you like and then try to join them.
Or even better, go TMU, the RoCs there normaly not to full or with a short queue and double points ;) Sounds nice? It is ^^
For example, i played last sunday on ET-Champions and there were only 2 players in 1 1/2h who wanted to join that server. So with kick of the last two and with maps which are trainable the whole week on the same server.

Edit:
"normal" players means, not in team and no 100k server.

u said its impossible to join 100K Server...

well thats a lie then :)

You can join almost all Servers when they started...you maybe get placed in the queue, yes. But that happens to all of us...even Server owners


Plenty of Servers to choose from...and you can join 99% of them, unless the queue is full. Which isnt the case very often.

You should really try the "Join as Spectator"-Button ;)

Cant join 100k servers?? all servers full, this last sunday ??
the last hour of the ROC the Tight Fight Server had only 8 players
and no queve at all, so we could play all the time. Telling that the new
boosters is the servers owners is ****. You all have the same possibilities
to play as all the others, go to the ROC server 2-3-4-5 hrz before it starts, and
you get a spot. Expecting to win tracks without practice, and then talking ****
about others cos you cant win a track is just stupid.

You have all the same possibilities to host a server and run your own server, if
you dont get it for free you must pay for it. Just like others, go collect the 80k coppers
and rent a server, put your own tracks and play all you like...

As many others here i dont see the problem, you can find the tracks on tmx, download them and play them all week until sunday.. i dont see any problems. and most of the 100k servers are online all week also, so its the same for all players.

Completely agreeing with Shady there...
You should maybe stop repeating yourself and actually read the other posts, because now we're repeating too.

Everything shaddy said is true. You can't expect to win tracks that you dont know, and complain about the fact that they know the tracks and you don't. There is nothing stopping you from downloading them or practicing them on the server during the week (if the server isn't up during the week, or locked, etc. maybe its best to find another 100k server?).

But I do see where you coming from Wiltern, you just have to find a good RoC server and practice their tracks. Its taken me like 3-4 sundays to find a decent RoC server where you can practice the tracks during the week and that follows all the rules fairly (i.e. one week, I was playing on 100k server before RoC time so I could have a spot right away, but everybody got kicked except the group of 8 teammates/friends when RoC time came up, then admin left (not even LP), and there was no autokick)

It's not all about knowing the tracks lol, thats like saying "don't drive to wales if you havn't been there, your likely to crash!"... even new tracks can be conquered if ya know how to drive...

I think this should be reportet to Nadeo, so they could check servers likt this out, its not the right
way to do it i think. My server is always 8 players and 16 specs, so if the ROC starts the players that are in top 8 when it starts can play the first track. then it kicks 2 players at end of track. I think Nadeo should be strict on things like this.

hi all,
there we are again, 100k servers should be online during the week that everybody can train with others, not only download the mappacks ;-)

It seems to be a reference to this post, but seeing it states "the team may develop" such a system, there is no guarantee.
