Okay, it´s really enough now.

I pay 40 Coppers for entering the server and what happens?

In the playoffs, you change the time of the matches!
In Round 2, I was in Match 3-5 and it says the match is at 21.20.

I thought Ok, I´ll come later and I went afk. Now, at 21.08 I looked at ManiaLink Page and saw my opponents with 100 points!

I was too late because you started the match earlier.

Now what will I get? Maybe 5 ****** Coppers.

I want my coppers back! :evil:

Just a shame! >.<

Seeing 3 other players really don't take big bandwidth, really, so if you anyway have so much network problems which can't be resolved on your side, then you have to do with it, or not play online competitions.
Hi Slig! :D What settings do you recommend specifically? 3072kb upload and download? or 3000kb? Or different for upload & download? I would like to try this as well, and see if it helps me with the lag problems not only in ManiaCup but other places as well... :thumbsup:

Did you want to go to final after midnight ? I just set back same hours than in previous DailyCups...
I understand that it's not cool for all. Don't worry, you'll get coppers back (all those who missed the 2nd match).

3000Kbps ? what connection have you ? :shock:
I would say, max half your measured up and down connection rates if your your connection seems good.
If you have network lags, reduce it as lmuch as necessary to reduce the cars jumping (essentially the download rate if you see cars jumping, and essentially upload rates if others see you jumping). If too low you will probably see too much inacurate cars positions. It's up to you to test and find your own best values ;)

It's the way maniacup handles payments, it just uses the Pay method on a dedicated server ;)

It's not always immediate because i check if all seems good before starting it manually (i don't want to have some error, like on beta4, which costed me several thousands coppers...)

My bad, I meant 3000 bps or 3072, didn't proofread good enough i guess. :D I've been testing it for a few days now, thanks for the advice. :thumbsup:

Special event : ET-GC Style
The main ET event UL5 is finished (except the playoff final which has been splitted on 3 weeks and so is still not finished...), and before the next main ET event (SL6) begin, let's use the wednesday evening for some special ManiaCups ! :thumbsup:

This special, 'ET-GC Style', will be on 3 maps from the ET-GC6, and sponsorized by ET and ManiaCup (!). The 3 maps are 'tms' ones, a 'ET-GC Style 2' should come 1 week later on 'tmo' maps, and perhaps a 'ET-GC Style 3' on a mix tms/tmo/stadium maps if the SL6 is still not started. :D
* the playoff matches will not be in Cup mode but in Rounds mode (similar to GC6, but with 8 rounds on each of the 3 maps, motogp points, 16 players, 8 qualified).
* 3 maps, so the qualification need to make an official time on each of the 3 maps !!! Your global qualif time is the sum of your 3 maps qualif times !

Enjoy ! :D

If the Daily cup is for beginners to medium skilled players, how come I see experts playing on them? It kinda makes me :grmblz: mad.

I don't think there's a way to stop them :P

Also, not many players will consider themselves experts or anything above medium skilled ^^

Later there will probably be 2 daily cups, and on the 1st one those who made several good results will be denied to register, so there will be less very good player on it. Btw i'm not sure that after some time there will still be enough players on it...
