Game
  • Player can now serve a slowdown penalty anywhere and will not be forcefully slowed down. The time illegally gained has to be given back within 60 seconds. Failing to comply will result in a drive-through penalty.
  • Cars serving a slowdown penalty are no longer ghosted.
  • Slowdown penalties are now displayed as part of the flag HUD element.
  • Adaptive AI logic now ignores laps that are clearly slower than player's known pace. Any lap slower by at least 3% compared to player's average laptime in a given race session is now ignored.
  • Sorted the controller assignments by categories in Controls settings menu.
  • Removed "Clutch Biting Point" from Advanced Controller settings, as it is no longer used.
  • Improved network communications in cases of extreme saturation. Should solve some timing issues spotted by players who are hosting a multiplayer race, racing themselves and also streaming in HD on the same computer.
  • Some performance improvements for situations where many cars are leaving skidmarks on the track.
  • Added key bindings allowing to move the cockpit camera perspective horizontally. This allows for setups with very large screens where the player isn't sitting exactly in the center of the display. This setting is remembered per car.
  • VR - Improved readability of the various HUD elements
  • VR - Mirror to screen option is now remembered between two game startups.
  • Fixed HUD messages not dealing with UTF-8 (accentuated characters will no longer be missing).
  • Chat font color is now a tiny bit darker yellow for better readability.
  • Fixed a HUD overlay showing up when switching between cars in a replay.

  • Fixed the centering of the mouse cursor when driving with the mouse as a controller.
  • Fixed success ballasts not being properly transferred or applied between two championship races.
  • Fixed a live timing issue during a race start on the VLN and 24H layouts.

Esports WTCR OSCARO - Round 1 Hungaroring



https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VTI7VNCx1kY

The Esports WTCR OSCARO will see its first multiplayer race event take place this weekend on RaceRoom. The very first of 7 scheduled events will bring us to the famous Hungaroring.

Thanks to the local hero race driver Norbert Michelisz, this round always provides a special atmosphere at the real track and it was no surprise to see so many of his fellow Hungarian gamers qualifying with great success for one of the 96 spots on the grid, split over 4 divisions.

Livestream for this first round will take place on Sunday, 26th August at 17:00 GMT (19:00 EU). You can watch the live stream with live commentary either on the Facebook Page of the FIA WTCR or on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/TheFIAWTCCworldtouringcarcup/live

Do you want to qualify and enter for Round 2?

Do not hesitate or think you're coming too late, you can still enter and qualify for round 2! Over the 7 rounds of the series, there will be one score drop, allowing for an absence, so it's still possible to enter with a chance to win!

You can also enter for the Time Attack championship. The top 100 players will win tickets to use at the final LAN event of the Esports WTCR OSCARO (date and location are to be announced).

You will find all the information you need in the Rulebook : http://www.raceroom.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/08/Esports-WTCR-Oscaro-Online-Sporting-Regulations-2018.pdf

Any other question, make sure to head over the Sector3 Studios forums for any additional information:

https://forum.sector3studios.com/index.php?forums/esports_wtcr/



Let's have a look at the Round 1 Qualifying Time Attack: At the very top of the virtual grid, none other than our 2017 champion. Alexander Dornieden topped the timing sheets for Veloce Esports in the #68 Honda, the same car that Yann Ehrlacher took to victory in the FIA WTCR race earlier this year. Slovakian Bence Bánki was 2nd for ACR Zakspeed ahead of Turn1’s Tim Heinemann, while Wisniewski and Leaune rounded out the top 5 ahead of the strongest newcomer, Andika Rama Maulana from Indonesia. The fastest local hero was Adam Pinczes in 10th, while Gergo Baldi, who won the Hungaroring race at the Esports WTCR Prologue Event earlier this year, only managed a still honorable P13.



The field is tougher than ever before, with Márk Nándori, 4th in the championship last year being the last driver to even qualify for the first grid, and with strong regular contenders like Fredriksson, Delsaux, Moisescu, Stempurszki or Knatz starting the season in the second grid.


Emulating the real FIA WTCR OSCARO as closely as possible, there were discussions about the Balance of Performance amongst the cars after the strong showing of the Hondas. As a result, the race direction decided to give a weight reduction to several cars, to make sure that all cars will be represented. This puts the drivers in front of an interesting choice, as they have to pick a car and stick to it for the entire duration of the season.

“There's the accessibility, and the way it's just as satisfying to play on a cheap pad as it is on an expensive wheel set-up; how the handling is translated sublimely through both. And what handling it is, spread out across a delicious range of thoroughbred racing cars: there are the DTM cars, with their downforce and low-slung lines, that only seem one step removed from the hi-tech of F1, or their WTCC cousins that bounce over kerbs with the kiddish enthusiasm of a go-kart.”
EUROGAMER

“The sounds, the looks, the feel, it all comes together to form something that is simply a high quality product. Whether you play only the free content, or you buy it all, there is no question that this sim is worth the download.”
