    race

    first of all thanks for inserting race, i am gonna buy membership for it.

    Make sure you have different times saved for ruleset 1 and ruleset 2, pql and vannila of each map, so that's 4 different highscores for each amp

    I am glad grenades aren't in most maps though. You ahve tor un a map so many times for a score and having a nade luancher makes you have to include a perfect nade + rocket launcer combo at the start of each map.

    Race is most excellent feature!

    To add to this suggestion, there should be 4 times on scoreboard. Vql, pql and both with no weapons. Players in the same server would be able to play settings just the way they want. People could power strafe vql style in same server as someone trying to rocket jump with pql.

    Not gonna make a new thread, but some things I'd like to see in Racemode:

    - Locally stored ghosts of YOUR best times for each map (4 variants: pql and vql, weapon and non-weapon runs)
    - Server-side ghosts of THE BEST overall times on each map (again 4 variants)
    - Leaderboards
    - Ability to spec without 'quitting' the game (it's nice if your in second place and want to see how the leader's route varies from your own)
    - Better game history stats: finishing positions, race time (or just leader's time and then +x.xx for everyone else), number of restarts, overall PB (from all races), number of rockets fired during best run, max speed...
    - ability to turn on/off the appearance of other various ghosts/players
    - ability to have checkpoint +/- set to either your own best run OR to the leader's run

    I could see them being able to do everything on your list Phlogiston, except maybe for the first two as it might be too much work.

    if you have to put in nade luanchers, maybe a third weapon style that includes nade luancher and maybe includes overbounce and 900 speed rockets with it(for doubling up on rockets). I think the pre-race wind up is already very long on some maps.

    Do you really need grenade launchers on any of the maps though in order to complete them? I've seen some super quick times on even the large maps without the need for them. Personally, I think plasma and rockets are sufficient enough.

    You don't ever need grenade launchers to complete a map, but having them raises the skill ceiling. You would have to do it every spawn though.

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far. One main thing I can address is we are currently internally tracking best times played on public Race matches, but no other variations at the moment. 44 maps with 4 variations is 176 leaderboards which is excessive, and we also wouldn't want to have to run 4x the servers. Ranking highly should be a rewarding effort, not just looking for the least populated board out of hundreds. The courses were designed with PQL weapons in mind although we made sure most of them at least work, even if they aren't very fun/satisfying.

    Sponge how about free users ? i'm free user and ok don't know about +/- between checkpoint's but the End time... i think shoudl appear at least for myself. i've made demos of my best runs [i prefer to play without weapons. Except Campground where there's no possibility to make good time w/o rocket's ] and where i coudl put these demos ? will appear any topic for demos like that ?

    Additional sugestion: Only one spawn point for non-fast caps maps
