3. General Behaviour

3.1 Communication:

● Currently our communication platform is Discord.
If you like to join our discord server as a Fan or Driver then please click on this link.
In Discord we have a lot of different chats which in some cases are only accessible in case you have a specific role in Discord.
For example: “The #admins chat can only be entered by @admins” and “The #european-tier-1-chat can only be entered by European Tier 1 drivers”.

● Beside the above chat lobbies we also have an system for “incident management”.
In case of on-track incidents you are able to send the YouTube link and your psn name via the indents system in the right hand top menu (Contact us –> Incidents), for this option you have to be logged inWe will then collect all footage available to review the incident and when necessary penalize driver(s).

3.2 Lobby etiquette:

● Shouting, name-calling and generally speaking rudely is not acceptable. Drivers who are a disruptive influence on the lobby atmosphere will be penalised accordingly, or in extreme cases removed from the league.

● Respect the other drivers. Keep a friendly atmosphere in the race lobby and treat your fellow drivers as equals, regardless of them being quicker or slower than you.

● Respect the League Coordinator. Listen/read if they are giving a message, and accept the decisions they make. If you feel any actions/decisions are wrong, address the issue calmly and maturely. Coordinators’ decisions are final within the lobby, but may be reviewed later if you feel an error has been made. Please accept that making a call instantly can be tricky and the Coordinator, even if participating in the race, is expected to be entirely neutral.

● Only the Coordinator – or the lobby host after consulting with the Coordinator – will start the lobby, continue over to the race and start the race. So please, as a normal driver, do not press the button which initiates the timer. This is to ensure that all the drivers are present, and also that all necessary screenshots of the results can be taken.

3.3 Pre-Race etiquette:

● You must allow the clock to run down before the start of the formation lap. Pressing “x” to go will result in 1 penalty point being added to your licence.

3.4 Race etiquette:

● If you are involved in an on-track incident, don’t overreact. It may be frustrating, but you need to stay calm and get on with it. Losing out due to another driver’s mistake or recklessness is no excuse for retaliation or acting against the rules.

● If another driver does something you feel is against the rules, report it to the Stewards Panel after the race rather than argue about it over the voice chat.

● If you are having a bad race, don’t act foolishly. As a driver, you have to accept that some races will be better than others and you can’t always have it your way. If you are unable to enjoy the racing due to not always being at the front, this is not the place for you – there are many drivers in the league, and someone always have to be at the back.

3.5 Quitting the race:

● Deliberately quitting the race in any way (whether that is by quitting through the pause menu, getting yourself disqualified or deliberately crashing your car) is not allowed. Regardless of how frustrating your race has been, you should retire your car in the pits. This is because of potential problems caused for other drivers when a car gets abandoned, such as the car driving around as an ghosted AI, the car parking at the side of the track and remaining there for the duration of the race, or yellow flags or a safety car being triggered. if you retire on track during the race you will receive 2pps on your virtual license and also receive a reprimand from the stewards.

● The above rule can only be ignored in the case of an emergency – such as something important and/or unexpected forcing you to leave your screen, or that you’re clearly a danger to other drivers on track due to connection issues or inability to drive properly. Quitting due to being angry at something or having a poor race – rage-quitting, in other words – is not a valid reason.

● If you do have to leave the lobby during the race due to an emergency, you must park your car in a safe spot on track before retiring from the session. This is to avoid your AI car taking over and potentially causing dangerous situations for the other drivers in the race. Drivers who leave the lobby without retiring first will be severely penalised.

Note: This does not apply to legitimate disconnections.
