UKGPL Rules
Introduction Structure Scoring Game On-Line Etiquette Penalty Guidelines

On-Line

General

  • When joining a race, please use a driver name which is easily recognisable so that we can keep the score sheet accurate, eg. Marc Mercer could use Marc2 Mercer, Marc Mercer2 or something similar.

    If GPL is not recording the driver's lap times in qualifying, they may disconnect then reconnect using a different helmet colour; this may solve the problem.
  • Once the driver has entered the server their car choice is made. They may not exit and change car after they have joined the server. The only exception to this is if WinVROC, IGOR or the driver accidentally selects the wrong car. In this case they must exit immediately (without driving any laps) and change to the correct car.

    Any driver who sets a time and then changes car will be penalized. Please see the Penalty Guidelines for more details.

In-game chat

  • As a general rule, chat is not allowed during league races, except after all drivers on track have passed the chequered flag. This applies to both qualification and race sessions.

  • The only exceptions to this are "PO" or similar for exiting the pits, "PI" for entering the pits and "S" to apologize after an accident. Even using "S" after an accident is not encouraged; a driver should be able to apologize after the race, any unnecessary chatting is distracting to the other drivers.

    Drivers should not forget that when they have finished their race it will usually be another minute or two before all the other drivers have finished theirs, so they should not start chatting before everyone has finished.

Timing and scoring mistakes caused by network problems

This section is intended to ensure that no driver is unnecessarily penalized by internet problems such as warp and clock smashes.
  • If a driver gains pole position (or another artificially high grid slot) because of a warp, they are not required to forfeit this position.

    A driver who finds themselves in an unexpectedly high grid slot is expected to exercise great caution at the start, where faster drivers may be "bottled up" behind them.
  • If a driver receives an undeserved black flag (that is, a black flag because of a network problem) or is lost by the server, they may choose to ignore this and continue racing. After the race, they should inform the moderator, who will check the replay and reinstate them in the results as appropriate.

    Drivers who have been disqualified or forgotten by the server should remember that other drivers will not see them on their lap boards, nor be shown blue flags if they are being lapped, and should adjust their expectations of other drivers' behaviour towards them accordingly.
