WELL HI THERE COMPETITORS
I need to make something clear here… some of you have been violating the spirit of this competition. The core premise: make this thread fit your company’s lore. Not vice versa.
Too many of you have released an “all new” model on EVERY single round. Statistically speaking, this should not happen if your company is following regular product cycles. I should be seeing more cars based on models that are a few years old. While it’s normal for the randomly selected years to coincide with redesigns now and then, it shouldn’t be every. single. time.
Just so you have an idea of what I mean, here’s the history of my own cars with respect to the generations:
1946 - New model (duh, cause the game can’t go any farther back)
1951 - 1 year old
1957 - 2 years old
1961 - 3 years old
1964 - 1 year old
1969 - 4 years old
1973 - 9 years old
1979 - New Model (and FYI, I had actually built this model in UE before this competition ever began)
1982 - My most likely models are 1 and 3 years old. While in lore I have a brand new model in this year, I am unlikely to use it based on the economic conditions in this generation.
To those of you who are consistently sticking to your lore and submitting cars that aren’t always newly remodeled the same year, kudos to you… to those who aren’t, please start making a stockpile of lore ahead of time and play by the spirit, mmkay?
Side note… I came very close this morning to just doing a /tablelflip and walking away from this whole thing. I don’t need a GAME to become a stressor in my life. I have children just in case I ever feel I’m too relaxed. So if YOU are getting stressed over something happening here… take a step back and evaluate whether or not it’s really worth it.
