Correct. To have a whole lineup thrown in my face per company would just be insane for me to try to do. Pick the one you’re most proud of, think fits the time and market the best, or what have you. But one per user per round.
I would update all my cars then display them all…
For example: Click me!
But I only submitted one entrant to Imperator!
This way I could keep all my cars up to date, have more fun and have a better idea of what to submit the next round.
I just realized something. What if two companies decided to collab at some point to reduce costs/make a better car in X demographic? How would the entry count?
Is it okay if i enter the first round even if Anhultz did not export to america back then?
I would also accept a 15% penalty on rating (instead of 10%) as they would be privately exported.
How are multiple trims going to be judged ?
For Example lets say i have a car which is available in Base, Lux and Sport trim.
pick one… i assume
@Mr.Computah - If they’re companies owned by the same parent company, that would be a “captive import” situation. If you’re talking about between players, for the sake of my sanity, I will have to say “no” to that idea.
@Elizipeazie - PM me your situation and I will consider it.
@Mikonp7 - As review magazines typically only get one car to review, pick your preferred trim for submission. It will be placed in a class accordingly.
Will we be posting advertisements, or just lore, or both
Ads in this thread, lore in the lore thread. Ads don’t have to be anything particularly special. a picture and a few words is fine. But if you guys put more effort into it, it elevates the whole thing.
