GT Academy Round 2 Cancellation Notice

Last Updated : Feb 06, 2011
Share



In Round 2 of the GT Academy held from January 31 to February 6, we have found repeatedly that it was possible to inappropriately cut corners or intentionally hit the walls to shorten lap times. Because of this we are effectively negating Round 2 of the competition, allowing EVERYONE who entered round 2 to automatically progress to Round 3.

As notified before, we had changed the course for the event twice due to these issues, but we were unable to completely eliminate the problem.

For this reason we are now working on an update that will help prevent this type of inappropriate driving. Because Round 3 must take place after the release of this update, the previously announced schedule of February 14, 2011 9:00AM is subject to change. The new schedule hereafter will be announced again at a later date.

We send our sincere apologies to all participants of Round 2, for the repeated inconvenience and turmoil this may have caused. We are currently working hard to make the necessary adjustments to prepare a fair race environment for everyone, and ask for your patience until Round 3 of the competition is ready.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support for the GT Academy.
Damn, but it looks like the new patch will come soon.

I saw that this morning. Really surprised me that they flat out cancelled the second round.

The thing is, we were already supposed to get an update in "early February", so what remains to be seen is what that entails, when we get it, and if it will be delayed to accommodate the new update they are working on.

And if they're putting in corner-cuting rules, I hope they make it like penalties so that it can be adjusted.

If I remember correctly, the ability to pit your B-Spec drivers against the B-Spec drivers of the online community and your friends was supposed to be out in early February.

From the GT5 website:

"Lend and Borrow AI Drivers to Gain Experience

There is also a special mode in Community called "Remote Races" where you can compete in B-Spec mode by selecting an AI driver and a car of your own to pit against a friend's AI driver and car. Your friends must set their drivers to "public" for you to race against them.

This also means that in turn, any AI drivers that you set to be public may be called out to race by friends from your friends list. When this happens, your AI drivers will participate in your friends' remote races even without your knowledge.

You can watch the races that you host in Remote Races, but you will not be able to give your drivers any direction as a race director like you can in the standard B-spec mode. This is to keep the races with your friends' online AI drivers fair, as they won't be there to coach their drivers."

I've been using mygranturismo.net to keep track of my garage and today it stopped letting me add cars. I click the ball next to the car and it doesn't do anything. It was always like that on Internet Explorer so I was using Firefox and now it stopped on there too. Any suggestions?

Bugger that then The thing I've noticed after looking on that site is that the cars don't have much value when and if you want to sell them, never tried with any of my cars (even if I have duplicates) so didn't know what the values would be like.
