List of ranks in order from least to most honorable:

Raunchy Racer

Hell On Wheels

^Offensive Racer

^Vulgar Racer

^Wrecking Machine

^Filthiest Racer (most honorable)

The four ranks with the arrows in front of them are the four most honorable in the DRL. These are the only four ranks in the DRL that only one member can hold at a time(besides ^Founder of course). A members' title on the members list will consist of their highest rank of each category. The categories are point amount, race wins, voted dirtiest racer, and tournament wins. The color of each member will be that of their most honorable rank, and keep in mind that no two ranks are equal. Number of times voted "Dirtiest Racer" and number of times winning a tournament will be displayed in parenthesis after the title of their highest rank in each of those rank categories.


Here is how the point system works:

First place will earn 16 points each race, second will earn 15, and so on (most tournaments will consist of 10 racers, so last place in that case would earn 7 points.)

At the end of each tournament, the total points earned by each member is added up to determine the results. The number you earn will be added to your overall DRL members points, or what we can simply call, DRL Points. (Tournament winners receive HT points as well; however, those are separate from DRL Points.)


Tournament Rules

On The Track:

- No going early during the start of the race. You must go when you hear the fast, and one syllable "DRL!"

- No going backwards on a track, unless it requires you to go in both directions in which case collisions are encouraged.

- No getting off of your mongoose; ever. If you are stuck or flipped by accident, get back onto your mongoose as quickly as possible.

- No using grenades, shooting, or smacking cars if you happen to fall off.

- No cheating; if it is possible to cheat the track, in any way, do not. If someone pushes you onto a further part of the track, you are in luck and may proceed ahead of the others. If you get pushed to a previous part of the track, you are in no luck, and must proceed. This doesn't apply to Motocross tracks, or any other track with sections right next to each other with no bordering separating them.

- If you get stuck or die: In the KOTH gametype, go back to the starting area, get a new mongoose and wait to rejoin the race in the position you were in, you will finish with one less point but that will be ignored. In the Race gametype, just wait to respawn or get off and wait for a mongoose to spawn under you. If you believe you died unfairly and it has cost you an unfair about of time, discuss it calmly with the host.

- If you get black screen or bad lag, simply pull off the track or get to the start, and apply the rule for dying or getting stuck (from the KOTH gametype).

- Pushing, shoving, break-checking, tail-whipping, crashing, sandwiching, and any other form of destroying your opponents is allowed and encouraged.

- You may team up with another racer(s) for a short period of time, but long lasting alliances will not be tolerated, including alliances to not wreck each other, and alliances to wreck a third party.

- After you finish the race, you must lineup a short distance after the finish line, to the side of the track. This will help the tournament host tell the order in which the racers finished.

- No slowing down or wrecking yourself intentionally to let others catch you in order to interfere with those racers.

- No stopping on the track and rejoining the race (unless temporarily, for a legitimate reason, with prior warning to the host.) When rejoining, do so when and where you are supposed to be.

On The Mic:

- No excessive whining or complaining.

- Respect the tournament host, do as he/she asks. No excessive arguing with him/her as it will slow the tournament down and hinder good hosting.

- Have fun, and if in great peril feel free to yell. However, don't yell too much, be too loud, or be too annoying or the host has every right to reprimand you.

- Be respectful to fellow racers: trash talk for fun and mainly as a joke, but rude comments, serious insults, sexism, racism are not tolerated or allowed.

- Be quiet when the host in explaining the rules to new members, during the countdown, and if someone needs the host during a race.

- You must be sure to talk over others if you get stuck, have lag, etc. to contact the host to ask him what to do. If in this situation, you have the right to interrupt anyone.

- Criticism of the tracks will be tolerated provided it is done respectfully and constructively, remember not all tracks are going to suit you and they may be others who really enjoy the track.

Tournament Hosts:

- Tourney hosts make all the calls on the times you wait at the start of each race, and follow those rules.

- Tourney hosts must choose 6 maps, however they select the amount of laps for each map (based on the suggested amount). The laps are decided to ensure a race of between 7 and 12 minutes.

- Tourney hosts are responsible for getting 10 racers in each race, and no more (any more would be too chaotic/laggy). Be sure to allow 10 slots in the backup roster to ensure a full tournament.

- Tourney hosts must be mindful of second priority racers.

- Tourney hosts must review all questionable races in theater before determining winners and posting results.

- Tourney hosts are responsible for relaying the results to WhiskeyWarm so he can update the leaderboard, guidelines for this are sent to each new host personally.

- Tourney hosts are responsible for posting the results, the new tournament, rewarding points, and informing WhiskeyWarm of results within a few days. Get the new tournament out quickly to allow time for signups.

Overall:

- Have fun, be respectful, and be prepared for some of the most fun and intense racing on HT!

Punishments

First Offense: Warning.

Second Offense: Disqualified from race.

Third Offense: Disqualified and booted from tournament.

*Keep in mind, hosts and racers, accidents happen: don't go around calling infractions left and right.*

Cheating Policy: If someone is caught cheating a track intentionally, with full knowledge that he/she are cheating, then they will get a point total of 0 for that tournament which will be added to their leader-board rank. They will also be banned from tournaments for one week.

Rage Quit Policy: If someone immaturely rage quits because they are losing, then they will get 0 points for the race they lag out on and any future races and it will go towards their leader-board rank. They will also be banned from tournaments for one week. If someone lags out or has to leave for a valid reason, so be it, but getting angry over a video game and rage quitting will not be tolerated.

Uncooperative Policy: If someone repeatedly break the rules, disrespect the host or other racers, or try to ruin the tournament for others, then they will be dealt with. Hosts hold the right to DQ (disqualify) them from races, or more drastically, from tournaments. If this happens after a warning and previous DQ, they will be banned for a week, and then a month, and then a year. So just be respectful and follow the rules.

If this is a dirty racing league then you should be able to drive backwards to make even more collisions if you're suicidal enough.

Thanks man, I'll do the same. This makes it much much easier for our tournament hosters. Everything is covered here, except for things that apply to specific tournaments.

- No cheating; if it is possible to cheat the track, in any way, do not. If someone pushes you onto a further part of the track, you are in luck and may proceed ahead of the others.

As mention into tonight's tournament, you might want to add something about how this doesn't apply to SX tracks. This will avoid confusion, because I've seen it a few times when newcomers will just carry on when pushed into a further part of the track and then get confused when the regulars shout at them.
