*In order to enter these tournaments, you must be a member of the squad HT Dirty Racing League, which everyone is welcome to sign up for at any time here*

Woo hoo, this is the 1 year anniversary of DRL Friday tournaments! Just over 1 year ago I asked about Europe-timed DRL tournaments, and then I started hosting them!

So, without further ado, welcome to the 50th Europe DRL tournament! Anyone from around the world can participate, but these are just convenient times for us Europeans. These tournaments are competitive, position matters, and winners are rewarded. However, we are a bit different from other racing leagues and squads. The DRL encourages crashing, shoving, wrecking and trolling. It makes races more interesting and fun, and can cause the lead to change rapidly. We only race on maps that are competitive, with good spots to wreck others and areas where players can easily mess up. All DRL members are welcome to sign up for these tournaments.

Every Friday at 8.00 P.M. British Time, the tournament will begin! Each will consist of 6 maps, with lap amounts varying depending on track length (usually 10 laps work best for most maps). So sign up and be prepared for some weekly amazement!

Date and Time (Please arrive at least 10 minutes early):

- Date: Friday 13th of December, 2013 (yay, lucky date!)

- Eastern: 3.00 pm

- Central: 2.00 pm

- Mountain: 1.00 pm

- Pacific: 12.00 pm

- UK: 8.00 pm

If you time zone is not shown, you can use this site here to find it. If comparing to UK time select Europe/London from the list.

Sign Up By Commenting Below! (And please add DemoTrtl on Xbox live so you can be invited easily)

These are the official rules for the DRL and for it's tournaments. These tournaments will consist of 10 racers on 6 tracks, and because this racing league isn't extremely competitive or serious, we will always have fun.

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!" However, if the Host decides to use any built in starting gate please follow his/her instructions.

- 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. This doesn't apply to Motocross tracks, or any other track with sections right next to each other with no bordering separating them.

- 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 or two at a point; However, if it gets out of hand those involved will get an infraction, and if the tournament host feels it necessary, he may boot you at any point.

- If you get black screen or severe lag, inform the host then simply pull off to the side of the track or get back to the start. Then wait for the person that was ahead of you to pass you again and get a similar distant ahead of you before the black screen/lag and then continue on. You will finish with a lap less (or more if required) than everyone else.

- If you get stuck or die: In the KOTH game-type, follow the Black Screen rule. In the Race game-type, just wait to respawn (Press X to speed up respawn time) 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 the game-type does not recognise that you have crossed a checkpoint you will permitted to continue without going back, as long as you stay to the track. You will finish with a lap less than everyone else.

- After you have finished the race, you must line-up a short distance after the finish line, to the side of the track in a place that won't interfere with people still racing. This will help the tournament host tell the order in which the racers finished. Please stay in line until the tournament host tells you otherwise.

- 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 whining or complaining about anything; if someone breaks one of the above rules, contact the host in a mature manner either during or after the race, and he will review it.

- Always listen to the tournament host, do what he asks, and don't argue with him or ask stupid/immature questions.

- 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 boot you.

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

- Be quiet when the host is 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.

- Never insult the tracks we use or anything about them, especially if the creator is in the game.

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 between 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 Offence: Warning.

Second Offence: Point Deduction

Third Offence: Disqualified from race.

Fourth Offence: 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 35 for that tournament and 10th place which will be added to their leaderboard 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 lagged out on and any future races, which 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. Please note that leaving to join someone else's game is not a valid reason and will be counted as a rage quit.

Uncooperative Policy: If someone repeatedly break the rules, being disrespectful to the host or to 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.

Scoring System:

1st- 16

2nd- 15

3rd- 14

4th- 13

5th- 12

6th- 11

7th- 10

8th- 9

9th- 8

10th- 7

*If there is a tie, the clip will be reviewed in theatre. If it is too close to decide, both players will get the same score (if it was a tie for second, both players would get 15 points and the person behind them would be in fourth and get 13 points.)

Dirtiest Racer

After each race the tournament host will ask you to vote for Dirtiest Racer.

You get one vote per race, and are allowed to pass on two races.

You should base your vote on the following things:

- Wrecks and general dirty driving performed on you.

- Wrecks and general dirty driving performed on others that you witnessed.

- NOT who asked for it the most.

- NOT who promised you all their HT points.

- NOT your bestest buddy (unless they've been dirty).

2: 20

3: 15

4: 10

5: 5

6: 5

If you could push the time 5-10 minutes this one time I'll be there. I decided that since I missed this week's EGRA race that I might as well skip next week.
