I agree, keep it realistic. In real life racing there is always an opportunity for slower teams to capitalise on the misfortune of the top teams, and so it should be in iGP. Yes, it might be frustrating for a top manager to be held up in the pits, but it's these random incidents that give the less experienced managers a chance.
If you remove all unexpected incidents from the game there is little point in playing, you just know you can't beat that manager who has competed in 200 more races than yourself.
Just my thoughts.
Well, I don't know what kind of "slower teams" are you mentioning, but I was mentioning a guy with no setup and flat tires.
This incident just helps the other top teams. Although you're able to loose ~4 seconds, It doesn't affect even some medium cars.
This "little point" can easily change championships, but you don't know that, you have just raced 3 times
Oops, sorry nobody explained that in order to have an opinion you had to have competed in more than three races. This is my newly created "Torro Rosso" team, I also have a team in the Elite league... but you don't know that, despite the fact you have competed in 550 races
I was simply making the point that the occasional
random event that is totally outside of the control of the manager, whilst frustrating adds a little realism to any strategy game. It doesn't necessarily have to be blocking in the pits, it could be on track collisions, unexpected equipment failure, "in race" penalties for causing a collision etc.
In your very first post you asked for opinions and that's what I offered.
