Hi everyone, DoctorKajita
here. I'm very excited to announce the official spin-up of Project CARS (Community Assisted Racing Simulator), a
multiplatform racing simulation from Slightly Mad Studios. Via Wikipedia, "[f]unding for the game was raised by the community and the developers
themselves, without the financial aid of a traditional publisher." This will be the
first ever racing / sports game to be introduced by TAW; it will be designated in TeamSpeak as "[CARS]." The hope is that this endeavor will open the doors to a
very popular gaming genre that has huge, dedicated following. The potential for TAW is
CARS is currently part of Vanguard Command's Horizon
division, where staff, events and resources will be organized in order to move
forward with recruiting. We'll only recruit PC players to start (across the
NA, EU and OC), but may be open to consoles, depending on our success.
On Saturday, 27 June 2015, at 2100 GMT, we will be holding a spin-up meeting in TeamSpeak. All interested TAW members are encouraged to join.
I've played almost every popular racing title available,
including iRacing, rFactor 2, Assetto Corsa, DiRT Rally and RaceRoom Racing
Experience. Some of these titles have been around for a while and have a
dedicated, hardcore fan base. Truth be told, all of these titles are more "sim"
than Project CARS and have certain features that are more refined. But, Project
CARS, to me, has a great balance of fun, immersion and sim. It's also the most accessible racing game due to its price (one-time buy
at US $49.99 [currently on sale for US
$29.99 on Steam!]), UI, dev support, track selection and growing community
/ leagues. The last bit about community is important, because it's what
galvanizes the sustainability and longevity of a game.
The ultimate goal is to create a successful division
that will inspire others to spin-up other racing titles, such as iRacing. Maybe
one day there will be a corps within TAW that is exclusively for racing sims!
To be perfectly honest, I don't know. TAW has never had
a racing game, so we're making history and walking blind at the same time.
However, breaking ground is not new to me and I'm confident we're going to make
this thing work. I was part of the leadership for the first ever competition
battalion in TAW for Battlefield 4. There, with the help of a dedicated staff, we
meticulously documented a comprehensive set of rules and regulations specific
to competitive play, and we were very successful in creating an engaging gaming
The same organized approach will apply to Project CARS.
However, requirements to participate will obviously not be as strict and will
instead follow the standard TAW protocol. In fact, true to TAW fashion, Project
CARS will welcome drivers of any
skill level to make this a diverse group of members. We'll be working together
as a team to create the best sim racing experience possible.
In the coming weeks, we'll carefully select SOs to help
with recruiting efforts. In addition, event structure and scheduling will be
determined. The most important element is for us to be a presence in online
races and build a positive reputation within the Project CARS community. With
of Ethics as our backbone, we'll race with respect and integrity,
and hopefully that'll attract others to want to join TAW, as many racers are
starving for clean, organized events. Needless to say, TAW can provide what so
many other clans / communities cannot.
One of those components is training. Practice really does
make perfect in racing, and we'll strive to create a fun, dynamic training
regime that helps members become fast yet smooth drivers. And more importantly,
I hope that through the Project CARS spin-up effort, we will be able to bring
in fresh membership that can become strong leaders in TAW.
Tidbits About Sim Racing
PC gamers take their hardware seriously, as you know.
Sim racers take this to the next level with dedicated racing rigs that have
thousands and thousands of dollars invested. We won't expect anyone to break
the bank to play, but at the very least, what we recommend (not require) is for members to have a wheel and pedal
set. It not only makes the experience that much more authentic, it will
probably help them become better drivers. Popular mainstream manufacturers of
wheels and pedals are Logitech, Thrustmaster
