Hey I've still got time.

Yes you do. You are younger than me Are you intending to play again next season?

Any of us can get GC if we have the time to put into it and we decide to spend that time focusing on improving. That 48 year old GC has over 5800 hours in game and based on how he described it he spent a lot of that time focused on improving, not just playing for fun. Most people our age have too many other things taking their time and/or don't care enough about an in game title to put in the effort.

To be honest the in game title never really mattered and it matters even less now that there are new ranks above it. If competition and personal improvement drives you then you'll get there just as a side effect of pursuing those. If it doesn't then I can tell you from experience you aren't going to find the games up here more fun than the games at lower ranks. Focus on what motivates you to play and ignore the rest and if you end up at GC along the way that's cool.

Maybe. I've cleared like 10 games off the pile the last 3 months. It's refreshing. We'll see how I feel after baby #2 arrives in the next few weeks.

I'm sure I'll reinstall on Steam and login for the epic account when that happens, link my PS4 and Switch, and get all my cars and loot in order. Whether I actually play at that point or take another season off remains to be seen.

Hopefully your experience is like mine and the second one is a lot easier than the first.

Max team of five. Depending on who we have we would be in a Plat3-D1 division, or a D2-D3 division.

Signups close 9/25.

That's right in my range, though I haven't looked at what the commitment & timeframes would entail.

6 weeks of regular season, 1 Bo5 a week. Playoffs are 4 weeks, Bo7. Up to the teams to schedule and report. If you have 5 on the team, you can start a match with any 3, but can't sub in match. So if we had 5 it might give us more flexibility.

Seems flexible enough. I'd be down.

Yeah count me in.

Ok, we got three for the Indy Gaming League Fall series. Our team will fall into the high plat mid diamond range. We can have up to five. Who else wants in? Pizza? Crumbo?

I'd do it but...

1. I'm playing really bad right now. I'm still Diamond 1 but I feel like I'm just getting worse the more I play.

2. I've got 4 kids so it's hard for me to commit to something like this.

It sounds awesome though, maybe I can try to do the next one.

Season 1 rewards are animated decals. Finally the top reward item is actually the best looking but unfortunately none of us are getting it so...at least the silver one looks cool too

The hamster wheels are my new favorite item

Don't sweat how you think you're playing. Understood on the schedule, the idea with five would be to help with that, have bodies if scheduling is an issue. If we get five I'd also want to rotate people in so everybody gets to play.

That truck is hot.

Definitely want those! Wonder if they'll get a painted version. Now I just need a goal explosion like this:

That should have been part of Delorean car pack. Or retrofitted into it since it released before explosions.

Did they really remove the quick match button, joining the same game type you just played. I must be missing something, because that would be really weird to do.
