FAQ

GENERAL

WHAT IS SPLITRACE?

splitRace is a daily racing service that uses the classification system (ranks) to group drivers by performance and licenses, through the matchmaking system.

You can race daily by competing in our Seasons, in the most diverse Series, which will, with the progression of your driver's license, enable you to participate in the championships organized by SR E-Sports, the electronic sports division of splitRace.

USER PROFILE

DATA OF MY PUBLIC USER PROFILE

splitRace seeks the practice of virtual motorsport seriously, that's why we prioritize the use of real and correctly spelled noes (capital initials only), preferably using only the first and last name (preferably hidden if you have more names). Remember these will be the names used on the race servers.

We recommend using your actual country of birth, although you can use one of your own.

RANKING SYSTEM

SPLITRATING (SRA)

The splitRating (SRA) is an ELO-based rating. It has been used to rank chess players around the world for decades.

It basically compares you to every opponent on the lane, 1 vs 1. Your SRA is compared to your opponent's, taking into account whether you got ahead or behind. When you get in front of someone who has less SRA, you get less points. If you get ahead of someone with more SRA, you get more points. The reverse also happens, when you get behind someone with less SRA you will lose more points.

In the end, it adds up how much you won in the 1v1 account with all the riders on the track and gives you or takes SRA points.

Basically performance is key to raising your SRA. Getting into the first half of the grid is the best way to raise your SRA, but depending on your rank and that of your opponents, this may not guarantee an SRA gain.

DRIVING LICENSES

WHAT ARE THEY FOR AND WHAT ARE THEY?

Licenses act as access credentials. They allow access to different competitions as you progress through them. The available licenses are:

rookie 1

beginner 2

intermediate 2

advanced 1

professional 1

There is still a final level that is actually a special status reserved for the TOP 10 of pilots with a Professional license, called THE LEGENDS..

legends 1

As it is awarded to the top ten drivers with a Professional license it is transitory, as with each race the SPLITRATING rating changes and you can earn or lose your status.

REPORTING INCIDENTS

WHAT INCIDENTS CAN I REPORT?

To keep our competition environment as healthy as possible, your help is essential. Therefore, you can report the following situations:

  • Incidents caused intentionally (whenever the notified driver is in total lack of control over the vehicle, it will not be punished);
  • Unsportsmanlike conduct (e.g. overtaking off-track, deliberately running over signs, taking shortcuts, even in qualifying);
  • Unnecessary accidents (eg unsafe re-entry, very aggressive driving, accidents caused by gross negligence);
  • Insults in the simulator chat;

As a general rule you should report accidents in which you are directly involved. Small accidents with irrelevant consequences should not be reported. If your case fits the above hypotheses, it is up to you to decide whether to file a protest. Dialogue is always important for everyone, after all, we all make mistakes.
