Non stop action? Massive crashes? Fun filled laughs? If you like any of those things then you will love our brand new racing club coming the Christmas..!

By now you must have seen every year we try and do different events in the sims/games we offer at RaceDepartment, all in the name of the quest for fun... often making up events that usually end in carnage, carnage with the cars and carnage of the rules. The drink takes over and that little love tap escalates into something rather dramatic indeed!

Well to keep up that tradition this year will be no different, although we fancy a bit of a twist of metal to add to the cocktail...welcome to the RaceDepartment Racing Club family the criminally underrated Wreckfest!

So grab your mates make up a team and come to the fun events or turn up solo and join a team for some fun nights of mechanical mayhem (in game monetary prizes are on offer at these events, which can be used to upgrade or repair the cars later).

We will of course be running a number of different events over the festive break so fear not, something for everyone will be on offer here at RaceDepartment during the upcoming festive season!

Although we are using the Christmas holiday period to launch this new club we have bigger plans than just a holiday smash and grab. Wreckfest is not just for Christmas.

I do one little post here:

Wreckfest: an Old Volvo, Championships and More Coming Soon...

And look what happens.  :P

I do hope some you racedepartment guys come join us Wreckfest guys online on a Saturday. You will find some guys that are tough to beat online in a race. But that not me, I lucky get 4th place. But watch out for me if it a fig8 race!  ;)

The fact that you have to be premium in order to sign up is probably gonna be their doom. So far it seems like while many were interested, not a single person signed up because of that.

Also why would I need to sign up? I'll just hop online on a random other server where at least I know everyone  ;D

signed up for what? is there a rd ncg race i dont know about? There are a lot of folks interested and most of them are premium
I see you like pubs, thats great, i enjoyed them too, but rd club is something opposite to it while still having this casual feeling to it. IMO cheap premium is a good thing to have clean, organised and fun races

There is indeed a race, you'll probably find it if you head over to RD  ;)

And either they didn't do a good job at spreading the word or there are indeed not many people interested as there is literally no one so far signed up for it.
I actually hate pubs, but in Wreckfest I know all the people on them anyway so I always know who I'm up against so it's alright here. Additionally, you're saying clean and organised races, but on RD it was made clear that they will tolerate, and even encourage reckless behaviour, like even taking out lapping cars, possibly going in the wrong direction and so on. I see nothing clean and organised around that. All they did was announce a time for the races, made people pay in order to sign up, and said there would be no rules. The Wreckfest community has done that for free countless times actually, so I don't see any point

Yeah I'm not really sure what to think of this. Also what is a pub? Aside from  the obvious answer.

And the prizes are in game money? Not really worthwhilr IMO. Have 200k+ (last I checked) and yeah I could upgrade a few more of my rides but meh...

Now, a custom item or real life prize money would shake things up, but aside from that, gonna need more incentive to get players to pay to sign up for a league thing.

Maybe I am not understanding the whole situation, but yeah... feel free to 3x0lain if I am way off.
i like to honk to make my worse air
This is why we can't have nice things.

Pub is a public game/lobby

racing club is a way for people to join organized, scheduled and clean races with rules, and they simply just added wreckfest to their simulator roster (you know, for fun). For only-wreckfest user deal might seem bad, im not surprised but if u race there its simply just another game u can enjoy in RD. Its a club, not league- so no prizes
So in short- a way for simulator folks from RD to enjoy casual fun but still in their group  ;D
