Ba Services Races
Next BAS Races: Saturday 4th of August (04/08/2018) - W342 - 21:00GMT
Ba services races are held on a monthly basis, on the first Saturday of each month, at 21:00GMT. BAS Races are available to all ranks; trialed or vouched for in bas, as well as others in the community who receive a vouch that applies only to races. Bas races will be run no different to how races have always been done, only there is selective entry. But, if you’re unfamiliar with that this thread will explain how races work.
The winning teams of each race are entered into the races record on the zeta. We aren’t offering rewards for winners, as Bas races are intended to be friendly competition. We want Bas races to provide opportunity for skilled baers to take part in races with other skilled baers, allowing for some higher competition. However, we still want it to be a welcoming event and want to avoid causing tension around performance. For that reason winning gets you only bragging rights, and bullying/flaming will not be permitted. lacklustre race performance will not be penalised in any way, nor will stars consider your race performance as indicative of your leech performance. Do not worry about have to "pass a bar of entry," just come and have a good time.
Anyone that is entered onto this vouch list is allowed to participate in BAS races. People can be removed from this list, and will be typically added on a temporary basis. We do not want this list to become excessively long.
If you know someone that would like to be vouched, contact a star rank and explain why you think they should be. If applicable, include the names of other ranks that can vouch for the player. The more bas ranks that are willing to vouch for said player the more likely they’ll be added to this list. It is important that this is done prior to a race event to allow time for the process.
The point of this: a) We want to keep the skill-level competitive, and b) we don't want to be dealing with an excessively long vouch list, it's a bas event primarily for the bas community.
First, if you’re interested in partaking, stand at the northwest corner of the hallway outside the wave 1 entrance. If you are not racing, stand at least east of the crate between the wave 1 and wave 2 wall. Do not enter wave 1.
After the event organizer/host counts the amount of people prepared to race, they will delegate captains for the amount of teams fillable. This is why we ask you stand at the northwest corner. Once this is done however, you may stand wherever in the hallway you choose, provided you’re west of the wave 1/wave 2 crate, otherwise you will be mistaken for a spectator.
The captains will then form a line in wave 1, parallel with the entrance wall, and will proceed to select players, in turns, from the hallway (Schoolyard pick). The captains take turns choosing players as such:
C1, C2, C3, C4, C5 x2, C4, C3, C2, C1, repeat.
When you have been picked by a captain, enter wave 1 and stand behind them, or at the end the line of players behind them. Once all the teams are full, your captain will tell you to join a cc of their choosing. In the cc, you will decide on roles, discuss strategy, etc. Attackers may need to gear in this time, so don’t rush or stress about taking your time.
Once your team is ready and scrolled, your captain and/or scroller will stand at the ladder, and you will stand on the north-east corner of wave 1; Only do this if you’re absolutely ready as this signals to the host exactly that.
The host may request actions/movements at this stage to demonstrate that you have not gone afk. After which, the host will give a signal and the race will begin.
