  • GTA V - Chop-shop Build Battle

    You have two weeks - fill your garage with the best stable of vehicles you can! Steal em, buy em, chop em, paint em - we'll circle back in two weeks and do a poll.

          Hmm, my garages look tame in comparison...

            I havn't put a great deal of time into finding cars besides the ones I want to buy outright, but i've collected a few just to take part in this little bit of fun.

              Hmm... you said two weeks from Sunday, but would anyone object to doing this on Saturday (the 6th) instead? Saturday might make it easier for those who work on Monday to stay later.

              We should fire up a private session too so we can have a non-passive-mode car meet afterwards, somewhere like the docks district. Maybe do some drag racing, drifting, some ballin' TG photo ops. General shenanigans.

              Oh, and are we going with a one-garage only rule here? Both so that the focus is on quality rather than quantity, and so that we aren't doing as much flying around the map to visit everyone's three garages?

                    Yup - each owner invites everyone to ONE of their 10-car garages. Everyone (privately) rates each car 0-10, for a total of 0-100 for each garage. (owner doesn't vote on own garage) Only after ALL collections are reviewed should scores be revealed. i.e. I'll collect average score at the end.

                    Voting is totally subjective and garage owners can explain the theme/reasoning/details on the garage or individual cars specifically.

                    NOTE: You don't have to have a garage in the build-battle to vote! The more judges the merrier!!



                    When's a good time to do this? Next Saturday night?

                      Re: GTA V - Chop-shop Build Battle

                      Just a thought, because maths is my job, garage scores should be normalized against a player's total number of votes so that someone who rates vehicles low doesn't have a better chance than someone who rates vehicles highly. i.e. Garage normal rating = rating / total garage ratings by player * 100

                      This results in every player's garage ratings adding up to 100, divided over the garages they voted for, so every garage will be eligible for the same number of votes.

                        So I took in my favorite car in GTA (Obey Tailgater) into the shop for some upgrades. Ended up with this very nice paintjob (metallic carbon black + red pearlescent)!

                            So I suppose we should start trying to work out what time we'll have this so that everyone can show up? I know Acorn mentioned he won't be available until 9pm his time? ( [MENTION=13034]Acreo Aeneas[/MENTION] please confirm )

                            I can be there any time from 5pm UTC (1pm EST) to well past Whiskey's bedtime.
