Should we have categories or should we just have the match ups?

I think we should have categories

I think our group should have categories.
Type? Wide? Technic-basic?.. There are lot of options ;-)

I think types of cars would be good.

Categories should have different car types. Heres a prototype we could use to demonstrate:
Exotics
Tuners
Muscles
Classics
1900s-1950s
Luxury
Supercars
F1
Electric (hydro and other cars)
Concepts
That would be a solid 10 car categories. We could have it though, when you get a category you can switch it up like: Classic Exotic, or 1900s-1950s concept What do you think A.J.?

Categories seem good. But imagine one thing: Two builers - one built 4 wide exotic, other 24 wide exotic. How do you compare them - hence - how do you judge them by the same criteria?? I suggest dividing those categories into two subcategories - "width" <= 10 and "width" > 10

you're right, to judge them it is better if you have it with bigger then 10 wide and smaller then 10 wide, because big scale and smale scale aren't the same and the details of a bigger scale are better then smal scale because of the more space you have on the car.

Also thinking about build time... I think for big scale the building timelimit should be bigger. I'm pretty sure that there will be less big scale builders than small scale builders, so you can set up less rounds for big ones and they bouth (small and big) will end up approximately the same time. Your thoughts??

I agree that big cars and little cars should be separated somehow. But if the competition is down to a big-car builder and a little-car builder, we should go ahead with it.

Also, and not many people usually like this idea, but I think that the catagories for the match-ups should be specific cars. If it is just 'any tuner car' then it can be difficult to see which builder is better. And this is all about seeing who is better.

Maybe we could do the first round 'exotics' and the match-ups between builders be specific exotic cars. The winners of the match-ups from round 1 advance to round 2, say, 'tuners'. Everybody has to build a tuner, and it has to be the SAME tuner that your match-up opponent builds. Anybody like that idea?

yeah... some people like to make cars up how will we fit in those if at all



umm...well...I know! Tell them that if their match-up is "Dodge Viper" and if they don't like that, they are in real trouble, unless their made-up car looks remarkably like a viper. Or, we could have the first round be any car at all, made up or not, and if a made-up car wins that match-up, they advance, but from then on they have to build real cars.

After all, the rest of us are assigned cars to make in the match-ups.

since there are many 2010 camaros and lambos posted i dont think they should be considerd for the catagories because it will take less creativity. And does any one else hate kids bop?

We could do it like contests, but in catigories. So like we could split eachother up into groups of a certain car. BTW- I wonder when Firas will join...

Hi,

I think car type catergories are best personally

to quote Joel :

Exotics
Tuners
Muscles
Classics
1900s-1950s
Luxury
Supercars
F1
Electric (hydro and other cars)
Concepts

Juts some personal input; you might want to tin down the categories a little, or at least give tem a proper definition (as in, limits) ; for example a new Bentley could easily qualify for both 'luxury' and 'exotic'; whilst, if you ask me, '1900-1950' *is* 'classic'

Muscle not necessarily meaning american, just to give an exmaple why I give the idea of simplifying and defining the categories; the 70's Aston Martin V8 (http://5.media.tumblr.com/hSvCVC7kko5ws0xs5PgYeenAo1_500.jpg)
qualifies for :
exotic
luxury
muscle
classic
supercar
Give it a huge spoiler and some 20" wheels and you could call it a tuner car too :)
Likewise, the mclaren F1 could fit into quite a few categories.

Maybe - just my opinion - it's a good idea to merge categories ? Or to do a category system where you can't go wrong; like age - for example, vintage (up to 1930) , classic (1940-1970) , not-too-old (1980-2000) , very new and future concepts (2000+) ?

just an idea...

Sure :) Any scale is acceptable, so I'll get you in with a builder that does the same size as you. I wanna let everyone build what they want, and still be fair.
