Server and website will be closed down for about an hour due to required maintenance.
Underground Racing League
URL - New type of tournament-based race, which is a bit different than casual races. First of all, URL can be up to 12 players in a single race. Second of all, URL races can be played only at specifed time, when an URL Event is active.
How does it work then?
To join URL you have to travel to the stadium in your city (LS, SF or LV) in Freerun mode. There you can watch for incoming events and join active event.
Everyday there are 4 default URL events every 6 hours - at 2:00, 8:00, 14:00 and 20:00 server time. Each event always lasts 1 hour and only during this time you can join event. Administration have access to edit and create own events with different settings and at any time.
In every event you have to choose one of available rooms which are separated by car score.
After choosing event and room, you're moved to the automatic lobby where you have to wait for players.
To start URL tournament there must be at least 6 players in room. When tournament is found, players at first vote for maps and their directions. After that 3 races in a row finally start. Because this is tournament, you don't need to win every race to win tournament because it depends on total points gained from races.
For URL races there are used special, exclusive locations and maps. Since this update at the begin only one location - Bayview Speedway - will be available
Second location - Los Santos International Airport - will be added in few weeks.
In future we will consider adding more URL locations.
Other info about URL Events
Lobby size - can be 8, 10 or 12 players. Default URL events are always up to 8 players in tournament. Only admins while creating custom events can enable 12-players mode.
Total distance (in km) - amount of laps in tournament races is calculated according to total distance. For default events it's always 40 km.
Additional rules - admins while creating events can allow only certain classes or cars so expect in future events like C Class Race or Infernus Race.
Because tournaments are important, leaving them is strictly forbidden. By leaving tournament player automatically gets URL Ban and won't be able to join any URL event for next 48 hours. And no matter it was normal leave or lost internet connection - next time player has to make sure he has enough time and stable connection.
Also, because of this strict rule, final rewards won't be decreased because of left players - rewards depend on total points.
Due to obvious reasons URL ban is disabled for administration.
