    YouTube TUTORIAL
  9. Avoid long loading times: As we are using a powerserver, any lag or long loading time issues are caused by your computer/connection. Follow all these steps to avoid long loading times which often results in not getting any checkpoint times and hence a knockout:
    > Delete the TrackMania Cache in the settings
    > Decrease TrackMania quality, especially shadows
    > Turn off up- and downloads in the TrackMania settings
    > Restart TrackMania before joining the TTC server
    > Turn off all programs beside TrackMania
    > Do not up- and download anything while driving

DURING CUP

  1. No practice time, 10 warmups which end after 10 seconds just to prevent long loading times, not to see the whole map (10x once after a skip!)
  2. Respawn is ALLOWED!
  3. Cutting and any kinds of cheating will NOT be tolerated – may not only result in a ban from the current cup – but also from ANY TMM cups!
  4. Break: After around half of the cup is over a break of 5 minute (once) will be added by increasing the chattime after a skip. (watch the chat ingame and keep an eye on the lobbytime!) (Break added when Rounds +35 >=  players left)
  5. Multi-Knockout: (updated October 2016)
    Players left: 1 to 20 -> 1 KO’s
    Players left: 21 to 60 -> 2 KO’s
    Players left: 61 to 140 -> 3 KO’s
    Players left: >140 -> 4 KO’s
  6. Retire = Knocked Out
  7. DNF (did not finish) = Knocked Out
  8. DC (disconnect) = Knocked Out
  9. Rounds per map: The map will be driven 5 rounds – then the next map will load. After 5 maps it will start over again with the first map.
  10. If you are knocked out you will be kicked. Please use the stream then! You can NOT join back on the server. Secret Passwords!
  11. Insulting/swearing/cutting may result in a kick/ban without a warning. Keep your language clean and do not spam the chat.
