Fixing a Bug
Fixing a Bug23.08.2022 18:38:06
Most of you noticed problems on Sunday - we explain what happened...
As you may know, DTWS series has undergone some changes, and DebiK is still adjusting things race by race.
One of these changes triggered a bug which prevented the DTWS series race on Sunday from happening and blocked other Season Series races from happening, as well as other game functions such as rating, training, etc.
CONSEQUENCES AND CURRENT STATUS
When DebiK started fixing it on Monday morning, some other unexpected things happened, such as races calculated twice with worn tyres and so on.
Those duplicated races, mainly Nations and Club Series ones, have been erased and recalculated as it was felt this was the fairest way. All the other functions are now working correctly and have been updated, such as prediction or rating.
As may you know MRC is not a game supported by a big business behind. Most of us volunteer our time to help get it better.
But sometimes these things can happen and the MRC Team in general and DebiK in particular try to react as quickly as possible.
We thank you all for your patience and we wish you happy racing!
As a professional software engineer myself, I know bugs are part of any software. Big businesses have multiple environments (dev, staging, production, etc.) to avoid this kind of thing but a small volunteer team like this likely cannot afford that kind of redundancy. Thanks to the team for getting things fixed and recalculating the important races.
(P.S. Need any additional developer help? I'd be happy to lend a hand. )

The end of Miller's career.17.10.2022 - Hi, friends! Today I discovered that I have been taking part in this game for more than eight years. This is a very long time. During this time, I managed to get married, get divorced, get married again and finally become the father of a wonderful baby at the beginning of this autumn. As for the game, I think I had a very good career, after all, two championships in F1 with different pilots, this is a pretty good achievement. But I realized for myself that I no longer have the same motivation... Show full release
The couple Kubica-Guerra takes the 50th victory in Formula 1!!!22.09.2022 - Statistics are made of numbers, and some numbers are so impressive that can become symbols, especially if they are related to wins in Formula 1. In current Formula 1 is not easy to win GPs due to high competitive level of opponents (we live in a top 5-6 teams age) and variable related to race strategies and random in qualify. For what mentioned above, the target reached yesterday by the couple of two Ferrari's drivers must be mentioned. With the last win in French GP Vasco Guerra reach... Show full release

How F1 teams compare to Ferrari20.06.2022 - Here is how Formula 1 teams compare to the Ferrari if you take away development focus. In this comparison I didn’t include the slowest four teams as it’s hard to predict what development focus they chose. All eleven teams that have already managed to score points can be divided into five groups, and in the first group we have Ferrari. Basically, they have been unteachable when it comes to pace since new engines were introduced. A bit back we have Red Bull and Porsche. Both teams have almos... Show full release
"I thought I was done with school!"04.06.2022 - Craig Gardner heads towards his classroom desk for the 13th day in a row, and breathes a heavy sigh of anguish. "Is this really necessary?" he thinks to himself, as he prepares to be taught once again that 2 x 2 is 4 and that every action has an equal and opposite reaction. It doesn't make much sense to the 18 year old prospect that being here instead of racing could help him become faster in the future. But the powers that be insist that in order to become an F1 champion, he must... Show full release
