With over 150,000 gamers flocking to [i] Forza Motersport[/i] via [i] Xbox Live[/i], it comes to no surprise that [b] Microsoft Game Studios[/b] has now posted more than 1,400 leader boards for competition in every category on the [a] http://www.forzamotorsport.net[aa] official Forza website[/a].
The leader boards are split up into two major categories: Best Drivers, and Driver Ranking. The boards can be found at the community section of the Forza site [a] http://community.forzamotorsport.net/live/ [aa] here.[/a]
Best Driver consists of recording specific times for Hotlaps on circuit tracks, finishing times for Point-to-Point (P2P) races, scores from Autocross races, and times from Time Trials. The data for Hotlaps, Autocross, and P2P races is organized by car class. Whenever you look at a ranking for one of these categories, you?ll also see the car that was used in that race.
Driver Ranking involves a section that lists the top one thousand drivers based on their ELO ratings. When looking up a Gamertag in the search engine, gamers can find an ELO rating and an overall rating for Hot Laps, P2P, Autocross, and Time Trials. This is followed by a listing of total time online, total number of online races, and the number of times a gamer has finished in first, second, and third place. This is all personalized for each players stats.
Don?t forget all this doesn?t happen immediately after a race or competition is finished. It does take time to transfer the data from [i] Xbox Live[/i] to the leader boards shown on the site. A little patience never hurt anyone so suck it up and get out there an race.
