Are You Ready For GT5 Prologue?

Are You Ready For GT5 Prologue?

As I mentioned earlier, I recommend for any GT player who has not raced on-line before, to get some experience now and to make sure all of your hardware is working, etc, to make getting up to speed with Prologue as uncomplicated as you can.

You all are probably wondering what each of you at this forum are like as opponents, too, right? So, here is your chance to find out. Kerr gave the OK to invite you to the US PlayStation GT forum (link on the right), to join in with a couple of groups who are doing just that - using ToCA 3 to learn about on-line racing before you get Prologue. There are two threads to pay particular attention. One is the original GT5 Prep Racing League and the other one is my Intro To On-line Racing thread.

The host game being used is the closest on-line PS2 sim to GT that is available. It is a good game, but just like GT, it has its flaws**. If you don't have the game and you want to join the fun, start looking for one early because it may be difficult to find in your area. (** A bug hits randomly when using a wheel with a PS3, so if you still have an on-line PS2, use it. If you have a PS3, try using the controller if the wheel bug annoys you.)

Racing with the Prep League is ongoing and a new group using small cars, focused more on beginners to the game and to on-line play, will start on Monday 19th. Please let the hosts know if you plan on joining because rooms only hold 8 players and additional hosts may be needed, etc.

Eventually, from these small groups, you will probably be able to get as much racing as a student or working person can handle. I will have beginner "small car" races on Monday evenings (practice nights to be determined) and the Prep League runs its races Wednesday and Friday nights (plus practices). I am planning on around 15 weeks before Prologue is available in North America (ignoring the Japanese release), but the series can be shortened or drawn out until Prologue is available.

Rest assured that, if you are holding back from going on-line because of bashers and crashers, you will have nothing to fear. While beginners with this game don't have the same control they would have with GT (almost all of the tracks will be new to you), anything deliberate will not be tolerated by the hosts. All of you are welcome to come and test the on-line waters, to meet each other as friends and to have a good time doing it.

Are you ready for GT5 Prologue? Come have some fun while you all learn together if you really are.

Dang no comments to this article GT vault seems a bit quiet...

I may sign up but I cannot seem to get to the boards link, I will try later. I have ordered TOCA 3 and hopefully will get it in the mail soon.

Thank you for considering this and you are very welcome to join. The Monday night Intro races have been going well, after a slow start.

I just clicked on the links and they worked.
Cheers,

MasterGT

Hey there, I am also looking to join, however, I seem to be having trouble with becoming a member of the playstation underground in order to respond. Is the league still going on and is there still room?

Yes, the league continues with Monday night races. In fact, a new points series will start next Monday, March 3rd. I'll watch for you to sign-in at the PSU.

I'm sure you'll have some good fun.
Cheers,

With more and more GT fans coming out of their off-line closet because of Prologue, I am glad to see some of them are preparing themselves for on-line racing by actually doing it.

While this league got off to a relatively slow start, last Monday, we nearly filled two rooms and we expect even more players for tomorrow's events. Unibrow

If anyone else wishes to dip their toe into on-line racing, feel free to join us. There is plenty of room for all of you.
Cheers,

MasterGT

It really has become quieter at GTVault.
I have stopped playing GT4 as much, but I'll try to be active here as often as I can. Wink

My buying of a PS3 will be based upon: Stick Out Tongue

-Price cut (hopefully)
-The cars/new features of GT5.
-The physics. (the graphics are awesome -- that's not a problem.)
