Re: A new Trackmania game will be out in July, 1st!

I must say - I'm impressed. This is 3rd? 4th stadium so far? That's a very superficial way of looking at it. You could look at it in an even more superficial way and say, that this is the 17th (?) trackmania. But this way of looking at things will consistently lead you to missing the point of thing...

Re: A new Trackmania game will be out in July, 1st!

I just want to share some of my thoughts about some aspects of what information we got about the new ranking system. I really like the approach with exponential point distribution. I already love that in TM² where I get just a couple dozen or maybe 100 points when I play a map for the first time and...

Re: A new Trackmania game will be out in July, 1st!

And, of course, the business model makes absolutely no sense. If you make a free to play game, allow everyone to play with the game, and sell stuff above that for people who are ready to pay for skins, access to tournaments, and so on. Make some new skins obtainable through XP gain, accelerate XP g...

Re: A new Trackmania game will be out in July, 1st!

For your viewers you can still invite them to test out the free access. This possibility doesn't exist on Uplay and EGS but maybe it will be possible later.
I know uplay has an activation key system. Couldn't you make it possible to just buy such keys for Trackmania? That would suffice.

Re: A new Trackmania game will be out in July, 1st!

@TMarc, @Mikey To understand subscription models one needs to understand that there has been a significant change in software development in the last decade or two. There was a time where you would buy a finished product on a data disc. This product would be maintained for some time, but basically a...

Re: A new Trackmania game will be out in July, 1st!

- With 465 tracks added to your track inventory every year, how will you be able to manage them? Will there be some folder or category structure for the tracks and/or will there be some "favorite tracks" and/or search features? - Unfortunately, I couldn't find a way to gift the game via uplay or EGS...
