I have to agree that LZ obviously won that battle against forsberg. I don’t agree that it’s rigged though.

All I want is for Forsberg to get another championship, been rooting for him for years, but he straightened and lost that battle with LZ. Shouldn't have gone OMT.

Not a fan of both Adam and Chris but Chris' mistake and the OMT given were not justifiable. But @Formula Drift please explain clearly why almost straightening is passable but not dipping a tyre which half of the drivers did.

Formula DRIFT
Formula DRIFT

Judging, in general, is the totality of both runs, not one thing. A tire drop if quick and fast is not going to be a big deal in the overall consideration, all other things being equal. Same thing with low angle on a transition for a small period of time, which is what Chris did. Sometimes one big mistake can be equal to a lot little mistakes or a medium mistake in a very important part of the course and, of course you have to take mistakes by the chase in context of what the lead is doing. The lead and chase drivers both have responsibilities as well. If the lead has a poor run, making it hard for the chase to do his job or if he is cutting the course short, that will go against him. We explain all of this at the beginning of each broadcast and bring on a judge to discuss almost every battle that might be confusing to new fans.

If FD wants to really be "legit" and get serious about things, why not just have all cars equiped with sensors for pedal pressure and steering angles? The rules weigh super heavy on power/decel zones and angles so why not make it actually something you can review with hard data to prove winners/losers?

2 måneder siden
Formula DRIFT
Formula DRIFT

Easy to say, harder to do. The rules don't weight heavily on decel zones. Decel zones are a thing and OZ2 gets magnified because it's a part of the course where chase drivers, who lose ground trying to catch up, get caught with too much speed. If you understand the physics of the cars and how the course lays out, that's not hard to see. Using telemetry data still requires you get it in real time and that you have pick the right data points to tell you the "truth". Secondly, there is always still going to be an interpretation of that data from one car to the next. That is not something that you can see clear as day. Tools, yes, but without the right kind of programming to get what you want, you might get the wrong, least intuitive answer. I know this because we already pull data from cars after each event to see what can be learned.

I definitely don't think Chris's run was a incomplete. Yes its very shallow, but I can clearly still see some angle in the car. THOUGH I think that should have weighed allot more heavily on the judging. I think allot of people overreact when it comes to "poor calls", but I still think that overall adam had a better chase (with similar leads). This is coming from someone who couldn't care less about adam personally (great driver, just think he personally needed more time in pro2 before hopping into pro1) i have no issue defending drivers i dont like/calling drivers out that I do.

Being a fan of the sport I am inclined to disagree with some calls. I enjoyed seeing some upsets that were legitimate and I didn't agree with some drivers advancing based on, what seemed to be, bias. The judging may need new eyes on it? Tony Angelo, even though he may be biased towards some of his DA brothers, would be nice to have back, Rhys would be nice, maybe to include some fans in the actual sport have a surprise guest being a fan in attendance? Could change people's views on how the mindset of the judging is...

To all LZ fans - in Russia we have some expression, sounding like "Drive so that there are no questions for you". Judges may be biased sometimes, or kinda blind, but they humans after all. If LZ didnt make small mistakes in first run - he'll win. Drive better - win with style. But of course decisions can be dissapointing, we have that at RDS GP this season too )

At least 2 of 3 judges have to be replaced. Straight up worst call to OMT that in a LONG time. Disqualifyingly bad judge call. These judges need to be called out for this, because it was just a plain bad call, zero grounds for an OMT, and even in the OMT straightening out making it even clearer that Chris did not deserve a victory there. If FD doesn't replace those judges, people will just stop giving a crap about it, because evens that depend on judges to call outcomes with bad judges is just as valid as deciding victors prior to the races even beginning.

It was quite interesting seeing Adam LZ lose to Chris Forsberg after an evident straighten which usually means an incomplete. I'm not going to pretend to be a judge but it seems like he should've won. I am curious as whether Adam will compete next year due to how many biased calls have been made against him. If so, how will Formula Drift be affected due to many of their viewers being Adam LZ fans.

2 måneder siden

@Neeks For sure. For me, the goal of judging process is to pretend the cars on track are being judged through a veil of ignorance. That is to say, pretend the cars you are watching are unknown who they are. If you can do that, you can minimize any intrinsic bias you might have and that we are all susceptible to.

@Formula DRIFT I again would like to point out I am not a judge. I can see why a large portion of yours and Adams fan base would argue that Chris had a straighten or just a large reduction in angle, as you have confirmed yourself. I would like to thank you for a confirming your decision and hopefully this makes the decision of Chris's win seem more liable to the fan bases of both peoples.

If you think that was an incomplete, you just don't know the rules. You can argue which driver made more mistakes, but he reduced angle, did not straighten and that's not a zero or incomplete. You have to judge both runs against each other on their merits.

@Rob 69 I don’t know who you speak for because your anonymous, but I’m in this everyday and if that were true, it would be so apparent. Calls people disagree with, sure. Calls that are close? Yes, of course. There’s no such thing as benefit of the doubt in drifting. You either beat your competitor or you don’t. Benefit of the doubt is for baseball, tie goes to the runner, etc. If you’re actually someone that speaks for a team, then I’m happy to have a call with you to discuss whatever you want, but if you’re just an anonymous poster, I’ll still treat you with respect but I can’t take anything that is straight-forwarded false seriously.

@Formula DRIFT keep thinking that but everyone knows its not true and if you were constantly working on it you would see that certain drivers always get the benefit of the doubt over others. If you can see that then appoint someone who can. Drivers and sponsors have spoken up and it has continued and drivers and sponsors have left because of it . If you think it hasn't your delusional. There is only one constant in your championship and thats bad calls . Drift masters has to be the top championship now because they have fair judgment no matter whom is the driver . Stop thinking your are the bench mark because you are far from it . There are pro am comps that have far better judgment and equal opportunity. You are not educating fans your just defending your bad systems.

@Rob 69 I work on issues all the time. It’s in fact all I do. One of those issues is trying to educate fans and that’s what we do here, even if fans come in hot and are not nice or seem hostile because that’s easy on the internet. We could do nothing or leave comments off but what’s the point of that? If the very first thing you do is go to bias, I know I have work to do because I know that is false and means you have some assumptions that don’t really make sense. There is nothing to gain and everything to lose having judges that were bias. It makes absolutely no competition sense and no business sense and if it were true, we would not just have to explain ourselves to fans and drivers but since every driver has a tire manufacturer that is also a sponsor of the series as well, we’d have to explain it to them. It’s one thing to say you think X is wrong call and then use our own rules to make the case, showing and inconsistency or whatever, it’s another to immediately go to bias or corruption because what has to be true there is way less likely than a new fan showing up and just not knowing how things work. Hope that helps.

Can you explain why smacking a cone is a restart, but stalling the car inside the cones is an incomplete? Is it because the cone could become lodged or fly out at the other driver? Or is because the car turned off in the stall? Or is it something else?

What do you mean? Hitting a chicane cone is meant to prevent drivers from getting out of the start too fast and blow the chance at a good tandem. We don't want to incomplete for that. Stalling the car means you tried to go but didn't and that's considered a pull.

Hello FD. I'm new to the drifting world as all the other sports have gotten "woke". I can understand why it's hard for you to keep a fan base. There where many terrible calls made during the race. I had to go watch something else. It seems to me that only the higher point ranked drivers are allowed through unless they make a blatant mistake and the much lower ranked driver then gets to move on. It seems your judges have a stake in the game as far as sponsors or something. You need to come up with a better scoring system.

@Formula DRIFT True, it's difficult to keep it consistent all the time because it is honestly subjective, the best you can hope for is the judges experience to allow them to make the right calls, but yeah a slightly more detailed explanation after the fact perhaps would be nice, like maybe even a full video with some of those close/controversial calls and explaining the exact reasoning and what rule each decision was based off of.

@Aleksa Ristic Fair play. Totally understand. We definitely need to do a better job of explaining the judging to new fans for sure. At the same time, the concerns you raise are not crazy or anything like that. It's totally understandable. Drifting is really hard. It's the only subjective sport (that I know of) that you can't do tricks, like snowboarding. It makes the comparison-style type judging leagues more challenging IMO because a driver that does a backside 720, his competitor can't do a switch backside 1080 to clearly defeat him. It's more like a scale, that goes back and forth and that's hard.

@Formula DRIFT That's cool, appreciate the explanation and sorry for assuming it was just a PR person handling the responses on yt, I saw it live, but it just felt like he didn't say what actually happened, it's kinda hard to agree with the explanation that's saying Forsberg had a bit of a lower angle between 3 and 4, and a low line through that section...dude damn near straightened that wasn't just a bit of a lower angle, and that's the bit that bugged me honestly, and I'm assuming all the rest of the fans that got pissed off too (disregarding the kids that scream Adam was robbed no matter what happens), it just seems that the judges kinda went easy on Forsberg's mistake and hit Adam hard for his. Btw not trying to be salty LZ fan here, for example in round six Adam got a OMT for something that to me looked like a clear cut win for Chris, Adam just made more mistakes in the follow, and his lead seemed only slightly better (and I understand it's judged lead for lead first, but still Adam's follow seem much worse then Chris'), there it seemed like Chris got punished for his mistakes a lot more then Adam did, it's just the inconsistency of judging that bugs me a bit, that some drivers just seem to get penalized harder for their mistakes then their opponents during a battle.

2 måneder siden

@Aleksa Ristic One of the judges that gave a OMT did explain the call on the live stream, so do you want an after the fact explanation in more detail or did you not agree with the explanation? If you did not agree with it, explain the inconsistency. I’m not saying the OMT judges were wrong or the LZ vote from one judge was right. It’s about making the case in light of the current rules. BTW, the person typing now can tell you lots of things in detail about the Series because this is one of the principles of the Series. I help oversee the writing of the Rulebook, so if you need explanations of why XYZ rules, I can do that for you.

@Formula DRIFT So then it would be acknowledged that the OMT call was a bad call to begin with. Chris' straightening was not line-fitting, nearly pointing outward to restart the drift is not something anyone with a modicum of knowledge would say is following appropriate lines or angle. Would be better to own up to it and say it was a bad call than to excuse it.

@steven ruiz The following constitute an INCOMPLETE in tandem: • Spinning Out • Opposite drift- Drifting with the opposite angle required at that point on course • Hood, hatch, trunk and/or doors opening during a run • Collision with the other driver that is considered “avoidable” or unsportsmanlike • A chase driver intentionally not chasing the lead driver after an INCOMPLETE was scored on the previous run. • Three consecutive restarts from chicane cones or an official’s call • Performing an Illegal pass - results in an INCOMPLETE for the chase driver • Getting legally passed- results in an INCOMPLETE for the lead driver Everything else is judged in the context of both runs

@alex ds cheating means then the driver isn't hitting the clipping points on order to maintain proximity

@Formula DRIFT The sport is still young too. I think it's unrealistic to say that the rules will never change. I think it's fair to say that there is room for improvement and clarity. For example, judges talked about drivers 'cheating' or 'cheating less' to maintain angle/proximity. What defines 'cheating' though? I haven't seen that in the rules (though maybe I didn't look in the right spot). Another example would be the protest system. It is strange that video evidence is not permissible. If the judges can't see a mistake based on where they are sitting how is that fair to drivers who do better runs but loose because the judges couldn't see something? The rules also state that you can't protest based on a judges opinion. Doesn't that rule allow judges to have a bias? In a clear cut win for a driver, the judges could say 'ya in my opinion you lost' and there isn't anything the driver can do about it. Just some food for thought there.

@alex ds Fair play man. I respect that response. Ultimately, we just want to be here for a dialogue and answer people's questions. We know drifting is harder to understand that who gets to the finish line first, so by its very nature will be subject to interpretation.

@Formula DRIFT I'm not here to call the judges idiots or say they are biased so I hope I am not included in the toxic people section. My first comment had a nice chunk of sarcasm (thinking you wouldn't reply) however I was just hoping to explain why me (and I would assume most other people being assholes about it) disagreed with the call. At the end of the day, if LZ wanted a clear cut win, he could have done better so it isn't the judges fault entirely. Also, don't bother taking time to respond to every hater. Just pin a comment explaining the rules. A lot of these toxic people are new FD fans so they clearly don't get it.

@Formula DRIFT Thanks for the reply, but I do actually want a conversation, I want to know what was the exact criteria under which Forsberg deserved an OMT there, not just an excerpt from the rules about incomplete runs, but an actual explanation of what was that particular judging decision based on for someone who just started watching FD and cannot understand how someone who had what seems to be a much better follow, with much more proximity didn't win against someone who was absolutely left behind, had less angle and almost straightened, or perhaps even completely straightened? If you stopped replying to everyone by essentially saying that we are fanboys who don't know anything and provide us with a detailed explanation of the decision so we can understand what it was based off of people might stop spamming the comments with the same comment.

@Kanye East don’t remember pro 2 last year? They apparently couldn’t afford to light the track all the way last season for a few of the pro2 rounds because they don’t make enough revenue to fund both series fully. It seems that They pay for pro 1 and then pro 2 gets the leftovers

@Formula DRIFT there's 2-4minute recaps and 2hr long "commercial free" LISTEN show the battle fade out right back to the second run(cars taking off from starting line) fade right to the judges swiping left or right. You can even throw sponsors names in the corners or during the cut fades to the next battle, not a commercial/cut (sponsor name)/cut back to action (the cars taking off from the start line) I try to get ppl to watch, introduce them to this incredible sport but the downtime and commentary kills it.
