  1. Official Monster Truck 2K18 Thread

    Attendance issues have been going on before the strikes even happened though. If you look some of the stadium shows like Glendale 2016 or New Orleans 2017, they had about 2/3 of the stadium filled from what I recall. I remember it being discussed on here. I think the copyright strikes had an adverse effect on the people whose channels were hit and the people who follow the videos, but for the general public, I doubt it had any effect. They're really not in the wrong for doing it, either. Personally, the overall format and style of the shows is what is alienating me, even if the entertainment itself is great. In a way, Monster Jam has always been a stunt-show, but with backflips, stoppies, corkscrews, etc. becoming more and more common, it gets kind of absurd. Certain nuances go a long way, too.

    As in, less people were going to their shows directly because of the strikes?

    I miss the driver introductions they used to do, where they would have a spotlight on each driver as they stood on their truck. Makes the drivers seem a little less important and the show a bit more rushed without it. Same goes for side-acts like Democross/FMX/Pro-Arena trucks. These shows are over in no time.

    Monster Jam removed almost all of their videos, as well as hundreds of other amateur videos , because they technically own what's being presented in the footage. Therefore they can remove what's being uploaded without their consent.
  5. I mean fans have literally been scoring forever, at least for the most part. I remember watching Motor Madness on TNN, where they literally picked people out of the crowd. As far as I know, they've always done that. Only difference now is that the entire audience gets a number as well. Also, a lot of people keep saying that biased judging is a recent thing that didn't happen in the past, when it has always been a thing. As long as we judge based on opinions and not technicality, there's always gonna be room for bias. Judges don't act as a committee either I don't think, so really they just hold up a number and what happens happens. These past 5 years, it seems like there's always been controversy at the World Finals over who should have won and who shouldn't, who should have taken the lead and who shouldn't. It's really subjective for the most part, even if there's good arguments to be made. Honestly there's been poor/questionable judging at nearly every show I've been to. That doesn't make it okay, but there's not a lot we can do, even if they hire experts instead of fans.

    I know what you mean, but the aesthetically-pleasing paint designs they had back in the day were always nice.

    I think it's because trucks like Rage and Wrecking Crew have developed a fanbase, and even though it's still literally the same truck, people like to see the truck as it was meant to be, rather than with a different shell.

    It makes total sense that FELD wants more of their own trucks represented at a show, and it wouldn't be the first time they had indies running their bodies either. I remember The Patriot running as El Toro Loco and Donkey Kong, I believe. With that being said, I can't help but feel that it hurts the name recognition for those trucks/drivers, since they're running names/bodies that they wouldn't be running outside of Monster Jam. Then again, I can't really imagine that 90% of people who go to Monster Jam go to other non-Monster Jam promotions in general, let alone go because said independent truck is there (excluding Team Scream, 2Xtreme Racing, Bigfoot, etc.)

    Yeah I remember the post-RORMJ event fun runs, where Mike would load up a few of his tracks and we'd all mess around on them for a while, or just the general fun runs and special events like King of the Hill. I really wish that I had more of a drive to compete back then like I do now, but there's hardly anything going on now. Back then I kinda stopped focusing on leagues after Season 2, and I really should have kept things going. I mean I really wasn't any good back then, but I still play ROR off and on, testing out new tracks and trucks.
