On September 10, 2010, Sim-Monsters.com was born.  Over the past decade, this website has played host to some of the largest events in virtual monster trucks.  From the early days of All-Monsters Eve and Fall Madness, to leagues like MROR, SSRS, KOTH, and SMRA, to modern leagues like NAMT, TLG, GZT, and ROR-MTP, this community has been rich with competition and The Monster Blog Truck Fest is no different!  For the first time since 2014, The Monster Blog Truck Fest will host one of the largest events in the history of Sim-Monsters.

This event will feature a two day, two stage racing competition that will test the skill of every driver and a freestyle competition that will push the limits of every truck on the track.  On Night One of racing, for the first time ever, a Round Robin bracket will used to narrow the field to 24 drivers for Night Two.  Night Two will be a showdown of the 24 best from Night One, competing in a single elimination racing bracket and freestyle competition to crown the champions of The Monster Blog Truck Fest.

We would like to thank @TheMonsterBlog for sponsoring this event.  Way back in 2014, we hosted the first TMB Truck Fest and The Monster Blog was there to give us a big name to support the event and they are back again to give this event the promotion it deserves.  Be sure to check out The Monster Blog on their website (http://themonsterblog.us/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/themonsterblog).


Rules:

  • All trucks must be built from the NAMT Truck Settings Pack
  • All trucks must run stock settings.  NO TUNING!
  • Visual changes, such as props and chassis variants, are allowed.
    • Chassis variants that require node/beam adjustments are allowed, but will be inspected before being approved.
  • All trucks must be customs.  No replicas.  Repli-customs are not allowed at this time.  Contact an official if you need further clarification.
  • All trucks must be uploaded to the site.
  • Freestyle will be more realistic with lenient RII's.
  • Everyone is required to use the RoR API Swapper while competing online.  This is used to ensure all trucks are running to spec.  See more details here:

  • Sign-Ups:
    • Open: Saturday, August 22, 2020 @ 8:00 PM est/7:00 PM cst
    • Close: Tuesday, September 15, 2020 @ 11:59 PM est/10:59 PM cst
  • Track Format:
    • The Monster Blog Truck Fest features two racing courses; one large crossover track and one small St. Louis style track that is a subsection of the larger crossover.
    • Qualifying and Night 1 of racing will be held on the smaller St. Louis style track.
    • Night 2 of racing will be held on the larger crossover track.
  • Qualifying:
    • Qualifying will be held 1 week prior to the TMB Truck Fest and will operate similarly to the World Finals in real life.
    • 10 minutes before the qualifying session opens, we will allow everyone who is signed-up to request to qualify.
    • After these 10 minutes, everyone will be randomly paired and the first round of qualifying will begin.
    • Qualifying will be held on the St. Louis style track.
    • Everyone will run 1 timed pass alongside the person they were paired with.
    • Once the first round ends, the second round will begin.
    • This round will pair the slowest two, then the next slowest two, and so on.
    • The second round is optional, but if you choose to run in the second round, your first round time will be replaced with the second round time.
    • Once qualifying is completed, the fastest 48 will be placed into their groups for the Round Robin stage of the racing competition.
    • Fill-ins will be placed last in the list of qualifiers, reshuffling the groups as needed.
  • Night 1:
    • Night 1 will consist of just the Round Robin portion of the racing competition.
    • Racing will be held on the St. Louis style track.
    • Round Robin works by dividing the total field into small groups of drivers.
    • Each driver in a group will race every other driver in their group.
    • Example:
      • 48 total drivers are divided into 12 groups of 4
      • One group has drivers A, B, C, and D
      • For this group, there would be a total of 6 races:
        • A vs B, A vs C, A vs D, B vs C, B vs D, and C vs D
      • Each driver runs 3 races
      • The two drivers with the most wins will move into the final bracket
    • With a field size of 48, there are 12 total groups planned.
    • Also we will require all 4 drivers for a group to be in the server at the same time, despawning their trucks when they are not racing.
  • Night 2:
    • Night 2 will consist of the final stage of the racing competition and the freestyle competition.
    • Only the 24 trucks that make the final stage will compete in freestyle.
    • Racing will be held on the crossover track.
