Default Europa 2016 - Place your bets!

RACE IS OVER SEE POST 16 FOR FULL RESULTS



The race that stops the board is back in 2016. Lets look at some racer profiles so you can make some educated betting.


Chromia
Model: Cybetronian Cycle
Description: Following in the footsteps of last year's winner Arcee, Chromia is not only here to defend female equality but also to prove 2 wheels are better than four.
Special ability: Lane filtering: if Chromia is equal place with another racer she will slip ahead gain 2 speed that leg. Also cannot roll a speed lower than 3.


Wheelie
Model: Cybertronian Supercompact
Description: Kid bot no belong in race you say? Wheelie says you super cray
Special ability: Survivalist: wheelie takes no damage from attacks and gains 1 speed every time he is attacked.


Blurr
Model: Cybertronian Speeder
Description: A seasoned veteran and current galactic champion of both bot and alt-mode racing, Blurr has joined the Europa 2016 to show the earthlings what real racing is all about.
Special ability: Hyperfire engine: Blurr's experimental engine means he can roll up to a speed of 8. However if he runs three consecutive legs over a speed of 6 his engine will go haywire and will run at half speed for the remainder of the race.


Drag Strip
Model: Formula One Racer
Description: As part of Decepticon marketing on Earth, Drag Strip has been nominated both as their champion for the race AND to get him off Cybertron. The insufferable Drag Strip hates to lose and will do anything to achieve victory.
Special ability: Drag Reduction System: If Drag Strip is within 1 speed of the racer in front of him he will gain 3 speed that leg.


Streetwise
Model: Police Cruiser Concept
Description: One of the best and fairest lawmen in the Autobot ranks and is no slouch on wheels, he has entered the competition to keep the two Decepticon racers honest.
Special ability: Hot Pursuit: +2 speed if there is/are Decepticon Racer/s anywhere ahead of him on straight legs. +1 speed if there is/are Decepticon Racer/s anywhere ahead of him on curved legs


Dirt Boss
Model: Mini Monster Truck
Description: This off-road menace is the one to worry about this year. He has entered the race as the Decepticon insurance policy. If they don't win, at least they'll have a handful of banged up Autobots to show for it.
Special ability: Road Demon: Every time Dirt Boss overtakes or shares position with another racer he will run over them making them lose 2 speed. Furthermore the resulting debris slows all other racers behind him by 1 speed. Also his offroad ability gives +1 speed on curved legs.


Drift
Model: Drift Racer
Description: Drift is racing for great justice and redemption or something. Street courses are his speciality.
Special ability: Tokyo Drift: +3 speed in street (City) courses.


2016 Course
Leg 1: Central City (Straight)
Leg 2: Paprika Plain (Straight)
Leg 3: Carbombya City (Curve)
Leg 4: Galata Valley(Curve)
Leg 5: Continental Expressway (Straight)
Leg 6: Lake Bartels (Curve)
Leg 7: Chase Airfields (Straight)
Leg 8: Crown City (Straight).

Bets are perfectly valid. You have 100 credits left to spend though, saving it for next year?

Wait, so do I have to have already accumulated some points to place a bet? Or if I'm a newbie I get some nominal amount for free to start with?

As a newbie (or a brokey) you get 50 credits for free.



Also for further clarification, this year the odds will work as follows.

1:0.5 = bet 100 credits, win 50 credits and get your original 100 back as well
1:1 = bet 100 credits, win 100 credits and get your original 100 back as well

One last question before I gamble away, for the trifecta do I have to pick the finishers in order, or does the order not matter (ala box trifecta)? I picked 3 but if the order matters I'll need to choose that
