Penalty/Line Up Combo
« on: June 12, 2017, 09:14:59 pm »
I've heard this combo mentioned twice but am unsure how it is done.  I'd like to use it in an upcoming bout.  Anyone have experience and can break it down for me?

There's a number of different approaches, and no official one.  Some use modified paperwork, and some don't.  The approach that was written out by Nine Inch Wheels from Rat City is available here.

It's got plusses and minuses.

On the plus side - lineup tracking is MUCH easier from the middle of the track.  On the minus side, it is sometimes harder to keep caught up after penalty heavy jams.  If you're using the 30 seconds to catch missed penalties, you're NOT marking down the lineups.

Like *any* modification to the penalty tracking system, the impact is wildly variable depending on how penalty heavy the game is.  Everything works fine for a 20 penalty game.  The stress test is how it behaves in a 105 penalty game.  Also like any system - it works better the more experienced the operators.
I'm better at remembering "Smasher" is me than "Adam."
