Design: Aston Martin Cognizant F1-team ACC-Livery

I’ve been a long-time Vettel fan, ever since his Formula BMW days and his subsequent race replacing Robert Kubica at BMW Sauber.

ACC in 2020: a year in numbers!

Over the year 2020 (with the exception of January and February), I’ve written posts about the player statistics of Assetto Corsa Competizione (ACC).

The case for a new ‘Versatility Rating’ in Assetto Corsa Competizione

In my preferred community (MrGit’s discord), there is a common complaint when it comes to multiplayer racing. This complaint is not unique to ACC. It was prevalent in Assetto Corsa and probably in games such as rFactor and Raceroom as well. If you think about it, is a logical consequence of having dedicated servers. What is this problem you ask?...

ACC Playercount Round up/Catch up: July – Nov 2020

Earlier this year, I wrote articles detailing the playercounts of Assetto Corsa Competizione. Due to a variety of reasons (limited time being the primary) I stopped writing those. However, I never really abandoned the thought of diving into the playercounts of Assetto Corsa Competizione to try and discern trends, whether positive or negative. So here we are with a round-up...
