What is Topshift?
Topshift is an online Multiplayer Racing Simulation that incorporates all types of racing categories and real cars and parts to create a realistic adventure in the world of motorsport. Racing categories include; Drag Racing, Circuit Racing, Japanese Touring Car Championship, World Rally Championship, NASCAR and Formula 1.
The Object of the game
To excel at Topshift you must be able to manage your cars, races and teams to gain the most points from each race category at the end of the race season. Those points are then added together at the end of the period to give you a total game score. The Top 3 game scores at the end of the game period win that period's prize!
Consistency is the key at Topshift, just like any form of racing. Just because you are not in the top 3 spots at the end of a single season (game period), this does not mean you are out of the whole championship race. Game scores add up from session to session and after 12 months of the game, the top game score wins the overall championship.
How long does a Game Period Last at Topshift?
A game period at Topshift lasts anywhere from 14-31 days depending on the session settings. Version 2 is now being tested and we will be playing 14 day periods unless the need arises to change it.
How do I learn how to play?
Version 2 of Topshift has many added features and settings. We have created a PDF file for download that teaches you the in's and out's of the game. Althought it is quite comprehensive, we left a few tricks out so you can learn the ropes yourself.
