I was playing some multiplayer races in Trials: Evolution last night and noticed that sometimes the score at the end of the race would be adjusted down.
What I can't figure out is how this negative adjustment is calculated. It looks like I get negative points for every fault on the course, but then those points don't seem to correspond to the final score.
For example, in one race I ended up with 8 faults and my opponent ended up with 9, so we went into scoring with -8 and -9, but then both our race scores went down by -8. Another time, I had -1 and my opponent had -7, so our scores were adjusted by -1 and -6 respectively.
I can't seem to figure out the pattern here. How are these points determined? Is it affected by who wins the race?
