quick question what are we doing about lobby sizes as over 10-12 in a lobby causes issues such as disconnects and for wheel users it causes major force feedback stutter

Done a 10.5 car feels really nice and even though this is one of my least favourite tracks I are quite enjoying thrashing the Ginetta around it

Well not a TORA related issue behind tonight's delay!
Lobby A had a great race once we got going. Race 2 called due to connection issues with the game - Race 1 results carried over to Race 2.
Thats everyone for pushing on with it - hopefully a promised pacth will be with us very soon.

Well I enjoyed that! Good to see pcars back and popular again, certainly works better than the 1st instalment!

Wasn't where I was expected to be after qualifying but as usual had some good clean battles out on track.

Already looking forward to next week.

Whoever had that huge crash in our lobby it was epic lol, infact I need to look at it on the replay.

First off, I don't like to point fingers, however this wasn't legit tonight. You can also say what you want about this post and say I'm throwing my toys out of the pram (which I am a little).

Not going to name names as it wasn't just my lobby, but lobby hosts should be checking and double checking before starting the session.  My qualy lobby was given to my lobby host because he didn't know the settings.  I and others noticed that the setting weren't correct and we went first time anyway as I thought it wouldn't affect us that much but it did. Seeing as other lobbies may have correct settings, this would be a disadvantage to myself and other members in the lobby. This was then rectified and we had a fair shot at it. We all set laps near to what we'd been running all week to the specified lobby settings. I did find out that Murphys lobby was also not correct but this was nearer to race time so not a lot could be done about it.  For the race, we have been practicing to default date during Summer. Not Autumn.  Alone this was enough to unsettle a week and bits worth of work into a near undrivable car.  Due to this, our race was comprised as we knew the best we could do was keep it in a straight line, pitting would have just thrown it away instantly. Fair dos other drivers were also in the same situation, however if you look at qualy times, it could suggest that other cars did not have as much grip in the summer meaning it could be more stable. This could favour the autumn weather. When coming to autumn, mine and I'm sure others potentially near unstable grippy cars in the summer, became incredibly unstable slidy cars.  Whereas those with a more stable car would have the advantage due to not having to worry about spinning each time you broke for a corner.  It's not enjoyable racing when you're just trying to hold on and not even able to push until lap 13 when the race is basically done. Even then, it only had a marginally better affect.  It's even worse that in the 2nd race, the lobby settings are changed to summer. Alright they were what we kept going on about, but at that point I'd have rather stuck with what we had rather than just doing one race at default date and then being told everything else will be done on current date.  Consistency is key.

Were also racing on a broken game that we knew didn't work well, I'm sure we must have nearly hit double figures on the amount of times it took until we could race in a full lobby. Personally I haven't done much online racing yet as you could see from my licence so wasn't fully aware of this. If the games broken, why don't we wait until it's fixed?

I don't overly agree on how the points are done, but that's not for me to decide.  Congratulations still go to Bird for overcoming the conditions.

Either way, what's done is done and we accept what has gone on.  As long as there is full clarity on lobby settings and the game is working, all is good. 

Not related - P.s. Don't try to take the piss in front of a lobby
