Pretty much a compulsory function surely? Isnt trash talking and friendly competition the main point of the leaderboards if you arent top 10 like most of the world? How can we do this if we cant find our friends times? ;)

I've been searching for this option on PC, too. I thought, surely there's a way to see my friends times without having to go through the list one page at a time. I would like to see a filter option for friends, same car, people that cheat ;), etc.

I think this is a good suggestion!

I just assumed the filter existed on PC tbh, or I wouldnt have worded my title the way I have! lol

i don't know why this option is missing, isn't it in every racing game

all of these! with all that pCars has to offer, this is a pretty big oversight, in my opinion. i couldn't care less about the top 10 times and all the 'crews' that dominate those areas. show me my friends and how i compare to them. that's the real fun!

They had deadlines, lets hope they amalgamate a straight forward spreadsheet program to search out the competition/friends. I wouldn't mind it as a dlc!? 2 quid for a hot lapper pack? Lol

+1 Leaderboards are no fun without a friends filter.

This is just a basic function and it's really surprising that it's not in the game. It would be good if you could set up custom time trials as well (like drive clubs challenges). As far as I can see, you can't change the weather or time of day settings for the time trials. As the game has variable weather and time of day, this just seems like a missed opportunity.

Stil, hoping to see this added. I was hoping it would be in the big update, but alas, no, other things took priority. But it would be cool to hear if there are any plans to work on the leaderboards and the filter options in console.

Having formula rookie and formula A, GT3 and GT4, Clios and Touring cars all in each others "classes"/filters really li its the options for hotlapping massively. Not to mention only having ghosts for the top 30.

Love for a dev to comment on any possibility for future improvements....

You know guys, I love hearing things like 'even GT had this'. GT was something we aspired to being mentioned in the same breath as initially.

We'll work on it.

For enlightenment.

Compare us to cross platform racers. The reason I state this is that it's clear if you're PD working 1st party on a console exclusive and are owned by said 1st party then you have an easier time with implementing things like this. Same goes for Forza/Turn 10.

That's not to in any way say we won't work on it. We will. What we have isn't good enough and it will get better.

I would like to +1 this feature also, for me time trials is a big part of any racing game I play and to be able to see friends times would be the icing on the cake.

Thanks for taking it onboard Ian

And while your working on it any chance of a cross platform leaderboard :p that would truely set you head and shoulders above the rest :)

We can't do it. Not our limitation this time :)

Another reason I only race on pcars now.
An actual response and hope that we will get it.
I just wish I wasn't at work and could go set up my t3pa pro pedals to have 'one more race' in the formula c around Brno

Maybe someone could let us all know if there are other racing games with friends filters? I know Trials Fusion has it for example. ;)

In the patch 2.0 there will be friends filter on leaderboards ? And what about friends ghost ? I don't see in the list...

Friends filter and the ability to use friends ghosts in TT are definitely features I'd like to see added eventually.
I spend most of my time in TT.

Plus one on the friends filter for time trials. Not bothered about x platform so no loss there, but on ps4, yeah, definite plus one

Forza

Irrelevant, not cross-platform. Loads of games have them, but we are discussing cross-platform games looking for examples. ;)

Speaking of which, games like Call of Duty have friends filters on leaderboards.....so does it need to be a racing game as an example Ian? A leaderboard is a leaderboard for this discusion isnt it?

+1 for this as well this is one of the big reasons TT works its great to see what your friends have lapped and in want car. DriveClub had this when it first came out shame the network was poo.
