View Full Version : "Away from Keyboard" drivers...

Something needs to be done about "away from keyboard" drivers. Drivers end up plowing into these cars at the start and lap after lap during a race, as you come around to the front straight, you have to navigate through cars left abandoned in the middle of the track. Last night, in an online race at Dubai, I counted 9 cars, from a field of 25, that sat idle indefinitely on the starting grid, making it a slalom course and the end of each lap. Idle cars need to be disqualified after 1 minute of inactivity and be sent back to the pit box.

What should also happen hear is that from the lobby, any driver that has NOT selected 'Ready' should be left behind in the lobby when the game launches. Simple really.

Thought about that as an option. But I can see some poor driver running back from the bathroom trying to reach the ready button in time, only to miss it by a few seconds.

He should hit the ready button before he goes to the bathroom then. It's really the best solution, I suggested it here already: http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/showthread.php?26071-Online-Lobby-Possibility-To-Sit-Out-Races

It was a pet peeve of mine in Forza but I am guilty of doing it, last night was my first time online I had no idea how quickly the race started after qualy :eek:

All these players should be autokicked from server after 10 seconds and having negative points added to their profile. If driver rating is even implemented, I don't think it is at this point...
