Are they coming? I can't find anything since a post stating "Multiplayer Lobby in Testing" a week or so ago. I really enjoy this game but am getting a teeny bit bored hot lapping.
When searching for a lobby with no assists I enter Circuit, Any,Any, Pro and almost always end up in a lobby with all assists - Am I doing something wrong?
When creating an all assists off lobby I will go into quali and in 1/2 hour may get 1 or 2 people who join but they usually leave so back to another 1/2 hr quali ad nauseum, is there any way to increase my chances of filling a room?
Any answers gratefully recieved.

I am NOT Bitching

Unfortunately the answer is probably "allow some assists" :(

I also don't play much online for the same reason, run a league on a Thursday and thats pretty much it, everything else is just practicing or hotlapping.

I could let'm have ABS I guess - in fact that might stop them taking me out in the first corner too .... maybe not....

I just cant brake a little bit. I dont have the same control with the left trigger as I do with the right one. I NEED my ABS lol.

With regards to filling the lobby up, I think it may be due to the assist's being off that your struggling to fill a lobby. Im in a public lobby most nights, assists are allowed, and people seem to join fairly quickly. After 1 or 2 races there is usually around 10-12 people. Last night it was awesome, we had 14 people, all racing clean. Then 2 dickheads joined and ruined it. (Thats a different thread).

If I were to join your lobby, and see no ABS, that would be my main reason for hightailing it outta there. ;)

YES YOU DO! WE ALL HAVE THIS ABILITY INSIDE OF US!

It is really good when you get a good lobby going, best racer by far.

I race only without assists and I often ( whilst wetting myself with laughter watching all the noobs who can't drive without assists fly off the track or spin on the spot ) consider whether I should force assists on - nah.

Back on topic, He's wanting to know how long it will be before he will be able to search for a pro lobby and have it actually find a pro lobby and not through him into a whatever it finds lobby. Yes same problem here also, nine times out of ten when I search pro it will find something other than pro. Please no trolling MXR SMILER these guys are frustrated enough without your comments. Thank you.

At least you get to play. Tonight we we're racing with our group and the game crashed to dashboard 4 times in 3 races. When this thing works it's amazing but on nights like this it's a one big pile of frustration.

I hope the multiplayer is getting fixed, because I'm running out of patience. Such a waste of this beautiful engine.

I am a newbie when it comes to forums and I had to Google 'to troll'. I don't consider my comment to be trolling but will avoid comments of a similar nature in future posts. I quite like my horse thanks and maybe your next comment will contain something constructive or funny even? And as far as I can tell your comment was a lot more trollish than mine. Any way back to the OP - anyone have any news on MP fixes? Please.

I race with no assists, and usually beat the losers who play bumper cars who use assists, to the point where they quit.

I know this probably isn't going to help you, but it should bring you satisfaction knowing that you are crushing the assist using short bus crowd. Play like you are a cut above, and you shall receive the rewards that being a top tier sim racer should be netting.

Add me bro, we can bring home the 1-2's all night till the assists users quit. Lol.

I didn't even realize this game had a guiding line until I watched someone's game clip the other day, lol.

Tire marks on the track are so much better guides than the guiding line...

I think we'll have to wait for the next big Xbox one update from Microsoft in the fall before any of this gets fixed.

Come on Optical, you're better at detecting sarcasm than that.

Some people honestly don't know. Took me a few weeks after the game came out to realize that watching the track was so much more accurate than following a blindingly bright line that makes you ignore how beautiful this game really is.
