View Full Version : ESL Playstation Plus Club, anyone have an idea how the race set-up works?

I have signed up for the ESL PlayStation Plus Cup (http://www.projectcarsgame.com/home/sign-up-for-the-project-cars-playstation-plus-cup-europe-today) which was advertised on the Project Cars homepage. I have no clue how the race setup works (e.g. how do I actually get into the race I'm supposed to race), and there's no info in the FAQ on the ESL website. Basically I know where I have to race but the name of my opponent hasn't been announced yet.

Do I have to set up the race myself and then try to find my opponent (if I would know the name) or is there going to be an ESL-specific lobby or something? I also contacted ESL support, but thought maybe someone on the forum here might know?

I need to know this too. Any one?

I received a reply from Support, this is what they sent:

"You or your opponent needs to create a private lobby. There'll be a match chat on the ESL page to talk with your opponent."

Earlier, when I asked how to find out about my opponent, I received: "The matches will be generated very soon (before 20:00 CEST)."

However, it is 20.13 CEST now and I still don't see any opponent - it still says 'HiSpeeder vs to be determined', so I think I'll quit waiting in a few minutes. Something must have gone wrong on the match set-up.

Hmm, at 20.15 CEST I suddenly was given a 'default win' and now a new race is scheduled for this Wednesday, this time I did get an opponent assigned. I wonder if they failed to make the matches or if I just got lucky? In any case, I still have the private race lobby open, Fuburubu feel like doing the race on Willow Springs against me? I'll send you an invite.

I'm still waiting. Not sure how it works as the person I was matched against hasn't turned up

Then you get an automatic win after 15 mins.

2.2. No show
If a contestant is not ready to play, 15 minutes after the scheduled match time, then they should be reported as a no show to an admin.

Thanks. Just reported it. I waited over 15 mins, sent invites etc and nothing. Lets see what happens now.

I hope that I get the win credited.
