Hi,
I would like to ask which platform has the best online community for PCars, is it that of the PC or PS4?
thanks

The PS4 version sold more copies than the PC. Therefore, the PS4 is likely to have more active total players. Neither community is "better" or "the best".

More players doesn't necessarily mean more active online community, especially taking into account that online on PS4 requires a paid subscription while online on PC is free.

If you're already on PC, a good way to have access to great online race is to gradually build up a steam friend list. From there, you can tag them as pCars(or whatever you want).

It takes some times but you'll be able to create online lobbies, with enough quality drivers, that give great races!

im on pc already but the lobbies are quite poor ... to start a race sometimes it takes 15min, than you find someone that crashes in you at the first corner

That won't change between platforms. Join up with a league and you will always have cleaner races. Not that's there aren't crashes in leagues but they are much less deliberate.

Another option to get rid of rammers is to create a lobby with full damage & penalties enabled, and restrict driving aids to either real or off.

The main benefit of leagues is the addition preparation. In most cases, people in public lobbies may have run the select car/track combination (let along in a crowd). It makes T1 on the first lap a nightmare in most cases. With league races, the schedule is set so everyone is preparing for the same car/track combination. Doesn't mean there won't be T1/L1 incidents but they will be much less.

As also mentioned earlier, make some friends with Steam. When you race with someone who is good and fair, friend them on Steam. Eventually, you can build up a little group who likes to run together.
