View Full Version : Multiplayer Host Quit during race

25-09-2017, 13:06
I know im nitpicking with all the problems that pc2 is going right now this is minor one , or how to say it,

i was playing some monza run with 10 ppl passed qualify round ,during the race of the 1st race lap , a mesage poped up that i got removed from the race , probably host quit or what?
anyway the issue is that i had 1474 rating now 1434...not sure it's fair when host quits race.

Nope, Host-Migration is implemented...

If the Host Quits, the next Player will become Host. However, if the new Host is on a Bad Connection such things can happen.

Sadly such Rating Systems can't know if you have quitted the Race (Plugged the Cable) or the Server Crashed.

It's a minor downside to the System, but not solveable.

Keep Racing, because the System needs some time to Balance.

We'll investigate what can be done about this host quit problem. It should not negatively affect the rating of remaining players, not your fault.

Is there not a way for you put code in the game to detect if the player actually presses the quit session button? Just an idea and obviously i know nothing about coding just wondering if that's possible.

Yes, we already detect a "retire" vs. a "disconnect" and we penalize both.

The problem with detection of quit is when is it an accident or intentional - There is really no way to know.

ESC - (Yes i quit)
ALT F4 - (Yes i quit)
Hit power button or reset (Possible to detect) dependant on hardware
Pulled power cord (Disconnect or quit) ?? Maybe it was a power failure
Network dropped out (I pulled router cord) - Disconnect or quit ?
Network Latency - Bad network, or lag switch turned on ??

So as you cant tell you have 2 options - No penalty, or Penalty. As people will quit, decision was to apply penalty as i understand it. If you have network issues or disconnects, work with your ISP or get your wife/girlfriend off netflix ;)

Oh I wasn't aware, question which gets penalized more?
