Do you have a Active Filter on? Right now i see 138 and in the morning at your time im sure there was also more then just 9 Servers.

Edit: sorry was not noticing your on Xbox... this was on PC:

On PC last night at about 9pm I went onto Multiplayer and saw at least 20+ lobbies of all sorts. I then went to filter and searched GT3, there were still 20+ lobbies but now all were GT3. I think it shows you a limited amount, and then based on your search filters shows you the limited amount but just on that filtered search. I'd check your search filters and make sure it isn't filtering out full lobbies or safety rankings etc. There are a LOT of lobbies which are safety ranked at U1500.

I think it must be slightly different on pc. I have every filter off. It’s bizarre

Top right corner bryan, you click on the filter icon and it pops up a modal with filter options, you can save and it will reload the browser.

There is bugs surrounding the filtering currently, be patient.

Check if your filter sets Hide Empty= on? I set mine to off for more servers.

Yesterday I couldn't attend a league race because the dedicated server didn't show up. After the first frustration I clicked myself through steam settings and found a solution, which might be worth trying for you guys.

Under steam -> settings -> ingame on the bottom is something called maximum pings per minute. Strangely this defaulted to 1000 for me while checking with a few of my mates it was 5000 default for them. Seems my PC was unable to ping the server, increasing the value made the dedicated server show up for me.

Also before this change, with no filter ingame enabled, I could find 110 lobbies, after the change 150!
