Well done SMS with your brilliant E sport multiplayer lobby UI. Tonight I missed my 2nd Organised (ESL go4 and AOR ) event thanks to you bunch.

I could not find the lobbies I was suppose to join because they did not appear on the lobby list, I set various filters, organized alphabetically, refreshed many times, even restarted the game, the same lobbies appeared everytime and not the lobby that I needed.

Are you guys fixing this mess?? Or will we just have to stay with assetto corsa?

And before you say I could've joined directly from steam via an invite to the lobby, I play in VR ( another one of your selling points) and if you joined from an invite the game has no option to join in VR

I agree the lobby still needs some tweaking especially for the PC. We should be able to filter out by name (as in typing the name or the first few letters), lobbies that friends are in, plus a few other QOL features for lobby searching like favorites. As for not being able to accept invites into the lobbies while in VR. What I do is run the game mirrored and windowed.. so when I get an invite I just alt tab lift up my headset and use the mouse to accept it. It's not perfect, but it might help you out next time. Sorry you missed your race, I know it's frustrating i've been there before.

Hi Clanky,
Thank you for the reply, I'm hoping I won't have issues again

I don’t see the E-Sport built in to be in the game? It’s just a link to webpages?

But they dedicated a WHOLE settings tab for it. And four whole links in it. Do you know how long it takes to integrate such stuff?

There are other issues why it's currently not e-sport ready from my point of view.

Haha everytime i saw interview with developers they always said e-sport from day one...this is totally faulse advertisement.

I don't mind if they want to copy Gran Turismo Sport method. GT Sport has daily races when you can join every 5-10 minutes. You basically can race forever and will always matched with players with the same level, that makes the ranking make sense.

Hi guys. The esports game features refers to things like the Competitive Racing License and the new Director and Broadcaster mode for livestreaming, which have been in the game since launch. We're also working on some improvements to these features, and some extra stuff that will come to the game in free updates.

News about specific championships will follow once we are ready to announce them.

For now, we recommend that you check out the ESL Go4 Cups (http://www.projectcarsesports.com/go4.html) and some of our favourite community leagues (http://www.projectcarsesports.com/leagues.html) to keep your skills sharp.

Good to hear that you are working on improvments. But I would recommend to get the basics done first. Yesterday there was supposed to be an evaluation race of one of your favorite community leagues which had to be cancelled due to ongoing server / dicsonnect issues (at least 4 unsuccessful attempts).

Furthermore it is quit annoying that often the FFB just get's lost. Then people need to restart the game (and reconnect if they can) to get FFB working again. These are basic functions which need to work reliably for any eSport event.

P.S.: If pCARS 2 can't handle a lobby of 32 vehicles reduce the amount of vehicles to the number which can be handled. If you think that this is on client side you might take that too easy - at least on my side I was (with the same hardware and internet connection) participating 24 hr races together with 50 other teams w/o any disconnect issues.

I had this happen to me a few times, and now I know unplugging/re-plugging my usb cable and restarting the game fixes it. But a couple weeks ago I was in a league race, and I had so much trouble getting into the lobby as I'm using VR, that I joined qualifying late. So I wouldn't of even had time to restart the game. So I did the whole qualifying & race with a limp wheel, no tension at all. Didn't do so good :(
Anyway glad to know it's not only happening to me, I thought it might be my wheel, I'm using a Logitech G27. Hopefully this gets fixed.

You mean this Director and Broadcaster mode?
