I would like to have your opinion. I saw several servers on a 1 lap race. I don't think it's fun at all and it's just for upgrade the safety/rank.
I don't really know if it's even usefull for that, but i'd like in the next path that we can't race less than xxx kms (not a lap number because of Nordschleife).
What do you guys think ?

Was it a point to point race?

It was a 1 lap race at Spa, before that (twice) another 1 lap on regular tracks I do not remember. Actually I don't see the point (seems you like points !) ^^.
If it's a way to improve the rank / safety rating, it would be nice to avoid it in next patch.

why should they change the game?? if you don't like that short races - as me - just don't join them?...
i joined some short race lobbys (1/2 laps). but only if i see theres only 1-4 people and when they are "not that fast rated" - so to speak.
because then it's easy for me. i see their "trick" / try to "gain easy points" - and turn it to my favour.

What I did. Just report that some people seems to try to abuse the game. I'm afraid the lobby could be full of these 1 lap servers if the trick is effective.
I'd like to know what is better for the rank, 10 "1 lap" race with 10 players or 1 "10 laps" race with the same players. I hope there is not much difference.

If nothing changed with the patch (I doubt it but not enough races yet) 10x1l will be exactly 10x more "effective". Given same players and outcome ofcourse.

How is it abuse? The only thing you can achieve is reach your actual level earlier. You will never get S3000 if it's not the level you are supposed to be at.

It's the same as saying people who don't race Rad Bulls, and are safely racing those boring GT3's, are boosting their safety rating. Or people who avoid rain/snow races. Or only race on one track/car combo they know by heart.

Alot of people do 'Track Day' Lobbies which are usually Practice and Qualy sessions which last several hours- they're not bothered about the race so they just do a 1 lapper

There used to be a couple Nordschliefe ones in the 1st game for Historics and Road Cars which I used quite a bit when trying to learn the track. I don't know if there are any going in this game: I haven't used online much at all yet

Just a quick question about online lobby (instead of opening a new thread) when I am looking for a lobby to join you have info on what kind of a session it is with 4 letters S/P/Q/R what the hell does the "S" stand for? Stupid I know but for the life of me I can't figure it out lol

Edit: I just reread my own question I think I got it know LOL maybe "Safety rating" on?
