    Online ruined

    Yeah, basically playing online is p****g me off. Can anybody play online without hitting anyone? For me online was a big thing in P.Cars. But for god sake, people running into the back of you because they are incompetant of braking or learning the track is really getting me down. This is an almost perfect game being ruined.

    that's what you get with console race games. I quit playing Forza online because of that reason. i hate when people think they have won the race after the first corner.

    they really need to make the punishments harder if you hit someone.

    Well, my best Advice for this:

    Wait a Week or two and then you will found much less "Crash Kiddies".

    Also AFAIK it will be worked on a false Way Penalty (DQ) in MP...

    Use this forum to find like minded mature individuals and set up a league with a private password protected session.

    (I joined a lobby full of French guys on Friday night ans was amazed how well everyone was driving, very clean, very fair. All new driver's none WMD members.)

    I'll admit to judging people harshly from time to time, but the truth is there are a lot of people who simply don't know the limits of their vehicles yet. It'd be nice if everyone took the time to practice in single-player before joining a lobby, but the draw for online play is pretty high. And then keep in mind that tracks and vehicle types are apt to change rapidly between sessions. So it's highly likely that people joined a lobby expecting a specific track/car combo that they're comfortable with, only to have it quickly change to something else entirely.

    I've been rammed from behind so many times in online races, I should be giving virtual reach-arounds.

    I use the view where I can see my whole car at the beggining of races. It definitely helps me escape a lot of crashes. Once people settle down I go back to my preferred cam. Not being able to see cars alongside you when using interior view has always been a problem in racing games.

    The biggest issue is what's already been mentioned; people aren't taking the time to practice and learn the physics of the game on their own - instead they are hoping to do so in an online multiplayer lobby, which is fine - they've paid for the game after all!

    But I understand your frustration and I think that something should be put in place to punish drivers, but how can a computer game determine whether the driver hit the back of you intentionally or unintentionally for example.

    I'm hoping to find some clean racing lobbies on Xbox One.

    It's not just console racers, I was in a lobby last night on PC with the same drivers. They're everywhere. As mentioned, the only thing you can do to limit your exposure to this is find some clean folks to race with.
