    A little story.

    Let me start off by saying i have been with PCars since 2011, have been an avid supporter and have always tried to defend where possible this game that despite everything, i do love.

    Last night i tried to race online, the biggest part of the game for me, dont race too much single player as i get a little bored racing with AI, but thats me.

    So on to last night, i wanted to race gt3, i managed to have 1 race before it all went tits up, here roughly is my nights racing.

    Finish my one race and go back to main menu
    Select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race
    enter race no drive button
    back to main menu
    select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race(same one)
    enter race no drive button
    back to main menu
    select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race(same one)
    enter race stuck on bumper cam
    back to main menu
    select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race(different one)
    enter race no drive button
    back to main menu
    select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race(same one)
    enter race stuck on bumper cam
    back to main menu
    select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race(different one)
    enter race lobby, race in progress cant join
    back to main menu
    select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race(different one)
    enter race lobby, race in progress cant join
    back to main menu
    select online
    select filter
    select gt3
    select pro
    choose race(different one)
    enter race lobby no qualy straight to race, game hangs on loading screen, ctrl,alt,delete, kill the game.

    Turn off pc.

    As much as i will never stop playing PCars i am at a loss how long this has been a major issue and still remains a major issue, seems worse for me since patch 2.0

    It is can only be something that is either hard to fix or hard to find the cause, if it were an easy fix or easy to diagnose and fix it would have been fixed by now, i am guessing its just hard to find the cause of it and not the fact it cant be completely fixed.

    I really hope its not a bug that never gets resolved as it is not something that happens all the time, but tonight it completely prevented me from racing.

    Rant over.

    What seems to help me is to manually select a "different" car than what was automatically chosen for me when I join a session in progress.

    OP, apparently if you race against the AI, you won't have any of those issues. At least that's what I was told yesterday by some WMD guys.

    I saw that, and saw the further explanation from guy who wrote it.
    If you didn't like, and you didn't cuz I read it! Why are you doing the same with OP right here?
    Now you should show some polite attitude and try to explain what you really meant like happened to you yesterday.

    Some humans… never mind

    I'm just offering the OP the same option that was offered to the guy in that thread. He had similar issues and racing against AI was offered as an option. I'm just doing the same here, offering an option.

    Let's clarify what I saw:
    You said you want to have some online gaming but it was impossible to go online and you do not have much time to spend "searching" for lobbies with the current PC interface. Someone understood only the "no time" part and suggested that you shoud try AI. After that, you did complained about it, than the guy tried to explain his POV and why he said that. Yeap, he was offering an option so you could have some fun. Not the best one butů

    I'm sorry, but IMO you were just trying to spread some poison around here instead helping the OP.

    BTW: driving AI @100% with no assists are indeed a pretty good option, even better than those ramming kids online.

    OP, my suggestion: try to find a league for now. I believe things will get settle down and we will see online games with a better interface and must of all, better players.
