    a very strange issue in a lobby (for the devs)

    yesterday I got on one of public servers and after a skirmish with a very known rammer,
    i saw that my name existed in the list five times. 3rd place was my time and the other entrys was 27,28,29,30
    Is it possible that someone can spam accounts ?
    apparently there is an issue because i have not seen this before.

    Check it

    ps if you need the name of this guy just tell me. (its not so hard to figure who is this guy )

    Could be a couple of guys having "fun" and all using the same Steam nickname for this occasion.

    Steam works off ID's, not character names. However, it's likely a glitch in the MP code. I've seen pCARS glitch before and show my Steam Name more than once in the driver list on a server. It's been a long time since I've seen it happen, but it had to do with me joining, leaving and re-joining the same server (i.e. to change cars).

    There seem to be an issue where a player name exist several times in the list.
    Yesterday i experienced this in several lobbies where my name was present 3 times in random places, only one being the representation of my current place in qualifying.
    Also the the qualifying ranking contained more entries then people present in the lobby.

    As of the race result i haven't been aware if the issue exist there as well.
