    Can anything be done about rammers?

    Playing a bit online now and man, the entire experience is ruined by rammers. I am not even sure WHAt the answer is but are there any plans to try and get on top of it for PC2?

    PCARS 2 will have a competitive racing license which (after the initial days of playing) should result in only likeminded players being grouped together for multiplayer.

    With eSports growing ever popular in the gaming world in general sim racing has perhaps been a little bit slow on the take up. With many of the current crop of racing games adhering to the traditional format of online lobbies and organised private league and club racing events, only iRacing.com have really cornered the market for mass multiplayer experiences and such bells and whistles as driver ranking and large scale sponsored competitive racing schedules.

    The original Project CARS game released by Slightly Mad Studios back in 2015 made several tentative steps towards fully supporting this growing aspect of online play, and it seems the British developers have taken another large stride towards establishing the franchise as a major player in the world of large scale virtual sim racing.

    With Project CARS 2 due to drop for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows PC towards the end of the current year, recent information released by the developers suggest the new game will be feature rich in support of those players looking to experience a more structured and accessible way to participate in online racing events.

    The new Project CARS 2 game will be supporting eSports right from day one this time, with several features built into the software that look to make a considerable improvement over more traditional online functionality.

    Much like iRacing do with their hugely successful racing "service", SMS have looked to create a ranked multiplayer experience in the new game, with drivers earning ratings based on their performances out on the track. Three key areas that Project CARS 2 will be looking to monitor in the new title will be on track behaviour, experience in game and the results of the player in comparison to their rivals within the event.

    Slightly Mad Studios will do this by making use of some inbuilt technology within the game that tracks statistics using an "enhanced Elo-based rating system". In an attempt to perform a matchmaking service where players can be placed in events with drivers of similar statistics, the new functionally has been designed to help direct the safer and more serious racers into the same events, helping to reduce the number of occasions when players looking to cause trouble during a race spoil the fun of those in search of a more competent experience.

    The three categories that will be covered in the new rating system are:

    Seniority
    The more you play, the more your Seniority increases. At a glance you'll be able to see which drivers are new to the game, and which are veterans.

    Racecraft
    Your conduct out on the track is known as your Racecraft. The more professional you are, the more it will increase. Break the rules however and it will decrease. Use this to see who can be trusted out on the tarmac, and who is there just to cause grief for others.

    Success
    The more you win, the more your Success is affected. We take into account the length of the race, the number of other drivers, and their own competitiveness too. So beat players of a higher skill level and it'll increase a lot, lose against players of lower skill than your own and it'll decrease.

    As well as performing a matchmaking function these new statistics can also be used as a minimum requirement when hosting your own events, leagues and championships.

    Can the racing license be effected by Single player?

    Imo the only rammer that should be allowed in racing sims is the one made by Dodge. Hopefully SMS's online ranking system will be successful at grouping clean players together, and dirty players will be grouped together in their wreckfest dark lobby of doom.

    Collisions on/off. It's as simple as that.

    Devs don't seem willing to add this primary thing though that every other racer features. Must be more of that story of personal preferences

    I saw ghosting option in the menu video so you should be good. That is not racing though if they are ghosted, Its a lame car parade that develops no race craft or awareness skills. Great for arcade style players who have no respect for real drivers though.
