    Online races - I can't see the point in even trying

    OK, I'm venting, but so far my online experience has been a complete waste of time due to the childish behavior of other drivers.
    Every race I start ends by the first or second corner by deliberate ramming and shunting, just like every other multiplayer racer with the exception of iRacing.

    I know a rating system is on the way. It better be good.

    You have to change your strategy from trying to be 1st to trying to finish without incidents, if you're racing with random U-rated players.

    Once you're F+, pick F+ races and it should be cleaner.

    I had some really good races today after a less good start a few days ago.

    Once you get bigger fields, unless everyone is experienced, it's going to be messy.

    But I think once the ratings system starts to wind up after people get more races beneath their belt then it'll be much better - provided you're racing cleanly yourself.

    If everyone is trying to be last, you'll race with cautious drivers then

    I have to say that the drivers I've run into in PCARS 2 have been the most childish, nightmarish, line crossing group I've ever raced with in any game. It's like the hype for this game stirred up the sediment in the community and now the general attitude online is essentially axe murder. It's pretty rough at the moment out in the feral public lobbies.

    But, having said that, also this online rating system has provided some leverage in the mayhem and provided me with hands down the best racing I've ever done. It's definitely both sides of the coin right now. But if you get your safety rating to like D or C and race with people like that then you can have a great time. The big thing is being able to spot people you want to avoid. Like if you see a lobby with some F1121 and U1230 get TF out of there.

    My best advice is to hold back at the start.. Sure you wont be in the leading pack but you are more likely to be able to climb back up the field when the newer drivers who dont know the braking points (remember not everyone is experienced) and the rammers inevitably go off track.

    Focus on building your rep first then go for the win once you can lock out U and F rank racers..
