    Kicking the leader

    This game is getting super ridicolous, I just got kicked from a race for leading the race. 3 friends aparently racing in same session are kicking anyone who is faster than them. Lost 30 rating point because this flawless multiplayer system.

    True, but is it common (or fair) for race leaders to incur deductions/penalties against their license rating for getting kicked by sore-losing hosts?

    IMHO in trying to punish quitters there are more innocent victims(for multiple reasons including this one) than the system does good.

    Can't the rating work on per lap basis? so if you get disconnected or kicked after 50% of the race while a good position you at least only lose half the points you would normally? It's kind of unfair to subtract the full amount for missing only a small percentage of laps especially if it's not your fault or in this case the opposite of that.

    It's like saying 30% innocents in prison is okay because you at least put the bad guys away too.
    If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough.

    I disagree, there are more innocent victims complaining imo (I don't say they are not right ! just the voice minority).

    I'd like the ranking and SR system take not only the results at the end of the race but at the beginning too. This way quitters would be less a big deal as they are just DNF at the end and the points are calculated with them. I don't know if it's a possible thing to change or not in the future.

    Let's say you are 20 at the beginning and 5 at the end. The system take only the 5 and punish the 15 quitters. I propose to take the 5 + 15 DNF at the end for the ranking and less punish the quitters (only the points they should loose to be last), if it's possible.
