    Inherited Lobby.

    Every time a host quits his (the) server I become host.
    Not now and again nor sometimes,,, but every time.

    It's not my fast internet because I don't have a fast internet.
    Most certainly not my rank because it ranks
    Alphabetical order either, I've checked for that

    I'm not the oldest guy around so it ain't that

    Please advise, I would really like to know, it's become a fact that I can no longer ignore or deny.
    Why me ?

    I often become the host too and don't know the criteria.
    It's not a big deal but almost every time I become the host I have an annoying bug : no more green lights at the start. Neither the HUD lights or the ones on the track. It's like I'm desynchronized.

    I have an annoying bug :
    Can't say I've noticed that but I will most certainly keep my eyes peeled the next time I inherit a Lobby.

    At least on PC1 I remember the next host in line was the first driver that joined the lobby unless he/she left so the order would be the next available driver in the order of having joined the lobby. I wonder if it is still the same.

    EDIT: by the way I am on PS4 if that makes a difference.

    Yes, this^^, first person to join after the host will be the next in line if the host leaves, you must have been joining right after the host or others that were in line to be host left leaving you as the next host.

    No, that's not it I'm sure, I often join in the last few minutes during qualif and I always look for at least a dozen drivers.
    Oh well, one of life's mysteries I suppose.

    I'm more intrigued by the possibility of the loss of starting lights being related when becoming the host.
    This has happened in the past and I've a sneaking doubt that the two are related.
    To be confirmed...

    Thanks.

    Maybe you only notice when you get the lobby?
    I mean, others might be getting the lobby some times without you noticing, but when you get it you know?

    Just to confirm it happened again twice this morning. The host left, I was P1 and inherited the lobby. I had no green lights at the start twice.

    I also had the situation where the lights were on but in desync, once leaving me standing and the other time led to me speeding off before others.

    I assume that this is a known and serious issue, if we take into consideration that most servers are PP and that many by the way the system is founded are inherited.
    Balles & myself are not the only to become host after the original server creator has left so this (may) concerns many.

    I believe that inherited server results in race Start desync

    Still no idea why I always become host but that has become a secondary matter.

    Thanks...

    Update :

    I received a Host Migration Failed message (or something similar) and subsequent disconnect.
    When back in the server browser I could see the server showing Boneboys as host.

    I joined my own server and continued as normal, starting lights were present at race start with no noticeable desync.
    Midway through the race I lost connection to the server, I've no idea why and the message was standard with no real loss of points (I will check later to confirm).

    Have fun...
