    Multiplayer lobby car class set to 'identical' on host migration

    My apologies if this has been reported already, but couldn't find a report on this in a quick search;

    Situation:
    When in a multiplayer lobby, and the host leaves the lobby, a new host is assigned.

    Result:
    Sometimes immediately, but other times after the new host changes the track or car class, the car choice restriction goes from "Same Class" to "Identical". This can not be changed afterwards, so a new lobby needs to be created.

    Obviously it would be nice if this could be fixed, but it also raises the question why this setting can not be changed once a lobby has been set up.

    Shit, now i'm that douchebag that posts in the wrong forum 😬. If someone could move this to the tech support i would be much obliged

    True, it is too bad when the host drops the room settings go to the standards

    Its one of the other oddities of this game. Just another option that was overlooked. Great way to kill a great lobby is no changes can be made unless everyone leaves and starts over. Same reason why multiclass lobbies do not have any indication that its MS until you get into look around.

    I can’t believe they still haven’t patched this bug. I don’t understand why the lobby host doesn’t have the option change that setting from the lobby. I’m not sure when the next update patch is coming or if this is being fixed. It feels like SMS have our money and are happy to leave the game unfinished.

    Be careful Dean, that's not what you are expected to write on the official forums

    This is one of those "features" that can be really frustrating when you've just completed a race in lobby or looking for a new race and the host suddenly decides to leave.

    Haha yeah, although if you give feedback and they ignore it, at some point you have to be more brutal with your criticism

    I paid a lot of money for this game and bought all the DLC, so I am entitled to moan!
