    You lost points... sh*t happens.

    As for your current number being under what it should, in that case you should have no problem increasing it.

    This thread is once again proof that there must be some in-game info referring to the forums where the Competitive Racing License is explained in details.

    Campo675, stay awesome.

    The WMD guys did their research I'm dogmatically convinced of that. I actually agree with the majority of your points and the other guys comments too. I feel that it would be valid for WMD to do some 'balancing' of the points system or at least provide more info to the users. (instead of just this one page)

    At least threads like this should raise a discussion point on the current ranking system.
    WMD Dev's .. please refine our scoring.. I promise you I'm actually pro!

    You won't lose points if you retire to pits and watch the race, just don't leave the lobby (well i think it works that way, i've done it twice and didn't get penalized). When the game came out, i've rage quitted a few times and quickly learned to never do it again

    I am sitting on 85 online race starts with 10 wins, 35 podiums, 45 top 5... not the best stats ever but I the points I lost werent because I was finishing 13th or 14th etc. they were almost all because of bugs, trolls bashing my car up or other unfair incidents that did not reflect my potential at all

    I have many single player races, but I have VR and the only one in the family and group of friends and neighbours with a VR headset and wheel etc. so many of the single player stats are from people coming over to race and feel VR. Actually really great to see how much people enjoy it!

    ( I did not post these stats because I think I'm good or I think I suck, I just posted it for added visual information to aid in explaining my idea)

    Agreed, it sucks when this happens, but it happens to everybody, so it's not that the system is unfair to you.In my opinion the right question to ask is how to get rid of those trolls or avoid them, not how to change the rating system. Also to point (..) out that some more fixes are necessary, in order to avoid points removed due to bugs. But as I said, this happens to everybody anyway.

    I definitely did not mention this because I feel that it is only unfair to me, lol. I mention this as I think there is a better way to do it. I am not a coder or developer but I cant imagine it being easier to sort out a system that gives points when it should and not deduct when it shouldnt or deduct when it should, moderate every single incident on track, calculate if whos fault it was, how hard the impact was, was it deliberate etc etc. (it cant be easy thing to write and I do have great respect for the amount of work needed to do something like this.) vs. just not deducting points... all the incidents that are currently happening will still happen, but for the people on the receiving end it wouldnt feel like a double wammy

    OK, so what do you suggest should be done to avoid people quitting races when they see they do not win? In the first game, this was a nightmare, we had races that started with 20+ people and only 3-4 remained till the end. The current system of deducing points when not finishing the races has been working brilliantly in that matter so far, usually more than 75% of the players stay till the end.

    It worked also for me personally, at some point I was also very angry about the trolls or idiots, so that when they rammed me, I just quit, instead of returning the favor. At some point I reached 1200 ranking or lower and did not care at all, but when I saw that there are events that require high rating, I changed my mind
