I've not done time trials there for around 5 months but my time is still top 30 in my gt1, and i wasn't tying overly hard, did i mention i use a contoller? lol.

    Online ratings mean exactly zero. Don't get a mistake in.

    That will be all.
    1) Time trial TT means nothing in race pace
    2) TT player pool is so small, any decent lap there is top 50 (trust me, I did my TS040 lap only once, landed top 19 back in PC1)
    2) Car performances were adjusted since
    3) Being fast is cool and all, even more when you're in the sand trap because you can't race with others, said it yourself, you don't do online.
    4)Since the game launched, online was by far the most stable side of the game, greatly aided by the server size limits.
    5)I'm on a controller too, means nothing
    6)That is not even the topic

    I could go on, but I think you get the point.

    @Zeem : reviews are always polarizing , either all is well or nothing is working and when you have a pleasant eperience is easier to stay on the game and enjoy it rather than going out of you way to leave a positive review. When you are angry at the game on the other hand... It can it quite motivating to write a review. The same goes for the forums.

    Judging by the general decline in forum activity combined with player count in multiplayer lobbies, it does kind of suggest that interest levels in PC2 on XB1 aren't (and probably never have been) anywhere near the user levels generated on PS4 and PC. I admire your optimism but sometimes you just have to let go and accept that PC2 isn't what it should have been.


    I'm 100% in agreement with the op on this one because - and people have to remember this - it's the second time around now that XB1 has received the inferior version of Project Cars and whilst the more dedicated will again be more than happy to slog it out through various bouts of patches until the game reaches the point of acceptability that everyone wants it to be, it's a huge ask for silent majority to be equally as accommodating.

    Numbers means nothing to be honest, servers are 16 spots total, having a gigantic club of 1100 people doesn't help, better go focused than extremely wide. The big groups are the worst, too much going on through the feed, people using it just to share pictures or videos.
    I'm in two groups, one is 32 and is used to list people interested in multiclass racing (look through the list, check who is online and playing PC2, invite and that person will probably show up and he will be a clean racer), the other is 92 but has multiples mini series going on (a GT and a proto) as well as one time events.

    It's about matching like minded people, not spoon feeding someone spots for a race.

    LOL, show me where i said i cant race with others. I said the game has been too buggy to bother.

    Being fast is cool and all? Kind of the point of motor racing, no? I think you get the point.

    I'm absolutely losing interest, that's true, but not because of the game. In fact I can't confirm most of the issues many people are reporting. I'm losing interest because I can't see where the enjoyment is having a 5 laps race after 25 minutes qualifying session. I don't like the 'no tyre wear, no fuel depletion, no damage, no racing license, no penalty system or U-lobby approach' either. Then you open a lobby and rarely more than 4 people join. It's just ridiculous.

    If anybody useful looking for some organised racing with a group of like minded drivers pop along here to have a go in our IndyCar league:-

    I do agree with the op in that interest in the game has dropped alarmingly and it's all to do with the multitude of problems getting solid lobbies running reliably. I'm a member of a very well known sim motor racing site and pCars on the Xbox has just died a death there for the above noted reason.

    pC2 on XBOX has died on many league sites, but the strangest factor is that all the issues are variable to each user and group of users. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, with this or that limited feature/s. This current game condition makes for a situation that is less than effective for organizing leagues.

    Hopefully the reason we have not seen very many detailed responses here from SMS lately is that they are actually working on issues instead of responding here to create even more arguments.

    Hopefully the next patch will fix some (or at least one) of the more fundamental game issues.
