    Are you wondering about reckless driving in PS4 lobbys?

    Not really. The most useful tools for hosting a lobby are still missing or bugged:

    1. No lobby naming
    2. Useless voice chat (since PCars1)
    3. No inline text-chat

    Since SMS doesn't care about this, no one has any chance to manage a lobby proper. And thats the main reason why PCars2 on PS4 has not the amount of users it coul'd have. Denying that fact is ok for fanboys, for SMS it's just loose money.

    I'd like the server browser to show all the private rooms so we'd know how busy the platform is. Most of my racing is in private rooms.

    Issue for me in lobbies since the game's release has been muting other peoples' mics. I find other players' mics often too loud, to the point where you can't hear your own engine revs, tyres locking etc, which affects your ability to drive at your best. There is no "mute all" option, which means you have to individually mute each player's mic, and then mute any players that join subsequently, which is not ideal if you are driving. Sometimes the mute option doesn't work at all. I don't race with a mic, so it would be nice to have a "mute all" option so you can choose whether hear other players talking or not.

    There is a workaround though, if you don't wish to hear any gamechat simply create a party for yourself.

    Host should have the option to disable all mics. Standard feature in GT, but of course there, they don't neglect the ability to text.

    Texting is a FAR more efficient way to communicate in a room full of people without the self control to ONLY talk when they absolutely have to.

    There are times when SMS trying to 'be different' has failed to understand that the system already in place in most other games is there because it works...

    Trouble is, there is no text alternative to mics. So, you either keep them on, listen to some kid's chewing gum or some bloke's emphysema all through the race drowning out the car's sounds, or you lose any ability for the host or players to communicate at all...

    I would like a quick 'Mute all' and a 'Mute all but host' button, and room host have the option to mandate it for the room.

    We need text boxes, and we need them BADLY

    The problem is, PC rooms have text. GTS rooms have text (so it's not a PS4 limitation). PC2 PS4 rooms don't have text. Why?

    Voice chat improved immensely since patch 1.4, its as clear as any other game out there now and even rivals being in a party chat for sound clarity.

    Why can't it be that we don't hear anyone unless we put our headsets on as well, really don't see why we have to hear them through the TV speakers without having to mute everyone individually
