    Online Confusion???

    Hi everyone, I donít post much but this has been on my mind for a while now. I am a player in the United States and, for a long time now, whenever Iím online every single other player is European. This is not an issue as far as racing with them, but on the other hand, I wouldíve thought that Iíd be put in servers with people in the same region as me. Either that or thereís just nobody else playing in the U.S., but I donít think thatís it. Iím just curious to find out why this is the case for me. Thanks everyone and happy racing.

    Yeah I often feel the same way myself. I would have thought there were much more online players and lobbies in the USA.

    I think that it helps the smaller player base mixing us all up and also clearly stating the person's latency/ping quality. Don't forget that this is all P2P, not server based on the consoles. I see red pings and I sometimes will jump to a different lobby.

    I usually play early mornings on weekends, so I figured it was mostly because it's the afternoon in Europe, so more people are playing.

    The seemingly random flag doesn't help much. I'm pretty sure everyone playing on Sunday wasn't from Spain, but everyone had a Spanish flag. I know I'm not from Spain.

    Motorsports in general seem to be more popular in Europe. If you ask an American to name 3 current F1 drivers, I'd guess maybe 30% could do it. Maybe 10% would be able to name a rally driver, past or present.
