    All the PC online lobbys are the same.

    It's so hard to find a lobby that isn't GT3, LMP1 or GTE and on a track other than all the popular ones like Monza. Especially Monza.

    I like a bit of variation and I'm only really interested in MP, so it's pretty much GT3 + Monza most of the time.

    Bit of a shame really, the way the MP side of PC2 works is a big let down, no official dedicated servers and those run by the brave through Steam are empty.
    The P2P allows players with massive ping difference in the same lobby and finding a setup that suites is not easy.

    I managed to join a server running group 5 on Sunday but after the first race everybody left, I can only assume that being unfamiliar with cars which are not the easiest to handle people worried about their skill rating.
    I then joined a lobby that was running a R3.5 but that just crashed back to the lobby at race start, ten mins of practice, 20 mins of qualifying all for nothing.

    PC2 is rich in flavour but for on-line racing I go elsewhere.

    I find there’s a few guys/gals who create interesting races. Especially TC and TC1. They are generally really close. I raced last night at Brands Hatch, Laguna and Hockenheim. There were some epic close, clean races. I’m not very good in TC (actually I’m not very good in any class) but I think it makes for fantastic racing.
    I would like to see a bit more vintage stuff for me. Maybe some open wheel vintage F1 races. Only thing is it can be really tricky wheel to wheel, with the odds on having a crash very high.
    Other than that, close racing in VR is something I thought I’d never experience to this degree. It is utterly engaging and thrilling. I absolutely love it!

    Well done and thank you SMS...

    You do realise, you can join the empty dedicated servers and change cars / tracks etc, since you become the host (as such), although not everything admittedly.
    If its online and not password protected, then its there to be used IMO and can provide a better environment overall than P2P.

    PC has it better than console.



    If you want some variety,some up with some good combinations,safety rating off,short races, and people will join.

    Lol clio's are even worse than GT3. I don't like to drive or race FWD. Tried to convert, but I really don't want to...

    I've just spent a couple hours trying to set up VGTB and Road D (None GT3) lobbies, nobody was joining, or they were coming and going. 10mins quali, 4 lap race around SPA. Tried to get them going maybe 7 or 8 times...

    I really don't understand how there are so many fantastic cars to drive and hardly anybody wants to use them. The old/classic stuff makes for some superb racing and fun. There's been a few times I've searched and seen 100% GT3/GTE.
