    Same here, on PC with a T500RS clicking on the the right shift paddle shows every lobby details, it's useful.

    No, just highlight the race you are "thinking" of joining and then use the right paddle.

    You mean while you're still just in the lobby browser, where all the available servers are shown? Had no idea about this, thanks, will give it a try!

    Thanks for the input everyone. Makes a bit more sense now. I do tend to have lobbies without any driving aids so I guess that chases away the "arcade crowd" as someone earlier put it.

    I guess PC is different but on the XBox you can just hit the RB button ( right paddle on a wheel ) as racesafegrandad said and see all the race details for every race in the main online lobby so that was part of my confusion since all the race details and driving aids are available before actually joining. Shouldn't be any surprises. Maybe most players don't do that.

    Anyway, thanks for the replys. Happy racing,

    About weird lobbies, I am regularly surprised with a certain kind of ones.
    You join and see 2 or 3 *players* who have the same nicknames or so (just the numbers change)
    Not a word, not a line in chat, they are just here waiting for what ? no idea.
    Seems like they never start the race.
    These guys (robots ?) just waste everybody’s time and pollute the main lobby.
    There should be a timeout for non active lobbies.

    On Xbox, the only time I have seen the same name but for numbers is when a couple of people are guests on the same device as someone with an account.But that can't work for PC2, as no splitscreen

    I think those people belong to a league/group, and they have the group name in there. I've seen some RWB <something> drivers lately.
