    Exclamation Warning from Dirty Drivers PC

    Hello,

    Just going to leave it here because the game itself has no punishing system.
    I post a screenshot to this topic and underlined 3 people who are Dirty Driving only.

    They call themselves "Team purple or smth" and each race they purposely start on he last row and then start taking out drivers ahead.
    They leave themselves on track untill leaders start to lap them and then once again crash people out.
    You can normally see these type of players in the GTE or GT3 class.

    Is there really no punishment for these type of players?

    Unfortunately not. Since SMS removed the host kick feature, those guys are on their road to glory, ruining as many races as they can and bragging about it. It is sad and only defense is trying to vote to kick them, which rarely works, but still those guys have found a way to get back in the lobby unfortunately.

    Haven't seen a single Vote Kick work as im assuming for it to work all have to vote?
    With the collision "bug/feature" when 1 of those drivers crash into you in T1, they even deduct your points...
    After that race with those 3 drivers i went from S1900ish to S1743 :/ race was a 6 lap race of 24h lemans track so its a pretty long track aswell wiht the huge long straight lines and after those straights you just get "rear ended" by 1 of those.

    I hope PC3 will have some kind of system against it.
    The only cure against them is probably if you "set limit like requirement U1600 then non of them can join" but its so easy to come from U1400 to U1600 just win couple of races and then go on the suicide road again

    I very rarely play online, but I'm surprised that so few seem to be using the Safety Ranking (the letter, not the numbers). Set it to minimum "E" for example, that should prevent many rammers, methinks.

    i have seen kicks before the race, only for being slow with clicking "ready". i was even kicked once because people did not want to wait 30 seconds while I was fine-tuning my setup. No wonder that people end up with not enough fuel or wrong tires if there is such pushing for quick start.
    I have never figured out how many have to kick for this to work. Hopefully not all, becasue for that to work some of them would have to kick their buddies....

    Now, vote-kick would require all (or most) people to know their nicks and know how they behave. How many racers actually read the forum, and closely enough to see the information and memorize the nicks. Or someone would have to explain in the chat and people believe him. Not gonna work.

    No. Better set limit to like C100 or D100. I guess they are not over F safety rating.

    EDIT: Maskmagogg just said it too.

    Vote kick does work, but it requires 51% off the people to vote to kick, and for some reason most people do not vote, maybe they just do not know how to do it, or they just do not care. In 2-3 cases with those people in the lobby we did manage to kick them, but it required suggesting multiple times in the chat box to others to kick them etc. Unfortunately it does not help that there's no way to vote while driving, even when in the lobby the method to vote is not straightforward and even worse there are so many problems with the chat messages not appearing/disappearing, so it becomes so difficult arranging a kick vote campaign

    Unfortunately this is no solution either, they have found a way to join also lobbies that have a license requirement much higher than theirs. Since they work as a team, often they have someone who maintains a good license rating and this guy invites the crashers in the lobby, this always works. I think they have also found some other loop whole though, because even after kicked, they sometimes can join back right away.

    I hope that SMS team know this and will prevent exploits like these/

    Interestingly, i just was in a race with a rammer idiot (a single one) who overshot T2(3) in Red Bull Ring, I got alongside of him and he pushed me off the track right away. The weir part was that he did that in quali. What's the purpose other than pure malice? Couldn't be anger from screwing up the last shot at good time, as there was still like 10 minutes left.

    Anyway, I vented in the chat, something along the lines "Watch for [nickname], he's a rammer" and probably called him an unfriendly name.Then I went on with my quali

    But soon I saw other people kicking him, and soon he was gone.

    So it can work sometimes.

    I've seen the guy at the top of the list in action. If I get into a room and see him on the list. I tell everyone who he is and leave. (Only happened once that I can think of)

    Safety rating would work against this guy though.

    In AC, you can simply press one single key while driving to respond to a kick vote. In CS:GO you can do it by simply pressing F1. It's quite easy to implement this so it is actually useful.
