*What is it? Excessive stuttering during a race, when there are like 10 or more players in the race. It happened in all the races after the latest big ranking update. I've not noticed any stuttering previous to that update. It doesn't happen during qualifying or practice. *How do I know it's unrelated to the PC hardware?! My FPS is at a constant 90+fps on a triple monitors setup. I have monitoring apps and they show a constant 90+fps and nothing abnormal from, say an offline AI race. CPU and GPU usages, temps, frame times etc... all is normal. I run also simhub and crewchief. Also as mentioned above, that issue never happened before the latest big update. Also, my friend runs a single monitor with a beefier PC and has the same exact stutters while having maybe 120+ constant FPS. He doesn't use any external apps like simhub or crewchief. *What do I think it is? I think it's something related to ping, latency or location. Both I and my friend live within minutes of each other and we face the same exact excessive, border unplayable stutter, at the same during the same lobby/race, while we have totally different rigs, PCs, performance, wheel, hardware, external apps etc... We live in the middle east, Lebanon specifically. This shouldn't be a problem since we're not far away from Europe and we play all sorts of sims and games on European servers without any issues with a ping of less than 90ms. *What I'm not sure about? Isn't this game also P2P like PC2?! Well, I and my friend had that same excessive stutter while I was once hosting a lobby! This makes me a bit lost on the whole matter... My ping bar was full green but maybe the server is actually far away?! I really dunno... Yesterday, out of curiosity, I jumped into Project cars 2 and a 20 cars lobby race. The experience was silk smooth. The issue described above will, unfortunately, mean that I and my friend will no longer be able to enjoy this game online. Yesterday I got pole with GT3s on Kyalami to later spin on the 2nd lap when the game stuttered heavily when i was mid corner... Devs or anyone that can help we would be thankful. Thank you.
