    I think a driver should be allowed to join a server and go to the track immediately anytime. If he enters the track during a race, he should be shown as a ghost to other drivers - this would avoid trolls to join races just to mess it. Many people, when notice they need to wait 5, 6 minutes to go to the track, just disconnect. That's a fact.

    I may just have low standards, but I often find races when Im looking, between 5PM (9:00 PM GMT) and 10PM Eastern Standard Time. Usually you'll get at least 5-10 people in an F1 race, sometimes as many as 15-20. Only issue I have is everyone quits the race as soon as they realize they wont win. You'll start a race with 15 people, and only 4 finish. Is that normal?

    I think it has become a general problem. People want instant gratification, here and now. If they don't get it, they quit instead of putting some effort in it.........and be patient ;)

    funny , because in some TT board there are more than 270 Lap times, people prefer to play against the clock, without too much compromise.

    There is no commitment to the race because there is no penalty for leaving early.

    People will stay once Reiza implements a feature where if you leave the race early you break your fingers.

    Or a bit less drastic :D if leaving would have some influence on your rating;)

    Maybe leaving a race before the end would cancel the driver's AMS2 copy on Steam. He would need to buy the game again. Then I think nobody would leave a race before the end, even if it is a 50 laps race. Just kidding.

    Anyway, Bruno has a good idea. A rating hit would be enough to avoid so many premature quits.

    I know what can help. If someone quits prematurely if will delete AMS 2 and install pCars 3 or 2 Fast 2 Furious-game. :rolleyes: And you will be force 3 hours to play until you can play AMS 2 again.

    Good idea too. When the driver click to quit, the game will warn him: "Are you sure you want to quit? You will get a 3 hours PC3 playing penalty".

    Some good discussion here. I personally really like the idea of the scheduled Reiza races.
    Worth a plug for www.simracingsystem.com
    Two series on at the moment: Formula Trainer and Ginetta GT4.
    Next Formula Trainer race is just over 25 hours from now, plenty of time to sign up.
    SRS has it's own safety/incident rating system, which many here ask for.

    Today, there were actually several lobbies, definitely more than I've seen before. With more people noticing that the game works pretty smoothly now, I think we have a good chance that online's going to be more populated.

    Whats worse than no joiners is when steam just disconnects all 6 players as has just happened again during race


    Edit
    After steam reset.
    Nice recovery and win Marious:)

    i wish to have a "spectate only" option.
    enhanced, e.g. 256 slots or full broadcast
    open for public also on password protected sessions.
    full access, also when in the 3 minutes timeframe
    maybe with a better UI ( broadcaster look )

    and a

    dedicated race director mode
    for DS and P2P sessions
    kick & ban feature
    better chat UI
    big font full screen race director messages

    I signed up with simracingsystem.com. I would like to compete in the Formulia Trainer races, but it's way too late for me. 1:30 AM on a wednesday. So, now I'm 'forced' to race the Ginetta.
    An other race for the Formula Trainer (Advanced) would be nice.
