Ok. I know I'm just one voice of many. But I think the rating system just got worse. I got a passing penalty on a yellow flag because one car was off the track. And another spinning out still sideways. But still on the track. Also it still has the other crap things in there. Like a 10 sec penalty because I was rammed from behind in to another racer. It's all become a trap of damned if you do damned if you dont. I used to be DR A and SR S. A couple Bad race comes along pinged around like a pin ball in the high speed ring from a mixture of early breaking ahead and late backing behind. You got no chance in that situation. Of which a lot of rule abiding drivers get caught in. So what options are left available to such drivers?. I'll tell you. Lag behind the rest of the pack...which slows your lap times which in turn lowers your DR. And because of to chaotic races I'm now down to SR B and DR C. Trapped with very bad sports people that like to swerve in front of you on a straight because they screwed up. And nudgers who intentionally nudge just as you enter a corner, so that you over shoot and leave the track. Both cost SR. While the offender just gets half of that. I don't have an idea for a fix. How ever. I think no clipping with other cars should be implemented until the system gets better or that new better system is devised. I love the game. Especially in rooms with fair minded racers. I accept accidents happen. You can tell the difference. I'm guilty of a few myself. Like not realising a driver on my inside on a turn. Though i learned to pay attention after a couple of incidents. But that's just it, i cared to learn and adapt.
I'm surprised to find this but I totally agree with everything apart from 1 thing but I'll get to that soon 😉
As for penalty the worst now is def yellow flag car off track or almost a d receiving seconds for doing nothing yet avoiding an accident if it comes down to it! Still getting penalty for going off track even though you've lost places and loads of time.......here have another 5 seconds lol
Then as you said the rammers n side snipers who always seem to get away with it..
I've always said from the start that it feels they just need to hit the reverse switch!
That 1 more thing ........
Not noticing people on your inside, don't you use radar and the red markers on your hud as that's why they are there and I swear so many people don't use them then think it's the guy on inside fault when in actual fact the turned in on him because he wasn't aware.....not having a dig but it annoys me again when others don't use stuff like that to have a better race.
Rant over! Good bye
On the inside track. I agree. Like I said. I learned to take notice instead of that racing tunnel vision. However.....sometimes that guy on the inside is going too fast. Yeah he hits the inside of the apex first. But there is no ways he's staying on the track on the exit and he/she knows this. And knowingly uses your car as a brake. Like I said there are accidents. For those I bark at the tv. But no more than that.@pocketpotter81
Kaz made a speech at a recent gaming convention.... Not entirely sure how it will pan out if it's introduced.
He was mentioning something to do with racing against similar Age Groups that run from your PSN credentials.
So, kiddies can play with other kiddies and other ages likewise. The trouble with this is..... the many kiddies that have false DOB credentials, you will basically still be racing with kiddies .... Go figure LOL
Just today someone spins out in front of me, I get hit, barely keep it on track and I get a 6sec penalty. Since the "new and improved" penalty system I went from AS to BC in two races. So i gave up trying to qualify 1st, don't qualify at all and always gain 4-5 positions during a race, so I'm not atleast loosing more DR when I farm my SR back. Excuse my English, hope it makes sense :-P
Same here. I went from B/S to B/C in one day of races at Monza. Even trying to "hide" at the back didn't seem to work.
