How to know if you're good or not? (Joining a league)

    Hi. I bought my G29 about 12 months ago. I have 170 hours on steam with ACC and really enjoying it. Only thing is the 20 min races are getting a bit 'samey' so to speak. So I am thinking of trying to join some sort of league. I watch a lot of ACC on youtube and 1 hour 2 hour races in different weather with pit stops looks fun!

    But when I do watch them they are sooooooo much quicker than me. I get that they would be but am I even quick enough to join a lower tier league?. I have 170 hours on ACC and its my main racing game. A lot of that time will be watching replays etc but I do tend to have 2 or 3 races each night if I can. I have a hanfull of podiums. On SPA my best lap is a 2.19 (once, average is 2.20) and everyone else seems to be doing 2.16 2.17 2.18. And this is the track I play on most. Had one win and a couple of 2nd and 3rd's. But is that good enough to join a proper league as all these youtubers seem to have so much more fun.

    Monza 1.49
    Imola 1.435

    These are the only 3 tracks I tend to race in

    I have attached my rating as I'm not sure if that will give an indication to where I am at. My pace is really low as you can see but I have been trying to get my SA up so been staying out of trouble.

    Thanks in advance. Sorry if this seems a stupid post I'm just looking for some advice. I don't want to sign up for a league/competitive races and they be like ' What you doing here BOT you are 4 seconds off the pace.

    Thanks again acc rating 15.05.png

    Most leagues I've found are very welcoming to folks of all skill levels. Your rating is fine, and shows you are well accomplished in driving in ACC. Incidents will always happen, even amongst the top guys.

    In short, there is always someone faster than you, and you will probably be faster when you learn from them. Jump in and give it a go!

    Thanks for the great reply. I will give it a go. Will have a good Google to try and find some leagues.

    Take Care.

    There's over 500 drivers in that league, spread out over 10 tiers. Whatever your skill level is, you will most likely always have someone to race with.
    The season did already start tho, I believe they're at the 3rd round next week.

    Usually you will get to race, there's always people who can't make it.

    I second this. Judging on your laptimes you should absolutely fine in their AM split, it's a really good organisation and they offer really enjoyable races. Give it a try.
    I would also suggest to try their "looking for a team" section if you are interested in sharing the car with someone, I found some amazing people from all around the globe this way (try to find someone that has your same pace to keep it enjoyable).

    Thanks for taking me back to the dawn of Internet sim racing when I read the lap times people were posting in GP2 and went "Whaaaat??? :eek:"

    Leagues I have raced in won't give a toss how slow you are, just so long as you race clean :cool:

    To not post too much off-topic I'll also answer here instead of in the driving technique thread ;)
    The league I race in is from an Italian group, Adrenalina Racing Project (link to discord; link to league info).

    As most members of the group are from Italy almost all of the conversations over there are in Italian, but everyone is very open to people not speaking Italian and for the events (league, 4fun races) everything important will also be communicated in English.

    The league races and some of the 4fun races have live race control and at least the league races are also streamed via twitch (commentary in Italian only).

    Those times arent bad at all nothing to complain about that would put you mid field or front of field in most rookie leagues - and mid field in some mid tier leagues.. if you can hold them consistently

    The other side with leagues is people can help you with setups, tweaks etc.. just jump in.. The rookie league running at the moment with 45 drivers have 2 second slower laptimes than you listed on average..

    League is Aussie Run, however they do splits in North America and EU timezones aswell.

    Thanks for the reply. Really encouraging what you said. Yeah I am quite consistent I will get 2.20 on most laps on spa for example unless in a battle and I play it safe. With setups something I need to look at. I just use aggressive setup and lower the 2 down to 1 and adjust fuel.
    I also just use the Aston Martin and the same 3 tracks so I think I might need to mix it up a bit with other tracks. I tried Barcalona last night and after some practice was doing 1.45 which seemed to be ok. Will check out the link now. Thanks again

    One important thing in most leagues is to actually show up once you are signed up. ;)
