    This is a title of a video i just saw today:

    Actually there is a lot of criticism in regard to iRacing these days and a lot of pro drivers are streaming ACC.
    I was also wondering if this could be a chance for ACC to take over.
    I am not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised if ACC has the most realistic physics on the market right now.
    With the proper multiplayer structure it could really bring people in.

    Of course it would require a massive work on the multiplayer side.
    As we all know the team is now focused on the console development, so I guess this is probably not happening.
    Money wins in the end.

    What do you think?

    I think competition is always good. But Iracing is already there for a long time. Hope ACC will be used in a lot of events.

    Not chance unless they are able to provide the infrastructure for multiplayer.

    Its also way too limited in tracks/classes.

    Even if they had the $$$ to build it it would take years.

    Also I doubt its in trouble - quite the opposite - its grown the user base massively in the last couple of months.

    ACC isn’t in the same league as iRacing i.e. in competition structure or multi-class.
  6. I don't think iR is in any major trouble, you can find videos of drivers and other people criticizing every sim including ACC. I prefer ACC over iR but I've had to defend ACC over the years from criticism as well. It happens. Until ACC has even remotely comparable multiplayer I don't think it's in the conversation and even then with such a focused amount of content I don't think it will ever happen. ACC may be the best simulation of GT3 racing but even then it is a niche within the niche market of sim racing.

    ACC will never compare to iRacing as a service because iRacing is a subscrition based product while ACC isn't: so as a service ACC will never match iRacing unless their service model changes.

    As a GT3 simracing game purely (disregarding the service aspect or other classes that ACC does not have), i think ACC is already on par or superior to iRacing and who ever says the contraty is just a denier or an iRacing fanboi (which i was for until a couple of months ago when i started playing this beautiful game).

  8. I agree with the guy in the video.
    I remember some "TV" button in the menu at very low beginning.
    Also scheduled race following sro in place of current special events. Agree

    I am not sure if GT3 is a niche. I think it is one of the most popular series in iR as well as in other sims.
    We also have GT4 comming, which is additional series + multi class possibility.
    Some people prefer a focus on single series (including myself) - better less with higher quality and detail than more with questionable simulation aspect.

    I actually wouldn't mind paying a subscription here.
    Obviously they have to maintain the servers and keep it updated etc, they cant work for free.
    They could introduce subscription, it would be still much cheaper than iR because you dont have to buy every car and track. Value for money would be way greater in ACC.

    And ofc the current mutltiplayer could remain free for those who are not interested.
    Its a win-win. And win for Kunos as they would earn much more with such pricing :p
