    I personally think that if the only way to join online races is the "popularity contest" of server rooms, then the only choices are dry races on Monza and that's bad (looking at you Project Cars 2).

    I would prefer the game to propose tracks, weather conditions, and day/night cycles in a random manner hourly (which is in my opinion the most genius game design choice in Gran Turismo Sport); that way we would fully use all the features the game has to offer.

    Can't it be a combination of things? Like, let people be able to host servers and have a couple of official servers that cycle thru the Blancpain season with random weather with a 45-60 minute race, and then have weekly events that will have the actual race length?
    Or am I too optimistic xD

    A week to week championship series, with longer and shorter special events, where ratings matter, with the possibility of creating unnofficial events that can rank on ratings without affecting them.

    Of course we want all of them, the question is what you think you would use the most.

    Well, that's the good thing about my 'system' :D you can always join a non-official server with a shorter race length.

    Edit: It's a bit like how it is now in AC. You have hosted servers, then you have Sim Racing Systems that has various races every hour. Those hourly races would then be official servers with a length of 45-60 minutes per race and say 10-15 minutes of qualifying.
    Then there's also weekly events or per 2 weeks that will have the actual race length of the Blancpain races, so also the endurance races.

    It needs to be both server based for small quick races, but official organised Blancpain endurance events as well like iRacing/GTSport.

    It's got to be a system something like GT Sport. I hate the physics of GTS but the hourly races is a brilliant idea. ACC is perfect for this sort of thing because the content is limited, therefore everyone has to be racing GT3 anyway so the hourly races really focus the community and get lots of people of the same skill level together.

    On top of these hourly races there should be special events of realistic or endurance length which take place less frequently to ensure a good amount of people in the races.

    Of course there should be the option to host races outside of this structure but the "meat" of multiplayer should be the timed races.

    I hope especially for 1 server per track just for practice. choose car/team/decal and hop on the server to drive and test with others.

    -The most important think for me and my friends, "Weekly events based" ! Because one race by week is enough to pratice. With solid Ranking System of course.
    It's also important to have in advance a clear planning of the "Weekly events based" to prepare them (Blancpain calendar ?).

    -"Host servers" is important for the community, leagues... to enrich and expand the game (a bit of freedom).

    -"Hourly / daily events based", I don't play at GT Sport... You can see these events in advance ?
    If is not, is a non sens for me. It's like find a race ("Server browser based", Car/Track combo) and jump to it, without the knowlegde, the training (=disconnect, car accident, off track etc..).


    And for me, we need a pratice mode with opponents:

    Best way is a mix, so All of Them
     
  16. I'm hoping for official servers with full real world race durations. I never got the appeal of 20min races.

    What's the point of this poll? I would think the Devs have already decided how things are going to work online. Why move away from AC's online model?

    Because EA isn't a monarchy (it's good to listen feebacks and ideas for ACC or AC2...), and because AC's online model is poor (without community). A lot of think could be done.
    Th game isn't released yet. And after the release, There is "update/patch".

    Simple.

    Yes, lets just ignore that Minolin is working on it, and that there just couldn't be more info in his posts, and oh yes - information in the roadmap ;)

    And devs are obviously open for good suggestions which fits in their vision.

    The informations in the roadmap, are not really accurate.
    And some people do not know who Minolin is (sorry Minolin, it's possible) , and what he's working on.

    Minolin is a dev from Kunos ? He works on multiplayer ? I don't know myself.. So
