  2. If I had to blame someone I would say the McLaren as he's responsible to make a clean overtake, Mercedes didn't do anything unexpectedly.
    At first I thought you were bumped in the back, but that car was too far off.

    You "helped him back on his feet" and stayed behind. I would ignore it if I were the Mercedes.

    PS: I got lucky, clicked on the Youtube slider and was immediately at the right moment (5:29)

    thats lucky for sure :)

    "Mercedes didn't do anything unexpectedly." he did :) two wrong things. but i understand your point of view.

    i wouldnt do nothing of what he did. but i understand why looks to be on me :)
  4. I had 2 races on Monday, my first races in 3-4 weeks time.
    Both extremely clean 20' races on the Nürburgring.

    - On my first race I was attacking and finished 2nd, 0,5sec behind the leader.
    - On my 2nd race I was defending 2nd place for 15min and kept it 'till the end.
    Big thanks to both competitors for my 40min of joy.

    So I have nothing to add here... :)

    There is nothing to debate here. This is on a 80+ SA public server. Since I can't do anything, I post it here for your enjoyment. I wish something like that would cause the person to immediately lose all his SA.

    Right, that's revenge. Would like to watch what caused it. That could be something whats really fitting in thread topic.

    Yep. After I started from the front rows and got eliminated at turn 1 for the Nth race in a row, spent 2 laps in the pits and then got stuck behind this guy who was 2+ seconds slower but would still block me. I am not that fast either so this guy was super slow and didn't really know the track at some turns. I got impatient and made a risky move. TBH he went so wide and slow that I actually thought he was letting me through. We bumped doors and spinned. If that was real life, maybe I could get some penalty for the incident but he would certainly not drive again and probably be arrested for attempted murder :).

    BTW are there any rules for super slow cars blocking traffic in real life? Like blue flag but for being slow not being lapped.

    No, you have to find a way to overtake them in a safe manner.
    Weaving and blocking is not allowed, but since we don't have stewards in normal ACC online races you need to be creative and make a surpise move, take him by his blindside, catch him off guard or make him run into a mistake, like him breaking too late and get the switchback.

    To trigger somone, u probably didnt had the right decisions on your overtake. If you were 2 seconds faster, u could have find a way very easly to past him by without causing any issues whatsoever.
    Try to slow down your race mode atitude. Instead of looking into the reaction of the other guy after a overagressive move from you, try to think about how could u have done it better without causing a crash.

    instead of trying to put your car on the side of the other driver in the braking zone or half way trhough a corner, find a way to put the car on his side at the exit of the turn and before half way a straight.

    Make games to yourself ( like i can only pass people at exit of corners and if im not at least half car at his side at the middle of the next straigth i back down and try again on the next turn), and play with others minds, without ever put them at risk or hiting them, helps a lot when u learn to brake and match the speed of the other guy in front, without pushing to hard to be on his tail.

    Slow cars get a white flag.
    But what is the rule for blue flag, you´ve mentioned?
    They don´t have to brake, get out of the way or whatever, just not allowed to defend!
    Yor are too slow to overtake, you are too slow then, they are even allowed to lap back.

    This shouldnt be case for even have questions about ( i think).

    #29 fault 100%.

    As soon as the replay starts and i see his bad exit i thought he was going to intervene in the guys behind line.
    For me this is easy, if i do a mistake at a corner exit ( even more in a big straithg after), and i have a car behind i have two options, or do i move away to the other side and let him by liftting right away and slot behind and avoid losing time in defending something that as no defence, or i keep my line and let him go around me, and when he is at my side i lift and let him go.

    But its not always like that, we need to learn to understand where is the right time to defend or not.. the video presented is not a defend kind of situation for sure, but rather a let the guy behind go and take advantage of his draft to keep up and get him after if im faster.

    I literally dont even understand why goes on other people mind when they mess up a corner and try to block or defend from the people behind.

    Not being able to defend would be enough. But in this case I was the one lapping back so I guess he got no flag?
    BTW I am not saying I didn't mess up. Even with him blocking it would have been easy, I honestly thought he decided to let me through.
    But his response is totally unacceptable.
