Why are 90% or mp races spa and gt2 or gt3 cars?

    I know a couple of guys who chose the BMW GT2 for this reason, then realised they could go quicker than with the 458. But everyone knows the 458 is much quicker ;)

    The M3 GT2 had a lot of the GT2 technical rules waived to make it competetive, in the end too many. After all a saloon car hardly makes the ideal basis for a modern endurance racer...

    GT cars are easier to drive, and considering many online have trouble keeping the car on track for 10 laps straight even without any other cars around, it's the easiest way to have a race experience, go relatively quick, without fearing for trouble at each tricky corner, let alone attempt a pass.

    I run one GT3 and one Ruf server. Must say that the Ruf server is practically always empty...

    (so is the GT3 one, to be fair, but a little less so ;) - sometimes it seems we have more servers than racers on the US West Coast....)

    For me personally, my favorite form of motorsport is GT3 endurance racing, and that's my sim preference as well.

    Sorry I really havent been on top of this thread but I do have a few questions.

    Do you need to select non booking only servers? Booking servers are NEVER in booking mode and seem like they are targetted towards private races. The ones in non booking are usually GT cars. Or for god sake stop choosing the S1 Exos and go for the regular 125. Or better yet guys the GP2 car mod has soon to be updated with the 95% issue fixed. So I really hope to see more of that up there.

    I wanna see some variety out there.
  5. I wouldn't bother with booking mode servers for public online racing. Pick up and play is what we want.

    Most street car server got dumb combination of cars. Example: all bmw's only, while they won't match that good.

    If someone would do bmw e30 vs Alfa qv or lotus exige vs evora vs m3 vs 1m s3 vs ...
    Something like this is atleast competitive

    Overall most people can't drive slower cars, sadly

    Common problem in most online games, regardless of genre. People get fixated on some map, not necessarily the best one. It's just sort of mass thing, they see that Spa servers fill up, so they make a Spa server. Soon everyone is chanting "Spa" and forget all else. They often say it's the best map/track, but cannot give any arguments. It's like a popular radio song, it's usually pretty bad music, but it gets air time, so it becomes popular. I don't say Spa is a bad track. But why some people whine about AC having not enough content, when you play just 1 track? :D

    GT3 cars are easy to drive, so less hassle and collisions. Personally I would rather play on Ferrari F40 only -server. Don't see anything wrong with all playing with the same car.

    If collisions are a problem, make the races shorter. Just a few laps, then if someone spins, his gaming night is not ruined for next 1 hour.

  8. Biggest reason for so many servers at Spa is the inability for track rotation. (one of AC's biggest flaws IMO)

  9. Imho, people choose GT3/GT2 races it's because it remind them the notion of race / competition,
    instead of using s1 / s3 version of some cars that are very fun too.

    My personal preference are the e30 DTM (can't stop playing this car lol), and the Mazda 787B mod, i love all the other cars as well, no preference for tracks.

    Anyway, it's very hard to find a combo that attract us (the server is full/empty, already in race, in practice mod you already see that some are playing Mario Kart instead :rolleyes:)

    Some time you just need SOME luck lol :)

    Cheers !

    The fastest most cheapest cars to handle in today's modern racing. That's why GT1 was switched out with GT3.

    Really, that is one of AC's biggest flaws. It has nothing to do with the server admin choosing Spa over every other track, also nothing to do with the people choosing this combo over all others if it is infact most popular. You choose the track you put on your server the fact that there is no rotation doesnt mean you can only use Spa. ;)

    When I run it on my servers the driving standards are worse then any other combo so clearly its not because people are more familiar with these cars on this track. Main reason I avoid it on my servers mostly is because it brings out all the worst drivers and the servers are a complete mess needing a full time babysitter in order for anyone to be able to get in some proper racing.

  13. So you quoted my post yet gave no reason why Spa is so popular online; look, it's nice you are my biggest fan and all, but really, if you have nothing to add just don't post. In fact, according to you it shouldn't be popular at all, yet the fact remains that it is the most popular track online.

    Seeing you quoted me without reading why quote it lol. Maybe read what you quoted first and also what I quoted and my response to that or did you not even read the crap you wrote. :D
  15. I assume that you can choose any track that you want on your own server, so I don't see why lack of track rotation is the reason why so many have Spa loaded.

    location specific.
    Touring Cars would give them a massive run for their money on many servers, but no love from Kunos for Touring Cars.
    Some guy (*cough) is making a brilliant Nissan Primera BTCC car, but other than that TC is a little thin on the ground. :(

    I'd love to see more road cars on slower tracks. Isn't nice to have a million lotuses nobody uses?
  18. I would love to see more road cars on any tracks!

    Personally i find cars with sharper and stronger FFB more engaging to drive and GT cars falls into this class. Cornering at much higher speeds is a great fun too. GT cars feels easy to drive, however when you try to drive as fast as possible (relatively) they can bite hard if mistakes are made. I find GT cars well balanced with not too much power. While many supercars/hypercars feel like sprint cars because of their uber max speed and low cornering speed.

    Just join the server you like, even without drivers in it. I assure you that you will drive alone just for a few laps, and then people will come.
    I run 4 servers with different track/car combination and they're always empty, until I join one and drive.
