nope...i'm the same a gogs, don't know if it's the scotsman in me...but i just won't pay for this :nope:



luckily in that pic there are 11 people online to play normally it is most likely empty and only if ya go online at 3am you will  see people and get a race. i start work at 8am  :jawdrop:

tbh...i don't really like it, just seems to easy to play, it doesn't challenge me...but it does bore me...and trying to find a race. Jesus  :rivet:

so it is being uninstalled from my system...i'm sure i will find something more challenging  :hats off:

i know others enjoy it...and thats good, it may be that a little futher down the line it will get a bit better for me and i will come back to it, but as it is now. NO!!!

Thats bollox, that pic tells nothing of the real situation. Ive been racing around the clock for several days ive seen every possible time in the day and not even once ive yet been without a race to race if i felt doing one.

Im really surprised if its easy, because i dont recall seeing your times up there  :?:
wouldnt that be the case if there was no challenge at all? Winning it easy?

EDIT:Also the cars youve driven? Legends and Solstice? Hardly the whole picture.
Its ok that you dont like it, just claiming things that are clearly not the truth is not too fair.
Try to push a 1.49 at Laguna with solstice, should be enough challenge.

Been signed up for a year for a while now :yep: Hope to learn how to be a better driver over the year thumbs up Having problems getting into the top five in anything but I love a good challenge. :yep:

Always had plenty of drivers in attendance by race time for me. Seems like some wait until just before race time to join in but that's Ok.

Some will like this concept and some won't and that's Ok with me. :salute:

my rating score or whateva you calls it is down to 2.39... i'll be the 1st driver to be disqualified at this rate and i haven't even raced yet  :nope:  rofl
I cant get to grips with the solstice at all its too real. gonna continue though on a monthly subscription. Theres tonnes of stuff i dont like and tonnes i do like. but its still in beta i believe so it can only get better.. right  :?:

I have to agree with Jarkko here, never had a race with less than 10 people, whatever the time was. I dare you to find a decent public race in GTL, Race07, rF or GTR2 at no matter what time of the day...  :think: indeed lol, you won't be that lucky as in iRacing. Instead of you saying it's a weak point, it's in fact the very opposit...

Don't get me wrong, not everything about iRacing is good imo, but the thruth has to be told.

True, i read yesterday about a saloon type of UK based car they are making for the game + so many features to be installed etc.
I believe it will develope nicely and we get more content, when the time comes that these things arent happening, i propably quit
playing it. Enjoying it enormously atm. (and like you theres plenty i dont like too.. but all good adds up even now to a very fun concept and game)

EDIT:Goddamn, just saw the time of this news.. the car is discontinued, so maybe we dont see it in the game after all.. Theyd better give us some tin tops though, the cars arent enough.. the whole tin top type of career is missing.

jesus...don't get all upset children  rofl

i call the game as i see it...and my previous post is how i see it, to be told that i am not telling the truth and not being fair, is however a bit diappointing.

i suppose this picture ain't telling the truth either eh!!!  :yep: :nope: :?: :jawdrop: lol if you guys can play at all times of day...good, i can't and this is what i see  thumbs down



if you guys are enjoying the game...thats good, i have no prob with that..i'm glad you found something new that you like, thats what we all after, however...i dont like it  :can of worms:

i did say it was easy and not challenging...i never claimed to be a speed freak or top of the rankings, which i would never be anyway...but if you are telling me that is how it feels to drive a pontiac solstice round lime rock...all i can say is JESUS :zzz:

now children people don't get all upset...this is just MY opinion, it should not stop all of you from enjoying the game.  :nope:


:sorry: but if ya don't like my opinion of the game...tough, i am entitled to it  :dunno:

The picture isn't a fair representation because the races are two hours apart.  That picture wasn't even taken an hour after the last race had ended.  So it's normal that nobody is racing in that series at the moment.  They probably jumped in another series so they could race that hour.  We are not accusing you of lying.  :)  There is a good explanation behind it, that's all.  One thing I haven't had in iRacing is trouble finding a full grid.

The screenshot is telling nothing as the race session isn't available for subscription atm you've taking the pic lol... Just checked and there were 50 guys subscribed at the Pontiac Solstice Rookie race at 16:00 GMT

I'm not upset, but like I said before the game sure has it bad points, like for example lack of content (give us European cars/tracks please). However the availibility of racers is just a good point so far as I've played to game...

  thumbs down

at the end of the day it don't work for me and it does for you...so enjoy it  :yep:

for some reason people get upset when i am critical about iRacing...please remember this is only a game(that you rent, not own) not real life and i am certainly not having a go at people that are enjoying it. it is after all only my opinion, my view, my money(that i will keep for GTR evo)  :yep:

so iRacing people enjoy your game  :salute:

Well, it clearly wasnt true. :)
Sometimes you have to wait a while for a race, but surely theres always someone to race with, so its simply completely not true that theres no one to race except on certain hours.
And as you can see i also said its ok if you dont like the game, but giving others clearly false information is something i didnt like.
Going personal on the other hand is completely different matter, calling several of the members "children", especially seeing many of them handle it very maturely.

Lack of people online is due to it being limited access invite only at the present.  Now if one were to complain about paying full subscription price to beta test their server stability and last minute bugs then I'd agree.   :can of worms:

I'll be waiting for it to be publicly released for at least 30 days before joining in.

Again you think i am a liar and now you are in the business of telling what MY experience of iRacing is??

do i come and tell you that you are not telling the truth about iRacing being so great??...no i don't that is your opinion and experience of the game...and i respect that  :salute:

the "children" comment was maybe not to your taste but it is harmless and if you take offence to it...then i am sorry. obviously you don't have the same sense of humour i have  :nope:

as critical comments concerning iRacing are not allowed welcome i will now refrain from posting about it. i really hope that you enjoy your game

lol
nothing bad in negative comments, its just that theres always someone to race, always!
Maybe i just dont understand how your experience is the way it is, maybe you have only limited your driving to one series? Nevermind, if its your experience then it is, i guess i have no say to say you are lying.

Negative comments are certainly allowed.  I'll pitch in a few.

1.  I hate the cost.
2. There is no league structure, so racing with all my SJ mates is out of the question.
3.  The forums are disorganized.
4.  I've bought the Radcial.  And I wont be able to race it against live people for at least three months.
5.  Like Duc said.  We are paying to help them test their software, and servers.

However I have never had any trouble finding people to race with.  The trouble it seems is bad timing.  Because the races are only every two hours.  On the same hand though, every two hours is pretty frequent compared to what a league can do. 

Even in Beta it's still the best driving I've felt from anything but a car.

Lets call it even...


The I-racing mist has struck!  rofl   

It's mark's opinion.. so he missed the timetable!?  doesn't explain that he doesn't "feel it" like most of you do..




and i know by posting i'm an a**hole, but then again.. i was that before I-racing as well.. so who cares. :innocent:
I'm just "loving"  :nope: this attack of anyone who is against it... i hope you guys get to read the comments in retrospect when you've sobered up a bit... almost feels like gogs and mark are beeing hung in the highest tree... i just sence an absolute addiction in this thread, just wonder when the first i-meeting will be:  Hello i'm this&that, i'm 31`and i'm addicted to i-racing ***croud cheers***


I just hate where this game is ripping ppl apart because of having an opinion... wonder when the hate-pm's  will start arriving.


Woof ~ Woof

and yes.. i've had it with this shit! oh wait.. small irritationsthread...

I respect the fact that you dont like the software, not everyone will and that is perfectly normal.  Everyone has different preferences.
   If you are a second late to join the server will definately show 0 drivers and could be what your screenshot demonstrates. I only race at 9:15 pm (LM)and 10:15 (Skippy)pm eastern and we usually have from 50 to 70 drivers registered.
Anyway,the new GTR2 expansion is coming soon and you may really like that thumbs up
