    It's particularly nice seeing half the lobbies with single player private rooms so people can tune their MP car. 

    MP, in general, needs a Sim full damage 50% cockpit only lobby. Perhaps make the first three laps ghosted just to phase out the impatient dbags that want to wreck people.

    The whole race could be ghosted, theyd still find a way to ruin it 😂

    I wouldn't say it will encourage poor etiquette @BluntRS. It's just an exploit that's within the code and an exploit that will be used. Just as the ballast and using lower down force or none at all was an exploit that wasn't foreseen. I'm not sure of what lap times of the AI compared to mine. Though I did notice when I took when I disabled the UI the ERS still have enough energy to use to finish lap 5 on it own. I'm going to test if the AI does the same in other areas if the UI is used whilst racing.      

    Starts would be interesting,

    Formula 2 is a balanced field @F3Tz. That includes the amount of fuel on board at the start of practice, qualifying and the race. You don't get the option to change the fuel load or mix as you do in Formula 1. 

    Formula 2 drivers have intelligent people who calculate the fuel load,

    We dont,

    A 3.3km circuit needs 4.7ltr of fuel for one lap, wilst a 7km circuit only needs 1.2ltr, :classic_rolleyes:

    Monaco     3.3km FP Short 9.4ltr FP Medium 9.4ltr Quali 1 Shot 4.7ltr Quali Full 6.1ltr
    Belgium     7.0km FP Short 4.9ltr FP Medium 4.9ltr Quali 1 Shot 1.2ltr Quali Full 3.2ltr


    Just glad it was in devolvement for 2 years, or who knows what issues we'd have 🤣

  4. Its just like thier encouraging poor etiquette on purpose,

    More people that see this though, more people are gonna use it,

    What was your lap times compared to AI in control is it slower / faster,

    Mybe not this year or next, but sooner or later players are gonna say enough is enough, and find another game to play.


    Loop hole you could always just post the title of the video, that way your not actually posting any content.

    I'm sure they already know and encourage it! 

    Blame is the wrong word. However if you only got the game for the purpose of clean and fair online racing I'd love to see what on this earth made you believe for one minute that was going to happen? As a keen racer you must surely be aware that online racing in random lobbies is literally a meme for carnage? Even iracing has some idiots and they subscribe monthly to drive like that. No casual player plays an annual game for more than a few months at most and all their bad stats yet wiped out when a new game comes out. The least Codies could do is let you keep a persistent safety and skill record between games so you don't have to be dropped into a random pubg shoot fest every time a new game drops. 

    Expecting regular clean racing EVER from an F1 game is like expecting to drive at 100 down the freeway and never get a speeding ticket. Carnage is an occupational hazard. ONLY ONLY ONLY ONLY (enough?) NOT buying the latest game until the last one is fixed could ever change this scenario. Except...most people will always buy it anyway to be cool and have the latest shiny thing. 

    I'm not criticizing YOU I'm saying you have unrealistic expectations from a PEGI 3 mass market AAA game. 

    Complaining here is like writing an email to Microsoft from Outlook saying Windows sucks. They don't care. Buying a Mac however does get them to sit up and take notice. Lively forums mean people still care about the game and will still buy it anyway. Dead empty forums with no new posts means people have left for another franchise. 

    I am still here myself to keep reminding Codies I won't ever buy 2019 and to help people if I can with career or tech problems. There's a good game in there somewhere for some people but it sure as hell is not or won't ever be in the online portion. 

    How about flooding forums with actual online mp videos posted on YouTube? Sadly I reckon a lot of idiots see videos of carnage and actually buy the game cos they think that would be fun to join in. Nobody ever buys iracing for a giggle and a laugh. 25 laps round sebring everyone behaving themselves? Nah that looks boring let's get forza or F1 instead! 

    PS please don't shoot the messenger! 


    Excepting is the problem with todays society,

    Off to the pharmacy to get some Vaseline NOT!

    Exactly, unless you run your own leagues. Anyone with access to the internet and YouTube cannot possibly have ever searched for 'F1 game online multi-player' and NOT found an abundance of bad driver videos. For them to have seen those and then magically believe  'oh this years game will be totally different ' is beyond belief. 

    Makes me wonder why I made this thread asking for black flags :classic_rolleyes:

    SO by your logic the racers on this forum are to blame for buying the game, when we should just abounded it and watch Codemasters slowly go out of business, cause trolls like to ruin online racing for some reason.

    Game is PEGI 3. Everyone going online should be aware that the game literally allows you to race against 2 year olds with full assists obviously. You can't go naming and shaming minors as that's basically online child abuse sadly. You also can't black flag kids for the same reasons or else their parents will go back to the game store and say we paid 60 bucks for this and our little Dennis (the....) can't go online anymore. 

    The F1 series of games is always, without exception, going to allow anyone of any age to 'drive' however they want no matter how ill mannered without ever getting 'punished' for it. 

    I didn't make the video, nor did I have the intention of naming or shaming anybody, I just posted a online video, which everyone has access too, from a another site on the world wide web people have access to, In high sight I should of just put the YouTube title then no issue, but doesnt alter the fact the video is still online avaible for all to see,

    Codemasters advertise this game as follows, The Most Authentic F1 Simulation, nothing indicates to me but be aware your racing against ( What you wrote ) its just excuses, 

    Of course they can black flag them from the session its a rule in F1, Grojean got removed for his radio no working, Do you even F1 ?,

    Your pretty much saying, unless you wanna play destruction derby, dont by this game if you want to race online.

    Hi all,

    Please note I've removed some names and videos as they were being used to name and shame, which is against the forum rules. 


    @Faya That wasnt my intention to name and shame, its not my video, I just wanted to highlight the issue,

    But am sorry I didn't fully think it through before posting,

    So here is the lap 🙂 Can't wait Blunt to come here and tell how much minimap helped on time trial lap 😂


    Absolutly stella lap and insane time in my opinion, so nice to see more cockpit views on YouTube,

    First Like on YouTube, BluntRS dont hate, BluntRS congratulates, 😎


    Ok since you asked, FYI am not writing this by choice, no hate here, but they asked.

    Its @BluntRS FYI, mini circuit in TT are like pre advice info etc, like the arrows in Dirt that not only tell you how far they are away , but also what type of corner your approaching,  giving more time to prepare, speed / gear etc, very helpful in braking that mm later due to the GPS location on track,  also cause you got a visual of angles from above, which you dont normally have, which is clearly shown in the video by your last lap being your fastest,


    Lap delta again gives you info on excalty how much time however small your gaining / losing on each corner, by braking just that eye blink later, getting on the power just a eye blink early, very helpful wilst trying to find any time left on the table, which is shown to be a advantage in the video by your last lap being the fastest,

    The lobbies are pretty much Forza for open wheel.  Probably won't change. 😕

    I hear ya, but I live in hope, that these type threads ( not just mine ) but online problems are seen and heard, as I would like to venture online meet new players,

    Or else what is the point of a super licence ( 12points should be a race ban, I dont think thier is points ) or online, scrap the lot, put all the effort into offline.

    lol The same Alonso that in 08 only won 2 races and one was due to his teammate intentionally causing a wreck to bring out the safety car? 

    It's been a while, but I recall Lewis winning the championship that year, too. 

    Lewis is in a fast car because he is and has been the fastest driver by a pretty wide margin.  

    I love Alonso and the fact that he is a throwback. He reminds me more of Andretti, who may be the actual GOAT driver. LeMans, Indy, F1 etc.

    Nico Rosberg was the answer 😁

    Taking nothing away from Lewis, but lets get real, that Merc is untouchable in a lot of current F1 drivers hands, 2021 fingers crossed things will change, but as fans yes its great to see our fav driver win, ultimately we want great racing, which at the moment with the leader lapping up to P6 or more, is not racing.

    I use to be a fan, but 2016 just went off him. which I think after his actions, I think a lot of others did.

  12. @Codemaster this isnt my video also I dont race online, due to the issues in the video, F1 2019 I was hoping to go back online hence searching F1 videos, I understand you cant stop some players doing what they want, but ultimately you can add features to help prevent / clean up multiplayer, or its slowly imo going to turn into a ghost town, like other games have.

    I think it was F1 2010 or 11 mybe I dont remeber, but I was in a online race, and half the grid was black flagged, now it seems its turned into a free for all, anything goes from what I see on YouTube,

    Yes yes people will say join a league, but online ranked / unranked public players who are able and want to race online, should be able to join a session, without fear of being treated like this, how does the game not remove these players who are ruining the race after X amount of attacks ?,


    Everyone should be able to race how this wish, but with the view in the video used, due to the hud, positions of the mirrors, the mirrors are useless, players are to restricted with the view of thier surroundings imo,

    virtual wing mirrors or a spotter is needed to help players, who choose this view, I guess proximinty arrows where introduced to help, and am sure not all people who have incidents do it purpose, some must be done to visibility issues, havent tested proxi arrows myself but something clearly isnt working as intended.


    4:18 How do they do that ?

    It's annoying to me that I actually agree with points made by everyone here, despite the parties involved getting annoyed with each other. The more options available, the more people will be happy. Wanting to become elite is a good thing as it is self improvement. Bragging about being elite is not a good thing. Be proud but not loud is my motto. An assist user calling a non assist user an elitist per se is just as annoying as a non assist user looking down their nose at an assist user like they were some kind of cheat by default. Actual cheats are scum wherever they are. Assists against other assists races is not cheating. Assist against non assist in same lobby is effectively dev sanctioned cheating. Imagine an fps mp game where different players could choose to start with double health, extra armor or extra speed! That's what mixed lobbies actually is and I believe it is very unfair. It would be much fairer to have official ranked lobbies split up into say 3 choices. Beginner, Normal and Pro (or they could just match up with the driver assist level chosen on assist screen) . The assist levels would be locked for each tier, the higher the tier the more exp points available. 

    Look forward to your thread, more support the better, better chance of it happening.

    Point is learn to deal without them and use what's on your steering wheel. After all according to you or AScott or whoever you want to go by, there's no need for a virtual mirror because there's a way to see your mirrors - shortcut button or extreme camera setting. 

    You quote me, then ask AScott a question :classic_wacko:
