  1. I hope this thread gets a little bit of attention... Topic: F1 2019 don't let us invite friends to ranked lobbies anymore. Why they probably done that: To ensure, friends don't boost each other to ranks they don't deserve. To ensure, friends with D rank don't get invited to S or A lobbies. This leads to: Many players stopped playing lobbies at all. The playerbase is obviously smaller than in F1 2018. S-Lobbies are rare. To find lobbies at all, they put S-players in C/D-Lobbies nethertheless. Most time you will find no ranked lobby at all 25% lobbies are dead. plus: ranked is not a bit fairer than in F1 2018 My personal experience: I am a community leader from germany. We are 750 gamers and 70 active F1 players (in our 3 leagues) at the moment. Our community and the friends from other german communities loved F1 2018 and loved playing ranked together. We don't have a single unfair player with us. Almost everyday a few of us played ranked together and we enjoyed that a lot. It is a good distraction from league races. ...Why would you play alone when you are in teamspeak with other people. Now we as a whole community stopped playing lobbies... From what I read hear and on reddit, ranked is not a bit fairer than in F1 2018. D-ranked players still play in the same lobbies as S-ranked players. Also boosting was never a problem in F1 2018. Not like in other games like rocket league (where you still can play ranked with friends and it works great). "Just play unranked" Most players just play to compare themselves with others in competitive manner. And almost every other game let people do that with their friends. PC-Gamers trend to play games in teams und often don't care about unranked modes at all. Also unfair players are allowed to crash you in every second corner without any punishment. You can't avoid this people in unranked. Suggestion There will still be people out there that will disagree with this thread. I hope all players that usually play ranked alone won't dislike this thread straightforward. 1) There is a simple solution: Bring friend-invites back, but still don't let C/D-players join S/A-lobbies. If there is one single S player in the lobbies the invited C-player should get an error-message "You are not allowed..." 2) Or go even further and flag the lobbies with safety-tags. Every lobby has a tag with its safety rank. "This is a A-lobby" - and you should be allowed to invite just the friends with a minimum safety rank of B. Of course: In a C-Lobby you should still be allowed to invite S-ranked friends as they should be aware of possible D-ranked players in this lobby. @Faya Kind regards, iosis - Co-Leader Airborne Multigaming and leader of the Airborne Racing Leagues
  2. i give up on this game.
  3. thats all because there are so many players out there who play video games with their friends and only have fun when doing that. Most of them stopped playing ranked because they have no fun playing alone. These are your missing 120-140 players. We tried unranked in the beginning, but we had no fun there because unfair drivers dont get penalized and we couldnt fight for good ranks together like last year.
  4. Thank you for your reply, "the system currently isn't able to inspect safety ratings before the invitation is sent" Okay this is a big problem. But not impossible to fix. A simple "if"-clause after the player joins the lobby. If the player is not in safety range of "minimum safety rank" put him in status "spectator". The player gets a message "You safety rating is to low to participate in your friends lobby". He can spectate and nothing else. The same thing for skill rating or ping... I mean lobbies were so much better in F1 2018. A much bigger problem is that we can't play ranked with our friends. Siriously. Most of the people don't play alone. Yesterday we were three guys in our voicechat. Two of us had the pleasure to play in a lobby with other very good drivers with A or S safety rank. Me who is also in S and 2300 SR was not able to participate. This is just a simple example. A lot of players complain about "no player in S lobbies or 25% lobbies" This was no issue in F1 2018 because there was a lot bigger playerbase. This whole situation whould be better if you still could invite friends. Even if this means that once in the time a wild D player appears. Who cares. At least you can play most times on a good safety rank in fair lobbies with your friends.
  5. First if all, thanks for the reply. Im afraid that the answer is still missing. This other thread is about the amount of skillpoints we lose or gain in ranked. You also talk about you dont want to put a skill rating system in unranked. This is okay.. This thread is all about letting us invite friends into ranked lobbies when they are in a certain range of safety rating. I made some pretty good suggestion and also explained why unranked lobbies are no option. I see that all of my 60-80 friends from our league and friend from other leagues stopped playing online at all. This is frustrating since I love the game. Its just a shame you cant play competitive with friends like in f1 2018. Atm we practise on sunday and do leagueracing tuesdays. Thats all. I saw what happened in the last month and if you dont take this seriously the playercase will be a joke in a few months...
  6. I see. Then i hope @RedDevilKT or @Hoo will check out this topic and leave some replies..
  7. Very good communication CM...
  8. iosis

    This is getting ridiculous.

    CM wont answer... like they dont answer here... So frustrating...
  9. iosis

    Enough is enough CM

    I loved F1 2018, but i am so much disappointed by the unability from CM to answer here. It is so frustating...
  10. @Faya Are you aware of this topic? A response whould be great...
  11. iosis

    No response to problems

    jep... Ich glaube bei CM arbeitet momentan ein Mitarbeiter an den F2 2019 Autos und alle anderen sitzen an GRID.
  12. I love the f1 games, regardless of its tons of flaws. Even F1 2018 had its flaws and bugs. But we had the possibility to play together against other A/S or B-safety drivers and had so much fun. ...a reason to overlook all flaws. ...I think codemasters knows how small the playerbase is compared to F1 2018.
  13. "Just play unranked" Yesterday we were 6 people together who wanted to play lobbies together. FAIR ONLINE LOBBIES. So we started an unranked lobby.^^ Its impossible to have fun there due to the crash-kids that don't have to fear any consequences after not breaking in curves and taking others out of the race. We want to play together with other drivers on good safety ranks. Its so frustrating that we are not allowed to do that. I guess the game will be dead in 2 or 3 months. 💔
  14. I guess not a single cm employee is active in this forum. They are probably working all on GRID. I love f1 games but this is so disappointing...
  15. "There will still be people out there that will disagree with this thread. I hope all players that usually play ranked alone won't dislike this thread straightforward." You say that like it is obvious, but you don't mention a single reason. If there was only one good reason for "no way should you be able to invite friends to ranked lobbies."... You can play competitive as teams or at least together in almost EVERY OTHER Esport game (and besides in F1 2018). Why shouldnt you be able in F1 2019? That you want to play competitive shouldnt mean that you have to play alone. F1 is a game that you usually dont play alone - you play with friends. You team up to play in leagues. But most times league races are just once a week. If codemasters doesnt give a damn about these people, communities/leagues/clans, and their wish to play competitive together this game will have the lowest playerbase in the last decade.

    RANKED LOBBIES ARE DEAD

    As a community leader i can say that ranked is dead for our 60 players from germany. We all enjoyed playing ranked together in the last year. I think ranked is almost dead now. S-ranked players cant find lobbies because no one plays ranked anymore. Communities cant play competitive together. There should be a solution that makes everyone happy. Let us invite friends to lobbies, but make lobbies with different safety ranks. So lobbies are always tagged with its current safety rank. You should be able to invite S and A players to a S-Lobby but you shouldnt be able to invite a D-player. To play with the D-player you have to have to to a C or D-Lobby.

    F1 ranked

    As a community leader i can say that ranked is dead for our 60 players from germany. We all enjoyed playing ranked together in the last year. It is hilarious to say that ranked can be exploited in groups. What do you get from exploiting? A better rank? Wow... Credits? Even if this is true, who cares if someone is ranked higher. I think ranked is almost dead now. S-ranked players cant find lobbies because no one plays ranked anymore. Communities cant play competitive together. There should be a solution that makes everyone happy. Let us invite friends to lobbies, but make lobbies with different safety ranks. So lobbies are always tagged with its current safety rank.

    Big changes needed.

    14. so true. Yes it allows people to boost each other. But I am willing to accept this. I don't care if someone is on a higher Skillrank. I play in a community with 50 people and we loved to play ranked together in F1 2018. Now this gamemode is dead and unranked has a lack of competition and safe players. Its like Rocket League would fix Boosting with disallowing the ranked mode for parties. #facepalm Would be a shame if they don't fix ranked for the next 12 months....
  23. Yes!. @Faya In this condition the league-system is a good idea, but totally useless for most leagues...
