    Multiplayer Racing Is ******** ?

    I just suggested on a thread on potential 1v1 ranked mode. Could be interesting!
  2. Suggestion for strictly 1v1 ranked lobby (5 laps) with an opponent at similar rank. While the idea of ranked multiplayer in F12019 is fine, in practice it's not a great experience for me. Reasons below: -Unsure why (I'm based in New Zealand?) It can be hard to find a decent sized lobby with people who stick around. -If I do get a decent sized lobby, it is a complete mix of skill levels, including grievers. -Due to grievers, it's hit and miss wanting to continue after lap 1 / turn 1 if I've been smashed off the road. (that being said, I have had some races with cars flying over me and me weaving in and around wreckages like it's something out of Mad Max, which did actually make me laugh. Kinda fun!) So. What if we had a 1v1 ranked multiplayer mode: -Some of my most enjoyable races have been where there was only 1 other person in the lobby at a similar level. -Perhaps clearer and fairer sense of progression up the ranks instead of winning because everybody else was smashed at the start. -More likely to quickly find a game. -Can be an independent ranking from normal full-grid rank. -TBF most real life battles in actual F1 tend to be between 2 cars across multiple laps. So it might almost feel more legit? Just a thought!
  3. In order to get better aquatinted with the feel of the multiplayer car, I went to time trial to do some rivals and was disappointed to find I could only pick official team cars. It's a bit lame when you look at the leader board and all you see is Mercedes Mercedes Mercedes. So feature request please to have option to use multiplayer car category in time trial, and possibly even a dedicated leaderboard?
  4. I'm really loving Dirt atm and slowly getting better. Seems like I consistently place around low-mid tier 2 in the events so still a rookie. The problem though is that all the stats and times throughout the game are relative to the best/leading driver so constantly seeing "+30s" is getting a bit old. It would be nice to have more stats that are relative to where are sit on the board. Few ideas below: -Option to change in-race segment times to be relative to the person just ahead of me on the leaderboard. -If only a one stage race, perhaps option to set segment times to a percentage position on the leaderboard. ie 'top 20 %' time -When seeing leader board position at the end of a race or event, show my position as a top percentage, rather than just a position number. It can be hard to judge if I'm going up or down the board in a multi stage event as more people enter the position numbers change. - up and down green/red arrows similar to F1 final positions vs starting grid. -With all the above, a way to add a players ghost at a certain % level to a stage or event would be nice too so I have someone to race. Aka Rivals from Forza etc. And this is obviously out of scope for this entry of Dirt, but would be great to add a leaguing system similar to F12019 (or even rocket league lol) so there is a better sense of progression and something to fight for, rather than purely setting your best times per track.
