    Thank you for listen to us (multiplayer)

    Playing from the UK at roughly 23:30pm on a Friday night, only one session showed up in session search. I was really tired, so I only did four tracks before quitting, but there were 14 players in the session when I joined, and that's more players in one session than I have seen in any one session since launch (caveat: I haven't played since before the launch of the first DLC). This is what I want from Grid multiplayer. Yes, I am terrible at Grid games, and always have been, but I still want to race against a full grid of human players. This is better, and I hope it's not too late to salvage a regular playing community.

    Multiplayer Lobby System

    How about the same system as Grid Autosport? Three or four races in one discipline, then a switch of course types and cars. Giving players a choice after each race of which track would be next.

    One of my favourite things about Grid Autosport multiplayer was that there was no text chat, and you could mute all voice chat. It's a simple way to completely nullify any form of toxic behaviour from other players, other than bad driving, and that can be dealt with in other ways.

    I honestly can't understand why the decision was made to change multiplayer wholesale from Grid Autosport to Grid 19. It would be interesting to know the underlying philosophy. I recognise that's not something we're likely to get, but almost every aspect of this game feels like a step back from Autosport. ...or just give us the ability to turn off AI completely? That's what most of us want. When the only 2 human players in the game are randomly starting 4th and 12th on the grid, those 14 stupidly aggressive AI really don't make the game fun. We had races in Autosport with two people, why not in Grid 19?

    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    It's nice to see that one of the requests I put in the Grid Autosport feedback thread five whole years ago has been acted upon (points earned each race added to the timing screen). It's just a shame that so many of the features that I enjoyed in GA didn't make it into this game. Can we at least have the GA multiplayer lobby system return? Also, can we please, please at least have the option to turn off the AI in multiplayer?
  6. Playing some multiplayer tonight and experienced 2 bugs. 1 - a touring car event where I started the first two races in a Sierra Cosworth and then the third in an Alfa Romeo. 2 - on the Indy Oval track, I was forced off track by an AI after the first bend (sigh). I hit the flashback button and was sent to the back of the pack, except that the game told me that I was in first place. I was clearly at the rear of the pack (screenshot 1), and lost ground over the remaining two laps, except that when I crossed the line I had won the race. The timing screen showed that my fastest lap was 4 seconds. (screenshot 2). This was on PC, version 1.1. Everything on my PC is otherwise up to date.
  7. As per the subject: since last night, without having changed anything on my PC (drivers, etc), and before today's patch, Grid has been crashing to desktop whenever I try to enter qualifying mode in single player. I can enter races with no issue, and I can move between events without a hitch, but if I try to do a hot lap the game will crash straight to desktop and trigger the error reporting mechanism. Is anyone else having this issue?

    GRID Autosport Feedback

    Small, nitpicky things in the UI are what bother me: - Would love the ability to follow other cars during a replay. Sometimes it'd be nice to see how another driver takes a corner (even if it is just the AI); sometimes I just want to see that massive crash I caused over and over. I dont see any point in the replay system when the camera is stuck to my car. I know how badly/well I've driven. - an actual lobby, showing numbers playing and associated ping would be much better than anonymised matchmaking. I kept dropping from games yesterday, to spend ten minutes going back and forth between creating new, empty games and the main menu, before finally getting back into the  populated game I'd came from. Actually knowing there were games out there would be nice. - manual controls should be enabled when using the View Car option. - show the points gained in MP races at the end of the race - havig the option to turn the second screen into an actual timing screen, with sector and lap times would be awesome. I fail t see how anyone would ever be able to pay attention to that tiny live feed at the very edge of peripheral vision. - remove the confirmation dialog when repairing cars. I always want to repair the car; that's why I've pressed the repair button. - even better, have a 'Repair All' option - add the option to buy a car from the vehicle select screen of MP races - i know the car packs are done, but it would have been really handy to include the car class in their descriptions.  - Please expand the ingame leaderboards for Racenet challenges. If I'm pulling a ghost off the list, I dont need to be chasing the guy who's only 1 tenth faster than me -  I want to be able to pull the guy half a second, or more. Um. Yeah. Off the top of my head. Apologies if any are already mentioned, mo ti,e to read thread because lunh. Otherwise, enjoying GA more than I did G2. The good work, keep it up.
