Skill ranking issues.

Recommended Posts

Being as I don't really have time to league race I enjoy the quick races on multiplayer and had grinded a fair bit to get to 1,991 skill rank and exited to get to the 2,000 mark (assuming that gives you gold). I come home to win the next race when the lobby shuts down and completely eradicates any progression of that race, having sweated hard to make sure I get the win I wasn't best pleased. So I thought no big deal just perform well in the next race. Shortly after the lobby glitches and doesn't start so im forced to leave. The game then decides to take me back down to 1,905 as if I had left mid game, in doing so effectively setting me back to where I was 2hrs of constant racing before. Honestly making me not want to play this again for a while. 

Im I the only one who thinks the penalty to your skill rank for not finishing a race is WAY too harsh especially seeing how buggy the game is at the moment and how long it takes you to increase it. It took me around 8-9 races (winning most of them) To get from 1,900 to 1,991 just for a bug to strip it all away again. 

Is this happening to anyone else ?

I think it should remember any penalties in that said race and if you were clean have no penalty for quitting, sometimes conn breaks or family issues arise. But if anyone tries to wipe their bad performance by quitting on a race they should get a big penalty for it. For players who only got a couple of penalties just a small penalty for quitting. This would be fair.
Clean racers shouldn't be penalised, but they shouldn't get full race points either, you could easily try to claim 1st place points by quitting just before a faster player catches you up. But again, no penalty for a clean racer getting booted/quitting.

I think that would be a fair system. If you leave a race with no penalties, you still get a SMALL skill rank penalty (other wise people would just leave if they have a bad race with no penalties) You also don't get anything from the race i.e stats. But you also aren't robbed an outrageous amount of time and skill points. Because lets face it we all have to get off quickly for one reason or another sometimes. 

If you leave a game with penalties (I think corner cutting warnings would be harsh also) you get a BIG skill and safety rank penalty. Stopping people from being jerks and leaving to not get punished.
