RANKED IS DEAD - LET US INVITE FRIENDS PLS

Recommended Posts

I hope this thread gets a little bit of attention...

 

Topic: F1 2020 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. 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. We want to play together with other people online the drive as fair as we do.

 

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 if the safety rank of the invited player don't fits the regulations of the lobby put him in visitor state.

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.

 

Kind regards,

iosis

Almost everything is more fun with friends.  And playing games is meant to be fun.  Soooo, logically, being able to invite friends to Ranked races would increase the fun, thereby making F1 2020 a better game.

Stands to reason.

Codemasters are actually trying to kill their own game. Ranked lobbies have been dead in F1 2019 and now this game all because they don’t let you invite friends

You actually can invite friends to ranked. (on xbox anyway)
As long as everyone is in a party chat
Scroll down to "invite more"
then invite party to game.
