[ ALL PLATFORMS ] - Desync and General Quality of Life in Multiplayer Discussion Thread

hi everyone, developers and gamers alike, i promise to play on ps4.
the game on online mode, especially in private lobbies, is unplayable.
it is very difficult to LET many players enter the lobby as the message of the room is no longer available, this happens both in the lobby screen and once the session has begun.
stability problems arise as during a race some players disappear from the ranking of one player but remain in that of another. this also happens for his lap times which are not recorded in the lobby but by the single player.
numerous problems with flags. as the
yellow flags in different sectors. in case of exit of the safety car it happened at the restart to have yellow flags without anyone having gone off the track or slowed down.
in short, for a where the on-line experience is fundamental ... it becomes a tragedy to organize some competitions between friends. hope you can solve.
Greetings

We run a league in Sweden on PS, all of course on latest update but we have had severe desync issues all 4 races this season.

Suddenly the timing list totally crashes and tell incorrect times and place of each rider.

Sometimes you get illegal overtakes of cars that even are close to you.

Suddenly the SC stands somewhere around the track but still no yellow flag and we can pass him 2-3 times then he decides to start.

We have tried restart the first race we had but same problem again.

When doing a 3rd re race a couple of days later we managed to get through.

Any thoughts where we can start troubleshoot?

We know people from other leagues and they don’t have the same issues.

This game is bad.

Try to tell your league racers:

1. No Alt-Tab (for pc, if there is something similar on PS don't do it)

2. No leaving lobby (in quali)

3. Host with really good pc/internet with open internet (not much security)

4. Monaco is bugged don't race there (pit lane)

5. Clicking ready on every loading thing

So i guess guys, we are back in this thread again. Game is again broken....

Yeah feels bad to be back I guess....

To sum it up for right now:

 

When you join a online multiplayers session the following happens:

The lobby in itself is already lagging, as in you have to wait to actually jump in the menu or when you try to select a car/driver seat.

Then the loading screen kinda bugs out too with a bunch of people not even getting to load but instead getting the message for not responding in time with the countdown timer.

However if you get to load into the actual game as in qualy or race you get greeted by other players who are completly out of sync with you.

They will crash you out without their own cars even moving an inch, they get taken out themselves by cars you cant even see or some cars will simply get stuck to others and will get dragged along which in my opinion looks funny but is really terrible gameplay-wise.

I have seen it in 4 lobbys so far since I patched this game today and I dont think its just a one-time thing.

Best solution for now would probably a rollback on that cosmetics patch, because right now they cant even enjoy that in online races.

Thats just my statement to this so yeah...

If you have anything to add please go ahead.

Ok I dont care if the next game has no other features as long as you guys have multiplayer working properly for once. You guys are selling a game that hosts the official f1 esports series and has a huge league racing community, yet for far too much of this game cycle multiplayer has been in a completely unplayable state. 

Adding this years issues to 2020's issues with the connection overlay blocking peoples view in lobbies on launch, it seems like you guys have 0 interest in developing a functioning multiplayer from launch and havent for multiple game cycles. Really frustrating, hoping for better next year.
