Got disconnected and couldn't connect back I tried everything. Definitely due to using mobile data but I don't have any option as I'm not home and wanted to race this week, I hope I can race tomorrow. I know I did a whole race in donington back in season 9 with mobile data and it worked.

What is your ping like to a UK server on your mobile data?

The thing is that @frabiond had the same issue. Told him to restart his PS4 and router and I know that he restarted PS4. Then he could join without any problems.

What about though the PS4? Obviously can't choose a server but it should give you an idea of how well it is connected.

@YabbaTheHutt about last nights lobby. Did we have accelerated tyre wear? I've watched the videos of a few in the fast lobby last night and my tyre wear was at least double, if not more than what they had?

No, same settings as always. I know that wet weather is a bit problematic on PCars 2 with tyre wear. That's why I asked you how your tyre wear was with the early pit stop. My wear was horrible up to the time I pitted...

Yeah all the practice I've done my tyres have been fine, that's why I did my early stop. Last night was the first time I've had issues with the wear and when I saw the other lobby's tyres were a lot better than mine were I started to wonder.

Well... When I practise on my own, tyre wear is enormous (10 laps = 40% wear). On Monday we had a practise lobby with @Slicker as host. After 20 minutes of racing my wear was only 8% but yesterday it was around 16-18% after the same time. There is a difference in the weather itself in the game, 3 different lobbies will give you slightly different weather but the wear seems too much anyway.

I'm looking forward to it. :)
Did you get a friend request from me yesterday? It seems that PSN was a bit strange yesterday so maybe my request didn't go through.

Only thing I could think of was the amount in the lobby. All my testing has been with a full grid of cars and I've easily made the full race with no tyre issues at all.

Now I don't know how to tackle strategy tonight. Leaves me once again thinking why bother with practice when it's going to be massively different come race day.

Yes, 3 races in a row now where I have a very different car in the real lobby compared with practise...

I had the same problems with tires. Practiced Monday with 2 drivers in an online lobby and could easily do with an one stopper. Yesterday again with 2 drivers I could only do 10 laps with the tires and my laptimes where horrible :(

Only option looks like to have multiple strategys saved and choose while racing. Which isn't ideal in a wet race.
