Hey guys, after hearing a lot of people reporting lag then I just want to get a general consensus of how much lag there actually was throughout the lobby to see if we need to change back to @AOR Charlie as host.

Please leave below if you experienced lag, and as much detail as possible please! (lap, who was involved, footage if you have it)

Cheers guys!

I only experienced @AOR Charlie lagging back and forward (sliding all over the shop) for a few laps, before and after that it was fine.

My internet if pretty solid, but i live in the Netherlands so that could be an issue if i am hosting.
I could try and host a social race to see if the connection is good for everyone?

Guys, you can all improve the lag by playing on a wired connection with Homeplugs.

Some of you may have them already if you have a STB from your ISP. Add a single adapter (buy them in pairs) or just buy two to start off. Don't use the encryption as it slows them down. These are BT branded but it doesn't matter (AV600)



AV200/AV500/AV600 are all compatible and you can get ones with mains pass through, straight into the wall, away from chargers and surge strips. Simples.

Unfortuately I don’t have the money, nor the intent to buy that

I had a bit. Mostly on the straight although I think it was me as it happened to everyone simultaneously. Then overtaking giant, although it seemed a bigger deal on his screen than mine

Tbf it was more desync than lag, you disappeared for a bit, I presume behind me and suddenly reappeared in front round the hairpin, but also at that point the party chat went weird too so I'm presuming it was a one off sort of thing

That connection is still very solid to a London server, you can try a social race if you want but I’m fine for you to try hosting next week if you are up to it as it’s still better connection than mine. Thoughts @Taz?

Fine by me although are you sure your up and down aren’t the other way around?
