With more and more League's and Races on P.CARS 2 PS4, being disrupted or completely ruined by very High PINGS, from mainly other Continents. Is it also a good idea to use Wi-Fi connection, also for League racing.? Should we really all be Hard- wired connection? (I am) but know alot are not, that Sign-Up for P.CARS 2 League's on PS4.
Turning up for races is a complete lottery at current, and has been for a while now. Is this the way it should be ?

I am alarmed, and have been concerned for a while now. (as are Many Others) that it seems not that important to solve the Dire Situation on improving the League experience on console especially.
I know AOR want the League's to be accessible as possible. But are we thinking about Quantity , more than Quality here. I Honestly think 150ms is far too high for console, to sustain a Comfortable connection for League Racing on NON Dedicated Client Off Loading Servers. It just dont work, as its proved in the last few League's ive taken part in. Just a joke really !

What does the Community think ? Is there a sollution for more stable races on console.

I don't race enough to see these high pings since i'm only into my third season of GT3 and few one-off events. Every driver in GT3 Elite bar @Jarryd Vermeulen who lives abroad has a high ping but then again he hardly ever causes an issue, so i don't see it as a concern as of now, what does need to be looked into is inactive drivers, and those who leave lobbies during a league race, this is happening to frequently.

To be honest, while a poll can be held, i don't think issues regarding this topic happen enough for AOR to make a change, sure they can look into it and make a conclusion then but, honestly i don't think it's their top priority right now

This obsession on ping is getting crazy lads.. I have not caused a single issue with my connection and I'm from 130 to 190 max ..I hit on odd times is 220 and I have never had issues or caused problems with anyone. Ping only becomes a problem above 270.. I race against people in other leagues with pings of that and we never have had issues that cause a person to crash out because of lag... online racing will never be perfect. If you crash into me with a ping like mine then you just a shat driver and has nothing to do with my ping. This is not at you Thomas this is at fog..;)

I dont think its all about ping to be honest. Theres a reason consoles are limited to 16 drivers. Ive been in races/lobbies with huge issues but everyone has a decent connection and ive been in races/lobbies with all green and had massive issues. Seems to be when theres a lot going weather wise and/or a large circuit.

I did have more issues on my standard ps4 than i do now with the pro. I just think its a problem with project cars in general on consoles.

1 tip is to completely restart the game before joining a league race lobby though. Stopped me having random disconnects

Mate, even though your ping varies from 130-190 I'm not concerned cause i've never seen you DC, teleport or cause a crash down to the ping so you are fine (y)

From my only season here at AOR I haven’t had any issue with having a hi ping for the most part it’s fine on my end but I don’t know about others.

It just had to happen !! :ROFLMAO::cry:This is from last nights GT3 Social on PS4. Unfortunately it didnt go very well. A perfect example of how alot of races can end up like this for me. I'm Sorry if this offends ;) but you can probably see why I brought this sensitive matter to the community in the first place !

Are there any Tech Guys out there who know more about Pings and Lobby stability for League Racing. ? Please ! ;)

If some of your are wondering ! This is my connection last night .

That's not the point though, just because it's happening to you doesn't mean AOR is going to limit it, there needs to be a large majority of people saying the same thing which there isn't right now

i think there are lots of variables though it's not just about ping. Stability and packet loss are 2 things that spring to mind and that's just client side. Server side i don't know what goes on. But on console on battlefield there's 64 players and the experience is always pretty good (for me) so I think SMS has something to do with it
