Gonna go with the staged invites to get the strongest connections in first. Please join when your invite is sent, not when you feel like it.

Please join Discord (even with no mic) unless your connection is so marginal turning it off helps. Remember to mute the race lobby.

Consider the impact of livestreaming on your connection bandwidth. Record your race instead and test for framedrops online BEFORE the league race.

Also please do not retire the car on track during qualifying, retire in the garage.

Collisions on the Formation Lap will be penalised, unless it is a game glitch or genuine accident.

During the race, retirement is discouraged as we will ask you to remain in the lobby until the end of the race, this helps with stability like 'no rejoins'.

Rejoins are not allowed so backup invites will not be sent. (If AI is misbehaving extremely, then we may if possible re-invite you to retire the car).

Recap on the rules, please read them.

@Hinyaldee is your COD, he is in control of the lobby, respect his instructions and advice.

This may feel like a set of instructions, but all of them are to try to give us the best possible online experience. Have fun!

Perhaps we should leave a little bit of time on the grid for those who want to make adjustments to their strategy and fuel levels. That was a headache in the previous seasons i was in.

Of course, it'll happen. I'm the one who's supposed to press "Start Race" and nobody else. But that will be reminded over Discord before the race, which is also another reason why we need you all to be at least able to hear on Discord ;)

I just set a 1:21:3 but ran out of ERS coming to the final straight lol
I did a 21.8 but lost 3 tenths in the quick chicane and also ran out of ERS, sounds like it will be close on Sunday :)

@Hinyaldee @Jay during my practice sessions it seems like when formation lap is enabled yellow flags do not work on track or in the hud. thought you guys might want to know.
Green flag throughout the session is also a possibility with Formation Lap, however the league rule is currently that the Formation Lap is On. Until there is a decision otherwise, we go with the rule.

Without the formation lap, it is just impossibl to startvon the hardest tyre for people who doesn't want to use the softest compound first. You're driving on ice for at least two laps, meaning you have to be slow and careful and you will lose more than one position, which makes it unfair for those that prefer the hard tyre/soft tyre strategy

Thanks to crappy Sunday train timetables I won't be able to make it back in time. There is a very slight chance I may be able to get in between the start of qualy and the race, but I doubt it.

I believe so.

Will this be a problem every week or just this week?
