I know it’s a practice race but this is awful. I get blocked 2/3 of my runs in qualifying, ruining my start position. Nearly get killed on formation and start my race to approaching some sort of demolition derby in the first two corners. I know it’s a difficult track but this was pathetic, I expect better as we are practicing for a league race. Thanks two those who ruined my race and my time I gave up this evening

At least the F1 ESports series is on now so there's that to watch.
Sorry for once again rage quitting my hosted race lol. These social races really aggravate me at times. May be better if someone else hosts from now

That was quite bad, got rammed in the back at the start pushing me to last then when the safety car came out I got spun whilst slowing down. Hopefully next time it will be better

@ClassicDelta I want to apologise for what I believe was being the straw that broke the camel's back. 3 wide going into the last section was never going to work and I foolishly sandwiched myself between you and another car.

It was a weird race for sure. At least I could practice my VSC and SC restarts :/

Did anyone experience lag? I did with a few ppl, for example @miniminiman09. Your car was jumping around on the straights when we were really close to eachother. Agree it was a very messy race...

On Friday can people actually take the race seriously because I had multiple people try wipe me out to take my position and at the start I had someone T bone me just because they wanted to be annoying. I know I've already said about this it's just I wanted a nice race and everyone just slammed into me as no damage meant nothing bad happened to them and I just got my race ruined. Sorry for the rant I just thought the mid and back runners took nothing seriously.

It's Baku. It's a narrow street circuit. It happens. Especially when you fill a lobby with people of different skill levels and varying pace. Some of the people complaining here also held me up or tripped me up in quali and the race, so it is what it is. Everyone should obviously try their best to drive their race and not hinder anyone else but this is a place where something is always likely to happen.

@ClassicDelta If you really don't want to host future races I don't mind stepping in next week but after that I'm likely to miss a few Wednesdays myself.

I'm going to turn damage on reduced or maybe even full for future socials to try and deter people from colliding with each other. I thought it being off would be beneficial for people for if they spin but it appears it's also having a negative effect by having people taking risks they normally wouldn't, as they won't lose a wing by making contact.

Also @Hydranockz it's okay it wasn't your fault really I was already frustrated with myself for making the mistakes that led to me falling down rapidly.

@XPOWER 89 the lag may have been to do with me streaming so if that was a problem for everyone let me know so I don't do it in future when hosting.

On a side note: a bit more courtesy from everyone wouldn't go amiss in quali, it's happened in most the social races this season. I understand wanting to have a gap infront of you but you have an entire out lap to make sure you have that gap, don't leave it to the last 2 corners to suddenly slow down and create the gap you need as people behind will catch you suddenly and have their laps ruined

P.s il keep hosting for now @maxen I just need to learn to stop getting mad about a race that has no bearing on anything lol
