Just took a spill down my stairs and rolled my ankle and popped my arm out of the socket. Call my backup

Enjoy COTA. Hopefully see you in Mexico.

Well that was... interesting? Definitely not enjoyable though. Massive de-sync on the first couple laps, I would have just suspected my connection but it appeared to be happening for everybody. Spun the car coming out of the hairpin before the back straight so that put me way back. Then contact where @davrath appeared to just turn into me. Which I'm 100% suspecting lag on one or both of our parts. After that a really quiet race. Some guys in front of me had some wing damage towards the end of the race and went off track so I just kept driving and that was good enough for P7.

Only 1 lap in quali so happy with 4th. Race was eventful, good to know I can battle @Meks Unseen but then made the same mistake that @Joseph Baigent did at turn 1... back end of the race was boring and then got wing damage so just tried to hold on till the end.

Overall, if i was offered 5th before the race i'd have taken that as i dont like this track.

Also, massive de-syncs throughout, first time its been that bad this season, new people or just unlucky?

@o Coxon o I did womder what happened to you.

Welllllll I'm getting more and more fed up with this game each race.
Quali was good, barely managed to squeeze out another pole:D

Than halfway lap 1, screen froze sending me from the front al the way to the back.
Than tried to battle forward only to have more screen freezing, lagging cars everywhere, alien indicators and you name it. Lost my wing twice, though got the fastest race lap
All and all I'll be happy when this game/season is over.

@K04 Yeah it was looking it was gonna be a good battle & then de-sync out of nowhere.

Also lost a good chunk of my front wing on the first lap because of it.

& Quali penetrated me up the backside when on my 2nd run i did a corner cut on the outlap not paying attention which then invalidated my next 2 laps :bored:

Think those clips sum it up. We have good racing and battles in this league but the game really ruined that for a lot of people this race. Hopefully the servers perform better for Mexico.

is it just me or did the lag in this game from very acceptable to lousy to horrible over the course of the season (and updates)?

Well I kinda have a idea what happened, every player asked codies to just use servers on their own, instead op peer to peer. So at codemasters they did rent some servers, but I 100% sure they rented servers from EA, hence all the lag:unsure:

I'm not sure as I've missed 4 of the last 5 races but I don't recall anything near as bad as what happened this past weekend. Not sure if it was just a combination of bad events or what the deal was.

Hi guys

Sorry didn't post my race thoughts last week been so busy with work.

I enjoyed that one but could see the
Beginning so clearly with everyone. I backed off in the end after nearly taking jaketsujouu on lap 1 and 2.

I have to apologise to him as when I did go for an overtake into a tight left handed I went wide and hit him.

Please accept my apologies I won't blame the lag it was me just not being careful enough.

Apart from that incident I ran a clean race and actually kept up with a few of you better than other races! That would have been the lag!

Anyways looking forward to tonight. Not much practice yet but will see what happens.
