Multiplayer League Hoppers
May 8 through May 15
Use this thread to share tips, car suggestions, and experiences.
League leaderboards are ordered by points which accumulate from all your played sessions during the week.
Points per race = finish position inverted + bonus for finishing higher than players with a higher skill rating. See the League Info thread or FAQ for explanation about skill rating and Division placement. Credit payouts for each division are awarded based on the leaderboard after the League has reached its end date.
See ManteoMax.com or KudosPrime.com or this thread for a list of cars by Division. Unless otherwise specified, Leagues use Damage=Cosmetic, Collisions=On, Tuning=Allowed, Upgrades=Allowed to the maximum of the specific class restriction. Cars must be currently configured to meet the lobby restriction to appear as available options in the Rent/Buy/My Cars lists, so the list of Rental cars may be partial or empty.
The Global Touring Car league is very competitive in Elite. Really enjoyed the good close racing today. The Volvo’s, and BMW seem to be the go to cars. Although on certain tracks the Audi and Merc have done well. The Avensis and Honda have struggled so far from what I have seen. For some reason one of the Toyota’s takes damage when using manual with clutch.
Yeah, I don’t run clutch either. 90% on my friends list do and were telling me about the damage. Only happens on one of the Toyota’s. None of the other touring cars are affected. Just thought it was weird.
Also, noticed a lot of rain races and I believe the only tire option is race slicks. If this trend continues I might have to tune a few for the wet. I see there are a couple new walls like at Sonoma and I think Indy. Pretty cool spray effects around the cars in the wet.
I found that it is slower using the clutch cos it took me 5 minutes to get the thing of the line from stalling, after a couple of races where I probably ruined the race for the guy directly behind me I gave in and switched to manual.
After the switch I found this league really good, I have not driven the GTC’s to much but they are good fun and when you get three or four racers nose to tail lap after lap, its edge of the seat stuff although I did get hit so hard at one point the car flipped over and I nearly fell off the sofa.
Loving the X class. Thank you for providing the Ferrari F1 car in the last pack, much easier to driver than the Lotus E23 and competitive with it. Great fun. Corner cutters are getting punished for their stupidity in this class. I don’t even worry about them since they will mess up somewhere because of it. I love watching them crash into a walls. I’m glad I have something positive to say for once here.
Would just like to thank a much maligned t10 team for the Xclass ghost league,much appreciated,even though releasing that ferrari641as dlc is a bit of a sly move,i think personally all vip member’s should have been gifted it,i guess you have to make a buck,anyway thank’s again…
Yeah, I’m going to say something positive too. I couldn’t find any private lobbies on the go last night so I had a go in the WTCC league, and it was great fun. There weren’t many people in the lobby but the racing was so close it didn’t matter.
Most of all the drivers are using the E23 Lotus or the #1 Ferrari in ghost league. Those cars have no lights and the selection of some tracks are in the night. I am not sure if I am the only one but night racing on Nurburg GP is really hard to see anything in the dark. I honestly do not know how three drivers completed the race because it was pretty difficult to see anything. Is this fixable?
They turn on the braking line and follow it. I noticed the same thing. I’m a little perplexed why they won’t take one of the cars with headlights that you can make X. They don’t perform as well as the Ferrari and Lotus but you can see where you are going. It’s the drivers not the game that are choosing to do this. Even with the line on it is hard to see where the grass is. I might just spectate those few tracks in the future if they don’t pick the proper cars. It’s only Sebring, Nurburgring GP and Bugatti I believe. Daytona and Yas are well lit and you can see fine without headlights.
All you have to do is set the racing line to full and your set to go. Some people actually have 1st place times at nurburg gp night with out any lights in R class. Also some other night tracks as well.
“although I did get hit so hard at one point the car flipped over and I nearly fell off the sofa.”
Lol lmao! .
I know what you mean, one time round Road atlanta I was going down the start finish straight and without warning, BAM I went literally flying into the tires, never saw it coming damn near had a heart attack!! After viewing the replay turns out the guy that did it, did it because he thought me getting spun by another guy and coming back onto the track out of control was intentional, there was nothing I could have done to avoid him. What a tool!!
