Well I couldn´t join the game as i got the error message failed to join game. The lobby was remade with the exact same host after i said I couldn´t join but it still didn´t work. I asked if the game could be remade with a different host but nobody was really paying attention as there was all sorts of shenanigans going on. Just want to point out Xaidenb is a shit organiser and doesn´t really care. I put a few hours of practice in so kinda blows what went on there and people didnt really try to help.

Edit: Just like to point out that I tried to search for other games online and was able to join just fine.

Well thank you very much sjoe much appreciated also this isn’t my league to organise  :D furthermore I’m sorry you couldn’t join but I didn’t hear you say you had any problems. 
As for my race was ruined by poor incidents and lost my front wing twice from careless incidents happening in front of me oh well 
(Sjoe if you have a problem with me please don’t do it on the forum as it just turns the mood sour please pm me instead)

That's what I tried pointing out last week. The league is dying, no enthusiasm, no leadership, etc. We were only 11 people in this race when we have got 20 drivers and 3 reserves signed up.. ridiculous. I mean it's not that I won't race anymore but it gets to a point where it's boring because of we're so few people..

I agree that we need to get more people racing each week as it does get boring and about leadership I can try better sorry that sjoe feels that way about me but I do have another league to run also

Don't have anything against you but in this case I kinda got fucked by people not paying attention/caring what's happening and just talking loudly over eachother while I clearly had a problem that I tried to get fixed

I named you because it clearly states you as organiser here and therefore I expected at least some form of help and not "I wanna watch apprentice pls get on with it." If you're an organiser for another league then I'm sorry, my bad.

Well I didn’t hear anything from you so i am sorry For that we were already running 10 minutes late and we did need to get on with it. I will try harder to help with this league but I only have so much time I can devote to league racing

Ok guys stop the discussion RIGHT HERE!

First, never be disrespectful toward a staff member or another member here. First offense it's a warning and second offense it's a ban.

This game works with invite. I'm pretty sure Mu11man and xaiden got all the members who have signed up on their steam friend list but maybe not everyone. We do not have time to figure it out just a few minutes before a race. We need to start the race at the time planned for it because maybe there is some members who have commitment early in the morning and they want to get in bed asap. This is why we are not really changing host. Also, if you were able to join the races before and not for this one, than it's not the host, it game issue, your pc issue or your internet connection issue.

Regarding the attendance, it's something we noticed every seasons, and not only at PRL, other racing leagues noticed it as well. We always start a season with full grid and after 5-6, a few of them disappear. Why? I don't have an answer about that and I don't think it's because of PRL. I really think we are one of the best organised league in the world and I don't think it's because of our management. I rather think that the drivers who leave or not as passionate as the driver who stay. I'm pretty sure there are some drivers who when they noticed they can't win in the league, they leave, or if they have had 2 bad races at the beginning of the season, they are giving up. Those drivers are NOT passionated!

From here guys, please just stay and have fun every Wednesday! It's just a game ;)

I agree with everything you wrote there. And I've only been league racing properly last season and now this one. So I can't really say much but I noticed that last season we almost always had someone or some people to fill in for the guys that couldn't make it. I think we were at least 15 people racing last year, were as many of them were full lobbies. Now I don't know if it was only for that season or if it was just like that for my first season. I just find it pretty boring as a midfield runner to race alone for pretty much an hour straight. Question is, how would we get more members? Because I'm down for advertising this league a bit more if that's needed.

I have also a topic in the Codemasters forum, f1 leagues section. You can just post periodically into it to have it remain on top of the list!

I'd like to back sjoelbakkie here and also add that hosting wasn't done by an organizer either, so such an argument isn't really valid.



Also, the obvious reason for decrease in players is the change in rules from previous season to the new season. That was a choice we agreed upon but it still resulted in a decrease in players. (ie. I'm also not inferring we should change it back or anything, just stating the obvious)
