Why start .... it is unclear ....

First of all, sorry for the start that went, greatly distracted from the game.
 
What a disrespect for the organizers ... A lot of people have registered, but in the end no one comes .... why do it, this is swinishness.

Why did they start to leave the race? When I get penalties or damages to the car, I always try to get to the finish line and fight for points. What kind of circus are the guys?

Because in cyber world you can be anything you want and you can behave how you want it. If something does not suit you and you leave there are no consequence for he/she/it leaving. Many people online is bunch of pussyes trying to be something they are not. I race mountain bikes in real life, and I know what it is to chase those points. If I fall of bike on race it is same thing like spining in PC2, if I get tire puncture, it is same as damage in PC2 and many people do not realise that it is normal. We are not professionals, we are amateurs.

I understand everything, but this is not done in qualitative championships.
But these exits from the game because of damage car - it's just a weakness and bad upbringing. It's my personal opinion.

From the fact that this is how they come out, others suffer. For example, today was a waste of two hours of time, plus the time spent on adjusting the machine for the track.

Organizers are trying to make a good championship, but many people do not understand this and only think about themselves.

Sorry if someone has offended by my words.

Don't worry about the bump Glenn. I'm sorry for not calling my moves, I was too busy focusing on trying to make them I forgot you needed them called out.

It's really irritating we get so few people, seems like people only ever take it way too seriously or just don't care at all; really ruins it for eveyone who just wants to turn up and have a good time every week. Not to mention some people do put in an hour or 2's worth of practice (sometimes more) sorting their setups and lines and so on, and then either the game or someone else to ruin it for them. (Not directing that at anyone who's still here, just as a comment on things that have happened over the season)

I also don't understand why people sign up and only bother turning up once. I remember the first league race I did was with PRL back on PCARS 1 (Formula B on Dubai to be exact). I spent about 5 hours practicing that week and perfected everything I could and was rewarded with a 2nd place in my first race and, while we only had a small grid, had loads of awesome battles all throughout the race. Ever since then I haven't done nearly as much practice as that but I was always do my best to come on time and as prepared as I can be to every race I have commited to, and if can't make it I always try and let the organisers know because when I signed up I made the commitment to do all that. Not only that but I always try and plan my social life around PRL (and I understand that is difficult for many people, but how hard is it to post a tiny a message on the forums or send a quick message to one of the organisers to let them know?). It leaves me shocked that so many people can commit to the full season and turn up to the preseason race, never to be seen or heard from again.

Unfortunately I don't have the knowledge to be able to give a full solution to this problem but trying something like TC might help. On PCARS 1 we also had an International Series rather than a European one, maybe that might boost numbers? Plus it's not like connection issues can get much worse than they are already! Also we've seen the Euro PC F1 league doing well recently and one of the differecnces (other than the game of course) is the broadcast Glenn does (as rubbish as it might be ;)). Maybe the publicity of something like that might help? I dunno, just a couple of thoughts from someone who doesn't want this league to die!

That will surely help. For example, I found about PRL on Project cars forum few months ago when I wanted to join league and basicaly I was just starting my whole story of trying in sim racing and making my youtube channel that I want to grow. So I learned a bit for few months and have some tricks in my sleeve for next year as of the publicity of championship and basicaly gathering "healthy" people. It is not enough just to stream, or just to make a video, you MUST learn your audience, you must offer them something that will benefit for both sides.

So TC is great thing, it is rare, but there should be some announcement of some kind. For example someone will not think it is a big deal to race in those, but we are going to make it a big deal and stuffs like that.

Just sharing my experience I got in last few months of researching audience and youtube.  ;)
