I just don't like GTS's online mode. I'll play Call of Duty and Destiny all day long without a second thought, but I prefer to race by myself against AI. I'm weird like that.
I tried Sport mode once when I got a free 2 week trial to PS Plus and it wasn't for me. I did race some lobby races and had a better time but I like to play by myself against AI. Not really an intimidation thing just never liked playing games online. Also it bugs me you can't talk to other players in the lobby or sport mode with the microphone. I already maxed out the 20,000,000 racing AI so if PD keeps adding things to GT League, it'll be just fine with me.
YES! I Just got the game and I just asked if only Gr.4 sedans can race in Custom Race. I'm having good fun with the AI. I did set a qualifying lap in Sport, but I then have to wait 30 minutes. I'll probably get there when I know the tracks better.Custom race should litteraly keep you occupied forever .
PD Just needs to add more options .
I'm still at the early stage you just described, always worrying I'll mess things up, getting nervous whenever I'm in a decent position on the final laps, and also intimidated and kinda discouraged by the fact that I'm playing with the DS4. I'm just a DR C / SR S so I should be paired with mostly noobs, but there is always at least one or two DR A in the field. I need a wheel (and the time to play regularly) badly xDI bought the game when it came out and played with the ds4 and told myself this won't work. Bought a wheel and now race seat and haven't looked back.
The sport mode races were super sketchy for me at first, sweat like a pig, heart about to beat out my chest. Have I jacked up some driver's races? Absolutely. What I started doing was looking at the dailies then doing time trials by myself trying to get reasonably quicker though nothing can prepare you for real people driving.
It gets better, still get the occasional soaked shirt though
Just got to DR-A tonight too. Have had SR-S for a while.

My only issue, and it's probably more of a question, is that the instructions as you enter online tell you that you are paired with drivers of your same skill but I didn't find that to be the case because I was clearly the least skilled driver in all my groups
Yup, it does. I myself don't care a bit about my DR/SR, but I know many people do, and with the penalty system still being quite faulted, I don't really want to have other people's records ruined by bad driving on my partI'm guessing a lot of members here (I'm probably guilty of it myself), with their negative rants regarding "other racers" (dirty/stupid etc) or, their focus regarding the prestige of their Dr/Sr add to the intimidation.
