Thanks for the response. I was already concerned about the developers plans to split the online community down the middle with paid content.
I normally refuse to support games that adopt such practices but I'm just really keen for a decent online arcade racer on PS4.
Clearly Gravel isn't that game.
Recently tried the Baja game and the most recent Flatout but the multiplayer modes in both were ghost towns from day 1.
Happily playing GTS currently, but would love a successful online arcade racer to mix things up.
There just aren't any.
I'll keep an eye on this thread, though, to see if things improve with Gravel.
The DLC doesn't split the community. If DLC appears in the selection screen and you don't own it, you can't vote for it. But if that content wins the vote then you are allowed to play.
If they tweak multiplayer by allowing us to enter any active lobby it would be a huge improvement.
