    Not sure if I'm getting ahead of myself or if this means there will be a way for private lobbies to be ran on dedicated servers... If it is the case, I hope the feature is available for all players.

    Some local dudes tried to organize a race last weekend and it was disaster... Many people couldn't join lobbies due to how poor our internet infrastructure is. (Most people had NAT Type 3 because they were using mobile internet)

    I suspect it'll be used for things like Top 16 Superstars, rather than something more generally available.

    So much for having dailies with friends that add to our win count. :rolleyes:

    The puzzling part is the word "new", because other than the custom driver names we saw yesterday, everything else in the Superstars race has existed since 2018.

    But... hey, if they want DLC ideas... I'd pay an absurd amount of money to get my hands on that tool :lol:

    That would just be another cheap way to farm wins in sport mode.

    Eh. At least it's with people I can trust not to slam me off the track.

    This is cool, might be a way to announce twin ring motegi, it is the next round. But that is more wishful thinking than anything else

    I'm a simple man. All I ask for is tire compound requirements and penalty zones in lobbies ala Sport Mode.

    (and possibility of lobbies requiring passwords)

    Hopefully the upcoming patch will fix lobbies.

    Haven’t been able to have a successful race without race start glitches for yonks—and this is with just six of us in a lobby. It’d be super embarrassing for PD if these Super Formula events are similarly impacted.

    I just hope they have actual good race officiating. Not to bang on the Indy fiasco, but I hope they looked at it, and said "...Well, let's not do that."
