    Mostly 2-3 secs behind the Top10!
    I use a controller and dont hate me, use X and square instead of L2 and R2 :p

    But my pace got worse since the tire update. And I barely race anymore. The game got dry for me month ago. I really hope they change something in sport mode to make it more interesting throughout the week...

    I was working on getting into the top 10 hot laps for Brands Hatch using a stock F1500, then update 1.39 happened and the car was hampered by cartoon understeer and reduced top speed. Best I can manage so far is 1:10.598 using a controller, and I cant see getting into the 1:09's on the current update.

    About 10 seconds usually, 9 to 8 in a track that I'm usually good in hot lapping.

    In GT Academy 2010 I was about 1 second off the fastest times in the world. In GT Sport, between the bizarre & ever changing physics plus the awful FFB, I've yet to feel comfortable pushing the cars to their limits, so have not really tested myself against the best. I think I'd probably be a lot slower though, as I'm out of practice as well.

    My careful gaming of my K' Speed Score has finally come to fruition, with one of my accounts now having a score of 82.84. With a bit more careful gaming of it I can maybe reach 85:

    Slow enough to give up on Sport Mode. eSports is a cancer. Sorry that I don't have all the time in the world to "git gud" - maybe if you paid me, like an actual racer does, I'd be more inclined. But for now, it's all just a stupid game. Games are meant to be fun, not a soul-crushing job where you don't even get paid. And if I'm not having fun, I'm not gonna play anymore. If it weren't for the updates, I might've sold this game a while ago, now that I think about it.

    All of that is the same for conventional sports, isn't it? Most people who compete at conventional sports don't get paid and will never be in the elite top few. The reason I like GTS is because it isn't like a job, unlike another driving game that used to be my main focus. The game doesn't demand that I play it, it's happy for me to just play it if I feel the need to play a driving game, and that's exactly what I want from a driving game. The exception to that is the FIA races have started to feel like a bit of a treadmill, as they do demand that you play the game at specific times on specific days, so I may stop doing those.

    If been within a second on the short courses like Tsukuba and Suzuka East recently, however on larger tracks I somehow can't get the rythm and miss 2 to 4 seconds

    i would say im a few percent (2-3) slower the big dawgs on most days. There are certain combinations of car/track that dont suit me (like everyone)..
    but hey ive accepted that!

    Recently I've been able to get as close as 2-5/10ths away from Top 10 on the Dailies

    But recently I've learned not to trust dailies because I'm consistently 1-2 seconds behind the Top 10 on the FiA Championships :lol:

    I tend to perform better in the daily race A, using a controller and can usually break into the top 300 in EMEA and occasionally the top 100. Find that the A race allows me to find the limits of the car much easier, when it comes to B and C I’m always a bit further behind, more than likely because I need the TC at least set to 1 as it’s so hard to control anything faster than GR 4 with no TC and a DS4!

    Then why do they bother? Is it fun? Because I have a hard time thinking GTS in particular is fun when I’m always gonna stay at around 21k DR. It makes my starting and finishing positions feel the same every race. It makes me feel like I’m only playing to feed other people wins, like how free players feed whales in a gacha game.

    It makes the idea of trying to ruin as many racers as possible in one race before being forcibly kicked out sound fun, when it shouldn’t. Maybe fun isn’t even the right word, but perhaps at least cathartic, in a ranked mode where I can spite all the try-hards taking their pretend racecars so seriously. None of these people will win the FIAGTCs, so I may as well accelerate that realization for them instead of leaving all these people to delude themselves into thinking they have a chance.

    Nobody but the people at the World Tour events have a chance, and even then, Fraga’s got a stacked deck because he doesn’t really belong there, or any of the others with real-world careers in motorsport. The rest of us are all just feeders. eSports was a mistake.

    I’ll do you one better - I’ll throw the disc at the wall like a frisbee, and watch it shatter. Then I’ll just drink some whiskey untill I pass out.

    I've got no love for eSports or online gaming in general, but you're taking this too seriously, and excuse me for saying it, but you sound like an incredibly sore loser. If you don't enjoy something, just don't do it.. you don't need to go down in blaze of trolling other players. You're not good enough to get the glory so if you can't enjoy the competition, accept it, or git gud.

    Yes, in real life many people find it fun to take part in a sport where they don't get paid, and where they are always mid-field. I can see that sport mode becomes a bit pointless once you feel you're reached the limit of where you can get to, and if it's not fun once you've reached that stage, I'd look for another activity that you can enjoy improving at.

    On a track i am good at (Ring GP, Bathurst, interlagos) i will get within 2.5 to 3%, other tracks are over 3% and the ones I am atrocious at (Suzuka, Fuji) i'll be well over 5%.

    There are some tracks i just cannot figure out to save my life.

    On the Nordschleife I am usually 4-10 seconds off the worlds best. Not too bad I guess.

    You’re right. I’m a sore loser in GTS - I’ll admit to that. I’m also a sore loser in the real world, too!

    Do you turn a net profit, though? I used to compete at a sport where I won a reasonable amount of money, but it didn't exceed my costs in taking part.

    Re happy losers, sometimes you can win and lose at the same time, for example in GTS you might be number 1 in your country, but not number 1 in your region. I don't think it makes someone a loser if they're happy at the fact they're number 1 in their country. If everyone who didn't win a gold medal at the Olympics in a world record time was miserable, there would be a lot of miserable people in the world. Rejoice in the successes you can achieve, and never take them for granted, because the ability to do these things doesn't last for ever.

    In a good season one could turn a profit but it didnt happen often. Unfortunately for tax purposes you had to claim a small profit occaissionally to keep the tax man off of you rearend.
