I totally agree. I was really hesitant to use the word "scam" but I left it just because it is often used in the same context. Maybe "rip-off" would be a better way to put it.@BeardedsWolf ... This has been gone over multiple times in multiple threads... You dont need to buy all the cars and tracks... especially in one go !
The secret is to plan out the championships you want to race in and only buy what you need to race in that season. If you buy in lots of 3 or 6 you get discount. After a few seasons you'll find you actually dont need to buy much anymore.
Also you can earn credits just by participating in official championships, a season is 12 weeks, all you need to do is 8 out of the 12 and you get credits back.
And in regards to the subscription, find a code and sign up on a deal, then wait for the membership renewal deals (usually 25% off).
Yes iRacing is expensive that is no secret or new news, but if you purchase smart and enter official races you can save yourself a lot of money.
I cant answer the Steam thing, my guess is its on there just to gain a bit more exposure.
And TBH these cost complaints are really starting to annoy me now ... The advertised costs are all USD once I convert them to NZD and add credit card fees etc I end up using phen375 for 2 months and posted my results here paying a lot more than the rest you !! Be thankful for what you got.
