One thing that I think is wrong with the overall system now, is that it's easier to increase your DR by maintaining a lower average SR... When I see some drivers who have 35-40k DR, or more, whose SR looks like a cardiograph trace, it says to me that it pays to ride that sweet spot between getting reset and an A DR. You can mop up in easier lobbies, starting from the front more often, and increase your DR easier than if you maintain a 99SR... You can see the potential when you have to run a few Daily Races in A SR or low S SR lobbies... it's so much easier to pick up 400 points in a 10-min daily race, or 1000 points an hour, if you keep your SR around 80-90 instead of perfectly clean. When you see 60 K' speed score drivers at 40k DR, I think this is often the case. I know K' scores are not the end-all... but fact remains: it's easier to climb in DR if you aren't perfectly clean. And that's a fault in the system, especially if you approach the latest standards (absolutely zero contact to the car in front of you) as sacred and avoid SR downs... you'll both take away potential finishing spot opportunities and also not benefit from the dynamic I summarized above. And to those that want to take advantage of the system... well, it makes it all the better for them. Not ideal.
