I'm getting to the point where I'm just about done with this game. I'm not having fun, I'm getting angry at things that shouldn't happen and ... I'm tempted to put my controller down and wait for GT7. The SR system is broken - contact should not always results in a drop for BOTH parties (bump drafting is a perfect example) and it would not be hard to put in place a rule that if you are on a straight and you turn into someone, it's obviously your fault and they should not be penalised for it by an SR drop too. This is online, things can lag and reactions won't be as brilliant for all players so some contact is inevitable but not all of it is malicious. At the moment, the only way to build up your SR back up in any meaningful way is to start at the back, go slow and just finish the race without racing - this is not how it should be! Penalties don't make sense either - cut a corner just slightly going onto a straight thereby gaining a huge speed advantage = 0.5s. Smashing your car head first into a barrier and coming to a dead stop = 5.0s. Many times when you get one it's like insult to injury because you've already hurt your race by going wide and then it says "here's some penalty on top mate". If you have the system in place, use it more effectively (ie. use the pit-lane as a penalty too!). I always said with the previous time-system that you could run down whenever you wanted that if you finished the race with penalty it should be doubled to discourage people holding onto it till the end or crossing the line with it.If you punt someone off and the games wants to penalise you for it, make the offender have a drive-through penalty. It means that for ****ing up someone else's race, yours is too. The time penalty that they receive is nothing compared to the time lost by the injured party, EVER. My two cents - the current system is worse than before- go back to an older version and tweak that. There are things in the current system that DO work but so many that DON'T. Oh, and who's idea was it to put penalty zones in the MIDDLE of straights? - we get it, it forces people to serve them and they get properly punished ...why not at the start of the straight instead? Think about it PD!
