Maybe they even deserve an "advantage" for the effort of using a clutch and h pattern, but then if I wanted to be competitive in Sport mode I was forced to buy T3PA+TH8A (more or less 260€) since Thrustmaster doesn't give you them in bundle with the T300RS (already a 300€ buy). Then the whole narrative of Sport mode "from 7 to 77" thing that PD wants to push goes to hell.
The same goes for getting a wheel or not getting one at all as well; €300 vs €0. I know there are great players with DS4 but I personally benefit a lot from using a wheel. Then what would PD do if one day they find out people on wheels lap better times than those using DS4 (hypothetically speaking)? Nerf the wheels too?
