PostSubject: FM5 C-class Spa, lost position and immediate retake   Thu Sep 25, 2014 7:42 pm

Was racing online in C class, and was overtaken on Spa just after Eau Rouge. I was able to take the position back right away, and was pretty clean in the process. The quality isnt the best, but it is a highlight from my twitch.tv stream. I saved the replay, so I will record the whole race sometime tomorrow.

Sorry this has taken so long, my ISP has gimped my upload speed. Supposed to be getting 18 to 20mb/s up, but currently only getting between 0.2 and 4mb/s. So as you can imagine, uploading and live streaming is a bit of an issue for me at the moment.



p.s: I always pull over like that at the start of a public hopper race, it means I usually avoid the first corner chaos.

Surely there must be a better way to avoid first corner crashes than letting everyone pass you at the start lol

^Nope, Its the only way to keep peace of mind throughout the rest of the race, if not you'll probably end up in a worse position off the track or spun out -___-
You've gotta race for a while in the same lobby till the retards get filtered out, other than that you can't trust anyone in the first corner of any track :/

It must be because FM5 is still new and the people who don't care about clean racing aren't bored of it yet. And the C class is fairly entry as well. At least R3 lobbies in FM4 have only 1-2 retards max per 8-12 player lobbies. Good ratio if you ask me.

I used to do the same thing in FM4 as well, unless it was on the ring. Then I would just lift off the throttle slightly, as that main straight is just too long to stop by the side of the track.

I know I have posted this video before, but shows exactly what I mean. This is B class on the ring in a public hopper.



In a public hopper I am not so much bothered about winning, I am more interested in having as clean a race as possible. If by waiting a little at the start of a public race I get that, then that is what I will do.

Id say its more of the fact that FM5 is a launch title and the fact that its hopper lobbies and no public user made ones where the host can boot people.

I enjoyed watching that FM4 'Ring battle your lines are flawless makes me wanna practice on Nurb now.

But that sun glare on Spa is ridiculous.

It seems like no one takes the bus stop properly

Its the incar view, they really went mad with sun glare in that view. But it is easy to deal with once the tracks are learnt. As for the video from FM 4 I posted above, I was really happy with the overtake on the Celica. I just had to bide my time till I had a clean overtake opportunity, which was really annoying as I wasn't on my own pace. Which is why I left that person behind once I got past. They left me open at the worst possible point on the track to be fair, as I was able to carry so much speed through that little kink in the road.

I am not as good on the ring as I used to be, well on FM4 anyway. I mess up my lines far more often than I used too, but I think thats because of those 6 months solid on FM5 with that TX wheel I had lol. Just have to see how bad my lines are now from when I helped Slime out in the M3. Mine is the silver one.

I agree with u 100%. If i can have a clean battle for 3rd or 4th or whatever id prefer that over smashing my way to 1st place. I do the same thing. Let everyone crash in the first corner while i hang back then overtake nice and clean as the race progresses. Lol that orange tho. Btw the bimmer is running 8:12 now!
