    Right, but a proper Elo system would mean that the higher your rating the less points you get for every win so there comes a point where you can´t progress so quickly anymore as each win counts for less. @Nico Kunze you are in p31 with only 22 races and even there is one person in the top 20 with the same races. Did you ever do a race on one of the free track/car combo servers? On those it is pretty easy to be taken out by a noob and DNF with the best ability in the world.

    Thats the way it is in r3e as well. At 20 races my gains for a win were already much smaller than they were after 5 or 10 races and the guys even further at the top hardly gain a significant amount in a single race at all
    Not any time recently but when i started with the ranked races i did quite a few races in the aquila on portimao. Never had any trouble there tho except for one or two hairy moments while lapping somebody but as i said that was quite some time ago so things mightve changed there

    So what´s the explanation as to why the ranked servers are usually empty? Is it the content used or the system or something else?
    For me the decline came when they servers were split by regions. It´s a bit absurd to have a single ranking system when it is not possible to face off against a player from another region due to ping limits.

    1 )Because someone have to enter practice mode to start timer, then wait 15min and in this time noone will noticed that race will start, noone will expect.
    2)People dont want to wait more than 2min on "match" in any game and people dont want to practice for solo race.
    3) any new or casual player knows this ranked system exist.
    I wrote suggestion what will fix this empty serwers. One Word, schedule.

    Disappointing as I have solo lapped for 14 minutes waiting for anyone to join to no avail. Not sure what the next step is for S3 to get some momentum with these servers but I pretty much have given up hoping to find someone to race with.

    I got tired of being rammed in the first couple of corners or have someone "hunt" you down and ruin your race. All is well and good but my rating takes a major tumble because of these people. So I gave up on the servers. I would love to join a community but I work shift work and am in Canada. It is hard to find competitive racing without the wreckfest mentality.

    Yup, the obligation to join a room before qually is probably the single most important reason why people don´t join anymore. It´s like these rooms with 3 hours of practice for a 5 minute race. Why?
    For that we have single player mode or leaderboards. Multiplayer should be about racing not hot lapping.

    I know the reason behind it and to some extent it worked but maybe too well as now there are not just no problematic players but no players full stop.

    Closing the server in qualification limits the participants It's true but in my case every time that someone connects I lose the FF for an instant and many times end up with offtracks

    After the boom of Online Drivers during the Coronavirus Lockdown, the Average Daily Peak is dropping back to values similar to before the Lockdown earlier in the year. This is no doubt one of the (potentially) many reasons why Numbers are low lately from what others are saying, link here for Stats & Graphs which shows the decline quite clearly:

    The problem of ranked is to find all the levels. I am far from being the best but I defend myself a little.
    I understand that everyone has the right to play, and I have nothing against new players, quite the contrary.
    But a number of them do anything in the race.
    In qualifying, leaving the pit, they cut you off, or smash you at the first corner. Defend anyhow etc.
    We find the same configuration as on public servers.
    Maybe on private servers, players are more correct and know a bit about the rules.

    What always irittates me in any public race are people leaving it after some minor crash or position loss. Like, seriously? Why not bringing it to the end? Why not fighting for the one place before last? Or you know, just crossing the S/F line? It's notorious when there are ~20 drivers on the grid, but only 5-6 of them make it to the end.
