I still like this game, but...

...why does the online community suck?

Yes, I get it, it's a racing game, online is bound to suck, but when you're trying to get to level 50 to 1k the game, and everyone's pulling off shit maneuvers like colliding with you full speed just because you overtook them, giving you rants because you accidentally collided with them, and, to top it all off, people deliberately slowing down in front of you, causing you to ram into the back of them and earn a penalty, it just makes a guy go insane!

I like F1 2010, I do, but I've never been frustrated with online play all my life, and trust me, I've played CoD

OK, rant over, prepare to flame on me.

i try to race as clean as possible but if sombody tries to go 200 mph around a corner and into me or pull into me on a straight , i will have to hunt them down and wreck them.. if people cant overtake clean then shouldnt buy racing games

The community sucks because people are so rubbish at the game that they can only win by cheating online, sometimes there will be a few people that are having a clean race but all it takes is one person to spoil that, because then everyone gets annoyed and starts spoiling it for everyone else,
There's not many ways around the problem... there is ghosting but that takes the thrill out of the racing, which is a shame, hopefully the new game is less scared of giving out penalties to dirty drivers.

/end half rant.

Cool I Agree...

This is really annoying for me too! I just want to play a legit game of Formula 1 but No, some idiot goes and cripples you on the first corner... fml.

I've boosted from 33-50, done sprint races from 0-33 and in the end I just got fed up of people not racing properly, its Formula 1...not Destruction Derby -_- I wasn't too surprised mind at how people drove online as it is a age 3+ game, but it's so frustrating when you go down into the 1st corner and some idiot plows into everyone from the back of the grid

I've only done 20k XP and already facepalming at this!

Best advice is if you accidently bump into someone on a corner etc, slow down for a second and give them the place.

There is definitely some decent racers online, just the few that spoil it. I'd say it's worth it for those races you get away clean at the first corner and end up having 3 laps with 2/3 cars pinned together. Great fun!
