I had my first experience of LFS online yesterday. I hadn't played the demo all that much, but had a go with the Fox at AS Club on my brother's license (offline - he wouldn't let me mess up his online times
I have to give a massive thank you to ZWR-Troy; he (she?) gave me an excellent introduction to LFS online, was very friendly and patient, allowing me to trail him round the circuit, pointing out braking points and the like. Top person
However, I also experienced the flipside of LFS online when more racers came online. I don't mind coming off when I make a mistake, but too often, it seemed, I was taken out by drivers who showed no consideration to others.
At one point I was doing really well in 2nd place and I noticed a driver parked on the chicane. Looking at the list I noticed they weren't an active racer. When I approached, the driver accelerated straight into me, ruining my race. They then immediately disconnected...
Overall I did thoroughly enjoy the experience, but these wreckers did threaten to ruin it for me.
However, I will perservere and hopefully I can be competitive soon.
