I'm still hoping for an invite this week...
I'll give it a shot. I don't really have the time to invest to get the most out of the subscription if you compare it to other sim pricing structures, but it might just be good enough to drag me back to my wheel in the free time I do have.
Most of my driving in LFS is offline at the moment. I don't drive often enough to feel 'safe' in proper races, but maybe the safety rating system in iracing will at least work in my favour. When I'm off the pace in LFS, drivers seem to just drive through me, with no regard for racing etiquette or the consequence, and I get frustrated constantly being punted off. If drivers can't just wait 5 laps for another race, and vote for a restart the instant they screw up T1, maybe they'll work for the pass and give racing room rather than take the hotlap racing line no matter what. iracing sounds like it does well at this, with the safety rating, limited races and placing you with similarliy skilled drivers. Maybe races scheduled a little more frequently would be good, but this might come with more subscribers.
It's the pricing scheme that will take some getting used to. Even if you commit to the year and lay down $156, the content is still somewhat limited. Maybe it's just the mindset that needs to change....hell I pay close to that each month for a TV and internet cable package...but I just think $156 a year really should get you all available tracks and cars.
