So I'm finally thinking about getting another serious racing sim. AC being on sale right now on Steam is a huge temptation, as I don't have a lot of money at this moment.
Now, I've tried AC for a few hours (please don't ask me how), and I know I'll love the physics and handling, graphics, ffb, everything.
I'm also pretty sure that rFactor 2 would do the same for me. It doesn't look as good, but it's still nice to look at.
Now here comes the issue:
Some people have said that the online in AC is a mess because you get so many bad drivers on public servers.
Some people have said that the online in rFactor 2 is a problem because half of all servers will have some sort of mod configuration running that you don't have, and you'll spend ages looking for the right server.
What is your take on this? If the online mode in AC is enjoyable without joining a racing league and relying on fixed racing times etc (I don't have much time to race), then it's an almost instant buy for me.
If not, I seriously have to think about forking over the 50 USD for rf2. Also, rf2 has dynamic weather and this awesome, awesome "real road" feature...
