Personally (having not see the level of issues you have) I don't have an issue if it takes them time to sort them out properly but they do need sorting.
No offense I hope but I wish I had a dime for every road racer that says.. I see no problems with iracing.
Most of those people (road racers) don't run anywhere the amount of races oval racers usually run. Being that I ve down both extensively I can say after 1st lap its like comparing apples to oranges.
After 1st lap one car generally can't cause huge pile up like take for instance on a track like Richmond. One car or driver that races like a goof can screw up the entire race just by blocking or spinning every lap. While on a track like Silverstone or Sebring you just go around people like that.
They need to make hosting free. Let the leagues train drivers, I've said that since day one in beta. Instead JH was quibbling about how much hosting should cost in thread that went on for a month or more in beta .
They already reduced the cost of hosting and should just drop the charge or make it a monthly charge of unlimited race hosting for say 20$ to 30$.
I used to host 10 races a day in other games that would cost a small fortune to do at iracing. I don't like being forced to race with people I don't like or people I consider wreckers.

I somewhat disagree with this. You can be a rookie never move up and experience all IR has to give and maybe more. By cars and tracks your interested in and just league race.
If more people do this it will prove that leagues are more important then IR's glorified league.
That is exactly what Ir is a glorified league. I was there when they were strongly against on there forums leagues because they had a fear that leagues would ruin there tier system or take away or thin the driver pool out.
Now there basically begging leagues to join because I think they realize that trying to stamp out or discourage league play is bad in every way. Community's race clubs and leagues build our hobbies game interest, this site is proof of THAT!
