Ok i know i may get slated for this but still.. im curious. We have here an online racing forum for people that i would imagine have a passion for motor racing. I could be wrong but this appears to be 1 of only a few forums online that dedicate themselves to Motor Racing and gaming. So therefore the people that stumble across these forums/sites i would of thought would be a little more hardcore than the average player you see online. So my question is - Why do so many people here rely on assists? It almost feels like an impossibilty to find any leagues or races where assists are banned and actually get any interest. 99% of the races online when you browse the lobbies consist of assist users. I dont really get why people are not a little more adventourous and try binning all the assists, esspecially the traction control (which i must say is a massive advantage online). I cant think of anything more boring than just flooring the throttle out of every corner knowing the car is going to grip. No art in that at all!! If people just started from day one without any help from these aids then im sure people would be suprised at just how quickly they can pick up the skill of feathering the throttle and being quick. Its my number 1 gripe of the game (which isnt really the games fault). For me it makes racing online frustrating.
