    Why should I join a league?
    Joining a league is a big step forward in becoming a dedicated sim racer. It also means that you'll not only compete in a full season (or at least most races) but also that you'll race with the same people over and over again.

    What's the benefit of joining a league?
    Naturally, this can and will lead to both friendships and difficult relationships being formed. Nonetheless, each and every league is about clean and fair racing. There's no place for ramming and other shenannigans and we're also, and that's important, taking in-game offences into account when it comes to possible suspensions or bans on the forums.

    How can I be sure that I won't get lapped all the time?
    Pretty simple, actually: RD.com series use different brackets for each platform. They'll be explained later on in this thread.

    Which platforms does RD.com support & what do I need to participate?
    PS3, 360, PC. You'll need a legitimate copy of the game and the ability to play online. Say, a 384kbit DSL connection might not be that great and might cause lag to both you and racing incidents to other drivers because your car is "lagging around the track". A license is also required and can be requested over here for free. All leagues require drivers to use their real names on the forums but the in-game name can be whatever you want.

    Do the leagues have different rules?
    Obviously, yes. Please keep in mind that you don't necessarily have to turn on all assists allowed in each division - you're merely free to do so. If you'd like to disable everything in a league that permits all assists, go ahead and have fun! This is also a great way to balance it out if you can't join a "better" division.
