Bought multiple DLC to join an rF2 league. First race: rF2 performance problems, race ruined. Two races later: Fanatec Clubsport V1 pedals acting up: ruined qualifying. I replugged the USB between quali and the start of the race, to fix them temporarily (as always). During the race my T300 shifter paddles randomly refused to shift and randomly double shifted, problems they've developed recently. In the end I ragequit and regret wasting my time. League races take preparation time, and at least half your races are ruined by random BS. Technical issues with your gear, your internet, some other car spins and takes you out of the race, or your top of the line PC power supply blows up. Your time and effort are hardly ever rewarded. Gear wise, simracing has a problem too: Thrustmaster gear doesn't last with regular use, Fanatec gear has proven to me to be extremely unreliable, and the "pro" stuff is unaffordable. My wheel and pedals by Fanatec have always had widely known issues that were never solved. The Thrustmaster T300 that replaced my fanatec wheel is not much better with its paddle shifters glitching and recently started making all sorts of electrical noises. It seems if you don't want hours of prep work and race weekends ruined by gear issues you have to upgrade to OSW and Heusinkvelds or w/e (assuming these are reliable, and the latter are out of stock) but that would be financially irresponsible, for me and most people. To me, the time and money to fun ratio just isn't good enough in league simracing. I have lots of games in my Steam library, most of which are fun right out of the gate - you don't have to spend hours tweaking numbers (car setup) or training (solo running 150 laps on a track) before the fun can begin, and they don't require large investments for game genre specific gear that always breaks. If I'm to race again, I'll need pedals and a wheel that offer actual reliability at an affordable price. Currently that doesn't seem to be an option. I'll take suggestions, but I fear I'm gonna have to call it quits.
