If you play in a race with 16 douches, you know that it will be horrible.  Rockstar should make the races max at 8.  That way, we don't have to fight to get ahead by the time races are over.  All people do is spin each other out anyway.

Sounds like fun to me. In races that large, a little chaos is understandable and fun.

Free aim races = more mature players & less douches trying to PIT you. It does still happen, but not nearly as bad.

Any race with that many people is bound to have some paint swapping though. I enjoy fuller race lobbies. Makes things harder & more exciting.

people who want a game based on skill are probably less likely to play cheap. makes sense

Sometimes, if I'm in the mood, I really love these 16 player races because of how crazy it gets. The real satisfaction is knowing any win is TOTAL LUCK :)

Actually it has quite a bit to do with it. Young immature chaps like yourself tend to let the game play itself on AA while older more mature players tend to play on FA. Ive rarely had anyone intentionally try to take me out in a race playing on FA.

I just would like a ghost mode as an option

 

I love GTA races, but I can rarely find them. The PIT ruins normal races, it's just a lottery.

 

they go to so much effort to warn us about being bad sports and actually put together a terrible system for dealing with them

Because not wanting to put yourself at a disadvantage makes you unskillful.

Yea, okay.

Had a few 16 players races last night, and they were awesome - mainly because people were actually racing and no rammers in sight.

 

The only thing that pisses me off is the laggy glitches when you're clear in front and the next second 3 cars jump in front of you.

 

That sucks

Of course they're insane. That's the point.

 

Not really that hard to back out and find a new race if you're really that set against them.

I think it's awesome. Starting to get used to the crashing and stuff, so I lay low until they are finished with the first "big crash", then I slipstream everyone and win. I'm succeeding half the time.. Before I started to lay low I didn't succeed at all unless I was lucky.. Or had the heaviest car

If by harder & more exciting you actually mean "a clusterf*ck of genetic mistakes ramming each other like the simple-minded quarter-wits they are", then yes, they are "harder & more exciting".

That's not satisfying at all.

 

 

 

Also, traffic needs to be off in the big races.  Lag is generally a problem.

I was In A 16 player GTA motorcycle race the other night and it was a totally blast. As soon as weapons were enabled,the world went crazy. Bullets flew everywhere and then I tossed a sticky bomb behind me into the mass of the pack and took out half the race while the rest of us continued the parade of destruction down the course. So much fun, way better than criminal records.

Totally agree. Trying to get people to vote for anything other than the borefest of Down The Drain and Criminal Records is the hard bit. At least they're only 8 player races.

16 players works best in very long races (e.g. Grand Tour) or in GTA mode.

 

GTA mode is quite different though - it's also one of the few times I'd welcome catchup being on.  Even if I'm in first place, I kinda want someone to catch up with me so we can fight it out some more.

Metagaming is the epitome of skill. Metagaming is as cheap as you can get, if you think there are imaginary rules that need to be followed. You fail to understand that skill means win! No point in giving you any quarter now, is it?

 

It only makes sense if all in the lobby have the same idea about HONOR. But that is an entirely different problem.

Since no one else decided to mention why he said this, I will. If you have your gun aim set to free-aim in your options, it will also affect what race lobbies you join.

So people with Free-aim set as their shooting option will not see the same people in races as people with Auto-aim set.

 

For those never seeing a 16 player race, just choose to host "Commute": and let the auto-invite suck in all the rammers. :lol:

16 players with traffic on is so rediculous. Taking turns in a big group with heavy nps traffic, It doesnt matter if ppl are trying to wreck each other or not. Its gonna happen the entire race. One person will get lucky and avoid it or just a really nice spin that keeps them in the right direction and get a big lead. the rest of the pack will continue to destroy each other and guarentee his victory, sh*t he can start obeying traffic laws and win
