    Some people actually do lol I kid you not, I've seen people in almost full racing outfits, complete with a racing 'rig' (racing seat bolted to a pedal/wheel mounting set) with wheels/pedals that cost over 1000 bucks, with huge TV's or multimonitor mounts. And more often than not, those are the same people that eat the wall within the first 10 laps lmao

    I mean... whatever floats their boat I guess :D but it's also funny when they take it so serious. If iRacing is such a great sim, why do motorsports teams use rFactor Pro for training and collecting data? :cool:

    Fair enough. I suppose when playing with the upcoming AI, it will allow to change the camera.

    I purchased a year membership last November thinking AI would come out. They set those expectations. I won't be making this mistake again.

    iRacing is an online racing sim made by a dev group that used to be a big chunk of papyrus and bought the rights to essentially continue what papyrus starting in racing sims. iRacing was never designed to have AI as an online platform, kind of like how the online racing for NR2003 never had an AI option.

    Then why are they doing it now? Did they realize online only racing games aren't going to attract that many continuous users? Does anybody have users statistics year in year out that iRacing has had throughout the years?

    Well I can assume from the fact that they are still going steady and have been expanding that they attract a steady number of users, but that would just be a guess.

    @D0rant your routine is getting old with the iRacing bashing. Give it a rest for us please. We need it.

    Bashing? I can't wait to race in it against the AI, man. Just because I'm a perfectionist, doesn't mean I hate the game or its' creators.
