Yeah… I also noticed there is almost no traffic on the roads.
And the rare occasion there is, the AI cars either spawn 10 meters in front of you, causing you to crash into them, or they despawn (disappear) the moment they enter your draw distance. It is almost as if PlayGround Games couldn’t afford enough AI cars to fill the map so we have to to share all 5 AI cars between all players in the session
I feel the AI becoming a rammer has something to do with the fact the AI is able to outperform players on higher difficulties thanks to their performance buffs.
This forces players to be more aggressive and rely on having to push them off the road.
As a result the AI inherits this behaviour, which makes them do it in turn on all difficulties, making it worse experience for everyone.
Usually happens when I am doing 300km/h+, it could be lag from server. They literally just poof into existence out of nowhere sometimes. Sometimes they vanish completely when I see them on the edge of my draw distance.
