I have complained about this since FM2 days and still it remains a problem. Tonight in the Forza GT Endurance lobby one single backmarker was spoiling everyones race. The obvious fix which I have mentioned since FM2 is anyone who falls one lap behind remains a ghost until they unlap themselves. So my question to Turn 10 is from a technical point of view can this be done?
If the answer is no then Turn 10 need to recruit volunteers to monitor the behaviour of these types of players and have the ability to remove them. They are a curse to those who wish to have clean racing and it only takes one person to ruin a lobby of 24. At the moment its difficult to identify some of these people because some names to not appear above the cars. This also needs fixing.
Or it’s because nobody from Turn 10 pays attention to these forums and what the community want to see. For instance how often do you see the Forza community manager actively posting in these forums? answer hardly ever!
That’s all well and good but it really shouldn’t be that way. I tend to not care if someone wreaks me in a public hopper because let’s face it just a random race. However I’ve had some great races ruined by this behaviour too. I stopped playing Forza when the Xbox one came out, because I decided to not buy one. I’d like to think issues like this would of been worked out by now. I guess it’s harder to sort out then we think, or it’s not something T10 considered to be big issue.
This is the reason i rarely go in to public lobbies, prefer to stay in private with people who are genuinely trying to race clean. People do make mistakes and crashing happens but in public lobbies it seems like many drivers aim to take you out if you get past them.
