You all know what this is going to be about, but how frustrating is it to play a racing game online and just the massive pile-up that happens in EVERY single racing game on the first turn. The only even marginal solution I've come up with is so just let eveyone go in the beginning and hope to avoid the mess of 5 of 6 cars that is there in a pile on the first turn of every race.
Do you think there is a way for developers to discourage this? If the game forced damage on collisions I don't think it helps because it would hurt the guy with no brakes and the guy driving clean. I guess the only real answer is to play with people you know that don't drive like assholes, which I guess is the answer to any gaming online. So now that I've answered my own question I am just venting and rambling, but man fuck that first turn in racing games online!
