I can see that you are not much involved in a team or competition when you bring up these suggestions. Forcing setups would water down the competition status a lot and absolve a big chunk of the team dynamics needed to succeed. Overall it would also halt the esport itself from evolving to something more professional. You pretty much answer your own question about the Virtual LM24h event. rFactor2 is a game. To master its mechanics you need to invest time into it, like any other game, which is why those who play it are generally better than those who don't. Real-life drivers do already have a good amount of work cut out due to their profession, but it's far from enough since a game isn't 1:1 with real life. I completely agree with you that some of the physics flaws in the game go against what you'd expect from its real-life counterpart. I do however not understand your thought process when you call those who use these physical flaws cheaters and seek to sweep the issues under the rug by limiting the freedom in competitions. Better to uncover the rug and clean up piece by piece, cause it'll get uncovered sooner or later.
