Yeah, This is the other reason. Didn't state it because it the more obvious. But if it's as you say and only this it's a newer attitude from leagues. I get the thinking behind it but it is also working against you as a league. People aren't going to sign up to all the leagues just to trial them. As a visitor to a league server it's not only the content that attracts you join that league, It's also a good test toward the attitude of the current members. I have been in leagues before even if not now. I get it to lock the server when your league is running it's series races or events but open them up when there open for practice. Set it up for a short race at the end of the practice time out. Would help to attract more people to rF2.
