    Server browser should show more information
    - Latency
    - Location of the server
    - Maybe after clicking on the server show more information (qualify time, number of laps, what steering aids are allowed etc.. )

    Also make more filters. Right now you can choose: See all servers; or see all servers with password. Maybe a way to exlude passworded games?

    I agree, more info in multiplayer would be very welcome.

    the whole Multiplayer Part seems very basic to me, even gone backwards from rF1 which to me at least is very strange.

    I'd love to know the #laps or race time before getting to the Race Session when on a server, too.

    Could it be, perhaps, that they are focussing on other things, as announced, and mabye later on get some elite coding done for the server browser?
    Just guessing here of course :p

    This has to be a generic screen and not final. I agree that rF1 had a lot more information. I miss the ability to join a race as a spectator and no configuration option exists in this build that I could find. At this point in the beta process I suspect they are focusing on other parts of the program and want to limit what's available in game at this point.

    It would be nice if it were possible to see who was on line in a particular game by "right clicking" the server browser line.

    That multiplayer screen has been added to, gradually. But they're still working on the back end, no point making code to break it.
