    I'm trying to subscribe some championship but i must have all contents... it's not fair... Why i penalize if i don't want to race with Mercedes or Bentley, for exemple? Disapointed....

    In all honesty: if you prefer to not play instead of find cars that you and your friends have , and use them, is your choice. Unfortunately at the present moment, rf2 has 12 gt3 , and you need them all to run on a server that has them all. The problem will surface again if and when a new gt3 will enter the field.

    It can be a pretty bad surprise for those who bought only they favorite gt3 and realize later, that they can't use it online...
    Let's at least recognize that...
    Not everybody is supposed to know this, especially since it's not mentionned cleary on steam... and it's a thing for one of the most popular sim out there... yet, another thing that migh mislead the average joe...

    @Mangoletsi You missed your chance to keep your mouth shut. Ah please.......
    We complain, because our reality here is: the price of the Pack is 20% of a minimum wage.
    And more..... of our group, there are more than 5 people who only bought one package because they did not know about such a diluted package.

    If you don't have money to purchase the premium content, use the free content.

    End of Story.

    Never end a story that way. The point is not to have money or not to buy content, but the way in which you enjoy the purchased content.

    We are talking, but you should not have seen, that we bought a part of the official content of the game, but it is stopped ... without being able to enter several MP lobbys, because it is necessary ALL the cars in this package.

    We already understand the form of business, we already understand how it works. But we can show our point of view, show that there is another way to be able to use the purchased content.

    In the end, we saw that in any game there are fanboys ... where they cannot see anything other than what is already done. I have some of the content, I will enjoy it as I see fit, and if applicable one of the ways is not to play.

    Do you know who loses with that? The developers, because they lose a large audience, for answers like yours. You do not send anything in this company, do not represent anything of them and come up with this ridiculous answer.

    If you don't agree with our vision, OK. But let the developers, whoever really understands and sends it, respond.

    Fair enough.
    You may have a long wait for S397 to answer, as this is the rfactor2 community forum, S397 staff rarely read what's posted here. S397 staff use Discord.

    Statements made by S397 included mention of a process for us/we to have the missing content identified for us. Remember, quite some time ago it was mentioned that the packaging system,(a holdover from the original non-DLC ISI code) was being looked at. If they are NOW saying they want to help users find the DLC they need, that would imply that changing the ISI matchmaker code is not achievable. The entire methodology of rF2 was that users could download the free mod/cars/tracks from whatever server they joined. DLC has certainly complicated the entire process. That downloading proved problematic as the actual download speeds were limited so as not to impact those driving already on the server.
    I am stunned at 'some' of the improvements S397 has made, I am disappointed at the pace of those improvements.

    I don't want to lose hope. I hope they are working to get around this problem. It would be much more interesting, for us consumers, that we could buy only the cars we want to race and compete against others in the same class

    Truth. I have stopped GT3 content because I don't have a car to ride with other people who have the same pack with one more car.

    Tomorrow, I would just buy the Ferrari GT3! :)

    In the end it is about making choices, which is very personal. For me it is one of the things in life that relaxes me and therefore worth it.

    OK! Thanks to those who understood the point of view, what we tried to pass on.
