    The only game that I really play online is PDZ, but I have played a few games of DOA4 also.

    The one thing that really bugs the hell out of me is opposite spawn camping. In other words, in team kill count the other team will just rush the others spawn and will shoot them the second they spawn. That bug the heck out of me.

    I have heard that most people on PGR are a pretty friendly bunch, I dont own it personally but I am sure there are a lot of people here that would give you a nice non cheesy game :)

    find the online leagues are terrible, the friendly matches are normally okay but still not as good as PGR2.

    Gets really annoying at the nurburgring on the last tight corner seem to get rammed off everytime

    PGR online is like Counterstrike - pointless on public games unless you play with your mates. Sign upto that big PGR thread somewhere below on this forum and keep an eye out when games are being played between us. Most of the peeps here are good gamers, but accidents do happen, especially when I'm around :D

    Its not that bad - just remember its only a game.

    Played for 3 hours online this afternoon in online career and probably met 3 or 4 people who were deliberately knocking people off, everyone one else was at least trying to race, but many of them just werent very good. After a while you start to learn where its safe to overtake them and which players to take out before they do it to you.

    Mind you though, I will never handbrake turn over a finish line again. I did it today on Majestys Pleasure and came to a stop aboout a foot off the line. Didnt realise att first then watched everyone from 3rd to 7th pass me lol. Cost me a drop from 9455 to 10100ish :(

    Today I've gone from 1800 to 8000 :eek:
    I'd say 1 out of 2 races I'd get pushed to the back at the start.
    Then anyone you try and pass, just bumps you straight off.
    Still fun, just spoilt by a few.
    I really wonder how the top 1000 manage to stay up there.

    They're the ones who usually resort to dirty driving, anything to keep their position on the board.
