Solo Sport Mode Lobbies At Night?

4 posts in this topic

Can somebody confirm getting put in solo sport mode lobbies at odd times? I m just tired of being first and then getting pushed out of the curve and end up loosing. The online trophies should ve just been limited to finishing 320 races not winning ahem getting lucky to not get hit and set inhuman lap times

I think I've seen a couple posts on other sites where people claim to be put in a lobby on their own, so it seems to be very, very rare.
In the chance you ever do end up in a lobby solo, the odds aren't likely enough for it to be done 91 times for the trophy.

From my experience of joining sport mode's lobbies at much later times, there's typically always at least half the lobby occupied, more or less. Usually there's always people who play the game religiously that you'll spot here and there. Gran Turismo games are quite populated until the servers get shut down like Gran Turismo 5 and 6. However, they should keep Sport up until at least 7 comes out, so you've got a year at minimum still, which is plenty of time.
 

As a good tip regarding being sent to the shadow realm and ending up losing like you mentioned; sometimes it's certainly possible to win if you start off in 3rd. There are times where the people in 2nd and 1st can be too busy competing against each other to focus on you, and that's a good chance to slip by. It doesn't always play out like this of course, but it's a good way to at least get a few wins, so always see a race through, even if you don't begin in 1st. Plus, it'll make the 322 races trophy less grindy in the long run.

Take a look at the other threads too, lots of people have given some great suggestions for how to maintain 1st place. Good luck! 😎

I purposely qualified in third and took advantage of first and second battling each other, even taking each other out in the process.  I won maybe half of my races that way.

It can happen, but going after an odd solo lobby won't get you anywhere. Just learn how to drop your ratings, get a respectable time in a car/track combo you like more each week and start from pole. Yes, people can be annoying, but following this strategy you are looking to get those Sport Mode trophies in a month. I did. And I'm an average player, at best, and with a DS4.

 

And sorry for disagree, but those Sport mode trophies are the only thing that make this platinum somewhat harder and rewarding. I'm glad they are there because they make you earn it.
