    I'm in for 1 night a week. There is a guy on OS who got the game this morning and has been posting updates rather frequently. Sounds very good, glad I picked this up on preorder.

    yea it will be one race a week, giving guys time to practice and set up their cars each week.

    Perhaps a better question once the game is released and everyone gets a feel for a good number. Also, if you're a NASCAR fan, you know laps differ each week. The game settings are done in % of full race, not laps.

    You put up anything on OS about this? I know they already have a dedicated thread on this, but its grown rather large. I have to think there are others that would be willing to start small.

    I'm having fun in my career mode with Denny Hamlin. But yeah, if you're speaking of online, it needs a patch.

    I'm also curious. Should the rest of us who haven't bought the game wait until they release a patch? I'm only really interested in racing online with some of you.

    I've enjoyed it and I'm not a "console racer". I've played online sims for over 10 years, IRacing etc, I also race a legends car in real life, so for me to sit down and say yea its a descent racing game takes a lot. It's this companies first attempt at it, it has it's flaws but overall, it's better then any racing game EA ever tried to make for xbox or anything. It has it's issues online, I've ran a few online races, they were fun but you don't get to practice or qualify.

    i am reading that the online portion is completely messed up. I am told that small races (fewer cars) have been ok but for the most part people are going to be waiting for a patch. I also read caution flags are disabled online.....wth?

    Not just online, even in my career mode there are yellow flag issues. I've spun out a few times and the yellow never came out. From the reports I've read, the patch fixed this for the PS3 but its been less effective on the 360. The developers have been pretty active in that they have already posted comments to the feedback. I'm confident some issues will be resolved in a patch. If not, the career mode - which is fun for me - will be all that I do in 2011.

    every online race i entered last night i was immediately hurled end over end and other cars are crashing all around... and this is suppose to be the pace lap. Was chaos... and crazy that a game would be released in that condition.

    the papyrus console game from like 1997 or something? well the graphics are much better but I'm sure you know that. I liked the ole papyrus console game because you could drive the car down pit road, under caution, all that. As far as the driving style of NTG, I like how you have to actually lift off the gas and use the brake. Most console racing games are just unlimited grip.

    The game has its flaws, thats expected. It needs a more in depth career mode and stuff but as far as overall gameplay for their first attempt, I'm happy with it.

    I'd be interested in getting some NASCAR laps in this Friday night at midnight (EST) if we can get some people together.
