Finally racing you've no idea what is going on because your pitboard doesn't show up.

Were you using a mod track?

No. We were trying to race on Washington.

As someone who doesn't play this game often and only checks back every few months to keep up with progress, I agree with what RC said too. It's really important to me to be able to get into a game quickly and easily. I've never even tried online before, only single player, and I find even that could be a little quicker to get to the track from your desktop.

I just wanted to echo the desire for a better way to select tracks/gear/bikes while in-game. I also personally don't feel like content should be a concern, either. I'm perfectly happy playing on the exact same tracks for years. I've been playing on strictly AMA SX/MX tracks in MXS for like a decade now, often going back to the 2010-2013 years lol. I suppose if MXB ever hits Steam store, all the mods and user content can always be easily be accessible via Steam Workshop anyway? I don't know anything about that front though.

Besides all the quality of life stuff, I've been pleased with the progress of the game over the years. I try it out ever so often with each update and I can usually tell a big improvement was made in the physics and feel of the bike control. Ultimately if that keeps improving, I guess it doesn't matter how long it takes to get into a race, because I'm going to gravitate towards the game that feels the most realistic to me.
