Um, so the PS+ Edition has been postponed until further notice and they're still working on the "fully connected experience", whatever that means.

I've honestly stopped caring.

It doesn't sound like a big loss at this point.

However, mercenarily, I hope they offer something to make up for it.

Yeah it's such an epic, epic fail. I'm actually surprised at the lack of anger and LOLZ towards the devs on this one.

Though the fail did get me to buy Horizon 2, which is excellent so I guess I've got that working for me.

Agree completely with this.

I am completely amazed that time and time again, developers and publishers of server and network intensive games constantly underestimate the server capacity required to launch their products.

According to people who have been following this closer than me, it seems like it's less an issue of server capacity, and more an issue that the netcode for the game was fundamentally unsound and unscalable from day one. The reason it's taking so long is that it's not a matter of adding capacity, but of actually re-designing the underlying code so it's functional.

Honestly, it sounds like this would have been better off getting cancelled outright, or going back to the drawing board for a ground-up rewrite.

Yeah, server capacity is probably the least of these guys' problems. If they could fix this by throwing fresh servers at it, it wouldn't have been a problem for more than a few days at most. There's something fundamentally wrong with Driveclub's netcode, though it's impossible to say exactly what. Someone messed up, but it wasn't greed that caused this situation.

They're still working on fixing all of the server issues, but in the meantime they'll be giving out the first DLC packs for free (it was intended to be  paid content):

Hi everyone,

The team at Evolution continues to work diligently to resolve all of the server issues. We know you have all been extremely patient and understandably frustrated during DRIVECLUB’s launch, and to show our appreciation for the support during this challenging time, we will be offering the premium DLC packs for November (25th November-SCEA/26th November-SCEE/27th November-SCEJ) free to those who purchased the full game.

These premium DLC packs – The Ignition Expansion Pack and Photo-Finish Tour Pack along with two livery packs – will give you a total of five new cars, 22 new tour events, 10 new trophies and 10 new livery items to play with online and offline.

The Season Pass will be extended to include four extra packs in July 2015 to ensure players who purchased the pass get everything that was promised. So on top of the free DLC in November, the Season Pass will still include 38 cars, 176 tour events and 80 unique liveries.

On Tuesday we will also be releasing our next game update which includes our first round of player requested feature updates.

In addition to Photo Mode, which will allow you to share your most thrilling moments with your friends, we will be adding:

• Improved multiplayer collision physics to reduce frustrating spin-outs
• Adjustments to soften the corner cutting penalty system
• Options in the club menu to view everything your club has unlocked
• A fix to allow all club owners to update their club badges

This update also includes the first new tracks, which we announced back in September as part of our plans to keep supporting and expanding the game as you play. These include the following free new tracks for online and offline play (also playable in reverse):

• India – Yedepalli
• Scotland – Wester Ross
• Chile – Los Pelambres

Although currently we do not have an update regarding the timing for the launch of the PS Plus Edition, we are continually working on improving the server capacity to enable us to launch the PS Plus Edition as quickly as possible.

Once again, thank you for your support. We are truly sorry that the road to delivering the full DRIVECLUB racing experience on PS4 has been such a rocky one.

The weather update is now out for free, and according to those who've tried it, it completely changes the game in a seriously good way. I've linked to two different YouTube videos demonstrating the weather below. Even if you're not interested in the game, you really should see them. They're that amazing. These are the best graphics in a console game ever.

I haven't read this whole year-old thread, but I was trying to figure out if there are any GT/OO clubs. Honestly I haven't even really figured out how the club thing works yet. My son and I just installed it yesterday and of course PSN is down/hacked. Don't know how that affects DriveClub if at all but we couldn't get the free DLC yet. Anyway...clubs to join?

There is a Gaming Trend club, but it has been full since a few days after release.

I guess it would make sense that clubs have a size cap but I hadn't really thought about it.
