GamerMuscle: Why is Rfactor 2 So Dead ?

rFactor 2 is one of the benchmarks of modern racing sims, supporters of the platform are adamant that the title, despite the unacceptably bad user-interfaces (yes old and new are terrible) but the physics and gameplay are the best in the business.

Indeed TheRace, and their numerous high-profile leagues as well as the official Virtual Le Mans 24 Hours organisers have it as their preferred sim game.

Yet the online lobbies are virtually dead or only decent servers are passworded and restricted to leagues and members which begs the question: With Rfactor 2 having so many great aspects and it also being one of the leading Esports platforms why is it so dead? GamerMuscle has his say!
