For those that can’t steer..
Fellow F1 enthusiasts, I want to start a dicussion on a new game mode, or a re-work on the current driving modes. Everyone is starting to see the bumps off the grid and purposeful bashing, we are not able to combat this while giving drivers the option to steer their cars.
Lets remove that option! We dont need to till or tap to steer, real racers steer without issue. Racing comes from the timing of the gas, the brakes, the gears. Im suggesting a reaction mode. Ever play MotoGP mobile? I think F1 could be epic with a control scheme like this while adding in DRS and gear control.
Also the events could be awesome for reaction based gaming and give everyone a chance to prove their “speed” taking the car “power” and other drivers out of contention.
Basically we are in the throttle or in the brakes (or both) and we race by going through points and hold down the control options. When going through a point our “touch to point” reaction is measure by the thous of a second. Better reaction gives our car a “boost” mathmatically againist the other drivers. Maybe add a “takeover” when pulling next to a car where a mini layover pops up the fastest driver to complete the correct gear or throttle get the advantage (straight aways are easier to handle then curves).
This mode and ideas makes it so the driver matters most. Not the in app car purchase, not the bad drivers that take us out. Leaderboard events for real life merch, team merch, used track day items, anything! Say 10 different events per week, drivers only allowed to register for 1 of the ten events and Race!
Does anyone share this development idea? Think it to be valid? Please post below and add input, thoughts or emotional outbursts.
Thanks F1 Community!
