    will there be more phases for the F1 2017 beta


    Probably more than one at least because on the e-mail it said that "first phase". There wouldn't be need for that if there was going to be just one test. 

    F1 2016 had three different betas (if I remember correctly) and I assume its something similar this year.

    I missed out last year. But I suppose the same people were used for all 3 phases?

    Why you don't use a pad in the meantime your wheel isn't back? @inspiretheworld
    Anyway i wish you luck for your wheel.

    I think it would be easier having some of the old testers in the new beta. They can be trusted more especially when it comes to the leaking of info. There was only 1 leak of the HUD during last year's beta test. There's a higher chance with a 600 person increase. Who knows really if it could all go to ashes with an extra 600 people. It's 300 per platform correct?


    Disagree with that I know some complete clowns who got beta access last year and could no more spell feedback then provide any,so it doesn't necessarily follow that if you beta tested last year would be a better chance of quality feedback.

    Well surprisingly I got beta access too,given I've been a very vocal critic of codies on here(which is only coz I'm passionate about league racing and want the game to be the best it can be)So thanks the guys at codies I look forward to providing useful feedback.

    I mean yeah obviously keep the good people who provided good feedback. No point of having them in the beta if the feedback they give isn't useful at all.

    Yes, I got an e-mail! I hope that beta access will start really soon and maybe multiplayer mode will be enable to testing. :p This mode is the most important to me, but I will enjoy every part of this Beta.

    I think there won't be no new cars. It was the same last year. 
    We should focus on handling, tyres and laptimes first with comparrison between assits vs. mid- vs. non assited laps and switch between pad and wheel if possible ;) 
    Then check the setup values and try crazy settings to see if there is a hide bug and other stuff like that.

    I think we will get the first three or four tracks to compare our times with the real F1 to get close as possible for the top guys on all platforms. 

    If you want to drive the new cars get Assetto Corsa and the ACFL 2017 Mod :smiley:

    Agreed. I think it will only be time trial right? Yeah so unfortunately we can't check the slipstream or a  new mutation of the tyre wear glitch so all we can do is check the feel and track updates(depending on how many tracks we have)

    Maybe time trail is only for the 1st phase? I'm sure we'll get a upgrade when we come into phase 2

    I don't care too much what happened in the past. I prefer to focus on what is coming next and I am really looking forward to it.

    Simply racing a Formula 1 car is an achievement.

    You can't change what happened. But you can still change what will happen.

    I can do all the assist work and the funny setup stuff, but with no wheel, I obviously can't do that side of things...
    Also, I'm on PS4. So no mods for AC and tbh, I don't even want to play that game anyway lol
  • MR61088MR61088 Member Wheel Nut
    I only wanted to say that you won't get the new cars @Bankai3987 ;)
