  1. So with the new multiplayer car designed as an independent car in 2019 which is customisable along with overalls and driver swaps, I fully expect a custom team mode for 2020 where you can replace 1 of the bottom teams - or even make it 11 teams (that would be cool)?! I don't think it would have all the snazzy stuff as say Motorsport Manager has but I expect it to be your team to customize, with you as 1 driver and say Weber or other as the other. Driver swaps and as long as you have the budget, you could trade for a real driver to partner you can or perhaps even swap teams yourself. This would put a greater emphasis on team goals and rivalries in a championship in order to get the max prize money to advance you team and add better drivers. Come on it's gotta be in there surely!!!

    Would you like the F3?

    Totally agree here. First they need to tidy the base game, then implement the use of F2 better for career. Then and only then would I accept having the extra content of F3 in there. There's no point adding content while not working on the current content making sure all bugs are corrected before adding on top of it. That's a recipe for disaster which is what they've been doing the last few years.

    Bad things in F1 2019

    What happened to number 3? Did that get deleted? Haha, joking 😂😂 From what I've seen and heard, agree with it all. Career has been a bore now since 2017 and had high hopes of this rivalry theme they've injected for this year BUT sadly it's so brief you blink and you miss it. There's no feeling of rivalry in this game apart from those 3 short challenges in F2. Get a story writer in. With this I don't mean have a career like the Journey in FIFA as you want to be able to play career over and over with different teams and not know how the story goes. But what I mean is get them to script how to show and make the player feel they're in a rivalry with another driver whether it's your teammate or any other driver or team as you progress through the season. You could start with a rivalry with your teammate, which goes in hand with a team rivalry against another similar places team. As you progress the season, you build another rivalry with another driver particularly if you are going for the championship or if doing badly, rivalry with risk of losing your seat to a test driver or F2 driver. Your team gets massive upgrades pushing you further up the field than your current rival team? Show the emotion and jubilation of building that gap between you and them as well as building a new rivalry with another team. There's just no emotion in the game!

    Fed up— rain and AI in the rain

    I do wonder if this is a factor for a lot of people saying they can't keep up with the AI in the wet. People these days make a setup to be purely for the fastest lap they can get in the dry and use this in their races expecting great handling, speed and smashing the AI. If people are doing this then your race strategy is way off. Your AI level is therefore not entirely correct causing you to be so much slower in the wet and if you used a more realistic race setup, for the dry you'd see you will also be a few levels down in difficulty. Also when intermittent weather comes, you're f****d! If you are playing realistically and using setups meant for the given conditions and still too slow, perhaps there is an issue, perhaps you're needing more practise, who knows. I feel a lot of peeps want to push themselves massively and are ego driven to be on the highest possible level rather than cater for their true skill and just have fun. Having said that I also believe there are some who are genuine and have issues.

    F1 2019 R and D

    Of course, let's give "massive thanks" to the company fixing something that should have been tested and fixed before release instead of just implemented without thought. That's definitely something to give them a pat on the back for, not! Where's the apology from them for the broken mechanics? Way to go Codies <sigh> 🤦 Can we stop thanking them for shoddy work please and thank them where it's actually due? I too though am intrigued to know if this is actually fixed so I will be waiting patiently, watching 👀

    Tyre life in qualifying programme

    Ah OK, thanks for clarifying. I misunderstood the patch fix then. Good way they've done it actually now you say this as it is good to understand in practice how the race wear will be but of course the qualy program is affected. Maybe they could put a fix in so that that program has 100% tyre life no matter race length so you can determine qualy time - OR fix the target time to show according to the scaled tyre wear per lap (I'd expect the target time to be like this across all programs tbh).

    Tyre life in qualifying programme

    I thought tyre wear scaling was fixed in a patch 2 patches ago? Either it should now show 100% distances in practice and qualy then scale accordingly for the race or should show the scaled distances in P & Q and should wear correctly i.e. 4 driven laps = 1 lap wear (25%) or 2 driven laps = 1 lap wear (50%) - should then resort to 1 driven lap = 1 lap wear for the race.

    Why F1 2019 career sucks

    Yep it is immensely stupid having Ferrari anywhere near the back runners. Would they ever accept that in F1? Never. The only way this would happen is if the rules changed to not suit Ferrari and let's face it, they'd sooner leave F1 than race last all the time. They'd moan their heads off until whatever rule that did not benefit them was abolished, lol. Ferrari should always be around the contenders for the title top 1-3. Anything below is a disgrace, haha.

    not change the front wing

    Yep I remember a Tiametmarduk video from the 2018 game with him saying he had to do the same. Another legacy bug not fixed! EDIT: I say it's a bug because although minimal damage, it still affects driveability of the car. 😱🤦

    No Online Championship on F1 2019

    It's just where you can set the AI for the league IIRC. There are 3 options there under the 1 AI setting.
  12. I get what you are trying to say here but I don't buy that as any excuse. 1) if you are going to sell a game at top price like the big companies it needs to be of similar or better quality - fact. Just because it's a new game and officially licensed doesn't mean it has to go AAA price even if the quality is poop. 2) The size of Codies makes no difference on them not being able to tidy the basics of the game up from year to year. Legacy bugs are still present. I mean if they sorted those out, it would already be a better game. Also if they can make the game with the components it has now, then there's no reason why they cannot make them with no bugs. What has caused these bugs is their decision making is rushed, not well thought out and generally poor testing which had it been thorough would've picked up these bugs and game breaking issues with features they've introduced. 3) I only accept the excuse they're smaller than the big companies if they could not implement certain features at all due to resource and budget. If they bring something into a game, this excuse then goes out the window if it fails or is bug-ridden; that's just bad coding, lack of testing and general incompetence. I'd be put on performance plans if it was me in my job but no doubt, it's just all overlooked in the gaming industry as the norm which is ludicrous!

    No Online Championship on F1 2019

    There's already an option in the league menu for the AI point scoring. The option allows AI to be present AND score, be present but DO NOT score and AI off.

    Career mode is now broken!

    Have you set the car up just for qualy? Have you considered setting the car up for a race during practice where a full tank of fuel will affect your car? Just wondering as I know a lot of peeps play/set the car up to drive the fastest possible without considering race implications.
