    Reporter questions

    That's why I restarted my career without butler and weber. Near the end of season 1 I lost all interest in those drivers so yes the questions got irrelevant fast even in season 1. If you play without the F2 characters I noticed you get way less interviews. Claire probably doesn't have much questions to ask besides the rival questions.
  2. it's probably based on the target objective. Every team has target objectives. Fail them and get sacked.

    F12019 - Next patch wishes

    These are wishes for a patch? Sounds like the wishlist for next year's game. I don't want to dash your hopes but most of these wishes are not going to come in a patch.
  4. I don't like F1 2019 all that much. The game starts out good but it becomes very fast too familiar. The problem with Codemasters F1 series is that it's always evolutionary. Something good get's added, it get's improved and improved but it feels like you are playing the same game each year. To me F1 2019 does not feel like a game anymore, it feels like repetitive work that you have been doing for years. It makes me feel like retiring from F1. I'm too old for this, maybe I should go look for an Indycar game like F1 world champions tend to do in real life when becoming bored with F1. It started out good actually, it started like no F1 game ever started, it started with a story and the story was not dull what surprised me. I would have appreciated F1 2019 much more if there was a massive change in career and the story would have continued in season 1. I would not have minded being not able to drive full length races but get scenario's in season 1 instead. Just adding two fictional characters to F1 career and adding some generic mails did not keep the story alive. After half a season I didn't care for the two fictional drivers anymore so I restarted career without F2 feeder series and then it struck me that I'm doing the same thing for a few years now. The biggest problem with suggesting to flesh out the story in F1 2020 is that we will get F1 2019 with just some more cutscenes so I'm not gonna suggest it. What I want to suggest is: do something really different. Surprise us with total new gameplay. Start from scratch again.

    Do something different next year.

    Fernando won't have anything to do for 2020 so yeah why not the F1 Alonso edition. A career path where R&D is a struggle and instead of bringing you to the front of the grid you end up in the back.

    Mildly disappointed with Career Mode in F1 2019

    What he means is that your avatar is the same over the entire game. Let's say he wants to play a career as himself and one as Schumacher he will not be able to switch back and forth between careers. When he changes the avatar to Schumacher he will be Schumacher in all other careers.

    Do something different next year.

    I'm not sure if it is. The best example is driver transfers. It's the most asked feature and now we have it and it sucks. The problem I see with user ideas is that they focus on a detail without looking at the entire picture and it just makes it easy for Codemasters: Just tack an idea from the forum on the previous game and everybody's happy. F1 2019 is a bit too much F1, the user idea edition. A lot of user ideas that sound great on paper just kill it for me. I have so many ideas on how driver transfers should work but I clearly have no idea on how many resources it takes for Codemasters to implement them. I'm sure Codemasters themselves actually know even better than us how the driver transfers should work but they clearly don't have the resources to implement them like they should be implemented. Two years of development and a bigger team was used to create F1 2019 and still there's a lot that seems to have been rushed in to the game to get it out on time. Maybe this is a good user idea: get an even bigger team?

    If you haven't played an F1 game since 2013 I guess F1 2019 will blow your mind. If you haven't played 2017 or 2018 this is the best F1 game ever. But when you bought every version (except the one that was not on PS4 whilst every other game came out on PS4) the game get's old quickly. I have to agree with people saying it's hard to see that 2 years of development or actually I would have to say that I'm beginning to understand that 2 years was not enough. When the game was not out yet it was already obvious the F1 part was pretty much the same. The announcement of driver transfers sounded fenomenaal but it's also clear why it was revealed so late, It's work in progress

    I don't like soccer so why would I play Fifa I'm an F1 nut so I felt immediately invested in the story. But the journey from what I here is very good if you like Fifa games.

    Nonsense AI R&D developments

    It depends on how you start career. I started a career with Mercedes and R&D is not going that fast as in the smaller teams. When I started with Toro Rosso I immediately got bonus perks which make R&D way faster to develop from the start of the season. In the Mercedes I have no perks from the start, got some after Baku now but I'm now in Canada and have only done a lot of R&D in durability but almost none on the other parts. Ferrari and RB are not developing as well or are also investing in durability. The midfield is creeping closer but the development seems to be rather realistic.

    Please stop driver transfer in career mode

    Ideally the driver AI each get sets some career paths that seem logical. Younger drivers have more career paths than older drivers and give drivers a retire age. I would love to see F2 drivers eventually move to F1 trough the Toro Rosso team but like it is implemented now best not add F2 drivers or you would end your first season in F1 with only F2 drivers.

    Lighting Volt Haas F1 Team

    The joke continues; Just as I was about to set up a new career with Haas the sponsor changes his name to Lighting Volt. 🤧 And believe it or not but this ad is real so I think we will see some more name changes coming soon.
  13. BelgiumDude

    Lighting Volt Haas F1 Team

    Yes the ad is for a real energy drink from Steven Seagal. After the debacle with the Rich logo I guess we are going the same direction with the new name. It's Steven Seagal, where else is he going to make money?

    F1 2020 Holland edition

    If you see the massive crowds of orange dressed supporters at a lot of circuits the past years I'm surprised Codemasters hasn't been going full in on Max mania. Why is there no Dutch localization? Next year Zandvoort will be in the game and a lot of Dutch people will wanna race that circuit in a Red Bull or whatever car Max ends up next year. Might I suggest a full orange cover and Dutch localization and if you are playing out of holland the majority of the supporters in the stands is dressed in orange. My fellow neighbors go crazy on everything that has the color orange and can't resist to buy it.

    F2 and Devon Butler in F1 2019

    But you want to outdo Butler in season 1. I started my career in Toro Rosso moved mid season to Red Bull finished 2nd in the championship whilst Butler was struggling in the back with almost no points. I did not get my cutscene were I get to confront him with his speech on how I would fair in F1. All I got was a trophy.

    Feedback and ideas for F1 2020

    Sure until the season of 2020 starts and some teams get other liveries and you want to race in the new car and when it's Zandvoort GP you feel bad because you can't race it. Nah I want F1 2020, where can I pre order?

    Please delay the launch

    I just read a preview on a Dutch website about Grid and they could not belief that it was a Codemasters game because of the serious amounts of bugs in the game this close to release. For those who want to make sarcastic jokes about bugs, this sounds like a total other dimension of bugfest. The writer knows the codemasters games, loves the codemasters games and so is aware that Codemasters never launches bug free games. Translated with Google translated:

    F1 2020 Holland edition

    So it's not just me? I really thought I was being a jealous Belgian when I said to a Dutch guy I was more surprised about the Honda engine than Max his performance in Austria. which was met with much disbelief. I don't get Max Mania and I live in the country next to you so I'm used to seeing the "orange army" in full effect on a lot of occasions but Max Mania is so weird because people spend lot's of money on Max Mania. I also wonder where all those Dutch F1 fans were before Max came to F1.

    F2 and Devon Butler in F1 2019

    It's a missed opportunity. Going in to career I was also intrigued by the Butler character but as there are no further interactions in F1 they soon feel out of place in F1. I restarted the career after my first season to play career without the Butler and Weber. I hope next year they flesh out the story mode into F1. I seem to enjoy a story driven career mode in a race game. Formula 1 seems to be the perfect fit for such a story driven race game.

    A race engineer named Kees and a trophy "sodemieter op Kees"? No?

    F1 2020 Holland edition

    "Max this, Max there, ..." It's all Max. The most annoying ones I've seen so far are those two old muppets from RTL, I think it's called slip stream. Those two I would suggest for the commentary in game.

    What do you suggest? Slow down T-cam drivers?

    Scuderia Ferrari MISSION WINNOW Livery!!!!

    If EA would have the license you probably would get 3 tracks and a spec car for €60. All teams would have to be bought separately and career would be a season pass. All joking aside it depends where you are located with Fifa which sponsors you get to see. If alcohol sponsors are forbidden or a law that forbids alcohol sponsoring to minors in your country you don't get to see them. It's just a very clever way to get the maximum out of sponsorship. I'm glad codemasters isn't putting all their resources in to getting as much sponsors on my screen instead of developing a good race game.

    Wheel vs. Controller Ps4

    The best way to prove this is I guess is by setting a faster lap yourself with a pad.
