    Multiplayer Game points abuse continues unabated!

    Yeah, I know that , but my point is that the MS Admins have at their disposal the ability to apply penalty points (something they mentioned they have the ability to do for the Forza Multiplayer Lobbies) and I'm sure they've singled out my game-tag and are apply those penalties willy-nilly out of sheer spite. In the rear instance when they don't know that I'm on, the points system works as it should. I'm telling you that MS admins are the the culprits here. Can some look at my sessions via the database and see if the points that I've earned are the actual points and have not been tampered with post application? I have a couple of other videos to post when I get in today. Run some SQL man!

    USA - Circuit Of The Americas

    Absolutely! Every F1 track is unique in it's own right and each requires a different approach. Adjust your approach and viola, you're seeing the track in a whole new light. One way to learn a track is via time trials - an amazing learning tool in the game.

    I am not a rookie anymore

    What you're asking for is doable on a personal profile basis that will require data to be stored externally to the game, and that means more unnecessary work for an annual game. The game mirrors what actually happens in the real world, where individual skill is retained at the person level and each driver is required to port that skill into the new season. I don't think Codemasters cares much about your game-to-game career stats as much as they care about individual skill that's already tracked in-game annually.
  4. Video # 1) I started 8th, finished 7th and was ducked 3 points! Just look at the racers I'm ahead of! There should have been no point deduction here. Video #2) I started 7th, finished 5th and earned only 2 points - and look at the skill-set of the people I finished ahead!!! Can someone stop this game abuse on my points. It's the employees at Microsoft tasked with overseeing the multiplayer sessions that's up to this, as they have the ability to apply penalties at their discretion when warranted and in my case these penalties are NOT unwarranted! The have access to the copious database of driver stats and they monitor my gaming sessions primarily to harass my game. If these folks have nothing better to do, I'd like to get them a small cage with a couple of hens to tend to- that should keep their spare time occupied! In the odd moments when they're don't catch my sessions, I earn copious points. This is how I know someone is up to this! 5-29-2020_1-44-08_PM-swffnoep.mp4 5-29-2020_1-44-08_PM-e0rqoniy.mp4
  5. Will the XB1 disk version be made available for pre-order on Amazon USA, as I don't see it listed as yet. Also, please don't say that you'll make available only the digital version from the Microsoft Store! That will be most unacceptable, as I need the DISK!

    USA - Circuit Of The Americas

    One of the reasons that most don't appreciate this circuit, (and I notice also the same reaction in Forza Motorsport multiplayer lobbies where once the circuit is featured, most drop off) is that it's of a technical nature, as are most of the American racing circuits. The word technical really means "problem-solving" where you have a set of tools at your disposal that can be applied to solve a particular problem. Circuit of the Americas is a very technical F1 circuit because it is American. (If you play Forza Motorsport and race the likes of VIR, Laguna Sega, Road Atlanta, Lime Rock and Sonoma Raceway, you get the gist of what I'm saying). It is fast flowing, as in the first corner that directs you up-hill with an amazing blind left-hander into the start of the S's. And this first corner is just the the beginning of this awesome Tilke creation. What drivers need to appreciate this masterpiece of a circuit, is to reach deep down into their toolkit and devise way to problem solve this master race track. Only when you do that can you come to appreciate this very amazing circuit they say incorporates a piece of each of the major F1 circuits. Technical circuits require technical skills to overcome it, so solve it drivers! COTA rules!
  7. Now there is absolutely no reason that my points should have been negated in this instance. I started in eight position and passed two cars of a much higher skill rating than mines who both started in higher grid positions, as you can clearly see, so why was my score negated by about 20 points and I had a totally clean race, even passing Grid position 6 in the final lap due to a damaged wing? What the hell is going on here folks??!!!! This happened within the last 1/2 hour of this posting. ----------- In the second example, I started in position 10, finished 8th, beating out 3 drivers two of which are of a higher skill-set and get nicked for 5 points? Can some check the accuracy of this scoring as I feel my game sessions are being unfairly targeted for unwarranted point reductions by unscruplous game sessions admins on the Microsoft side!

  8. I think it was Black Sabbath who said, and I quote, "The Human race will never learn" from song "Back to Eden". Another reason maybe to have a ghosted multiplayer session!

    F1 2020 - Monaco gameplay

    Yes! Been waiting for this video to drop in celebration of the grandest race of the year this month! Nice demo car too!

    Can the formula 1 game have two versions?

    This is s question of existentialism, isn't it? Why don't we have two versions of ourselves? One that plays with a controller and on that doesn't?! 😂😂😂
  11. I started in 8th position and did not qualify and I get only 16 points when two of the four people I beat have a higher skill rating??? In # 2, you see I qualified 7th, finished 5th and from 1332 was ducked 8 points when one of the two people I beat had a higher skill rating and I had a clean race. Can someone look into this?! I don't think this is right. 5-17-2020_11-53-31_AM-yh10m554.mp4 points_negated.mp4

    F1® 2020 | First Gameplay Trailer

    So that answers that - F2 is back in the game. Yuk! If this is the case there is no reason all classic cars should not return, in addition to Schumacher's additions.

    Actual number of total weekly event finishers

    Ha ha, I started it yesterday and DNF due to an aggressive overtake move that caused a spin out - then I purposely smashed into a wall to tire tether the front right wheel - more times!

    Failures, Damage, and Physics

    Engine failures and the many ilks of it IMO should not exist in this game, as fiascoes and the likes would only disrupt game play when the intent of any game is continuous play. Recall this is still a game, and not an exact replica of the sport. What I'd like to see replicated more in the game is tire shedding and clag being picked up by tires providing more grip under certain conditions. Spend more time on tire/tarmac physics than on stoppage issues.

    So Dirt 5 is next gen but not F1 2020

    Being that this game will be released before the new Xbox, it makes sense not to optimize the game for a platform that does not yet exist.
