    This is the worst GRID so far.

    I was doing other work. ๐Ÿ™‚ I like the idea, to be honest, but it's worth remembering that we are just over one month since GRID's launch, and haven't even began rolling out post-launch content (really soon, honest). My focus remains on working with players and the studio to improve the existing game, before looking into the future. Let's keep walking before we try to run. Thank you for the suggestion

    Should've appeared as Read before I took a look to check earlier - may've hovered over it at first and not marked as read, I dunno. Text chat was discussed pre-launch because of your message and doesn't sound like an easy implementation. Spectator mode is usable once you are no longer racing in a live multiplayer event and I wouldn't be surprised if we saw that expanded/tweaked as we look towards esports events. No guarantees though. Either way, suggesting I don't listen to players because you're not sure if I read a message of yours from July, even though I'm on here nearly every working day talking to you, is a strange one, in my opinion.

    Your text, from July, was read and the points passed through to the studio. Announcing things that are not true, nor not possible at this stage, would not be a positive step, in my opinion.

    Quick Note on Career Race Lengths

    I literally said the opposite of that. I said that the most-requested things from players are the highest priority (why wouldn't they be), but that doesn't mean we abandon other requests - some of which are simpler to put into action. I'll say it for the final time: No time or attention is being taken away from the most-requested things from players.

    Quick Note on Career Race Lengths

    Your comment was deleted because it broke the Forums' Terms of Service. This one doesn't ๐Ÿ™‚ This wasn't the priority change above more-reported topics, such as Multiplayer requests. It was a player-reported topic that requires less workload or resources to test and potentially change for good, if the players enjoy it. Therefore, we're able to make a decision on it quicker and start communicating about it, whilst other key topics are still in discussion. Feel free to DM me if this needs a further explanation ๐Ÿ™‚ We're not taking away time or attention from the other things that've been asked for to make this happen. Chill.
  6. Hey ๐Ÿ™‚ Cool, thank you for this - I'll put this one forward to the studio and see what their thoughts are on the potential of an Endurance-type mode on consoles, that fits within the game's capabilities. My assumption is that this has been considered but isn't possible, or would take too much resources away from keeping the core of the game and our post-launch content on schedule. But it's wrong to assume! So I'll run this by them ๐Ÿ™‚

    Quick Note on Career Race Lengths

    Hey all, Just received some news from the GRID team that I wanted to pass on regarding Career mode: Amongst all the community-reported feedback I've been passing on is the request to include the option to adjust the race length in Career mode races. I emphasised that this is a regular request from players and a suggested priority for us, and the studio are laying out plans to try and implement this ๐Ÿ™‚ Currently, we're aiming to begin this process from Season 2 of GRID's post-launch content, which is pencilled in for early next year. At this point, we'll begin with a trial of the new race length adjustment option in Career on PC only. This is to check the performance of the feature out in the wild, and to gauge the feedback from you, the players. If all is successful, we'll look to expand the option out to other platforms. Obviously changes like this take time, resources and testing, hence why it's not an immediate addition, but I'm looking forward to this process kicking off to see what you think. Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

    GRID stability patch for Xbox One and PS4 now rolling out

    Next patch will line up with the Season 1 content drop, of which more news is imminent. Expect news on that early next week ๐Ÿ™‚
  9. Thanks for the @ ๐Ÿ™‚ As announced this week and in previous media interviews, Endurance is a mode that only features on Stadia because the requirements of that mode, within this game, with the current console and PC requirements, isn't possible. I'm not part of the development team or a programmer so don't know the inner workings of this, but that's the information I have. A few weeks ago, before we announced the news on Endurance, I had a walkthrough of GRID on Stadia and actually asked the team this exact question ๐Ÿ˜„ The answer was the same - it's something we'd love to have on all platforms, but it's only possible on Stadia and was never initially intended/built for other platforms.

    Not shifting into gear

    Hey all, thanks for reporting this - I'll be talking to the GRID team about it ๐Ÿ™‚ For us to investigate further we'll need more details, such as those mentioned in the our pinned thread: Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Error mesagge -GRID 2019

    Great to hear - as we always suggest, updating all hardware/software is recommended before jumping in. The recent PC patch directly addressed stability issues, meaning instances of crashes and freezes have been heavily reduced. If you're still experiencing this, crash reports are always handy, to allow to see any potential trends and centre in on things we can do to improve the situation. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

    Skill is their overall ability and how likely teammates are to finish high up the order. Loyalty is how likely they are to accept your instructions, when you ask your Race Engineer to tell them to attack/defend ๐Ÿ™‚

    The teammates become more competitive the further you progress - the option to hire and fire teammates is in the Profile menu ๐Ÿ™‚ Technique and Bravery are a couple of the categories that Racecraft XP is broken down into - overtakes and overall speed, for example, would fall under Bravery. It's all part of the XP system that enables you to level up ๐Ÿ™‚

    As well as PJ's points above, you unlock more competitive teammates to hire and use in Career as you level up ๐Ÿ™‚
