  1. Hey team, We’ve recently been making some necessary tweaks to the Season Championship mode, and wanted to keep you in the loop on what’s changing and why. Here’s a breakdown of what’s taking place: Why have I been demoted to a lower tier? When the 2019 Season Championship leaderboard was first introduced in F1® Mobile Racing with the release of Update 5, the aim was to give mid-season and end-of-season rewards to all players. But more than anything, we wanted to create a challenge with high stakes for the most competitive players. This resulted in the introduction of Gold, Silver and Bronze tiers: - No matter how many GP Events you have completed, you are positioned in one of the Bronze tiers and would receive rewards regardless of your tier, even if you completed only one GP Event. - For those who wish to compete for the title of the best F1® Mobile Racing driver, we initially decided to reserve the Gold tier for the top 1% players and the Silver tiers for the players ranked between the top 2% and 6%. However, since then there has been some balancing to do. Some players who haven’t played all the available GP Events at the time would be ranked in the same tier as the players who played all the available GP Events and tried their hardest to be among the top players. For that reason, we have decided to limit the Gold and Silver tiers to a limited number of players before the end of the 2019 season instead of using a percentage number of players. Unfortunately, due to technical issues, this modification was implemented in the game sooner than expected and some players who should have remained in their tier have been demoted to a lower one. Consequently, players who were ranked in the Gold tier when we limited this tier to the top 1% players; they may have been demoted to a lower tier since there are fewer players in this tier now that this modification has been implemented. The same applies for the other tiers. Why did I receive rewards from an upper tier? To ensure that all the players receive what they were supposed to receive initially, mid-season rewards are distributed as per the previous thresholds, instead of the new ones. The previous thresholds are as following: - Gold: 0% - 1% - Silver I: 1% - 2% - Silver II: 2% - 3% - Silver III: 3% - 4% - Bronze I-VI: 4% - 100% As a result, some players placed in the top of the Silver tiers received the Gold tier. This is just an example but it is also true for all the other tiers; some players who are in a Bronze tier actually received the Silver tier rewards. Basically, even if you have been moved to a lower tier, you still should have received the correct rewards. All changes made have been to ensure fairness and balance in GP Events, so that fast and consistent racers get the deserved rewards. The level of competition in GP Events has been intense and incredible – and we can’t wait to see you compete even more for those end-of-season rewards!

    Career Mode Deep Dive

    Yes. As mentioned, the damage system is something we're refining and finalising as we speak, so the final version isn't shown in work-in-progress gameplay. We know damage is a big part of GRID, so we're working hard on it 🙂

    Soon! Not immediately, but soon 😉 We've got plenty to talk about and multiplayer is a big part of that, so don't worry - plenty of details to come

    Photo Mode

    Hey! So: - Whilst there's no specific photo mode in GRID on launch, the replay system is designed to give you chances to snap all manner of great photos, in the same DiRT Rally 2.0 allows you to do it. Post-launch, we'll assess player feedback and see if a specific Photo Mode is doable and/or worthwhile 👍 - Flashback: yes, the Flashback system is in GRID to help you erase any mistakes 😉
  7. ICYMI: We released some brand new GRID gameplay yesterday... *insert eyes emoji here* Get a first look at Havana, AND a first look at the IMSA Prototypes we're excited to bring to GRID. It's a great example of how GRID gives you the variety and choice to create incredible racing scenarios - like taking IMSA monsters around a fictional street circuit Myself and Game Director Chris Smith are also on hand to dive into a few more of GRID's key features, like Teammates, Rivals and Nemesis. Enjoy!

    Not enough real life tracks in the new game

    A fictional purpose-built race circuit in GRID? Hmmm... Keep an eye on our channels 😉

    Which circuits would like to see added? Always feel free to let us know your thoughts, as they are passed onto the team for consideration. Can confirm: the current slate of post-launch content for GRID includes new circuits, added to the game for free, and there is at least one real-life circuit in that line-up!

    What i want to see in GRID !

    There will be no 'get money faster' system or microtransactions to boost progression. And yes, there will be free cars and circuits added to the game post-launch. 🙂
