  1. Am I the only person who is finding myself back in my usual place of 12th by the time I reach the first corner? It's back to hitting the quit button rather than waste time driving around in last place.

    But what's your best lap time?

    Did you know Daniel Ricciardo's nose has its own helmet?

    No, I'm not practising like crazy because, what for? Now about your question. Can you be more specific about "I'm having 12 to 13 seconds to my final time?" Are you having 12 to 13 seconds added per lap? Are you having 12 to 13 seconds added over the course of three laps? Maybe you are having 12 to 13 seconds deducted? You didn't really make it clear.
  5. Hi Chris, In spite of my seemingly endless unhappiness with the game lately, I must admit it does give me pleasure and I'm banking on the forthcoming update to resolve a lot of problems that have been aired on this forum. However one thing still concerns me and it revolves around the games long term goals or to put it another way, it's overall longevity. Why should we keep playing? I have reached 9,999. I have a enough parts for my car to be very powerful and when Events end it's back to the monotony of single lap races. Why is there no mode in which we can compete in an F1 type competition? You are, after all, the only "official" game representing the sport, yet you don't have any long form races or a Championship mode mirroring the sport you represent. Progressing through the Leagues is fine, but why is League 1, the ceiling? Where are the challenges for those of us who have put the time (and money) into reaching the top? Is there any kind of proposed development underway to expand the game in the areas I suggested, or indeed in any new areas? Cheers, Slayton

    Sprint and Qualifying

    Grid starts are back to impossible. Sprints are suddenly harder due to the issue mentioned above. The only way to collect trophies in is qualifying duels. What has this game become??

    Sprint and Qualifying

    A review of the starting procedure for these two game modes must be made. A Sprint race at Bahrain sees my opponent cross the start line at a greater speed than myself with an almost one second lead by which time he has joined the the pack of bots as I am overtaken by cars behind me. Yet, on other tracks it is the opposite. Which is great for me, but that's not how I want to win. Is it too hard for each car to cross the start line together at the same speed? Same with ghost car qualifying. And please fix Mexico with the 11 car overlay.

    Sprint and Qualifying

    It's just happened again and I don't know why this should be part of the game. I had a good lead over my opponemt and was taken out by AI. Why??? I'm not racing them!!!! Why are "they" racing "me?" God this game is the most ****** up thing I've ever come across. If version 4 does not solve a thousand or so user concerns, I'm done. I'm sick of wasting my time and money.

    Sprint and Qualifying

    Sprint races. Let's get this straight. Your aim in a Sprint race is to beat your opponent and your opponent only. That's all that matters to get a win. So why are bots determined to get between you and the car you are competing with? You stand a good chance of catching him until an attempt to pass a bot gives you an engine penalty. Or try late braking to gain a position, but get forced off track and get a corner cut penalty. Who thinks of these things? If the aim of a Sprint race is a one-on-one with another car, why are there cars that do nothing but impede the aim of this game mode?

    Duel mode opponents are not real players

    I'd never get a race if I pulled out of racing against Player 22!

    SR Rating - How does it work?

    Mine can drop changing a decal.
  13. Dr Zaius

    What’s the game objective?

    I'd like to race to win, not come fifth one place ahead of my opponent. And on that subject.... Grid and Sprint races where the aim is to beat the opponent only (the other cars have nothing to do with the outcome) why are they there running into you, blocking you, giving you engine penalties.... You're not even racing them!!! Yet so many times when I'm beating my opponent, along comes an AI or two and ruins the race.

    SR Rating - How does it work?

    But it doesn't do anything anyway. My car is no different with zero safety or 5.

    Qualifying duels

    In qualifying opponents are ghosted. Sort of. But at a track like Baku with so many right and left turns you cannot jusge when to brake because all you can see is the 50% see through car in front.

    Least favourite track.

    Changed my mind. Monaco is ****. Too narrow. Cars are too fast for a single lane track with tight turns and concrete walls. The track is navigable without AI interference. They are on rails. How can we compete?? Real F1 tells us whoever is on pole will win because there's nowhere to overtake and when you're starting at P7 in a Grid, just give up. What is wrong with the word c for cat r for rabbit a for apple p for Peter? Is anyone offended? It's carp. Just invert the a and the r. Feck as Father Jack would say.

    Least favourite track.

    lately I have come to dread Frances Paul Ricard. One wheel on the painted surface is like hitting an oil slick. And the oddly placed DRS zone requires you to avoid the temptation to hit the button as it appears or you get no benefit.

    Overtaking not possible

    I was engaged in a Sprint race at Spa yesterday and had manipulated my way into 2nd place at the long last straight. The car in front was much slower than me so I decided I'd try and overtake, only to find the track isn't wide enough. I eased off deciding to settle for 2nd and was set upon by bots from the rear giving me engine penalties and eventually being shunted off the track. Another DNF. Anyone else come across sections of track that seem to be wide enough for one car only?

    Overtaking not possible

    And just to get this off my chest...... Grid F'n Starts. Despite having 9,000 trophies and a PI of nearly 1,500 I am always.... And I mean always the slowest car on the track. I can deal with being 12th by the first corner, but what is the point of trying to compete when you just watch the rest of the pack moving away at 3 seconds, then 5 seconds, then 8 seconds and your driving like mad to try and close the gap. You lose. You're a loser. The game is telling you, you're a loser. You don't stand a chance. You cannot compete. You are not good enough. No matter how much power your car has, no matter how good a driver you are..... YOU WILL LOSE!!!! Do you understand Chris Groves....????! These are the things you need to fix or your game has no future. It will die and whoever is accountable will have to explain why it didn't attract enough customers. Listen to us and maybe you'll succeed. Ignore us and failure is imminent.

    Race won, but lost?

    Did you say you're from America? You're too dry witted to be American.

    What’s the game objective?

    How interesting that a number of people and have read this but nobody bothered to answer. I'll answer. I haven't got a clue what the objective of the game is and I suspect nobody does. There is no plan in place to make it a realistic interpretation of F1 racing. Not now. It's too late to redesign it to be a whole new game. Other games have incorporated practice sessions, qualifying, and 50 lap races with pit stops, choices of eight grades of tire, wet or dry races, set-ups for speed or downforce and at the end you may be world champion. Look for it on the App Store. Monoposto. We are stuck with a card collecting game enticing us to spend money under the illusion our cars will go faster. But what for? What's the reward? When I started I thought something happened when I reached 9,999. Nothing happened. I just kept doing one lap races, over and over. And what happens when Events end? My guess is nothing will happen. And just now as if to remind me how long this tedious garbage will go on, I have saved 400 credits for the last week to buy a resource pack. What a waste! 1 rare part, 1 epic part and the rest all common. Didn't even get anything I could use to upgrade. This card collecting could go on for years.
