    Patch 6.5 notes

    As always, one step forward one step back. I just had the pleasure of a qualifying duel against a driver floating in mid air without a car. And to add to the confusion, in all sectors he was ahead of me, but I won the race despite having no brakes and losing about ten seconds in the gravel. This game needs to be transferred to a more competent team of developers because it's not showing any sign of significant improvement.
  2. Might as well get a heads up on this total nutcracker of a circuit. I don't know if drivers in the actual race feel like I do, but it's like that old footage of astronauts in a centrifuge. Modern cars are just not suited to this tight circuit. It's historic and it's picturesque, but it leaves no room for overtaking without one or both cars self destructing. It must have been lovely in the 1960's with a dazzling top speed of 100mph as Jack Brabham whizzed by the hotel balconies, but my head is totally spinning doing three laps. I do not anticipate placing high in the rankings. Thank you for your time. We will now resume normal transmission.
  3. Back in my day trawling for salmon off Nova Scotia we'd keel haul the lot of them for insubordination. And no rum for them. Aaaaarrrgghh!
  4. I don't know if anyone tried it, but it didn't give me any advantage. This used to be my favourite track....hitting the apexes (apii?) made for fast flowing laps, but now the speed humps on every corner will send you sideways. And with low steering and stability, hitting the last DRS zone causes wheelspin and you'll fishtail off course into the grass. I can't believe these are 'glitches' in coding. Somebody put them there because they weren't there before, so it's deliberate. But why? Again I wonder why the game doesn't follow F1 style racing. Imagine Lewis Hamilton fishtailing down a long straight because he opened up the rear wing on the DRS zone. It wouldn't happen, so why does it happen to us?

    Canada Race

    I wanted to do a few single lap races to fine tune my qualifying time but can't be bothered since after every lap I have to watch an ad.

    Update 6 feedback hub

    It does feel like hitting the apex of the corner is a punishable offence.

    car setup after U6

    All aero isn't best anymore. I've had to put more emphasis on handling to stop the car becoming airborne when crossing the ripple strips.

    Update 6 feedback hub

    Who asked for the bumpy surface? Has this ever been a request? I've been active on this forum since the start and nobody ever asked for a bumpy surface. Isn't this why staff monitor this section? For feedback from the end users? So many issues are raised week after week and with every update they are ignored. So what's the point of this forum? By now F1 Mobile should be near perfect, yet it continues to find new ways to create more annoying problems almost in spite of our observations and recommendations. We keep telling you how the game can be improved, but you treat us with disdain. I feel like a lab rat. Actually Pavlovs dog is more appropriate because I keep thinking that when you ring the bell announcing the next fix, I salivate in anticipation, but there is nothing there. Each time we get nothing.

    No grip after update

    So far, no substantial improvement. Bug still in America qualifying. Lead car has a 5 second lead at start. Using high handling setup, car won't stay on the track. Won't brake. Why are we so far along in this game and things that we report here time and time again just don't get fixed? Okay, you've been busy fixing the cars graphics. Yay. How about Spielberg's scenery? It been rubbish from day 1. Just what are the staff spending their days doing?

    Paul Ricard circuit update - now live

    I was going to mention that but I though I was pressing it hard enough. Then the screen cracked and I figured I was pressing hard enough.

    F1 Live Ghost Racing in a future update?

    No Fierce you're not missing anything. Car control is maybe the worst I've every experienced. The back end fishtails like... like a fish! Reminds me of when I'd get bored with my slotcars and we'd oil the corners. But I was young and it was time I gave toys away and started drinking heavily.

    F1 Live Ghost Racing in a future update?

    Incorporate what exactly? I just downloaded it and before finishing a lap deleted it. It's so bad I suddenly have new respect for F1 Mobile.

    French GP

    It's race time again and F1 Mobile presents us with the only interesting challenge contained in the game. This time it's Paul Ricard. Personally I would rather race at Roland Garros, Inspector Cousteau or even Circuit Touche Turtle. I find the lack of any kind of visual markers to be a great detractor. Everywhere, on every part of the track it is blue stripes, red stripes with nothing like a tree or a building to use as a visual guide to your whereabouts. Even the spectators in the stands it seems are half a kilometre away across those seas of blue stripes and red stripes. And speaking of the red stripes and the blue stripes, they oil them. Perhaps in leftover garlic butter from escargot? Or should I say Escargots à la Bourguignonne? One wheel on those and you'll swiftly arrive in Belgium in a different time zone where the race ended three hours ago. Ce La Vie, I say! Enjoy racing this the most dire and visually unexciting circuit on the calendar.

    Canada pole time is ludicrous

    Also ridiculous is Vettel got pole position with. 1:10 lap. An officially endorsed F1 game should be a more accurate representation of this.

    Canada pole time is ludicrous

    Number 1 rank at the moment is a 1 minute flat. I can't get close to a 1:04 so how you could shave 4 seconds of PGIII's time is baffling.

    Canada GP

    Moving up through the pack without touching someone is almost impossible. Even cautious driving, braking early can result in touching a car and you can't afford to lose those seconds. Again, no degree of subtlety from devs. If you rammed the back of a car, then a penalty should apply, but slight contact? It's unreasonable.

    Canada Race

    I snuck in to Codemasters HQ and got this shot of their server.

    Did you have a cloud backup? Do you login using Game Center?

    Tool for calculating setups.

    I still remain doubtful of the efficacy of anything that resembles an "ideal setup".... with the benefit of months of gameplay trying different configurations, any differences are indiscernible. Now that we can run three different set ups and I have my three in the most opposing forms.... Power, Handling and Aero... all indications are that Aero is always going to yield the best results. I have never found a track where sheer, brute power is an advantage.

    June 6 patch notes

    Always one to live in naive hopefulness, I launched the game and got a Singapore grid start. Waited for opponent. No surprises there. Waited a bit longer. A bit longer. After five minutes, I was thinking of the Rocky Horror Song "Time Warp"....it's just a step to the front, then two steps to the back" Well, after an hours play, I've racked up 10 straight losses. So, have you done anything to improve my experience? That's a no from me. I'll be stopping play again, until something occurs to make this enjoyable. In fact after a long lay-off I downloaded my old favourite RR3 and doing 10 laps of Lemans in an LMP1 car, weaving through back markers, choosing your overtaking points and knowing the your opponents weren't going to ram you off the track was an absolute delight compared to this underdeveloped game. Also to note. Why am I only ever racing number 22 Bots? Is it my time zone? I know the rest of the world is asleep, so why should I never compete against real players? And bots never make mistakes. I've never been behind one and it cuts a corner.

    Lack of interest

    There seems to be a sizeable drop off in the number and frequency of users visiting this forum. I wonder if it is indicative of players removing themselves actively from the game or is it a case of "posting complaints here is pointless" so why bother?

    Latest patch status

    I feel for you Chris. You're the Sarah Sanders of Codemasters. Putting a positive spin on everything must be challenging, so take it easy, it's just a game after all.
  23. Please feel free to lodge a complaint. I'm sick of this place and everybody associated with it. It's a **** game and all anybody does is moan about it.

      If you're sick of this place, you maybe should stop being here?

  24. You are applying logic to the operational aspects of this game. This approach will return erroneous assumptions that do not apply to any and or all specific outcomes based on the algorithms outlined in the contract as per the schedule of events when calculated to be equal or greater than the lesser amassed amount of points per event per competitor and as such any actual results are null and void. I thought everyone knew that.
