  1. A detailed description of the issue. People got held in the pits for no reason and it also caused people who retired to glitch out on the straight for some reason. Platform PC What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) Latest Ranked/Unranked/Leagues Unranked Wired or Wireless Connection? Wired The amount of players in your session? 18 Were you the host? No Did this issue happens for everyone in the session, just some people or just yourself? What did they see? It happened for anyone entering the pits at that time yes. We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again? No idea, unknown cause How do you make the problem happen? We don't know the cause. just that it probably got introduced in the last patch cause we hadn't seen this one before. Another one for the BUG BINGO though. Can you add a report code. How to find this is in Main Menu > Game Options > Settings > 16 digit code in the bottom left of the screen. Please make sure that this is the code from the session you had the issue in. Adding report codes from as many users in your session as possible would be really helpful here. I've been asking but people are getting tired of giving them to me all the while seeing more and more bugs get into the game... Video of the issue, including timestamps. Did you stream the session? https://clips.twitch.tv/PlainHonestAnacondaSoBayed Here's a clip, you can see it happening on the minimap (2 people are stuck there already. you can see people joining getting in the line) Here's a screenshot from the pitlane at that time:
  2. A detailed description of the issue. Br0wnie is stationary yet the game still thinks he's driving (look at the speed) and then explodes the tires right before it stops.

  3. We're 3 months into the life of a game that's barely, if at all, gonna live past its first birthday. My team is good enough it seems and chapeau for that. but the multiplayer is in a worse state than ever, and the lack of patches and updates is beyond comprehension. Every league I know of is already struggling to keep the disillusioned drivers aboard because despite promises suggesting otherwise, this game continues the trend of having more buggy MP than the last one. There's still countless issues from the spectator standpoint. (Startlights, leaderboard glitches, incorrect tire info, incorrectly outlined tires, still no penalties) But also as a driver there's just TOO MUCH that can go wrong and require a restart. Some examples: - Cars of disconnected people causing havok on the starts/restarts (Made worse by the fact that you cant take control BEFORE the start so there's always an ai car driving away as the lights go on and then being an unghosted obscacle. in the first lap.. with more chance of chaos as the driver tries to retake control (and there aren't even lights in my experience anymore so you better get your timing right) - Safety car still sometimes gives the instruction to overtake incorrectly and then DSQ'ing within a second after doing so (no time to slow down or something) - Safety car gets glitched out by the same bug thing that messes up the leaderboards in laps 2-3 requiring the field to overtake the s.c. sometimes etc. - Delta's are STILL unreliable. Especially on the start straight they not update/are wrong at the line. But people photofinishing behind can win, and sometimes both or NONE of 2 cars have drs..... - Screenfreezes as people join/leave sessions. - Penalties awarded by the game for things that we DONT want the game to give penalties for, cause the game OBVIOUSLY can't reliably give the correct penalties for those. we have stewards for that. - Tires in f2 being random so some people are unfairly stuck on the harder tire. - Entire lobbies glitching out because 1 driver's pc missed it's check/his game crashed. - Grip hack Cheaters (Although that's more of an open lobby/ranked issue.. in leagues they just get respectfully asked to move their folly elsewhere) - Ghosting needs to be reworked in general as it is unusable in either mode now (AI'ing disconnects should ALWAYS ghost.. even when ghosting is off) I can go on but I think my point is made. @BarryBL How is it possible that we have to wait so long for more updates? How does your statement that multiplayer is getting more attention this time around relate to the amount of updates and fixes we're seeing? Can you explain to me why not more effort is being put into testing and fixing these glaring bugs right now? We should be getting an update every 2 weeks the state this game is in. Just TRY stuff at least. it can barely be worse than it is now. The only meaningful updates that have come out so far in three (3!!!!) months are the hold button for ERS and the multiplayer car for time trial.. The first one after a huge "you think you do, but you don't" style turnaround from you guys. It was the first thing that came up in the beta and still took months. The bugs are still there. Just to compare. I sometimes play paradox games on the side. Recently CK3 was released, and just like with F1 2020, in pure Paradox fashion, it was very buggy at launch. This is where the comparison ends though. Because within a month of release, Paradox released patch 1.1. I want to invite you to have a look at the patch notes here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/threads/ck3-dev-diary-42-1-1-patch-notes.1428193/ Now those are patch notes. Written by a company that wants to fix their bugs. AND don't want to let their customers in the dark. They contain more text than all the text in all of the f1 games combined, and are just a blast to read for anyone who likes fixes 😉 How good would it be if we could get one of those for the f1 games once. Where you read, and read, and all the things that annoy you in one way or another, just got called out by name in text and FIXED. Those developer diaries in general are super enlightening. They have us get to know the developers. what they like about working on the game. aspects of it they find cool. I'd love to know them better and have explained to me why the priorities are so far away from a stable multiplayer. IMO it is stable multiplayer that will take the game around it's lifeyear in healthy fashion. it is what gets streamed the most, gives the most exposure for both f1 and your game in general. Right now mp is only making f1 2020 the laughing stock of online racing games, and multiple leagues are already discussing moving to ACC, DESPITE most of the communities being super f1 focussed. It's just not fun anymore. We've been lied to for too long. Nothing is changing. It's getting worse every year. We went from July until now without any meaningful updates to multiplayer stability. And although the driving itself is great and fun while it works, the continuous frustrations of having to restart way too many sessions, getting the screenfreezes whenever someone joins or leaves (0,2 sec stutter can easily be your quali gone) , and the streams looking trash half the time because the info on screen is not correct, just is too much for many people, myself included. I've just kinda lost hope now myself too. Seems like you're not really bothered about multiplayer after all. For people who only play multiplayer the amount of money that you dare to ask for the buggy mess that you get almost feels like theft. Especially considering the effort that obviously went into adding a microtransaction store to the game. Something that's not gonna be able to get used a lot if people stop playing your game very early on.. But hey, I must know nothing about it, and having even the most dedicated f1 fans stop playing your game within a few months because it's just too buggy is probably a very smart move that I just don't get.

    Can't accelerate under Safety Car

    I think that's because you can apply so little throttle when it's 'capped' that kinda doing the opposite to shortshifting counteracts it a bit. Problem still persists tho.
  5. Bicarda

    Can't accelerate under Safety Car

    It's a very old bug and the biggest cause seems to be overzealous handholding. It happens whether you're first or not (altho if you're first and close behind the safety car it gets more profound) It even happens to cars that are still catching up to the back of the train, and results in dangerous situations when suddenly you get throttle control back. I've made multiple posts about this in the past to no avail. Come on codies. This has no place in an f1 game especially for people not running assists. It's unfair sometimes. dangerous most of the time, and immersion-breaking all the time.

    Who invented the strict penalty system?

    It's amazing. Also how minimal corner cuts (tire on the line) almost always result in a warning, whereas if you stay off track longer, the game lets you get away with it. All because of some arbitrary "if you go faster than the ai during your time off track you get a warning' rule) Everybody who has seen f1 knows that people don't get penalties for that like, ever. (although they might have their laptime invalidated) Especially not while fighting wheel to wheel. Only if they Consistently cut/go wide on the same corner 3+ times the stewards are gonna start giving warning flags. They said so literally in last weeks grand prix. No f1 driver, ever, in the history of f1, has gotten a 3 second time penalty for crossing the while line by 1 millimeter, 3 times in a race, at different corners. A big help I think would be if that.. 3 warnings = a penalty system would only apply to the same corner. (and even.. side of the track at a specific corner) so nog going wide in turn 1 on lap 1, then some silly wheel to wheel action in lap 17 in turn 8 and then in the second to last lap slightly go wide somewhere else and THAT'S A 3 SECOND PENALTY FOR YOU. That's just not fun game design. Especially if we can't even see said penalties on stream.
  7. Just questions all ❤️ Very much interested in answers to all these questions.

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    Fair enough. I thought you were finding excuses for the game but if i was wrong in that i apologize.

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    I wasn't on about just the thing I quoted. You just start by openly wondering if it isn't their own fault which only serves to distract from the issue at hand. the state of the game. No other game I know of has any of the issues that this game has, and yet everything you say about other variables and whatnot goes for any other game as well. So as I see it, you're just trying to distract with a totally irrelevant discussion. Everything you say is true but it's NOT the reason why this game has 100x more problems than any other e-sport title.. or game in general. They had to change the weather to dry because the game isn't working They had to disable rejoining because the game isn't working The rpm glitch is still there. And that's just the things we saw from the heavily guided and censored stream. It's very clear that almost all the issues regarding online come from the lack of dedicated servers and dependancy on steam, combined with just some big flaws in the game that have become increasingly bad over the last years. This all after the BIG PRIORITY that online was said to be this year. And when someone points this out you start rambling about how hard making games is in general and how many things can go wrong turning this into a discussion that is completely off-topic.

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    The lengths you go through my man. Even the e-sporters are apparently allowed to say the game is 'not ready'. Not saying all you say is wrong or not true. but it's all beside the point.. the game IS in a horrible state and you pretending otherwise doesn't help anyone.
  11. Obviously. But the engine mode ban will probably stop us from changing the fuel any longer, removing another part of strategy from the game, So OP's suggestion, as has been suggested in the beta as well ever since the introduction of this oversimplified ers system, Is that we can MAP the ers before the race (as part of the setup) so we don't have to change it during the race but we can still (more realisticallly) adapt ers deployment to the track/sector and the rest of the setup. This brings more strategy into the game, promotes practicing/trying things and finding ways to get the most out of the car, as well as fix the issue with the barely charging ers on high downforce circuits. (That we can do nothing about under the current 'it iz what it iz' system, except for running suboptimal setups that work better with the ers)

    2020 F1 Esports Fail

    Well then still they could easily reconnected and continued driving. But they disabled that in the e-sports build because it is too glitched to behold, and the timings at the end would be wrong and they would have a 2 second fastest lap on rejoin most likely. Also, disconnect from steam (according to the game, steam is usually fine) happens without your internet cutting out as well. but they shouldn't be dependant on steams functioning in the first place. that and this p2p solution seems only good for messing around in open lobbies and not for any serious race.
  13. A detailed description of the issue. Below Platform PC What version of the game you are using (Shown on the start screen in the bottom left corner of the screen) Steam Ranked/Unranked/Leagues Unranked Wired or Wireless Connection? Mix The amount of players in your session? 16 Were you the host? no Did this issue happens for everyone in the session, just some people or just yourself? What did they see? read below We need to be able to make your problem happen internally so we can fix the issue. Can you make the problem happen again? I think it always happen to some extend. it's just not always obvious. How do you make the problem happen? By playing the game Can you add a report code. How to find this is in Main Menu > Game Options > Settings > 16 digit code in the bottom left of the screen. Please make sure that this is the code from the session you had the issue in. Adding report codes from as many users in your session as possible would be really helpful here. Below Video of the issue, including timestamps. Did you stream the session? https://clips.twitch.tv/ThankfulPlayfulEggplantYouDontSay 2:45 hours ago (19:00 UK) we had a league race where the end of the quali time was clearly desynced. Now we know this is always about a minute off for the streamers, which is 'not really' an issue for anyone else but them and potential viewers. (still needs fixing tho) Here, however, we have a clear example of drivers' session times being desynced as well. as in the video bellow you can see a haas driver (beevisx cross the line before the spectated car and get flagged as he does it. Yet the Williams driver can yet start his hotlap and gets a slow ai car in the way halfway through the lap. (Because the ai takes over as you get flagged, which doesn't have to be an issue if noone can start a hotlap behing you anymore anyway, But still unnescessary and the ai will keep driving indefinitely and waste tires until the actual race gets loaded) Here's the clip. https://clips.twitch.tv/ThankfulPlayfulEggplantYouDontSay Report codes from: Bica: RAPP-XDDD-XDGG-HRKG Rwaggy: CHTR-KVKC-CMEA-AMBG Kagan: HSRV-HXSR-TXCG-TRJE who were all partaking in this race. I hope this is fixed already in next weeks patch, and i think this is the same issue as the commentators time being desynced. (Which is to say,, they don't start at the same time) But otherwise hope it helps in narrowing down the issue.

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    So typical how they would post stuff on Twitter and then not answer that valid question everybody asks. Suddenly no one's home anymore. Personally, I don't care at all about myteam or relative bot performance. But it is abysmal that it took so long and even more so if it won't even affect myteam. Which is how I read it. it won't affect my team at all. Not in your current save nor your next. Let's hope at least they nailed the actual 'performance' fixes mainly in multiplayer.

    Performance Patch - MyTeam power units?

    It is rather badly worded if we can take such a wide range of meaning from just the one sentence
  16. Bicarda

    Performance Patch - MyTeam power units?

    The way I read it the changes won't effect myteam at all. "The Power Unit stats and prices remain unchanged in My Team, so as not to unfairly change the balance of your experience!" So I think now these changes will only be for grand prix mode. or ai online/in events and stuff.. And the Ferrari engine stats and prices won't be changed in myteam. for any of the teams. (cause they pick from the same stuff as you, and the team performances there are changing over time anyway)
  17. Bicarda

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    People can't read anymore. Cause everything is a video these days. But don't pin me on it maybe you guys are right and I'm wrong.. The way I read it is early next week. (Which might be monday but i guess they don't want to make promises and have us moan again)
  18. Bicarda

    Performance Patch - MyTeam power units?

    Omg this would be so hilarious... Want Ferrari to suck so bad? FINE! but only in grand prix mode 🤣 Could be they meant in ongoing saves.. but i think OP is right. and this update won't effect myteam at all. Welp. Equal cars is way more fun anyway.
  19. Bicarda

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    That's not what the article says.. It says it will come EARLY in the week starting the 19th. So not necessarily monday. i still hope tho.

    F2 in the rain is trash

    I think the f2's are great fun in this game and perfectly drivable without tc, And they're even more fun in the wet. You just have to be a bit more carefull with the gears. (shortshift.. but not TOO soon because the longer gears can really screw you then) They require a tiny bit more finesse but then they go slower so you have more time to react to stuff. overall I think they're a bit easier to drive than the f1 cars. They sound awesome. and are certainly a blast to drive. But yeah.. gear 1 is never usable really in general and gear 2 and 3 you want to get out of the way asap. Personally i shift as soon as i feel the slightest hint of wheelspin. although that 1 split second earlieir is better of course 😛 And general tip that's even more true in the f2's than in the f1's: Turn first.... straighten the wheel.. THEN accelerate. while keeping the wheel as straight as you can. these cars have huge torque and don't at all like accelerating while still turning. but while straightened out you can get away with almost anything
  21. Bicarda

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    they said 'first half of the month' (and that ship has sailed 😛 ) There is a small unspecified delay. But it will include more fixes than just team performance. personally, I hope for Monday. This got communicated in other threads.

    The Worst Things Jeff Says to You

    Start p2, halfway through lap 1: "okay we held position on the start..... that's not great but it's not terrible either" Like jeff is literally suggesting to people they make more dives on lap 1 or something After all these races.. he still thinks he needs to teach us how to do a race start.
  23. I know there's bigger fish to fry now and I don't at all want to distract you guys from making the multiplayer functional and stable, But one big improvement that you could make that shouldn't be too hard to implement, is give us the option to set the wing change in the pits to 'yes' by default. For me, there is almost never ever a moment where I don't want to change the wing when I have damage, how small the game might think it is. If you lose 5 tenths each lap that is already more than enough, and even the smallest amount of damage can cost you that easily. You don't want people with wing damage that are getting overtaken to be distracted as well by navigating the menu and putting that damn setting to yes, because the game might not think your light yellow wing worthy of repairing when you do pit, and it's incredibly frustrating when you forget, or think the damage surely has to be enough for the game to understand what you come in the pit for totally out of sync with the strategy. Personally i'd either want yes to be the default, or given the option to make it the default. if once in a blue moon the situation occurs that i DONT want my wing fixed during a stop (there are some tracks where in the rain i sometimes go faster with a bit of damage.. looking at you France) I'll happily go through the effort of making my weird strategy known to the game. The 'auto' option in my view is totally unnecessary and maybe fun for gamblers but not for people in the middle of a serious race. It would save a lot of frustration/extra busywork while driving in 99,99% of the cases, if they would just always change the wing if you came in with damage, unless told otherwise.

    And even there.. *cough* rpm glitch *cough's hysterically*

    Performance Patch coming soon?

    they must realize how much more bitcoins get sold if people actually keep playing the game tho. noone is that thick. I understand still too many people put up with this **** but this game could be 10x as popular if it actually functioned.
