    Lack of interest

    same here, I haven't raced in over 2 weeks; even skipped the Monaco event. Maybe if there is a new release I might five it another try, otherwise maybe F1 2019 on a console or something.

    Totally agree, I posted something similar a few days ago: And since then I haven't found any new motivation. No way I'm participating in the Monaco event, and I can't bring myself to do more duels lately. I guess it's over; oh well, the same holds for any other game; at some point you've basically beaten the game and it is time to move on. I'm not 100% at that point yet but getting close.

    Post Update 5 Topics to Address

    I often have this as well and I am on Android. I get the impression that this is when your opponent DNFs, or is so far behind that you have already closed the results screen before the final times for the opponent have been shown. I might be wrong, but all of the times I noticed a best time not being recorded it was one of these two scenarios. Looking at your screendump, I do not see a color for the final sector (top-right) and your opponent is really far behind, he/she probably DNF-ed so that could be the reason.

    What's left?

    Yes! I managed the "learn to fly" suggestion. Also got another gold in the Spain event (currently in first place in my league). I am really wondering whether or not I want to train for the absolute most awful track on the calendar (Monaco).

    Spain Grand Prix

    Probably they have one sector recorded as 0 seconds. This happened in a number of previous events also but apparently has not been fixed. Or they found another way of cheating. Hopefully those times will be deleted as they have been in previous events. I get to about 1:09 with full aero.
  6. This is the third event in a row where some people get a free sector. For the Spain event, people are getting times below 1 minute. Totally impossible. Why does this keep happening? Can this be solved once and for all? This takes the fun out of events, and that is just about the last thing that is fun in the game at the moment.

    What's left?

    I've been playing this game for a while and spent a lot (too much?) time playing it. As I am goal oriented, playing without a goal seems pointless. So while playing the game I set myself a number of goals. However, it seems like I've done all I set out to do so I am wondering what is left. My goals: reach the maximum score of 9999 (done, a few times) drive more than 10K races (done, almost at 12K now) drive around the world (done, well almost, just a few more kilometers) get to the maximum "player rank" (done, when this was added somehow I was only at 21 but got to 25 pretty quickly) perform well in events (done, 7 events gold, 1 event I could not race so I only got silver) become good enough to beat most other players (done, I can get to 9999 pretty easily, and after throwing away all my cup points got back to league 1 winning all races I did not crash in) reach a safety rating of 5.0 (done, but impossible to stay there) see what playing at a really low safety rating is like (done, less fun that at higher SR ratings) beat the real-world track record on all tracks (done, but that is not really that hard) see how far you can get with a PI 0 car (I got to about 1700, after that it was no longer enjoyable) reach 100K Research Points (almost there, but that's a pretty useless goal as there is virtually nothing left to spend them on) I don't see another goal to strive for. At the higher cup points levels (about 7000+ or so) there are still quite a few players that are a lot better than I am, but I don't really care, as I can still get to 9999 if I want to. And now I can even pay for stuff: redo events (why? I get gold in them anyway) get more research slots (why? I am beating enough players with the car that I have) get an extra daily box (see previous point) get a choice of Epic parts (see previous 2 points) get a gold car (kind of nice but does not really offer anything special either) I really can't think of anything else to do in the game. Now if I could get a real season/career mode as was available in F1 2016 that might be interesting, but I don't see that happening any time soon. So I am wondering, what keeps others motivated to keep playing? I really hope for some great suggestions, otherwise I will probably participate in the Spain event this weekend, but stop playing afterwards.
  8. oops, "Eden", sorry 🙂 Was playing another game just now hence the "Epic" in my mind I guess.
  9. bots not as in "cheaters driving automatically" but as in "AI opponents that Codemasters/Epic inserts sometimes". So, you are driving against an AI, not against someone cheating. I find that when I get into a lower league, say league 5 or 6, I often get these "bots" but not so much in league 1. It probably has something to do with a suitable opponent not being available at a certain time so you get to play an AI instead of being told "well, we have nobody so go away".

    New Azerbaijan event

    @ChrisGrovesMCM Chris, I assume you guys/gals will fix this problem, but it will be after the event ends. How are your going to make sure that us (Android?) users that could not participate because of a hanging loading screen get another chance? And no, paying 50 credits to "redo" the event is not a good solution, neither is having to redo the qualification. I spent too much time getting a reasonable qualification time to do that again on one of the most awful tracks on the calendar.
  11. this is probably related to muliple researches at the same time. I had one slot finished and tried to start the next one before opening -> error message as shown above. I tried a few times, with even a phone reboot in between with the same results. I then first opened the box, and afterwards started the new research -> worked fine. So I guess in addition to not being able to enter the race in Baku, we have another bug related to research. Can I volunteer to be a beta-tester for the next release to help avoid issues like these? Oh well, or just do the common-sense thing and do not release right before the weekend, you know that time of week when people have leisure time to play but also the time that the developers take a well deserved rest?

    New Azerbaijan event

    same here, stuck at loading at the same point as both of you. I will try again in a few hours. Great idea, realeasing a new major update just before the weekend (not).

    Well, that´s it for me I guess

    I don't like it either (so far). Especially since everything regarding handling changed. Plus, I cannot even get to within 4-5 seconds of my track records on most tracks. I guess the cars changed, but would it be possible to (optionally?) remove the track records as they seem impossible to beat and that is not very motivating? One thing I do like is that you now get a bit more credits per 3-hour window, up to 4 from 2. Then again, it used to be even better (5 per 2 hours I think).
  14. ok, this is impossible: I can see a time a bit below the rest, but about 30 seconds faster? No way. Can this score be deleted?

    Paid cars vs custom cars

    I agree with Xoloth. I tried the same thing, bought the Merc and then did some races. I broke my own personal records in almost all qualifying duels and the car feels a lot different. The only disadvantage is it does tend to break out at the rear sometimes, and that has never happened to me with the standard (custom) car. Now I understand why I got beaten a lot more often in duels when my opponent drove in a merc.
