  1. I’ll get this out of the way first: I have a 1:04 and therefore pole so this isn’t moaning because I can’t make it. However the 1:05 pole is further evidence of extremely poor design, as the only way you can hit the time is by driving straight through all the chicanes with no brakes. How is this the intended way to get pole position? As a mobile game, I don’t think we expect true realistic racing sim, but jeez CM you could have at least fixed the track so that you have to brake around the 2nd and 3rd chicanes, and adjusted the pole position time accordingly.

    The biggest problem in duels is the horrendous penalty system which is 50/50 at penalizing the right car. You'd get the same accuracy by just penalizing randomly. When is that going to be addressed?

    Recent AI tweaks - got any feedback?

    AI has definitely improved. Thanks
  4. Guess not cause they don’t play the game. Maybe you should tell them

    Tool for calculating setups.

    I think it's Eden that's the problem, but I don't know enough about post-release development in the gaming industry to say for sure.

    cool. Sprints are terribly broken - you don't cross the line at the same speed as your competitor so someone always has a 0.50 second advantage going into turn1. And don't even get me started on the Spa bug... Edit: It has occurred to me that the Sprints are supposed to start you off unevenly and judge you based on your lap time, but then why bother having us cross the line at the same time?
  7. Chris, a quick look at these forums and the Reddit forum shows how many issues people are having with the new update. It would be great to have some acknowledgement of which issues the dev team is aware of, which ones are actively being looked at, and what the fix ETA is. Personally, I’m unable to complete 3 laps of Baku without the game having a stuttering fit. I run ok for the most part but suddenly the game will have a quick hiccup and then the framerate will drop drastically and continue to get worse until it’s basically impossible to drive. That’s especially fun to deal with on a race like Baku where a ruined run is just one wall away and it can take ages to complete 3 decent laps. I have to shut down the app and restart it so that the framerate runs smoothly again. This was a problem in the last version but was very rare... now it’s much more frequent. Right now it’s preventing me from getting the season pass because I just don’t want to deal with the frustration.

    Yeah league dependent 1:05 for me got me 4th. Crummy but no patience to try to improve

    Upcoming Monaco Grand Prix

    Sorry guys, but you’re both incorrect. Monaco’s set to a very fast pole position (around 1:04 looks like) which sucks, but it’s not a dynamic pole as you guys think it is. Your grid position simply does not take into account others around the world. Sometimes they set it easier, sometimes harder. My guess is the only difference in difficulty of each pole is the incompetence of this coding team in standardizing.

    Sorry mate you have a fundamental misunderstanding of how qualifying works in this game. Your grid position has nothing to do with how others in the world are doing. You’re racing against a set time. Example, at Baku the qualifying time for grid position 3 was 1.37:50, for 2 it was 1.37:25, and for 1 it was 1.37. Doesn't matter if the world around you is posting 35 second lap times. It matters what the coders have set the grid times to.

    Maybe we're talking about two different things. I'm talking about pole position in qualifying. That hasn't proven to be difficult in any of the races. I believe it was 1:37 on Baku, for example. I'm not talking about placing in the top echelon against people who are clearly taking advantage of every exploit that each track has to offer.

    Upcoming Monaco Grand Prix

    Ha. I’m assuming 1st grid will be something like 1:08 or 1:09. Maybe I’m wrong. Generally if you drive a lap with no mistakes and take the corners well enough, you’re #1. 1:05 is very fast, doubt you’ll have an issue.

    Why do you presume to know the times for grid spots? its never been hard to qualify first, don’t know why it would be hard here
  14. PGIII

    Fix the racing line please

    Chris any word on this? Abu Dhabi for example is just a long red line throughout. Total mess. I know most of the corners but can't imagine how bad this is for newer players.

    May 21 Update

    Here’s a summary: - Changed Monaco (did nothing about how insanely bumpy it is, nor the chicane) - Broke racing line assist the end.
  16. I love this game. Maybe way too much. As of right now, I've spent a grand $ total of 1 VIP month on this game, and the only thing stopping me from spending more is that it's so clear that Eden/CM doesn't have anyone on its team that plays it. And if they do, that person has absolutely zero pull within the development team. I've fallen in/out of love with one other mobile game before - and eventually quit (after spending gobs of money) because it was clear that nobody on the dev team played the game and the bugs just kept piling up. Half of me wants to put a bug list together to help out, but I feel like it would just fall on deaf ears. Chris/Eden/CM: please consider the thought of having someone on the dev team get to level 25 and say 5,000 trophies. I'd be willing to bet that most of the annoying bugs would be fixed in 2 weeks and your revenues would jump significantly.
  17. It was free last night and now it’s back to 100
  18. My phone is running at 1000 degrees after 3 duels, and the framerate is horrible suddenly. cant wait to try to get through 4 events this weekend... iOS though I doubt it matters
  19. If we retry an event and place in a higher bracket (say gold vs. silver in 1st attempt) do we get the improved rewards? Or do we get the difference between the two? Or do we only get season points increases? How about if we try an event for the first time? Fellow below seems not to have received anything for doing Australia for the first time. If we get no new rewards except season points, that REALLY dilutes the meaning of the season pass. I want the liveries and wasn’t around for Australia/had technical issues for Baku.

    Strange things happening.

    Spa bug- others have posted. Would be good to have acknowledgement
  21. PGIII

    SPA bug. Again

    Have had it as well. At this point a bug list would be so long as to be embarrassing.
  22. Braking assist is the quickest way to lose races. Some corners simply don’t need braking. It’s not well implemented for how the cars handle.
  23. I knew the last corner of Bahrain was still easily cuttable, but just witnessed first hand a racer still doing the same thing as Konstantin was showing us in the video pre-Bahrain event, going mega wide around corners and somehow not being penalized or even slowed by the sand. That enables the car to keep full speed the entire corner and into the straights. On Turn 8, the driver in my screenshot went about 15 feet into the sand and then ripped back onto the track with no slowdown. But turn 13 was the most egregious- he must have gone 40 feet out wide so that he could keep speed and then absolutely ripped down the straight and was invisible by the time I rounded the last corner. How are basic cheats like this still a thing? It’s frankly unacceptable and explains so much of the time gap for the top 1% of racers. Give us a fair fight, and maybe ask the coding team to at least try to live up to the name of your company.

    Post Update 5 Topics to Address

    Chris, thanks for this. Question: If we complete qualifying or don’t participate in an event, then pay/season pass a retry later on, how will event rewards work? does it just pay out rewards for the first iteration? Due to my framerate issue I posted about below, I didn’t complete Baku’s race and now am worried that I’ve given up that reward for good.
