    Belgium Grand Prix Event

    Was denied racing the races after qualifying on pole but the app refusing to load the races.
  2. Hi all & @ChrisGrovesMCM, I'm getting fed up with the game ... whilst the Elite levels are something else to achieve, the rest of the game (at least for me) is falling apart. 1 - I haven't played against a actual opponent for a while. 2 - Bot's can do what they want and never get slowed sown when miles off the track. Instead they get NOS. 3 - Bot seem to change setup during the duel ... I'm getting ahead due to my performance in the first two sectors and in the last sector the bot get a jet engine and locks into rails. the speed and cornering performance is impossible and especially to the performance in sector 1 & 2. 4 - I'm getting penalised for AI car actively pushing me off the track and to get back on is classed as cutting a corner. 5 - AI is back to being overaggressive ... and craving into people and even other AI cars. 6 - AI moving in the braking zones ... classed as dangerous driving in the F1 rules. 7 - AI car are way to slow in the corners and after they get the good old KERS boost that I don't get and it's almost impossible to overtake on twisty tracks. 8 - Still no flags ... even when AI cars pile up on their own in the Nouvelle chicane in Monaco and fully block the track. 9 - AI car are racing each other aggressively ... I'm fine with that if I had a race distance (or at least 5 laps) to work with but I don't. 10 - only 80% of the performance in grid start races IS BACK ... even with me most powerful set up and the perfect start I'm swarmed by the opponent and AI before the first corner. 11 - I'm being robbed of the rewards when winning duels ... 1 out of three times it won't count to the challenges or the race wins. 12 - I constantly have to restart the app just to get the credits for waiting and playing 3 duels again. It just won't show up. 13 - opposite steering is back. (turn the device right and the car goes left) 14 - nobody from CODEMASTER has been responding to the F1 Mobile Racing forum since just after the pervious update (v6.5) was released. 15 - the in-app HELP has been abandoned and only response in automated replies and even misses it's own 48 hour targets by days. and I haven't mentioned the penalty system !!! These are some of the issues I am experiencing and I've been reporting these too but from CODEMASTERS side ... silence. I appreciate I'm not paying for anything BUT I would if it was worth it. I LOVE formula one but this is turning into MAD MAX with F1 livery and on F1 track. Please feel free to add to this and maybe we get a reaction. PS: a response from CODEMASTER would be much appreciated. Thank you.
  3. I appreciate the life cycle of the game BUT it's just mid season in the real world of F1 and with the summer break ending this weekend we should get some sort of update. Also this game should cycle on season on season since they've introduced the 2019 cars after the season started and made updates to the tracks etc. and I think @ChrisGrovesMCM is NOT AT ALL working on this game and neither seems ANYONE ELSE from CODEMASTER.
  4. Hi all & @ChrisGrovesMCM, @DanHawk1ns, @jennyannem, @PJTierney, as there has not been any sign from Chris here is my review of update 7: Issue fixed / improved: - bumpiness of the tracks - FIXED - this feel right for me - traction and stability - ALMOST FIXED - my only criticism is that it's still changing when I restart the game - icy kerbs and white lines & 'catapult kerbs' - FIXED - my wheels stop rotating during races - FIXED - grid start races - IMPROVED - Snappy steering - IMPROVED - car doesn’t turn in to the corner in duels as it does in single races ... and when corrected it suddenly snaps to turns even more ... still applies to Mexico (the twisty sector) and Baku - car set up - IMPROVED - how can it be that choosing the set up with the 'best' braking makes the braking in the race worse? (that's just an example it also applies to all other set up aspects) ... it seems to be more stable now. issues ignored: - the game is very jumpy - IGNORED - freezes for a second and when it continous it restarts down the road, you have to guess when to turn or brake etc. - the research box descriptions - IGNORED (changed but still wrong) - research and the credit count to finish early) are to small for the greyed out box underneath - ghost car - no option to switch off the GHOST car - IGNORED - if you actually watch F1 you know how critical it is for the driver to get send out on a clear track with NO distraction to get the best qualifying lap - device overheating and game crashing - IGNORED - even starting from scratch my iPad Pro overheats during a 5 lap single race and starts 'stuttering' 3 laps in - unfair penalties - WORSENED - being penalised for other people crashing into you etc. - invincible and over aggressive AI and bots - IGNORED - over aggressive AI (they are trying to spin me by crashing into the back), opponent is invincible. Wrestling with AI until they point backwards but opponent is absolutely unaffected. In contrast I can’t have the slightest contact with another car without violently spinning out of control and if I manage to catch the car AI cars are just crashing into me at full speed. - opponent jumping all over the place - IGNORED - I've been catapulted high up in the air many times by an opponent disappearing and suddenly reappearing underneath me or an AI car & grid start I get a perfect start and seem to gain on the opponent, split second after the opponent is 2 seconds ahead as if he started on a rolling start, not needing to overtake cars, just driving through them as if driving a different race. Opponent started 4 seconds at a grid start before the lights even came on and bulldozed straight through the AI in front throwing them up in the air. - unrealistic and over aggressive AI - IGNORED - not using brakes and just crashing into you, slowing down in the acceleration zone of corners etc. & they now block you by driving two or three side by side at 'walking speed' ie. Spa at Blanchimond at 210km/h which normal racing speed is close to 300km/h or Monaco ... and have no spacial awareness ... and have now started ramming you too. - opponents, AI and me seem to drive different races - IGNORED - this is the only conclusion I come to as it seems the races of the opponent, the AI and myself are disconnected ... that explains the random crashes and the jumping etc. - no DRS behind AI cars or bots - IGNORED - I should get DRS when within 1 second of any other car, opponent or AI car, and this used to be the case but randomly get DRS or not independent of the the car in front of me. - In-App help no response - IGNORED - any time I ask for help I just get a generic 'copy and paste' response and two days after it will just be deleted ... total waste of resources. Issues worsened or newly introduced: - Rank point rewards for duels - NEW - since the update a win is only worth +20 points BUT a loss will cost you -35 plus while previously it was about even. This now make it twice as hard to actually achieve the Elite levels - Elite League - NEW - good idea BUT no reward for players who have already achieved the the ranking. - Elite League rewards - NEW - you will only be rewarded at the end of the month for where you are when it resets ... - experience points loss - NEW - after the update I've lost over 230,000 experience points ... a lot less than others but we should automatically be upgraded to the level we have already achieved - Legendary Parts - NEW - I'm curious about the parts BUT TWO days research time - SERIOUSLY? - wins not counted to challenges - (NOT THAT) NEW - but I haven't listed it in the update 6.5 review ... I had quite a number of wins which the game didn't count towards the challenges I was to complete. - loss of accelerator pedal - (NOT THAT) NEW - again as above this issue has been happening many times. When racing in a duel (or sometimes a single) I brake for the a corner and when I place my finger back in the same spot where the accelerator used to be i don't get it back and need to try and find it in a different spot ... most of the time this is the difference between win or lose. obviously this is purely my observation (played on iPad Pro without assists, drivers view, hard difficulty, just made it back up to 4500 rank points) as before I'm sure my fellow racers might want to add some other thing. happy racing
  5. thanks ... it's sad that a game for the F1 fan is boring the real F1 fans and ends up to be JUST ANOTHER CAR RACING GAME ... I know the bots can be defeated but it would be nice if it was about F1 racing and not a game of HOW TO AVOID CHEATERS. 😞

    And spinning AI cars to use them as cannonballs against players ... ever if they are Bots ... there shouldn't be different rules.
  7. let's hope it like Formula one ... they've figured out that the updates didn't work and go back to the factory ... go back to when it was enjoyable (probably the 2016 game with the 2019 graphics) and build a winning car, oh no game I mean.

    Duels points ...

    I though the theory made sense until now ... just lost to two opponents which were about a third of ranking points below and got -38 for that. They must have been bot as they went all over the place without any penalties or slowing down offline.

    Help Me !

    I did ... I always drive in cockpit mode and it's always been cut out (see screenshot above)
  10. Seems like Codemasters has completely switch off the support (in-app help is only automated replies) and they fired all the people that were interacting with us on this forum.

    Safety Rating

    although once you get out of the red zone for a bit it will stabilise ... it will still fluctuate a lot but I've managed to stay out of the red zone for a few weeks now.

    Help Me !

    just checked all the settings but no there is no options on iOS ... (or its just to hard to find)
  13. akajk88

    Help Me !

    you do get the in cockpit view with halo but the centre bit is cut out I'm afraid ... I'd like a full halo too but this is all we get (for now)

    Update 7

    Hi @ChrisGrovesMCM, the update 7 upload is imminent. What can we expect? thanks
  15. it's here ... see 'Update 7 review ... the Good and the Bad' in the Technical Assistance section of F1 Mobile Racing

    Safety Rating

    I've been working hard on this and it went up and down ... now I'm fluctuating manly between yellow and green ... I've sacrificed hundreds of points and was using the 'complete 70km' challenge to get anything out of it ... try and not get anywhere close to the opponent and stay within the AI cars ... anticipate the braking etc. anticipate any first corner sh** your opponent can come up with and try and stay out of it (try not to fight them ... I know it's hard but this might help) it took me a while .. and I think with the new rank point system it will be even harder for you and you will loose a lot more as it 2 wins = 1 loss.

    Level up!!Whats up!!

    Oh wow ... sorry !!! This shows it' random ...

    This game is possessed

    well ... spot the flying cars ... actually they were the Ai cars at the grid positions in front of the opponent who as you might have spotted took off even before the lights were on and bulldozed through all of them 😳 And unfortunately my game is a lot more unstable ... keeps crashing just before the duel starts and after it has finished (multiple cool down laps and massive pile up in Canada)

    Level up!!Whats up!!

    I lost over 230,000 experience points with this update.
  20. akajk88

    What is this set up?

    Everyone in the grid starts seems to have NOS / KERS button apart from us ... but instead of exiting the game I use them to improve my safety rating (the one I loose when other people just crash into me and I get the penalty) by trying to stay out of trouble without the pressure of having to win 😉

    Here we go again...

    have a look at the 'Announcement Section' in the 'Codie Lounge' under 'F1® Mobile Racing – Welcome to the Elite Leagues' ... (don't know how to link it though) ... it's update 7. I'm still hopeful that some things may improve or we will have a chance to better our top speed record of 420+ again 😉

    Patch 6.5 notes

    Even if they are bots they should be penalised the same way as us ... and so should AI cars for that matter. (at the moment they can face the wrong way and if you manage to avoid them they will overtake you at full speed a split second after.

    Patch 6.5 notes

    Hi Chris, @ChrisGrovesMCM We haven't heard anything from you for a while and I was wondering if there is an update on the feedback above? this weekend is the next GP and usually there is and update coming just before. Is there anything in the pipeline? actually the last few day the car performance and AI performance has been the worst to date. - Ai is actively locking, has no spacial awareness (if I get aside and AI car in the braking zone they will still take the racing line and push me off track) . it feels as if they don't even know where the players are. AI can't drive the first chicane in Monza without a massive pile up every time (without the players being anywhere near them) - opponents can do whatever they want without any penalty (driving off track at speed, touching walls - every time I just brush the wall I get slowed down by the 'superglue'), race sideways at racing speed while wrestling sideways with AI and spinning the AI around. - I have no downforce for the corner which I can easily do flat out in singles and can't put the power down at the point I can in singles without spinning, the turning in duels is inconsistent too. Looking forward to the update from you thanks
  24. it actually is better to be paired with higher safety rated players ... although there are still a number of players who's only aim is to take you out, penalise you etc. because they never get any penalties. I've been working very hard (sacrificing races for rating improvements) but it still is a lottery. on your theory about the players with much better performance I believe that Codemasters is slowing us down rather than the other players having better performance. I don't know what algorithm they apply but my car performance is much worse in duels compared to singles ... no idea how to set up a car if you can't practice and get comfortable with your setup.
  25. I'm fed up with the penalty system and I'm sure my fellow players (the one who are racing hard but fair) are too. LET'S DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! I'm constantly getting penalised for opponents crashing into me. - opponent pushing me off, and I mean pushing by t-boning and keeping full throttle on until I hit the wall sideways tenth of meters away from the track - NO PENALTY for opponent - using me as their brakes in the corner not even trying to not hit me - NO PENALTY for opponent - slowing down on the straight to wait until I'm almost side by side and then side-sweep me into the wall or off track - NO PENALTY for opponent even better I get the penalty - opponent pushing past off track - NO PENALTY not even a slow down and when the opponent touches me I get the penalty - opponent can cut corners, race off track, spin AI cars around - NO PENALTY - no slow down on what for me is super glue and I'm getting punished by AI cars suddenly pointing my way at 300 Km/h FELLOW RACERS ... what is your experience? @ChrisGrovesMCM ... what's in the pipeline to address this? A couple of ideas (some of them were taken form the 2016 game): 1. introduce flags 2. introduce damages to cars 3. disqualify drivers ... could be immediately or one warning and a time penalty and disqualification the second time (at the moment you can go faster around Monaco for example by cutting the chicane and taking the penalty than driving correctly)
