    Real Racing 3

    Hi there ... I've gone the other way ... as you I'm a huge F1 fan and that's why I've been super excited when F1 mobile racing came out (since F1 mobile 2016 was amazing at the time) ... after many hours of racing F1 mobile racing and being active in the forum making suggestions (and being ignored by Codemaster unfortunately) I moved to RR3. I get the point with the limited challenges (although the variety per track is much higher) but flow of the game is superior by miles and so is the graphic and the physics as well. I've got 5 F1 cars so far (all earned by completing the GPs) some fully upgraded and I'm completing these challenges as well. Each car has it's own characteristics and is not just a skin. I'm now waiting for the 2020 season and more tracks too. Coming back to F1 mobile racing after the last update just reconfirmed my decision to leave I'm afraid ... Nothing has changed !!! ... and the game feels clunky and the graphics have fallen behind ... So sad to see ... (again I've said that many times) ... unless there is a fully new game from Codemasters I will stick to RR3. SORRY Codemaster ... it's in your hands.

    Improving Top Issues - Duels

    @CMF1mobile Really ??? All the issues have been reported here over the last YEAR and nothing has been done ... this was a season of Beta testing and honestly it p***ed a lot of people off. I repeat what I've been saying (and I've been ignored) ... I'm a huge F1 fan and F1 2016 was the best mobile F1 game ... then came F1 Mobile Racing and the expectations were (understandably) high. It didn't come anywhere close ... we as the players and fans tried to help you build what could have been the best games ever and you ignored us. Now there is competition (Real Racing 3 F1) and I can tell you their gameplay is miles more enjoyable compared to F1 Mobile Racing. Yes it is limited tracks (so far) but I remember this game started the same. After reaching elite level at F1 Mobile Racing you are forced to pay money to have the smaller control over the parts your car upgrades (I have to play hundreds of duels to be lucky to be able to upgrade my epic or legendary parts because everything else is totally useless) - at RR3 after having taken part in three event I OWN 3 different F1 cars and I can chooses what part of which car I upgrade with the cash I earn. Unless Codemaster changes this app fundamentally I will stay away and support the competition. PS: I'm willing to pay for a F1 mobile game (as I did for F1 2016) but only if this means I can actually drive F1 races. My suggestion ... keep developing the F1 Mobile racing app and use the tech / code you already have to give us F1 purists and app we buy which allows us to race the way we did in 2016 (including races with degrading tires, pitstops, damage to cars etc.)

    Oh, the feels... ๐Ÿ˜Š

    I though this would happen but so far there is no gold required ... it seems the F1 money works differently to the other RR3 cars ... so far so good ... I also enjoy the graphics more ... real Halo and no annoying racing line painted on the floor ... and the actual quali laps don't have the stupid ghost cars you always start the lap IN in F1 mobile racing (they never added the Off switch for that which I've been asking for since the release of the game)
  4. I'm fed up with this ... I'm changing to the competition (REAL RACING 3) actually they shouldn't be 'competition' because it's not pretending to F1 ... it's just a racing game with FAIR racing and not a BS game that doesn't even want to follow the rules that he real racing series needs to follow. the Update 8 changes nothing only makes it worse: - I have only 80% of the car performance in grid & sprint duels AGAIN ! - the tracks are messed up AGAIN ! (i.e. Sochi - first DRS zone starts at the detection point NOT the activation point) - my setup doesn't perform the same way anymore as use to AGAIN ! - I can't take the corners at the same speed anymore and I worked soooo hard to get the performance parts which are not seem to just have been downgraded. - since update 8 I have experienced a lag in steering and throttle response compared to before ... and even my road car is more responsive ... this is a sport where split seconds count - non of the actual issues have been addressed in the last three updates ... (i.e. the unfair disadvantage for players who actually want to play the real F1 and use the cockpit camera only to find themselves driving within the opponents car and have to guess the braking point and turning in point because it's all blurred) THIS GAME IS A DISGRACE FOR FORMULA 1 FANS & CODEMASTER HAS LOST THE EDGE THEY HAD IN THE 2016 GAME - THIS IS JUST ONE OF THOSE DEMOLITION DERBYS WITH AN F1 PAINT! If I want some F1 racing I will play the F1 2016 game. good bye !!! PS: I've been playing REAL RACING 3 and I'm having a lot of fun ... even on some of the F1 tracks ๐Ÿ˜‰ ... and I can choose which parts to develop ... and whilst racing is hard IT IS FAIR ... I'm not connected in any form to real racing apart from wanting a racing game to be fun.

    You've done it CODEMASTER - I'm leaving

    quick update ... Real Racing 3 has now got F1 and this is where I will remain (more control over how to develop the car and when going off track you get a penalty with a chance of making up the extra time and not get stuck in the quick sand for ever and totally ruining the lap) and the bonus is you can drive some amazing classic F1 cars you can drive too. enjoy F1 racing and maybe I see you there. sorry CODEMASTER but you brought that on yourself (I've tried very hard to help you but sadly you didn't even try to listen)

    Update 8 is a step in the wrong direction

    are you driving in in-cockpit position? try that in quail mode in a single and you will be inside all your opponents for a few corners ... reported it many times ... NO reaction from CODEMASTER
  7. akajk88

    Update 8 is a step in the wrong direction

    for me the steering is all wrong ... I drive without driver aids but the steering fells like westling with another person who wants to turn somewhere else (seems most significant in the serious of flowing corners in Mexico ... every corner is a surprise ๐Ÿ˜ณ Used to work perfectly in earlier interactions and I could drive confidently to the edges of the walls (ie. Singapore) but now you have to anticipate total wrong turn in or even the steering changing turning angle when you hold perfectly still. undriveable ๐Ÿ˜’

    You've done it CODEMASTER - I'm leaving

    just a quick update ... Playing Real Racing 3 instead of this makes me realise how bad F1 mobile racing has become (had a quick few races to see if anything had changed)... lets not compare cars or tracks or money you have to collect etc. it's simply about acceleration, braking and steering ... since update 8 of F1 mobile racing someone is grabbing my steering wheel and randomly pulling it into the opposite direction so that turning the steering wheel is 'a box of chocolate, you never know what you are going to get' As for accelerator, there is a lack of reaction even though it shown on the screen it just doesn't start accelerating ... If this happen in F1 they would fire the engineer and start an investigation into sabotage. also all the other issues are still here so I'm off again to RR3

    You've done it CODEMASTER - I'm leaving

    heya ... I see your points but my experience is actually the opposite (of course both will try to get your cash but both you can play without having to spent anything) now to your points here is my experience: 1. 95% of the races I've played in F1MR (F1 mobil racing) were against bots and at least in RR (Real Racing 3) they don't try to run you off the road and when they go off they get penalised too. The skill is to get your lines and raking and acceleration right and you will have a chance to win in RR. (the only thing I don't like is that they don't let you join the race if you don't reach the minimum performance rating as you could in GTRacing2) 2. Idiots will always be there. Only in F1MR developed a system where the idiots can give you a penalty ... whilst in RR you can just race and the mistakes will be deducted from your bonus after the race. So you can drop a wheel just outside the racing line and get back on straight away (without getting stuck in super glue for seconds) and still win, or if a car touches you, you won't get an unfair engine cut, or if you get brake tested by the AI and touch them square at the rear you won't be catapulted into a 360, or ... I could go on ... 3. Actually RR doesn't try to get your cash not more than F1MR. Once you've worked hard enough to fill you R&D part with epic parts, all the common and rare parts are useless but that's what you get ... the only way make sure you get some of the epic and legendary parts is to buy packages with F1MR gold (CR) but you only know the you get a minimum of 1 legendary part and not which section of one of the 5 you will get and a box cost you 400 CR. Also to get more power you have to level up which means you have to buy up many boxes (20) and spend thousands of CR (80,000 assuming it will complete one level first which it doesn't) and you still don't know what you're going to get. Also you can't use the resource points to buy parts either which again is useless. At least in RR every time I spent either gold (CR) or R$ (resource points) the car will improve. I prefer RR3 because I can work on what I choose to develop and don't have to play and play for thing I don't want just to eventual get the part I desire. I'd love F1MR to allow me to race and spend the winnings on what parts I want to develop. Also introduce damage so if you keep running into people you ruin YOUR own car (as F1 mobile 2016). give people a CEAN RACE bonus and deduct penalties for going off track etc., apply common sense on corner cuts ie. cutting through the chicane = disqualification and running wide and joining before the turn is already a penalty because you loos time to do so. allow people to choose if they want to see the ghost or not. And pair people on a reasonably equal car performance level. unless F1 Mobile Racing is changing I have more fun in other games. it makes me sad because I loved the 2016 game and F1 Mobile Racing had all the potential but then it all went wrong !!!

    Hit or be hit? That is the question.

    actually I think it's even worse ... the AI is driving as if you weren't there and rear end you on the straights and in the corners and spin you around ... and opponents can race where ever they want and not get a slow down / engine penalty or anything else (and this whole 'bot' excuse is rubbish). It doesn't matter who crashes into you THEY should be penalised !!!

    Crashing game during event load

    I've started a topic about that and addressed it to @ChrisGrovesMCM but he hasn't even reacted to this. Time to play GTRacing2 or something like that ... at least the racing is fairer and the game works.

    Crashing game during event load

    and if the miracle happens and you manage to play you'll be taken out by AI cars ... what a shambles ๐Ÿ˜ž
  13. akajk88

    Paying to retry?

    I'd be happy with that ... unless ... the games keeps crashing (and yes I have a fast consistent connection, I restarted the iPad and app but nothing helps) ... I'm not even getting one chance ... I even paid CRs to just try and complete the even (unsuccessfully though) really disappointing ๐Ÿ˜ž it seems Codemasters has acknowledged that there are issues with finishing races and I got another chance ... just to have my car demolished by the awful AI. firstly ... even with a perfect start from the grid the AI has so much overspeed that I have no chance to get to the first chicane even just keeping my position. secondly ... the AI is unable to actually go through the first chicane without ending up in the gravel only to come back on the track and crash into me, who actually managed to stay on the track ... result ... I get the engine penalty !!! thirdly ... after a clean overtake I was in front of the AI and brake for the last chicane ... only the AI doesn't even try to brake and crashes into the back of me to destroy my car. *** ... how can this game be the official F1 game??? try this behaviour in F1 and you'll lose your licence AND your seat.

    Update 8

    Hi @ChrisGrovesMCM, what can we expect from the update currently being uploaded? thanks
  15. akajk88

    Update 8

    and I'm left with disappointment ... at first glance the game is just the same with bad AI ... and they've added 'crashing game mode' in Events ... this is the second event in just over 1 week that I can't complete because the game just crashes either loading it or even better during the race ... after that I'm charge CR point to try and re-run with no chance of succeeding ... ๐Ÿ˜ž
  16. akajk88

    Crashing game during event load

    and this is the same as for the Belgium GP ... I can complete the Qualifying but the game crashes during the races and charges me CR for the re-run ... the game shouldn't even need a connection after the races has been loaded ... it just like a single race ... why is this so hard? I'm about to give up as nothing seems to change.
  17. akajk88

    Update 8

    Can't wait what community feedback has been put into the game ... dare I hoping for a option to remove the ghost car or even and fair racing AI? ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป๐Ÿคž๐Ÿป
  18. akajk88

    So now we have a clear idea of the game

    or sprint races and grid starts where the AI is just bulldozing through and turning it into a demolition derby ... it's just luck to survive without even trying to beat the opponent ... awful
  19. akajk88

    So now we have a clear idea of the game

    yeah this game is not even about winning against your opponent ... it's about surviving against the bad AI (the one that isn't even connected to the race and can't even drive the track without crashing by itself ... cheats are secondary ... great work Codemaster ๐Ÿ˜ž
  20. and this is the answer from CODEMASTER on the only place you can ask for help (since this forum has been abandoned by Codemasters @ChrisGrovesMCM) "This is an automated reply.

REALLY? what happen to being proud of your product? unfortunately CODMASTERS aim is not to make the BEST F1 game possible but to make the worst F1 game they can get away with. What sad environment are we living in where quality is irrelevant. ๐Ÿ˜ž
  21. I've been denied to complete the races of the Belgium Grand Prix yesterday due to the app constantly crashing when loading the race. I've completed the qualifying when the event started and managed to get the pole (nowhere near as fast as what the people on top of the leaderboard due). Yesterday I wanted to complete the races but was denied to do so. The app kept crashing when loading the race ... (duels and singles did work though) I'm feeling robbed of the rewards I would have gotten (probably silver tier) and don't seem to get any help with the faulty product @ChrisGrovesMCM

    Belgium Grand Prix Event

    It's worth spending some time on adapting to having the braking assist off ... and all the other assists too for that matter ...
  23. akajk88

    Strangest Qualifying Yet?

    just off topic ... what do you use to record the races? (I'm on iPad though)

    Belgium Grand Prix Event

    Was denied racing the races after qualifying on pole but the app refusing to load the races.
  25. 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.
