  1. 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 😉 ... 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

    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 😞

    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 😞 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
  8. 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 ... 😞
  9. 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.
  10. 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? 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻
  11. 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
  12. 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 😞
  13. 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. We are sorry that we have been unable to attend to your enquiry as fast as we would like.

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. 😞
  14. 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 ...
  16. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. akajk88

    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)
