    Around the Globe - Trophy/Achievement problem

    Some of you might not like my post, but honestly I can live with the achievement/trophy requirement. However, it would be nice to know the reason behind such an extremely high number (out of curiosity). All I need is a tracker.

    True. The devs definitely took the right path on this, not many of us would be able to do. You still have to put in the work but you get fairly rewarded for it now. And thanks, I'm on PS4.

    @Hoo Please tell the team I'm giving them two thumbs up on the new update and my thanks. Please don't ever put us through something like this again. XD I gave up on this before, then there was quiet for two weeks, but @Gmr90 posts gave me new hope... and got the gold myself.

    Well, I give up. I had 1893 pts. Barely getting anything for my finishes then the game glitched on me ("waiting for players" at start of race) and I lost almost 50 pts. Gave it an honest try but that's about all I can do. Hey at least I don't have to stress over this anymore. I really liked the addition of F2 and had great fun with the career but if this returns next year I'll be skipping the game. Sorry, not sorry. Good luck to everyone else still trying.

    Hi @Hoo Thanks for the update, I have a couple of questions about the new changes to be implemented. Does that mean we would lose more points too with fewer people? From what I understand this is for top 50% only. Bottom 50% wouldn't have the opposite effect? So I'm guessing the more penalties someone has the fewer points they receive. Or is it just having any one penalty automatically triggers a set reduction? Would having a penalty also make someone lose more points if they were going to lose some anyway? PS: I could really use that top 50% bonus right about now.

    Totally agree @Hoo@Britpoint - Ok here are some races I did today (with pics attached): Brazil (8/14): -1pts Australia (3/13): +18pts Italy (6/13): -2pts Germany (2/11): +17pts (This one was a weird one, everyone on grid but the race didn't want to start then let some people start one by one, sorry didn't make vid) China (3/15): +24pts United States (2/10): +18pts I'm not sure which one's fair, which one's not, but I think podium should give a little more points in a lobby of 10+ (especially 15). I mean if I lose 30+ pts for finishing 3rd from the back in a smaller lobby, I would like to earn the same for the opposite. PS: Never had a day this good. It's usually 1 step forward 3/4 back.

    @DarrenAH You're right. I'm guilty of that too. I MAY have gone off a wee bit... without adding any useful info. My bad. But you feel our pain. Anyway, I don't think separate lobbies with collision on/off is gonna happen as they don't want to divide up ranked (that was the reason behind not putting skill rating in unranked). And they won't just turn it off for all cause we'll have a new set of people complaining in a new topic. Just my 2 cents.

    Arrgh! So I've been gaining points little by little then 3 races in a row got taken out. Some moron likes to break in the middle of the straight just when I'm slip streaming and another one likes to side swipe me. Lost 80 pts in those races. That's all the work I put in yesterday AND today. @Hoo@Britpoint WHY? WHY? WHY?/How long do we have to put up with this? Did we do something to you guys that you have to punish us so bad? I swear, @blyyy is the smartest out of all of us.

    So after playing some more races today, I came to the conclusion that the changes are very minimal in the overall path and not necessarily positive. First off, the safety rating was changed. It seems as long as you don't get a penalty you improve. I didn't seem to lose rating from just warnings like before. That means you can cut corners and hit people and still move up as long as no penalty was given. Now even higher ratings will have dirtier racers. Second, the skill rating. With lowering both the gain/loss now you need to do more races (as it was mentioned before), and with that more times taken out. And finishing at the back is still quite a big loss. There have been numerous times where I'm 4th-6th/15 and get hit on the first lap (or hit someone who is in the middle of the track sideways) and have to fight from the back with a broken car losing 20-30pts. That can still wipe a whole lotta progress (considering some races I only get 2-4 pts). Now you just have to deal with it longer. At this point I welcome the achievement/trophy being changed to what it was last year, even doing 1000 races as an other option (at least I won't have to care if I have bad races because of others and it keeps ranked races alive longer), or that 500 pts reparation idea. Without a significant change to the system this still is just a headache.

    Ok, I don't want to celebrate just yet, but I think the changes are slightly positive. I played about 4 races today and got hit in 2 of them which meant I finished toward the back losing points, not a huge amount tho. However I did end up with more points at the end than when I started. Unfortunately I got a terrible migraine so I decided against continuing. Also I'm still in the 1500s so I guess points scoring is not as punishing. I would also like to add/confirm that finding larger lobbies on weekdays is becoming a pain. Can't find more than 5-7 players most of the time. I'm on PS4, C rank. It seems like people are gravitating towards Unranked as I can find plenty of lobbies (some even full) during the same time. Some numbers I remember: 2nd/12... gained 25pts (played a day earlier) 9th/19... gained 7pts (late join started from back) 8th/13... lost ~10pts (got hit) The next 2 races about same lobby size (can't recall quite exactly), finished 9th (rammed in one of the corners) lost ~15, then finished 2nd and gained ~30.

    It does make some sense, however here's something I heard, at 1950 points someone won in a 6 player lobby and got 0 points. Is that even possible? You can't get better than 1st. I guess you don't get points for beating someone with a lower rank. But like it was said before the numbers are gonna fall off eventually and this will be impossible. I was playing 2018 just before 2019 came out and never had more than 3-4-5 players at a time, that wouldn't be enough to reach gold and you can't keep on finding and winning against higher ranked players with a small player base.

    So I thought I give online another chance today. It didn't go well to say the least. It took me about 10 races to gain 80 points then come next race, someone crashes in front of me, no way to avoid it, DNF (and I was heading for the podium too). Lost all those points in ONE race. Very next race I get rammed in the third corner, lost even more. Of course at this point I'm angry and can't concentrate as much. It takes me a while to end up where I started at the end of the day. I played about 5 hours today with NOTHING to show for it.

    I have no idea how you guys are keep putting up with this. Struggling to gain a few points then keep losing hundreds for one reason or another. That's why... This got my full support.

    Online is so broken seriously. My friend and I played league (twice) and neither of us got a medal. I also saw that his ratings got reset just like Patricko's. Finishing 10 races doesn't work either. But I don't want to derail this topic... getting gold skill rating never should have been a requirement with such a broken system.

    Yup, it's like fighting a quicksand. I'm only going backwards in skill rating because if I actually manage to finish well without interruptions it's not enough to make up for some of the stuff that happened due to no fault of my own. I've had rammers, brake slammers, losing points over night, losing points for finishing freaking 3rd, you name it. Honestly, I haven't touched online since the weekend because it left a bad taste in my mouth. This reward/punishment is way outta proportion/unfair. Some of these problems could be remedied if we could choose to play with people we know are clean (ranked doesn't even have an invite option, at least include rating in modes that do) or not losing points for accidentally getting disconnected (the rest of the field still go on with their race).
