    Listen to the Players

    Dear Codemasters, Can you please listen to what the players are telling you about this new update. The Assists are all wrong, before this update everyone was happy with the cars performance our major beef was with the clowns in grid races. I have to confess I spent over $700 last year(and yes I have receipts) to upgrade my car so I could get an advantage over other racers. For the newer racers here what I learned was: yes my car was upgraded better than most and it gave me a big advantage in GP events to overcome my lack of skill and make me very competitive, but it also made duels more difficult to win as now I was matched against similar PI racers. My aero was at 941 and overall PI set at 1828, but in hindsight I would have been better not to spend money and have the car around the 1200 PI mark. It was way easier to win races at that level. With this update the assists are all wrong and there is simply no advantage in upgrading parts so updating with credits as one accumulates them is still valid as what else can you do with them but to spend any money is just stupid. Codemasters: F1 cars don't drive like the present assists with twitchy cars fishtailing and flying off the road with the slightest mistake. F1 cars have outstanding grip and handling! For me the game has become unplayable. I never enjoyed grid starts because of the clowns (and very rarely entered one) but I did enjoy qualifying races and single races where I could try and improve my lap times. I was very much looking forward to the 2020 season and yes I would have purchased a team car and a season pass but now I am stopping playing because all the enjoyment has gone. While last year I spent $700 (my mistake) I would have this year happily spent $100-$200 for a game I enjoy. It's a relativity cheap sport and entertainment, however after many hours testing and trying different setups the game now is totally wrong and I'm not the only one telling you this its all over this forum and Reddit. I have stopped playing as of now. I will continue to monitor this forum and Reddit from time to time to see if you have ditched the new assist format and re-introduce the old format everyone is asking for. Until then its bye from me.

    Anyone drives with driver's POV?

    I use the drivers POV as its more realistic. The exterior view to me reminds me of the old arcade view. I know most of the faster guys in RR3 use the arcade view and automatic acceleration which amazes me, with the exception of HC (Henry) Drue who is the best of all. Henry uses manual acceleration and in car view so we are in good company although I'm a long way from his level!!

    Real Racing 3

    I've been racing Real Racing 2 and Real Racing 3 since they were both introduced and moved to Mobile F1 about 6 months ago. What attracted me here was the full roster of F1 tracks and the duels, In my garage I've got 260 cars 3/4 of which I've hardly driven since i got them. Still a member of one of the top 50 teams and still compete in the team challenges from time to time but frankly after nearly 9 years of RR2 and RR3 I've become bored with the same old tracks I've been around thousands of times and the constant pursuit to upgrade the endless number of new cars as they come out Obviously I'm a huge F1 fan but now having a fully upgraded Ferrari SF90 and finished the 2019 Champion Series and Invitational Series what else is left? Just 5 tracks to race in the rotational daily challenge? Waa I'm bored again. Unless the F1 cars come up in a weekly OMP all Ive got to do is a 2 lap race which I can win easily. I was sort of hoping the next team challenge (OMP) would include the new F! cars but it's going to be in GT4 cars in which I have no interest. So while we all get frustrated with the idiots in this game, it does (at least for me) have far more attraction than RR3 with the variety of tracks . I've sent them a simple fix but I doubt they will listen, meantime I just race the Qualifying and Sprint races and close and reopen the app if I see a Grid start. Ughh! I'll go in and get one more car in another day when they become available to win because I want a Renault in my garage, but don't write off mobile F1 just yet.
