Public custom lobbies, and Online rammer flashback fest lobbies as were on Grid 1, 2 and GAS. With a lobby browser like Grid 1 and GAS.
(Grid 1 minus the flashbacks as that was a proper game, also it had full damage all the time and people still loved the game to death)
I know the world is full of snow flakes these days, and that's why we have and why we will never see the removal of flashbacks. But full damage adds to the excitement. Good or bad. The risk of killing your car. Its like driving an 80's hot hatch down a B road at speed. Its exciting as there are no computers to save you. If you cant control the car your gonna crash.
This era of flashbacks and visual damage and terminal damage that's well, not terminal is for lack of a better phrase...a bit namby pamby.
Whats wrong with having to sit the rest of the race out if you wrecked your car? I know it sucks when its you that wrecks but It gives you an incentive to not wreck your car the next time. It makes people drive better, or they will sit out. Plus it looked great to see your car explode and parts flying off in slow-mo.
It made Grid 1 awesome.
A hardcore mode wont suffice as it just splits the player base. It needs to be game wide all the time. Forced, not just an option. It would only improve the credibility of this game as a proper racer. Thats my opinion any way. 😜
