    Your cars retain damage now, meaning you'll have to pay to repair them. If someone's going to drive really reckless then they are going to pay the price, literally.

    The new handling will also have a big part in it, with GRID 2 a lot of the crashes came from people not know what lines to take around a corner; and with a dozen players all trying to drift around the same corner it wasn't always a pleasant experience. 

    Another side effect of the handling model is that it will likely attract a different sort of player, it's a semi-sim racing game, not an arcade driving game like GRID 2.
    agree about handling, is the best way to avoid crashers, just a good drivestyle and good car handling.
    About persistent damage, i'm not sure if this will work as deterrent... you can explain better how work that ? and if someone can find funny crash other with semi-demolited car just to make them pay ?

    Democracy (voting) is not the solution. Democracy su*** on gaming because so does the people in 90% of the cases.

    Dedicated servers is the way to go. Full admin monitoring (fascism like a tu** called It in another thread), and the one who doesn't like that, then go look for another server.
    you know how many little di..s will kick u if you are faster than them ? lol kick vote or nothing. i don't accept any kick from host, who host ? what right have to kick others ?
  3. since grid2 the multiplayer online of grid games is totally messed up.
    Grid1 was okay, just fix few stuff and was perfect. But no everything must be screwwed up.
    so:

    - tuning online (i hate that, who ask for that ??
     grid is just about race, not a multilevel field of racing where u see guys overtake u cause have better tuned car. Was the reason of ebay car 5%faster fixed on 1.3patch of grid2 ? (now u cannot know anymore if a guy is faster because better driver or better tuner)
    - flashbacks (who need that and who ask for that online ????????????? )
    - trackcut penalties (just a little push near the corner and you race is over)
    - host kickvote into custom (nice arbitrary justice and host jelous kick fast racers than him), so one more reason to avoid join custo lobbys.
    - spectate mode is a dream
    - no text chat
    - voice chat that become a mute all.
    - automatic only not a option
    - u cannot choose a car once a race is already started







  4. NO FLASHBACKS!!!!


    Mini tournaments/events based on one car class, same as Grid 1



    No tuned cars, we want an even playing field, rather than being out raced by the minority who know how to tune their cars better than us mere mortals / non petrol heads :D

    No corner cutting penalties, instead use off track obstacles to stop players cutting corners or drastically slow the car down when it drives over grass/gravel etc, just like Grid 1.

    End of screen stats to include
    Current WR
    Best Lap
    Personal Best indicator against each player for all to see


    A return of Grid 1's Time Trial, none of that silly Time Attack nonsense.


    No cockpit view - fixed
    DLC mess - fixed
    Handling - fixed
    Online Ram fest - ???



    agree, very important !!

    Codemasters, please answer, what about making discount for those, who have Grid2? You know, Grid2  is not what we wanted, and now, after year, you make what we want, "real Grid" (I hope) Grid2 is nightmare, sorry, and many people will not buy Motosport, because they have sad lesson (me too). Please understand correctly. Love Dirt games very much. Sorry for bad english, i read rules.
    Ciao,
    mmm i doubt they will make us a discount for this reasons... the only discount you can have is wait some steam offer.
    I prefer avoid to buy DLC if they come like rain (this mean more raise-price trick than a real dcl needs).
    i would ask for a demo of grid-autosport, but seems this will not happen (we both know is not "strictly" needed).
    On the paper this game is sure more brain-equipped than grid2... i think online multiplayer need to be improved yet,
    because spectate mode and text chat are still missing.
    On the other side we are watching came back a lot of features like incamview etc...
    :)

    join an existing server thats already into a race.
    wait for that race to finish [how excruciatingly boring]
    next race starts and im in some default car
    voice is on [and i cant turn it off]
    gears are auto only
    damage is off
    alt-f4
    repeat the above 2-3 times
    uninstall the game
    feel stupid

    8D

    thats describe perfectly grid2 online experience, and explain why after 4months was desert...
    I hope grid-autosport online will be better, otherwise there is a risk to ruin a really great potential grid sequel.


  7. I have a feeling that spectator mode is not going to be in Grid Autosport for whatever reason (possibly the consoles stretched to capacity already with other included things).  If this turns out to be the case and you don't add it to the pc version, then at the very least you need to include a race progress lap countdown to give us an idea how long we have to wait to join.
    spectator mode/text chat was into grid1 big part of online experience, to watch other gamestyle, wait and chat...
    i think is a must have.
    I really like the grid autosport ideas and the potential fun we can have... 
    but to make a preorder must be all right since the "paper" features,
    and thats why all my question, so at now,  
    I will wait 1-2weeks after the launch to see if our old grid game is back..  


  8. i would like to know soon as possible if this 2 option there are chance to be implemented into the game... 
    as i understand is ready everything was already ready into grid2 plus your current work to create the new content for grid-autosport... other things as i can see must be done from scratch... for this 2 things of online experience i think can worth it :)  
    -text chat
    -spectate mode from lobby

    An update:

    • Kicking – It depends on the Lobby. In Playlists it’s down to a vote, in Custom Cup it’s down to the Host.
    • Voice Chat – The behaviour is the same as in GRID 2, post-Community Patch. Players can choose different channels to join via a menu in the Lobby, which includes a “None” channel if you don’t want to hear any voice chat. PC has native support for Push to Talk.
    • Automatic Only - This won't be an option sorry
    automatic only what mean ?
    You can't force a lobby into 'automatic only', however you can do it for manual.
    okay, another curiosity, all stuff that ruined grid2 online like track-cut penalties slowdown and flashbacks online... tell me that things are disabled please

    i have some questions about multiplayer @loore (very important side of the game). 

    -1 there is spectate mode from lobby ?
    -2 please streaming text chat soon as possible (as i read there is not text chat)
    - 3 nothing more people splitted by steam download region settings
    - 4 a long custom lobby list
    -5  show the name and flag of racers on the track
    - 6 there are best lap times ? 
    - 7 all car the same online, is possible set option like disable tuning and upgrades into lobby to have all car exaclty the same ?
    -8 there is a complete racing stats on player panel option ?
    - 9 there is a damage HUD ?
    - 10 is possible to have a search button option to find specific racers into a lobby ?
    - 11 a grid1 democratic old style kick vote  or host fascism like grid2 ?
    . 12 collision settings like grid1, on, off(ghost), or forward.
    1) Not as of now
    2) We're looking into it
    3) This is something we'll be talking to Steam about
    4) More details on the custom lobby stuff soon
    5) Yes
    6) Yes
    7) Each car is going to be slightly different, but we are balancing everything.
    7b) Yes, you can turn upgrades off in the lobby
    8) Not sure what you mean? We're planning on full driver stats on RaceNet
    9) Yes, it's also been improved. You'll see the assist lights next to it which actually work. For example when ABS kicks in the light will flash. UI for that area of the screen is looking great, I love the odometer!
    10) Please see #4
    11) Please see #4
    12) Believe so yes
    okay, thanks for answer, i had to admit cm is trying to make everything okay (their best as possible),
    as i can see this grid autosport born directly from grid2 but with the right cards.
    And an eye always on community, i'm sure will be the right road to do well.

    Online lobby have too much dead times and there is always the feeling to be trapped.
    Voice must be mute, is noise race and listen other people and language, so thats why text chat
    as grid1 was the best option.
    Then everyone want can use mic and voice (teamspeak or steam).

    Spectate mode from lobby avoid waiting dead time and allow people to watch and join already started race, and with text chat
    is a must.

    This 2 feature are too much important for online, otherwise happen like grid2, i join a custom lobby, there are lot of minutes before to start, mute off for everyone and start to stare a lobby windows. Thats break online experience and turn a game online into and half mute waiting, thats is one of the reason to the online fail of grid2, was really really boredom join lobby and custom list !!!

  13. optimization for the old gen console mean a good smooth running on mid level pc...
    .. i'm a gamer too, and through the years i always "exploited" the market at my advantage.
    There is a long tern console market based on xbox 360 and ps3 with fake directx upadates and minor visual changes coming the years? for me this mean i can happily keep my 2008 old rig PC and upgrade 
    the vga to play everything. (just an eye to overclock cpu to avoid cpu limited and increase filters and resolutions lcd).
    be smart people... don' buy the latest double titan nvidia to play x360 console porting on PC, and don't buy instantly a new gen console for 400 or more $ with few titles and game company support.
    Enjoy stunning graphics on cheap mid level pc is better :)

    Looks like a legitimate non-approved leak, sort of.  Or not.  Come on Flash, what have you got?  The eurogamer link has no text, except the sidebar.

    The pics are dandy.  Look a lot more like GRID than G2.  Got the haze and dust in the air, depth of field is great.

    Frank
    got what ? :) (is not me posts with images)
    anyway images are from eurogamer.pt and looks very very nice !
    if this game follow grid1 as gameplay and basic features.. well thats good.
