    Bad drivers

    Here’s an a-hole driver who smashed into me from the side just as I was about to pass him/her -Hugo HJM 28. He/she won the race but we all know what a loser drivers like these are.

    AI fix the race!

    Frankly, the game is unplayable - Bot cars bash into you, block you randomly, push you off track viciously and on and on. Personally, I have lost total interest and as much as I have detested playing the game sometimes, I have championed it for the most part. But now, I play less. In the past few months since Codemaster’s did the best they could to take out aggressive cheaters who crashed into you and got away with it (ghosting - it works - give credit where it is due), - but since then I have not been able add any pi/R&D points to my car (no idea why I don’t get anything to upgrade my car, even tried purchasing a few packs) - I have been in races where my opponent jumped from being a second behind me to 5 seconds ahead - in a flash, couldn’t get past 6300 for a week or so because I kept winning a few and then got pushed off track or because of other bizarre ways to lose. Bottom line - You can win a few races with this game. But overall, you lose.

    More lap, please?

    Seems like the AI cars need some anger management counseling. God forbid we get on their wrong side (pun intended), they will take you out. I have recently lost more races because of AI interference (and not getting PI points for 3 months for some weird reason) - than ever before. So they fix the vicious driver issue but mess up on AI cars aggressiveness. Never a win here but I still play. Heaven help Codemasters if there’s ever a half decent F1 mobile game that launches somewhere...somehow.

    Collision shield not working properly

    Honestly, this system is working way better than any other they’ve tried but I just wonder why they can’t heavily (and I mean heavily) penalize offenders with loss of points etc. ? Like in real F1 racing. You cause a collision - you pay the price.

    So I have gotten zero, like literally zero R&D points the last few months. Like nada. Nothing. Does not matter if I play events, get to 8k, win by a million seconds. Even the packs gave me zilch. In elite league 1, pretty much everyone has at least 150 points more than my car. So when I win, it is purely based on driving skills rather than car specs. Today, I was behind at Spa to a car that was 200 pi below my car - and (hate to brag), but I drove my heart out, no mistakes, great time. But I lost by over 2 seconds - and that does not even include a corner cut penalty the other car had to overcome. Which tells me there are cheat codes etc out there. Am I the only one? For your sake, I hope so.

    2020 update is here

    If you can find the right assist settings etc, it’s a balance between what things used to be before the last update and the last update. So, braking is more important. Your driving skills become more important again and ramming into one another has been reduced. At least for now. Am sure the usual nutcases who think this a game of bumper cars will find a way to ruin the bliss.

    Anyone noticed change in Engine noise?

    And it isn’t consistent. Some tracks the engine sound is the new annoying one. Other tracks or events it’s the old sound. Am confused. And mildly irritated.

    Bad drivers

    I have for the most part defended Codemasters where i thought folks were being unfair. The last few weeks, however, apart from quali, it’s been unplayable and I am seriously thinking of quitting this game. The cheating has gone to new heights altogether. AI cars ram you off the track. Cheaters with 5.0 safety ram you into walls. Not sure who to trust for fair play anymore. I hope this is just people taking out their Covid -19 frustrations in the game. If not, man, then there’s a lot of angst out there. Well, I’ll give it a month and if things don’t change, I’m out. It’s not worth it.

    AI cars!!!!

    I rarely take on AI cars now. Not worth it. The worst is when you are trying to avoid an overly-aggressive opponent, veer close to an AI and then the AI takes you out. Lose-lose situation.
