    Why do I bother?

    Two duels against opponents with 9999 points, both smash me off at corners. I had the inside line in Australia and could easily have taken my opponent out but I raced fair, he waited until the second corner and smashed me. It's prett clear now there's only one way to play this game and Codemasters encourage it.

    Same car, same setup drive differently at times?

    Sure enough, after practising in Brazil and regularly doing 1m 2s with no issues, I enter the event and get overseer on my second and third laps and go into the grass.

    Same car, same setup drive differently at times?

    I’ve had this today, I have a set up that is really stable around Sazuka and doesn’t slide off the track but today I had two duels there’s and both times I slid off the track in unusual places.

    Why do I bother?

    Sp a sprint race in Bahrain, my opponent smashes me twice without any penalty at the start, I get past him in sector 3 after he makes a mistake, he then smashes me from behind and I get a contact penalty and he flies off and wins. This game is *****.

    Elite Championship cheating?

    He's apparantly done a lap of 59s at Montreal in the America's event..............

    AI cars!!!!

    That's what I was doing in Japan, had a healthy lead so took it easy into the corner after the straight, the AI car just smahes into the side while taking me on the inside!!

    Race retries

    After completing an event you have the choice of retrying R1+R2+R3 but no option of doing R1 or R2 only. If I select the option of retrying all three races do I have to do all three or can I just do R1 and my previous R2 and R3 times will stand?

    AI cars!!!!

    Yet again, 3s ahead in Japan and about to take enetr the corner after the long straight, an AI car smashes me from the inside and sends me off the track!! Luckily I managed to get back on track and take the win but I lost teh final sector. I'm sure they're programmed to be aggressive if you're leading by too much time.

    Pre season testing Singapore

    Ha ha ha they're using people to quality control their product and charging them to do it.

    New update

    Why is it since the update, every qualification duel I race in Monza, my car hesitates at the start and my opponent zooms past me at full speed??? I’m 0.5s begins before I get to the first corner!!!

    New update

    First impressions of the new update is that they've truly screwed the game up. I can't go round any corner at speed without the rear end getting away from me and spinning me around. Haven't been able to complete a single lap yet without an issue. My car now handles like a truck but I have to drive at milkfloat speeds just to stay between the white lines as now you're penalised as soon as you go near them. The assists have been simplified to steering, braking etc all under a high to low setting, why change this, it worked perfectly well before hand. I just hope this is like the New Coke from the 1980's and by bringing out an inferior product it will make us all feel better when they revert back to the old.

    Punishment vs rewards

    Another idea would be to take away the the box on the steering wheel which shows you how far behind your opponent is and which side they're trying to overtake, this would stop people forcing you off the track when you're overtaking them.

    Punishment vs rewards

    Wow I thought this about half an hour ago too 😂
  14. I started practising this this morning in preparation and my best was a 1:26 but on average I was more like 1:27. Then I saw it was 40CR to enter and though, no thanks.
  15. When this update came out I set assists to pro and lost over 2000pts. After that I changed the assists to intermediate and I won them all back in one evening but i didn't enjoy it, I felt like all I was doing was steering the car with a little bit brake every now and again. I've now gone back to pro and I'm stabilising the results. Most of my defeats wil lbe down to me making an error which costs you 2-3s.

    New update

    Lost two grid starts in a row last night, one in Australia where I had a good start and was 1s ahead going into the first corner, an AI car overtakes me and hits me into the wall causing a DNF. Another in Canada where I was +3s in the lead over my opponent in the last sector, thought I'd take it nice and slow through the last chicane so I don't hit the wall, another AI car flies up the inside, smashes me into the wall and I DNF. The AI behavior is awful.

    New update

    I can guarantee that in survey CodeMasters did the top two issues people had with this game were 1) cheaters who smash you off the track and 2) over aggressive AI cars. What has been done about either of these? Nothing, instead they sabotage about the only thing that worked well and no one complained about, the assists. Since the update I probably have a 10% win percentage on grid starts, the opposition player just smashes into me as soon as I turn into the first corner. The report button is winding me up even more as I know it doesn't do anything. It seems sooooooo easy to fix this issue; 1) When you select a duel you're offered a choice of which type you want, qualifying, sprint or grid. Youc an select how ever many you want but if you only want qualifying you just select that. 2) Add damage to a car once it hits you, if they ram you they get front-wing damage and have to start driving slower, giving you a chance to at least catch up. This update is a complete waste of time. I’m not spending another penny on this game.

    New update

    I didn't even mention the asists!! My point was we've all had to learn to play this again after the update but with the 2020 cars coming soon, we'll likely have to go through all the development work again. It is a waste of our time.

    New update

    So the current live event is pre-season testing the 2020 cars and those of us who won't pay 100CR to enter this event are still using the 2019 cars, correct? Am I to assume that once the 2020 cars are released the set-up and characteristics of the car will be totally different once again? So any development we've done to make the 2019 cars drivable after the latest update will be useless and we'll have to go through all this again.

    New update

    To be honest I’ve started ignoring the car PI. The way the game is set up now the car is secondary. I can drive three or four laps of the same circuit and my times will vary by about 2s. One small mistake and you have to brake longer or you go slightly off track and it screws your lap time up. the whole R&D and upgrading parts means nothing anymore as I know it won’t make up for any lost time. That’s why anyone with VIP should just cancel.

    Listen to the Players

    Yup, with the low stability now any touch sends you flying all over the place. This update has given the non-racers even more advantage. But oh yeah we can ‘report’ them. I just had about 6 or 7 grid starts in a row where I was taken out in the first corner by the opposition player. My safety rating went from 4.7 to in the red during that time. why can’t the front of the car be more sensitive to damage so any one smashing into another player gets front wing damage and they drive much slower, so you’ve got a chance of catching them up again. There was so much wrong with this game and they decided to change the assists 🙄 I’m close to giving up now.

    New update

    That’s the problem with adding the extra r&d slot, everyone thinks they’re getting a huge jump in their PI but so is everyone else. This players with a high PI probably had loads of good parts in reserve so their percentage increase in PI will be much higher.

    New update

    I lost nearly 2000pts after the update, lost probably 80% of me duels. I have no interest in upgrading my parts anymore as I know they won’t make a difference, the car isn’t the problem. the alternative is to switch to intermediate settings but there’s no enjoyment in that, you’re basically steering the car round. I’m packing it in now, going to try RR3, CodeMasters clearly don’t care about their product or their customers.

    New update

    Yup, for me the game is done. I’m doing better with braking and steering assist than without. Where’s the fun in that? You’re basically steering a car round a track but that’s what they’ve done with this stupid update and refusing to correct it. I’m now deleting it and going back to my other games, shame on CodeMasters.

    My handling is in the 600’s and I just spun out on the first corner at Silverstone!!! Wow this game is terrible now.
