    New update

    Not for me, these are the new options; There's still no low steering assist with no braking. Intermediate is far too slow and pro has the car sliding all over the place still.

    New update

    After taking on more feedback since yesterday's update and assessing data, we've made more live changes to some aspects of gameplay, including assists and general stability Full details in our official Facebook group Still no low steering assist............

    Brake setup after update?

    I have a little bit of braking on 2 out of 3 set-ups and can notice the difference. This update does seem like a ham-fisted way for the developers to make other aspects of R&D more relevant, not just full aero anymore.

    WITH THE NEW ASSISTS, IT'S A FAIR GAME NOW.

    You've asked everyone and they've said that have they?

    New update

    I actually think the steering is a bit better now and it's more accurate on the turn in, but it's far too easy to lose the rear end on a corner and go off track, ruining your race. The problem is the inconsistency, I can take a corner the same way on a number of occasions and everything is fine then suddenly, on one lap, I’ll get a load of oversteer and bang. What I don’t get is that people always had the option of playing with no steering aids, I had mine set to low but it worked well for me. Now they’ve changed it so you don’t have that choice anymore, limiting the players options. This has also made the R&D function redundant as I can’t put together consistent laps to be able to tell whether one set-up is better than another. Before this update this was a fun game to play where progress both on and off the track were easily measured, now it’s frustrating, harder to play, easier to lose and none of the actual problems like people smashing you off the track have been fixed, it’s made it easier for those people. They've completely changed the dynamics of the game which no-one was asking for.

    Really? I’ve been smashed off the track in nearly every duel I’ve played. This update hasn’t made a bit of difference to the people who don’t want to race.

    New update

    I’d be shocked if the report button actually did anything. I played three duels immediately after the update and was wiped out on each occasion. What good is reporting someone after you’ve lost points? this update has created more problems than it solved. I’m lapping 4-5 seconds slower than previously, DRS is basically unusable on any track and I don’t know how to set the car up as you can’t compare two laps because you never had the same corner entry. I had all assists off before except for low steering and it worked fine, now I’m all over the track. If people wanted to race without steering assist they had the choice but now no-one has any choice. They’ve also changed the rules and dynamics of the game in the middle of two live events, how are people so haven’t set a time meant to compete with those who set times before the update? this is a real mess up and I’m ready to hit the delete button

    New update

    All they’ve done is made it harder to keep the car on the track while increasing the punishment for going off the track. This is rally game now. And you still get people knocking you off. I’m done with it.

    Lost 1000pts in one night, games getting deleted.

    New update

    Exactly, I play this on a mobile phone and it’s too Difficult to steer now without the low drawing assist. DRS on some tracks is a complete nightmare because you start to drift off the track and when you try and move you get loads of oversteer and crash. This has been another really poorly thought update that no one even asked for.

    New update

    Thought I’d give some duels a go, one grid start at Monza and one sprint start in France and I’m pushed off the track each time, no punishment for the opponent. so much for race hard, race fair. Oh but we’ve got the magic report button now 🙄

    Improving Top Issues - Duels

    Well the latest update should improve the problem during duels, because no-one will be playing anymore!!

    Improving Top Issues - Duels

    There's nothing fun about being driven off the track 6 or 7 races in a row. I really don't see the point in people playing a racing game and then going out of their way not to race!! The damage/penalty model doesn't work either, people steer into you as you're overtaking and hit the front/side of your car and I get the time penalty!!

    Improving Top Issues - Duels

    Just get rid of grid starts please, they offer nothing to the game. On any track with a slow first corner like Monza, Bahrain, Brazil, USA or Hungary etc it is exactly the same every time, smashed into by your opponent the second you start to turn in and pushed off the track. They carry on their merry way while it takes you 3s just to get back on track, race over. There's no skill or ability to these races, just frustration. It's got to the point where I close the app when it gives me a grid start.

    Game is rigged?

    You obviously want to get into some kind of d**k swinging competition "oh look at me and how great I am". If you want to brag about how well you're doing in the 0PI event then go for it, I'm more than happy with my position thank you. But then I don't pay to have loads of retries like I expect other people do so again it's not really a great comparison is it.

    What have I said in my post that suggests I'd blossom in that event?

    Brazil 0 PI Challenge top lap times

    I did a 1:08 which I thought was impressive, I could maybe knock another 1s off if I practised some corners a bit more. But some of those lap times in the 1:04 - 1:05 range are crazy.

    Game is rigged?

    Practice isn't the only answer, I have all assists turned off and I practice on every track regularly when I’m trying a new set-up, but I'm sometimes 1s behind after the first corner. My opponents have superior acceleration and top end speed, that's what an extra 300-400 PI points does. Their PI shows them having more aero, more power, less weight and better handling than my car, I can set personal best times and still lose by two or three seconds. I can beat them too if not I wouldn't have made it to that level, in qualifying mode I probably win more often than I lose. Sprint and grid starts are basically a lottery.

    Game is rigged?

    Exactly the same thing is happening to me, I reached Elite 1 but I'm now constantly paired against opponents with 300-400 higher PI than me. They're able to corner much faster than me and have much better straight line speed, the races are over before the end of the first sector, even when I'm setting personal bests. On top of that the over-aggressive AI controlled cars have basically ruined every grid start. I had five grid starts in a row where I was taken out in the first corner by the AI cars. If I try to be aggressive they side swipe me off the track, if I'm passive I'm rammed from behind and pushed off the track. The last two days I've lost over 300 points ranking points. I'd probably be happier to pay for upgrades if the gameplay in grid starts and sprint races was better but I'm not spending money to get constantly wiped out by AI controlled cars.

    Another update...

    Just moved up a level so I've been able to add a bit more performance to the car, just did a 1:19.99.
  22. G1bby

    Another update...

    I have no brake assist and low steering assist. I've just been exerimenting with my set-up, my previous best was a 1:23.6 using a full aero package (aero = 640ish) but I've now added a bit more power and handling and after a bit of practise I've just done a 1:21.4 so a 2s improvement. I think that's teh most I can get out of my current parts, need to get some upgrades...........

    Another update...

    How did you knock +1s off your personal best, did you have some upgrades? I'm braking in the same places as you (for shorter times too) and taking the same lines, I obviously don't have the the perfromance in the car to get near those kinds of times.

    Another update...

    I'm still seeing the oppostion have incredible pace from nowhere, in qualifying at Singapore I was 0.4s behind before the first corner, which isn't very far from the start line. They flew past me like I wa standing still. I lost about 300pts after the update, losing duel after duel to people with lower car ratings than me, I'd do a personal best and they'd beat me by +2.0s. In one event I had a grid start at Monaco, the oppostion car moved forawrd before the countdown had finished, smashed the car in front into the air, it landed on may car and I DNF'd before the race had even started. It's really hard to win points on this game but so easy to lose them (even ignoring the amount of times the game crashes when loading a duel and when you restart you've lost more points). Agree on some of the race times in Bahrain, those times are unrealistic. My personal best is a 1:23 and I'm miles from the front-runners.

    Cheating

    The sprint races or grid starts are basically unplayable, if it's not your 'human' opponent taking you out at the first corner it's the AI cars being unpredictable. I was in a sprint race in Baku with a +3sec lead, arrive at a 90deg corner and there's about four AI cars stuck there, I can't brake in time and end up DNF'ing. Played Spa and while going through Eau Rouge there's an AI car facing the wrong way after I go over the hill, absolutely no way of seeing them and again I DNF. Even qualifying duels can be frustrating, I raced someone at Silverstone and their car was going off at every corner but returning to the track without losing any time or speed. If I go even slightly off track I lose two or three seconds. I enjoy a lot of the racing but you basically have to push your way through the AI cars or take your opponent out before he does it to you.
