  1. The game used to be fun and I had some great battles with some top, top players in the events but they all slowly started to disappear. The lack of any developement to the game made it become so boring that i was just going through motions. Then, in the legendary event, I did a qualify lap in something like 1:29.4, 0.5s faster than my previous best which was amazing. I then opened up Race 1 and the thought of having to keep trying to reapeat three perfect laps just depressed me. The events had become so boring and monotonous. I'm now playing F1 2021 on the Xbox and it is so much mo
  2. Because I gave the game up through boredom!!
  3. Surely the ghost system would prevent them ramming you.
  4. This happens quite often but it's not to get a tow down the main straight, the game isn't that advanced. It's simply because the AI are programmed to follow the racing line so they get into formation early on and stay like that for the race (except for when I try to overtake them then they suddently swerve into and push me off the track).
  5. Have you read the Codemasters frequently asked questions on this subject? Why aren't other players penalized for driving off the track? When you drive outside of the track limits, your car noticeably slows. This is also true for your opponent. However sometimes, due to latency in either your connection or your opponent's, this appears not to be the case. This is because of an issue known as "Rubber Banding" where the position of other players can be inaccurately displayed on your device. If you see, therefore, another player driving off track, this does not indicate
  6. How does the matchmaking work? Duel mode aims to put you into a race against another player with a similar amount of Cup Points and, therefore, similar ability to yourself. The Performance Indicator (PI) value of each player's F1 car is not taken into account during the matchmaking process. There is the possibility during matchmaking of large differences between players regarding Cup Points earned being matched together. This is rare, but offers you the opportunity to earn a large amount of Cup Points, or have very little to lose. From the Codema
  7. You don't even have to go wide, you basically touch a kerb in sector 3 and you get a looooong 'corner cut' penalty. It's silly and doesn't reflect F1 at all, as usal Codemasters are creating problems that weren't an issue to begin with. In Suzuka or France if you run wide onto the grass/run off area you spin out or go to 30mph in a split second, if they want to stop people going of track why can't they do the same thing instead of the lazy corner cut penalty which lasts until the finish line? At least spinning is somewhat realistic. When was the last time a F1 driver got an engine cut pen
  8. Try and race in Austin, touch the kerbs in S2 and S3 and you get a corner cut penalty
  9. You need to be aggressive and block the AI cars from overtaking. Once you're through the first corner you won't see them again but weave and move around to block them.
  10. No, which position do you start the race in the 0PI?
  11. When this happens you're playing aganst a BOT.
  12. It's not because you still get the +6.5s if you start at the front. Here is the official explanation; Update 14 - GP Events - Extra seconds added to Race End Series times When playing the Race End Series, the race timer starts counting as soon as the 3, 2, 1 countdown is over. However, it's only when you cross the starting line that the timer's animation appears on the top left corner of your screen. Therefore, the time which first appears on the top left timer corresponds to the time spent between the moment the 3, 2, 1 countdown was over and the moment you crossed
  13. Russia, ike many race 2's in the events, has a but where it adds 6.5s to the race time. It's the same for everyone so no-one gets an advantage.
  14. I've tried to start this at the correct time but if it doesn't go to 3:15
  15. Seen people doing 1:34's but it seems other people have found a way to cheat already. Glad I noticed it before I spent any time or money on this event.
  16. For me there was very little wheel-to-wheel racing before the collision shield, 99/100 I was taken out by my opponent at the start. I'm not a huge fan of the shield because it has taken a bit of an unknown from the game, but I've won a whole lot more duels because of it. At first people tried to ram me at the start of races and they'd just go off the track, now they don't even bother and the races are much cleaner because of it.
  17. There are lots of poeple who have started using the RUL abbreviation in their name who have no connection to Denis. I've met a number of them who I've never seen on his streams and who then start to ram you. The ones who are genuine RUL racers are all clean and respectful.
  18. I still don't understand why a damage model wasn't introduced, you hit someone, even a BOT, you lose 25% of your PI each time. When people start losing performance and races they'll soon stop ramming.
  19. I must admit once the current event is finished I'm considering uninstalling the game. The last few days of duelling have been so depressing, getting smashed all over the track not just by my opponent but the AI. If they don't smash you in sprint or grid starts they use short-cuts in qualifying duels like Monza, Abu Dhabi, Spa etc. The game is basically riddled with mistakes that favour cheaters, right down to me getting an engine penalty when someone rams me from behind or getting a corner cut penalty when pushed off. They've set the game up to reward the cheaters, the AI are impossible
  20. They should give us the choice of what type of duel we want to race, press 'play duel' and then have the option of qualifying, grid or sprint.
  21. Codemasters have changed the code so that anyone ramming head on cannot DNF someone else. Personally I don't see why they don't automatically disqualify anyone who has the 'wrong way' warning on their screen for more than 5s.
  22. He took me out in the first corner in Texas, I caught up with him in the last few corners and he weaved at the finish line, w@@@er.
