  1. So the results are in for PC3, nice concept but the current SMS staff couldn't pull it off for whatever reason. The question we're all wondering is, if and when CM will step in and make the necessary staff changes in order to increase sales and save the franchise. Acquiring the studio was a hefty investment, and investors are going to want results eventually cause this is business. The pieces are there for PC3, just needs the proper staff to lead the franchise.
  2. Although the new cars and track are welcomed, having only 1-2 cars per class is really irritating. It seems 6 cars per class is the hard cap as far as coding is concerned, then there should be 6 cars per class across the board. Some of the cars in invitational are throwaway cars no offense. Not well balanced and not fun to drive. You had it right with GRID 2's approach with 4-5 tiers. Racers want options, just like every other type of gamer. Forcing them to choose cars they aren't a fan of in order to compete is not smart developing. Everyone will have a favorite car in each class, and they should feel like they can win in that car and not have to pick the crowd favorite.

    GRID - Mode/Feature/Content Suggestions

    We all agree on that, it would seem that is a bug. Probably on the "to do list" that will be included in a patch.

    I agree, who doesnt know Nurburg GP or Nordschleife.

    Heres my issue with the track situation. If CM have planned to only release 1 track per season, then those tracks should be brand new additions to GRID. Adding in a track that was in the previous game is not well thought out. Hence why I suggested adding 4 per season. Im not asking for 4 brand new tracks, just 4 previous ones.

    You're assuming what ? that I'm a kid or something ? I was born in 82'. I've played games from 8-bit to 80 million polygons, from Frogger to Forza. Turn 10 didnt announce FM8 cause the new consoles are coming this fall. FM8 will probably be a bundle like FM6 https://storeinfluencer.com/products/xbox-one-1tb-console-forza-motorsport-6-bundle?cid=372651985&aid=1340305012620617&eid=&tid=pla-4587368672368974&ul=&mt=e&n=o&d=c&dm=&dt&sn&adid=&k=&p=&pc=&ap=. Do yourself a favor and don't cast judgment on people so quickly you don't even know. Stay on topic and don't let your personal feelings cloud the discussions.

    @CordedQuill42 I agree, but I personally could care less what anyone has to say about me. I speak up cause I'm a fan of the series, I have no problem conversing with individuals when it comes to that. But I often evaluate my own thoughts before commenting, forums only become messy when people lose sight of the purpose of forums. See the thing is, what we're suggesting mutually benefits everyone. A better game means more fans, then those fans share their enjoyment via social media which brings in more people and thus more sales. The communities requests can be too ambitious at times but thats fine, take note of those request and apply them were you can. More transparency would help too, if we know whats feasible then our request would mirror that.

    You're in denial if you think the community as a whole hasnt taken notice of the GRID development. GRID is not some new attempt to make an arcade racing title, its a well known series. To even insinuate that ONRUSH and GRID are on the same level is highly insensitive to the fans. https://www.racedepartment.com/threads/grid-2019-online-public-lobbies-coming-soon.176293/ . GRID is listed on RaceDepartment, the go to site for online racing. Everything that takes place is noted there, even those who dont play GRID know of its development.

    Then by all means continue your course of only 1 track per season and see how the community reacts. I dont think you guys understand how dire the situation is. GRID is a beloved series, and its announcement was highly anticipated. Launching the game in its current state says alot. Everyone who is a fan of CodeMasters games are watching very closely, cause if this could happen to GRID, how long until something similar happens to DIRT or F1 for that matter.

    Probably unlikely, I'd forgotten about LeMans circuit from the original GRID. Thats doubtful as well.

    Tracks that were in GRID Autosport that should return in Season 2 & 3. Spa, Yas Marina, Donington Park, Al Garve, Circuit of the Americas(COTA), Bathurst, Hockenheimring, Red Bull Ring. That would make 4 new tracks per season.

    It's fine if you're not a fan of customization but don't feel a certain way about those who do. You don't agree it has value thats fine, but don't dispute the fact that it has merit. Last time I checked Forza, GT Sport and even NFS have something familiar in common and they all seem to be profiting well.

    Take what I've said how you will, at the end of the day the racers have spoken, not with words but their wallets. They want iconic tracks, a well put together multiplayer experience with fair races. They also want to express their creativity via customization. The racing game industry as a whole understands this, do what you will with that information.

    Theres no such thing as excatly when it comes to BoP, the idea is for cars in their classes to be competitive with one another. I never said anything about making them exactly same, each car will have its own unique characteristics due to different parts, engine, body etc. But you cant have a car 20-25mph faster then all the rest. As for tracks did you know there are 30 reverse tracks ? So half of the track list they boasted arent even unique tracks at all. If they cant use that method in order to fill the list then they have to bring actual tracks. Which would gamers prefer, 60+ tracks with half being in reverse, or 40-50 unique tracks ? Most would choose the later. I've never seen Brands Hatch driven backwards in any IMSA or Blancpain televised event. You cant give us real cars and real tracks and then decide to do things that arent real.

    You're missing the point, they're not under any pressure to have a good track list cause they can always fill the void with reverse tracks. Once they know we wont accept that they will look to add tracks. Custom liveries are a coin flip, some people care and some dont. The car balance is a big issue, no point in having a car selection when everyone will chose the fastest in order to win. We may as well be playing F1 in that case where everyone is using the same car. I could go on and on with things needing to be addressed, but I think everyone can agree on Public Lobbies and More Tracks.
