  1. The problem simply lies with the car degrading and damage. At about 1000 KM driven and  6hours track time you hit the repair cost limit of your car at 27k flat. If you look at loaned cards they have driven like 14000 KM and cost you around 2k.. Also that no matter how you drive you always drop the same percentage of durability.. 1 lap without a single scratch or 5 laps fully totaled all red no tires left makes no difference at all, NONE. Poor and lazy coding from the very codemasters.
  2. Id love a GRID with the polished graphics and fixed multiplayer.. the handling in and FEELING ing that game couldnt have been more fun. Autosport comes close but man.. i fucking loved the first one.
  3. Funny thing, was in the worst lobby ever yesterday. They all were freaking crashkiddies driving like they never ever saw a car it could not have been any more terrible.. so the host changed to no collision and seriously.. WHAT?! They all started driving like little gods breaking as if they have never done anything else their whole life.. ....what is wrong with this world.
  4. second place in the first lap seems to work just fine according to that posted video ;P
  5. Actually if you master it i think you will always be faster. But ye it can be the reason if you either gave too much gas and started sliding, which makes you lose tons of speed in this game. Or if you are too carefull and dont give enough gas or just too late.
  6. ABS for me is a must have.. why would any modern race car turn it off anyways.. Traction controll is another thing.. im trying to work my way into turning it off but im just not there. Im struggling between spinning out for accelerating too fast and accelerating so slow im getting overtaken by anyone.. cant find the sweetspot.
  7. i just lost 200k yesterday by driving my car. And i got a lot of podiums. Im at a point where the cleanest race possible makes me lose 25%-30% durability which is (7k each) 21k repair cost all together.. FOR A SINGLE RACE. And thats at a mileage of 600 kilometers driven with that car.. not 6000, not 600K, just 600 with a track time of 4 hours. My friend seems to have hit the ceiling with 9000 each sharp. Doesnt seem to go up anymore. And for all i know hes at 800 km. All this while a loan car that has already driven 14000! KM and got a track time of over 3 DAYS (72 HOURS) gets 1000~ repair co
  8. he posted that before the patchnotes were released. Which i have to say, are quiet disappointing :/
  9. Just practice a little more dude, you will get there. I have gotten platinum on every other tho im stuck at 10600m myself :\ But there is room for improvement i can tell, im just not there yet. Challange is up for a week for a reason, it should not be too easy. Platinum should feel like you actually achieved something. If it wasnt challanging it would be boring. Dont give up!
  10. Agree. The normal chase cam is okay, the far one should be higher though. I believe its because the field of view on Grid was higher. Thats why it looks a little "stretched" on the sides. Not like you can look over hill when you are sitting in a car. You should not be able to see beyond that. But i agree that the far chase could use some lift.
  11. Well for what its worth the game is 1000 times better off with a votekick system in place.
  12. The moment you realize you are trying to revange-ram.. the AI.. that rage man, ive been there. holy shitbucket. How did you do that. No matter how i drive i always end up around 10600. Can you make a video of it? Not that your pc needs it but you could just record the replay if it has an impact on your driving.
  13. Does this patch carry other changes with it? :o
  14. I think im getting him. I dont really have a wheel tho but i get there is a difference between just rumbling/vibrating and real feedback which would be a locked up wheel or a huge counterforce if you jam against something or no counterforce at all when you are on a slippery surface/lose grip and stuff like that. No reason to be rude.
  15. i read something that consoles dont have them yet.. not sure if all or specific ones tho
  16. No you dont have to actually run 4k, that said, on 1080p you hardly see any differences.
  17. This is not about if its "easier" just to not buy a car because you dont like to juggle the costs and stuff. Its just not really logical. If you wouldnt be able to make money from racing with sponsors and price money no one would bother with racing. If you buy this game later at a point where everybody already maxed the best car in every category you could still race with upgrades turned off. As for the adjustment, i read it twice now on this forum just to link the repaircost do your "clean driving status" which is pretty much the best idea. It reward clean driving as much as possible and dri
  18. SirDriftalots confirmed for Troll. There is no risk or reward when you simply cant make any money from driving a bought car. At the time you leveled it as far as 50 so you get the last upgrade it already costs more to repair than what you can win. Even worse when you race with less oponents as the winnings go down by that too. So you have to rebuy, relevel and reupgrade with money you dont have because the car got too expensive to drive to begin with. And that is at the lowest class already (Touring C). I cant even begin to imagine what it would be like at cars that set you back a half milli
  19. When i read something like this i get really bad headache. Looking at a POSSIBLY implementing something you already had in so many past games with the exact same engine.. same goes with the repair costs and upgrades from bought cars online which is obviously broken but you are just DISCUSSING it. I think you are doing a good job here with the communication but some times.. argh.
  20. I think either hes just trolling or he hasnt really played online / with the same car for "long". Because what he is saying makes no sense at all.
  21. Only played touring until yesterday. Was on white for very long. Started streetracing and BAM... its unbelieveble how the idiot-quota increases as soon as the cars start sliding a little bit more. I went to yellow in like 3 races and its not even my fault. Im just trying to stay on the damn track when those crashkiddies are going full berserk. Breaks? wtf is that, ill just use that car in front of me.. Its really hard to stay calm with stuff like that going on. Most of the times revenge is not even worth it tho because pretty much everyone and his mother runs the games with 5 car resets..
