  1. Yeah I'm aware of that. I mean, I've been modding games all my life. The point is, we shouldn't need to do this, we keep paying to beta test every year. We keep paying a premium game for only a few skins update and a couple of tracks that can perfectly be just a DLC like Montecarlo on Dirt 3. This game carries the same problems since F1 2010, it's like they just take that base game with the same database.bin file and don't bother to even look that Williams has a Maclaren engine or there's like 90% to rain even in Texas. It's a bad joke already. I don't even know why I bother anymore, this will
  2. This was always an issue in EVERY F1 game. If you have rain last laps, you will be passed unless you can block the track.  How the rain middle race works in EVERY F1? Count 3 laps. First 2 laps you'll see rain pouring down but you and AI will be racing at same pace, third lap track "gets wet" and you have to enter, AI won't. You put inters tires and you might have a chance against AI. If you don't go that lap, you'll race half of the lap on ice while AI will keep driving as if nothing is happening, they race like they are on dry.  Mind you I'm racing 25% of the race, so I don't know
  3. Halfway in the race spotter says "there's chance of light rain in about 5 minutes".  Granted it will rain with 3 laps left.  You have a few racers behind you waiting for you to make a mistake, you are giving your best to do your race when the rain start to pour down, first lap nothing happens, second lap we all seem to be 1 second slower, the last lap? My car naturally can't drive in wet conditions on soft tires, however AI drives like nothing happens. I'm really tired of this stupid sheet, this happens in every F1 game... Stop already, test your damn game and don't give me the "we
  4. "quality testing"  I seriously doubt about the meaning of quality there. I would do a search but I think that every Codemaster consumer (I own just about every racing game from them) knows that every latest game from Dirt to Grid and F1 has this corrupt save game problem, EVERY.DAMN.GAME.ALWAYS.  Why? One would think that after 2 or maybe 3 games they'd learn, it doesn't seem to be the case.  But after a few disappointments I decided that I don't want to buy any more DLC, and since I think this might be the end of the Grid series (seriously, what else can they do? this is just f
  5. First, I like to play single player and I can't really play much multiplayer due to family and work, so if your only contribution is "that's why I play multiplayer" I've read that and doesn't add much to the topic. So with that out of the way, the topic.  So the team asks you to finish the race without a scratch and to have the fastest lap. This happens in Tourism cars mostly, so the first race you qualify first and the first objective can be made unless the second (usually a Ravenwest car) throws himself at your car just to make the turn and fly away like nothing happens because you kno
  6. I think the races do get a little bit harder yes but one thing I have noticed and commented on in another thread is the races are definitely longer as I was doing group 2 endurance with 24minute races in x3 length and it moved up to 30minutes for group 1 I don't think it gets more "difficult". Races do get longer, my first run was on the normal racing length so it was 8, 10 and 12. As for the difficulty it's always the same, Ravenwest are the best guys followed by K&N and then the yellow ones (Kicker?) The rest are just there to make your life miserable.  I did notice that if you
  7. I'm ok with tire wear as long as it's fair. Those Ravenwest guys are a pain, they don't seem to be affected by tire wear. This is the part that gets me, there are several places where you have to accelerate while turning like first turn at Brands where it's also a bit bumpy, that's always a recipe for spinning out when your tires are on orange; however you can see them AI going away like nothing, while you have to cut throttling they just floor it. Also, always night time? Really? That' lazy? I don't think that there is any endurance event that start and end at night without daylight. Why not
  8. First, I like to play single player, and no, I can't play too much multiplayer because time restrictions that would make me pause the game too much at some points.  Second, I've been playing racing games since 90s, I have all the Codemaster racing games, this does not make me a great driver, but I know how to play these games. Having said that, Endurance is stupidly unfair. How so? Well for starters trying to throttle while in a big turn most of the time results in spinning out of control while AI ahead of you runs away like nothing and the one behind pushes you away since you are way too
  9. I've been to some tracks where if I PIT a Ravenwest, he ends up with a lap time 5 seconds faster than me, effectively ruining my chance at getting XP for the faster lap. Also tanks to the stoopid team mate you get it's hard to finish ahead those guys like ever. 
  10. Hard copy: 50$Digital: 49.99$I'm sorry, digital people should earn that money. Oh yes they give you the pdf if you want, saving trees and all of that. It doesn't matter. Why would I pay the exact same thing when I get more stuff like a box, a dvd, sometimes nice extras like the boxes of blizzard games?  On the AI topic, I hate AI, mostly the usual pair of seconds guys, I really don't like when devs only way to counter your skills is to use the catch up AI; I can't get any fast lap because they usual best second (ravenwood mostly) when starts at the back they make some impossible -2 second
