    The Game Thread!

    Either 46 or 87. I'd rather have 11 but that damn Perez already has it :p What team is everyone going for? Reckon I'm gonna start with McLaren. I'm starting with Renault - should be a challenge to win the title with them. Also, probably going to use 82 but I haven't really made my mind up fully. Can't wait til Massa retires and 19 is free. 97 will probably be quite common so I wont be using that, maybe 66?

    The Game Thread!

    I've raced without aids for a little while now, probably since I did league racing way back in 2011. The issue for me having just jumped back into it is being consistent. Right now I am capable of setting competitive laps against pro AI (It's with a mod, so i think its expert - the one below legend without the mod) but I make too many little errors right now. I'm driving a Toro Rosso to be fair though, and its not a good car in 2012. I was quite proud of my podium (3rd) in China in changing conditions. Probably one of the best races I've ever done. The weird thing for me was I've raced on Forza and other games without most aids for ages, but I could just never get along with the F1 games without certain aids because the games just felt wrong. Particularly F1 2013. But since F1 2014 the physics have just started feeling better and it's more like I can actually feel and see how the car reacts to my inputs and that's made it better when I've turned the aids off, and made it easier to be consistent each lap :) I'm currently racing as Vettel on 2015's career mode, last race was Sochi, I won with a 19 second lead over Hamilton with the game set to it's hardest possible, no aids, cockpit view, legend AI, a mod that cranks up damage sensitivity, and another mod that reduces grip by 50% (I think) when you run off circuit. Problem is that every race is like that :p I don't have the motivation to league race any more so I'm super hoping the Ultimate AI really are ultimate lol. I mainly stopped using aids purely for the league racing I was doing at the time, I actually found the F1 games were fine without the aids compared to say Gran Turismo or Project CARs now. I always play racing games without aids now. I don't know what it is about 2012 now, it feels so unstable with a Toro Rosso - might just be the set up, don't know though.  I hate situations like that, its absolutely no fun demolishing AI every race.  Why don't you league race? I always thought it was the best part of F1 2011 for me. The league I was in actually wanted to ban aids for the last season I was gonna do with them, but there was still like half the guys on the grid who used auto gears so it wasn't really something that could be done without putting half the grid at a disadvantage.For me though bud, it all depends on the game. There's some that just feel awful without aids, and some that feel so so much better :) It really isn't dude, I'm hoping ultimate are at least on or close to my pace, but I'll still race it either way :p I loved league racing for a while, but I was doing it on Xbox 360 and having to use a game capture thing which 75% of the time was fine, and 25% of the time would corrupt footage lol. I started getting into PC gaming after a while though and the guys in the league were all going for Xbox One, but I never joined a PC league because I couldn't imagine racing anybody but the guys in that league. Also I race with a pad, it's embarrassing to admit that even though I could probably beat a lot of wheel guys ;) Also I'm lazy now lol. League racing is easily the best form of online racing though, I'd more than happily recommend anybody who's interested to just go for it :) I could never use a pad, I'm absolutely useless with one now :p And yeah I'd recommend it to anyone, I might well join one for 2016 - I'll have to see though.

    Not as far as I know I haven't seen any although I've not been looking for VR stuff. Although personally I'm looking forward to this career mode even more so now after seeing Aarava's vids on it. This career mode looks the best of the ones they've ever released. I'm genuinely so hyped for it, haven't been this excited since 2010 - and that was the first game since 2006 for me :p  I like the fact you can choose your team mate, I like the look of the RnD stuff, the helmet and number customisation look great - it all looks really good. My only hope now is that they have made good AI, and that the difficulties are closer together (In 2012 they were 4 seconds a part :/). Oh, and that the SC is more common, I always love a SC.  And it's less than a month away :D  Well they have added an extra difficulty level this year above Legend which is called Ultimate so we'll have to see how that plays out. Although I personally won't be playing at that level I think it could be good for those that like a more hard core feel to their races. I'm like you I'm pretty hyped up for it as well can't wait to get my hands on it. It's starting to look like this could be CM best ever F1 game to date perhaps even superceding 2010 assuming they can successfully deliver on what they've promised. TBH I liked 2012's AI in fact I like racing against the AI in that game more than any of the games so if the AI is similar to how the 2012 one is I'll be very happy. But yeah I heard there was a bit of a big split between some of the difficulty levels. But as long as they don't do a 2013 and end up just closing them up and making the easier difficulties too hard for those that like them the way they are I don't think it'll be too bad. Judging by the fact that they've added an extra difficulty setting I don't think they'll make that mistake again because to me this is what CM should have done originally add to  the gam not take away from it because if you take the easy levels too far out of people's comfort zones you lose the pick up and play accessibility of the game. One of the things I like most about CM's racing games is that they do have a good pick up and play accessibility to them. What they really need is a slider, like in project cars. That way I can pretty much choose what time the fastest car can hit and I can make it realistic to where my car is in the order. I have too many races where I'm either much faster and win or too slow and end up with a train all race.  I liked 2012s AI, I like the realism mods AI even better though, they're so good, they actually fight for position hardcore. Yeah I agree a slider would be betterbut even though CM don't have them in their games I don't think CM do too badly with the difficulty settings though as they aer pretty evenly split I think based on my observations. What they ne3ed to do they have been doing though I think for the most part and when they have made mistakes such as the large gaps between the settings of 2012 and over aggressiveness of 2013 they have at least attempted to correct it. It's just that for 2012 going into 2013 they chose the wrong way to attempt to correct it because they should have added the extra difficulty setting then not play around with the existing settings and screwed up the easier settings which is ultimately what did happen and caused even more problems. I've always been one of those unfortunate people that was a little off of Legend (2011 legend anyway) but too fast for the difficulty below that - with assists off anyway. A slider would be perfect or just more difficulties that are around a second a part, but that would be easier with a slider IMO. Hopefully something in 2016 suits me, I've been practising in 2012 as I've not played one of the F1 games since 2013, I'm a little rusty in terms of pace atm :p

  8. Came 3rd in competitor and team tables - decent. Better than I expected and also just 34 points off of the winner.  Well done @RevolvingPrawn :p

  10. Meh, only 61 - certainly not enough to win. Thanks for organising everything @fIsince08  this year though, it's been good :D And good job @Chadwick8505 - we did pretty well in the team standings :) It would be pretty cool to see some stats of the season if you have time/motivation to do it - like the highest score, lowest score, highest scoring race, lowest scoring race etc.
