  1. I would like any new GRID game to be nothing like GRID 2 and to be properly finished and working on release and not slightly half a***d. GAS would be perfect if the damage system made any sense, upgrades worked and the online playlist was expanded to include all tracks for each discipline.

  2. If this were Forza, the behaviour of some people and teams on Xbox would see online bans being handed out left right and centre. Unfortunately, CM doesn't seem to have the resources or inclination to police what happens on line. There are regrettably massive childish vendettas going on that often spoil the game for people who just want to race. Some people's posts on this forum make themselves out to be victims, when in fact they are the ones who are aggressive and continually escalate minor incidents into targeted crashfests, then there's retaliation etc etc ad nauseum. They know who they are and everyone else online knows who they are, but they seem to think their behaviour is OK and there seems to be no end to it. I just stay out of the way, race clean and ignore them. It's a shame everyone can't do this, but some grown ups can't seem to help acting like little children.

  3. Can't we all just get along and forgive and forget? All this 'I'm going to wreck them because they wrecked me', 'You're a dirty driver' ,'No you're a dirty driver' and team vendettas is totally pointless and is ruining the game for those who just want to race clean. I've had good races with everyone on this thread. I've also been subjected to being constantly wrecked by a certain team because of this too. Despite having nothing to do with any of the incidents mentioned. There's huge amounts of childishness going on on all sides. People just need to grow up. It's only a game and I'd like to enjoy playing it without knowing I'll be deliberately targeted by certain players if I end up in a lobby with them. I'd also like to see an end to individual/team revenge wrecking by everyone. If people want to play dirty I just ignore them and try to beat them clean.

  4. What he said. I'd also like a full technical explanation too. It's not even kb it's just bytes. The bits of data that control the the car type and tracks for each car type will be absolutely tiny. As in a few characters each. What your devs are telling you just doesn't ring true @Loore
    I assume PC users will be able to look at the file that controls the playlists. It can't be much different for consoles. Would anyone care to take a look and show us the relevant bits of the file please? You've got PC version too haven't you @RTAnoskills?

  5. I'm not asking for an expansion of the play list as your programmers seem think this might be problematic (though I doubt that a few extra bytes would cause a problem), just a few of the current tracks to be changed as they suck. This would not take any extra memory.

  6. Now we've (hopefully) got the patch for freezig issues on the way, how about getting some changes to the online playlist. If CMs coders are really, really, really, really adamant that the playlist can't be expanded (I would like to hear that they have at least tried it though), then there's definitely a few tracks that can be swapped for better ones in Touring at least. I will post my suggestions at some point.

    Some ppl have mentioned custom liveries as being the cause....

    As I've said before. I don't use them and have only had one freeze ever. A few disconnections though, but not many.  So maybe people should try not using custom liveries until we get a patch.

  8. If they revert it to the previous patch, people will have corrupt game save issues, which I think is far worse than freezing. As I said in a previous post, I reckon it's related to custom liveries. I don't use them and have only ever had one freeze playing pretty much every day for a couple of hours. I do  get disconnected from the session sometimes, but this is pretty rare.

  9. I haven't really had an issue with the Freezing. Yes, its frozen a couple of times, but I don't know if any one thing is the cause of that. I bought a little $5.00 fan to blow on my Xbox and since then it hasn't been too bad. It does seem to be something to do with the Graphics/Liveries. 
    I don't use any custom liveries and I've only had a few freezes playing pretty much every day since the dodgy patch, so maybe it is a custom livery thing. More common is getting a lost connection from session error, but again this is quite rare for me.

  10. I'm somewhat skeptical about the reason given for consoles not getting the playlist update, but if we're not getting it, I'm hoping for at least a change in the combos. I'm sure there'll be a patch for the freezing/disconnection issues, but not expecting particularly soon given past form. Just read about the extra championships saving issue. That's bizarre.

    As you've said that consoles might no be getting the extended playlist, how about changing it up a little as a consolation (see what I did there?). Most people I guess play touring. I think there's too many reverse tracks. Bathurst is OK in reverse, but it would make sense to have the Super Tourers on the normal direction track. I would also like Spa, Istanbul, Jarama and both Brands Hatch tracks too in the right direction for Cat A and Miglias. They pretty much suck in reverse. It would be nice if you could get Mount Tremblant, COTA and Red Bull full circuits in there somewhere too.
