    Does XP have any bearing on team offers?

    Does the competition get stiffer as you move up the career ladder? If not, I only see 2 options for playing thru a career: 1) crank the difficult way up to the point you are having to battle for mid pack in a backmarker, grinding for xp with no hope of landing a better ride in the foreseeable future OR 2) ratchet the difficulty down to the point you can blow the field away in a back marker car like you are the 2nd coming of Ayrton Senna! Is this how F1 2013's career mode works? I have been seriously considering picking that up but I'm not interested if the career mechanics prevent you from having a semi realistic career arc.

    Experimented with going down to hard, and just as I suspected I am now a racing god - qualified a full second faster than the field in an Intel car. Not even close to a challenge.

    This is my situation/frustration exactly.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one with questions/concerns!

    Feels a lot more like a mindless xp grind than a realistic career arc to me, in other words.

    I don't like this. If u over perform with a lesser team, better offers should come along next season. As u stretch further and further up the career ladder away from where you are a proven commodity, offer quality should degrade accordingly. As it stands now it seems as though massive amounts of grinding will be involved in getting better offers (which is a bummer for people like me playing @ a high difficult where good finishes are really out of reach without better team offers)

    Thanks for the feedback. It all sounds kinda lame, as I was really hoping for an f1 style career where your performance is closely tied to offer quality.

    That's interesting - what is your XP modifier?  I'd be curious if maybe you are in the opposite situation where you are racking up the team goal achievements but not as much XP (i.e. the opposite of me, who is struggling to meet goals but racking up XP!) Perhaps I just have an unrealistic expectation of how quickly better team offers will come along? Do you mean what XP bonus I gain from difficulty settings? If so, it's at 42%. I play on Very Hard difficulty with assists off bar ABS. Still though I only get offers from the low end teams. Yeah, that's what I mean.  Interesting - that's right in the same neighborhood as me (I think mine is around ~46%).  So you are racking up the achievements (meaning meeting team/driver goals) AND racking up loads of XP and still not getting better offers?  That's not encouraging!

    Anyone have any ideas on this?
  11. I'm curious if XP has any bearing on team offers?  I'm asking because I have been playing against "Very Hard" AI with basically all assists turned off.  I have good reason to believe I am a very good match for the AI @ this difficulty level, because when I get into a race where the vehicles are all equally spec'd (like that "Caterham Cup" interlude in the Eibach Formula C series, for instance), I am right up there matching lap times with the race leaders. Of course in the other races where I'm in more of a back marker car (early in my career), I have to scrape & claw to remain in mid pack - which is awesome & exactly how I would want career mode to play out, but my problem is I rack up the XP like crazy (b/c of my difficulty being cranked up so hard), but it's hit & miss on hitting my driver/team goals in any given season.  I've noticed my offers to this point in my career have been very static (i.e. same back marker teams offering every season/series) and I'm guessing that's because I'm hit & miss on attaining my driver/team goals despite my XP going up very quickly? Does anyone know if my assumption is correct that offers are more bound to team/driver goals than they are to XP?  If that is indeed the case, I would love to see XP play more of a factor, as I think that would make for a more realistic career arc (scraping to finish mid-pack for a back marker team would get you noticed & picked up by a faster team).   I really don't want to set the AI difficulty down to "Hard", because I'm guessing I will be able to smoke the AI at that level once I start getting offers with faster teams.
