  1. I can imagine the FPS issue won't effect the console gamers, due to everyone having the same hardware and frame rates being locked, and whilst I did play a lot of multiplayer on my 360, I've not raced online on my PC.

    Did both these issues get patched for the PC?

    Regarding the FPS issue = It was improved, but not fixed.

    Regarding the "All Equal" issue = It was fixed in one patch, then re-introduced into another patch (how on earth someone could forget to roll up previous patches into a new one is beyond me). Was fixed later on.

    This was several months into the game though. I don't think the multiplayer community recovered and online was reduced to mario kart style gameplay because people just couldn't be bothered.

  2. And closing the forums has nothing to do with the quality of F1 2013. You pay for F1 2013, you get F1 2013, you're not paying for the forums. If you want to talk about issues of F1 2013 then do, but if the most frustrating part is something that isn't to do with the game it seems you don't have a lot to complain about.

    I understand your comment but the point is the F1 Gaming Community were very active and provided  a LOT of feedback to CM to apply patches. I remember from one thread someone mentioned that the "All Equal" mode was broken. CM initially denied it. Then a massive influx of posters responded with videos, times, evidence until CM were forced to acknowledge it.

    And what was our reward? Removing all the evidence. Removing all our hard work without acknowledgement. Conveniently removing the primary method in which people complained and raised bugs for month after month, hoping people would just forget about it. 

    You mention split screen in your comment so I'll assume you're a console gamer. Did you ever participate in online leagues? A lot of us did and bugs that did not make cars equal and higher FPS for quicker lap times made it pointless because it was not fair.

    Most of the glaring bugs affected PC players more.

  3. Having seen the news feed about the upcoming F1 game it reminded me of the glaring and awful issues that existed in 2013. Some of which included:

    - Save game bug re-emerged

    - "All Equal" mode online didn't make the cars equal

    - More FPS = faster lap times

    And so on. The F1 community, as endearing as we are (chuckle), we took time, patience and a lot of effort to bring these issues to CM's attention. Some of which were originally dismissed, then irrefutable evidence suggested otherwise which forced CM's hand.

    Some of the issues were fixed with a patch, and then re-introduced in a later patch. It was a balls up.

    But the most frustrating part of this, the thing that still makes me so p****d off - They closed the forums for over 6 months. Who on earth project managed that?

    Also, how convenient was it that CM removed all the evidence and heated threads about reoccurring and glaring bugs on a product which was obviously not tested.    

    Any sane person who wanted to replace a forum on a popular site would have a migration plan between one and another. Not take it down completely and have its replacement as an afterthought.

    But no worries, we're just your customers.

    Please don't balls this game up as well. Actually test it.
