    F12019 - Next patch wishes

    Also please fix it so that Weber doesn't completely destroy his teammate Verstappen and Butler completely destroy his teammate Hamilton. Put them on par at most but hell you have two rookies coming in completely outclassing the two biggest talents on the grid.

    Do something different next year.

    The 2 year thing is bull...they might've had 1 resource on it for the first year but if you look at the amount of changes/additions a series like NBA 2k does year to year there is no way Codies spent 2 years on this. Even MLB The Show who is known to have a incredibly small development team produces way more changes/additions in their game annually. The logic by Codemasters was simply they had to release F1 earlier because they have GRID coming in September so if F1 released in August as usual they'll risk the games interfering in each other sales i.e. instead of F1 selling 1 million and GRID selling 1 million they might have a case of both selling 750k to put it in simple terms. So they decided to release F1 early...but they realized with the passionate community they have they risk upsetting their fans for undermining the F1 franchise by giving it a shorter dev cycle. So what is the most reasonable thing to do? Sell it as having a 2 year dev cycle...and they win by creating more excitement and deflecting an upset fan base. F1 2019 has a lot of issues and I'm starting to lose all hope. Just watching Ben's youtube career mode series has huge issues especially with AI strategy. And don't get me started on the same issues appearing year after year even if they fixed it with a patch BOOM it is back with the new release.

    AI Strategy in races where weather changes from dry to wet or the other way around is so broken I'm considering turning variable weather off. Needs urgent attention. AI pace in wet weather is OP now...especially when it just starts raining they put in lap times that is so far out of reach it is a joke Fix transfers or at least give us a frequency slider or option Reduce R&D for both player and AI

    Regulation change for next year R&Ds

    Has anyone had a regulation change on a department they haven't invested heavily in? I'm at a point where I'm thinking that they are checking where the player is strong and do a regulation change on that department. In 2018 I focused only on reliability and engine upgrades...sure enough regulation change on both of those. Next season I did aero only...sure enough regulation change on aero only. Might be bad luck and coincidence but was just wondering.

    Team performance order after patch

    What a complete joke. They actually have Ferrari with the best aero package and Mercedes with the best engine LMFAO. Anyone that watched F1 this season would know it is the other way around.

    Big changes needed.

    Not sure if they changed it in a patch but when I created a LAN session and in the lobby selected 'ready up' I went straight to the session and could do laps to my hearts content.

    You can just create a LAN session by yourself if you want to work on setups for your multiplayer car

    Well the way I see it is if you play online you get: Empty lobbies Still laughable penalty system Even in lobbies with S safety ratings it is absolutely chaos and wreckage galore at the first corner. This might not be Codemasters' issue but if the penalty system worked and the safety rating was accurate this wouldn't happen. If you play offline career you get: Performance levels outdated AI strategy broken (90% of teams double stack their cars in dry to wet or wet to dry races losing an insane amount of time) Pit release is still not correct R&D is way too fast with the AI being so fast that eventually you'll drop to the bottom even if you only concentrate on performance upgrades Driver transfers is a complete joke...who in their right mind thought that the way it currently is will be realistic and/or up to customer satisfaction. Tyre carcass temps are only for the user player...so in essence it is a handicap. And then furthermore you get: Damage is still a joke. Last night I got hit from behind and my front wing got damaged...how in the hell is that possible. The HUD is still a mess...after how many years SC is not working for a lot of players I'd argue overall F1 CE was a much better rounded off product even though it had its issues. This game is broken. How many features is actually working 100%?

    I'm sorry but this game is broken. Regretting my purchase. People lambaste EA for their games but Codies' F1 series is by far the worst game series I've seen in regards to the same glitches carrying onto the next iteration. It baffles me there hasn't been an outcry in regards to AI strategy in wet to dry or dry to wet races. The AI 90% double stacks their drivers...losing an incredible amount of time and handing easy victories to the user. Check Ben's races at USA, Brazil etc. The quali sim times has been a problem for years...SC has been a problem for years and this year it is even non existent for some users. I just can't support this product anymore...it has been almost 3 weeks and they expect us to be excited for the performance update coming soon? Why wasn't this in at launch...the season didn't start in May. The cutscenes story like career mode which only lasts for 3 races in F2 is a complete joke. Why add it if it ends when you get to F1? Why not actually develop a full fledged mode where these cutscenes popup throughout your career. Still only yourself and the guy ahead/behind you in the position box...how many times have people requested they expand that. Why would anyone be connected to the actual F1 season if they raced in a midfield team and not knowing who is getting podium. Or being able to see the shock of Hamilton leading the championship but being outside of the top 10...we can't even create our own stories because we don't know what is happening with the other drivers. Even if you invest all your R&D points into actual upgrades instead of reliability, efficiency etc. you just can't keep up with the AI's pace of development. Eventually you'll slowly go down the pecking order because of this. Did they even test this? Last year almost every single Youtuber complained car development is too fast...what do Codies do? Make it ever faster. Great job. No news/twitter feed. No immersion in regards to the season. The driver transfers were an excellent opportunity for a rumor mill or news feed. Tyre carcass temps still only for user... There is no way in hell they worked on this for 2 years...unless they maybe put the one junior developer on the code for the first year to play around. I mean can they seriously not even add the official time-sheet designs? How long can that possibly take.
  10. Ok so for anyone that experienced the same. What happened was that eventually I found a lobby with two other players after trying for 3 days. Did the race and I saw my skill and safety rating went up one notch as if I just started the game...you know the small grey circle at the bottom. I then thought my ratings must've been reset. Discouraged I still enjoyed playing the game but wasn't keen to grind to A and S safety rating again. So last night I did the weekly event race and after that did 2 ranked races in order to at least get to C safety rating. Once I reached the stage to progress to C I was immediately put back to full silver and S safety rating. Have no idea what just happened or how and why...just glad I got my ratings back.

    I need help with difficulty

    2019 is definitely more difficult. 2018 I used to have AI on 92-94. With the minor testing in single grand prix weekend so far it seems I'm more at the 85-88 range.
  12. 2 nights ago I reached S safety rating and I'm about at 1700 silver skill rating. After doing so I quit to play something else and later came back to F1 2019. Now ever since I can't find any ranked lobbies with players...when I enter a lobby I'm all by myself. I've noticed that at the top right hand side of the screen and also when viewing my super license both the skill and safety rating doesn't seem to pull through and it is only a grey block with a stripe in it. I've been trying to access ranked lobbies for the past 2 nights but to no avail. Even unranked lobbies seem to be a bit dodgy as I try to join those that are still currently in 'lobby' state but when joining they are already midway through the race. It is sad because I'm holding out on career until the performance update drops and now don't have any way to play except time trial. Has anyone else experience this and hopefully find a way to fix this?
  13. Yeah same here. Waiting on the performance patch before starting career mode and running out of patience with the bumper cars of online. Hoping the patch will land soon
  14. This trophy is probably the most ******** and unfair I've ever encountered...
  15. Regardless if people think other user's should use the driving line, ABS etc. This is an issue, the racing line should adapt. I think it is a glitch of some sort as in rainy weather the line also doesn't seem to adapt for earlier and longer braking points even with ABS off.
