    And there you go. It's GRID, the company's going to slap a couple of DLCs and updates on it and leave it alone. It's at that point, now.

    Goodbye :)

    Good luck buddy, the support you've given us is incredible, and I'm sure there won't be another person like yourself to represent Codemasters in the future. I'm sure your next step will be a great one, thanks for everything you've done for the community.

    Grid Autosport Mulltiplayer

    I've heard of the console versions having a very small player base (Correct me on this guys, I'm not a console player myself), but the PC/Steam version is perfectly fine. If you're on PC, try setting your Download Location settings (Steam -> Settings -> Downloads -> Download Region) to UK - London. It's one of, if not, the most populated servers for the game right now. Alternatively, also if you are on Steam, check us out. http://steamcommunity.com/groups/gridautosportracers# I am one of many admins for this group, and we host events every other day for everyone to participate in. We've always got room for more players. (I promise I'm not trying to advertise)

    Personally, at this point I don't care whether or not more information is given out. The only reason it'll ever matter to me at this point is if there's going to be a direct sequel to this game that contains all the same teams. If that isn't the case, there's really no reason to elaborate on a game that's over half a year old now.

    My public apology.

    I believe I have PGR2 with me, and even if I didn't, I'd buy both games.

    My public apology.

    imho one of the best racing games ever made... the true rank leaderboards, team champs/events and nordeschleife in the RT12 :) It's 7 years old now... I believe the rank matches are dead but there are still people playing it online in custom races. You should treat yourself for christmas ! Better yet, I wish people would jump on XBConnect or something and game up on PGR2. That's my favorite racing game of all time. As for the RT12, though, I was never a RUF fan. Class B would be either the Jaguar XJ220S or the Ferrari GTO Evoluzione. Both beautiful cars, fun to drive and tough to master. I'll grab the game eventually, and when I do, we should gather a group and have some jam sessions. I need PGR back in my life.

    xbox one

    @spackmanstephen There were a plethora of problems at the launch of GAS and consoles arguably got the short end of the stick. The PC version has had the quickest, best support compared to the other platforms, but I honestly haven't had a game breaking problem since I got it at launch (I preordered it). I guess I have been more fortunate than others, but the people that have had problems are justified in their complaints, though I feel as if the complaints have been a little too persistent.

    My public apology.

    I'd have to pick up the game again, as well as a new Live subscription. Maybe when I get a new job it'll happen, as I miss that game dearly.

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

    All the best wishes to the company and especially yourself, @Loore. I still want me Intel computer, but that's beside the point. Thank you all for the great games, and I look forward to the future for Codemasters. [:
  10. Well I joined you for this one, I'm up for any of 'em. :)

    How to block wallriders etc online?

    It won't. And if it does, hallelujah praise Codemasters/Intel/Whoever I don't care, my trust is dwindling at the moment. In any case, the people that end up intentionally doing the wide turns are usually the bad players anyway. Just laugh at them, beat them and move on.

    How to block wallriders etc online?

    Time to ban everyone from your server, because the number of people who mess up the first turn at Algarve is atrocious. I wouldn't complain too much about Algarve and RBR because most of the time, that's people making mistakes. As for Bathurst, just get in front of them and stop on the wall, problem solved.
  13. You're a smart man, you should pull a Shakes and do Touring Cat A on Chicago. I had to do 10 laps of that for a racing league and I didn't enjoy any of it.
  14. Thank you, I might go and try to improve it again sometime but that car is awful to drive. There's still a decent bit of time I could make up.

    My public apology.

    Never thought I'd agree with you, but holy hell. PGR was my favorite racing series and I'm disappointed that it never gets put into much racing discussion.

    Little, but big things that kinda bug me

    Pay less attention to that bridge and more attention to the stupid portions of the road that throw you into a spin.

    Eibach Challenge Winners

    One of my good friends was emailed promptly after the event ended and he's had his prize for a while. For me, however, I never got the initial email, but about a week and a half ago I got an email stating that they had not received a reply for me. I responded, and my car wasn't applicable for the top prize. However, they offered me equal value of merchandise instead, which should be arriving right around now as they said. Intel Challenge, on the other hand, is a different story. Almost four months and I'm STILL waiting on my computer. I'm honestly concerned that it's not going to happen at this point, and I can't get any clarity from Codemasters.
  18. Upgrades don't work. I've heard that running a custom lobby with upgrades on & tuning off makes them work, but I didn't see any difference then either. It shouldn't be a problem.
  19. Amphydoodle

    There are more players on Grid 2 than GAS. Why???

    Not rubbing anything in, just simply stating tuning isn't an unfair advantage.

    There are more players on Grid 2 than GAS. Why???

    F1 GT? Tuning for understeer? I found that car to be stiff enough as it is, I want that thing to get more loose in corners. I still think the difference in tuning is so little that it doesn't give someone an unfair advantage. I could go into a lobby with an untuned car and beat just about anyone who has tuned cars.

    Eh, tuning makes little to no difference. Also, upgrades don't work. It's really not as skewed as you think it is.

    Perfect Mount Panorama - Lola B12/80

    ^ This. Time and time again my friends ask me why I'm still racing when I always beat the particular group I play with, and why I don't think the game is boring yet. Every race of mine is an attempt to beat my own records, to see if I can up the ante more than I already have. That's the fun of it for myself. @alexandr3um http://steamcommunity.com/id/Amphydoodle/  Shoot me a request and I'll race whenever you want to.

    Perfect Mount Panorama - Lola B12/80

    It's ironic how people are still whining about the wallride to win the prize when we still would've won without. We even topped the Jarama leaderboard and there's no advantage you can take there. As it stands, neither SuperSic or I use the wallride in public lobbies. We never have and we never will. I was actually one of the latest people to wallride because others had done it and I'm not going to risk the prize for that, especially when wallriding was permitted in GRID 2's Rockstar Challenge. I don't condone cheating in public races against other people, but at the end of the day, this isn't a professional league game, this isn't a career, and this won't ruin my future. If someone's going to wallride and I'm going to potentially lose a thousand dollars because of it, I'm going to make sure I keep that spot.

    Happy to Finally Beat Ravenwest on Very Hard

    Wheels are fun, but the keyboard is just the best way for me to play. Unless it's the Caparo T1, then I gotta bring out my 360 controller. I haven't played against the Very Hard AI in quite a while but they are a decent challenge, so props for making it happen. My experiences with Very Hard are basically just watching Nathan McKane get a glorious catch-up boost and sitting a couple of seconds behind me the whole race, randomly switching between losing tremendous pace and making unbelievable turn speeds. Oh, how wonderful the AI are. </3
