    THE GRID AUTOSPORT INITIAL IMPRESSION THREAD

    Can someone explain this one for me, plz. I was in a time attack and 3rd off. I passed the 2 in front of me, stayed in front of them and crossed the line first. The 2 who had started before me came in 1st and 2nd, just as they had started . . .and with a faster time than me. I am not suffering with lag so how can I pass and stay in front yet they get faster times ?

    The 'I purchased Autosport' Thread

    Originally, I had pre-ordered from game but changed to Steam when they offered the "black" edition with £3 off if you owned Grid 2 (£26.99) . . . glad I did, lol . .

    Where are everyone?

    Same here, I'd hoped I could have made money in SP but unfortunately not. What I did find a bit of a hoot was I deliberately stayed out the back of a race without once hitting anything and at the end of the race was charged over £3000 in repairs ????? However, I had already decided I was going to take the simple-minded village idiot line and if the driving physics of touring cars was to my liking I'd suffer any other game shortcomings without complaint . . .or, almost no complaint, lol . . .

    The 'I purchased Autosport' Thread

    at the moment everything seems positive but because only the US guys have access to it for now it's still early days. We have to wait until after the game has gone worldwide  before we can fully judge whether it's a success or failure. I'm leaning towards success at the moment but as I said it's still early days. I'm waiting until official launch on friday but don't imagine Europe isn't already playing the game, I'd imagin there are torrents everywhere It kinda grows on you, lol . . . YEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAAAA

    One major complaint about the tracks...

    So does that apply to the track leaderboards also ?? I'l have the full info on Time Trial soon, but yes, track specific leaderboards are there. Thanks, Loore . . . Fantastic game, for me, and many others, you have come up trumps, and the only detractors I can see have the usual subjective complaints which could be shifted into any forum . . I think many are basing this on a new game and missing the whole point, one based in the history of 6 years ago when the gridders first appeared . . .we have waited a long time for Grid Autosport, and for most of us it delivers what we have been after. Time Trial, streaming text chat, spectate available when we join a lobby and not just if we joined the session from the start, would do very nicely to keep this party going . .  ~O)

    THE GRID AUTOSPORT INITIAL IMPRESSION THREAD

    All these complaints about wheels could never be the fault of the user, could it ? Assiemodis, McRoss, Camarimore etc., all guys on our site using G27, not one complaint so come on over and they will sort you. Love the game, no complaints, whatsoever . . . Oh! I could find a load of petty, subjective faults, but why give my good buddy, Loore, a hard time when the guy has delivered on a promise . . .fantastic game . .just goes to show what can be made when you hold off on the kiddy gimmicks . . .the more I play the more I feel like we have what we wanted . .Grid 1 with updated cars and gfx . . ~O)

    Time Attack is something different. Due to technical problems the Traditional Time Trial was not in the launch game but will come via a free patch . . .this is what Loore has promised. ~O)

    THE GRID AUTOSPORT INITIAL IMPRESSION THREAD

    It wouldn't have been Time Trial, due to technical problems TT isn't in the game yet and will come in a free patch a little later . . ~O)

    THE GRID AUTOSPORT INITIAL IMPRESSION THREAD

    They listened to the old gridders. We wanted recycled for Grid not forever getting ridiculous kiddy gimmicks. The game is a perfect step backward in the right direction . . . and let's be patient, my good buddy, Loore, will deliver the goods, it just takes a little time . . ~O) ~O)

    Autosport multiplayer "My Vehicles"

    You are either a mature chap like me or just different than your standard "want it now" generation. Either way I totally agree. The whole point of the multiplayer set up us to provide a sense of progression and personally I'm loving it :) The rammers are also learning that they can't gimp people like on Grid 2. Thoroughly enjoying the multiplayer. Gonna always have something to spend my cash on. I'll admit I had been worried about the collisions but ... they're very forgiving for the sorts of bumps/knocks that are commonplace amongst competitive drivers. Gonna hope the online lasts. Is heaps better than Grid 2. I've only done about 8 online races but am perfectly happy with what looks like collision forward, the resistance of the cars to not spin, to spin only when hit at the right spot, etc . . I could be wrong but on many tracks we are near the actual width where in Grid 1 the track to car seemed to give the track a much wider space. For those of us who watch the early am touring series programs on TV GAS seems to have gotten it spot on, which is why we now seem to be more crowded . . . not sure about how many cars on track now but wasn't Grid 1 12 cars ?

    One major complaint about the tracks...

    Lazy is a harsh word and a bit unfair, our level designers worked flat out to get you all those locations, the majority of which we were told we "had to have them". I don't think we've ever unfairly promoted the game for having more content than it does. We've always said 22 locations with over 100 routes. Then when we revealed the full track list we detailed those routes, reversed included. It's an interesting discussion though so will be watching this thread to see how it pans out. You told us we would have Time Trial, Loore, and it isn't there ?????

    Autosport multiplayer "My Vehicles"

    Am I wrong in thinking that too many are on a bum's rush to get everything done like yesterday ? After waiting for 6 years this is the nearest we have gotten to Grid 1 so taste every morsel . . . more tea ? ~O)
  19. CM could learn something from The Crew where there are measures to effectively control those whose fun is through ruining the game for others.

    One major complaint about the tracks...

    In Grid 1 we had all reverse tracks and no-one complained . . so, we spend 6 years chasing a successor, get it, and then complain about something which was in the original . .crazy world . .  Forwards, backwards . .great fun . . *-:)

    Just bought the season pass

    Season pass is like buying Premium in BF 3 and 4, and much better than other dlc on launch day like with Grid 2 . .for me it was a no brainer, Touring is all I wanted it to be so bought on the strength of that . . ~O)

    Loore, I have posted a thread in the "New to Forums" area, will you move it to a Grid area, please.

    THE GRID AUTOSPORT INITIAL IMPRESSION THREAD

    Doing the SP Touring Cars I thought it nice to see tracks from Grid 2. Then on a track where I hadn't noted which one I suddenly thought, "this is very familiar", all the years since Grid 1 and I recognized the whole layout of Istanbul . . .this just gets better. I have heard some complaints about cars still sliding too much in DD and maybe some other disciplines but I bought this game for Touring first, and Touring is fine so can live with any minor problems elsewhere . . .
