    Chat option in GRID Autosport!!

    The point is... Voice chat is way too easy to abuse...even more so in public servers. coupled with the fact that in grid2 it defaulted to on, could make your first race[ at least] a nightmare experience. once voice chat is turned off, we only have steam text chat to message on...which in itself is not as great as simple in game text chat is. chat can also be abused of course, but its much much less intrusive than distorted music or verbal abuse being constantly transmitted. If youve never experienced the voice abuse, then lucky ol you. if you have....i fail to see how you can miss this point.

    According to what Loore said up there then you are wrong. You can join a session mid-way, and choose a car....                                     "from a selection that fits in with the event in process" I guess there must still be a point where a late joiner joins sooo late that this isnt possible tho. Will this type of super-late joiner be able to race in, whatever' or not race at all remains a finer detail we dont yet know i guess.

    ah cmon guys, i had to try didnt i? After all, a free copy is a free copy and im sure there is some worth in this game for ol farts like me. Just like grid 2 had some thngs that i liked.... I did like the touring cars...i just coiuldnt use them online without gettin trounced big time by a road legal c63 or a nismo. 8O Loore..if you change your mind, or you find your product requires some additional [and free] stress testing, please...dont hesitate to ask me [and only me]

    ok thanks for the answers. Can i assume there will not be any live feeds before release? ps..id rather not assume 8D pps..id much rather there were live feeds..ya know, with devs and youself present, addressing hot topics and such....awarding free games and the like. can i get a free copy for suggesting? thanks! actually...will there be any give aways of any kind..ya know, all in the interests of marketing of course.

    Direct feed gameplay eh....sounds like it could be good. can i ask.. where can we see this....on twitch...or something similar? will it be a live feed or something pre-recorded? If live, will you be offering prizes to attendees?..like a free copy of GAS! when will you be showing the online goodies? Tanxverymoochlike [Edited out already answered items]

    What you want to see from GRID

    Well of corse its aimed at you...who else has derided grid2 [among other titles] so overtly and has just announced they have bought GAS mm? And you dont see whats been cast aside? well ok ill say it again a little more plainly. Its the history...the history of codies racing games since grid...im sorry to have to say this so bluntly, but since grid....codies racers have gone only one way...and thats the wrong way in my opinion. [ok dirt 2 was ok, but it wasnt as good as grid 1 or even dirt 1 imo] Yes thats my opinion, but im pretty sure im not the only one who thinks like that....and im pretty darn sure you have written pretty similar also. TL,DR: nutshell is that codies 'jumped the shark' after grid [but the titles keep comin so theres hope yet] You also mention history and GAS....what...all two weeks of it? or is it more, i dont know now, time...it flies so fast these days eh. Dont get me wrong here, im so hopin GAS will be a great game, but to purchase it now? No thank you sir....I need to await some decent first hand feedback from someone who has played the game before i commit. Dont happen to know any half decent racers who have bought in do ya? 8P

    What you want to see from GRID

    You dang well right on the money there. The last few games from CM was just too great a let down...they even killed grid1 to put salt in the wound 8( I'm all for changing my mind and all, but facts is facts and history is to be learned from....not cast aside like some seem to have done. But each to their own, power to you, i hope the game is good enough to warrant me purchasing it too....i sincerely do. But we been here before and im not going there again....id rather enjoy summer 8D

    I do! I read what ya sayin but i still need a demo.

    I see you all  talking in laps here. Its more about time for me...10 mins per race always seemed a good number. any longer and its kinda becoming endurance...which for me isnt fun. I wouldnt like to do 20 laps at a long lap circuit like say spa...if its about 2 mins a lap thats 40 mins.[conservative estimate] Thats way too long for me.
  15. Touring all the way. best sim races i ever taken part in...touring best races to watch on tv or IRL...touring and like someone else said...nothing wrong with a bit of bump n grind
  16. coll off is not the answer....coll off becomes TT for multiplayer imo. yes its fun, i did it meself lots in grid, but its no replacement for col fwd where you have to actually make a pass, not drive thru a ghost. coll off falls short of propper door to door racing where impact is possible and likely [in touring] unfortunately, if idiots do persist in GAS, then the treehouse mentality you refer to will become apparent. it worked before and will work again...it might be sad, but it is true.
  17. So you saying in custom the only one who can kick is the host? if so.... well then you just do it as we did in grid 1. an online, in-game community WILL form if the game is good. names will become known. good times will be had. the only downside of this [from grid1 days] is that the noob can become a little excluded as unknown names are sometimes immediately removed by the host or kickvote...whatever is in force.. As will be known names who crash and spoil be removed from the server also. good hosts will become as important as good gameplay.
  18. kick voting is back isnt it? thats both a deterrent and an answer imo. or is that just wishy-washy hearsay, i dunno, theres a lot of noise at the mo. Of course, if the old name switcheroo is gonna be as easy as it was in grid1, then even that wont help....but at least its a valiant effort.....if true.

    well, aside from all the glitz and glamour streams of you test driving the game against 'the wheel' etc, i would personally like to see how the multiplayer  lobby works with such details included as: how i choose a server how servers are grouped how many servers i can see are servers scrollable, searchable, filter-able [is that even a word?] from the lobby, what server options are visible to me how are servers named. A good lobby experience means i can choose my game server with a reasonable amount of confidence its going to suit my requirements. my requirements of a perfect server would be: its collision fwd voice chat is off its 5-10 laps damage is on tuning is disabled all gears are allowed Its touring car exclusive it has 3-5 rounds oh...and the ability to choose a car if i join the server while its in progress is really REALLY nice and the ability to MUTE voice if i join a server while its in progress is really....nono...REALLY REALLY nice. chat would be rather cool. if i joined a server and some of these options were not as so, i would leave..some i could handle so i would stay. But it would be really really annoying to... join an existing server thats already into a race. wait for that race to finish [how excruciatingly boring] next race starts and im in some default car voice is on [and i cant turn it off] gears are auto only damage is off alt-f4 repeat the above 2-3 times uninstall the game feel stupid 8D

    Regarding your comment here....this might be hinting at micro-transactions i dont know....can you confirm if there will be any micro-transactions of any kind in GAS? Or it it a one time purchase kinda game?

    Well this all looks promising dosent it? Like what ive heard and seen so far, but once bitten and all that. Its a shame that CM vibes towards a demo seem a little negative. Personally, i shall most definately be waiting for a week or two after release to get feedback from folk who dont work for CM about the game and how it is in the wild. Loore...can i ask you.....[pologies if im asking same things as others] 1] Are multiplayer cars linked in any way to single player cars in terms of performance? 2] Can all cars be accessed in multiplayer from the get-go...or will they need to be unlocked somehow first? 3] Before release, do you plan any streams covering 'boring' in game functions such as how the multiplayer lobby functions? 4] Before release, do you plan any streams at all? 5] what kind of people are your pre-alpha testers and how can i be one? 8D

    What you want to see from GRID

    Loore...seems like a good idea...give us the choice to choose setups or no. While on the point of choice, it would be nice if we could also choose the cars to use...not the TIER...the car or cars. or if not indiviual cars, then the dicipline of cars...like touring or GT1...as long as the disciplines are sorted accordingly. like they were in G1. It might be worth pointing out that the community i was part of in G1 days had a kind of 'code' It was like 'cannon'...Grid-cannon. When ebay cars [and hence the xml hack] were still in the game, this cannon dictated that we had to prove our 'equal footing' with a screenshot or video, showing the car we used, had less than 500 miles on the odometer. Less than 500 miles meant it absolutely HAD to be a stock car...stock as in bog-standard. All ebay cars had over 500 miles on them...so equality was 99% assured. The result of this equal footing means to us that the race we are about to have, has a higher potential to be a dam good race than otherwise wold be the case. Most of us want 5 laps of racing [or 5 -10 mins], nose to tail all the way...thats the target. The other end of the scale is the guy in first is 3 seconds ahead of the guy in second, who is 4 seconds ahead of the guy in third and so on. we dont want that race after race after race. compare real life F1 to Real life BTCC [or whatever its called these days] we want the BTCC style! we had it in G1 we lost it in G2 im gonna shush now coz im bordering on rambling 8P
