    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

    Most definately Let us help you put the grid game back where it once was as the best crossover racing sim there was available. Dont design it in isolation then throw it over the wall to us and tell us this is how we want it. ok that might be a bit glib, but ya know what im saying. Also [and im sure you wouldnt but as im in spilling mode] dont just take those that are vocal on forums word for this stuff...Im sure we all know folk who never forum, only chat in game or do voip. Some of these im sure would have plenny of wise thoughts and words for you re game design. Those that dont 'forum'...'game'...a closed beta release with a nice easy-peasy mechanism for 'bug reporting' or 'feature requesting' would reach those who cant normally make direct contact with you. and a closed then open beta would be the ideal time for that wouldnt it?

    What you want to see from GRID

    In reply to the question 'what you want to see from grid'  my answer in all honesty would be: "To see your developers do things in a different way' Yes yes, ill elaborate on that, but first i apologise for the dullness of my post in advance. Stop reading now if you hate walls of words....as i do!!  begone. Soooooo....at the moment, you [codemasters] have caught me at an opportune moment and im gonna spill my guts. This aint gonna be about how handling should be, or what tracks shoud be included or how pretty graphics should be like this or like that. Its about.....for want of a better explanation and a better likeness....letting us users...your twelfth man so to speak, becoming part of the team! I see you recently said somewhere that your offer to goto your offices still stands....and thats commendable....but its not becoming part of the team no its not...its a day out in the sun [i bet it rains] My view on the games i played that you produced: Grid1 was brill, the game took over enough of my life to annoy the wife and my boss....which in my book, is a good measure. [wife is still with me god bless her, boss went long ago!]. I dont think to this day that you guys know how good you could of had it, if you had stuck to the grid1 design and just prettied it up...added some new cars, tracks etc. The TOCA series, Race driver series...again, brilliant games, blighted only by lack of online play in the early days and poor online performance at times in the later days...neither of those things entirely your fault. Even Dirt 1 and 2 was ok but im a lapper not a stage kinda guy, but you still got my money for those two games When you properly announced grid 2, myself and A LOT of others were so lookin forward to it, it was hardly believeble at times...id liken it to waiting for star wars VII nowdays..or the next hobbit film, depending on your age. When you released G2, we werent too happy, but thought youd patch out the problems...you never did for me no no...nor those others that i know who also bought in...we quit you! The fall of CM for me was complete..it started with the switching off of the g1 servers, continued through the monotonous iterations of dirt and finished with G2. If you want any of my advice on how to do G3 here goes. 1] announce it...soon, build the hype. 2] do your pre alpha /alpha smoke testing...get something useable. 3] make it closed beta for a select few....allow those select few to invite others for closed beta..get a community goin on the virtual track. 3a] make sure you listen 8D 4] make open beta...charge ifya like, but dont take the michael. 4a] make sure you listen 8P 5] release a great game, erase all memory of grid2, become great again. fwiw, i play warframe now [its a ftp 3rd person shoota]..its currently open beta....and ya know what, its great...sure it might be a lil repetetive, but we get dev streams with yer actual devs....we get live streams where the community managers play with community people.....we feel part of the team...and we pay money every now and then also. cmon..i dare you...I DOUBLE DARE YOU.....make a decent game again disclaimer: must contain BTCC or variant, must include V8s or variant, may cause ill feeling at home, or at work, may cause premature aging and rage quitting, wear a helmet at all times.
