  1. Me too. I tried playing on the level below legend and was getting pole by 2 seconds, how is that fun? I have gotten good enough to compete on legend, but my point is that it's inconsistent. Half the races I'll get pole by over a second and then in the race everybody runs the same times as me, I can still win, but it doesn't make any sense. The other half of the races I'm a second off the pole and in the race I run roughly the same times as AI. The wheel to wheel racing is better and I enjoy the new cars, but I get no enjoyment out of a full race weekend. And when it comes to rain it's just r
  2. I've finished my first season and the racing just isn't enjoyable, one race I'm 2 seconds faster than AI, the next I'm a second slower (playing with wheel on legend). Seeing as there will be no patch, I think I'm done with this game. I'm disappointed because I do enjoy driving the new cars, but there is no game mode worth playing. Career or GP mode the AI times are inconsistent, and online you have to deal with people who don't know how to race properly and the pad users with TC. I'll probably put it in to play a time trial every now and then just for kicks, but there is no point racing. Good
  3. I've found the same thing, certain tracks I am very fast at and others I just have to hope to hold the train behind me, and it's pretty much the tracks you mentioned.  I'm only half way through my first season in GP mode on legend, with no assists and a wheel, I feel like I'm getting a better feel for the car and maybe next season I can do better at Australia and a few others.  The qualifying versus race pace is frustrating, I got pole at Austria by over a second and then come the race I had to hold 3 cars back basically the whole race, I had the third or fourth fastest lap time in t
  4. What is your setup? Here is my setup for Bahrain: WINGS:    6  Front  /   2  Rear BRAKES:    52% Front  /  48%  Rear: High Pressure: Standard Size ANTI-ROLL BAR:  6  Front  /  8  Rear SUSPENSION:   Height: 1  Front  /  2  Rear: Stiffness  10  Front  /  8  Rear CAMBER: Front  -3.50  /  Rear  -1.40                Toe:  Front  -0.05  /&n
  5. Yes, I use cockpit view, no line, no assists.  I don't want to turn traction control on to be faster on legend, that takes a lot of fun out of driving the car.  The only thing I can do is drive with a middle of the pack team on expert for now.  Maybe I just need to get better to compete on legend, but from what I've read on here nobody is good enough for legend.
  6. It was $10 cheaper here in the US compared to last year's game which wasn't even available as a hard copy here, not much but at least its an acknowledgement that they didn't put 100% into this game.  I've spent $50 on a lot worse things.  I'm pretty used to CM disappointing me so I'm not as outraged as I used to be towards them, they definitely aren't a first-class company, but at least its a decent F1 sim to play.  I don't see any other options, for PS3 at least.  Like I said, I think they did a good job on the new cars which is much more important to me than how the menu
  7. I enjoy driving the new cars, I think CM has done a good job with that, but that's about it.  The biggest problem for me is there is the difficulty levels.  On expert I'm over a second faster than everybody with a Ferrari in career, and on legend I'm 1-2 seconds slower than my teammate.  So its pretty unplayable as of now, the only way to race competitively is to drive for Force India or Torro Rosso on expert, but that isn't fun to me.  Other issues are the same ones from last year, and the year before, and the year before that.  The most annoying is the AI not getting
  8. Does GP mode keep track of your points each race?  I've never tried GP mode, only done career.  I don't care about the name and helmet I just want to compete in a championship
  9. I have only played career mode since the game came out and you're right you aren't in a fully developed car especially in the first season with Lotus, but doing the r&d you usually progress quicker than other teams and catch them by the end of the season.  If you stay with the team the next year you will start with a better car depending on if you choose to focus on next year and you might be 1 second faster than anyone else by the time the season is over, which is no fun either.  The tough thing is finding the right balance where you're competing for wins every race, but not lap
  10. Ditto all that, spot on. People expect a perfect game, which is totally unrealistic.  There should be improvements every year trying to get closer to perfection, but it will never be reached, which is life.  2013 was a great game considering the complicated nature of real life F1, I don't think people understand that.  I just hope they can make improvements to the game while still tackling the tough task of an entirely new car and style of driving for 2014.  Fingers crossed...
  11. Totally agree, the interviews were a waste of time and resources for codemasters, I would always choose the same answers without reading the questions just to get it over.  I don't get how people get enjoyment out of reading made up news clippings that only they will read, I know I just beat my teammate I don't need to read a story telling me what happened, I was there, I was the only one there in fact, I don't need a recap.  I would much rather see more focus on the physics on track and AI driving than superficial gimmicks that really don't effect the game.  And I'm pretty su
  12. I use a G27 for ps3, works pretty good for me. FFB can definitely can be improved, but it doesnt really hurt my lap times. Advanced wheel setttings- everything at 0 FFB- 100, 100, 0 Wheel weight can be played with, I move it up to 30 on certain tracks, mostly about preference Hope it helps.
