  1. The wear is the same as simulating practice sessions in 2020 and it's ridiculous. Doing the same practice programmes over the years has become repetitive and simulating/quick practice should fix that. AI spending all 3 practice sessions talk is bs. You are already handicapping yourself by getting less resource points by simulating than you could've got manually and that's enough "punishment".

    NBA 2K's also have MyCareer, where you play as the son of a legendary basketball player and try to create your own legacy. Cutscenes and drama aplenty. It does seem pretty popular:image.thumb.png.d79118fec2c3f78b45e3850180aa1a3d.png

    So I guess not a good example of "story or any kind of scripted scenarios not belonging in sports games"? 

    Not trying to antagonize you, mate. My point was already stated in my two posts above. These game modes do give traction to the franchise, bringing in new players and expanding the audience. As long as the devs do not neglect other elements and aspects of the game, this is an investment in the future of the franchise and I'm all for it. 

    With the acquisition by EA (and hopefully a healthy relationship of good funding, cooperation and independence), we "serious players" have only to benefit from it in the long term.

    They focused on modes that give reason to come back to all year long first, that was my point. Game modes with scripted scenarios are 1 and dones. No replayability, waste of resources when there's so much room for improvement where that is the case. 2k has done that already, plus the game is so much easier to mod. They can afford expanding in that direction, I still think it's a waste though.

  3. Story or any kind of scripted scenarios just don't belong in sports games, simple as that. It may be fun for the first time playthrough of course but that's it. Career modes have so much more potential to create your own stories in these games. That's where the content/replayability is. Spend your resources on that.

    NBA 2k's Myleague is a great example. Insanely customizable, you can manage all teams, make transfers between them, rule changes, literally whatever you want. It's a sandbox. Your imagination is the story. Imagine if F1 games had that...

    even the part where you can delegate R&D to the AI

    Can you also skip/simulate practice sessions without taking too big of a hit at anything because of this? Like I don't mind losing a few resource points, the gain on those has been op anyway but if you simulate practice sessions in 2020 the wear on your components is just ridiculous.

  5. Has anyone played around with safety car frequency option? This might be the only reason I buy this game because safety car has been broken for me in 2020 since release. It just doesn't come out. Twice in 3 seasons...

  6. I'm still enjoying it but I'm only in 2nd season of MyTeam. The main issue I have is STILL the lack of safety car. I just witnessed Vettel crashing on the long straight in Hanoi losing both front wheels, only VSC. Few laps later, Hamilton parks on the run-off after that straight, nothing. I think I only had 1 full SC in season 1 but it's been a long time, I'm not even sure anymore. AI and practice programmes aren't well balanced from track to track either. Other than that I'm enjoying it. 

  7. I disagree. Those penalties are a must. In unranked lobbies everyone is cutting corners and extending limits. That's not fun or realistic. It reduces the skill gap and it's also not fair to no assist drivers. I didn't know it affects safety rating though. Does it really? Because it doesn't really make sense. I agree about the track voting part. The penalties you get from others hitting you is what needs looking into.

    Is that possible? If I don't allow Codemasters to track my data they can't shut leaderboards down for me I think. That's what GDPR (EU data privacy law) is all about.

    They wouldn't exactly track your data. It would only track if it matches the original files. In F1 challenge and I belive rFactor as well, if there was a lobby with a mod, you couldn't join it because your files didn't match obviously. Maybe something like that could be done for TT.

  9. My experience with G29 is very bad. After few months paddle shifts stopped working properly. It registered 2 presses or no presses at all. Mostly the latter and it got worse and worse. I got it fixed since it was still under warranty but 2 weeks later same thing happened. Then I just gave up on it.
