If I order a cab an it says its on its way it will b there soon!!!! An shows up 3 weeks later I wud b mad :0 soon isnt an answer its a joke like this shit game :D
Its crazy how more and more common and supposedly acceptable it is getting to release clearly unfinished games.  Battlefield 4 has been out for how many months and it just got a patch that allows you to play for longer than 10 minutes without hard resetting your xbox. 
Bugs included this is a phenomenal console simcade racer.  Not since TOCA 2 has the fun factor been so high that I've stayed glued to a racing game for this long. Hopefully the now standard overpriced 'second half of the game' DLC doesn't divide and disperse the community.  Well obviously it will but hopefully not to the point of the game dieing.

Codemasters Southam is about 1.5miles down the road from where I live. I recon it would be a lot quicker for me to drive there and ask them about the leaderboards lol.
Well the answer would be the same as on all things.. they are "discussing possibilities" and "collecting information" :o

But seriously, we need leaderboards. Its a welcome change from crashkiddies in the very limited number of lobbies hosted by either the crashkids themselves, a guy who set only one event and goes afk for 10 minutes between races or clanmates from those crashkiddies. Host your own lobby? Well good luck getting some ppl together.

I really don't want this thread to turn into a slagging off the game thread. That was not the purpose of it. I love the game and have had many hours of fun playing it. I know a great bunch of guys that play it and play fair so I have had some great online races without getting rammed off the track by assholes.

I really think it's a great game. The only thing missing IMHO is the Leaderboards hence this thread. Please can we not turn it into some bitter argument of it being rubbish. I would hate for the thread to be deleted due to it as I am hoping for an update from Loore.

To me there is nothing better than working your way up the leaderboards in time trial bettering your time by tenths of seconds or hundredths even! I remember in the original Grid I managed to get into the top 10 in a couple and it was a great feeling. I put in some serious hours doing it and I think it's a key factor to making a game last longer. I strongly believe that is "one" of the reasons Grid 2 died such a quick death..Lack of leaderboards.

Hopefully this one will be different. I love the handling, I love the tracks and cars. Leaderboards to me will just finish the game off perfectly.

Same here.

I do share your thoughts re leaderboards and timing information in general on Codemasters games.

Considering there is a large group of people out there (esp. single player) who are interested in improving their lap times it seems strange to me that there is so little timing information. Some things I would like that aren't there (maybe they are and I haven't found) :

At the end of practice a time for every lap.
Ability to switch on lap records for practice laps. For example when I go into practice I need to see my fastest ever lap for that circuit up there, and not just the fastest in that session.
At the minimum a tool where you can see the fastest time for each class on every route.

As an aside, has anyone noticed the race engineer being a bit inaccurate re lap timings, for example saying that the lap time was off or not as fast when in fact you broke the practice record during the lap ?

I view the race engineers a bit like my ex-girlfriend. Most of the time they talk sense but occasionally they come out with total nonsense, like, "there are some slight damage to the rhs of the car" when the whole bodywork on that side is mashed in and the door is off.

Time Trial mode without AI and possibility to choose a ghost lap, best time leaderboard, yes definitely we need that feature !

Ya that was the most fun I've had single player in the game.  You can select any person in the worlds ghost lap to race against which is pretty amazing and obviously should be an incorporated feature/game-mode.

I want for you to finally include a way for us to know what real place we are in time trial.  Seriously, you have to add this.  I dont want to know that I am 180th.............I want to know that I am 180th out of 35,000..............or 180th out of 185.  See how one is so much better than the other?

Im telling you now if they havnt worked out how 2 keep there leaderboards from glitching after 3 games then they should stop making them!!!!!!        Forza motorsport 2 had problens with the boards at 1st so they released them then fixed them over a few months then had a full reset :p    just pointing out other games company's had a similar problen an didn't rob the consumer! !!!!!

kubica4, seriously you were not too bad at the start but you are just spamming the thread now. No need for 3 posts in a row! Take a chill pill or something or if you hate the game that much just delete it and forget about it. It's a good game, it just needs leaderboards which will be coming.
