Tyre wear bug - Wear depends on starting tyre?

This is starting to get ridicolous, at least an update when or if a fix will be released would be nice, so we know that this was acknowledged, but complete silence is unaccaptable, considering the promises that were made.


 Untill this bug the patches worked pretty well ( exept of the PS4 patch that ruined online for 2 weeks) and the communication was pretty good, but now codies are falling back into bad habits.

Well here we go then. My turn. I'm sure I will be repeating what others have said already but my frustration about this bug has built to where I need to get it off my chest on here.

This bug is game breaking. That's right. GAME BREAKING. As such, it needs to be addressed ASAP. I race in AOR Split 1 on the Xbox One. This tyre wear bug has been a killer for league races. It renders qualifying almost useless. It is sometimes more advantageous, especially on tracks with higher tyre wear, to start outside the top 10 than inside the top 10 simply because you will have so much less tyre wear than those ahead if you choose to start on the middle or hardest compound. It has come to the point where on some tracks I am actually contemplating trying to qualify P11 to exploit the extra tyre life, rather than going all out and trying to get the fastest possible time and then suffering the worse tyre wear throughout the race.

It's almost as if when you start on the middle or harder compounds for a 50% distance race, the tyre wear doesn't scale to 50% like it does if you started on the softest compound, and is scaled to 75 or 100% wear (essentially half the tyre wear). I just had a league race around Canada on Sunday. The tyres available in a dry race are US, SS and S. I compared tyre wear with someone who started on the S compound vs my tyre wear starting on the US. In the final stint, I put on the mandatory Soft tyres and they put on the Ultra Soft the same lap as me. At the end of the race, we had about the same amount of tyre wear. You can see how advantageous this tyre wear bug can be for those who start on the harder compounds. The pace difference between the US and the S at Canada was ~1 second per lap. Over a whole stint that is 15-20 seconds if they are deteriorating at the same rate! I'm well known for being very good at saving my tyres, and at this point it's indisputable that there is a serious bug present. 

All we want is some communication. I'm aware you guys have been busy having just released the mobile game, but please don't leave us in the dark. If you guys can't fix this, please let us know. If you can, then great! We would just very much appreciate some back and forth, maybe so we can resolve this issue together. When I discovered the game breaking 'falling too far back' safety car glitch, I opened a thread and got a response very quickly (and a subsequent patch!). But now there is another game breaking glitch found and we've not heard anything for a while. It's a shame.

I guess all I'm hoping for right now is a response.

Thanks,
Seiyariu

Can someone please give me a quick, brief explaination on what this bug is. Sorry, yes, I've been hiding in a cupboard for months. :) 
if you are starting on the middle or on the hardest compound, you get 1-2 % less tyre wear on them, then the guys starting on the softest compound.

Basically it gives everyone outside the top with the free tyre choice a huge advantage compared to the Top 10 , therefore it is game breaking

Starting on the..
Softest Compound 25% Race Tyre wear scaling
Middle Compound 50% Race Tyre wear scaling
Hardest Compound 100% Race Tyre wear scaling
that isn't what I've found. what you're suggesting is that the wear rate would be 4x less on hardest vs softest when it's really about 2x. Still is a huge difference though.

Nope. I've just done a test in Quick Race and it's in offline as well. Can't confirm career but I would imagine that it appears in all game modes that have tyre wear present.

I've not posted anything because I have no news to post at the moment. When there is I will post it.


thanks for the response. I do apologise on behalf of everyone if we are coming across as impatient and/or rude in some instances.

I've just conducted a little test so hopefully it can be of use to you and the team. Here is the video and my findings.

I drove 3 runs each starting on different tyres which you can see in the top right.

I pitted at the end of the first lap and took the super softs until I hit 70% on my tyres. I drove the same smooth style on all runs, hitting roughly the same laptimes (sometimes it varied as I had to pass AI). I used the same setup each time, with the same starting fuel. Standard Mix throughout the entire run only and no DRS.

As you can see the results vary a lot.
Starting on the SS I managed 7 laps before I hit 70%.
Starting on the S I managed 12 laps before I hit 70%.
Starting on the M I managed 13 laps before I hit 70%.

In conclusion, it seems to be the case that the harder the tyres you start on, the better your tyre wear will be throughout the race. Starting on the hardest compound gives you roughly 50% the wear of starting on the softest compound. Starting on the middle compound gives you about 60% the wear of starting on the softest compound. In other words, starting on the softest compound gives you double the tyre wear compared to someone starting on the hardest compound.

Was just a consideration! Good job with the Video and your explanation! I couldn't say this better with my bad english xD!

I think that they know exactly which is the problem (at least 1 month already) and they know exactly how to solve the problem.... but they do not plan to release new patches.
F1 2016 is a good game (nothing is perfect) ---> F1 2017 will be the next patch :#

Really looking forward to this bug getting fixed. It is absolutely no fun to race anymore with that in mind.

Each time I have a good race I ask myself afterwards: Did I achieve this because of the tyrewear? Same after bad results. The tyrewear became the main factor in league racing, with most people now not even setting a time in qualifying so they can start on the hardest compound. And these guys (starting outside the Top 10) get on the podium or take the win on most occasions. I'm really sad because F1 2016 is one of the games I spent most of my free time with.
