Revert AI Aggression Petition

Recommended Posts

The driver aggression previously saw top cars battle it out in a realistic manner. Accidents do occur in this sport, if you're in the wrong position, your opposition isn't simply going to forgive you. I find that the AI after the recent patch 1.04 have really ruined the experience. At 100% difficulty, I've managed to just divebomb my way from 20th to 10th on the opening lap, with the haas, when I shouldn't even be anywhere near 10th at the end of the race regardless. I went from consistent P7s to challenging race wins at the same difficulty and car level, just because of the passiveness of the AI. I loved seeing Hamilton and Vettel battle it out early on in the race making moves on eachother, one of them eventually spinning out, being able to pounce on other drivers, when two of them are battling infront of you, the safety car being called out randomly and not because of player error.

Please revert the driver aggression. I felt as though it was a massive step forward in this series, and I'm extremely sad to see it go.

you could dive bomb from the beginning.. infact you could dive bomb before the game came out (in beta) as per the 2 weeks of videos by youtubers showing it.

Soloution: don’t dive bomb.
Drive as if it was real and you could get hurt or cause an accident.  Pass if there is a clean opportunity where you know you won’t damage the car.  You wouldn’t do it if there was no flashback and no restart allowed so drive like that and if you do have an accident just live with it and drive into the pits and change your strategy.

while this is excellent advice, if they can't help themselves dive bombing into corner 1 lap 1, they won't live with 'bugger i broke my nosecone' even a little bit, (flashback / replay to the rescue) but will complain about the AI and how it ruins immersion.  ::frowning: go figure.

Did they change anything in the AI? I thought this was unsubstantiated, we saw some vids where AI gave space rather than cause an accident, left me a little non-plussed. I didn't notice anything personally but I'm aware there are many who have raced the AI a heck of a lot more, so perhaps there is something there.

I can't tell, I put too much into McLaren and now they are untouchable lmao! When I race the AI only Alonso can give me pressure! But then I have been doing every practice programme and session bar P3! It will make moving to Williams that much more fun, I think they are the only team in my career mode that haven't progressed! Racing McLaren at basic state was unreal but it could be because of that.
Since patches and progression I have seen a few times AI backing out, not by much but still putting the brakes on more than normal, but it could be just that my car is now too fast for them that it seems I'm dive bombing them ;) Only once Alonso backed off me, there was plenty of room but not sure if it was because of a teammate thing in an AI command? Or if it was just an unusual line I took out of the corner (still had plenty of room but not sure how much wiggle room the AI have to do moves with).
So I understand why people are bringing up this AI de-aggression thing. I'll personally find out as soon as I move to Williams..

If moving to a much less competitive car brings back the hard fight I'll just make sure I don't do so much R&D next time round. Maybe just quali and race.

The AI do back out if they know they have lost the corner.  You have to be alongside them not nose by back wheel.  Even then sometimes they will try to go around the outside of the corner and will make mistakes occasionally (running wide / locking up).  My only complaint is that they will drive into your rear when their front wheel is by your rear wheel.  On most tracks you can get away with this and just give them space and try to outbreak them in the next corner but around Monaco it pretty much means a race ending crash as they just ram you off.  In general the AI is better than last year but that tendency to hit you from behind is still there.  Must be a hard balance for Codies to strike otherwise they would have sorted it no doubt.

How can one disagree with anothers evidence if they haven't seen the evidence for themselves yet?
It is possible things can change without some knowing, its also possible some formats could have different changes.
Although videos are always helpful to see any changes people are facing. Maybe comparison video if any good at playing with video mixing software.

I don't see anything different. And I think the devs would state it in the patch notes if they changed something this big.

While I don’t know much about coding and game production, I am pretty sure, that there is a risk that by changing the code for a certain part / process / general thing, you risk alterering something else in the game too as a result due to the nature coding works. Could be that it’s not included in the patch notes, because it was unintentional. I for one however didn’t notice a change in the AI in patch 1.05 and I played on multiple tracks, although I haven’t played 1.06 yet so cant comment.

Maybe if they would've changed something with the codint of the AI it could happen, but they did not touch the AI either.

They should really do research on the "Placebo effect" with Codemasters F1 games. Every year its the same thing with people creating fantasies of things that happen (or don't happen) when patches come out.

Its quite fascinating to observe.

I should post some videos of the AI fighting me like crazy and taking the inside line so I can't pass. Also them battling each other hard side by side through 2 laps. Dive bombing me at the start etc.

I have videos from 1.04, 1.05, 1.06....all behaving the same. Not sure what your seeing but I see the same behavior so....we agree to disagree. Your still wrong though  :p

 yeah sure, only for you everything works like before hahaha these topic are all imagination

and yes AI yet fight with himself, but not with player, always versus player him give you the position like blue flag, but i understand, you feel bettter overtaking everytime without dificult than fighting and AI crashing on you when not respect your line

Nope AI was the same for me. I had the update mid race in China and still had a lap by lap battle with Verstappen until he drove into Gasley on the final lap whilst lapping him.

THIS! It's becoming so frustrating when people pick up on things after each patch that don't exist... And we wonder why some things remain unfixed or slow to be fixed. It's probably because their time is occupied investigating people's imagination!
