Nelly Furtado requests more random online failures

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The 'Promiscuous' hitmaker Nelly Furtado took to the Codemasters forum to request more random online failures in the F1 2018 Codemasters series.

"I have really enjoyed the online gameplay from the F1 2018 Codemasters series this year, and I hope to enjoy the same for the upcoming series. I would like to put in a request for more frequent and varied random online failures.  At present the cars can be driven as a 'man-eater' with no risk.  There needs to be more DRS and ERS failures, with the variety of random punctures to make things a bit more unpredictable - it all adds to the 'hoo-haa' of online league racing. At the moment I feel like I've got the Spirit Indestructible"

Dunno how to say it right but I feel powerless if I get random DRS failure already in my league race. Especially during quali, I explode and think: just do it.

I do agree with you @Chicane486  @AMS97KRR - but sometimes when an online failure comes my way, I just say 'give it to me' 

I think failures of this nature are needed more often, along with engine blowout for over acceleration, loss of gear, hydraulic failure.  I am quite supportive of the current pitlane failure though where the car is unable to leave the pitlane due to some unforeseen circumstances, it adds to the realism and I quite enjoy experiencing something that'll punish me and turn off the light on my race.  I think more failures are a must online to spice up the show

You know I'd have to agree with Mrs Furtado, top top idea. Don't you think that online failures add some real character to the gameplay @Chicane486 ? Every time it happens I feel a sense of pride that I've shown outstanding character to continue. This sense of pride and accomplishment ultimately brings me back year after year, there's nothing like it. 

 

I'm a big advocate for gear boxes and engines failing as well, times can be tough when things don't go your way, but you know when you walk back to that garage that the spirit in the team will lift you up and make you stronger going forward. As I say, it's character building and it makes the good moments even better. 

 

A final possible avenue to explore is simulation damage in 5 lap races, what do people think of that?

As an option in unranked lobbies, it's fine by me. 

Unfortunately the game has its flaws every now and then in online mode (desync!) , but I'm still coming back.

If not for online definitely for career mode...the ai are usually good for at least 2 mechanical retirements a season and with they way they take their grid penalties (when needed and not strategically at all) it can be very easy to over power the ai and win the championships...as long as the game can differentiate between crashes and mechanical failures when it comes to the contracts and team rep it shouldn’t alter the gameplay too much...as always make it an option for those who aren’t interested

I think if there was some mechanic where you could manually trade off performance against reliability as you enter a race.....then, I’d be all for it. This puts the chance of it happening in the hands of the racer. 

Otherwise as a league steward, I could only imagine the drama it would create post race.

Yes this also sounds good. However trading off performance against reliability may sell a few 'pipe dreams' for some players who then inevitably get stung for sacrificing performance. 
I think for variability for league races including the actual performance of the vehicle degrading throughout the race need to be taken into account, it will give it that special new dynamic which @BrendanRodgers1 clearly highlighted in a well articulated post

Sorry I didn't reply. I agree to this, it should add a new dynamic which is much needed

Are you married, Nelly? Just thought I'd ask rather than Google it. Asking for Brendan Rodgers.

I am not married, and Brendan is a rather lovely man I must admit. He has some character @AMS97KRR

Can someone from Codemasters team please confirm or clarify whether there will be random failures online in the next series?

NO, there wont be a random failures espacily for multiplayer. Because random failures on multiplayer will just cause chaos as there will be player who dont wants to get failures.

I think I should let you know a few things: Random failures exist online already (I've suffered from several DRS failures in league races) and also, judging by the demeanor of this entire thread, it's one massive joke

I think that's a very insulting comment, I think some good views have been made by many users including @AMS97KRR

I think code masters need to take note of this and implement these features into their upcoming series - at least as an option. Like a switch you can turn on and off.

@NellyFurtado you've been warned for talking about the rabbit in public threads. At least you have now.

Im am sure @robin8f has some strong views about this topic about random car failures, it would be good to see what she has to say and for her to provide her comments on such an intriguing debate

I have to agree profusely with @NellyFurtado. A woman who knows what she wants and what is needed to build a brand. 

While DRS failures were annoying, spinning out in qualifying in Barcelona due to my DRS being stuck open added to the realism and immersion so the addition of ERS, KERS and tyre failures would add to this.

Another sensible comment from @7thGearRL, it's all about adding to the realism. Imagine if the engine blew out more often in career mode, more reliability concerns. But also in the online segment of the series, the hoo haa that this would add to league racing would just be thrilling. Proud site directors of worldwide racing leagues such as @AMS97KRR would be absolutely delighted and thrilled with this type of direction. If Codemasters and @T4RG4 get this implemented, then just like a bird I'll be flying into the next Tesco's to purchase the series. Many thanks, Ms Nelly Furtado x
