[GRID 2019] Way less credits in free play mode events after patch 1.1

Recommended Posts

I noticed that the amount of credits in free play mode events got reduced by alot after patch 1.1

So custom events are completely not worth the effort and so the mode is pretty much useless atm.

 

I compared full grid events in career and free play mode with identical settings:

They also changed the career mode credits, I used to run the tuner showdown event a couple of times to buy some cars as that event gave around 145.000 credits every run. Now it has been changed to 45.000 credits.

I took a break from the game and just came back to check out patch 1.1. lol

Instantly noticed the credit nerf and did a search that landed me here.

Seems ridiculous,  I sure dont want to grind for cars now. 

@ChrisGrovesMCMWhy nerf credits codemasters? Hopefully just mistake? This cripples the game for me. :classic_sad:

They over nerfed credits for sure. Basically you gain the 10% of other modes... hope they change it, maybe 50% may be more fair.

@ChrisGrovesMCM What about this issue ? I mean the free play mode is pretty useless if i get less credits than in career mode... And i can still not choose how many laps i want to do in career and in free play a i can but get punished for using it with way too less credits ? Makes no sense to me...

So there's certainly been an intentional change to the credits hand-outs in different modes in updates, as we aim to strike a balance between giving players fair rewards, and not fast-tracking their progress too much. 

What we saw from GRID on launch is that the credits being handed was simply too high; players were able to unlock and use the most desirable cars in the game quicker than was intended. Since then, tweaks have been made to improve that balance. So it's not an issue or bug, it's by design - but we're obviously happy to take on feedback on how players find the current balance. 

I can also look to get confirmation, before there's any major update in the future, on if any further adjustments are being made. 👍

Just look at my screeshots. 6K career race and not even 500 credits for the exact same event in freeplay. Thats insane. No one will drive 10-15 times more races to get to the same amount of credits as you get in the career. Thats way too less credits in free play mode and way too much grind. It feels like a punishment for using free play mode if you ask me.
