We are moving towards 2020 with initial release of the 7th. I don't see there being another weekly event, and its not at the forefront of our plans right now.

@BarryBL This can not be true? They give us a slap in the face. We are buying this game and now you want to say that we can all no longer get the Paltin Trophy because the development team is no longer bringing or planning weekly Grand Prix events? This is a complete joke. We all want to unlock these two trophies so that we also have the opportunity to get the platinum. Please don't be so mean to us players. In addition, these two trophies for a weekly Grand Prix and all events of a weekly Grand Prix had not been available or had to be closed for months anyway, since they were never available. There have been no new Grand Prix in the last 4 months, only main events. So please come and don't let us hang out with it. Please fix that for us gamers !!!!!!!!

My question is, why on earth are the dev team responsible for adding events? Can't it be set up to cycle through a list of all the original events again from now on?

I'm very disappointed with this game so far, and probably won't be buying F1 2020 any time in the near future unless they fix this situation.

I agree. That's what should happen

People typically buy games to beat them 100% and get the Platinum Trophy.

Some might but I'd have thought most buy games to enjoy playing them :classic_smile:.

I do understand the frustration of it becoming impossible to get every trophy for those who specifically target this though.

Games are meant to be completed. They are a tool that is designed to help you evolve as a human and get better. What if Mario had no purpose. What if Princess Peach was banging Luigi so Mario just ran around and there were no levels. It would be pointless. Some will play F1 for enjoyment however most true gamers will get that itch to complete the game otherwise a void will be left behind. I only enjoy F1 2020 when I'm doing good because I'm competitive. If I want something specifically to enjoy I'll turn on PornHub and shut my blinds

Dear @BarryBL

How many weeks we should wait for the Gran Prix weekly event? When will you give as an opportunity to get those two trophies?

By the way, there is no any weekly events this week which scares me. 

Codemasters, please, give us a last chance. Hope, you will hear our pray!

I once hitch-hiked from near London to South Wales with some employees of Codemasters, they were great people. They appear to have been replaced by EA employees.

By your definition most players are not 'true gamers' though, as demonstrated by how rare platinum trophies are. I totally understand that this is a big deal for you but to suggest there's no point in anyone buying a game just because it's technically impossible to get a platinum trophy is ridiculous. It would make precisely zero difference to my own decision to buy a game. In fact it wouldn't stop me buying an F1 game if there were no trophies at all. 

The trophy system in F1 games is rather flawed anyway actually due to the ability to change the AI level. Getting all trophies with 0% AI is a very different challenge to doing so at 110% AI.

By the way I absolutely care about my performance in the game and improving, it's just that I wouldn't use trophies to gauge this or to set objectives.

@BarryBL Hello,

As many others have already said, please please please please please add more weekly events to F1 2019. I too wanted to complete every F1 game to 100% but removing this feature with no warning is just a huge slap in the face, and really makes me not want to buy any more F1 games if this is how we are treated as a community.

Please do the right thing.

Just like they never did in F1 2018? :) They work like a true capitalist company, only present products get full support. One year old game? Who gives a shssss. Buy 2020 games, forget last year. F1 2019 weekly event locked since this morning, because 2020 came out last Friday.

I was willing to  cut you guys just a little bit of slack cause of having to sort FI 2020  and maybe we will all have to wait maybe a month or 2  but now after seeing a locked symbol on weekly events are you saying that's it's 100% not even in a few months never going to happen.  Are you even reading any of this.  c'mon guys at least a bit of feedback.

I’ve been checking every Monday to see if there is finally a weekly event and loaded it up today and was quite disappointed to see a lock symbol. Every single F1 achievement is still obtainable right now on Xbox until this. That includes F1 2010 - F1 2018 and even includes 2010 and 2011 Games For Windows Live versions. With that being said, is there a chance that one more weekly event could be created and give all of us who started the game late a chance to get it? Or could you please keep the same weekly event up permanently going forward? I doubt many people care too much about weekly events at this point except those who need the achievements, so maybe pick a track and keep it on an ongoing loop?

There hasn’t been a weekly event since the week of June 7th - 14th. If you were discontinuing the feature, surely you could’ve had one in that time period? A heads up would have been great for an achievement with an expiration date. Regardless, please at least give us one more opportunity to complete all events in a weekly Grand Prix and complete the weekly Grand Prix.

@BarryBL if you could work with us on a solution here.

In a business sense I can't really blame you, I guess, but it does feel like a kick in the teeth to the community and fanbase that you have built up over the last 10 years.

I sincerely hope that Codemasters will do the right thing here, and at least announce a final opportunity to attain these trophies if it is going to be abandoned in favour of F1 2020 moving forwards..

@BarryBL

Please consider this, even if there was only 1 more weekly event for those who missed out on it, it would be greatly appreciated, then we can all happily move on to F1 2020. Without being able to fully complete F1 2019 I imagine many others like myself won’t continue with the series.

Will the achievements be patched because of this?

It's an awful idea to add achievements to events that you plan to stop updating. :classic_angry:

This is a joke right? I have completed all achievements on just about every F1 game since 2010, so this is disappointing. I only started 2019 back on 9th June, and wasn't aware they wasn't going to continue the weekly race event. I don't understand why they cant have the weekly race event set to permanent So they have stopped doing the event before the games one year anniversary, that's shocking. I've been booting the game up everyday for the last month hoping to do this event, looks like 2019 has broken my streak. Stupid idea to have a achievement that they was aware would to discontinued with in 12 months of release. 

 

If this turns out to be true, then I don't think I will ever buy another codemasters game again. I guess I will cancel my Dirt 5 preorder.

I noticed that most of you have the "trophy issue", and I understand your problem side.

I want move to the surface an other situation: Events give C for obtain customizable components in a fast way with minimum effort, and who play and creates multiplayer leagues with multiplayer cars needs the Coins as water in the desert.

I'm a Developer, and I'm sure is not difficult create a cicle where every week there an automatic display for a gran prix event. Why don't do a easy thing like this? You are really so in difficulties with work to cannot click a flag with "Hugarian GP Event?" or "Random GP Event"?

There is no way a weekly event could harm the f1 2020 game development

This is anti consumer practice plain and simple giving no warning before removing a feature. 

Why bother putting a trophy like that is there is no plan to support the userbase?

If you dont respect the costumers dont expect them to come back and this comes from a long time fan

Shame
