Performance Patch coming soon?


Recommended Posts

Guest Bicarda

they said 'first half of the month' (and that ship has sailed ūüėõ )¬†

There is a small unspecified delay. But it will include more fixes than just team performance. 
personally, I hope for Monday.  

This got communicated in other threads.

"The Power Unit stats and prices remain unchanged in My Team, so as not to unfairly change the balance of your experience!"

so in a new my team career, Ferrari, alfa and haas have still the best engines or does this sentence belong to running my team careers??

I have no idea, I've asked this myself in this thread:

Hmm, ok. I took it the wrong way, as have many others on Twitter.

People can't read anymore. Cause everything is a video these days. 

But don't pin me on it maybe you guys are right and I'm wrong.. 

The way I read it is early next week. (Which might be monday but i guess they don't want to make promises and have us moan again)

Nah, in my excitement (I thought it was announcing the patch was out now) and my eyes jumped to "19th October".

So CM just posted this article: Performance Update Sneak Peak

Already quite a few negative reactions on Twitter and Facebook for this part: "The Power Unit stats and prices remain unchanged in My Team, so as not to unfairly change the balance of your experience!" I hope they just mean to existing saves and not a restarted experience because this would be the exact opposite of what people have been asking for (given that Ferrari are SO out of line from real life performance). Can we please get a definitive answer on whether this statement is for pre-existing saves and that new MyTeam starts do get the changes @BarryBL? I know you've been barraged lately on this issue but this does seem to be make or break given how long we've waited and the delay.

Thank you for the post regardless, this topic post has been asking for more communication in general.

My concern immediately was whether the AI in MyTeam would get the same nerf as everywhere else as it just points to "stats and prices", which I took that it's only indicating the performance for YOUR team in MyTeam. For instance, if you remain unchanged with a Ferrari engine, but the Ferrari AI gets nerfed, it's going to be so broken. I don't know if MyTeam AI uses the MyTeam Ferrari/Renault/Mercedes/Honda performance files or if they use the standard AI performance files.

I really hope I'm wrong and I've misread.

It needs to be simplying apply to existing save or not in MyTeam. Pretty easy and everyone has been saying this for weeks. 

I didn't take it as being about existing saves or not, I took it as even starting a new save, you could have unaffected Ferrari engine performance compared to Ferrari themselves who have been nerfed.

The way they word things really doesn't help.

Well their wording is as clear as mud so who knows.

best would be if i could choose if i want to apply it to my current myteam career. 

They pretty much let you do that with the driver stats changes so the scopes there.  I hope its just badly worded and current saves aren't effects (which is fine and inline with previous games) and new starts have the ferrari engine at their correct level.

It needs clarification but I'd take it as if it's just your team would be unaffected. Or at least I'd hope so.

I'm actually a little more concerned that they've left Williams alone as they really should be the same level as Haas and Alfa. I know Haas and Alfa are being nerfed but its already very rare to see Williams catch up even after several seasons. 

I hope they can address that all teams are getting too many resource points that are making regulation changes almost redundant. I'm only on season 4 but things are hardly different that season 1. Hoping for a little more variety after rule changes.

 

I wish honestly that they would give us the freedom to apply upgrades to each team if we wish at the start of career mode. At least that way we could sort of balance the teams as we would like. It would be unrealistic but I'd love to give Williams some upgrades to put them as fourth best team or something at the start of season 1 if I feel like mixing it up a bit. Can then choose whether those upgrades are affected by regulation changes. More freedom is always a good thing.

So typical how they would post stuff on Twitter and then not answer that valid question everybody asks. Suddenly no one's home anymore. 
Personally, I don't care at all about myteam or relative bot performance. But it is abysmal that it took so long and even more so if it won't even affect myteam. 

Which is how I read it. it won't affect my team at all. Not in your current save nor your next.

Let's hope at least they nailed the actual 'performance' fixes mainly in multiplayer.

Are there any plans to do another change to the driver ratings? I feel that Nicholas Latifi is way underrated, if you play in Grand Prix or Championship mode (so just doing a default F1 race) 99% of the time he will always come in last place. I agree statistically he should be the worst driver on the grid but not my the margin that he is currently rated.

quoting for the official performance sneak peek posting: "The Power Unit stats and prices remain unchanged in My Team, so as not to unfairly change the balance of your experience!"

Well, i sincerely hope this does not mean what it says. While certainly nobody cares about engine prices, we have all for weeks now hoped, awaited, demanded an engine performance fix. If now we do not get any balance change in the myteam mode (which seems to me is what people tend to play the most, or gets the most attention see youtube and whatnot), what would that fix be useful for at all? It will not apply in multiplayer since car performance will be equalized there. So the only part of the game remaining where the fix could be applied would be career mode? No thanks Codemasters, this is not what we wanted, and if this is what we will get until mid of next week, then you have not listened at all to your fanbase since release. Hell, no please no. If you have any concerns if applying engine performance and / or team perfomance changes to myteam mode was a good idea or not, then let us CHOOSE if we want to apply it, may it be a new playthrough or an existing save. We can set AI drivers performance as we wish to play the game to cakewalk or to insane, why in the world shall we not set car performance as well? Christ, you cant release the best F1 game of all times and then spoil it by not adapting engine performance in a way that is realistic for 2020. Comeon - it is Corona pandemic and many of us have to sit at home way more than we want to. Let us rock with our own F1 teams at least!

I've been waiting since early August to play the game again with a performance update, because Ferrari's performance is so immersion breaking (Leclerc won by almost 100 points in first season).

Please don't tell me the performance update won't apply to My Team mode. That would be an epic mistake.

I think, and I could be wrong It means that the stats won't change for us but will for the teams. So when choosing an engine Ferrari will still be the best but for the ai they will no longer be as quick. 

But that's the issue I was raising - if Ferrari's AI is (correctly) slower, but Codies aren't adjusting the Ferrari power unit for the player, then players who have Ferrari as their power unit will be faster than every other Ferrari-powered team, and that is just plain dumb.

Think about it - you're this nothing startup team, you shouldn't be faster than Ferrari themselves. It should be a complete performance change for everyone in MyTeam - AI and player - or no change at all, but not half-done because it's going to spoil the game for anyone using Ferrari. I'm annoyed because I've started a save and was working up to having a Ferrari engine, and if this is true, I might as well give up playing it.

They say it's so the balance isn't spoilt for the player but the message is so vague I have no idea what any of it means anymore.
