Unbeatable AI after upgrading any car past engine level 2

Recommended Posts

I quit this game for almost an entire year because of this, mostly hoping that it would be fixed and disappointed to find that it still isn't. I can get 1st in masters with any car and engine upgrade 1 or 2 but as soon as I upgrade it to 3 or higher the AI suddenly hits record times in the top 200 all time. I'm not at that level and neither is the majority of the player base so it doesn't make sense to program the AI to post times like that. I have tested it and it happens with EVERY class including rallycross. As soon as I downgrade back to level 2, I am once again able to win. So I have the choice of keeping the max upgrade and finishing quicker + doing better at online events or staying at level 2 so I can actually win in career mode. It doesn't make sense and seems it will never be fixed as it looks like support has already been dropped as usual.

Thats interesting. I thought the AI had maxed out cars all the time..

You can change the upgrade whenever you want to the ones you got unlocked so use 2nd for career if thats better for you and then max upgrade whenever doing community events.

I'm fairly certain AI doesn't scale upgrades compared to player and typically always uses max.

Masters AI is the equivalent to 95% Difficulty in other modes, which is around 5-10% slower than the fastest human players. It doesn't scale dynamically however compared to leaderboards, but is set based on a target time set by a specific human driver (usually Jon Armstrong).

What platform are you on @OperationIvy?

I normally drive the cars in the career with no modifications until I have done enough miles to unlock the best upgrade (to save a bit of money). I have never noticed any AI jump from level 1 to the top level for any car in either rally or rallycross.

Can you post some data to demonstrate your issue?  Like what is the winning race length with upgrade 2 compared to 3 and 4?
