WE ARE MOVING!!!

Alongside the exciting announcement of F1 22, we are leaving the Codemasters Forums and joining EA Answers! Whether you are looking for the latest F1 22 news, a league to join or new setups to find those vital tenths of a second, EA Answers is the new place to be!

See you all on track (and on EA Answers)

Barry and the Codemasters Community Team

@BarryBL

 

Will the same account details (ID, email, password, content & comments etc.) for each individual forum member automatically be taken over to EA Answers, or do we need to create brandnew accounts ourselves?

 

Also, when will this event take place?

 

How much time is left?

 

Do we have a couple of days, weeks, or months left until the official Codemasters Forums are closed and nuked?

Yes it has been setup on ea’s forums. I had an ea account so am using that and imagine others will have to follow suit

Good questions, let me answer them for you.

  1. Unfortunately, no. We operate on different forum tech, so we cannot transfer, even though we did explore the option. You will need a new account.
  2. EA forums are now live
  3. The initial plan is to move all support for F1 22 to EA Answers so, theoretically, we will be moved by the launch date of the game
  4. Forums wont be nuked, as there is still Dirt Rally here. I will also be keeping the 'F1 Chat' section open with a redirect to the EA Answers HQ. This is because, on reflection, there is a lot of conversation between players there that seems to be not exactly game related like a bug report, but, more importantly, beneficial for those users mental health.  For those reasons, I'll be keeping those areas open with redirects to the new home should those players choose to move.

Thanks for the info, and have a great day comrade! ✌

Will relevant sections of this forum also remain open for pre-22 versions of the F1 game?

Hey, @BarryBL! Did not see it coming and frankly, not very excited with the change.

Will you and the rest of the staff still hold your roles? Will we keep on seeing this amicable cartoon chap in this iconic red overalls on there? @PJTierney the same?

I already have a profile over there as GRID Legends moved a few months ago 🙂 

I'm busy with lots of things as you can imagine, but I'll pop in every so often to say hello.

All those early years of lurking but never commenting have now gone to waste! 

I never really like change anyway so i'm not surprised i'm not enthused by this news.  Hopefully the new forums are still open to feedback and it's not all Bolshevik-like where any negative feedback gets you a mysterious black mark on your name!   Here has always felt like a relatively safe place to express constructive criticism but a new place can come with a new atmosphere. 

At risk of going off on a tangent from the subject matter; It does feel like EA are confident in this new F1 enterprise though, which is a good thing.  By migrating their forums over to their house and changing all the social media to have EA in the name, it does feel like they're comfortable putting their name on everything.  This isn't just a backseat driver chipping in resources and hoping for the best, they're all-in on this.  Whether people will see that as a positive or negative, I guess that's something time will tell.

This too. 

I've said it countless times that we here are privileged for having one of the best communities there is. I say "one" not because it is not The One, just because there are another select few... Anyway, what @BarryBL and the guys achieved here is rare and no easy feat.

They put a familiar face to a game company facing the general public with no barrier of entry (other than signing up to the forum) and established a function channel of communication going both ways. This and the overall tone, remarkably amicable and personal in an era of detached canned sentences in a poorly strung up English.

A channel that works both ways and enable us all to engage with the people making these games, a fact (among many others) I'm sure @ScaredDuck appreciates.

And now I'm reactivating a 10 years old forum account with zero activity other than a handful of read posts. That says it all.

C'mon, we do not even get proper avatars or profile pics there! Barry is f. Hazard?! HAZARD?! Why, there's no Lukaku to choose from?!

And I’ve busted my behind detoxing and making this place fun engaging place for everyone.  I mean when I first got here the toxicity was off the scale.,, . 😇😂

But then maybe it was because I got a awesome reply to one off my very first post from some Brazilian know it all that made me like this place.  First impressions and all that. 😁

The little I know off EA forums is the amount off people who get banned for mentioning scripts and fifa in the same sentence.  So I’m not going to last long

Atleast I got to 1000.  🏆

I personally was not happy we didn't have a Saka, Martinelli or ESR available. Not even a Henry!!! (Like I could use them, no chance 😛 )

Thanks for the kind words @marioho. However, I will try and get us some F1 options for EA Answers HQ.

Will say best thing about this forum other than me and @mariohois having a human @BarryBL that’s a direct link to the devs.  And takes a lot off skill and inches(thick as) to be the meat in a all to often toxic sandwich.
