Liked the EVO III, in my opinion this car comes 2nd after the Lancia Delta in driving feel among the 90s AWD cars.

The change in Open Class Tour is a mixed bag. Nice to have 6 series covering more classes. But with only 3 short races and a new -not announced- practice limit that ends the practice session automatically at the end of 2nd lap (no optional 10 minutes) means that some cars need to be taken to FreePlay to get it to top of its class.

The OCT practice should be back to the optional 10 minutes or at least make it longer than the 2 lap limit.

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III GSR is fun with the turbo upgraded on stock tyres, shame I feel like this bloke when driving it interior no wheel

Hope that the seating/camera positioning is added next update as its too far forward and too high up, makes it feel like I’m driving a jeep, also what’s with the no tyre wear in the first fomo event?, was doing handbrake slides every corner cause it’s awd and not a movement in the wear whatsoever

It’s 18 races to complete the series, as opposed to the previous 16. The first race in D class was also well over 8 minutes in length, whereas the Open events used to be relatively short.

It seems likely to take quite a lot longer to finish than previously. A far more customer-friendly approach would have been to require 4 of the 6 events to be completed, giving players the option of which events to do (or to do all of them if they wished).

This featured German rivals lobby is nice, tho cars are definitely not track ready :sunglasses:, I would appreciate sport suspension.

Problem is most of players don’t even know how to shift these cars, making them lose lot of time on straights (short shifting, and no m/c)

Agree on the total time of the tour. However, each series is shorter. I don’t mind the number of races decrease to 3, but they should’ve made the race abit longer and definitely shouldn’t takeaway the optional extended practice.

I get your point about the reward (FOMO) car. No doubt this is bad in all measures.

My point is about the BuildersCup -or what remains of it- to use instead of FreePlay.

Single player took a nose dive (for me) in update 7 and 8. Came back with update 9 to the level of updates 4 and 5. Thanks mainly to featured tour.

OCT offers wider choices and replaying opportunity during the 4 weeks if all is good. If not, then it last two days and stayed untouched tell next update.

I noticed that a good update makes me spend 25 to 30 hours playing the game Vs 8 to 10 hours in a month.

The Open Tour reward Lambo is absolute garbage.

Anything FOMO is absolute garbage. This system of rewards that roll out over time is so shortsighted. They need to start making these rewards permanent! Horrible
