Tuesday, August 27, 2019 - Announce video


The #ForzaRC2019 Invitational Series was revealed during on the August 27th #ForzaMonthly livestream by Lead Producer for Forza Esports Wes Eckhart, Design Director Elliott Lyons, and caster Alie Tacq.

They discussed the season broadcast calendar and the professional teams approach, which will consist of 3 drivers and a coach. Team rosters are TBA, but Elliott Lyons mentioned that some of the team coaches will also be familiar faces from ForzaRC history. Alie Tacq discussed the strategic element to racing with the teams format.

The 13 teams announced:
@THR_esports Team Highlands Racing
@SauberEsports Sauber Esports
@Lazarus Lazarus
@JOTA_eSport JOTA eSport
@AMS_RacingTeam Alien Motorsport
@Ryze_Msport Ryze Motorsport
Mordor Game Club Team Forza
@WilliamsEsports Williams Esports
@SMP_Racing Esports
@FastRacersForza FRF
@redbullracingES Red Bull Racing Esports
@VDbyTX3 Virtual Drivers by TX3
@raging_e Raging Dragon Esports

Eliott Lyons and Chris Esaki also addressed community Q&A at the end of the livestream related to Forza in general and ForzaRC specifically, including topics of anti-cheat efforts and homologation. The next #ForzaMonthly livestream will be on September 23rd and take more questions via the Bing thread.

Watch the replay on Forza’s official YouTube channel here.

When we will have another ForzaRC for players to register and participate??

Pretty clear that such an event won’t be happening.

I watched as much as I could because I participated. I likely won’t be watching as much this time. I’m more interested in the format than the teams or players.

It is probably fair to say that this is basically a live beta that’ll eventually be expanded probably for FM8. If this format works for a small group of players, then it could expand. Historically every single FRC or esports comp hosted by T10 has been problematic for one reason or another. A solid format was never really found and when issues came up, it was a hot mess to remedy the problems in a timely manner. Maybe they are on to something?
