I’ve done only 3 championships in the Seeker (first) cup so forgive if it changes in later cups but I have a few points to make.
So Forza Motorsport is considered to be a serious “simulatory” racing game. But how can you take it seriously when stuff like this is normal:
- There’s no qualifying. You always start in the middle of the pack and have to fight your way through, super aggressively I might add if you play on default race length.
- There are no penalties for cutting corners or ramming your opponents.
- Said opponents aren’t affected by mechanical failures and tyre wear.
- Races in the same championship award different amount of SP. Why bother winning race 1 for 100 SP if you can win race 4 for 400 SP?
Also, Ken Block decided to pit after the first lap in a two lap race during his showcase, effectively letting me win without trying. What a nice dude.
