Now that the can is open on discussing future content (note: I didn’t start it), I thought I’d revisit some of the things that REALLY need fixing.
HINT: It’s not new cars. There is not a new car they could add to the game that is different enough from something we already have to get me excited. Rest assured, though, there will be new cars. And that’s good – that’s what brings in new players and it’s how the developers make money.
I really isn't even new content. Just make the game better by improving the player experience. What we really need is:
First and foremost, the daily M$ cap is just F’n stupid. Make it weekly on the same schedule as WTT and OMP. Easy, and infinitely more user-friendly. I completely understand WHY (meaning the business reasons) the developers want to regulate M$ accumulation rate and total accumulation, so don’t lecture me on that. The daily rhythm is just too rigid. And since the daily reset is at a different time of day depending on where you live, the system is inherently unequal. The impact of the 0:00 UTC reset is very different in US than in Europe which is quite different from Asia. If I could change just one thing, this would be it. Make it a M$1,750,000 weekly limit and give the players that much more flexibility.
Speaking of M$ - there really needs to be more M$ variety. The mid and short-length track are severely underused in motorsports series. I don’t care that the cars might not actually race on those variants in real life. Does any series really race on Melbourne? I don't recall NASCAR racing in Great Britain last year. This is a game, it’s not reality. Short tracks are wicked fun - especially for endurance. And they are there, so use them!
Speaking of M$, part 2 - Motorsports cars should have Invitationals, not Exclusives. And they should pay M$ (as should all Motorsports series). The fundamental difference is Invitations have other makes on the grid. It’s been done for F1, do the same for other motorsports cars. And if one car from a season has an invitational, so should the others just like F1.
For the love of…do something with the principal or get rid of it.
80 % of the regular game content is too easy. Car acquisition consumes 75% of a car’s upgrades – but we don’t need that PR until after 75% of the car’s series is completed. Should be the other way around. And regular series BOTs should be more competitive. Not ignorant and belligerent – competitive.
Cars should actually touch when they collide. I’m tired of thinking I’ve got enough room then getting punted by an invisible force field.
Fix the darn scrolling, already – WHY when I scroll to legend, and then back out do I have to scroll to legend again???
Going backwards should take you back to where you came from:
· Why does entering WTT from the main menu dump back out to round hub?
· Why does jumping to a series from the garage not go back to the garage?
Add a freakin' "GO HOME" button already so all the back steps can be bypassed
And last on my long list of things that will never come to pass: We need more Exclusives for older cars that are actually fun – not just expensive. Fun cars like the Shelby Cobra 427, Audi R8 Coupe/Spyder, Lotus Exige 360, BMW Z4 GT3, Jaguar E-Type Lightweight, Porsche Boxter GTS, Nissan Group A Skyline GT-R, Jaguar XE SV Project 8, Nissan 370Z R3 Spec just to name a few.
