Seems like the servers are back now.
I just tried to check and ended up doing a race at FE Hong-Kong Circuit.
To the best of my knowledge, stage 9.3 is glitched in some way. If you are at lower upgrades, Magnus will just pull away and the goal will fail. But as soon as you put on upgrades, particularly 1333333, Magnus suddenly becomes slow and you can easily complete the goal.
I played the event a while ago and I went to 3333333 from the start so I don't remember struggling at this goal.
Atleast it looks like this update will be light on gold, so more gold can be allotted to the Event Archives.
Poor and lonely Chiron got an ES :/
Finally got around to setting a time, after a couple of runs with the loaner-at-no-upgrades, I managed a 1:26.871, bottom of Group E. Might improve to stay here, as i don't think I'll be getting the car through the Archives.
With the TTC ending in a few hours, I finally found the motivation to improve my lap times. Managed a 1:18.911 within a few minutes which should hold in B for the remaining time. Same setup (D:Max, PL7, Spa Tuning Max)
As I had been fearing all week, I can't put together a lap worthy of Group A. Managed to better my time to 1:00.700 but it is still about a tenth short of Group A. Tough call, but I think I'll stop here, just to save my sanity.
And congrats to all who made it to Group A in such a tough week!
Thanks @LamboCoin Cars for the kind words and wishes!
Yes, it is a very tough week and Laguna Seca is not one of my best track either. Still, it pushes me to improve as a driver. Besides, majority of my Group A runs have come together on Monday, so I want to give it one last shot tomorrow.
And in case I miss out, we will get them next time!
After many small improvements, I have managed to shave my time down to 1:00.934, still about 0.3s out of A. I am being raced so hard!
I regret my decision, should have listened to LamboCoin 😆
@LamboCoin Cars Once in a while, it is good to spend your gold on a car that you like and have fun driving. 300 gold is not a lot for a car like that, and shouldn't do too much harm to your archives strategy either. And as you said, this will most probably be the cheapest way to get it.
So, in my opinion, you should get it.
Finally won the Ferrari from EA last night, and the only upgrade left to FU it was the last engine upgrade, which was done overnight.
First small session in the morning got me a 1:01.264, upper group B at the moment, about 0.5s from A. This is going to be tough! 😬
Same boat as many others, I don't have an IMSA GT3, and am currently going for the Ferrari from the Archives and with the sale and WTTT potential, it seems like a very good deal. Might FU it and try to go for Group A, even though it will be a hard one as many others will probably do the same. However, with no instant upgrades, it will take some time to complete it. In the meantime, my banker lap is a 1:11.392 with the Acura at no upgrades.
PS. Great job as always with the thread @LamboCoin Cars, all the info about the various upgrade trees is really handy!
Yes, yes. But just in case anyone who doesn't own either car wishes to participate, the LTS will at least provide an option 😉
Won't we be able to use the Chiron in it's ongoing LTS?
Finally got around to improving my time after sitting at the bottom of Group C for the week. 1:34.020, putting me in middle Group B.
Starting off the week in my Ferrari (D Max, PL7, Max Spa Tuning) with a time of 1:20.332, after a couple of runs, putting me in upper C. Lots of time to be made up.
I think there was a Time Trial competition a while ago, where the players were able to race Formula E drivers' times, but unfortunately I wasn't around so can't say much.
Am a little late as always, but extremely sad to see you go @ME7. As with many others, your videos always helped me out. I have always preferred your videos over others (no offense) as I felt your commentary made it all the more fun and interesting, not to mention your smoooooooth driving!
Thank you for all you did to help others, your presence will most certainly be missed. Wish you good luck in future!
"...This is ME7, signing off" Those words 😔
I got a pleasant surprise as well, I realised that I owmed the F12 TDF and it was already at 24 upgrades (probably from a LTS rerun).
My current time with the car is 1:36.383, which is worse than LamboCoin's R$ lap 😂
You can see here and decide which cars you want to win next. Most efficient strategies are all listed there.
Do note that it is not always possible to win the events with Minimum Strategy, it largely depends on your skills, and sometimes luck as well
I slid out of B this morning and as I was at the overall M$ cap, I decided to max out the GTE Setup and managed to set a time of 1:31.330 within a couple of runs, upper B.
