I also initially thought the price of cars in this game had been inflated somewhat. Until i realized when you buy a car, you also buy all the mods that homologate it to its assigned class. You cant just buy a "stock" car anymore, although you can choose to have all the stock parts equipped when you buy it. Which is nice cuz I usually like to tinker with the combo of parts myself to get it up to its required level since some of forzas choices for mods are often questionable. Either way you still get all the mods whether you want them or not.

It is also so very supremely shitty what they did to the people that shelled out the extra cash to get VIP status, which USED to mean you got a permanent credit bonus to every race you did, except now they give you 5 consumable mod cards that give you a 100% credit bonus, and each card has 5 uses. So basically after 25 races, your VIP don't mean shit.

The tiered car system can also be a little frustrating, but at the same time, Ive basically remained in the first tier of career races trying to get as many of those done as possible before I move on the 2nd tier, and I'm already into the 4th car tier (theres only 5)

From all the complaints I keep reading about the game, all my brain hears are people complaining they actually have to PLAY this game. None of what turn 10 has done takes away from how the cars drive, how they sound, how the tracks look, how fun the races are, and THATS why I play this game. I love taking an off the wall car I wouldn't normally even think twice about like the 97 Maserati Ghibli, modifying it, and discovering its an absolute blast to race with. No stupid crates or tiers or anything is gonna take that away from me. Im gonna play the game either way and enjoy it, and as more things unlock and become available to me, i'll be ready to enjoy them too.

But maybe I'm just strange.
Apparently due to the shitstorm the VIP thing caused they are now going to give all VIP members 1 million credits and switch it back to double credits for every race

Not sure when itíll go live but glad they reacted.

This is nice. Thought it was crap that they just gave the 5 double points VIP cards.

My only complaint is the stupid amount of hidden cars. I just want to tinker with a Fiesta ST or Chevy SS and run them in Free Play but guess I’ll have to figure out how to go about unlocking those.

I’m totally ok with them doing away with the assists giving you added points. Forces you to turn up the drivatar difficulty and become a better driver.

Woo! Got my free million credits and free FE cars! And im also now at the 5th (and final) tier level for the cars And I still have 3 race events left in the first career level, and I've only done 1 showcase event in the 2nd. Yeah, its really tough to progress in this game. And those loot crates are just SO INTERFERING. Ive only ever redeemed the free ones I got at the start of the game, and have not purchased a single one yet.

Checked stock tons of stores around me have it on the shelf. Who orders games to be shipped once they are already out??

That and digital downloads...... (unless trade in for pennies means something to you)

Freakin polaris rzr races it is at once the most fun and most frustrating thing ive ever piloted.

Only have the trophy truck and open wheel races left to do in the first race tier. And i just scored me an open wheel car from the showcase event in the 2nd race tier. Currently sitting on about 1.8 million credits and have about 50 cars in my garage ive probably only actually bought maybe 3 or 4 of them.

I don’t understand how people can be good at the RZR races without a wheel. The turning is so damn touchy from great turn to skid or bounce is so frustrating.

I knocked out the T1 muscle car race, so here are my impressions from that glimpse of gameplay.

Highs
-Beautiful game. More so than the demo, it seems. The sparkle of the rain on other cars and the sky rendering is gorgeous. Can't wait to play 4K.
-So many cars. In the muscle car class, it was almost surreal being surrounded by the entire muscle car era. With 24 cars on the track, it didn't seem like there were duplicates.
-It's fun. There's beating and banging and the AI can't spin you out with a little nudge like PC2. The cars feel planted, even for skinny tire C2 Corvette with 427, which is unrealistic but fun.
-The new user interface is very good. Can change cars at the track and easily do what you need to at the race screen.

The bad
-Loading times suuuuuuuck. Really slow to start a race. And it's annoying that there seems to be a loading tile, then resets to a race screen. And sometimes the race starts when I didn't ask it too - need to find out what's going on.
-AI are tanks that are hard to move and drive like online players and not race car drivers - again, this game is on the fun side and not simulation side.
-Rain course doesn't drive very differently than dry. While pretty, I didn't observe a big difference between rain and dry dynamics, unlike PC2 where the wheel gets lighter in the rain.
-Cars don't feel substantially different from each other.

Overall, it's a fun game so far and the car list alone makes it worthwhile.

As far as the rain goes did you turn off the assist for it? Also you can turn off the aggression of the AI cars.
