Yeah, I was skimming the Reddit and the people (quite rightly) are not too happy.It’s not going well for their comms guys on Reddit after that post
Totally.ending support after 2 months is nonsense.
They switched graphics engines mid-development, seems the priority before release was making it look good and worthy of an official title, rather than actually making it work properly.I hired Ocon as he seemed super reliable, and one of those managing the tires the best during my first 3 seasons. I fired Piastri because too many crashes, and very poor tire management.
Guess what's happening after 2 gps. Ocon spinning around in Bahrein, finishing 18 (!!!), crashing in Jeddah on lap 2 (Red Flag) and Piastri becoming suddenly a top driver with perfectly fine tire management.
Not sure I will keep playing this stuff much longer. How flawed it is...
By the way no one mentions that, but it's crazy we see the tire wear of the other drivers. Frontier thinks it's publicly available data? Same for the car analysis, this is even crazier to think we can rank all the cars in terms of "low speed corners in dirty air" for instance.
This PR mess at the moment is appaling. We all paid a full price game which is , let's be honest, a beta. I don't understand why this game has its own excellent graphics but on the other sides lacks a lot of the basic rules or mecanisms of F1. Plus , reference to the above experience, it seems scripted and have hidden rules we can't do anything about.
It definitely seems that way. Have a feeling no matter who you hire, the player cars are programed to make more mistakes. Even more so when you are in a good poistion.Plus , reference to the above experience, it seems scripted and have hidden rules we can't do anything about.
Well done! Finally secured a 1-3 with Ocon and Gasly at Imola 2025. Solid pace nothing special explaining the performance. Might be a good season (once I fix the buildings etc... how annoying...)I won the constructors and drivers championship (with Zhou) during my 5th season with Williams. The car's strength was making downforce at low/medium/high speeds and acceleration under DRS. It wasn't good at anything else, so it made most of the races exciting and not total dominations. Heck, I only managed one pole position the entire season (Suzuka). Below are the images at the end of the season detailing the numbers, plus the car analysis for the start of season 6.
For season 6, I dropped Albon and promoted Vesti to start. And my 2027 car appears to be dominant. Even with the 50% reduction in performance in all areas.
I'll be launching my Seb career on Sunday after he waves goodbyeDecided to end my Alpine save and start what will be my long term, on and off again save back at Williams. This time with Schumacher and Piastri as my drivers. Going to try and do it properly this time, instead of just giving up on development halfway thru year 1, like I did in my previous Williams save.
May have underestimated how tough the first year will be though. Not even mentioning Mick and Oscar's tendency to lock up and crash. I forgot exactly how bad Williams is initially. At least the board expectations are low for the first few years.
Here's the order of influence for car parts. From most to least. In terms of which ones you need to develop, you'll need to check to see how your car's part(s) ranks amongst your rivals from the Car Analysis screen. Then you can determine how you need to develop the part.I have been playing fair and square since day one with Williams not trying to use the flaws of the game - still to this day I'm not sure which developments are most beneficial. It's been quite a bumpy ride but ultimately it took me 3 seasons to fight the Ferraris and RedBull and that's realistic. The car lacks top speed (apparently) but is fast in corners. In my 2025 season, no Vettel, no Hamilton, no Alonso!
Nice. Will have to try it out tonight.New update - sounds good
