    Uh, mine says the goal is 30,000 Drift Score for a lap. And I am having a helluva time trying to break the 30,000 threshold. My best score is 28,500 or so. I'm using the Monster themed Mustang RTR drift car, (I have tried a couple of other Non Drift tuned cars as well). I am a decent drifter, and up till now have achieved ever drift score necessary to collect bounty or achievement in Forzathon. (usually on the first try, actually every time )But now the bar is set to where I can't get it. Which I find strange, considering that all the other Forzathon tasks are all easy-peasy. I was going to say here earlier that the drift challenges have the scores set way too easy, but now I am faced with a Challenge that I haven't faced since the Bounty Hunter events. Considering that most of the Forzathon tasks read, 'complete a race...' This Drift task is fairly difficult. Oh and while the leaderboards read 22 thousand have tried, and 14,700 have gotten a score of 30,000. Those figures include all drift scores since last year, not just the ones for trying this particular event. I'll keep trying...

    With the release of all the cars for purchase, is the Forzathon now an after thought?

    What's the point? The credits?

    People complain for cars being locked, people complain for lack of motivation to play the game, people complain for lack of sound update... one thing I know for sure, there is always stuff to complain about, no matter what. But there is still hope in this world. Like @Ross Giese for example :cheers:

    It's almost as if it's possible to both enjoy playing a game and also simultaneously recognise that there are still plenty of perfectly valid complaints that could be made about it...

    The problem is, those complains are dichotomic. If MS locks cars behind things such as Forzathon, the decision is criticized. But if it hands them out freely, then that's just as bad. In other words, they're damned if they do and damned if they don't.

    Which would also be fine - a fanbase is made of different people that may desire and expect very different things from the object of their passion, after all - if it wasn't for all those schmucks pretending to speak "in the name of the community".

    All rewards are the point. What's not to like about a few extra credits and not having to spend credits on every car and suit?

    Sure, there were plenty of complaints about the TVR and Ferrari, but I had never heard anyone complain about Forza Edition cars being locked aside from the occasional muttering about the exclusive bodykits. A perfectly good solution could've been simply adding those bodykits as conversion options for their standard counterparts; this way they could appease players who only want the unique bodykits, whilst the rarity and credit bonuses of the actual FE cars keep players coming back for Forzathon challenges. Instead, not only have FE cars become readily available, but a lot of them are so cheap that they're not even worth selling on the auction house if you've been collecting duplicates (hell, the '93 SVT Cobra FE is 27000 credits cheaper than the standard car now). They didn't even unlock the MG MGA in the meantime for some bizarre reason - is that not worth complaining about if you're a fan of the car?

    I'm not going to pretend there's a magical solution to every problem that will fix everything, but Turn10 seems to be particularly good at CREATING dichotomic complaints. When players complained about rammers, their initial solution was to ban SUVs from racing online, and then not even return to that rule, since the Barrett-Jackson Ford Bronco hasn't been banned; when players wanted more than a week to grab an exclusive car they wanted, their initial solution was to put the speciality dealer on a loop for several weeks where no new cars were introduced; now when players have complained about a handful of locked standard cars, their solution involves unlocking the cars that were functionally designed to be unicorn cars that many players enjoyed unlocking, collecting, and selling. Just because a solution exists, it doesn't mean it's a good one - if you asked me to fix a squeaky door and my solution was to remove the entire door, would it be dichotomic to complain about how drafty it is all of a sudden?

    I didn't realize I was complaining? I was merely asking a question?
