Not surprised, just disappointed with GT7.
Yet another lackluster update with a handful of events which don't solve the issues with the game that many playing are crying out for.
There must be only a few channels where PD read/receive feedback and it's clearly not from the places we're raising our thoughts.
With how fast these events can be completed (I didn't spend 4 million credits on the Valkyrie, knowing I wouldn't have anywhere else to use it after the three lap sprint) it's wasn't actually worth the time setting up my racing rig.
Again, just disappointed as there's so much potential here, they are actively not using it...
Well I agree other than the fact that the Valkyrie is pretty useful though. It will be good for all the WTC800 races, if you are bored at doing the typical racing car choices, and it can manage the fuel nicely too, a rare combo for a road car (well this 'road car' has 1000-1500 aero though) 😄. Also naturally it will get the job done in the Hypercar parade races. Not sure if you can classify these races as few, like 8-10 in total at least (haven't done the exact math).
Then there is the fact that Valkyrie beats a 919 Hybrid on a timed lap at Le Mans 24 with chicanes. That requires you to drain the hybrid/overtake energy pretty much, but even so it is damn impressive the 919 Hybrid loses by around 1,5 seconds. The car is just ridiculously fast in right hands. Only thing where it struggles is racing in endurance format due to rear tire wear which is pretty bad, and slightly fuel consumption too (these both compared to racing cars, but maybe not a totally 'fair' comparison 🤔). But in 800pp you can still make it work at Sardegna WTC800.
Then if you play GTWS races actively in sport mode, you get a lot of credits in the near future.
But yeah they should make the new events pay more. If not, then make the Human Comedy 1 hr races pay out every time you win one.
