It’s a shame top drivers can’t be trusted to drive cleanly when the penalty system is lenient. Although I guess there will always be one to spoil it for the rest.
There was a 6-12 month period when most driver seemed content. Still didn’t stop some top driver’s whining each time they came out on the wrong end of a 50/50 clash.
Just roll back the penalty system and concentrate on what this game really needs. More single-player events, stronger AI for said single-player events. And a handful of modern race cars in Gr1, Gr2, Gr3, Gr4.
I haven't mentioned tomorrow's 'update' in the article.Please note that this update mentioned in the article appears to be server side work, no actual game update file is mentioned so it must be related to the penalty system or the actual servers given recent disconnect issues et all.
And after the update the penalty system will hand out 5s penalties if you're side-by-side with someone for too long.Please note that this update mentioned in this thread appears to be server side work, no actual game update file is mentioned so it must be related to the penalty system or the actual servers given recent disconnect issues et all.
Wish a dev could chime in on what should be done with the penalty system.
Cause all we can do right now is guess.
It's not so much that they start from scratch. All along, the system has only worked with extremely simple conditions. Contact, change of position, leaving the track etc. All they have ever done, in the time I've been playing, is basically turning individual conditions on or off, and reversing who gets given the penalty for any condition. E.g. we had one version where the car overtaking with contact got a penalty. Then it got turned off. Then it got turned back on but then the car being overtaken got the penalty. On. Off. Reversed. It's all that ever changes.It seems like they start from scratch every time they adjust the penalty system. They can never find a happy medium, something always has to be to the extreme. It's getting old.
Agreed. If there’s anybody that PD would listen to, it’d be the prominent FIAGTC players.
"Fix it quickly" might be what led us to this shambles in the first place.
and I don't understand how they can continually get this one aspect of it so wrong.
Online game without a proper communication with the active community is just ridiculous.
