    Online championships is fun but not like running your own championships in PC1. You can't set a default setup champ as not all the usual lobby settings are there.

    I like they way you can add or remove points after the championship is over as a manual penalty point system. So you could kind of override the game's penalty system. Each participant gets a copy of the championship standings on their machine.

    Although it did crash out in a new way between quali and race for one player.

    This really is needed because driving in the wet in a road car is pants. Handling is absolutely dreadful.

    Biggest question, is the lobby issue where you can't change from identical cars after changing class fixed?
  12. killerjimbag


    Says the guy that doesn't play the game. Irony!
    McKiernan and amazed like this.
  13. ScorpionTopaz


    Still not available in North America and probably all of the Western Hemisphere at that. I get they're not one of the biggest companies but you'd think being able to distribute something online worldwide wouldn't be an issue.

    I don’t recall patch 2.0 being late. It was released same day as EU but 6pm-7pm CST in my neck of the woods. So basically a time zone difference. But now looking like NA will be a day behind (at minimum).
    Yeah, I don’t understand the inconsistency. My FIFA 18 received its patch along with the rest of the world. Seems whatever SMS touches has difficulty with execution and delivery.

    Unfortunately they didn't get around to fixing the ridiculously low volume :(

    Everything else though IS GREAT!!!

    There is a LFE slider in audio now but that does nothing. The audio is still not where it should be. Hoping this is in the next round of "improvements".

    For North America PS4, I would not expect anything until 4pm local time. I don’t think PSN updates in the morning.
