    If it doesn't then PD or Kaz need shooting.

    They've already shot themselves in the foot by removing Shuffle in the first place, maybe they'll save us the trouble of shooting them by shooting themselves in the foot again by not putting it back in! I sincerely hope not, I needs me Shuffle init!

    If you're having trouble finding decent Shuffle-Style online lobbies in GT6 for stock car racing on sensible tyres, then this is the club for you.

    I just got GT6 and I am dissapointed to see shuffle mode is gone. I liked it because everyone was driving stock cars, no need for having a completely tuned super car.

    Bring back the Shuffle but make it better. Add all the series production cars.
    Add a race car and rally car shuffle.

    Yup, dropped $60 and feel as if I was robbed.

    I've raced shuffle in your room before-shuffle was the best racing EVER. :mad:

    I did the same thing-loved watching that close racing.

    I voted yes for you @Billsippi I know how much you hated your cars 2-wheeling and flipping over.

    And I know there are soooo many people that really love shuffle racing.

    Personally, I never liked shuffle racing. I like to tune my cars. I really like the Idea of buying and tuning a car to be competitive.

    It really isn't that hard to stop a car from flipping/2 wheeling.

    If the car is balanced, just increase, incrementally, by the same %, the front and rear springs.

    I'm a rubbish tuner so SHUFFLE was all I did. On GT5, once I joined a room, I would stay all night. On GT6 it could take up to 20 mins between selecting online and getting on the track what with finding a good room, realising there is no tyre restriction, finding another room, watching them smash into each other, finding another room, waiting for them to finish, or not finding a room at all. Scroll down the list. See SHUFFLE. Good amount of players. Join. Race. Simple. Maybe it wasn't so popular as I got used to seeing the same names. But then you get to know drivers and vice versa. When you're racing people you've met before, it's so much better. More respect. This is, in my opinion, what SHUFFLE is all about.

    BRING BACK SHUFFLE.

    Please.

    I sold my GT6 copy... it was just collecting dust. I was hoping Shuffle would be brought back with an update but got tired of waiting. This game was a waste of money. I learned my lesson, I won't buy another GT...

    Yes! I want Shuffle to get back to GT6... I used to race the Online Shuffle races in GT5... It was so fun... Now, without shuffle, it isn't the same...

    That's a shame that Shuffle Racing isn't in GT6... One request: PD, please bring back the Shuffle Racing!

    Why introduce "Quick Match" when all they had to do was reintroduce "Shuffle"

    Seriously it's like watching the designers of the Austin Allegro at work - designer spends many hours staring at steering wheel - "No we can't have that - it's too round - we need something new - a square steering wheel - and we'll get the Marketing Department to come up with a catchy name for it - behold the Quartic Wheel"

    [​IMG]
    Above - the Austin Allegro, considered by many to be the worst car ever made. Below the infamous Austin Allegro "Quartic" steering wheel - definitely not BL's finest hour just as the abolition of Shuffle and introduction of Quick Match is not PD's finest hour. Come on Kaz - wake up!

    Fun

    You and me both

    Had i known, i damn sure would not have wasted my money on this crap

    Thanks friend, just took my wheel down, and put the table in the garage. I might be back one day in the future, but for now I'm just too disgusted with the whole state of the game. A real shame too, been playing only gt since 1999, and now they have pushed me away cause they know best, I guess.

    You plan on getting a Club together again. I just hope this is a high number limit on this new feature as far as members go.

    @jflomario - I don't think there is any member limit for new clubs, as many people who want to join can.

    There are so many other things that need to be addressed and/or added that Shuffle Racing is pretty far down the list. There is nothing wrong with it, but if it takes the place of other things that need to be added first, then I'd rather not see it.

    ...but I'd rather have this than B-spec. That :censored: was the most useless part of GT5. I got more use out of Horns and Museum Cards.

    This thread is one year old today, & still not so much as even one word from PD regarding Shuffle. With well over 80% of people wanting it back, I think PD's level of sheer ignorance towards their customer base is utterly appalling & totally inexcusable. Even if there was no plan of having Shuffle in GT6, it wouldn't have hurt them to simply let us know.

    Don't know if discussed before, but would it take a lot of programing; or whatever they do at PD; to add shuffle back in the game ? .... If they do add it in the next update or whatever update, then I hope it would have an even wider range of cars than GT5.

    Does anyone really hold out any hope that shuffle will return to GT6? I think it was dropped because online wasn't flooded with Shuffle lobbies. 8 or 10 or 15 a night wasn't enough to justify updating a whole slice of programming for the game, nor apparently hitting the copy/paste buttons. A classic case of missing the forest for the trees on PD's part.

    It's not pretty far down according to this list: https://www.gtplanet.net/forum/board/kazunori-yamauchi-qa/?order=first_post_likes
    It's been in the top 10 of questions to PD ever since I posted it there.

    Still no word from PD... I know us shuffleheads are a very small percentage of the total number of daily users, but I still feel it's a shame PD doesn't seem to care... :( Not holding my breath anymore for it to get fixed in GT6. Hope it comes back in GT7, but I'm not getting a PS4 untill I'm absolutely sure shuffle is back in.
