I lost the logo I had completed with this. 😥
 
Adding more grand race routes is nice, but they really need to filter more categories than just like hypercar or ST2 they’ve done since launch. People just use the same meta cars and they could be doing German racing or JDM or something to add more variety. They already do it in the summits.

TC2 to me is all about a good roadtrip with other players with the track editor. I'm positively surprised by how IVT implemented boat and plane racing for the track creator in MAD: Part 2

...Only thing that "kinda" makes me "MAD" is TC2 is going on life support. Here's hoping they don't scrap the game too soon.
Yeah, i'm actually spending more time in TC2 after this was implemented, due to the additions of Planes and boat community generated races. I have noticed that the CR and loot that you get has increased significantly which is allowing me to get the legendary parts i am missing from boats and planes, as i did not want to grind these before.
 
Legacy Mainstages sound interesting!

Looking forward to see what they mean by ''New Content will be added every second week'', as in, I wonder if the Featured Legacy Mainstages be permanent or swapped.

I tried the new direct mode option in controls but don’t know if I’ll bother learning it.

It turns off all controller filters and makes steering way more sensitive and super twitchy. It’s faster for competitive modes so might make the summit harder.

I think it felt better on a bike or in a plane but i use a wheel so i haven't tried car's yet.

My ps5 started having disk read issues just MF at first now gt7 and pc3 i did a cache clear and rebuilt the HD but it's still the same "sigh" after loads of trying it loaded and i went to the garage & i can report the loading of the cars still sucks. If you d/l a paint job it's even worse they took forever i'm glad i didn't install many livery's after they stopped you entering them in the custom show :(
 
Before it get patched use this new event for money, parts or xp. It's insanely efficient and probably even better than Peacock. Although you can't use Drag cars.



Main Stage Legacy is coming on March 20th.
 
I gotta try that new grind out, I still mostly grind on TC2 and import the cars to Motorfest. I get 30k something around every 40 seconds in a takedown event.

I used a Bucks Magnet set with maxed Rich and Clean Driver affixes and get 43k credits per run on the love story event in under a minute.

That’s pretty good.

Does doing main stage vs. AI have an ending point or does it just recycle through events procedurally? Curious if I were to do a long gaming session if it would go back to the first event.

Well, it was fun while it lasted... for like a week 😆
 
Personally, I think that Ivory Tower's gonna reduce the Love Story's rewards to a "Kiss Me Kombi" level (about 9k xp and 18k credits iirc), although I was able to max Alpha GP, Racing, Rally Raid, Rallycross and Motocross when it lasted.

IT: We at the Ivory Tower are constantly working on making the best experience for all the players. That is the purpose of today maintenance too!
Players: Cool! You gonna improve stability due to the latest frequent crashing?
IT: Ehm... no.
Players: Are you bringing more PvP options?
IT: Silly you. Of course not..
Players: Then what's the reason?
IT: We are going to temporarily reduce the rewards for the Love story. We don't want you to grind the same events over and over.
Players:.... Back to grind Kiss me Kombi I guess.
New Rewards:
XP - 5,280
Bucks - 9,000

How outrageous!

I'm not interested in XP or bucks, so I'm not dissatisfied with the nerf itself.
But I'm frankly appalled at how quickly they acted on these nerfs while leaving most of the bugs in the livery editor untouched.
Yes, I understand the difference in difficulty between fixing bugs and simply nerfing rewards, but...
 
It’s pretty sad the best way to get parts is treasure boxes as they keep killing anything else. People want to grind for parts and money, just make a huge race or something.

But they gotta keep the grind going otherwise all they have is two PvP modes and the summit. They take 3 months to add a playlist and you do it in an hour.

If the loot drop rewards get nerfed, invest in legendary sets that have the 2x loot drop affix and legend points on both Loot Drop and Loot Quality.

Keep legendary parts for more bucks and xp affixed, all at XP and bucks at maximum in order to alternate farm.

Did Ubisoft somehow mess up the AI for Powerboat races with the last update? I literally cannot win even against level 1 AI
