    Citroen DS3 Racing 2011 - not exactly high value but a bit of a change and it's a nice little car!

    Daily Workout #672- Jaguar E-type Coupé 1961 (495th double) I´m just glad that this car wasn´t the worst thing it had, and still without any signs of those five new cars yet....

    After getting yet another French car yesterday (Gr.4 Peugeot RCZ), I was pleasantly surprised by an original Countach tonight. And I didn't realize it until I looked in my garage, but it's my first! :dopey:

    ...and exactly why would PD stack the odds in favor of you receiving high-credit cars? The odds are always stacked in favor of the house and not the player. Besides, you'll feel much greater satisfaction if you earn those high-credit cars with sweat from grinding morning 'til night? It's multiple Honda Beats and Fiat 500s for you. /s

    I've said it before. Stop looking at the roulette while it's spinning. It's only going to lead to frustration and gnashing of teeth by just missing the car you so desperately want. Close your eyes until all the other cars are cleared away and you'll feel a lot better not knowing what cars you could have won.

    And NO, buying a unicorn vehicle does not favor you being gifted a unicorn vehicle. PD has you just where it wants you ...grasping for straws. /s

    The Catch 22 of not being able to sell gifted cars for credits tells me that PD doesn't want players to easily get high-credit vehicles. They want you to EARN them by driving around the clock in clean races using handicapped cars. It works, but it's extremely time-consuming.

    Not necessarily. Some people play the lottery for years and never hit it big. PD is supposedly using a house-stacked algorithm so that 99 times out of 100 roulettes, the cheapest car will be won by the player and that same car will be duplicated in subsequent roulettes. Oh, sorry. Maybe I shouldn't have told you that. Keep the faith, my brother...

  8. I understand what you are saying. And i understand PD's strategy all too well. However i haven't been racing for money all that often recently. This is not an excuse and i know that grafting and grinding for credits to earn our cars is what the aim of the game is. This is what i have been doing for long time.

    However the gifting system doesn't work for me anymore. Because in the past i have literally raced and earned money for every car in the game all except for the most expensive ones. I grinded with blood and sweat for a long time. I enjoyed the offline races. But i am a little fed up of this now.

    Just recently i tend to prefer spend more time in online lobby rooms free driving and meeting and playing with other players. I am more frustrated than ever grinding such a huge amount of credits in offline races for the most expensive cars.

    We can not sell and get money for these gift cars. We are given the same cars we have already been gifted 10 times. And Mr SirBerra, no i will no longer grind 10 million to 20 million which takes all too long just for one car.

    I don't mind earning my money through races through any moderately and more quickly achievable means for any normal appropriately priced cars. But i will not earn this much for days on end for one hugely priced vehicle.

    As for the future gift cars, they will be scrapped, deleted instantly since they now offer no reward for me any meaningful way.

    As for those few players who have endured for days or weeks or months depending on your play style and duration, well done to you. The expensive 10 20 million cars will stay the relics that they are.

    Daily Workout #673- Nissan Silvia K's Dia Selection (S13) 1990 (This was the first of the 5 new cars that were recently released, and the luck was on my side, even though the Lancia Stratos was also another good option for me.....)

    After a fairly okay week, I'm getting garbage again. And on a weekend.
    Oh, and this was one of those huge troll type wheels where it's a Prototype, a Formula car, another Prototype, and a crappy N or useless Group X car. Basically, if I see a single crappy car on my wheel of seemingly good cars, I can kiss those good cars goodbye. Nice to know that my rule still remains unchanged in this update. :grumpy:

    Last time I was on, which was Friday, I got the Mach Forty. Which is a car I still didn't have. I got on today, and was gifted the Infiniti VGT. Another car I didn't have. Pretty happy with those!

    Daily Workout #675- BMW Z8 2001 (497th double) I got my third copy of this car, and also the third time that I get it in a red colour......It would been actually a lot worth it, if it was in any other colour, other than red......

    I was starting to think GTS hated me, giving me all the hot hatches, the original Beetle, the Fiat 500, and my 500th NSX Rally Car......

    Monday, September 2nd, 2019: Chevrolet Camaro Z28 (N300)

    Fantastic. Not only do I miss out on a P1 GTR AGAIN for a miserable road car, but I miss out on it for a duplicate. Wheel, if I'm not going to get the exclusive track day car, don't even bother putting it on my wheel. At least it slid past the Impreza, but that doesn't automatically make it good because it stopped a space before the P1. If this pursues, then I may just have to put this version of the Camaro on my list of "Cars I no longer accept" list. I don't want to, because I have a likeness towards the car, but I will if it happens one more time. :grumpy:

    Wow, received the Mercedes AMG F1 W08 EQ Power+ Colour Variation today - sure makes up for yesterday! Livery editor, here I come (I have the Petronas version and it can't be edited, pretty sure this new one can as it comes in a plain red package!)

    Oh.... that's disappointing, it can't be used in the livery editor either. :confused:
