If you’ve taken a look at the Mercedes’ Live Race Seasonal Event, you’ve probably noticed that many players atop the leaderboards scored their times by exploiting “shortcuts” around the track.
This has been a significant topic of discussion in our forums, and Polyphony Digital has announced they will, thankfully, be addressing these issues in an update coming next Thursday, September 22nd. The update will adjust the “driveable areas” of the Top Gear Test Track, reset the leaderboards, and extend the duration of the Seasonal Event.
According to another announcement, the game’s online service will be offline while these changes are applied, between 3:00AM and 4:00AM, British Summer Time on the 22nd. Thanks to Vaughn for the early tip!
