Suzuki Pikes Peak, Upcoming in PL7, Pricing Adjustments
The next Tri-Series event will award the highly-coveted Suzuki Pikes Peak. Long-time players will remember that we originally gave this car out as a prize back in October 2017, and we know a lot of players are keen to have another chance to win it. The first round of this event starts tonight.
Note that any players who won the Suzuki Pikes Peak the first time around will not be able to enter the final. They will instead be able to enter an exclusive and highly rewarding previous-winners event.
Upcoming Features in PL7
With Top Drives turning one year old and still going strong, we thought it was a good time to review some of the most-requested changes that players asked for since launch but hadn’t made it in yet. This isn’t a complete list for PL7, but here’s what you can definitely expect when that update hits.
Want to stop cars from being accidentally fused? Locking cars is coming. Lock a car from your garage and it won’t appear in the Fuse screen, and it won’t be sellable either.
Better Fuse material browsing
When you have a lot of cars, swiping through that fuse list can be tricky. We’re adding a ‘next page’ button so you can easily tap your way through to the cars you’re looking for.
Play cards in any order
You read that right. If you know which car you want to play on the 4th challenge, you’ll be able to drag it straight on there, to make it easier to figure out where to place your remaining cars.
More American cars
As some of you guessed from some marketing tests we ran, we’re going to be adding more American cars, from some of the most-requested manufacturers. If you’ve been waiting for Dodge, you won’t have to wait much longer.
Okay, here’s the unpopular one. From early on, players noticed that prices on Android were cheaper in some countries - sometimes a lot cheaper. Google Play make it very easy to adjust prices, so we thought we would use this to offer cheaper prices in countries where the average population has a lower income. But this created a discrepancy with players on iOS, where we can’t make such adjustments.
We revisited this decision, and we now think the difference in some countries is too large. Effective immediately, countries where Android prices were significantly lower than iOS will see higher prices than before. This includes Russia, Romania and India among others.
Do note that we will continue to review our pricing policy and may make further adjustments in future.
