Rarity changes in PL7 (October 2018)

Hutch_TimHutch_Tim Administrator, Hutch Staff Posts: 327 admin
With the upcoming release of PL7, the following cars will change in rarity:



As a one-off change, the El Camino SS 454 is being raised by 1 RQ (and so to Super Rare) to recognise how disproportionately useful it is as a specialist.

Regarding the Cadillac CTS-V prize car, we want to move away from the artificial prestige-based rarity ratings. In 6.0 we made the Volvo 850 BTCC prize car an Epic. We’re carrying on this trend with making the Cadillac prize car a Legendary, as per their stats. Neither car has been awarded to date. There are 7 remaining models judged to be Epics that ‘should’ be Legendary. These have not been changed.

    Hey Tim,

    Will the CTS-V also be corrected? Currently it has the 2015 year, 2015 image, but 2016 specs. The CTS-V is a bit tricky as the new (and current) generation CTS went on sale for the 2014 model year, but it did not get the 640hp 'V' treatment until the 2016 model year. For the 2014 and 2015 model year the CTS-V continued to be the old generation 556 hp coupe and sedan while the new generation sedan was also being sold in regular versions (2.0T, 3.6, V-Sport).

    That's rather surprising. Mazda brought a lot of reshuffling and these are either related to stat changes, specialist or prestige issues. Is it the final list or just the stuff unaffected by new cars?

    The Mazda update RQ reshuffle included RQ changes for the cars in PL7

    Ooh I see! 
    ...why were the teaser cars annotated as 'rq not final' then though?

    yeah but honestly, they did pretty good job last time and i don't see many cars that need change at all

    also, this is only rarity changes, more cars will probably change RQ

    Yea I'm one of those who hoped for more rarity changes. Always nice with easy food for my tier B and A cars. Not this time though.

    To be fair, the list is only cars that are changing rarity. The BBR could very well go up to RQ14.

    It could, but it should really be a C class.

    El Camino, Silverado, Escalade, the exact three cars I started collecting since the first informations on proposed changes. :) Haven't pulled too many though. What to do with a fully upgraded RX-8? Sell and buy a ceramic?

    Yeah definitely. You could watch the ads to upgrade a new one when it becomes rare. it'll cost less to upgrade it again

    RQ16 MAZDA RX-8

    used a stock one as food and the fully upgraded sold and bought a ceramic....dropped lucky got a 2nd RQ22 Patrol Nismo...suppose 2nd is 996 as the 1st was 969

    Hurrrah!  The death of the El Camino is upon us!

    I don't think it will die. It will be the best dragger of the C class easily, and as for the D class, the Corvette 396 will take it's place instantly.

    Or in 7.0, we get a Dodge that's better than the Corvette 396.

    Yeah Dodge and the new Chevys can change everything of course.

    I'd just like to throw it out there that I would be pretty frustrated if the remaining A-classes over RQ 26 were converted to S-classes.

    I haven't managed to get any of them yet (no luck/missed glitched packs), and having them pushed up to legendary would be yet another barrier between me and a relevant Audi hand, or even German hand in general. It would also worsen the already existing snowball effect - people that put a lot of money toward the game early have a growing lead rather than a diminishing one, as it is now even harder for others to catch up.
    You forgot Japanese hand (furai)...

    I think RQ changes of epic-legendary should be avoided at ALL costs. You just kill the car for anyone who pulls as a legendary. The proof lies in the cayenne GTS I just won. It’s stock, and useless.

    That being said, non-awarded prize cars are fine, do what you like! Any guesses to the 7 other epics that should be legendary?
