Not Mad, Just Disappointed
To my understanding. the goal of Top Drives is to build a diverse garage to ultimately win events and collect more cars. The cycle basically is:
- Buy packs with in-game cash or gold; which can be built up over a period of time, or infused with real money.
- Then we use these acquired cars to win events and gain better rewards to progress in the game.
For those who haven't read it in the in-game forum, the Nissan GT-R NISMO finals will have a stipulation of no prize cars. That means no Project 8 and no XJ220 allowed.This disappoints me for two main reason.
- What's the incentive, point, or goal of this game if investing in our garage to win certain rewards becomes meaningless when it matters most?
- But more importantly, it's the mindset behind this stipulation. I understand banning a prize car(s) if they are ridiculous dominant within their manufacturer. Banning the 787B from a Mazda event makes sense. Banning the Pikes Peak XL-7 from a Suzuki event makes sense. But why ban prize cars, like the Epic XJ220, when there are three stronger Legendaries available to use in the event? For many, the XJ220 is probably the strongest Jaguar in their garage and now it's taken away. For others (myself included), they have invested what limited food was available into their strongest Epic Jaguar - the XJ220.
The idea that this evens the playing field sounds good, but it really won't. It will just further the gap between free to play members and the pay to win members (P2W), who will buy all of the upcoming Jag packs to win more Epics/Legendaires and acquire the food to upgrade them. Those who stand to earn the most from this are new players with big wallets who can spend away to build a great hand without worry of running into a car they cannot acquire. I fully understand new players (with money) are critical for a game to survive, but this also feels like a punishment to longer-term players.
