    I’ve enjoyed it because it’s something different, without a few tweaks it isn’t a viable structure for a prize car final though imo.

    Where is the fun for f2p player with not so many good cars in the garage @Hutch_Robin?

    I have nothing to do in this game at the moment. I can smurf in the daily, that’s it. I can’t even smurf in the other events. My hands are just too bad and there are no other bad hands. I feel like this game doesn’t even want me as long as I don’t buy packs to get better cars. I mean I bought packs just to be not so frustrated. Of course I had no luck, 500k for ceramic and the best was one! useless ultra rare. Most of the super rare useless duplicates. I tried to use my current garage and used some money for fusing. Didn’t help, still too weak. Now I’m broke and frustrated.

    I just don’t know what to do in this game. Is this the sense of the game? It’s just boring at the moment, sorry. 
    What is your garage specialised in? Where are you particularly strong?
    How well do you do in the weekly challenge?
    Do you have a competitive garage of Commons, Uncommons, Rares?
    How well did you do in the nine Qualifying events?
    I’m not specialized in anything. I try to have all the important cars like diesel, 80‘s, 90‘s, wet events and all the other restrictions. Same like some important small cars like RQ Blazer, Tahoe or Mercedes 600.
    I have 3 legendaries, 14 epics, 59 ultras, 147 super rare, 64 rare, 84 common and 50 uncommon. I don’t sell legendaries, epics, ultras and super rares. All the good cars I got since I started playing are still in my garage. I only use duplicates or really bad cars for fusing. 
    I feel strong in Porsche because 2 of my 3 legendaries are Porsche, my best epic is Porsche. It’s just unlucky that everyone has Porsche and my strongest hand turns into a weak one. So I had no Chance in the Demon? (I think it was the one with Porsche) Event even though I spent 3 epics to give my best Porsche an upgrade and I spent 15 ultras to max my epic Porsche. Also that’s not a problem, I have no problem to lose. That’s fine for me as long as I had some fun and I could win some races.

    The weekly challenge is sometimes a nice challenge and it’s fun. Also it can be too easy like this week. It changes and that’s okay.
    My rare‘s, commons and uncommon are not so bad. I know this because the rare events or events with low RQ are mostly my best events.

    The nine Q events were nice. It was a good mix of everything. I started to play the game way more hours per day again (right before this tournament I had some days with no motivation already)
    The Rover events just pushed me back to my no motivation mood. I tried my best, spent all my savings for ceramics and fusing but I had no chance. I couldn’t even be Top 30. there were too many people with way better hands. Smurfing didn’t work either.

    I think I’ll just keep on working on my garage, espacially ultras, epics and legendaries. Okay, it’s not really up to me but I‘ll try my luck.

    I think the dev work would be welcome to be able to run future elimination events without having the shoehorn it into the current structure.

    Pretty much this. Love the idea of these events and they have certainly been fun, but it has felt rough around the edges with the game being forced to work in ways it wasn't designed to do. This has made it confusing at times, and perhaps unfair to some. Not really the level of polish I expect from a game I've spent money on.

    It's clear that there are not enough low-tier prize cars to make running events in this way viable long-term, so I suggest not doing another until the tools are implemented to do it properly.

    2) Add some valueble prize for passing first round (Prize Smart and Rover are not)  maybe some good UR prize car or just Epic/Ur car, or CF.  So the eliminated players still feel rewarded for their efforts. 

    We don't know how many people are making it through the first and second elimination rounds so it's hard to say, but let's say 30% through the first and 10% (of all players) through the second.

    In a normal tri-series places 10-30 can expect two aluminiums from the first two events and places 50-150 get mostly a ceramic and super rare car from the final event.

    In this series people through the first round have between three and nine ceramics and a super rare Rover Coupe. Those who almost qualify get an additional ceramic and extra super rare rover coupe from winning one second round event.

    There'll also presumably be an event that is easier to win because they're not facing the toughest opponents, to give the best of those who fail to get through to round three another prize they wouldn't normally win.

    Most of my russian f2p players succeeded with Rover events.  Mostly they are abusing late join, but still a way to go if you aim only to get prize car. 

    Every time people lose in big event they start to complain about P2W. 
    your judgment is a bit simplistic, and in any case you can't say the opposite. In two years I spent about 60 euros I think, and for me it's already a huge figure. I have no idea how much the owners of certain garages have spent .... so .... p2w

    mine is not a lament, but a fact

    I think I have a good garage, the weekly challenge events almost always complete them, the daily events I use for smurf or I arrive in the first 20. For the other events lately I am improving my positions a lot, sometimes I have even arrived 1 or 2 !!! :D  I a total of 391 cars, 1 (S), 11 (A), 37 (B), 98 (C), 121 (D), 79 (E), 44 (F).
    My problem with the rover event is that of not having enough self-performers from the same factory (bmw, mercedes, honda, jag)

    attention, I am happy with the work of hutc, every week gives me for free 1 ceramic package and 1 steel package, then awards C or B car in the weekly tournament, and many other weekly events (I got 1 ceramic and 1 carbon fiber with the austin event). We also add this last tournament for the zr1 which was very exciting, I just wanted to try to go a little further, but it's still good.

    I like to suffer and not win easy ;)

    You are doing something wrong for f2p player. I am full f2p player since december 2017 (after porsche update) , and just reached 100 fully upgraded b class cars for some reference.

    sorry for the time indicated, I'm at day 331 and I started before the daily redemption was introduced, sorry again for the error,
    I don't remember well when I installed the game.
    But I agree with you, something I am wrong, I have 1 (S) alone and you can image which one it is (mclaren monaco).
    I have many B and C at the top as upgrades but also D and E. The ceramic packages I win in tournaments have never given me an S, but neither have the few CFs I opened.
    The money I earn I invest in reasoned upgrades of the machines I use and if I advance something I buy a ceramic.
    I have to think about strategy.

    - Smurf, smurf, smurf and save everything. 
    - Save money, gold and upgrade only cars if you think they will help you reach tier 1 or 2, otherwise dont bother.
    - Seems you have strong F, E, D garage so concentrate on those events for now and get those ceramics & gold.
    - Save gold & money & fuse material for upcoming updates and focus on new tags/manufacturers (everyone starts from 0 on them)
  • TimButTimBut Member Posts: 805 ✭✭✭✭✭
    If you enjoy using your C,D,E,F class cars in everyday events - then you can continue doing so. But if you want to get more S,A,B cars you should stop upgrading those.  Just smurf all events, anyway you can climb to tier1-2 after a one day smurf and get ceramic.  

    By doing so you can open 2-4 ceramics every day.  Or you can keep money and make some big opening.  
    You need to open about 133 ceramics to get 1 S car.  And as you can see - so you can actually get 1 S car every month. 

    Upgrade cars only if you see that they will garantee you tier1-2 in current event. There are enough time to fully upgrade any car (apart S)

    Or you can open 463 and get none :-)



    My luck (or lack of) has to go somewhere so maybe you can have it?

    Echoing everyone else, its all about the farming.
    Don't do what I did and max two Super Rare Honda when you don't really need to!
  • TimButTimBut Member Posts: 805 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I did the same with two rare Hondas.  But its okay, I will sell them aftere, guess its like a small investment.

    Yeah I know. Being on the brink of Tier One in Prize events does strange things to your normal thought processes!

    Superbird event now finishes noon Friday, so it could start 1-2pm on the 15th and run to the evening of the 17th.

    Looking at the stats of the Superbird vs. ZR2 Corvette, I'm really hoping the Superbird won't be a let-down.
    It's gotta be better at least in a test bowl... and it's medium ground clearance, so it can do drags AND cities

    @Hutch_Robin Thought the ZR1 Final would appear when the Superbird was in my garage but it's not the case...

    I haven't even got the prizing yet and the event is not showing that it is being finalised.

    Ahhh restarted and it was in my holding area.
    That's a bit poor planning imo.

    Branded as Road Trip.

    So, ACR, Demon, 2x Hellcat & Superbird? 
  • AntounAntoun Member Posts: 1,126 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @greddy and @lemmings99o I have restarted Top Drives twice and still not showing. I confirm that the Superbird is in my garage...
