Using more cars

I posted about this in another thread last night but the thread is dead, so I figured I would start a new discussion. 

In in the spirit of using more cars and being more creative with car choices, maybe we should only be able to put 1 of any car in our hand. 
Basically, you can own multiples but only use 1 at a time. I have seen several posts on here where people are like, oh, gonna use 3 such and such car. 
It might also help shorten the gap between the average player and the whales.

    Always said it should be a play option.  So cap on same car or some times a cap on same car tune so no 330 duplicate but ok for a 330 303 .
    Then other games hell yeah 5 of the same car ya mad rat

    A no duplicates restriction is something that is brought up fairly regularly. While I think it would help create variety (especially among the lower RQ events where specialist cars can really dominate), it also impedes variety. At the moment (and for the foreseeable future as far as I know), Hutch is only able to implement two restrictions for one event. 

    Take a rare event as an example. Say Hutch wants to run a UK restricted event. They could do Rare x5 and UK x5. However, if they implemented a No Duplicates filter, they’d have to remove the UK restriction if they wished to keep the event restricted to rare cars.

    I can see this being something that would come about if they ever were able to implement more than two restrictions, but as of now, I don’t see it happening.

    We had 90s event, mostly all 5 cars were different but all the same in top10.
    subaru wrx, Lancer 1, Lancer 4, Carlton and BMW m5.  Some had audi S4, some Sierra. 

    And it was same boring as playing vs 4x furai, but less costly. 

    I was about restricting duplicates before, but there was one important note about that - What to do with duplicates then?  I got some **** 27rq S by 3 duplicates and I would hate the fact that I can't even use them.

    Maybe we should have the option to trade our duplicates.

    It happened with me. I had the campaign 12C and I pulled another 12C from a ceramic which was my 2nd legendary.

    This is not a new discussion.
    I would recommend not to solve all issues with restrictions (i feel that this is just the easiest way). 
    Encourage diverse handy with a bonus. Lets say you use 5 different cars you get 5%more points for wins... Use 5 cars from different manufacturers you get a bonus of 10%

    This will give more strategies of using your cars. 
    Restrictions will just give you less options.

    I used to be so jealous of people with 2x 12C’s

    Agree. Don’t ban duplicates, just give bonus points for not using any. Hutch has done a good job with bonus points recently, and I think it really works.

    After the update having multiples of the same car is going to be essential I think, so it wouldn’t make much sense to ban duplicates in the one event hand.

    The bonus points for epics in the Porsche final we had recently was a great implementation in my opinion. It helped those players that maybe couldn’t afford to buy a ton of CFs to get a legendary - and therefore made the F2P players a bit more competitive. The only downside I could see was that it made offensive hands much stronger than defensive ones (if the offensive hand had a few epics). That could have eventually just turned into a ticket buying frenzy. All in all though, definitely a step in the right direction. 
    Bonus Points will always end in many can beat many and that results in a Gold War. as a consequence it's less attractive to enter early because that means this costly event lasts longer and has the potential to become more expensive. but we would like to go into the opposite direction. so I'm a bit more sceptical toward this topic. but I understand why hutch had to do it in the ZL1 1LE Finals (Porsche event) and for sure it was smart thinking.

    It happened to me and I sold it (I have a P1 and a 663 12C already). Bought plastics with it to get the first Austin. Not kidding. Don’t regret it one bit either. 

    I also didn’t do it just to please @bobdylan btw
