    Just had my 1st try at round 23.  2* with 2x 2-11 (1 maxed). Sure I can play with the order to win this but if it comes down to me still missing a 340R, I'm gonna be pisssssssssssssssssssssssssssed!
    969 RQ15 Elise +50
    969 RQ16 Esprit +121
    969 RQ19 135 +50
    699 RQ26 2-11 +50
    333 RQ26 2-11 -50

    Meh. Without 2-11 seems no chance.
  • AndreasSimmerAndreasSimmer ✭✭✭✭✭ Member Posts: 815 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Is this a desperate attempt to push Lotus CFs?!
    I run Esprit Sport 350, Esprit 4, 2x340R, Elise Sport 135 and still miss by a lot.
    2-11 is one of my unicorns.

    I would love to see how many Players percentage wise are passing Round 23. And how many of those players dont have Exige or 2-eleven.
  • OzzmanOzzman ✭✭✭✭✭ Member Posts: 1,248 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Ok, so round 23 is doable with no Lotuses above UR. Here's my hand:
    969 Esprit S4: +113
    996 Carlton: +191
    699 340R: +50
    969 Elise 135: -50
    969 340R: -50
    Final score: 354-100
    Hope it helps someone.

    Wow you only have to have almost every UR Lotus, one even a second time an max all of them.

    Thanks fo your help but I won't be able to beat it with that requirements.

    I'm not saying it's easy, it just looked even more impossible at first look. :) The first two races are the key here. Nevertheless 5x Lotus criteria for the final rounds of a weekly challange seems a bit too hard.
  • RWareRWare ✭✭✭✭ Member Posts: 651 ✭✭✭✭
    Thanks @Ozzman, that helps me as my best Lotus for over 2 years has been the 340R
  • RawelRawel ✭✭✭✭✭ Member Posts: 808 ✭✭✭✭✭
    At least thanks to the meh final prize you're not missing much if you can't pass the challenge. I personaly like strict requirements, bring on 5x acura or whatever next week
  • JacoJaco ✭✭✭✭✭ Member Posts: 1,092 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Or farm it with this 


  • HeissRodHeissRod ✭✭✭✭✭ Member Posts: 4,863 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Double SR from the Ceramic.  Meh.
  • UncleGaryUncleGary ✭✭✭ Member Posts: 192 ✭✭✭

    Trying to pass this without spending any UR food. Does anyone know if a 969 or 699 Esprit S4 is better? I want to keep my options open with the Carlton until I get another one or something more important comes along.

    If we're talking about round 23 then you will lose the last two races for sure, so you need to maximize the points from the first two (you probably can't win the third one by more than 50 pts). For that I'd say you need a maxed Carlton and S4 as I did. I think the S4 is a 969 car, and the Carlton is a 996, but you can try it with a 966 Carlton and see if it's enough, and still keep your options.

    Lotus Esprit S4 is 699 car.

    I think it wouldnt be this hard if we got 1.5 bonus points for Lotus. I cant remember them all but are all final challenges without bonus points?

    Closest I can get is 11 points short. Have to put an upgrade into an epic using 3 B food to get a ceramic...urgh

    Round 25 smurf hand for anyone who gets there. Play in order: 

  • luckylumpiluckylumpi ✭✭✭ Member Posts: 54 ✭✭✭
    I wonder about the huge range between the challenges from week to week. Last week with 3x Volvos as requirement for the last rounds was very very easy (and you also get a volvo car point multiplier), now it is at least 5 upgraded SR Lotus or better and no Lotus multiplier. I think it would be still a struggle for a lot of people, if it were also only 3 or 4 Lotus requirement for the last rounds.
    But as it is only a ceramic that will drop me an RQ15 volvo probably, I do not invest anything here and farm at round 20.
  • SquadalaSquadala ✭✭✭ Member Posts: 145 ✭✭✭
    Drop the 5 lotus req, this is garbage, can't even win a ceramic pack any more.. Sigh.

    Hutch could trial an improved version of Weekly Challenges. Instead of only having 1 challenge and people who finished it have nothing to do, they should implement a game mode whereby there are many challenges and the aim is to finish as many as possible. Ticket buying should be banned. Prizes get increasingly better over a few sets of tournaments and there is a time limit (e.g. two weeks). I feel that this would compensate for the loss in prizeboard prizes.

    I had an idea but I'm not sure how it would go down with people:

    What about a challenge that is reasonably difficult at first and maybe rewards three ceramics, for the sake of this example. If you can fly through and complete it in minimum tickets, you get three ceramics. A few days before the end, it gets slightly easier for those who haven't been able to make it yet. It now rewards two ceramics on completion. Finally, on the last day when many people have already completed it, it gets easier again and now only rewards a single ceramic pack.

    I think this is a nice way of rewarding people for trying and rewarding garages of differing levels. I can't imagine a new player's struggles with this week's challenge if there are people who have played for nearly two years and can't finish it.
