    Could have at least of offered an equal RQ to the metro as a prize for the owners. 
    They are giving us a lot of cash along the way. Stop being so grumpy.  B)

    I’d make more farming the final + prize cash. 
    Basically you’re getting slightly worse than a tier 2 finish in the final.

    What's the prize for Metro owners?
  • LittleEnosBurdetteLittleEnosBurdette Posts: 3,128 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Raptor

    Because of the lack of renown?

    I was trying to figure out how it was worse than a T2 finish.  Up to round 9 and the rewards are somewhere around $50k cash and 400G so far. 

    Edit: Plus another 200G, 2 CFs, and the Raptor at the end.  Better than T2, but the guaranteed prize is certainly weaker than the T1 prize.

    Agreed, seeing now there is 2 CF’s it’s better than tier 2. 
    The prize car ( although quite decent ) is a poor choice, 90% of players with a metro will have a raptor so basically giving us a duplicate. Would have been nice to give out one of the high RQ GE epics.

    For both of us.  Seems someone is salty about the owner’s event prizes.

    Anyways, a high end GE off-roader would have been nice.  I can’t complain about the Raptor, as this will finally get me a useful second one.  My first took over 1.5 years playing to arrive. (assuming I make it to the end)

    They are welcome to my 2 RQ19 pulls.

    FYI for round 22

  • goshkogoshko Posts: 134 ✭✭✭
    Can anyone post the rounds from 16 onwards? I have a very bad dodge hand and need to figure out if it’s any point to upgrading at all.

    Here’s 19 and they get progressively more difficult from there

    Round 23.
    It took me 3 attempts to get past 22 and that was only done when I sacrificed a loss for two big wins.

    Oh, thanks. I guess I’m out. Too much investment for not that big a reward

    Anyone know how to beat the Nissan 390?

    Don't try to beat it. Several of the B Mazda's only lose 60-70 pts versus it. Make up the lost points by putting a beast on the drag race.

    I've put a Porsche 962C on the drag but still not enough.  :/

    Now it's also because I lose another race so I have -120 points to catch up.

    I'm currently upgrading a Honda Accord Type R (RQ16), hopefully it will help...

    So far my other 4 Japanese 90's are:
    - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV (RQ22) - 9.6.9
    - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV (RQ22) - 3.3.3
    - Mazda RX-7 (RQ18) - 9.6.9
    - Mazda MX-5 BBR (RQ14) - 9.6.9 - so this is the other one losing, but best I can put instead is Mazda Cosmo (RQ20) 9.6.9. Hopefully the Accord will help, together with a RQ27 for the drag then.

    Yea, for transparency, I had to win all other races and I used Moby Dick on the drag for +248
  • Yama_sanYama_san Posts: 333 ✭✭✭
    Ok I finally managed with hand in this order if I well remember:

    - Mazda RX-7 (RQ18): -70
    - Honda Accord Type R (RQ16): +50
    - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo (RQ22): +50
    - Porsche 962C (RQ29): + a lot
    - Mazda MX-5 BBR (RQ14): +50

    Very tough round, even a Ford GT (RQ27) wasn't enough to beat the Nissan or to get enough points on the drag.
    On the other hand, the round just after was ridiculously easy...

    Still 2 rounds left for me, waiting for tickets.
