    I thought it was impossible to have a player who had updated with a player who had not in the same bracket? @Grossbuckets
    It is. Updated players and non-updated players are not in the same bracket racing.
    But in the end they get mixed together  :(
    When everyone has updated?  Yes.
    Even if you dont.
    Happened to me last time - i finished second in my bracket ( did not update ).
    But in the result screen i was rated 4th.
    Conacted support and was told that there were another 2 guys with more points in front of me which i couldnt see in my bracket cause they did the update...
    So if you wanna make sure you get the tier 1 prize in the end, u better win with big numbers...
    The ghosts of players who updated stay in the non-updated bracket they were in. This is so people cannot try to get an advantage and avoid an update to finish higher up in a depleted, weaker pool.

    No it was not the old ghosts from players who updated, but all new names i didnt see before.
    Its like you get put in the updated bracket just after the event ends, and then rated together with them...

    @hillclimber

    okay would be nice if you can attack the people on the 5th, 6th place if you can beat them. Thx
    @Tom1507 sorry for the late reply, I didn't check. but I was anyway hitting always 6th. the guy in 5th is he also working on the lower end, not racing you?

    Updated and it was a huge mistake...I’m now in a super hard bracket that isn’t even close to filled yet.  Oh, and the glitches are everywhere....I really don’t understand this?  Don’t update

    I wish someone would have simply said “Don’t Update” if u have any position

    Hutch stated that the update would happen before the event ended, so surely it is only fair that everyone is on a level playing field so to speak (with the update applied) at the end of the event? Otherwise the game environment could be creating an unfair advantage outside of the actual racing aspect for some players.

    The way Hutch has it set up, it’s pure luck to get into a bracket that is full and ur one of the top players , able to dominate for once (happens once in a blue moon).  It’s not ok to change ur bracket entirely and throw u into a sea of sharks after days of creating a hand to dominate the current competition.  The update should be for all and the brackets remain the same.  Did your beloved Hutch mention all the glitches that accompany the update?

    It is pure luck which bracket you get into at the start of any event. We have all had those days where we first see the players above us and we realise we have to settle for a lesser prize or to go smurfing. Being reallocated to another bracket is exactly the same principle. None of us can choose who we are bracketed with at any point. 

    If the brackets were to stay the same. Then that would not be a level playing field between those who update and those who do not. The glitches hit those that updated this time, so if they were in the same bracket as those that did not update then chaos would ensue. 

    As for my 'beloved' Hutch. Read my post history and note my comments about them before you jump to conclusions.

    People join at different times for many reasons but mostly it is to build a decent hand up before entering.  Great veterans tend to join early because they already have a great hand and they play twice as many races....now I am in bracket with people who played from the first second as opposed to half way through.  There is a difference, I would never be in a bracket with the same players I am now...1000+pts and more coming every update.  I already got played with the last rounds time change and lost out...now this?  Whatever man, I can’t dwell on this or I’m gonna explode...good luck to u for sure and anyone else hanging on.

    don't say stuff like that. I can't play all days so i tend to enter with 24h to go, maybe less. 
    I was on my event with a good enough hand, going great in top 3-4 all controlled easy to finish top 5when like in the last hour of the event since guys updated their game... result,  they sent me to 17th place and the guys on top5 had the triple of my points...

    Tell me how's that fair? You think it's normal? Couldn't they wait for 2or 3more hours to send the update? Do they even care? 2or 3hous wouldn't make a biiig difference(always does but less) to events already going on but doing it 2or 3hous before the end of 1event with good prize like 5ceramic plus red car it's just stupid. Really I'd say they don't give a damn about it. 

    So, just lost my 5x ceramic cause of that. Nice. 
    Complaining is gonna get me nowhere, leaving the game is the same cause there's no way all the community gets together to make them open their eyes a bit so... 

    Pfff. Tired of this....

    If you send a request to support saying that your top 5 was affected by the bug you may get a 5x ceramic.

  • JayJay Posts: 2,528 ✭✭✭✭✭

    This was final result before finish.



    Sorry I see you were 4th. It was early haha. Maybe send a support ticket with this image.
