    Anyone else find it quite ironic that one of the big reasons they got rid of dailies were because people were using them just to farm, which wasn't in the "spirit of the game"......then Tim goes on how to tell everyone how to farm clubs?
    Lmao exactly what I've been thinking

    The majority of players (including RQ 150 players) didn't know how to farm the daily event. It's now more obvious to them how to make money.

    I fail to see how this in an issue. The Daily Event gave all players the option of how to compete. They can farm, race competitively, casually, late join, early join. Whichever suited them best.

    Lower RQ players with uncompetitive garages can at least pick events with suitable requirements, and be carried by the rest of their team mates (if they pick the right events).

    This is backfiring massively. Allow me to explain;

    During my time with the game, I have (through prize boards) been able to amass a great collection of C-E cars. Of course the Campaign sets people up with a lot of these, but when an expansion drops, the only way to try and get the newest 40 / 220 total uncommon cars is through prize boards and packs. Because the VAST majority of club events need you to have a diverse low-RQ garage, I find it essential that certain C-E ''meta'' cars are needed to stay even remotely competitive. Twizy, El Camino, Datsun, Dezir, R20, Swift, R21, Blazer, Elise', Escort Rally, BBR-T, 280 GE, XT, Stingray, Ram Dodge, Ram Lil' Red, Plymouth GTX, Seven 160, and many Mazda's are crucial at this stage of the game.

    It is what it is. Removing the chance of players ability to get these cars will turn people off from clubs. What's the point of entering a 50RQ 5 X FRA event if they have no Twizy. Your playerbase is not going to spam FRA Aluminiums in hope.... I feel like I am cheating going against these sorts of players with stacks of these meta cars in my garage.

    There was a period earlier where Legacy had a long thin series of territories along the border between Midnight and Full Throttle - then they got cut off, and could no longer enter those events to defend them. That's exactly how it's supposed to wor

    I believe you are referring to an image I posted. Out of (IIRC) 14 potential Legacy event, 5 were joinable and 9 were locked. How you can refer to this is ''working as intended'' absolutely astounds me.

    As it stands Tim, Clubs Territory is a battle of who can open an event the quickest which blocks the opposing team. That surely is not what your team designed, is it?

     Please don't defend this design choice by imagining a ''lone wolf'' character because it fits the persona of a player who has had the door slam shut on him 5 seconds after entering...

    Club events are certainly testing the diversity of my garage

    I agree, that the C-F parts of my garage are getting some attention from the club events.

    I emplore low-RQ events simply because it's not how-many-maxxed-Legends can I stack? However. In the 2 weeks I have played Clubs, I have not used a single Legendary car with the exception of Suzuki. My entire Epic Garage has been sunk to the use of Slick RSR, Rally cars, and Megane in FR races. The balance does need to shift towards the top end ever-so-slightly.

    We're going to continue to make improvements and additions unrelated to Club Events.

    Can we have the prize boards added to these Club Races?



     I've tried to be as civil, informative and positive as possible. The farming VS club earnings has already got enough noise so I've refrained from banging that drum.

    I've just typed a huge response and it's gone to moderation?

    This is a thing? I've not had this previously with my posts.

    Club events will never unite and socialize users.
    Invest your time to cooperate and chat for what kind of reward? 500 gold per week? Nah.. I choose last train farming. 
    500 gold daily might work. But still, building strategy here and cooperating other players takes too much time. If you thought that we will behave that way, you are sooooo wrong:)

    A club event that lasted for a week every month with great rewards at the end would be great! As ultimate said. That way we could have dailies and have a great weekly event with major prizes and the teritorry events that lasted for like half a day, so that we could at least put some strategy in them. Also there should be tickets involved, 1 ticket every 10 minutes or so. That would stop the 3/400 scores of the low trophy guys.

    @Hutch_Tim tell me... maybe i need a second job or a game? I can't pass 24h for day on TD and for farm what, few cash? You ignore this statement, we want a game not a second job.... answer about this!!!
    And second thing, we have clubs but where is the social thing?

    Club Farming is about shorter but more frequent sessions (which I appreciate doesn't work well for everyone).
    I think you're onto something here. The 'play 5 minutes every 2-3 hours' aka toilet/coffee/cigarette break play style just worked better for most of us I guess. Surely one cannot play the 16 evens you mentioned that way. Sacrificing effective farming on the altar of (maybe one day) more exciting gameplay is just not what the majority of the players hoped for.
    Also don't let the numbers you're monitoring mislead you. If you see people playing and farming the Clubs now, that doesn't necessarily mean that they're enjoying it and that it won't ruin there jobs/marriages/family life. :)
    If I go for 16 toilet breaks in a 12hr shift they’ll send me for a prostate examination for sure. 😯
    Some would call that win-win

    1. I guess they need the downtime to make changes (hopefully)
    2. Legacy Rule

    Yeah what IS with the 240 mins shutdown? I have some free time so I decide to play a bit (A BIT!) of that dreaded Clubs mode just to make maybe a grand or two... and then I'm basically told I can't play this so-called new and fantastic mode because... Reasons.

    Hilarious.

    Oh man I feel bad for Hutch staff. I'm not taking sides at all, but it must feel terrible being in their position right now
