    Like we did with PL8?
    Yes, for the cars incoming to the game I mean.

    There were French Cards appearing on your show, as well as fan youtube channels also.

    @Hutch_Tim can we get some discounts on German packs? At least a couple of them?

    C'mon Canada. Let's get this update going.

    This is what the new prize board looks like. Also instead of getting $500, it is reduced to $250.

    Excited to see the new tier rewards for events
  • UltimateUltimate Member Posts: 774 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Have they changed the finishing rewards? They seem the same to me

    Hutch said in a thread end-of-event results are due to get bumped up over the next few days
  • bertmcfishbertmcfish Member Posts: 138 ✭✭✭
    There had better be a really significant bump in event rewards as it’s impossible to earn decent cash now. It had just improved - the club events brought some extra income and i finally felt that I was making some progress upgrading my garage, but they had to meddle and spoil it. Again!

    we wouldn't like you to have fun now, would we?

    Curent reduction of prize boards means easily 40.000 IG cash less per day (without final prizes being adjusted) with 3 events running.

    They are killing the game slowly but obviously...

    You’re supposed to pay with real money, not be able to upgrade your garage by playing the game, pretty obvious what they are trying to do.
    Problem is, just like IRL, taking something away from people when they have had it for years never really goes down well...

    I mentioned this in a different thread but they're worried about cash inflation when they really should be worried about gold inflation. I get you have to make money but 15x cfs for every single finals event? I literally see people with 1K trophies with two megane trophies. Like c'mon now. It literally reduces the value of epics when almost anyone who's willing to spend a lot of money can easily get the cars 
  • TD01055TD01055 Member Posts: 2,187 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Can anyone confirm what happens with event pools this time around? I’m top of my ford event and haven’t updated yet...
  • greddygreddy Member Posts: 1,384 ✭✭✭✭✭
    You end up in same bracket with guys who updated game.

    Someone on the igf mentiones this thoughts.... Usual mobile game rarely last this long. And if a game is over its lifecycle it seems common to push out f2p, squeeze the p2w for how long it works. Maybe this is what we are witnessing?
    They are not trying to give f2p or low spending players the chance to catch up anymore, caused by their own inflation.

    Sounds feasible, but they have just licensed 2 new manufacturers and added hundreds of new cars and a new track (apparently).

    Perhaps Hutch_Robin is pushing on with his dream, but secretly Hutch_Tim has already started a leaving collection... 
  • Parimal_2000Parimal_2000 Member Posts: 801 ✭✭✭✭
    I don't think they are interested in f2p players anymore. Even if they are, these updates tell the opposite.
  • bertmcfishbertmcfish Member Posts: 138 ✭✭✭
    Well I've  decimated my garage to buy German premiums in an effort to try and keep up. Picked up total **** from around 20 packs I guess. No way of rebuilding as no cash income now. This might be the tipping point...
  • 43MK443MK4 Member Posts: 1,703 ✭✭✭✭✭
    After last spyder final my f2p IG cash and gold savings hit bottom. Went all in on that one.
    I’m glad to see a new update with so many new cars, but have to admit that my expectations for all GR events have really hit bottom as I have no chance in building up a GR competitive garage with no savings and reduced board prizes (40k less per day).

    I think we will see a clear demarcation between f2p and p2w in GR events. All f2p players are in the same boat: burned all savings and no more cash income. Even if I bought packs with gold, I would not be able to upgrade the cars. P2W are just going to smash through GR. Another reason for me not to invest in my GR garage, I know as f2p I will be dead in the water even if I try.

    Yeh I presume the slow fill rate has to do with those not updating but whether it’s been split between 2 brackets or what I’m not sure, certainly people in my new one that weren’t in the pre-update one. 🤷🏻‍♂️
