Can we get some snow, sand or rain on the Nurburgring?

    Man it sure feels like Hutch is trolling. They release PL9 with new manufacturers and then use an old one for the big events. So much for burning saved gold on GR packs and then burning saved cash to upgrade some decent GR cars.

    Weren't AD and FR used for major events right after? Felt like the playing field was slightly more balanced when even the whales couldn't have a huge head start to events.

    I think its totally fine policy from Hutch to use a BMW for an event like this, right after a patch release.

    Many players havent really build up a GR garage yet and could definitely use some more time to do so.

    So instead of GR final right after patch release we have a BMW final where I believe old and new BMWs will be allowed, making it possible for everyone to join.

    2 weeks later I will be expecting a full GR final. Exactly like it was done with FR patch where we had Cadillac final followed by full FR final.

    I see the logic in that, true. Just that it also means that the big whales will have that much more time to build an indomitable hand too, skewing the playing field much more in their favour.

    Well, if that is what the majority wants then.

    The BMW final is a clever move. You cannot really complain about it, because BMW has been in the game for ages, but also, with PL9 we got some legendary BMWs, that will probably be essential for T1. Packs will be sold, pockets will be stuffed. Everyone is happy, except for F2Ps. :)

    it's not impossible if you plan for it, I barely ever spend any cash on this game since the prices tripled and I still managed T1 in both FR finals. It was a matter of setting cash and gold aside before the update and starting that again after the final.

    Now of course I'm broke and can't replenish the cash nearly as quickly and my luck was significantly worse too.

    Same here.  My FR packs (and AD packs for that matter) used up all my luck for a while I think.  GdR pulls have been pretty shocking so far, although I had about twice as much cash saved for FR & AD releases so I can't complain too much.

    Is this bracket open?
  • AJTheCaveManAJTheCaveMan Member Posts: 1,366 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I just joined a pretty new US bracket about 90 mins ago that had 75 users. Just checked and it's at 80 now, with #1 @12-0 w 202 pts, #3 @12-9 w 98 pts. Pretty good looking bracket if anyone is looking to join mid-event.

    I'm just in 80th farming scraps to upgrade my diesels.
