IR Slick RQ rating

@Hutch_Robin I’ve just read on a discord that you frequent that you decided not to reduce the RQ for slick IR cars. Care to comment? This is a pretty big inconsistency (noticed by players here) that you have declined to comment on yourself.

    We did have a discussion on Slicks & RQ. After that discussion, no changes were made for any existing Slicks cars in our last rebalance, but a couple of Super Specialists moved (the DeZir and the Miray). In PL10, some new cars were less aggressively costed, in order to reduce occurrences like those above cars that dominated a bit too much. I'm trying to be more cautious not just for Slick cars, but any Super Specialists that can get overlooked by the ranking system.

    But that leaves a big inconsistency between slicks pre and post PL10 though surely? Is there any plan to bump RQ of old slicks?

    No, some Slicks cars and Super Specialists were rated less aggressively in pre-PL10 updates, too. I'm just trying to keep a closer eye on things, in response to community feedback. The idea is to make changes to RQ before they come out, rather than after, which can be disruptive. I'm not announcing a wholesale bump of RQ for an entire series of cars though - my whole approach is to try and look out for the cars that are the most likely to be overpowered at their algorithmic given RQ value.

    Thanks for the feedback. While I do appreciate what you are trying to do going forward it does leave cars like the RSR waaaay out of place. Also some notification that the slick IR cars are rated the same as their performance counterparts would have been appreciated - it was even debated here, you could have settled it straight away
