    Thumbs up hutch! Sounds great!

    I'm a little confused.

    7-Day Challenge (starting 01/31)
    - Round 18 awards Alfa Romeo SZ
    - Round 27 (final round) awards Renault Alpine A310 V6 Group 4/B

    The notes then say to beat the challenge, in order to win the Chrysler 300 SRT-8 and enter the Lunar Gold event.

    What challenge awards the Chrysler?

    Props for getting this up.

    Well done. Looking forward to the prospect of earning a prize car in a less stressful manner.

    Very good news. Challenge seems will be hard.

    Well spotted, that was an error - it's the SZ for Round 18 and the Chrysler 300 SRT-8 for Round 27.

    Thanks for the clarification, Tim!

    Loving this. 
    Although I I wish I could have the Renault over the 300. But hey, we can't all be winners

    6 hours for a ticket is long 😕

    Anyone feel they missed the opportunity to put in some fun (and non-verifiable) Rat-rod draggers as a prize for this challenge and event? Just a cool, quick car that isnt so uptight for this game.
  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 5,997 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Round 3 anyone?
  • _HighVoltage__HighVoltage_ Posts: 222 ✭✭✭✭
    I’m stuck on it too. Can’t beat that TVR with anything I have.

    Events like these make this game fun again. SZ is my fav Alfa and im happy that I will get a chance to get it. 

    Hopefully we will have similar events in the future on a regular basis. Maybe 4 times a year.

    Have to say this Lunar event is pretty well done. It reminds me a lot of the huge, month-long events you get in games like FIFA where you have to build up and fuse cards on your way towards getting the top prizes.

    The two day event that awards prize packs that may be useful for the week-long challenge is a very nice way to do it.

    A bit of a UI reskin to go with the event, and perhaps a bit more excitement built up around the whole thing and you'd almost be on the same level as FIFA. Good job with this one @Hutch_Robin

    Ticket refresh too long :/
    Game's relying on long-term events such as the Yellowbird and this... I wish ticket resets were 3hrs or maybe 2

    Id like to know the drop rates for the ("great value"😂😂) lunar new year cfs....
    And round 3 is impossible for me so i wont get all the prize cars and wont be able to join the events... really hutch?
  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 5,997 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Seems like not having a C2R2 is coming back to bite me on the ****
  • HeissRodHeissRod Posts: 5,864 ✭✭✭✭✭
    You can probably substitute a second C15 Lotus
  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 5,997 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Trying an incredibly unbalanced hand with the TVR Tasmin T350i on the 5th slot. Maxing it furiously.

    Dodge Laser XT
    Superlight
    TVR 1600M
    C15 Elise
    Tasmin T350i

    Fingers crossed.

    No prize cars?

    Superlight
    some low RQ good handler
    TVR
    C2-R2
    Denali XT (good point saver)

    Passed with dozens points, cause superlight smashes first race

    I wonder how the brackets will fill in the silver event on Sunday. Without buying tickets, you can't get the Alfa till Monday evening. And even then there's no room for mistakes, because each one will cost you 6 more hours.

    For those of you who do have a Superlight, here's what to do.
    The Laser loses about 140 points but it is all redeemed by the Superlight in Round 2.
    RQ's perfect as well ;)
  • TGPDTGPD Posts: 5,997 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Apparently, rounds 17-20 are all snow off-road tracks.

    @Hutch_Robin would really appreciate if you guys can reduce the difficulty for round 3. The Griffith is too hard to beat without a super light.

    Superlight or 3x C2R2
