    Personally... I like shifting RQ limits . 
    Because eventually every one cottons on to what cars are vest at what in what field or category . 
    I have 5 orange elises !!!! 330 the 2x 303 2x 303 because it was so good at blue ... the chevette  HSR  another great rare ... now that they move it means my rare garage needs work on again and it's tinkering with the car collection that's the most fun. 
    Then when you just think it's sorted along comes the next changes . 

    Can't wait puegot and VW to blow it all wide open again

    Looks good but I am not sure I want to rebuild my Rare-Common-Uncommon garage again. 


    Where did you get that list? I can’t find it anywhere

    Why not just define a FIXED set of parameters that determines the RQ for every car in the game so we don't have to go through all this nonsense after every update?

    Unless Hutch is doing this on purpose to get us to keep spending endlessly upgrading cars after every update...

    And the Honda Beat is still 3 RQ.
    Very clever name for a car that beats almost everyone in its tier lol

    I think the issue people have with this patch is the diluting of the packs and the destruction of low end garages. At least that's what I saw on the emoji forum. Cars like the rq14 ranger will be in ceramic packs and the Mitsubishi outlander will be found in cf packs now which is rather annoying. I can see their point of view on it as we all spent a lot of time and resources collecting these top tier cars only to see them be useless at bottom tiers.

    On thw other hand, some of the changes are necessary like moving the elise. We can all agree that thing was OP. But yeah, bumping up 40 cars seems a bit excessive in my eyes. Hopefully the changes seem reasonable with the introduction of new cars
    It's kind of unfortunate the changes have been presented this way. It does allow easy planning, but it presents a misleading first impression of what balance changes are actually happening.

    It's likely that we're seeing a general reshuffle of RQ to move the performance level of each RQ downwards and most of these changes aren't individual balance changes, just the cars being moved to the correct performance group for the new levels. I'd expect around four times as many RQ changes in total, with equal numbers of cars from each of the three lower RQs in each rarity being pushed up by an RQ. 

    The developers seem to aim to have the same number of cars at each RQ, so this sort of shuffling will happen whenever cars are added unless they're scattered across all RQs equally.  It also means there'll be no 'dilution' of packs, you'll still have the same chance to draw an RQ18 as an RQ15 and so forth after the patch.

    I suspect the reason for having the same number of cars at each RQ is pack draw fairness. I think it's the only way to ensure that all cars in a rarity have an equal chance of being drawn and you're also equally likely to get an card from each of the four RQs.

    They didn’t have to change any RQ.  Just added new cars to the already established RQ.

    Hopefully we will get the update today!

    It would be great if Hutch gave us a release date (or at least an indication).
  • 43MK443MK4 Posts: 1,910 ✭✭✭✭✭
    They won't release it today for 2 reasons,
    1, It's friday the 13th so superstition says if they do then something would go wrong,
    2, They're english so they're still crying about losing to Croatia in the world cup :D:D
    1. They could give it a try today and who know maybe all bugs would mysteriously disappear.
    2. Hehe the World Cup final event still looks like it will start on Sunday where the final is being place without england.

    don't you like collecting super rares from the price board?  if you ask me hutch can take all the time they need.

    It was submitted for update to Apple and Android 3 days ago.  It's up to those companies to release it.

    See what?  The date submitted?  Hutch said earlier in the thread, I believe.

    My mistake.  I must be remembering a different patch thread.
