This new problem happened to me twice today…I go to start the Live event like normal, but when I got there, the countdown timer said 28 minutes (we know it never has any more than 10 minutes on it), even though according to my watch it should have had about 5 minutes left. When it was (also according to my watch) time for the Live event to start, every other car but mine disappeared, and the round didn’t actually start for me (no announcement, FL blimp and start zone remained). About 30 seconds later, I see a bunch of cars appear on the map in the correct place for round 1, but when I go there I can’t see them in the game. All of this time, the Live event start zone hasn’t moved, and the timer is still counting down.
The second time, I got to the start zone with what should have been 8 minutes to go, but the countdown timer said 18 minutes. As always, other cars came to the start zone and we all waited. When my watch said it was at the hour (countdown timer said 10 minutes left), just like before all of the other cars waiting disappeared from view, only to reappear about 30 seconds later, but also like before, only on the map. I drove over and not one of them were visible in the game, but only on the map. I drive back to the start zone to see what happened when the timer ran down. At 7 seconds, the usual announcement came on, but when the timer hit zero, nothing happened, but the blimp and start zone stayed where they were. Keep in mind this all happened about 10 minutes AFTER the hour.
So, basically, it looked like all of the other cars were on the correct countdown timer and were able to start the Live event with no problems, but it left me behind with a buggered match timer that didn’t even start the round.
