Dear Developers,

Ever since the release of Forza Motorsport 5, me and the rest of the community have been wondering…where are Overall Leaderboards and Car Clubs?! In my opinion and the opinion of many others Clubs and Overall LB’s are a massive part of what Forza is and should be! They really have to be reintroduced into the game and since they are massively requested it seems almost stupid that they have not been added. Forza is MY game(like many others) and being so we would like it to have the features and feeling that we all love. This is part of a movement to see the game improved for the real racers of the community, the ones who go for fast lap times and enjoy bumper to bumper close knit racing. As this is the case, we are requesting a massive number of changes - yes massive- to tracks and online play. There are far too many corner cuts on tracks such as Yas Marina and Spa where players can gain massive time by leaving the track limits. Also we believe that the Storefront should be reintroduced. The reason for this is because the new system is much more difficult to find and share tuning setups. As you know the SF allows players to get everything they need from a particular tuner/painter etc and it makes being a tuner or painter etc that much more satisfying! Online lobbies should be returned to the way they were in Forza 4, with only full tracks and a rotation as we are constantly getting ovals, square tracks and small tracks over and over. We want to race full tracks, and lots of them. Other improvements should include ghosting lapped cars, ghosted starts and penalties for clear cut wrecks!
Now, on to the cars… I know that T10 are trying to meet the demands of the mass community with cars like the Chryslus rocket etc, but us as the top racers want to get proper race cars, with good PI leveling to have competitiveness not only in online lobbies but on the leaderboards. Personally, I am an R class driver at heart, and seeing two cars from the 60’s dominate the leaderboards is rather unpleasing considering the speed and power of the cars of today. We would love to see more GT cars mostly, with the likes of the E46 M3 GTR, & McLaren F1 GT. Other cars from the glory days of Forza 4 would also be welcome - Joss, Mosler etc. We feel it is acceptable to request this considering the lack of decent cars within the most recent car packs. For example the Mclaren P1 GTR fully upgraded and tuned in P class is SLOWER than the McLaren M8B in R class.
I know we are asking for a lot here, but this is our game and we want change!

Peace out - JSR LeeCampbell

Thanks so much for supporting this game and continuing to develop and add new content to suit a wide variety of players.

BUT…you are seriously alienating 1 group of racers. I speak for everyone that puts alot of effort, time and money into this game. The racers that will still be playing this long after turn 10 stop supporting the game.

This group of racers crave the forza 4 experience, they want to relive the experience of close competitive racing.

Turn 10 you don’t need the wider audience you need us the serious racers, the loyal racers.

Give us back forza 4 with all the great new features and graphics that come with forza 6.

Stop the cutting - sticking tarmac/grass
Overall leaderboards
Teams
Storefront

Just to name a few I don’t need to spell this out just listen to us and let us know you still want us playing your games

Well said Lee.

To be clear I agree with every point made - we are veteran Forza players that have poured so much time and effort into this franchise. We care massively and just want this franchise to be as successful as possible without losing it’s soul.

Maybe Dan G will do another state of the Forza nation?

Dear Developers,
I am part of a mass movement in the forza community…
Whilst I can see the need to accommodate the vast amount of players that enjoy FM6, I amongst Many others would like improvements to be made,

.Storefront like Forza 4
.Club Garage like Forza 4
.Club Leaderboards like Forza
.Track Limits on Yas Spa and Indi to name a few
.Ghosting of lapped Cars is a must for 24 player Lobby’s.

I Play Rivals and Multilayer Daily and for serious Racers we feel that we Hardcore players are left out, J S R are a Top team on Forza and like Many other Teams we wish for improved experience in forza 6, I do not hate this game, Forza 4 combined with Forza 6 will appeal to everyone alot more. I do love leagues and cycled production lobbies and they are a great addition but you fannys I mean at least Dick Turpin wore a mask!!!

Hey everyone! I’m posting this because even though the developers have made a great game with absolutely brilliant graphics and good content, there are major things missing in my opinion which some people don’t realise. There are 2 features in particular which are OVERALL LEADERBOARDS and CAR CLUBS with the CLUB GARAGE and CLUB LEADERBOARDS. For your information, this is NOT a WISHLIST, it is about expressing the opinion that many people share, as you shall see at the moment as I am part of a big community of players who are fed up of this current situation. Also, the CORNER CUTTING in the game is absolutely appalling and more extreme measures should be taken to prevent this like sticky grass in the older games and sticky tarmac to severely slow down the corner cutters. From the list below, you will see all the things that should be added to Forza Motorsport 6 to make it a better game:

GT Car Expansion Pack (roughly 24 cars like GT1’s, GTLM and GT3’s with a good track)
Being able to add the DTM and Super GT cars to the franchise
Less cost for the DLC’s for a prime example, the NASCAR expansion (3 manufacturers and track for £16)
Better cars for the DLC
Fixing the PI system for the game as it is way too inaccurate
Bring back the STOREFRONT
Add TAG for NORMAL TRACKS, CAT and MOUSE, CAR SOCCER
Adding the ability to GIFT cars, tunes and paint jobs
Fix the vibration for the controllers

These are the major things that I recommend should be added to the game as the community that I am part of really want these features in the game as we feel that the game is getting worse if this path is to continue. You should also know that I am part of a MASS MOVEMENT that is happening today and our numbers are great so hopefully our voices will be heard and will make adjustments to this game or for some features, the next game. Another thing is that Forza 4 will be great when it is finally released for backwards compatibility as Forza 4 is exactly what we want; all the features, cars and tracks, all of this should be put in Forza 6 and make Forza great again!! As I have already said, this game is very good but these features should be added to it and for those who disagree with our community, we will not care as you will already have what you want in the game but this is what WE want, our opinion matters!!

Thanks for your time

AGREED. I agree with your whole post man. Also, just like you said, this isn’t a wishlist. IMO, some of the things such as the club and club features, auction house, and more are all things that have been implemented already but were taken away for some odd reason.

When you are wishing for things to be added to the game in a post, whether they was in previous versions or not, then you are making your post a wishlist. Which, as the mods keep pointing out, belong in the appropriate sticky threads on the main FM6 discussion page.

Hello, first off I want to say that while Forza 6 is a great game, there are certain elements that are missing from this game that I wish to see included at some point, for us fast and dedicated racers, we would love to see clubs returning in the near future, (My team is one of the three best teams in the world at P Class), and for us we would enjoy seeing car clubs return! also other features I would like to see return are;
Overall Leaderboards
Auction House
Storefront
& Live TV like on Forza Motorsport 2
I would also like to give a shoutout for all my fellow P Class racers and say; We highly request you add the Sauber C9 to the game, Turn 10 stated that licensing is the only issue of bringing cars to a game, & the Sauber featured in FM4, hope you guys at Turn 10 consider my suggestions, thanks for your time everyone!

I share the views mentioned so far about the game. Turn 10 needs to focus on what the game actually needs, not just carry on adding irrelevant stuff. Also why are Turn 10 collaborating with other games, to give us some pointless fallout car for example?

“Wish List threads are not vending machines; a variety of factors affect which assets and features will be added to the game (licensing, legal, financial, logistical, and even user and designer ideas that may directly conflict with each other’s respective visions and priorities).”

Sounds like excuses, you need to meet the customers demands as they pay for the game and pay your wages.

Theres lots of fantasy tracks that got taken out for no reason, no licensing is required. Financial? lol yeh right…The total cost of Ultimate Forza edition + all the packs so far easy go in the 100 pounds mark. Turn 10 makes enough.

I though a product is supposed to improve over time, not take one step forward and then one step back, as Forza have been doing since Forza 4.

Gifting. If I make a team paintjob for a car or a team logo just for my team and my team only I don’t want to share it to where everyone can download and have it. The whole point of having a team paint and logo is exclusive to the team only not the whole world.

Also if this related to tunes

Hi, I’m a long time forza player(10 yrs ish) and I’ve found the last two games feel rather un finished. The community features seem to have disappeared i.e. Storefronts and clubs and overall leaderboards for rivals. It would be great if you could bring back these features.
Secondly: the bugs that have arisen after the May content update have made the game feel awful to drive. The main issue being the lack of feedback through the controller, I do realize this has been brought up in previous posts but an update on the situation would be nice.
Thirdly: lack of tracks from previous games i.e. Mugello, Suzuka, motegi, maple valley, sunset, fujimi ect. It would be great to have any of these tracks back. A response to any of our dear devs threads would be much appreciated. (Especially in terms of the current bugs and what your currently doing to fix them)
Thankyou.

Yo, just wanted to add my bit I’m still kinda happy with the game but that’s not because it’s good it’s because I’ve got nothing much else i like to play. The track cutting online is the biggest problem for me, mainly Yas and spa when I’m trying to stick on the racing line and people cut and take me out its frustrating. Ghosted lap cars would also improve the online racing to stop the wreckers waiting and ruining the actual racers experience.

Hello Turn10 Im not happy

We NEED Overall Leaderboards back, seriously. This alone was the reason to compete and get better at the game. This helped the entire community figure out where they stand, and who they should race with to get better, but thats nearly all gone now.

-We NEED Clubs back! Dont you see 99% of the names racing on this game? WE STILL HAVE CLUB NAMES WITHOUT AN ACTUAL CLUB IN-GAME! This was also another reason to race, and its a dying breed because you’ve decided to get rid of this for some reason.

This is Money Making

-Vibrations are gone now, please fix that

-Physics are broken now? Yeah my Jag in P class cant even run half a second close to what we have been running randomly after this expansion, and Id love to see why but oh wait? THE GHOSTS DON’T WORK! On top of all of this we get a nice pit stop interface, in which 90% of the population will hardly use, unless their shoved into it by the newly toxic-enabled community that was build around a once available simulation racing game, that has now turned into an arcade simulator.

  • FIX TRACKS/CUTTING PROBLEMS ON LEADERBOARDS - I mean everybody has seen this video by now, please take this seriously: Forza 6│Please Turn 10 I'm Begging You To Fix This! - YouTube You’ve even gotten rid of some of the best tracks, ever! Tracks like Fujimi, Camino, Suzuka, Maple, Motegi, Mugello, basically the entire Forza 4 lineup.

I think its safe to say that if Forza was able to implement overall leaderboards and clubs on an inferior console, then an ask like this shouldnt be too much. Please bring these back. If these were brought back thatd make my day

Hello, this is the leader of this forza movement, you guys haven’t heard from me since i’ve been banned for expressing my opinion, which will probably happen again, because you guys enjoy banning the ones who speak their mind, even without profanity. So I literally thought your series could NOT get any worse after Forza 6 (Don’t even get me started on 5, which was the worst by far), but here we are with this new update! Yeah, the Nascar thing, cool! Great! I can understand that. But you take away vibrations, the upper class cars don’t drive like they used to, becoming MUCH slower than usual. Not sure if you guys thought about this, but Hey! People still do leaderboards even though you’ve gotten rid of most of the leaderboards since Forza 4! Yeah, shocking right? So many racers are so enraged from these last two games I couldn’t tell you guys, but you continue to listen to these little kids, making this the ultimate waste of time arcade simulator.

I have been around since Forza 2, do you know how long I have been faithful? Ever since the release of forza 5, I told all of my friends: “Don’t worry, its Turn 10! They’ll bounce back! Forza 4 was a great game!”. I’m sorry to say, but me, and tons of racers are losing faith in you guys, sort of like Call of Duty has 2 million dislikes on their new game. You know what those gamers wanted? The ones that disliked the video? They want to bring back the past where the series was actually worth playing.

This may sound demanding, but I guerentee that this would bring profit back into the game anyway, I mean take a look at any track in P class now, some literally have only 4,000 entries. Want to know why thats sad? Because on Forza 4, most tracks, even Test Track Layout-E had more than 500,000 entries.

  • We NEED Overall Leaderboards back, seriously. This alone was the reason to compete and get better at the game. This helped the entire community figure out where they stand, and who they should race with to get better, but thats nearly all gone now. Seriously though, this made me play for several years in return. (On forza 5 I took every #1 in X class for 6 months, and quit because it was seriously that boring, and 6 days for forza 6, but im back now).

There are so many more problems going on with this game, and I hope the rest of the community touches down on this tonight.

~Thank you everybody, and if we aren’t heard, i’m sure gamesinformer would here us through :wink:

Edit: Some food for thought Turn10: So now MLG is getting involved on Forza Motorsports right? Nothings wrong with that, that’s great. Also, I hear that you fly the top 2 players with the fastest leaderboard time in a certain community leaderboard out to London for free to compete for money, right? Oh, well what can be wrong with this “Bulletproof idea”. You could be picking tracks that can be cut, and leaderboard ghosts can still be taken off, there are several ways. So you could be flying a cheater out to London, wasting your money that could have gone to someone worth your time.

Also, I have said this to many racing friends, I would literally pay $150 for a Remade version of Forza 4, or atleast a backwards compatible version of the game. I literally put more hours into Forza Motorsports 4, than it probably took to make the game honestly, its sad ill admit, but you’ve made quite the game back then.
