Reminders and Tips
For any case of the game not behaving as expected (such as an event not unlocking), do the following before posting:

  1. Double check to see if your car actually meets the event requirements both in car model and PI Class.
  2. Reboot your device to see if that clears the issue.
  3. Read the Known Issues list and other articles at Forza Support for possible explanation or solutions.
  4. If your issue is not listed or solved by anything on Forza Support, use the link at the bottom of any article to Submit a Ticket so the team can log and investigate your issue.

Specifically, the Known Issues list includes this item:

  • Festival Playlist - Series 2 - Autumn- Seasonal Championship - Carol of the bel airs, Drivin’ home for xmas, Getting Hyped may not complete after finishing the races (Date Added:12.10.21)

Oh damn, there are three ‘playground games’ events on this playlist. This is going to be horrible.
Other than that, just finished the trial and it was actually a lot of fun!

Thanks ManteoMax

I hope everyone got their Police Siren Horn last Season!

It would be better if the “Horizon Open” goal would unlock with the primary Playground Games one. As it is I just skip any challenge involving Playground Games outside of the main one. I’m only going to put myself through that torture once a week.

So the snowman outfit is the reward for 2 separate events?

Win 2 Cross Country Circuit Events is in the weekly twice?

They appear different, but same name.

I have a feeling that one reward is the suit and the other is the head. It’s just the complete lack of thought and care that bothers me. No one is proofreading or testing these things. No one competent anyway. Part of my job is finding other people’s mistakes so this gets to me on a deep level. It’s a personal grievance…

is bug free this season or?..

Known Issues List has one of the Championships as potentially not rewarding people when completed. Bel Air one.

Forzathon seemed ok used the same blueprint for the first and last stages…

Cross country circuit race single lap with only the RJ Anderson Pro Truck eligible 148 306 159 used with my S1 tune

It lists ALL of them…

This is getting ridiculous.

And another bug - in Guanajuato I don’t have christmas decoradtions anymore.

Edit - game restart helped

The hypercar championahip is s1 900, i tuned a Mclaren Senna to s2 998 Lat night for this :sweat_smile:

You and me both! I no longer have Christmas decor in Mulege!

I just happened to setup an Aventador Super Veloce to S1 900 for an accolade and it was really nice to drive so I think it will work well for this.

Horizon Solo and rewind helped me get those 15 snowmen quickly!

Just done the seasonal playgrounds as I always do 1st, but upon finishing, it ticked off not only that, but horizon tour and horizon open.:joy:

Five still on the volcano

The Open objective is deny 5 flags in flag rush though, you could have done it in the seasonal.
