I wouldn’t necessarily say its just there being too many events at once and with a reduced timer compared to FH4, which I’m not quite sure I agree with by the way, or is this being more of a technical problem.
I have tried to complete, according to the game itself as well, over 20, possibly even 30 now, Arcades, managing only a single lvl 3 three completion out of all of them (maybe two, but I’m not sure).
My wife and myself have had a multitude of technical issues with them. These include;
People being present in the circle, but phasing in and out, never really knowing how many, if any, are actually present, and participating.
Even us two, being in the same convoy are not showing to each other whilst doing the exact same event, me on PC and wife on Series S. This convoy issue persist otherwise as well mind, not just in this particular event.
The other, and more annoying problem is that I can see other people doing the same event, let’s say a speed zone. I have had a situation where I’ve seen at least 3-4 others doing it, but the only one whose score is tallied is mine. The other people there do not contribute points towards my point total. I even had a random person joining my convoy, and even though they were in my convoy, doing the exact same activity, only my points were added to the point total on my screen.
This has happened multiple times as well. Drift, speed, mini-games etc, all of them have had the same issue of not counting everyone’s points together, at least for me.
Trying to solo these events is a total pain, I can just about manage lvl 1 completion fairly often, but that’s where that ends, and its frustrating since you need one full completion for the seasonal.
Its a shame that most of the multiplayer options in FH5 seem, at least currently, to be screwed, on way or another. The Eliminator is not working properly, Playground games the same, Arcade the same.
The single player portion if you will and the actual game itself is superb, I think its a step up from FH4 in pretty every possible way, but these technical issues are really bad in multiplayer-oriented stuff.
