My only problem at the moment is that I’m rather skeptical when people say that you will ultimately end up a “faster driver” after mastering the whole brake line off thing.
Does anyone else feel this way? If so, why?
I know other people posted this in this thread but since I’ve been using the braking line (since the start of Forza 7 up until 4 days ago) I should’ve been more clear in explaining that I didn’t use the braking line as the “optimal line”. Because, well, it obviously isn’t. Not only have I not used it as the optimal line, but as we all know it is completely wrong in some cases.
^I generally used it as a marker / suggestion of when I should brake, and then I followed what I myself thought to be a more precise line.
I’m improving rather quickly with the braking line off after these last several days so don’t get me wrong, but…
The level of “skill” I was at before this was pretty decent. Now, “pretty decent” I understand is rather vague. So to be more precise: I currently hold top 1-3% for most of the Rivals events I’ve completed (about 30 of them), and I’ve managed this always in A class with a non-optimal car (The Ferrari 360 CS), which I believe I hold the records for the fastest time in a 360 CS for 9/10 of those events (for what that’s worth, which isn’t much considering there are so many cars to choose from)… If I play in a multiplayer lobby, unless I get smashed into in the first corner and wipe out completely, it’s an extreme rarity that I’m not in at least the top 3, if not 1st (which also, I know doesn’t mean very much considering the other players in regular hoppers aren’t very good).
BUT, this is all with the braking line ON so…
Without blabbering on more, It’s my hope that eventually I will be able to make these times (and improve them) regardless of what car I’m driving or what class I’m in.
So…if I may ask an additional question to the people in this thread (or maybe those that haven’t posted yet)…Have any of you gotten to the point where you’ve had the braking line off, but if you were to turn your braking line on, see NO improvement whatsoever? (Or even a worsening in lap times)
And god please say yes lol (without lying of course haha), because having the braking line on for me makes the game seem so corny to me; less immersive. Like…let’s say I show my races to someone that knows nothing about the game…for them to see the braking line on would look to them like I have a “crutch” setting on and isn’t nearly as impressive as with it off.
So yeah anyway, without going on further and turning this into a TL;DR, let me know what you guys think.
