Hi, and thanks for the opportunity I hope you enjoy your day in the land of Forza.
To start I’ll place my list in order of what I personally believe to be the most important aspects, that of which reflect what causes issues and annoyance:
The leaderboards are full of impossible achievement figures, from jumps of over 2,000 meters in a peel to trialblazers being completed in under 7 seconds. The rivals boards littered with impossible times with cars that everyone knows can’t achieve such lap abilities.
We see the AH full of overpriced cars based on an unfair market produced by I’ll gotten gains, be it from ‘God Saves’ to ‘Car Cloaning’. Which leads me onto number 2.
- AH Pricing and Macros
Forza has the most unfair auction pricing in any game, based on the ranking of tunes and paints v grafting. Meaning that if you have a thousand ‘YouTube’ fans, your most likely going to gain the ability to auction cars at 20 million. ( I know there are others who’ve worked hard to gain this as well as YouTubers, so no disrespect meant). A totally unrealistic price even based on how rare a car is.
Each user should by default have the option to select the price they wish to sell their car, not being based on system which has zero input into the graft taken to gain such a rare item.
Further to this a system be put in place for each search of the AH to be verified by a human prior to search commencing, thus preventing the use of ‘Computer Code’ to snipe rare cars.
The AI is broken, they drive without rules and regulations gaining unfair advantage on cornering and checkpoint areas (completely skipping them). The aggressive behaviour welcomes ramming by their nature there by carrying this into teambased races. Lower the aggressive behaviour will lead to cleaner racing throughout the game.
- Microphone Usage
The game suffers badly from the lack of communication, a simple 4 button based text message system isn’t ideal when needing to communicate to a team member.
It’s so much easier to say ‘Hey mate calm the ramming’ than clicking on ‘Nice Driving’
A fix for this need done ASAP.
- Modify DLC Championships
At present the DLC’S have a fixed Championship for each season, unlike mainland they don’t change. There should be the same thought put into the DLC’S playability as that of the mainland, after all these were paid for by the community and now seem deserted in place of the Festival Playlist on mainland.
For those with DLC’S add additional Festival activities throughout these DLC’S.
- Listening to the Community
The community talks together, there are hundreds of ideas, comments and suggestions which go unnoticed or simply ignored, more times than not when a suggestion is made or asked in a live stream the reply is ‘no we can’t do that’, without a true explanation.
We’ve had some fantastic suggestions such as extending the mainland, open the Forth Road Bridge add in the Isle of Man etc, all to go unnoticed. Okay I understand licensing etc, but the like of opening up the bridge and using the land to include some off-road tracks, or even adding Knockhill which is in real-life just over it, would bring more of a ‘Real Britain’ feel to the game.
- Enough Mustangs (personal opinion sorry all)
I’m all for new cars but there has to be a limit on how many variations of the same model is available, I’m sure the community would appreciate if some of the wishlist cars were included but instead we see a difference variation of the same car as such added.
- More customisation
Forza is starting to fall behind in this aspect. We are limited to the same rims the same wing the same bumper that has been around for ages. A choice of manufacturers Wings, Breaks, even Tyres would be a great addition. The licencing must be already available when the usage of logos etc are available in paints, so why not include these customisations by asking these companies if they mind stamping their logo into the sidewall of a tyre. The possibility of doing this is available in game as their is already cars with manufacturers names on the tyre wall.
The servers feel old and tired, even this very site takes a decade to load. Time and time again people are booted from online racing due to servers not being able to keep up. It would be highly welcomed to see more investment being put into the online aspects.
Sorry for the long list but I’m hoping that it’s what your looking for and that it is of some use for you.
Enjoy your visit and keep us all posted on how it went.
