All of that driver gear and not one piece of it makes the car faster. 95%-99% of the gear is not even visible during the race, which is the point of the game. IMO the driver gear should be Horizon only and not in this game at all. I am impressed that you had $16M to spend on crates though, want to throw some $$$ my way???
Why are there so many driver gear & mod crates?
There are 4 driver gear crates and 3 mod crates, but only 1 car crate with only car and a badge. I know loot crates aren’t a popular thing, but since they’re in FM7 please put more car crates. I’m sure people play Forza mainly for cars not badges, mods and driver gear.
Just doing some research so that those who value every CR don’t have to worry about their “investment”
I’m a painter that gets roughly 500,000 CR a day from downloads/uses/likes, and races frequently in the Hoppers. Combine that with the fact that I buy very few cars and it adds up quickly.
The way I see it, these particular crates are fine for 2 reasons:
The contents are purely cosmetic.
The contents cannot be bought with real-world currency.
Exclusive cars* would be a bad thing in my opinion, likewise anything exclusive that can make you “go faster”. Cosmetics are fine because they’re harmless (and ultimately pointless). The moment you put anything in these crates that can give a player a competitive advantage is the moment you have problems. The recent drama in the wider videogame community is a case in point.
*No crates released so far have had exclusive cars in them, every single car you can obtain from a crate can be obtained in other ways.
Im not crazy about the crates ,Im glad there is no competitive advantage gained through the use of them. But IMO the effort for driver gear and crates in general could have gone to other aspects of this game. $500K/day for paints is impressive, looks like I might have to whip up a few things, even though the paint doesnt make your car faster either. LOL
problem is there are over 90 cars that locked and can only be obtained by prize crates, specialty dealer, forzathon, etc…
if they would offer a less expensive loot crate to unlock the common locked cars, a mid grade one to unlock the uncommon and rare cars, and an expensive one to unlock the super rare and legendary ones. that would make sense.
Another pointless feature in a broken game they refuse to address. Driver gear is the dumbest addition to forza in quite a while, and they overlook tens of thousands of suggestions from people who bought the game and give us this. Thanks, turn 10.
Just got 1 base, 2 Expert, and 1 Master seemed to be a mix anyway and a couple of the Expert I would find more difficult than a couple in the Master. Mind you with the AI in this game the second I see Stay on track… I am toast. Probably works out better to get an Expert and a Master and most will be doable and will give you more Mods to work with. If you were getting the 50K crates before then nothing to fear with either of the higher level crates.
I got the 4 in 1 Driver Gear as well and didn’t get my Cheerleader outfit so I really am quite cranky.
