I lol'd when I saw the Trial had 4 races. Did you just say ENGAGEMENT???

The Clio is incredible. Shame you need online to get it.

Inb4 kids spamming the auctions channel on Discord asking to buy one of these and a random person telling them to "JUST PLAY THE GAME!!!"

Earlier today I did the Trial with some of my Twitter followers, and I used the 2016 695 Biposto. On the final race, something strange happened - even though the Drivatars got more points than us, our team somehow won that race, and we now have the 2007 Clio RS 197 in our garages.

The clip of this happening is on this tweet from one of my followers who helped me, here’s the link to that tweet if you want to look at it: https://twitter.com/mata...1215311549780430848?s=21

"I'm Baaaaaa-ack! Couthin Kyle!"

Just want to say Thanks for Putting the Rossion Q1 into the Forzathon Shop, its about *Time* some of the Multiplayer Cars became available offline!

If You could just Put all of the Multiplayer Locked Cars into the Forzathon Shop like that into the Future, I would have nothing else to Complain about.

So Hop to it Playground, I want to see an MP Locked Car made available in the Forzathon Shop every week from now on, ok? Good.

The Chicken suit? Isn't that something you get right when you first play the game?

I don't have the other 3 chicken suits.

Well, had to endure "Spring Games" twice after winning the 1st event on the first attempt and all but one opponent quitting by the middle of the second event.

The final opponent must've also quit as the second round ended prematurely, but the screen didn't progress to the win screen and froze.

PITA having to do it again, but all opponents quit on second round again and that's what I like.

That happens some times, you just have to wait it out and you'll get the win.

Ranked Adventure gives you 18% for each season.

I've run into an issue as of recent involving the seasonal events rewards system. There is one being held at the "Batham Gate" Street scene, where the reward for completing first place against highly skilled driveatars is a Ford Mustang '93. However, after completing the event twice (To the required specifications) I've not received the car nor any confirmation of actually obtaining it. Any help/a solution with this issue would be much appreciated.

Happened to me last week, as well. Also happened to me once before quite a ways back. I just shrugged it off as the game being wonky, took my car, and just whistled away.

I'm not sure if this has been mentioned before and apologies if it has but it's clear that there is some adjustment process at the end of the trial and other races.

For example:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5f9mzEj9XIA

Starting positions: 11:14
1. Forty6a2
4. Der Letzt3 Lude
8. [DmD] waznewz

Race Positions near end of race: 13:56
1. Tappetpuma006
2. bboysisi
3. Der Letzt3 Lude
4. Forty6a2
5. [DmD] waznewz

Adjusted Finishing Positions: 14:07
1. Tappetpuma006
2. bboysisi
3. [DmD] waznewz
6. Der Letzt3 Lude
7. Forty6a2

Reminds me of Le Mans '66/Ford v Ferrari. Your finishing position might be adjusted taking into account your starting grid position.

This would explain why someone ahead of you visually at the end of a race may actually finish behind you if their grid position was ahead of you at the start of the race.

I think that does happen in ranked but it’s not the explanation for the video. The two cars ahead of Waznewz are both drivatars. On street race trials, quite often something seems to happen to them just before they hit the finish - you can see the one in front of him vanishes - and they are shown as finishing much lower down the field. It’s one reason why defeats often turn into wins right at the end in trial races.

I really don’t understand the point in having four races for the trial. The street races in B were quite good fun but the last race is completely pointless as the winner is already decided by who is 2-1 up beforehand. If they are going to have four races, they should include a fifth (but only to be raced if it’s 2-2). I’d love to hear the logic for four races.

Hi guys what is the fastest way to get 50% on the seasonal objective (to get the #88 Mustang RTR FD)?

Yeah, I know as I've had it happen previously, but this time was different as I did wait, but didn't get the win! :( Just got dumped back into free-roam.

No matter now as I've completed it, but still a PITA having to do something twice that's a chore for some.

Personally : Ranked Adventure Qualification, monthly rivals, PR stunts, showcase remix, weekly Forzathon, and 50% is already hit.

That said, if you haven’t qualified yet, consider the three championships if you’re at least competent enough to get 1st against highly skilled level AI. The Trial and seasonal games are team based.

Daily Forzathon challenges often don’t take much time to conplete as they can be done when working your way through the playlist.

I have two, I need to get rid of one in the auction house. I'm sure that a lot will appear in the auction house. If you want to post an auction time in my messages for me, I will put it in the auction house at that time.

It's a 3-race series - once you have won the first event, look on the map for two other Street Scene events with white icons. You need to win all three events.

99% of the time, a championship has three events. Sometimes there are four events. Either way, you need to complete all the races of the championship to finish it. On the map, look for white icons to see events you need to complete.

You must win the championship by the number of points you get from finishing each event. You don’t need to finish first in all races, but it for sure guarantees you victory.

All races must be done in highly skilled or better to guarantee you the car prize.

I wasn't really looking forward to The Trial but it was very enjoyable.

Some good drivers on my team and we won all 4 races with ease. The best driver was in an Audi S1.

Not sure if it was accidental or on purpose but one of the drivers at the front kept hitting the non-racing traffic and spinning them through 90 degrees blocking the roads. The drivatars couldn't cope with it.

My third trial... we were given the first win with less points, but won the other 3 outright. This was actually the first time I have driven a front wheel drive car in Forza... the Volkswagen thing! Front wheel drive is ok, but turns a bit weird!
