Hello! I'm thinking about buying FM7 Ultimate Edition for PC. I've been playing forza for many years on XBOX, but now I decided to switch to PC. I'm only interested in multiplayer. But I heard a lot of horrible stories about people buying the game and then getting unfair bans from multiplayer for 20 years just because somebody else rammed them and stuff like this. So my first question - is this really so bad? Will I really get banned just because somebody rammed me and then blamed me for his ramming?
Second question. Are all online races in Forza 7 now use Forza Race Regulations? Or are there some online races with FRR and some without?
Third question. Are those unfair bans somehow connected to FRR? Like, do I have a higher chance of unfair ban if I race with FRR, or it doesn't matter?

With all the ramming that is rampant in online hoppers (except leagues), there’s no way an occasional Accident is going to cause a ban. I don’t think anyone at Turn10 is even monitoring this game anymore, cycled division is horrible with tanners if you can’t get away from the pack.
7 Forzas, 4 VIP/Ultimate editions, 1 refund. Such a shame🤦‍♂️

Thank you for your answer. But what about FRR? Does ALL online races in Forza 7 now use Forza Race Regulations?

I highly doubt there are a lot of bans for crashing into people as there are a bunch of people online who specifically join to bash others off the track. It's for that reason that I only play the 101 online as all cars are ghosted there. But it does create a huge limit in tracks and cars I can use.

Race regulations are only available in a few online races and definitely don't guarantee that you're not bashed off the track. In fact... I've had multiple situations where I got spun out by another car doing a pit manouvre on me and on top of that I (as the victim) received a time penalty for that. More so if during the spin I hit another car. So they need some more work.

Long story shore:
- Race regulations: only in some races
- Bans: highly unlikely unless a lot of people start repoting you
- Is the game worth it: yes (in my opninion)

The only hoppers using FRR are clearly labeled as such, and are (from memory) FRR Cycled Production, FRR A-Class and FRR S-Class.

If you are relatively quick and upset the wrong people you will get banned. I have done. You can get banned for petty things.
Bearing in mind this is a game for 3 year olds up. There is also a beta lobby where you are penalised for cutting or ramming. Maybe hard-core players should use this??!!
The mods are volunteers who play the game and have friends who play online. They take pleasure in issuing bans. I have proof of this.

I to got banned twice what happens is the clean and fast drivers dont report the rammers with clips...there there to have fun thus the clean drivers are getting banned and the rammers are ruining the lobbys.I cant believe forza is not smarter than this the mod who bans players should be banned.As it stands right now rammers run the game and the clean guys are leaving good job turn 10.For one more example the last 20 races i ran before i got banned i literally got rammed off the track 3 to 5 times per track i didnt record clips but i got banned......ummmmmmm again good job turn 10

To add to above quote i supported turn 10 ive bought all forza 7 titles and all 4 horizon titles and i get banned cuz of rammers i remember when backone abs ruled the track them were the good old days now whoever runs turn 10 needs to rethink his thinking.They should rename the seris to we support rammers and ban loyal customers cuz we got a thinking problem by david ball my fav song

Same experience here. I guess I'll get in the back of the line. Had some "pro" come in to the hopper and start bumping me repeatedly from behind over several races. I can excuse "rubbins' racing contact," but as many people here have already expressed, you get pretty good at recognizing when someone is doing it intentionally vs accidentally. So naturally I became frustrated and lined him up at the end of a long straight and punted him in to the cheap seats as they say. Didn't say word over the mic but had a good laugh as he chased me down over several races with clear intentions of doing the same. I laughed as I watched him in the rear view mirror attempting to do the same over and over. Eventually he left but he sent me a message with his intentions. Sure enough I received a message stating I was banned. I couldn't believe it. The worst part is the forum rules that specifically denounce bumping, yet actually have the nerve to state "don't retaliate or you will be banned." They even talk about first turn pileups and blah blah blah. How about no? How about you cut corners or bump and you get booted from the lobby? The old Forza2 use to let lobbies police themselves. If you were running the room, you could boot folks from the lobby. Easy peasy. Now, I am sure some will say I shouldn't have retaliated but T10 has the ability to review footage. Why not hunt down the real instigators of this nonsense?? How about instead of banning me you review the footage that lead up to the confrontation in the first place. All your answers are right there, T10. Lazy. Penalties for drivers would stop this nonsense. If you cause contact or cut corners, disable their car and put them in a penalty box for the rest of the race. Wont be buying Forza 8 and will definitely be replacing Forza7 with another racing game. Glad I didn't pay for this
