I'd rather have to just complete 20, than win 1....
I know, I'm just tired of doing playground games to win cars, they're just really boring to me :P


I'm with ya, but I'm just saying doing them without the pressure of trying to get a W makes them much more enjoyable (or is it not as miserable.....).

I feel your pain. While I'm not "extremely introverted", I do feel like a fish out of water in competitive online environments with strangers. I'll go ahead and give it a go if it doesn't feel too alien. (Racing doesn't. The games do.)

So I bought the Raptor HE at auction. 860,000+ CR. The most I've spent on a car at auction yet, even HEs (of which I've bought 3 others). It was worth it to not feel like I was missing out. But where are the "FORZA HORIZON" tire letters?

could have set a time of 1 minute or whateverfor infected , then the other one quits and bang Raptor HE in your garage

Yes, I had read about setting a one-minute blueprinted game. It's just not how I want to play, even if I can find someone to do it with. I'm not inclined to go that far afield for something I can buy with play money. A handful of Goliath runs or bounty one-on-ones with this very truck, and it will pay for itself.

My thoughts exactly. I sure spent more than 20 games trying to win that one flag run last event and failed. Now I at least know it when it's over :)

A bit late but I don't mind helping others to get the Challenges or Achievements. I do it all the time with my sons and friends in different places. Some online players either don't know or don't care. Mic or no mic it doesn't matter, but messaging does help, usually by Xbox Smartglass. I boosted all four events in the last Forzathon by creating Blueprint Playground Games lasting a minute.
Happy to help out but I usually get to play FH3 on weekend mornings, Oz time.

I just want one!

I liked winning that S 14 ...now if they would do a Porsche 928S...I would be in heaven...or finally bring the classic Ford Gran Torino from Starsky & Hutch to the game but since they brought the Crown Victoria with the police lights to the game...a cop theme car might not be what they want...I didn't care about the Warthog but the Lexus IS300, a Volkswagon Beetle or 58 Cadillac Eldorodo convertible would be cool!

Also nice that it counts all Playground Games and not just certain game modes. It always sucks when you join an Adventure in progress and the one game you actually needed happens to be the one that you missed, and you waste half an hour hoping the last 3 events are the mode you need.

So for a quick easy barrel roll go to the construction site, drive up to the building where you can get to the second story landing and drive slowly and almost parallel to the edge and you will land a perfect barrel roll every time once you get speed and angle right... also it helps to clear out all the cat walks on the ground underneath.. I did 5 in a row just goofing around in my HE Camaro. But I imagine just about any car will do it.

Ok well instead you need to set a top ten time on Gorge Cross Country.......

In short 20 games is giving the car away in my opinion.

And presumably you can run 20 x 1 minute games if you want to.

I was just running that track before I came to work and can't remember either lol.

I do know its one of the first two circuits if you go into rivals, then Byron bay....

Also no need to do three different danger zones, just do it three times on the one you like.

The one at the shipwrecks is super easy, i even did that in a Bowler S1 tune that is supposed to be for the Playground games. :)

I think if you max tune the Ariel Nomad with a rally setup you can't go wrong, that's how I will approach it.

The barrel rolls don't have to bank either. If landing breaks the skill, it'll still count as long as you land on all fours.

My first two attempts were ugly and didn't bank, but still counted, did three more pretty ones and then it popped.
