Quote:
The Forza Racing Championship will return in 2018, where competitors will compete for more than $250,000 in Forza Motorsport 7.

"Our vision for Forza is to bring together racing communities and real world automotive communities and gamers and actually create this massive community of gamers that love cars and love games," Dan Greenawalt, franchise creative director for Forza, said in an interview with ESPN.

It all starts with the ForzaRC 2018 Preseason Invitational on March 24th in Seattle. After that, the regular season will begin. It will be split into two series, each with seven weeks of ranked events, and ending with a live playoff event with a top prize of $75,000.

After the completion of both series, the top 24 drivers will be invited to compete in the ForzaRC World Championship, with a $100,000 prize pool.

I did not see any reference to a Recreational Series like we had last time. Does anyone here know whether there will be a Recreational Series this time as well?

I'm thrilled this starts April 2nd!

Here I was thinking I would miss part of the season due to a very nice honeymoon. Man this makes my day.

Might be the first esport season where I'm not doing overtime, there's no 1000 year floods screwing things up, and no weeklong vacations. Finally. Finally I can at least put forth maximum effort.

Finals is a long shot, but am hopeful to finish this season without wondering what if.

I noticed something rather relevant -
"3. Participation fee

No fees are required to take part in the ForzaRC program. However, you do require the following;

An Xbox One
Xbox Live Gold Membership
Forza Motorsport 7
Internet connection"

I guess that means PC players get the short end of the stick as far as ForzaRC goes?

so I have a question, when it says they are ranked matches, how is this done? is it over a live race via matchmaking, or is it through the rivals mode?

I had a feeling this would happen. T10 can make it to where PC players can't take part. This was mentioned a long time ago before Forza 7 dropped. I'm assuming it's because they want to prevent hacking issues??

I would imagine PC will be eligible at some point.

In previous FRCs there have been private 1v1 matches. Replays were required to be saved in event of dispute. It worked ok some times and other times you had to wait forever when players don't show up to get support to move you along. Sometimes support is quick and other times they are overwhelmed with issues.

In the most recent FRC there where private multiplayer races of 12 drivers hosted by gfinity staff and helpers. To qualify for the race you had to place top 24 in your region via rivals. Top 6 finishers in each semi went to the live weekend finals.

I would assume ranked matches are something similar to the group races but maybe more races. Instead of qualifying via rivals to the semi finals, maybe it's qualify for quarterfinals?

thanks for clarifying, ive never done something like this before but I figured what the heck, I'm not getting any younger. I did see they will have more info in march, so I guess its TBD for now.

That is basically just copy paste from last year's event. I am confident that PC players can enter.

I just hope the same. It isn't too smart to exclude the playerbase you wanted to attract when releasing the game on multiple platforms and making it crossplay between them from the biggest event in your game.

Hello, Everyone!

This is my first Forza Racing Championship I have ever entered.
I win a lot of multiplayer races so I decided to join this. Might win some money.
How does it work? How can I make myself Competitive, and how can I prepare?

Thanks for any tips,

I think it means that as long as you can play in an online lobby you're good. On xbox you're required gold, but if you're not required gold to play online in PC you should be fine.

Can we also expect ingame prices for all participants?

I think in Forza 6 people who participated got some cars and stuff.

Anyone can take part as long as you sign up on gfinity and register for the event. T10 does not weed out players from the start. Everyone has a fair shot.

More info will likely drop in March

Winning a lot is a good start, but who are you winning against and where are you placing on the leaderboards?

I'm in pinnacle and I win or come close a lot. There are many times where myself and another player are 1,000ft ahead of 3rd. My lap times range from a top 10 to top 200 in lobby. Leaderboard count, car choice and my skill level in various classes determines the likely leaderboard placement.

Most of the elite drivers are hard to find on some leaderboards and in lobbies.

In an esport environment I can grind my way to around 150 in the world at my peak. And that is after 100-150 laps.

If you can place better than me than you will do fine in esports. Winning money is highly unlikely buy you may win free expansions.

A safe bet would be driver gear and some locked car as a way for T10 to encourage folks to participate.

Yes, Forza 6 did award out stuff but I think the easiest prize was placing top 50% in a league. Obviously that can't happen now since leagues are different.

There is a rivals event set up like ForzaRC. It is under featured events, called "ForzaRC March Training Grounds". Has all the rules, no driving line, manual with clutch, etc. Good place to start practicing under Forza RC rules.
