I'd appreciate that. I know others wouldn't, though.


Where does it say you only need to do one task per challenge? They look the same as previous challenges to me.


If you compare the progression you'll see the current Forzathon has three steps required for completion. The April ones have only one.


I believe that's incorrect. I think they'll show up once it's live.

Also it say, "complete all challenges" Plural.

I was able to get the other 3 right away, yet, this one does not pop-up no matter what I do! I have ran it 6 times, with Game Type = DRIFT, RAIN, @ Maple Valley (I used Short Circuit Reverse). Records my drifts on HUD, yet, at the end it gives me a laptime!!! We just need 3000 pts, and, I have gotten that in a single drift within the lap. Over 10k pts in a lap. Using the Meyers Manx (D400 class).

PRKid
p.s. Will update if I find a solution.

The Cherry Blossoms Forzathon is broken. It registered that I completed the challenge but will not give me the car.
UPDATE
It went threw just make sure you use the regular large circuits that the only way any of them have worked for me.

Go back and run a race, it will then pop. These usually pop at the next event you run.

OK, I figured out the problem. Since the Challenge indicates it should be the drift pts in ONE LAP, I used the 1 lap as the limit on the end-condition....DO NOT DO THIS!

I left the end condition to time-based and set it to a 3 minutes, and, ran at the same track (Short Circuit Reverse) and actually ran over 2 laps. So, you can cut the time to about 1.5 mins and be OK. The Achievement popped up right away! Was even able to score 4500 (near done this since back in FM6) pts in a single drift.

Best of luck!

Never thought they´d be one challenge tasks.

OK - very short indeed, but everything popped instantly after finishing each race.

Yeah, everything worked OK.

Anyone would think Turn 10 actually knew how to code. I'm gonna err on the side of caution, going by our general gaming experience for the past six months, and assume this entirely accidental!

Maybe reason behind going down to ONLY one event per Forzathon challenge, thus, minimizing complexity.

So the Porsche Macan is pretty good then ;)

Convert to RWD, strip out all the weight you can and you’ve got something that’s quite agile despite its size.

A month for challenges that can be completed in a matter of minutes. At least they work. I ain't complaining though, just had to do a single quick lap around suzuka east to get that mx5. Took a minute, I'm serious.

Don't you take that PJ! Get that Macan back on top!

Can't let the Juke be on top of anything... Unless it's a pile of junk to be crushed or a list of the ugliest cars on the road today.

While I can see it on top of a pile of BMWs waiting to be crushed... with monster truck tires, doing the crushing... I can't see it beating out those same BMWs for the title of ugliest car on the road. It couldn't even beat the Nissan Cube with that awful asymmetrical rear window.

I know I'm not the only one who thinks FM7's Forzathon challenges are WAY too drawn out. I guess previous challenges actually took some time, but seriously? An entire month for 4 challenges that only take 20 minutes at most? I don't get why they can't just do like FH3 and have them be weekly. I just don't see it...

Loving the Miata. I have wanted it since the early videos of the car list were shown. I might even snag a couple from the credit miners in the auction house.

Well they don't know if their forzathon actually works yet so they're keeping it at a month duration.

Truthfully I'm with you, this month long quote "challenge" is another reason why I'll spend less time in this game. Unsure what that means? Here's the short reason: it's not engaging anymore.

Don't believe me? Endure a night or more of visual glitches and game-ruining bugs then get back.

20 minutes isn't a challenge, it's a desperate grab at our game time and it failed.

As someone who bought into Forza 7 during pre-order, I'm extremely disappointed with everything from then until now. You've failed to fix the game. You fail to give the community what they ask for.

YOU. HAVE. FAILED.

I actually quite like the Juke 👍🏻

Congrats on the time KT. I’ve also set good times at Catalunya National and VIR Full (Night) if you want to have a run at those.

I’ll leave my Sonoma time lie there for now, but once Casual Racing Mondays has a Modern SUV night I may return 😉

I think a B/600 version of the Macan will do alright in the Hoppers, same build as I mentioned above but with a little more power. It won’t keep up with a good driver in an S2000 but given the average pace level of a Hopper player it should get you a few podiums 🏆

The FRC started so maybe this is a trial month of keeping it simple in order to use available resources for FRC issues?
