Just had two photo finishes in succession...

At Ashbrook Apex I had a decent lead but he really caught up fast. I turned into the final corner just before him and fully expected to win but he powered past me and just overtook me at the very end. I guess the Atomic Punk is quicker than I thought. Then the final race at Highland Charge I started behind him, caught up at the end but too late to pass.

Afterwards I realised he was on my blacklist but I hadn't noticed. I'd made the note that I'd beaten him at A class but only just (so I wouldn't want to take my chances again). Good call...

So this loss by the tightest of margins cost me 23 points.

Your Nova is so low! It is like the suspension has failed.

The tune is '59.285 Astmoor' by HLundh if you're interested, it's usually very competitive but I didn't get the best out of it on this occasion!

I've recouped 21 of the 23 points lost with four more wins anyway.

Just had a weird bug in ranked FFA which I don't remember seeing before. I won an adventure against a league 7 (so winning some points would be guaranteed). The final points scoreboard came up, then the podium, but then it just went straight to the screen showing credits being awarded - it never showed the ranking points gained. The ranked page and leaderboard both showed the previous rank. Anyway I restarted the game and found I'd got +5. But I don't think this has ever happened before.

Well... don't alt+tab when you wanna skip adventure. Apparently that counts as doing something :(
Was put in S1 dirt with Gauntlet at the end in stock Hoonigan Focus PI886. 9 people lobby - two 33s, two Mustang DD, but highest rank was 9.
First race finished 3rd. Freeroam rush finished 1st, don't know how I did it or maybe how they managed to not win it. So it was looking quite winable, but then I was disconnected :(
TBH i'm suprised with that DC. Was playing for like 2+ hours and there was no problem with it. Neither in freeroam, RTA or CA.

EDIT:
Forgot to mention. Stock Hoonigan Focus top speed is around 220km/h, so I really don't know how could I won that freeroam rush.

Also did another adventure. +6 points. Will do some more to see if there is delay in penalty.

EDIT2:
Did two more adventures.
First won easily for +5.
Second was A-class street scene with lobby full of Nova's. TZ2's, AP's and Daytona. Players rank 7-13. Very unlucky last straight in 2nd race - Nova on left, AP on right, me in the middle and oncoming traffic, with no place to escape. In 3rd was pushed into building - partially my fault.
Finished 2nd to rank 8. Got -20 points for this, so can't tell if there was penalty added fot that DC or not.

Worst part is that I was 2 points from 4500 :(

This is what i am up against to. Last night adventure.

These guys are so fast that they miss their checkpoints and still catch up. Dont need to mention the freeroam rush disadvantage.
When they start ramming they all aim for the guy in green, so i guess the random start puts me last to protect me.

I doubt the DC was included in the -20, that's the sort of loss which is normal for losing to a league 8.

Maybe you would be better to skip cross country and dirt lobbies, if you feel you can't compete with DLC cars you don't have access to.

Just had this win and was amazed to get +23 points for it. I see GOExxxxxx got +16.

I’ve flagged before that when there are all unranked players, it seems to give you disproportionate points (in my cases like +3 but still the equivalent of beating a League 2/3). I’ve not seen that scenario though, where you have a ranked player and both of you get big points for beating someone unranked.

I tried to find ChelvisLP on the leaderboard to see if he was a high ranker but he doesn't seem to be. At least if he was GM or league 1 it might have made some sort of sense. He was slow in the races too, 24 seconds off the pace in the first race, 9 seconds in the 2nd, 5 seconds in the 3rd.

Ouch - just did my qualifying race and lost to an extremely quick league 11. -16 points. Obviously started behind him in races 1 and 2. Won race 3 fairly easily. That will take a while to recover!

Tried a second one and ran into a speed hacker. Funny stuff. How do I report him? Not that it will do anything of course.

You can report people here Jezza, for what it's worth (debatable):

Did the game give you your GM hat and stuff this time?!

He’ll get reported anyway as he’s top of the monthly rivals with an obvious speed hacked time. Won’t get me my points back but fortunately it was only 5. 21 points lost in total in two adventures though. That’s a lot of wins 😅.

I’m not checking until the season sorts itself out in a day or so and the rankings get updated properly. I doubt it though!

Even ignoring the well known problem with points in TA I found out first hand why a lot of people wouldn't bother.

Changed to doing it for the monthly playlist completion with it having the potential to only be 2 races, so S1 Winter Road in the '92 NSX, me + a League 5 posted 1-2's in all 3 races (Derwent Reservoir and Ambleside Sprints + Wind Farm Circuit) but we only just won 2-1 with 150pts difference in the last race, had a league 10 in our team who wasn't great but at least scored ok in every race, the other half of our team though all in 900PI cars somehow managed to all lose twice to an 881 Trailcat.

I can see why so many chose to play with a select group only when it was the best option pre FFA, playing with randoms makes it exactly like the trial where you can end up with nothing through no fault of your own.

I have got the GM hat etc this time, so that’s good news. Given that, I won’t worry too much that my third attempt at an adventure this month resulted in a disconnect, in race 3 when I’d already won. That’s one defeat to a GM pace League 11, one loss to a speed hacker and one disconnect. Going well this month! Won my 4th race but lost circa 50 points for the disconnect. 70 points lost in 3 adventures.

Congrats on getting GM properly recognised and rewarded by the game, unlucky on the misfortune!

Does seem like the disconnection gremlins are back, I was cut off while the first race was loading yesterday, but thankfully wasn't deducted any points - big relief. Will try and get one of my accounts over the 4750 line at least this month, if I can.

Just lost 19 points to a league 6. First race my lap times are streets ahead so it seems there's no problem. (These are all spring times in the wet.)




Then suddenly for the second race he is fast.




Third race was Horizon sprint in heavy rain, he started ahead of me and won.

He's up to league 5 now, 31-6. It's just a bit unusual to see someone so much off the pace in the first race suddenly improve so much for the next two. He was 2nd behind me in the whole first race so it isn't like he was held up by traffic.

Yeah, I think I’m done with FFA. Recovered 20 or so points but then just lost to a League 2 who was probably equal pace to me but nudged me into a breakable wall when I had the speed to pass him on race 2 and rear-ended me to get past me on race 3. Only cost me -5 but it just isn’t worth the time.

Another disconnection... won the first two races then cut off a second after the scoreboard appeared. Doesn't seem to have affected my score or stats (4-1). Was a weak lobby with best of league 10s so would have only got +0 for winning anyway probably.

But how about sorting out the servers or netcode... I bet a trillion dollar company could find the money for this if they wanted to, you know.

Well, I’ve now covered the points I lost in races (including those for losing to the speed hacker). Just the 50 disconnection points still to go...

Had a few wins for meagre points as usual, and then this happened... met some of the worst collection of rammers you've ever seen. And some fast under-ranked players too. Add in low starting positions and this was the result.
