Thank you PG, you just make me go into full-tilted mode. Give me League 20 award when I reach 10 in FFA. also, I can't describe the amount of fun I had in a 4V5 playground game, which is none, and 30 minutes wasted. btw, why loading the car roster take longer time than before. and the bug with the skill banner is not fixed but now the PR stunt banner got the same problem.

How so? If it was the pun for the announcement poster, that pun was from the players in a pollon discord. Re-reading it, can see how it can be misunderstood..

i'm trying for like an hour to win the buggy B 700 championship and it's impossible....there's not enough time to win the race since i start at the bottom of the grid and the AI despite being under 700 they are faster than me and i cannot catch up..... what is going on here am i missing something??.... i upgraded the car with the best possible tune i could find and it didn't help... the AI is just faster for no reason

what is going on here??

The remix is kind of a good idea but not that much.

Arena and ranked ... I just want to collect cars not to play every mode even them which are not a real racing thing. I don't like ranked even if I'm good enough to play them. I don't want every game to become a grind quest to fill their low population gamemode. No just no.

I'm not using up all my FP just so the price of items in the shop will go down. If people feel their being screwed because I'm hoarding my points, that is too bad. Tough it out with those forza lives like I did
Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track. 🏁🏁

FH4 and I have a volatile love/hate relationship 😑

Hopefully FH5 will treat me better 😬😬

i'm starting to think either the AI is broken or you people don't know how to create proper race events.... i mean these sprint races are way too short there's not enough time to go from last place to first place, especially with this ridiculously overpowerd AI

I won it, but just because top AI driver was bad enough in second race, 3rd race is worst i try that maybe 20 times best time i get was 2,15 while top AI driver hit 2,07 sounds balance.

Maybe they should put stuff in there that people actually want to buy!

You must complete 50% of the panels to earn the 50% Seasonal reward, and all panels to earn the 100% Seasonal reward.

Okay, cool, so with the Festival Playlist things are more organized so easier to approach. Bravo.

I may be missing something, but.... "there are 11 panels for Summer", they are nicely listed above...... are there also panels for Series 7? I'd like to win those Series 7 cars if I can figure out what 50% and 100% are for which races. Thx.

Maybe if they actually put items in the shop that people wanted to spend their points on instead of constant garbage then maybe we all wouldn't have so much in reserve? CRAZY IDEA!!!

I know its all been said before about the playlist but this is really putting a sour taste in my mouth. After all the complaining people had about putting cars behind PVP events and the problems with the drag PVP and the Mosler Trial, they decided to address this by requiring everyone to do 3 PVP events a week, two of which you need to win, just for one car every week, and one car for the month. And then on top of that all the dailies etc. It is nothing but a giant middle finger to the player base. So after 7 months, now they decided to add the playlist feature, something that entirely changes the way cars are added to the game. The only legitimate reason I can think of for doing so is to obviously increase the player count in certain lesser played areas in the game. I'm sure they had a meeting and what it came down to was that it was much cheaper and easier to implement the Playlist feature and forcing everyone to play these game types, rather than invest all the time and money into trying to fix the feature so people would use free will to play them instead, because you know, they would be enjoyable.

Not to mention now the seasonal championships are just giving us regular wheelspins for first place, and a sweatshirt that I'm pretty sure I already have. And I haven't confirmed this myself, but I heard that the Trial was 4 events instead of 3. How the hell does that work? Let's just ignore the fact that recently PG keeps making cross-country and rally events with muscle cars for some godforsaken reason. The damn game has TONS of awesome rally cars in it, WHY do we have to keep making awful abominations for these events recently. Stop it, please. I know most of you at Playground aren't even remotely into cars but muscle cars are not known for there offroad ability.

Well, now its time to load up the game and get to "work". Oh, what joy. Thankfully I will most likely have the time every day to finish the playlist, and though I won't enjoy playing the Playground event I'll hopefully be able to carry my awful team to victory. But unfortunately, I know that there are many people out there that this won't be as easy, or downright impossible.

Sidenote, the people of Forza Reddit don't actually seem to understand how exactly the playlist works nor the requirements. And I'm guessing people who don't visit Reddit or these forums won't understand either. I think a lot of people are going to unknowingly fail the playlist and we're going to see a lot of complaints after each week.

It's proper infuriating. The AI is godlike, good luck catching on the coupla buggies in front - near impossible. Think they were 15 secs ahead in the last race, what the hell devs ?

A couple tips to dealing with speed AI, specially the high speed and short cross country.

Skinny tires
Higher pressure
Focus upgrades for top end power
Increase wheel diameter and heavy wheels if possible for some free PI
Do not lighten flywheel
Ensure can adjust at least final gearing
Roll bars stiffer to help high speed turn.

While not anything difinitive, it should help get you caught up.

This is not a "new way to play."

Repeat: THIS IS NOT A "NEW WAY TO PLAY."

This is the SAME WAY WE PLAYED BEFORE. The only difference is that you turned the whole game into a glorified honey-do list and locked the only new rewards behind it.

This wouldn't be the first game I've quit because the design leaders decided that chores and lists are the best way to keep players engaged.

I have about 9,700 forzathon points at this point. If that's effecting other people, that's a stupid way of doing things. Getting rid of them would be work. I have all the cars they offer, some of which I have more than one, and my garage is full. Getting rid of points would require me to get rid of a car, buy a car with points just to remove it from garage, and then repeat. Garage management is already a pain in the posterior.

And if anybody is trying to get the monthly 100% reward, the Capri FE, but they are also in the group that "drive 10 miles" challenges are bugged for making them impossible to complete, you're not going to be able to get the Capri FE. Two weeks from now, in winter, one of the daily challenges is a "drive 10 miles". If you're in this group that can't complete these kind of challenges because they are bugged, you're like me and your monthly challenge to get to the Capri FE is already over as it's impossible to get without completing the "drive 10 miles" challenge in two weeks.

I called this.

Not impossible but really damn hard, but if it's hard to me (im at top50 in rivals in that last track) i can just imagine that more casual players this is actually impossible even with abusing rewind and restart.

Not impossible but extremely hard for the casual gamer.

Ended up using the 1969 Baja Bug with "Offroad Seasonal" tune by TATO790709 (from on here I think)

I used stock Can-Am Maverick and won all the races from the first attempt. Maybe it will help to someone, at least to people that have a car pass
