Glad to see B-class replacing S2-class for dirt racing in online adventure, as well as freeroam rush removed for those 2 championships; I can see it being alright for dirt and cross country, but for asphalt- based, it's a huge disadvantage if your car is setup for grip and is RWD, which is what i like using rather doing the ole AWD swap (unless it's for cross country). As for drift adventure, i'm interested in that since i like to do a lot of drifting, though i do wish we had the same drift suspension as FM7, in FH4 it doesn't feel the same. I'm happy to see the Barrett-Jackson pack coming to FH4, been wanting to drive the Bronco in a off-road environment.

so last night they mention that they will find a way to take Forzathon point off you as some please have loads,

does they mean they will find ways for us to spend them, or put the prices up, or they will just remove or limit the amount of points you can have unused

I assume (????) they won't literally reduce your existing balance to punish you for holding it rather than spending it. That would be like the government stealing your savings to stimulate the economy, to incentivise you to spend it, á la 'use it or lose it'. (They are actually already doing that insidiously by having negative real interest rates, but that's another story.)

My initial impressions... drift adventure goes on too long. Should be 2 laps only.

How's the initial set-up work? Is it open class with an awd and rwd as an option? Or is it different classes with random awd or rwd lobbies?
I buy, upgrade and tune cars to the max. That's what I live for in Forza. I'm always in the need for more cars. Check out my custom routes in Horizon 4! https://forums.forzamoto...routes.aspx#post_1133141

It's live. Ranked and unranked. Gotta get to level 3 of unranked to play ranked.

It isn't 3 laps either, it's 7 minutes on a timer. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.........

So far it's been B+A class RWD then S1+S2 class AWD.

Basically after a few mins we've all done 2-3 laps and are bored, then are left driving round pointlessly and trying to avoid dozing off.

7 mins would be feasible if its a big course. Which routes have you played on? I think they showed prince street course in the livestream

Is it S2 vs S2 or S1 vs S2? And the same for the A and B classes

Mixed classes, it says B-A or S1-S2 and you can choose anything you want in that range.

Sorry am not giving detailed answers but alt-tabbing and trying not to get kicked for idle.

Actually I quit at the start of the 3rd adventure as I ran out of time to pick a suitable car and was put in something unsuitable.

I like drifting in Forza but first impressions of this are bad, it's too boring. Doubt I'll be playing it much.

With each adventure taking 25 minutes, most of which is wasted time, that's just no good for me. I have better things to do, like watching paint dry.

I think seven minutes is to much time for a single event, 3 laps is plenty imo, one warmup lap and two serious laps. Gonna do some test runs tonight and see how I feel about it.

Another thing from the two rooms I completed, it was very competitive indeed. I got completely owned, I think I finished like 2nd last and 4th last or something like that. The top people were getting like double my points or more per lap.

In the first room I had a good excuse, because I didn't have a drift car in the B-A class so I used a stock RWD car which had way too little power and way too much grip. But then I got S1-S2 and used my go-to drift car, the #43 drift Viper, and I still got owned. One other person used the same car and he finished near the top, so it was just me not being good enough.

Maybe this is an indication that the early adopter players are the most skilled, as I doubt the average casual player would be this competitive.

Anyway yeah the amount of time it goes on for just sucks ALL the fun out of it. You can have three road or street races in the time it takes to finish ONE drift event. That's ridiculous. People will have usually put in their best score by the end of the 2nd lap, so any more laps are redundant. I'm amazed this got through testing like this.
