Yeah, I'm thinking I might take one or two stabs at it, and then stay out of everyone else's way. We'll see how it goes. I don't really need rabbit ears.

Something quite odd happened during my Seasonal Playground Games: a white 2017 Ford M-Sport Fiesta RS upgraded to S2 class appeared in our team. It wasn't with us in the start, it joined in the second event, moving somewhat slowly for its superior PI. More strangely still, it left before it was over.

It had no impact on the ultimate outcome of the competition, because the opposing team was completely devastated after a most severe 6-5 loss in Flag Rush against us (I mean, imagine losing for a single point! The shame! How could one ever recover?), so only one brave van tried to drown itself in the main artificial lake before quitting as the others.

I shall proceed to file this bizarre happening in my: "Heh, as long as we win..." folder.

I've been skipping the Playground Games, so that ship has sailed.

Street scene, unbeatable, s2998. Yeah, that was real fun. Came in 1st, 1st, and 4th. Actually only won one race points wise, glad it decided to give us another.

Idk why, but street scene is on a whole other level of difficulty with unbeatable AI

Pgg was even better, my team of 5, against blue team of 4. We start with defend, they all quit before their flag rush was over, we won😁

It seems to be a bit different on Expert too. I've gotten pretty good against Expert, but I struggled with the street races last week.

In my experience it all depends on the car and tune you use. Get the right car and tune and any race on expert is generally beatable. I think the viper was the street race car for last week and someone on here posted a great tune for it.

This weeks Trial is another big middle finger pointed at the players.
Koenigsegg hypercars in the narrow streets of Edinburgh at night.
Did they think it was hard enough? Maybe add rain next time.

All that plus the usual problems like people taking part using stock cars, people leaving when the first race wasn't won and of course the awful matchmaking which gives you an disadvantage from the beginning starting with only 5 or less players.

Actually when people leave in Trial it gets easier because you get more points the less people you are.
We had 3 people leave after the first lost race and then I managed to win twice and the other 2 guys managed to come in 5th and 6th.
A win nets you 650 points in that scenario compared to 350 if you are 6.

I was also placed in the first starting row twice when we were 3.

You just use the default Mosler or Agera RS upgraded to X class to do all challenges every week particularly for the danger signs as both these cars seem to “fly” a long way.

Yea. I'm not sure why people complain about people quitting the trials. It's easier with less players. Less players means less points for the AI.

[Mod Edit - thread merged - MM]

Koenigsegg coop trial
Guys this championship is insanely difficult and the AI handles the Koenigsegg better than Stig.

First race, we always win but the second and third races are hell.

And it's always either me or my co-drivers hanging in the ditch and we lose. And if you're not going offroad you hit one of the traffic cars.

Leave the AI difficulty as is but please remove the traffic.
