This Spring season lasted for 9 days and I've spend an hour each day of it trying to beat the trial, but i couldn't win a single time. First of all it takes almost 10 minutes to start one up. Second of all you get matched with players who have no clue how a car or anything in the game works. Third of all they leave the game as soon as they make a mistake and the game still counts them as 12th place in the same round and replace them as drivetars in the next rounds so it'll be IMPOSSIBLE to make up for lost points . Fourth of all the drivetars ALWAYS rubberband to the player in front. So if you have an underpowered car, they pass you like they're in S2 class and you're in c class. And the the cherry on the cake, the thing that made me post about it here, it's cross country racing this season. Im fine with road racing. It's okay. But there's absolutely no consistency in cross country racing. After a jump you spin out, after a little bump you will miss checkpoints because you couldn't brake, the steering response is garbage, you get bullied by your so called "teammates" and the stupid drivetars on Unbeatable difficulty, the checkpoints are small so if you make a jump for just 5 degrees more different than it was designed to be made, you'll end up miles away from the checkpoint. And the repeating upbeat music after each race just makes lose my mind. Like "oh did you see how your idiot teammate crashed into you on that corner haha so fun! And and did you see how you were in 3rd place and the rest of your teammates were in last??? HA HA HA SOOO FUN!!!" im so done with this. Either ghost everybody including drivetars, fix the matchmaking so everybody gets matched with players their own skill, remove the exclusive prizes off of trials, make the difficulty lower on cross country racing, or NEVER put any other races other than road racing on the trials.

Completed the spring trial on my first go and have re-run it a few times to help other players out.

Tips: Use a higher powered car. Other players joining with lower powered will drop out probably in 1st race. Stick with it, you only need to win 2 out of 3 races.

Cross country if you're spinning when you land you are either holding your accelerator down at end of the jump (ease off just before launch) or you're holding your accelerator down when in the air. Again brake heavily in the air or downshift if manual so you're not over revving on landing. Makes the car much easier to control and you will rarely spin.

I know all about it, im level 200 prestige 2 i didn't say im not good enough to beat it, i said the other players who are with me can't get higher than 10th place so I'll always lose no matter what. The only problem i have with spining out is that right before the jump some guy either and npc or player crashes into me making me to not take the jump straight on. So then i spin out but then again, the problem isn't me. If i wasnt good enough i would've just stopped myself playing. Wouldn't get this mad about it. I've always finished them above 5th or so place. Also an update: About 10 minutes ago i managed to be matched with a good group of players and finally won.

Add me I dont mind helping with the trial runs. I'm prestige 5, like level 2335 or something. Spring trial was so bad I kept getting put with brand new people. They hadnt even gained ONE star yet
Forza junkie since FM2. Horizons are the break I need from the track

So i just tried the trial for the first time and it was a disaster, it seems to attract the worst drivers in the game. I got a great start, moved up to second and then some a-hole of a "team mate" uses me as a brake. Also due to it being wet i had no grip even with AWD so i had to slow far more than normal and then the drivatars started to ram me as well, how the hell is this garbage supposed to be fun. The people that enter it can't drive and neither can the damn drivatards.

Totally agree! Utter shambles of an event and PG should be ashamed of themselves pushing this kind of energy wasting event on its customers. I wonder what the carbon footprint of the event is, when everyone has to attempt this many many times?

I been able to complete the Trial...

How?
Everyone left at the first race... I was alone for the 2 other races.
No-one to ram me. No AI that go crazy and side-shift on you to make you crash. Just peace.

The people I play with still stay after the first race even if they get no points. It’s stupid and annoying. I can’t escape them to win the championship. It’s an unending cycle of annoyance. Don’t know what Playground was thinking with this one.

Told you this a month ago PG. You never listen. Before putting an exclusive car in the trial make sure the trial is something doable. You don’t make it S2 Hypercars when you know how people behave in this. PG please learn this lesson. You are Stubborn.

I had another crack at it a few minutes ago, some guy speared someone else off on the first corner and two of the drivatards were so far ahead after the chaos i couldn't catch them. As if that wasn't annoying enough, i was third but got rammed off the road by a drivatard on the second to last corner so i ended up fourth. Second race and half my team quits while i'm in first, then my a-hole of a "team mate" uses me as a brake again and goes off himself, i manage to fight my way back to first only to get knocked into the woods by a drivatar that's on rails. This is NOT fun, it's ridiculous. The A.I is broken in streetscene, it drives way too fast and it's been a problem since launch. Whoever thought that streetscene, unbeatable, rain and idiots were a good mix for an event needs to be slapped.

I have this problem but I have to admit the worst part is people keep quitting I almost won then half the people quit so we lost. As of right now I hate Turn10 and pg for locking such an amazing car behind an impossible event.

I must have attempted this bs event at least 20 times and it's always that either the Drivatards ram me or people quit. I think people should be punished for quitting because it is ruining the game for everyone else who actually tries to win no matter what. Turn10 & Playground games...you should be ashamed of yourselves. I want that car really bad I've attempted the event so many times but it's impossible to win unless you have a team full of amazing racers.

To anyone who has completed this event, any tops? Is there a car that handles better than others? Trying to get the Apollo but dang it this race is like bloody bumper cars. Team mates keep ramming you as if it's necessary for them to be in first. It's a team event. If we work as a team we can complete it. If everyone keeps ramming one another no one will get the bloody car lol

Glad I saw this, I was going to hop on Horizon to get the Apollo for my collection as the trials in the past haven't been too bad. The fact alone they put this on unbeatable difficulty is beyond me, let alone S2 with rain/street racing. I am going to save myself the frustration and pass.

Honestly what people are making these decisions, do they actually play test these challenges before they are posted?

Why don't you all just send friend requests to each other and team up together instead of complaining to one another and banging your head against a rock wall (aka Randoms)?

Form some friendships and do all future Trials and Playgrounds together. Eliminate the unknown of randoms. Play with skilled players.

Whenever I see S2 Trial I already know I am going to pair up with 2 other teammates so that the randoms have zero effect on the outcome.

If you have no friends to play with start sending convoy requests to any competent player you meet in the Trial. Hit pause go to the player lobby list select the player and invite to convoy. Then try the next trial together. If you see more competent players, then invite them as well, until you have enough competent drivers together to win the event.

Now, if you are the player at the bottom, this may be tougher to accomplish, but if you are better than average, you should have no problem finding willing people that are in the same boat as you. And heck you may form a lasting friendship that you schedule to convoy with every week...

I completely agree with everything said. This is by far the worst experience I have had yet in this game. I've gotten rammed off the road more by my own team mates than the drivatards, and everyone quits the game. In the rain, at night, and a street race against unbeatable. Either I won't be able to own one of the coolest cars in the game, or I will have to resort to using nearly all my credits in the AH to get one...

I don't know why I keep buying Forza games. I have everyone (except Forza 7) since the original. But, this most likely will be my last. I don't like being forced to play online to be able to get t he things I want.

I think they do them and then just set back and laugh at the results of the comments on here and places like Reddit and Facebook. It is these types of things why I answered Retro Ckrystal with my 3 words of "My Last Horizon"

Having completed this week Trial championship, it took me 3 tries to win:

The 1st team didn't perform well such as missing checkpoints and hitting traffic and objects. All 5 teammates abandoned the championship just as the final race was beginning. I decided to pick a different car and grab a tune for it in order to stand a better chance against the drivatars. The result was an 0-3 sweep.

Team 2 also performed poorly though they performed better than team 1 in that they had a chance at winning the 2nd race though we went 0-2 so I decided to quit and matchmake for a 3rd team.

Team 3 lost the first race just like the first 2 with 2 people quitting after the opening race though I was able to do well in the first 2 races which helped my team to win race 2. The 3rd race came down to the wire as I hit an object which allowed a drivatar to pass me prior to the finish line. It appeared that we would lose by 50 points until a teammate was able to pass 2 drivatars which resulted in a close 2-1 win.

Some tips for Trial championships:

1. If your car isn't able to keep up with the AI, consider switching cars and/or tunes as certain tunes and vehicles can go fast while having excellent handling abilities.

2. Learn the tracks and the conditions, knowing the 3 tracks well can allow one to recognize which turns can be taken at a high speed and which turns require one to be careful. This can help one reduce the amount of mistakes they make.

3. Do not expect to win at first: Given matchmaking can place poorly skilled players on your team, it is normal for one to lose a few tries at first due to some players trying to shove their way to the front which can cause their teammates to wind up in an accident.

4. Be careful driving: The Drivatars and your team can be driving aggressively which makes it difficult to pass the AI as some races can devolve into a demolition derby. The rain, traffic, and the lower visibility of night races can make it difficult to go fast as one has to be able to avoid traffic, know how to drive in rain, and be able to deal with night racing.

5. It is better to be consistently good all 3 races and give your team a good chance at beating the drivatars via solid clean driving than placing 1st in one race at the expense of your team.


From what I've noticed, the 2018 Apollo Intensa Emozione is an extreme track toy car that offers excellent handling when tuned to X class.

I think they need to gift us the car (like they did with the Mosler) to make up for this abysmal event. Its just too hard to complete due to bugs with the Drivatards and the overall difficulty of the event (due to weather, event type and bugs) let's get this whole thread seen by turn10 and PG and hopefully they will see how much they have annoyed their customers
