OH MY GOSH! Dude, that’s psychotic! Congrats.....I think. How many games total now? I MIGHT try the eliminator again as they seem to be adding a lot more content/cars consistently.



I think that's 51% chance of a win at the start. 93% chance of making the final and 55% of winning if I make to the final.

I think the most important stat is only 26 times have I used a level 10.

Just had a look at mine...

10.5% overall win rate. 25.9% of finals won. (85 wins from 327.)

It is not an easy game mode! (Even if DRC may make it seem that way!)

Nice to see the Lexus LFA coming, shame it and the others will be held hostage from many players by the exclusive car system. Also really hope the Ford Focus PO gets a decent availability window (unlike the ridiculous 20 minute availability it had earlier), I have to work and can't just take random time off in the middle of the day for a video game.

Didn't look like anything else really changed in this update unless I missed something (other than another set of cars for the eliminator which doesn't interest me as I still can't use my own cars).

What is the time scale in FH? Seasons last a week, so a year is a month? Rip, you reverse aging??

So the 50 years of play (438000 min) took 50 months? Game hasn't been out that long.

Time scale in this game has never made clear sense. Times driven and played don't correlate well.

I wonder how large the population of Rover SD1 will be after this month. It's a good car, but only a select few care about it. Making it exclusive is silly.

The Focus PO feels unfinished, but the update ships this week, so it might get fixed, who knows. If it's not fixed, though, it's gonna be hilarious.
May the forced induction be with you.

Why would they do that?

What would have made sense would be to show designs only for the car you're in, while you try to change it from the garage. But it still shows all designs you've made for all cars.

If I look from the creative hub I want to see all designs for all cars.

They've got it back to front.

I would consider this a BUG and I hope they REVERT this change, it's stupid.

Just looked at some other random players' creative hubs and it also shows nothing, if they haven't made one for the car you're in. This isn't how it's supposed to work, nor how it should logically work.

I note it still shows tunes for all cars, not just the one you're in. So I will assume this is probably a bug rather than intentional.

I use that every day, so that's something that is important that is gone.

1/ You can delete designs that are not popular.
2/ You can see if a design is popular.
3/ You can see which cars you have put designs on, and which cars you haven't.
4/ You can see if a car has reached the top of the charts by how many downloads, and likes it has.
5/ You can check for mistakes in a design.

Yes that was very useful.

Ugh at when developers make pointless changes which break things or make things worse.

Like showing the car you're in while you're in an Eliminator race, which isn't consistent behaviour with how races elsewhere in the game work, for example the new Bugatti race today, it just shows 1/2 or 2/2, it doesn't need to remind me that I'm in a Bugatti. It just causes more clutter on the screen, which is something you want as little of as possible in an Eliminator race.

Ironically the one time where you do want the HUD to appear, they take it away, ie. when changing cars and you become vulnerable and disorientated - which way I am facing? Where is the edge of the arena? What other cars are nearby and may be about to challenge me? Who knows! The HUD is gone! (I mean it has been like this since the beginning with Eliminator, but imo the HUD should always remain on screen.)

Couldn't they have addressed some of these annoyances and bugs like the finish line still disappearing when you are near it, so you can lose track of quite where it is?

Or fix the bug where cars still often shift into reverse on their own when you win a head to head? Why does it do that?

Forza Horizon 4 | Series 19 Update
Jacob Norwood
Tuesday, February 11, 2020

https://forzamotorsport.net/en-us/news/fh4_Series_19

Quote:
The Forza Horizon 4 Series 19 update has arrived and brings with it with another round of The Eliminator, new cars including British touchstones, and quality of life upgrades for our livery and tuning communities. Read on for the full details!

The second round of The Eliminator was about size and round three means one thing - speed. The cars we’ve added this time around are upgraded for maximum performance and outfitted with patrol lights.

Check them out here:
Level 2: 1959 Jaguar Mk II 3.8
Level 2: 1966 Hillman Imp
Level 3: 2010 Ford Crown Victoria Interceptor
Level 3: 1996 Chevrolet Impala Super Sport
Level 4: 2014 Volkswagen Golf R
Level 6: 2012 Porsche Cayenne Turbo
Level 7: 2015 Audi RS 6 Avant
Level 7: 2014 Alfa Romeo 4C
Level 8: 2011 Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG
Level 9: 2016 BMW M4 GTS
Level 9: 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1
Level 9: 2016 Lamborghini Aventador LP750-4 SV
Level 10: 2011 Bugatti Veyron Super Sport

Get in on The Eliminator action with these new additions and… get ready to check out the cars that have arrived with this month’s update:

2019 Aston Martin Vulcan AMR Pro
They call it Aston Martin’s wildest car ever. The pride of British supercars, indeed the first one, the Vulcan was first revealed in 2015 with an initial run of only 24 cars, but you can get your hands on the wheel of the latest model thanks to the Series 19 update.

The AMR Pro track package brings all of Aston Martin’s racing advances to bear in a sleek package, on a car that didn’t even see on-track competition until 2018, at the third Le Mans Racing Festival. The package includes an enhanced rear wing, large dive planes, arch louvres and turning vanes, which increase steering, downforce, and balance.

Score this rare marvel by completing 50% of the Winter Festival Playlist. (Not obtainable before 02/27/20 14:30UTC)


2010 Lexus LFA
A supercar from Lexus is a rare thing. The LFA was a Halo Car, meant to change the way Lexus made cars, with principles developed for the LFA trickling down to every other car that Lexus produced. The LFA itself didn’t stick around for long, but its influence is still felt in every Lexus built.

The car packs a 4.8L V10 that hit 0-60 in 3.6 seconds, a top speed of 202 mph, and boasts an incredibly unique driving experience. Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda believed that the ultimate Lexus should connect with its owner. That’s why the LFA came into being. The car is an aerodynamic miracle, as fun to feel as it is to drive.

You can get this car by completing 50% of the Summer Festival Playlist (Not obtainable before 02/13/20 14:30UTC)


1984 Rover SD1

When the Specialist Division 1, or Rover 3500, was first designed by British Leyland as a successor to the P6, the key was simplicity. That meant a live rear axle instead of De Dion-type rear suspension and a redesigned Rover V8 which emphasized torque over horsepower, rather than the newer 2.2L four cylinder. It’s been called the best-designed British car ever, taking cues from the likes of Ferrari and Maserati, but was often plagued with production issues early in its run. As a result, by 1984, the SD1 had seen some cosmetic and mechanical changes, as well as an expansion to a four cylinder model.

Beat the Summer Seasonal Championship “It's Never Over With a Rover” on at least Expert level Drivatar difficulty (Not obtainable before 02/13/20 14:30UTC)


1994 Ford Supervan3
First built in the 1970’s as promotional vehicles, the Supervan combined Ford Transit vans with sports car underpinnings, for some reason. It made its first appearance at Brands Hatch, before experiencing two more iterations between 1971 and 1994. That was the year that the Supervan 3 made its debut, sporting the V8 that would eventually be used in the Benetton F1 car.

In a Transit van.

Beat the Winter Seasonal Championship “Is It a Bird? Is it a Plane?” on at least Expert level Drivatar difficulty (Not obtainable before 02/27/20 14:30UTC)


2019 Lego Bugatti Chiron
If you already own the LEGO Speed Champions expansion pack, with the Series 19 update you’ll see a new event in the northeast corner for the Forza Horizon map, provided you’ve unlocked the Master Builder’s House. Complete this event to unlock the LEGO Bugatti Chiron 2019.

If you do not already own the LEGO DLC, you really should. You can still try out the new car for free, however, by checking out the Series 19 Rivals Event. That’s in addition to a new Season Championship featuring an all-LEGO lineup. Give it a shot!
___________________

That covers the new cars for this month; here are the additional changes and fixes that arrived with this latest update:

Universal Share Codes
In addition to Event Blueprints, you can now share liveries, tuning setups and photos via share codes! When browsing any of these lists, just hit R3 to view the code, which you can also use when searching for user-generated content.

Event Blueprint History
Recently played an Event Blueprint that you enjoyed, but are having trouble tracking it back down? We’ve added a My History tab that lets you easily revisit the last 15 Event Blueprints that you’ve played. Just visit the Creative Hub menu and find the tab. This is also available in Custom Events at any starting location.

Showcase Remix – Pillar of Autumn

The Covenant is back, and this time they’re not your only obstacle. The Halo Showcase Experience has been remixed to include a rainstorm. You must complete the regular showcase before the remix is unlocked.

Additional Fixes
via our Patch Notes:
· Fixed the Achievements Heads Up, and Pacifist not unlocking. Players will need to re-meet the criteria in order to get them to unlock.
· Fixed an issue with player houses disappearing after having been unlocked and purchased
· Fixed an issue where the first line of a subtitle would display again if multiple lines of dialogue were being played
· Fixed an issue where players using metric settings were unable to get 3 stars on a chapter in the British Racing Green story

TBH if they don't fix some stuff and/or add a leaderboard I think I'm gonna quit this mode when I get to 100 wins. If they just played it themselves, surely they'd notice these things and realise they need addressing. I mean play properly and competitively, not just have a lark about for a live stream video.

Number of people who asked for this 'fix'? Zero I imagine. All I need to know in a race is my position. I already know what car I'm in.

I must admit the huge text accross the screen is so annoying.

I wonder if it in case you've forgot which mode you are playing?

Anyhoo, why would anyone ask to have their current car displayed? It makes no sense!

If your attention span is that short, you'd probably have forgotten how to read anyway.

As for on-screen clutter!

I noticed on the live stream that opponents have huge identifiers above their cars with car level and it's the first time I've seen that (and the last) as I have player names turned off in the settings and will remain to do so.

Kind of spoils the fun if you know what your potential opponents is gonna be before you get to them.

Maybe why so many players run away before I get to them.

I do think the time allowed outside of the arena should be a lot shorter and when a shrink occurs, all the car-drops outside the new arena should disappear.

This would force players to the centre quicker and create more H2H chances!

The Lego Chiron race on unbeatable is fairly tricky. Took me three attempts to win it. The Lego Chiron handles like its, well, made of Lego so it requires quite careful cornering to get the win.

Doesn't look right either! Too narrow as was mentioned on the Live Stream yesterday.

Would be nice if it looked like this version:

I laughed hard at the "forgot how to read" bit. I understand why the levels are above the cars because people always assumed I was in something slow if i'm sitting off to side waiting for the final lol. They run up to me in a level 6 and I have a warthog...good luck catching up to that rocket!
