No shenanigans with the Trial this week thankfully even though I had someone called [Mod Edit - do not name and shame others. See the Forza Support article on reporting other players - MM] in my team who made it clear that name isn't ironic (sad huh?) and either had a poor tune or simply chose the wrong car, used a Skyline R34 and it was unbelievably sluggish from 2nd-5th gear.

Online adventure is just showing as locked for me in the playlist and has done since I came on a few minutes after the season started, rewards + ranked are also greyed out.

Edit: Almost like the game seen me post as the adventure stuff all went back to normal a few minutes after I posted this originally.

Must have goofed up with the timing so it ends at the same time as the forzathon shop now.
Well the countdown went to 0 and I restarted the game, it now says series 31 like it should do, but it says I have completed it which I have not. Oh well, free 15%


Also weekly forzathon chapter 4 “rally champion” (drive 10 miles) is showing in metres? I thought it wanted me to drive 16,093 miles at first...


In the horizon backstage menu, the symbol for the number of passes you have in the very top right hand corner is completely borked. How do tiny things like that get broken?

Series started with a bit of a mixup around online adventure, continued with a great rammer (reported and blocked) in series 31 online adventure FFA.
Then there was the A 800 road racing trial with retro sports cars and some of previous races leaked into this one as well ... bumper cars racing, wall riding, the whole shabang.
Luckily my pick was able to put me into the lead very fast and run away from all the shenanigans - 3x 1st and 3:0 for team.
Lotus 340R, tune shared as Road - 395 419 569

With all online annoyance out of the way, it was time to relax, slowly ... :)
So moving to S2 998 road racing with Bugattis and I pick one of many Divos in my garage (need to do a garage sale soon, or just throw many things in garbage).
Not really happy with it, but I wasn't expecting much out of Bugattis
Bugatti Divo, tune shared as Road - 264 617 385

Maybe now its time to actually relax ... it was, with B 700 street scene racing, with Chevys. So it was finally time to use my El Camino Again :)
Chevy El Camino, tune - 184 071 283

Finished with C 600 dirt racing, with retro rally cars and ofc I picked Mr. Bean's car
Mini Cooper S, tune - 698 116 404

Time for PR stunts and Koenigsegg Agera RS, tune - 167 849 655 smashed danger sign and speed trap with ease, speed zone was left for McLaren Senna, tune - 176 256 116

Weekly Forzathon car is Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI, I used B 700 tune, shared as Offroad - 172 805 517, picked Forrest Green as easiest speed zone, then used my custom blueprint at Derwent water trial, share code - 764 612 023 and finished with some driving around.

Again finished with a pic


Hope thgis is of any help to someone, take care and have fun, bb

Edit
Finally found out how to get share codes, even if they don't show at your tune nowdays - share your tune, then go to find/load new tunes and search for it, you'll get share code there.

Edit 2
Rimac Concept 2 is Super 7 reward car this week.

The games and the C8 championship have some auto overlap overlap so I used a 70 Camaro for both. It's a race tune but did pretty well in the games.

I chose a 92 Silvia for the Trial for something different. It did pretty well beating all drivatars and winning in one race over a 92 nsx. The nsx won the others. I hung back to avoid other players until an easy pass presented itself.

Used an untuned Divo for the Bugatti championship. It went fine. If you don't already have a qualifying car you may as well just buy the reward unless you need the completion for the series or season.

C8 and Games: 70 camaro 102 125 328
Trial: 92 Silvia 454 135 829

For the stunts a 98 Supra knocked them out. For the speed trap I started out on the grass lined up with the bridge.
Speed Zone 98 Supra 600 737 502
Jump and speed trap 98 Supra 609 842 300

This one, though.....It's like if I get close to Blue, it just shoves him ahead. And since he's on a bike, he has better acceleration than I do. So...do I have to murder him on the last corner?


i think u gotta make shortcuts while still hitting checkpoints like the bikers if not theres no chance and the blue bike will pass u at the end no matter how good u corner



It's possible to do that, but you shouldn't touch water (in any cases you can solve that) and do end of race on very high speed

I agree...
Anyone looking to get through the 5 Dirt events quick, we can help each other out? I'm trying to get level 5 blueprinter. 10s race, just hang a right at the fork while the AI goes left. Thank you to anyone that makes the trek.

5 races might be a bit much, for just a Forzathon, but I actually didn't mind too much. I did them all on Fortune Island.
Fairly decent A class rally tune for the Lancer here:
101 050 312.

For the street races, I used the '70 Corvette. It wasn't too bad at all for street races. Serviceable tune here:
128 236 964

I lost a Trial for the first time for a long time today. I went in with an 800 car, but all of my teammates were in lower PI cars, so me being at 800 meant there was a drivatar none of them could beat, and it also meant it was hard for me to slow down the fastest drivatar enough for them to catch up. It was 1-1 going into the last race, and I did slow down the fastest drivatar enough to have the lower PI drivatars also backed up behind it, but 4 of the team still came in 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th, so that was that.

Did it again going in with a stock '99 Elise and easily won that one, including winning the 2nd race outright.

Apparently only one of our team got the memo regarding Corvettes



The entire opposing team, without being in the same club, showed up in either '67s or '70s. Just found it peculiar.

Considering the amount of tuned cars in your games, it is extra strange as neither are great choices to upgrade/tune for the games, P.I. is already restrictive as they both start in B class.

This is yet another (~strange) version of players been very unimaginative with choice.(a total of 36 eligible choices, inducing all DLC/exclusives)

The car I used, Firebird, (for what the numbers matter) has 6 in speed, and 5 in accel (vs 6.3/5.6, 5.8/5.6 respectively) before tuning, and it starts pre-upgrade in D class! Not saying it is the best choice, but certainly has more options on the table from word go.

I suspect that they joined in a convoy, despite not being in the same club and decided that they’d all use Corvettes. Feels too random otherwise.

My opinion any new car added could have been better than the Corvette. It's a very overrated car handles like a caddy and ford has them beat with the GT.

You get it immediately if you win the championship on highly skilled or higher difficulty.

Yeah.. good point, did not occur to me as a reason, but makes a lot of sense.
