Season points reward cars are last season's.

Already getting reports that the "take a photo of the 911" part of the weekly challenge won't complete if you already have taken a photo of that model previously.

Have fun with a horrible trial this early in the game. Took I don’t know 4 attempts. Maybe not do S2 and X until people are used to it. Common sense.

This had to be the glitchiest trial I've ever had in whole Horizon history. Luckily we managed to get it on second try, but come on. AI cars teleporting through walls?

Seriously LOL open class super hyper power trial ... count me out.

Did complete few things and that's about the time I had for today.
Finished dirt racing in reasonably priced car C 600 - Morris Minor 1000 - tune shared under my gamer tag
Also completed A 800 unlimited offroad trailblazer and event lab in DeBerti Ford F-150 - tune also shared under my gamer tag. Will also use it to fail trough PGG.

PS
Daily buy 3 cars ... I don't want preowned cars, eww.

Allowing X class in the Trial is a pretty bewildering thing to do - lots of people with undriveable speed trap machines, and utterly uncatchable AI cars to match them.

Still at work

How does the Trial work this week? Looks like Class C to S2 or X with upgrades.
Is it just pick an X Class and pray?

That's really going to help newer players, honestly Forza.... just when I start to doubt that you don't actually want to make this franchise but are too polite to just say it.

Guess what, the trial doesn't work either

Somehow the number of crowns jumped from 4 to 6 and then all of them disappeared.

In survival it kept saying that I'm the last surviver eventhough there was four of us.

Last week it was buy a car from the auction house. This week it's buy 3 cars, I assume from anywhere but why is this a thing. Some people might want to hold on to their credits. Others, like me, rarely buy cars. I had everything in fh4 and bought maybe 20 cars throughout the life of the game. I won everything else and only buy when absolutely necessary.

This is becoming more aggravating by the day but I paid for the game so I feel like I need to stick it out. Going to grab some tylenol.

They've got Fable now so they think they're beyond this? I don't know what's going on but it's getting worse every day.

The stadium is a horrible arena and one section of the thing in the middle is bugged, your car sinks into it and you lose almost all your speed.

Also unsure whether it was an exploit, bug or plain cheat but for the 2nd week in a row somebody got out of the arena and sat there during Infected.

Edit: Check out my Xbox Live profile for a truly bizarre glitch in the trial, I would love to see someone at PG explain that.

I, I really thought, that the move to the DRY season would mean that the seasonal championships would be beyond the “race a sports car in the rain and or mud” stage of things. Go into the high rollers event, and in the first race, the roads are covered in water.
The roads are covered in water, in the dry season. Is it dry in that we don’t have to go racing through rivers anymore?

An open Trial is a TERRIBLE idea. People join with an X class car, leave right away because they can't control it, leaving the rest of us to compete with X class drivatars.

“The Real Deal” seasonal doesn’t give credit. Did it first figuring class C, right?
Won all 3 races. Settings correct. Not particularly difficult.
Done. No Huayra, no CR. WTH
Weekly chores now weekly ex wife dinner date
And a super WS for seasonal? But none for class specific car specific stuff?
EDIT:
Re ran it. Same everything. 1-1-2, leasing let him pass at FL
Registered as complete on series board.
Just like last week, do series 1-4x, maybe registers maybe not.

ManteoMax, the Italdesign Zerouno is "Exclusive", not "Hard to Find". Difference:

Exclusive: Only available in Playlist and, in FH4, Backstage
Hard to Find: Available in Wheelspins and Playlist

Other than that the summary is complete as usual.

Remember that, originally, back in FH4, they wanted us to do 100% for the second prize and only backed off when GTPlanet did an article on it. Seems in FH5 they're testing the waters and seeing how much they can push the playerbase.

This Trial is atrocious. Countless players with X-Class cars flying off the road in the first turn creating X-Class AI that isn't catchable with an S2 998 build.
Playlist responsible person at PG seems to have zero knowledge about the game or want to see us suffer.

I don't know if Im complain about the trial-definition or about the players...

To the creator of this event:
You know what class 99.9% of all players use to beat the unbeatable? Short answer: X-Class and S2
You know if they are able to beat the unbeatable in X and S2? Short answer: NO!

To the players:
In open class races please use a class that fit your skill...

So, I always took C, B or A class and I always got all cars in my class overtaken... and got my points in all that 18 races I had to do... until I had a team where enough people were able to do the same like me...

And this was not funny at all,
in some races I was faster with a C class then others in my team with S2 or X... they overtook me and I passed them right at the next corner ... period

...

Trial is completely stupid this week. Open class, so when the idiots show up in X class and then quit because they can't drive them leaves everyone else facing X class AI. Devs certainly didn't think this one through to well. Just gonna skip this week's events completely.
