They had three weeks of competitions with three different cars and you had to make the top 12 eventually and then the top four out of each week after the three races that transfer you to the finals. first week Rivals was the 2005 Mustang second was the EcoBoost 200 third was the ford GT LeMans but the finals was in the Ford Focus RS does that make any sense the third round should have been in the Ford Focus rs since the finals race was in the Ford Focus RS . just like the rest of the rival competitions you had to drive that car to try to qualify in the top four to make it to the finals it doesn't make no sense the third round really they should have had a fourth round with the Ford Focus RS what took the third round out and replaced it with the Ford Focus RS it doesn't make no sense how they ran that part of the competition. I have been playing video games for a year-and-a-half and I've only played Forza I haven't got to play video games in eight years due to the six surgeries on my right arm and hand and let me know what you think about this don't get me wrong I love the whole Forza competition it was fun but at the end they should have let us Racing Rivals with the Ford Focus RS hi be several people that made the finals in that car and they should have gave people that haven't been playing 10 years a shot and they failed on that just like this said anybody can win prizes even if they turned only one lap or you can win prizes if you've been playing it for 10 years this suited the people that has been playing for 10 years I would have been one of those people that's been playing for 10 years if I didn't have the injuries I have this competition shooting the people that are on Big Race teams don't feel like Forza failed the people that are not on Big Race teams to win prizes I don't know tell me what you think leave a comment down there maybe I'm wrong maybe I'm just bitter because I be half the people that was in the finals on the track they were on with the Ford Focus which I am butt the way they did that they should have let us try the Ford Focus and try to get into the finals that's my opinion let me know what yours is and keep racing Jason's out

The reason they did it would likely be because it's a DLC car, whereas pretty much everyone has the GTLM car.

Now I must be honest, it was really hard reading that and I'm pleased to have got through to the other side.

I don't understand why you think it 'doesn't make sense'. It made perfect sense to have the Focus RS as the car for the finals as that was the prize for the winner. Also as TransAmConnor points out, it is a DLC car so it would have limited the amount of people who could have entered.

Ultimately, the organisers decide the cars and the drivers use those cars with no exceptions. It was absolutely fine and made 100% logical sense to me.

I just have to say, it really is up to the organizers how they do it and I am sorry for your injuries, but there really isn't a way to handicap those individuals.

If anything, it should just take into account your "level of racing" per the time you put into Forza - but I doubt that would ever happen. For now, just race, have fun - it is just a video game!

That was hard to read and I'm still not sure exactly what was said but it seemed that you're upset because there wasn't a qualifier that involved the focus? The reason being is I'm assuming your skill set favors lower classes.

Sorry to say, but you still didn't have a chance. If the focus was in a qualifier you would still have to place top 128 (actually it's about top 175 after elimination of ineligible players) in the rival event. Then you would have to win enough in the 1v1 races to place top 16. Then of the top 16 you would have to earn enough points to be top 4.

Yea, I'm sorry, but you wouldn't be able to do that. The same people plus or minus a few players would have made top 16. I'm a low class specialist and you have no shot against me. Most players don't, especially when I try. However in the 1v1 there was no chance of me getting top 16. Those guys are just that good. My best case scenario would be in the losers bracket race that determine the last 8 to make top 16.

I've only been playing competitively for 5 years. One of the top guys that made it to the Grand finale and nearly won the thing was a teen who hasn't been playing as long as me.

Age, years of experience, and team affiliation didnt matter in this tournament. All that was needed was skill which you flat out don't have enough of. You're no way near as good as the 12 who made it to the Grand finale. Can you run a #1 with relative ease on any forza overall leaderboard? If the answer is no, then you got work to do.
