ESL ForzaRC Recreational Series Sign Up


REGISTER A FREE ESL ACCOUNT
If you already have an ESL account, Log In instead of registering, but make sure your profile has your birthdate and country.
  • Go to the main Forza Racing Championship page at ESL Gaming and click Register. You will need to enter an email address (this is where earned DLC prize codes will be sent) and a nickname.
  • Once you have created your account you will also need to Edit your profile and add your birthdate and country for eligibility.

SIGN UP FOR THE RECREATIONAL SERIES
  • If you're on your profile page, click the "Choose your Game" tab and "Forza" from the list to go to the ForzaRC main page, and then click the Recreational Series link.
  • Sign Up is open until Thursday November 24 at 11am Pacific. You only need to sign in once to be eligible for any/all of the season's prize periods.
  • On the right side of the page, "Sign up" will be locked until you click the "To Do: Gamer ID" and enter your XBL gamertag. Then click the Sign Up button.

DRIVE
  • Open the main menu from freeroam and select the Rivals menu and Monthly Rivals tile. Find the event named "ForzaRC Week #" event and set your best lap time. You can improve your time until the event closes at 8am Pacific on its end date. The top 25 of the Global leaderboard for each event will win physical prizes; fast laps that are Flagged (due to leaving the track, collision with objects, or using Rewind) are ranked on the bottom of the leaderboard and won't rank in the top 25. Any laptime on the leaderboard, clean or flagged, will earn the gift car for that event.

Do you need to signup to get the gift cars? I just want the cars, nothing else, and i really don't want to signup somewhere else to get anything in game...

Max, I noticed that all the weeks of Rivals are available. Can we run them ahead of time? I will be on vacation for 10 days starting next Friday and don't want to miss out on the car.

  • So, registering for the Recreation League would allow me to win these? Ok. Like Verruckt, I'd rather just have the cars. Don't need to register for this one.

    @TransAmConnor well, the only thing they'd send you a code for would be the Car Pass. They can't exactly send you a code for a wheel after all.

    Fair enough, I saw that line and commented before reading the rest of it. The whole situation was a fiasco though.

    Season 2 after the season 1 debacle !! All the prizes have not been honored for Season 1 seems as though all prizes should have been honored as said before having season 2. So now the excuse will be it's too late to honor the prizes for season 1 ? and then how many prizes won't be honored for this championship ?? Someone really needs to make sure that all prizes are honored period. Not impressed with how these championships have been run and the lack of due diligence to honor the prizes either.

    I have just set a time, not a winner I know but it will get me the Ford GT HE, but after checking where the other Rivals will be run I discovered that there is no set place for Week 3 (only the car, time of day and conditions).
    What have I missed?
    Help please.

    Gift cars are typically distributed in bulk after an event has finished, so look for it next week in your Message Center / Gifts tab.

    Why on earth is the first event so short compared to the rest of them? Makes no sense as to why they didn't start it on the Monday.

    Makes me think this one may be just as much of a *insert word of choice here* as last time, with not much thought having gone into it.

    That link and the information does me no good. I contacted ESL over a month ago and they said it was turn 10/ microsoft's responsibility to provide me with the codes and closed my ticket. Less than a week later I saw your post and recontacted ESL they apologized reopened the ticket and have sent me 3 different codes that were redeemed more than a month before it was even sent to me verified by microsoft I sent all this information to ESL and I have had no reply at all for more than 3 weeks now.

    This is turn 10's game and their Championship they need to ensure people get their prizes not runaround in circle's getting nowhere this is completely unsatisfactory. A complete debacle on their part for not providing a clear means or avenues to resolve issues and I am not alone with this I race in several leagues and nearly half the people are in the same boat as I am. I employ turn 10 to fix this A.S.A.P. and this should have been done before they run another Championship otherwise it will be the same shenanigan's all over again.

    Try contacting the guy on Twitter, I went down that route and had it resolved in around 12 hours from start to finish. One of my codes came up as already being redeemed, so I sent him another message, and that was sorted in under 10 minutes.

    Still though, leaves a bad taste overall, for both companies. And we all know how important first impressions for things are.

    If I drive Rivals in FM6 I get for example the 1994 Nissan Silvia in FM6 for example?
    But this car is officaly not in the game. Or did I get it for FH3?

    I understand that if I drive in both rivals in FM6 and FH3 I get the car in both games, right?

    And what about the Forza HE cars. Such these cars aren't in Forza 6???

    I guess I will ask again. Max, can we set a time in a weekly event early or does it have to be in that week? I am going on vacation and will be away for 10 days but still want to set a time in ALL 7 weeks contests, if possible.

    I'm kinda confused about the requirements to earn the participation cars from the Recreation Series Rivals Events in FH3, and was wondering if you could help me out.

    Basically, I'm unsure if an active Xbox Live Gold subscription is needed in order to be eligible for the gift cars. A lot of it stems down from the fact there's some inconsistency in the messaging of the Recreation Series requirement: the Recreation Series Rules state the prizes will only be awarded to players with an ESL Play account and an active XBL Gold sub, but the 'How to Register, Sign Up, Participate and win Prizes in ForzaRC S2 for Forza Horizon 3' thread then goes on to say registration isn't required in order to be eligible for the participation prizes.

    The fact a lot of FH3 players without an XBL Gold account didn't receive the Nissan Silvia Forzathon prize car upon successfully completing that drift event thing is also another reason why I'm posting this query. As I don't have much spare time and (as a result) can't really justify paying for an Xbox Live Gold subscription, I don't really want to waste my time trying to earn a gift car I'm not eligible for.

    Apologies if this a bit of a long winded post, and I'd be very appreciative if anyone could help me out with this.

    No, this thread is just for FH3; I'll create a separate thread for FM6, which is cash-prizes only.

    I don't see the rest of the events available, just the current one, so I don't think you'll be able to set times before the week's event starts.

    (thread merged)
    Registration at ESL vs. XBL are two different things. Registration is required to earn the physical prizes (Playseat, wheel, DLC, swag), but not for the gift cars. Console players will still need Gold membership to receive the cars. PC players shouldn't need Gold because they don't need it to access FH3 online services, but I don't know all the backend issues with players who missed out on gifts.

    Just to clarify:

    Say someone gets 1st place. Will they only recieve the chair, or will the Steering wheel, car pass, and swag item?

    Must be me, but it would be strange to not win a wheel with a chair.
