#FORZAMONTHLY LIVESTREAM NOVEMBER 5
  • "Welcome to November! If it’s the beginning of the month we must be close to another edition of “Forza Monthly.” Our latest episode of our monthly magazine show all about the world of Forza is coming to you on Monday, November 5, beginning at 1 p.m. Pacific. We’ll have guests from all over the world of Forza, and we’ll be diving deep into the November update for Forza Motorsport 7, as well as giving you a sneak peek at Season 3 in Forza Horizon 4 with Playground Games, and a look back at the ForzaRC 2018 season with some special guests. It’s going to be a fantastic show so be sure you’re tuned in to our Mixer and Twitch channels to watch it live!"


FORZA @ SEMA 2018
  • "You may have seen our livestream from the SEMA show this week, hosted by Johniwanna and Co Pilot along with our friends at Hoonigan. Here’s John’s report from the show" (Hert, Danger Dan, Tanner Foust, Vaughn Gittin Jr., Chelsea DeNofa, Ken Block, Big Daddy Braddy, ChairSlayer, Magnus Walker)
  • Livestream replay: https://youtu.be/tYhK7dTaT24
  • "Watch Monday’s edition of “Forza Monthly” to see more from this epic trip to SEMA!"


HOT WHEELS COMING TO FM7
  • "a brand-new pack of seven Hot Wheels cars – including three new models – are coming for free to all players in Forza 7 with the November update. Take a look: trailer"


PRIZE CRATES AND UPDATED LOYALTY REWARDS
  • "As part of our November update for Forza Motorsport 7, we are removing Prize Crates from the game. Players will still be able to access content previously included in Prize Crates, such as Mod cards, Driver Gear, and badges, via our new Race Shop system, which you’ll be able to see in action on our November edition of “Forza Monthly.”"
  • "The removal of Prize Crates from Forza 7 means that we are making a necessary change to our Forza Loyalty Rewards program. Previously, new players earned prize crates depending on their Forza Rewards Tier. After the November update, new Forza Motorsport 7 players will earn Mod cards per Tier level. Here’s a look at what cards players will earn per Tier level: (see chart)"
  • "As always, all Tier rewards are cumulative. For example, a Tier 10 player would earn the three Tier 10 Mod cards (Grid Improvement, Payday, and Top Five), plus all of the cards in the lower Tiers. Note that these Mod rewards are only available to new Forza 7 players; those who have already received their Loyalty Rewards for Forza Motorsport 7 will not receive these additional Mod cards."


#FORZAFRIDAY LIVESTREAM
  • "We’ve made some upgrades to the Forza streaming studio this week, including new cameras, new lights, and a new streaming PC to boot. While we’re still fine-tuning the setup, I’m excited about the next step in making our weekly Forza streams that much better for you. With that in mind, come check out today’s edition of #ForzaFriday, where we’ll be talking about all the latest news in the world of Forza, playing Forza Horizon 4 and Forza Motorsport 7, and getting ready for our huge November edition of “Forza Monthly.” The fun starts at 3 p.m. Pacific on Twitch and Mixer – see you then!"

#FORZAMONTHLY NOVEMBER RECAP
  • "We kicked off the first week of November with our biggest episode of “Forza Monthly” yet. If you haven’t seen our monthly show about all things Forza, then this week’s episode is a great entry point for you. Not only did we dive deep on the details for the November update for Forza Motorsport 7 – including the latest look at our highly anticipated Forza Race Regulations feature – we also welcomed our first guest from Playground Games . . . We also spent some time hanging with Alie Tacq and 2018 ForzaRC champion Aurélien Mallet, aka G2 Laige. If you’ve wondered what the 2018 champ is doing with his ForzaRC winnings, or if you want to know who Laige thinks is the next up-and-coming driver in the ForzaRC, don’t miss this interview. "
  • Replay: https://youtu.be/zRkRpv2hCfs


NOVEMBER CONTENT UPDATES
  • "On Tuesday, we launched the latest update for Forza Motorsport 7. This update includes some important and fundamental changes to Forza 7. First of all, the prize crates system has been removed from the game. In its place, we’ve introduced the new Race Shop feature. In Race Shop, players can pick and choose the Race Mods, Driver Gear, and badges they want from a rotating stock of inventory that refreshes every six minutes. You can access the Race Shop from multiple points within the game, including the main menu and from the race lobbies as you wait for the next race to begin."
  • "Equally as important is the new collision improvements in the game. In addition to updating our netcode to better handle car-to-car contact in high-latency situations, the Turn 10 team has made some fundamental changes to how cars behave in contact. the team has improved energy dissipation between bodies and also introduced a new Collision Assist setting in single-player or in multiplayer. For more on Collision Assist, check out the story on our November update."
  • "After the November update was released, we became aware of an issue where some players would incur 100% damage to their car after hitting a curb on some tracks while using Simulation damage settings. The team has been working to get a fix launched for this bug ASAP; look for more information on the release for fix by following our official Forza Support Twitter handle. Thanks to you all for your patience while we tracked this one down."
  • "November’s update also brought in eight new cars to Forza 7 players available for free to all players. In addition to the November Spotlight car – the 1973 Porsche #6 Penske Sunoco 917/30 Can-Am Spyder – we added seven new Hot Wheels cars that celebrate this year’s 50th anniversary of the legendary toy maker. From Hot Wheels classics like the Twin Mill and the Bone Shaker to the 1963 Hot Wheels Volkswagen Beetle 50th Anniversary Edition, there’s something for any Hot Wheels fan to love. Also, be on the lookout for new Hot Wheels Driver Gear suits – including five decade-specific suits you can win for completing events in FM7. See our November update announcement for the details on how you can win each suit."


SPOTLIGHT RIVALS
  • "Want to get a feel for the November Spotlight car and win something cool in the process? Hit up the November Spotlight Rivals event – you can find it in the “Featured Events” channel in Rivals mode. Attack Lime Rock in the Porsche #6 Sunoco 917/30 Can-Am Spyder and you’ll get a feel for this epic race car that dominated Can-Am in its day. Everyone who sets a time in the race will also win a 1987 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am GTA Forza Edition, which will be delivered to players once the event closes at the end of the month."


NOVEMBER BOUNTY HUNTER EVENT REWARDS - discussion thread
  • "Nine targets. That’s how many Turn 10 players Forza Motorsport 7 players will be up against this month. Our latest Bounty Hunter is our biggest yet, with participants from all corners of Turn 10. Your challenge? The 2016 Dodge Viper ACR on Watkins Glen Short. The prize? How about hundreds of thousands of credits and a sweet collection of cars to add to your FM7 garage. The more Turn 10 folks you beat, the more great stuff you’ll earn. "
  • "We’re kicking off this event on today’s episode of #ForzaFriday. I’ll be joined by some of our Bounty guests as they set their initial times in the event and we’ll be chit-chatting as always about the latest news in the world of Forza."


FORZA @ SEMA 2018
  • "Last week, Johniwanna and Co-Pilot took a trip to Vegas to check out the 2018 SEMA show. In addition to hosting a Forza stream with our friends at Hoonigan, the pair also got a first-class tour of the show, with loads of custom rides on hand to admire, a conversation with Ken Block about the recently unveiled Hoonitruck, and front-seat drift-ready rides with the likes of Vaughn Gittin Jr. and others. Check it out:"
  • Replay: https://youtu.be/TO0p2_do1b4


WEEKLY STREAMING SCHEDULE
  • "If you haven’t noticed, we stream a lot. Like, a lot. In fact, starting next week, we’re going to be streaming every day of the week (and twice on Friday!) Alie Tacq is bringing his Sunday “Forza GT” show to Mondays, to join the rest of the merry band of streamers that populate the Forza channel on Mixer and Twitch. No matter what Forza games you’re into, or how you like to play, we’ve probably got a show for you, so don’t be shy! Pop in and say hello. We don’t bite. Well, *I* don’t bite. I can’t promise anything about Johniwanna."
