    Anyone managed to pass round 19? How is that Renault managing that Test Bowl on slicks? What specific Renault do we need to beat it? I can't beat it and I can't make up enough points elsewhere to offset the loss.

    I did it with the black Megane 969 (on the drag - lost by 50), three DeZirs (one 969, two 699), and a 969 F1 Twizy on the karting circuit.

    Mine was below. I lost the TB but won others enough. Score was 311-50 or similar.

    Thanks mate. Not sure why I never considered the Twizy F1. I don't have a third Dezir but I can probably substitute that for something else when I try again.

    Mine was similar. Used these to get through all 5 on this set.

    On one of the last rounds (22?) there is the RS01 on 0-100. Can someone grab it's 0-60 and 0-100 so we can see what the MRA is like. I missed it.

    I like people calling out for a tougher challenge, and tend to agree with it too. That RS200 one back in the day forced me to put a fuse in my 675LT, but I never regretted it.

    This week's challenge has a little bit of difficulty to it, which is nice. More generally I'm looking into how the next challenge series can offer regular harder challenges, without making it almost impossible to "complete" the series.

    I remember the time, were tim said, that they are trying new ways of rewarding in the weekly challenge. That they would evaluate the data and listen to feedback about the new prizes and structure of the weekly event. But after changing it, we never got any information again. It just continued to be only ceramic packs as the big prize.

    The only feedback i have gathered (from this forum) was negative. The majority doesnt want the ceramic pack. So my question ist, to which feedback/Data do you listen to keep going this way? @Hutch_Tim


    Yep, fair question. One of the most important measures is how many people enter the challenge. That's now up by about 25%-33%. Offering a specific car at the end also seemed to leave just about nobody happy - every week was one of:

    - Any C: useless
    - B with an easy challenge: pointless, now everyone has it
    - B with a hard challenge: only people who win it don't need it

    The whole prize board rebalance is obviously contentious for Events, but I think at least in the case of the Challenge it's unambiguously better. It was always inefficient and weird to farm the challenge. Putting way more cash into the zone-end prizes seems a lot more sensible.

    Instead of picking an easy/medium/hard challenge, it could be implemented by people signing up to more and more restrictions which give the increased prizes.

    Cool, thanks.

    So 3.2/(6.3-3.2)= 103 MRA... Nice

    I'm feeling decidedly weird and inefficient this evening...



    First two lose but ends up 319-100
  • MoogMoog Posts: 509 ✭✭✭✭
    I found it a little odd that in round 22 I faced 3 common and 2 uncommon opponents...
  • Blue2moroBlue2moro Posts: 2,209 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Forgot to post my farming hand, soz.
    1st race loses by 50, everything else wins by 50.

    Thanks for not responding to my point about whether low RQ cars should be useful in challenges again. Only furthers the idea that low RQ cars in this game are now more useless than ever.

    Cool, thanks.

    So 3.2/(6.3-3.2)= 103 MRA... Nice
    It has some upgrades to it, so 103 might not be entirely accurate. It's hella fast though, beat my 699 Megane by 0.1 I believe.

    MRA stays relatively the same no matter the upgrade

    So every challenge gonna have same prizes now? 
  • kaje73kaje73 Posts: 336 ✭✭✭


    Round 3 is a tough one. 
  • OzzmanOzzman Posts: 1,827 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Even the weekly challange feels totally random now. I mean what was that third round with all those VW Transporters?

    Maybe someone has a sense of humor
