    Neither AF prize car has been released yet

    Generally, Hutch will do a much sought-after prize car if an update is about to drop. I actually think they were meant to do an update just after the Jesko Absolut event but it never panned out so they are probably going to do another sought-after prize this time as well.

    Speaking of the prized car, did one of the two AF prized car was available to win ?

    None of the Fords have been up for grabs yet, I think the dodge might have been.

    I’ll post this here from a few hours ago. Seems like they might try something different this week or add a twist to it. He also uses the word “these”- maybe more than 1?

    Where he said "these" he later confirmed to mean "this" so singular, also confirmed a new car rather than rerun.

    Citroen GT, achievable by completing the GT series, 3 qualifiers each awarding tokens, then challenges instead of a tri-series final

    Citroen GT (2008) Tri-Series

    For the next two weeks, the Tri Series is instead the GT Series, named for its grand prize, the Citroen GT (2008)! Read more:

    Events

    There will be three 72-hour Qualifier events:

    Event 1: Thursday - Sunday (27 May - 30 May)

    Event 2: Sunday - Wednesday (30 May - 2 June)

    Event 3: Wednesday - Saturday (2 June - 5 June)

    Each of the three Qualifier events will award cars, packs, and GT Tokens. While criteria for events all vary, the main car theme of the GT Series is German 2010-2014 non-prize cars.

    Challenges

    There will be three challenges running from Wednesday morning (2 June) to Monday morning (7 June).

    - Regardless of your event performance, you will still gain access to the GT Open, a lower-level challenge to pick up some prizes with your hand.

    - Win a single GT Token to gain access to the GT Finals challenge to give you the opportunity to win the Citroen GT (2008).

    - Win all three GT Tokens to be able to complete the Triple Crown challenge, an additional bonus challenge, easier to beat than the GT Finals, but requires more success in the Qualifier events, for additional great rewards.

    Please note that tokens are not consumed by any challenge.

    Rewards

    GT Open (0 keys needed) – Prizes include a Standard and Premium pack and a great collectable Super Rare

    GT Finals (1 token needed) – Prizes include a Carbon Fiber pack and the Legendary prize car, the Citroen GT (2008).

    GT Triple Crown (3 tokens needed) – Earn all three tokens to compete in this challenge.

    So because of this challenge structure, I guess keen players can get their hands on the Citroën GT early and already start testing it out. But I made one of these anyway:



    In the world of Top Drives, this car is a bit of an outlier in the French section with no comparable RWD/Per cars close to RQ86. Unfortunately it may have to face the Renault Sport Megane Trophy, and while it wins in most situations stock vs. stock, the GT will need a lot of upgrades to beat the Trophy maxed in the dry.

    Putting the GT beside other RQ86 RWD/Per contenders, you can see it's that slightly dangerous thing in Top Drives: a bit of an all-rounder. Faster on straighter tracks than the Viper ACR or Zonda F, faster on twisty tracks than the GT90 or, kind of obviously, the Dodge Demon.

    Still, with an MRA of 107 you can find some wins on high speed or rolling-start tracks, and give yourself some additional options when constructing a French hand.

    When it comes to French cars anything that loses less badly to a bugatti is welcome.

    Looks like it may beat the EB110s on long drags

    So, we have a challenge like the Citroen GT or a Regular tri-series ?

    :)

    And which car ! I am a little bit week on the OFF cars :P

    I would assume normal tri-series until we hear any different. The Citroen GT challenge felt a bit like a one-off experiment to me, and we never heard if it was successful.

    My money is on something from European Revolution, like the Donkevoort D8 GTO-40, the Peugeot 205 T16 Pikes Peak or the Rimac C_Two.

    So how much money or time and rng shenanigans makes it so that someone can win a high end prize car? Does hutch base it off of a random track and car set or if a certain amount of certain cars obtained and those cars are definitely(idk if the buddy system is still going on for those events) are gonna win, since it's kinda hard to plan the day of or 3 days unless you manage to buy all the event carbons and get lucky, but now have to find a way to upgrade it to max. It would be nice to actually let the players vote for the cars and requirements, so no one can blame hutch for the decisions.

    If you vote for requirements, some people with a furai will vote for something close ... And discover the one with 5 maxed Furai.

    For having a Prized Cat either you become a whale, either you become lucky with the requirements and buy the 15 carbons :smile:

    It's kind of make sense people putting 1000€ win the car more than someone putting 0.

    How should the dev be paid in a free to play game ?


    EDIT:205 would be a rerun ! 206 nice !

    If this is an big American Frontier, then update is soon.

    Nice idea, but....

    If we were all given a choice of requirements to vote for, the winner would be the one that most players already have. (no one votes for what they do not have). The problem would be that you would then have many many duplicate hands (see Slushy Suzi event) and it would be a boring event, or the older players would have the advantage and all the newer players would not be happy.

    Also less packs would be sold and that is why these events exist (let's not fool ourselves). 

    As for upgrading in 3 days. Hutch know that some people will spend gold to speed these up. They will not stop this and make it easier. Why would they?

    Hutch know exactly who has which car. They can run analysis on the player database and work out which requirements the fewest number of players have, and therefore the requirements which lead to most packs being purchased. This is why we see the ridiculously niche events for the high end prize cars. This is deliberate. The introduction of the fuses required 3+ etc. is also cynical as it makes people spend more gold or fuse cars they would not normally have used, just to compete, let alone be competitive. 

    You just have to learn to play with what you have and not chase something unobtainable. As that is the road to ruin...

    I was going to say that this surely would not be niche enough for this car, and then I checked and there are 46 non-prize cars that qualify (2 legendaries, 3 epics, 10 ultras) so yes it fits the bill nicely 😀

    If that's the case. See most of you in last or second to last tier 😂
  • Hutch_TimHutch_Tim Posts: 685 admin
    Regarding requirements, some good points made above - people seem to forget that if the criteria are very wide, that gives the biggest advantage to the players who have been playing the longest and/or spent the very most; it also is very likely that buying CFs will only improve your rank very marginally. (See the Daily Event for what happens when criteria are very wide!)

    As always... stay tuned for what the Finals requirements actually turn out to be, you never know if you have the full picture until it starts!

    Anyway, this car is pretty incredible:



    With the highest stock handling of any released car, it can win against almost anything, on any track with a turn. A 0-60 of 2.6s and 100 MRA isn't enough to compete with the very best on the very fastest tracks, but that's the only weak point - other than, obviously, rain.

    On that note, you probably noticed the 908 HDi FAP beats the Zonda Revolución everywhere tested, despite being 1 RQ lower. We saw something similar a while back, and again it's a product of the RQ generation process. While the Peugeot does slightly better than the Pagani on dry asphalt, the lack of TC or ABS means it does a lot worse on the wet and off-road, and although these tracks are given less weight in the RQ for dry specialists, this does still drag the RQ average down just a little.

    Hi everyone. Hope you've had a great weekend! 

     This is a quick message to let you know that the requirements for the Peugeot 908 HDi FAP Tri-Series Finals will be 2000 and 2002, so you can construct a hand from cars of a mixture of both years. We wanted to let you know in advance to avoid any misunderstanding as we are approaching the Finals which will start this Thursday. 

     Good luck!

    wait, just for the understanding, you mean 2000 AND 2002? or 2000-2002? last option would be a wayyy more attractive incentive to buy packs AND also upgrade those legendaries.

    2000 and 2002, not 2000-2002

    The XJR-15 finals were 2001 so I'd guess it's excluding 2001.

    I've got some decent rain cars but not the Phaeton and not much in the way of drag cars so I'm going to be lucky to win the 908.
