    It's a repeat, so won't be those unless Hutch breaks tradition again.
    I dont think there's any set rule tho, and while it usually alternates between new and rerun, it doesn't always.
    And I think they need a big one soon to really drive pack openings.
    True, Hutch probably think they need that. Really what they need is new content and big exciting events to drive excitement in the game, and I'm not talking about new cars. Loads of talk in other TD groups of people feeling extremely bored with the game currently and just token entering events to get rewards.

    With the exception of the odd two "new" events in November, the new-repeat cycle has held consistent for the last year.

    We badly need a new single-player championship (or possibly multiple, so people can choose which one to work on).  In just over a month, it will be a year since the first player finished the Yellowbird campaign.

    I bet the year of the ox events would have compensate, sad they are not ready, but I do.prefer them taking their time to deliver something without bugs

    I agree. I would think it wouldn't require too much to code or set up a new one, but who knows based on how they set up the infrastructure when they made the YB challenge.

    According to the spreadsheet there are 9 Epics and 5 Ultra Rares that have not been given out, which isn't a lot to choose from, especially if there are roughly 2 special tag challenges with each update that have traditionally had Epics and/or Ultras as a prize as you work through the ladder. I think they are running low on prize cars to give away for Championships.

    With that being said, I think they need to come up with a creative way to re-release some of these epic and ultra rare prize cars. Examples that come to mind are the Mazda BBR MX-5 GT270, Subaru 22B, and Alfa & Renault BTCC cars while preventing someone from obtaining 2 of them. I have some thoughts, but I will save them for another day to avoid hijacking this thread.

    They could easily re-use the H3T and Yukon XL, without worrying about dupes.  The H3T is so old, that many people don't have it and the Yukon XL just isn't that useful.  (I only want them for completion purposes.)

    Wonder how the Gumpert Apollo R performs @Hutch_Tim :smile:


  • Hutch_TimHutch_Tim Posts: 684 admin
    As shown in this showcase video, here's the benchmarks for the Gumpert Apollo R:



    A key element is how it does against the Moby Dick, which you are likely to encounter in DE events. As you might have guessed from the worse 0-60 and top speed, it doesn't beat the Moby Dick on the fastest tracks, but it takes the advantage as soon as things get a bit twistier.

    Unfortunately the Apollo R can't find an advantage against the Porsche 962 C stock vs stock - although it's close enough that a single fusion into handling (so 336) will let the Apollo R take the win against a 333 962 C on the Twisty Circuit SS, G-Force, Slalom and Car Park.

    If what someone on facebook said is to be believed then MRA is around 115 from a previous weekly challenge, kills the 787 and the lc2, hope the restrictions are good for me, was saving my cash and gold for the next update but may have to use it for this if I have a half decent starting hand.

    They do it every time. OP prize car just before update to make sure people get into the new update completely broke

    That being said, if the leaks are correct "and sometimes hutch change things before it starts" the restrictions don't suit my garage and there'd be nothing in the packs that I'd want outside of this tri series, so I'm probably not bothering with this one and will continue to save.

    I'm expecting a undesirable rerun like the Cadillac CTS-V or Cien, but with restrictions that allow people to pull really desirable cars in the finals CF.

    Not a bad thought. @TopDrives40778 has me thinking the Porsche 911 GT1 Road Car is a great option for rerun. Also, we have Porsche as mystery manufacturer for the weekend challenge. It was last run in January 2018, so a lot of the current players don't have it in their garage, thus making a lot bigger pool of players competing. It also has Year of the Ox tag which is probably coming soon which might help in the attractiveness of the prize because there are a lot of Porsches out there that are better than this one.

    Was given out 1178 days ago lol.
    Almost 7.5k races and 74% win ratio isn't bad.
    Still gets used in German 90's events.

    Don't know about anyone else but I was expecting the Jesko twins to be given out in challenges similar to the Moby Dick so that most players have them. I have a suspicion that making the Jesko an exclusive car in a tri-series is going to kill the game. It just roots anything in a drag race. Winners will have a trump card in all drag races it's allowed to race in.

    Tim says almost a second against the Chiron Sport, but last time I checked, 21.32 was MORE THAN a second faster than 22.40. Is that more than a 50 point win against the previous drag champ?

    We've always known money is king at Hutch and they'll probably sell PACKS for the Jesko, but this at the expense of the overall game seems a bit suicidal.

    Dont worry there is still the gemera, 905B and normal jesko to revive interest in the game later on...

    I'm hoping this is just a daily "flex" car. I was lucky enough to win the Chiron sport but other than dailies and clubs it rarely sees the light of day in events. Where the jesko is allowable in events though it will be super destructive. Place it on a drag or bowl and it'll be virtually impossible to claw back the damage in the other 4 races. 

    Ps. I have zero chance of winning this car nor am dabbling in packs.

    That's exactly it right? Either the car is useless and people get ripped off because Hutch totally avoids all events where it dominates, or they let it dominate events and the game is ruined. It's lose-lose for the players, and only a temporary money gain for Hutch IMO.

    It really depends on how you see prize cars.

    They are legendary ( at it's very first meaning) or dream cars, most of the time ultra performing. Since only whales or very ancient players can get them, Hutch can surely not allow them in events as it would just allow these players to get some food to fuse them, and widen the gap between two categories of players (even though they love money).

    That's only my opinion and it is worth nothing, but I try to get prize cars only to be able to say "I got it". They look nice in the garage, and it is some self satisfaction. Also I often play campaign just to have fun, I have recently been trying every single level with only one class (only F, E, ..., S) and then it would get some use.

    I never got a prize car from a tri-series since I started playing a year ago, I was close to the urus but lost it because I ran out of gold, this time i may be able to catch it...
  • KcrayKcray Posts: 212 ✭✭✭
    I think next Tri-series will be another re-run. I think the pool of unreleased prize cars in getting smaller and they need to preserve them by for a while because the AF update only had 2 legendary prize cars.

    We can see it is not(a daily brag car), I mean, I don't have it, I am losing by 3xx points on the test bowl in the current event.

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

    And there is still the Peugeot... Either 905, or rally cars
