I can assure you that this will change nothing on a marketing side.
By saying in advance what will come with the first DLC you will have a lot of internet links and newspaper reviews etc...
It's a good plan, you can believe me.

The whole community will appreciate. You will become like god for them, they will build temples for you and do sacrifices.
They will throw rose petals on your path.

id rather not know. i know im gonna get it when it drops and i don't want to know what is and wait eagerly. i still haven't touched most of the cars and tracks already in the game. i have plenty to hold me over for years, and i know it won't take THAT long for dlc.

That to me sounds like a very negative attitude to have being head of studio. Why is your back up all the time?. You as a head of studio should be taking on board feedback and going back to your team testing problems out what people are experiencing. Yeah the posts that are negative ignore but your ignorance towards some people on this forum are ridiculous coming from someone in your posistion. Check out google and see what customer reviews on this game. Most not all are poor and the reviews on this forum are not to say very least are crap. There are videos on youtube even compelling this evidence. All your investors "wmd" members think different but thats another story isnt it mate......

With all due respect,


I have not been one to moan in this forum, tried to help problems and loaded tune setups etc...
Never replied to threads and posts r.e problems (even though i experience them.)

My evening tonight has the game loaded, im sat infront of my simulator with the intro rolling, but here i am sat reading the forum waiting for fixes and details of the next patch which never comes....... I FEEL WORN OUT...... Been like this for 3 days now........

This game could be GREAT. i mean it, it has potential. Xbox has seen nothing like a sim before.......

Just needs the devs/super moderators to say "YES i agree with this" or here is what has been included in patch 1.4 for Xbox One.....

Help to pacify the community.
Give us something to work with(Patch notes/acknowledgment) ALL issues we report are looked into.....
Then we will back off knowing things are moving forward.

In respect to WMD members, many play PC therfore cannot help r.e Xbox One.
Only to help report known issues.......


Still left in limbo.

everyone needs to calm down and stop demanding so many things all at once, i am sure that Ian and the team have a list of items to work on in order of importance. in my opinion dlc is last on my mind right now, i am sure the devs are working on minimizing the bugs first to make everyone happy. this all takes time and is not done in a split second. Patience people, Patience!!!! theres no point in commenting on future DLC when everyone is still whining and moaning about how the game is supposedly "broken". Ian can answer whatever he wishes to answer because right now taking care of the game issues that are out there is more important than anything else right now. atleast thats my opinion, I'm playing it on PC so i treally don't have any issues but i am aware that there were many issues with XBONE and the george foreman grill 4. let them optimize first so we can enjoy the dlc that will eventually come properly.

On a more serious note: what type of reply do you expect after your post? A very positive attitude? It's like entering into a restaurant shouting about their c*ap cuisine and then pretend to be served like the Queen! :)

And about what our customers thinks about our game... I can assure you that we are very proud of our products due to the positive acceptance of the final users, sometime we have to read about people like you (that I personally thank, despite your opinion, because you have spent your money on our game), but that's part of the business, we do not pretend to have 100% satisfied customers, we are happy already with the 99%.

your customer skills at sms is outrageous. Do you see any other game developer team come here having this kind of attitude. Who said its crap? Your quote isnt plausible.

I want to be treated on this forum like i would want everyone else too and thats a happy customer... sadly not by reviews by your customers. The typical fanboy cant argue this due to the facts i know and information i contain which has been paid off and removed.....

Rest assured the games in capable hands, isn't it Mr Bell.
Running a game this complex on a new platform is no way easy. I've seen improvements in stability and extras added on my ps4 and we haven't had a major update yet.
So please be patient, the core of the game is there, it just needs fettling. Which takes time. Have a look in the suggestion threads to see what others are doing. Oh I'm telling people what to do again.......

Some people need to learn how to communicate properly. You act like a dick your going to get a dick response or no response at all. And also they need to realise that games are complex programs and bugs takes time to fix. This expecting a bug to be FIXED RIGHT NOW is ridiculous expectation. The bugs have been reported and are being worked on.

A list of bugs isn't not going to be done in a day. why do you think game developers have months and months of QA testing by external teams. As games get more and more complex they become alot harder to fix.

your customer skills at sms is outrageous.

If we wouldn't care about our customers, you would read this reply, posted at this hour, from my home... and certainly you wouldn't see the Ian to spend his time with you. We are here because we love what we do, and we care about our customers.
Please be mature, and try to establish a mature conversation, or we'll end up anywhere.
