I stopped playing 2 months ago as I got impatient with how broken it was. Nice to see that next to no progress has been made since!

What is seriously ruining multiplayer though is not being able to see a list of sessions, or just a search function to chose a minimum number of players. You never really get a full lobby and people constantly leave/join when its not what they want.

I asked Ian Bell months ago if this would be sorted and he said yes, now it isnt looking likely and with a certain other game just around the corner its not looking good for project cars.

They say yes but it's not been released to the masses yet.

Going off there previous testing and patches i think it's a tad premature to say yes when not mass tested

Patch 3.0 will be here in (probably) 1-3 weeks and it should bring some fixes. The patch notes sound interesting but there will probably be some bugs coming along. I'm hoping it won't be such a disappointment as 2.0.

Don't hold your breath but one can hope.

You mean that the patch will land in 1-3 weeks? I know it's a bit optimistic but I like to look at things positive. Saying the patch 3.0 will be here in 1-3 months (which is probably more realistic) will scare people away.

"I'd rather be hurt by the truth than comforted by a lie."

But I meant in terms of a disappointment. Don't hold your breath that it will be amazing and fix everything.

46 spent 3 mnths on. I feel like crying. I'm not well payed and i feel like i've been took for a complete c*#t, I ventured online recently and the game pauses out (grid on the 360 managed smoothness) causing me to invalidate lap times consistently. Everything else has already been said i'm sure. I've seen some responses by the now infamous Ian Bell which were like...Wow, he's even got videos on youtube dedicated to him. I mean, I really gave this game time but I concede, this game is not made for controllers and im not about to spend more than I paid for my X1 for a wheel, Rain issues blah blah sound blah lobby searching blah blah. just looked at patch notes, amazing how much is being fixed....again and they're crowdfunding for PC2? absolute urine removal. Maybe it's because i'm an older gamer is why i'm so ahem ticked off but i'm really hating this 'let's produce 3/4 of a game which looks beautiful for the adverts but its really a beta' culture. Shedloads of money made but reputations are starting to be left in tatters. Some others might say oh be patient but as i said im not well payed or a spoilt child, every penny counts and now all I can get back is 13. feeling sorry for the future suckers.

Like you I'm an older gamer and like you I'm sick of being a beta tester, but unless people speak up and stop buying into this pre ordering lark I can't see it changing.

I'm a 26 year old gamer and agree with both of you.

Is it just me or is there a lot less comments coming from the devs on the forum recently.... spooky eh?

They probably shy away from the forums a bit because people try to rip their heads off.

Again, as it has already been stated: It is holiday time and also the remaining pcars devs are working on patch 4.0.

So just give it a week or two and I think we will then see them around more often again.

And just for ze record: I would like to see more activity by the devs too, like it was when the forum launched.

Yeah, which is understandable but as Invincible said it is also holiday season.

*this game is not made for controllers and im not about to spend more than I paid for my X1 for a wheel .

I can't understand why you think this. It's perfect for the controller. I race with a couple of extremely fast people (which have steering wheels) and I'm on a controller, I keep up with the pace if not faster around some circuits. This whole idea of the game being made for wheels is a silly excuse. Just put more time into the game. I've ran lot of top ten lap times using a controller and once the leaderboards get patched I'm going to do even better.

It was far from good with the controller when it first released but the controls are a lot better. 125cc Karts still don't handle right to me.

It was far from right I'm a wheel aswell from my knowledge, I just don't think people have sussed iy out yet.

It was unplayable with a controller. Massive improvement now.

Just the karts?

And the Mark 1 Escort but that's easily fixed with some tuning. Very tail happy. 125cc Karts are very sluggish imo.

I was actually decent with my times, and yes the controller was improved slightly in my opinion, though I personally wouldnt say massively. My gripes were about a lot more than the controller and until you feel the difference with a wheel you wouldnt really know but, hey if youre happy with the game, thats good, but for me I dont expect to buy a game and then have to seek so much support on forums and trying to get excited four months later waiting for a patch that may or may not fix things or even create new problems(a la GTA V 360). I saw a thread on here a while back where a blogger actually got his money back off one of the makers and thats exactly how more people shouldve reacted. Remember, while youre all waiting for patch whatever, the makers have made enough money to be driving that Mclaren and it pisses me off that sales were made before the game was made, sorry, still is being made. Its the simple stuff which was not included and has been talked about enough but I must say that god damn digital choppy glitched sound around some of the corners wound me up though it wasnt the worst glitch on there...............WE WANT GRID 4!!!
