That's fair enough, given the effort they've gone to with other accessible features. I need to stop nitpicking this stuff and realize games aren't solely for me. 

 

You're entitled as a consumer to nitpick lol. Personally, I don't have too much of an issue with it because there are still enough events in there that are set to certain difficulties. Plus the Eliminator as much as I'm not a fan plus any internal rivals challenges etc.

It's quite clever really, you can reach the hall of fame never winning a race.

 

But if you're saying the likes of the eliminator, the trial and any unbeatable AI is easy then you're too pro gamer for me.

 

Everyone can get exactly the challenge they want with it.

Don't think it's easy at all, the trial can go anywhere from a piece of piss to totally fucking impossible depending on the braincells of the randoms you get going in. I ranted about this a while ago but I still don't get how hard it is for people to look at the restrictions in advance and prepare and tune a car accordingly before just queuing for the trial or even PG games. I despise the eliminator as a game mode, a racing game does not need a BR mode. Like was mentioned above it's literally just luck whether you get the right car drop and are in the right place at the right time. 

 

There is a tiny bit of skill in that if you have decent map knowledge and the foresight to position yourself correctly you have a slight edge but if you don't get the drops you won't win anyway. 

 

I just think it's good to have "some" game modes that require a bit more than just facerolling every race and still getting showered with rewards. As mentioned above, you can reach what is essentially the "endgame" having just done random PR stunts and the odd race.

Not sure if this is the best thread to ask but I had this originally installed on an HDD on my PC, standard seagate jobbie, and I got the idea the other day to put it onto my C drive as it's an SSD. Thing is since using the Windows Move App to move the game to the C drive the loading times are way worse and there is far more noticeable pop in which wasn't there before. Any advice on how to resolve or should I be uninstalling and reinstalling (which these days means dl the whole fucking 102GB again!)? Any advice appreciated, cheers. 

 

Wow, seems my system drive is the Seagate HDD and my Data drive is the SDD, why am I such an idiot?! Apologies for polluting the thread.

If anyone has issues with the weekly challenge for eliminating 5 people in the eliminator, apparently you need to do another challenge afterwards for it to register....

 

Apparently doing one of the PR stunts again is making it work for some people. Just an FYI, in case people know they have 5 or more and there's no joy. 

 

EDIT: Confirmed, did eliminator challenge and didn't unlock. Completed once I did the trailblazer straight after.

Having real issues with the trial this week, tried 4-5 times last night and another 4 so far tonight and just can't get a good team. Haven't struggled this much on it in weeks 😕 

Not sure how much more time I can willingly put in tonight but the season resets tomorrow :(

Couple of questions I’ve been meaning to ask since launch. What are those stickers I unlock that go on the map (they’re like tick boxes but are different race types?)

 

Secondly, do I have to go back to the barns to get the cars that are there after a bit of time passes or do I just get the cars? Oh or is there an icon mission I need to do on the map?

I’m assuming the stickers are the ones you get for unlocking Horizon outposts, one for each specialist race type (dirt, road, street etc). Complete all the tickbox challenges and then open the incredibly long race for that particular race type.

 

Once you’ve discovered them initially, the barn finds get taken back to your garage automatically and are ‘restored’ by your mechanics. They all take a bit of time to be ready to drive but you get notified when each one is ready. Then you can go to your garage screen, select the car that’s ready in the ‘Barn Find’ section, and add it to your main garage.

I tried it last night for the first time. Could do them in FH4. This time around the AI did its thing of strapping a rocket to two cars and they disappeared off into the distance by the third bend.

 

They’ve taken “Unbeatable” literally. Bollocks to that.

No issues with the trial this week, had an ok group and completed it first go.  Cant do the complete a tour in a vw camper though as it never gives me a camper tour 😡.  Sat on the tour start page for ages last night with it offering a different tour every 120 seconds, NONE of them were camper 🤬

Yeah it's bollocks alright. Got it done in the end after many hours of failing to win more than the first race. Genuinely if none of your team catch the AI in the first lap you won't win.

They're on a set rotation, so you can look at the below link, and then queue yourself when it's that particular time. 

 

https://www.trueachievements.com/forum/viewthread.aspx?tid=1345081

 

The numbers on the left are real world minutes. So see what time it is when you're ready to go and tune your car for the next one upcoming that fits that vehicle type or class. Useful to know because when the season resets today I believe there is a challenge at some point for a similar thing.

I'd be hearing a lot of rumours about problems at Playground, mostly troubled development of Fable (people joining expecting to make driving games and being dumped on it, people leaving etc) but the state of this, which should have been basically a freebie as the 4th Horizon on the same engine really makes me worry about them and how Fable might crawl out.

Thanks, used that to find an A class anything goes tour and had my van tuned up and ready to go for it (as did 3 others in the group 🙂)

 

Then just had the "oh deer" championship left and completed that with a stock 722 car after failing to win it with one tuned up to 800.  Must have been picking bad tunes as kept finishing way down the pack in the circuit race and then won it pretty comfortably in an all untuned pack

No worries, TA is worth checking out a day or two after each season to be honest. I mostly use it for achievement hunting but they do put out an article every week for what tunes work best for every seasonal championship, PR stunt and trial that week. It's saved me a lot of trial and error experimenting to find the right car/tune.

I've found by far the most fun vehicle to drive in the game.

 

The Mercedes Benz truck.

 

You're right. That thing's a beast. I tried it out on one of the seasonal championships and it just steamrollers over everything into first place.

Started this earlier having never played a Forza game… it’s fun! Last racing game I played is NFS: Heat, which I’m guessing is a ripoff of Forza based on this being a much slicker version of Heat.

 

Bought a 1969 Ford Mustang, painted it dark green and hooned around Mexico for an hour. Lovely stuff.

The 'unbeatable' AI is pretty beatable this week.

 

I haven't been so lucky so far 😕 Tried 3 times today and had people quit left, right and centre every time. Less people is actually better in theory because your score is more reliant on your play. Having said that if there's only 2 of you and your teammate is dead last, you still can't win 😕 

 

Will keep at it, I normally leave it till well late on in the week, this time I'll try earlier on, maybe the better players get it done in the first few days, I dno.

I thought I was the only one who cared about that. I used to love sitting back and watching a replay after a race but somehow in modern games it often dissapoints. Not sure what happened, guess it's just not a priority.

Yeah, it's so inconsistent man. Barring last week, I had been getting most of them in 1-2 tries, it just purely comes down to randos and whether they choose to race clean or not. The amount of times I've had people purposely ram me off the road or into barriers when I'm trying to pass is criminal.

I think it shows how many can't actually drive and just constantly have their finger on accelerate. But yes there is also a number of toxic idiots out there, I got rammed into the trees at the start of the second race during my first attempt this morning!
