I'm not sure how I feel about the new seasonal championship rewards. I appreciate that they're all credits-based, but the payout seems so small. And it's going to be like this for the next 12 weeks?
They said the championships would have a 3.6M prize pool, so if you're winning 100k/championship x 3/ week, that's what it comes to after 12 weeks. Of you do the championships in both SP & MP (co-op or vs), you can double that.

Hmm. I feel like the average payout for a super wheelspin had to have been at least 100k. So really this just eliminates the randomness of the reward but doesn't actually increase it at all. Ah well.

Lucky you... The average payout for my super wheel spins is 3 pairs of boots. I'll gladly take the payout.

Why does team adventure keep docking me points when I'm a top finisher on the winning team?

I just lost 11 points. Around a week or two ago I was docked ~33 points (mind, I'm at a point where I'm not being rewarded such a high point total). I've seen it randomly switch players between teams multiple times now, but this is particularly annoying.


Also, apart from reporting players have the devs made any mention of possibly penalising players who consistently and blatantly ram your car, push/sideswipe you or make several attempts to run your car off the road with various tactics?

Much of the online play remains abysmal with shameful drivers.

Mirrors my experience with Ranked pretty well:
It's a hard thing to resolve when you make a racing game where there's no real damage systems, which is essentially what arcade racers should be at all times. Whether you have cars off walls, slight penalties for touching the wall (I think PGR3 slowed you down to almost a halt if you tried riding the wall), you can't do a whole lot to avoid people abusing the arcade side of the races. Ramming into a 90 degrees corner's wall at 360 and instantly slowing down instead of needing, say, 150 metres of slowing down and then taking the corner will always be more effective, and the moment you can't recover from such a crash because the game docks you like 30 seconds for it, the casuals will drop the multiplayer races altogether. People ram like crazy even in games like Codemasters' F1 titles to avoid having to brake properly, I'm not surprised Forza Horizon (in ranked, especially) becomes the ideal playground (heh) for cheesy tactics.

Anyone?

Is this a known issue?

I just completed another team adventure, finishing 3rd, 2nd and then 1st in what was three straight wins for our team... yet the game subtracted ~25 points from me.

Clean, fast racing with skill chains yet I'm losing points after a team win. How can this be possible?

If you have a video capture, please send it me or submit a support ticket and let me know the ticket number so we can look into this.

What are skill songs?

Unrelated, but for the story events (like British Green and Fastest Limo) will those cars in the event use your current tune if you tune that car ahead of time? A couple of those "levels" I have legitimately no idea how to make up the time difference with the cars as given.

You can just drive in a straight line in most of the races, there are no checkpoints.

haha, I had that thought but in free roam a lot of my "shortcuts" end up taking longer so I thought that might not work so well. I will give it a shot though for some of the stubborn ones. Some of them I was like a solid minute slower than the top leaderboards so I figured there was something I was missing because I'm only reasonably bad.

I've been playing on and off since launch and still have shit all money in the grand scheme things. The economy in this game just sucks and not being able to sell off all these cars you don't want without using the AH is lame.
 
I won the Aventador FE just before in a Wheelspin. I saw that all the ones on the AH have min bids of 1-1.5mill with max buy outs at 20mill. Yet when I go to list mine, I can only max buy out at 600 000 with bids starting at 50k.

Did they nerf the value of the car, or is the AH glitched? Any reason I can't go higher then 600k for a buy out?

I can’t beloeve how many issues I’ve run into with this game. Used to not be able to find ranked team adventures, now I’ve been waiting 5 minutes for a unranked team adventure. What is this? What the hell is going on?

Season can make a huge difference, but you maybe already knew that. Some of the events seem like they'd be next to impossible if you don't do them in the summer or dry days in spring/fall. Also, there's at least one Laracer event where in order to get three stars, you basically HAVE to take a shortcut--and not just the obvious one either. (There's also one challenge in British Racing Green that I'm pretty sure you can do legit but is just way, way, WAY faster if you take the fairly obvious shortcut.)

You can't tune the cars beforehand, as far as I'm aware.

I wonder if I should even bother saving up $$$ for the last castle. There are so many cars that are expensive as fuck in this game.
I am skipping the castles in favor of, well honestly I'm not buying any cars either so I'm not sure what I'm saving my cash for D:

Edit: yet another season where I already own all the cosmetics in the Forzathon store :/

Forzathon store the new Xûr?

4 million right now. Probably had about 10 million all up since I've been playing although it's not that much since there's so much else out lately.
After how many hours? What level are you? I took some screenshots way back, and this was when my total winnings (not counting the garage value) were at around 10 million:



This is now:



I'm not swimming in money, and I'm still saving up for the last castle, but I can't really complain.

I need to go farm up some skill points. I try to use a new car at least briefly each day I play, and I end up using points faster than I'm earning them even if I'm not unlocking half the perks each time. Also I need to get a better idea of what to expect from each car because it's basically 100% surprise each time for me :P

Same! It is one of the reason I really like the Seasonal/Weekly stuff. They make me try out different cars and that is my favorite part of the game really.


I rarely spend many points on cars I am not going to really use much, it is not really worth it otherwise. Luckily farming those points is pretty easy and quick.

Yo, is Forza Hub not working for anybody else? The last two days I've got "Forza Hub not available. Forza Hub is temporarily unavailable. Please try again later." when trying to open it. I've unistalled and reinstalled it.

anyone else having issues with being kicked out of an online session after almost every race? After a race and returning to the openworld, i have to pause and select Play Online. I have also been disconnected in the middle of a forzathon which was annoying :\
