Giving a date on when the new update time take effect would have worked fine too. Maybe they need a hire a better PR person to post news updates

It's the implication that it would start today because they posted it last night that we're discussing, not the actual time it will go up. They shouldn't have even bothered putting it up if they had no intention of doing it at that time the very next day.

Just like the implication of free Christmas cars for everyone. Wait, some on here got free Christmas cars,lol. Nevermind.

I think "suggest" could be subbed for "implied". It suggests to the reader vs the writer implying. To me, it suggests that since they put it up the last week of the month, it would start the first week of the next month. It would be part, not all, of next month's "big update".

Remember how people a page back were complaining about errors in the game? Not putting a day leaves them leeway to make sure what they put out is error free. Same goes for the 1 day plus or minus stipulation. Pretty funny really. For a company that practically NEVER tells what it is going to do and people are begging for info, when they finally give some people still aren't satisfied. Its obviously a company culture to be generalists in terms of what they are doing and when. Kaz obviously doesn't like being nailed down and forced to put something out not to his standards just to meet a deadline. The alternative is to announce a date and change it if needed and all the backlash that entails. Something he seems to not want to do.

I don't know if the Christmas car thing is a stab at PD or not. Whatever though, the blame from that could be on PD AND SCEE/SCEA. Who knows.

And no, I think the implication is there. If you call someone on Tuesday and say, "Hey from now on we're going to have bowling nights on Wednesdays. Be there at 7." why would you not infer from that that it would start the next day? The "writers" at PD implied that it would start today because it was posted so close. It seems they did not intend it to be so, in which case it should have been explained a little better or just posted further away from today.

And if they wanted it to start next month, it's not hard to type that in. Just a few keystrokes, really.

Don't take this as whining or anything, because there are far worse things in the game I rather them look at. This is just me having free time nitpicking on a forum.

The reason for the Christmas cars is because they have made statements before and people misinterpreted them. It would not be a first. For all we know someone accidentally posted the message a week early or Thursday is the the day for release this week. Either way, its coming.

And if you call someone and said, hey, let's go bowling either Tues, Wed, or Thurs, probably Wed though. And you complain on Wed. that you haven't been bowling, what does that mean? Oh, and that person is from a totally different culture too with different expressions and interpretations of what you consider is common.

By using the X1, you take away the challenge of trying to win by beating a faster or equally fast car. Of course the challenge is to win by finishing. You used a car with 500 hp more then any other car on the field and eliminated the chance of losing just like anyone who maxes their car out during the Seasonal Events to blow away the competition. Its the same thing on a different scale. I don't blame you for doing it, but if people are going to call out doing a sure thing in the game and want it harder, they should push for races like the endurance races to have car limits too. In the end it comes down to you chose that car because the game gave you leeway to choose it over a LM car. You should have the same leeway on the Seasonal Events.


REMINDER: EXTRA CR per event ends Feb 1.

But you see, I wouldn't call them and say "we're going bowling at 7pm wed. Probably. Could be Tues morning or Thursday afternoon though"

It is pointless to break down the hour when things will be updated and then give a 48 hour margin of error. Should of just said "sometime Wednesday".

As to the culture thing, then the person in charge of NA or the translator should of thought about the English interpretations before blindly putting it up.

I picked an awful car for the Japan 79 challenge. Saw the S Nissan SILVIA (CSP311) 65 in the used lot so I bought it. After engine upgrade, turbo, filter, etc it is still terrible slow. 40+ wasted.

I'm not sure what Gold Standard is, but the Red Bull Challenge is wayyyyyy more difficult than the GT-R Official Record trophy if you ask me. Just make sure that you read the trophy description for the GT-R Official Record.

You need to do it in an Arcade mode time trial on Nurburbring Nordschleife, using the arcade GT-R '07 and on the default tires. And with it being a time trial, going off the track will invalidate your time.

It took me a number of tries, but what I did was instead of trying to do the fastest lap possible, I would just try to incrementally beat the ghost of my previous best lap. I found it much easier (and less stressful) that way. Shave off a second here and there, and the next thing you know, you've beaten it.

Still working on that Vettel Challenge...

I'm really surprised at how rare the McLaren F1 seems to be. I've traded with 7 different people so far, mostly in the last two weeks, and 6 have asked for it as their first choice.

Are there any other cars like this (besides like the pink and orange X2010s and whatnot)?
