🥱

Most likely the new update is close and these days GL will upload "the new things". I expect the game not to work very well all the time.

This! ^^

Then the game will continue to work badly because the "new things" will require adjustment, then it will still work badly because they'll be rebalancing some parameters, then it will still work badly because they'll be trying the new "new things" and so on...
But hey, in between we may be blessed of a total of 2 hours and 4 minutes per week, flawless gameplay and performance, so be always active and wait for the blessings! ;D

GlitchLads are about to release new form of MP mode (allegedly tag racing) but they still don't have clue how to fix gauntlet mode. I see ⬇️this spinning circle 95% of the time, don't know why and what it keeps updating or is it transferring personal data from mobile back to their business partners🤔

@JakeP - it was removed, was confirmed already. The LB issue in Tire cup was reported yesterday, said they're looking into it today but no other information so far. Will try to ask for some compensation if possible.

Surprised of you asking for a gazillion times, no!
Surprised that she didn't provide any news, no, there are no new news, so what could she possibly say?

Would it be OK if I let my imagination play? Just a little bit?
 
I can’t help thinking about time-sheets. By means of time-sheets the Big Corporate Brother can — along with many things — watch his army of little brothers, evaluate their efficiency (= what are they getting their money for?) as well as his own monetary efficiency (= what is he paying for?) etc.
So the employer provides codes assigned to different types of activities to keep them little brothers busy.
 
A few examples of activity codes:
Licensing Vehicles: XXXX
Designing a new Eldorado Megamall (where players can knock themselves out and buy a variety of items a racer could possibly desire): XXXY
Inventing Innovative Monetization Schemes: XXYY
PR activities: XYYY
…
…
Wait, and where is the code for CM forum activities? Blimey, no such code.
 
A code for fixing bugs?
Well, technically there might be a code for fixing bugs but those activities (=operating expenses to be allocated to purchasing Clorox disinfectant which per se is not designed to kill insects, including bugs, but it will kill them anyway) are kept on a close-to-zero level. Furthermore in order to use that code you have to get a special approval… let’s say from a Finance Guy. The Finance Guy has no slightest idea about job specifics of a programming engineer, and his rich vocabulary does not contain words like bugs and glitches. It contains terms like cash inflows and cash outflows, gains and losses, costs and benefits. So, any non-cash generating activity is for the Finance Guy some sort of infamita a mere thought of which can trigger uncontrolled panic attacks. And instead of approval the potential bug fixers will get a pep talk (Are you degenerates or what? Do we have to pay additional expenses incurred by your incompetence? Just do your bloody work properly and there will be no bugs.) I wonder if anyone would risk another approach to the Finance Guy with that bug nonsense request.
 
So, it wouldn’t surprise me if a programmer — upon receiving a package of some evidence (e. g. control issues) — would sigh, send the package to the waste basket by clicking the delete-button, and get back to designing another in-game… currency.

When are mooks planning to fix Neon Pursuit and Metal Garden tracks. I have lost a bunch of tickets because of improperly laid gates/ghost barricades.

Also if any of these mooks have ever played junklet they will come to know how annoying opponents ghosts and banner sized player names are. They can atleast 1. Make the ghosts more transparent and reduce its size 2. Get rid of players name, we know who we are challenging.

Dunno what route you are taking but the one I use, for both tracks, have none of these problems. They are some of the tracks that I like the most in the game at this time. Their reverse counterparts, on the other hand, I hate them.

please remove bikes from the calculation of Gauntlet rank

It seems GL fixed it. My new total rank is correct, Tomahawk is no longer part of it.
