Well once you start using it, it isn't that difficult. 

Updated my previous post with the engines required for the new cars. Seems like they will be using V6, Hybrid, FiV8 and V12 engines. How many per car is anyone's guess at the moment but I think it'll probably be a minimum of 60 to maybe around 100?

We really need a new way of communicating with Gameloft like we need a hole in the head... unless you're adding staff to cover the new platform then you're diluting the (already poor) attention this forum gets.
 

A9 main communication platform is discord, A9 GL forum is dead and toxic as hell. Though discord also is toxic. Most important info is usually shared on both. Since they are shifting towards newbies and younger audience, discord will be prioritized.

I don't care about A9, it's a terrible game.

Gameloft don't really want to engage with their customers, they wan't to do the minimum possible.

This won't prevent me, and others, pointing out what they're doing wrong. If something you own is toxic then fix it, don't make excuses for them.

Discord will be even more toxic because Gameloft won't be able to engage and satisfy enough free mods to stay on top of realtime communication. And they won't make the people investment they need to do it properly themselves.

They don't have enough staff to manage their existing online presence, adding new channels is both stupid and fatal.

Gameloft's customer engagement and digital strategies are woeful, they are failing to do the one thing a game developer must do before making money - keeping gamers happy.

The funny thing is that some of what they do is good, it's just obliviated by what they do bad and this is compounded by their woeful expectation management. If they simply got better at communication there would so much less angst.

As an established player it seems I'm actually better off after all the pre- and post-FLU changes. I get a few less (new) cars than previously but it doesn't seem like I'm missing out on much, with ~250 cars in the game performance gaps are now so compressed and cars so expensive that the chances of me actually meeting a better car with a better driver are limited. I havent needed the Centenario or 600LT so don't miss them, Champion League is now simple even without them and the number of races needed for Elite is borderline insane, certainly unhealthy. New cars are not worth what they cost (for 20k+ tokens they should be utterly dominant) so there's zero incentive to get them.

So, instead of aiming for every car (I'm currently 247/247 and all MAX/PRO except my tuned AIE) I can be more selective. They're giving away more tokens and I'm spending less because I'm now more selective. This works in my favour.

They're clearly turning this game into a multiplayer shell for those that want to pay to have the latest cars. They're giving all new cars a MP advantage (either through favourable performance or matchmaking) and discouraging new players... soon it'll be entirely MP focused... and you'll have to acquire the latest cars to remain competitive... and you'll have to pay for that privilege. Rinse and repeat becasue that requires the least investment by Gameloft for the highest return.

Why not just come out and tell us what they're planning? A new communication channel? It's a waste of time and effort to put lipstick on a pig.
