The venom has good stats and easy car to drive, but has fake speed. Might be good some day if they fix the s class fake speeds like they did with a few lower ranked cars this update.

No reason not to buy credit cars. You can farm for more credits.

Also, part of the New World Glory collection which gives TKs for both completion and max.

No good for MP then even at stock?


Anyone tried the Sbarro Sparta I'm at Max 5x5x2x5 and Pro 5x5x5x5

Try it yourself and report back. Nothing to lose this season. Almost everybody have the Asterion...

The great thing about elite cars is the ability to scale the rank up and down to test lower ranks. That's what I've been doing with my M2.

Since cars are now much more closely competitive by rank, matching becomes far more important. Being mismatched by just 40 points can make a nearly insurmountable difference (occasional exceptions not withstanding).  GL's matching algorithm that can result in a rank spread as much as 130 points completely undermines the goal of making MP more based on skill. Only the top cars at around rank1850 are immune to this. Perhaps GL should introduce hard breaks at various ranks. For instance, at rank 1600 no cars ranking higher could be included in a race. Then, lower ranks could have the same benefit as the top 1850 ranks. Perhaps put these hard breaks at each even 100 rank points: 1000, 1100,1200 ... 1800, open. Otherwise, GL's goal will never be realized.

@nograe Totally agree.

For now I settled on a DeZir with a rank 1112 (which is a result of a tuning attempt trying to salvage the car after this update) and it feels pretty strong at this rank, how ironic that even after severly affecting it's stats, the car is still dominant in it's rank.
It seems to be slightly inferior to only ARSEs.
Today I had 4 races and won all of them, fighting mostly against other Dezir's.

Going back to to what @nograe wrote, in my case, even a DeZir with 30 more point in rank (imagene 1 speed upgrade) and you have very little chance of winning.

If there was an MM ceiling every hundred points, everyone would just tune to ##99. Shame about max pro mp4-8s, for example, which would end up consistently with max pro arses.

The only way to get fair matchmaking - or at least, it's a prerequisite - is enough numbers of punters playing. And that's entirely in GLs hands. Maybe stopping p*ssing off the punters so they leave to play other games would be a start :)
