I have to admit i'm getting a bit of perverse enjoyment out of running MP races on Windows smetimes.  Just to see how many people's cars I can hit with strikes who have no shields yet are untouachable anyway.  :D

Yeah, I'd probably do it too if the fuel requirement was 0 like it should be.

I usually only run the other events once unless I crash.   The rewards in TLEs are so feeble now I don't usually even use boosts.   That leaves a lot of fuel through a day.   

Showdown mode isn't something i want to play at all but I'll run a race now and then and it's amazing how many people are cheating.  GL has always turned a blind eye to it for the most part.    I would bet that most of those in the top 100 of single player showdown events are running cheats.   Nobody apparently cares.   Even the players are resigned to it anymore.

I don't believe in coincidences so when you see a player in position #1 in the LB, well ahead of position #2, then you have the unfortunate experience to race against such player and you are hit by him with a Surge Strike almost three times in a row (I was well ahead of everybody), it is impossible not to believe that this guy has a special hack going on... I ended up in 3rd, out of 4.  (Showdown MP TLE).

I had the exact same thing happen.  So far ahead that I couldn't see anyone on the map but got hit 3 straight times.   Apparently there's no distance limit on the surge strike but someone getting 3 of them one right after another is pretty fishy.   I already know a good share of these people are cheating using the no-crash hack.  It defeats every strike in the game so they're basically invulnerable.    Leave it to Lameloft to develope a mode of play where the cheaters have even more of a leg up on everybody else.

HA! And I said I don't believe in coincidence but for no good reason I decided to record my SD MP race, just this time, and I think it brought me luck because I had a great race, from disastrous to victorious... :-)

I actually like it, although it's a bit unfair to others, it's still fun to play as a TLE. I don't care if I get hit, I don't care if I get last, this mode is basically for fun purposes for me. You get hit, you hit others, battling like that mobile game Beach Buggy Racing(hah, you Blur and Mario Karters!).

BUT, just DON'T put this in the Multiplayer World Series. If you do, the game will rot and disintegrate to thin air. The mode is for fun, not extreme stress, so don't put it in MP world series.
No more Asphalt 8 for me, just Minecraft, Superfighters, and GD now. I like creating maps, custom levels, and editor stuff. Bye A8.

After weeks of SDM my feedback is: it‘s just another unrealistic mode, like TAG-races/Infected Mode etc. - (Based on luck as a variable made us upset.) The hype about it was great but it’s nothing that will change the game itself. (Nobody wants to improve Infected Mode and also SDM needs no improvement). SDM is just a new addition, no fix, no help, no step ahead. It’s finished. It’s a manoeuvre to entertain us away from urgencies that won’t change anyway. We were shocked in the first days😵. GL will continue with it. It really doesn’t matter.
GLogic hurts. Fusion Coins are FuCs (no swearword!).

Hmmm...it took you so long to realize this? Lol...

Come on, take a short hard look at the CMs here and you will see where their priorities lie. They come in only when you **** them hard enough and they feel insulted enough. otherwise they won't bother to show up at all. Either that or there is something that they need to post. Otherwise you won't even see their ghost around.

Entertainment value? Not sure about that. If I were entertained or if I felt I could be entertained, I probably would play A8 more than the 10 mins or so I spend watching 10 ads daily. Now I play more because I'm using the 2 CS to collect tokens and boxes. Might end up getting the GT3 though but will pass on the MP4-31. Card requirements are just crazy for that.
