Just had a few races with the kids and it's not just the reflections, the whole textures & lighting is up the spout even on max graphics. That's on an AlienWare laptop which can handle anything so it's not my hardware. I'll try a few different set-ups tomorrow.

Yes I know. It is the same for me too on a Ryzen2700x with GTX1070.

Congratulations, Gameloft, you may finally have succeeded in killing this game, which I had previously long considered the best racing game ever.

The most recent updates have made the game itself simply intolerable.

Quite the master stroke: from top of the field to too obnoxious to bear.

We wish for change from this aversion so we hang on in hope. This update was brutal so I will try and throw out this sentiment.

The weekly vip bundle showed its ugly side again today. Includes a 1-hour NS and a 3-hour DC.

My bundle has not appeared yet. So, its looking more and more like this is using a countdown timer based on you last claim vs a scheduled respawn time. I claimed my last one Wednesday last week. Will see if I have to wait until tomorrow for it to appear or if my game just hasn’t refreshed itself yet... (I did try restarting but no bundle yet.) I have exactly the same bundle as @Itsyou18.

Stupidity the OpenGL drivers, DirectX type work better than the bespoke drivers.

Well definitely not a fan of the fusion coin max upgrades.  Burned 300 cards to make 2 upgrades that would have taken 15 races in credits to complete.

but on the bright side I do like the feature that warns me if I accidentally tap a purchase more than 100 credits.  So .... there's that little gold nugget.
