My 25 golden tickets didn't last too long, they disappeared into the matrix when i restarted the app. Maybe they'll return tomorrow  :)

Was able to run 5 challenges this time. Still no sign of the promised bonus tickets gift. So, I’m out of tickets. Had to use boosters or guaranteed loss. Also had to use boosters for my qualifier race to prevent folks from just killing me with challenges. The skidding got me 3 out of 5 races. Won 2 challenges when I didn’t wreck from spinning into a wall. I’m at 984 points (started with 1000). Going backwards. 😂 I’m at 384/1000 on the leaderboard. If I stay there I’ll grab the 201-500 Elite reward of 30K FCs and a purple Engine.

Did manage to collect all 5 daily challenge rewards for Elite league, So that’s 20K FCs, some minimal boosters, 1 each of purple parts (no tech or engines) and 88K credits.

Dunno if I’ll be able to keep using boosters for this. Might just have to play for daily rewards only, which you get win or lose. And just finish in the bottom for the season every time. I just don’t think the boosters are worth the rewards for the season. Need them more for MP.

Will give this mode some more chances, but without boosters, I’m probably just gonna farm it for the daily rewards and call it a day. You can only run 5 races a day anyway; so, what’s the point? I rerun more career races than that...

I’ve already invested hundreds and hundreds of dollars in this game over the years, not really interested in spending more money just to be competitive in this new thing that I never wanted. Will just play other modes. Especially, when the bug fixes are secondary to new features. Not gonna spend on something that is broken.

Exactly that. Especially now that ch3ating is so rampant - this mode will be a neverending Ch3ater's Party Mode  🎉🎉

Hello Andreea, it's good to see you back.
We know that you're not supposed to say your true and honest opinion about issues that plague this game. 
So here is this new game mode, a bit glitchy now but it will be fixed, hopefully. 
My questions is: ARE GL PEOPLE AWARE OF THE NUMBER OF CH3ATERS IN ASPHALT 8?
What is the point of creating a new game mode where Ch3aters will be posting impossible race times? 
Why GL tolerates Ch3aters, which makes the rest of us feeling like fools? 
I wish I could expect an answer, but... 
It's just absurd

I’m still trying to work this out.
I run 5 C class cars, don’t like driving the S class.

First race I guess is to put you into the suitable league, straight into elite.
Now I find all I compete against is S class cars.

I guess I’d be an easy target for points :).

Edit:
Opps I’m not in elite, just the gold gauntlet image confused me.
Anyway I just drive for fun.

3 out of 5 had impossible times. I'm starting to suspect that in addition to ch3aters, GL throws in this gauntlet mode some AIs with absurd times like they did in the past with ultimate AIs in events.

So its not possible to go down a League.
Purposely selected 5 cars that total under 9000 to run the home turf race and still get put into Elite.
Can we sell our garage dust-collecting cars already. Those high stock ranked festival cars are artificially inflating us into leagues we don't want to be in.
