A new era in multiplayer competition begins now!

After months of planning, testing, and fine-tuning, you can finally take this complete multiplayer overhaul for a spin! With inspiration from the fan-favorite Gauntlet mode and loads of community feedback, we bring you a completely new Multiplayer Season and League mode.

Thank you, everyone, for sharing your thoughts and making this possible. As you play the update, we hope you will continue giving feedback on our social media channels. See you on the track!

1. Brand New Multiplayer Experience
• Up to 12 players can compete in a single Multiplayer race (depending on the Season).
• Ticket limit increased to 10 and is now restored daily, similarly to the Gauntlet mode. It is enough to complete all daily goals and claim all daily rewards.
• Streamlined the process for starting a game by eliminating the vote for game mode, track and number of laps.
• Access to certain cars is now linked to your League:
o Amateur League: D-class only
o Challenger League: Up to C-class
o Pro League: Up to B-class
o Champion League: Up to A-class
o Elite League: All cars accessible

2. More Multiplayer Rewards
• Multiplayer Badges are a new currency available exclusively from Multiplayer Season rewards.
• A dedicated shop for Multiplayer Badges, providing other currencies, Golden Tickets for Gauntlet and Multiplayer, Wild Cards and various car upgrades
• Up to 5 Reward Boxes can be collected every day by completing Daily Goals:
o Amateur, Challenger, and Pro League players get 3 boxes.
o Champion League players get 4 boxes.
o Elite League players get all 5 boxes!
• Season-long challenges can be completed for extra rewards when a Season ends.
• No more League tiers, and way more valuable rewards for reaching a higher League.
• Removed the deprecated Multiplayer Level system. VIP bonuses have been updated to provide more valuable benefits instead of multiplayer XP bonus.

3. Usability Improvements
• By popular request, the inbox now features ‘Store All’ and ‘Exchange All’ buttons to quickly collect - or cash out - all the rewards that pile up!
• Streamlined Multiplayer flow by getting rid of pre-race boosters selection. You can access your boosters from the Multiplayer screen now
• Updated the look of Wild Cards and added a tutorial to better demonstrate how players can use them to improve their car’s performance.
• We’ve heard your requests for improved customer support, so we’ve implemented the latest HelpShift software to optimize the process on iOS and Android.

4. Rebalanced Cars
• McLaren 720S
o Base Top Speed changed from 340.1 to 341
o Base Rank changed from 1,364 to 1,367

• Porsche 911 GT3 RS
o Fully upgraded Top Speed changed from 393.9 to 379.0
o Fully upgraded Nitro changed from 42.9 to 42.1
o Fully upgraded Rank changed from 1,649 to 1,590, making it multiplayer- competitive with 14 other cars at this Rank

• Porsche 959
o Fully upgraded Top Speed changed from 316.1 to 293.0
o Fully upgraded Nitro changed from 35.0 to 32.6
o Fully upgraded Rank changed from 1,327 to 1,232, making it multiplayer-competitive with 17 other cars at this Rank

• Porsche 718 Boxster S
o Fully upgraded Top Speed changed from 345.0 to 335.7
o Fully upgraded Nitro changed from 37.9 to 37.3
o Fully upgraded Rank changed from 1,447 to 1,410, making it multiplayer-competitive with 12 other cars at this Rank


5. Revamped VIP Rewards

• New VIP Level Rewards:
o A 3-Day Nitro Starter, 3-Day Extra Tank, and 3-Day Tuning Kit are now given at every VIP level.
o The Ariel Atom V8 was added to the level 1 VIP rewards. Players who already reached VIP 1 can now purchase it from the Garage for Fuse Coins.
o Upgrade Kits for the Ariel Atom V8 are now available starting at VIP 2. Players will earn a total of 220 cards by VIP 4.
o Starting at VIP 5, Wild Cards will be given at each new VIP level. By VIP 15, players will earn a total of 125 Bronze Wild Cards, 295 Silver Wild Cards, and 900 Gold Wild Cards.
o The GTA Spano is now permanently (and exclusively) available as a VIP 15 reward.
o Tokens, Pro Kit Cards, and non-exclusive cars have been removed from the VIP rewards. The Volkswagen Beetle Turbo, Range Rover Evoque, Ferrari Testarossa and McLaren 570S are still available from the Garage by all players.

• More VIP Bonuses
o Players will gain more VIP Bonus Credits in Career and Car Mastery races:
+5% at VIP 1 (VIP 3 previously)
+10% at VIP 3 (VIP 7 previously)
+15% at VIP 7 (VIP 11 previously)
+20% at VIP 11 (VIP 15 previously)

+10% at VIP 5 (VIP 6 previously)
+15% at VIP 8 (same as before)
+20% at VIP 10 (same as before)
+25% at VIP 12 (same as before)
+30% at VIP 14 (same as before)

+10% at VIP 6 (VIP 7 previously)
+15% at VIP 9 (same as before)
+20% at VIP 11 (same as before)
+25% at VIP 13 (same as before)
+30% at VIP 15 (same as before)

o Since there are no more Levels or XP in the new Multiplayer Seasons, VIP XP Bonuses have been removed.

CL-up to A-class? Not including A-class? I take it includes a-class.
