I love it but I hate it!

Forza 5. I truly do love this game but there are 2 things that really stress me out. I have owned every forza game (except horizon, not a forza game in my eyes) and have loved them all. But since the beggining two things have always annoyed me. First is the lack of qualifying. Was doing a championship today and every time I got started in second last. This has always bothered me as I have to get passed all the slow cars to get up to the leaders. Now something as simple as a single hot lap would be enough but no. I nearly always get started in last. I have lost races because of the simple fact the leaders are so far out in front and the race ends before I get there. Which brings me to the second thing. The short races. When your starting at the bottom of the pack and you trying to get to the front, 2 laps really isn't enough. Sometimes I will lose simply because I couldn't get up to the front because I got stuck behind the slower cars and ran out if laps. So no qualifying and not being able to adjust the amount of laps. Oh it would be perfect!

I found that if the track is short then you will normally get 3 or 4 laps to compensate. If you're struggling to make it to the front, I hate to say it, but you should try to save up for a new car as I have had trouble getting to the front too but have solved it after a complete new car.

The thing that really gets me is the Drivitar system. Although the system is brilliant and frankly a next-gen stroke of genius, I'm absolutely sick to death of being side slammed by people who obviously drive under the impression that it's Need For Speed. i think it could be improved if they had a kind of filter for driving styles. That way, I could drive with people who know how to and the Need For Speed idiots can all go ruin each other's lap times.

i just started getting into Forza Motorsport .. loved Horizon though .. but anyway my biggest thing is the cost of cars .. especially the exclusive McLaren that i got a code for but it's only to buy it instead of being in my garage.  

I was able to bank over 2 million credits in less then 2 hours yesterday. and purchased 2 high proceed cars with the mony. i'll probably do it again tonight to get the bugetti veyron

[/quote]That can annoy me too, it can some times feel like demolition derby lol. I go for the perfect pass but then get hit at the back, Drivatar learns how you drive and some times it's hard not to hit cars when most cars are bumping into you probably making your Drivatar drive the same way.

(Actually haven't been on Forza for weeks, I do wonder how my Drivatar is doing lol)

Feel free to share your secrets. Of course difficulty increases the payout but not quite to that extent. I've been doing the bonus races too but they don't pay much more tun the standard series. I'm currently raking in about £200,000 an hour.

The thing is I do win most races but I would like to turn the difficulty up. If I do and I get started in last then I have no chance if winning at all. I don't care about winning all the time but seriously, having to get through all slow barging cars at the bottom is really frustrating. Also the lap thing. Sometimes I'd love to do championships with maybe 10 lap races. I like a good endurance race every now and then. 2 laps on a track really isn't enough. Race is over in 5 mins.

I actually find it really annoying that I have to pay again in game to use my paid DLC. I don't want to start a platform war but when I bought the Academy Edition of Gran Turismo 5 they all went straight to my garage for immediate use.

There's a few cars I'd like to own like LaFerrari and the Veyron SuperSport but I won't be paying real money only to have to grind to enjoy them.

Yeah, it does worry me that I'm being portrayed as a rear-ending driver because the more reckless drivers like to smash me in to other people. I'm by no means perfect with my driving but sometimes it's just a deliberate attempt to take you off the track which benefits nobody. I even messaged one of my friends yesterday to tell him what I thought of his driving style and told him to go buy Need For Speed.

It would be nice to play a greater variety of race styles like Endurance. I know I've played a game that has such things but I genuinely can't remember if it was an older Forza or Gran Turismo, to be honest it could be a completely different game.

It's no big secret that the game was rushed to an extent to come as a launch title, it shows itself with the dramatical drop in the number of cars and tracks. Forza games have never really been rushed in the past, Forza 3 took a very long time to be developed and it showed, that was a magnificent game. Hopefully Forza 6 has already been started and will continue to be developed for a very long time until it has a large variety in race styles, cars, tracks and an improved drivatar system.

Don't get me wrong. I do love the game. The number of tracks or cars never bothered me. Just the two things I stated. Qualifying and being able to choose the amount of laps. Both these things have never been in a forza game. These things really be the basics of a racing game. All racing in real life has qualifying.
