B-spec Driver name selection

Dear Kazunori,

 

My daughter is a massive fan of Danica Patrick (indycar & nascar diver).. 

 

About a 2 weeks ago, while she was at her boyfriends house, she noticed the name D.Patrick pop up as her BF was scrolling names for his driver..

 

She came home strait away, kicked me off my game, & without any hesitation or 2nd thought, retired her LV 40 driver that took her over 7 months to train..

 

My daughter then spent 6.5 hours scrolling through the repeated GARBAGE list of names, with NO success..

  

Over the following 10 days, she spent over 5 hours per day, patiently scrolling thought the same REPETED *****ING CARBAGE, with total faith & belief it would eventually appear, BUT still NO D.Patrick...

 

After more than 60 hours total over 2 weeks, she finally gave up, dissapointed, dejected & angry & now, no longer has any intrest in GT5 anymore..

 

GT5 is the ONLY video game that my daughter has ever liked & we would spend hours playing together on weekends..

 

Now, we don't anymore because you *****ING ***** continue to arrogantly ignore thousands of complaints & requests to create a SIMPLE, TINY, EASY, LITLE PATCH, that won't take more than a day to construct, that allows us to create our own names for our drivers..

 

In my daughters own words..  "***** YOU & ***** YOUR GAME"...

hhhhmmmmm.... maybe you should actually read the responses i left with the admition of over-reacting.. 

 

I did, was just letting you know for next time in case you offend someone who is easily offended, or perhaps even produce an apology to those who you over reacted too.



If you are that easily offended then maybe just maybe you need to stay off the boards.

 

I am not that easily offended, but there are those who are (especially the new guys, who are generally just trying to ask/say something innocent). If I were then I wouldn't have so many posts on here would I?

 

Then, I sugest you actually read about how much we STILL play GT5...

 

Thats nice, but what does it have to do with my previous reply? If anything it would make my advice even more valuable to you since you are actively playing the game and have a higher possiblity of needing to ask another question on these forums.



and this has what to do with his asking a question on the boards?

 

 

But you don't see a problem with RANDOM names like " B.Ong, U.*****, A.*****,..???    This is just a few of more than 50 we've found & listed, so far... 

 

To be honest I don't really care about names like that, and even find some fairly clever. But I would start to get really annoyed if every single name were a curse or illegible. I understand that your intentions would be good, but there are always those who abuse the system and it's the faults of the minority that affect the majority.



what a contradiction, you find them amusing but they would be annoying if they were all that way, interesting. Even more interesting since the names are already set in the game and cannot be changed per se

 

I said SOME, not all, and I only really find them amusing cause they aren't expected with the current system there is. If it were free choice then the names would just be alot worse and just plain aweful, whereas the names that are there are not to that high degree. Sony and PD wouldn't want the bad publicity from having people make their own names, which could contain rude, racist, sexist, etc. remarks.

 

Look forward to finding out who it is..  

 

Currently my favourite driver is Fernando Alonso.

My favourite V8 Supercars driver is Garth Tander and my favourite Nascar driver is Kyle Busch.

 

I see that one of your drivers is a spoiled brat who can only win by wrecking everyone else.

 

Care to give some examples?

 

ANY of the B-spec drivers names can be taken any way someone wants to, just because you might have D.Patrick does not necessarily mean that it stands for Danica does it? A name only means what it means to the person that uses it. IF you get that easily offended by words, you really need to grow a skin my friend cause life is hard and you don't always get your way in it.

 

If you acknowledge that you can't always get your way then why persist with arguing about it? All I tried to do was provide a little friendly advise and a little friendly joke. I am going to move on and you should probably do the same.

 



btw redrkt did you hear that Kimi be coming back? I am pretty excited at the prospect.

however it will leave me a bit conflicted cause I've been a supporter of the #1 driver at Ferrari since schumacher went there, and now all 3 of them could be back on the grid. :Help:

Ayrton is my middle name to by the way and I still think that if you have a problem with the game comment it on gtplanet not here but 99.9% of the game is fine so if you don't like it go grab a *****ty old xbox 360 and put forza and then we will see which game has more issues. My bet is on Forza

Hey auto2moto every day I run an open lobby on GT5. providing a have no homework I get on pretty much as soon as I get home. If you want you or your daughter can feel free to join whenever you like. Most days after school it starts at 4:00 and runs to about 9:00 at night but on weekends I could do it whenever. It is always called WORLD KART CUP and will always be on Kart Space 1. We the move to Autumn Ring Mini and then to Kart Space 2. Usually I get about 12 -16 (a full lobby). Obviously as it gets later into the night you get more internationals joining so that is when I reccommend you to join. 1 week ago I had a full lobby of Germans, Italians, Americans, Spanish, English, Dutch, Canadians etc. So I would love you to enter. Its not an actaul championship but I use that name to get the kids to join. We race the 100 kart old or new because some of the internationals don't have the new DLC.

We have about 5 mins of qualifying then we do a 10 lap race around each track so I am leeting you know it is great fun and I have my mic on so I do a bit of commentating during the races. Sometimes we do fastest first then we might do a reverse grid to mix it up abit. If you join I open to any ideas like if the racing gets to messy penalties might go on wek but never strong.

I still dislike Danica Patrick but I see where your coming from. I just got my 1st B-Spec to level 12 as I dont do much with him yet but I do more now. His name is E.Lorenzo. Now I can have 3 B-Specs and I want A.Senna but after 30mins of searching no luck. It's OK though that means it gives me time to train E.Lorenzo a bit more. In update 2.1 on the 27/10/2011 it now has seasonal events for your B-Spec. I did the hardest 1 which they recommended your B-Spec to be level 30, Lorenzo was level 3. He finished 4th losing 3rd on last lap. I recommend doing them and logging in often as your winning % goes up to a maximum of 200%. Mine is at 200% so my winning credits and XP are massive now thanks to that. I have 11 million credits and nearly level 39 now

 There's TOO much hate here....

 

 

Dear Community,

 

On August 29, 2011, I created this page, so that I could, politely & respectfully, discuss with other players & fans, a feature that I still believe is needed in Gran Turismo 5...  The option to enter your own choice of B-spec Driver name..

 

Unfortunately, @ 10:09am, that same day, I over-reacted & posted an angry, insulting & disrespectfull open letter, to Kazunori & Gran Turismo Franchise...   Thanks to this regretable post, this page has decended into nothing more than place to trade insults with face-less tags, that I believe we would have more fun racing with online instead...

 

I therefore, take full responsibility for the toilet this page has become & in the intended spirit of this page, I make the following, sincere apology...

 

I'm sorry & I apologise, unreserved, to Kazunori, Gran Turismo Franchise, Community Members & Everybody that were & are offended & insulted by my comments made in my posts..

 

I over-reacted, I was wrong & my comments were disrespectful & out of line..

 

I fully retract & no longer subscribe to my negative attitude, opinions & comments, to Kazunori, Gran Turismo Franchise & Community Members, expressed in my previous posts..

 

I hope this apology goes a long way to helping restore this page to the intelligent & entertaining forum it was intended to be..

 

Now, if I may, to the intended reason for this page, with ideas from others, to get the ball rolling.. 

 

I would like to have an option to enter your own choice of name for B-spec Drivers, in addition to the random choice, like helmets & race suits..

 

If not, then how about the ability to send & receive B-spec Drivers.. 

 

Thank You

I'd like to mention a few people..

 

redrkt  - Thank You for your support & for speaking up for me..  You understood exactly what I was trying to say, where I was coming from & never lost sight of the point, no matter how much I lost sight of it myself...    you got it..  

   Thanx dude..

 

King_Nothing6 - You were absolutely right in your reply on August 29 & 30, 2011...   Your polite, insult-free reply posts are the reason she decided to go back to GT5 try again..   The result could not be any better...

   Thanx dude..

 

BERNSY001 - Don't worry dude, I'll never be going to X-Box & Forza Franchise..  I've always had Gran Turismo since the very beginning, because it always has & will be my favourite game franchise.. It's that simple..    I've made a note of the dates you posted for your GT5, World Kart Cup races & hope to make the last two..    My daughter looks forward to racing with you on GT5....  Unfortunately, it won't be until late November at the earliest, as she has to study for her H.S.C. Exams coming up..   

 

wildheart90 - Your reply post on October 26, 2011  was insulting & offensive to both myself & my daughter...  If you had just stuck with your opinion of Danica as a driver, that would've been fine, no prop there...  Your comment though, unfortunately, went on to suggest that my daughter is of diminished intelligence & wasting her time for following & being inspired by a WOMAN in a male dominated sport..

   This, however, was no reason for me to return insults at you & make pointless aspersions & comparisons on your driving abilities...   I'm sorry & I apologise..

 

Cheers,  ^_^

I feel for your daughter my boy was the same trying to find J Button because one of his mates told him it was on there. I too found my own name and some names of other sportsman I have C Gayle (Cricketer) T Henry (Football player or Soccer if from the USA) and I Poulter (Golfer) and the hilarious A Budweiser (Not making it up i will get my boy to do a screen capture and post it.) Hope she finds it.
