Please open up racing to all regions even if it is not perfect. It's the only reason me and several friends arount the world got the game.
At least give us an options.
I understand that a packed room might not play as good as a room with just 3 or 4 racers. I still want to play with my freinds overseas!!!!!
Region Lock is an easy item. Just unlock it. Let the connection happen. It will be a lot easier to patiently wait for the real fixes while I play with my friends in other regions. It's easy, just let it go. Even if you restrict region free to certain areas or make it a choice of the individual to play lock or unlock region.
For some people a game is simply is not worth playing if it's not with their friends. Isn't that what community online playing is all about?
Before this somewhat useful thread is buried under the mass array of sheer pointlessness above it I figured I better post something to bump it, especially given some of the useful links in here.
Anyway, none of the posts/replies from the devs have covereed any of the following:
1. Glitching in races, whilst you would have thought this was covered in hot lap you never know what adjustments they intend to make. It may be that they alter the reset mechanics for hot lap only. All the posts regarding the issue seem to be hot lap specific.
2. XP series glitch, this glitch means that whilst you remain connected to the race server last place is awarded 50 points for a win and those above him/her earn nothing, highly frustrating after a hard earned win.
3. Podium mechanics abuse, whilst not a glitch or cheat I think it is definitley regarded as an issue and should be addressed.
4. Skill rating glitch, whilst covered and allegedly fixed the problem remains.
EDIT: title fix
