I was reviewing the TA times on up in smoke. I have had 2nd on db for quite a while now. While looking at the times, I noticed that General and Jager had pushed me down to 4th. Of course I needed to get myself back to second. Quaker has held 1st in db for quite a long time with 54:71 and still holds it. After numerous attempts, I finally got back into second with 55.03. I looked at that and told myself "I'm not that far off from Quaker, I should be able to achieve his time". Maybe even beat it?
So, after playing it for a long time, I finally achieved 54:88. I was so stoked about it, however; I got an error message like the one below. I was f u c king p i s s ed!!! but, I said OK, If I can get that time, surely I should be able to do better. And I did, I was able to achieve 54:73. Just .02 thousandths of a sec behind Quaker.
However, low and behold at what happened right after.
Now I'm really f u c king p is sed!!! This s h i t happens to me every d a m n time I do TA. This is why I don't like doing TA. Why does this happen? Do any of you guys experience this? Why has evolution studios pretty much abandon this game? There should be a team in place to help solve these issues with MSA. No company just abandons there product after launch. granted it's been out for about year now, but there is always field data that a company collects to improve and fix issues, especially if you expect people to buy your next product... You should have a QA team in place..
From what I hear is that evolution studios is working on there next game for PS4. If the some of the rumors are true about PS4, I don't expect to be buying PS4 when it comes out. If evolution studios has abandon MSA and will not continue to work on fixing the issues, who's to say that when their next game comes out, they will not do the same thing.
Now, I know I'm venting a little here, but I am definitely holding off on buying your next motorstorm game until I here from others what issues there are..
This is one of the better racing games out there, evolution studios should have a little more pride in helping to improve their product.

First of all, that's an impressive time, hafa!
As for the times that aren't uploading, I've experienced that myself a couple of times, too ... not so often though (around 10 times I think, given that I've improved my times >2000 times I think that's not too bad haha).
I know PAULOBAROCA has got this issue, too, on Car Go MC and RT.
On the other hand, but this is quite an optimistic view, I have improved some of my times a lot because of this issue. For example, when I tried to beat Paulo (and The_Army_General) on Mile High RT, I beat their time by a mere 0,0x seconds, but the time did not upload. I went on and improved my time again, still didn't upload. Eventually I improved again and it STILL DIDN'T UPLOAD! I was really angry but still kept going. Finally I improved again and this time it did upload.
Now I'm 0,7 seconds faster than both Paulo and The_Army_General on that particular combo. I'm still proud of it. Without that bloody issue I wouldn't have gotten that time. So an optimist would say: "the game encourages you to beat Quaker's time "

I definitely agree with both of you. I do notice the freeze as well and the next time I experience that freeze, I will just have to quit and re-enter. I know that I will be able to get a better time. It is just frustrating when you spent quite a long time on the game, and you finally get to that point, then your time doesn't record.
The issues I have with MSA and Evolution, is that, these issues have not been retified since the launching of the product. They launched it, threw some vehicles and a new track at us to make us content, then completely abandoned it.
I am really surprised that Sony is not on their back door telling them to fix these issues. I worked with Sony and many other Japenese companies, and I know how they operate. They will continueously hound you to fix the problems before they launch a product.. At least that has been my experience with them..
I know that Evolution was late to market with MSA, but I would rather them be late and get it right, then put out a product that has so many issues.
But again, this is all just my opinion and I don't work for Evolution, so I don't know how they operate... All I know is that I am looking at it from a customers point of view, in which, most companies that create a product do.. Or suppose to do..
It's all about the user experience...
OK, so, know that I'm done venting and I will just have to beat Quakers DB record. I so close, I can taste it.

I am a TA Whor*, I have done all the vehicles many times over. And I have had the failed to comunicate only a handfull of times. The problems I was having were the game freezing and locking up during TA forcing a hard restart. and I couldn't download ghosts. But as VinnieSASAcucumber said I deleted my TA data and everthing has worked fine since then.
