Basically we had at least 1 highly skilled driver intentionally lowering their skill rank...in order to start in a lower skill ranked lobby...to try and get an advantage. It is a shame that someone would manipulate our system, but they did. Unfortunately for them, it would only work in Round 1. In order to take some of that advantage away, we took away the bonus points for rounds 1 in both series, and lowered the bonus points from 3 to 1. We strive to run a fair series, and we want a close series. We hope these changes will help make for a better challenge for all involved.

I apologize if this comes off as rude, but I hope your not talking about me. I race all the time and my "trueskill" goes up and down with it. I've always said the true skill level in Forza is BS.


Also mar B ond, if you didn't know you can map the clutch button to the "A" button and simply press "X" and "A" at the same time to down shift and visa-versa for up shifting. Easy to get used and works great.
No Mopar...not you! Sorry, I have reworded my post to make it clearer. I would never call anyone out by GT...the guilty ones know exactly who they are.

Mar B...please learn the clutch. Get with me online and I will tell you how to make the "A" button your clutch. Like AAR Mopar said, you simply press "A" and "B" simultaneously to upshift...and "A" and "X" simultaneously to downshift. It's actually very easy to adjust to it, and you will not regret it. The clutch cannot be a cheat....it is built into the game...and 98% of the drivers use it. Saying the clutch is a cheat is like saying a manual transmission, TCS, STB.....or the racing line is a cheat. Adapt to the game...and master it...you are an amazing driver and you would be hell to deal with if you used the clutch!

That's what I thought you meant, I just didn't want people to get the wrong idea about me seeing how I just started racing with you all. Sorry about the confusion.

You guys don't understand. When using the right stick for gas and brake, like I do, it is very difficult to use the clutch. It took me a month to do it well enough to not fry the motor every shift. It is the "claw" method. Very uncomfortable. Mar, I have learned to do it, so can you. I felt it was unfair at first too, I would struggle to keep up even when I was owning everyone in the corners, they would just pull away while accelerating down the straights. Now I use the clutch always, even in R1 cars which it is argued to be slower with the clutch, and I love it. I have gone from a lobby 2/3 driver to a lobby 1 driver after learning the clutch "claw" method.

grrrr....

Post  GLR mar B ond on Wed Feb 02, 2011 4:39 am

thanks Gashi. Some don't read the posts correctly and go bashing. As right stick driver you must shift with shoulder buttons. That's not so easy after some laps. Then there's only 1 setting for it (was 4). Using clutch then requires 3 finger movements on 1 side. That's all. Didn't wanne create a big upset. Just reacted to a closer racing comment. Try my best. See ya next saterday. by the way..thanks for the offer Red.

Yep. Middle finger for clutch, pointer for downshift, thumb for steering on the left hand. Right hand is a little simpler with the pointer to shift up and the thumb to use the gas and brake. This prevents being able to use both the gas and brake at the same time, which is also a disadvantage, but less severe than the clutch issue.

Yeah, I gave that setting a go, didn't really like it though it can be more presice than using the triggers!

Midnite, b0x should get last place points not 24th. He was trying to connect but he did not race. The guys below raced so they should earn more points.

Midnite does the points and he hasn't been on the forum since yesterday afternoon. Please be patient and he will get it fixed.
