5 second rule in race ? Damn...no way

    I can not believe that the 5-second rule also applies in the race! This is absurd! When your opponent sends you out you have to suffer the penalty ... this frustrating as well as ruin all the magic and the immersion of the game, and all in a moment becomes so ... ARCADE Kunos why ... why are you doing this? I do not know about you but I can not run the race after this happens to me ... it's fake ... please remove it, there is also a survey on this and people have made it clear how he feels.

    I would like to say that I do not favor the 5 sec penalty in the AI races currently in EA 0.5.

    I have never in my life seen anything like this in real racing.
    I hope to see proper penalties (drive-through, black flag etc) in the future.
    edit: Where's the delete button? I see that this has been addressed in the .5 thread. Merge?

    You gotta think that even though they implemented it they could be working on a solution which is not ready yet.

  8. Very frustrating. Please remove it.

    Is it not possible to implement in some areas of the track, and to measure throttle and brake application during the off track excursion?

    Unless this is only in the special events mode - hopefully it wont be in the actual full race mode when that is released.

    I do not understand why you have to do as much physical work on graphics, templates, etc. tracked. and then mess it up with such a stupid thing, IA also needs to be improved, if you take the penalty slow down on the track and the car behind you are without him avoid you and then you're still out and still ... ahhhhhrggggg penalty ... I'm really disappointed and angry about this ... it's absurd.

    Yes it has to be removed. Does it make sense anywhere in the sim? I mean if you go into the grass you still loose time lol.

    The only thing Kunos need to do is put a text on screen saying "invalid lap" when going out too much (for hotlapping eg). No need for slowdown, just invalid instantly and keep driving like nothing happened around the track to start timer again at start/finish.

    I'm really hoiping for a Hotfix for the penalty, as Aris said he's not happy with it so why include it in the first place? a bit baffling is'nt it!?

    I propose that as in reality:

    1 warning
    2 warning
    3 stop and go / drive-through
  16. alex72

    alex72 Alien

    Yes for race i agree, but for hotlapping we only need the green light to turn red and say INVALID LAP, and then we keep driving around the track to start/finish to start the green light again (timer) and can do hotlap again.

    I hope the 5 sec penalty becomes optional, don't like it in any event.

    The only excuse i see for implementing the slowdown penatly is, if the players would give themselves better top speed in the hotlap, by somehow cutting the last corner in the warmup lap.

    Yeah maybe. Why not just invalidate the whole coming lap if you do? Could be done. Just need a little more work. :)
