Are Sim Racers Gravitating to ACC?

    I love ACC so much. I don't want to drive anything else and I have them all. I'm concerned SIM Racers are ignoring it due to the VR and lauch issues. I know most have been fixed with some VR work needed I read as Im not running VR.

    The rating system is amazing. My only wish is some high level licenses to make it easy to talk about with friends and to help with marketing for ACC. People I talk to that have been testing ACC still dont get how awesome the rating system is.

    Can ACC last and grow to expand to other Blancpain series?

    I really hope so, Its has been a bad launch, and it still has a lot of infuriating bugs. It also apparently suffers from a lack of depth in single player championships (i don't play the championship mode so i don't know). the Multiplayer features are not what many people expected, rightly or wrongly. However the driving experience IMHO is better that any other game out there the immersion is fantastic. Its just going to get better and better. It has more potential than any other game out there at the moment. So to answer your question YES , I think it would make sense to have all of the Blancpain championships in ACC. A few things have to be sorted out first

    I know they are fixing things. For me the driving experience, the sound and the graphics trump all the short term issues. Drive me nuts some of my friends are driving lousy sims over little things when the driving experience is so much better in ACC. No other SIM has real brakes like ACC I could go on. lol

    What people dont realise that KUNOS are good developers.. what kind of developers are around they are golden.. we got to buy ACC for 25€ not 59.99 or premium edition for 89.99 plus expansion pack 59.99€
    Or collectors eddition for 120€ with figurine(i must add that i wiuld buy supoorter edition from ACC with cool car model comming with it :D)

    But on topic. People are getting emotionally attached to damn version numbers.. i read somewhere such a great explaination of version numbers and development i am so sad i did nit bookmark it so i can share it.

    But just because its saying 1.0 does not mean its finished product and everthing will work in it.
    1.0 marks just a milestone and in our case it was 2018 content full release.

    What people also cant understand that just because game hit 1.0 it will not stop developing further.

    Seeing progress AC did from 2013 to 2018 i am so confident and sure Kunos will nail this one also.

    And people should deffinetlly try acc and give it a shoot. And not rely on some 2h playtime steam reviews or youtubers that are crying how they did not get Iracing killer for 25€

    I want it to steal all iracing player base as this has way better physics and graphics

    I have no actual idea about sales figures, but must admit I am somewhat concerned if the game will sell well enough to allow Kunos to provide long time support and further develop the product. I have no skills in marketing etc. but IMO they should have introduced a better structure around MP, so to engange people long term with rankings and better sense of progression. As of now I am concerned it will only be a rather small group of people (myself included) who can appreciate the game structure in its current form on the long term.

    Im in the same boat as yours. This sim is very addictive. In the future with hopefully some usa/asia dlc it will be bliss.

    lol that would be awesome! I'd love to buy a collectors edition with a model of one of the cars with full livery, and maybe a concept art coffee table book! :D
  9. I doubt it will steal many. I think nobody is there for the graphics, physics being better is debatable and the MP structure is much better.

    I also think that all of the development/coding/debugging being done with ACC by Kunos, the bulk of that work can be easily carried over to another series,... ACF2.

    I would not think that Blancpain owns any of that work that was done developing ACC, at least I would not think so.

    I'm surprised no one has taken a run at building a website like iRacing? I could see ACC and AC together with a Moble app for android /IOS. Blancpain could be one of the series.
    iRacing has a good website but low on content and other things and at the price being so high, it's prime to be beaten. I do have a tech, marketing, mfg background and do see tons of potential here for Kunos.

    Triple screen and VR are needed to attract an enthusiast base. They may get there but it needs work right now.

    ....and really needs TrackIR/OpenTrack support to draw in more people. There is a thread on this, but many (including myself) are not playing ACC owing to lack of head-tracker support... This is a real shame for ACC and will limit it appeal to a significant proportion of the customer base.

  14. Nobody has taken a run at making a competitor to iracing because the only reason iracing is even here is due to a billionaire having simracing as his hobby. John Henry had huge $$$ to throw at his hobby. Good luck finding another dev team that has a financial backer that is willing to spend huge $$$ to start the project while not caring if he ever makes his money back.

    Also, it is popular opinion that due to the iracing pricing structure that it is making huge money. As with any business model, if that was the case there would already be multiple competitors trying to get a part of the cash cow.

  15. In my opinion iracing has poor/outdated graphics bad force feedback and racing game physics that leave a lot to be desired. The one thing it does have is a multiplayer, that feel more like a career rather then a game. People can start off as a rookie and work there way up over the years.

    Bought highly polished Forza Horizon 4 back then for 59,99, played roughly 10h (Played tons of h in FH3).
    Bought into buggy/glitchy EA ACC in September 2018 for 25€, played 130h.
    Nuff said.

    I did not realise that John Henry owned iracing. Well, that explains why it is set up with a structured business model. Money attracts more money...

    I think sound, graphics and physics are top of the class what is missing is some kind of achievement in multiplayer. My idea would be to set up competition servers and rating like a career. I would organize it in seasons (first week of the season is in Monza, next one is Brands Hatch ecc...) when all the tracks are completed it starts a new season. At the start of each season you chose a car that you can't change unless you restart your season (with 0 points) or the season finishes to avoid cherry picking the car for the track (and everyone running with the same car). Two standings should be avaiable, current season and overall. Racing more time on the same track (in the same season) should give you points but progressivly less in order to reflect both how much you play but also how well you do. 3 stars on all the tracks and SA>x to join, matchmaking based on overall points and SA.

    True. Never a real update to make the underlying physics as likely as possible. The braking system as used in sports cars, immediately brakes strong, is inapplicable. The tire model is pathetic. Those who criticize the physics of ACC for me should take a tour to learn about the offer of this market.

  20. Dale Earnhardt Jr was also one of the investors that launched it back in the day.
    Fun fact: In the beginning iracing wanted to force drivers to be clean that they considered punishing a 1x with a drive through penalty. Can you imagine?

    The biggest thing iracing got right was the creation of irating. Irating is a hell of a drug. Irating makes the number you receive after a race more important than the experience of the actual racing that took place to achieve it.

    All racing games participation numbers get lower in the Summer, hopefully once the 2019 update drops in the Fall, along with core game updates/upgrades between now and then, the numbers of ACC users will become large enough that some kind of universal MP ranking will be a sustainable option.
