What is "live special events"?

    Hi guys,

    So I've been waiting for the matchmaking element of ACC, which I assume is the "live special events" referred to in the roadmap. If you check the roadmap now it says that release 6 has come out (which it has) and that it includes live special events. I don't see anything live in the special events though, they just appear like the old offline events.

    So my question. Has live special events not actually released (despite the roadmap saying so) or am I missing something???

    I'd also be intrigued by what 'Live Special event' is, is it in build 6? Or something now planned for full game?
  4. By roadmap we would already have the advanced multiplayer. I believe that live Special Events is dependent on the MP.

    Something similar to races organized by rf2 today.

    I would love a developer response to this.

    I get that you may not be able to give details about what live special events is but just to confirm whether they have or haven't been released yet would be enough.

    Broadly speaking it's any special event with an online aspect, such as an online leaderboard. Once MP has caught up, it will probably be expanded to non-single car events.

    Thanks for the reply.

    So does that mean that it isn't multiplayer races (as in people competing in the same server) but only leaderboard offline competition?

    That's a real disappointment if that's the case. Where is the matchmaking and advanced multiplayer that was advertised? Currently all we have is a server browser and that in my opinion shouldn't have been described as "matchmaking" or "advanced multiplayer".

    Hoping I'm wrong...

    So we have had 'Live Special Events' since build 1 :p

    I'd say: wait for it.
    You see there are things we largely talk about: Whatever is in the game right now, (if public or not). Future things that are planned do not belong into that category, no matter how certain or uncertain they are.

    I'd treat this matter differently if the things we actually have would have been discovered and discussed until the end - but I don't see that ;)

    Thanks that gives me some hope!

    Maybe I misinterpreted the first post. Are you saying live special events will include multiplayer races?

    Game is now announced and there is a cryptic press release about matchmaking. Could we ha e some confirmation about what this is please?

    Long time ago I gave up with Kunos giving any info on request. Worst early access feedback loop ever.
