Huh, that's pretty weird. It must be a bug then. Even after the patch, I did not experience this. Was it like this even after re-logging, cagey?
its useless concept need to change this
I agree with you Gh0st - that's useless concept.
I got no idea where this is heading to, but that's bad market research. Oh wait - they didn't actually do any market research.
I'm pretty sure no one, and I do mean NO ONE, will play this game if they have to re-invest in their car every now and then. Simply put, this screws up the entire in-game economy even worst then letting the game start with no anti-hack protection.
The way we were before, if you played a lot, grind like a mindless zombie and so on, you get rewarded. By parts, money, fame, mileage and whatever there was to it. But there was a chance for those that didn't played that often to compete as well. Mainly thru events which gave us all chance of winning parts, money, fame, mileage bonuses and whatever else there was to it.
Now if we had our cars for limited amount of time, there would be no point in having a garage to collect your "beauties" in. You'd simple buy one for a week, drive it around, get enough TP to equip it, then break some records with it and toss it away at the end of the week. With this said, no one will bother to buy bling-bling stuff, like decals, vinyls and all the other visual goodies for their cars, because they'll be gone by the end of the week. And those that don't play often, will have a really really hard time even getting enough TP in their cars to equip it. Well, given they have the parts for it, which is highly unlikely.
I'm not sure where G-M are heading with this idea, but I don't like being milked. One of the reason I don't play another racing game which uses a similar purchase model. I really think you guys (G-M staff) should sit the f*** down and have a talk with the old community leaders. Present us with your ideas and business model and we'll tell you what we like, what we think needs change and what you'll have to discard.
It sounds like they're trying to be slick and pull a fast one on us, and expect us to not worry about it. If this doesn't get removed, the GMs can just say goodbye to this community, because nobody wants to play a game where cars become useless.
@cagey: I did not check the car shop when I logged on. I'll check it when I log on again.
old concept on ctracer were good....rit now they need to focus on bugs and game guard...if this is not cured than it ll create same problem as global ctracer...and i was the only person in the field yest. no one was playing same as old game
