The one I'm talking about I was thinking all while searching "It couldn't possibly be where I think it is."
That's exactly where it was.

Just saved up 2mil to buy the free travel house. Also included was 10 super wheel spins. Just span them all and made 1.9mil back plus two horizon edition cars, a few more high end cars plus loads of clothes! Not a bad return at all!

Any word on when they’re going to get the online stable? I’m sticking to solo now. Gets really annoying when you’re halfway through a race and lose connection or someone else does.

And have they changed the difficulty rewards? Seems like you gain influence faster by knocking difficulty down rather than up :fp:

UK Charts: Forza Horizon 4 is the fastest-selling game in the series so far

The new game at No.3 makes for happier reading. Forza Horizon 4 sales are actually ever-so-slightly higher than 2016's Forza Horizon 3 - which in an age of digital acceleration, is impressive to see in the physical charts. The Xbox One exclusive was only narrowly behind Assassin's Creed, too.

(MS) "We're also seeing a huge uplift in Xbox Game Pass subscriptions and engagement. These achievements are a testament to the craft and ambition of the latest release of the Forza franchise, the world's biggest racing IP."

I was surprised when I heard an ad on the Radio for it on release day.

Yes me too.

The Online at the moment is highly frustrating, hard enough getting a game, although those Adventures do look novel and I'll admit I haven't tried them yet.

That drift zone near Kingfisher House had better be the hardest one of the game otherwise I'm in for a real stretch of time just trying to three star them all. Was pretty much the only thing I did yesterday, coming so close on a few occasions.
I'm terribly inconsistent at this sort of thing.

Ive just managed to qualify for the league in team adventure. You have to get about 3 unranked adventure games to open ranked, then 10 ranked games before it places you in a league. Its taken me about a week to get in. Its far too a laborious and attritious process to get a game in the first place, and really needs to be refined if this is all reset at the end of the month.

Ive also managed to get to drift zone level 10. Had to three star 7/19 of them - tricky. Im not the best drifter but there are some zones better than others. The Hoonigan focus that i won on a wheelspin came in very handy. I didnt try the formula drift cars, perhaps its alot easier iwth them?

Had the game ask if I wanted to up the difficulty.

Said no then that race it felt like my car was magnetic with every ai banana split hitting me and car was sliding about. Probably coincidental but fuuuck

damn one of the forza rewards for Horizon 4 is 50 car masteries :lol: I pretty much 100% all of the others now as they're easy but that one is going to take forever, maybe never.

I have 1 car fully maxed so far and another 3-4 almost done.

Talking of the vehicle skills, I came across a bug last night. I had 16/25 of the points needed to get the last skill for my Honda NSX. I switched to a lambo during a jump challenge and the car had 16 skills points to spend which I thought was a bit odd. I ploughed them all in to the car and it obviously turns out somehow the game carried my Honda points across. Good because I've nearly maxed out the Lamborghini now, bad because that Honda takes forever to get a skill point and now I am back to 0/25 needed :lol: :fp:

I'm going to try and replicate the glitch so I can use my lambo skill points on other cars as that car has a good skill set to farm points :shifty:

It's not a glitch - you earn points into a central pool and can distribute them into any car you like.

Oh for real? Damn I didn't realise that. In which case I'll just stick to one car. That makes the whole thing 1,000,000 times easier :fp:

Yeah, that's why that vid i posted is a good shortcut - you boot it around the airfield in a skills car and then distribute the points around to fill up cars to unlock cash/wheelspins/xp (i refuse to call it 'influence')

Done already without trying.

You'll be surprised how quickly they add up if you don't buy the 25 point one for each car.

EDIT: Ah yeah, you don't need to earn the points in the set car you want to use them on as you now know :lol:

I'm guessing there is no way for you to make the game spin all of your wheelspins at once is there? It takes ages to spin these strawberry floaters and I have over 100 wheelspins to sit through already :fp:

I'll check that video out. I didn't watch it because I thought it was going to be some dudebro throwing a car around in a field for each car!

Forza Rewards is 50 cars with maxed skills, not 50 skill points right? The game achievement is for 50 points which I have easy enough. I've only maxed 1 car and my Forza Rewards tracker is showing 1/50. Maybe it's just coincidence and it hasn't updated properly.

Yes it is. I've got three completed with it saying three on the rewards page.
Accurate tracking of Gamerscore is still borked, though.
