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

Yeh it's a bit weird how it's tracked :lol: FH2, F6 Apex and FH4 are all tracking certain things correctly and others wrongly or not at all for me. And it seems to be different from person to person (like my Gamerscore stat is tracking okay for FH4. It was the only stat tracked in fact until today!)

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')

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!

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:


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.

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.


Ah no sorry I've got mixed up. Yeah though could take awhile.

If you have a skill point increase car and have the house that gives skill songs for double skill points you can get quite a 500K point skill streaks pretty easily just bombing up and down the motorway, sliding about and passing cars closely.

Now that's weird. They really ought to try and fix it, but so long as it all gets updated eventually and gives out the rewards I suppose they don't see much wrong.

Good shout! I forgot about the skill song perk. I'll pick that up when I'm on next 8-)

I take it you dont have to take the "consumable" skill squares? I havent taken any and my rewards are showing up 2 cars complete.

My ultimate passes havent updated, and my gamerscore has only just updated but is about 50% behind.

Only 550 more points until i up a reward level.

Not as far as I know. You know you can skip the spin animation, right? (Though I realise it'll still take a while to get through them all.)

Have you worked through the first four seasons yet? Once you have, you'll unlock the Clubs tab. Then just search for GRcade.

Clubs are tied to actual clubs now - as in the main Xbox ones. I was able to accept an invite through the Xbox Club - despite having only just started [I think].

Yeh I found that mashing A last night does that :oops: it's a lot quicker now, I got through my spins in about 10 minutes or so. Won about 5 million credits from them too :datass:

They need to reduce the time needed to get ranking, it's a massive undertaking to achieve.

photo mode was on up dpad so thanks for the tip, there is no indication Ive seen in the menus that this is the case but whatever

just up to the winter now but Im playing super casually

Im guessing the R34 is a barn find? cant see it in the buy list, seems an odd omission if not

its a pretty game and fun enough so far, but the handling model seems a little easy to me - I have it set as hard as it will go but it seems a little on rails, especially in the snow driving the rs turbo, handles a bit too eagerly I think

The handling seems to be a lot easier in Autumn and Winter. The on road sections feel pretty similar to Driveclub.

I've stuck everything up on hard now as you get the bonus from that and it doesn't matter if you come 1st, 2nd or 12th in any of the events

It just had a small update. Maybe adding the winter season stuff. But now the frame rate is totally wrecked. I'm rebooting the console to see if it fixes it.
