    This sounds bad and does not give me any confidence.
    No tyre wear, in fact tyres "always optomised", whatever that means, no fuel usage, no pit stops, no changable weather, no buying this load of crap.
    Sounds like it is over for us as far as pcars goes. Better get used to acc.

    Yep, just read that myself. Doesn't bode well.

    Yeah, thats doesnt read well....
    I dont get why in a racing game you would take out pit stops... Thats the way it reads, and is a genuinely dumb idea.....

    In terms of league racing, would just be sprint rounds, going flat out with zero strategy (not that the strategy options are particularly wide anyway)

    Might be a few more seasons of PC2 afterall....

    Yep that's a bit weird. Hopefully AMS2 will do a console release for you guys at some point. This will have to be reserved for the occasional fun night, since it's much more similar to NFS Shift than first anticipated.

    Apparently with weather changes the tyres will automatically change to wets! No pit stop required

    So just been in a Q and A for PC3 and can confirm that pit stops are gone.....No interpretation required,
    [MOD] KonanToday at 22:28
    @stucar17 pit stops are gone yes. Weather and livetrack are still in. The other ones i don't know.

    So all the things they added in that were looking great have been shot down by no pit stops.
    Looks like sprint races which im sure we can make work, if the rest of the game is worth it.
    The positives still are
    - They say the physics are as good (who knows)
    - Bigger track list to an already great one
    - More cars added to a good one already - not sure on new classes or additions to classes
    - Tracks updated from the current list
    - Still have 'live track' and weather
    - New livery editor (would have to be pretty special to be better than the GTS livery editor - its a cracker)
    - 'possible' BOP system.... wasnt ruled out in the reply, but could be a yes or no !!!!

    Other things confirmed
    - In Career mode will be a currency system, not too dissimilar to what we get in GTSport. Make money / credits and use it to buy cars and upgrade in career mode
    - Driving line wont exist as it did in PC1 / 2. They have changed the system to use markers on apexes, which can be turned off if the driver wants. GTS has driving line and cones at brake points and apexes, so nothing more than a different way of doing the same thing for those who want it....
    - Car upgrades / add ons including wheels . Meh !

    Things not confirmed
    - lobby size online
    - Damage..... pretty tough to have a 'real damage' model if you cant pit to fix your car ! Could be a model like GTS where damage lasts for a period of time .... Who knows
    - Updates when PS5 lands
    - Replay and Director options
    - Private lobby setting - ability to kick etc
    - App support

    Hopefully the FAQ will be available soon, along with some in game footage so people know whats going to be on offer

    I still hope that it can give the same physics, and good racing....

    Other than the pit and tyre exclusion, everything else seems to be there so it 'might' be ok :unsure:

    @Kart-No-1 weather and live track are still there...

    Will i get it, probably..... Was thinking last night if it can give the same feel, it might just be a case of re-assesing what we have to do to get the best racing. A change in formats is the obvious thing, reverse grids of some sort to mix it up, top 10 reverse grids ??? Who know....
