The only complaint I have about races and it's a huge one, is f*cking CATCH UP. That sh*t should not even be an option in this game, it's for bads who make mistakes and then get rewarded for sucking. Lead the race for the entire time and then on the last lap, with a few turns left, it's like they all get nitrous, catch up and one inevtiably hits you from behind and spins you out.
That's not how catch up works. People see catch up and immediately start crying without any real idea how it works.
I been in a handful of races where i got spun out early. Catch up was on and I never finished above last or near last place.
Catch up helps people but it's not a miracle worker like idiots complain about when they see it on
This guy knows what he is talking about. Catch up is there to help, but it is not some instant first place maker. Everyone in the race has it, don't blame the guy who won the race for cheating or anything because that is just stupid and ignorant.
I recently made a new character and it is nice to have catch up, especially in races with custom vehicles because my new character has not unlocked any of the upgrades and does not have custom super cars to even be able to compete.
Catch up just evens the odds, the only people complaining about catch up are guys with fully modded cars that want to beat the lower levels.
