How do you feel about catch-up?

  1. 1. How do you feel about catch-up?



Recommended Posts

Catch-up is basically an option for the host of a race, which gives the players an ability to catch up to the player first in a race. So basically if you have ever been in first by a massive lead, and everyone catches up even though you have the same car, this is because there is catch-up?

 

Personally, I find it really annoying. I always turn it off, because I feel like it takes up a bunch of the skill in winning a race. Sure, it makes the race a bit more exciting and action packed, but I don't feel like it's fair that if I play a flawless race, that someone can just catch-up because the game lets them...

 

So, do you like catch-up or not?

I hate it. I wish people would join races I host so I would never have to deal with it. It's always on in the races I join.

I prefer mustard.

But honestly, I'm "meh" about it. I usually win either way.

I absolutely hate it. There shouldn't be a punishment for being better than the other racers.

 

It's not giving the losers a fighting chance, it's making the winners fight an impossible battle to keep their lead for any significant amount of time. There's no way such a game changer should be on by default, let alone exist at all.

 

It's nonsense, if someone can't keep up then they should stay at the back of the race and be expected to deal with it.

Voted I don't mind, only because my feelings towards it are dependent on the type of race it's used in.

 

If it's a long point to point race, i'm all for it. If it's a short lap race, i'd rather it wasn't there.

Driving 5 minutes in first position to get smashed off the road in the last corner, because my car nearly stopped moving and let the retard win who rammed his ass into everything he sees?

 

Yup, seems about fair

Pubs? Yeah, leave Catchup on, more exciting that way. But when racing up against dude you know, or on short races, hell no, you have to kick your friends' ass.

Catchup slows the first driver down by a lot. I had a race where I was first the whole time, but my fastest lap was 15 seconds slower than the next guy.

I don't mind catch up, most of the time when I am too far behind it's usually because the asshole in first thinks we're playing bumper cars.

I selected don't mind. It's sh*t in clean races but when with dicks trying to smash you outta the race so their friend can win it helps. I find most of the time even with it on the better racers win just by not as a big a margin.
