Help with upgrading cars

Recommended Posts

Warning: extreme whining ahead...

 

Why in the world is car upgrades locked by wins instead of rank? That basically means there's no hope of getting these upgrades legitimately for those of us who are late to the party.

 

Think about it; my Entity with standard upgrades available with no wins has no shot against another Entity with upgrades available with 20 wins. Since I'm currently rank 89, any random race will pair me with someone who has more upgrades than I do. Catch-up doesn't work; it helps them more than it helps me.

 

This is a hopeless uphill battle to win enough times to get to the point to where I can compete with fully modded cars. If I could beat fully modded cars, then I wouldn't need the upgrades in the first place! It's just one big vicious cycle.

 

The only way I can see myself getting these upgrades any time in the next four years is if I get someone to purposefully hand me racing wins over and over again. What else can I do here?

 

Ok, rant over....

Host races with custom cars turned off. Believe me, a lot more people play with bone stock cars than you think.

if you have a friend you can host the race and trade wins...

 

i created this short race called W Exchange, which is a 30seconds max type of race which would make it super quick to exchange Ws with a friend.

I thought it would be a prob to...but I've had about 4 diff characters and the first thing I do is go for those 50 race wins....takes about a day or two even if you play people with modded cars...you can win...other people suck at driving sometime you know?

Yeah, alternating wins sounds good all around. My psn is pwam. I'll be on tomorrow. Just so tired of not having access to the upgrades, which would really help during missions as well. I'll start adding people then.

If it would truly take you 4 years to win 50 races, then racing clearly isn't for you.

Yah, I'm in the same boat. I tried a few random races and got tired of the ramming... I might start racing more with no-contact but the problem of lack of upgrades still presents itself. :(

OP's argument is invalid.

 

With slipstream, catch-up and cheating in this game, a fully customed car makes no difference in terms of winning a racing.

Once again, I don't know why custom visual mods aren't on by default. I.e. Use your custom car, but be forced to use stock performance.
