I entered into the photo comp on forza 4. The pictures that won were just generic italian supercars in very unimaginative pictures. I am talking like super basic they just paused the game took a photo of the car's in the bernese alps and turned it in.

I saw the rest of the entries and out of the first 50 pictures I could pick out 30 pictures that were way better than the 5 that won.

GG Turn 10 you just showed everyone that they dont really judge anything and just pull winners out of a hat.

It's true that they do select random pictures with no real quality.

Compared to other collector edition games out there, I think Skyrims is way overpriced for what you get. (Which is almost nothing)

Is it even necessary to pre-order Skyrim? I'm not, lets hope that idea doesn't backfire in my face this weekend.

yeah, it never hurts to pre-order. I did for FM4, only to find when I walked in they had ~3 on the shelf. Granted I was given one from behind the counter since I pre-ordered, but alas, there were "extras" of the LCE version there.

Just hit level 100 last night. Haven't been playing as much this past week, which is OK. Finished the 10 seasons, now I'm just going through the event list doing whatever I already have cars for. Also doing lots of Rivals and Hot lapping on the leaderboards. Good times.

Grats minimaul.

I tried getting into the top 1% without using cheese cars like the dodge superbee, dart and the javeline. seems like turn ten really F'd up on that end. Which they acknowledged some cars are broken and should not be outperforming cars of the same rank by a full 10 seconds or more effortlessly.

So far I only managed a personal best of being in the top 4%. The American cars are pretty broken by having high horsepower to begin with but being classed very low when in reality a decent driver can do a couple mods to make it handle decently enough so that it blows away the competition.

it is mostly C, B and A class races that this problem occurs. Which is sad because those are my favorite categories to compete in. But hey I guess so long as I dont look at the leaderboard I can actually enjoy the game, I just want some people to regularly race against sometimes.

When forza first dropped I played rivals into the top 100 for the challanges I did. Then when when more people got the game and my number kept dropping I was like eff it. On top of that I was a millionaire and I got tired of tweak tuning to drive the same laps over and over. I'm sure after I do all the season play and events I'll come back to rivals, but right now I'm having too much fun with my 86 toyota trueno.

Btw MW3 is teh sux and BF3 is where I reside. Hit me up, EnderX2.

One way or another there will always be cheese cars/leaderboard cars. Whether it's because they are glitched/broken or because they are ridiculous to drive/etc it will always happen. Ignore the top spots on all the leaderboards and join a Club or get a bunch of friends that play. All I do is go to "Friends and Club" and try to beat everyone on there. Between all the club members and my friends that play there's always some good challenges or people to try to beat. It's more fun playing with friends or groups of people you know than in Pubbies. Pubbies are horrible and should be avoided at all costs.

The Dart is gltiched, that's why it's a leaderboard car, especially on the short tracks. Muscle cars start with high power to begin with, hence muscle cars. The PI system is worlds better than before and it's so much better to play now with FM4 than with the AWD (PI) dominance like in FM3. Now any/all AWD cars, swapped or otherwise aren't automatically leaderboard cars. So you can actually be competitive with 2WD.

It's not a perfect system and it never will be, but it is vastly improved and there will always be cheesers using cheesy/gltiched cars to win. Not really any different than shotgun spam, or flak spam, or 'nade spam, or roxspam, or spawncamping, hyruoken spam or whatever other spam/bs tactics pretty much every game has, had and will have. Find good people to play with and it's a ridiculously awesome game (as are the other ones).

I race F through A class. Only S to R1(X) if I have too.

continuing on that note I broke into the top 1% of B class drivers now I am happy. Also I havent joined a club in game. looking for a fun group of drivers to keep me busy, I am not playing WOW as much because there is nothing to do once you killed the latest and greatest boss until the next one comes out.

Now if I could just figure out how to make some real nice artwork in game for my cars. Want to do a white car with a blue angel paint job. Do you know how some people make their designs that feature pictures?
