  • I get it, I really do. Michael warned me immediately what my prescence and topic may draw in by way of trolling. What I dont really get is that I am seeing much more explicit language littered through a myriad of threads. You're monitoring me closely, which I also get. But Robert, some of your most resent edits are a tad confusing when looking at what is directed towards me by Fandom User 120.20.181.62 . Thats also fine, as 120.20.181.62 ostensibly wants to get any reaction from me. Likely hoping the ban-hammer will fall on me.

    • The language is foul throughout. I totally don't have the time resources to re-read that same thread over and over. Seriously wanting to lock it as there's nothing more that can be said. As you can see, you're still here. Completely don't object to your line of communication, you know the limits. Users, especially anons have no influence on if/when someone is banned. You're invited to use the report / comment script as the next guy. Just stay on topic and don't let personal jabs trick you into the same. I know that's not why you're here, ok?

      Just to play devil's advocate here. The admins are volunteers. They do not have the time to monitor every post that gets put up here and they rely on the community to be a) civil and b) flag things for them that cross the line. And of the users willing to flag issues, there may not be enough of them to catch everything illicit. I have seen things in posts from a few years ago that slipped through the cracks. This is a very busy site, so without a professional staff of moderators, that is to be expected.

      Also, you have kind of painted a hulking green Bullseye on your back with regards to admin attention, and it isn't positive. I tried to change the course of your post by asking about what you learned about the underlying physics of the game that could benefit all of the user's here.

      What we all want the admins to have time to focus on is news on new content and turning that data into helpful and usable data as quickly as possible. We also want them to have time to work behind the scenes to improve usability, create new tables, etc. Having to put out flame wars takes away from the limited time they have to produce that value added content.

      Michael likely will not ban you or let you be banned, as his philosophy seems to be that will only provoke an even worse iteration of the user. If you can circumvent FMEA, how easy would it be for you to get around an IP ban here?

      However that doesn't mean you should take advantage of that. You have made your point, and for the people that pay attention to the forums, they get your position. However, as far as we know, none of the regular contributors are FM or EA employees, so I am not sure what more you hope to accomplish carrying out this crusade here. Most of the users on this site are oddly middle aged. They are in their 40's, 50's and 60's. Maybe they have families. Maybe they have some tech skills, but they aren't the target demographic to form an Anonymous Collective to take down FM/EA. They bitch and moan because that is what old people do, but we don't have enough fire to want to burn the house down.

      So you can continue tilting at windmills or you can let this topic drop. It is up to you though. You could very easily click Unfollow on your post and you will stop getting notifications about it. Let people post what they will and ignore them. You would probably have a good amount to offer to the site if you went back to being Bruce Banner.

  • You uploaded the FERRARI FF instead of the 812, so it was pointing Car Article was pointing to the incorrect car.

  • Could you make a post like Graham has done that notifies everyone that says that the Balance of Power entry ends in less than 23 hours. I had the clock wrong.

  • Thanks a lot for the tips man, truly helpful. I need all the help i can get. From the way you explained it each car behaves differently and there’s no short way around it but learn each one’s strengths and limits. But the difference now is at least i have a clue on how to approach the game on a different level and settings than i used to play it before.

    Appreciate it very much 🙏 kudos to you dude.

    • After practicing without assists, events that require fastness such as speed snaps and time trials, I've migrated to steering high, no brakes or TC. But when you absolutely gotta cut across the grass, any assist will throw you out. Have fun, it really is.

    • I bet it is. Just when i thought i hit a dead end now i’m excited to play again with my newfound knowledge. Awesome

    • I always have to smile when I read the word "driving". Driving is something you do with a real car. This is fake racing 1! ;-)

      Real cars are becoming more fake and fake every year with all computers in, that just want let you crash if you decide so...:) "real" cars were 30 years ago, like my volvo 940 from 1991.

  • This is where FM's lack of consistency screws us. Even though all five Mercs are under the Mercedes Benz section of the Manufacturer Select screen, the Mercedes-AMG GT3 and Mercedes-AMG A 45 do not have Benz on there showcase photos.

    We have a broken link on the Cars screen because of this.

  • Game Discussion

    Anything related about the content of Real Racing 3 can be discussed here!

    But it was more a social type thing about the game, share your encounters with Dr. Perriwinkle, which is a challenge, so I didn't put it on main discussion.

    It is absolutely not off topic.

    I don't know, I don't care anymore. The bitchiness is all too exhausting.

    While I've always said sticks and stones may break my bones, words will never hurt me, exploits help us all. Who and when was it decided we carry Electronic Arts water and not share exploits? Several years ago I learned here of a detailed exploit involving cloud saves in special events that got me well into four figure gold, a stash that transformed my game play. Without that trick I probably would've given up this game in frustration long ago. Probably a good overall thing for me as a citizen, but EA would not be getting 190 Skinner box-ian clicks from me. If no exploits was an admin group decision, it should be revisited, if it's a dictat from suits at Fandom to protect another soul sucking corporation and their gang of lawyers, I guess there is nothing more to say. The beauty of this wiki is it's openness.

    • Not an admin Decision, it was decided by the core group who created this wiki for reasons beyond the scope of your citations. I fail to see why you would admit to taking advantage of exploits, brag about it here, and actually claim to enjoy the game longer when you stopped playing the day you stole your first asset. That's not fun and the wiki is based on supporting the game the way the devs intended for it to be played. To this end I support the people who developed this wikis decision to stifle exploits.

    I feel it is a personal attack about another user and not about the general tenor of the thread. Also moving that thread to Off-Topic did not help and should probably be locked as it is in a death spiral.
