Methods to slow bots down

The methods seem to change from event to event, others are fixed goals, so bot management doesn't work, in them.

Start with the best method, watch the bot times are reducing, if retry stops slowing / lowering the bots try continue and re-enter, go down the list and try each one in turn.

  1. As soon as the red light turns green, pause, quit and retry. (nil car damage)
  2. As soon as the red light turns green, pause, quit, continue and re-enter (nil car damage)
  3. As soon as the race starts cross the start line, wait for the timer (in Endurance and Elimination events or come 4th in Drag Race) to run out. (low car damage)
  4. As soon as the race starts pass the last place car / position (in Endurance and Elimination events) then stop and wait for the timer to run out. (low car damage)
  5. Finish the event in a very slow time / distance / speed. (medium/high car damage)

More details per event:

Track Recommended method to slow bots Damage Taken
Autocross Each time you run an Autocross event, set a slow time of of 4th or less, either retry or continue and re-enter. If you retry ignore the bot's names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race, you will notice, after each time of running, the target time is increased. If continuing doesn't increase the bot's time try repeating and vice a versa.

Do not set a low time at the line, tilt B will give better control to coast before the line, if you are too quick or brake and wait at the line, smashing the time will increase the AI.
Minimal
Cup,
NASCAR
& Formula E
As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter, if you retry ignore the bot's names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race. Also ignore the bots times on the final screen too, they are based on an average lap time, as you quit their times are based on a standing start, as an average. Instead use the times as a guide, with each retry or continue the bots times should increase. If continuing doesn't lower the bot's time try repeating and vice a versa.

OR If you have a broken car run the race a few times, each time you lose you will still get R$ and Fame, place 4th or less, repeating or continuing and re-entering will lower the bots.

Once ready to go, get to 1st place as quickly as possible and try to slow the bot's down, either spin them out or park in sharp bends / chicanes and stop them passing. By setting a low time, but still coming first, it's still possible to still lower the AI of bots, think about a Time Trial time, if you set a set a slow time it lowers the AI.

In case of Formula E, keep driving until your battery goes down to zero and let the bot behind you approach you as you cross the finish line without overtaking you.

Minimal /None.
Drag Race Start the race, press go and leave the car is first gear, do not click repeat, as this will repeat the current race, against the same bot, instead choose continue, then either retry or continue and re-enter. You will see the opponents will change to lower ones.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a fast time, instead use the gears to slow the car, once passed the bot go up through the gears, but watch the bot doesn't speed up / close the gap, or if close to the line go down a gear to brake.
Minimal
Elimination Elimination events are one of the best opportunities to lower the bots AI, deliberately lose a few times, do not move at the start (Tilt B), wait for the 20 second timer to run out, then repeat or continue and re-enter. You will see the opponent will change to lower ones. If you retry ignore the bot's names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race.

Once ready to go, get to first place and slow the bots as per the cup event.
None
Endurance Endurance events are one of the best opportunities to lower the bots AI deliberately lose a few times, change the controls to Tilt B, when the lights go green do not move, wait for the timer to count down the 60 seconds. Either retry or continue and re-enter. If you retry ignore the bot's names, that splash up before the race, they will be changed at the end of the race. Note the distance is reducing each time. If continuing doesn't lower the bot's distance try repeating and vice a versa. It's possible to get all 7 bots distance to 1.0mi.

Another point, the online and offline bots can wildly vary on Endurance races, especially with fiends distance'. It's normally much better to race Endurance races offline, before going to the Endurance event go offline (aeroplane mode), if you've already started an Endurance race online, exit back to the main menu, if your logged into FB / G+ / Weibo, goto settings and logout, then force close, go offline and relaunch RR3, bots should now be offline ones.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a good distance, instead once passed the 1st marker, park up (tilt B) and wait for the timer to count down.
None
Head To Head As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter. Repeat multiple times, ignore the bot's time on the final screen, it is based on an average lap time, you can use it as a guide that the bot's time is reducing.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a good time, instead once in 1st place, use the same technique as cup events, slow the bot down. Quite often a single bot will not push you once stopped, so you can easily hold it up for 20 seconds, then go for it. Wait at the line to reduced the time set, but still win.
1 lap of damage /None
Hunter As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter, repeat multiple times, each time you repeat the distance to the 1st place will increase.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a good distance, instead once passed the 1st place marker, slow down and maintain a small distance advantage ahead, when near the line slow to reduce the distance, but still win. It's also possible to spin out the NISSAN SILVIA (S15) to reach 1st, but be careful not to set a top distance. Final point, the NISSAN SILVIA (S15) can be on a different section as track from you, e.g. If 1st place marker is 1,000 yds behind. The NISSAN SILVIA (S15) could be going flat out down a straight while you’re in a hairpin or chicane, so the 1st place marker is going 1,000 yds behind the NISSAN SILVIA (S15), but travels at the same speed so doesn't slow for the chicane! The worst tracks have chicanes before the finish line, like Spa or Le Mans, learn from any losses, track knowledge will help in future events, sometimes waiting by the line is better, but be aware your stopped and 1st place marker could be going 120 MPH.
1 lap of damage /None
Time Trial Set a slow time, in a Series this event's cup does not count towards continuing your race career (i.e. it does not unlock the next Series). However it does count towards completing 100% of the Series.

Running a time trial with a broken car will therefore take no damage and lower the AI of bots.

Note: If you play against friends do not be tempted to upgrade your car and set faster times, as this will increase the AI of bots, you could always do this once you've bought all cars :)
1 lap of damage /None
Speed Record As soon as the race starts, pause, retire, confirm, either retry or continue and re-enter. Note the bot's time is reducing. If continuing doesn't lower the bot's speed try repeating and vice a versa.

Once ready to go, don't undo the lowing work by setting a high top speed, brake as soon as you hit 1st place's speed.

If you're still struggling to reach first place, the start finish straight is normally the longest straight, you can do a U turn and drive the wrong way around the track, so once around the last turn, do another U turn, and blast down the straight, with all assists off, it doesn't matter if you fly off track at turn one. If the start/finish straight isn't the longest, you can still use the no assists method to hit the top speed, again it doesn't matter if you fly off track. However once you reach 1st place brake, so you don't increase the AI of bots. In special events challenges, there is quite often a no off track clause to stop this technique, forcing you to upgrade to hit the required speed.
Minimal /None
Speed Snap Speed Snaps are the same "parts of tracks" as Autocross, except you must hit a top speed at the line so set a top speed of 4th or less, the lower the better, then either retry or continue and re-enter. Note the top speed's are reducing each time. If continuing doesn't lower the bot's speed, try repeating and vice a versa.

Once ready to go, do not set a high top speed at the line, tilt B will give better control to feather the throttle once at the 1st place' speed, this takes a bit of practice, smashing the top speed will increase the AI.

Cloud Save / Restore

See the Firemonkeys website for full details on cloud save:

Firemonkeys.com.au Cloud Save FAQ

Firemonkey wrote:
Real Racing 3 automatically uploads your save data to the Cloud Servers once every 12 Hours. This means that if you have lost your save data, you can easily restore your previous game progress (including your purchases) and also transfer this save data between devices using the Cloud Save feature.

During events you can use the Cloud Save and Restore feature to your advantage. Before you start every event, manually do a Cloud Save, if you lose do a cloud restore, this will save a long service after the longer, endurance, cup and NASCAR events.

Once you win do another cloud save before you continue the next event, see the FAQ on Firemonkey's website:

It is very important to wait for the screen to display last updated seconds (or minutes) ago. If you have a message stating backup failed, wait another minute, a wheel will turn in the bottom right corner, the message will show last updated seconds (or minutes) ago and Backup to Cloud button will be greyed out too.

If backup still failed, return to the login screen, log off, wait 10 seconds and log on once more, click continue, wait 30 seconds for the login to complete, then try to backup once more.

If you still have problems: log off, then turn aeroplane mode on, wait 10 seconds, turn aeroplane mode off, wait 30 seconds for the wifi to reconnect, login, click continue, wait 30 seconds for the login to complete, then try to backup once more.

The final thing to try, force close the RR3 app, then with the Wifi on, relaunch RR3, then try to backup once more. If this still doesn't work, the FM server is probably having problems, again.

You can also use this technique to save on spending with gold, for example if you want to spend 1 gold on the mechanic, if you win, the mechanic will be used and the car condition will be maintained, but if you don't come first the gold is lost and the car condition will be reduced, if you cloud restore the car will be returned to it previous state and the gold spend (or even free mechanic) returned.

Note: Before you cloud restore, it is important to login into the same Social Profiles you had previously connected to Real Racing, when cloud saving. Especially if multiple Social Profiles are used!

What is farming?

As Icon Gold is the bottleneck currency, one method to earn Icon Gold is by levelling up with fame, this can be done by repeating the top race possible over and over, normally paying for just the Fame agent.

What is the best car to farm the 10 lapper EK with?

User:RR3 Michael P wrote:
Any of the three LMP1 cars can reach and win the 10 lapper, including the 919, (the 911's can't).

...either PR93.0 with all three cars or PR94.0 on one LPM1 cars (the 919 is cheapest in Icon Gold spend)...

See RR3 Wiki:Upgrades Section Porsche#Porsche 919 Hybrid (2014) for the upgrades with PR, the target is PR94, as a guide Upgrades Strategy For 100% Completion requires PR 95, -3 Engine FFU (from fully upgraded). So as as long as the last three engine upgrades are not completed, choose any of the others until PR94 is reached. This will allow enough of the races to be completed, with just the 919, to reach the 10 lapper, then enjoy :)


RomGuyony wrote:
Depends what your goals are: if you plan to get all cars eventually, you may as well acquire the 919 with Showcase Discount (760 Icon Gold) to run the 10-lapper regularly or get the R18. If you get all the cars, you'll be able to reach the last tier, but I'm not entirely sure how far you can get with just two cars and no Icon Gold upgrades.

If it helps, here are strategies for PR:

  1. PR:93.0
    1. Audi: (+1 Tires & Wheels FRU) for 65 Icon Gold
    2. Porsche: PR:93.1 with only R$ upgrades
  1. PR:94.0
    1. Audi: (+2 Engine, +1 Suspension, Brakes & Tires & Wheels FRU) for 355 Icon Gold and R$717,300
    2. Porsche: (+1 Body, Suspension & Tires & Wheels FRU) for 90 Icon Gold
  1. PR:95.0
    1. Audi: (-1 Engine & Drivetrain FFU) for 855 Icon Gold and R$2,331,100
    2. Porsche: (-3 Engine FFU) for 258 Icon Gold and R$269,000

EDIT: With your 2013 RSR and an R18 maxed with R$, you can reach Tier 18, with your 2013 RSR and a 919 maxed with R$, you can reach Tier 19, which can also be reached with your RSR and an R18 upgraded to PR:93. With the RSR and either the R18 or 919 upgraded to PR:94, you can reach the 10-lappers, meaning (just in terms of Icon Gold and in your particular situation) the R18 would cost 355 Icon Gold, while the 919 would cost 850 Icon Gold. Although the 919 can sometimes be picked up for free in Road To Le Mans... Plenty of different variables, as you can see.

EDIT (2): If you got the 919, you could also pick up the R18 with no extra cost in Icon Gold, meaning you wouldn't need to upgrade the 919 and could reach the 10-lappers for 760 Icon Gold (still more expensive in that case than just the R18 upgraded to PR:94


User:RR3 Michael P wrote:
...answering a question on Strategy For 100% Completion...

It depends on the question: Which car is the cheapest to purchase in Icon Gold to reach to 10 lapper? Or which is the best strategy for 100% completion?

RomGuyony is correct, to get 100% completion the player need all LMP1 cars, the cheapest one to upgrade and complete the PR95 events is the Porsche 919 Hybrid (2014). This does mean the player has to purchase all the cars to complete the showcase events to get 100% in Endurance Kings! Therefore if the player’s goal is to complete 100% in every event, then the best strategy is to upgrade the 919 and don't upgrade the others with Icon Gold, especially if the 919 is won for free, it’s only 258 Icon Gold, if the player has to buy it, it’s a further 950 – 20% showcase = 760 Icon Gold

However, if the player cannot afford the 919 the Audi R18 e-tron quattro (2014) is the cheapest, in Icon Gold spend, @ 320 Icon Gold to PR94, to reach the 10 lapper. However thinking logically it's wasted Icon Gold to then upgrade the 919. RomGuyony's strategy assumes the other LMP1 cars are not already upgraded with Icon Gold. If the player’s goal is to quickly reach the 10 lapper and the player can’t afford the Porsche, the Audi is an option, the player can still reach 100% at a later time, but will cost slightly more in Icon Gold in the long run, not taking into account the longer time the 10 lapper has been run and Icon Gold gained by the player every time the player levels up. Don’t forget every time the player levels up Icon Gold is awarded, the player will need to calculate their best strategy, depending on their Icon Gold

Is it possible to reach 100% without spending real money?

Read the following forum post on the subject: Is it possible to actually finish without paying?

Do slowing the bots strategies work across races and series

Clsj35 Asked, on the Time Shifted Multiplayer (TSM) page:
I'm new to this game - only been playing a few weeks. with a fully upgraded Z4 sDrive (PR30.7) it took me several attempts at the final amateur event in street-spec skirmish, which only has a PR requirement of 23. after reading this, i'm sure i was getting a fast bot draw as i have upgraded my cars pretty quickly and was killing it in the earlier races.

so, now my question - do these strategies work across races and series? for example - can I go back and tank a bunch of races I've already won in amateur and slow the bots down in pro/am?


92.195.33.50 replied:
No - each series like Street-Spec Skirmish in Amateur or V8 Naturals in PRO/AM and so on has their own KI... ;-)

The Target is too High, How do I Reduce it?

When the speed or time or distance is too high or fast or long, there are several things that can be done to reduce the target

Make sure you cloud save before you start and after a handful of failed attempts try a cloud restore and retry the next method. Sometimes the AI is still reduced after the restore.

  • Try offline - if you've been online, you must do a force close too.
  • Try online - sometimes the AI target is different.
  • Try repeat, repeat , repeat, again lose by a big margin, don't come higher than 4th.
  • Try loosing by a big margin, but don't retry, instead complete and then re-enter the race - this takes more time but works.

Sorry this takes so much time, but the AI will reduce. With a cloud restore it's quicker than a long service!

For example, I tried 11 times to reach 1st place:

The Game / Le Mans Keeps crashing

If you are having problems loading Le-Mans: Le Mans is the biggest data track to load, close the game, go off line (aeroplane mode), try a complete showdown (hold the power for 10 seconds, I think), then start back up, launch the game and turn the Heads-up Display (HUD) off. This helps on my Hudl.

I read a post suggesting using the RR3 Graphics app (AKA RR3 GFX) available from the Google Play Store, (then automatically updating it from their website). The poster advised Le Mans used to crash, but when the graphics is set low, using this app, it loads and plays fine:

You can start a ticket through "support" in the game. Have to press gear icon, then the info icon.

We really should write the solution to this down somewhere (if we have I'm sure Michael will point to it shortly).

There are a number of things you can do, it's not an exact science and FM keep changing the rules but the options to remove team and TSM players are different:

Removing Team players:

  • Make sure you are online
  • Log out of all social media in the game (facebook and/or google usually)
  • Go into Endurance Champions (but not the event)
  • The team mate icons should have gone
  • Go offline (I go into flight safe mode)
  • Go into the event (you should get only AI bots)
  • You can now go back online and log in if you want but this will allow teammates back into the event when you finish.

If this doesn't work then force quit the application, clear your cache and restart before following the process again. If this still doesn't work then there is one last thing to try:

  • Cloud save
  • Uninstall RR3
  • Install RR3
  • Cloud restore
  • Now follow the process above and you should be fine

Good luck

Joined a team made up of 18 Elite players all level 200+. This led to having up to 6 (yellow) team member bots during farming in EK, mainly driving fully upgraded TS40's with very superior driving skills, making every farming 10 lapper something of an adrenaline boost. Having to pit up to 5 cars several times proved to be detrimental to my farming efficiency (and my health).

Found a quick and dirty fix.

Quit the elite team and joined a team of new players (16) all level 50 and below.

Took me 3 minutes, and afterwards farming was as easy as never before.

thank you JP you saved the game for me. I joined a team and wound up with 5 bots in the Le Mans farming event I use that were fast enough I couldn't catch them they don't even have to be all that fast since they start in 1st through 5th and you start in 22nd rolling start with the field already spread out by 100s of yards/meters The lead has at least a minute advantage on you that's a lot to make up. I thought I'd add that I used your idea of joining a different team so I searched by typing in an A to the search and the first team I found had 1 person at level 29 I joined and the faster team bots were gone, in fact there wasn't even a bot from the new team. I was back to where I was before my team experiment. Whew, thank you JP and rr3 wiki

Here's the current (8-15-2017) way to quickly purge TSM bots for those harder than heck races- no quitting your fav team or anything:

  • While connected to the internet (WIFI, Cellular, etc.), start Any event. As the race starts, but can be before the starting lights countdown, push pause.
  • Go to settings (the gear icon), an log out of all social logins.
  • Put your device in Airplane mode.
  • FC (Force Close) your game.
  • While still in airplane mode, launch RR3 again and start any race. Now the TSM bots are gone.
    • At any time, you can take your gadget out of airplane mode and re-login to your social network to restore your team membership. Until then, you will win the races as anonymous, but the results will still count when you log back in.

This method has worked for many people. I think there are award issues with running not logged into social stuff, but who cares- you're advancing now with only built-in bots! Happy racing. Leave a message on my wall if it doesn't work. We'll see what we can do to help.

How do I reset my ad I.D.?

Example question: How do I reset the ad I.D. so I can get more ads to speed up upgrades, servicing, and GC/R$ opportunities?


Powerup777 reply:
There are two platforms to consider the method for resetting ad I.D., one is Apple's IOS, and the other is Google's Android operating system. Since Android is more subjective to the mass different devices in use, the instructions may be different by device. So we'll tackle the more uniform IOS first. At the time of this writing, I'm using IOS 10.2 for iPad Air II. Most IOS versions that are kept updated, will be similar.

IOS:

  • From within RR3, the gear icon expands the options, the far right side click the Information icon. In Help and About, you must Enable Usage Sharing to YES. Selecting NO will produce unwanted results. Exit FC the game.
  • IOS settings, select the Privacy on the left, then on the right, scroll down and select Advertising.
  • If the slide switch Limit Ad Tracking is green enabled, disable that. Undesired results such as few or no ads will result if you Limit Ad Tracking.
  • Right under that is a blue text selection Reset Advertising Identifier. Touch that text and answer the pop up dialog to Reset Identifier.
  • Re-launch RR3 and enjoy a new round of commercials to speed your processes and GC/R$ colletion. Repeat as necessary.

Android Kitkat and above (Note: quoted from ghacks.net):

  • From within RR3, the gear icon expands the options, the far right side click the Information icon. In Help and About, you must Enable Usage Sharing to YES. Selecting NO will produce unwanted results. Exit FC the game.
  • Once all the apps are displayed on your screen, open Google Settings on your Android device by tapping on menu and then on Google Settings.
  • Locate and tap on the Ads menu under Services.
  • Tap on "reset advertising ID" on the new page. The page lists the current advertising ID on the same page.
  • Confirm the reset when the confirmation prompt is displayed. Once you reset the advertising ID, a new ID is displayed immediately on the same page.
  • Similar to IOS, from the Ads screen, do not Opt-out of interest-based ads as well on the same page. This tells apps not to use the advertising ID for tracking purposes and will cause RR3 to not give you as many, or any ads.
  • Re-launch RR3 and enjoy a new slew of ads. Repeat as necessary.
