    I've just spent about 5 minutes reading that list, and seen tons of people complain about this update. Why? I don't see anything wrong or am I just blind? :sleep:

    last but not least

    Some feel like the FFB and driving feeling have changed. There was also a connection issue in Multiplayer that was introduced with the PS4 patch that may or maynot have been introduced with the XB1 patch as well. I was disconnected from an XB1multiplayer race last night for the first time. That only happened to me 2 or 3 times in my 4 years of league racing with the xbox league here. I'm hoping it will not repeat in my league race today.

    EDIT - I don't think the FFB or handling has changed after the patch. It feels the same as before to me.
