MP is nearly dead....why not release more content?

    ....this should inspire people to play again, but atm, it's close to pointless trying to MP{the basis of this game}.

    Why not wait until the final release then? As you well know, rF2 is currently a beta. Making and releasing new content rather than concentrating on the base sim would be pretty stupid, don't you think? Finish the basics first, sort out content later.

    So the point of the lightweight content is to alienate people?
    It seems to be working effectively.

    They said they will probably release one build a month. And slowly add the remaining content also. And the Beta isnt out yet for a month also..
    All that info was available before the start of the Beta period so you could have know.
    Next build we probably get the Clio Cup, Nissan GTR and 370, Daytona and updated Mills.

    I have to be honest and admit I am quite disappointed by ISI's attitude towards RF2.

    They have had an immense amount of feedback, and so far have done very little to change some fairly simple things in the game other than provide a way fo explaining the stupidly over detailed way of installing and paying for it!

    Now, I love the basic format, but (and I hate to do this) when you compare it to CARS where you are getting regular updates and news it does not stand up too well!

    Again, I prefer RF2, it more more solid, more sim based. But you cannot argue with the fact that they have just released it and done nothing. No updates, very little news.

    A bit poor, but that is because you have a very similar build to compare it against.

    I'm sure thigs will happen, and as I say the basic game feels better and more solid.

    Its a beta, the last thing i think they would be worried about is how much content there is for mp.

    I think ISI is doing a great job with rFactor 2.
    They interact well with the community and collects bugs which they should.
    Reason for them not correcting them so fast is that they probably wants to do it with as few updates as possible and sort out as many bugs they can with each one of them.

    Man you are stubborn, you cant even see how much this is benefiting the final version of the game.

    What do you want right now? Them to fix the more important things that they need to fix or just loads of cars with loads of bugs that makes it unplayable? What we have now for a beta is amazing you should be happy you have access to the beta. Most companies do in house testing like codemasters and release a game with loads of bugs. Tell me, what do you want now?

    I want something to stimulate the MP{the whole purpose of the game}, and IMO, "cars" are the best incentive, although considering how few tracks exist, they could add more of each.
    I've been wanting to drive F2 at spa, but it's always dead.

    how can you possibly know they they done very little? lets just wait and see what the first Update brings before we all jump on their backs and cry like babies!

    They have been updating the Beta in house since day one, they have stated more content will be released during the course of the beta, they have been active in their own forums responding to many areas of the game.

    Patience it seems is something the Sim Racing Community is severly lacking in!

    You really dont read the comments other people post? Its a beta. Its not supposed to have a vivid MP at this stage as the game is not finalized, its a beta. I am sure ISI are working hard to improve the game and content is the last thing they should worry about at this point.

    So many times I have said this now.....

    ITS A BETA and moreover, its a BETA for MODDERS to TEST and familiarise themselves with, it was not, is not and will not be configured for gamers, if you want that, wait for the final 'Gold' release and stop complaining or get a refund and go back to 7 year old sims :)

    Seriously, were luck to be able to test it and have some input in the final stages of the game! ;)

    Well I'm actually still playing Race 07 if I want serious races. rF2 is actually full of bug and I'm going to wait at least the first patch before I will play online seriously. I hoped I could switch to rF2 already with the first beta release but that was not the case. However I'm not blaming ISI for that. So keep playing GTE Evo until things will be sorted out.

    OK - why don't you play demo versions of other games with less content? :)
