I should have known better than to post on the forums. Lol. No disrespect to the owners/mods here, but this site is very Kunos-biased. Which is what it is, but in the end it hurts the sim-racing community. But, again, so be it.So called fanboy's please don't waste your time to discuss with smart people who're believing they can use their aged hardware forever because the first Grand Prix title by Microprose runs great on it.
Guys like @tr1v1um and @protonv5 will never get it. Maybe they'll start to blame Kunos for the impossibility to put an i9-9900k at a LGA-1155 mainboard.
I've always been clear on my posts, but they get twisted and only parts of my comments are regurgitated. And the whole argument is then changed as if that is what we have been talking about all along. I thought these comment sections were included for information/insight/learning etc. But, obviously they're not. Cleary the purpose is to elevate ACC, kill all opposing viewpoints and make every other developer/sim look stupid and irrelevant. In a way, my friends and I always get a laugh out of this, but it's also frustrating because when so many jam their noses up Kunos' rear end, they have no real reason to improve anything. All that happens is you empower their mediocrity.
It's also interesting that on this very site we have a new article entitled "What do you think is missing from sim racing", found here:
Why is anything missing from sim racing? If anything IS missing, then it's also missing from the Kunos titles as well. So, why is that? Why are we as customers forced to ask the question?
Hasn't enough time gone by since the likes of GTR2, Automobilista to now have a title that includes all the features one would want from a modern day sim? Apparently not. Because we have grown accustomed to the new business model: Build it, leave it mostly unfinished, fix it/add to it later. When customers complain, advise them that they are ignorant, know nothing about game design, and then have your trusty fanboys on standby to hammer home the point. They can do this if they want, but a game lives or dies by it's customer base. And if a dev wants to blame the customers, go ahead. But in the end history will show which sims were true successes and which were failures. Regardless of what the fanboys would have you believe.
I really like ACC and WANT to like it a lot more. But so much is missing. It has been the sim that has been the hardest to make run and look half-way decent. Way more than all the others. It has been the sim that forced hardware upgrades like no other sim in recent history. (Regardless of what the fanboys tell you). The rating system is terrible and the so-called matchmaking is non existent. I wish the best for it, but I don't live in a fantasy land. Either make it stellar or make something else. But don't pretend this is cutting edge and say it's the customers who are missing the picture. Have an open discussion about it and make it better. But you just can't do this anymore. We're just supposed to sit here and say: "Wow. Great. Oh yeah, the best. Take my money. Love it." Lol.
I'm not trying to beat on anyone, just say it like it is. Fanboys, you're not helping. You think you are, protecting whatever precious title you protect, but you're just not helping sim racing as a whole. Kunos: Thanks for decent game in ACC, but there's a lot you have to learn also. Please stop with this SA system. It's not working! Lol. sorry for the rant.
