Looks great but not paying full price for a update to a car that's already in game. Just like I'm not paying another $10 for a full layout Monaco when i already purchased the Formula E course.
New content is a good thing but S397 need to cool it with the DLC it's getting grosser & grosser everyday until it's basically iRacing.

& Please hold any if you don't want it don't buy it comments I'm not talking to you.

I've always bought everything from every Sim so far.
But slowly rF2 has the taste of iRacing.
I don't like that at all.
They know that people like driving it and there is not a lot of good mods available, so they can charge 5 euros for single car. If Race Sim Studio finally stepped up and released their AC cars, who would buy S397 stuff? I wouldn't.

Kinda pointless to sell all that content when they dont even have a online competition and a good playerbase... but I guess they keep above water with that stuff.
I am not really sure if they are at a point of keeping above water when I take alook at the current content releases and the lineup for the virtual le mans race, wich is quite frankly pretty insane and propably the best lineup in sim racing to date. I think they are in the process of expanding their portfolio with lots of new content and steadily increasing the player base, wich seems to have worked since S397 took over. Who would have expected a Ferrari in rF2 five years ago? The competition system is still in the works and I wouldn't be surprised if we see Spa or Daytona in the comming months. So much about a good playerbase. They are running pretty agressive strategy to increase exposure and it seems to work.

I've loved most of the content released since S397 took over but, damn, we need a way to race this content without having to join a league. Not many choices for people who live in North American time zones.
I'm beating a dead horse, I know.
An issue I've ran into over the yrs aswell with most the sims.

Tho not the best sim out there....I've just settled with paying a few bucks more and stuck with iracing the past few yrs until one of these developers implement a proper MP system to compete with them.
At least I know there are hourly races and people I can compete against to get some use out of the content I payed for. The implementation of AI helps justify the cost, tho I hope one day they will introduce an offline service minus the subscription fee to use the content once all content has ai use.

Sure are a lot of complaints about the price of content if you don’t have five bucks to put towards your hobby maybe you should try toothpick houses. A decent computer will set you back $1500 and you people complain about five dollars. if they want 20$ I would see the point but again it’s five dollars.Really I just don’t see the point in complaining about that price range.

Completely ignorant way of looking at it. People like this really piss me off. Computers may set you back a lot but also computers dont NEED to be upgraded every 5 seconds which means you can build a descent one and run stuff well for years (unless of course you're a tech whore that has to have the latest up to date stuff just to feel satisfied). This means things and circumstances can change in the life of your pc. I cant afford to buy every DLC that comes out because i now have higher priorities and more important things in my life. Just because you have money to spend on every dlc and cant see why £5 is a lot to some people then you really need a reality check.

My case in point, if £5 is a lot to someone the last thing they should be moaning about is buying a car for a game, they should be worrying about food on the table!

Perspectives people, if you can't afford it dont buy it...its REALLY that simple!
Exactly, perspectives and value. Why people criticize rF2 DLCs is the value. rF2 is not alone in the market and if you get stuff elsewhere for far less, why bother getting an rF2 DLC. Sure, S397 needs money to keep going, but if the prices were more competitive, I, personally, wouldn't mind getting some content.

If it's worth it to you, good. If it's not worth it to some, understandable in my opinion.

ye in a way you are right but why do the same people always complain about the price and why they tell every time that they wont buy it , if you wont buy it then just dont say anything . S397 ACC iracing AMS they al spend money in creating cars , laserscanned tracks etcetera and always the same people complaining about it . What you expect that al those companies work for free and spend their money to give people like that everything fo FREE , you work for free too ?
so you need a reality check also

I purchased the Ferrari instantly, but the Porsche Club, the BMW M2, I passed on those. I limit my expenses as best I can but try to never complaign about a price point set by creators. If you want me to make the car, I'd have to take up that toothpik hobby mentioned above. I'm not gonna complain about the price of content that is, in any way, providing me entertainment. Heck, you could buy 3 cars just by skipping popcorn next time you go to a movie. (oh and this is a generic reply, in no way intended or un-intended to reply to Gasper as I totally respect his cheap a$$ opinion! ) ;)

No i dont need a reality check thanks. I dont complain (although think £5 per car is a lot) but also dont bother buying it.
