That sucks that they gave up on penalties completely. The big problem is that people figured out how to exploit them. You could brake check someone unexpectedly and they'd tap you and get a penalty and you'd drive away.

They shouldn't give up on them though. I won my first race because of a penalty. I was leading and cruising to an early win when someone tapped me off the racing line. Didn't wreck me, but I lost a spot and gave up the lead. I follow them in for 2nd but ended up winning because of the penalty.

GT Sport Update 1.54 Arrives, With Penalty System Tweaks

The first of those is a small exploit regarding tires. In certain circumstances, players could still select different tire grades on front and rear axles in order to skirt the mandatory tire requirements. As long as one axle met the conditions, the game would count the player as having used the required tire.

Although a shorter sentence, the second issue that the update fixes is significantly more important. Players have been increasing vocal in recent weeks about the game’s penalty system, with multiple reports of large time penalties for no conceivable reason. This update’s notes suggest that Polyphony Digital has heard these complaints, as it has adjusted the conditions under which the game should award a penalty.

This is why I don't really play racing games online with people I don't know. It just becomes bumper car fest.
That can be the case, just play Forza 7 pre penalty for a great example. But, games with penalties and driver skill ratings are mostly enjoyable experiences.

They haven't given up. Their supposed "tweak" has gone from giving 2 to 10 secs penalties for nothing to not giving any penalties at all. It is ridiculous.

Been looking on Kudos Prime and seeing my DR points and stuff, and it shows just how big an effect penalties have.

Just before they turned of penalties I was at 9036 DR points(Right on the cusp of driver rating B) Penalties get turned off and my DR plummets to 4803(Right on the cusp of driver rating D) in a couple of days.

Then penalties come back and my DR sky rockets to 11046(Driver rating B) In just a few days.


Also noticed im in the top 13% in Sport Mode.._wasn't expecting that.

Nice driving!! I don’t race online because I suck. But it’s good that you are playing in Sport mode. The guys at GT planet say that it’s pretty quiet in that mode. A lot of the same people. Which can be good too.

You need to upload some replay videos. You have lots of miles, but no replay videos. You even used to post them here.
Have only just learned how to save replays.

Haven't used the recording function on PS4 yet either.

Waiting......
Been waiting for them to fix the penalties. Getting a 4 second penalty just for being overtaken = unplayable. I'm waiting to see what the crack is with the new "fix" for the penalties.

4 second penalty for being overtaken? WTF is that s***??
Exactly. It is ridiculous.

Problem is people keep complaing and PD keep reacting to it and it is just getting worse. 4,5 months ago the penalties were in a good place, they just need to revert back to it.

I'm gonna get this since I'm able to download large updates now. Are all of the updates to tracks and cars free? I see the disc version on sale for $10 and the Spec II version on "sale" for $20 on the store. I'd prefer a disc anyway, just wondering if it's pointless to pay double for it if everything released is free anyway.

All cars and tracks are free.

Does this game still have the horrible thud sound when banging into walls and other cars like the previous games?

I've been playing the Arcade mode for the last several weeks and have enjoyed it so far. The music is unbearable and I hate how they removed the ability of customizing your cars. I haven't tried playing online because I don't want to lose, plus I can't get past the stupid etiquette videos because I just don't care and don't want to show sportsmanship and all that nonsense.

At least you like arcade mode. Campaign is fun too.

Hardly nonsense. Shame more people didn't actually watch them.
