Bugs ahoy folks. People are finding that they can't get Nitro and that they aren't getting proper coins all the time either.

Oy vey, it's always something. 

The whole million dollar limit thing doesn't help matters either.

Like why would you want to limit how much money can go to charity anyway?

As far as I can tell, I'm getting the coins right (2x even in offline modes), but yeah, not nitro points ;/

Any notice on when the Spyro Decal Reward drops? I know I didn’t play as much last GP but I was certainly within the top 5% perimeters - usually these rewards pop up when the next GP starts, so I wondered if it was related to the “visual glitch” which stopped you from topping up the meter last week.

Look alive folks, we've got ourselves a new datamine leak, courtesy of BetaM. And boy oh boy, Season 5 is looking quite lively with the content.

Want some more? Because BetaM's got more juice on Season 5 here:

As someone who lingers on Discord alongside BetaM in the Crash channel, I can vouch for this.

If only Beenox was as good in fixing the game as they are in making legendary skins xD It's true that they fixed some issues a week ago and even added stuff people been asking for ages. But they gotta test that shit before releasing...

You know, them increasing the basic daily challenges (check the store, win a race, use customization, etc.) to 200 points creates a bit of an... well I don't know if it should be called an issue or not. See, assuming the GP is running for 29 days, and assuming one can go online racing, you can get 1000 points a day... at minimum. That's already 29000 free points, but factor in the ability to boost four of those challenges to 300 points and you get 1400 points a day, totaling 40600 points over the 29 day period of the GP. In other words, as long as you sign in for the five minutes it takes to do the challenges and do a couple of the themed/pro challenges, you are pretty much guaranteed to meet the 42000 point threshold. So screw the nitro fill up, save those coins for the GP items in the pit stop... whenever they show up, that is. As an aside, I've been trying to get the Electron Roadster tires for far too long now, just show up already.

It always feels like it’s two steps forward, three steps back with this game. They add tons of stuff that sound good on paper, until it turns out the coin bonus for offline is still kinda pitiful and limited, and practically break the Grand Prix items and Nitro Fuel Up in the process.

This is the main reason why people were a bit uncomfortable when Beenox was first announced to be the ones behind this remake.

For anyone familiar with Beenox, their history with stuff like Spider-Man showcases how prone to bugs their games can be. Wanna know why? Because they're one of Activision's studios that constantly get called to work on Call of Duty, which comes as a detriment to other games they work on alongside such.

A lot of the good they've done for CTR Nitro Fueled can't be denied, but the countless errors made that cot the detriment of the experience can't be either. Not helped but constant problems with online, nitro guage being messed with, etc. And another running theme is how in fixing something, they create another problem. 

And if I'm to be honest, up until the Spooky Grand Prix, the way that they addressed a lot of problems wasn't the best either.

 

More on this now. Sure, it's more nitpick-tier, but it's still quite annoying how all new characters who are villains...get that ill-fitting bandicoot victory theme.

Saw an online player (not AI) using Moe, I assume through one of the exploits I heard about months back.

I love his victory animation.

He literally has a skin that makes him a jedi.

So, apparently they added skill-based matchmaking. No word on the metric it uses for judging.

That's..fine, I guess. Would rather they dedicated more time to actually fixing the game.

I noticed I've been paired with decent opponents lately.

Yeah, same here. Haven't played today, but I can definitely say that it's been a while since I've been put in a lobby with a pack of scrubs. Which is making some of the themed challenges difficult (winning on Nina's Nightmare without using items for example) but I welcome that. Besides, I don't really care about Nitro now anyways, for reasons I went into in my last post here. Sitting pretty at about 27000 right now, so I don't really have to do anymore challenges.

Yeah... I wondered why I wasn’t getting anywhere this week. Much harder to grind for coins when your arse is handed to you every race. Usually I can top 3, since Monday I’m lucky to get 5th place. 
 

The only times I’ve won has been from players rage quitting or the servers not working. Nina’s Nightmare has been a nightmare for this (well, it works to my advantage) because I keep winning races as every player seems to drop out 20 seconds in. Cars zooming about sideways and in the air and everywhere. Easy win at least but it happens almost every time on this track.

Hooefully they’ll be an option for ranked and random matchmaking in a future update.

Did someone else also say there’s an issue with the pit stop? I’m getting little to no rotation for any new skins and colours. Really want Dark Coco and Monster Fake Crash, but a week of spending and waiting and still nothing. Took forever for a ghostly colour to appear as well. 

Interestingly I do now have Komodo Joe, but the current “multi offer” on the pit stop for the rest of the items is now just the same if not worse than if you buy them individually haha!

Yes, this is happening now. New decals and stickers still pop-up, but old skins are plenty. I can't stand seeing Gangster Pinstripe and Gentleman Ripper Roo anymore xD Only yesterday a ghost wheel decided to show up, along with Firefighter Dingodile skin. The bundles still appear very often, but I already bought Brio and Moe separately on the very first day. C'mon Beenox, this wasn't happening in previous GP's.

Apparently they'll be addressing things with another patch. 

Hmmm. Let's see:
