Last night I finally made it thru the "league of legends" season and finished. I don't know why but I have been so compelled to see it thru to the end that I spent a lot of time doing career instead of practicing for series races (that my excuse for why I suck so bad). The wife said she wished I was that compelled about finishing house work (fat chance!) Lol. But now that its done, hopefully I can start practicing more and work my way into some competition instead of hitting the wall so much. Plus M. Rossi was only a few races from pulling me out of my car and whooping my ass. Who else has finished it?

Congrats Low! it's nice to have it done!

I actually spent all my time when I first got Forza playing single player, I was never much for online racing, so I got through career pretty quickly. It was after I was done that I started thinking about joining a club, and found here Smile

I'm a junkie for making achievements...so when the wife starts about not having some baseboards painted or something, I ask her how many gamer points are in it. I'm spending way too much time working on the BucketList and World Tourer ...my last two achievements

I stopped playing career mode once I joined this group. After that, our series races pretty much became my career mode lol.

Same here, but I just started back up again... Now that I am a decent tuner and a better driver, I am SMOKING the AI... + I've got lots of cars tuned in every class! I'm gonna try and finish too... It's a good way to earn credits and the races are pretty easy... You don't need to win to move on! Wink

Congrats! Like swviper, I also blew through it fairly quickly before joining U2SC.

I've been slowly picking away at the Event List since then. It's going to take forever but I'm determined to see it through. The worst and most time consuming part is the Championship races (last column on the right) with two heats and a bazillion laps for all classes. Those take close to a half hour per race. It's like grinding in an RPG.

Luckily I'm only in the 5th or 6th season, so the races are still crazy short - 2-3 laps Very Happy -

so when the wife starts about not having some baseboards painted or something, I ask her how many gamer points are in it.

lol!

I too am a "cheevo" junkie. Idk they give me something to work on in the game if there isn't anything else to do. And it's always satisfying to hear the bloop! and the message pops up.

I finished career mode pretty quickly and I reallly wanna finish all the events but I can't bring myself to do more than 1 or 2 races in a sitting..after the club races the Career race just dont seem as exciting.

I WILL finish first in every race, but (being the cheevo whore I am) I want to get through the seasons FIRST... Then I'll go back and rerun all the ones I didn't finish in the top spot... I think that's what made me stop playing Career mode in the first place... I was too wrapped up in getting #1 in every race.... If I remember correctly, in GT4 you HAD to finish in 1st, 2nd or 3rd in order to advance. There were also a crap ton of rewards for finishing #1... In FM4, I no longer need money, and I am like level 130 or something. What's the point of getting frustrated with a career race? NADA!! Very Happy

I was on the 8th or 9th season when I joined the club. I finally finished the 10th season last week. It was like pulling teeth trying to finish it.

Especially the last race. Given last week's qualifier, I was really hard pressed to do it.

Don't think I will go back to it.

YES!!!!!, and there is a dozen tracks in each class Sad I'm finally up to B class on that row (not my last row btw)...the lower class series are BRUTAL. I have half of the Porsche series races now too.

I've been making a determined effort to finish those off. I've got 11 R2, 5 R1, and 8 D class to go. I really like F and E class so didn't mind those. What difficulty do you set it on? If there are a lot of turns I put it on professional because the AI sucks at cornering. I sometimes have to bump it down to hard or even medium on tracks like Sebring though because I have a hard time catching up on those straights after fighting through the crowd. And let me tell you, it really sucks having to do the whole race over because you couldn't pull it off on the second heat. Damn AI cheaters!

I do those when I need a few extra credits, but it usually gives you more CR to start an online lobby and do a 10 lap race at almost any track

I used to cheat and turn the class restrictor off so I could get the races done quicker Laughing

I run them on Pro normally, but yeah, similarly, there are a couple of them where if the 'leaderboard' car is racing you just can not beat the damn thing...so if you wanna run something 'oddball' you have to knock it down to hard, but then it's too easy.
