Competitive Season 8

    • The soft reset will no longer compress Champion Tier players skill downwards.  Instead, only Grand Champions will be compressed down to the top end of the Champion 3 skill range.

    • League Rankings will be temporarily empty until players complete their placement matches

BUG FIXES

General

  • Fixed Boost activation occurring one frame behind input when client runs above 60 FPS

  • Boost Audio and visual FX will no longer continue to play after boost is deactivated

  • Fixed an issue with physics state quantization that led to cars occasionally “settling” at inconsistent suspension heights (thank you to Rocket Science for reporting this)

  • Improved loading performance that was causing some players (particularly on PS4) to experience stutter in the first 5-10 seconds of matches

  • Fixed players who have initiated a Forfeit Vote being unable to see the Vote to Forfeit option afterwards

  • The “Keyboard Input Acceleration Time” option is once again available in the Options - Controls menu.

  • Fixed the “Favorite” button sometimes disappearing in the Garage Car Body tab

KNOWN ISSUES

UPDATE: If you are experiencing join delays or freezing upon entering a match on PS4 and PS4 Pro, we recommend that you only queue for new matches from the Main Menu and not from your previous match's end match screen. This issue is one we are trying to address in our next client update.

[NOTE: If you go down a division after a win in a Ranked match, this is not a bug. The division down is attached to a previous loss that was reported to our database late. You are still receiving appropriate credit for the win.]
