-to open bug for everyone

But BB doesn't pay much attention to this question. And it dissapoints....

I have the same issues with trying to get an answer about fixing uP a level that had a shortcut that is now gone but the times still remain unfair. Medium level 7 death hills. It is impossible to get within 20 seconds of the times some people have.

But like you I am not getting any response. That level would be an easy one to introduce again. It's a shame that they don't seem to realize that we are paying customers of their product and It is up to them to listen and work with us to sort out issues.

We're listening and doing our best to resolve such issues, even if we don't always comment because we've got so many things going on at once. We do appreciate the feedback and keeping the leaderboards as fair as we can remains a priority. Ideally we'd have kept a separate leaderboard for each track but that's outside the scope of Apple's GC limitations so we ended up with a bit of compromise there.

I don't have a plan of action to announce either, just wanted to let you know you're not being ignored.

BB, you have been knowing this problem (Motherland) since long ago and haven't taken even a single attempt to resolve this issue. How can you explain that?

I have trimmed my motherland timing to 11:16. It's mainly the first 1/3 section of the track that gives me a lot of problems. I have a lot of trouble controlling the bike after getting the rocket boosters, it just goes way too fast for me. The other troublesome part is where there's an series of small elevated curved ground, explosive barrel, small elevated curved ground, explosive barrel. Takes up to 5 minutes to complete up to this section if I'm lucky.

Basically left with one more star from that + Dragon's teeth. I have absolutely no clue about how to conquer the teeth. Watched the video, still can't complete. This has been a problem since I bought this game from day 1

I have a 6:40 on Motherland, and I am not trying that level again. I think 6:00 min will require a near flawless run (perhaps a few crashes allowed), but every section relies on some amount of luck to get through without a crash. Considering how long the track is it is a real pain. Of course If I spend 2 or maybe 4 concerted hours on the level I will get that last star in the medium level campaign. But no more pain.

Also, I understand the competition on leaderboards, but people should really go easy on the devs here. I am sure they have had a lot of fun with the game to have reached at no. 10 or 25 on leaderboards. I know I have.

I'm 4th on Leaderboard with Motherland 4.54 (could do it better but waiting for BB to fix it somehow). So it is real to be in top 5 with bad time on Motherland.

I've finally done dragons teeth on no checkpoints! I'm happily never going to have to attempt that level again.

As the circuit, motherland and JB4 are impossible with no checkpoints, the only level I've left to complete on extreme now is 'way of the sun'.The level annoys me as its pretty long and all pretty straight forward until a rare snag in the wheelie tunnel or a bad take off on that triple jump over barrels near the end. Any tips?

You've got three stars on all levels except four in extreme mode? Thats absolutely crazy! Must've taken you ages to do that.

Btw, why is Motherland not doable without checkpoints?

Yea I picked up on that when he said it wasn't possible. It is possible but I certainly don't have the patience to try and finish it. I think there should be 2 checkpoints in the level motherland in the 'no checkpoints mode'( would need to be renamed maybe). This would make it still a massive challenge for anyone to finish. Even just 1 checkpoint before the two tunnels you need to wheelie through. They can be very unpredictable.
