Some people don't mind playing games in short bursts. Traditionally, gamers have enjoyed settling down with one for a few hours of entertainment and it's those people who dislike this new strategy.

I'm in the latter group, but I'm gonna check out the gameplay anyway. If the wait time is as bad as the likes of CSR Racing I imagine I'll get bored within a few days. I'd also rather not waste large amounts of space on something I can't play at will.

Good Lord. I just did a round of service and some minor damage repairs (this is my second round doing both...the first came up to 2h 12m)...and the timer is 6h 32m. I am going to go bonkers. The wait times are getting exponentially longer, and that too so fast!

Seeing this, getting the $99.99 package is in itself not worth it. Somebody like me could use that much of gold coins in a day or two!!

What if you set the time back to normal, reverse the counters? I have to rely on my phone at work so it's not something I can just change all the time.

Also it's rather surprising that apple have not done anything about time changing, you would think apple would implant a hidden clock in the background that you never see but works on games and apps.

Can't wait to DL and see how it plays out but no release in US tonight, yes?
THIS DOESN'T work dude. Each championship has a small set of cars (usually 4). So for the first 10 championships at least, you always need to get a new car. Plus, with wait times growing to over 6 hours already, and each car lasting only around 30-45 mins (at best might I add), that is pointless.

If the beginner cars were a lot quicker to service and repair this problem would be much more bearable, I only have enough cash to buy the lowest car (I started with the 2nd worse the RS) and I really don't want too because it's slower and i'm already racing challenging races.

6 hour timers on race spec cars which were R$200,000 might be more um.. real, but delaying beginners just because is a bad choice.

Just tried on my iPhone 5. Sometimes, even if i must admit is quite rare, framerate is not so perfect. Tried all the visuals but i think many tweaks and updates will come in the next days. Same to you?

I'm going to do that right after figuring out how this waiting really works.
From here I am really happy. I did a more hefty race and it will only take two hours to repair the car
(I also put other things to repair since I have more things to do in my life besides playing).
