It's so sad, because the underlying game is really solid. A truly worthy successor to RR2, in terms of physics and graphics. But the wait times limit your ability to access that underlying game.

Is it just me, or do you not like wait timers?

Yikes on the timers... again. Fix AI + Timers + cloud support = IAP purchases for dev support. That's what it is for me.

Yeah this bump in maintenance time stinks! I'm just gonna go ahead and say that they were actually fun for me before. I didn't mind the 5 min repair time cause it made me drive another car and mix it up. When you wore the car down it was a couple hour repair, fair. Not any more, longer waits trying to suck up more gold.....the gold. I feel like swearing. This has been very enjoyable and addicting to me, freemium or not.

Yeah, take out the wait timers and make the ai better, and this would have been a great game. Sigh.

With service times longer but repair times shorter, what will it mean in total? Guess I won't have time til tomorrow, but it better not be 8 hours, or I am going to blow a gasket.

Let me get this straight, they fixed problems that didn't exist (repair timers are rarely more than a couple of minutes) and made worse problems that did exist (service timers start getting ridiculous...)? I have four cars right now (well five now, having just bought the discounted Porsche 911, but that won't be delivered for another hour and a half). After updating, the four cars I had now have timers of nearly 2 hours due to servicing...

Yeah, the delivery crap is annoying as the service timers.

Ok so regardless of the features that many of us were chasing it looks as though Firemonkey's have gone the route many of us thought they would dodge with the final product.
If left these timers are going to kill this game

Every model of reality has margins where it begins to run out of explanatory steam, where we can see its problems and limitations

Son of a beyatch!!! Had my Porsche RS in to do a 6 hr service, did the update and now it's gonna take 12hrs.... WTF!!!!!
So they have doubled the timer wait in this new update. That sucks big time.
Sorry, that's my outburst over.... I love everything about this game, but the waiting is over the top.
