• Welcome to Senior Gamers!

    Senior Gamers [SNR] is a community for mature gamers formed in 2012. We started as PlayStation gamers but now we are fully multi-platform with members also playing on PC, Xbox, Switch and other platforms.

    We used this website from June 2012 until March 2020. Technology moved on during this time and we have now moved to Discord. If you are familiar with it already you'll know how quick and easy it is to use. If you haven't tried it yet, you really should!

    You can browse this archived website to see what we posted over the years.

I loved driveclub! Through all the troubles I wasn't worried about the online side to begin with as I was enjoying the offline mode! Now that's all changed

The online is now working and challenges are coming through so that's great but the offline to me has become insanely difficult
From the free dlc I got just 4 stars out of a possible 90! I just can't get any of them, I wondered if I should buy the season pass but the lure of new cars prompted me into doing so, so last night I bought it and it's worse, 4 races so far, 1 star (170 top speed, hardly challenging really) but 12 place in each race out of 12! And I am 10 seconds behind 11th! What on earth is going on!

I then tried the evil weather mode, but again I can't even stay on the track

Is it just me? I am aware I ain't the fastest but am normally quicker than this!

Its not you. I'm struggling with it. Got to be its handling model. As I'm fine on more serious racers like GT6, apart from that 2X. I'm not fast enough reflexes wise.

Not had a proper go at the new stuff - just some drifting but considerably tougher now. It does make a nice change to be struggling offline though.

@Hondavee4 are you using the controller?
I don't even bother with the faster cars as I am finding them uncontrollable with the DS4.
Having said that I am still enjoying it, and as @ChrissPeacock said its nice to have it a challenge. (even though he cheats with a wheel :D)

I do find that choosing the car that suits best helps - some are particularly quirky, the Xbow being one of them. Getting on the brakes before coming off the throttle seems to help on some of the flightier cars....

It's quite maddening cause the game looks so good! Roll on gt7!

I use a DS4 too. As my wheel ain't ps4 compatible, curse you Logitech.

Wheel for racing, DS4 for drifting.
The wheel is great for fine line changes but harder when you get a shunt so swings and roundabouts.

Finished Ignition last night - got all the stars. Photo Finish next. Might even splash out on a season pass....
