Competitive Season 8

    • Winning half of your placement matches will land you near your previous season ranking
    • 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

  • 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

[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.]
