I've been at SRW about 9 months now and quite enjoyed myself here.
But lately things haven't seemed quite the same here. Not long ago we got this great new forum and things seems to be heading in a good direction.
Events at one time to total between 70 or so and sometimes drop into the low 40's but would then soon increase probably averaging around the 50's. A few weeks a ago I made a post about this because the events had dropped to 21 and at the moment we are at 33 (6 of which are RTTW). I also mentioned in this post the fact that people who have spent money on some cars that don't seem to get used very much.
Other things such as TDT, come 08:00 (GMT) the car was there straight away, when new cars were released they also appeared quite early in the day, now they seem to be turning up later in the day, with new cars quite often turning up very late.
On the press page they love to use images of the Audi R15 and the great video of this car - but that video is now over a year old and where's the car?
Some new cars released over recent weeks have been great bit's of work such as the Bentley Speed 8, but then some like the SLS AMG and Mini Cooper Works have had poor quality interiors.
Although individually these things may seem small together they just make it feel like things are going a bit downhill. Are SRW are either trying to stretch themselves too far or do they lack enough staff? Also the organization seems to be a lacking a bit to me, such as the error with bringing in the new SQ levels for Hot Laps and not even telling anyone about it.
We recently got the side mirrors added to the external views, but all the HUD times and info go over the top of these so they are not of great use.
I don't know but to me all this adds up to lack of confidences from the customers and lack of confidence mean that people will be cautious with their money and surely people putting money into this game is what keeps things going?
Maybe I'm seeing things wrong or maybe there are grand plans being worked on which is why things have been lacking a bit, I just hope SRW is going in the right direction to enable it's customer base to grow and the game to prosper as I enjoy racing here.
