A tip for rivals mode

Post  Karma0013 on Mon Oct 17, 2011 3:15 am

If you want to make lots of money in rivals mode, just barely beat your bounty and the bounty will keep increasing until capped allowing you to collect many bounties by slightly improving your performance.

If you set your best lap possible on a 500cr bounty your going to have a really rough time collecting that next bounty

Cheers and I hope this helps for those of you that need some extra credits

Yup, this is definitely true, however if you are not aiming for the top places, where the bounty is like 50K+ CR, it doesn't matter much in my opinion, since (uncorfimed) it seems to me if you post a new time and jump over several positions you get compensated for it. It is visible as "Winnings" on the checkout screen after race, and those numbers are usually much greater than actual bounty.

I've noticed that as well, but I don't think the math adds up like Karma is saying. If you jump 1500 places with one or two laps, and you get paid, for example, 10k bounty... you lost out on several lap times that could net you 500 to 2500 credits a shot.

Myself, The first and second lap around a track, I'll do a mediocre job... beat the opponent given, finish, and repeat. Unless its a track that I have to force myself to go slower on.. then I just smash out the best lap I can get in two or three laps and start working on the top times on the leaderboard. Even then, 25k per bounty, if I can swing it, I'll only beat them by a thin margin and repeat the process until I get utterly tired of the track.

That's the hardest part... staying with the track until you've got it whipped into submission. Especially with some of the higher classed cars. If you're not used to racing that Panoz, you're going to have a hell of a time getting a top 1k time.

I was hoping that massive gains would be compensated, but after taking care to run a clean lap around the nurburgring full circuit in the radikal sr8 ( one of my fav cars ) it jumped me some 10,000 spots but still only paid the 2500cr bounty it promised ( other xp and cr for difficulty aside) and it being right around an 8 min lap I wasn't really eager to run it again for 25k =(

Yea the game needs a money pit.

I'm sure if you have a lot of cars you fancy you can probably find a way to throw away 3mil in a heart beat.

But for those of us who only have a few favorite and/or the top cars for each PI rating, money has no real value in game.

IMO I don't understand the free upgrades past 4 affinity.

Maybe we're supposed to save up 999,999,999 to purchase one of the over rated unicorns off the AH, who knows......

Well sadly the unicorn ones are the only girly emblems, so yeah, of course I use that as mine. Very Happy
But than I was lucky. I had the VIP FM3 save game transfer that gave me three unicorns at start. So I'm good on that. Though I would like more so I can change up my emblem once in awhile. Wink
