An open letter to the community

It's always great to get an update from the product owner. Thanks, Jack.

As a previous product manager in the automotive field (we used Scrum), I learned 3 main things: Product development takes time, it costs money, and it requires a clear vision of the end product. I suspect some, if not most, iGP users don't understand how software development works. For that reason, it is easy for impatience to creep in. The simple fact that the numbers of users has increased is a clear indication that iGP has done a fine job moving into the right direction. 

Just want to give credit and a vote of confidence to Jack and his team. Keep up the great work.

I have noticed a 40% reduction in players in 4-5 Italian championships in the afternoon since you put yellow flags and VSC.

I'm almost sure that the majority of the Italian community hates yellow flags and VSC, but nobody has thought of adding a button to disable a function like these that could be unwanted.

I like the idea of yellow flags but sometimes there are days when there are 5 inactive players out of 32 players, and I would like to avoid playing with 3 laps stuck on 22. Especially if the blocked laps are the last 3.

I'm happy for the update of the hall of fame and for the update of the pit stops. But this does not compensate for my dissatisfaction with yellow flags and VSCs.

good job!

Is this a response to my forum post and the blog post?

Not directly. It's addressing the general topics of concern among the more hardcore managers.


I'm also happy to answer some further questions which is why we've left the thread open. I can't reveal everything we're working on though!



Hello Leader Jack, my name is Jorge Monroy. 

I am a participant in this wonderful game.  
I am writing to invite you next week (Saturday July 4) and to be my guest in the broadcast (Youtube Channel) of the 2020 Interliga de Campeones (Champions Interleague).  
It seems that we will have Champion that day and I would like to join us, it would be an honor.  
With me would be the host and Leader of this competition project (Facundo Zanuttini) between 20 Leagues and a more than 100 participants.

Gracias de Antemano.

For what it's worth. The game is amazing.  In depth well thought out & leaves the decisions of the race in your hands. Yeah, it falls short sometimes, pit stop bug etc. They have more right than they do wrong.
Hope the update is worth the wait lol

Thanks for the game though.

The more random factors affecting the race, the more authentic the racing simulation. This is the right trend in the development of iGP.

There are already more than enough random factors/Bugs in the game....

Adding more of them would make the game unmanagable....

I understand that many people love randomness (new players and players with low reputations), but there are many people who hate randomness (old players and players with high reputations).

The administrator could make everyone happy by adding a button to disable or enable this feature. This choice should be made by the host of the championship based on the preferences of its participants through a survey.

For example I don't play in my championship on Sunday. This is possible because there is a "button" that allows the league host to take off on Sunday.

This will allow administrators to add everything they dream of adding even if not all the news will appeal to the players.

If there was a button you could add other things in the race in the future (blue flags, black flag, accidents, tyrannosaurs rex), those who do not like them must have the possibility to disable them.


A button to keep yellow and VSC flags active, and a button to disable them would make everyone happy.

What I currently see is a choice that has been imposed for everyone, based on no survey.
Obviously this system will create championships with very different characteristics and it will be necessary to adjust the filters to find the championships based on our preferences.
To improve IGP everyone must be happy and this is the only possible way.

Peace and love.

To improve iGP everyone must be happy!?
 
I'm always here, and I'm never happy. LOL

1. Tyres annoy me, every track should be unique with the tyre wear percentages, based on the circuit info page were it says higher and lower tyre usage. Way too many tracks are pumping out the same rates even though the track info is different.

2. I want brake & suspension suppliers.

3. I want car setups to different each season.

4. I want everything in the car design to be equally important. 

5. I want boost and DRS part of car design. 

But I love the game really! :D

Just had another race ruined by VSC.. VSC comes out 4 laps before finish, somehow top 2 cars pull ahead by 5 seconds in 2 laps, cars 3 to 6, who were all running close, didn't even have chance to catch up with 1 lap to go. Please dump VSC or give league admins an option to turn it off. VSC has added ZERO benefit to the game.

I agree with a lot of this. I'd like the extra suppliers to be added, but I think it should be possible to have a setup, if done right, you can use throughout the season. You don't change engine, fuel or tire constructors each race for F1, you should here. It just takes a certain feel away from the game, for me that is.

Otherwise, agree. Love the game.


VSC's.
They just have to lock the gaps between cars when the VSC comes out. Right now, if you max the push bar under VSC conditions, you can pull out a gap. Which is wrong.

While I appreciate the update and the attempt to calm concerns over some of the bugs that can make dedicated managers question why they are spending the time and money they are on this game, you must realize that coming out with a letter that essentially says "we hear you and we are working on something big, but cant tell you about it" has a big government making false promises sound to it. I think you would have been much better off saying what you are developing or saying nothing at all. This just tells me that the current issues will not be addressed in the near future, instead I am to wait for "something new" which I know nothing about. I'll be taking a break from this game for awhile and I imagine I will not be the only one. I appreciate the hard work you guys put in, but when the game doesn't bring enjoyment, only frustration and confusion, all based on bugs that need to be fixed, it is time to step away.

"The highest reputation ever obtained by this manager"

Nope.

The peak reputation is the reputation you were ar minutes before the update.  So if you were 10,000 just before the update, your Peak reputation is 10,000. 
The Peak Reputation is starting from Wednesday 1st July (a few hours before the update).

It's not the "highest ever obtained", then.

Then it's unfair on the people that got 10k, and then for example lost a few rep points just before the update, and now it "allegedly" shows that we never reached 10k at all!

If a manager got 10k at even one time in their career then it should say that!
