Then again if they dare for higher icon rewards, for example, there will be outcry guaranteed too...there's just no way to please everyone at once.
    Not my problem if people only play Summits so they can gloat and show off what others will never have. If that's the only thing that keeps you playing, find something that's actually fun for a change.

    Im not sure we will ever see a replay. IVT never repeated F12tdf summit, they only repeated magma and that dumb **** dark knight from batch 2. Since then we got batches 3, 4 and 5 (current). Nothing from batch 3 was ever repeated, even tho they even fixed open days bug where you couldnt claim rewards untill you get to icon 1. So they fixed this for a future rerun but then canceled it? Ok...
    And another thing. Remember when they promised plat rewards to stay exclusive to summits? Then why blue neon windows tint became purchasable at one point? And patriotic smoke. Not on its own but it was a part of short lived GT500RF1 bundle and everyone with enough CC could buy a summit plat reward. Are we just going to pretend this never happened and keep talking about "exclusive platinum"?

    I would if TDU2 revival or TDU3 released already, FH didn't feel so boring, or NFS: HEAT was actually decent...

    The Summit reward was "Blue Neon Window Tint" (a window tint that's pulsating, I even remember people complaining about it flashing instead of being a static colour) and the one we got in the shop was a normal blue tint.

    Working for a reward is more fun that receiving It for no effort, that's how It works in general. There are even people from time to time who ask for something harder on summits, cause with all sets It's not hard at all. There will always be someone on the other side who can't keep up, but watering everything down to absolute easiest level has It's limits

    Keep waiting, because as I said before, it won't happen. IVT have said that they won't make these cars purchasable.

    Yep. Just pretend it never happened and everything is fine. The philosophy of an "Ivory Tower", remember?

    Not when you get punished for coming up short and never having another opportunity to work towards said goal. There really needs to be other ways to earn these vehicles, even if it's in other competitions. While I agree you shouldn't be handed vehicles for doing virtually nothing, I also don't agree that you should be punished for coming up short with NO WAY to earn said vehicle. It is still game content, and the way this system works, it's a PAYWALL without money being the issue!

    Mhm. They also said cops don't fit the theme but we have a police horn. They also said that the game is based around LEGAL MOTORSPORTS meanwhile a good chunk of the SR. plot totally contradicts that claim. And now you got the damneding evidence of the Blue Window Tint.

    Let's see what happens when the game gets closer to its end days. Still see if those "exclusive" Summit vehicles don't get a CC price tag. In the end, money will be the ultimate decider.

    I think what they meant to say was "It doesn't fit what we want to do with the game", and I guess they also don't want to deal with licensing.
