Nice!

Although, let's see how gem-intensive getting the new bike 'prints will be :p
But anyway the new bike will be theoretically available to all the free-players, thumbs up for that.

YAY. Gotta love new events.

Shame the people who paid for the Bandito havent had it that long to be worth the money yet though.

Bringing back my faith in this game. Going the p2w route really lowered my respect for RL, but this is a turn in the right direction.

Question; will getting a certain percentile each leg be sufficient to build the bike at the end of the event? Or will it require bunker rewards etc. at a later stage to complete it?

Looking forward to getting the Bandito :D I don't suppose Halloween 2015 tracks will be available? Still missing some, almost 2 years of waiting ^^

I'm a little bit disappointed that Bandito blueprints are available to get for free so soon after real money offer (yeah, you've guessed - I've bought the bike), but at the same time I'm happy that TF isn't going straight into p2w 'abyss'. And I still hope that in one of the future events/pvp seasons we will have ktm 500 blueprints as rewards. ^^

The bike upgrades are not the same.

Im racing with a 10/10/10/10 which is the same upgrades i have in the normal maps.

What upgrades is everyone else meant to be running at ?

No wonder hitting top 1% on each track was so easy! Guess my fully upgraded Bandito is a big advantage.

It's a backward system for sure...the people who don't have Bandito will have a more difficult time getting it thanks to the people who already own it.

I'm currently at a time of 18.028 seconds which is in the top 0.63% using a Bandito at an upgrade level of 6/6/6/6. I don't own the bike.
Look at your friends list on the global event leaderboard, the graphic for the bike upgrade level is correct.
All friends that had a bike upgraded over 6/6/6/6 get to use that upgraded bike, usually at 10/10/10/10.

P.S. I should have stated that I have riden 1 track which is Rocky Desert, I'm about to tackle the rest.

Appreciated it if
- Everyone gets to ride the Bandito with the same level of upgrades - to ride on all tracks in the Rally!.
But "You Can't Always Get What You Want"... Anyway a nice event without major bugs so far, knock, knock...
Unfortunately there's no new Tier for Bandito and KTM's. This makes the whole thing more and more messy.

Any suggestions what to do, let Cam riding me my own Jackal in Midnight Circuit?

I'm managing to get fairly high ranks on all the tracks (most top 50) and I haven't got Bandito unlocked so I assume everyone has same.

You are a good player, so even with 6/6/6/6, you should have no problem getting top 50. It's the same for me. Getting rank 1 on any track however, will be next to impossible.

Hey NO-bwestlie - you’ll not get the complete bike unless you’re at Rank 1. It’ll require a lot more racin’ ;)

Also, the Bandito bike has the same level of upgrades for everyone racing in the Bandito Rally Challenge. Even if someone already owns the Bandito and have maxed out the upgrades, they’ll still be playing with the same level of upgrades in the Bandito Rally Challenge as everyone else :)

Upgrades cannot be the same, there must be some difference(s) somewhere - at the moment I'm #1 at Delivery Line, but I ain't that good. :)

Hi CaptainWeelie,

There will be more events later on (like midnight circuit, bunker, new event etc...) where we can collect bandito bps?
I assume tha max amount what we able to collect is 9, so 11 would be still missing.

Thanks for your reply!

Have no own Bandito, and no full upgrades. Perhaps LB doesn't show correct upgrade level.

OffTopic:
This new white forum background is annoying.

loot wheel for this event regarding getting map pieces is RIGGED!

Yes, I manage to hit more gems on the wheel than map pieces. Either it's rigged or I am EXTREMELY (un)lucky.
