Oh boy, do we have a lot to go through today. I *think* weíll have these out at the regular time, but we do have the CRAZY long Trials Fusion Anniversary stream happening, so please donít be disappointed if we are a day late or early.

Letís get started because there are a ton of tracks in this special drop.

COMPLEX Concept by S1LVA CONCEPT
Driving line massaging handled PERFECTLY. Not the hardest track, not the flowiest (yeah, I donít know) track, but it is fun and has some insane amounts of time put into the decoration and animation. I will say ďRoachĒ, but you donít ever need to take my advice.

Check out the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O10l5QCdUoA), but go and play it for yourself.

XPL Beelzeboss by ll Xzample ll
Now here is a track with flow if you can get it. Xzample knows a thing or two about riding, and it translates into this track really well. It almost feels too short, but at nearly a minute long thatís just a testament to how well itís been done. Theme? Well, Iím gonna say itís hell. Not like the theme work is hell, but that hell is where your rider is finding himself.

Just watch the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yKmfRXRqPjQ) and then play Beelzeboss.

Swamp Sightings by SwampBalls
Some people will dislike the camera. Some people will dislike the nearly overpowering abundance of flow. I am not one of those people. Swamp Sightings takes something that players find nearly sacred (the camera position) and does something different with it that isnít ďjarringď or ďbrokenĒ. The theme is spot on for a swamp, and I played more than a few times.

Weíve got surveillance (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxfOYWJgYsc) of the swamp during the sightings, or you can do some personal recon.

Train Station [FG] by FG-312
Ok, if there is one thing Iíve learned over the last few years, itís that if I lived in the Trials universe I would NEVER go to a train station, and Train Station by FG just proves that point. Explosions, lava, deadly drop offs into lava with no safety rails, trains flying through the station at a hundred miles per hourÖ NopeÖ But it makes for a GREAT Trials track.

We have the Trains video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8TmwKph-y6s), but I suggest taking a trip to the station on Track Central.

http://static9.cdn.ubi.com/resource/en-US/game/trials/portal/UPR42_train%20station_199453.jpg

Wild Adventure by CENTRAL ADDICTS
This is a rain forest done right, nice flowing lines, nice sense of driving line, good ambianceÖ Those may all sound like the same things, but they arenít. There is a LOT going on in the background here. I have one small critique, and thatís the sound effects being a touch on the loud side, but really, this is a track not to be missed.

Grab your hat, Indy. Letís go on an adventureÖ or watch (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGmVQgVvqCM) it on YouTube.

Meson by llmaynell
Meson feels like weíre back in the HD warehouse, and thatís not a bad thing. A tricky technical track with about a million things to notice, and thatís BEFORE you jump the fence into the second half. Newer riders might have a tough time at getting a 0 fault run, but the practice you get from trying is more than worth is.

Check out Meson in video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WmswdRCCP8), but give it the playtime it deserves.

http://static9.cdn.ubi.com/resource/en-US/game/trials/portal/UPR42_Meson_199455.jpg

Zalem by ll KATIN ll
This track feels like itís made from all Five Elements, if you catch my drift. A futuristic city where we get to laugh in the face of certain death and hundred foot falls. Another technical track, but a bit on the easier side, and Zalem is just plain FUN to play. Thereís grit in the future, and KATIN shows us his vision in the details.

Here is our video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAXlg6ptNps), and donít miss Zalem on Track Central.

http://static9.cdn.ubi.com/resource/en-US/game/trials/portal/UPR42_Zalem_199456.jpg

Patience and Time by Carmine Evolv3d
Someone put a whole lot of old machinery in the forest. We should ride on it. Carmine has some technical building power that becomes flowier as you nail the line. The forest has trees, and the nature looksÖ well, it looks natural. Think you can beat our times?

Play the track for yourself, but first, hereís our video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5DDpnc4Jf8Y).

http://static9.cdn.ubi.com/resource/en-US/game/trials/portal/UPR42_Patience%20and%20Time_199457.jpg

Aftermath by Turbog0
Iím saying that there was a massive earthquake right before we start riding, and the decoration seems to agree with me. There are buildings that must have seen better days, and some vehicles smoking in the background. This one isnít so easy for me to put into a box. Is it techy, is it flowyÖ Letís just all agree that itís absolutely worth your time to play.

As always, we recorded a video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngCNUnu5Zks), but I implore you to play it on Track Central.

http://static9.cdn.ubi.com/resource/en-US/game/trials/portal/UPR42_Aftermath_199458.jpg

Old Rock by VEGASTRASH01
I like how the trash man basically says ďoh, the sunís in your eyes? TOO BAD!Ē in Old Rock. We donít usually see this difficulty from Vegas, which is a shame because he pretty much nailed it. The terrain mods are great, the background is great, the details are great, the sun is a jerk, but it works with the track.

Videos (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CDVAgeMYnB4) make the line seem super smooth, but expect to put in some practice.

http://static9.cdn.ubi.com/resource/en-US/game/trials/portal/UPR42_Old%20Rock_199459.jpg

There we have it 10, TEN!!!!, new Uplay Recommended tracks to play. Iím not going to be able to write some big outro paragraph this week, because weíve got LOTS to doÖ Like playing all of these tracks and all of the Trials games on the stream.

Most likely. It isn't fair that the 360 was holding back tracks from being picked to go cross plat. Now it seems they are picking any tracks, and are crossing them all on next gen platforms and giving the 360 the ones it can handle.

They should have thought about that before releasing the game on the 360 but oh well I'll just leave it at that

Sorry about losing it a bit awesome tracks as always I'm not even that bothers about missing a few customs here and there we never get the Xsupercross on 360 but I never complained about that. I am just a little annoyed about not being able to play the second new tournament and took it out in here and I apologize.

good to see vagas and swamp up there nice one guys


Just a quick question ? is fg really you or maybe some friend or family ?

As for seeing again the same fav builder getting recommended with again a lesser rated track. I guess 1800 who liked my track were wrong then shifty , guess 1800 people didnt really enjoy the track and the same amount on other platforms wouldnt either. Its rediculous to keep recommending the same builder on ps4 when there is other tracks that constantly rate higher all the while , including my own. Having a fav builder auto get recommended before thier tracks even come out is awful to everyother builder in tc and before i continue because i cant be bothered with thi , one more thing tho .

How can you justify recommending almost everyone of fgs tracks he puts in tc?. When there is other that by your own rating system in track central telling you on a constant bases that there is other tracks that other tcs would also enjoy. I dont understand your over endulgment to this creator one little bit and doing as you do is disrespectful to my self and other builders who continure to regulary build for your game with also decent quality tracks. You have stated to me many of time that the system is fair and works so that in its self shows you that your choice of selecting fg every track is unfair and other tracks with more likes or higher rated should be considered. Because after all by ur own admission track central works and tc rates other tracks better quality sometimes other than fgs. Its annoying to know that as soon as his track pops up in tc , your track has no chance of being recommended and that even before u play it. Im fed up with you just wiping any creation of mine under the carpet for the same builders , never mind how well they do or how much fun they are. Yes the recommended is a choice you do for the game but its a choice everyone should be equally open too but giving an auto slot to one creator is just wrong

One thousand eight hundred people told you that a track i created was fun and enjoyable how can u then even try to dissagree with one thousand eight hundred people over another fg track. whatever

( nothing is aimed towards fg , i like his tracks and think they are of great quality , but dont think everyone hes creates shoudl be recommended over mine and others )

I really enjoyed this weeks drop, cheers for the picks,

Funk, honestly man, do you never tire of moaning:nonchalance:
From my point of view, I enjoy a lot of these tracks, some not so much, but glad to get them all, as it's not something anyone is obliged to provide us with!
I get to enjoy tracks from the platform you play on as I don't have other means to access them, and all other platforms, big win for me!
But you are determined (with your entitled opinion) to drag it all down every single time dude,

It is RLs game, if they think a certain track should be in their feeds (for whatever reasons) it is not anyone's business to argue!

Why don't you just go nominate some of the tracks you reckon should be on the list (I've yet to see you do so) and help sway some of the decisions that irritate you so much.

But I really want to say (with my entitled opinion) I for one do not appreciate your constant blah:nonchalance:

04-18-2015, 09:14 PM
well you wouldnt because u dont spend over 100 hours a week making a track weekly so you do , to be honest i am sure if you created tracks weekly that sat at the top of track central everyweek over others that get recommended you too would be alittle annoyed. Also why is an opinion a moan , just because its an opinion that goes against the grain does not mean that its a moan. I stand for what i beleieve and if i am being done wrong i will say so whats wrong with that. For me a big part of my game play is to do with the recommended like your is mainly riding and becoming a better rider , well mine is building and having them recommended and tc tells me that my tracks should be . So why bringing this in the light of day is that moaning.

Nobody goes moaning at you for complaining about score boards and so forth as so many do so why is me bringing the fact of the same builder being recommended over ones that tcs say are better. man i have a track that has 1800 likes what ya talkig about and thats still is not good enough

I have actually been around this forum and researched my posts , within these only 30 % are infact anything of this nature , the other are of othe tthings so maybe its your self who only picks up on the negative vibe. Again your entitled to you opinin and you chose to voice it even when i was talking to shifty nobody else. So that in its self it a contradiction of your entire post. I dont come around your posts and start giving my entitled opinion on you always being so nice to the devs.

Im allowed to be alittle negative this is a feature in the game thats not doing me right i feel with the track central , so i voiced my opinion , lik you just did your self so your allowed to but im not ? mmmm something strange there

Infact how can u even post regarding this , you have what being building again for a short while ? how would you know how it feels , try building 7 tracks over 600 hours in 8 weeks or so and have them do great in tc and then just see on certain creator come across and always get recomended.. what would you actually know of this ?

I should be able to speak to a dev without an comments from anyone else , yes this is a forum and people are free to post but come on dude , ya didnt have to get involve or give your opinion , i have picked up a valid point i think with a dev , track central does say my tracks wrothy of being recommended so whats wrong

I guess what you mean to say is , i should shut up and put up , wrong bloke son. I aint about to shut up because some bloke who i dont know from adam is alittle upset. Grab ya self some tissues have alittle cry and read on:p

You haven't picked a valid point with a Dev at all, what you've done is whine yet again that your track aint been picked. Have some fk'n dignity man ffs.

04-18-2015, 09:44 PM
brings out the best of ya , it would be cool just once , just once to post to a dev without every sucker for rants getting involved. Just once would be nice but then again i doubt thats ever going to happen has its good entertainement for you i suppose

the mall - 1800 likes in one week
there be drgons - 500 =
whispering grave - 600 plus
Roach rally 500 +
couple more were also around the same place

These were all above the creators tracks in track central or in the same place... why is that not a vaild point , i am puzzled.

My posts are due to passion of buklding , why are you posting joe , because your a moron who likes getting involved and dignity is something u my need to look up because having dignity is stand for ur self joe. Go back to whineing at the scoreboard or the mp thread and shh

I would like to add at this point that i have indeed made a vaild point. If a creator builds tracks that each week dominate or atlast stay around the top parts of tc then without his or her fault they come to a conclusion that thier tracks must be of quality that all would enjoy. So if another creator is always having thier tracks recommended when they are the same level in tc or even below is somewhat confusin to a constant builder who is constantly roaming the top of tc. If my track like other were of a different stlye then you could say thats why which would be fine but they are not they are of the style for recommended. If i built once in awhile i would also not be that bothered and most likely not see what happens so much ragarding all this, The fact is that i do build a track a week and each one gets above or is on par with fgs everyweek and has been for th last 10 weeks. Now his tracks have been crossed everyone this creator makes which of course is going to leave a foul tatse in anyone mouth who spend up and 100 hours a week buidlign a track one because they like doing it and to to see if it will get recommended which is a big part of my game play like other is riding and so forth. I dont see why this is such a big problem to some and cnt see why this is not understood. Why dont the people against this go and spend 100 hours a week , watch thier tracks enjoyed by many and be higher then some builder or even at the top. Go do this and then watch another builder get recommended every week over your own.

You are lieing if you say you would not eventually see your backside , this would also leave you angry and somewhat confused i dont care what crap you wanna come out with. I made a complete valid point with a dev and again had responses from people which it has nothing to do with. You moan on a regualr occasion joe and infact troll many of times , so dont even bother trying to all that. You would be crying like a baby if your tracks were not recommended if u created as many as i am and am doing with the response they get in tc while others that dont sometimes do as good still being recommended. I can understand ozy post as he also maybe had a point and gave a valid reason for his post. Yours has been taken as nothing more then what my 16 year old son would come out with.

My point was valid and having dignity is infact speaking those valid points dispite knowing what vultures you lot are and knowing that i will be stacked up against it. That my friend is dignity

First off, don't call me "son" boy,
How can you possibly know what I've done in the editor when my name does not even appear on half of it,
Approval and validation from others is not why I come here,
I have spent over 100 days building tracks across Trials games, not hours Funk, days!
Probably spent 99 of those making garbage but hey, I'm happy with them.
As I had fun making them, had some featured along the way, enjoyed some competition with friends on them and I will continue regardless of how well or poorly they are received by whomever, seeking approval from others is lonely road to travel Funk,

Of course you are entitled to share your opinion, I have no recollection of saying otherwise,
What I am referring to in this instance is that you have offered up this same opinion many months ago, it has been addressed and yet you still keep it going,
This to me cannot be described as anything other than moaning!

The simple fact that you think your highly rated tracks should be featured is already against how I feel it should work,
I would rather see a good track that didn't do so well in the regular feeds be held up for others to see, much more than tracks that have seen success already.
But there are many better ways to get that point across than constantly repeating the same ugh in here!

I enjoy the picks most weeks, I come in to these threads to say cheers, and every time, All I see is you regurgitating the same guff, everytime man!
All you appear to be doing in my eyes is arguing for the sake of arguing,
Something I shouldn't have dragged myself into but here we are,
This how I perceive you Funk, It doesn't matter whatever else you participate in, good or bad, my perception is my reality,
I tried to let you know this as subtly and politely as I could and you respond with passive aggressive threats...wow dude,
Now that I have a better picture of your mental capacity, I will end this junk from myself with what I wanted to say in the first place...

Funk, STFU
If you are this "wrong bloke" you think you are, you are quite welcome to my home address, knock at my door dude, as I am not going spend anymore time arguing from a keyboard.

04-18-2015, 11:15 PM
Why would you offer me your adress in a fighting manner.... this is some what very shocking over a post dude , threatening me or offering me to come round to yours for a fight over trials fusion. Pmsl come on bud your not really that mad are you bud. Omg chill out dude whats with all the threats of violence. Not sure why you would say that bud over a post. soooo funny. You need to learn to take some people speaking back to you , if you get involved in something passionate expect a passionate response. Im not going to go into the rest again , 1800 people say i have a valid point so oh well.

As for the opinions lets clear this up , i gave my opinon which i was entitled to and then you gave yours but yours was more of an opinion based on my charactor ozy which is not an opinion but either an obsevation or much more. the agressiveness came within your inital post , yes you can say that what i was aying was wrong but you also chose to try and call my charactor which had nothing to do with an opinion. Where im not bothered now at first i was alittle angry and your judgement at me and not what i was saying. You can reply to an opinion without commenting on someones charactor. Either way it was afterall an opinion and one you think you was right in doing say even tho nobody has a right to assinate someones charactor. Anyway my own post was also an opinion so i fyou think u was entitled to yours and i am entitled to mine there were is the problem ? we both gave an opinion based on this game both entitled to so then there should not really be a problem anymore. I did not liek the way you decided to tell me i am moaning thats not an opnion thats against my charactor and nothing to do with my post one bit.

I will add that you are coming from a complet different place i am , no dobut in a few years i will be at your place and my passion gone somewhat , can you tell me with your own passion for building you once had if they had the recommended then that things like this would not bother you , especially with the first terms of your building. I think it would also i know of your building because you told me you your self that u dont build anymore so thats how i know. because you told me awhile back in your thread. Of course ur going to say this wouldnt bother you ,which is what my grandma would say " poppycock" lol. You are totaly past the high raw passion of building and so are alot of the builder within here, i am sure that many have forgto what they was like with thier first year of building and if the recommended would have been aroudn then i am sure many of you would have been the same

You can completly forget any threat of offers of violence , this is something i have put in my past and will not bite to again , especialy over a post on the internet. Wow really still shocked that a would be like that over a post dude.... i shall remember not to speak to you again hahaha. IF your the type of guy to offer up a fight over a post that is something that sheds light on you bud i did not think you was that young. Im way to old for fighting these days , i have false teeth for petes sake , my big 40 this year. God i cant even go in to a foum without getting into a knees up ... so many memories.

seriously ozy you got to take someone speaking back to you , you called my charactor i defend it , thats how it goes

Honestly Funk, I only troll the people here that I know fairly well and like. My post to you is how I honestly feel having read this bollocks over and over again from you. I've done my fair share of regrettable posts over the yrs that's true, not sure I've ever whined over something so selfish here though. I've never seen you post anything that isn't ultimately self serving..as Ozy said, I seen you post a lot about deserving builders but don't see you making any recommendations. I love the Trials series, RL and this community and if I thought it would make any difference I'd have tried to talk to you before about this issue. Better people than me have tried, failed and tried again to get through to you already though and I don't think I've got the patience.

RL can put what they want in that feed, it don't matter if it's the highest rated track of all time or Down the Stairs part 1573596...it's their call.

My God, Funk, what are you on about at all man,

Where exactly did I threaten violence,
I said I have no wish to argue from behind a keyboard, if you want to continue, I will tell you where to find me, I did not intend any other meaning.
After all, apparently you are the "wrong bloke" to be messing with.

I did not say I don't build,
You said you didn't know I built and I said "yea every now and again;)" without checking I think that's exactly what I said,

I did not attack your character, I simply asked to to stop moaning (repeating the same inane argument over and over) because you are making it hard for me to come in to these threads to show some appreciation for the tracks offered to us,
Something I would like to see continue, and I'm sure if I was the one picking and posting them just to see your moan week in and week out I don't think I'd continue to bother with it... get it.

Have a good day Funk, I really don't want to keep this going!
Please understand that your constant moan (regardless of your entitlement to do so and how righteous you believe it to be) is not fun for the rest of us to endure.

See you in the next cartoon mate:nonchalance:

My posts are just like who i am , i dont smile if i am being angry nor do i smile if i think im being taken for a ride , i dont add emotes or speak nicely when my work is being ignored. You on the other hand do which is fine but if i dressed my post up with emotes and niceness then it wouldnt seem like moaning. But thats not me , if im pissed off im pissed off and wont add flowers or a smile with it so yeah my posts can be blunt

04-19-2015, 03:57 AM
All i am going to say is this -

joe you need to go check your sources dude because everything in your post is incorrect.. go check then come back and rewrite.

Also 2 of my tracks was not even tested bud with one getting over 600 likes and sitting at the top of tc and above the recommended one , not even tested but then to see the same builder picked , come on dude i dont spend hours and hours for them to just simply be ignored by the actually game creators. Atleast they can ride my track. I actually put these 2 in the recomendation thread my self to see if they would atleast test them. So yes i have a right to be pissed when they cant even be bothered to test tracks you build.

I dont have a prob with you infact dont anyone but i aint apologising for being pissed off that evey track around my tracks on tc are being recommended when mine are int he same places or sometimes higher. to think that in my opinion is only human , i guess the difference is most would not dare say anything in fear of the exact same response you gave and ozy. I dont give a flying toss what anyone thinks of what i post to me the recomended is a ibg part of my enjoyment of this game without it i think i would have got bored it is something to strive to , call me wrong for likeing it or seeing it this way thats ur opinion but this is my main enjoyment of this game to get recommended and of course building which is what you really want because tc doesnt really rate tracks correctly as we know not always anyway. So if my main enjoyment of this game is not effecting my enjoyment why is this wrong according to you to post about this ? you post often about what you dont like about your main enjoyment of this game i dont see any difference and you dont see me coming in and slamming you or anyone for that matter. Of ocurse im going topost about things i want about the game , i dont see you posting regards to anything that does not also suit you , are you mental why would people do that ? everyone does things that is going to suit them to a degree thats human nature. Shiftu could possibly give me a decent enough reason as to why and maybe shine some light or even give me reason which could mean they tracks are not good enough which is fine but that does not make me wrong in posting in here. again this is something that i am passionate about and not even having tracks tested as well as tracks wihich are evidently truely enjoyable just passed over for another creator is something which bothers me , why is this bad ? why am i wrong in posting for something which is my main enjoyment of this game ? the simple answer is im not ,the trut fact is that you have not stopped to really think about what i have said , you just as usuall see a rant and bam its meat.

I dont have no problem with you dude but please stop calling me eveythime i post about something which you might not like agree with. You claim i am whining you have no idea or can not prove this , its an asumption and all your post is inccorect and totally wrong. I am full within my rights to think thay my track are bing ignored when one some arent even being tested and 2 they are on par or above the pics of the recomended reugular and so many are and other that sourround me are being picked all the time , this leave me wondering why mine arent , why is that so bad for this to all be such a big problem for your self or others.

there isnt always a mean things behind a post just because it may seem against the grain , a tip ! you wont ever learn anything if you follow it

People actually want to keep in mind what i have actually gained for the recommended since my time here and all this calling of my posts. Ask shifty him self , it is partly down to me why he now and has done taken a different light on how he chooses tracks in some areas. Like more unknown builders , tracks with maybe fault but other awsome things amongst them. I remember a time when it was all the same builders all the same sort of tracks being picked. Shifty him self in one post said that he also thought he may or should start at looking for other things in tracks. So my whining and moaning has done far more then been just that. Some people may not have had thier tracks recommended if i had not have persisted in my endevour to get the most out of the recommended. So that alone should answer your question about being selfish and wanting things for my self. While people sit around moaning at my posts i am actually doing things , ok maybe not always perfectly but still things have changed and it was my moaning that started the movement of this.

Its called dedication and persitance to get the most out of something , just giving up is for slackers

Nice selection of tracks here.

Swamp Sightings, now this is a cool track. Panned out view, with a sweet theme and meditative driveline. Not for everyone, but for me it's a real treat. Going back because for some unknown reason, I thought it was Roach only.

Train Station. Yeah, this is good.Real good. Belting drive through on this one.

Meson. Good technical build to traverse.

Aftermath. Different camera, but allows for the theme to be more immersive and I enjoyed the technical side of the run. Good stuff.

Old Rock. I loved Old Rock, blinding Hard speed runner.

The Bone picks I'd already played. All good. Zalem is a work of art, with a smooth line. Patience and Time has the real depth, old school Pure Trials. So yeah, very good drop methinks.

It's unfortunate that not everyone gets to play them all. Joe, you're welcome to come round anytime, mate. I may even swat the kettle on for you. Beat my times though and you wash up.

Funk..I saw about 3 versions of your post above last night and can only come to the conclusion you're delusional man. I think those likes on TC have truly messed you up and your admittance that you build largely for the Recommend Feed put's you at odds with the philosophy of most of the builders who come here.

That's my opinion anyway and you can chuck it in the bin if you like, it's not meant as a character assasination or an attack. I spose I thought maybe being blunt enough with you would make you realise that you're coming at this all wrong....give you a different perspective that'd ease your mind a bit.

I've seen you complain enough that you have trouble getting your thoughts out onto the screen clearly enough, I have the same problem. Somewhere in all the aggro that you've surrounded yourself in here there have been people trying hard to help you integrate better into this community just because they can see you love the game...nobody tried to help you for your sparkling personality and cool, dry wit.

I'm not gonna keep on, you're right that I don't have to read or respond to your posts. I just wanted you to know that no matter how snappy or hostile some of the posts to you have been, there have always been people here that are welcoming and accepting of new folks into the Trials community and they did try with you.

Rude: Tea sounds nice, I'll bring the salad mate ;)

Is it now gonna be a regular thing that half the tracks picked or to complex for 360? as we only got half the picks again
Due to complexity restraints on that console it is most likely that there will be less tracks that are able to run on Xbox 360 that will be cross-platformed.


good to see vagas and swamp up there nice one guys
Never talked to Swamp (that I recall) but Vegas can be pretty cool when he wants to be. He can also be like me (highly opinionated and stubborn). Hope that doesn't offend you, Mr. VEGAS!


Just a quick question ? is fg really you or maybe some friend or family ?
I guess it's possible that he (maybe she) is a long lost relative, but if so I am currently unaware of any genealogical parallels.


As for seeing again the same fav builder getting recommended with again a lesser rated track. I guess 1800 who liked my track were wrong then shifty , guess 1800 people didnt really enjoy the track and the same amount on other platforms wouldnt either. Its rediculous to keep recommending the same builder on ps4 when there is other tracks that constantly rate higher all the while , including my own. Having a fav builder auto get recommended before thier tracks even come out is awful to everyother builder in tc and before i continue because i cant be bothered with thi , one more thing tho .
I'm not saying that anyone who likes something is wrong. Well... there are certain things that I would say are wrong, but none of them have to do with a person's selection of tracks in Trials. What is wrong:

a) That you are on some kind of blacklist.
b) That I make all of the selections (I haven't had time in probably over a month).
c) That Uplay Recommended is about how a track is rated on Track Central.
d) That the amount of selected tracks by a user should disqualify them from having other quality content shared.


How can you justify recommending almost everyone of fgs tracks he puts in tc?. When there is other that by your own rating system in track central telling you on a constant bases that there is other tracks that other tcs would also enjoy. I dont understand your over endulgment to this creator one little bit and doing as you do is disrespectful to my self and other builders who continure to regulary build for your game with also decent quality tracks. You have stated to me many of time that the system is fair and works so that in its self shows you that your choice of selecting fg every track is unfair and other tracks with more likes or higher rated should be considered. Because after all by ur own admission track central works and tc rates other tracks better quality sometimes other than fgs. Its annoying to know that as soon as his track pops up in tc , your track has no chance of being recommended and that even before u play it. Im fed up with you just wiping any creation of mine under the carpet for the same builders , never mind how well they do or how much fun they are. Yes the recommended is a choice you do for the game but its a choice everyone should be equally open too but giving an auto slot to one creator is just wrong
You finding Uplay Recommended tracks that are not yours (how many have you had?) disrespectful towards you isn't an issue that I will entertain. I'm sorry to put it like that, but I think it needs to be clear. My opinion is that posts about how one of the selections should not be made because it is not one that you have built is something that I find disrespectful. There was a gentleman's agreement in the old RedLynx Picks threads that if you want to recommend a track, that it was a track a different builder has made. You seem to want all of your tracks to be made cross-platform based on the amount of "likes" they get on Track Central, and that's just not how Uplay Recommended works.

I don't recall saying that Uplay Recommended was "fair" any more than saying that a group of people making decisions based on subjectivity is fair. Uplay Recommended is HIGHLY subjective. People from RedLynx add tracks they like to a list. Occasionally a track is vetoed, but I think that has happened twice in the last year and it's not something any one person can do.

I would would like to clarify that there are some amazing builders who have had NO RECOMMENDED TRACKS who don't seem to be angry about it. You have had at least 3. If you think that every track you make is going to be in that feed, then you are unfortunately incorrect and setting yourself up for further disappointment.


One thousand eight hundred people told you that a track i created was fun and enjoyable how can u then even try to dissagree with one thousand eight hundred people over another fg track. whatever
Not disagreeing, that's their point of view. Uplay Recommended is our point of view on content that we want to share for all players. The track you are talking about with 1800 likes wasn't one of them for this week.


( nothing is aimed towards fg , i like his tracks and think they are of great quality , but dont think everyone hes creates shoudl be recommended over mine and others )
We all like different things, sir.

I do understand that some of my post may have come across harshly or even a little condescending, but this isn't the first time we've had this argument. It IS an argument, if it were a discussion then it would be different. If it didn't happen 80% of the time that you do not have a track cross platformed, then it would be different. But it isn't different, it's the same thing nearly every time and it is unfair to the creators who have been selected, and it is unfair to the other people who use the forums.

From my point of view it is belittling the other track builders.

The feed is not called "High Rated Tracks", there's already a feed for that. This feed is called Uplay Recommended. It is tracks that we recommend. I think that enough would be a sufficient answer, even if it isn't the one you like.

@Funk

I think it would be highly beneficial for you to maybe steer away from worrying about Uplay recommended.

If you enjoy making tracks, then that's great and you should keep doing it. But if you keep wanting Uplay recommended then as you've seen you'll only be disappointed (not saying you won't get one in the future)

If you just don't even think about Uplay recommended and do what you enjoy, I'm sure you'll get a Uplay recommended if your tracks are worthy.

Good luck!

Meson has horrible performance for me on PS4. The second half of the track pretty much plays in slow motion; an unfun, splashy mess.
Thanks for reporting. We've done some further optimizations to this track and reuploaded. Let us know if you still see performance issues.
