I'm glad they're focusing a little more on the racing this time around because in MW the actual racing part of the game seemed kind of lacking and it wasn't very fun with all the catchup AI.

It's not that drifting is bad, it's how kiddies in this world can't drift properly, let alone kill people in their ways. Like people said before, sliding like an idiot around the road is not drifting. Leave it to the experts, the guys who ACTUALLY drift like pros...

...or better yet, don't drift at all.

BTW osa_mah91, don't try and fight sin. I know from experience, he would pin you to the wall, put you in the washing machine three times, iron you (and probably leave a black hole in your body), and boil you in an oven for a year.

osa_mah91- if you really are a pro.. maybe you'll be able to prove it.... and since I know that all you'd do is go find one to download, its easy to spot that you'd fake it..

so I challenge you to drift.. and the best way to do this would be having someone hold a paper that says "I owned Sinister" in the shot while you're drifting.

and this would definately need to be in video format..


if you can do this, then i'd believe you.



and for you to think that I dont know how to drive.. ..

kid.. let me tell you that in the last two weeks i've been running the highways at a minimum of 100, and I've come close having 3 deer and two moose for hood ornaments.(within 2 ft.). I've drifted gravel at 80. as well as driving 50 on the road that is so dusty you cant see past your windshield. Drifting takes absolutely no skill.., trust me, i've been driving longer than you have liked cars.


oh and one other thing.. Do what I have and Drift a gravel truck. dipshit.

07-03-2006, 06:29 PM
IMO drifting is cool (since they do it alot in the WRC) but I think EA should focus more on the racing depending on your place at the finish, not points. Why else would they call this game Need for "Speed"?

What does this "drifting" stuff have to do with the forum?

Anyway, even if the game has cops in it, the whole "Underground" feel just "drifts" me away from getting NFS: CARBON.

jakovonline
07-05-2006, 06:17 PM
Now it all depends how good EA will make the cop system to balance our feelings between the bad (drifting) and the good (police)
The cop system in MW was a bit lame since they made it too easy to get away in heat 1. I think they should step it up a little bit with more tactics and more 'ways of damaging' the cops or scenery.
I also think they should make damage cost, like in High Stakes or Porsche Unleashed, not make you invinceable.

SUPRA 06

im sick of how easy the cops are in mw i want there to be like a level 10 in CARBON compared to level 5 in MOST WANTED

jakovonline
07-06-2006, 01:50 AM
I think MW's heat 3 should be heat 1 and you work your way up to heat 10. Now that's a challenge!
EA should also make cops like in the intro video of MW where everyone thinks the orange car belongs to some wannabe racer but is instead an undercover cop car.
e.g. if you challenge a racer to an outrun race he might actually be a cop roaming the streets or if you get into a race, after half a mile the undercover cop might turn his lights and sirens on and start busting people.

NFS CHASER
07-06-2006, 06:19 AM
In real life, heat level 1 would be equel to atleast heat level 2 or 3. I don't know if they should keep the whole heat level system. Maybe they should work in some new system.

Sinister
07-06-2006, 10:32 AM
you know, i bet if the cops got any harder, you'd start complaining that they're too hard and you cant finish the game.

I never said make it harder, but rather put in a new system. If they did make it harder though, that's probably what would happen.

Gamespot has tons of new info including gameplay videos, articles and a developer interview. In the interview at the very end the guy talks about the cops and says the cop expierence has been improved since MW and that they will be a bigger part of the storyline and he said that in a way the cops are even more important than in MW (technically they aren't going to be as physically important as in MW but that's why I said "in a way").

NFS CHASER
07-17-2006, 08:17 AM
If they reuse the heat level system, i hope the way things work are less strict and more open, like say you at heat lvl 1 and the local cops chase after but don't try very hard but the more bounty you get the harder and madder the cop get, so they would start trying harder and usung more tactics, and if your heat lvl escalates to lvl 2 then rather than all the local cops retreating back to base they would try a lot harder because they would realize your more of a threat and they would start driving faster and start using more tactics and along with the marked crown victoria cops as your bounty escalates some undercover cops may join the chase and so on. And if you crash into a traffic car and the driver calls the police rather than (lets pretend your heat lvl was 5 during your last pursuit) a corvette being there, since they don't know your a heat lvl 5 racer they would send out a local cop to investigate and if he recognises you then all of a sudden your bounty and heat lvl start raising rapidly and the local cop will start calling for backup and lots of sport cruisers and will alert all the local cops and undercover local cops in the nearby area that a heat lvl 5 racer is nearby. Or if EA puts in a new system they could make the difficulty of pursuits based entirely on your bounty and how much of it you have.

EDIT:I read that in some of the screenshots you can see a heat level meter. Hers a pic with the heat level meter circled: http://img360.imageshack.us/img360/4929/needforspeedcarbon20060712045237520tq6.jpg (http://imageshack.us)

Need For Speed: Undeground and Need For Speed: Undeground 2 had a little flame on a side of the rev meter (on drag races, I don't remember if Most Wanted had one too).

I dunno. EA is dumb.

Yes, i know this is an old post. Anywho...

Screw us? You don't know how to drive squat. Your one of the best street racers? Street racing is illegal. Your comparing apples to bananas. Would you like it if your car went sideways, killed a dozen people, then crashes into the wall? Sure, in a game, theres no real simulation of you dying while going into the wall (or lamppost), sideways and your car crunching up into a little ball. Your not the best at anything, certainly not at spelling. But who is eh? You can't be the best in strret racing because there is no point to it. "WOOHOO IM DRIVING 200 MPH *crash, blood,death* If drifting is your passion, no offence, but you need to get a life. Everyone is good at drifting, because anyone can turn off ABS, and spin out. Drifting involves downshifting (with abs off) and turning your steering wheel, then turning it back, completing your oversteer type slide. isn't that sooo cool?

I like the idea of Cops being in the game.... But I have to ask something, thats more than likely a stupid question.... I haven't read much into this new game coming out, but is the whole game gonig to be evolved around Drifting?

If so, I can't see myself buying this game.

In my opinion this game will more than likely finish the corruption of the NFS series. I thought after Most Wanted, EA was finally going back to it's roots... Exotics, Cops.... Of course the main story line was so far up the Tunerz World's ***, it made my nuts twitch.

Then what do I see? EA went from doing away with Drifting altogether, to having a game all about it? WTF?? I thank Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift, for this shit. Might as well have 2.4L inline 4s and Supra engines in the muscle cars while they're at it... Might as well just go ahead and **** it up royally. They cant miss anything, might as well be perfect at being so damn retarded.

How is it, this site is supposed to be one of the biggest NFS follower sites, but yet, not one EA employee doesn't take us surious, and consider to at least spread our word to the money hungry bastards at EA?

NFS wasn't about fads. It was about taking high performance exotics and taking them to its limits unrealisticly in exotic fantasy locations... What is it with EA thinking to have the Need for Speed, we have to go Underground and basicly compare Muscle, Tuner, and exotic as one with performance????

I'd love to see the day a 2 ton Civic does 3 seconds in the quarter mile....
I'd love to see the day a Lamborghini drift to the front....
I'd love to see the day a Chevelle with a single fart can hit 140 in 6th gear... (No wait a second..... no I wouldn't)

I'm sorry but Need For Speed is an embarrassment anymore....

Heat Level 3: Chevrolet lumina SS and/or Infiniti G35 Coupe
Heat Level 4: Ford Mustang GT
Heat Level 4 (SUV): Jeep Cheroke

Over at 1UP, you can find a new interview (preview) on Need For Speed Carbon, the interview doesnt add any new info, however, you can find some small amount of info about the cops:

Quote:

What about the cop stuff then? If you played Most Wanted through to the end, you'll no doubt be groaning about the prospect of having to endure more of its crazy pursuit mode. Early on in the game it was perfectly reasonable, but as you worked your way up to the top rank challenges, the expectations the game made were just insane. Anthony assures us that it's been toned down considerably for Carbon, but "it's the same basic structure, with the same way of tracking your 'heat' as in Most Wanted." Although not in the demo we saw, he told us that you'll be pursued by the same types of cop cars this time (basic squad cars, through GTO's and SUVs, all the way up to Corvette pursuit vehicles) but that the challenges "aren't as crazy." Let's hope he's serious.

Well if they would have even toned down the first wave of cops that'd just be silly... It's hard to NOT lose the first few heat levels in MW, I usually try not to let my heat level drop too low because it'll annoy me to have to lead the cops behind me without losing them until they finally bring out the bigger guns...
Probably wont be able to tell how much they crippled the police force until heat 4 or 5.

Why'd they have to stick crown vics on the lowest heat lvl again? It should be You start out just being chased by low skilled crown vics, and then as the heat lvls progress, the crown vics start getting smarter and faster then eventually sport cruisers will start to join the chase along with crown vics and as you get higher heat more sport cruisers participate along with the crown vics.

Technically that'd be realistic, where BOTH crown vics and sport cruisers chase you at the same time.
