HIGHLIGHTS
  • New free track: Torsdalen Circuit
  • New tournament: Racing Legends
  • New tournament reward bundles
We're excited to announce the availability of a new tournament!

And it's not only the tournament, but there's new free track too! As some of you might have already guessed, the name of the track is a homage to the ever so prolific modder Tor Ole Lerbæk who is perhaps better known in the community by his alter ego Very End, whose handiwork this gorgeous rallycross style track is for the most crucial parts. The track comes in two layouts, main and short, in both forward and reverse configurations.

In keeping with the spirit of the new epic track, the tournament challenge is all about racing too. We're tasking you to chase the opponents using Roadslayer GT. You probably already know the drill: the better your position the more score you earn per each meter traveled, plus you get bonus score for each lap as long you keep up a good pace. The best racers (or those who already have enough fame points in the bank) can claim a new paint bundle for the Roadslayer GT from the tournament shop, and while at it, it's also worth checking out the new paint job for the Tristar that's another new addition in the tournament shop.

In other news, we're rolling out the Cup Mode with Qualifying Sessions as well as Spectator Mode on consoles as well, previously only available on PC.

Cup Mode
In Cup Mode, players will be awarded points for any event that they participate in, making it easier to run online cups with multiple events. The cup points are shown in the lobby together with the number of events they player has participated in, and the players are sorted according to the points. To enable Cup Mode, set "Session Mode" in Server Options screen to any of the cup modes.

Qualifying Session
The session can be set to "Qualifying Sprint" or "Qualifying Lap" to determine the starting grid order for the next event. In "Qualifying Sprint" the order is based on the finishing position of the qualifying race, while in "Qualifying Lap" the players will be set according to their lap time posted during qualifying session. * New options for setting the grid order in Server Options screen based on the car performance points, cup mode points or qualifying session.

Spectator Mode
It’s now possible for the Host, Admin or Moderator to set any player (or themselves) as a spectator using the lobby context menu. Any player set as a spectator will not participate in the event but instead will be free to use the photo mode to spectate and direct the event as well as of course stream it. The spectator role will be maintained from event to event until revoked.

Excellent new track, bold move to make it tight and technical and that's great, but please fix the checkpoint exploits.
Excellent new Style for the Roadslayer GT, nice to see that the decals have proper outlines as they always should have, but please fix the resolution, they look pixelated.

The ps4 leaderboard is broken again on the Torsdalen track like the weeklies were during the snowball run tournament. The time trial weekly shows the scores but doesn't fully load either.

Season not loading get fatal error on PS5 at 94%
Yes, for me too. It's not just the season, it's the track.

The Torsdalen track won't load elsewhere on Wreckfest, when choosing it for a custom event. The same fatal error message in big red letters.

Don't know if there any work around for any the consoles getting this vertex buffer memory error. But on the PC side, if lower the Grass setting from Ultra to High or lower should fix this error for now.

Hmm, no post from Bugbear about the hotfix release today?

Minor Update
This minor update contains the following enhancements:

- Fixed game often crashing when loading Torsdalen.
- Improved Torsdalen checkpoints to prevent cheating.

Why don't you ask them to create a long drag strip track. just a straight line. Have the variants just be length settings 1/8mi 1/4mi 1/2mi 3/4mi 1mi 1.5mi 2mi 5 mi. Then folks can test different setting for vehicles.
